A few of you have emailed recently talking about JP’s upcoming season saying you think it’ll suck, no one will watch, the ratings will blow, and this’ll be the last season. Let me just say that as much as a joke this season will be, doesn’t mean no one will watch. Plus, don’t underestimate the Latino audience this season. Look, the core audience that watches this show every season no matter who the lead is will still come back and watch. They aren’t going anywhere. But what’s gonna help this season is the Latino audience. I mean, I could be wrong, but I don’t think Latinos were all that excited about white Sean, white Ben, and all the other white leads this show has had in every previous season. I’m sure there was some Latin viewership, but probably quite minimal. Don’t think there won’t be an increase this season with Juan Pablo as the lead. It’s inevitable. Just go on the “Bachelor” Facebook page and read the comments that people write under the promotion for this season. There’s thousands of them, so I don’t expect you to read all, but you can see all the varying opinions on JP. You’ll get a good laugh. Also shows how clueless some people are when it comes to this show. You know, comments like, “OMG!!!! He’s so hot!!!! I HAVE to apply!!!!” Idiots.
And of course, be sure to check out this season’s episode-by-episode spoilers.
-Yesterday, Gawker.com decided to pick up the story of who SnapChat founder Evan Spiegel’s girlfriend is, which we know to be current “Bachelor” suitor Lucy Aragon. And props to them for linking to this site. Hey, maybe my little speech worked. Then again as far as I know, Gawker has probably never talked about the “Bachelor” franchise ever, so it’s not like they were an offender.
According to WetPaint, looks like Sean’s bachelor party will be next weekend in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, while Catherine’s is in Miami, but neither will be filmed. Probably a good idea. With 2 hours of a live show to produce for the wedding, do you really want a bunch of pre-packaged pieces? Also, Sean confirmed what was pretty much a given that his dad will be the minister at his wedding. At least it’ll be better than Chris Harrison.
-Well that didn’t take long. Francesa Eastwood already looking to get an annulment after her quickie wedding in Vegas to Jonah Hill’s brother. How many late night, spur-of-the-moment, seat-of-your-pants weddings in Vegas end up in divorces or annulments? All of them? 95%? I need to know statistics like this.
-Not that we should be surprised by this, but Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison didn’t sign a pre-nup. And how could they really? Courtney’s already admitted to us she doesn’t read or write. He could’ve scratched out a pre-nup on lined notebook paper that said “Banana couches like cars who eat paper shoes” and told her it a pre-nup and she wouldn’t have known the difference. She’s a bright one.
-For all those that wonder if the “Bachelor” franchise is on its last legs, or their losing audience and losing money, look no further than creator Mike Fleiss selling his home to skateboarder Shaun White for $8.9 million. And he’s worried about me and what I do? I’ll never understand that one.
-Someone decided it’d be a brilliant idea to hand Miranda Kerr a bra that’s barely a bra, and say “Here, wear this so we can take a picture.” That someone should be given some sort of Lifetime Achievment Award if you ask me.
-Carrie Underwood says she’s getting hate tweets for being the lead in the “Sound of Music” live musical NBC is airing next month. Carrie, let me tell you something. You’d be getting hate tweets if you built an orphanage in a third world country, donated $10 million to charities, save children from a burning building, and fostered 100 puppies. You can’t win. Nobody can.
-Last night on the “Biggest Loser,” trainer Bob Harper came out as gay. Wow. NEVER saw that one coming. Really? Bob? No way!
-The Pitbull/Ke$ha collaboration finally has a video. I will admit something maybe I shouldn’t. I watch Ke$ha’s show on MTV and it’s surprisingly good. There. I said it. Enjoy “Timber” and try getting it out of your head now for the rest of the day:
-This one pretty much made a bunch of females squeal today. Taylor Swift and Prince William performing with Jon Bon Jovi singing “Livin’ on a Prayer.” How long before a tabloid report that Prince William is cheating on Kate with T-Swizzle? 24 or 48 hrs?
-Is Kaley Cuoco trying to set a world record or something? First she gets dumped by Superman, then immediately moves on to a new dude, who she gets engaged to immediately, and now has set her wedding date for New Year’s Eve. If I didn’t know any better, I would think her and Jennifer Love Hewitt had some sort of bet going. Speaking of which…
-…Jennifer is going to win that bet. Not only did she pop out her kid yesterday, daugther Autumn James, she apparently went and gone got hurself some kinda married before she gave birth, unbeknownst to pretty much everyone. Oh boy. Maybe it’s time that I move on.
-Keith Urban cut his hair yesterday. I guess he was going for the butch lesbian look. What the hell? Not sure if my man crush on the Urb can continue now.
-This is a few weeks old, but ran across it again yesterday. Anytime I can post a story about true love, well, you know I’d never pass on an opportunity like that. I love Kyle’s game here in this love letter. Wish I had the balls to do that. Wait your turn Kyle. Just let Ashley finish up with her dude she’s with now, and you’ll be next. Patience my good friend.
