The First Two Bachelorettes Confirmed for Ben’s Season – 9/20/11

September 20th, 2011 | 6 Comments | Posted in Bachelor Ben Spoilers, The Bachelor 16 - Ben

There is a link at the top of the page entitled “Bachelor Ben’s Girls” that will keep a running list every time I add new girls. Today’s girls have been added.

The Bachelor Ben Flajnik, the frat boy player who will milk 11 weeks in January through March to promote his wine business, all while dating 25 women from across the country in hopes to finding one that he will eventually never walk down the aisle with, begins his journey tonight. Yep, the season hasn’t even started and I can pretty much tell you that’s how it’s going to end up. You know what’s funny? Of course you’re all aware of the Jennifer Love Hewitt tweets that I make fun of incessantly. Well, if you’ve ever read her tweets, you’d know that every one of them is loaded with positivity and love and a bunch of happy faces and exclamation points. Well, does anyone find it ironic that on the day Ben begins filming, JLH tweets today, “Good old fashioned case of the blues today.” Gee, I wonder why? Once again, for those that think her “date” with Ben just happened to be a random coincidence that they ended up in the same bar together nowhere near where she lives 5 days after she freaked out he started following her on Twitter and made a comment about making a trip to Sonoma, then I guess you’re not the brightest bulb in the bunch. It wasn’t coincidental. And they didn’t just shake hands, say hi at a bar, and go their merry way either. But whatever. On to bigger and better things.

Over the course of the next two months, I will be giving you as much info as I can regarding the bachelorettes who are on the show, plus any sort of production notes and spoilers that I can. Since the show has begun to embrace social media, and Chris Harrison now tweets during filming without giving too much away, lets just say that the locations of where they are shouldn’t be too hard to figure out if I haven’t found out beforehand. Right now, I have the names of 9 women currently on the show. Only have pictures of 5 of them so far, so, I’m patiently waiting for more stuff to come in. I’ll be releasing them however I feel like doing it. I’ll never know when and how many I’ll be posting, but if you follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or my Facebook Fan Page, you will always be updated when I did. So since the Meet and Greet begins tonight, I figured I’d give you two of the girls to start with that are confirmed for the season. Here they are:

1. Elyse Myers: 24, personal trainer/fitness instructor, Tampa, Fla. Originally from Illinois, graduated from Eastern Illinois University w/ a degree in exercise physiology.

2. Erika Uhlig: 22, Chicago, current Miss Chicago 2011, went to University of Pitt. All her info currently on her Miss Chicago site (http://www.misschicago.org/erika.html), and she also has a Twitter account that she didn’t shut down before she left.

Also, tons of pictures if you wanna google her. We’ll go with the pageant one for now:

______________________________________________________

So everyone, you may begin your “Ewww, she’s ugly” or “I don’t see Ben with her” comments immediately, even though you don’t know a thing about them and you’re basing your opinion off one picture. But I guess that’s what completely irrational people do, so have at it. I wonder if JLH’s blood is boiling right now as she starts frantically googling these women to see if they compare to her. Welcome to the family ladies. All former female contestants from previous “Bachelor” seasons will be judging you now, and just wait til you get back home and your Facebook page friend requests have gone up by a few hundred, and half of them are former contestants of the “Bachelorette” looking to see who wins the race for quickest into your pants. Hope you’re ready. I find it pretty interesting that both of these girls didn’t shut off their Twitter accounts before they left. Granted, neither are big Twitter users as you can tell by their lack of tweets, but it’s funny that each of them put in their last tweet that it’d be a while before they tweeted again, which also confirms they’re doing the show. I’m sure ABC will shut those down immediately since I just posted them, but hey, just wanted to get it out there so you can follow them once they get back.

“Reality Roundup” with my thoughts on “Survivor”, “Dancing with the Stars”, and “X Factor”, along with some “Reader Emails” will be back on Thursday. Also, your “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” recap is now up. You can view by clicking the link on the top of the page.

  1. I personally think both of these girls are beautiful, and I can totally see Ben with either one of them. Elyse’s twitter says she is on for one more week, and Erika has posted that she’s off twitter for a while. Can’t wait to see the rest of the girls! Thanks Steve

  2. Hopefully the JLH connection isn’t really serious and that he give these (and the rest) of the girls an honest chance.

  3. I wasn’t a fan of Ben’s during most of Ashley’s season but I liked how he reacted to her rejection of his proposal. I like how he was realistic and told her not to sugarcoat it. He does seem quirky and boring to me, but I agree with Steve in that the entertainment comes from the contestants, not the lead. I don’t find Ben attractive but I’ll definitely still be watching, mainly thanks to RS.

    Oh, and I can’t wait to read RS’s recap of DWTS. I watched it last night and when Kristin and Mark came on, to me it was clear that there’s already something going on there. She was saying “We’ve been having tons of fun together..” I’ll BET you have!

  4. Prediction: Ben ditches F1 for JLH. JLH ditches Ben a year later. Then Ben goes on BP and keeps it in the family.

  5. Yay, I finally got logged into here, so I can post. I have loved reading your blog since Jason’s season. I get so bored with the show itself as it’s SO predictable, but it’s nice to be able to read your preview and laugh about the show the next day when you post your blog. I know lots of people who actually think this show is real. I have lots of questions for you. BTW I grew up missing out on BH90210 because I didn’t get FOX, so I was in college before I even got to watch an episode, and loved it along with Melrose Place and Party of Five. So now I am catching up on the entire show, just this close to finishing 2nd season. I forgot how hot Luke Perry is,
    1. What makes him such a “bad boy”? I don’t see it in the show, at least not yet…..
    2. What did you think of Jake on H8TR? That stupid show on CW before ANTM? That was pitiful, but guess the young chicky is like everyone else who sees right through his fake personality. Guess Jake just wanted to make some quick $ and flaunt his muscles cuz he has nothing else going for him.
    3. Any thoughts about why they are not finding new blood for the bachelor or even the bachelorette? I mean why do they keep picking left overs for the star? I was not impressed with Ben at all. He is so boring and ugly.
    4. Who is your favorite bachelor and bachelorette star? I am sure you have been asked this before, but I cannot recall ever reading it on here.
    5. Why do you think Trista/Ryan made it down the aisle, but no one seems to come even close? She was the first Bachelorette, was the show more realistic back then?
    6. Do you see yourself ever getting married? How long would you date someone before asking them?
    BTW, I wanna see more video of your dog, Mattie. Very cute.
    Melissa
