The Bachelorette 8 - Emily

The Bachelorette Recap: Wait, There is No Love Clock?

Emily started making the rounds this week on the talk show circuit and, wow, she’s been coached well. From her conference call, to her local appearance on Charlotte TV, to “Good Morning America,” to “Live with Kelly,” to Jimmy Kimmel, this chick has the same canned answers nailed down. I don’t even know why people are bothering to ask her questions anymore. She’s programmed to say the same things in every interview. Here’s some of the repeating phrases I’ve heard, “I was happy before the show and I’m happy now,” “I learned a lot about myself in this experience,” – the list goes on. But you know what else she’s repeated a couple times? That when she saw the guys the first night, if this were her “normal life,” she probably wouldn’t have given them a chance. Yikes. A little harsh no? And she keeps reiterating that she’s glad she went through with the process because, essentially, none of these guys met her criteria based on their first impressions. A little rough, no?

Yesterday morning, ABC had accidentally released their “Diaries of the Departed” video on their website which showed Kyle, Aaron, and Joe giving their farewell speeches so I tweeted it out to let people know who was eliminated. Within an hour or so, ABC had set the video to “private,” so obviously someone screwed up by letting that out there a day early. Has a show that’s been on 10 years like this show has ever had this sloppy of an editing department? I mean, we can go back years and years and find numerous occasions of editing mishaps, things being shown out of order, etc. I wonder if there’s any accountability for it, or if they just brush it under the rug as no big deal. It’s one thing to show Rego having a cast on one leg, then in the next shot it’s on another, because that was explained. But releasing who gets eliminated before the episode airs was obviously a mistake or else they would’ve just left it up there all day.

Remember back months ago when I posted the listing for the mansion on Marvin Road that the guys were living in this season? At the time, it was being listed for $3.9 million. Now the mansion is going to get 3 episodes on national television and now it’s being listed for $5.9 million. Amazing what one television show can do for the housing market. Here’s the most recent article on the house. That’s crazy. Especially when a bunch of beekcakes probably just urinated all over the place and trashed the walls. Not to mention what the shower drains are probably filled with. You know. 19 guys, no female companionship to speak of…just sayin. I hope the maid service spent extra time squeegee’ing the showers.

Our “Keeping up with the Kardashians” writer, Bill Hudnutt, is back covering the latest season which premiered on Sunday. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the link to his column, or you can navigate there by clicking on “TV Shows” at the top of the page. His column will regularly appear every Monday after the show airs.

The episode-by-episode spoilers are coming. I just don’t have everything yet. When I do, I’ll post them. Hopefully it won’t be too long. Definitely a chance for your regular emails or “Dr. Reality Steve” emails to make Thursday’s column. Even though you’ll have plenty to digest with the Arie stuff, there will still be emails to read over so send any and all emails to Lets get started…

    Steve’s “semen in the shower” comments didn’t offend my sensibilities… the comments were just unnecessary. I mean, really, don’t you have to be like a 14 year old boy to think that’s funny? It’s just not. It’s like thinking fart jokes are funny. HaHaHa, I farted. It’s very Beavis-&-Butthead-esque. Really? That’s all you’ve got?!

    The truth is, though, 99% of us come here for spoilers, so I think most of us could give a sh*t less if his recaps are funny or not– as long as the spoilers are there. Sadly, they’re just not. And I have a feeling they’re not gonna be. If he doesn’t even have spoilers for the first few episodes yet, it’s not looking good.

    Does anyone have any recommendations on other sites to see spoilers? Maybe not episode by episode spoilers, but at least who is F1? I haven’t found anywhere that Jef is F1. All I can find is the final 2. 🙁
    I like the inside information that Steve gives (like the fake Love Clock) which is why I read this blog. If he keeps adding those in the episode recaps, I will keep reading.
    As for the guys, the first episode I thought Kalon was the king of douches. After Monday’s episode, I liked him a lot more. I’m from Texas, and I got an email a few years back that was written exactly like the one RS posted. So I am pretty sure it was the same email. He was a douche then, and I hope he has changed. He is acting like it.

    cubsfan- Here you go..

    You’ll have to create a username and password. Most of the spoilers are under the “Bachelorette 8 Sleuthing – Filming Updates – Spoilers” forum. I usually scroll to the last page and just read the recent stuff. It really doesn’t take long to find the spoilers. Apparently Love_Me is the one that said Jef is the F1 and she (he?) is also the one who first reported that Brad chose Emily instead of Chantal and that Ali chose Roberto and not no one.

    Good one @bark, except I think Steve has been able to discredit himself all by himself. We’re just along for the ride now, and patiently waiting for the ep-by-eps.

    @liz123 – I couldn’t agree with you more about Steve’s immature humour (if that’s what you want to call it). Truthfully, I think Steve has the spoilers, every one of them including F1, but is totally getting off on making us wait it out. Again, his immature humour is showing, and it’s not very attractive.

    @caligirl- Thanks so much! I know where I will be spending most of my time at work now.

    There are some really good blogs that are not only funny, but the bloggers are decent individuals who treat their readers with appreciation. There are some really good ones written by ex-contestants such as Ashley Spivey (she is absolutely adorable), Stag, Trista and quite a few more. They are so much better than the drivel RS has come up with lately. They may not be first with the spoilers, but lately, many of the sites have the same info within minutes.
