WATCH: Barbara Walters “Deeply Offended” By The Bachelor


By Daniel Gates



Barbara Walters blasted “The Bachelor” on “The View,” calling the dating reality series a “degradation to women.”

The TV icon, who earlier called the show “stupid” and slammed Ben Flajnik, told the other panelists that she watched this season’s controversial finale and found herself “deeply offended.”

“It’s a crock!” Walters said of the show, noting, “Not a single Bachelor has married the women he chose in the finale!”

She went after Flajnik again (“an ordinary guy with bad hair”) and told devoted “Bachelor” fan Elisabeth Hasselbeck, “I do not know how [your husband] Tim puts up with you.”

Do you agree with Walters’ harsh assessment of “The Bachelor”?
