I’ve looked through your old columns and I saw something about Dr. Steve, an old advice column that you used to do? I thought that was really interesting and I’m wondering the chances of starting that up again.
Comment: It’s possible. If people want to start sending in relationship/marriage/sex questions again, sure, I’d be up for it. And in addition, just like that the last few that I posted, I’d probably bring along a female guest columnist to answer them as well, so you get both sides of the spectrum. So anyone want to send those in, be my guest. Once I feel I’ve got enough questions to run a column with, then I’ll post it. And just so you know if you don’t remember those old “Dr. Reality Steve” emails (which are down the right hand column if you look), I was basically like a younger Dr. Drew with my brilliance. I feel like I helped save relationships without even charging $1000 an hour. Or something like that.
I love your column and I read it every week. I was wondering, when it gets down to the last few girls on the show, why aren’t they allowed to see/talk to each other until rose ceremonies? It doesn’t make sense that they are separated at the very end, but they live together for the first few weeks.
Comment: Yeah, it does. I mean, it’s a little extreme that they don’t even let these people barely glance at each other once it’s down to the final four, but basically, they don’t want the women influencing Brad or each other. Take this season for example. After the hometown dates, the rose ceremony is at a hotel in New York. Those women are brought there separately, brought into a room, and told to stand there and not say a word to each other. Brad makes his decision, will send Shawntel home, then immediately Ashley H, Emily, and Chantal are wisked away without getting to speak to each other and off to their separate hotel rooms for the night until they leave for South Africa.
They don’t want these four women conversing, sharing stories about hometown dates, and just being chatty with each other because they feel like some women might find stuff out about someone else’s hometown that will upset them, or maybe make them question Brad. And knowing how much these women want to win at that point, you can bet some lying and fibbing will be going on, so then that insecure women will run to Brad asking questions, he might get annoyed by it, then decide he doesn’t want her, when it all could’ve been because of a lie. So that’s why they don’t let them speak to each other for the rest of the show the minute the hometown dates begin.
Hey Steve I’ve got a crazy question. I know it might sound dumb but like I said it’s crazy! Ok so you love writing spoilers about the bachelor and bachelorette so my question is if they asked you to do the bachelor would you? I told you it was crazy.
Comment: They will never ask me in a million years, so I’m not worried. However, they probably should considering that’s the only way they’d be able to stop me from spoiling their show. If I’m on it, I obviously can’t write a blog about it. So that’s their best bet at this point. But they never will, I’d never apply, so it’s not worth getting into a discussion about. Not to mention, I’m too old for this show. I’m 35. Might as well be 55 considering they like casting barely legal teens. Well, at least this season they did.
I think The Bachelor might have reached a new milestone. I noticed that before the airing of episode 1, you revealed to your readers which girls were, ahem, surgically enhanced. I’m sure you noticed that in this week’s show, Ashley S., Alli, and Emily were given roses in succession. Correct me if I’m wrong as you have been following the shower longer than I, but I am willing to bet that’s the longest streak of roses given to women with fake cans: 3 consecutively. Factor in that Chantal and Michelle also have fake melons, and that makes 5 of the remaining 11 women which have enhanced chesticles, which is nearly half. Call me pessimistic, but I don’t view this as coincidence. Also, an aside question. Of the remaining women who have fake knockers, who’s were done the best?
Comment: (Just to let you know, this question came from the same dude last week who said he found Madison attractive and that what guy wouldn’t be into a little choking or biting here and there. Uh huh. Let’s see what other sexual perversion he can come up with next week. That is, if he hasn’t been arrested for public indecency). Best boob job left on the show? I’ll go with Ashley Spivey, hands down. Sorry, I’m now biased towards her after finding out about the bracelet and already declaring her best southern belle they’ve ever had in Tuesday’s column.
