The Bachelorette 6 - Ali

Bachelorette 6 Recap – 6/7/10

-The whole cocktail party essentially surrounded the guys calling out Justin once Ali told Roberto that Justin had come to her place. The Estrogen Crew and myself never really saw the big deal out of what Justin did. Who cares he went over to her place? Then of course you’ll have your side that says Justin did exactly what he should’ve done if he wanted more time with Ali and took the initiative. Well, we’re basically both wrong. Don’t think for a second the guys weren’t told by the producers to start needling Justin and calling him out. Honestly, I bet those guys didn’t give a crap that he went over to her place. But since they’re told to pretend like they do, that’s what they did. So they basically jump all over the guy for something so stupid, it was all kinda lame. Justin went over to her place because he was told to as part of a storyline, then the guys back at the house are told, “Hey, go call him out for what he did.” And back and forth they went all night. Too bad all of if was manufactured. Think about it. Why would the guys be that bothered by what Justin did when all of them could’ve done the exact same thing if they wanted to? All very calculating and manipulative.

-Rose ceremony time. Roberto and Kirk with roses already. Ali: “Easier and harder at the same time…building connections…tension in house…thank you for being here…You guys have no idea how excited I am for these storylines to play out the rest of the season. I can’t wait to hear from Justin’s girlfriend as I get to make my second phony phone call in a span of two seasons!”

Chris L.: This guy is so suave and dialed in knowing he’s a lock for the final two, he doesn’t even wear suits to the rose ceremonies. Just jeans and a collared shirt. Pimp.
Jesse: However, this cat takes the cake. Apparently he owns stock in Arizona Jean Co. considering he’s wearing one of their shirts and jeans. The respect he shows Ali is breathtaking.
Chris N.: I don’t think anyone has ever been on this show three episodes and not said a word. Chris N. is now that guy.
Jonathan: Weatherfairy made some stupid weather-related remark when he got the rose. Shoot me.
Ty: I need to go back to calling him the THP – Ty Hayden Pyle.
Kasey: I guess next week we get “crazy” Kasey. So wrong. Then again, this show preys on the gullible.
Craig: My guess? He wasn’t sober for the rose ceremony.
Frank: He decided to go with the limo driver look that night. All he was missing was the hat and a “Lloyd Christmas” name tag.

“Gentleman, Ali. This is the final rose tonight. When you’re ready. I was an abortion on the Spelling Bee. I don’t think I’ll ever get asked back to that event considering I kept talking over all the kids while they were asking what the origin is for the 100th time.”

Justin Yeah, a lot of suspense on this one. Would she give it to Steve, who we’ve barely heard from. John, who we’ve barely heard from. Or Justin, the guy that the last hour of the show centered around? Hmmmm, tough one.

Ok, here’s an update on “Bachelor Pad”. John Hardesty is not on the show. He’s the only one from last weeks list I believe is not on it. In addition, you can add four people:

Craig M (from Canada)
Jonathan the weenie weatherman
Elizabeth Kitt
Ashley Elmore

So that’s roughly 14 of the 20 contestants accounted for. I’m sure those are pretty solid. There are obviously six others and I will let you know once I start finding out more. The show started filming yesterday, and from what I’ve heard, once you get eliminated, you are sent home. So you’ll kinda be able to tell who got sent home when by when they start posting on facebook or twitter, unless they’re told not to until June 22nd when filming ends. I guess we’ll see. And oh yeah, it was announced this morning that Melissa Rycroft will be co-hosting the show with Chris Harrison. Man, and I thought I couldn’t turn on my TV and not see Jake Pavelka. Apparently Melissa has taken over that spot from him. Hey, if people are gonna offer you jobs, you’d be stupid to turn them down. I just find it funny that a while ago, Melissa wanted nothing to do with this show or franchise anymore. Guess things change once a paycheck is floated in your face.

