So now that Catherine doesn’t have a one-on-one date until episode 6, doesn’t that seem pretty late for the chosen one? Like wouldn’t Sean be infatuated with her a little earlier if he is eventually gonna propose to her and would want to spend time with her a little earlier? It just doesn’t make sense! Thanks!
Comment: Who cares if it makes sense? Does anything on this show make sense? Sean got engaged to Catherine in Thailand and they are still engaged today. I don’t care what episode who did what in. All that matters is the end result, so, I guess it wasn’t pretty late for a first date since that’s the one he chose. I think you shouldn’t read into who gets what date and when. It’s not important.
I’ve noticed that every time Sean tweets about Kansas St or football, he always hashtags #EMAW. What does that mean?
Comment: It stands for “Every Man a Wildcat.” That’s their school motto. You know how all the ‘billies down in Bama end every sentence with “Roll Tide” or the kooks at Auburn greet you every morning with “War Eagle?” Or even the snobs at SMU wanna tell you to “Pony Up?” Well, Kansas St.’s motto is an abbreviation of EMAW. College sports are great, aren’t they?
Okay RS, I just can’t understand how the “stand-bys” as you call them, tolerate their boy/girl friend leaving them for bachelor/ette/pad and just simply take them back when they get back from filming. I seem to remember one of Brad’s first-season finalists doing something like that, maybe even marrying them eventually, and you’ve said Michael Stagliano and a few of Sean’s girls did/are doing that. So basically these people are getting dumped for a TV show, watching them make out with someone else on national television, and still take them back. Boggles my mind
Comment: Yeah, it is pretty comical, but some people enjoy the attention like that and want to be made a storyline out of. The Brad girl you’re talking about was Jenni. She admitted she got picked up at the airport by her ex-boyfriend and started dating him immediately from getting back. Of course, they ended up breaking up eventually and now she’s married to someone else, but it does happen.
There’s something to be said for women who go on this show and essentially get dumped on national television in front of millions of people. So yeah, I’m sure their embarrassed, so immediately when you get back home, you want to get back into your “comfort zone,” so you’ll tend to get back with someone you’re familiar with who kind of understands what you just went through, since you’re not allowed to tell a bunch of people.
Now in the cases where people are dating someone, then leave to do the show, that’s a bit different. I think you’d have to take it on a case-by-case basis because casting for these shows starts well in advance. You go to your first casting call probably a good 6 months before you ever leave for filming. I don’t think anyone who goes to a casting call ever thinks “I’m definitely getting cast.” So you do it on a whim, not thinking something will ever happen, then go about your life. You start casually seeing someone or whatever, then you get a call back to send in a video and questionnaire about yourself. Then if they like that, usually it’s a phone interview or something, and then you’re out to LA for final casting weekend. So maybe you aren’t serious with someone you just started dating, but technically you applied for the show before you even met them and they were in the picture. So it all depends on what each individual thinks is the respectable thing to do. And 90% of the time, they’re just banging someone on the side, but it’s not serious enough to prevent them from going on the show knowing how much more attention they’ll get from the opposite sex once the show airs, then they capitalize on that.
But anyone who had a serious, committed relationship and went on the show is definitely an idiot, however, their significant other is just as bad. If either of you allow that to happen, then your relationship wasn’t worth a damn anyway.
I’m laughing as I look on Facebook and twitter and people are acting like they haven’t read spoilers and are just guessing that Sean picks Catherine after the first episode!! They didn’t even really show her or anything about her on the first episode! No way anyone would guess on their own that he chose her based off that first episode!!
Comment: Yeah, that is pretty funny because there’s no way that anyone who hadn’t read any spoilers or heard rumors about them could possibly watch episode 1 and says, “Oh yeah, you could totally see he liked Catherine over everyone else.” We never even saw them interact outside of her limo exit which was what, 10 seconds? So no, if you don’t even see two people interact, yet you “predict” he’s gonna pick her, it’s obvious why you think that. I guess these people want to impress their friends or something. To each their own, but seems kinda lame to me.
