The Bachelor Sean Finale Recap Including Your First Look at Some of Desiree’s Guys (EXCLUSIVE)

With the season now over, and the “Bachelorette” not premiering until May 20th, I highly doubt you’ll see me posting three times a week for the next couple months. This week, I’m combining “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” and will post on Thursday. After that, it’s a crap shoot when the next column happens. This is usually where I take a bit of break. Mostly because the emails aren’t coming in at a furious pace, nor are the “Dr. Reality Steve” emails. So those columns will probably be combined and posted once every couple weeks. The one thing I will continue to do for the next two months is post once any “Bachelorette” news happens. Guys started arriving yesterday, and some are arriving today, which tells me that filming is probably being pushed up a couple days. Originally filming was supposed to start this Sunday the 17th, but with guys already in LA, there’s no way they’re gonna make them wait for 5 days since they never have. It never takes that long to shoot ITM’s and bio photos, so my guess is that filming is going to begin Friday night. Anytime I have more contestants confirmed, or photos/info from dates being filmed, you will be updated during the next couple months. I just never know when or how often that’ll be. You will always be updated by following me on Twitter or my Facebook Fan Page, so you’ll definitely know when I have new information posted.

As for where they are traveling for Des’ season, I think I have an idea where they are headed after LA, but haven’t gotten it 100% confirmed. Hopefully I’ll get it within the next couple weeks, and if not, I’ll tell you where I was originally told they were headed. From what I was told, they are definitely headed overseas again, and I’m pretty positive about one of the locations. Just waiting on some of the other ones.

Also, one of the other worst kept secrets of late was made official this morning when Sean announced on “Good Morning America” that he’ll be on “Dancing with the Stars” and Peta is his partner. Watch out, Catherine. That Peta is daaaaaaaaamn sexy. But then again, Sean seems to hate all blondes, so, maybe you really don’t have anything to worry about.

A couple links:

-FoxNews.com gave a little coverage yesterday to the lawsuit before the finale. I’d say that’s pretty accurate. My stance hasn’t changed in four months. I’ve done nothing wrong, their allegations against me contain no facts, and they haven’t offered a single bit of evidence to support their claims. I will continue to do what I do, which is spoil their season before it airs, and I will continue to do it without violating my Settlement Agreement with them. I did it this season, and I’ll do it again next season. And the season after that. And so on.

-Leslie Hughes from Sean’s season gave an interview to the DailyBeast.com about her time on the show. I think my favorite point of hers was #7. Really? No way! Does that include yourself?

And in case you missed it on Friday, here is “Burning Love” Episode 9. Great stuff, yet again.

  1. As if ABC/Fleiss isn’t tacky enough, they did themselves one better by choosing THE ugliest silver & gold gowns for Lindsey & Catherine to wear. Second and first place?

    And I’m guessing the girls are asked during their audition if they were chosen as the “final”, what type of ring would they prefer. It’s quite possible a few chose a cushion cut.

  2. @ Dianne – I think I remember Steve saying that once you are the in the final 2 you are taken out shopping for a dress to wear to the final rose?

  3. Ok…Desiree was not my first choice (I’d rather it was Lesley) but it doesn’t really matter! As long as the rest of the guys are similar to these, then I’ll be watching!!

  4. If anyone’s interested- Here is Shay’s (Sean’s sister) blog about the finale and their family’s trip to Thailand.

    She mentioned that Sean and Cassie stayed in the same house. I do find that a little odd, you’d think that they’d give a male lead a male producer to stay with instead of Cassie but then again this is the Bachelor franchise we’re talking about so I guess it’s no surprise.

  5. I love des’s lineup of guys so far just wish they wouldn’t choose actors and choose more hometown guys with normal lives!!!

  6. I am so glad to hear Zak Waddell from Dallas made the cut! I went to high school with the kid and he’s posted a few things about flying back and forth for interviews. Awesome – he is a super sweet guy. Way to represent SGP!

  7. LOL @ first and second place! It kind of irritated me that their dresses were too similar!

    And about Cassie staying with Sean – she is married to another producer on the show… he may have stayed in the house too.

  8. @Cow – “more hometown guys with normal lives”, there is NOTHING normal about this whole process why in the world would they ever consider going with “normal” guys?

