So Sunday during the Super Bowl I was randomly tweeting things throughout the game (mostly about Fergie being fugly and how bad the Black Eyed Peas suck), but also threw this nugget in:

@RealitySteve “Hey, SB/Bachelor crossover: Aaron Rodgers and Shawntel both from Chico, CA. #uselessinformationtoimpressyourfriendswith”

Well come to find out afterwards that there is more of a crossover than I originally thought. As I’m googling “Aaron Rodgers girlfriend”, come to find that (shocking), he’s been linked to plenty of celebrities. From Jessica Szohr from “Gossip Girl”, to Erin Andrews of ESPN, to Hillary Scott lead singer of Lady Antebellum, and even a Sports Illustrated model. If you keep scrolling though, I came across this article that was posted a week ago. Of course, his parents denied all of them in the story meaning, yep, he’s probably banged all of them. Like he’s gonna tell his mom he’s swinging it around like that? Please. Also, Aaron Rodgers is apparently close friends with Shawntel’s sister, Destiny, and she was even his guest at the game Sunday. Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice. Why? Cuz this is Destiny:

Hubba hubba. Now, if I were to show you both of those pictures of Destiny and ask, “Where do you think Destiny has worked in the past?”, you’d probably answer, “Well, with a name like that and how she perfects the art of laying on a bar, I’ll go with strip club.” Close, but no. She bartends. Which basically is your first step on the way to stripping. Or working at Hooters/Twin Peaks/Bone Daddy’s. So congrats to Destiny for all her fine work. And oh yeah, her bartending too. Wanna know more about our little Destiny? Here’s a little background info on her. Question: Are we sure these two are sisters? I mean, geesh. I mean, one carves up dead bodies for a living while the other lets guys take body shots off her stomach at the bar. The Newton’s sure raised an interesting twosome. One thing I love about Destiny is she admits to getting all giddy when she met Jennifer Love Hewitt. It’s kinda hard to explain, but until my dying day, I will always have something for Jennifer Love Hewitt. Something about her makes me desperately want to make love to a school boy. And if you didn’t get that reference, I’m sorry, we can no longer be friends.

Pacific Magazine – A Date with Destiny

A lot of you have been on my case about the tabloid stuff that has and hasn’t been released about the people on this show. Some of it has, some hasn’t. Some has been in smaller doses, some in bigger (i.e. – Michelle admitting to her affair). I think I can tell you with pretty good certainty that the big story I’ve been telling you about is coming tomorrow. You’ll know it when you see it. With that said, I can’t wait to get bombarded with emails of people saying, “OMG! Did you hear about this?!!” Ha ha. I know it’s coming. That’s what I find amazing I guess. The people who tell me, “I love your column and read you all the time”, then ask me a question I’ve answered 100 times already. How is that possible? Anyway, what I think is coming tomorrow is nothing that is speculation or gossip or “sources say” or “insiders say” or “friends close to the situation say”. Nothing like that. A lot more concrete than the normal stuff you see. I’d say it’s a pretty big deal and will have a lot of people questioning what the hell they’re watching.

I wanted to point out something that was brought to my attention regarding this Chantal speculation about her still chasing after her ex-husband up until the day she left for the show. Sure, I’ve been hearing that for three months now, and it’s come from more than a few people. I wouldn’t easily dismiss that at all, and in fact, I have more reason to believe it’s true than it isn’t. However, what’s continually been asked to me is, “If that’s true, why wouldn’t her ex-husband just come out and say it and throw her under the bus?” Well that’s very easy to answer. Because Chantal’s ex-husband still manages one of her dad’s dealerships. You honestly think THAT guy is gonna talk to a tabloid and say, “Yeah, well she ruined our marriage because she cheated on me with a Mercer Island police officer, then once they were done, she came running back to me. I hate her for ruining what we had then coming back to me after realizing she’d messed up and wanting a second chance.” Uhhhh, no. The guy would lose his job in a heartbeat. You think Mike O’Brien is gonna let his former son-in-law trash his daughter publicly? Of course not. So just because it’s not her ex-husband saying these things publicly, don’t think it’s not people who know what they’re talking about. These were the same people contacting me three months ago telling me all this, which is why I said back then, “Hey, if these people are telling ME things about these contestants, don’t think they’ll hesitate to tell it to the tabloids”.

