The Bachelor Sean Recap & Clarifications on Tierra News

February 6th, 2013 | 67 Comments | Posted in The Bachelor 17 - Sean

Before I get to today’s recap where I openly question Tierra’s antics in Canada (just like Sean and Chris Harrison do in their blogs today along with every other girl in the house), I do want to set the record straight on a couple of things to just show she’s not completely the devil. As for yesterday’s post regarding the ring she’s wearing on her left ring finger that she posted on Instagram, I can confirm that she’s not engaged. I have no idea where she got the ring, if the ring is even hers, or why the hell she’s taking pictures of herself with a ring on and posting them publicly for everyone to see, but it’s not because she’s engaged. Just looks like she is someone that is running with her “villain” edit and eating up all the attention the show is giving her. She obviously wants attention drawn to herself, because why else would you post vague photos of a big, fat rock on your left ring finger if you weren’t engaged?

Also, after Monday’s night’s episode, a few of you questioned the story she told Sean about her ex-boyfriend who died because, well, by everything she’s done this season, she hasn’t earned anyone’s respect to take her at her word for anything. Hell, even I questioned it. However, I can confirm that story is legit and it’s actually my mistake for not remembering it. I said in Tuesday’s column I didn’t know if she was telling the truth or not, when in reality, I was told about that ex-boyfriend and even referenced it in a post on Oct. 25th. But since it was three months ago, when she was telling the story Monday night, I’d completely forgotten about what I was told back then. Here’s what I wrote:

“Plenty of “Bachelor”-related stuff to get to, starting with what’s happening down in St. Croix. If you missed Tuesday’s post, scroll down past this one as it’s the next post on this page and you’ll see Sean’s date with Tierra LiCausi. I’d completely forgotten to add her to the “Sean’s Girls” link, but if you need to know more about her, you can read WetPaint.com’s profile of her, or just go to ABC’s “Bachelor” page to see her headshot and mini bio. One thing to correct in their bio is that Tierra doesn’t live in CA. Don’t know where they got that. She works and lives in Colorado and is in the real estate business. There’s a very sentimental reason as to why she named her dog Reese as well. Curious to see if it gets brought up on the show. Not my place to bring it up but it’s out there on Google if you’re interested in searching for yourself.”

You can do a Google search if you want to find out who this guy is, but her dogs name is Reese because it’s her ex-boyfriends last name. Not hard to find, but if you’re interested, you can Google keywords and it’ll come right up and you can read his story.

Interested to hear more former contestants talking about producer tactics behind-the-scenes, you can read and watch this interview that Doug Clerget did locally in Seattle that appeared yesterday.

None of this should come as a surprise to any of you if you read my column with any regularity, but sometimes I think because only I say it, you may think it comes from a biased point of view. But when you hear a contestant with first hand knowledge explain what I’ve been telling you for a while now, it adds credibility and shows you the level that the sick producers of this show stoop to just to get a reaction out of contestants. This wasn’t the first time they went to the “dead relative” card, and certainly won’t be the last.

One final note, Sean will be making a series of appearances for the Southern Women’s Show Series over the next few months. Here’s how it’s been described to me, followed by the dates and locations he’ll be in attendance:

“The Southern Women’s Show series consists of 10 annual consumer events across the eastern US that focus on fashion, food, health, home, business, travel and entertainment. It is essentially a women’s lifestyle magazine brought to life. Each show runs 3-4 days in the market over a weekend. Their target demographic are women aged 25-54 who are usually the decision makers in their home. They come to shop and sample new products and learn about new businesses. Their official automotive sponsor this season is Chevrolet and they will have The Balancing Act of Lifetime Television at each show this spring except for Richmond, VA.”

Savannah, GA, Savannah Intl. Trade & Convention Center – Friday, Feb. 15 @ 1:30
Memphis, TN, Agricenter – Friday, Mar. 10 @ 2:00
Nashville, TN, Nashville Convention Center – Friday, April 19 @ TBD
Richmond, VA, Richmond Raceway Complex – Sunday, April 21 @ TBD
Raleigh, NC, NC State Fairgrounds – Sunday, April 28 @ TBD
Novi, MI, Suburban Collection Showplace – Friday, May 3 @ TBD

Sean will do a 30-60 minute Q&A session at each show and then sign autographs and take pictures with show guests. On to last night. As always, this column will contain spoilers.

  1. For all of those that are blaming Sean for the way Sarah was eliminated, think about it for a minute. Sean had absolutely NO SAY on how Sarah was sent packing. It’s 100% the producers who stage this kind of thing, and always have. They played the poor girl up for everyone to feel sorry for her because of her missing limb. That got old and boring, so off she went. Same deal goes for Tierra..her antics are now so predictable, and the producers figure her 15 minutes are up, so bye, bye, Tierra.

  2. I’m sure SR doesn’t consider Canadians freaks…unless he means freakishly nice, freakishly good looking :) In those cases, he’s right. Moving on…I actually feel uncomfortable watching Ashlee’s scenes. She has some serious issues…which given her history makes perfect sense, but hashing them out on The Bachelor? Bad choice. Oh, I do tire of Lindsay. She’s a teacher? Yikes! She hasn’t said one interesting thing or had one interesting moment on the show. If she is The Bachelorette I’m not watching. Des on the other hand is great…very likeable. Yep, poor Lesley. That was a terrible break up….awful to watch. I kind of understand why he did it that way. It was likely bothering him. He wanted to get it over with, and not sit through an awkward per-rose ceremony conversation. But still – awful. And, pease, please could they show us a little more of Catherine!

