Now THIS Is a Serious Problem
Lately, I've become increasingly concerned about Dr. Daniel Jonas and Chelsea Brady. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. It's clear to anyone with eyesight, and a sense of shame. There can be no disagreement about the wrongness involved. It's just indisputable.
Right? It's so obvious:
Their hair is fug.
Rachel Melvin's haircut is one of those that you catch a glimpse of and you think you must have seen it wrong. Like, obviously she must just have it pulled back in a too-messy bun, or the camera just caught her at a bad angle.
But no. That's actually it. What in the effing eff is that effedupedness?! What are those pieces in the front? What is the
possible logic in that? Did her stylist say something really offensive halfway through the cut, necessitating a quick escape in a fit of righteous indignation? Or is this what we have to look forward to now that 98% of women in this country have realized that no, they cannot pull off the Posh bob?
Why do genetically blessed people insist on sullying themselves?
Speaking of which, Shawn Christian is, as I think I may have mentioned, the tiniest bit totally freaking hot. I'm even starting to like the character of Daniel a bit more now that he's dialed back the surfer-speak a bit. However:
Is the good doctor morally opposed to a nice trim, especially on the sides? (And no, there was nothing dirty in that sentence. Ew. This storyline clearly has done bad things to your brain.)
I was in college during the grunge era and let me share a little secret with the guys out there: You got laid in spite of your hair, not because of it. We were all kind of wasted and mesmerized by Pearl Jam, and desperate to get out of our ugly torn jeans and flannel shirts. We were willing to overlook a lot. But Singles was 15 years ago, my hirsute friends. Ditch the Flowbee and get thee to a salon.
This guy is supposed to be a famous surgeon. I don't even care if
this cut is designed to be in character because Daniel wishes he were a
beach bum; it's distracting from Shawn Christian's hotness, and that is
not okay. I just keep looking at those little flippy pieces on the side and
start pondering the state of hairdressing in America and I lose all
track of the storyline (probably a good thing -- hey, this is a
brilliant plan!). But between the hair and the icky
pursuing-his-patient-who-is-half-his-age things I start to wonder what
the hell I'm supposed to see in this creep and then I --
. . . I'm sorry, what was I saying?
