The Bachelor Sean Recap Including Updated Episode 6 & 7 Spoilers and Who Shows Up in St. Croix?

January 29th, 2013 | 79 Comments | Posted in The Bachelor 17 - Sean

Gonna do one minor change to the column in an effort to see how it affects my analytics for the site. I’m going to flip-flop the days “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” are posted. So starting tomorrow, “Dr. Reality Steve” will appear on Wednesdays, with “Reader Emails” appearing on Thursdays until further notice. We’re tinkering with a couple things and I just wanted to change something up. So get your “Dr. Reality Steve” emails in today and good chance they’ll be appearing tomorrow. It also gives people an extra day to get in questions from Monday night’s show, or from reading the column on Tuesday. Send all emails to steve@realitysteve.com.

Last Thursday I had tweeted about some information regarding St. Croix that I hadn’t been made aware of yet. If you missed those, here’s what I tweeted:

“@RealitySteve : Hearing a little note about something in St Croix I hadn’t heard yet. Let me get more details & report when I’ve got it 100% confirmed.”

“@RealitySteve : It’s nothing earth shattering & doesn’t change any spoilers, but it’s noteworthy.”

Then on Friday after getting my information confirmed, I tweeted out:

“@RealitySteve : Lets just say what happens in St. Croix is something we’ve seen before in a previous season. In fact, we saw it in Ben’s season.”

Obviously when I tweeted this out, I knew a lot of people would reply and guess that it had to do with one of the girls coming back on the show. And it does. Sort of (Some actually even guessed that Sean skinny dips with someone. Uhhhhh, no). While almost all of you guessed it had to do with a girl returning to try and win Sean back, you were partially right. A girl does show up in St. Croix, just not to win Sean back.

Sean’s sister Shay shows up in St. Croix to talk with Sean. Shay doesn’t meet any of the women as far as I know, but, Shay’s birthday is Oct. 25th, and that was the day of the rose ceremony in St. Croix, so Sean had her flown out for her birthday. The day of the rose ceremony is the day that Tierra has her meltdown and basically Sean sends her packing before the rose ceremony ever takes place.

I’m not sure on the exact details if Shay was supposed to meet the women and didn’t because Tierra melts down, or maybe she was supposed to meet Tierra, but then Tierra melted down and it didn’t happen, or maybe she was never supposed to meet the women at all. What I do know is that Shay was brought out there because Sean wanted to see his sister on her birthday and they filmed a segment together.

Now, I’m sure some of you might go to Shay’s blog from October and see that she made a post from Oct. 25th entitled “Homecoming,” which shows pictures of her and her husband arriving home from their vacation they had taken before that. Well, it looks like she fooled a lot of people, because she was in St. Croix on Oct. 25th, not arriving home at the airport. So yeah, she threw people off the beaten path with that post. Seems she and her husband arrived home before that, but then just posted it when she knew she’d be gone again. Whatever the case, I tweeted we saw this Ben’s season, because we saw Ben’s sister show up in episode 3 to talk to him. However, as stated Shay’s appearance doesn’t affect the spoilers in any way. Tierra leaves before the rose ceremony after a meltdown and Sean lets her go, and then Lesley M. is eliminated at the rose ceremony.

As for some updated spoilers, thanks to TVGuide.com for giving us episode descriptions, it is now confirmed that 9 women are still remaining after next Monday’s episode in Whitefish, Montana. So next week, Jackie gets eliminated on the 2-on-1 date, and Robyn is sent home at the rose ceremony. So in Canada (which will air the next night on Feb. 5th), Sarah leaves at some point during the group date, and Selma and Daniella are the other two casualties this episode. Also, Desiree has the other 1-on-1 with Sean rappelling down a cliff, while Catherine has the “monster snow truck ride on a glacier” followed by the night time visit to the ice castle, leaving Sarah, Selma, Daniella, Lindsay, Desiree, Catherine, and Tierra as the 7 girls who go canoeing on Lake Louise. These have been updated in your “Bachelor Sean Spoilers” page. There you go. Now your whole season of spoilers is complete.

