Ready for a J Crew ad.

It’s been a long time since I added anything to my Things That Are Obvious file, but now seems like the time.

The “Love in the Wild” Season 1 finale is airing tonight from 10 to 11 p.m. on NBC. Mike Spiro and Samantha Woods should win. Not that I even understand at this point what winning would mean. I’m sure they’ve mentioned — oh yeah, there’s a trip around the world or something. It’s like an afterthought, though, because to me winning a show called “Love in the Wild” means you’ve found love in the wild. And more than any other couple, Mike and Sam have found love in the wild.

Heather and Miles look like they're listening to a sermon.

No disrespect to the other finalists, Miles Haefner and Heather Pond, but S&M (ha!) have been together since the beginning of the show. They are Team GQ. If this show had a little more publicity — even a tenth of “The Bachelor’s” — they could be getting major preppy/outdoorsy endorsements.

Samantha, a wedding planner (how apropos), is already talking about introducing Mike to her family. Miles and Heather, on the other hand, seem very close and maybe they will continue their relationship in the real world, but I don’t see it lasting as long as S&M. Not that I know what “lasting” would mean. Six months? A year?

Anyway, I really like this show and I hope there’s a Season 2. But I’d also like there to be some kind of a “Love in the Wild” reunion special after, to give us updates on the couples. I want to know what happened to everyone.

**UPDATE** They did it! Mike & Samantha won. Congrats! Now go learn how to pitch a tent, S&M! (Hee hee)

Samantha and Mike are better than Ashley and anyone. Heck, they may even be better than Ali and Roberto.

To be fair, few things aren’t better than “The Bachelorette” Season 7.

I love “The Bachelorette” and I’ll watch it no matter what crazy shenanigans they pull, but this season has been rough. Still not as rough as Brad Womack + his therapist, but Ashley Hebert’s season is only just now becoming bearable and we’re already at the overnight dates.

On the other hand, “Love in the Wild” is getting better and better every week.

Samantha and Mike are already a stronger couple than Ashley and JP or Ashley and Ben F. on “The Bachelorette.” I don’t see the appeal of Steele, but he and Erica seem to be doing well too. I felt bad for Jason, but he should be glad to be free of Jessica. Derrek is a twat. Ben is a twat, but I love him with Brandee. She brings out the best in him. Theresa and Skip get such little air time I keep forgetting they are there. Heather and Miles are a good team.

But I just love Mike & Sam. They are living out the love story I wanted to see on “The Bachelorette.”

Next week it looks like they are forced to switch partners and someone is carted off in an ambulance Nice.

Are you watching “Love in the Wild”? You should watch. Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC. At least tape it or watch it On Demand. Or just catch up on episodes right here on the official site.

Not that I’m giving up on “The Bachelorette.” I’m not sure if Ashley picks JP or Ben. I said Ben before but I really have no idea. Read all kinds of Bachelor/Bachelorette news/spoilers and fun stuff here at Wetpaint’s site.

And don’t forget: The Greatest Show On Earth is coming soon! Yes! “Bachelor Pad” Season 2 arrives on August 8. Prepare.
