“Reality Roundup,” “Reader Emails,” “Dr. Reality Steve,” & 5 Videos That You’ll Hate Me For Posting

Back with a “Reality Roundup,” a few “Reader Emails,” some “Dr. Reality Steve” questions, and something that I’m sure you’ll hate me for by the end of today. It came up in a “Reader Email,” and since the question had me searching YouTube videos, and then subsequently had all those videos running through my head for the next 24 hours or so, I figured I’d pass it on to all of you. You can thank me later.

Final rose ceremony happens this Saturday in Thailand. Obviously, I don’t know when I’ll have the spoiler of who Sean picked. Could be Sat night, it could be in two weeks. I have no idea. I’m pretty sure I know who the three were who made it to Thailand, and I’m pretty sure I know who the final two are, but not 100% confident enough to run with it now. Once I know for sure, I’ll let you know. Hopefully I will have your complete final four breakdown shortly, but like I’ve always said, I never know when and where my information is coming to me, so you’ll just have to be patient.

Forgot to mention this on Tuesday, but Ashley and JP’s “official” announcement of when their wedding special is gonna air was released earlier this week. It’s gonna be a two hour episode that airs Sunday night, Dec. 16th at 9PM EST/8PM CST. What’s interesting is that the wedding is taking place on Dec. 1st. So 15 days are gonna pass between the time the wedding takes place and the time it airs? Yikes. Basically if you read a tabloid or any entertainment news site, you’ll probably have already seen tons of pictures and have plenty of info of what alumni were there, what dress she wore, what kind of cake they ate, what dinner was served, etc. Jason and Molly’s they turned around in 9 days, and look how much stuff we’d already knew before it aired. Oh well. Lets just hope the rain stays away.

Did you see where Ben came out and admitted what pretty much most of America thought of his decision to pick Courtney? I’d say that’s pretty big of him now to admit, “You know what? Maybe I did have my blinders on when everyone was telling me otherwise.” It’s not like Ben is the only person on the planet this has happened to, and he certainly won’t be the last. Don’t we all have a friend that was dating someone no one liked, yet even if you tell them, they stick by their significant other? Of course they do. Most people would in the short term. Now granted, it took Ben a full year to figure that out about Courtney, and the longer they stayed together, I think even more people started possibly changing their minds about her. Then not a week after they break up, she’s making out with Arie, and basically everyone is able to see right through her and what she’s all about. I wonder if the 24 other girls are willing to accept Ben’s apology? I commend the guy for admitting his mistake publicly. Storm Horse!

Now, I’m going to piss all of you off. Well, that is if you take the time to click on each of these songs so they will be embedded in your head all day long. This was a “Reader Email” I got this week that was completely unrelated to anything “Bachelor” or television.

RS,

Do you have like a top 5 of songs that absolutely drive you crazy? Not even crazy in a bad way. Just crazy in that you can never get it out of your head if you come across it on the radio. I was listening to a 90′s station on XM and “You Can’t Touch This” came on and it got me to thinking that it would definitely be in my Top 5. What would yours be?

Comment: Well, you asked, so here’s your answer. You’re welcome for me putting these songs in your head the rest of the day. These are my top five. If I were to add a 6th, no dobut it would be Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Ever Getting Back Together.” For those curious (and I know you are), I’ve included the actual lyrics to “Gangnam Style” and the “Macarena” chorus translated in English. God, I had no idea that chorus was so damn cheesy. How stupid. Can’t imagine why that song lost its shelf life after about a month. Really? THAT’S what I was dancing at weddings to? Giving happiness to my body? I will now go jump off a bridge (and don’t tell me you didn’t stand up and do the “Macarena” when you listened to that. I know you did. I did).

“Gangnam Style”

Oppa is Gangnam style
Gangnam style
A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist
I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh
A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that
I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
You know what I’m saying
Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

“Macarena” (Chorus)

In Spanish:

“Dale a tu cuerpo alegría Macarena
Que tu cuerpo es pa’ darle alegría y cosas buenas
Dale a tu cuerpo alegría Macarena
¡Eh,… Macarena! Aaay!”

In English:

“Give happiness to your body Macarena
’cause your body is for giving happiness and nice things to
Give happiness to your body Macarena
Heeey,… Macarena! Aaay!”

  1. @lobsterandbeer-
    I think the same thing about Penner. I’ve told my husband all season that he sounds just like Alan Alda but my husband doesn’t hear it. Thanks so much for the validation!!

