I’ve never heard you reference the Bachelor season called, “More to Love”. Was that not part of the same franchise? I’m wondering why they never did that again – do you happen to know? That was my favourite season so far. Thanks for your entertaining website – it’s my guilty pleasure.
Comment: It was. Created by Mike Fleiss, and basically was the same exact show except with fat people. Why didn’t it happen again? Simple. Because for the most part, viewers want to see attractive people on TV. Unless it’s the Biggest Loser where those once-large people are now striving to better their lives, people naturally tend to gravitate towards good looking people. You think they’re gonna stock “Grey’s Anatomy” with a bunch of ugly looking doctors? Of course not.
Love your blog! Even though I know all the spoilers, I still watch the shows (Big Brother, Bachelor/Bachelorette)…….makes it more enjoyable for me already knowing who’s leaving!!! Funny on Bachelor Pad the other night, Graham was wearing the rose in a scene prior to when Michelle leaves to go get him the rose. And, Vienna getting the ring from Kasey while they were wearing their somewhat formal vote-off ceremony attire while that was a ways off…..apparently the editing is done very poorly on this show.
I feel exactly the same way you do about Jeff leaving Big Brother……not only was he the best eye candy ever, he was the only reason to keep watching. I will continue to watch even though it will be difficult. I am rooting for Rachel & Jordan……I can’t believe I heard Adam flipped and is now with sexless, classless and clueless (Kalia/Shelly/Porsche…..not that you couldn’t figure that out)! I know Rachel is annoying as hell but for some reason I can’t help but root for her. I wanted her or Brendan to win from the beginning and I hope somehow she can pull this out. Maybe it’s like the car wreck on the side of the road and you can’t look away…….I have no idea why I pull for her……but I do.
Lastly, I heard Jackie & Ames broke up……it sort of saddens me since although Ames was like a robot, I really hoped he had found true love…..what was I thinking huh? On Bachelor Pad, yeah right LOL. Do you know why they broke up? Just some curiosity on my part
Comment: This isn’t the first email I’ve received regarding Big Brother, so let me explain something. I don’t write the Big Brother recaps. Never have, and never will. Why? Because I’ve never watched the show. I don’t know the first thing about what’s going on. That’s why at the beginning of every recap, it clearly states, “Written by: Scott Ottersen.” Check out his recaps. They are very funny even though I have no idea what he’s talking about. He writes every Friday that covers Wed & Thurs shows, and every Monday, which recaps Sunday’s show.
I have no idea why Ames and Jackie broke up. If I had to guess, maybe it was because they were America’s most least interesting couple. Two people that claimed to have fallen in love in the 5 days they were on the show. Then they take a weekend trip to Napa a week later, then, a week after that, they were broken up. Ahhhhh, life in “Bachelor” world. Happens all the time. Won’t be the first time a hookup on this show fizzled after just a few weeks, and certainly won’t be the last.
Would like unicorn scratch and sniff please 😉
One Bachelor/ette franchise question: Do you think ABC re-edits promo clips/etc based on what spoilers are released? ie Would they re-edit coming attractions to make it seem the spoilers were wrong or is all that editing done once and left at that?
Comment: I wouldn’t be surprised if they did, but I have no idea if they actually do. If they do, I’d say moreso for the “Bachelor” and not the “Bachelorette” because the “Bachelor” ends filming during Thanksgiving week, but doesn’t air its first episode until after the new year. So that’s five weeks of downtime to edit the show how they want. And considering my spoilers will be out long before the first episode airs, it gives them plenty of time to craft a story that might stray you away from all the spoilers I’m giving.
Take last season for example, when I released all the Brad spoilers, they knew everything I’d released was correct except for the Chantal/Brad part. So did they choose to play up the Chantal/Brad connection to keep people believing I was right? Based on the first five or six episodes and the way she was edited, I’d say yes. But I could never prove it. Lets see how this season plays out. I’m already telling you right now I’m going to have the whole season nailed down to the final 1 because I believe in my sources. Depending on when I can release it will all depend on how they might edit a few of the women. We shall see.
Love your column, thanks for the spoilers! I was hoping that you can give us an update of ex Bachelor/Bachelorette castmembers that are currently dating. Wondering what is going in with some of the relationships that were starting on Bachelor Pad (if anything) Holly/Michael/Blake – Ella/Kirk – Ames/Jackie – Michelle/Graham.
Comment: Holly/Blake – Are goo goo ga ga over each other and from what I hear, Holly is moving to South Carolina very shortly.
Ella/Kirk – Nada. Nothing. Not a couple.
Ames/Jackie – Were broken up over a month ago.
Michelle/Graham – Are very good friends that I don’t believe are labeling their relationship at this point. She’s a single mother who lives in Utah, and he lives in NYC. Kinda tough.
