Betty Ford once said of her husband, "I always accuse him of marrying me to give himself a respectable image. " Without a wife, what's a presidential candidate to do? There are three bachelors already in the 1992 race: Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, Douglas Wilder of Virginia and Jerry Brown of California. Two are divorced. Brown has never married.

Getting on a game show was on my list of "Things to Do in L.A. " So was finding a stunning blond California girl. So, after I was rejected for "Scrabble," I decided "The New Dating Game" might fulfill two goals. Auditions were tough. A few dozen guys nervously gathered at the Sunset Gower Studios, eyeing each other and filling out forms.

It's not long into The Bachelor before Chris O'Donnell utters the dreaded six-letter F-word, which strikes fear into the hearts of seriously uncommitted males everywhere: The Future. In the case of Gary Sinyor's by-the-book comedy, the letter also stands for feeble and formulaic. The Bachelor trots out one of those ideas whose lame implausibility can't possibly sustain a feature, and then proceeds to beat it into insensibility. For O'Donnell's Jimmie Shannon, the moment of untruth arrives after three years of dating Anne (Renee Zellweger)

Helene Eksterowicz takes a demure sip of her Diet Coke, lays on a thousand-watt grin, and issues a proclamation: The Bachelor babe is a proud Jersey girl, and if anyone has a problem with it, too bad. Specifically, she won't brook any back talk about the proud dock town where her family has lived for generations. "Gloucester's a small town," she says. "When the chips are down, we pull together. I never had a problem growing up here. " Eksterowicz, 27, a school psychologist who still lives with her parents in the house where she grew up, is one of two finalists in ABC's ratings-star romance reality show, The Bachelor.

Stuart Parmet would seem to have it all. At 37, tall, with boyish good looks, he has plenty of money, a carefully restored house near the Art Museum, his own hot tub, a glossy new BMW, a thriving business. And women. Boy, does he have women. Women, women everywhere, and not a one he'd marry. Parmet is one of 1.88 million American men between the ages of 35 and 44 who have never married - a group whose numbers have more than doubled since 1980, when there were 929,000.

Americans who go to college earn more money and are more likely to be employed than those who don't. These cold facts underlie President Obama's promising plan to offer a community college education at no cost to students. Employers today are requiring more education even for entry-level positions. In five years, 35 percent of job openings are expected to require at least a bachelor's degree, and another 30 percent will require some college education or a two-year associate's degree, according to a Georgetown University study.

Philadelphia real estate investor Shawn Bullard had everything a man could ever want. Almost. He had a solid football career at Temple and even had a short-lived stint in the NFL. He's a highly successful entrepreneur who long ago passed the millionaire mark. And he knows he's loved - his mother Maggie works with him, giving the 33-year-old plenty of support and, if needed, some scolding. He's even had a satisfying dating life. One could say the West Oak Lane native is a bit of a player.

South Jersey, with its relative dearth of four-year colleges, appears to have adopted a new venue for delivering bachelor's degrees to residents: community colleges. Following a national trend, professors from universities including Rowan and Rutgers-Camden are increasingly traveling to teach on the county campuses, offering bachelor's programs as part of new partnerships with the two-year schools. After completing an associate's degree, community college students can transfer to a four-year program and complete a university bachelor's degree right where they are. "Some of it has to do with capacity.

Nicki Minaj was the last of the judges to make an appearance, emerging from her limo in a stunning drum majorette hat. Pecking order established. Ain't no party until Ms. Nicki arrives. She then set about dominating the program, mugging endlessly for the camera, spewing nonsense phrases, monopolizing the conversation, drifting into a bizarrely posh English accent, making up crazy nicknames for everyone on the set, and visually fondling every good-looking male contestant.

The "bachelor's package" at the Penthouse Club in Port Richmond includes an invitation onstage and doting attention from the dancers. But for one Montgomery County man, it also came with internal bleeding, according to a lawsuit filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court last week. Patrick Gallagher of Lansdale claims a dancer slid down a stripper pole and landed on him with such force that his bladder ruptured. The incident occurred in late November 2010, when Gallagher visited the club on Castor Avenue near Balfour Street with friends to celebrate his impending marriage, said his attorney, Neil T. Murray.
