The Bachelorette 15 - Hannah

The “Bachelorette” Hannah – Episode 3 Recap, Tyler G., and “Bachelor in Paradise” Original Cast News

Photo Credit: ABC

With my birthday coming up this Friday, I’ve got some major news for you. This year I’m going big. Like, real big. I’ve never been a big birthday guy ever, but this year I’m like “F-it. Lets do the damn thing” (Ok, maybe I didn’t say it that way, but you get my point). After years of basically doing nothing on my birthday outside of my 40th, this year, it’s gettin’ turnt up. Lit. Raisin’ the roof, I tell ya’. Why? Because me and the family are going out to dinner at arguably one of the finest establishments in the area. You may have heard of it, but if not, I’ll give you a hint. It’s initials are “O-f***ing-G.” That’s right. Dinner at Olive Garden this Friday night and I couldn’t be more excited. I want the hat, I want them singing to me, and I want a free scoop of ice cream. Did I tell you I was a host at Olive Garden back in college for a summer? Well, I was and I owned it. I used to force the servers to tell me when they had a table that had a birthday because I wanted to come over and sing the song. It was “Hospitaliano” back then and I killed. Anyway, just thought you’d like to know what a baller I am when it comes to my birthday. I go all out, people.

Get your “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” emails in for this week as both are a little low right now. Tomorrow I’m going to give you the first story about one of Hannah’s guys this season, as told by a couple women he used to date. They contacted me, wanted to share their story, so I will let them and you will have it in full tomorrow with pictures and receipts. Both stories are well documented and quite descriptive. Like I said in the beginning of the season, these aren’t any criminal activities, or domestic violence cases or anything like that. But how about dudes just act like normal humans and stop playing women like this one? Is that too much to ask? I think maybe someone will read it and either A) be a guy and realize they probably shouldn’t act that way towards someone they’re dating or B) be a woman and read these women’s accounts tomorrow and realize they might be tolerating too much in their current relationship. So that’ll be coming tomorrow.

When I first released the episode-by-episode spoilers, I put the air date next to each episode of every Monday for 11 weeks starting May 13th and going through the finale on July 22nd. I said that should be the schedule unless there’s an NBA Finals game on a Monday. Well, the NBA released their Finals schedule, and Monday, June 10th is Game 5. So I don’t think there will be a sweep this season by either team, so there’s most likely going to be a Game 5 on June 10th. Just know that at some point later on this season, they will have to do two episodes on back-to-back nights to get to the July 22nd finale if there’s no sweep and Game 5 runs as expected on Monday the 10th replacing the “Bachelorette.” Also, I think this will be the third consecutive year that my Fan Appreciation Party airs the night of Game 4 of the NBA Finals, which is June 7th this year. What great timing I have.

Lets address the Tyler G. “elimination” last night. Man, could they have swept that under the rug any more than they did? Honestly, I’m not even sure if they told Hannah the actual reason he was removed from the show. Her reaction of, “I found out Tyler G had to leave…I’m disappointed…but I’m moving on” sure sounds like someone who might’ve been told he had a “family emergency” or something. Because I doubt the accusations brought against him by exes, who spoke with production, would elicit a “I’m disappointed” response from someone like Hannah. So who knows exactly what she was told. If she wasn’t then, I’m sure she knows now and probably is glad he was sent home when he was. I’m guessing the show did it this way since the women they spoke to weren’t willing come forward on record. But it was enough where they felt it’d be easiest to remove him from the show and use whatever reason they felt like. Have we ever had a person taken off the show in a manner like that before where it’s literally given one sentence to? I don’t think we have. Just weird all around, but probably for the better.

Last time I talked about BIP, I mentioned all the names of people I was hearing was on it that WEREN’T Colton’s women or Hannah’s guys. Today, I’m going to give you a list of people who I’m pretty sure will be on the ORIGINAL CAST of Paradise from what I’m hearing. This is in no way definitive, but I can guarantee you all these people will definitely be on the show. But with original cast, sometimes it gets tricky. This is what I’m hearing for the start of the show:


Hannah Godwin (Colton’s season)
Caelynn Miller-Keyes (Colton)
Tayshia Adams (Colton)
Nicole Lopez-Alvar (Colton)
Onyeka Ehie (Colton)
Demi Burnett (Colton)
Sydney Lotuaco (Colton)
Kristina Schulman (Nick’s season)
Bibiana Julian (Arie’s season)


Blake Horstmann (Becca’s season)
Dylan Barbour (Hannah’s season)
Connor Saeli (Hannah)
Cam Ayala (Hannah)
John Paul Jones (Hannah)
Kevin Fortenberry (Hannah)
Box Joe Barsano/Old Matt Donald (Hannah) (My guess is one of them will be original cast, and the other will be joining later)

There will obviously be more guys on the original cast, but those are the ones I’m hearing as of now. The list is ever changing, so I just ask again to please not email with “What about this person” or “I thought so-and-so was doing it.” This is just who I’m hearing original cast will be. Over 30 people will show up in Paradise at some point this season. This is basically only half the cast. There’s plenty more to come, but expect most, if not all of these to be the ones who start the show.

Also, I’m hearing filming begins around June 6th or so. So expect contestants to start flying to Mexico next Monday or Tuesday. Filming usually lasts around 18 days. That’s how long it’s been for the previous 5 seasons, except for season 4 when they had the shut down. I believe that only ended up being about 12 days total of filming.

