“Reader Emails (Part 2), “Dr. Reality Steve” Plus News & Notes

This may have been brought to your attention already, but looks like Jade may have had a boyfriend during some of the beginning of the taping process! This guy just posted this tonight.

JadeEarrings

Comment: Not to mention that guy personally emailed me Monday night and wanted me to put that on my site offering me 10%. I never responded back. Maybe I should’ve. He’s definitely legit because I was emailed his name back when I confirmed Jade. Was told it was a guy that she had just screwed over. Sounds like he’s still bitter. I just never followed up with it.

Hey Reality Steve,

Long time reader – congrats on another season spoiled !! Do you think Kaitlyn was initially signed on to be bachelorette before they asked Britt. Reason I’m asking is kaitlyn did not seem impressed during the announcement and made a comment like this wasn’t ideal
And basically saying she didn’t know it was going to be two bachelorettes when she signed on whereas; Britt looked over the moon excited. Any insight ?

Thanks and looking forward
To reading during the bachelorette.

Comment: She knew it was going to be two “Bachelorettes” when she signed her deal. They both did. Now the question I don’t know is, when they initially brought it up to Kaitlyn did they first go to her and say, “We’re thinking of doing 2 Bachelorettes, are you interested?” My guess would be no. Because when I reported two weeks ago Kaitlyn was gonna be the “Bachelorette,” I wasn’t told anything about Britt still being in the picture. So I’m not sure. I’m sure she thought it was just her during the negotiating process, but as they got closer to the finale, they throw the wrinkle in. Guess she didn’t want to back out.
________________________________________________________

Sorry if this is a dumb question but it’s been bothering me..at the final/ last rose/ proposal in most cases.. Do they really turn one down than pop the question to the next back to back? Or is it split between two days?! It’s within a couple hours.

When are they going to officially announce he’s on dancing with the stars? On ATFR he was saying how he wanted to be back to a normal life… Hello buddy being on another t.v. Show isn’t a normal life. Get out of here..It was announced Tuesday morning on GMA.

So since Britt and Kaitlyn are both going to be running to find “true” love.. If I understand it right…the first episode they are going to meet both girls then pick who they want?!

So already been threatened by my friends if I look at the spoilers that they are going to kill me..: that is going to take a lot since I’m so addicted to reading your columns… But don’t tell them I’ll probably peek cause I can’t help myself… And this wasn’t the most dramatic season.. Way to beef it up ABC.

Comment: I’m sure we’ll all know by at latest the end of the weekend. Filming is beginning today/tonight.

Dear Reality Steve,

I want you to know that I do a killer “celebrity” impersonation of you. If I ever apply to SNL, I’m going to use that in my audition, but I think the reference may be too obscure.

First of all, congratulations, you were RIGHT! You’ve always proven yourself right except for the one time, or twice.

A few points: The Bachelorette is usually the relieving time when the rejected woman gets to be the one making the calls. To pit two people against each other who have JUST FINISHED competing against each other (and hoped this would be the end of their rejection)… well, it’s kind of lame… even if it has been done before with 2 Bachelors. It was obviously unnerving to the studio audience, too. They were groaning like they were truly sick to their stomachs. I think the overwhelming response was for Kaitlyn, and the talk of it being “50/50” is inaccurate. Producers know that Britt’s face is going to draw a lot of people to the screen. So they brought her into the mix even when Bachelor Nation said, go Kaitlyn.

My Bachelor watching partner asserts that Britt’s god-given beauty has made her into an adult baby — a fragile, emotional person who gets what she wants. “She hasn’t earned a place as the Bachelorette,” he says. “Has she worked hard for anything in her life? Well, she probably has been a missionary.”

I wish her all the best. But my heart felt most for Kaitlyn, who seemed to deserve her spot (after some real heartache, not just emotional blubbering).

Comment: The most amazing part of your email is saying you do an impression of me. Someone does that? I didn’t know I had anything distinct about me to impersonate. Well, other than my handsomely good looks, my charming personality, and my salon style hair.
________________________________________________________

Heart breaks for genuine Kaitlyn … men think with their appendiges not their brain and Britt gives off a really sexy vibe. The fact she is an attention seeking airhead won’t matter to the guys so long as she pouts and flashes her attributes. So chances are she will be chosen.

