For those that missed last night’s video blog, or are wanting to go back and watch it, for the first time, we’re having technical issues with Vokle, the site that hosts the show. It’s not loading correctly. I sent an email over there asking what happened, and they are working on it. As soon as it’s fixed, I will post it. I’m not sure when that’ll be, but when it’s fixed (if it even is), I’ll post it. It was 90 minutes of brilliance if I don’t say so myself. Ok, maybe not, but nonetheless, it was fun.
For weeks now I’ve been telling you I was told three locations where the show was headed this season, but hadn’t gotten 100% confirmation and I was waiting to see if they showed up in one one of them. If they did, then I’d give the other locations. I was emailed this morning a Twitter account based in Croatia that tweeted the “Bachelorette” was filming there. The Twitter account is @Dubrovnik_Com and it confirmed what I had heard before the season, that the show was going to be in Croatia. The three places I had heard were Bahamas, Croatia, and Madrid. Looks like the person who told me mixed up Bahamas with Bermuda, but considering they are now confirmed for Croatia, pretty much means the source was right and we can expect them to head to Madrid at some point. I wasn’t told if it was for the final rose ceremony, or just a stop along the way, but it’s safe to say they are going there at some point now.
It’s very difficult sometimes to run with stuff the second I hear it. I want to believe it’s true, but if I don’t get the confirmation I need, I have to wait. As I said yesterday, the second I heard that they were in one of the two places I knew about (Croatia and Madrid), then I would release the other one, which is why I’m telling you Madrid today (And Madrid is the city I was referring to earlier when I said it’s a country they’ve been to before – they were in Spain during Jillian’s season). I have no reason to lie about what I heard before the season. I told some people close to me a month ago when I heard it that Croatia and Madrid were two places they were headed. Hell, I believe I even blurted it out to a few people at the charity event this past Saturday night. But since I know they’re in Croatia now, it’s pretty obvious to me my sources were right since if someone knew 4 weeks ago that they were headed to Croatia, it’s pretty much a given they are headed to Madrid as well. If I felt confident enough in it back then, I would’ve told you back then, but to protect sources, I needed to wait until I had more solid info, or, got some sort of confirmation from somewhere else. And that’s what Twitter did today.
I’ve never been to Croatia so I couldn’t tell you a thing about it. But I guess it’s been a big place recently for films to shoot there, so, props to them. Dubrovnik? Hey, whatever floats your boat. Just like Ben’s season when pictures showed up of them in Puerto Rico and Belize, this season is no different. Social media is spoiling this show just as much as I am. Social media will give us pictures and locations of stuff, then once everything is all settled and done, I’ll fill in the blanks for you. I do it every season, and this season will be no different. Thanks for following.