That’s why when I see her stories with “sources close to the situation” and “friends say”, it’s rather obvious that those “friends” are well aware of what went on, why the marriage ended, and what Chantal tried to do to get him back and they’re the ones trying to make Chantal look bad because they know what she’s really like. So like I’ve said, not EVERYTHING a tabloid prints is untrue, and in this case, they’re dead on. That’s why I’m having a hard time buying anything Chantal is selling on this show. Her marriage ended because she cheated, was finalized in Dec. of 2009, then wanted her ex husband back all the way up til leaving for the show in Sept. of 2010, and now four weeks into filming she’s telling Brad she loves him? Please. This chick is strictly out to win a competition and for attention. I don’t buy any of it, and ultimately, I don’t think Brad will either. Then again, these two might be two peas in a pod and deserve each other. Who knows? People are gonna have their favorites, and when someone says something bad about them, they’ll always think of something to defend them because God forbid the person they’re seeing on TV can’t possbily do anything wrong. This will be no different. Some will think it’s not a big deal. I tend to think it is if we are to believe what’s been presented to us all season. Hey, if I’m wrong, I’ll buy every single of my readers a steak dinner. When I’m not, you can thank me. On to last night…

-The show opens with Brad flying around Costa Rica in a helicopter talking about his journey. Brad: “Last time, at this stage in the game, I’m not nearly as emotionally invested than I am now.” Translation: So suck on that one DeAnna, Jenni, Bettina, and whoever else hometown I visited. I basically had checked my emotions at the door all season and didn’t give a rat’s ass what happened. But now, I’m a changed man in case you didn’t know. I talk to 80’s hair band drummers disguised as therapists to tell me what to do with my life. I say the same phrases over and over in hopes that it’ll be drilled into people’s heads how seriously I take this process. Well, somewhat seriously. Six episodes in and we are still being told how much more open to the process he is this time. The more he says that, the harder it is to believe. One episode? Fine. Two? Ok, we get it. Three? It’s getting beaten to a pulp. Six episodes in? I want to poke my eyes out with a letter opener then stab myself in the gut fifty times. The women somehow let Michelle drive them from the airport to where Brad was staying. Whoa. You let crazy behind the wheel? If I’ve learned anything in life, it’s this: Don’t let women drive.

-Brad greets the ladies like he just got back from a round of golf. Nice polo, dude. Where’s your Tony Romo cap to complete the full douchenozzle look? He leaves a date card for the women which says, “Chantal O. Close your eyes, hold on tight, love is in the air tonight.” Uh oh! A date card that says the word “love” in it. We all know what that means. Mount Michelle is about to erupt. Michelle: “If Brad is more interested in Chantal than I am not his girl. I just hope she gets attacked by monkeys. Or apes.” As much as I want to dislike Michelle, I honestly can’t. Sure she’s a horrible person who sleeps with married men and then claims to not have a clue they were married, but hey, who hasn’t ya know? On THIS show, she’s gold. She introduced us to the “Boom!” elbow, she’s the only person this season I can remember saying anything remotely funny, and she’s hot to boot. Can’t go wrong there. So hats off to the ABC casting department for finding this gem. She’s been totally worth it. You did well casting her “crazy” character this season. I mean, for six episodes now, this chick has stolen the show in all her ITM’s. Why would this episode be any different? Which is why I always say that no matter who the “lead” is in this show, it doesn’t matter. The show is made by the 25/30 bachelor/ette contestants they cast and NOT the lead doing the choosing.