  1. I hate nitpicking,;) but I remember Steve bashing Arie/(Emilly) how the only thing they ever do is making out and how shallow that kind of a relationship is…(btw, whole-heartedly agree) ….. yet now he openly admits that this is the only thing Lindsay and Sean are doing, yet he seems completely enthralled with her and their romance…. lolz;) I guess it´s different if the person´s got boobs…

  2. Hey Steve, I think you mean on Episode 6 that Ashlee goes on the group date not Catherine (you have Catherine listed as going on the 1 on 1 and the group)

  3. Steve throwing down the pearl necklace reference with Sean and Selma. Nice.

    That Selma date was really odd to me. She was dressing like a modern women showing plenty of cleavage and skin, she basically was assaulting him physically by laying all over him, then she got all uptight about a kiss? Easy to see why she gets sent packing. He is developing natural emotional feelings for other girls that come from the kissing and interaction that she will not do. Sort of an odd combination.

  4. Is anyone else starting to notice that based on what they showed so far Catherine and Sean’s relationship seems shallow? She was talking to him they showed her say “I’m really attracted to you, you are so hot” blah blah blah and he says the same back. When are we going to see them have a REAL connection. They have showed it already with other girls, Lindsay and Des…. I guess they are really trying to throw everyone off.
    Selma was annoying on her date last night… It would be one thing to not got to a “Fantasy Suite” if she was one of the last ones, but not to kiss someoene? I’m sorry but I don’t buy it for once second that she is not wild when it comes to dating and sex.

  5. Oh for the love of all that is holy, Steve – bashing on Train now??? Oh, I feel a heart attack coming on. And by the way, I had never seen or heard of Ben Taylor, but that little blip they showed last night – sure looks like his dad may be James Taylor and his mom would be Carly Simon. He looks and sounds like his dad, just sayin

  6. How could you not mention the tossing of the rose from the balcony? Highlight of the show. Yeah, Sean of that one all by himself. Perfect. And it landed perfectly. How many takes guys? What a set up…the whole date.Sean sat across from her looking like she had a bad case of body odor…so much fun.

  7. @strick432 – good observation re: Ben Taylor..” He is the son of folk rock artists James Taylor and Carly Simon”. Found this info on Wikipedia.

  8. Ben Taylor is indeed James and Carly’s son. He has a darling song which he sang in a movie recently with Anna Faris and Chris Evans. The song is “My Wicked Way With You”. Check it out on Youtube. I really loved it and while singing it in the movie, worked rather well in he scene with Chris Evans (who is mighty fine, I might add)!

    I thought Steve had Catherine listed on the rock climbing date but it was Selma instead. Tell me I didn’t read it incorrectly.

    I am gonna go out on a limb now (as I usually do) and say I am not impressed with Catherine’s looks. Desiree is far more attractive as is Sarah. Just something about her doesn’t do it for me in the pretty department.

    Okay…didn’t see the show much. Focused on The Following and looks like this wonderful show will get my total viewing attention. The surprises and flash backs are what makes it very interesting.

  9. Is there somewhere where RS explains what we see in the previews with Tierra running in her bikini sreaming and freezing her ass off and medics coming and we see her shaking with eyeliner running everywhere? What happened??

  10. @Dianne – I had not a clue until they showed that little blip of his face – looks like his Dad SOOOO much – I wasn’t really even listening to the music either, but after I saw his face and realized who he was, I listened to him singing and he sounds just like him, too. That is so weird that family members can even talk alike. Check out that creepy, weird, kinky Marv Albert and his creepy weird son Kenny.

  11. hahahaha im laughing so hard that im crying at this one:
    “For a moment there, I fully expected to whip out a bottle of Hershey’s syrup and start pouring it all over herself. Then break out a chocolate cake, a glass of chocolate milk, a chocolate soufflé, only to have Willy Wonka show up and deliver Sean a Golden Ticket. We get it, Robyn.”

    whenever im having a bad day, i will resort back to this comment.. thank u, steve!

