“Bachelorette” Spoilers Q&A Plus My Canadian Television Debut

May 14th, 2010 | 14 Comments | Posted in The Bachelorette 6 - Ali

Like I didn’t see this one coming. Ha ha. It’s funny, I give out who the final two guys are in Ali’s season, Chris Lambton and Roberto Martinez, and now everyone out there with a blog or website says they know who she chose. Really? You do? Ummmm, where were you before Tuesday then? Look, I’ve seen some sites say it’s Chris, I’ve seen some sites say it’s Roberto, I’ve had people email me in private saying their “sources” are telling them it’s Chris, others saying it’s Roberto, etc. So no one knew Frank, Chris, or Roberto’s last name before Tuesday, yet now they know how the finale shakes down? Hilarious. I guess half the people will be right, and half will be wrong. That is, if she picked anybody. Honestly, I still have not found out what happened in the finale and I’m not going to try and pretend I do. When I am 100% confident, then I will tell. Everything else you hear right now is pure speculation. I think by now people know I don’t pull and punches on this site and just throw a bunch of sh*t out hoping it sticks. I report exactly what I’m told happens and let people decide if they want to believe it. Chris vs. Roberto I’m sure will be an interesting debate up until I find out the winner and what happened in the finale. It’s just funny to see it playing out already as people take sides without barely having seen them on TV yet.

ABC released the head shots of all 25 guys on Wednesday, and I must say, judging from the response I’ve been getting over email, they are taking a beating. I guess the angry housewives wanted better looking guys to drool over. Personally, I loved the fact that they all did an Abercrombie & Fitch pose with their thumbs in their jeans pockets. By the way, did they just have one pair of jeans for the whole shoot and pass it around to every guy? Go on ABC’s site and look at the guy’s head shots. Then read some of the comments underneath each guy. It’s laughable. Some crazies out there actually think they can tell who Ali should end up with just from a head shot. Honestly, I feel those people should not be allowed to reproduce. If your mind is so far out of whack, and you’re getting that worked up over some guys head shots, and think you can tell what kind of personality they have by how they do their hair or what kind of shirt they have on, you’ve got serious, serious problems. Viewers of this show scare me. Really, they do. I’ve seen the emails, I’ve read the comments, I listen to what people say. It’s absolutely frightening how much emotion this season has stirred up in people, AND THE FIRST EPISODE HASN’T EVEN AIRED YET! Let’s just take one collective deep breath everyone, and calm down. The lunatics are already out in full force and we’re still ten days away from the premiere. Yikes.

I made my national television debut in Canada on Wednesday night appearing via Skype on “Entertainment Tonight”. I’m sure they were thrilled to have me after all the lovely things I’ve said about their country over the past few seasons. You’re welcome Canada. Thank you for accepting me with open arms. I would love to be an ambassador to your country. Anytime you want me up there riding on a horse in my mountie gear, you let me know. The clip was pretty short, and nothing that I didn’t really say in Tuesday’s column. Of course, they wanted to know about their own, Justin Rego and the scandal. Won’t be long before Justin is the most hated person in Canada. He’s making enemies one day at a time. Check out the clip from Wednesday:

Wait, Brody Jenner is banging Avril Lavigne? How did I miss this? I thought that was just another rumor being floated around? Apparently not. Sucks she won’t be appearing on the “The Hills”. I still wanna know what happened to the winner of Brody’s “Bromance” show. Did Frankie and that other leech friend of his disapprove of this guy and kick him to the curb?

I told you I would answer any and all questions to the best of my knowledge that you had after releasing the spoilers for the season on Tuesday. Some good questions, some intriguing questions, and plenty of stupid ones. So without holding back, I answered every question to the best of my ability. Here we go:

1. “Based on Frank leaving at the final three to be with his ex, do you think the next ‘Bachelor’ will be whoever Ali doesn’t pick between Roberto and Chris?”

