Some “Bachelor” news and notes to get to before we start this week’s column. This Saturday night, the “Bachelor” franchise is having their annual drunken hook up reunion. You know how last year it was in NY, and we got to see the footage at the “Women Tell All” of the Gia/Vienna/Wes triangle, guys hitting on Rozlyn, and hookups galore? Well, this year they figured they’d move it to a city more appropriate for this type of debauchery – Las Vegas. It’s gonna be at the Mirage Hotel, red carpet event and all. Yeah, don’t think for a second these people are passing on a chance to get their pictures taken on a fake red carpet either. No chance. It’s called a “reunion,” but essentially it’s a casting audition for “Bachelor Pad 3.” So whoever’s going, if you want on next season bad enough, go to Vegas, get as schnockered as you can, give some hilariously drunk ITM’s, and hook up with somebody. Hell, hook up with numerous people. That’ll pretty much assure your spot on BP3. And just like last year, when Brad’s season was airing and none of the girls from his season were allowed to attend, this year will be no different. I wouldn’t expect any of Ben’s girls to be there. Yet, four of the nine girls on BP2 were from Brad’s season (Michelle, Melissa, Alli, and Jackie). I would also expect Ben’s girls will have the most representation on “Bachelor Pad 3″ than any other season for the girls.
Jenna Burke had her exit interview with the media on Thursday, and it went awful. Not awful as in she melted down again and started crying, but awful in that she was normal, owned up to her breaking down on the show, and didn’t say anything remotely stupid. Sorry Jenna, you were much more entertaining when you were bat sh** crazy. This new and improved Jenna who’s down-to-earth, concentrating on herself, and ready to take on the world just doesn’t do it for me. Go get blasted again and start stammering and crying over nothing. Much more fun.
And in just as important news for this Saturday night, yours truly will be making an appearance here in Dallas at the Reuse Jeans store across the street from NorthPark Mall on the other side of 75. If you remember, we ran their ad with a discount a couple times on this site last season because the owner, George Powell, is a longtime family friend and he’s having a Grand Opening this Saturday night. It’s the Reuse Jeans store in the Shops at Park Lane this Saturday night between 6-9pm. Randy Travis will be there, myself, and some others. You can call me a shill, you can call it sucking up to my family friend, but I’m telling you, these are the most comfortable pair of jeans I currently own. I’m very happy for his success and glad he’s finally opened a store here in Dallas. Ohhhh, the stories I could tell about George. Like the time I lost my front tooth in backyard when I was three. Or the only time in my life I’ve ever baby sat, I did for his two daughters and I fell asleep. Looking forward to Saturday night, so come on out if you’re in the area.
An excellent column about how fake reality TV is that I read a couple days ago. Nothing that I haven’t already tried to drill in your head before, but I think it does a good job of showing the extent of how contrived and manipulated it is. Check it out right here.
Had another appearance last night on WFAA-Channel 8 here in Dallas to talk about last night’s show. Here it is:
Boy, how excited was I that we had a sit down interview this week? I was giddy. In the waiting room, I was nearly practicing how I was gonna stand, then during commercial break they bring me out and tell me we’re gonna sit down. I couldn’t have been more relieved. The Boy Scouts in the background must be huge fans of mine. Thanks for coming out kids. I appreciate all your support. Or not.