  12. **BIGGEST LOSER**
    Time to get healthy on a budget, now we’re talking reality! So they had to buy food for a week with just $10 a day per person, per team. No coupons though! THAT’S NOT realistic! :D But really, what family doesn’t do this on a weekly basis? I do, so great challenge for the real world. Then they bring in the Biggest Loser Chef and she shows them how to actually work with their budget and THAT makes sense.

    Blue team – “so today we have a new trainer, his name is Drill Sergeant Bob”.

    I think it’s hilarious that NOW Jillian shows her “soft” side, only took 4 contestants to get it out!

    I LOVE Dolvett’s interaction with the kids, he’s got a way of motivating and empathizing that is pretty amazing.

    I appreciate that PF is sponsoring this season again. The winner of the weekly challenge won 10 yearly memberships to PF to give away to friends and/or family. That’s motivational! Who doesn’t want work out buddies? I actually go to PF and 1/2 of the times I go alone and the other 1/2 with hubby and while we aren’t doing the exact same things I enjoy having him there to check in with. At first I thought this challenge was going to be totally biased against the one member team but then they show that while the other two teams have to get 40 coins, Danni only has to get 10 and that seems a little more fair. But the blue team only has 3 people that can compete, you’d think they get maybe just 30 but nope. White team, Danni, wins but the white team won last week too and they still lost at the weigh in….then she has to decide whether to take a 2 lb. advantage or call home…she takes the 2 lb. advantage, smart move.

    Last chance workout, Bob, “you want to see my head blow off my shoulders? walk” hahahaha gonna try to get that visual out of my head sooner than later.

    Weigh in, JACKSON PLEASE PULL UP your shorts! Geez. Blue team knocks it out of the box! Dang, Bob is hands down the most incredible motivator ever! They absolutely KILLED it BUT then you see Danni’s face as each one goes up and loses incredible poundage and she looks so dejected. Fortunately, she just had to beat the red teams percentage…..pins and needles…..she only had to lose 5 pounds NOT counting the 2 pound advantage…..SHE DOES IT, Jillian lives to see another week but Dolvett loses someone. This took me off guard, Jackson goes in and can only vote for one of the girls and he says, how hard it is to choose between his best friend/room mate (what?) and motivator. I know he’s gay but he’s rooming with a female? Did I hear that right? Anyway, Lisa gets sent home in the end and the red team is down to 3.

    @sunny – The Following is on Tuesday isn’t it?

  13. Sunnyside, you’re not crazy, Steve did have those two mixed up in his original spoiler (Catherine and Selma re: the rock climbing and ice castle dates) but corrected himself the day after the premiere. I haven’t looked but I’m sure he updated the spoilers.

    And thank you for not giving specific The Following spoilers. I didn’t watch it yet and will try to skip past any comments about it on here until I do. Glad to hear it sounds like episode 2 was just as good.

    While I do think Ben Taylor is a good singer (I looked up a few of his songs this AM because I was curious, especially after hearing who his parents are) I agree with Steve that Sade’s version of “By Your Side” is WAY better.

    Jovi, From what we have seen on camera, I’d definitely agree with you about Sean and Catherine. But knowing how this show works and how the producers decide what they want us and don’t want us to see, I’m assuming Sean and Catherine have had multiple other conversations- we just haven’t seen them yet. Hopefully there will be more to them on the ice castle date.

    BTW- I stopped using the “at” symbol before addressing people, because I noticed any time I used that, my comment would be awaiting moderation before being posted sometimes hours later. So I’ve found not putting it makes the probablity of my comment being posted right away greater.

    I thought this recap was way better than last week, mainly because I was thinking the same thing Steve was about the majority of the show. (except for I have zero issues with them showing Sean in his underwear!) :)

  14. re catherine: i think she is absolutely beautiful.. her smile can light up a room.. i also think lindsay is beautiful, ashlee, and desiree.. then again, i can find beauty in just about everyone with an attractive personality, at least..