For those who haven’t been to the site in a while, under the “Contact Me” link above, are all the places you can reach me at – email, Facebook, Twitter and we’ve added a Reality Steve Fan Page now, so join that if you’d like as well. Talk to you soon…

    God, I just have to comment on the Bachelor Pad. THANK GOD that John Hardesty is not on the show. I live in his town and we would NEVER hear the end of it. He thinks he’s super hot shit because he was on the show. I want to just yell at him “Getting sent home on the FIRST night is HARDLY being a contestant on the show!” And he goes to all the reunions and cruises and stuff. It’s pathetic.

    Oh please. He’s not being sexist at all. Steve, this column made me die laughing and your blog is the only reason I will even watch The Bachelorette. I think weathervagina is HILARIOUS and making fun of Roberto is too. He’s not AMAZING looking, just decent. The eyebrows bother me too. Thanks for another great upate.

    wow ok first of all… Ali I’m sure didn’t mean, “I’ve never had to worry about this before.” In terms of her always feeling beautiful enough for the guy. I’m sure she meant it as she’s never had to worry if she was good enough for the guy; if he liked her too. Also, with editing it’s quite possible that was taken out of context. Something else I want to say you to you Steve, is that you badger this guy Craig for being such a drunk… he has pointed out from day one that he doesn’t trust Justin and that there’s something he’s hiding, and apparently is completely right about that. He was one of the first guys to point that out. So why are you always making fun of him for giving him a hard time, when he rightly should be? Also, you have been making a point to say that you do not look like Craig… as if that’s an insult to you. He was shown topless and has a pretty decent body. So if I were you, I would enjoy having people compare you to him… cause it’s pretty obvious you guys are quite different in that department. Not putting you down… just sayin’. Also, you are ripping some of these guys apart for being this or that, and calling the weatherman every name in the 5th grade handbook of boys making fun of other boys… yet you are the one that devotes a blog to writing about a show called the Bachelor/Bachelorette, and hangs out with groups of WOMEN to watch it with. I’m not sure if you think by watching it with a group of women that somehow makes you more masculine… but it uh, pretty much makes you sound like you are just as estrogen filled as them. Don’t get me wrong, I love reading your blog… it’s well written, funny, informative. But go a little easy on ripping some of these guys masculinity apart. They do after all have real jobs and hobbies that don’t include watching shows like these then dissecting them apart. If you can dish it you can take it, so don’t take too much offense at my post being mostly directed at you. 🙂

    so more comments appeared after I submitted my comment that I hadn’t read before… so now I feel better about sort of saying shame on you for ripping the guys apart. Sounds like I’m not alone in feeling that way. The other posts got me thinking that yeah, you are coming across sounding a little jealous of some of these guys. So far Roberto has done nothing to act like a douche, and he’s super attractive. Why are you tearing him apart for something so superficial, and laying into him about a failed baseball career. Give the guy a break! You wouldn’t have lasted past the first episode with Ali, so stop hating on the guys that get all this time with her.

    in the scene where justin walks to ali’s house and she is in the interview justin crutches with his left leg broken and then there is a part where his broken leg is the right one. Has anyone else noticed that? Is his leg really broken or is it just to get a sympathy vote?

    Thank you to everybody who commented on how racist and kinda jealous Steve sounds when he bashes Roberto. He can make fun of him all he wants without crossing the racial line.
    Also, everybody talks about how this show is so fake and staged, did anyone ever consider that maybe they could be using Steve to serve their purposes? Maybe they are all in on it: Justin, Ali, his 2 ex girlfriends and they are just using this website to create momentum on a show that without all this drama would fall really flat. T
    That is why they dont give a damn if Steve spoils the whole season. People are still watching it and it even creates more expectation. I wouldn’t even be surprised if Steve’s informant is someone sent by the producers.

    be sure to read through what everyone else posts before you comment… it will save you some trouble since things like the comment above about the cast “switching legs” gets answered. And I’m saying that in a nice way! Cause I have done that same thing and wrote out a comment only to read others later repeating the same thing.