Really? It’s May 14th, the season hasn’t started yet, and I’m expected to know who the next “Bachelor” is? I’m still trying to wrap my head around the craziness of this season. I have absolutely 100% no clue who the next “Bachelor” is going to be, and neither does anyone else. The show’s track record for five seasons in a row now has been to recycle someone from the previous season. So I guess, yeah, if Ali chooses someone, it’ll could possibly be from one of the favorites who finishes in the Top 6 or so. But do I know who they have in mind? Not a clue. It’s all speculation at this point.

2. “Did Jessie and Jessica really not know each other before they both got on the phone with Ali to tell her about Justin?”

Yes. Kimberly told me that Jessica found Jessie through Facebook since they’re both from the Toronto area. They had never spoken before Jessica contacted her to ask for help in getting in touch with ABC.

3. “What makes Kimberly so reliable? Do you think that ABC purposely had her contact you?”

HUH? ABC wants nothing to do with me. Most former contestants that I’ve either become friends with or became an acquaintance of, have all told me the same thing: ABC tells them under no circumstances are they to talk to me. Some of the smart ones like Wes, Megan, and Rozlyn, chose not to listen because they felt screwed by the show and wanted their side out there. I’m fine with that. In fact, I encourage it. Yes, Kimberly is not a former contestant, nor is she under ABC’s control. However, there’s not a chance ABC told her to contact me because she never did. Someone tipped me off to her and I contacted her. The last thing this show wanted was to have their biggest scandal this season get released two weeks before the first episode even aired. So no, they did not purposely have Kimberly contact me.

4. “ABC had to know that Justin was out to promote his career and not be there for Ali. Why did they cast him in the first place?”

Did you watch the ABC 20/20 special the week after Jake’s finale? They admit that they cast villains on this show. It’s part of what they do. If all 25 guys were Casper Milktoast and really all there for Ali looking to be her husband, the show would be boring as hell. This show is not about finding a husband/wife, falling in love, and living happily ever after. If it was, they’d be 19-for-19 in producing a marriage. Instead, they’re 2-for-19. Of course they cast for roles. And of course not every guy is there for Ali. When has that ever been the case? They knew EXACTLY what they had when they cast Justin. And Justin knew EXACTLY what he had to do once he was cast for the show. It’s a win-win for both of them. In case you haven’t noticed, the last person ABC cares about in this whole mess is Ali. Their job is produce an entertaining television show, not find Ali a husband.

5. “How did ABC not know Justin had a girlfriend back home?”

They didn’t know until Jessica contacted Jessie, who then in turn, contacted ABC. That is 100% fact. I just know that any guy who gets far enough in the interview process is never going to admit he has a girlfriend back home anyway. Why? Because then he won’t get cast. Look, the people that go on this show are good looking people. Do we honestly think they need to appear on TV to find a date? Please. Every single one of them goes on with some sort of agenda. Whether it’s just to be on TV, or to promote a career, or just to have a good time. No one goes on thinking they’re going to win. They go on to say they did something adventurous, meet new people, and if something develops out of it, great. But you have to have a bit of narcissism in you to want to be on this show or else you would never agree to go on it. Some are just more open about it than others. And Justin is one of them. I think it was easy for him to hide Jessica from the show. The guy probably never thought in a million years she was gonna do what she did.

  1. Well, I finally looked at the photos on ABC’s website. They are so airbrushed that most of the guys look really bland and made of plastic, and their good looks (if they have any) are not apparent. I like Roberto’s eyes, though — his eyebrows, not so much. But if they have those eyes under them, then they are o.k.

  2. *sigh* knowing that Jerk-Justin is Canadian is sad. Knowing that he lives in the same city as I do is even more sad. What a loser this guy is!

  3. Frank kinda looks like he might be gay. That would be a first if one of the final 3 admits he’s gay!

  4. Wow, I’m interested in this whole Frank situation. Thanks for all the updates Steve!

  5. Steve-

    Love knowing all the details of the Bachelorette ahead of time! Now I can focus on the final 4 from the very beginning.