    **The Following**
    Honestly, this weeks episode, had me rethinking my attraction to this show. I know, I have been one of the hardcore fans but the gore is really starting to get to me….it’s so over the top.

  9. RS hit the nail on the head about the final two dates. Poor Lindsay! That river was nasty. Should have been a clue to Lindsay that she wouldn’t be “the one”.

    And could that proposal set have been any tackier? I thought nothing could be worse than what they rigged up for Emily/Jef, I was wrong.

  10. I’m guessing that they don’t ask the contestants what kind of ring-style they’d prefer. I seem to recall one season where the bach chose one style but his gal was wearing something totally different at the reunion. Dont know how they swung that…

  11. How do I email Steve my question?

    During the proposal, the Neil Lane mark is shown. However, during the replay of the proposal, the ring box is shown without the Neil Lane mark. Why? Did Neil not pay enough $.

  12. thedoctor…editing was really off this season. There’s a contact me button at the top of this page.

    *AI*
    After AI last night, I think I want an Angie/Candice finale!

    Nikki is SO weird. What was the deal with her being so late? It seemed a little awkward for them.

    Keith Urban is a gorgeous man!

    Some of these AI kids REALLY have sparkle!!!!

    Catherine not as into Sean? Have you **seen** Sean?? He’s way too cute and adorable – of course she’s totally into him and must be thanking her lucky stars.”

    First of all, Diane, thank you. I thought I was the only one who thought those dresses were 80′s tacky and ill-fitting. Especially Lindsay’s.

    Now to @LisaLisa. Yes, I have “seen Sean” and I tried to get it… I really did, but physically all I see is a dork trying to be “beefy.”

    I watched the playback of Sean and Lindsay, then Sean and Catherine sitting side by side on ATFR. The Sean and Lindsay pairing ‘looks’ way more like they belong together. And Frankly, intellectually, I think they’re a better fit as well. They’re both missing ‘polish.’ I think Sean chose what he thought he was missing from himself instead of the ‘like me’ persona that is Lindsay.

  14. @JovisMom – if that’s the case, then both girls have HORRID taste. Seem a bit too much of a coincidence that they would both pick shimmer/glitter ugly dresses that did not fit either of them properly, therfore, being very, very uncomplimentary.

    @jacey – I know!! I was just waiting for a disco-ball to lower down out of one of those strange looking trees!

  15. Gotta chime in on the final 2 dresses. Really tacky and darn right ugly. But frankly, the girls get to pick their dress and both of these ladies don’t impress me as having much brain matter.

    As for Sean…never was impressed with the beefcake look to him and that goofy grin whenever he is asked to take his shirt off. I’m so done with him. His hair is nearly gone, his intelligence level is suspect and never will I ever stop saying yuk as he does the nose to nose sucking of the girl’s upper lip. I’d slap him if he was my date and show him how to tilt his head, open his mouth slightly and affix his lips to BOTH lips on the girl. He is beyond horrible and spending a life time with that lip sucking would do me in.

    I don’t think Catherine is all that gaga about him other than his body. Just saw a strange ibe watching them together and it reminded me of Emily with Brad on the After show. I don’t wish any of these made for TV couples failure, but ABC pushing for a televised wedding and all, will place much pressure on them.

    As to The Following…yeh the gore is getting a bit much, but I do bet that cults exist and weird crap goes down with them.

    As to Idol: a final with Kree, Angie, Candice would be awesome and I’d probably pick Kree. Love her lots but feel pretty much the same for the others. I think Janelle is beyond adorable, but just don’t feel she can make it to the end.

    As for the guys…maybe Curtis and the one with the redish hair (name escapes me). Love Lazaro so much, but if going with best singers and not this sweet young man’s back story, I’d say he won’t win.

  16. @ JovisMom and Sunnyside..since the girls get to choose their dress for the “final”, I’m guessing, by the looks of these two dresses, the pickin’s were pretty slim!

  17. “As to The Following…yeh the gore is getting a bit much, but I do bet that cults exist and weird crap goes down with them.”

    Yeah, and that whole underlying not-so-subtle suggestion that Joe Carroll’s knife going into that guy accompanied with the looks on both men’s faces was some sort of analogous ‘penis’ was all more than a little disturbing. Not the fact that it was two men, but the coupling of ‘sex’ with violence. Anybody else pick up on that?

