Where the Final Rose Ceremony is Being Filmed, & Two More Confirmed Contestants – 10/13/11

Well, here it is. Our new look. The navigation should be much easier as everything you need is across the top bar. Archived shows, spoilers, TV shows – just scroll your mouse over and you’ll see a drop down list come up. From there, it’s as easy as pie. If you can’t navigate this, you haven’t exited 4th grade.

So why do I have a picture of a mountain right here? Well, that’s not just any mountain. That is the Matterhorn, located in Switzerland. The reason behind that mountain? It’s where the “Bachelor” is headed for the overnight dates and final rose ceremony. The overnight dates this season will take place in Switzerland with the final rose ceremony being filmed at the Matterhorn. As far as scenic proposals, in 22 seasons, this is probably the best they’ve ever come up with. However, there is one downside I’m seeing. Ummmm, Switzerland in November? I googled “Average Temperature in Switzerland in November” and the average high is 46 degrees with a low of 35. It also said November is the wettest month. Yes, it might be one hell of a view, but putting two women out there in final rose ceremony dresses at the base of the Matterhorn, well, let’s just say it might get a bit nipply out there. Yes, I said nipply. As in they’ll probably be able to cut glass with theirs. I can’t remember the last time they didn’t go to a warm weather climate for the final rose ceremony, can you?

I mean, what if they get to Switzerland and it’s just miserable. Cold, windy, rainy, etc. Why even take a chance? I know they’re looking for unbelievable scenery for their final proposal, but, I can’t imagine they’re gonna have these two women standing outside with their teeth chattering as Ben is trying to get down on one knee all while hypothermia is settling in. Like I said when I told you a couple weeks ago about this final destination – it’s gonna be quite interesting.

  1. I could not agree more about the Eliza/Jeff ratio. My hope is that if the returning Survivors trend continues, that we’ll see Eliza & Parvati together again one of these upcoming seasons. Also, as far as the challenge goes, far worse than the visual was the audio. The noises those people were making & the ripping sounds of the meat were possibly the most disgusting sounds I’ve ever heard. Thank God for mute.

  2. Hey Steve, Just wanted to say my FAVORITE thing about the new site? That stupid pop-up window thing “awarding” me a free apple iPad and making me click 3 times to get rid of it is gone. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

  3. @monkeylove: I HAVE to agree! I’m SOOOOO glad that Free iPad pop-up window is GONE!!! Definitely my favorite thing, too. I love the look and ease of this new site. Great job, Steve!

  4. I have to agree with the above posters…so glad that pop-up is gone…and this new look is great…keep up the good work Steve!!!!!

  5. Love the new redesign, Steve! And I’m also in agreement with everyone else that it’s awesome that the pop-up is gone. I hope now you’ll have far less morons emailing you whining that they can’t find anything on your site.

  6. Well I must say that thus far, these women for Ben are faaar too lovely for him! If I looked like any of them, I set my sights on a much more attractive man! But then after the show ends, they’ll be flooded with all types of men!

    As for Survivor, I was actually in gag mode looking at them rip that pig apart…and they took the meat back to camp, cooked it and ate it! That was even more disgusting and over the top! Sickening! PLEASE never repeat that Jeff!

  7. On DWTS, I was completely awed by Derek Hough’s choreography to the Psycho film theme. And also impressed by Ricki Lake’s abilities. It’s become obvious to me that Derek excels at both teaching and choreography. Not that Ricki doesn’t have some dance potential, because she does — but I was waiting to see how Derek would do when not given a partner who was basically a lock to win from the beginning (as he was the last two times around). And he has done wonderfully well so far.

    So yes, I agree with Steve that people vote for the professional dancers probably as much as or more than they vote for the stars on DWTS. I also like Tony Davolani a lot, and always wish he would get a partner who had a chance (he’s had a couple of those, but not many through the years). I was impressed with Chynna, and wish that she had not frozen and forgotten her routine… bad luck for Tony again!

  8. Interesting..fake snow and skiing in San Fran, then real snow and skiing in Switzerland. Maybe Ben has a thing for snow, lol!

  9. Maybe the final rose ceremony will actually take place INSIDE a building in front of a huge plate glass window with a view of the Matterhorn outside. Otherwise … I do agree – a winter coat would spoil the fun.

  10. OK, would love to know filming locations and times in Nov. I am an American living in Switzerland and would love to run into the cast during filming. Any chance to get more specifics?

  11. Hi there…Love reading your blogs, reality steve……and getting spoiled on all the shows… But I agree with swissmrs… I’m also an American living in Switzerland and would love to know specifics. Have anything else to share?
