A few of you have asked me about next week’s column, and since the “Bachelor” is running back-to-back new episodes on consecutive nights, if I’m just gonna have a column up on Wednesday that combines both episodes, or if I’ll do a recap for each. I’m definitely doing a recap for each. First time they’ve ever done a Mon-Tues back-to-back thing, and they’ve really given no explanation as to why. I’m not sure either, but whatever. It’s not a big deal to me. At some point this season, one of these episodes was getting pushed to another day because they had 11 episodes for the season, but only 10 Mondays between Jan. 7th and March 11th. So maybe it was bad planning on their part, maybe they thought they had an extra Monday but didn’t, maybe they had originally planned to go with the WTA on a Sunday, with the finale the next night like they’ve done in the past, I don’t know. But after next week, looks to me like the schedule is back on track and the rest of the season will play out on Monday nights, with the finale and “After the Final Rose” airing March 11th.
A few of you have asked me what “Burning Love” is recently, and where can you watch season 1. It was a web series started last year that’s basically the best parody of the “Bachelor” that you’ll find out there. There were about nine or ten 8-9 minute episodes that only aired on the web, which made fun of the “Bachelor” franchise, but used cameos from some well known actors. Very funny stuff. It was announced the other day that the E! channel is actually going to air season 1 in its entirety starting next month. Season 2 starts on Valentines Day online, but on the 25th, you can see the episodes on the E! channel if you want to get caught up. If you watch the “Bachelor” franchise for pure hilarity and ridiculousness like you should, then you’ll love “Burning Love.”
The deleted scenes from Monday’s “Bachelor” were released yesterday. This week we get three of them, and they all surround Sean’s extra time with some of the girls that they didn’t show. And before the emails start flooding in, yes, I’m aware that Selma’s video that I’ve posted in my last two columns has been taken down. Obviously, she’s either embarrassed by the attention it’s getting, or ABC told her to remove it, or what not, but it’s gone. No worries, we can now watch more awkward non-kissing with Selma and Sean from the cocktail party! Man, you thought watching these two not kiss each other in the desert was cringe worthy, tell me he didn’t resort to butterfly kisses and rubbing noses? Yep. He did. Your man card is revoked Sean.
Lesley had pretty much zero air time on Monday because she wasn’t on any of the dates. But apparently that didn’t stop her from running out to KFC for honey glazed fried chicken. I was stunned that Sean’s body didn’t start convulsing and bleed internally after eating such crap food. Lets hope he’s ok.
And, well…you think AshLee’s trying a bit too hard and acting a bit too desperate here? Naaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww…
