Well, well, well. The big 3-7. I’m officially in my late 30’s. Shoot me now. And I don’t feel a day older than 21. Or something like that. No live video blog tonight due to the fact I’ll be out at dinner and just wanted to take a one week break. Figured today would be the time to do it. Thanks to all who’ve send birthday wishes. Impossible to reply to all of them.
Wanted to correct one thing from the spoilers yesterday that I have since updated. In Prague, I said that Sean gets the group date rose and Doug is eliminated during the 3-on-1 date because he gets upset by it. Actually, had it backwards. Sean does get the rose, but it’s AFTER Doug has already been eliminated. So Emily gives Sean the group date rose when it’s just between him and Chris. And Chris isn’t thrilled about it. Just wanted to clarify that.
Couple updates from the ever-so-changing “Bachelor Pad” list that I released on Tuesday. Some new information has come in that I can tell you about. Ryan Bowers is definitely NOT doing the show, so you can cross him off. However, you can take Michael Stagliano off the “rumored” list, because he’s definitely doing it. I mean, I see why the show would bring him back because he was popular last season and women will want to see him find a chick on there after the Holly/Blake embarrassment last season. But Michael won the damn thing. Can he really win it two years in a row? I immediately thought, “No way. They’d be stupid to keep him around.” Then again, in the first two seasons, all of the major players all got to the end with people not wanting to piss others off. I guarantee Michael gets far again. Probably won’t win, but I gotta think he’ll make the finals.
Holy crap! Did you see this article by In Touch Magazine yesterday about Emily’s wardrobe budget being $350k for this season? Yikes. What makes it all the more shocking is that it’s probably about a $349,650 bigger budget than Ben had for his wardrobe. I mean, when you’re wearing orange pocketed tank tops all season that sell for $9.99 at Old Navy, how much could they have possibly spent on him? So for anyone who would possibly question why Emily would ever reconsider doing the “Bachelorette,” I’d say this is one of the major reasons. I don’t care who you are, what woman would turn down the opportunity to basically have an AMEX black card account for their wardrobe for 2 months while traveling the world? That’s what I thought.
Did anyone catch Brad Womack in studio with the Bobby Bones radio show earlier this week? If you’ve got 8 minutes, I suggest you take a listen and watch this video. Good stuff. You know, after watching Brad for two seasons on the “Bachelor,” and seeing and listening to numerous interviews he’s done, I’ve come to this conclusion: Brad’s three favorite phrases to use in this world are “True story…”, “Let me tell you…”, and “I will say this…”. I don’t think I’ve ever heard him give an interview where neither of those three phrases were spilled. Take a listen to what Brad had to say about Emily, their relationship, and how he feels about her on the show now. I liked this interview. I appreciate the fact he’s open and honest. Well, except he thought his season had 30 women. You had 25 Brad. (Correction: Brad did have 30 girls. See? 37 and my mind is already leaving me). But who’s counting? Really the first time he’s talked openly about everything. I think the whole “dodged a bullet” comment he made a couple weeks ago was definitely taken out of context.
And before the emails start coming, no, Brad has nothing to do with Emily’s season.
And one last piece to show how bored it can get in the mansion sometimes. With girls, we’ve seen in the past they drink, do the cinnamon challenge, exercise, etc. This is pretty much what you’d expect a bunch of testosterone filled guys to do in a mansion where they are completely cut off from society.
Surprised after they were done measuring their biceps, they weren’t going around measuring each others packages…
