Reality Steve


Reality Steve Live Video Blog – Thursday, June 14th 9:00PM EST/6:00PM PST

Here’s last night’s video blog. Biggest viewership we’ve ever had, I went for 2 hours, and answered 225 questions – some good, some not so good, and some downright stupid. The first 25 minutes I talk about who I think Emily chose, info on the Cassie/Arie situation, plus Bach Pad 3 thoughts and US Weekly already backtracking on their Roberto report. If you’re trying to view this video on your Ipad or Iphone, it won’t work. However, if you go to this link, you can download an app which will allow you to. Thanks everyone who joined in and watched last night, or participated by asking a question. Enjoy…

    You know what, after reading through some of these comments & my own comments, I’m ashamed to say it really does appear that we have NO LIVES! I really do have a life, ya’ll! I swear it. I have a husband of 10 yrs, 2 little girls, a good job, a house, a car, lots of real life friends. HaHaHa!!! I just get so bored and/or tired of thinking about brain numbing data (I’m a scientist) that this is my guilty, mindless escape. I try to realize that we’re all probably that way- not just some fat old man sitting behind a computer in his bathrobe eating Cheetos all day. So, cyberfriends, this is to say: I’m real & actually do have a life & other interests regardless of the fact that it seems like I must spend all my time obsessing over who Emily freakin’ Maynard chooses on the Bachelorette! LOL!

    @aatex or cammie: one more thing before I get back to work, I found you on FB through the link you gave me, aatex, but you don’t have the option to be “friended” by a stranger. I couldn’t find cammie through you b/c I can’t see your friend’s list. Either of you email me at & I’ll send you a link to my FB. I don’t wanna put my real name here!

    I will admit that when I saw Jef arrive on the skate board, my thought was “ah ah…another kid to join the rest in the playpen”, but I have totally reversed my opinion.

    His soft spoke, genuine, sweet conversation (and the fact he can string 2 sentences together which Brad just couldn’t) have me in his corner. If he is a total fake and phoney, I’ll be disappointed.

    I believe that it is alway best for the man to adore the woman more and I think he will reach that stage with Ems. Believe she needs someone who will adore her and keep her on the pedestal she currently resides on. I think he can do waaay better than Ems.

    I don’t have any faith in any of these proposals so not holding my breath that if indeed it is Jef, they really marry.

    Sean seems like a decent guy too. She definitely has the hots for Arie but she said she felt something for Jef from the first night. Could be ;producers told her to say that. We shall see if Steve can confirm F1. Like it when I know stuff in advance.

    Anyone thought about the possibility that maybe ABC is letting them tweet and if Jef is being so obvious that perhaps its there way of hitting Steve in the pocket book since his job is spoiling the bachlorette and its what he makes his living off of? LOL

    Wow, wow, wow….. I just don’t get the number of people who sit and constantly complain about Steve and the vlog yet they dedicate 2 hours of their night to watching and commenting and posting. Really??? And now the haters are even posting pics of Steve’s family on their personal websites, ha ha there are no words!! Can you say crazy stalker status! Pretty creepy.

    As far as the final 3 go, I have never heard anyone in my life say the word “like” more than Jef and it becomes so annoying and such a distraction that I can’t even pay attention to what it is he is trying to say.

    I think Sean is the best match for her, but that is for her to decide and not me. I still like Arie even after all the dirt.

    1. Expensive red t-shirt, bought at Norstroms. He’s doing ok.

    2. I think it’s funny how excited RS was with the number of viewers but I have to wonder how many of those were just there for the chat…that chat was hopping!

  8. randais

    June 15, 2012 at 5:23 PM

    I don’t think RS realizes what a game this whole vblog/chat thing has become. It’s clearly fun at his expense: who can ask the stupidest question, the most questions, the funniest question, most offensive question. Maybe he’ll figure it out by next week.

    Has anyone else seen Jake Palvelka on the Bold and the Beautiful playing …of all things….. an off and on again pilot?

    Good Grief Steve – I’ve groused at you before for the unbelievable slags you make about other countries. And yes, freedom of speech is for everyone…even the slanted and sophomoric.

    But then you say: “And I don’t care if you feel the same way about the USA. Doesn’t affect my life in any way, shape, or form.”

    You need to wake up. Here’s a story. I knew a group of guys, just like you appear Steve––they like the girls, like the bar, get into sports, have fun hanging. Not brawlers, just salt of the earth, bball GUYS. And they were on a trip in London a few years back and leaving a bar after a few drinks, were jumped by other patrons. Just a local bar, not a dive, no trash talking btw groups––they were simply JUMPED because they were American. And it wasn’t just a few guys that might have looked like easy pickings, they were a group of 8. All needed medical attention, one w/ a broken arm.

