    “Ex on the Beach” – Nell Kalter’s Episode 1 Recap

    1.7K

    Welcome to MTV’s Ex On the Beach, a social experiment the founders of television could never have expected to transpire, not even on the days they drank straight scotch until they saw only static. This program brings reality stars and “social media stars” – and if you’re not already sighing heavily, we can never be friends – into a gorgeous villa in Hawaii so they can be manipulated while cameras film every second of their inebriated time. Join me from the comfort of your sofa (where, hopefully, there’s nary an ex in sight) as we witness fitness models, a DJ, and former contestants from shows like Big Brother, The Bachelor, and Are You the One as they head to what they pretended to believe would be paradise until the producers revealed the real plot: that their exes would eventually wash upon the shores like debris and subsequently scatter the senses of every single person present.

    I suppose I’m entering into these proceedings in a rather cynical manner, but let’s call it like it is, yes? … Continue reading

    Podcast #74 – Interview with Former “Bachelor/ette” Producer Michael Carroll

    3.4K

    The name of this week’s podcast guest might not jump out at you, but you can bet this is certainly one of the more interesting ones you’ll hear. Michael Carroll is a former producer on the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” back in it’s early seasons and you may have read some of his interview in Amy Kaufman’s “Bachelor Nation” book. Once I read him, I knew I had to have him on at some point. We’ve all heard the stories, we all see some of the backlash that producers from this show get. I’m the first to call out production for certain tricks and tactics they use and these are all addressed with Michael. He’s very open and honest about his craft, what he does, how he does it, and has a lot of interesting insight into the business that maybe a lot of people still don’t understand. Really learned a lot from Michael in this conversation and I think it will open your eyes to a few things as well. Producers vs. editors is probably … Continue reading

    We’ve finally arrived. Seems like just yesterday Becca was starting her season. Now we’re down to the final four. As I say every season, takes a month of filming to go from 28 down to 4, but then it takes three weeks to go from 4 down to 1. The season started on March 15th and your first hometown date is tomorrow, April 18th. So right on schedule with the final rose ceremony happening somewhere around May 8th, give or take a day. Since there’s been so many public dates this season, and I’ve been spoiling who’s left for the last 3 locations, there shouldn’t be much of a surprise as to who got the four hometown dates. But I have your dates and locations for the final four as well. What’s interesting is when I tweeted out this past Sunday about Becca’s three 1-on-1’s in the Bahamas from Friday thru Sunday, it pretty much solidified producers (and Becca) already knew who was getting hometowns before they even arrived in Bahamas with the final 6. … Continue reading
