The Bachelor 14 - Jake

The Bachelor Recap – 2/8/10 Incl. Details About Ali’s Departure & The Next Bachelorette

If you haven’t been back to the site since last Thursday, I suggest you scroll down when you’re done reading, and check out Thursday’s post including a Mike Fleiss interview where he addresses the spoilers I’ve released. Also covers a few things that a lot of you are asking regarding Vienna’s reputation taking a beating in “US Weekly”. Not surprising, but you gotta remember to separate the Vienna you’re hearing about now as opposed to the one who was filming in October and November. Jake would have no clue this would eventually all come out against her, and even then, it’s his decision to choose what to believe and what not to believe about her. Hey, Jillian stuck by Ed even after text messages and emails proved he was contacting other women while he was on the show, while he left the show the first time, and even after he got back from filming an engagement. So who’s to say Jake isn’t gonna do the same thing once everyone comes down hard on him for choosing Vienna? He’s kind of in a lose-lose situation. If he’s already dumped her, people will get on him for not sticking by the woman he fell for during filming and immediately believing what’s being said about her. And if he stays with her, people will ask, “Is he blind? Does he not care about her past we’re all hearing about?” Not saying it’s fair, just saying that’s what will happen in the upcoming weeks.

I can’t tell you people how excited I am for “Bachelor Pad” to air this summer. The reason why is, this is going to be a completely different concept than we’re used to. Sure, Chris Harrison is hosting, Fleiss is behind it, and it’ll have a lot of the same music and storytelling, however, it’s not going to be a dating show. Although details are still sketchy at this point, if it’s along the lines of “Big Brother” (which is what we’re being led to believe), then how can this not be a success for them? I’m guessing most of the people they’re going to cast have some sort of past with each other. Either they fought during their seasons, or hooked up off camera, or even dated and have broken up. Now we get to see them all living in a house, competing in challenges for money AND hooking up? Awesome. No more stupid dates, no more cheesy recycled lines, no more rose ceremonies, no more fake engagements, etc…So you may hate watching the “Bachelor/ette” and all its stupidity, but if you still watch, then there’s no way you don’t watch “Bachelor Pad”. And if Tanner’s Facebook status over the weekend tells us anything, we might be seeing him appear on that show. Not surprising since he’s exactly the type of contestant they’re looking for in that house.

Since there’s been a lot of questions asked regarding this season and a lot of hoopla surrounding the spoilers I gave out back on Jan. 6th, I figured the best way to address everything people want to know is to have some sort of Q&A session. Well, thanks to the website, tomorrow at 6pm EST, I will be doing a 1 1/2 hour live podcast where people will be able to call in and ask questions. There are two things you can do to listen tomorrow:

1) Come back to tomorrow at 6pm EST where I’ll have posted the icon where you can listen
2) Or, click on this link and listen from there:

There will be an icon on the screen that has the phone number to call in on if you have any questions you want to ask. Or if you just want to call me up and curse me out for telling you what was going to happen ahead of time, hey, I’m fair game. Sure, I’ll answer any questions you have to the best of my ability, but if you want to call up with some issue you have against me or site, I’ll be more than happy to discuss that with you as well. It’s very easy to snipe at me on other message boards or without directly asking me things yourself, so I figured why not give everyone a chance to ask me whatever the hell they want? Tomorrow night, 6pm EST, right here on, an open forum to discuss anything and everything “Bachelor/ette” related. Be there. Or here.

The group codes have been sent out for booking rooms at the Venetian hotel. The last day to guarantee the group rate I have set aside is tomorrow, Feb. 10th. However, they have told me they will extend that date at least another few days, so if you plan on making the trip out March 5th-7th, and you’d like to stay at the Venetian but haven’t booked your room yet, I suggest you do it soon. I would not want anyone not to go because the rates shot up on you. Everyone who has contacted me and has shown interest, your email is saved and you will be getting updates over the next three weeks. Anyone still interested, you still have time to make your reservations, whether you stay at the Venetian or not. Look forward to seeing you there. Should be a great time. Of course it will be, it’s Vegas. It’s impossible to have a crappy time there. Well…forget it. On to last night…

-I cannot say with 100% certainty since it’s very tough to gauge this sort of thing, but in this the 19th edition of this franchise, I think last night’s episode had more crying in it than any previous episode. Or ten episodes combined. Holy crap. There was crying in every hometown date at some point, and did you notice that once the hometown dates were wrapped up, we still had 45 MINUTES LEFT IN THE SHOW!!!! Good Lord. That last 45 minutes could’ve easily been done in about ten minutes. That was completely unnecessary. The good news? Because there wasn’t much to really write about over the last 45 minutes, this is probably going to be the shortest column of the season. Sure I’ll cover all the hometown dates (and there were some beauties), and I’ll touch a little bit on Ali’s exit (even though it was pretty much what I had anticipated and what I was told), but other than that, it really dragged out there at the end. Could’ve been wrapped up much, much quicker than that. But, it’s a 2 hour show, they need to ramp up the drama, and they did. I thought I was watching a soap opera there for a moment. Oh wait, this is a soap opera. My bad.