    I don’t have a problem with Mike or his story – except …. he got so emotional when taking the blame for the miscarriage because he wasn’t there and then 10 seconds later is sucking face with Hannah – seriously???

    If anyone ever questioned why Luke was getting a bad edit… all they need to do is look at last night’s episode.

    You CANNOT blame the producers for that — Luke actually told Hannah, “I’m letting you develop relationships with others”

    O. M. G!!!

    Dude has some serious personality disorders and if ABC was serious about contestant evaluation, Luke would have not been ever cast in the first place.

    The Luke thing is pretty bad and a tad scary! A male version of AshLee ‘crazy’ Frazier. Some things just can’t be edited or manipulated by the producers’. Some contestants are simply cast because of emotional issues etc., and I don’t doubt that’s why Luke was cast. Overall, they are all essentially lab rats, and that includes the lead.

    Thank you for mentioning her red nose. Come on ABC touch up her foundation every now and then. That’s fixable with a little powder. Also, if I had to guess, I would say that Hannah was dehydrated for whatever reason. They did mention the flu but then she said that she wasn’t contagious. Nothing like a little norovirus flying around the mansion to stir things up a bit. Thanks for this site. It adds so much to watching this show!

    I don’t understand why no one is talking about the fact that Mike blatantly lied and misrepresented what Cam had said. He said that Hannah might send him home AFTER telling her about his condition, which had happened to him in prior relationships. Mike twisted what he said and made it seen as if he was planning on telling his story to get a pity rose, which is exactly what he did some days before. I think Mike is a disgusting human being for trying to savotage Cam with lies and deceit. I’m also questioning Hannah’s judgement for taking Mike at his word.

    > I don’t understand why no one is talking about the fact
    > that Mike blatantly lied and misrepresented

    I for one, and I’m no Nancy Grace, thought absolutely Cam was trying to get a pitty rose.

    > what Cam had said

    What exactly did Cam say?

    That he had a situation; some gibberish about an amputation and a puppy.

    It was a non-nonsensical rant, with little to no details, about who knows what and if you watch the replay, Hannah looks like she wants to laugh at him.

    Cam’s speech was more contrived than Mike’s just because he announced it to everyone up front. Mike’s seemed contrived because it looked like they just sat down and he launched in to it with nothing leading up to it, but with the editing it is hard to say how long they might have been talking before he got into it. It should have been a mood killer for any romantic gesture after for sure though, let alone face sucking.

    I think everyone is being affected by LA pollution. It is the worst in the country. Even the guys sound nasally/sick. I think Hannah’s nose/guys voices will clear up once they are out of town.

    I wonder if Luke has taken up a Christian religion where men are considered to have authority over women. It may make him feel like he can embrace his inner control freak, because that is certainly how he is acting. I’m not sure he was paying attention to how not submissive Hannah was on Colton’s season and only saw what he wanted. Hannah is definitely NOT the woman for him, lol!

    I thought the whole pretend pregnancy and childbirth was the most cringeworthy thing this show has ever done. And they have done some bad ones.

    We know from ex- producers and contestants several things. One is that in the interviewing process they give the contestants a lengthy psychological test which reveals their strengths and weaknesses….which the producers EXPLOIT.

    I strongly suspect Cam is socially inept, and while Mike’s leadership qualities were a plus in the military, he came across last night as a bit overpowering and underhanded as we never heard Cam use the word PITY rose. Mike misconstrued the situation to Hannah to get his desired results, and I suspect none of them is particularly pleased with the way that looked.
    Jonathan’s psych test may have revealed persistence and determination; therefore, he may well have been producer manipulated into that scene we saw last night.

    Luke clearly does not understand how reality shows operate, the manipulation, or the editing techniques, so he wasn’t careful at all with what he said.
    One of the producers’ favorite tricks is to stand sight unseen to the side and ask a question. We don’t hear the question…only the answer which often results in ridiculous things – if not the things the person would ordinarily mean in the situation we are seeing.
    *For that reason I don’t take at face value everything we hear the person say.
    However, I do believe, perhaps, something tipped them off in his tests and interviews that he can be possessive, and they have manipulated that excessively.

    I agree with what you’ve said, great comment. I’d add further, that some conversations take place between contestants (that aren’t or can’t be shown for whatever reason), that we later hear about, which show a true nature of a person, some positive, some not. The psychological tests are most definitely used to exploit some of the contestants as it’s used ‘against’ them. One producer said some psychological test results were ‘borderline’, thus pretty much confirming they really shouldn’t have had certain contestant(s) on the programme. 🙁

    This is what makes me so mad about this show at times… “the psychological tests”. After Corinne/BIP blew up, ABC spun it the evals were there for safety, vetting, etc.

    That’s a lie.

    Shocker, I know.

    But if ABC is truly concerned about contestant safety, there’s no way a Chad, a Corinne, a Luke gets on this show.

    ABC really only care about ratings, the rest is mostly empty platitudes. The psychological tests aren’t really there to serve as a safety net for the contestants, they are done so the producers know the contestants strengths and flaws etc. Corrine set her own agenda on how she wanted to be portrayed on the programme. I don’t think that really happened in such an obvious way before her. During Arie’s series we had Demi, and so now we have contestants going on there to seek the most air time possible and those who are manipulated etc. who attract attention, but not necessarily of their own wanting or making. Chad would largely come under this edit, he really shouldn’t have gone nor have been allowed to go on the show at all. He was the producers puppet and play thing. 🙁