I’ve been reading a lot of different rumors online about who the next bachelorette will be for season 9 (Emily again (no thanks), Cheryl Burke (nope), Vienna (N.O.), Kacie B (the only one I would actually see myself watching), and a fan favorite from Sean’s season) and I wanted to know who is actually being considered for it. If you know anything or have any insight about who is being approached, considered, or anything like that, that would be awesome to know. Thank you!
Any Bachelor Pad predictions too? I know it’s a total stretch at this point hahaha sorry. I could see John Wolfner doing it.
Thanks again! I know you get a ton of these e-mails.
Comment: Plenty of people they have “talks” with, but the only serious contenders would be the final three girls from this show who weren’t picked. With that said, I’m telling you, this is Lindsay’s gig to lose. And she’s not gonna lose it.
Haven’t really thought about “Bachelor Pad” much, but if you’re asking me who from Sean’s crop of girls they’d want, and who’d probably do it, I’d guess: Selma, Kristy, Lesley M., 50 Shades, Daniella, Jackie. And of course Paige because she needs to be on every season moving forward just so she can keep not receiving roses.
Hi Steve, I just love how the producers of the bachelor try to give exciting/impressive job descriptions for these people. I have the break down of what these jobs really are. Of coarse many of them just speak for themselves but here are some of my favorite:
Job title———Real meaning:
Entrepreneur- Knits Friendship bracelets and sells them at garage sale
Journalist- Blogs on Internet
Grad Student- Taking break from college, and lives with parents
Substitute Teacher- Unemployed
Jumbotron Operator- Operates a ride at Disneyworld
Community Organizer- Has block parties
Bridal Stylist- Works at a Bridal Store
Cosmetic Consultant- Sells Avon
Model- Unemployed, lives at home
Comment: I’d say that’s pretty damn accurate. Remember, there aren’t many high level jobs in America that if you go to them and say, “Yeah, I’m gonna go appear on a reality show, and I could be gone a week, but I could be gone 8 weeks. So can I go,” that they’d let you. Hence the reason we see a lot of “models,” “bartenders,” etc. I’ve still always been shocked that we’ve occasionally seen lawyers on this show. Why would any firm let one of their lawyers walk for possibly 8 weeks? Seems odd.
So I know this is way creepy and out of what you care about, but are you going to address anything on the Elan and Casey relationship? If I remember correctly, that is the Casey from ben’s season, right? Kinda odd… Interested in hearing how that came about, but know its none of our business. Just comes with being a fan of the show I guess… Haha
Comment: Yes producer Elan Gale, he of the giant bushy beard bordering on homeless, is dating Casey Shteamer from Ben’s season. I know nothing about their relationship nor do I really care. I’m sure they’ll last forever and ever.
This is such a joke. Seriously, how big of a threat are you? You do post spoilers but most importantly, you expose the show for what it is: a JOKE! You do not ruin the show for the millions of weirdos that want to believe it is real-you just echo the thoughts of the rest of us. The nut cases do not believe you anyways. What does the production company care? Just the fact that they served you four days before Christmas shows their compassion for people.
Good luck Steve, if I had any extra money I would donate to your defence.
Happy New Year?
Comment: In terms of donating, I haven’t put any donate buttons up nor do I think I will. Last season, I didn’t put a donate button up until 5 months in to the proceedings, and every single cent that was donated went to my legal team. It certainly helped, but I still have a bill to take care of that I’ll do on my own. We are still very early in the process here and I’m weighing all my options about what I plan on doing. A counterclaim is certainly not out of the question.
Don’t you think it’s time to just stop with spoiling the show? I mean, it’s probably costing you a lot of money to go against them. I just want you to stop being bothered. It was nice while it lasted and I thank you for your website, but I’d much rather see you not having to deal with lawsuits all the time. I’m just a fan looking out for you. I hope you have a good day!
Comment: Appreciate the concern, but I will fight this how I choose to fight this, thanks. When we finalized the Settlement Agreement last May, I basically agreed, “Hey, if I break the rules, then you can come after me again.” I haven’t broken any rules in the Agreement. If anybody has, it’s them. So I am not going to sit here and let them dictate how I operate. I’d admit guilt if I was guilty. I’m not.
