I don’t know why this struck me as odd the other day, but it did. There have been 17 “Bachelor” seasons, using 16 different bachelors. Brad obviously was used twice. Do you realize of those 17, and if you count Brad both times, that 8 of the 17 had four letter first names? Sean, Jake, Brad, Brad, Alex, Andy (Baldwin), Andy (Firestone), and Matt. I’m a huge math guy. I run numbers all day long in my end, I love everything to do with math and solving math problems. So for my sake, can the “Bachelor” please make Drew the next “Bachelor” so we can have exactly 50% of them with four letter first names? (9 out of 18). Stuff like that makes me want to get up in the morning. Hated geometry, loved algebra. Go figure.
I can’t believe I didn’t even address the return of Nate Hartsock next week in Tuesday’s column. Awwwww, we missed America’s favorite gangsta brother. Will be good to see you again, Nate. For those asking, no, he doesn’t meet any of the four guys next week when he shows up at the hotel talking to Des. Sure, the promos had him standing behind a wall looking like a creeper ready to shank one of these guys, but alas, it doesn’t happen. He just shows up, talks to Des, and doesn’t meet anyone. He won’t meet anyone until they have the “Meet the Family” dates in Antigua.
I finally was able to get that video of me giving Olivia her Selena Gomez tickets from back in May up on YouTube. She had no clue what she was getting. Here you go:
I’m not sure what’s more amusing about this video: Olivia almost passing out (when she gets that excited cry, she starts to lose her breath, yet we had no clue that’s what was happening when she was tapping her feet. We thought that was excitement), Nicholas asking her if those are “tears of joy,” or Nicholas handcuffing himself and not knowing where the key was. Even though the concert isn’t for another 5 months, do you know how many times I heard “When you’re ready come and get it, na na na na, na na na na, na na na na…” this past weekend? And oh yeah, the choreographed dance she has to go along with it? More than you can imagine.
Here’s a link to an interview I did with the Huffington Post regarding reality TV in general. I’m just glad I got to share space with Brande Roderick, since she is on my list. You know, that list. The one I’ve made of the people that I want to interview once the “Bachelorette” ends. Gonna try something new this offseason.
