So I didn’t want to go down the whole list of guys who’s Instagram followers I posted yesterday, since the only one most people are talking about today is Chad. Just since yesterday morning, he’s gained another 4,500 followers. You’re welcome Chad. You can send your money via PayPal. That’s what this has turned into now. Who can gain the most popularity on the show, and who can take that popularity on social media and turn it in to something worthwhile? I’m sure Chad is doing whatever he can to stay relevant for the next week while he’s still on the show. Of course, there’s BIP as well, which I’m pretty sure he’ll end up going on as well. You know, producers will give him the ol’ “Hey, you can be the JJ of this season where you totally redeem your character,” all while not giving a crap in the world whether or not he redeems himself, they just want to make dramatic television. I’m sure Chad will fall for it since his creatine filled brain doesn’t know any better. I can say it til I’m blue in the face, but I know the contestants won’t listen to me. The producers are not your friends. Stop it. Oh sure, they’ll pretend to be your friends during filming and maybe shortly thereafter, but c’mon. They are soulless slimeballs who’d sell their own mother down the river if it meant getting a good soundbite. They don’t care about you. Trust me.
Speaking of Chad, US Weekly wasted no time in promoting next week’s Chad-filled episodes with this clip where Chad compares JoJo to riding a Harley. The guy is just gonna keep digging a deeper and deeper hole. Like I said yesterday, thank God they are doubling up next week so his TV time isn’t extended an extra week. Good riddance, Chad. See you in Paradise for your laughable “redemption” story.
Speaking of that TV schedule, with them doubling up next week and no new episode on June 13th, I wonder if this means they’re still gonna take another Monday off in July since July 4th is on a Monday. Last time the 4th fell on a Monday was Ali’s season, and they ran a repeat episode that night. Are they gonna have to double up again somewhere else? I haven’t heard anything yet, but when I do, I’ll be sure to mention it. I can’t imagine them airing a new episode on the 4th of July. That’s a night where most people are spending out. You’re setting yourself up for failure by airing a new episode. Not to mention, the current schedule would have that being episode 7, the episode right before hometowns. I’d be stunned if it aired that night. That’s too important of an episode to get shown on a holiday.
I tweeted this out yesterday but in case you missed it, Courtney Robertson interviewed Olivia Caridi for her new blog. Interesting read. Props go out to Olivia for resisting the temptation of going on BIP. They definitely wanted her and were pitching her hard, but in the end, she decided against it. Probably a smart thing. Would basically make everything she’s said post-show rather pointless if she complained about bullying and death threats since her time on Ben’s season, only to turn right around and go back and do Paradise. So good thing she turned it down.
And finally, get your “Dr. Reality Steve” emails in for tomorrow. Right now we have four. I’m shooting for 8-10. If we don’t hit that number, I’m sending you all to bed without dinner. So there. Get on it. Enjoy your “Reader Emails…”
