For episode-by-episode spoilers of Brad’s season, click on the link above that says “Bachelor Brad Spoilers” (it’s like, 1″ inch above this sentence. Twice). It has a breakdown of every date, rose, and elimination, all the way down to Brad’s final choice. However, there will be spoilers in this column about Monday’s episode. You’ve been warned.
Since I wasn’t going to sit on this an extra day, I figured I’d do the video blog today with your “Bachelorette” announcement, and also include a few “Reader Emails”. Tomorrow I’ll come back with reaction to the “Bachelorette” announcement and more emails as well. You might wanna prepare yourself for this video because: A) There’s music in it and B) I dance. This could be the greatest thing you’ve ever seen, or, it could good give you side splitting laughter to start out your day. I couldn’t help it. Every time I hear this song, I gotta dance. One of my all time favorites. Ellen would be proud. So enjoy the video, and maybe if enough people come back begging for more, I’ll dance again in future videos. Maybe I can start a craze or something. Here you go:
So yeah, I wouldn’t say it’s all that surprising to hear who it is. When will it officially be announced? I don’t know. I’m guessing they’ll introduce her at the “After the Final Rose” show since taping begins in less than three weeks. She’ll be in LA this weekend for the “Women Tell All” I’ve got no problem with the choice, I really don’t. Although, I still am really curious as to why it’s not Emily, since they pegged her from Day 1. I honestly don’t know why it isn’t. Maybe she’ll come out and say why on the “After the Final Rose” show, or maybe not. But they wanted her and she initially wanted to do it, so I have no idea what happened. We may never know, but I can already tell there will be a lot of disappointed Emily fans that’s for sure. Oh well. I’m guessing Emily doesn’t need this show to find a boyfriend.
We’re gonna start the “Reader Emails” today, then finish up with some more tomorrow considering this is easily the biggest batch I’ve gotten to date. Don’t know why, but my email inbox on Tuesday would not stop filling up. People seemed to have a question every five minutes. So I saved the ones I thought were worthy enough to get re-posted. And yes, of course you will be seeing some of the brain deads back in full force today. Although, one of the more popular themes of the emails you’ll see today and tomorrow is people telling me how EASY it is to navigate the site. Lets get started:
So…are the roses they hand out real, or just really good fake silk ones? And do they prompt the girls to do that really cheesy “mmmmmmm this rose smells so good” face?
Comment: No, they’re real. As they should be. I mean with a budget that this show has, if they couldn’t even bring themselves to give the women real roses, that’d be pretty pathetic. Then again, with all the traveling these women do, I can’t imagine these roses stay fresh. They must just chuck em’ once they’ve moved on to another city. What’s the point in keeping them unless you’re the final one? Seems kinda pointless.
Do you really believe it when a contestant says they don’t watch the show? Such as in Michelle’s interview from WetPaint.com? I just find this hard to believe.
Comment: Not really. Just like when Wes said the same thing to me back when we did our interview, I knew he didn’t sit there every Monday and dissect all two hours. But he obviously had seen the parts he needed to see about himself to comment on. Same with Michelle. She talks about how she couldn’t watch any of it, yet she’s telling us how she was edited, who she thinks Brad connected with, and knows a lot of important details to have never seen the show. Sure, your friends can fill you in on how you were edited, but this is Michelle Money people. She’s an actress. You don’t think she’s watching herself on TV, especially when friends are probably telling her how the show is portraying her? Please.
I doubt you need the consolation, but here goes.
Your spoilers are not hard to find, and your blog is not hard to navigate. I really hope I’m not the only one who thinks that.
(When I told this guy “Thanks. I know there’s at least one competent person on this planet”)
I worked as a server/bartender for 8 years, and here’s my theory:
When people are dumb their very first inclination is to blame someone else. I can’t say how many times I brought their food to them and their first response is: “I didn’t order that.” (they did) or “This doesn’t come with that.” (it does) or “This shouldn’t have cheese on it. You may say the menu said it does, but you’re obviously wrong. There’s no way I could have made that mistake.”
I actually envy you. You get to make fun of people for being stupid/ignorant and then being stupid/ignorant enough to try to blame you. There were so many times I wish I could have responded by mocking them, but I wanted their tips. Sucks to be me (fortunately I finally found a real job.)
Comment: Awesome. Might’ve been my most favorite email I’ve received. Could not have said it better myself. I like how I’m the one people blame when my site couldn’t be more easy to navigate. Three posts per page, you’ve got all the archived columns down the right hand side, you’ve got a Calendar that shows each date that I’ve posted something, I talk about where the spoilers are in a BOLD paragraph in the beginning of every single post I’ve written for the last two months. What else do people need? Would they like me to do a video blog of “Reality Steve 101” and explain to them how to navigate my site?
By the way, I’m a huge restaurant guy. And there is nothing worse than people at restaurants who are constantly whining and bitching about service. If your service sucks, tell the manager. No need to embarrass a server or cause a scene just because they put the wrong topping on your baked potato. I’ve never been a server in my life for the sole reason that anyone who gave me lip for a screw up that I made would probably get food dropped in their lap. Purposely. Serving has to be one of the more thankless jobs in America. I feel for those people sometimes.