Oh well lots of other shows I can watch Monday nights and I hope others do the same. If Britt is chosen I hope its the lowest rating ever for the show.

Thanks for your site … makes the show much more interesting as you see how editing tries to keep the suspense up …

Comment: I wouldn’t be so sure. I think at this point, the show would probably be disappointed if the guys picked Britt. Don’t forget the producers will still have complete control of who the “Bachelorette” is, even though they will swear up and down they didn’t.
________________________________________________________

Hey Steve,

Curious if you think the producers will stack the deck with guys they think will pick one or the other to control who gets chosen while pretending to actually leave it up to them? Seems the fans overwhelmingly prefer Kaitlyn so maybe they’re doing this to create drama but will manipulate it so it works out in favor of the fan favorite. They already know which guy likes which girl going in. These guys were cast long before they made the decision to go with 2 Bachelorettes. They will get the “Bachelorette” they want. I just don’t know who the producers want. I think they always wanted Britt, then once Kaitlyn became America’s favorite and everyone in Bachelor world is tweeting #TeamKaitlyn, I think they know what they have to do at this point, whether they want to or not.

Also, do you think the rabid “I refuse to watch if ____ is the Bachelorette” fans will actually go through with it this season? Seems like since they’re creating such a divide between the two camps, pitting one against the other, they might actually get a decent sized drop off if the first night doesn’t go their way. I for one didn’t mind Britt all that much until I found out it would either be her or Kaitlyn getting rejected on night 1. Now I’m firmly on Kaitlyn’s side and would not be invested in Britt knowing that her happiness would equal Kaitlyn’s disappointment.

Congrats on the successful spoilers yet again!

Comment: I don’t think so. Plus, it’ll be impossible to prove. All we can do is compare Kaitlyn’s/Britt’s seasons to past season. We can’t compare a Kaitlyn season to a Britt season because they’re each not getting their own.
________________________________________________________

Hi Steve,

Great job this season as always. I’ll keep this short

Has the final couple ever spent the night of their final date before the final rose ceremony together? And if not, why not? They’ve already spent the night together in the fantasy suite. Does the show not let them because that might give away the ending? That wouldn’t happen if he slept with both again and at that point he’s always supposedly undecided. No, the last time they sleep together is the overnight date.

Did In-n-Out burger pay you for that spot on your blog? If not, they should have.

Comment: No. I actually only just tweeted it out, and basically there isn’t much money to be made, if any, on Twitter unless you’re an A-list celebrity.
________________________________________________________

Hey RS,

First off, I love reading your column, but my fiancé hates it because I make him watch it with me and he doesn’t want to know what happens.

You keep talking about how you think that the guys will choose night one if they want Britt or Kaitlyn to be the Bachelorette. I was just thinking. Many years ago, MTV did a show called A Double Shot at Love in which they had bisexual female twins as the leads. They were both the lead and could choose whoever they wanted to keep at each ‘choosing ceremony’. They could even switch with each other who they wanted to keep at the next ceremony. I think it was quite a few episodes in (or even the finale) where they had to make it official as to who was pursuing whom. It’s confusing and I don’t remember all the details as it was many years ago.

Do you think it would be possible for this type of scenario to take place in order to keep both girls in the game a little?

Just a thought of a little different scenario.

Comment: No. Because Kaitlyn and Britt aren’t bisexual twins. At least not that I know of. Would be kinda hot though if they…forget it.
________________________________________________________

Hello Steve,

Sounds like all those weirdo emails you received questioning your sources are coming from people on the show. Maybe even Fleiss’ interns. Producers can be VICIOUS, cutthroat people who will smile at your face and stab you in the back in a minute. They are masters of deception and manipulation. Don’t think for one second they’re not reading your blog or trying to trip you up. Double check every source! Keep your friends close and your enemies closer. I wouldn’t even post the emails or respond to them. They were probably trying to get you to stop doing what you’re doing. Don’t!!! I don’t and I won’t. I strictly keep those emails so the majority of my readers who actually have a brain and listen to my spoilers can have a good laugh at the ignorant’s expense.

