The finale of The Bachelor is here and Ben Higgins will be choosing his fiancé in front of millions of viewers. One particular fan has just admitted how horribly addicted he is and he is not afraid to tell the world. Blue Bloods star and New Kids on the Block member, Donnie Wahlberg, recently wrote one hilarious essay on his love for the reality dating show.

Wahlberg penned his feelings and posted them on the Chicago Sun-Times Splash on Monday. He started out by completely empathizing with those husbands and boyfriends that have had to put up with their women fawning over boy band dudes such as himself. He called it karma and a "turning of the tables."

"Sweet revenge for the nice-guy hubbies who had to put up with their wives talking about how hunky Jordan was, cute Joey still is or how much of a 'bad boy' Donnie was, during his Public Enemy T-shirt-wearing rebellious phase. Payback, for all those men who spent their paychecks on surprise New Kids concert tickets for their spouses. The same guys who had to then shell out another $30 for a Jonathan T-shirt, or even more (than I care to mention) for a meet and greet photo op with the band."

The 46-year-old actor/singer then goes on to compare these guys' dilemma to his own addiction to The Bachelor. Donnie says that he knows pretty much everything there is to know about the men and women who compete to be given the final rose on the ABC show.

Not only did he confess his love for all things related to The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but it goes way beyond that as well. He did even more confessing.

"I also watch Bachelor in Paradise, have water-cooler discussions at work about which girl didn't get a rose, make public predictions about which girl will be 'the next Bachelorette' on social media, watch After the Final Rose and anxiously await the season finale of The Bachelor — as if it were the Super Bowl with my hometown Patriots playing."
"I cried, and still cry, watching the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas special, with the abominable snowman. I always feel for Hermie the Elf who wants to be a dentist, and all those screwed-up gifts on the Island of Misfit Toys."

Everyone on social media may be laughing at him, but he doesn't really care because he loves this addiction just like the rest of the world. One thing is for sure, this essay brings so much laughter along with it. Most of Bachelor nation can certainly relate to Donnie Wahlberg. Other male fans may just come out of the closet after reading his humorous post.
