Ok, lets be honest. The only interesting part of last night’s show happened from the rose ceremony on. We already knew who was going to be the “Bachelorette” and was there really anything at the cocktail party that stood out? No. But, once the rose ceremony started, that’s where the interest in the show was and has everyone talking today. One thing I want to address before going into that was I said last night on Twitter I had something interesting to share with you today regarding the first night. As we saw, they split up Monday and Tuesday’s night’s premiere making you think it all happened in one night. Limo entrances, guys get the cocktail party, they vote, then Kaitlyn has her own cocktail party and rose ceremony, and that was it. Wrong. Didn’t happen that way.
What we saw on Monday was a mish mash of two nights of filming – Thursday March 12th, and Friday March 13th. On Thursday, they filmed the limo entrances and the cocktail party. They never voted on Thursday night. They sent the guys back to their hotel to sleep, then everyone came back the next night in the exact same outfits to make it seem like it was one long continuous night. However if you re-watch Monday’s episode closely, some of the guys you can tell look a little different in their ITM’s even though they’re in the same outfit and it’s supposed to be all the same night. So the first night (Thursday, March 12th) they do the limo entrances and cocktail party that went til late into Friday morning. No voting happened. Guys go home, sleep, wake up, put same suits back on, head back to the mansion (Friday, March 13th) do more cocktail party with both girls, then they vote, Kaitlyn is announced, her cocktail party begins and they film til 6 or 7am when her rose ceremony ends.
So you’re probably asking, “What about McDill?” Yes. He got hammered BOTH nights. Hence the reason there was much more footage they never showed because it apparently got really bad. Just vulgar to everyone including the girls. So anytime you saw the cocktail party with both girls there, that could’ve been footage from Thursday OR Friday night. When it was the cocktail party of just Kaitlyn and the guys, that was just footage from Friday night into Saturday morning. I went back and watched a little and you can tell that stuff we saw on Monday’s episode (filmed Thurs 3/12 and Fri 3/13), especially some of the ITM’s, weren’t all done on the same night. Usually the first night starts around 9pm and ends at 5am or 6am. This season, BOTH Thursday and Friday’s tapings went long. Semantics, but figured you’d be interested.
Now, onto what everyone wants to talk about and that’s the season preview. In case you missed it, thanks to Zap2it.com, they posted the season trailer to their site:
Once this aired and America started freaking out and immediately blew up my Twitter with “Who did Kaitlyn sleep with,” I tweeted out that it was with Nick and she told the guys about it. That was partially right. I’ve known a couple weeks she slept with Nick before the overnight dates, hence the reason I alluded to it a couple times in yesterday’s column. But as I said in the first paragraph today, I had no idea they were gonna even show Nick in the season preview, let alone get into the sex stuff. I just figured we’d get quick shots of guys heads turning and then maybe a silhouette of a guy entering the show. So once they let it all out there in the preview, figured there’s no sense in keeping it to myself. Even though the preview doesn’t exactly allude to who it’s with, I can tell you the person she’s referencing have sex with is Nick. It happened on their date in Ireland.
However, the tricky editing will have you believe that sometime afterwards, she sat all the remaining guys down and told them. That didn’t happen. She never told any of the guys. I had heard about the sex between Kaitlyn and Nick which I knew to be true, but then had heard she admitted it in an ITM. That wasn’t 100% confirmed so I held onto it. Now after seeing the preview, what you hear is a voice over of Kaitlyn saying “we had sex,” which was from an ITM of her talking about it, not admitting it to the guys. They did not know. Just like none of the girls on Ben’s season had a clue he went skinny dipping with Courtney until the first teaser for the season ran, I’m sure last night was the first time any of the guys knew she slept with Nick during the show. I’m sure that makes them feel all warm and fuzzy inside. So yes, the editing makes you think she tells them. She didn’t. So I apologize for tweeting that out last night and also mentioning it during my interview this morning on the “Kidd Kraddick Morning Show.” Part of the reason why my column is a little late today as I’ve been speaking to a few sources this morning getting this straightened out. So it will be revealed she slept with Nick, but only in an ITM, not to the rest of the guys.