-First hometown date is with Gia in New York City. You know what I noticed about Gia? Well, other than the bolt-ons she has and the beak job she had done. I noticed that when she’s excited to see Jake, she jumps into his arms and straddles him like a monkey. I half expect her to start eating a banana and making chimp noises while she’s latched on to him. It’s kinda weird to say the least. I mean, I’m all for a good hug and everything, but please, quit jumping on me and trying to squeeze the life out of me with your legs. At least while our clothes are still on. Gia: “Now that I’m here alone with him, I can finally let my guard down.” You mean, like tell him how awkward of a couple you two make? Talk about two people with completely different lifestyles. I’m sorry Gia, I know you’re trying to convince yourself you’re falling for the guy (probably because the producers are telling you too), but if you were really honest with yourself, there’s not a chance in hell you two could ever be together. You’re a NY city girl and he’s a dork from Denton, Tx. Ain’t happening. Sorry. Go back to dating MLB pitchers and hockey players who pass women around like they’re joints.

-My favorite part of their date was up next. As they took a boat ride around New York, Gia decided to play tour guide. Gia: “That’s the Empire State Building with the long, pointy thing at the top.” No sh**? Are you sure? Whew. Thanks for pointing that out. I know Jake might be a dumb Texan and all, but I’m guessing even he is able to pick out arguably the worlds most recognizable building in New York City. Hey Gia, why don’t you fill Jake in on those other two buildings that were once close together but came down back in September of 2001. I’m sure Jake has no clue about that either. Something to do with terrorist attacks and the like. Hell, even I’m unclear on the whole thing. What were those called again? This Gia is a fountain of information. So these two decided to be cute and take pictures of themselves. I also found this amusing since Gia would hold the camera away from their face, Jake would lean in, and she’d take the snapshot. Yet the snapshot they showed us on screen was from a completely different angle taken by the cameraman. Really captured the moment, huh? I’m guessing after Gia gets sent home next week in St. Lucia, she went straight to that camera and deleted all those pictures. Or printed them out and drew mustaches and horns on Jake’s face.

-Jake is really starting to get in to Gia. More in to her than you could ever want to imagine. Jake: “I have such a burning desire to get to know her heart.” Barf. Who says these types of things? Seriously. I know it’s a show and all, but did he craft all these before the show started, write em’ all down, then just start reeling them off one-by-one? He’s got at least two or three of these a week that just sound like something out of a Hallmark card and completely phony. The best one is yet to come, and I’m sure you know which one I’m talking about. Gia is a little nervous to show Jake to her parents. Gia: “You’re the first guy to meet my parents that I wasn’t friends with earlier.” Yeah, and I’m sure you and Carl Pavano were lifelong friends before deciding to consummate your relationship. I’m guessing that’s not quite how it worked. Probably saw you out at a bar after a game, bought you drinks, and before you knew it, you were back at his place…ummmm…talking. Yeah, that’s it. As for the hockey player, he probably saw you in Maxim, had his agent contact your agent, and before you knew it, you were back at his place…ummmm…talking. Gia doesn’t seem to be one that wastes any time. This whole “I’m-the-ugly-duckling-nobody-liked-me-I’m-totally-insecure” bit is getting old. If you’re posing half naked in men’s magazines, let’s cut out the whole “I’m shy” act. It’s annoying.

