Last night was one of the few times I was in CA when the show was airing. And not only that, I didn’t get to watch it when it aired because I was at my fantasy football draft. I’m not gonna bore you with draft stories or tell you all about my team. Just know my team is good and I’m going to win. So there. But getting back to the matter at hand, living in Texas and getting to watch the show live with the east coast is something that I apparently have never fully appreciated. I’d never want to live tweet the show a couple hours after over half of the US has already watched the episode. Just seems kinda pointless since so many opinions have already been thrown around about it and it’ll influence your tweets I would think. Having grown up on the west coast I never really had to deal with this since I was never there when social media was a huge thing. I moved to TX in 2006 and that was before Twitter and Instagram were even around or popular for that matter. I think Facebook was in its early stages. As much as I love the west coast, I’d hate being hours behind on shows people have already seen. That’d drive me nuts. Guess I’d have to make sure I got the east coast feed.
Nell Kalter has your RHOC recap now up for your reading pleasure. I think we might be in week 45 of this season, but hey, she’s still going strong writing about it so you might as well read it.
So according to Sean Lowe’s tweet last night, the next “Bachelor” is getting announced on “After Paradise” tonight, exactly like they did last season with Ben. I’ve told you for two months I expect it to be Luke, I haven’t heard any information that has been different than that since, so I expect him to be announced tonight. I’ve already gotten emails about people telling me Chase snapped this morning he was on a plane traveling, etc. Could there have been something that fell through last minute I’m not aware of? Sure. Has happened before (like Caila this past season). However, remember that last year on the announcement, they had Nick on stage and tried to fake everyone out coming back from commercial, so I wouldn’t put it past them to have Chase post that on purpose to throw people off. Or even have Chase thinking it’s him up to the last possible minute. Let me tell you, I’d be shocked if it was Chase. All my intel for the last 2 months has said it’s going to be Luke, and I have no reason to believe otherwise. Guess we’ll get our answer tonight.
Last week I tweeted about having some of the girls already for the next season, and just based purely on looks, some really attractive girls we’re gonna have. Obviously I don’t release them until after they leave for filming, so it’ll be a few weeks before you see them, but hey, I’m allowed to comment on a few. I have shared a couple of the girls with people from the franchise who’ve asked, so they’ve seen a couple, but just faces. I just don’t’ like giving stuff away like that, so they don’t know names. Even they seemed to like them. Also, people can get cut at the last minute and not make the final cast, that’s why I don’t release them until later. But I’m getting more and more as we get closer, so I’ll fill you in once I think it’s “safe” to do so like I do every season. I have already heard a potential location for next season for overnights and final rose ceremony that I’m trying to get confirmation on as well. If it is this place, it’s somewhere they’ve never been. But I have no idea when that’ll get confirmed.
For those who turned in Thursday night for the live chat, sorry about the technical issues but I couldn’t get the show to start and I tried everything. Crowdcast hasn’t been helpful and I’m sick of dealing with it, so unfortunately, there won’t be any more live chats for the foreseeable future. I’m going to start focusing on podcasting and hope to have that up and running when the “Bachelor” rolls around in January of 2017. Gonna start as a weekly podcast, then go from there to see if I want to add more.
Your poll question revolves around, who else? Josh. What’d you think of the meltdown last night?