-Michelle is still not done ranting about Chantal getting a date. “She’s really aggressive, over confident, and a bit egotistical.” Wait, huh? Michelle just said this? About Chantal? Talk about the irony of all ironies. Maybe when Michelle said that she was looking into a mirror or something. Whatever the case, chalk another one up to Michelle for a classic one liner. As for Chantal’s date, Brad picked her up in another solid polo from the IZOD collection apparently, and they went zip lining. And as is the case with all of Chan-clevages dates, it rained. You know how I know this? Because Brad figured it out all by himself. (Scene of it raining) Brad: “Is it raining? Oh, it IS raining.” Man, he’s a good one. Very observant. He was able to deduce by looking in the sky and seeing water fall from it that there was precipitation falling on them meaning, well, it’s raining. But that didn’t stop these two from charging full speed ahead. No, sir. They zipped their way through the jungle anyway like two lovers that’ll inevitably break up. So while they’re still in each others good graces, Chan-cleavage has this to say after tandem zip lining with Brad. “It’s definitely a different position to have my legs wrapped around Brad, but something I can get used to.” Uh huh. This chick couldn’t be any more horny if she tried. I just want to point something out here. You realize how many times these two have made out and been all over each other in six episodes compared to Brad and Emily? And some people really think that I was told the wrong thing and that he chooses Emily? Really? I mean, REALLY? There are some awfully naive people in this world.

-After zipping through all of Costa Rica, it’s time to get down to business. Like Chantal in more of her element, you know, a low-cut top letting the world in on all her glory. And bam! Exactly what we got of her in her flowery sun dress with cleavage for days. They decide to have a picnic outside where they can get romantic. Miss Rackenstein: “I’m feeling things tonight I dreamt of feeling one day.” Whoa, whoa, whoa. Can we get a little more descriptive on that. Like, feeling things within your own lady parts, or feeling things between Brad’s legs? I wasn’t really sure where she was going with that. Well, yes I was, I just wanted to hear her say it. She’s already shown us she’s one of the horniest women this show has ever cast, and rightfully so. I mean, when you chase your ex-husband for months all the way up til leaving for this show and he keeps rejecting you, then you gotta turn somewhere else. But once again, these two get rained on and now a damp, wet, dripping Chantal must run inside Brad’s bedroom. She’s also now soaking wet from the rain.

-So naturally when you’re on a date and you get rained on and you’re forced to go back to the guy’s place, it’s imperative that you strip down to only your chonies and his long sleeved dress shirt. Honestly, I practically went CSI in this scene trying to figure out if she had anything on under that shirt. My guess, knowing that Chantal is basically just a walking estrogen bomb waiting to explode? Uhhh, that would be no. Brad’s reaction: “This is the hottest I’ve seen you.” Yeah, well that pretty much sums it up right there. Goodnight everybody! You know, sometimes people with zero sense of humor email me asking why I’m always making a bunch of sexual jokes or always talking about boobs. Ummmmm, have you watched this show? The show is laced with so many sexual scenes and sexual innuendos just waiting to happen, it’s my job to make fun of it and point them out. I mean, for Christ sakes, we had a guy and a girl standing in a bedroom last night with him practically pitching a tent while she stood in front of him with nothing on but his shirt. And you want me to talk about “Ohhh, these two are so in love with each other. You can really see that these two connect on such a deeper, emotional level.” Bullsh**. I’m gonna talk about how he wants wanted to knock the bottom out of that for the rest of the night and how she would’ve let him in a heartbeat. If that offends, then you’re reading the wrong column. Been doing it for eight years and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon.

-Boobs McBreasts: “I like being rained on with you. Especially in your cute comfies. I like that. This is real to me. I’m crazy about you. Do you not see that?” Oh trust me, honey. He sees that. Right through that white shirt of yours checking out that baby maker. Brad’s making no bones about, well, how badly he wants to jump her bones. Brad: “This could happen every night.” Chantal: “I want it to.” Not that Brad needed this Costa Rica date to solidify Chantals standing in the show (hell, he would’ve booked her overnight room after the Catalina date), but I seriously am beginning to question if any other woman this season came close to making his private stand at attention the way it did when he was with her. I mean, Ali has practically admitted since her season ended that it was Roberto since Day 1 and she basically just went through the motions for all the other episodes. Sure, you have to date the others and give them chances, but in the end, you signed up for a show. You HAVE to be in 10 or so episodes. You can’t just skip to the end, even though you probably want to. I said it Dec. 8th, and I think I’ve mentioned it somehow, some way in every column since that Brad chose Chantal. What we’re seeing in these first six episodes is just more confirmation of it. Emily is just along for the ride at this point. So if you want to compare and contrast how he talks to each one, be my guest. It’s a waste of time. It’s not like he’s going to make his decision on Mar. 14th and we’re still in the process of trying to figure out which one he likes the best. The show has been over for 2 ½ months. He chose and is engaged to Chantal. End of story.

