Dr. Reality Steve

“Reader Emails,” “Dr. Reality Steve,” Courtney Auto-Tune, Blakeley Giving a Lap Dance, and I Get a Little Nostalgic

Welcome back. A rather large “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” blog today, so, I hope you have a good 20-30 minutes today to set aside and read all of it. The funny thing is, with the live video blog again tonight at 9pm EST/6pm PST, now I’m doubling the chance of getting repeat questions asked. So not only are repeat questions getting asked to me on email, but I guarantee that something I answered in today’s “Reader Emails” will also get asked at some point tonight. Mark it down. And probably more than one. Especially the “I heard a rumor Ben isn’t with Courtney anymore. Is that true?” That seems to be the favorite question among readers right now, which is why it is the FIRST question I address in “Reader Emails” today. Didn’t want it buried on page 4. First question and I answer it about as succinctly as I can. Aaaaaaannnd, I’m sure it’ll get asked 10 more times before the season is over.

We have added a new writer to the site that is covering the “Real Housewives of Orange County” and her name is Michelle Teevee (pen name). Her column from Tuesday’s premiere episode is up now on the site so check it out and let her know what you think. I honestly have never seen five minutes of any of the “Real Housewives” shows, so I don’t have much information about how it all works, but geez, is there one on every night? Do these seasons all overlap at some point? That franchise is so confusing. So many women, so many different cities, and it seems like there’s always a franchise on. I guess that’s the TV world we live in nowadays. People want to see a bunch of rich, stuck up, plastic snobs flaunting their money and douchebag husbands on TV. Thanks. I’ll pass.

Someone made a pretty hilarious video of Courtney that popped up online yesterday. If you haven’t seen it, here it is. Great use of auto-tune.

Hey Blakeley’s in the news everyone! And no, not because she got eliminated this week, but because she decided to shove her t**s in her female friends face while giving her a lap dance. TMZ.com obtained this video and posted it this morning. Lovely.

    I ? you so much, Steve, but I must point out that you can’t do math. If you were right 3 times & wrong 2 times, that is not the same as being wrong 2% of the time. It’s actually that you were wrong about the ending 40% of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I WANT you to be right because I think it would be funny for the dumbest & least attractive bachelor in Bachelor history to choose the biggest witch in Bachelor history. Just had to point that out. ? you, though!

    Great as usual Steve-o. Finally figured this season out. From having a horndog in the lead and insane, completely hammered contestants, it’s a parody of ALL past bachelor shows. Stormhorse makes Guiney almost look like he wasn’t on to just get a piece of az. Why not just make a complete joke of it, because that’s whay it is anyway. Fleiss and company went for the comedic soft porn, it’s hilarious, who could ever take a dweeb like Flapjack seriously anyway, heck just look at him. lmao. 90% of girls under 35 would walk right past him in a club and never look twice. He’s so subpar in looks and personality, but I wish they would have used a chimp, they are more loveable than Stormhorse with his huge ego. Keep up the good work. Glad to her Stormhorse and the Biotch are still together, they are a perfect fit actually.

    @ liz123 : Steve puts in DETAILED spoilers for every episode and every elimination.

    Saying he was right 3 times and wrong 2 times is only if you are talking about the final one and ignoring every single thing he got right up until that point.

    Putting it another way, out of 25 to 30 contestants, he predicts the final 2 correctly every time. If you were going by chance, you’d only get it right 1 out of 25 or 30 times.

    And that’s not even counting the specifics of every date, where they went, what they did, and so on and so on.

    Besides that, not a single final couple has stayed together on either show except the first Bachelorette, and they are frequently broken up before the show has finished airing; sometimes even before it STARTS airing.

    So really it’s not so much about who the lead picks, it’s really just about the last person to be eliminated. Cuz they ALL get eliminated.

    To clarify, the odds of picking the F1 correctly by chance are 1 in 25, but the odds of picking the last 2 correctly are much lower than that.

    Steve, you are giving your next-to-last e-mailer way too much credit. It doesn’t take someone with a Ph.d in Psychology or an MBA to figure out what most of these people are on the show for (read: self-promotion, brand promotion etc). Which is why I wonder what Emily O. is doing on the show, since she actually HAS a Ph.D (Well, almost).

