The Bachelor 15 - Brad

The Bachelor Recap – 1/31/11

For episode-by-episode spoilers of Brad’s season, click on the link above that says “Bachelor Brad Spoilers”. It has a breakdown of every date, rose, and elimination, all the way down to Brad’s final choice. However, there will be spoilers talked about throughout the course of this column. You’ve been warned.

So the New York reunion was this past Saturday night, with the “Jeans for Teens” charity event Sunday afternoon. No, I did not attend for those asking. But whoa. These people are ridiculous. I really hope they passed out condoms to everyone the minute they checked in to the hotel considering all the hookups I’ve heard about. Sorry, not naming names. Not gonna throw these people under the bus, although some probably deserve it. But hey, do you really wanna know who hooked up? Here’s what you do. Make a list of the names of everyone who went: Girls down the left hand column, guys down the right hand column. Start making a bunch of lines connecting girls names to guys names, even multiple lines coming out of either a girl or guys names, and I guarantee you some of them will be dead on. What did I tell you? These reunions are nothing but a mask to get these people drunk so they’ll start banging each other, then they have built in storylines for “Bachelor Pad 2” when it begins. They want people who have a physical past together, and nothing else. They don’t have to have been a couple, just some sort of hook up, and you’ll probably see them in season 2. It’s amazing the debauchery that happens at these reunions. Apparently self respect and dignity is thrown out the window. What people will do to get on TV boggles my mind.

This has been brought to my attention, so I figured I would address it. I’ve finally gotten an answer. It’s bugged me since I first saw this promo before the season started because I knew it wasn’t any of the women on the show. It’s of Brad hugging a blonde woman, we only see the back of her head, and he’s crying. Here’s the pic I’m sure you’ve all seen in the promos:

I’m here to finally give clarity to who this is. We only have two blondes left on the show, Emily and Britt. Well, it’s neither of them. The person Brad is hugging is his sister-in-law, Dillon, who is his twin brother Chad’s wife. This takes place in South Africa when his family comes to visit them. Hell, they might not even actually show this scene later this season and just used it to get people to start talking about which girl it is. So there. Put it to rest. That’s who it is.

Ok, so I’ve already been asked a few times today about the four women getting tattoos in Vegas that was never shown, so did it really happen. If you read Chris Harrison’s blog today, you’ll see that he talks about it, and says the four girls I told you did in fact get tattoos but due to time constraints, and time they think better spent showing Brad talking to his therapist, they left it on the editing room floor. But for info of which girls got what, you can read what he wrote. You’re welcome for the plug, Chris. Always here to help. And the reason I help is because your show is about to undergo a major attack of credibility in the tabloids. You’re gonna need all the help you can get in the meantime to actually have people believing any of the stuff being spewed this season is sincere.

I want to point out something very important. Every week on ABC’s “Bachelor” page, they’ve been posting a lot of humorous hand held camera videos taken by the girls when they’re in the house. They’re calling them the “Uncensored” videos. Most of them are entertaining, but this one, takes the cake.

I think I can say this with all honesty at this point. I’ve never wanted to be a giant teddy bear so much in my life. I mean, these were already my favorite two of the season, and now I find out they slept together on the show? Are you kidding me? I don’t care what any of your religious beliefs are, but I’m telling you, it’s videos like this that proves to me there’s a God. On to last night…

-So disappointed that Host Chris didn’t bother snaking anymore of his grandfathers wardrobe for this episode. Maybe steal his polyester pants or argyle sweater perhaps? Nope. Didn’t happen. He went back to his old look of a Nordstrom’s mannequin to tell the ladies they are leaving the mansion for good and on their first trip they’ll be going to Las Vegas. This has most of the women screaming, giggling, and climaxing. Ok, I added the last part. Of course, Michelle has different things on her mind. No, not Carlos Boozer and how she ruined his marriage by claiming to have absolutely no freakin’ clue that an NBA player was married (she’s heard of “google”, right?), but her reasoning for why other women need to be leaving the house immediately. And let me tell ya’, this about as solid a reason as any that you’ll ever hear of. Michelle: “I’m ready for these girls to go home because I need space for my luggage.” Yeah, that pretty much sums up Michelle for you. Pretty funny actually. I’m telling you, she might have one the shadier pasts of any former contestant on this show, but I’m sorry, she is downright television gold at this point. Who have you talked about every Tuesday morning for the last five weeks with your friends? Exactly. Michelle. She’s playing a character, she’s getting air time, and is highly entertaining. I also want to personally thank her now that I’ve added her “Boom!” elbow into my late night drinking and dancing routine. It was a hit.

