After a tough day of putting up with students, English teacher Mark Hernandez finds comfort in the hit reality TV show “The Bachelor.” After having the show recommended by colleagues, Hernandez recently decided that it was time to dive in.

Hernandez tentatively dipped his toe into “The Bachelor” pool before committing for the long-term. “I came to the show for the right reasons, came looking for a show to fall in love with,” he said. “I was a little nervous at first, but I let down my walls and fell in love with the show.”

Hernandez was initially cautious of the show, having experienced past history and heartbreak with reality TV shows. “I’ve been hurt before by other shows,” he said. “They were a bit phony and weren’t authentic.” With “The Bachelor,” however, Hernandez has found a show he sees a future with. “As soon as I started watching, I felt an instant connection; I could see myself watching ‘The Bachelor’ for the rest of my life,” he said.
