I’m alive! Yes, I know tomorrow will be three weeks since I last posted, but hey, I’m back and that’s all that matters. I’m surprised at how many of you thought that I was done spoiling, or I didn’t know anything about this season, or that ABC silenced me. No, not the case at all. Bottom line is once they started traveling overseas, there usually is never a lot to spoil as it’s happening. Sure I found out about a few things here and there, but nothing worth writing a whole column about. I tweeted out they went to France then Italy. Actually I told you they were going to Italy before the season even started, just didn’t know which leg of the trip it was. Ended up being the middle country, sandwiched in between trips to France and Belgium. Don’t forget, this site is my job. It’s how I make a living. So it’s not going anywhere anytime soon, and just because I don’t write for a couple weeks doesn’t mean I don’t have the spoilers. For the second season in a row, I’m gonna give you your hometown dates before they even start filming. Not to mention I have quite a few other notes about the season I haven’t shared yet, but those will probably be released when I give you your episode-by-episode spoilers. Hometowns will be filming today, Friday, Sunday, and Tuesday. We’ll get to those in a minute.
Few things to start off with, most notably what’s going on with “Bachelor in Paradise.” I can tell you that basically everyone and their mother is being asked to do this show. Put it this way, if you HAVEN’T been approached about it, they really don’t give a sh** about you. So for the next 6 weeks, you will hear rumors, innuendos, speculation, and what not flying all around about who’s gonna be on it, who’s gonna have an alliance, what the show is about, blah blah blah. There is nothing set in stone yet. Not even close. Not only will the cast not even know who the other people in the cast are until they arrive at their location, they’re not even going to know how the show works because they’re not being told. They want to keep as much mystery as possible to not only the audience, but the contestants as well. Good for them. Try as they may, it will make it even better when I spoil that whole season before it airs as well. So anything you hear about “Bachelor in Paradise” over the next month or so, just know it’s a lot of talk. Hey, some of it may turn out to be true, but I’m just saying that any outlet that claims to know exactly how the show is going to work is lying. Nobody knows because THEY don’t know yet. And if they do, they certainly aren’t letting anyone know. Vague things like “no challenges,” “no cash prize,” I’ve already told you about. But in terms of what the show is, is there rose ceremonies, how will people be eliminated, who and how will people be eliminated, will there be immunities, etc., that’s all being kept under wraps.
Recently, E! Online posted a story that Courtney was in talks to do the show, something that I told you about over a month ago. This wasn’t news. Even the other names they threw out in the story were names I had told you about back when I first talked about this, outside of Kalon and Kelly. I’m pretty sure Kalon will do it. Haven’t heard anything either way on Kelly. Also, Chris Bukowski is definitely in, as is AshLee Frazier. So many other names being throw around, but I’d say Courtney, Jef, Chris, AshLee, Michelle, and Sarah Herron are your safest bets right now, but that’s less than half the cast so there’s still many more to come. Those are my most solid bets right now that you can expect to see. I believe Arie is out now, but that could change.
So definitely some interesting things going on in Andi’s season. Some of the things I’ll be revealing to you in the future:
-Who got the first impression rose?
-Who had the adrenaline date?
-Outside of the limo exits, what ridiculous/crazy/stupid thing happened on night one?
-Is there a 2-on-1 date this season?
-What happened the first night that we’ve never seen before?
-What 1-on-1 date mimicked a TV show?
-Who got eliminated before a rose ceremony?
So yeah, there’s plenty of information I’m well aware of this season. Reports of my demise and ABC shutting me down were just ridiculous speculation. I’m not going anywhere and I’m going to spoil their season like I always do. No worries. Just felt like taking a couple weeks off during the slow time of filming when less information is coming out, that’s all.
I tweeted a while ago that I had 6 others guys to release to you whose first names began with “C,” “N,” “C,” “J,” “N,” and “C.” Well, two of those I’ll be giving you today since they’re in the final four and getting hometown dates, one “C” and one “N.” So here is your final 4 this season…
