“Reader Emails,” Clare’s Conference Call Today & Live Video Chat Tonight at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST

February 6th, 2014 | 5 Comments | Posted in Reader Emails, The Bachelor 18 - Juan Pablo

Back tonight with another live video chat at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST. Gonna go about 45 minutes, and I’m guessing a lot of you will want to talk about the Clare/Juan Pablo frolic in the ocean from this past Monday night. Clare is on a conference call with the media today to talk about the show, and I’m guessing that’ll be the first question asked of her. And Clare will absolutely deny sex took place. And you know what? Most people won’t care or believe her. She’s already guilty until proven innocent in the public eye, so nothing she says today is going to change anyone’s mind. Just go look on Twitter of what people think happened. It’s running waaaaay in favor of she did. It didn’t happen. But it doesn’t matter what I say, or if Clare denies it, the damage has already been done. The show got what they wanted by making everyone think they had sex in the water by showing two people kissing in the ocean with their bathing suits on. It’s been a hot topic this whole week and will continue to be in an otherwise boring season. They didn’t have sex in the ocean. Don’t know what else to tell ya’.

Former lead herself Jillian Harris also chimed in on it, and she’s got a little experience in this area when the whole overnight date with Ed thing was aired, and people just automatically assumed he couldn’t get it up that night because of the way it was edited, the soundbites they played, and choppy edited talks shown afterwards. Jillian’s take on Monday’s episode:

I think people in the know who have experienced this show know exactly how Monday’s episode was made to look. The other 99% of their audience that just watches an edited television show for 2 hours every week and wants to believe things that aren’t there see something different. Hey, it’s worked. Everyone’s talking about it so they win.

Totally off topic, but Juan Pablo kinda put his foot in his mouth again on Twitter last night. In case you missed it, former 3 time World Series champion pitcher Curt Schilling announced yesterday he has cancer. And the fact that he didn’t announce what type of cancer he has makes me think this might not be good. Well, anyway Juan Pablo thought he should tweet Curt and share his condolences. I think.

Really? I’m guessing cancer victims would disagree with that. Game 7 of the World Series, or cancer? Hmmmmm, tough one JP. I think the Big C wins out every day of the week and twice on Sundays. I think I know what Juan Pablo was trying to say, but yet again, it came out wrong and looks completely insensitive. No Juan Pablo, he’s NOT had tougher games than what he’s about to battle through. Just quit tweeting altogether how about that?

Some of you have asked about the Juan Pablo and Nikki tweets from Tuesday where they both mentioned they were at an airport, both mentioned they were cold, and then he tweeted from LA saying he’s watching soccer and Nikki tweeted a picture of a snowed in hotel from Colorado. Yeah, that was done on purpose. They are together. Don’t let fake Twitter pictures fool you. It’s obvious Nikki was put up to it to throw people off with that pic of the Colorado hotel. Once their tweets on Tuesday were made public, they scrambled and tried to cover but did a very bad job of it. They’re not fooling anybody. She was in LA with him on Tuesday and I’m guessing leaves today or tomorrow. Usually the visits are 2-3 days long. Busted.

Alli and Christy went on the KISS FM radio station in Chicago the other day to talk about their time on the show. Here’s the 6 min interview:

Pretty funny that they acknowledge they got no screen time because essentially they caused no drama and he wasn’t into them. And it doesn’t look like they’ll be hanging out with Kylie anytime soon. Yikes.

  1. Another good batch of reader emails today. To the person who wrote in about Juan Pablo and mentioned someone else had commented that he sometimes sounds like Kermit the Frog when he talks- that was me. Good to know someone else sees it too!

    XM/Sirius has been having another free two week trial period, and since nothing can top 80′s on 8 and 90′s on 9 in my book, I haven’t been listening to KIIS FM like I normally do in the mornings. Awesome to hear Seacrest said that about JP and I’m sad I missed that.

  2. If I hear one more person justify that JP and Clare MUST have had sex because she couldn’t possibly be that upset if they didn’t, I’m gonna puke. It has never been more obvious to me that they DIDN’T have sex. Come on, people! She’s upset because she thought she had basically won the whole thing by having that “special” secret time with him, and then when he told her it was a mistake, she freaked and felt stupid. He’s an idiot and doesn’t know how to communicate, so she felt way worse about it than she should have. All he should have said was “it was really fun but we probably shouldn’t do anything like that again because I feel bad not being fair with my time.” That would’ve been the end of it….he’s “slow” and made her feel like an idiot, and that’s why she was crying. The girl obviously is screwed up anyways, you saw her emotions when she saw the snow date…obviously everything that happens good or bad is gonna send her into a tailspin…this was no different. She cried because she’s over the top emotional, not because they had sex. Ugh. ok. just had to get that out.

  3. I don’t think anyone who concluded that sex happened based their reasoning solely off that one data point (Clare’s emotions). The ‘absolutes’ say they did. It’s a big a** leap to conclude they didn’t.

    Many comments here have allowed for the possibility that perhaps it didn’t go as far as coitus, but went beyond anything they’d done previously; which is more than reasonable.

    If you look around the web, you’ll find that an overwhelming majority of entertainment outlets, bloggers, etc., have concluded they went all the way (or as far as they could). It’s the most reasonable conclusion. Whether they did or not, that was the message conveyed intentionally by both Clare & the producers, and an unwitting, JP.

    No question Clare got used, but a ^victim she’s not*. She was totally onboard with everything that happened (with the producers & JP) only she was majorly overly confident — making a 16 y/o’s error… not knowing the difference between a heart and a hard-on.

    And OF COURSE they’re denying it now. When has anyone copped to coitus on this show???? Further, they both have huge motivations to save face. What else are they going to do but deny, deny, deny?

  4. Amyrn…Tell us how you really feel!

    I agree with you though that they probably didn’t have sex, but it’s pretty out there that there is a good chance that hands were being very “handy” underneath those ocean bathwarm waters. Clare is “Clare” and in her mind, him touching her private was tantamount to sex.