-The date card arrives and Michelle reads it. “Shawntel N. Lets end tonight with a bang.” Obviously the joke writes itself here, but I found it ironic that Michelle read it. Considering all the grief Chantal gave her last week for being the only one to receive a date card that didn’t have the word “love” in it, how did Michelle not go in to character and say “Oh my God. It doesn’t say love in here. I wonder what that means. Does it mean he doesn’t love you? You think he’s having second thoughts about you? Why do you think it’s not in there? I don’t understand. He said it in all the other ones outside of mine.” She easily could’ve gone in full freak out mode but didn’t. So disappointing. I expect more from you Michelle. Your big (well, small) movie premiere is coming up soon and you need to start showing all the directors and producers out there your acting chops. Sure, you’ve been on your game for the first five episodes, but you can never let up. Always be on your game. You’ll never know who’s watching. What if Christopher Nolan was watching last night looking to cast his next vixen? Stay on it. We need more of you other than lame “Midway to Heaven” movies that’ll be on Netflix in probably a month. And oh yeah, for the record, since the news was reported last Wednesday of Michelle admitting to an affair with Carlos Boozer, the Chicago Bulls are 2-0 with wins over Orlando and Indiana. Boozer’s stat lines:

Fri. 1/28: 16 pts, 16 rebs
Sat. 1/29: 24 pts, 10 rebs

Look at that missie. His game hasn’t been slowed by this at all. In fact, those are above his season averages. Maybe time to start re-kindling the flame, huh? The possibilities are endless. I mean, c’mon. I’m sure he loves you. He probably told you that. And that you were the only one for him. And you were the first time he ever strayed from his marriage. You know, all the things athletes say to get in your pants before leaving you high and dry once they move on to the next city. Unbelievable she fell for it. Well, not really.

-Shawntel informs us this is the first time she’s been to Vegas. She’s from a small town called Chico, CA. Maybe it’s a small town, but anyone who knows anything about college partying knows Chico St. is always ranked in the top 10 in party schools in America. So the town should have at least a few partiers there, right? How this chick never made it to Vegas in 25 years is beyond me. According to the internet, the distance between Chico and Vegas is 442 miles. So either you’re too much of an embalming nerd that doesn’t like to have fun, or…well, I guess I just answered my own question. Despite her inner geekdom, Nipplehymen is smitten with Shawntel. “Shawntel is an incredibly sexy woman. She’s sexy without even trying to be, and that makes her more sexy.” I don’t see that, but whatever. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. Cute girl, kinda quirky, wouldn’t kick her out of bed by any means, but ummmm, yeah. The whole job thing. Good for her. She loves her profession, she’s dedicated to it, and that’s wonderful. Just enough of the dead people talk. She even said on the date that when guys find out about her profession they get kinda creeped out. Yeah, count me in. I’d go to bed every night (of course after a long night of passionate love making to her) thinking I’m gonna wake up in the morning and she’ll have gone Lorena Bobbit on me. Might cut into my beauty sleep.

-So Shawntel gets to go on a shopping spree on Brads, uhhhhh I mean, ABC’s dime. Of course, before any part of the date starts, Shawntel must go running and jump into his arms since they made a pact last week to do that. Whether or not this tactic actually works I have no idea, but it sure is cheesy to watch since we’ve seen women jump into the guys arms for what, 15 straight seasons now? Ummmm, what you’re doing isn’t original Shawntel. It’s actually nauseating. She must not have gotten a lot of hugs as a little girl or something. So even though Shawntel has never been to Vegas, and probably has no idea what’s in any of the stores, she basically gets to pick out anything she wants and its hers. Already some of you have asked if she gets to keep what she bought. Yep. She does. Just like Jackie got to keep her earrings from her date. In the past, this hasn’t necessarily always been the case, but since their budget has been going through the roof in recent seasons, giving someone $5k worth of clothes really isn’t that big of deal to them. You figure it’s the least they can do considering how manipulative and unreal the show is. Hell, she should ask for a week’s vacation to a destination of her choosing.