    So you just keep spouting off about how “it doesn’t affect you, it never will”. I’ll bet you don’t have a single friend in the military. They don’t need you mouthing off and making it harder for them to win-allies. I’m as patriotic as the next but you just don’t know the damage commentary like that causes.

    You don’t necessarily owe someone an apology for making a bad joke. But you certainly lack self-awareness.

    Didn’t you see the story online yesterday? Travel apparently makes a person sexy. So get on a freakin’ plane and learn how to say hello in another language already!!! 😉

    @anyone who thanked me for me brief synopsis earlier, youre welcome 🙂

    what liz said is funny, it does seem that we have no lives lol.. but of course we all do.. my reason for coming here is different in the sense that all i do alllll day long is talk, talk, talk, listen, listen, listen (i do hair so im a therapist, friend, psychic *bc my clients seem to think i always know whats going to happen in their lives.. “when do u think he’ll ask me to marry him?” was my favorite today*, magician) im always exhausted when i get home, so its nice to be low key behind a computer sometimes where i dont have to physically speak..

    also, i agree… most of my friends, family, clients, co workers who watch the show too do not want to know what happens.. one girl i work with also wont talk about the show with me bc shes affraid she’ll be able to figure out who is in the finale by reading my facial expression when she talks about a certain guy.. right now, she swears doug wins lol..

    @liz, I sent you an email with a link to my FB page. 🙂

    Like you said, I am also pretty normal. I’m in my thirties, divorced, no kids (except 4 monster sized dogs), boyfriend, great career (I work in accounting), house, car, all the same stuff as you. I visit this site for 2 reasons: 1) I like the show and talking about the show. 2) Shits and giggles – these comments are just funny.

    @jgunn, puh-leeze, the “haters” have been very tame in the comments section here. But 5 points to you for trying to get the hater ball rolling again. Keep trying!

    @randais, you are spot-on with your post about the chat. It has become kind of a “game” and many people do convene there for the opportunity to live chat.

    In my opinion (if anyone cares), ABC knows exactly what they are doing. I believe Jef is the F1 and that ABC is letting him do whatever he wants. I think their ultimate goal, besides making a drama filled reality TV show, is to have the couples stay together. I think they want every couple to stay together to make the process and the show more legitimate. They have seen in the past that having the lead and winner basically in hiding did not equal having a successful relationship. I think the told Jef and Emily they can do whatever they want on social media except say out loud who won. But again, this is my opinion.

    I also think that they wanted Arie to be the next bachelor, but once the whole discrimination lawsuit came about, they needed to rethink who the next lead would be. It just happened that Roberto became single, so they thought “let’s choose him!” I mean, don’t you think it is a little coincidental that they get filed with a lawsuit about not having enough diversity on the show, and the next lead they chose is Latino? It all smells a little fishy to me.

    But again, all of this is my OPINION. I don’t want to be tarred and feathered on this board due to what my own opinion is…….

  13. kasey31

    June 16, 2012 at 8:10 AM

    @cubsfan2875, of course u wont be tarred and feathered on here for stating your opinion! ive only seen that happen when someone makes a comment that insults someone, everyone is entitled to make opinions.. thats what the mesg board is for 😉

    could be true about abc? idk what theyre doing this season.. it’s obvious that either they dont care, or they are trying to throw everyone off and something really different is going to happen at the finale.. but ya still doesnt explain the toleration of allowing jef to tweet so much about where he is in relation to emily… so maybe they are allowing them to be near each other? i just dont see why they would want everyone to know through social media.. its one thing to allow them to see each other more often (and still try to be secretive), but its another to allow him to tweet it for the world to see in real time.. i just dont think abc cares about the couple’s relationship as much as they care about their viewership.. it seems theyd be risking lower ratings if they started allowing the f1 to tweet about it this early on..

    i agree with what u said about arie.. theyre editing him to be perfect as the next bachelor, but then again, the editting occured before the cassie/arie story came out.. that, mixed with the lawsuit against abc, probably does have a lot to do with why they chose roberto instead of arie, if indeed arie does not win..

    Because of the puritanical Western society we live in, we often mistake being a “good parent” for being a “good person”. I can definitely understand that Doug would be a good parent but I’m sorry, from what we’ve seen of him this season, by all appearances he’s a hot-headed, short-tempered a-hole. Meanwhile, Jef comes off as a sincere, no-frills, low-drama nice guy. Who cares if he doesn’t appear ready to take on the role of being a father? That’s something that doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time, with EVERYONE.

