Back with another live video blog tonight (9:00PM EST/6:00PM PST), and I can promise you, it won’t be two hours again. Seems like once every ten episodes I’ll go crazy and go for 90 or 120 minutes. Not tonight though. Last week was enough. And the questions got ridiculous anyway when I didn’t have anyone screening them after about an hour and 15 minutes into the show. There are certain times when I have no problem just answering anything asked of me, but those are few and far between. Back to a “normal” show tonight – talking “Bachelorette,” feeding Maddie a frosty paw, and inevitably someone asking “Screw, Marry, Kill – Michelle Money, Emily O’Brien, or Julianne Hough?” That would be impossible to answer by the way.
Just like Sean and Arie the previous two weeks, the ABC conference call today will have Jef on it. Wonderful. Now I can get a bunch of “What do you think he means by this answer and that answer?” questions sent to me. Here’s the thing: It’s really kinda pointless to dissect what’s been happening since these guys returned from filming. Why? Because you’ll never get any definitive answer. All I care about is what happened on the night of May 10th when they filmed the final rose ceremony. Because what was filmed back then can’t be changed. All this stuff that’s happened since is just speculation. Does it make good gossip? I guess. But none of it can ever be proven 100%. This guy said this thing so it must mean this. Or that guy wrote this on Twitter so that must mean this. You’ll drive yourself crazy trying to figure it out because you’re never going to get an answer that will satisfy you. All three guys – Jef, Sean, and Arie – have done stuff since the show that might make someone think they’re the guy Emily chose. They’ve also all done stuff that make you think they weren’t chosen. And since we know Emily isn’t engaged to three guys, it seems silly to dissect everything they do. The only thing any of the three have done post show publicly that is worth noting is the picture Jef posted on Instagram from Barbados just days after the rose ceremony took place. But still, it might mean something, it might mean nothing. All speculation at this point. Unless he publicly comes out and states when, where, and why that picture was posted (which he’s never gonna do), you’re never gonna get an answer.
The Twitter thing is outta control. They’ve never let the final three tweet as much and be so public about their lives ever on this show, so there’s no explanation for it. Not to mention, have you noticed all three guys now are selling #Team shirts? Huh? Arie just joined the clan yesterday by launching this site where you can buy shirts and all the proceeds help kids with drug and alcohol addiction. Great cause and all, but what’s the point of all this happening with the shirts? Once again, something they’ve never allowed in the history of the show before, especially with the show still airing. By the way, for any of you who honestly think that the blonde in the pictures modeling the #TeamArie shirt is actually Emily, you seriously need your head examined.
Did you see the interview Ryan Bowers did with a local Georgia station that ran yesterday? You didn’t, click on this link. What’s interesting is that this interviewer did a very good job of not just asking the generic, “So what did you think of the editing” question, and actually asked specifically what the hell Ryan was referring to when he said certain things. And twice, he didn’t even answer the question. Ha ha. So bizarre. Unless of course, that answer was edited too. Do these two questions sound like he answered them? Sure didn’t to me:
Jillian; “Ok, and then this comment made lots of people upset, you said, ‘When this whole thing is done [and] I’m involved with the media back home, I’m going to say ‘Let’s do The Bachelor: Ryan,’ Did you do this show to be the Bachelor or were you looking for love?
Ryan: “I saw this very sweet, very kind, very beautiful southern girl (Emily) who would really talk about her faith and stuff, I was very interested in going to see her and meet her..that was my 100%…and when I left, the only thing that really bothered me was that maybe she didn’t understand that.”
Jillian: “But, this comment makes it seem like you were interested in being The Bachelor or The Bachelor of Augusta?
Ryan: “I was told by them (abc producers) ‘Look if this thing doesn’t work out for you, which we think it will’ which I was more interested in… ‘I don’t want to be The Bachelor you guys, I would love for this thing to work out, what an awesome story.”
Huh? Was Ryan high during this interview? Why didn’t he answer the question that was asked of him? I guess that’s Planet Ryan for you.