    So….thanks a lot Reality Steve, not only have I wasted waaaaaay too much time watching the bachelor, reading your blog, following bachelor people on twitter, and watching your video blog….NOW I will probably lose precious minutes of my life watching a stupid Vanilla Ice movie that I never even heard of before today….thanks. 😉

    BTW, I’m digging the fact that you rip Neil Lane for sponsoring the show and all their cheesy plugs, and then today you are letting an ad for Fred Meyer run on your site. And by ‘digging’, I mean ‘laughing and rolling my eyes simulatenously’.

    I just want to say something to the reader who emailed about whether or not inability to get along with the MIL would be a deal breaker. My husband is amazing, we’ve been married almost 8 years and he never ceases to make me laugh, smile, and feel loved. But his mom drives me crazy, and when our kids came (we have 3) and she thought it was her place to tell me what to do with them (probably trying to fix her own mistakes she made with her kids on mine) I finally told her one day right to her face I was never going to do something she had told me at least 15 times to do with my child. I would not trade my husband for someone whose mom I liked better because I am still crazy in love with him and we’re perfect for each other, but I do not feel comfortable at my in laws house. So from someone living it, it’s possible to live with and at least in my case, my hubs is definitely worth it.

    Wrong. Not if you’re picking from the get-go….essentially 2 out of 25.

    You say you’ve had the final “winner” right 3 times and gotten it wrong twice. You later go on to say you’ve been wrong 2% of the time. Sorry, perhaps math wasn’t your strong suit, but that would make you wrong 40% of the time, not 2%. Little different, just saying.

    @realitybiteth- Thank you for going into such detail. I could never have figured any of that out on my own ::rolls eyes::. But in all seriousness, I do get what you’re saying. There are many things to “spoil” besides the final chosen one. Including all the other spoilers increases the denominator significantly, thus greatly increasing the percentage of accuracy. However, if you re-read how RS worded the post, it most definitely was worded in a way that made it sound as though he believed that spoiling 3 out of 5 seasons’ ENDINGS equals being wrong only 2% of the time. I’m quite sure that it was just poor wording & he’s not an idiot. My post was in jest & meant as a little friendly ribbing, but thank you for setting me straight. RS should have you walk around with him watching his back all the time b/c I bet you’d be like a lil mama bear. Rawr! Again, I love RS. I have read every word of every post for about 2 years. I don’t need anyone to convince me how right he (almost always) is.

    when we are talking about getting it right it we are just saying the F1 out of the final 2. I know he gives us other details up to that point but that stuff is not hard. We have people leaving one by one so it’s easy to sleuth that and find out the order that they leave. Also the producers don’t make as big of effort to keep that a secret. However with the final 2 it’s kept under wraps and then everyone goes home same time. Anyway I don’t see how RS can be 100% sure Courtney is the F1 if he has been wrong before.

    Love Caitlyn and Rschelk’s comments above, and I completely agree with them ( although I don’t think I will watch the Ice movie…).
    Also agree with Wastingtimeonline’s comments (great username, by the way! 😉 ) about the Reality Steve e-mail regarding the mother-in-law. I have a lot of friends whose MIL’s drive them crazy, but it works out anyway. They don’t have to live with the MIL , and in reality, you only spend a minimal time with them each year. Over time, she may eventually accept her and they can become civil or even close. I’ve seen it happen more than once, so it should not be a deal breaker at all.

    Ok,I can’t believe I went through the trouble of registering just to leave a comment, but I did, so here it goes….

    1. I LOVED that you were wrong on Brad’s season. I watched the entire season “knowing” it was Chantel and I loved being in shock when it was actually Emily!

    2. You need to cut people some slack on not hanging onto every word you say when they askthe same questions over and over Not only are some of your posts a little long-winded, not everyone reads every single post you’ve ever written.

    Nonetheless, I appreciate the funny recaps and answers to behind-the-scenes questions.

    To the person who brought up “cognitive dissonance” as the reason Ben chooses Courtney– I thought the same thing. Ben’s skinnydipping with Courtney becomes easier for the other women to understand/forgive if he ends up with Courtney and she was “the one” all along. (Otherwise, he looks like a major heel.) If he picks Courtney, he looks like a good guy overwhelmed by finding the love of his life. I, for one, can’t wait to watch him turn on the puppydog charm and play this out on ATFR. (Then, if they split up later, he will look like a poor innocent victim of love.)
    Think about it: Courtney couldn’t be more different than Ashley (the “love of his life” from last year)…
