The magic of WiFi. Currently on a flight headed to CA for the weekend and finishing up today’s column. Wanted to wish a Happy 10th Birthday to my niece Olivia today. I cannot believe she’s 10. That’s is ridiculous, it’s insane, and just wrong on so many levels. She’s now closer to graduating high school than she was to being born. If that made any sense whatsoever. It did in my head. So to commemorate today’s birthday, she will be joining me on the live video chat tonight at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST for the last 15 minutes. We’ll decide if Nicholas is fit enough to come on tonight. We all remember what happened last time as he was on a sugar high and showing everyone his gum. I’ll try and keep him away from all sugars before the show starts. Won’t be easy. And oh yeah, Olivia’s friend might be there too since we’ll be having a BBQ at my sister’s house tonight for her birthday. Should be interesting. See you then.
In case you missed my tweet last night, or haven’t checked the site since then, your “Bachelor in Paradise” episode-by-episode spoilers are now up. You can either click that link, or just scroll down to the post below this one. I wanted to get you all the basics of what to expect: everyone who appeared on the show, when they came in, how/why they were eliminated, and how it ended. There are a few dates missing and the who-gave-a-rose-to-who might be mixed up on a few occasions, but for the most part, all of that is accurate. I know it seems a little confusing, but when you actually read through each episode, it actually isn’t all that bad. I’m sure we’ll talk about it more tonight.
Forgot to put this in Tuesday’s column, but Cody had his conference call with the media last week. I found it funny because he had to answer questions about Andi’s season, yet he had just returned from filming “Bachelor in Paradise” where he and Michelle left as a couple, so he’s probably like, “Yeah, whatever. Don’t care about these questions.” I know, I don’t think anyone would have predicted Cody and Michelle to end up together, especially when he doesn’t arrive until episode 4, but hey, it happened. Now we just wait and see if it works out. I will say this for Cody. In all the years I’ve covered this show, I probably have heard at least one negative thing about every relevant guy who’s appeared. Most I’ve heard numerous things. In the three months we’ve known Cody to be a contestant on this show, I’ve yet to hear even one negative thing about the guy. That surprises me. Still plenty of time, but as of now, it’s been the opposite. People have done nothing but gush about him to me. So props to Cody so far for avoiding that. Lets see how long that lasts.
One last deleted scene that wasn’t up by the time I posted on Tuesday. Which sucks because this is the best one yet. I mean, if you didn’t care for Nick before, you’ll probably dislike him even more after this. I mean, this is just straight up cocky, arrogant, and about as self absorbed as you can get.
