    The “Bachelor” Matt – WTA Thoughts, The New ATFR Host and What It Means, & Taylor Nolan’s Past Tweets


    I think it’s fair to say that every single week for the last, oh I don’t know month or so, that something happening off screen has completely overtaken what’s happening on screen with the “Bachelor.” I mean, with the internet frenzy over the weekend in regards to a new ATFR host announcement and the Taylor Nolan tweets that surfaced on Sunday, sitting down to watch the women on the WTA last night was, ummmm, an afterthought. Not a whole lot to cover there, although I do have some thoughts on what we saw last night. But so much more to get to before that as I know a lot of you are certainly in awe of what you saw surface this past weekend. As am I. We’ll get to that momentarily. Remember last week I said it was really weird that the show had promoted the WTA then said “in 2 weeks” essentially before showing clips for the rest of the season? Well, now it’s been confirmed that they’re on normal schedule as I suspected. … Continue reading

    Podcast #223 – Interview with Tom Gipson & Chelsea Orcutt from “Temptation Island”

    We are in full “Temptation Island” mode this week as I have Tom and Chelsea on from season 3 currently airing on USA Network at 10/9c Tuesday nights. I don’t have any spoilers for this season, nor do I want them. These two interviews were recorded separately. Doesn’t mean they are broken up, doesn’t mean they are together. I wouldn’t read too much into that. When you listen to the interview, I think you can draw your own conclusions, but having spoken to both now, I don’t think there’s anything definitive in this 80 minute interview that gives their relationship status away. I guess they’ve been media trained pretty well ha ha. They are quite an interesting couple with some good stories and insight to what being on the show was like. I’ll promote this show until the end of time because I think it’s so much more interesting and real than the “Bachelor.” Yes, it’s still reality TV, but these are real couples who are testing their relationship on TV. Is it normal? No. … Continue reading

    “Reader Emails,” Ratings, IG Growth, & Ivan Speaks Out

    There is so much going on behind the scenes in Bachelor world that sometimes it’s tough to even say anything. Because it’s stuff that I can’t necessarily give details to without compromising sources. I think once this is all said and done I’ll be able to, but as of now, I need to see how things play out the rest of the season and on the ATFR, which is set to tape this weekend. I’ve heard that even might get pushed back a few days now, because as of this writing, they have yet to find a host for the show. ABC is in full scramble mode behind the scenes trying to find an ATFR host, trying to find a host for the show going forward in the immediate future, and locking down their next “Bachelorette.” I think I’m getting closer to finding out the location for next seasons filming. The state I’m sure on. They aren’t going cold weather, so that’s good. But I’m telling you, when I do announce where it is, I … Continue reading