    As far as American Idol, I have to say that I totally called the top 4 awhile back (to my friends) to be Crystal, Lee, Casey, and Mike. and, if you look at the comments section of your American Idol Recap of 4/13/10, I wrote: “I agree with who went home this week, and I’m hoping for the top 3 to be Lee, Crystal, and Casey. Who I prefer to win depends on how those 3 perform from here on out.” So, I guess I’m happy about the outcome so far. I think Casey should go home next to finalize the inevitable Crystal-Lee finale, with whoever winning being whoever perfroms the best on finale night. Not that it really matters who wins since they’ll all get record deals. Look at Daughtry, who only made it to the top 4 his season (I wanted him to win, so i was pretty angry). Favorite season, however, was the David Cook season. Best finale ever, and my favorite American Idol musician, besides Carrie Underwood.

    I know American Idol has taken a beating this year, but I think Crystal and Lee are just as good as past contenders (and better than many of the past winners and finalists). I just think people are tired of the competition b/c it’s been on for so many seasons now. I mean, can you really say that Crystal and Lee aren’t better singers and musicians than Justin Guarini, Diana DeGarmo, Bo Bice, Katharine McPhee, Taylor Hicks, Blake Lewis,and Jordin Sparks? Really? Maybe some of those are okay, but seriously, Crystal and Lee will do well in the industry, in my opinion. I doubt either will obtain the stardom of Daughtry and Carrie Underwood, but we’ll see. I could see both of them being as successful as David Cook at least,if not more so. We’ll see!

  6. Hi Reality Steve :) ,

    What I find to be interesting is that for the last few seasons, the bachelor/bachelorette who was chosen for the date involving an adrenaline rush/arousal (scaling buildings, bungee jumping, tight roping, etc.) ended up in the top 2! I don’t know if you’ve ever heard of misattribution of arousal, the process whereby people make mistaken inferences about what is causing them to feel the way they do. Many studies have been done on this and they show that people often mistaken an adrenaline rush from sky-diving (or something equally arousing) for a connection with whoever they are with at the time. Definitely happens on this show! If you don’t know about this concept, I encourage you to look it up…might be something interesting to include in your blog.

    Sincerely,
    Ashley

  7. Steve –

    I found your sight a couple years ago and found you to be very funny and I looked forward to your posts each week during the Bachelorette/Bachelor season. You really added to my entertainment of the whole thing. I thank you for that.

    Since last season when you had the scoop from day one you have increasingly become un-funny and completely full of yourself. Your posts have more content in them about you than what you are supposedly reporting or commenting about. Between that and the fact I’m not at all interested in watching Ali whine all season, I’m going to take a break from this show and this site. When I think of Ali and her season I just imagine everything I didn’t like about Deanna and Jake all rolled into one. ughhhhhhhh

    I’ll come back next go around and see if I can get my interest back and if not, I’ll find something else to watch.

    Take care -

  8. so much for trying to stay off of here before the spoilers were posted. oh well esp since I do not care for Ali at all. What strikes me as interesting is how feminine (and I mean lady-like, not metrosexual) many of guys look. Obviously pictures don’t tell the truth but it is just an impression. and don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the company of many gay men but since this is a show where boys are supposed to like girls it seems odd. And I agree they are not very attractive either …not that it matters, I am just ‘sayin

  9. Poddington — the guys usually look MUCH better on the show, the ABC publicity shots are always bad (for some reason). They look like they handed them off to an intern for Photoshop practice.

  10. “They look like they handed them off to an intern for Photoshop practice.”

    Yes, great comment!

  11. After watching just a few clips/previews, i don’t know if i’ll be able to handle Ali’s laugh all season. I’m looking forward to Monday, but the screechy laugh is already driving me crazy. ugh!!!
