“Daily Links” is getting pushed back until tomorrow. I mean, I know we’re still all in mourning over Zayn leaving “One Direction,” but it’ll be ok. I think. I frankly don’t know what I’m gonna do with myself, but hey, that’s just me. When one of the most popular boy bands ever loses it’s probably least talked about guy, that’s big time news. However, the “Bachelorette” comes first and after getting news late last night and early this morning, I’m putting “Daily Links” on the back burner until tomorrow. I mentioned to you yesterday that I was working on something pretty big and would let you know if it was true. Well, I believed it to be true, then events happened yesterday afternoon which made me think it wasn’t true, and then stuff happened last night which all but confirmed it. I don’t think it’s too hard to figure out at this point if you were following along with my tweets yesterday during the rap battle group date, but in case you weren’t, here is a quick rundown of yesterday’s date at Studio48 in Midtown:
-There were 8 guys on the date (some I’ve revealed to you, some I haven’t). It was a rap battle with Doug E. Fresh as the moderator. Four 1-on-1 “battles” with the “winner” chosen by the audience
-The guys that were on the date that you know about are Corey, JJ, Ryan B., and Tanner. The other 4 I will give you later, one of which is a black guy. Yes, we have a black guy that’s made it to episode 4! And no, it’s not the black guy from the boxing group date either
-Kaitlyn warmed things up by rapping first and managed to rhyme sh*t with Britt
-Ashley I., Nick V., and Sharleen were all in attendance just watching
-JJ and Clint had some serious bromance going on this season since a lot of the guys seemed to reference it in their raps, including Kaitlyn. Clint was eliminated last rose ceremony
-JJ got boo’ed by the audience after working a Duke Lacrosse rape joke into his rap vs Corey. He also called him “Patrick Bateman” from the “Psycho” movies. Yeah, Corey kinda does look like Christian Bale a little bit
-Consensus was that Corey was the best rapper of the night. Dressed the part. Wore a beanie. Tucked his shirt into his underwear as you can see in this pic:

So that was the gist of what happened in the rap battles. I will have who rapped off against who and who “won” each battle once I release the names and bios of the other 4 guys I know about.
Now, lets get to the news that has been swirling for two days. I’ll let you know how it all came about. Tuesday night I was told that Nick Viall was gonna go join Kaitlyn’s season. It was the first I heard of it, which is why yesterday I said I was working on something, and I was gonna see if it was true or not. Then yesterday, Nick was at the group date with Ashley I. and Sharleen sitting in the back just watching, so I thought maybe the info I had was technically wrong. Yeah, he was on Kaitlyn’s season, but he was actually just there to watch one of the date. So even though I thought it was weird he was there to watch a date, I didn’t think he was actually entering as a contestant on the show because they sure as hell weren’t trying to hide him. Nick was taking pictures with fans after the taping. Also this morning, a radio host on 99.1 The Mix in Milwaukee named Elizabeth reported that she heard from a “reliable source,” that Nick was obsessed with Kaitlyn and was going on the show to ask her to date him.
Last night, I received word (and pictures) that Nick was filming alone with Kaitlyn at Chelsea Piers and they were definitely making out. Here’s pictures of Nick with producer Elan and then him with Kaitlyn. Obviously you can’t see them making out, but I trust my source to know what they saw. Nick and Kaitlyn were making out:
Every time in the past when we’ve seen a contestant enter late (minus Byron’s season), or a contestant come back after being eliminated, the lead always gives the “it just wouldn’t be fair to the other people” speech and sends them on their way. We saw Ben do it with Shawntel when she showed up in San Francisco in episode 3, we saw Andi shoot down Chris Bukowski’s advances in her first episode, and we saw Chris do it last season when Jordan tried to return in New Mexico. Well apparently that wasn’t the case for Kaitlyn as she was sucking face with the guy at Chelsea Piers last night, so the hell with the guys already there. Nice Kaitlyn. I’m sure the guys are gonna love that. Whatever the case, that’s where we’re at. I mean, it sure as hell seems like Nick is a contestant on the show now if he’s seen being filmed making out with her. I’m just putting two and two together here. He wanted on the show to ask to date her, and then they’re seen making out alone while being filmed, so it sure looks and sounds like Kaitlyn is up for it.
I just don’t know what the point of having him show up at the group date was, but that’s a discussion for another time. My guess is at the group date, none of the guys saw him anyway, and Nick made his appearance at the after party, pulled Kaitlyn aside to tell her he was interested in dating her, then jammed his tongue down her throat and now it’s on like Donkey Kong. It’s just funny to me after everything Nick put himself through in Andi’s season, and the embarrassment of the plane videos that I got, then him calling Andi out for making love to him in the fantasy suite only to then dump him, I can’t believe he’s going back to do this. But hey, not my life. A quick look at his Twitter account clearly shows this guy has had a hard on for Kaitlyn ever since Chris’ season. He’s made that well known. But to actually act upon it? Oh boy. Things just got interesting.
As we know, filming is in New York right now. They are at the Knickerbocker Hotel in Times Square, so anyone that wants to go stalk them, be my guest. When I reported about New York a couple weeks ago, I assumed they were going to NY because they’d be heading overseas afterwards since 4 of the last 5 “Bachelorette” seasons, they did an East Coast city before heading over to Europe. That’s not the case this time. At least for their next stop it isn’t. After New York, filming for episode 5 next week will be in…San Antonio, TX. Shhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeooooooooottttt! “The stars at night, are big and bright, (clap clap clap clap), deep in the heart of Texas!” They will be staying at the St. Anthony Hotel in downtown San Antonio. The hotel is currently under construction and isn’t really even open to the public until May 21st, but events/weddings are still being held there in the meantime. I’m guessing the Riverwalk and the Alamo are a couple of places they will film for dates. Please, please, please if someone gets a date at the Alamo, will you please ask where the basement is? Please? I don’t ask much. Just so I can hear the tour guide say, “There’s no basement at the Alamo” and then have the rest of the tourists laugh at you. You know, like what happened to Pee Wee when he was looking for his bike:
So there you go. Big day of info in “Bachelorette” land. Lets see where this Nick story takes us. If you enter the show in episode 4, you’re either getting sent home that night, or you’re gonna last a while. If Kaitlyn couldn’t keep her tongue out of his mouth, my guess is Nick is gonna be around a while, but we’ll see. Man, and he thought the guys on Andi’s season ganged up on him a lot? Just wait til they see Kaitlyn kept him around. Back tomorrow with “Daily Links.”
