Emily started making the rounds this week on the talk show circuit and, wow, she’s been coached well. From her conference call, to her local appearance on Charlotte TV, to “Good Morning America,” to “Live with Kelly,” to Jimmy Kimmel, this chick has the same canned answers nailed down. I don’t even know why people are bothering to ask her questions anymore. She’s programmed to say the same things in every interview. Here’s some of the repeating phrases I’ve heard, “I was happy before the show and I’m happy now,” “I learned a lot about myself in this experience,” – the list goes on. But you know what else she’s repeated a couple times? That when she saw the guys the first night, if this were her “normal life,” she probably wouldn’t have given them a chance. Yikes. A little harsh no? And she keeps reiterating that she’s glad she went through with the process because, essentially, none of these guys met her criteria based on their first impressions. A little rough, no?
Yesterday morning, ABC had accidentally released their “Diaries of the Departed” video on their website which showed Kyle, Aaron, and Joe giving their farewell speeches so I tweeted it out to let people know who was eliminated. Within an hour or so, ABC had set the video to “private,” so obviously someone screwed up by letting that out there a day early. Has a show that’s been on 10 years like this show has ever had this sloppy of an editing department? I mean, we can go back years and years and find numerous occasions of editing mishaps, things being shown out of order, etc. I wonder if there’s any accountability for it, or if they just brush it under the rug as no big deal. It’s one thing to show Rego having a cast on one leg, then in the next shot it’s on another, because that was explained. But releasing who gets eliminated before the episode airs was obviously a mistake or else they would’ve just left it up there all day.
Remember back months ago when I posted the Zillow.com listing for the mansion on Marvin Road that the guys were living in this season? At the time, it was being listed for $3.9 million. Now the mansion is going to get 3 episodes on national television and now it’s being listed for $5.9 million. Amazing what one television show can do for the housing market. Here’s the most recent article on the house. That’s crazy. Especially when a bunch of beekcakes probably just urinated all over the place and trashed the walls. Not to mention what the shower drains are probably filled with. You know. 19 guys, no female companionship to speak of…just sayin. I hope the maid service spent extra time squeegee’ing the showers.