-After the shopping spree in which Dickinsideher already got to see Shawntel try on the dress that she’d be wearing that night, he picks her up for the date at the suite and tells her how fabulous she looks again. So he’s Mr. Short Term Memory now? “You look incredible.” You mean more incredible than she did a few hours ago when she had on the same dress? And lets face it, it’s not like Shawntel is a giant make-up girl or did anything really fancy with her hair. So basically you got the same package re-wrapped that you saw earlier in the mall. Whatever. Kind of lost its luster if you ask me. But hey, Brad’s got a date on a rooftop everyone! By the way, Michelle is not happy about Shawntel’s shopping spree and makes it known. Don’t know if it was because she wasn’t the one on it, or if it had anything to do with she’s the one used to having stuff paid for by older married men and she felt Shawntel hadn’t reached that type of “status” yet. I guess she feels she’s the only one that deserves that privilege of being pampered by rich, married men. Hey, it happens. There’s plenty of it going on in America and there always will be. You’re one of many, Michelle.

-So to say Shawntel and Kindlereaders dinner conversation was interesting is quite the understatement. Actually got a kick out of it to be honest. One of the few moments this season that I actually laughed. Of course it centered around her job being a funeral director/embalmer. Sexy stuff, I tell ya’. I mean, who wouldn’t get turned on by talks of incisions, embalming fluid, and my favorite, “draining the vein”? Did she really say that? I mean, really? I bet Whistleslimer had all sorts of thoughts running through his head when she said that. I know I sure did. But unbelievably enough, we actually got to see Brad laugh during this date. He managed not to turn into Robot Brad with the same phrases, same expressions, same overused adjectives, and all his apologizing. The guy actually cracked a smile over the ridiculousness of what Shawntel was describing to him over dinner. I mean, we saw the EDITED version. Imagine sitting there having to listen to all that in real time? I might’ve requested that she drain my vein to at least lessen the pain I would have to endure to sit through that. But of course in the end, he gave her a rose by telling her “You’re the hottest funeral director I’ve ever met.” And that may be the case. But, it’s not really saying much. It’s like winning first prize in the pig contest.

    IMO this was just a bad episode – so scripted and truly fake (except the teddy bear excerpts, maybe). A week in Vegas and they edited out the fun of being there – for the stupid therapy??? Yikers. Good plug for Aria, I guess. If I had been Shawntel, I’d have been truly p.o.d if all I got to do was go on the roof of the hotel I’m staying in for my one-on-one date – I’d have then insisted – take me all over town, dude – I just bought out the mall! RS – right on the nose about the 2-on-1 date with the Ashley’s. I have no doubt Ashley S knew she was leaving beforehand – she did not look at all happy, which kinda makes me believe they did tape her ITM the day before – stupid editing again. Brad looks more and more uncomfortable, too. The only thing worth waiting & watching for is to see what happens when he boots Michelle out.

    Well, you missed a TINY bit on the shopping spree…the handbag ALONE was $5000!!! What a waste of the “Pretty Woman” date on her. ITA on your assessment of her.
    On Ashley’s ITM after leaving…the 1st set of ITM’s she had NO MAKEUP on at all…followed up with the ones with full makeup. I missed the wardrobe difference..but caught the makeup snafu immediately. Definitely fishy in Denmark.
    Michelle’s comment as she corrals him alone and is leaving: “we don’t need to talk”. Uh..that’s because your lacking grey matter that works towards producing intelligent conversation. Yep..she’s the entertainment of the season alright. Unfortunate, because I would otherwise think she was a beautiful woman. She’s like nails on a chalkboard…and the tension between she and Chantal is like a purple elephant in the room!