    I wanted to respond to carol1975’s above… I had mentioned in a previous comment on another blog, that I also think producers are in on sending people to Steve… or at least totally ok with him giving things away. For all we know, Steve is in on it! There’s no way a show on a network like ABC would just sit back ok with some guy blogging all about the complete ending to the show if it was actually bothering them. Plus by now, they would totally change up the format of the show if they thought his blog was posing a problem. The thing is, I don’t really think Steve is out to sabotage the success of the show… besides totally unfairly berating some of these guys, he pretty much gives insight and thoughts about the show that make watching it more enjoyable. Plus, without the show Steve would disappear… so he wants the show as much as it might want him. People that want to watch obliviously will always do that, the majority not even knowing this site exists. Others that would never watch it, are helping ratings and watching so they can put the show down and make comments on blogs like this. Win win for everyone!

    Side note… does anyone remember that ONE season of The Bachelor when it started out with two bachelors Byron Velvick and some other white haired guy and the women voted on which guy they wanted?? Obviously Byron won and then ended up with Mary Delgado who appeared on Bob’s show first… but that’s the only time I recall them changing the format of the show much. I didn’t like it at all because I liked the other guy, so from episode one you just end up pissed that you are stuck watching someone like Byron be the Bachelor.

    Bachelorettes in Alaska anyone?? hahaha

    Nearly wet my knickers at “weathervagina”! =D

    My initial reaction to Craig M was that he looked like Patrick Dempsey but I can see Steven Weber, too. Good call on that one.

    I have to agree with the poster above about the obvious things happening particularly on Episode 3 .. all the stuff with Justin, etc.

    I have read a few times now that some believe that Ali picks no one and that Roberto is the next Bachelor. Interesting enough but I wish they would stop recycling the contestants and pick new people. When there is history, there is too much assumption and speculation (IMO).

    Weathervagina .. omg .. that was freakin hilarious. Jonathon is such a wuss and to think he has to return to his own on-job air with that reputation. Sounds like Katy Perry has kissed more girls than he has …….

    )kay, I’ll venture a wild guess on what will happen in the finale. Ali is obviously in love with Roberto, so she will offer him the final rose. However, Ali will not get a ring from Roberto. He won’t get down on one knee and propose to her. Roberto is undoubtedly flattered by the barrage of compliments from Ali, but he certainly does not seem too taken with her.. “Do you know how cute you can be?” Seriously?! Does that sound like a man who’s in love?!?

    Remember Ali saying at some point that her biggest fear is that the man she ends up choosing may not love her back? That may just happen with Roberto.

    Oh yeah, and Roberto will end up being the next Bachelor. Of course, this is merely my UNinformed opinion. For the real scoop on what’s really going to happen, I rely on the same trusted source as the rest of you are: Reality Steve. 🙂

    I recall that Justin said that he always played the villain as a westler and being exposed to public he knows what to say and play puppy eyes when needed. So it was the perfect choice for the producer to use him and most probably make an agreement with him to spice up the show.

    Weathervagina is like the guy who was a foot fetish. The choice to take him (and most probably asked ali to keep him) is also to spice up. At first I felt some pitty for the guy since some of the other guys were pretty mean to him but after 2 times running in ali’s skirt… nope, no more pitty, just annoyance!

    Same with Craig-Toupette. I mean it does not take long to know that this guy is arrogant. Nobody talked about the way he was cruising a girl at a front of a bar within his introduction? alllooooo wake up! you are going to meet ali? Plus the alcool problem. yep! great catch for the producer on this one too!

    Okay who is left? Kasey! Have you noticed that nothing was said against Kasey in the first 3 episodes and looks like in the 4th he becomes the stalker-serial-crazy-suicide guy all of a sudden? Poor him. I am pretty sure he was sincere and was already in love and made wedding plans before his arrival.