-Gia then talks a little about her past without mentioning Carl’s name or that hockey player from the Ottawa Senators. Chris Campoli. Yeah, him (Sorry, just had to look it up in “US Weekly”. Didn’t want to disrespect the guy by constantly referring to him as “that hockey player”). Anyway, Gia informs Jake that one of her ex’s slept with all her best friends. Well, apparently they can’t be that good of friends if they decided to sleep with your boyfriend, so there’s your first problem. Your second problem, and probably the easiest to rectify, is the fact that you dated a professional athlete. Gia, what did you expect? That’s what these guys do. As good looking as he may think you are, and you may think you are, in every city he goes to, he can basically pick and choose whoever he wants to be with. That’s how it works with them. They don’t even have to put out an effort. It comes to them. They are pro athletes. Hundreds of women all across America could not care less what this guy’s interests are, they just want to sleep with them so they can tell others that they did. Or to get impregnated so they can live off child support. You don’t believe me? Go read that story on NBA groupies in “Sports Illustrated” a few years back. These women have NO shame whatsoever and readily admit to all this. It’s a sad, sad fact but it’s true. I cannot feel sorry for anyone who ever gets involved with a professional athlete. You’re gonna get hurt, bottom line.

-Just to expand on this a little bit more, let’s take three of the most famous athletes of our generation, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, and Kobe Bryant. P***y hounds. All three of em’. Anybody that knows anything about Michael Jordan knows that in his hey day, he was the most notorious skirt chaser in the NBA. He liked to drink, gamble, and chase women. Which is what made him that much more amazing considering the guy never fell off his game with all those distractions. Tiger? Well, we’ve all seen what he’s capable of. Swinging his club around is not only his profession, but he does it in his spare time as well. And often. You think that one night in Colorado with that skank hotel concierge was the ONLY time Kobe was with another woman? Really? Just the one time he happened to slip up he gets caught? Uh huh. Sure it was. It’s part of who they are. From the time they were teenagers, everyone has kissed their ass. By the time they’re in their 20’s, they have more money than they know what to do with, so they feel invincible. They ALL cheat. ALL of em’. I’ve been in locker rooms, I’ve interviewed players, and I’ve covered sports pretty much my whole life. I’ve seen it with my own two eyes and I’ve got enough bizarre stories that’ll make your head explode. So bottom line: Gia, sorry honey. You date an athlete, you reap what you sow.

-So now we get to meet Gia’s family at a restaurant as opposed to her house. Not sure why and don’t really care. But I dig the family. Mom Donna, stepdad Tony (with a ponytail), half brother Dylan, and step brother Erick, who obviously borrowed Pauly D’s hair gel for the night. Think Erick is a fan of “Jersey Shore”. Ummmmm, I’d say so. Probably called all his boys before last nights show. “Awwwww sh** kid! Check me out on TV tonight, homie! We gonna be fist pumpin’ like crazy!” And in one of the rare oddities I’ve ever seen in life, who’d ever think that Gia’s stepdad from New York would be named Tony and have a ponytail? You’re kidding, right? Next thing you’re gonna tell me is that they’re gonna have pasta for dinner. Which they did. Tony pulls Jake aside for a little chat. Oh boy. This should be interesting watching these two MENSA’s lock horns. “So uhhh, aye-oh, uhhh you like uhhhh in love wit’ all four of deez girlz?” Jake: “Immediate chemistry…organic…different than the other girls…” I started dozing off here. No idea what Jake was getting at. I was enamored with all the Italian heritage at the table. Only if this dinner could’ve taken place at Olive Garden would it have been more perfect. Or Buca di Beppo.

-So while Jake is inside trying to figure out what Tony is saying, Gia is outside with her mom and lets her in on something pretty shocking. Gia: “He’s not like any of the other guys I’ve dated.” Yes, he sure is. Cuz’ he owns a limo company and gives flying lessons whereas Carl and Chris were millionaires playing professional sports, traveling the US, and banging women in different cities, including your friends. So yeah, I can see where he’d be a tad different than the douchebags you’re used to going out with that treat you like dirt, cheat on you, then you wonder why your heart always gets broken. So she basically asks her mom, “Do you think Jake will do to me what they did?” Mom did her best to ensure her Jake is different than Carl and Chris by lying. “He’s in love with you. I can see it in his eyes.” Yes he is. Until next week, then he’s not. Jake’s big thing tonight was telling all the parents how protective he will be. I mean, what are you supposed to say, “You know, at the drop of hat, in any sign of crisis, I pretty much jump ship. I’ll leave your daughter in a second.” Of course that’s what he’s gonna say. He’s protective. Great. When it’s raining, he’ll put his jacket down so she can walk over a puddle. Outstanding. Man of the Year.

