Reality Steve Live Video Blog – Thursday, February 9th 9:00PM EST/6:00PST

February 9th, 2012 | 23 Comments | Posted in Interviews, The Bachelor 16 - Ben

Here’s tonight’s video blog in case you missed it. No costume since I couldn’t find any head dresses or beads to wear, Maddie gets two treats during the show, and I go through two bottles of water. Scroll underneath each “marker” in the timeline to advance immediately to which question you want to hear the answer to. Much easier than listening to all 70 minutes I would assume. However, if you do listen to all 70 minutes, you are a real trooper and I appreciate it. Vokle.com uses a flash players, so if you’re trying to view this on your Ipad or Iphone, I’m sorry, but it will not be viewable. Hope you all enjoyed the show. See you back here next week.

  1. Yeahhhhhh!! Maddie gets the treat she didn’t get last week! You rock, Steve!! I’m sure she was a very happy girl!

  2. Steve, I look forward to everything on your site! I too am hoping you get to meet Emily after the show is over – she is my favorite too, by far. Here is just a pet peeve of mine – you used the term “trooper” when it should be “trouper.” It’s so misused (especially on Facebook!) that I think everyone thinks trooper is correct now. “Trooper” only refers to a person who is a police officer/military person. “Trouper” from the French “troupe” is the correct term to use when you are talking about someone who puts up with something without complaint. :-)

  3. cokemeyer, here’s the definition of “trooper”:

    trooper Anyone who exhibits EXTREME perseverence, fortitude, and tenacity.

    So, either “trooper” or “trouper” is correct,

  4. I enjoy the video blogs and will continue watching each week. However, in this blog was it really necessary to allow the question screener to bypass many legitimate questions from viewers in favor of “do you think the screener is cute”? Really? What nonsense.

  5. I’d like to see where you got that definition because it isn’t in the mainstream dictionaries. You can be LIKE a trooper, but if you are using the phrase “you’re a real trouper” then the “u” spelling is the only one that is correct, unless you are talking about an actual officer.

  6. Oh I know, that Casey cry made me bust a gut!! Also skinny dipping enthusiast made me laugh too. I also said Jenna before Steve did re dying surrounded by cats. I was waiting for him to crack about Monica liking pus**. Can’t believe he didn’t go there! Great vlog. I really enjoy them. But Steve has to get stricter with cutting them off earlier. I know, its probably hard to do.

  7. Dude – I really want to listen to what you have to say, because I have this guilty pleasure of laughing at The Bachelor episodes. However, it is impossible due to the fact that you have to FILL THAT WINE RACK of yours! Are you single or what? And, by they way, it is worse if you are single. Get some wine!

  8. a) How do you not know Bunny Lebowski?? You need to go watch the Big Lebowski right now.

    b) Maddie ate her treat right there because you had the door to your room closed. She barked at you to open it not long after that! xoxo

  9. Dearest Steve, is there any way you could upload your video blogs to YouTube? I only have an iPhone and an iPad. Thank you for your consideration in advance! :)

  10. Hey Steve, did you see the little blip on Sunday Morning (on CBS) about the Bachelor and finding love? They were talking about how no one has really stayed together over the 10 years. They just go on there to get on other shows or for fame. Thought it was funny. I have a question since you are a BH 90210 fan. Did Tori have her lips done, or some BOTOX or cosm surgery on her face? She looks different in the last year or so. Just curious. Love your blog. Enjoy reading it rather than watching the stupid show. Chris Harrison is a douche, and so over the top. Keep up your blog!

  11. @cokemeyer Your first comment made me giggle. USAGE examples of both “trooper” and “trouper” are in most dictionaries, but dictionaries only exist to show words in wide-spread use; they don’t and aren’t required to address whether the usage is proper. (The OED states this, specifically, for example.) Meanwhile, Diane’s definition actually originates from the Urban Dictionary.

    The use of “trooper” here is incorrect (this is true), unless Steve’s audience are uniformed soldiers or boy/girl scouts. He should have used “troupers,” just like the other squillion people who are accidentally using the wrong word.

    But at least, we knew what he meant. Some of the other common misused words out there are just confusing.

  12. Steve,
    I have so enjoyed your blog for several seasons now. However, I must say your post a few days ago tellling us all who loathe Courtney to get a life really put me off. Should I find it ironic that you bash us for hating Courtney and yet you MAKE A LIVING bashing the entire show? Please Steve don’t believe that you are going to keep us long time followers around by putting us down. Very uncool. AND… yep, I hate Courtney.

  13. Love the vlog. Love you. I completely believe you that Ben and Courtney are together and still engaged since he’s obviously thinking with Little Ben. You’ve said how he’s going to defend her and the skinny dipping, but I have to ask… do you really think he can justify her bipolar behavior after tonight’s episode? The way she manipulated him about “losing the spark”, how she told the girls she was ready to go home and Ben wasn’t the only guy in the world, and her extremely rude behavior when Emily didn’t get the rose? Tell us… how is he going to pull off this defense?

  14. Hi steve, I loved your blog. I wish you would screen the questions. I noticed most of them were kinda pointless. QUestions about jenna.. i wish you would look at the questions!

  15. @carol That works, too, in this context. But, to be clear, I used “common” as a predicative adjective and “misused” as an attributive adjective (i.e., these misused words are common words, as opposed to unusual words), which is grammatically correct.

    The comma splice I committed after “least,” on the other hand, is not grammatically correct. :-)

  16. Love the way you recap Steve!! You are so right on with everything!! Thanks! P . S. Loved the “Frank the tank” reference.

  17. I never post comments except on ballet performances on youtube ( I am a ballerina). I hate Courtney so much that had to come here and vent it. I almost want to quit watching the show because it’s constant negativity, really. I don’t think anyone in the history of Bachelor was as horrible as that woman. Vienna was an angel in comparison to this person. Yeah, Ben does think with his penis. Obviously, he is not looking for a potential partner. No matter what red flags are, he just chooses to ignore. Two women tell him that Courtney is not a good person behind his back, he pulls her aside and she puts her skirt as high as possible to bare her legs. He glance quickly at her legs couple of times and voila, he sends 2 nice girls home. I mean, really. Ben is just shallow idiot, who just for the sake of a f..k, gonna close his eyes at any red flags. Ben and Courtney deserve each other. Thanks, Steve, for telling that they end up together. I believe u now watching how horny Ben is for her. I dont need to watch this show anymore because of their relationship. Yeah… good luck to both of you. You need it with your stupidity, shallowness and negative personalities.

  18. I I have nevI I have never seen a more nasty and vicious woman as Courtney !!! If Ben really chooses here, and according to this column, he does, then he deserves to be unhappy!!! I think all her crap is rigged and the producers are just telling her what catty remarks to make. That’s why this show is getting so boring cause we all know how staged it is. Why waste the audience’s time and abc money , when no love connections ever come from this show.!!! And Emily Maynard being the next Bachelorette!!! What a joke!! She is not going to marry anyone and lose her monetary support from Rick Hendrix for her and her daughter. another waste of time!! Reality Steve is what makes this show, waiting from week to week to see what he has to say about it.
