Back tonight with another live video chat 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST. Hopefully the Nick stuff is behind us and we can just start focusing on the train wreck that is “Bachelor in Paradise.” I think we could definitely talk about that for an hour. So join me tonight as we break down this summer’s trashiest new show! I really am missing the days of “Bachelor Pad.” Chris Harrison’s stance is that “Bachelor Pad” felt wrong to them because it ended up being about money, and that’s not what their show is about. Total BS. If you did one season of it, I can see where you could give that answer. You did it three times with the same concept all three times, so shut up about it “not feeling right.” Please. Chris saying their show isn’t about money is true. But that’s the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette.” This is a different show, so it’s ok to be about something different. Best example is the “Real World” franchise. Their spinoff is the “Challenge” which pits former contestants in challenges for money. “Real World” isn’t about money, but the “Challenge” is, and some will argue the “Challenge” is a hell of a lot more interesting than the “Real World.” I would. We already have two seasons per calendar year about “love,” with the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette.” Doesn’t mean you need to make your spin off show all about that since most people aren’t buying it anyway.
Ok, someone needs to tell Nick to just let it go. He wrote a guest column for Sean Lowe’s blog (like Arie did last week), explaining himself YET AGAIN on why he said what he did at the ATFR. Why is he still talking about this? I thought he was done last week? Nick, you’re not going to convince anyone who already doesn’t think what you did was sh***y that it wasn’t. I understand you’re trying to justify what you did, but it’s coming off as desperate. Some people have no problem with what you did, some do. Just let it be. It’s old news, yet the more you keep talking about it, the worse it’s getting. Nothing he said in that column is nothing he didn’t tell any media outlet last week. It’s the same thing. We know why you said you what you did. You’ve made that perfectly clear.
Speaking of Nick, did you catch his twitter battle with Marcus from Monday night? Fun times. I take it Marcus won’t be inviting Nick to his wedding now? Settle down now. It’s just a silly TV show. Marcus really seems to dislike Nick considering he hasn’t had one good thing to say about him since the season ended. Not to mention during the season he called him a douchebag. Kiss and make up, fellas.
I’m sure some of you have seen this by now, but the city of Santa Fe, New Mexico is currently bidding to have an episode filmed in their city for next season of the “Bachelor.” This is essentially how it works in terms of where they go. First time I ever really remember a city coming out publicly and talking about their bid. Usually it’s said after the fact, but apparently Santa Fe wants an episode real bad. They are correct in saying that other cities are being considered. I’ve heard of three other cities currently bidding for the final stop before hometowns, and a couple months ago, I told you I’d heard about where they might be headed for the final rose ceremony. That’s because I heard of which city placed the bid, the dates, and what they were trying to secure. I just haven’t heard if their bid was accepted yet. And if it wasn’t, does it mean the show still wants to stay in the same area, just a different location? Or it means if that bid is rejected, they go somewhere else completely? That’s what I’m unsure of.