    Nice…and producers chose to make Chantal’s first 1-on-1 the same week as Dr. Drew group date, so she wouldn’t have to answer the cheating question. Every time I read your insight/exclusive intel into this show, it sinks more and more into my brain that there’s such a low percent of reality in this “reality show”–not that you hadn’t already convinced me of that.

    Holy she-ite Frank, I never even thought about that until you mentioned it. Jesus. Such a shame, because Chantal WAS my favorite. All that glitters isn’t gold I guess.

    I love all of your references to Lost in the past couple of recaps. I miss that show.

    Oh, and I was so glad they didn’t waste any screen time this week of Brad talking to his therapist. I guess they didn’t want to pay to fly him all the way to Central America and house him there, too.

    Brad was not totally crazy about the cave being 40 million years old. Recent estimates of the age of the earth are about 4 billion years. Humans have probably been around for about 2 million years. A cave could easily be many millions of years old. Unless you are a biblical literalist, and then everything was created at the same time 6,000 years ago. I’m not a fan of Brad, but I wanted to stick up for him on this one.

    February 8, 2011 at 1:49 PM

    I wish Chantal would tone down the makeup. It’s so thick, you could scrape it off with a spoon! Those bright cherry cheeks. Ugh.

    With every show, poor Bwaddie shows us how totally dorky he is. This guy is the most boring creature and is fast becomming the worst Bachelor ever. I can’t even watch when he sucks face with these babes and it’s plenty hard to do without lips! He is so not attractive. No wonder he is alone at 38…and will be again when Chantal dumps him! Wonder if he will have the balls to dump her first….nahhh…he won’t want to admit he was duped!

    And may I say that if Emily accepts the show, she will be totally boring and dull…unless she is saving her personality for her Bachelorette on air time!

  7. Sunnyside422

    February 8, 2011 at 1:59 PM

    Had to share…I just read Eudie Tuesday’s blog about the show! For the female version of Steve and some added giggles, suggest you all read hers every Tuesday! Awesome! Steve…maybe she is the woman for you!

    Regarding the horses comment – Steve both of the horses they were riding were mares (female) and the smaller ones were young colts. At that age, they are still milking and will follow their moms wherever they go and haven’t been weaned yet. They weren’t donkeys or miniature horses. They’re just too young to be separated yet from their moms.

  9. Taishar

    February 8, 2011 at 2:27 PM

    The Big Ben comment was priceless Steve, that alone made my day. I cannot believe last week people were getting uppity about your column being perverse and crude. The show thrives on the sexual undertones and if the “fantasy suite” doesn’t relay that I am not sure what else would for people who don’t wish to acknowledge it for what it actually is, hey the producers know what sells. A pleasurable read as always Steve.

    Did anyone notice the horrific editing job during Alli & Brad’s dinner? Her lips went from super-glossy to completely bare and then back to caked on with ultra-shiny lipstick–all during what was supposed to be the same conversation. Thanks to you, RS, I actually look for these kinds of blatant f-ups by the producers. And they never disappoint!

  11. jennstinn

    February 8, 2011 at 4:58 PM

    Loved this recap, Steve! Super funny. And when Alli was talking on their date about not “being able to see him at the end of the aisle…” I was like girl…no… I half expected Brad to say the exact line back to her. I thought the cave was the least romantic date yet–who wants to walk through bats and then sit on hard cold rock for a “picnic” in the dark?!

    Steve- I agree with you about Michelle… I like her too. There’s no way she’s really that psycho, and she’s been the only source of entertainment all season. I look forward to seeing her, Vienna, and Rated R on BP2!