As for the show itself, I didn’t watch most of the season and skipped through most of the episodes I did watch. Chris is one of the worst Bachelors the show has had. It’s very selfish to want to go out and find a woman and plug her into his life as he sees fit. Relationships are give and take!! He also kissed Britt in front of other girls among other snafus. The AFTR was beyond boring. I mean, Becca couldn’t possibly have cared less that she was dumped. And he chose Whitney? Yikes. She seemed very defensive last night.

I agree that Britt is the best fit. Maybe because I skimmed through most of the episodes but I don’t see why she’s so hated. Maybe she’s a drama queen but that doesn’t make her fake. She seems genuine and sweet and probably just likes to be the center of attention. Doesn’t mean she’s fake. Kaitlyn is cute and funny but if guys are going to choose a woman after one night, they will always go for the hottest one first, hands down.

Keep doing what you’re doing. Your blog is what makes the show watchable. The clowns that work on that show should be thanking you!!

Comment: I always thought, even as of Monday, that if the guys had to choose, they’d go for looks on the first night and Britt would win. Now, I really would be shocked if the guys ended up choosing Britt today/tonight.
________________________________________________________

STEVEEEE! Oh my goodness I love you. Let me just tell you that I have been watching the show since season 1 of the bachelor and ever since I started going to you for spoilers… I’ve been hooked. I can always count on you to give me details plus some behind the scenes stuff which I find SOO interesting. My friends will hate when I say I know who wins, but I have always defended your knowledge and sources:) Yes, there has been a few slips in the past with information but sh*t Steve, you are one hell of a guy with your information. I do plenty of research and stalk to crap out of reality TV, and I have no idea how you do what you do. You are so hilarious and so good on how you word all your recaps to make them easy to understand. I guess I just wanted to say.. don’t let the hate get to you. But I know you don’t listen to the skeptical haters. JUST KEEP DOING YOU. You are the only source out there that I can count on. Not only for just knowing who wins, but you also give us the dirt on random things you find out which I find so interesting. THANK YOU REALITY STEVE! NEVER STOP <3 Comment: Thank you. I do my best. Sure I’m gonna miss small things here and there like maybe a group date rose, or who said what to whom, but if I say “Here are your episode-by-episode spoilers,” those are going to be pretty solid. When I didn’t have the first 5 episodes this past season, I told you I didn’t. I still had info here and there within those 5 that ended up being accurate, but I didn’t have everything laid out for you. If I know something, I’ll say I know it and I’ll report it. If I say “this is what I’m hearing” or “I think this happens” then it very well could, but I’m not as sure. Some people seem to have a hard time making that distinction. If I don’t know something, I will absolutely say I don’t know it, or haven’t heard that from my sources.
________________________________________________________

Hi Steve,

Well done on the result at the finale! I never doubted that Whitney would win, even without your spoilers it made the most sense as the season went on. I want to comment on this “double Bachelorette” situation and express what a bad idea I think it is.

Kaitlyn would make a much better bachelorette and is the most popular. She is funny, sexy, witty, confident and mature. It’s a real shame she is being sidelined here, it’s not fair at all- not to mention misogynistic. Guys may choose Britt based off her initial hotness and lose interest later based on what a drama queen/cry-baby/deluded/immature/disingenuous/actress she is. I hope they have more sense than that.

Okay rant over my real question: If the producers really want to mix things up and have two bachelorettes and get everyone excited about the new season why have one of them leave the first night? Makes no sense. They are hyping up this whole thing for it all to be over on night one and for the rest of the season to be normal. Plus, there is the thing that you brought up about the whole thing being spoiled initially about which bachelorette stays. I think it would be a far better and drama-filled season if both try to “find love” with the guys for the duration of the show. It could even lead to them liking the same guy which would make it interesting, there are so many possibilities…..Anyway, I’m curious to hear your thoughts on this?

