That really surprised me.
I've only watched two episodes so far and I must say I'm complelely disinterested. I think the cast sucks. I don't even know or remember who most of these people are... Ryan, Sarah etc.
On the subject of Ryan though, he is my nephew's tennis coach in Minn.
Did they bring the fans in because they couldn't get anyone else to do it?
I read somewhere--Reality Steve, NewFORT, can't remember where--that alot of people had a hard time getting off of work for a month (Fleiss increased the time committed this time around) so maybe that's why the cast isn't as good as past years.
Doesn't help that Ashley's season was so weak in the guy department (Only Nick from her season is on this year) and the last time around, William was a complete dud, Ames left early; only Blake amounted to anything and that's cause he made Melissa go crazy and got the girl over fan fav Michael.
As you go back into past season, lots of these guys have moved on. From Ali's season alone, Roberto has a new girlfriend, Cape Cod Chris is married to Peyton, Jesse Beck is already married with a child, Ty Brown has a serious girlfriend (or he might be married already too), Justin has already been on the show, etc. And pretty much every guy from Jillian's season has been on the show already--Jake, Wes, Michael (twice), Man Code Dave, Juan, Jesse Kovacs, along with Ed & Reid.
Sarah was cast for two reasons: she's best friends with Erica Rose off show and she hooked up with Reid in Vegas at a reunion, though that was never mentioned.
So if Roberto has a new girlfriend, does that mean we get Arie? Or Sean? I hope Arie!!!
No official word that Roberto is out as Bachelor but I've read on a couple of different sites that he's got a special lady in his life now that he's not willing to break up with to do the show.
So that leads us with either Arie or Sean. Fleiss has been running informal polls on twitter and hasn't made a decision. He said that he has been pouring over the footage and its tough to choose the next guy. I'm sure some of the delay has to do with negotiations with one or both abiout how much money, what control the lead will have, etc.
Oh, Fleiss has teased that Ryan Lochte is being looked at too but some ABC exec shot that down on Wetpaint.
Just read Reality Steve's latest blog and he's saying that Roberto is still the main contender to be the Bachelor, that the news that he has a girlfriend is false.
The Arie fans haven't taken this news well and are hoping RS is wrong.
We should know in a few weeks when Bachelor Pad finale is filmed as Fleiss will want to trot out the Bachelor then, like he did last year with Ben.
One more bit of news from Bachelor/ette land, Jillian's new boyfriend is Canadian snowboarder Justin Pasutto. Hope he's a better match than ole 2-girlfriend at home Ed!
I think he's nuts to go all the way back to Roberto if he can get Arie.
One word: Minority
And another word: Cassie
I don't think Fleiss is eager to expose himself to further litigation by casting someone with ties to a main producer like Arie has with Cassie, even if it was years ago. They still dated and had a pre-existing relationship before he was cast on the Bachelorette.
But we'll see.
There's not the drama of the last season's Krazey and Sausage, but Chris and Blakeley manage to bring the weird.
Oh, who am I kidding? This show is pretty lame.
for brand-new viewers!!!
I thought Ryan Lochte was the next Bachelor for some reasons.
I guess Fleiss peed all over the idea?
So its been raining here in New Orleans for days so I spent some time yesterday not doing yard work and trolling around on NewFORT.
Here's what I came up with:
1. Jemily fans are scary about their obsession with Jef & Emily's every move.
2. Roberto went to Costa Rica with Chelsea from Survivor last week. Does this rule him out as the next Bachelor? Who knows.
3. The NewFORTers are adamant that Ryan Lochte not be the next Bachelor and are getting antsy that Fleiss hasn't named anyone yet.
4. Looks like the only two couples to come out Bachelor Pad 3 are Kalon & Lindzi and Blakeley & Tony. Who would have thought that Kalon of all people would be one of the guys to find love.
5. Courtney & Ben recently celebrated their 9 month anniversary. Not sure if they took out the time he was seeing other people during the show's airing!
I can honestly say that Chris is my least favorite person to ever appear on this stupid show. He makes me yearn for Wes, Man Code Dave and Jake!
Speaking of Wes, did you catch his song during Tony & Blakeley's slow dance? I NEVER wanted to hear that song again.
Not a Chris fan either, but that was a potentially brilliant move bringing Erica in to the room with him! Let's see how it plays out...
at Rachel's breakdown!
I loved, loved, loved that Wes' "Love don't come eeeeeeaaaaassssssyyyyy" was playing during Blakeley and Tony's slow dance. Brilliant move by the editors.
I actually like Blakeley so I was glad to see her have a little fun with Tony. And since it pissed Chris off so much, glad to see them win the challenge!
And I agree, Chris' move to have Erica witness his vote was very smart. Dumb of Mike to make his move BEFORE all the votes were cast. Didn't he learn anything from Reid's bumbling attempts at strategy!?
