Remember, for this seasons spoilers, click on the either of the two links under the banner above (Part 1 & Part 2) for all your answers regarding what happens this season. Part 2 is about how everything went down with the Justin phone call from last night, how Jessica contacted me back in January about Justin and I igorned it, etc. It gives a little clarity to what we saw last night.
I’m surprised this topic has reared its ugly head again, but I might as well address it. That is the fact that some people are still bothered that I post spoilers. I don’t know what to tell you guys. I see my daily, monthly, and yearly numbers for this site. Ever since I started giving away spoilers, this site has basically increased its viewership by numbers I couldn’t have ever imagined in a million years. So just because you and your group of friends that watch the show on Monday night don’t want to be spoiled, trust me, plenty of other people do. In fact, so many more people thank me now for providing spoilers because it gives them a different way to watch the show and see through all the phoniness. The bottom line is, this isn’t 2003 anymore. We’re not watching a show just breaking on to the scene. We’re not watching Ryan and Trista anymore. We live in a world of Twitter, Facebook, tabloid magazines, and TMZ where everyone has to know everything the second it happens. That’s just the way it is. The show has become more about the tabloids than it has about what actually happens on Monday nights. I’ve never given away spoilers so people will stop watching the show. They’ll always keep watching. I’m only doing what the audience is calling for in 2010. People will never get sick of spoilers, whether you want to believe that or not. And considering this month of June has been the biggest month in terms of viewership in my site’s history, I’m guessing that’s not changing anytime soon.
The last time I checked, the winner of “Top Chef” isn’t showing up on the cover of the tabloids for months on end. As stupid and manipulated as this show is, the bottom line is, it’s a much talked about “pop culture” show. Partially because of what I release, partially because of the people on it, and partially because of the attention it draws to itself. I’d be an idiot for not being right in the center of it all feeding the monster. If I have info, I’m gonna give it. Ever since the Jason/Molly/Melissa scandal, this has become the #1 reality show for tabloid fodder. No other one even comes close. From Jason’s season, then on to everything with Jillian and Ed and his girlfriends, on to Jake and Vienna hogging the covers of tabloids for a month straight last season, and now Ali’s. It’s a never ending cycle. The tabloids love this show, and the show knows it. You think they’re just magically having all these different storylines fall to them every season so it gets press coverage? Of course not. That’s why they cast characters. Justin was cast as the “villain” this season. It just so happened that the “villain” ended up having a girlfriend back home which probably meant ratings gold for them last night. They’ve been hyping last night’s episode since last Wednesday. ABC.com had the first 11 minutes of last night on their site since last week, and showed the whole phone call. ABC knows exactly what they’re doing and they LOVE the coverage all the tabloids get them. So just know that this show isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and neither are my spoilers when I get them.
As for “Bachelor Pad”, I will be back tomorrow with all your spoilers on this season. Not nearly as detailed as Ali’s season with the episode by episode breakdown, but I have most of the challenges, who won, who went on dates, who hooked up, etc. And for those that have been unable to grasp how the ending will work, well when they left filming last week, four people were left standing. In September, they’re bringing back the whole cast to tape an episode where they vote on the winner. Probably because they didn’t want the winner getting out 2 months early like it would’ve if they voted last week. Well, I have your final four. And I’m sure after that episode is taped in September, I’ll have your winner. As for Jake’s appearance, I can’t believe how many people thought he was the 20th cast member. Ummmm, this is a show where 250k is at stake. Wouldn’t common sense tell you that bringing a guy onto the show right at end to compete for the money would kinda be unfair to everyone who’s been there since Day 1? No, Jake, Trista and I believe Jillian return to judge one of the challenges which is a dancing competition. That’s his only role. He’s not the 20th cast member, and he’s not competing for the money. Ridiculous.
As for all the Jake and Vienna mess, there really isn’t much to say. It’s he said/she said at this point. Both sides are telling a different story of what happened in their relationship, which is usually the case. Next week, we’re going to see what happened on their sit down interview taped last Wednesday. At that point, I’ll comment on what we see. Until then, it’s pure speculation. However, anyone who actually bought that TMZ story where they said Jake raised his fist and threatened to punch her needs their head examined. Don’t believe everything you read in the tabloids, people. Most of it is fabricated. Do you honestly think a guy would go on national television and threaten to physically harm a woman he just broke up with? That’d be career suicide. Even Jake’s not that stupid. I will comment next week after I see what happened at their sit down interview. Until then, there’s nothing to say. On to last night…
So for all the background stuff on the Justin scandal, it’s all been up under Part 2 of the spoilers since May 11th, and basically what you saw last night was everything I told you that you’d see: Chris comes in to talk to Ali, Chris calls Jessie, Chris hands the phone to Ali, Ali talks to Jessie, she tells him someone’s not there for the right reasons and has a girlfriend, then she hands the phone to Jessica and the rest is history. A few things about this whole scene I found humorous:
-When Chris knocked on the door and walked in the room, Ali said, “I’m scared. Why are you here?” Maybe you should’ve asked the cameraman who were already set up in your room before Chris came over what they were doing there and you could’ve gotten your answer earlier. If you hadn’t already.
