    The contestant list, along with their lovely ABC publicity photo head shot were released yesterday:

    http://abc.go.com/shows/the-bachelorette/bachelor-announcement


    Haven't really had a chance to look over the bios and pics yet. Maybe later today, I'll have a comment or two.


    And of course, Reality Steve knows who has gone far but as of right now, I haven't read anything. Probably will wait till after the show debuts on May 23rd.

    These bios are HILARIOUS. One guy says he would want to be Tiger Woods for a day--because of the limitless money. Suuuure. Another guy, when asked if he has pets and what kind, answered "Yes, a Poodle. He's of the special kind." One guy's occupation is "Wine owner." Another says one of his worst attributes is that he's "opinionative"; another says his worst attributes include "listening and patience" (because every woman HATES a guy who is patient and listens to her!). One guy is named "West." One guy says he was "raised in a grain elevator."

    Do they ever find any INTELLIGENT people for this show? Never mind; the answer is obvious. (Okay, I'm a horrible person for judging all these men. . . )

    The pictures look like they were taken at some low-rent cheapo studio.

    LOL, I wish I had known that job pays.

    So what is the story behind the commercial that indicates that Ashley's heart is broken on the first night? I might have to go read Steve.

    I like this too (from Ames, a Banker):

    If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you bring and why? ---A Tolstoy novel because they take forever to understand.

    Sweetie. This is the place to be!!! Pull up a chair! :lol:

    I like the guy who when asked what his favourite books was, ended up saying that he's only read a few books..."cover to cover". :rofl:

    Or William when asked if he has any pets: "No. Roommate has fish."

    These guys must all have KILLER bods, because in the face department...I'm not expecting any of them to get any magazine covers! :p

    We can't really judge from what are consistently the worst publicity/portrait photos in reality tv. Well we can judge of course, but we should also be prepared to rejudge once we see them live. And shirtless.

    :rofl: I noticed the "raised in a grain elevator" and was :huh:

    Rob the Technology Executive from Michigan's bio was pretty funny.

    I'm glad he made that part clear! :lol:

    Did anyone explain why Jeff the 35 yr old Entrepreneur from St. Louis has no picture?

    Some of these guys seem to have a sense of humor. But I don't find any of them to be particularly attractive. :blah: Hopefully the pictures just suck and don't do them justice.

    Ashley was kind of a trainwreck on the Bachelor, but I'm going to keep an open mind for the Bachelorette.

    Cause he's going to wear a mask getting out of the limo and to the meet & greet party. ABC has been running a clip during DWTS and other programs, making this a big deal. I guess like "the slap" last season, to start out Brad's journey.

    Have no idea if Jeff going with a mask was his idea or Fleiss'. My guess: Fleiss!

    Um, weird. If I was the Bachelorette I'd get rid of him first ep, but of course it's not her decision. :lol:

    I think our boy Fleiss was involved in that show "Mr. Personality" where all the male contestants wore masks so I'm not surprised that Jeff is walking around in a mask come opening night.

    Anyone else remember that show!?!

    Yes that is what I though of when I saw the guy in the mask. That was creepy. Fleiss' IMDB page doesn't mention it as one of his.

    Because it is Jeff...

    Probst?

    Or DJ Jazzy? (Or are black people even allowed to apply to be on any Fleiss program??)

    Well our friend Fleiss says that Ashley's season will have:

    "romance, emotion, and biggest jerkface ever on Season 7"


    From the chatter on the net, the jerk is
    Bentley, the Mormon from Salt Lake City, so that should make for good TV.

    Oh yeah, good so far. I hope Michelle Money will be on. If we could only get Jake too.

    I saw Tenley and Kiptyn in the corner at DWTS results show last night - you could see them on the left side of the screen past Tom Bergeron. Guess they are still together.

    Part of me doesn't want Jake on because he's had too many tv shows already, but part of me wants Vienna to get the girls to boot his ass off in the first ep.

    :EVILLE:

    Just an FYI, Ashley's season is done taping.

    Now just have to wait and see how much spoiling Reality Steve does. Without the crazies over at FORT, spoiling isn't what it once was but finding out what's coming up via RS can still be fun.

    This made me LOL for some reason.

    And yes, sadly I remember "Mr Personality" hosted by Monica Lewinsky. I even seem to remember "Green Mask" from that show!

    This show gets sillier and sillier, but I will still probably watch.
    (I actually skipped a few episodes during Brad's season and was proud of myself. :) Are he and Emily finally officially broken up now? I thought I saw this while on line at the supermarket the other day.)

    Also, I was afraid to open the link about Bachelor Pad, because I don't want to see Jake ever again. :) Luckily, now I can still watch BP now.

    Jesse Beck, from Ali's season and Bachelor Pad, got married over the weekend in his hometown of Peculiar, Missouri. Chris & Peyton, Philly Craig and Ty were all in attendance. Guess that rules Jesse out for a repeat appearance on Bachelor Pad.

    And Reality Steve is out with his final four for Ashley's season, for those who want to know ahead of time of who to look out for during the opening Meet & greet.
