What’s the story with Michael Stagliano? Is he still riding solo or has that b*tch Holly left Blake and trampled her way back into his heart?
Comment: As far as I know he is. Lets hope he’s using his newfound fame from “Bachelor Pad 2” and his musical talents and making sure he’s sowing his wild oats. I gotta imagine he is.
Holly hasn’t left Blake. Poor guy.
First, your blog is awesome. I even read parts of your Bachelor recaps to my husband. We die laughing at your sarcasm! Keep up the good work. Two questions:
1. You stated in one of your last reader email responses, “If people knew what I knew this season, they wouldn’t doubt my info. Plain and simple.” Quit holding out the good stuff! I realize your job is to spoil the season, and you aren’t a tabloid and looking to air out dirty laundry, but I just imagine you hear some….interesting…things involving the contestants. Do you just let the tabloids do their business, or is there stuff that you know that is “juicy” that the tabloids never uncover? If so, I’d say that is pretty respectable in that you aren’t ever tempted to tell your loyal readers!
2. Hypothetical situation: YOU are on Bachelor Pad. Which female do you choose to pair up with and why!? (You can choose any from previous bachelor/ette seasons)
P.S. Wouldn’t Bachelor Pad be a little better if they got more creative with their challenges like Real World Challenge?!!! I mean, in Bachelor Pad we have a water balloon toss and egg toss, in “The Challenge” we have people climbing mountains, or being suspended 25 ft above water. Come on!! Also, what if they incorporated a final challenge where instead of handing out the last rose to the men/women, the two competitors had to duel it out…so many ways they could improve that show.
I’ll be looking for my email on your next batch of “Reader E-mails”
Comment: Ooooh, kinky. “I even read parts of your recaps to my husband.” Like, in bed at night before sexy time? Or at the dinner table when he’s belching? I need to know this kinda stuff. Maybe my column works as an aphrodisiac and I don’t even know it.
1) I was talking about HOW I know what I know. You already know what I know, and that’s the end result. If I told you how I know and where I got it from, that’d basically be selling out my sources. That’s not gonna happen. Look, I know that there are people out there who want me to be wrong because they dislike Courtney, and they’re holding out hope that whoever gave me the Ali/Brad endings initially are the ones that gave me this ending. They weren’t. I cannot tell you how confident I am in knowing how this season plays out. You’ll see.
2) Well, since you’re asking me now, I’d say Emily O’Brien. Why? Go read Tuesday’s column. It’s apparent I pitch a tent just watching her on TV.
I think the “Bachelor Pad’s” challenges will never come close to what the Real World/Road Rules produces. It’s not even in the same stratosphere. But then again, it’s a different show really.
I know I’m not the first person to say this, but you’re the only reason I watch the bachelor. Well…you, my best friend, and our weekly date to watch women fall apart due to alcohol, emotional trauma, and extreme exhaustion!
Before I started following your site, I thought that the show really was about finding true love (hey I was 16 years old! Give me a break). Now I realize, thanks to you, that it’s just about ratings and sex. Which has made it easy to not care who the lead is, who thee contestants are, or who “wins”. But it is damn good entertainment!
Good luck with the lawsuit. ABC should pay you for all of the publicity you generate and people you attract to the show! Or better yet, they should get you to be the next bachelor–it’s the only way they can get a spoiler-free season
Comment: Thanks for the email. I agree with everything you say.
Dear Steve, you are hilarious! Your nicknames for people are my favorites. Nothing tops “Weather Skirt” from Jillian’s season! Anyway, I wondered if you ever caught the show, “Cupid” that came out years ago, trying to compete with The Bachelor? I believe Simon Cowell was involved in that. It seemed completely fake but the couple in the end did seem to really care about each other. They actually seemed “normal.” Just wondering if you have the info. about what ever happened to those two? I remember the guy was named “Hank” but can’t remember the girl’s name anymore. Just a blast from the past and I was wondering if they can be added to the list of TV romances that never work out, or if they are the exception. Thanks!
Comment: Even though it was a Simon Cowell show, and I have a man-crush on Simon, I never watched it. Couldn’t name you one person that was on it, couldn’t tell you the first thing about it, nor do I have any update whatsoever on it. But in other news, I can officially admit this: I was dead wrong about X Factor vs American Idol. I thought for sure X Factor would immediately overtake Idol in ratings and Idol would suffer because of it. Not a chance. Idol is the gold standard when it comes to singing reality shows because of its originality. No matter what X Factor or The Voice does, people will still come out in droves to watch Idol. That isn’t changing. 29 million people watched Idol’s finale last season, which was one of it’s worst ones yet. That’s more than X Factor and The Voice’s finale audiences combined. Yeah, Idol isn’t going anywhere.
Have been reading your blog for about a year and look forward to Tuesdays for your comments on this train wreck of a show! I know you don’t reveal your sources, but I was wondering how you got started on spoiling The Bachelor/Bachelorette.
The video blog in Thursday’s column was fun. I tried to get my dog to howl and he had the same reaction as Maddie. She is adorbs!
Comment: My Bachelor spoiling started with Jason’s season. I’d never had a spoiler before that season, never cared about spoilers, and didn’t even know where to look for them. I got a call one day and someone told me about the secret taping that took place with Jason, Molly, and Melissa and I teased it for a month. No one believed me because they were convinced Jason had chosen Melissa. Which he did. Just no one knew about any secret taping and what happened at it, and two weeks before the finale aired, I blew the doors on it, and essentially that’s when RealitySteve.com was truly born. Ever since that day, this site hasn’t been the same. Kinda weird thinking back on it that we’re almost three years to the day that ATFR taping happened.