    As for Chantal, I haven’t liked her since Day 1. The constant crying, whining and flooziness makes me nervous. Now hearing the reason for her divorce makes her all the more disagreeable. Furthermore, the physical way she talks disturbs me… she’s like a bad ventriloquist; she always has something to say but never moves her lips!

  15. mtnmchgrl

    February 8, 2011 at 7:58 PM

    Alli’s date was AWFUL. It was The Goonies meets LOST & then they had to have dinner on a lily pad. Then he sends her home! But keeps Michelle, who, I don’t care if she is getting a bad edit or not.

  16. kula

    February 8, 2011 at 8:12 PM

    Pretty sure the reason that Michelle is still on the show is because they wanted her in the SI swimsuit episode because she goes home at the end.

    February 8, 2011 at 8:48 PM

    I hate to be the resident nerd, but I have to second onecomment’s post…the earth is generally accepted by geologists to be about 4.5 billion years old. Sure, modern humans have only been around for about 200,000 years (and a little over 2 million years if we’re talking about ancient humans too), but it’s not at all unusual for a cave to be 40 million years old. So, I guess ABC checks their geology facts before telling Brad what to say….ha.

    February 8, 2011 at 8:49 PM

    Hi Steve- hilarious recap, I’m still chuckling over some of your comments & nicknames. Love the one “they let crazy drive”, although she only probably drove 3′ for the cameras. So curious as to what news is coming out that will affect the show’s credibility. You should have called a guessing game again. I’m thinking it has to do with Emily applying for the Bachelorette role but they had to plant her on Brad’s season to win the audience’s love??? hmmmmm,
    Or maybe Michelle was cast just for publicity reasons for her movie that just came out, what perfect timing….or maybe Papa O’Brien wants to expand his empire to Texas with Chantal running it cause I can’t imagine Brad leaving his businesses/family for Washington nor her leaving her position with dad to be with Brad in Texas.
    any hints, pretty please?

  19. kc

    February 8, 2011 at 10:32 PM

    My guess .. and i emphasize *guess* because that is all it is .. is that chantal was pregnant during the filming.. meaning she came on not knowing she was pregnant but possibly found out during filming.

  20. sweetncrazy

    February 8, 2011 at 10:40 PM

    I’ve been a fan of your blog for awhile – since DeAnna’s season. I’m just wondering why you haven’t addressed the BRAD + BETTINA rumours that floated around a few weeks ago?!?! I’d say it’s a pretty juicy tidbit, no? For anyone who doesn’t remember… she placed 3rd during his FIRST time as The Bachelor when he picked NO ONE!

  21. dg84

    February 9, 2011 at 12:17 AM

    that one line should read, People have been around for hundreds of thousands of years.

    February 9, 2011 at 12:38 AM

    I’m with kc. I’m thinking there’s a pregnancy about to be revealed. Just not sure who’s got the bun in the oven – Michelle? She has acted psycho enough to blame her behaviour on pregnancy hormones. On the other hand, wouldn’t the powers that be make sure all comers (hahahahaha!) are bump-free before allowing them on the show? Wouldn’t they have them take a pregnancy test?

  23. FanofSteve

    February 9, 2011 at 12:45 AM

    A question about Monday’s rose ceremony: Did anyone except me think that the way Brad said Michelle’s name when he picked her to receive the last rose sound like he was choosing her reluctantly? Was he told to keep her?

    Seriously, he already knows that life with her as a significant other would be sheer hell. She’d question every move he’d make and would get mad at the drop of a hat. He’d spend his whole life a)apologizing and/or (b)explaining why he’d done or said what he’d done or said. Can’t see any guy wanting that regardless of how good a bed bunny she might be.

  24. Nobody

    February 9, 2011 at 6:03 AM

    US Magazine is running with a story that says Brad proposed to his on / off again girlfriend Lisa Kagay just weeks before filming started. This is most likely the news….


  25. Nobody

    February 9, 2011 at 6:08 AM

    The US Mag article also says Brad continued to send emails after he left for filming. I guess it can be assumed he was emailing her DURING filming.