  2. @lobsterandbeer! Well said! I mean, come on, Whitney was a few short of a 6 pack..what a horrible, horrible girl she is. I wish I lived in Calgary..I’d track her down and give her a piece of my mind, lol! We shall see about Brad and Bianca. I honestly think the entire “journey” was more that what Brad expected, but I honestly wish him and Bianca the best. I heart Brad..I really do!

  3. ***Bachelor Canada***

    lobsterandbeer & Dianne. Hurray! Brad booted Whitney before the “final rose” … although she sounded like she was trying to beat him to the punch – she almost didn’t let him say what he had to say!

    I didn’t find Whitney remotely attractive – especially that practically permanent scowl of hers – & couldn’t understand why Brad kept referring to her as “hot.” But then, did you notice on the visit to Brad’s family that Whitney actually looked VERY much like Brad’s sister?! Seriously, except for the platinum blondeness of the sister’s hair, they looked spookily alike!

    Whitney’s visit to Brad’s family was a disaster & her scowl was on full display. You could tell no one in that family liked her. Bianka, on the other hand, had a fabulous visit, seemed to fit in with great ease, and was genuinely liked by Brad’s family.

    That said, I believe that, just like with the U.S. Bach franchise, there’s no way these two are going to get married. They barely know each other! Eventually, Brad’s going to see Bianka’s emotional neediness; and Bianka’s going to see Brad’s immaturity (he’s got a whole lotta growing up to do).

    As for Bachelor Canada’s host … jeeze, I thought HE was in love with Brad! Did you see the overly-long hug he gave Brad after escorting him to the proposal site? Hahahahahaha.

    **Survivor Phillipines**
    I agree, lobsterandbeer, Penner sounds exactly like the Hawkeye character on M*A*S*H! I’ve said that from day one, too.

    Malcolm was smart to put the kibosh on any talk of strategy during the spa reward. I have to say, I’m rooting for him. He took a HUGE risk not playing his idol once Abi played hers, knowing that any votes against her wouldn’t count. It paid off though, so right now he’s sitting pretty.

    I am soooooo glad they forced Abi to use her idol. I can’t wait for that beyotch to leave!

    I think Penner may have shot himself in the foot when he passed on making a deal with Lisa and Stuben.

    **Thanksgiving Wishes to my Fellow Fans in the U.S.**
    Happy Thanksgiving! I didn’t get to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving as my Mum was in hospital at the time. Maybe I’ll celebrate today, instead (Mum’s out of hospital and recovering, so that’s definitely something to be grateful for)!

  4. LOL@Kasey33! Thanks for the Thanksgiving greeting, but we celebrated our Thanksgiving last month. It’s a Canadian thing, lol! Hope you have a great Black Friday! Typical Canadian stores trying to compete with the U.S. Black Friday..which is truly crazy, but then again, that’s Canada, lol!

  5. **Football**
    Good weekend for football here. Both my teams beat their arch rivals Ohio State over Michigan and Browns over Steelers. Doesn’t get any better than that for me!

    **Amazing Race**
    The best thing about last night is that we didn’t have to see the Tweenies much since did fast forward. Yikes…they get on my nerves. Jammes cracked me up in their bowties and colors. I want them or the goat farmers to win. I think just 2 more weeks.

  6. Hey all, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, enjoying turkey and family. Who watched The Amazing Race?

    TAR SPOILER ALERT
    How strange was it that “twinnies” had to convince the ticket agent to sell them a ticket? Since when does a ticket agent refuse to sell you a ticket just because they think the time between flights is too short to connect? “Awesome balls”? Did I hear that right?

    Abbie and Ryan have NO luck in Frankfurt….first they miss their connection then their plane has mechanical difficulties? Really?

    Then the “twinnies” go fruit loops over the “boat bus”! Having to eat that fish raw would totally gag me.
    I think my favorite thing about this show is getting see all the places they travel, that I most likely will never get to visit.

    Not going to lie, when the Chippendales “took it off” for the cha ching, I was mesmerized :D . I wanted to donate. How sweet are they, they struggle to U-turn any other team just because they don’t want to lose friends. But in the end…. :\ .

    What a “plan” though, to U-turn the Chippendales after seeing they had already been through so that the the “u-turned” team was pretty much guaranteed a last place, only way they were getting out of elimination was if this leg was non elim….What a refreshing change this season, everyone seems to have a conscience, well except for the “twinnies” of course.

    @helio – at this point, I’m team Chippendales all the way. Go boys!