    And for what it’s worth; I can almost guarantee you that the Hendrick gravy train will derail the second little Ricki turns 18. If the Hendrick family is a traditional Southern, old-money family, they probably resent Emily to the nth degree for getting pregnant out of wedlock. Mark my words, those Hendrick checks will stop the day after Ricki’s 18th birthday.

    @Caligirl – I was wondering, Since RS posted his video blog, are the posters over at that Bachlorette Fan Forum still convinced its Jef?

    Because to me, I was pretty much resigned to the Jef F1 theory, but notsomuch now, RS has put some doubt in my mind.

  16. jgunn

    June 16, 2012 at 7:16 PM

    Thank goodness I got 5 points from you Cammie, my life wouldn’t have been complete without it!!!

    I love how you all have to sit here and justify / defend the fact that you actually have a life – “I’m 22 and go to college and I’m in the top of my class, not to mention a sorority girl who all the guys love and adore because lets face it, I’m beautiful! I only watch the Bachelor / Bachelorette because I want to be them and am living vicariously through them! Oh, and ps…. I hate Steve yet I spend every free chance I get checking his blog to see what comments other strangers have posted and now am adding them as Facebook friends because lets face it, that’s the only way I can get friends. Other than that my life is perfect, see see!!!!” Ha ha, you humans are laughable!

  17. aatex

    June 16, 2012 at 8:38 PM

    jgunn = extreme troll, but I do have a question. Ya say ‘you humans’ are laughable… WTF are you then?

    The pictures weren’t really of Steve’s mom and sister, the picture was a joke between a couple of friends that have a sense of humor.

    Bitter much?

  18. kasey31

    June 16, 2012 at 9:44 PM

    @aatex.. i think i would possibly take offense to jgunn if that “non human” wasnt doing the exact same thing it’s accusing everyone else on here of doing.. watching the show and leaving comments.. bitter? maybe.. hypocrite? absolutely

  19. Rach

    June 17, 2012 at 1:22 AM

    This is my first time ever commenting on here. The only thing that caught my attention was Steve saying he wanted the Thunder to win! Well Steve, ME TOO!!!!!! I love them, love KD and hate LeBron. Ya, I’m from Cleveland 🙂 BUT, i did live in OKC when the Thunder first came, so I’m allowed to like them too!

  20. liz123

    June 17, 2012 at 9:59 AM

    @jgunn, I wasn’t trying to convince you that I have a life. I could care less what you think about my life. I was making what I thought was a funny observation- not trying to convince you or anyone else. Obviously, there’s nothing I could say to convince you anyway if that was even my goal, so what would be the point? But I’m not upset with you because I know that everything I said about myself is 100% true. I’m sorry if that upsets you or makes you jealous enough to bother creating a SN and leaving at least 2 comments about it. And I totally agree with kasey31, you are really being a hypocrite. You are watching the show & here commenting just like the rest of us! Can you not see that?

  21. sandy

    June 17, 2012 at 2:38 PM

    @liz123 – Your life is just fine. I wouldn’t be bothered with what anyone else says. 🙂

  22. solo5

    June 17, 2012 at 4:07 PM

    I just want to give a little insight that may shed light on a couple of your questions/complaints(Steve) with regard to Jef Holm. I grew up in the same town as Steve, knew his family, and went on a few dates with him when we were younger (like 9 years younger). I haven’t seen him in a few years, so I don’t claim in the least to know him inside and out. However, when it comes to the culture around here (in Utah), even in our largest city, the social network is like that of a small town. Everyone knows everyone, especially the entrepreneurs. More new businesses come out of Utah than almost anywhere else, and it’s because of a ton of young, flashy, ambitious young people attending all of the universities in these parts. It doesn’t surprise me at all that Michelle Money’s brother happens to “know” Jef… Jef owns a business that has caught the attention of all of the twenty-somethings in the area. Michelle knows everyone. All of the “beautiful people” of SLC have all been to parties together and networked at business functions. So I don’t necessarily think there had to be any kind of conspiracy going on just because Doug was talking to Jef. Everyone knows everyone around here.
    Also, as far as other comments you made regarding what Jef said to Emily on their 1-on-1, mainly in the “Egg”- he is genuinely a kind hearted, gentle guy, and he grew up in a very very conservative environment. Even though he doesn’t consider himself an active member of the Mormon church, our culture for members of the church and otherwise is very traditional, and women are treated with a ton of respect. So the stuff he was saying, although trite and cheesy, was pretty legit. Family is king out here, and although Jef is relatively young, almost every one of his friends is married with children. At 27 years old myself, it is the norm to have most of my friends be mothers of 2. Regardless of his religious affiliation, it is deeply embedded in our area that starting a family at our age is something to be looked forward to and sought after. He has a close relationship with his family, and I’m sure they are eager for him to “settle down”, as 28 and single in these parts is bordering on scary. So, I honestly think a guy like Jef is more “prepared” to be a father than most of the other guys there. His surroundings allow for it, and it wouldn’t be a huge leap lifestyle-wise since he already has a ton of friends doing the whole kid thing. Also, his clothes, as much as you hate them, are all the rage here and in other areas of the west. It’s indie-hipster, and even though I’m not into it, it’s not like he’s way off in “I make my own rules”-land. Walk around Salt Lake City on an afternoon and you’ll see plenty of corporate guys dressed like that. Think what you will about Utah and Mormons, but I just wanted you to be able to understand why Jef is the way he is, why he’s different from the rest of the guys, and why it’s not an act- it’s very on par with men in this area.