-I guess Jake walked her back to her apartment at the end of the night. Or they just decided to sit down on some random apartments stoop so Gia could do one of her favorite things, “sitting on a stoop and watch the cabs go by.” Wow. Doesn’t take much to entertain her, does it? That’s one of your favorite things to do? Really? I’m gonna be in NY in three weeks and I can tell you what I won’t be doing, and that’s enjoying listening to cabs drive by at 100 miles an hour on side streets honking at each other. But hey, whatever floats your boat Gia. Maybe you like the sound of fire engines, ambulances, police cars, and gunshots in the middle of the night too. These two couldn’t be any more different if they tried. Not saying opposites can’t attract, but I see zero connection with these two. Nada. Haven’t seen it since Day 1 even with knowing how long Gia lasted. And considering he told Ali later on in the show that she wasn’t set to go home, looks like Gia would’ve been gone last night if it weren’t for Facebook threatening Ali with her job if she stayed on the stupid show any longer.

    As a poster stated…anyone who signs up for this turkey of a show is fair game for all of us. If you hate Steve, don’t read his blog or comment on it. He is not doing it for popularity but for entertainment. Keep doing it your way Steve! You’re the best!

    I LOVE Steve’s deadpan comments and the dry humor in the Bonnie Hunt segment. (not Reality Steve… Bonnie Hunt’s Steve)

    Although, it would be GREAT if Reality Steve went on Bonnie’s show and they both ripped on it!

    misattributionofarousal :ps… want to add that I am SO GLAD Tenley will not be the next Bachelorette….
    Last night I had to literally leave the TV because I couldn’t listen to her “nail on chalkboards” voice…. nasally, whiny and little girlish all at the same time…. horrible.

    As annoying as her little girl voice is, I honestly think she can’t help it. As Steve has pointed out, she is on the show for the right reasons, and does not fit in as a result. She could be Trista Rehn like in that respect.

    Hmmm…Maybe I should rethink my definition of “right reason”. Perhaps for a show as hokey as this, being a contestant as a way into show biz IS the right reason. Perhaps some pragmatism is in order. I am reminded of Melissa Rycroft, who bartered her 15 minutes of national humiliation fame in exchange for a reporting job at ABC. (It was right decent of ABC to do that, arguably they owed her big time for that fiasco.)

    I just wanted to clarify the size of Sanford, FL (having lived & worked there before). Sanford is what I’d call a suburb outside of Orlando (about 20 miles north of downtown Orlando). The population is around 50,000 people, so it’s not really a small town or a podunk as it seems- so it really bothers me that Vienna is trying to act like some country bumpkin when she’s not.

    Yes, I agree that most of Ali and Jake’s session seemed so scripted to me and painful to watch, I had to fast forward through most of that crying session, a bit overkill in my opinion. Too much back and forth, make a decision and don’t look back, good golly and I thought I was indecisive i.e. chicken or fish, I don’t know, which one???I My theory, I think the producer’s told Ali she wasn’t his chosen one and said to follow along with this script and you’ll be our number one consideration for the Bachelorette. From my understanding, they won’t let you be on the show unless you can commit to 6 weeks AND you can’t have phone access, internet or TV therefore no one can get a hold of you. I can’t imagine her saying, hey; I can only stay “so long” otherwise I have to go. I just don’t buy that but that’s me. I’m a die hard Reality Steve reader/follower but I think something is “off” about that information he received. If it’s true, then I don’t believe she was truly in it to find love with Jake otherwise she would have stayed and perhaps her entire motive was to get on the show, get her 15 minutes and be considered for her own show.

    Tenley cried when she saw her mother, her and her died both cried when she was talking to him, her mom cried when talking to Jake, Jake cried when getting her dad’s permission, the dog cried when Jake sat on his chair, the sister cried when Jake ate all the food, Mike Fleiss cried when he saw his 3rd cousin Heidi on “Celebrity Rehab”, Ryan Callahan cried when Rozlyn laid her head on his shoulder, Chris Harrison cried when he realized all four hometown dates were done and there was still 45 minutes left in the show, Gia cried because she heard Tenley was crying, which then in turn made Vienna cry, and Ali caught wind of all this happening and cried because her grandmother spoke to her and said, “Get the hell off this show, go back to work, and make sure Jake never visits here again. He’s too short for you anyway.” So basically what I’m saying is, there was a lot of crying on this hometown date in case you didn’t notice. Even Maddie was crying. Why? Because daddy got mad at her for deciding to use my floor as her personal toilet when she knows she’s not supposed to. Bad girl. ”
    I am still laughing and pounding my fists on my desk. My co-workers think I have lost it. Keep it coming.