    I hope this isn’t a question you already answered a hundred times, but why does Chris always call this, “the most controversial season”? What’s the controversy, or is it just because marketing did think call it the most boring season ever would work?

    According to NBC News and USA Today Ricky died in a plane crash on the way to the track in Martinville, VA. Emily told Brad on their first 1 on 1 date that Ricky died in a plane crash.

    Hmmm… does anyone think it’s possible that Emily is a plant? Maybe the producers chose her as the next Bachelorette before the show started in order to introduce her to the audience and tear at everyone’s heart strings. Maybe Emily and Brad both know that she’s just there to be set up for the next season, and they’re pretending to have a budding relationship — and Brad knows he needs to keep her there until the end and then “reject” her. It sure doesn’t seem like there’s much chemistry between them compared to Chantal or Ashley H. or even Britt.

    Or maybe I’m reading too much into this. 🙂


    February 1, 2011 at 7:13 PM

    I’m sorry, but Brad just creeps me out big-time. The women are entertaining enough, but everytime he opens his mouth waves of revulsion overgulf my fast-forward remote button. Yeah, Emily must be a plant because there seems zero chemistry except she’s hot.

  7. Rita_la

    February 1, 2011 at 7:20 PM

    I’ll never again have to wonder what guys say to each other when they’re alone because Steve writes it every week. Or maybe some guys just think about “fun bags” but don’t say it all the time.

  8. dori

    February 1, 2011 at 7:52 PM

    @Rita_la LOL I was thinking the same thing reading RS’s blog (altho it’s no surprise that most men think constantly – of only one thing)

  9. palm

    February 1, 2011 at 8:10 PM

    Brad looks like every other guy in West Hollywood to me. Overly groomed, waxed and workout addicted. Is this what guys from Texas really look like??

  10. JustJenna

    February 1, 2011 at 9:16 PM

    @Palm No. Guys from Texas look like average guys – most have a paunch and a hat, lol, but that’s about it.

    So what is the deal with Emily’s teeth?

  12. VibeCat

    February 1, 2011 at 10:34 PM

    RS – I noticed the clothing difference and other differences in Ashley S’s ITMs right away last and was wondering the same things. I hope you get to find the answers!

    Also, @boosmom96 – Ricky Hendricks started out as a NASCAR racer. He had a crash at Las Vegas which required surgery and months of healing and he decided to retire from RACING after that, thus “ending his RACING” career. He then became an owner like his Dad, he owned two teams. Then he died in that plane crash on the way to Martinsville. Thus the confusion in the statements.

  13. Penthe

    February 2, 2011 at 5:00 AM

    RS : I’m a little worried here, Ashley S. looks about… 16? And the whole teddy bear and baby voice doesn’t help. You’re attracted to women who look like this? Really? Kinda creepy.

    Your blogs used to be funny about 2 years ago, but now they’re just revolting, referrals to sex in almost every paragraph.. I know the show sucks big time, but it’s getting a little much, maybe you are trying to spike reader’s interest this way, or appear more mean in order to get more readers for your future “tabloid” blog. I remember when your blogs were actually funny, not repulsive and arrogant. We know you know, don’t need to repeat yourself 1000 times. Yes you have a few readers with short attention spans, but you probably have hundreds of thousands of readers who can actually read and aren’t stupid.

    This season is terrible. Brad’s schnozzle is so distracting, how can Chantal or any of these girls be in any way proud to be with this person is beyond me.

    Everyone wears veneers now, I had an 80s movie night the other day, watched four 80s movies in a row, and I was shocked to see how actors teeth looked like back then. WOW, big difference.

    “I love Cirque du Soleil” is probably the gayest comment ever.

    Again Steve, Ashley looks like a little girl, all your pervert comments, just Ew.

  14. RaRa

    February 2, 2011 at 7:50 AM

    The more I watch, the more I’m convinced that Emily was planted into this season to introduce her to the audience, create audience support, and set her up to be the Bachelorette.

