The 3rd Annual Reality Steve Fan Appreciation Party is officially set. It will take place Friday, June 9th at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. As much as I tried to change venues this year, Mandalay still offered me the best deal, so we’re going back again. Those who aren’t familiar, this is open to anyone who wants to come, but I do have about a 60-65 person limit in that room. So it’s first come first serve. If you want to attend, but are coming in from out-of-state, your guarantee to be on the confirmed list is to email me your flight itinerary. I assume people wouldn’t flake if they purchase a flight. If you are driving or live close and you want in, email me your hotel booking. Preference at first will go to people who are flying in from out of state, so if you’re gonna do that, I would suggest doing that rather soon. The last couple years we were at capacity within a couple weeks of me posting. I can tell you right now already a little over a 1/3 of the spots have been booked. All I ask is that if you say you’re coming and you’re on the confirmed list, that you please don’t flake because if you say you’re in, then you aren’t, you were possibly holding up a spot for others. You can stay at whatever hotel you want, but if you are interested in staying at Mandalay Bay, in your email let me know and I will have information on a discounted room rate that you can use. Those rates change often and looking at the prices I can get you vs if you book online as of right now, it’s about 30% off. If you want those prices, let me know in your email. So if you want in, email me ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org, and let me know how many people are coming, their full names, and if there’s flight info, send me your itinerary once it’s booked.
The party is an annual event I hold as a thank you to those that make the site successful. There will be appetizers, open bar, and the Reality Steve Trivia Contest where prizes are given out. First year it was restaurant gift cards within Mandalay, last year it was casino chips. Not sure what this year will be yet. In addition, I am working on possible Bachelor people to make an appearance. But as you know, it’s tough. One thing to get them on a podcast which is just a phone call. Another thing to publicly promote them at a party Reality Steve is throwing. I’ve already had one not be able to attend due to the whole “Reality Steve” thing. And I get it as some just don’t want to burn any bridges, but yeah, you can see the problem I’m running into. We have four months, and I do think I’ll be able to get someone from the franchise to show up. I just don’t know who yet. I’ll keep you updated. Anyway, I can tell you that at least one person from the reality TV world who said she’s in, and that’s Brandi Redmond from “Real Housewives of Dallas.” RHOD season 2 starts airing around that time, but as of now, she’s in. And oh yeah, my mom will be there again this year as well as my niece Olivia. It should be a good time. I think most people liked it the first two years and hopefully this one will be just as good. Look forward to seeing everyone who can make it.
Get your “Reader Emails” in for tomorrow. We are kinda low right now. Also, definitely get your “Dr. Reality Steve” in for Thursday. Also very low. I had this week’s podcast guest text me and cancel this morning, so I’m in a bit of a scramble to get someone. There will definitely be a podcast come Thursday, just not sure yet who will be on it. And yes, I sometimes it’s very frustrating having to deal with these contestants. Hopefully this person who cancelled today was just a postponement and we’ll have them on at a later date. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
Wanted to point out a correction in the spoiler for next week. In the episode-by-episode spoilers I posted in the beginning of the season, I said that in St. Thomas (next week) is where Corinne sneaks over to Nick’s room to try and have sex with him and he turns down her advances. Had the wrong location. It’s in Bimini, the episode 7 (Feb. 13th) episode. My mistake. Hey, sometimes you get minor details wrong. Doesn’t change anything in terms of the remaining spoilers, dates, roses, eliminations, etc. Just had the wrong episode. My mistake. Well, technically a sources mistake but it’s on me since I’m the one that prints it. I think you’ll get over it.
Our own Nell Kalter has your Vanderpump Rules recap now up to view. I don’t watch that show but isn’t that a show where Corinne would totally fit in? Isn’t that like right up her alley? Or is it being a background skank in rapper videos? Whatever the case, if you think we’ve seen the last of Corinne once this show is over, forget it. She’s just getting started. Recording “Ellen” today which will be shown tomorrow, will be the talk of the “Women Tell All,” and no doubt be on BIP.
Nick’s ex who they magically “ran” into during his Wisconsin date with Danielle, went on a local Milwaukee radio station after the fact to talk about everything that went down. Pretty much like you’d expect. They cut out basically everything and it was essentially scripted from the get go:
I tweeted this out at the end of last week, but it’s definitely worth mentioning again. They’ve released some of the male suitors for season 3 of UnREAL since “Everlasting” will have a female lead this time around. Did you catch who one of the men is? That’s right, former Donna Martin ex-boyfriend from senior year, QB of the CU football team, and all around pansy, Joe Bradley! We all remember Joe. Virgin, had that heart ailment that prevented him from continuing to play football, was jealous of David and Donna’s relationship, so he decided he wanted to move back to Beaver Falls, PA and be a high school football coach with his brother, asked Donna to go with him, and she basically had zero interest in that, right? Yeah, now he’s back with a full head of gray hair and trying to woo the newest “Everlasting” female suitor. I cannot wait til Donna finds out about this and flips her sh**. And if Ray Pruit shows up somehow, I just might call this the greatest reality TV dating show of all time.
Ratings are in from last night and they are a tad down from last week, as last night drew 7.2 million viewers and a 2.3 rating vs last week’s 7.3 million and 2.4 rating. Ben’s 5th episode last season drew 7.4 million and a 2.2 rating. So things are sailing along as expected. Not the best, but certainly not the worst.
Both blogs are already up, as Chris Harrison actually had something relevant to say in his blog when he talked about Corinne’s strategy. I’m dumbfound by not only Chris, but also Nick’s blog where he went out of his away to defend Corinne over Taylor. Mind blowing. You’ll see what I’m talking about on page 2.
Today’s poll question is about Rachel. I asked about Vanessa two weeks ago, then Raven last week, and now that Rachel’s had her 1-on-1, your thoughts:
