“Reader Emails,” More Trivia, & Some Thoughts on Idol

March 7th, 2013 | 55 Comments | Posted in Reader Emails, The Bachelor 17 - Sean

Only 4 more days away from the finale. Four more days until I’m vindicated from my spoiler posted back in November. Not that this season many have doubted it, but it’s nice to finally have it play out. I think more in the beginning of the season there might have been some doubt because of how little camera time Catherine got, but all in all, people have come to accept that pretty much 95% of the spoilers that I post on this site are going to end up being right. Sure, there are things I don’t know. I don’t know every single square inch detail of every single season. I just post what I know based on what I’m told, and outside of a few exceptions, for three years, it’s all been right. If someone wants to harp on the times I’ve been wrong, let them. Just proves they’re reading every single word I write and are praying that I’m wrong, yet, none of those people ever say a word when the spoilers are right, which is why I just laugh at people like that. I’ve been waiting for March 11th since Nov. 26th. Man, that’s a long time. Good thing it’s almost here.

So as for Tuesday’s column, remember, it won’t be a regular column recapping every scene from the finale, since not much goes on. I’ll give an overview of the episode, along with an overview of the whole season, then my thoughts on anything interesting that happens at the live ATFR. And oh yeah, maybe I’ll remind everyone that before you saw anything more than just a bio picture of Catherine, before you even saw the first promo of this season, and before you even saw one second of footage between Sean and Catherine interacting, I had told you he was engaged to her. Which is exactly what you’ll see come Monday. It sure is fun being right. Also in Tuesday’s column, I will reveal the first few contestants for Desiree’s season. Not sure how many I’m gonna release, but I definitely will release some, since I’ve been working on the “Bachelorette” season for the last month or so.

Yesterday I updated you on what were the top three easiest and hardest questions so far in the Reality Steve trivia game, and today I’m gonna tell you which question has fallen right in the middle. The question that has been answered correctly just as many times as it has been answered wrong. And this is about as close as it gets:

“Which girl got a fireworks show on top of the Aria hotel during Brad’s second season?” As of this morning, that question has been answered correctly 1,017 times, and been missed 1,017 times. Crazy. The answer is Shawntel.

Coming in a close second is, “What contestant during Brad’s second season did he sing ‘Kiss From a Rose’ with?” It’s been answered correctly 1,013 times, and been missed 1,016 times. The answer is Ashley Spivey.

And finally, can I just say for the record that “Idol” needs to dump the “We need 5 guys and 5 girls in the Top 10″ this season? Man, they really pinned themselves in a corner with that rule considering there should be about 8 girls in the Top 10 and about 2-3 guys that are deserving. Sucks. And I just want to say for the record that if Zoanette is voted through to the live shows tonight, I have lost all hope for society. Same goes for Charlie. Enough of their side show acts. Charlie should’ve never even made the Vegas round in the first place, and that was strictly the judges call. He was put through as a novelty act and then got completely embarrassed last night because of it. And if anyone thinks that is a normal, well adjusted kid I’ve got some land to sell you. They exploited him and it all came crashing down last night. Brutal. I’ll give more thoughts on “Idol” as the season goes on, but just wanted to throw that in there before tonight’s Top 10 is announced. And yes, even though the press release said at the beginning of the season there would be no wildcards this season and the live shows would consist of 5 guys and 5 girls, I fully expect them to change that rule tonight and throw in at least 1, if not 2, wild cards.

  1. I noticed it too iheartvino – and thought to myself “what a douche bag Chris Harrison is” – he also asked Lindsay TWICE to “take me back” to when Sean dumped you and she was trying to sort of dodge the question but good ‘ol Chris kept pumping for info. How the hell should she feel? I felt sorry for her – mainly because she seemed not to even remember that Catherine was still in the picture, while Catherine knew that he had feelings for Lindsay, too. Lindsay just kept saying “this was the best day of her life” and she was going to get engaged – she actedl like she never had a clue that he wasn’t going to pick her. So I kinda felt a little sorry for her. But she should have known she had a 50/50 chance!!

  2. Yes – I too had to rewind when Chris said Catherine and not Lindsay! I thought there’s no way he said that… but he sure did! I’m looking forward to see what Steve has to say about last night!

  3. Ok everyone I watched the some of the ending and the atfr, I did hear Chris Harrison drop the C bomb in that context, Iheart. Strange.

    Now moving on to the next post and all the self back slapping, self congratulatory chest thumping, fist pumping and boasting that’s pretty much a given :D . Here we go…

  4. Uh oh, the first guy looks like a mormon. The history there hasn’t been too good.

  5. @lobsterandbeer, I remember what you’re talking about now! Yes, I did say that chick wasn’t very smart, but that wasn’t a matter of opinion. It was obvious. Also, I would never point out someone’s grammar or spelling errors just out of the blue to be a bully b/c it’s a hobby or something. Trust me, I would be doing that much more often if I just wanted to be a b*tch for sport. I said that about that particular person b/c she was being an a**hole toward Asians & I didn’t think it was right. That led me to nitpick her other flaws. Sorry, I was having a bad day & I dislike bigots very much- as we all should. You were quite the bully yourself that day, so go ahead & remove the halo now.