  15. Hi Steve,
    Love love love the column – the producers are just plain mean this season – the roller derby date was painful to watch. I really felt bad for all of those girls. And… it goes along with sending Sarah over the side of the building and the “joke” they played with the art work. Very hard to watch!

  16. @ Sunnyside – I agree w\ you on Catherine’s looks. She’s cute but not as beautiful as Selma. I would also discribe Des as ‘cute’ with her round face and big brown eyes but Des is a lot more attractive then Catherine.

  17. @nora – could this be pertaining to the scene you are referring to? (straight from RS’ spoilers):

    Episode 6: Lake Louise, Canada (9 to 6)

    1-on-1: Catherine Giudici. Snow truck ride on a glacier followed by a night time visit to an ice castle. Catherine gets a rose.

    Group Date: Canoe on Lake Louise with Sarah, Selma, Daniella, Lindsay, Desiree, AshLee, and Tierra. Emergency medical teams are called into this date as well as shown on the previews, with Tierra getting medical for what looks like hypothermia. At some point during this group date, Sarah eliminates herself from the competition.

    1-on-1: Desiree Hartsock. Among other things, they rappel down a cliff. She gets a rose.

    Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Selma Alameri and Daniella McBride. There may be a chance that Daniella is actually eliminated before this rose ceremony, but whatever the case, she doesn’t make it past Canada as previously reported.

  18. I also found it hilarious what you said, Steve, about Robyn and all those chocolate things.

    But come ON with this comment: “immediately I was quite intrigued as to how in the world they were going to transform 8 lovely looking women into lesbians.” Newsflash: lesbians can be lovely looking, too. What was that?

  19. Catherine is so ridiculously bland, it’s annoying. Her looks are very underwhelming, but she only catches his interest because she’s easy to get into bed. Selma is so much prettier than Catherine, but I guess Catherine will put out easy cause she seems like a easy ho that is into the “beef cake”. Her own words.

  20. Steve why do you attack Selma. Just because she has a good body, beauty, and dresses sexy doesn’t mean she is obligated to put out and just kiss guys. That’s how the rape culture starts. Catherine is a ho who is trying to use sexual advances and innuendo to get Sean aka “beefcake” cause catherine loves her “beefcake” why not pick on her?

  21. Was anyone else embarrassed for Lesliee on the date when she chose her dress and said, “Winner, winner, chicken dinner!”? LOL!! I had to rewind that a few times. I bet when she was watching she felt dumb for saying that and the “holy batman” phrase!

  22. Wow…Selma is still really beautiful without makeup. Why does Catherine look so terrible without it? Like a man!

  23. Randais, The Following is on Monday nights at 9;00 on Fox Network…which I why The Bachelor is definitely not on my must see list. Well actually, was it ever? Definitely one of the best new shows. That and Revenge are on my must see list.

  24. Who are you to call somebody you don´t even know or have any knowledge of a hoe?! Repeatedly?!
    OR calling HER shallow while going on and on about her lack of prettiness(WHICH is completely BS anyway, she may be not your type ie. beautiful to you, but she IS an attractive girl)
    And comments like this go through moderation, awesome…. *Seriously, I am done with this site, It´s hella hurting especially when you know the person and know better
    ……oh and no, not the girls who are fake or bat-shit crazy are torn apart, no the great, genuine ones… I just hope Cath knows better than to take absolute BS like this seriously.

  25. Wow – as usual, on the basis of heavily edited snippets – snippets people – I’m reading overarching conclusions about particular women on the show. Come on – they are all very pretty. And, in terms of their personalities, we’re just seeing what the producers want us to see, and there’s a whole lot they aren’t showing us. On the basis of that, in particular re: Catherine – we’re seeing that she and Sean laugh a lot together (both by what they said last night and from an out-take a week or so ago where they were just giggling away for 5-10 seconds), we are led to believe that she is catty and kind of shallow – oneliners about Tiarra last night and at least once or twice before about I-don’t-remember-who, and the whole “like the beef” thing. But, then again, these are just little snippets, and could be a bit of wry dry humor on top of a deeply sensitive intelligent soul. Will we ever really know? Not likely. Even Tiarra – granted she is definitely high maintenance. But, she has got to have more going on than we’ll ever see. Remember how they made Amanda into an early villian, and even last night they showed her IM’s making her sound very devious, but again, who really knows. The other girls didn’t seem out to get here after that one episode. Editing people. Editing!