Also, I know you’ve been told this before but you should really read Sharleen’s recaps. She is really great, coming at it from a former cast member’s perspective and giving lots of great behind the scenes info.

Thanks for all you work!

Comment: I just don’t see how it can happen. The show isn’t adding 11 more episodes. It’s not going to be 4 hours every Monday night. That’s way too congested. And essentially the show has said they plan on having the guys eliminate one girl on the first night. Unless that changes today, that’s what they’re going with.

How would they possibly do 8 hometowns and 6 overnight dates?
________________________________________________________

great job this season as always! i never doubted you. i did accidentally ruin the show ending and the two bachelorette twist for my coworker –> not good. she is now threatening to ruin survivor. now that would be upsetting!

couple of things:

1. did you ever give any more thought to saving your thursday spreecasts as podcasts? i listen to rob cesternino’s during my commute and would love to add you to the mix. Me and my webmaster are looking into this for next season. We’re seeing how cost effective this is.

2. i still can’t pull up your site on my phone. pop ups take me away from the main page. any way to make them open as a new page instead of taking the user away from the main page? We’re working on that as well.

3. how pissed did kaitlin seem about sharing spotlight with britt? certainly seemed at the WTA she thought she had it and britt was doubly upset by seeing chris and recently losing the gig. then last night britt was over the moon and Kaitlin couldn’t hide it. She definitely didn’t hide it. Pissed.

4. was that the first ending where the second place person legit wasn’t upset? becca was more like, eh i don’t love him anyway. she even acknowledged she had to business going on the show. That I can remember, yes.

5. why a cow? Because Chris is a farmer and I guess they didn’t think they had enough farming jokes this season they had to throw one more in.

6. i know you won’t believe me but… i am actually a person who says “i won’t watch if it is britt” and will hold true to that. but then again not a true fan, i skip seasons here and there based on lead. made it 10 minutes into ben’s. don’t plan on watching britt. your site is enough for me – no need to actually watch 🙂 Which is fine. But that makes you someone this show isn’t catering to.

anyways, thanks for another great season!! love your site!

    about britt being bachelorette, i just dont see why any guy who watched the show would want her. besides all the crying, its the the bitchy caddy judgemental attitude toward chris soules for being on a date with kaityln who skinny dipped. remember how she chastized him for “rewarding inappropriate behaviour”? why would any guy want to get involved in that? britt even tried to make chris feel bad for that date by saying other girls in the house are questioning his intentions. what a bitch! why wouldnt a guy want to skinny dip, tell jokes, make out, laugh, make out and have a good time?

    to see the real Ashley S watch the interview michelle money did with her, ashely i, jillian and samantha on michellemoney’s youtube. shes just a silly person, uncomfortable in front of the cameras.

    Regarding the letter from the friend of “Lacy”, her mom needs to take a beat and stop watching True Crime TV shows. The Asian fiance’ can’t just whisk her out of the country without warning. That’s called kidnapping. And Lacy would also need both a valid passport and a Visa to leave the country, neither of which can’t be gotten instantly.

    Lacy sounds like a flake and honestly mom should be more worried about the state of her daughter’s mental health than the fiance’s vague plans.

    Alright Britt, time to lay some signature “just long enough so that he thinks i totally want to sleep with him” hugs on 13 guys.

  5. Amanda

    March 12, 2015 at 12:25 PM

    It sounds like the people who are so concerned about “Lacy” are racist/xenophobic and are trying to couch it as a legitimate concern.

    For the woman who lost 100 lbs: don’t be so hard on yourself. Most women do not have perfect naked bodies. Have you ever even seen any “real” naked female bodies (i.e. not strippers or porn stars)? Good on you for loving yourself enough to lose the weight. Be proud of that! If you feel like you need to warn people, go right ahead, but I’m sure you’re your harshest critic.

    Being an attractive woman who is single and looking is a double-edged sword at times. Yes, it’s easier to attract men, but you also attract men who only really like you because they think you’re pretty/hot/whatever and then you have to weed them out because you can’t base an entire meaningful relationship on that.

