Finally we get some action in “Bachelor” filming yesterday. Not hours after someone tweeted at me asking for more information and I responded with this being the least public season that I can remember in at least the last 5 years, Colton is seen on a 1-on-1 date yesterday in downtown Denver for episode 7, the episode before hometowns. And it just so happened to be with one of the 5 women I hadn’t released yet. So now you have 26 of the 30. I’ve got the other four women I will release within the next week or so. Just curious to see how everything plays out in Denver. Like I’ve said, it’s hit or miss in terms of pictures/videos when they’re traveling overseas. Sometimes I get a ton of stuff, sometimes I get very little. When Arie was in Paris and Italy last year, you pretty much knew every date. Tons of pics and videos got out. Outside of the group date picture in Singapore, there were no other dates that got out publicly in episodes 4-6 for Colton. Which I always say is good for me because when I release the spoilers, you’ll be hearing it for the first time. I’ve got all your eliminations up to this point, and only missing a couple dates. You’ll get it all eventually like you always do.
Episode 8 of the “He Said, She Said” podcast with Ashley Spivey is now up for your listening pleasure. Another good one if you ask me. Two very different and interesting calls. If you want to be a part of an episode in the future, just email/DM myself or Ashley, let us know what time zone you’re in, when the best time for you to record is, and we’ll work out a way to get it recorded. This show has been a lot of fun and it will continue to be released every other Tuesday.
You can listen to today’s podcast on a number of platforms, but you can also tune in by clicking the player below:
In Episode 8, Ashley and I begin the podcast by talking about the complicated issue of is it possible to be friends with your ex when you’re in a new relationship. Dana in Tampa is our first caller and she talks about her mother’s drinking which is starting to interfere in her life (10:59). Then Marissa in North Carolina joins us to talk about her older boyfriend that she moved in with a few months ago whose attitude seems to have changed (35:41). Original theme music provided by Kate Bass and the song is titled “Blink.”
As mentioned above, Colton had a 1-on-1 yesterday with someone I hadn’t released to you yet. Well now you know who she is:
(SPOILER): Colton’s 1-on-1 date today in Denver was with someone I hadn’t released to you yet, Tayshia Adams. They were walking around Union Station with his dog Sniper and got ice cream. This pic is at Milk Market. Tayshia is 28 and lives in Orange County, CA. pic.twitter.com/sLuUlGHVPr

I had some other pictures of them walking around Union Station, but they came third hand and I haven’t gotten permission from the original picture taker yet. If I do, I’ll post them. If not, oh well. Nothing too revealing. Just them sitting in a shop, then walking around outside with ice cream all while walking Colton’s dog. I’m sure now that they’re in Denver, more dates will get out. As long as they’re in public anywhere, it’s almost impossible for them not to be seen. I’ll keep you updated on Twitter today if any new pictures or video get out.
One other thing I tweeted about yesterday was the “controversy” regarding Caelynn and Miss North Carolina USA. As you know, I reported last week she wouldn’t be there this past weekend to crown her successor. Well, apparently that has a lot of people in the pageant industry up in arms. I know this because I was shown some of the posts being made on a private FB group, and the posts weren’t being made by just random fans. They were being made by former winners of the pageant who have held the exact crown she currently has. Words like “disrespectful,” “integrity,” “respect,” and “distasteful.” It’s actually kinda fascinating. I’m not the least bit involved in the pageant world, so something like this would never be on my radar if a reigning titleholder wasn’t at the next year’s pageant to crown her successor. But in that world, apparently this is a big deal, and Caelynn choosing a TV show over fulfilling her responsibilities is not sitting well with a lot of people. And not to mention, this will definitely be a storyline on Colton’s season going forward.
Now, on the flip side, we don’t know Caelynn’s side yet. My guess is she just decided to do the show knowing she wouldn’t be able to make Miss NC USA this past weekend. Simple. However, for the sake of giving her the benefit of the doubt, there are a couple reasons that I can think of as to why she wouldn’t be there:
1) She never thought she’d last that long on the show and would be back in time
2) She was told even if she was still on the show, they’d let her attend
So once this is all said and done, I’d be interested in hearing what she has to say about why she didn’t attend Miss NC USA this past weekend. If she knew from the moment she left for filming that if she lasted that long she couldn’t do it and she made that choice to do the show over the pageant, well, then know she’s being criticized heavily in that world. If she was lied to by production and they told her she would, but then reneged on it, then that sucks for her since she’d be getting undue hate thrown her way. Both are possibilities and we don’t know until we hear from her, which I’m guessing won’t be for a while since contestants aren’t allowed to do interviews while the show is airing. Stay tuned.