  26. Selma is totally hot, but her personality was quite bland, and she was a bit annoying on that date. It seriously detracted from her looks.

    As to Catherine, she is a fun girl with a bright personality. It adds to her looks.

    Its a whole package deal people. You need the personality to improve or add to the looks. Hot chicks that suck lose that hotness fast.

  27. @chloe – I’m sorry your friend has gotten bashed. I tried to address how bogus I think that is in my previous post. I don’t know a thing about her real character or personality, just what we’re shown on the show, but I’m glad she’s got you as a friend.

  28. And, while I’m at it (trifecta of comments – I have to get a LIFE), I don’t like the bashing of Tiarra or the sexualizing (by Steve) of Selma.

  29. ****gunmetalblack****
    We get it, you don’t like Catherine for some reason. But I don’t see her actions as being that of a “ho”. A flirt, maybe, but I’ve seen a lot worse “ho” stuff from other girls on this show. And for the record, I think she is pretty.

    ****reddla****
    “Fun bags? Is this better than milk utters? Why do I read this immature teenage boy crap?” – it isn’t like Steve doesn’t warn you about his immature teenage boy crap. His very own descrption of his blog is “My slanted, sophomoric, and skewed view on the world of reality television.” What do you think “sophomoric” means? So you answer your question: why DO you read this?

    ****Twitter****
    I made a comment last night that I am absolutely sure no one saw because I only have one follower (I’m a loser) and it went like this:
    @chrisbharrison @SeanLowe09 Tierra may be a pretty girl, but she is a damn ugly woman.

    Moving on now…..

  30. I’m not sure whether Steve has addressed this already but – what happened to Tierra’s forehead? It looks like a big dent. Is it a scar of some kind?

  31. Selma is a beautiful woman that does not put out, something rare nowadays, and of course the public will label this as “boring”. A woman with respect for herself, who is beautiful.

    On the other hand, we have Catherine with globs of makeup on to cover her lack of natural beauty, as well as a very basic, bland personality. She is not the “total” package, being called beefcake just has a whole bunch of innuendo attached to it, and after this makeout sesh in the dark this last episode, just going to see a whole lot of skankiness going down from her part that gets her to the end.

  32. If Selma made out with Sean, she would have been this season’s winner…EASILY. I don’t care what the media says that Sean is a “good guy”. He is still just that: A Man. In shows like these you need to be easy to a degree in order to win. Catherine is like a Courtney in her own way, there’s a lot of editing that has been cut out in their interactions maybe in light of public negative reaction to Courtney last season.

  33. Catherine is gorgeous! In my opinion prettier than selma. Selma is also very attractive n has nice body but catherine is beautiful. My 11-year-old thinks she’s hot. And calling her a ho or sayn she’s just easy 2 get in bed is so un-called for after seeing her in 4 episodes in which most she wasn’t even seen except glances and have only heard about 20 words come out of her mouth. There is a lot of time she’s spent with sean that they don’t air cuz sometimes it gives it away how into someone the lead is. They usually air vague n non-important interactions n shallow 4 entertainment n keep everyone guessing. U don’t know what she’s like. That’s a horrible thing 2 say about someone u don’t know

  34. Can you stop saying the same thing over and over again? We get it, you love Selma and you can’t stand Catherine. Geez, once is enough.

  35. ***Selma***
    Selma looks like a slutty version of Jamie-Lynn Sigler.
    I know everyone thinks that it is great that she has morals, but… IMHO i think that it is just her schtick to make an impression on Sean. One that will backfire obviously. I know a woman should be able to dress however she wants, but when you look like you are giving the milk away for free, and your not even letting them touch the container…that is what we call a tease. Sorry, but i am no longer a fan of Selma. Did she realize that she was going on the Bachelor? That it is the same every season? everyone fighting to get as much *face* time, pun intended, as possible?

  36. The best observation in this column is RS point about Leslie’s dress choices…I mean…she had nothing to work with and the one she chose was probably the worst. I think Sean just encouraged it because he was tired of watching her try on dresses. That thing wasn’t cute or flattering at all.
    I am also blown away by the people who already love or hate Catherine (other than her actual real life friend). The truth is they have given us nothing to go off of. She is pretty and seems to make him laugh a lot. That is what makes me so mad! I feel like the producers are really messing up by giving us so little of the contestants personalities this season. I feel like all we’ve gotten is Ashlee is serious and mature, Sarah only has one arm and wants to be confident about is but is actually really insecure about it, Desiree is awesome and a dead ringer for Katie Holmes, and Tierra is psychotic and for some reason they are showing us a lot of Robyn.
    I want to get to know the final four and hear about their kids and divorces and plethora of neuroses. Not to mention the contrived romance.

  37. I am sorry, but are we even watching the same show?! Cath is like Courtney?…
    Oh and don´t you brother sweet-talking you don´t even have the balls to own up to a repeated statement of yours. I dearly hope you are in some way intoxicated or a horny 15 year old,who saw boobs and came to defend it, otherwise your behavior (or the way you express yourself at least) is just something to be ashamed of even more.

  38. @sunny – Poop. Missed it again :\. Why did I think it was on Tues? No idea, but I’ll get it right next week. Like you, I don’t “really” watch the Bachelor either, ahahhaaa, go figure. I did accidentally catch some of the beginning of last nights, before I remembered to change the channel to The Biggest Loser. What I saw, with Selma, seemed extremely contradictory to me. She portrays herself one way but acts another….whatever, stupid show anyway. I don’t agree with too much RS says, but I did agree with that.

    Need to pull up The Following and catch up…again.

  39. Not really LOL^^ I got Freedom of speech, you must be very attached to this television show in your little two dimensional reality of trying to say your opinions of other people that are NOT on the show. I am talking about the show, not you. You aren’t on the Bachelor which is what this blog is talking about, bright one. So no, nothing to be ashamed of for going against popular opinion :)

  40. wow.. some of you guys are extremely critical of the
    girls’ appearances.. calling catherine ugly? really? wow.

    punka, u hit the nail on the head with your comment.. good to know there are still some decent people in the world who judge beauty based on a variety of factors. the superficial world we live in never seizes to amaze me.. sad.

  41. I’m shocked by any negativity directed toward Catherine! Are we all watching the same show here? She is adorable, not to mention exotically beautiful. From what they have shown of her personality, especially in those fun moments with Sean last night, they seem like a great match!

    Chloe, PLEASE ignore the ridiculous comments on here. I hope you will take away that normal women enjoy the refreshing nature of your friend and look forward to watching her love story with Sean play out. I for one am excited that they have been slow to reveal their connection; it was all of a sudden apparent last night that he thinks she is adorable too.

    As for Selma, the way she portrayed herself isn’t my cup of tea, but there is no denying she is incredibly gorgeous! In fact I think the majority of Sean’s women are beautiful.

  42. I agree with the above commenter. Gunmetals, I agree Catherine is shallow…Catherine looks like someone who goes into fits of something and someone has to shake her to get out of the trance.

    But I doubt he is looking for wife material, just someone he can be with temporarily and not have to marry. Just like I doubt Ben planned on every marrying Courtney last season.

  43. Just curious, gunmetalblack, why it’s okay for you to say whatever you want about Catherine, but others can’t do the same about Selma?

  44. I definitely noticed how Catherine puts on heavy makeup as well. this show is all staged and it is highly edited. It is ironic how this same episode was the highest rated episode of the season as well.

  45. Selma is the BEST girl in the house because:

    1) She’s GORGEOUS
    2) She has good values
    3) She LOVES to cook

    She would make the perfect wife for any man. Too bad SEAN will not pick her. His LOSS.
