Do you know if those two idiots, Vienna sausage and Krazy Kasey are still together after doing the Bachelor Pad? Either those two have absolutely no respect for each other or the editing on the show is incredible. Never was a fan of either, but even moreso now. They’re both annoying as crap.
Comment: Yes, they are still together. They bought a place recently in LA. Have you not seen them ONCE at all these premiere parties, or tweeting, or anything? Geez. I can’t go a couple days without getting some sort of update on them on the internet. How have you not seen this?
Good Morning Steve – can you please tell me if Blake and Molly are seeing one another – now that the show is over. My daughter and her girlfriends are dying to know. The smiles they shared and the chemistry surrounding them was so beautiful.
Comment: This email came before I posted the finale spoilers. However, has this person read ANY of my “Bachelor Pad” columns this season. I’ve been saying since Week 1 these two have been dating since the show ended. And now they’re engaged. So yes, Blake and Molly are still together. It was rough at first, since Molly was with Jason. But she pulled a “Jason”, had a change of heart, and now is with Blake. What a great couple. Really? Blake and Molly? People never cease to amaze me.
Hi, Reality Steve,
A couple of Bachelor thoughts:
Couldn’t agree with you more about Blake. He definitely has a snakey
quality to him. Obviously, Michael doesn’t like him, but Michelle also has
strong negative feelings about him and so do others on the show.
I know there is editing and that at home, we don’t see the whole story, but sometimes,
you can’t hide “bad seed,” and that seems to be what Blake is. Blake and Holly
may be going strong right now, but I’ll be shocked if they’re still together in a few
months. Of course, I guess we could say that about most couples born from this franchise.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen this issue discussed in your column, but do you know
if ABC has ever thrown around the idea of having the Bachelor shows on more than
three times a year? (meaning, #1 Bachelor in Jan., #2 Bachelorette in the summer, and
#3 Bachelor Pad at summer’s end?) For instance, Ben’s season is ready to start
filming. What if Ryan was also cast as Bachelor, with filming simultaneous to Ben’s.
Obviously, they would need to double-up on crew, expenses, editing, etc. Then, right
after Ben’s season finishes airing in March, they could immediately air Ryan’s season,
and by then, it would be time for the May Bachelorette season to start.
Of course, there are programming issues with other ABC shows, increased production costs, and more work, but the bottom line is…….since this franchise is so successful ratings-wise, why not figure out a way to have it run almost year-round? You could still recycle old contestants to be the bachelor/ette, because, as evidenced by Bachelor Pad, we obviously haven’t forgotten or lost our interest in contestants of years gone by.
I guess there is the issue of over-exposure. Maybe part of the reason this franchise
is so successful is because we have to wait a few months in between each show, so
when a new season airs, we’re ready to pounce.
OK, I’ve taken up enough of your time. Thanks again for all of your writings.
You don’t know how many laughs you’ve inspired and how much more fun
you’ve made watching this show.
Comment: It would be overkill if it was more than 3 times a year, without a doubt. One of each season, plus, “Bachelor Pad” is enough. They’d never run seasons back-to-back without some sort of break. “Bachelor” goes Jan thru March, two month break, then “Bachelorette” begins, and immediately into “Bachelor Pad.” The only other time they could run another season would be in September thru November, but that’s DWTS season on ABC and it’s impossible to pull off. That’s why it comes back in Jan for two months, then during their two month break before “Bachelorette”, DWTS runs its spring season. You can’t have both of those shows on at the same time because they’re both 2 hours.
Do you know what is up (if anything) between David Goode and Natalie or Jesse?
I saw a clip of Goode on Youtube and he was doing his recaps and “predictions”, and it sounded like he read your entire spoiler section first.
Also, about what Kasey said when he called out Vienna about David and Wes? Any new details you can share?
Has David run through a list of of the franchise women?
Comment: Nothing is going on between Dave and either of those girls now. In the past? Yes. Now? No.
Of course he knows about the spoilers. All of them do. They’re just not allowed to ever utter my name in a tweet or in an interview, etc.
Dave admitted on Twitter that the Vienna story was true. I’m glad he admitted it because he would’ve been a liar if he denied it. Not sure what Wes said.
Yes, to say that Dave has had his fair share of former contestants would be an understatement. He’s probably in the lead if I had to guess.
I’ve found it interesting that not all the recycled leads seemed likable on their first go-around: like the show making clear that some of the other girls found DeAnna to be a snotty b**** when she was on Brad’s 1st season and that most if not all of the guys on Jillian’s season thought Jake was a cliche-spouting robot. Of course, a sympathetic edit doesn’t tell the whole story either. I seem to remember one of Ashley’s fellow contestants (maybe Shawntel) saying that she annoyed a lot of them with all the insecurity stuff.
Do you know if any former contestants who had to live in the mansion with future leads like Ali, Jason, etc (and I guess Ben is part of the list now) had anything interesting to say about them that ABC chose not to share with us?
Comment: I’m sure every lead has had people from their seasons that didn’t like them, and others that did. From what I can gather, Ben was well liked in the house. As was Bentley. The guys really didn’t have a clue about the Bentley stuff until it started airing, which happens a lot. Once you get home, producers give you a heads up of what to expect from your edit, but until it actually airs, you never know. And yes, certain people have been told, “Hey, sorry. We had to edit you like this. It was really good TV.” So that should tell you all you need to know.
