“Bachelor” Filming Notes, 3 More of Juan Pablo’s Girls, and “Daily Links”

In response to my tweet Monday night in regards to the “Voice” not the least bit deserving of the Emmy for “Best Reality Show,” here are my thoughts. Of course it’s all a matter of opinion. Some people love the “Voice,” some people hate the “Voice,” some people are neutral. Just like they are about “Idol,” “X Factor,” “DWTS,” cats, dogs, the President and everything known to mankind. Nothing is universally liked in this world. Nothing. As for the “Voice,” I think the choppy editing between the judges interactions is almost unwatchable at times, the show has never produced anywhere close to a star that “Idol” has, clearly the judging panel tries to force their comedy way too much, Christina is telling us every 10 seconds she’s “refreshed” this season, Cee-Lo’s head tattoo looks ridiculous, Carson Daly is a second-rate talentless hack who couldn’t host himself out of a paper bag, and outside of the spinning chairs, there’s nothing real original about the show whatsoever. The funny thing is, the judges are always pleading for someone to choose them, and usually follow it up with “We can win this thing together.” Really? But you’ll have 10 other team members as well who you’ll have to sell that to. At some point in the competition, your singers will sing against each other and you’ll have to pick one over the other, and it’ll probably be someone you originally told “We can win this together.” Well, obviously not. And oh yeah, my favorite part is when none of the judges turn around for a singer, then when they do, and if it’s some good looking guy or cute girl, they’re always like, “Man, I should’ve pushed my button,” which basically goes against the whole fabric of the show in terms of picking someone based on their voice and not their appearance. So yeah, other than that, brilliant show.

So on to your “Bachelor” news for the day. Here are some notes regarding this season that I’ve yet to share:

-Most “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” seasons have 25 contestants. Jillian had 30 guys. Brad’s second season had 30 girls. Sean had 26 girls. For whatever reason, they decided on 27 girls for Juan Pablo’s season.

-Sean & Catherine were in LA last week and filmed a segment for the show. Not sure yet what episode it’ll air, but I’m sure it’s to update us on their wedding or to help Juan Pablo out in some way.

-There’s already been a soccer themed date.

-Tonight is rose ceremony #3. I believe they will be filming in LA over the weekend for episode #4, then travel will begin after Monday night’s rose ceremony.

Here are 3 more girls I can confirm for the show. They’ve also been updated in the “Juan Pablo’s Girls” link at the top of the page.

  1. Not a fan of The Voice since it’s become the Blake Shelton show! Love Amazing Race and looking forward to Sunday. Also….GO TRIBE!!

  2. Waiting for Revenge! Haven’t been watching Survivor this season. So disappointed in last season and when I saw the format this year, decided to skip it.

    Looks like Juan has his choice of model, model, or model. Definitely all the women are anxious to be mommies…NOT!

    I too wonder what in the heck he does for a living, or is he paid to post his candid photos?

  3. Why do they cast women with the same hairstyle–long hair–maybe extensions, maybe not? Boring. Someone hot like Michelle Williams, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway would be better than watching the likes of Desiree’s stringy locks blowing across her face.

  4. I don’t watch Revenge, though I did try getting into it once or twice.

    I’m started to mourn the end of Breaking Bad. What a great ride that has been! I’m also getting really excited about The Walking Dead starting in a couple weeks.

    I missed The Voice and DWYS this week, and forgot to record them, but I’ll catch up through On Demand. Thanks goodness for all the wonderful options these days!

  5. I’ll miss Breaking Bad but I think it probably aired for just the right number of seasons and ended before it got stale at all. Also am so excited for Walking Dead’s return. I have to say I gave up on Revenge half way-ish through the second season. I just felt like it was chaotic, all over the place, with waaay too many plot lines going on.

  6. I still have the last half of the final season of Breaking Bad to watch. We always watch it on Netflix since we don’t have cable, but I am dying to know how it will end so I may just buy the final episodes from Amazon.
    Revenge 3:1 was great. I feel like they are purposefully simplifying it and slowing the pace and focusing on the central relationships in response to a lot of negative feedback they got for the Initiative and random craziness last season. Which the excessive drama didn’t make me give up on the show, but it did make me a lot less interested.
    As for the Voice, I just am not a big fan of competition/talent shows in general, but when I do tune in it is always to the Voice. I think for some reason RS decided he wasn’t going to like it before it even aired, I remember him saying it was doomed to fail before it even began and I think him not liking it now is his usual sour grapes for not being right.
    The Voice is much better than Idol in my opinion. Better judges, attracts way more actual talent, the audition process is much more exciting and legitimate, and it just doesn’t have so many seasons yet so it still feels fresher. Idol has a better Host, has actually produced a few stars, and the theme nights are fun.

  7. Vessel, I agree about the amount of time being just right. I don’t know if you catch Talking Dead, but they said the same thing about Vince Gilligan dotting all the eyes, and crossing all the t’s. I cried a couple times, and won’t say when so I don’t spoil it for anyone, but it was emotional. I’m sad that it’s over, but know it was time. Next….Walking Dead!

    My son (25) moved back in with me again and I’m watching all sorts of shows I would never seek out on my own. Everything from Amish Mafia to Sons of Anarchy. Son’s of Anarchy is excellent, but very, very violent.

    RIP Walter White/Heisenberg
