Video Blog, An Update on the Laurel Interview, Why Chantal Isn’t the “Bachelorette”, & “Reader Emails”

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the info on Ashley H. being the new bachelorette, it definitely took me by surprise. I’ve been wondering if you knew who had been cast on Bachelor Pad 2 yet, and whether or not you know the major storylines they are going to be promoting (like the Wes/Gia “romance” or the Nikki/Juan animosity). Or at least if they are going to put together some contests that at least seem that they put more than 5 minutes and $10 into making them.

Comment: No. That show doesn’t start filming until June. There’s plenty of time for them to cast it. They’re in no hurry. The people that have been to the NY and LA reunions are pretty much the pool they’re going to choose from. Expect people like Kasey, Vienna, Craig R, Rego, Ashleigh Hunt, etc to make the final list. Nothing’s set in stone, but I’d say those people are pretty much locks barring anything crazy happening. Hell, Kasey and Vienna are practically a couple now so no doubt they’ll be on it.

One thing I can guarantee you is that Gia and Wes won’t be on it. That whole thing is over and done with and I highly doubt they’ll revisit it.

Do the girls know in what order other girls were eliminated or do they find out by watching the show or reading your blog?

Comment: Good question. I’m sure everyone that goes on that show is aware of my site and the spoilers. So if you’re eliminated on night one or two, obviously you don’t know the order of elimination for the rest of the episodes unless: 1) You read my site or 2) You talk to fellow cast members who lasted longer than you and you ask them. I’m sure that goes on. No way ABC can monitor stuff like that. These women become friends with others in the house. Contract states that you are not allowed to talk to anyone else on the show while it’s airing. If they honestly believe that doesn’t happen then they’re dumber than I thought.


Sometimes, when I feel the need to have my IQ drop a few points, I will go to other Bachelor blogs where the authors firmly believe that the franchise is real. My question is: If I email the authors of those blogs and tell them that I have some ocean front property in Outer Mongolia next door to where the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy live, would they fall for it?

Comment: Unbelievably enough, yes, they will. As much as some of you who frequent this site on a weekly basis may not realize, there are MILLIONS of people who watch this show who have no clue who I am, what spoilers are, think the show is real, and believe everything they see on their TV screen. WAY MORE believe it’s real, then don’t. I know that’s hard to believe, but it’s true.

Dear Steve,

Watching your vlog, I noticed you’re lacking in the wine department. May I buy you some two buck chuck or something from the-oh-so-close-to-me Sonoma Valley?

Oh, and I can’t find the spoilers for the season. I’m in Mensa, so I don’t think it is my fault.

Comment: I’m not a chick. I don’t come home after a long day at work and have to unwind with a glass of wine. Or five. I drink wine at dinner and that’s pretty much it. And since I’m not dating anyone right now, I don’t really see the purpose to have a loaded wine rack since it’ll never get used. If the situation calls for it, and I need to go buy some wine for that special someone, then I’ll do it. But for now, I love having just one wine bottle sitting in my wine rack. Makes me unique. And lonely. Ha ha.

    Okay, I admit I didn’t read all of the previous posts, so I’m definitely going to be repeating stuff, but these are the things I LOVE:
    1. Michelle: The absolute best part of the show this season was her awesome sarcasm. I wanted to slug Jackie. What was up with that?
    2. Emily. I’m SO happy she’s going to win and not Chantal. I don’t know if the “dirt” on her is true, but who cares? It’s not that bad of dirt, let’s be honest.
    3. Ashley’s new look. I know a lot of people are saying she needs to keep the nice, girl next door look, but I LOVE the bangs, and I think she needed a little makeup.
    4. Boca. 🙂

    Things I DON’T love:
    1. Brad. Great abs, but let’s be honest. Not a lot of interesting dialogue this season. The best scene was when Michelle shut him up.
    2. Ashely H. being the new bachelorette. I don’t know how much peppy girl speak I can take! And remember how awkward their Africa date was? Do you think she can do this?
    3. The Melissa vs Raichel thing. I’m so over this.

    There you go. Who agrees?