    All you have to do is look back at Jason and Melissa’s season to see that when the audience feels one of the ladies is wronged in some way by the Bachelor (or the producers, in this case), public outrage creates an atmosphere of support for that “character”. I believe the producers have orchestrated all these “coincidental” (small plane, race track) faux pas for Emily, knowing that the audience will rally on her behalf and voila – she will be embraced as next season’s new bachelorette. Fleiss is willing to put up with some fans’ temporary outrage over their “insentitivity” since they will “redeem themselves” with the fans at the end.

    I really don’t see any chemistry between Brad and her, but that isn’t important as long as she gets to the end and then gets dumped.

    That is also why they are playing up the “controversial” aspect of this season. They want people to rally behind Emily due to her “insensitive” treatment by the producers.

  15. jax71868

    February 2, 2011 at 9:24 AM

    Great recap as always. I agree with one of the posts that said why is each season of this show “the most controversial”. What’s so controversial, that Brad came back? Well, we all knew that ahead of time so what’s the big deal? Also, I’m getting sick of Brad calling his therapist (Dr. Kajagoogoo 🙂 ) every episode. We get that Brad was (or is) in therapy and and helped, I guess, but do they need to show this every episode and shove it down our throats?

  16. adria921

    February 2, 2011 at 10:01 AM

    I LIKE that Brad calls his therapist. Maybe it will take some of the stimga out of most people thinking therapists are not helpful or it’s shameful to seek help for emotional problems.

  17. cellardoor1116

    February 2, 2011 at 10:42 AM

    I have no problem with Brad consulting his therapist, I just think they could have done better than Go West’s drummer/reformed “life coach”! I mean, clearly no reputable therapist would agree to go on national tv and “counsel” a patient when that goes directly against the confidentiality implicit in a dr/patient relationship.

    However, I kind of want to makeout with you for transcribing King of Wishful Thinking as his advice. Hilarious.

  18. aebms

    February 2, 2011 at 1:31 PM

    I just have to comment that I think Brad probably DID remember the color of Alli’s dress. If I remember correctly, it was on the FIRST night that she put her butt in his face and said that someone broke up with her because of the size of her butt, right? I mean, who could forget a big, green butt in your face?

    Also, I’m liking this Emily as a plant theory! RS – please dig deep and find this out for us.

  19. Sunnyside422

    February 2, 2011 at 3:00 PM

    Watching Emily…can she really be as vapid as she appears? If I was a guy next season (when she is the Bachelorette), would I want to get involved with someone who seems stuck in a past relationship and the constant reminder is her child? Find it hard to believe that any single man would choose her. Ready made family and all. He’d have to be extra special and we know the men chosen for this show are all interested in their moments of fame!

  20. adria921

    February 2, 2011 at 4:59 PM

    I almost chocked on my vino when Emily said she had “billions ” of guys head for the hills because being involved with her was ‘just too much’. Yes it’s true most single men without kids do not want a ready made family. if i were a man I would not want to deal with her an her snot nosed kid and all her baggage.

  21. HeidiT

    February 2, 2011 at 6:03 PM

    When Brad was hanging from the cables all I could think about was Gerhardt from the movie “28 Days” with Sandra Bullock, when suspended from cables he shouts “Oh My God! Look at my package!”

  22. mommyof2

    February 2, 2011 at 6:37 PM

    adria- you are an insensitive bully for referring to Emily’s daughter as a “snot nosed kid”. She is an innocent little girl who has never known her daddy, and for you to call her that is completely reprehensible. If you are fortunate enough to have children of your own one day, I hope your attitude will change. If you already do have children, God help them having a mom like you calling other kids who you don’t even know “snot nosed” and “baggage”. Disgusting.

  23. jennstinn

    February 2, 2011 at 6:42 PM

    I hate that Brad goes to a therapist. It is so stupid. Does anyone listen to that? I mean, we know that he’s going to say, “I met this girl, how do I let her know I’ve changed?” Please.

    I agree somewhat with the person that said Steve is using some vulgar language lately. It doesn’t bother me, but I mean, remember your audience here–I’m guessing most of us are women. We know you’re a man, you don’t have to prove it by talking about boobs all the time.

