Of course, these biweekly meetings consist of about 15 minutes of poetry and 2 hours of catching up, eating good food, laughing, etc.

That's right ladies: the Bachelor for Wii. You get date cards, compete in challenges, and ultimately stand nervously through a rose ceremony where wii versions of real bachelors (Jason Mesnick, etc.) choose to keep you around or send you packing. IT IS SO AWESOME.

Even Matt got into it.