    First of all, I have to say that reading your blog is the highlight of my week! I regularly laugh out loud when reading it, so nice work.
    Second, I was at an event yesterday and who was standing at the step-and-repeat waiting to interview the next B-list celebrity to walk up? None other than our favorite Chris Harrison. I almost laughed when I saw him standing there because of all your comments regarding him branching out to the TV Guide channel, but I managed to refrain. And for anyone who wants to know exactly how short Chris is—and therefore Jake—I can tell you: they’re pint-sized. I had about 4 1/2-inch heels on, which makes me about 6′ tall, and Chris was AT LEAST 3-4 inches shorter than me. I’m talking 5’9″ on a good day…like if he borrowed Jake’s cowboy boots with the higher heels.
    And finally, while I love your sense of humor and spoilers, I just have to say one thing because I’m an editor and I just can’t help myself: It’s “voila,” not “walla” (see Jan. 18 entry). =D

    Well ain’t you one to talk about poor grammar skills.
    Quote: “Your good for learning the the facts in terms of who’s staying and who’s leaving. As for the rest, I get the biggest laughs out of your English.”
    My dear, you should have put ‘you’re’, not ‘your.’ And you repeated the word ‘the’ twice. I also noted a few punctuation errors. I assume your comment about Steve coming from a “lower middle class” family is to imply that you are upper class. What excactly does proper grammar have to do with class background?
    If you’re going to play grammar police, I suggest you be extra careful the next time you red ink a post.
    To Reality Steve: I read on that Howard Stern is in talks to replace Simon Cowell.

    Perhaps this whole Ali thing was a ploy from the start. Maybe Fleiss realized that Ali would be somebody the audience would fall in love with. So, the story that she could only take so much time off was concocted in order to make the audience feel sorry for Ali. She leaves alone (supposedly for something beyond her control), and the show goes on to offer her a second chance for love. All of the ‘sudden’ Facebook has a change of heart…
    Like the grammar police stated, Facebook would not likely shy away from the publicity.

    Being on Facebook Bachelor fan page it is almost scary the way people take this so seriously. People are almost creating fan fiction of how Jake & Ali will “reunite” and live happily ever after.

    While it is nice to see people get so emotionally involved. I think some people are going really overboard. I can see why they hate RS so much. He bursts their fantasy bubble and brings them literally back to “reality”.

    Well I heard that Roz is coming back! Yes she is going to return! How do I know? I saw it on page 236 of the script. A friend of a guy that had a cousin in prison who was a cellmate of a dude who was married to a gal that had a stepbrother who use to bang a cleaning lady of Chris Hansomes saw the script next to Chris’s toilet which had been cried on to a point were it was hard to read but was still dry enough to copy without distroying it. There was also a market study under the script that said 70% of the show watchers are gullable and believe that reality is reality.

    Man I love a good laugh!

    I was really disppointed to see that you did not make fun of Jake constantly referring to proposing marriage to these nincompoops as “begging for their hand in marriage”. Go back and watch, he says it every single time. Pretty telling, isn’t it? Not asking, not proposing, not getting a blessing but BEGGING. Desperate loser.

    oh, and thanks for all the snorts and giggles I get to explain away to my co-workers every week when I read your column. They just don’t understand your humor like I do. 😉

    @ carissag

    Thanks for pointing that out. I didn’t believe Vienna’s BS about how she had never been in a big city. I knew then that she was from Sanford, which is a suburb or Orlando. Granted Orlando isn’t anywhere near the size of San Fransisco, but by no means is it a small town! She went to school in Orlando. The city has two major theme parks, decent night life and an NBA team for chissake. The country bumpkin act is ridiculous! The place where they saw the alligators, turtles etc. was probably Lake Lotus in Altamonte Springs, which is a nature park on the edge of a urban area. She’s just using the country bumpkin thing to get people to like her and make her look like and underdog or something. My dad has never watched the Bachelor but watched part of the San Fransisco dates while my mom and I were watching a couple weeks ago (its our weekly girls guilty pleasure night) and he saw Vienna for less than five minutes and declared her a “beaotch!”

    Thanks Steve for the funny and all too entertaining column! I do wish they would break free from the recycling off of Brad’s season and give us somebody totally new again. The last several (DeAnna, Jason, Jillian and Jake … wow kinda looks like Ali’s former J boyfriend list) all are branches off of Brad’s season and its getting old.

    Guys… you’ve GOT to go over to the Bonnie Hunt Show ( and watch the Bachelor recap they just did – I almost peed my pants! Page down to “Bonnie reviews the latest installment of “The Bachelor” with Steve and Ellie.”