  7. Morning, all! Hope everyone had a great long weekend. Back to reality for me at work today. (And what do I do within the first half hour, come check RS for new comments of course, sad.. ) :)

    Anyone else notice RS’s “KA-BOOM!” tweet yesterday? I’m wondeing if that was directed at Fleiss and that he’s about to release the Bachelor spoilers? Here’s hoping! I’m getting sick of Wetpaint running their same stories over and over again on FB. Especially the one that says “Did Sean Lowe get engaged this weekend?” Then you click on it and the story was posted over a week ago.

    *Sports*
    Crappy, crappy sports results for me the past few days. Lakers lost 2 out of 3, and my Boys lost at home on Thanksgiving (not surprised there, considering all week ESPN had been repeatedly saying that Romo had never lost on Thanksgiving- thanks for the jinx, a-holes)

    *Revenge*
    Interesting episode last night! I thought the first 20 min or so lagged but it got better as it went on. At least we know for sure now why Kenny and his brother have it out for the Porter boys. Next week’s looks really good. Ewwwww about the images of Ashley with Conrad in the previews.

  8. THE AMAZING RACE
    @Helio and @Randais…I knew I would log on today to see comments from you both! :) I love the Chippendales…I am rooting them to win it all! I actually like all of the teams left (the Twinnies still annoy me on occasion, but not as much as they used to). I was happy to see Ryan go…he was definitely cast as the pretentious, arrogant male this season. I did feel bad for Abbie…I may have shed a tear when she hugged that lady after the Detour who gave them the money they needed to complete the task. They were definitely the strongest team this season. But with their departure, I have hope that the Chippendales can win it all.

    It seems like 2 things happened on last night’s episode that I haven’t seen on TAR before, although there were a few seasons that I skipped…first, Abbie and Ryan booked 2 flights in case they missed their first connecting flight. I didn’t realize that teams were allowed to do this. Also, the Twinnies definitely showed that they are very strategic players. I don’t remember another season where someone who already passed the U-turn was intentionally u-turned. It made sense so that Ryan and Abbie were unable to use the u-turn, but I don’t think this has been done in the past. However, if Ryan and Abbie were not delayed at the airport, they still may have been able to avoid elimination. I think that their flight was supposed to land at 2:30pm before the delay and the Beekman boys were not supposed to arrive until 4:45pm.

    It seems like the rest of the teams are evenly matched, so it will be a good fight to the end. While the Beekman boys do not pose a physical threat to the other teams, they are both very smart and do well at some tasks that are difficult for others.

  9. @jil – I’ve seen the double booking of airline flights before. I can’t remember specifically when but I was just as surprised as you when it happened. The u-turning a previous team, I’ve seen that too but not intentionally. In fact I’m pretty sure it happened earlier this season, wasn’t it the goat farmers, they u-turned a team they hoped/thought was behind them but they were actually ahead of them.

    REVENGE

    “Mother”….saw that one coming. “Mommy Dearest” may be a better description. Great casting. Vicky got a little “revenge” of her own, didn’t she? Talk about devious. I don’t think there is as single character on this show that doesn’t have an agenda/plan/vendetta.

    So am I the only one that thinks Victoria’s lips are lopsided? Maybe too much botox in the left side, not enough on the right, or is it just me?

    Flashback Thanksgiving 6 years ago. Well now we know where Ashley and fauxEm’s first met. Apparently the same day as fauxEm and Aiden (who was on a “mission” of his own). So are we to now think that the Russian mafia was involved in the plane wreck they blamed Amanda’s father for? The plot thickens.

    Nolan, who gives/gets presents on Thanksgiving? AND we now know where fauxEm’s got all her money from too! Way to drain an account Nolan, but we always knew he was indebted to fauxEm’s dad and thus why he is so devoted to fauxEm.

    “Perhaps Daniel should have been a poet after all”…perhaps Conrad is right.

  10. @randais, Are you really that dense??? You only got that you know now where FauxEm got all her money from too? Repeat after me, David Clarke invested in Nolan’s company. Nolan gave Amanda aka FauxEm her share of her dad’s investment. The only reason this was brought up in last night’s episode was the reveal that Nolan’s ex lover the CFO was aware of this fact so that when we go back to present day and Daniel wakes him up by calling him, we are aware he knows that “Amanda” got 500 million dollars. I suggest you go back to watching shows like Sesame Street where you can learn words and numbers and leave Revenge to people who are more intelligent than you showcase yourself to be.
