If you missed my tweet yesterday, I’ll repeat myself: Tomorrow I will be posting your episode-by-episode spoilers up to the final three guys. So hopefully that will hold a lot of you over until I find out with 100% certainty what happened from the overnight dates on. Well, besides the fact that Emily didn’t spend the night with any of her final three guys, which I reported a couple weeks ago. A lot of rumors/speculations/theories floating around out there about what happens at the end of this season. A lot. Once I feel comfortable with the correct information, I will relay it to everyone. Definitely quite a few pieces to this puzzle this season, and I think we’re in for an interesting ending based on what I’m hearing. But come tomorrow, you’ll have your breakdown of HOW we get to that point. As I mentioned, a lot of it was spoiled while filming was happening, but now you’ll have it all in one place. If you ever get lost, once the column goes up tomorrow, go to “Spoilers” at the top, then “The Bachelorette,” then “Bachelorette Emily Spoilers.” Simple if you ask me. Of course, I know it won’t be for those computer challenged. It’s ok. I blame your parents.
-Some news to give you on “Bachelor Pad.” Filming begins next week. Contestants are supposed to arrive next Monday, June 4th. Filming is expected to begin Wednesday or Thursday, the 6th or 7th. I’ve also been told it will film in LA (not sure if they’re using the same mansion or not), but that filming will take a bit longer than it has the last two seasons, when it’s only taken about 17 to 18 days to film. As WetPaint reported, it’s looking like filming will take close to a month, which is what I’ve been told as well.
Now, here is a tentative list of people you might be seeing on the show. I’ve separated it into two groups, those that you can “Pretty Much Confirmed,” and those that are still “Rumored.” Some in the rumored list might very well be all set to be on the show, but as far as I know, it’s only rumored at this point and I didn’t have solid enough info to put them on the “Pretty Much Confirmed” list. Here’s what I’ve been able to gather thus far:
“Pretty Much Confirmed”:
Rozlyn Papa (it wouldn’t be a “Bachelor Pad” season if Rozlyn wasn’t rumored considering they’ve wanted her on for the first two seasons and she’s turned them down. Three is a charm. We’ll see).
Now, obviously there are other names out there but I haven’t heard yet. There will be people not listed here who end up on the show, no doubt. But I think this is a pretty solid list from everything I’ve gathered. I know a lot of you are gonna want to ask, “Well, what about so and so?” I’m just telling you, these are the names that I’m hearing right now and I know nothing else. I’m very confident you will see those first 6 names on the show. And I’d say you can expect to see probably half of those other names on the “Rumored” list. I know you’ll also probably want to ask “Michael Stagliano? He won it last season.” Yes, he did. For whatever reason, his name is in the mix again.
As for the “newbies,” there’s still no confirmation of how many ABC plans on casting, but I honestly don’t think it’ll be that many. Nor do we know how that’s going to work at all. Let things play out, and we’ll see what happens. I’ve spoiled every episode and elimination from the first two seasons of “Bachelor Pad” before it aired, and I suspect I’ll do the same this season. I think by next week we’ll have a little more confirmation as to who’s on the show. Kinda hard to keep that one a secret since all of these people have Facebook and Twitter accounts. I’m trying to find out information on who some of the “newbies” are as we speak. I think I know of a couple already, but waiting to get it confirmed.
With my birthday being this Thursday, there will be a “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” column, plus whatever else news is going on, but I don’t think I’m going to have a live video blog that night. So any questions that you have, be sure to send them in to me in the next couple days at firstname.lastname@example.org.