    I like Emily, but I am curious to see what “comes out” about her. And I wish RS would at least point us in the direction of what these secrets are…anyone know?

  24. adria921

    February 2, 2011 at 7:20 PM

    hey mommy – you can go straight to hell. if i want to call emily’s kid a snot nose i damn well will do so. and all you single mommies out there just know most single men without kids do not want to be involved with you. kids are a liability.

  25. jaxse

    February 2, 2011 at 10:15 PM

    Wow Adria, you seem like an extremely pleasant person. I bet guys are just lining up at your doorstep.

  26. Taishar

    February 3, 2011 at 12:57 AM

    lol Adria, you won’t be entering any congeniality contests will you? You know to comment about a single parent who is one not of their own accord (i.e. divorce) but because the other person DIED is pretty disturbing. Have you thought about getting yourself checked out to ensure you are human and have a heart? I realize we live in the “me” society and most everyone is entirely too selfish to dare have be with someone who has to divide their time between *gasp* another person such as a child, but being proud of that degree of “medom” is just kind of sad. Your comments remind me of the nurse character in “Shallow Hal” which I believe has an interesting lesson in its story, a concept that most 3rd graders can grasp. Then again, who has time to deal with that sort of “baggage” anyway, it takes away time from my favorite person in the whole wide world, myself!

  27. bachfan101

    February 3, 2011 at 6:07 AM

    I absolutley love Emily and think she is gorgeous and a sincerely genuine person, but I think she lacks the outgoing personality it takes to be the next Bachelorette. I hope she finds love, but I hope they cast a more entertaining girl as the next Bachelorette!

  28. bachfan101

    February 3, 2011 at 6:14 AM

    And I agree with everyone, that the therapist clips are extremely boring. I wish they would fill that time with footage of the girls at the house while Brad is on dates with the other girls. From the sounds of Chris Harrison’s blogs, they are pretty entertaing and we don’t get to see it. I think it would be nice if the Bach was on 2x per week (similar to dancing with the stars or American Idol) so we have more time to see behind the scenes footage of the girls. I think it’s interesting to see the relationships they form with eachother since they are mostly with eachother.

    adria, you are a cow, who obviously has major issues regarding children and single mothers. Jealousy perhaps? Are you a certified expert on single guys and single moms? You sure act like you are. Keep your rude, snide, snotty comments to yourself. I agree with mommmy – I hope to gawd you don’t have any kids of your own, because if you do, I feel sorry for them knowing that YOU consider children a liability.

    Awww now, poor Adria. She was obviously in her (vino)cups. You can always tell when she is sauced up as her proficiency in spelling, punctuation and capitalization goes way south. She’s just an angry, lonely, unattractive drunk – jealous of those who aren’t.

  32. lck2000

    February 3, 2011 at 12:29 PM

    adria, unless we’re talking about the sleaziest of men, a child is less of a ‘liability’ (because dating is clearly an athletic contest or capitalist venture) than a foul-mouthed bitter woman who thinks of dating as sport fishing and is obsessed with broadcast reality tv. fresh uterus or not.

    (saying the latter fully aware i am on this blog and have read to the bottom of the comments. but i’m already in a relationship so i don’t have to worry about being a ‘liability’, and more important i don’t break myself into facets of will-he-like-this-about-me; i just live, and thus love)

  33. aimgraham

    February 3, 2011 at 1:51 PM

    Maybe someone has mentioned this already, but I found it odd that Chris said that Marisa had been giving notes to Brad for a while, but on the show it seemed like it was the first time at the cocktail party.

    They need to get their stories straight…

    February 3, 2011 at 2:21 PM

    I’m a guy, and I see nothing wrong with Steve’s “vulgar” comments. Is he objectifying women to a certain degree in column after column? Yes. But for you women out there, don’t act like you are shocked and awed that guys act/think like this. The reason a lot of people come and read Steve’s column is because it’s entertaining and COMPLETELY DEVOID of any political correctness, if that’s even a term. It’s called the 1st amendment; as the old adage goes, if you don’t like it, DON’T READ IT! You’re welcome.