According to Chris Harrison's EW blog this morning, Rachel was going to leave with Michael but he was finally able to talk her into staying. Poor mute Nick having to team up with a reluctant Rachel by default.
The last two episodes have been better for me. Last week's episode was very interesting especially Jamie and all her issues.
Chris is a total pig. Can't stand him. Ed is such a user. Don't ever see him with Jaclyn in the "real world". And is it just me, or does he seem drunk 99% of the time?
Pretty much all of the girls bug me to no end. Especially Sarah and Blakely. Have no idea what LindZi sees in Mr. Plastic Surgery, Kalon.
Sadly, Reid came off as quite dumb in last week's episode. So disappointing.
Agree, it was the funniest moment of the night -- even if it made my ears bleed. Would have been even more entertaining if they'd saved it to use in some scene with Ed, given the Jillian connection.
I liked his quote from next week's preview: "I'm partnered up with a widow."
I cracked up at Wes' song.
And at Erica Rose - she was a riot there at the end.
Smart move by dumb Chris.
Couple of tidbits from Reality Steve's latest blog:
1. Michael had a girlfriend back home while on BP3; and he's with her still. Guess she didn't mind him looking for love on the pad since he was just on there to try to sell more of his music. I don't know if Rachel knew of this girl or not.
2. Blakeley is moving to Portland, Oregon to live with Tony and his son. Rumor is that Tony will pull a Blake and propose at the finale taping, which is being filmed this weekend.
3. RS is still sticking with his "Roberto is the next Bachelor" but is confused by the developments on twitter with Roberto going to Costa Rica with Chelsea from Survivor. I guess we will know soon if Roberto did indeed back out.
Oh, one more thing, both RS and Ashley Spivey mentioned in their recaps that the "Love don't come easy" song choice was very interesting considering that Wes and Blakeley had something going on during one of the reunions.
So how did MeAnna and Stephen Stag get married without us really discussing it (and without ABC there)?
When MeAnna first got engaged to Stephen, they were shopping around a reality TV show and double wedding with Holly & Micheal but there weren't any takers. Then Holly and Michael broke up, got back together, broke up again, Michael cried all over Bachelor Pad 2 when Holly finally moved on with Blake and by then, no one really cared that MeAnna actually had gotten twin Stephen to the altar.
Wow, a wedding held at a barn, complete with hay bales. With bridesmaids wearing boots even. How...2002.
Hay bales never go out of style.
Says the former Hee Haw Honey.
I don't feel like finding Emily's thread but there's major stuff going on with her and Jef.
1. Us Weekly has a new cover story coming out tomorrow saying that at a family reunion for his family over the weekend that he confronted Emily about sex texts to some guy he found on her phone. Big fight, she left, blah, blah, blah
2. Jef and Emily issue strong denial to People magazine yesterday, saying the cheating stories are 100% false, that they are happy, blah, blah, blah.
3. Jef's brother, who was at the reunion, is standing by the US Weekly story 100%
So someone is lying. Is it brother Jef? Is it Jef & Emily? As they all can't be right.
All this cheating drama is hilarious. Did you see Jef's tweet?
"It's crazy what people will do, even family members, to see their name in a magazine."
So he's calling his brother a liar. And now US is saying they are going to talk to the guy that Emily was sexting. The Jemily fans are having a melt down. This is great
Poor Mama and Papa Holm. I'm sure they didn't expect Jef to be calling his brother a liar on twitter when he signed up for this stupid show.
Let all this be a lesson to wannabe famehos:
Your family's sanity isn't worth the 15 minutes of fame after the tabloids get done with you.
I keep dreaming of the day that Hee Haw will make its triumphant return, and I don't mean in rerun form. Until then, I busy myself with alternate tawdry displays of trashy humor, dull-witted men and gratuitous cleavage...hence my viewership of Bachelor Pad.
Emily's rumored sexting buddy is Matt Leinart, backup QB of the Oakland Raiders.
This is not going to end well for her if she was indeed sexting a pro athlete while engaged to Jef. I guess she'll be doing another People magazine cover story soon about how everything went so wrong, blah, blah, blah.
Shoulda picked Arie, that way they both could still sext.
Oh this is juicy. I admit I'm loving it.
My first thought is that you had to know Emily couldn't stay away from a professional athlete.
If Emily thought for a moment that she could get a ring out of Leinart like Kristin Cavallari did with Jay Cutler, she'd be dumping Jef today. But since Leinart has never shown any interest in settling down, all Emily is going to get out of this is some bad press and most probably another broken bachelor/ette engagement.
Gross. Matt Leinart is one of the biggest manwhores around. Emily's even stupider than I thought -- and that's saying a lot.
New conspiracy theory: Fleiss hasn't locked down the next Bachelor yet, so he planted the rumour in the tabs to facilitate a breakup, milk the woe-is-me drama, and capture Jef's "healing journey" as the next Bachelor.
Ugh, if he is the Bachelor, it might be the first season I'd miss.
Monday Movie Night at PeterG's pad!!!