  26. D-Runner

    February 9, 2011 at 6:15 AM

    Article says she dated Brad for 8 years, and this is also the girl that was supposedly dating Wes when he was on Gillian’s season, who Wes said he dated for 5 years… so was she going back and forth between Brad and Wes??

  27. Nobody

    February 9, 2011 at 6:30 AM

    Oops…. her name is Laurel, not Lisa.

  28. debb0

    February 9, 2011 at 6:35 AM

    and an older article from 2007 says they have a child together,
    which if true, has never been mentioned on his current season.

  29. Darwin

    February 9, 2011 at 6:42 AM

    I also have to mention the 40 million year old cave – maybe you went to some bible-thumping school Steve (you do live in Texas), but it is entirely possible that the earth is that old, and in fact it is much, much, older…The Grand Canyon, just to use an example: “The major geologic exposures in the Grand Canyon range in age from the 2 billion year old Vishnu Schist at the bottom of the Inner Gorge to the 230 million year old Kaibab Limestone on the Rim. There is a gap of about one billion years between the stratum that is about 500 million years old and the lower level, which is about 1.5 billion years old.”
    I enjoy reading your column every week and like the clever, sarcastic tone you usually take (sexist generalizations about women notwithstanding); however, I found your ignorance on this subject incredibly disappointing. You can publish this comment or not, and you probably won’t, but just had to say something, sorry…

    juliejulie – might be wise of you to stop using Steve’s blog to promote your own. That’s really, really tacky on your part.

    February 9, 2011 at 8:08 AM

    Is it just me but I think Chantel is wearing the same dress on final rose ceremony on episode 3 and 6. Obviously she didn’t hire a stylist like crazy Michelle.

    The US magazine article….not really that suprising unless you’re name is Chantel.

  32. jennstinn

    February 9, 2011 at 8:20 AM

    I hope this US Mag article isn’t what RS was talking about–because I don’t really see why that matters. I mean, we all knew that the Bachelor/ette had contact w/ people at home throughout show–it’s not surprising that they might talk to exes, especially if they’re not sure they’re going to find someone.

    But I thought this news was supposed to be about one of the girls? I still haven’t read anything “explosive” about Emily

  33. jennstinn

    February 9, 2011 at 8:26 AM

    So just read RS’s tweets–maybe there’s worse stuff in the magazine

  34. luv it

    February 9, 2011 at 8:48 AM

    Star magazine has article w/Pickels birth father…fyi

    No real dirt here either…

  35. junkfilter777

    February 9, 2011 at 8:53 AM

    Yeah, I hope there is more to this story than just ‘Brad *HAD* a girlfriend back home’ who he proposed to.

    Honestly, so what? If he proposed and she rejected him, then he is a free man as far as I am concerned. If you let someone go then they are no longer yours.

    I commend people who can move on instead of dwelling on the past and it’s no big deal if you try to make something work with someone, they reject you, and you move on.

    Besides, this is the THIRD season this exact same woman was connected to a bachelor back home. Yawn.

    So unless there is more to this story, I really don’t see the big deal. Brad is no virgin. He has had relationships. He has been in love. He has talked about marriage before. But unless it is something current (as in, he is currently wooing her), then I see no scandal.

    I guess I will have to wait until more details come out because as it stands, this is no big deal.

    I truly hope this isn’t what we’ve all been waiting for. lol

    Also, Chantal apparently tried to win back her ex right before the show. Perhaps since both Brad and Chantal allegedly tried to reconcile an old relationship, they can understand where each other was coming from.

    February 9, 2011 at 9:35 AM

    OK Steve, I’m sorry to be dense here, and you can totally make fun of me on your next post…but this story is just not that big of a deal. Who’s the train and who’s the tricycle that you were talking about? Spell it out for those of us that cannot figure it out on our own please.

  37. Kerry

    I meant to add that the story isn’t THAT big of a deal because we’ve come to expect this kind of crap with this franchise (mostly in part to you opening our eyes). Is there some other chit about to hit the fan that will give the big buildup credence?