  18. Anyone else looking forward to the premiere of “Ready For Love”? I’ve been watching the previews of this for months and they’ve changed the premiere date 3 times. Right now, it’s set for 4/9 and I’m hoping it sticks because this looks to have some promise.

    **Survivor**
    Holy melt down Brandon!
    He’s constantly doing about faces the whole episode, first he’s all aggressive then he’s all apologetic. He scares the bejesus out of his tribe mates when he goes postal (excuse the reference) and dumps their rice and bean rations. Even though the favs win the reward challenge, again, they are all riding the Brandon roller coaster and it’s taking a toll.

    Meanwhile, back at the Fan’s campsite, Reynold is scrambling after pulling out and using his immunity idol at tribal and EVERYone else is scrambling to keep him from finding the idol a second time. They return from the reward challenge as losers and the weather isn’t helping when it storms/rains for 48 hours straight, I think we can safely say, they are beyond dejected. While everyone is searching for the rehidden idol desperately trying to keep it away from Reynold, guess who finds it…..Reynold.

    The favs have just about had their fill of bipolar (no offense) Brandon though. He goes off on Phillip then apologizes then goes off again. By the time they arrive at the immunity challenge, they’ve decided to forfeit the challenge and go to tribal to vote him out. Jeff obliges, by holding a vocal vote as they stand there and while the other tribe is also, standing there watching. Brandon votes off Phillip and the rest of the tribe sends Brandon packing.

    The previews have me suspecting a change up next week, but we’ll see.

  19. @jacey – YES! It’s pushing my tolerance of violence as fictionalized as it may or may not be. I’m finding myself not being able to stomach many of the scenes, more and more. I’m not completely done yet, but I’m finding it not as much thrilling and repulsive.

    **Idol**
    What the heck is with Nikki? She’s strange.
    I love all the finalists. @ sunny, Devin, the red head. He’s talented for sure. I like Kree too, Angie, Amber, Candice….ok ok they’re all stellar!

    The Voice premiere’s on the 25th!

  20. Remember on the ATFR for Ashley and JP, Ashley’s sister was there and talked about how she was supportive now of JP, etc etc? I was half expecting a similar thing with Catherine’s sisters or maybe her mom who was reluctant to give Sean her “blessing.” They were no where in sight at the ATFR. Makes me wonder if they are still not on-board with the whole thing. Who knows. Maybe the plan is to make that “storyline” part of the wedding special. If it happens….

  21. Randais: yes thanks…Devin…could not remember his name, but agree he is very good.

    Have not been watching Survivor (as I usually do On Demand) cause I watch Idol and am ust not interested in the Favs vs.Fans thing.

    I see that..when Joe Carrol stabbed Charlie..the look on both faces could resemble pleasure. And the show has been picked up for a second season…according to tabloids. I so want it to be a one on one with Ryan and Joe…with Ryan disposing of Joe!

    Nicki is beyond strange and frankly stupid in her commentary! Hopefully she will be replaced next season. Love Keith…what a sweet cutie pie. Nicole is one lucky lady to have a real man after Cruise! Mariah seems very sincere and normal with her helpful comments. Randy is Randy and I have no issues with him. BEGONE NICKI! These kids are fortunate Simon is long gone or he’d have destroyed some of their egos and confidence.

  22. Ok… I just want to punctuate for all you AshLee bashers — You know. Those of you with all the “cray-cray” comments and such regarding AshLee’s ‘come to Jesus’ confrontation with Sean?? — that Sean “said the same thing to Lindsay” according to Selma (See Youtube On-Air radio Interview) on RS blog.

    Oh, and while I’m on the subject, please stop trying to make “cray cray” happen. lol It’s stupid.

  23. im extremely happy for sean and catherine, and i thought this was probably the sweetest “proposal” since ashley and jp.. catherine’s reaction was so genuine, and i thought both ladies looked gorgeous.. the odds are against them, but i wish these 2 the best of luck!

  24. Lindsay’s silver dress looked horrible on her- it made her look like she didn’t have a waist. Fashion Police no likey :)

    In terms of Lindsay possibly being the better fit for him- I believe that he had a thing for her, even on the ATFR- did you notice how he checked her out, and kept checking her out when they were seated next to each other on stage? I mean checking out her body and what she was wearing, including the sheer panel in the front of her dress. There was some interest there from him. Anyone else notice this?
