    Nice title. Just more evidence of NIT trying to pretend to cover real news by tricking stupid people of north Iowa that they are reading a breaking news story. North Iowa today is a disgrace to journalism.

      Thanks Brandon. Glad you enjoy the title of the story, which is totally accurate, by the way. I guess you really enjoy watching the Bachelor … all those shirtless hunks prancing about on TV for your arousal. And you’re right, the story got several thousand views, so all’s well here.

      The tv series “The Bachelor” was filmed in Arlington because Chris- who was the bachelor on that series was from there. This guy was not the bachelor on the show…….. That is the only pun I can see here.. to your point, it has nothing to do with it. This guy needs karma to come back his way.