    If everyone listen the trailers they will notice that all the talking are mixed. When ali is upset and crying this is about frank not justin. I am pretty sure at that point that she did not trust justin at all but yet again the producer asked her to play along.

    How far the producer knew about justin’s girlfriend BEFORE the show… mmmm interesting question no?

    ps…. roberto is sure incredibly yummy on top of being smart and manly and gentleman and… oh well, you get the picture :p

  13. reel_nut

    June 13, 2010 at 9:33 PM

    YES, now you guys are on the right track

    Justin likely came straight out with his lil plot idea. Translation: the producers did not have to find out _he told them, I have 2 girls both ready to be a part of this plot.

    And that, plus his obvious talents & good looks (admit you guys he is quite good looking) got him casted.

    But then what you expect???? — Ask yourself if you were a producer on a net work show, would you rely on LUCK alone to have enough material to put together a 10 episodes series?

    OR … would you go the rout these producers take which is to (every season) ***make sure to cast aterial and drama. Every season they obviously make sure to cast someone to be the fly on the ointment, plus a few extra one trick ponies as side liners.

    This year’s crop included: Puffy hair brooding/ confrontational Craig. And he only could do 2 shows do to his other gig (the new reality show he was casted to do on ABC)

  14. reel_nut

    June 13, 2010 at 10:46 PM

    Sorry, my post somehow posted itself (translation:all of the sudden it went out without my hitting “submit.”

    But on my list of ***casted intentionally*** _in other words, contestants that applied for the show pitching ideas of how could the producers use them, in my humble opinion are:


    _Puffy hair Craig_ he was a one trick pony … well, maybe 2 tricks: the brooding/ menancing look & his fierce confrontational skills. And he exited early to work on his hair in preparation for his second ABC gig (=the new show _whatever deal they had with him obviously included a guaranteed spot on the new ABC reality show.

    _Jonathan_ now here is a veteran in front of the camera. To get to be weatherman on a news show is not that easy _not to mention that the job requires some on camera interaction ,, some barbs exchanged & the emotional basket case we see in the Bachelorette could not have possibly attain, let alone hold such a job for any length of time. Translation: it takes a big bag of money & in this case a 2 show deal, to get a guy like that (=someone who at least went to college & were a public figure at least in his neck of the woods to play such a complete wuss on National TV. Besides, does anyone see a remote connection between this guy & Ali, anything to justify him getting 3 roses? If anything Ali’s expression said it all on episode 3 _her body language & facial expressions when interacting w/ Jonathan both in the filming of the video & later as he approached her was one of revultion. It is beyond me how she were able to kiss him. Yet he got a rose.

    Now, the last on my list of intentional cast*** is

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> F R A N K <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    Now when I read Reality Steve's spoilers, I thought Frank was for real. But there is a difference between words attributed to someone in print & to hear & watch them deliver them.

    80% of communication is non-verbal & when in doubt as to the truth experts advise us to listen to the non=verbals.

    In Frank's case … if you pay close attention to his expression, his tone, his lacking energy level & his body language as his delivered his message du jour repeatedly he was robotic & not credible at all.

    He looked like a man who would rather be getting his tooth pulled than to stand there stating these ridiculous & untruthful lines in front of a camera & knowing he would have some explaining to do to his favorite aunt & everybody else in his life .. and especially knowning his real serious g/f would be dissecting the scene ready to pounce on him should at the slightest sign that he meant what he said.

    Ironically, Franks REAL LIFE & REAL STORY = JUSTIN'S BS 1 G/F.

    I believe Frank & his g/f were the ones that had a pact, that he would go on the show to self promote & put out feelers amongst the Hollywood types … maybe peddle an idea of his for a sit com he dreams of writing, plus get at least a little money for their wedding & honeymoon out of it. But the producers of the Bachelor really lost on this one, because so far Frank’s acting leaves a lot to be desired not to mention his over all entertainment value. He is about as exiting as watching a poker tournament on the tube.

