I am excited to be presenting a paper and chairing a panel at Console-ing Passions 2017 at East Carolina University. My paper Are You Watching for the Right Reasons?: ABC/ESPN’s The Bachelor Fantasy League examines the development of reality television fantasy leagues. The paper answers highlights industrial assumptions about gender, competition, and reality television viewership via ABC/ESPN’s creation of the Bachelor Fantasy League. If you are in Greeville, NC on July 29th check out the panel.
Let me know if you want to join my Bachelorette Fantasy League.