  6. angelfish

    March 12, 2015 at 12:30 PM

    Good point Amanda, about the “concern” for Lacy. Obviously she’s an adult, but mom doesn’t seem to trust her decision on whom to marry. Definitely sounds like the Asian part is key or else the letter writer wouldn’t have even mentioned it. “Damn furriners a’comin’ here to steal our wimmenfolk!”

    I think the whole “I won’t watch The Bachelor if it’s Britt/Kaitlyn” is hysterical… especially the idea that it will impact ratings. Anyone that is that cray-cray that they’d not watch the show because the wrong Bachelorette gets picked (and I suppose they’ll hold their breath until they turn blue too) lives on the show’s lunatic fringe. Yeah, I get that they’re out there, but it’s a small, small percentage. I think most of the comments we read like that are just venting from people who have a preference. But people who will actually follow through and not watch the show?? That’s a Tiny percentage of nut bags. Not even worth mentioning. Don’t forget, 25,000 nut bags (and I doubt it’s that many) don’t even move the needle when you’re talking about viewership of 7M. That’s like 1/3 of a percent. That stuff makes me laugh.

    Now if people tune in and it’s a snoozer, and people don’t buy in & get invested in any of the contestants or the Bachelorette, then THAT could impact ratings. The Bachelorette has had an incredible run. But some day they’ll miss and it will be the beginning of the end. It’s hard to imagine, though, because you’d think a season like Juan Pah-Blow, and obvious tool with zero serious interest in the girls or even feigning interest, would have tanked & it didn’t.

    also, dont forget something very important. how we watch tv has changed. i come here for the dialogue, i go to steve for spoilers. i go to ihategreenbeans for the funny commentary. i dont watch the show, only but some clips that the producers upload to their youtube channel (which is gone, btw). i cant be alone in “watching” the show like this. and i see this way of “watching” growing.

  10. elizabeth82

    March 12, 2015 at 2:21 PM

    @rob22, I’m not on the show’s lunatic fringe and I boycotted seasons of “The Bachelor”: Brad 2.0 because been there done that and dude needed therapy not another season of this show, and these because I didn’t like them from when they were on “The Bachelorette”: Jason, Jake, and Juan Pablo. I’d do the same for Britt: this show’s a big time commitment and there are too many good books out there to watch a lead of this show that I don’t like. Just sayin. (And it’s kinda like voting–it may mean nothing, or maybe it’ll make a difference.)

  11. angelfish

    March 12, 2015 at 2:49 PM

    “Boycotting” the show and then going on message boards to proclaim your stance, always has the ring of “I’m so much better than you because I won’t lower myself to watch such trash/crying girls/boring guy”.

    Why bother even talking about it or reading about it if it’s beneath you? If you come here to comment, SOMETHING about it attracts you.

    It’s like proclaiming you don’t eat chocolate, but you greedily lick the wrapper.

  12. fcew

    March 12, 2015 at 3:00 PM

    What elizabeth82 said. I only started watching because I heard that Juan Pablo was a d-bag, and got dumped by three girls, which apparently is a lot for the Bachelor franchise. I hadn’t watched since Trista went on The Bachelorette. I watched Andi, but didnt find her very interesting, but I liked Chris. So I watched his season. I’m invested enough in Kaitlyn and her story (plus I think she is hysterical) to watch her show, but I will vote with my viewing if Britt is on – my husband would be super relieved to hear that I wasn’t watching this next season and am giving the franchise a break. I’m not doing it to be vindictive, I’m doing it because I don’t give two poos about Britt or her character finding “lurve”. I’d rather watch paint dry.

  13. vessel

    March 12, 2015 at 3:48 PM

    Yeah I agree that many people pick and choose who they watch based on if they like them or think they’ll be interesting. The only lunatics are the ones who proclaim “I won’t be watching if ______ is cast!” on social media actually believing ABC cares and might be influenced by this. I know they’re not. And yeah it’s doubtful I’ll watch if it’s Britt. I’ll still read here and I Hate Greenbeans, etc. but why watch someone who irritates you two hours every week? I slogged through Desiree’s season and wished I hadn’t wasted my time. Why make that mistake again unless the lead is someone likable to me? I might change my mind if I read that it’s a really good season despite her, though. We shall see.