    Clarification? You grew up in the same town as Steve?

  24. Athena

    June 17, 2012 at 10:17 PM

    @raindais on – 99% sure she meant “Jef” not Steve. She’s talking about both she and Jef growing up in SLC. My brother, who is decidedly NOT a Mormon has lived there for many years too, and he would support most everything solo5 has said, albeit with a few comments about various kinds of exclusion (to put it mildly) non-Mormons sometimes experience there.

    On a separate note, one thing I thought was interesting in Jef’s and Emily’s 1on1 date was when she asked him about how things would be if she “were living in SLC with him”…I thought it was interesting that she was broaching the idea of living somewhere other than Charlotte rather than the guy having to move where she is. Has she said anything like this before to any of the other guys?

  25. randais

    June 18, 2012 at 3:58 AM

    I thought that might be the case but I wanted to make sure I wasn’t just misreading her statement.

  26. katieny1974

    June 18, 2012 at 6:38 AM

    I don’t understand why the media has made such a big deal about the Arie/Cassie thing. Aren’t we talking about a relationship that happened nearly a decade ago? I still think Arie has a good chance of being the F1. I hope he is. I think he and Emily would make such a sweet couple. 😉

    June 18, 2012 at 6:41 AM

    If you all hate this blog, steve, what he wears, what he drinks, and every single thing about him. Why do you spends hours of your life commenting on his board? It just doesn’t compute. People who bash others are typically unhappy with themselves. If a online blog about a reality show has you this worked up, I feel sorry for you. I don’t know about you but I have more important things to do. Its almost like some of you get off on being as mean as you can… I picture fat, ugly housewives sitting at their computers while eating thier snacks… I would be angry if I were you too… the computer must be your best friend… Oh I get it now… no need to explain it to me ladies… your words and actions make it very obvious…. carry on… I await your responses… ” I am not fat and a loser… you are!” ….. have at it. I will try to check later on when I have some time… busy girl… busy day… got a life… maybe you should all try too! G’day mates!

  28. JovisMom

    June 18, 2012 at 6:58 AM

    @ brady6 – LOL!!! Love it!

    Everyone else, I was listening to 106.1 in Dallas this morning and Reality Steve was on. One of the DJ on the station saw Sean at a bar and he of course didn’t give anything away to her but on his on stated that Reality Steve has a pretty big detail wrong… He is suppose to post more today, but also said that when Emily came out saying “who else isn’t her all for me” or whatever it was, was just editing… She went out to get another rose, so ALL the men at the rose cermony get one tonight…. Travis and Ryan go home on their 1 on 1….

  29. bigfatwoman

    June 18, 2012 at 7:42 AM


    People come on here for the spoilers…..which used to be fun and light-hearted….but recently the tone has changed when Steve started asking for money and then not being forthright with the total picture of his legal issues.

    Then….bashing Steve became sport for some. Why? Because Steve pretty much dug himself a hole by not being honest or self-deprecating at any turn.

    Now, reading the comments has become more entertaining than Steve’s blog.

    I think you’ve got it wrong. No one is walking away from their computer feeling any hatred. You need to chill out and stop making assumptions.

  30. CaliGirl

    June 18, 2012 at 8:30 AM

    @brady6, I’m one of the more frequent commenters on here and for what it’s worth, it really doesn’t take very long to browse through the comments and add my own. It may look like we spend hours a day on here but I can assure you that isn’t the case. Sometimes if there’s an interesting discussion going on, I’ll keep this window minimized while I work and check back periodically and refresh the page to see what comments have been added. No big deal. 🙂 Definitely doesn’t rule my day or my time.

