Well, let the madness begin. Tonight is the first night of filming for Sean’s season, however, you still wouldn’t know that if you’re an outsider who doesn’t read the internet since ABC still hasn’t officially announced who the next “Bachelor” will be. My guess is Sean will be in the crowd tonight for the “Dancing with the Stars” premiere and that’s when it’ll become “official.” Then again, Chris Harrison said it himself last night during the red carpet show for the Emmy’s, so it’s not much of a secret. And just like Emily’s season, Mike Fleiss says he and producers will be live tweeting tonight during the girls’ limo arrivals, which is always riveting stuff, since they basically say nothing whatsoever. Go look back on Emily’s first night to see what kinda things they tweet and you’ll realize it’s a whole lot of nothing.
Last Thursday I mentioned that Arie was going to be at the mansion that day filming a segment with Sean which will be run during the first episode at some point. Well, it’s been filmed and pretty much what I expected. Nothing important. They did a humorous segment where Arie was teaching Sean how to kiss. I guess since Sean has been taking some heat for his kissing skills last season, they figured a way to shoe horn Arie into a 5 minute appearance on Sean’s season would have him come and teach him the art of lip locking. Once again, riveting stuff. But hey, the Arie crazies will get their fix, and when the ratings come out the day after the premiere, we can listen to them all squeal about how it was because Arie made a 5 minute appearance on 2 hour show. Can’t wait. Gotta love the crazies.
The ironic thing about this Arie/Sean segment? I figured that’d be a perfect opportunity for them to actually bring Jenna Burke (Ben’s season) on to teach Sean about kissing. Remember how a couple weeks ago I told you that I had some not-so-scandalous info on Sean that I was following up on? Well, it has to do with Jenna. Two weeks ago, when Sean was back in New York for the Real Beanz event with other Bachelor alumni, he hooked up with Jenna. Nothing serious, since obviously at that point Sean pretty much knew he was going to be the “Bachelor,” but he made out with her anyway. I guess he only knows the answer to why he did it, but it definitely happened.
One last note regarding yesterday’s Lemonade Stand in NYC. I heard it was a great turn out, and judging by the donation’s page, they’re close to raising $4000 on that site alone, not to mention whatever was raised at the stand itself. However, no props go out to Ed Swiderski who committed to being at the event, but on the morning of the event says he “missed his flight” and didn’t inform anyone. They didn’t find out til later. Once again, a sh**ty thing to do, but as I’ve said numerous times in the past, I’m not the least bit surprised by anything I hear regarding anyone from this franchise. I missed my flight? Really? What a horrible excuse.