    June 13, 2010 at 11:02 PM

    I meant to say ***

    Ironically, Franks REAL LIFE & REAL STORY = JUSTIN’S BS minus 1 G/F.

    I’ll have to disagree with you about Chris N. being the ONLY one that has been on the show who has not said a word. Jessi from Jake’s season seemed to never be on camera unless she was close to Jake or one of the other girls. They never seemed to interview her, or put her 1 on 1 time with Jake on the show…ever. I only remember seeing her talk to Jake, when she talked about how much Vienna wasn’t good for him, right before she was kicked off….
    Just sayin’

    Kasey is the Michelle from last season with the doofus….he scares me and he should Ali….thanks for the warning Steve….what a joke…probably a total plant for the psycho shit! I love knowing all of the stuff in advance….I do kind of like Kirk though!!! Darn he goes home

  18. dnai

    June 14, 2010 at 7:31 PM

    I thought it was a bit peculiar that Chris who took care of his dieing mother takes care of Ali on their first date.

    Oh yay! The weatherman is gone.

    Wonder how much they paid Kasey to get that tat??

    After tonight’s (6/14) episode, if I EVER hear ‘guard and protect your heart” again…I am pulling my hair out. Not drinking tonight, but if I was, I’d be wasted playing the ‘guard and protect’ game!!! Can’t wait for the update tomorrow!

  20. JustJenna

    June 15, 2010 at 1:59 AM

    Hey Steve, any chance you could get an interview with Kasey after his exit? I’d love to find out if he was paid to get the tattoo, whose idea it was, and whether “guard and protect your heart” was something HE came up with or the producers did.

  21. gqueen

    June 15, 2010 at 6:58 AM

    Okay Steve, after reading your site for a few years I am finally becoming a member and writing a post.

    You HAVE to tell me who gets sent home on the finale. I know you don’t know yet if she picks anyone and I am willing to accept that but please tell me who she DOESN’T pick for sure.

    The suspense is killing me more this year than any other. Cough up the info Steve, that is why we all come here =)

    Steve– what’s the deal with the racism and homophobia that has suddenly started to creep into your columns? I really used to enjoy reading these, and they provided a snarky and fun companion to my totally embarrassing trainwreck-of-a-night watching of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” But lately your column has often made me angry. Example in this edition: the constant attempts at humor with your borderline homophobic jabs at weatherman Jonathan… I think the instances of this are about as high in number as Kasey’s “guard and protect her heart” comments. Seriously, repeated name-calling like this is puerile and not that funny; it only makes you seem like a loser.

  24. 1blue1pink

    June 16, 2010 at 5:51 PM

    Hey Steve: thoughts on this website revealing F1 as Chris Lambton?? Looks like someone beat you to it w/ insider info!

  25. glitzgirl

    June 21, 2010 at 9:29 AM

    I’m probably going to become the most unpopular person on this site but I have to defend Weatherman. I lived in Houston for awhile and always watched him on t.v. He made weather very interesting and entertaining at the same time. Jonathan was very well liked in Houston and brought alot of viewers to his station. My take on him re: this show is that he has more dignity than the other men and is the only one who actually treated Ali with respect. There was more making out this season than any other and, let’s face it, none of it was real. I’m glad he’s off the show because he’s too good for it. And, yes, it’s soooo very obvious that most of the show is contrived.

    June 21, 2010 at 2:01 PM

    Hi Steve: Love the site, keep up the good work. I saw Ali interviewed on a program, and she said the ending would be “history making”. Whatever that means? Could that mean that no Bachelorette has ever not picked someone at the end? I know that Bachelors have not picked someone at the end. You keep posting, and I’ll keep reading.

  27. glitzgirl

    June 22, 2010 at 6:45 AM

    Now that Jake and Vienna have split, what is the chance he’ll be going after Ali?

  28. Natalie_Ann

    June 22, 2010 at 7:53 AM

    Wow Vienna and Jake have broken up and Ali is single. I bet Jake and Ali will give it another shot.
