If anyone didn’t see my tweet yesterday, I’ll repeat exactly what I wrote. If I was 100% sure of who Ali chose, I’d would say so. But I’m not. I could find out tomorrow. It could be next week. I have no idea when the info will come to me. I’ve released 95% of every single thing that happens this season. If I knew who she picked, why wouldn’t I release that now with everything else? I want to get it all out there as soon as possible. I just don’t know yet though. So until I do, I guess people will just have to wait. Some people are even mad because they think I know and I’m holding out just to get people to come to my site. Uhhhhh, no. Not even close. I hate to break it to you, but people are gonna come to the site regardless. For every one person who says they’ll never read me because they don’t want to know the ending, there’s fifty that do. The last thing I’m worried about is losing readership. In fact, I love it when people tell me they won’t read me anymore. Why? Because I know that means there’ll be ten to twenty people right behind them who hadn’t heard of me yet that will find me.
As for those that really don’t want to know what happens this season, hell, the finale doesn’t air til Aug. 2nd. It’s going to be literally impossible for you not to hear from someone, somewhere, in some walk of your life who ruins it for you. So you might as well read it now and save yourself the agony. You really don’t think in two and a half months you won’t hear anything? Please. If you have an email account, and you read the internet at least once a day, I guarantee you’ll hear by the end of the who she chose once I do end up finding out. It’ll spread like wildfire. And ABC won’t care. Sure they’re scrambling now trying to find the leaks, but what’s the point? It’s out there already. There’s nothing they can do about it at this point. Just accept it, avoid all questions (as you’ll see Chris Harrison do in this next clip), and just give the same canned answers you’ve been giving all week. They know their whole season is already out there, and their best plan of action is just to ignore it.
My girl Laura Saltman from “Access Hollywood” got a sit down interview with Chris that I thought she did really well on. Why? Because she didn’t ask the softball questions that most other media members do. Like, “So, how was this season?” “What can we expect of Ali?” “Tell me about all the traveling. Wasn’t it so much fun?” Barf. Those people should have their media credentials revoked. Watch Laura (who obviously reads the column) question Chris about a couple things, and watch him completely avoid the question and never answer it. Good job, Laura. Sucky answers, Chris.
Is it just me, or did someone piss in Chris’ Cheerios that morning? Talk about ornery. Yikes. He seems annoyed that he’s already answering questions about stuff happening this season and the first episode hasn’t even aired. Sorry Chris. But that’s what they pay you big bucks for.
Three quotes from Chris that I’d like to comment on:
“Ali has a fear of not being loved…as we’ve seen in her past, she’s been beat up in love.” This is Chris’ favorite line already this season. Laura specifically says, “We’re hearing this season there might be two guys with girlfriends”, and this is the answer he starts in with. Uhhh, that didn’t answer her question, Chris. He’s said it in just about every interview he’s given. He’s constantly going to remind all of this season that Ali has a fear of not being loved. Could mean something. Could mean nothing. Just remember even after I told everyone Jake picked Vienna, every person who listened to Jake in interviews afterwards dissected every word he said and was convinced he had dumped her. Wrong. People read too much into what Chris and the “Bachelor/ette” say. Remember, they know the outcome. They’re coached to say certain things to get you thinking a certain way. Jake knew exactly what he was doing when he made it seem like he was with no one. So I don’t read anything into what Chris is continuing to repeat. All I know is that he’s saying it over and over and over already.
“Our show is a microcosm of what’s going on in the world.” Uhhhh, no it’s not dude. Last time I checked, Ali and “Rated R” Rego weren’t discussing global warming. Nor are they talking Health Care, the automotive industry, or the war overseas. Yes, I see what Chris was trying to relate it to, in that, this show is no different than regular people who go out on dates. Yes it is. I’ve been on plenty of first dates before. None of them consisted of helicopters, different countries, bungee jumping, tight roping in downtown LA, or picnics at the Hollywood sign. So no, it’s not a microcosm of the dating world, and it’s so far removed from reality, you can’t even comprehend it.
“There weren’t blogs and that type of crap back when we started.” Touchy, touchy Mr. Sensitive. Have the times changed? Of course. When this show first started in 2002, he’s right. There was no Facebook, or Twitter and blogs and message boards weren’t that prevalent at all. But now that they are, and now that they are the exact thing that is causing the spoilers of his show to get out, he seems to think that’s a bad thing. Are there crappy blogs out there? Of course. But not all of them are. Especially ones that are given correct information and are credible. The times have changed, and Chris claims, the show has changed with the times. That I’ll agree with. But once again, Laura chimed in with, “But you guys are still pretending it’s a show about falling in love” and Chris never addressed that. He can talk all he wants about how this is real, and he should because he’s the host and that’s his job. But when your own creator of the show is admitting that they look for villains to cast, don’t sit there and tell me that Ali needed to find out about “Rated R” Rego all by herself. Please. You knew early on in the process you had a “girlfriend back home” storyline in your back pocket, and don’t think for a second Ali truly wanted to keep Justin around for six episodes. She was obviously nudged and told to keep him around because he was good TV, and not because they thought there was ever a chance in hell she’d pick him.