    @Jovi, that is interesting!! Wouldn’t surprise me at all if the “who else here is not all about me” comment was edited in. Looking forward to watching it tonight.

  31. CaliGirl

    June 18, 2012 at 8:39 AM

    One more thought, @brady- I completely agree with you that people that constantly bash others are typically unhappy with themselves. Look at Steve, for example. How much time does he spend in his blog bashing people? Does anyone think he is truly happy with himself as a person? Doesn’t mean I don’t love his blog though and the comedy he (usually) provides.

  32. carol1975

    June 18, 2012 at 9:13 AM

    Does anybody know if the Gina Carbone that writes all the articles about the bachelor/ette on is related to Steve? Or IS Steve?

  33. cammie99

    June 18, 2012 at 10:21 AM

    @Carol, good question! I googled that and found this link: Look about midway down the page.

  34. karynr

    June 18, 2012 at 11:24 AM

    jgunn…you comments come across as those of an unhappy, angry, bitter individual.

    Take a chill pill, move away from your computer and go have some fun!

    If some of us choose to jump on here a few times a day, we don’t need someone telling us we don’t have a life. You’re making some major judgements and assumptions about people. I’m lucky enough to telecommute and have the freedom to give myself a break and read some entertainment-type stuff occasionally.

    Yoga or any type of work-out is great for getting rid of some of that anger :). Just saying…..lighten up and find a healthy outlet for that anger.

  35. aatex

    June 18, 2012 at 11:52 AM

    @brady6 your comment doesn’t even deserve attention. It has nutcase all rolled into one paragraph.

    Can’t wait for the show tonight – finally getting down to the wire.

  36. jgunn

    June 18, 2012 at 2:42 PM

    Sorry for anyone I offended. My comment did come off as a little bitter and that wasn’t my intention. I guess I just get sick of seeing the same people always bashing this blog and Steve yet continue to come here. Just a tough concept for me to grasp. I didn’t mean to be a rash and bitchy as I came off, must have been on one. So my apologies.

  37. karynr

    June 18, 2012 at 2:43 PM

    Athena..I forgot about her question to Jeff about relocation until I just reread your comment. While I was watching, I realized that was the first time she brought up moving with any of the men.

  38. blyth5050

    June 18, 2012 at 5:41 PM

    had to log in to say many thanks for the updates and spoilers and you’re a good sport.

  39. kasey31

    June 18, 2012 at 6:38 PM

    @jgunn.. thanks for the apology, but i think u really did hurt some people’s feelings on here.. u know, yes there are some rs “haters,” but theyre actually very sweet people that only come to this site as a distraction from the hussle of their everyday lives.. rarely do they ever say anything mean or try to hurt other people.. they dont always agree with steve, but thats ok.. we are all allowed to express our opinions on here.. ive seen the “haters” praise steve, as well, so its not always negative..

    i think we have to remember that there are actual people behind the computer screen (new moms, business women, single hard-working moms, stressed out college students), and this is a nice escape for them.. so insulting people for doing something so harmless such as watching a silly show and commenting on a spoiler site isnt the nicest thing to do..

    that being said, i am always humbled when someone is able to admit they made a mistake and acted like a jerk bc we’ve all done it, i know i have 😉

  40. carol1975

    June 19, 2012 at 4:58 AM

    Thanks for the link Cammie! Had been wandering if there was something there because there seems to be a connection between Steve and Wetpaint.

  41. karynr

    June 19, 2012 at 9:21 AM

    jgunn…thanks for the apology. I hope I didn’t come across as too abrasive, however, after years of loyalty, I am so deeply disappointed in the content and tone of the blog. I keep coming back because I continue to have hope, love the spoilers, even though they are far and few between lately, and thoroughly enjoy the rational and logical back and forth with the comments section. There are some really intelligent, eloquent individuals whose comments are delightful to read.

    Kasey put it well when she called it a “nice escape.” As someone who has gone through being a caregiver for a terminally ill parent the past few years (lost my mom a year ago April), my own battle with breast cancer and a mastectomy and having my son temporarily disabled in two car accidents, I use every escape possible to add some lightness to my life.

    I didn’t mean to spill so much, but just wanted to give a realistic picture of what a great, harmless escape this SHOULD be.

    Each of us feels a certain way about RS. Let people say their piece and shrug it off. I, personally, have always enjoyed his blog (until the past year), but won’t put up with nasty, rude reply emails. He had a really loyal reader in me until I personally experienced his venomous personality.

    Sorry….didn’t mean to go on and on.