  3. Dianne – bwahahahhaah I almost fell off the bed with that last comment! Good one.

    Peeps and anyone else defending Ms. Selma via “do you know the back story” – Really? A back story to why/where/when she took off her top for a video, could excuse it or change the fact that she STILL appears hypocritical? I will never understand that rationale. I don’t know her or what’s in her heart and don’t begin to suggest that I do, BUT I DO know how she “appears” based on what she has done and has been put out there for EVERYone to see. That’s the ONLY thing we have to go off of. It’s not rocket science, it’s common sense. I’m not suggesting she’s not a “nice” person, I think many hypocrites can be very nice people, or has a “good” heart. I just think the term hypocrite, in this instance, means she is sending two different messages, that’s all.

    Having said all that and slightly changing the subject, I would have NEVER jumped into that freezing water either no matter if it sent me home or not. In my opinion, if it DID send me home, that would tell me, without question, he was NOT the man for me.

  4. I’m a girl, and I really like Lindsay. Not huge on Des, she seems boring. *Shrug*. Now, when I say “like”, I mean like for a lead. I didn’t want Sean for a lead, and lo and behold, this is the most bored I have ever been watching this franchise. Thank God for some of the girls I like (Lesley and Lindsay are my faves). I think Lindsay would be funny and entertaining, two things Sean and Emily were NOT.

    As for the ring thing, I think that it’s sloppy editing, but I think it was filmed when they said it was.

    And cheryl, did you mean Poor Sarah? Lesley is still on the show! And I thought it was rude what Sean did too.

  5. And Dianne, all we are told this season is how everything is Sean’s choice. If he can give roses out to whoever the hell he feels like on the first night, you honestly think he can’t refuse to embarrass Sarah? Of course he could’ve. He just is dumb enough to think he was doing the respectful thing. He embarrassed both Sarah and Kacie, and his muscles-for-brain is too slow to realize it.

  6. Daniella didn’t get a 1-1 date because Sean already knew he was going to send her home. But he was going to let her wait until the rose ceremony. It is really cruel the way he eliminated Sarah. I wouldn’t put it past the producers forcing it, but I also wouldn’t put it past Sean either.

    When I saw the ring on Catherine’s wedding finger I thought it might be a family heirloom because it seemed to have a wedding ring attached to the engagement ring. It didn’t look impressive enough to be a ring from the show though.

    I noticed Des packed the exact same red and black suitcase that Sarah did. Must have been given to every girl who made it that far.

    One last thought… I think Sean and Catherine would make a good couple now that we’ve gotten to see a few minutes of them together. He doesn’t seem to want a serious person. Kind of surprised he doesn’t eliminate AshLee sooner.

  7. I will miss Selma for her snarky comments. She had a gem during the cocktail party that I haven’t seen mentioned in any blogs. Talking to Lesley and Des about Tierra: “Let’s be honest. You’re going to WIFE that?!??”. Sure it was mean, but it made me laugh. There’s a deleted scene that Steve may post in today’s column that pretty much shows why Sean eliminated her. But for some unknown reason, the producers decided not to include it in the show. Who knows anymore.

  8. Megabird, honey, you just keep on thinking the way you’re thinking. But, you have to realize, Sean is paid to be there, and is under contract to be there, and that leads me to belive that he has to do what he’s told to do, not vice-versa. But hey, that’s only my opinion.

  9. I can’t help but think of one more thing, after reading everyone bashing everyone on the show (and me too), but it seems to me, this ALWAYS happens. No matter who the bach/ette is, since we’ve ALL met whoever it is previously, they ALWAYS appear to morph when taken out of a competitive role and placed in a control role. EVERY single one of them. I have been disappointed in the lead, going from one role to the other, EVERY SINGLE SEASON. They turn into clueless, thinking with their crotch, hypocritical idiots. So why are we surprised? I’m not, it’s the same thing every season, time for us to just accept it and carry on.

  10. Hey, Steve, big fan. Women put perfume on their wrists and their necks because they are “pulse points” where your blood vessels are closest to the skin, thus the hottest (temperature) areas. Because these areas are warm, the smell reignites when activity happens. Also, my mom said you should always wear perfume a little higher on your neck, so when a man kisses it, it smells wonderful, but doesn’t taste like rubbing alcohol. Love the column.

  11. Dianne – I feel the same. Producers want/need for certain things to happen. There is no way they’re going to send the resident b#tch home when she’s the person everyone talks, writes, blogs about. Is it a coincidence that Sean, just like many bachelors before him, keeps an obviously obnoxious personality around, even after being told straight out by other women that he needs to know the truth? The drama queen makes the show….without one of those, it’d be boring.

  12. cheryl1– Yes, you get the names mixed up. Like when you said, Lindsay. She’s a teacher? Yikes! I’m sure you meant, Ashley Hebert. She’s a dentist? Yikes!

  13. @Athena – thank you! And yes, great point about people changing, etc. I mean, these women are still so young! I agree the topless video of Selma was a bit strange but we really don’t know the backstory behind it and whether it was even released, etc. Just have a bit of a beef with people writing posts authoritatively about others cultures when they obviously don’t understand just how complex culture is.

  14. Of course this show is produced but I an hardly believe you would put merit in anything that Doug character had to say. It’s called saving face.

  15. @jillbeau about Selma: you’re right, that was a “good” snarky comment she made during the cocktail party, and thanks for the video clip. I don’t know why they didn’t show it either. Granted, she wasn’t very smooth when she called the other girls “idiots” for taking the plunge by not realizing that Sean was one of the “idiots” too. But, I thought what was most telling is how put upon he seemed by her comment. It’s ok for him to expect all of the girls to do his (producers) bidding, but not ok for Selma to say “no thank you”. Seemed arrogant to me. Guess it’s good she went home – it was definitely not going to be a match made in heaven for those two.
