Hello, I love what you do.
I was just curious if you have ever thought about having iPhone app created for your updates and spoilers? I would love the app!!
Comment: We thought about it, but the costs involved are a concern, plus, outside of the column itself, I don’t know if it’d be worth it just to have my column up there. It’s still an option, but honestly, we’ve put it on the backburner for the time being.
My question is, what happened between Arie and Courtney?
Is Sean legitimately good friends with anyone from the franchise?
Comment: What happened between Arie and Courtney? Their little fling was never gonna be any more than a fling. It ran its course, and now it’s over. She’s moved on, and so has he. Numerous times.
Yeah, just reading Sean’s twitter account, you can tell he’s still good buddies with Jon Wolfner, Charlie Grogan, and a few others from his season. He’s also workout partners with Jeremy Anderson and I believe he’s even hung out on a couple of occasions with Tanner Pope. Seems like he’s closest to Wolfner from his season since they tweet each other constantly about their bromance.
While I realize this will never happen, don’t you think we should petition ABC to do a version of the bachelor/bachelorette that is specifically targeted at the male 18-30 demo? Beer commercials. Bachelorettes that all look like Selma (or at least built like her). Bachelors like Ed or Chris from Bachelor Pad 3. OK, maybe scratch the last one. You get the idea. Maybe be better for Skinemax, though.
Comment: Yeah, you might have to throw that one on cable. Would be much more entertaining. With how much Selma posts self pictures on Instagram, I’m guessing this is someone that wants to continue some sort of career in the entertainment industry and will bleed this show dry for any publicity she can get. Hey, maybe I’m completely wrong and we’ll never see or hear from her again. But I doubt it.
I think the spoilers enhance the viewing of the show. You can watch for the hidden clues in how the Bachelor interacts with the one he chooses. Of course, Mike Fleiss is too dumb to see that. It’s one reason Columbo was so successful.
Comment: Well, I may be old, but I ain’t that old. Can’t say I watched Columbo. Is that the one with the dude who had the parrot on his shoulder then murdered his wife about 10 years ago? Robert Blake?
Thanks again for Spoiling this season! I love that I can tell my friends who the ‘winner’ is before the season even starts.
It’s quite sad how emotionally invested people are in this show. I watch it for a Monday night laugh, I honestly would not be still watching the show if your site wasn’t around, it’s is the sole reason I watch. ABC can stuff their lawsuit too, it’s sad that they want to bully you in to stopping spoiling, I wonder how bad ratings will be if Reality Steve goes away.
Do you think that they monitor former bachelor/bachelorette social media sites? I was bored last night scrolling through instagram (and yes sadly i follow Emily) i commented on a picture Emily posted on instagram of her of her passed out (roofied?) after her first night. I posted the name of the winner (thought it would be funny to ruffle some feathers) and within minutes that comment was deleted, there were at least 120 comments on there already so I can’t imagine when Emily gets notifications that people are posting on her instagram she checks it immediately. Thoughts?
Are you going to be collecting law suit donations again?
Comment: There will always be the nut jobs who watch someone on TV and think they know them, think they’re bff’s with them, get emotionally invested, tweet at them all the time, “like” all their Instagram pics, and what not. I just try and stay as far away from those people as possible because honestly, they have a screw loose somewhere. If you honestly think that you really know anything about someone that you watch on a reality TV show for 10 weeks, you are living in fantasy land. But they’re there every season, so it’s definitely enjoyable to poke fun at them for their lunacy. They certainly provide some great comic relief for things they said and do, that’s for sure. The thing is, they don’t think it’s funny and are too wrapped up in their own little world to realize what a joke people think they are. Quite amusing.
Good job on posting the winner on Emily’s Instagram. I will say I’m not surprised one bit that people jumped down your throat and it was deleted. Next time, go on there and say something bad about Jef and watch the maniacs go even more crazy. I think there are people in this world that still think Jef and Emily are the greatest couple known to mankind, shared the greatest love story ever told on television, will get back together someday and be married forever. Delusional.
I don’t see the need to ask for donations this time around. Too early.
“I had tweeted about that dress that Britney Spears wore the something very similar on the X Factor semifinal show.”
Just wanted to point out that Jaclyn from Bachelor Pad season 3 wore what looked like the same dress as Britney Spears during the Bachelor Pad Season 3 Finale.
I love your blog btw!
Comment: Yes, a couple people have brought that up to me since yesterday. I don’t remember what Jaclyn wore on the BP finale, but if people are saying she did, then I’m sure she did. I just know I noticed it on Kacie and it looked great.
I have been a regular reader on your blog for Bachelor/Bachelorette spoilers for several years now and I must say that I am one of those fans who enjoy the show tremendously despite the fact I’ve read the spoilers. What can I say, I don’t like surprises?
I wanted to submit a question that perhaps you may take the time to answer….
Why is it that the producers choose contestants who are blatantly incompatible with Sean….like the Fifty Shades of Beligerant girl….or the Democrat….or just the not-so-impressive or not-so-attractive girls? Honestly, I have probably have 25 friends who are better-looking and more impressive than those 26 women last night. I was so disappointed at the lack of impressiveness in the majority of them. Of course, there were a handful of quality options, but I mean, seriously? Sean is a very impressive individual and I was hoping to see a house full of very impressive ladies for him to choose from but I just wasn’t seeing that. Maybe I’m crazy, but why would they waste spots on the show with girls who clearly Sean wouldn’t settle for? He could do so much better and I hate he didn’t have better options. Frustrated.
Comment: Easy question to answer. Because it’s a television show. The last thing they care about is finding the 26 most compatible women for Sean. Same as every season. You cast 10-15 girls who you know have no chance (fillers). You cast another 5 or so that will be good TV and make interesting characters, and then you cast 4-6 girls that you really truly think he will like.
If they went and cast every single woman as a perfect match for Sean, the show would be boring. No one wants to see 25 of the same women. You gotta mix different personality types, with different looks, different temperaments, etc. Any time you ask yourself any question about this show, remember to keep in mind that they don’t care about these people. All they care about is making a television show that you’ll watch. Period. End of story.
I wanted to tell you how much I love your blog and also how much your blog has help me with my English. Its a fun way to learn new words.