And when you think about that logically, it makes the most sense as well. Who the hell would stick around on that show knowing she slept with Nick the first 1-on-1 date she had? Look at Chris Harrison’s TVGuide.com interview today where the interviewer specifically says “Kaitlyn tells the guys,” and Chris really doesn’t acknowledge that part of the question. He dances around it and then switches to talking about the type of person Kaitlyn is. It makes no sense for Kaitlyn to tell them, nor would it make sense for any of them to even stick around after that thinking they had a chance if she did. Hope that clears it up for you.
Here was my interview this morning with the “Kidd Kraddick in the Morning” show:
Of course now this brings us to the consequences of this action, which will no doubt dominate the tabloid headlines once we get deeper into the season. I believe the kiddies nowadays call is slut shaming. Right or wrong, fair or not, that’s what this is gonna turn into. There are plenty of moral police out there who think no man and woman should have sex until they’re in a committed relationship, and a woman should value sex more than to just throw it around casually. Those people are entitled to their opinions. I don’t happen to agree with it, but we know it’s out there and it’s a double standard. You hear Kaitlyn even saying in the preview she doesn’t think it makes her a bad person. In her eyes, it doesn’t. In other people’s eyes, it most definitely will. I hope she has thick skin.
As for me, of course I’m going to allude to it any chance I can get, but do I think what they did was wrong? Of course not. Maybe in the context of this show it wasn’t fair to the other guys, but if you’re signing up for this show hoping for fairness, then you’re a moron. This is a show predicated on good looking people dating and hooking up and seeing if there’s a relationship in the future. If Kaitlyn decides that’s the way she wanted her relationship to go with Nick, they’re both accountable for what they did, and they’ll both deal with the repercussions from it. I’ll make jokes not because I think what they did was wrong, but because it’s what I do. Others will condemn them to hell for it because they are lunatics. You make your own bed, now both of them must lie in it. Naked, of course. I just find it awfully ironic that Nick told us last season after the Andi fiasco that sex to him is like “fiancé stuff,” then yet lays pipe to Kaitlyn, a girl he’s been flirting with for months the second he gets a chance to. I wonder how the Nick crazies are gonna defend their golden boy now? He’s phony, he’s an attention seeker, and he loves everything about being on this show and the franchise – even though he said he was moving on from it after last season. Sure you weren’t, buddy.
As for the show ending the way it did last night with Brady appearing at Britt’s hotel room door, well, she certainly didn’t want to spill anything about it when she was on Kimmel last night:
But as we all know if you’ve been on this site in the last two months, I’ve exclusively spoiled two times Britt and Brady have been together without cameras. Once was the weekend of April 10th in Nashville, TN with Brady’s siblings, and another was on Saturday, May 2nd in Cardiff by the Sea, CA with one of Brady’s friends. Next week it looks like we’ll get an update on the show of what happened to Britt and Brady immediately following him knocking on her hotel door. Just keep in mind when watching that, that nothing on this show happens spontaneously or organically. We know from Brady’s intro video to everything he said the first night he was there for Britt. Once Kaitlyn was named the “Bachelorette,” you know damn well producers concocted this storyline of having Brady date Britt off camera. Hell, they probably had it in their minds from the second they cast him knowing this is what they would do with him. Jonathan was all about Britt. Why didn’t he eliminate himself to date her? Or any of the other 10 or 11 guys who allegedly wanted her? Because this plan was in place well before the show started.
The best part is, Britt and Brady might actually work since they’ve been dating like a normal couple for the most part away from cameras and have lasted two months. We know she’s met family. We saw the pictures. So it’s safe to say that things are going well between them. We’ll see how much of the relationship will be shown, and you’ll see in a few “Reader Emails” this week of people asking if I think there’ll be a proposal at the ATFR. I’ll tell you this much: I GUARANTEE they are begging Brady to propose to her at the end of this thing. And I’m sure there’ll be monetary incentive him to do it. The question is will he? That I don’t know. Going to be one interesting season I tell ya’. Enjoy your “Reader Emails”…