    OK, they’ve moved the videos now over to the “Videos”column on the right hand side. Scroll down to “Best of Bonnie” Part 1 and Part 2 (total over 11 minutes) “Bonnie reviews the latest installment of…” – the picture shows a guy in a black sweatshirt/shorts and a brunette woman in a purple sweatshirt on the couch. Take a look at their comments of The Bachelor – hilarious!

    Love the blog!! I don’t even remember how I originally came across it, but I now tune in every week to read your witty outtake. Keep it coming!

    Was it just me, or did anyone else notice this … Right before Ali tells Chris that she needs to talk to him, they zoom in on her alone, and she mouths the word “now” as if she is needing cued to say her line. Then, she dramatically asks Chris to speak with him. Don’t get me wrong – I sure wish Ali had stayed over Vienna, but I still find it funny how scripted this show is … And, you don’t need half a brain to see that.

    As much as I’ve enjoyed watching the Bachelor/Bachelorette over the years, I have to say this has been the most fun season yet. I’m enjoying it more than ever, not in spite of Steve’s spoiler blog but because of it.

    I’m one of the rare people who has liked Vienna from the start. After all, she lives one county away from me. 🙂 I found this spoiler after I took a liking to the entertainment factor Vienna provides to the show. Reading this stuff has made it so much fun to watch how it all plays out.

    My sister having flown on a Delta Connection flight from ATL to BTR during the last season adds to the whole Bachelor experience for me.

    Corrie is a friend of my daughter….my daughter told me that Corrie has said she doesn’t want to have children. Did she possibly tell this to Jake and it was edited out? That would be a big strike against her.

    To top it off, a friend of mine saw Vienna at the Seminole Towne Center mall last Saturday. She was just hanging out with a friend…yes, in Sanford, FL.

    I must say that after last week though, I’m disappointed that Jake didn’t choose the only really normal girl in the remaining bunch. Why does Steve think he’s in the minority thinking Tenley had the only normal family? She DOES have the only normal family – any normal person sees this. This leads me to wonder if Jake is as normal as he appears to be.

    @zombiehands: ugh. That was corny. And weird, in light of what we know now about the cheating and all

    I thought Ali was a cute girl next door, but she ended up being really whiny, annoying, and emotional. I will be glad for her that she gets her own show, but she seems to be a bit of a blonder DeAnna, a young girl who just wants fame.

    I don’t think she is interesting enough to watch as a male viewer, but I can see a lot of women who like her. I think Ali is serious about marriage though, she’s not good looking enough to be a model or celebrity. I’m not sure there will actually be any guys out there who want to actually marry her, but good luck to her for trying.

    She’s also not very rich, but she might have some good Facebook stock, and that could make her more appealing to some of the men. Hopefully she won’t get duped by a player like Ed.

    Viewing this site is my first time and will be my LAST. Steve is an idiot. Listen people. Ali would have had to get back in touch with the show to find out how to get in touch with Jake. He is OUT OF the COUNTRY. So, of course, the show would have caught it on camera, Ali talking with Jake. Damn . Use your heads a little better, would ya? As far as Vienna goes, she is a troublemaker. Were you not paying attention to what her familiy said about her always having trouble with other girls, since SCHOOL?? She is low class. Steve has no insight to any of these reality shows. The producers do not let anything out! get a grip, get a life use your OWN MINDS!

    Steve thanks for the post what a treat to read while on the pot. Honestly though I am disappointed that you made no comments about the rope lighting in the shed that housed Vinny’s Hog. Total classic moment. Can you imagine what Kypton would have thought walking into that place. What a Dive!!

    Another thing at the beginning of the series when Vienna said her dad has bought her 5 cars because she cannot drive for s#*t. Tell me the cars she had purchased for her. Here are my top 5 vehicle choices:

    1987 Chevy Celebrity Euro
    1984 Buick Century Limited
    1995 Geo Metro Lsi
    1987 Ford Escort 2 dr Hatchback LX
    and last but certainly not least.
    1987 Chevy Surburban Diesel

    She certainly did not have anything too classy in a gem of a property that Vinny owned.

    Attention all Reality Steve fans: I am starting a campaign to get The Bonnie Hunt Show to bring RS on for a guest interview. They make fun of The Bachelor every week in their recap, pointing out how ridiculous & phony it is. I’ve already sent them an email with the request. Here is the link
    Unfortunately, her show is getting canceled this May, so she has nothing to lose by having RS on for an expose. It would be great if we can get him on a show with a nationally televised audience!
