    So I'm bored today at work so I thought I'd nose around FORT and see what's up with Ali's filming. And its done! Everyone is back in the States and the premiere will be on May 24th.

    Since I really didn't care for Ali last season, I decided to catch up on the spoilers. Ok, I read the spoilers every season, no matter what!

    Some interesting stuff so far! Looks like Fleiss and company have done a great job with casting some real tools! Just think of a bunch of Dave's from Jillian's season! Hopefully they'll be a Reid or two in the mix but I doubt it.

    Looking forward to another fun filled season of bad fashion, drinking, "man code" breaking, egos, and tears!!

    I *might* watch this given that my only other summer show is BB - although I don't like Ali much, and I did kinda like Jillian (at least until she picked Ed). If you could kindly provide a link to the best one-stop shop for boot order, I'd be most grateful. :)

    This thread on FORT's Spoiler board is a good summary of what they know so far:

    http://www.fansofrealitytv.com/forums/bachelorette-spoilers/86242-quick-recap-4-22-2010-a.html

    Post #86 has a tenative boot order but they don't know the names of a couple of the guys who make it to the end.


    Of course Reality Steve knows everything and is planning on spilling what he knows about Ali's season in a bit. When he posts, I'll let everyone who wants to be spoiled, know. And as usual, feel free to PM if you don't want to bother wading through RS and/or FORT.

    According to RS, Justin is this year's Vienna/Wes and will be hated by EVERYONE. Can't wait for that!

    Ali is one of my least favourite Bachelor/ette characters ever.

    That said, I'm hoping the residence will have one LARGE pool/jacuzzi area and that each man will have access to a limitless speedo collection.

    :)

    Didn't hate Vienna. Liked her better than Ali for sure.

    I liked Ali at the beginning of the season, but couldn't stand her after she was so hateful about Vienna (not that I liked her much either). Then the whole whiny I can't stay because of my job and then "calling" to try to get Jake back.... :scream:

    I think I'll watch for the trainwrecky possiblities...

    I have to admit that when I heard she was the new Bachelorette, I was :scream:. I thought maybe they would go for Tenley, but one advantage of Ali over Tenley is that she has a much stronger personality and will create lots of :drama:, I'm sure. Tenley would have been very tame and :yawn: as the Bachelorette. I'll still be :watch:.

    I don't think I could watch Tenley as the B'ette. She seems like a nice girl, but her voice drove me crazy.

    I don't think I could listen to Tenley for another season.

    I'm not really as big a fan of the Bachelorette as I am of The Bachelor. The girls on the Bachelor just make me laugh because of how desperate they seem.. which I guess is kinda mean, but if you're gonna put yourself on national tv you kinda deserve it :lol:

    If Jake and Vienna could have simply rushed their break-up, then Vienna could have been the Bachelorette. :rofl:

    I liked Ali at the start, but wound up not liking her at all after all her games and drama. If they had to recycle, I'd have preferred Gia. So I am all for a huge trainwreck of a season.

    Oooh now I'm getting excited for the trainwreckiness of it!! I've promised myself I wouldn't spoil it this time. I spoiled Jake's season and didn't bother to watch the last few episodes... I kept hoping the spoilers were wrong...

    Anyway, can't wait for the boys!! :D

    Just an FYI, the bios of the guys are up on ABC now.

    Be interested in seeing which one ends up as the next Bachelor. that's half the fun now, trying to figure out from the edit/fan boards who will be selling their soul to Fleiss for their shot at fame and fortune!!

    I didn't either, but I think PeterG is just anticipating the inevitable.

    Photos of the guys here:

    http://tv.yahoo.com/show/34988/photos/20

    I already watched the premiere.

    Ali's definitely gained some weight and has these terrible hair extensions.

    Some definite oddballs, including Jonathan the weather guy and Frank who I'm not so sure is into girls. Some really sad backstories as well. And wait until you learn how one guy got the nickname "Shooter."

    Spoiler:

    I guess I'm in the minority here because I liked Ali. She was smart to run from Jake even if she did cry. Being able to support yourself is a safer move than depending on a wimp like Jake. I checked out the photos of the guys & was struck by the resemblance between Hunter & former Bachelor Jason. Anyone else see it?

    Please. She ran from Jake into a starring role in her own season.

    Exactly! I know its all staged, but that whole job drama seemed even more melodramatic than usual, or necessary... :rolleyes:

    Yes, I was definitely joking about Vienna and Jake breaking up. She should have nicely asked Jake to dump her in some horrible way so that she could have snatched the Bachelorette gig out of Ali's hands... :lol:

    Are you sure this isn't the cast of the next season of "Average Joe"? (Where's the pretty???) :(

    :respec:

    I've read in two different places online that Ali has been trying to become a reality TV star for many years now.

    I know, meh! Not TV boyfriend material. I hope some of them look better in person than in their photos.


    Re the Jake Ali phone call where she asked to come back, Reality Steve points out that when the phone rings, Jake is in the bathroom washing his hands. No watch on his wrist. But a nanosecond later when he rounds the corner to answer the phone, behold, his watch is on his wrist. Answer the Phone: Take 2.

    From a recently Entertainment Weekly:

    Hmm...wonder if this will be as craptastic as "The Challenge: Fresh Meat 2". :cheer2: :respec: :watch: :rofl: :cheer:

    I'm hopeful, too. Maybe it'll be like the season with plain-looking guys like Jeremy and Jason who as soon as they took their shirts off revealed chests big enough that would not fit onto my wide-screen TV. :grope: I'm still hot for Jeremy, who I'm sure I thought looked average when I first saw his pic. :)

    Is it just me or do some of these guys have really small heads compared to their shoulders?

    You've got it all wrong. They have average sized heads and REALLY big shoulders.