    P.S. Still nursing my Ashley S. hangover. Was really hoping your source was misinformed about her going home so early. Sigh, wishful thinking.

    Penthe…..Jealous much? Too bad that we cannot all have your sultry, sexy voice. Here in the south, we tend to talk sweetly….that’s just how we are. And how nice of you to give Ashley S such a compliment! If she looks 16 now, at 40 she will look 30….no botox needed for that southern belle!

    If you truely don’t think that RS’s blog is informative or funny, don’t read it! There’s a lot of us that do enjoy his humor.

    The season is about ONE thing – making Emily the next Bachelorette.

    Hey Steve, how do you come up with these funky nicknames for Brad?

    February 4, 2011 at 5:47 AM that’s what adria’s problem is..her drinking. Now it all makes perfect sense, thanks so much for letting us all know. Now I can just ignore her because I know the reason why she’s being the way she is. Or, is she always this way?? mmm..

    @monisia…..a lot of of the names are perverted “play on words” somewhat rooted from the last name that Brad had for a little while when he was younger. Steve touches on this a few weeks ago, check the archives.

    Steve, we havent talked in awhile….i wont say my name on here but im one of your close facebook buddies :)…I know im always ending up with crazy bachelor/ette ties (hint hint i live in the same town as ella and went to college with peyton), but turns out that my sister is a bridesmaid in a wedding next year that emily is in as well. My sister’s childhood best friend’s family are best friends with the Maynards…go figure. Ill send ya a msg sometime this weekend…hope youre doin well!

    I can’t believe anyone would complain about Steve’s vulgarity. His vulgar irreverence is what defines his columns! It’s why I read them. And they are EXACTLY the same as when I first started reading them 7 years ago. Haters get off this website.

    Hey Steve, you missed another botched editing job at the rose ceremony. Britt was called up to get her rose and then they flashed on one of the chicks looking all concerned (God, I don’t even remember her name, was it Lisa? She had curly long brown hair and she got practically no screen time, yeah, big surprise she was sent home!), and you could still see Britt’s red dress behind her! Britt should not have been there if it was done in real time, as she was with Brad at the time, accepting the rose.

    Other random thoughts on the episode:

    Chantal wears WAY TOO MUCH BLUSH!!! She looks likes she’s windburned her cheeks every week! And she’s overdone that “dewy” look. Bad makeup on her IMHO.

    Emily is sweet but boring – she is far too quiet to be the next Bachelorette. I just can’t imagine her making out with all of the guys. And agree, I see no chemistry between her and Brad. I don’t know whether she’s being forced to talk about Ricky all the time but it sure seems like she is still in mourning.

    Britt is very pretty but she is dangerously skinny.

    Brad looked scared when Michelle pounced on him and did her best sexy act. Was I the only one who thought he looked shocked and terrified??? I know what “turned on” looks like, and was not the way he looked.

    I agree…Emily does not seem to have a “bachelorette” personality…I can’t quite put my finger on it…but everything seems so forced with her and its not just her relationship with Brad.

    on page 2: “Ricky Hendrick of the Hendricks Motor Sports team was her husband”

    I thought Emily was not married to Ricky – am I right or wrong on this – anyone know?

    I caught that, too–no, they weren’t married, but I believe they were engaged.

    So as far as Michelle is concerned. My take on her is she’s an actress planted into the show to stir up controversy and to make the season more “colorful”. If you all don’t beleive me take a look at this trailer for a movie she stars in that hmmmmmmm was filmed long before this season of the bachelor was even filmed!

    Hairdresser my arse!!!

    I thought Michelle’s “kidnapping” of Brad was hilarious. To me, he didn’t look so much afraid as he did hypnotized. Michelle would say a sentence, looking deep into his eyes, then she’d kiss him; then she’d say another sentence, looking deep into his eyes, then she’d kiss him; etc.

    And by the way, one of the reasons I love reading Reality Steve is that his writing is NOT constipated by political correctness! If you find it too rude, crude or lewd … you don’t have to read it.