-Chris tells Ali, “I’ve just been given some information that’s legit, I checked it out…” If you JUST found out Chris, I’m guessing you wouldn’t have had the time to “make sure its legit” in a matter of minutes. Probably would’ve taken a few hours or days. Pud.
-If Jessie and Jessica were back in Toronto obviously knowing this phone call was taking place, why did it take Jessie 4 ½ rings to pick up the damn phone? Geesh. Wasted time. Obviously I hope you people don’t ask, “How did the camera crew know to be where Jessie and Jessica were?” Please tell me you understand that once it was established this phone call was being made, the proper set up needed to be done.
-Why was the camera crew that was with Jessie and Jessica the same people that filmed the “Blair Witch Project”? Did they film that thing on a cameraphone or something? Damn. What awful sound and picture quality. Nice professionalism.
-Great acting job by Chris when Ali hung up the phone. “Sorry…(cough)(cough)(cough)…” It was almost as if Chris was trying not to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all. I actually chuckled at that whole scene. All of it seemed so amateur, not well thought out, and verrrrrrrry spliced together. I was told Jessica talked to Ali for 20-30 minutes. And we got to see, what, 2-3 minutes? Very choppy and definitely you could tell things were not said in correct sequence it seemed like.
-I’ll admit, the funniest part of the whole episode was watching Justin try and “escape”. I don’t know exactly where he thought he was going or what he was trying to accomplish, but it sure was entertaining watching him limp through bushes and over water fountains. Hell, he almost stopped in for a quick bite to eat at the restaurant but they were closed. Awesome television I tell ya’. Sure I’ve known for months what was gonna happen but it was still hilarious to watch. Hence the reason why it doesn’t matter if you read spoilers or not. Last night was just as entertaining having known what was going to happen, than if you didn’t.
-Justin did acknowledge that Jessica was “someone that’s my best friend, and as weeks went by, my heart became less and less into this”. So yes, at the time when that all went down which was the beginning of April (and as evidenced by the voice mails which I’ll get to in a second), Justin didn’t want to be there anymore and wanted to be back with Jessica. My sources have told me as of today, Justin and Jessica are not a couple. I mean, how could Jessica take him back after finding out about the third girl? That’d be pretty dumb. That was the reason she made the phone call in the first place.
-As for the voice mails, I think that came as a shock to most people. I know it did to me. So before you ask, “How could Justin make the phone calls to Jessica from Iceland if they take away your phones while you’re there”, I’ll let Chris Harrison answer that one. Here’s what he wrote in his blog today on EW.com:
“I’m sure some of you are wondering how Justin could have made a call if we take the guys’ cell phones away. Well Justin would go into the bathroom in the guys’ suite and use the phone by the toilet. He then tried to cover his tracks by calling the front desk and asking them to take the calls and numbers off the room’s bill so we wouldn’t see it. Probably my favorite thing about this entire thing is that “Rated R” thought he was smarter than everybody else and was so smug as he assumed he was getting one over on everybody. When Ali pulled the rug out from under him and confronted him about all his lies, he stammered and stuttered his way through a pathetic series of explanations.”
I guess we know how Chris feels about Justin now. So Justin basically tried to sneak his way around and got caught. The guy has a lot of explaining to do that’s for sure. I actually went on his Facebook Fan Page last night to see what people are saying. I mean, WOW. Look, I understand the guy obviously went on a reality show to promote himself, but seriously, look at some of the things people wrote on his wall and you tell me if these people are sane. It’s a television show people. Calm down.
“Whoa, too bad you didn’t break that other leg running away like the coward you are! You sick f*$@! Just remeber what comes around goes around, and you will get yours!”
“One more thing. I knew from the first night that you were a lieing asshole only out for yourself. You think you are so hot. Trust me, real beauty is on the inside and that part of you is ugly!! I hope you rott in hell!”
” You are a friggin piece of sh*t!! I hope your carrier goes in the toilet because of it. I assure you that it will backfire on you. Karma! It will get you in the end. You are a loser!”
” You are a disgusting creep to do that to that sweet, beautiful woman and your girlfriend too. Couldn’t get press on your own eh? Had to use her to get it? Then when she confronts you…did you man up? NO! You ran. Nothing but a prick and a f**king coward.”
Let me just say this right now. I might not agree with what anything Justin did during his time on the show, but if you actually took the time to write that on his facebook wall, you’re the one that’s the loser. Get a life. Seriously. Who gets that mad over a stupid TV show? And you wonder why I question the sanity of some of the fans of this show. That is unreal to me. Who cares? Why would Justin Rego having a girlfriend make you that upset? You don’t know Justin, you don’t know Jessica, you don’t know Ali. You don’t know any of these people. Mind boggling really. These people shouldn’t be allowed to reproduce.