    Former Fat Friend,
    What about a swimming/beach/boating date of some kind early in your relationship where you wear a swim suit that doesn’t hide what he might “need” to see. He can make an informed decision before feelings get too strong, and you might get a good indication just from his body language where his mind might be and either be able to open yourself up more to him, or brace for the brush-off.
    Another thing I would suggest is to keep an open mind when it comes to the men you choose to date. I am sure that there are just as many excellent guys out there who can check off all your boxes except for some equally superficial thing, such as age, height, or hair loss that becomes far less important once you get to know them.

    March 12, 2015 at 4:25 PM

    @vessel, completely agree. I was so bored watching Des’s season that I tuned out until the very end. I will watch the bachelor no matter who it is because the women bring the entertainment & drama. Not the case with the men on the Bachelorette. I won’t be boycotting the show if Britt is chosen, will just choose not to watch. I don’t think that makes me lunatic fringe for not watching someone I find extremely annoying.

    March 12, 2015 at 6:35 PM

    @ Confused in Miami: so glad to hear that you are moving on. I know it’s really, really hard, particularly because you were head over heels with him. My advice: be kind to yourself, allow yourself to mourn/grieve the end of the relationship so that you are ready to put it in your past and move forward with someone else. He may divorce and look for you in the near future, you never know, but if that happens, at least he didn’t divorce because of you, otherwise he will forever bring it up during fights. You deserve a single man who is for you and only for you, you will find him.
    Google how to get over a breakup/mend a broken heart, there are plenty of links from psychology magazines, etc and I think they are pretty good. They will tell you to do things that you used enjoy and they have suggestions on how to go through this process. Good luck!

    Like I mentioned earlier, I wish we didn’t have Bachelorette shows. Men are infinitely more interesting The only season I liked was Trista’s. These people profess to boycott a season with Britt but they sure tuned in every week to see what she would do next. Kaitlin is as boring as Andi was.

  18. cjscjs711

    March 12, 2015 at 8:21 PM

    Kaitlyn’s supporters have reason to be upset – they thought their girl had it in the bag, then ABC threw this curve. And so they express their complaints. Now their candidate could lose!

    Britt’s supporters are not so upset! Their girl is getting a chance. Not so motivated to write.

    How many times did we read, “If they choose Chris instead of Arie, I won’t watch!” How many times and how vehemently? A lot. These are threats and they apparently don’t matter. No matter who is chosen, a LOT of people will be upset. And look at Chris’ season – it was the women who ‘made’ the season. Him, his personality, barely at all.

    Why would there be weeks filled with crying if Britt were Bachelorette? If someone hurts Britt’s feelings, she can just send him home. There will be no other women there to act like they’re her friends to her face, then try to sabotage her behind her back. She’ll be the ONLY woman after night one.

    She cried more about the women’s duplicity toward her than losing Chris. I felt for her. In most cases, it was Chris the women had an issue with but unlike her, they did not confront him with it. Instead, they showed their hostility not to him but to her. When Britt had an issue with Chris about Kaitlyn taking her bottoms off, she went to him about it. Knowing it was a risk.

    She had trouble with the format. She said it at least twice: Chris would seem to have a deep connection with her, then turn to someone else and connect with her. First time she said it to him was on that first night of extreme girl-kissing/saliva swapping by Chris. It was not realistic on her part to think he could keep giving the rose on group dates to her, given the show’s requirement to string everyone along for the ride for as long as possible.

