For whatever reason, my Twitter app on my phone was down for about 3 hours last night during the show, hence the reason I wasn’t live tweeting. I had gotten back from Vegas in plenty of time, so, I was ready to live tweet. Not sure what happened. Probably purposely done by Apple so I’d go out and buy the new Iphone6. Hey Apple, no need to do that. I’m gonna buy it anyway I’m sure. For whatever it’s worth, had a great time in Vegas for the bachelor party. Fun catching up with friends and a lot of funny moments throughout the weekend. Including the douchenozzle in the sportsbook who told me that, “Mandalay Bay was made for their pools. The pools make way more money than the sportsbook does.” Ummmm, might be one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard. The pools make more money than the sportsbook? You sure about that, big guy? Probably not. And another shout out to the group sitting in front of us in the sportsbook on Sunday who couldn’t have been any more annoying if they tried. You ever want to have a good laugh in Vegas, just visit any sportsbook on opening weekend of NFL season and you’ll see the amount of delusion running rampant. It’s unreal.
So nothing that happened last night should’ve surprised anyone. You were given the episode-by-episode spoilers back in the first week of July, and every arrival, elimination, and ending relationship happened exactly how it was laid out. Been telling you for weeks Cody and Michelle are still together and he was moving to Utah, and based off of all Michelle’s tweets and Instagram videos last night, you can see that’s clearly happened. You know how I feel about people who constantly need to publicly talk about their relationship on social media. It’s already overkill and the relationship is less than a day old in the “public” world. Oh boy.
You knew about Marcus’ proposal back on July 7th, yet tabloid sites aren’t referencing it today. Real shocker there. Marcus and Lacy did an interview with People magazine that went up about seconds after the show aired talking about their courtship. People also has the details on the ring that Neil Lane provided for him.
Chris Harrison provided his assessment of the season in his weekly TVGuide.com interview, and he seems to be on Cloud 9 about how awesome this show was. I know that’s what he’s supposed to say, but this is straight up delusional if he thinks it was this good. Really Chris? You want to see more of Brooks next season? Chris goes overboard in most interviews he does, but this one sure seems to take the cake.
Lets take a stroll down memory lane, shall we? Remember the season preview for “Bachelor in Paradise?” Looking back on it now, this preview is a joke:
There were so many things in that preview that weren’t even shown during the season. “There was blood everywhere” – we never got that. The scene with the handcuffs that made it seem like someone was getting arrested – never addressed. On and on and on and on this goes with quick soundbites over video footage that didn’t even match up. So ultimately when the season preview for Chris’ season comes out sometime in December, just keep this preview in mind and know that the preview for the season isn’t half as dramatic as they make it seem.
Speaking of Chris’ season, I’m almost positive filming begins next week. I just don’t know exactly what day yet. My guess is that we’ll see Chris in the audience at the DWTS premiere Monday night, and the meet and greet will take place probably Tues or Wed night. If I find out the correct date I’ll let you know, but I do fully expect to see him at the DWTS premiere next Monday. As for Chris’ girls, the more I start finding out, I’ll let you know accordingly. There is no set day or time as to when I’ll start releasing them. I just do it when I feel like it, so follow me on Twitter for updates on when that will be.
Good to know I’ll be employed for another year with the “Bachelor,” “Bachelorette,” and “Bachelor in Paradise” all returning for 2015. These next few months are pretty slow for the site even though I’ll be spoiling what I can of Chris’ season as it films. Starting next Monday though will be the return of “Daily Links.” If you weren’t around last year when I did this, I basically just posted links every day to pop culture, entertainment, and sports stories that I think you might find interesting. Rather than search the internet all day long for stuff, I put it all in one neat column for you. So get ready for that starting next Monday. The final “Reader Emails,” and “Dr. Reality Steve” until next season will be on Thursday, and the final live video chat until 2015 will be Thursday night. Hope to see you then.
Also, friend and former “Bachelorette” contestant Richard Mathy has a kickstarter campaign for a brewery he is starting with a buddy in upstate New York that you can donate to now. Richard is a great guy and this is a venture I know he’s pretty passionate about, so if you want to help out in any way, use that link to donate.
