Fantasy sports is a multibillion-dollar industry and you can't make that much money without people really enjoying the experience.

Whether it's the weekly popularity of fantasy football or the grind of fantasy baseball, people can't get enough of adding, dropping, waiver-wire stalking and immense frustration. No matter what misfortune befalls them—an underperforming star, an injury, a trade or general bad luck—fans will flock back to fantasy games because it is what keeps them connected to the sport. Fans invest in their favorite players on their favorite teams and win money. What's not to love?!

Nothing comes close to the fun of fantasy sports.

Say what you will about "The Bachelor" and all of its iterations, but there is something inclusive about fantasy "Bachelor."

While reality television is usually geared toward women, men have been flocking to the series to laugh and cry with each contestantand also take part in "Bachelor" fantasy leagues. Sure, you're still picking people to do your bidding, but instead of quantifiable data, you're choosing personalities who match, predicting outcomes based on behavior, analyzing editing techniques and breaking down trailers to predict the outcome of the contest.

Watching grown men sacrificing their bodies for entertainment is no fun, but watching people shamelessly blurt their most intimate secrets on television is. Fantasy "Bachelor" is superior!