    I’ll watch either way, but my first impression was to like Britt and thinking about it overall, I still do. Kaitlyn is the non-threatening, gal pal, but not even very romantic and pretty guarded with her feelings, unless it’s humor. Do I look forward to a season of her over-done laughing at off-color jokes and remarks (ala Jimmy Kimmel’s)? NO. I’d rather watch Britt, but I’ll be there either way…

    March 12, 2015 at 8:27 PM

    I still stand by what I said on a different post: if Britt is cast as the lead, i will not watch this season. Like others said above, why would I waste two hours every Monday to watch someone I can’t stand? I have ended friendships IRL with people whose personality clashes with mine. I certainly won’t be “entertained” by a total stranger for an entire season that falls in the category of a toxic individual. @rob22, it actually would make me a nut bag for subjecting myself to the torture, not staying away from it. duh

    i don’t know why Steve Carbone has a hard on for britt… on wait, i do.. that is why he is single! i love his blog and commentary, but honestly, every season he seems to like a certain type. It is not a big deal, but he needs to realize that maybe if he found a different type of girl he wouldn’t be 40 and single. Kaitlyn is hilarious and my husband and I always find her the best. I actually don’t find Britt attractive in the slightest. Her head is too big, weird body, boring personality and too hippiesh for me. She does have great hair, so +6 on that!!! Good luck Steve, but I think many people will agree with me that Kaitlyn is petite, but with muscle. Pretty face, great personality… her hair may not be the best, but her style is on point!
    have fun at your 40th and I wish you luck as you enter the next 10years of your life. You say you are into sports and watch basketball/football yet you are not into the type of girl that you can kick it with!

    I do find the posters here to be a rational group, able to calmly state their views without attacking others that don’t feel the same way. There are some real nut job rabid fans on twitter & instagram. Yikes!
    I just watched Kimmel, and while interviewing Sean Penn, Sean admitted to being a bachelor fan, and he is team Kaitlyn! 🙂
    I have a feeling Kaitlyn will get the gig. The producers would be crazy not to go with the one *most* of the fans want. I guess we will know soon.

    As a guy, my perspective is that Britt seems to ‘not have grown up’ emotionally because its clear that she thinks its acceptable to either throw a hissy fit or cry every time something goes wrong in her life.

    This is a Big Red Flag for nearly every guy out there who is really looking for a long term partner.

    The only way that I think the new Bachelorette season’s guys might choose Britt over Kaitlyn is if (1) they didn’t watch the WTA or the last episode that Britt was on to get an idea of what she can be like when she’s not happy, (2) they are just on the show to promote themselves and have no interest in finding anyone for a LTR so they might as well pick the woman who flirts better, (3) they’re tools who will do whatever they’re told to do by the producers, and are told to pick Britt.

    I don’t think Britt is bad, per se. Its just that somehow she never developed the character to realize when its ok to show you’re upset, and when its better to keep things a bit under wraps even when you’re having a bad time. Imagine the horror this show would have been had there been 25 women who ALL cry as readily as Britt did when she got upset…yikes.

    I’m not sure I understand why people are saying there is so much support for Kaitlyn. I see so much MORE support for Britt! The things people are saying about Britt make for GREAT television and ratings. Regardless of whether you like her or not the show needs her. Kaitlyn will not get good ratings. Do you really think Sean Penn is going to watch the show? HELLO!!!!!!!!

    There is no way to predict what kind of ratings Kaitlyn, or Britt would get. To make assumptions based on personal preference is really kind of silly.

    guys, dont forget, steve doesnt read these comments. this forum is just for us to discuss. youll have to email him to get his attention. and i think kaitlyn will bring ratings. of course she will. heres a topic for discusion: with all the public support for kaitlyn (anna kendrick, sean penn, sean lowe, etc, etc) and the studio audience at the after the final rose cheering for kaitlyn and even booking britt, how could abc not put kaitlyn in the role. theyll create a very negative feeling in their viewers which theyve never done before a season even started. heres the question. i wonder if abc didnt contractually promise the role to britt (seems obvious after the first episode that she was cast as the next bachelorette) and then try to rescind once they saw her performance on the show and viewer reaction, but couldnt legally. so their way out of having britt is this duel bachelorette idea in which both girls get paid whether they are chosen or not. ill email steve about this too.

    Trust me @mush…..Steve reads the comments despite what he may claim.