    OMG Steve, I spit out my lunch after I read the part about the tarantula on Bobby Brady!!! I’m still laughing about that…but wasn’t it on Peter Brady???? ha ha…I know I’m really lame but I had a huge crush on Peter Brady and I am going to have to google that. Way hotter than Greg. Especially when he had trouble when his voice was changing…
    Also, Steve, yes, that cave could definitely be that old, and honestly you don’t think that line was fed to him by someone who would have checked that tidbit out first? Hmmm, maybe I am giving the show too much credit.

    I’m sure this has already been mentioned in the other comments… but Steve is pretty ridiculous, outrageous, and ignorant for his rant (and complete lack of general knowledge) on the earth being around prior to Christ’s death. Earth is over 4 billion years old — good grief!! Haven’t you seen Jurassic Park? The dinosaurs roamed the earth 230 million years before being extinct 65 million years ago — how could you not be aware of any of this?

    Oh yeah, and Sunnyside, totally agree about Chantal’s makeup. I was so relieved when they got caught in the rain. It appeared to have washed alot of her dewy blush off. lo and behold it was back again at the rose ceremony. I hope she is watching the show now and realizing its big time overkill. Raggedy Ann called and wants her makeup back.

    While I enjoy reading this blog, I was annoyed by Steve’s blatant ignorance in his latest post.

    First of all, those “miniature horses” following them around were actually foals (which are baby horses, by the way). Wasn’t it obvious that they looked like babies? They will follow their mothers around until they are weaned at an older age.

    Secondly, yeah, the Earth is over 40 million years old. Even more shocking, the Earth is estimated to be around 4 BILLION years old. Which means a lot of rock formations on Earth, including the cave they went in, are extremely old and started forming long ago. If our early ancestors walked the Earth around 2 million years ago, how hard is it to believe the cave Brad crawled in really is 40 million years old?

    I get that you like to make jokes, but check your facts first.

    I have to agree with some of the posters here that Steve, your ignorance is evident in some of your comments regarding the age of the Earth and the little horses. It was so obvious that the tiny horses were foals (baby horses) following their mothers. And, I didn’t find them distracting at all: I thought they were absolutely adorable!

    Even so, I do get a kick out of your sarcastic recaps and observations, and I love reading the spoilers for this show as well as other inside information. I could do without the sexual innuendo, but whatever. I also like your references to Lost, Brady Bunch,. and other 70’s and 80’s shows references in your columns.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t read Steve’s blog to learn about horses and geology.

    Please just keep the inside info and your male perspectives on-a-coming.

    Ummm, the world started just 2000 years ago? You actually believe that? Have you also heard of a BRAND NEW theory called “evolution?” Check it out.

    I also was pretty surprised at the ignorance shown by steve re the age of rock formations. I just quicked googled a costa rica cave tourist site and the last one mentioned on the website has rocks 60-70 million years old. They also mention one which is “relatively young gelogically speaking” at 25 million years old.

    also, sorry to pull you up again but Michelle said Britt before Jackie.

    Jesus H. Christ (no pun intended), can all of the amateur armchair Evolution/Geology experts just STFU? Last time I checked, this wasn’t a Geological History blog, it was a REALITY TELEVISION blog. Steve was more than likely just trying to be funny and get a rise, and what do you know, apparently it worked. Maybe all of the know-it-alls in the above comments can band together and start their own Geological History blog, and all 7 of the people who actually give a flying you-know-what about the subject can go read that every Tuesday instead…just a suggestion, you’re welcome.

    I enjoy reading your posts. Gives me a whole new perspective, now that I’ve abandoned my desire for seeing “true love.”
    Altho the earth is 4.5 billion years old and something (red swimsuit)is either knit or crocheted…not both. Shame on your blunder about the earth but totally understandable that a guy’s guy like you wouldn’t know diff between knit and crochet…but now you do. Want to discuss the finer points (!!) of needlepoint?

    littlestar, chill already. Obviously, you are not familiar with Steve’s sarcasm, so, until you are, don’t take what he puts out here so seriously..please!