    Steve may read the comments, but he’s never blocked any posters, censored or berated anybody for what they put here in the comments section.

    Now mocking and insulting the emails he gets is a different story. One of the reasons I’m a huge fan!

    @Mush it’s an interesting idea, please definitely email Steve. I’d like to hear his opinion on that.

    Mush – I tend to think the opposite based on Kaitlyn’s comment “it’s not ideal” and Britt seemed so happy

    I don’t see the survey with the 25 men credible. The men that are going on the show are looking for wife material. They should interview 25 men that are ready to settle down. As Kaitlyn getting the popularity vote from celebs. I don’t think they are credible either. For example; Ana Kendrick has 375mil followers on tweeter, but only 14k people favorite her tweet for #TeamKaitlyn. That doesn’t represent the whole bachelor nation. Which looking at ratings is about 6-8 million viewers. I feel it’s more like a clique for the Kaitlyn campaign people are just solely agreeing with all these popular people to bash someone.

    I don’t think Britt deserve all that hate. They are both beautiful and strong women. They wouldn’t have signed up for it if they couldn’t handle the rejection or the controversy against them. I hope Britt gets the gig. I want to see if she will be able to represent herself in a better light or see if confirms the judgement people say that she is fake. With more footage of her as the Bachelorette.

    As for Kaitlyn, yeah she’s fun, but that’s all I see fun. I don’t think she can hold her own on the show. Especially with 25 men. With Chris season she only got to where she got due to promise of sexual innuendo. Her comments “you can plow me anytime” and pulling off her bikini bottom only shows the immaturity. I didn’t even know who Kaitlyn was up until she became the final 3. Chris only wanted sex with her in the FS. He didn’t care about her feelings. To take her aside and talk to her like he took Becca aside. Don’t get me wrong I love Kaitlyn style and her joking nature, but I don’t see her falling in love and opening up to the guys.

    Kaitlyn kind of messed it up for herself. Getting too cocky. Setting up photoshoots to make her look like she’s already bachelorette before the announcement. She seems too entitled to that role which is due to all the press she’s getting for it. I feel Britt was gracious and appreciative for the opportunity. She seems more humble than Kaitlyn. Who’s just spiteful and even bitter. She haven’t moved on and let go of the last season with Chris regarding the stunts Britt pulled when it came to her. Britt needs to be more self aware of her actions, but she did apologize. She’s the type to speak before thinking. Her jumping and cutting people off mid sentence. Doesn’t show maturity either.

    kaitlyn did what the producers told her to do, photoshoots. she tweeted what the producers told her to tweet. people magazine or whoever did the photos tweeted out a pic of her photoshoot. how is any of this kaityn being cocky? so strange. and britt is NOT humble. so many reasons why she isnt, but i just cant bother anymore about britt.

    I know Steve is offline, but does anyone remember the fictional show that is going to be about the bachelor behind the scenes? He posted it a month or so ago, and I can’t comb through posts to find it. I want to make sure and bookmark that – not sure when it is airing. It was about the same time he introduced the DRATCH.

    @angelfish posted “Steve may read the comments, but he’s never blocked any posters, censored or berated anybody for what they put here in the comments ”

    How would we know if Steve blocks people since they would no longer be able to post? He in fact did block a friend of mine and claimed the only way he knew she was saying rude comments about him was because other readers were “complaining” and his “moderator” pointed it out.

    Regardless of what he says he does…..getting kicked off this site was certainly good for a few laughs.

    Not true at all, I received a personal email from Steve asking me not to post certain things. So, he or his moderator read the post, forwarded it to Steve and I received the “request”. Don’t assume you know everything @angelfish.

    Steve pretty much has to claim he doesn’t read these comments, otherwise he’d subject himself to questions and answers via the comment board and it would add another layer of communication that he doesn’t want…..understandably.

    Having said that, to think any blogger or Steve doesn’t read the comments is naive. There is no other way to gauge the temperature of your writing or gather feedback on tone. Steve reads these comments….no doubt. And there’s no “moderator” either…..but it does tickle me that he claims there is one.
