Reader Emails

“Reader Emails,” the Emily/Chris Harrison Nonsense & Sean Lowe is the Humanitarian of the Year

Quite a few “Reader Emails” to get to this week. Some good “negative” ones too. Good in the fact that it’s always fun once in a while to address the haters. I’d say maybe 5% of the personal emails I get are of the negative variety. So when I get them, I kinda get excited. It’s fun to toy with people like that because they’re so completely irrational, and nothing I say is gonna change their mind anyway, so I just play into it, have fun, then watch them email me something even nastier back. Quite enjoyable. Or sometimes I just delete them. Depends on if I feel like dealing with them or not.

Hi Steve,

Hope all is well. Long time reader-first time e-mailer. Thanks for the laughs. Here are a few thoughts/questions…

1- I thought one of the issues Emily had with Brad, is that he was expecting her to pack up and move to Austin, TX. Emily, kept refusing and fighting him on that and obviously had no real intention of ever leaving Charolette, NC. I am getting that impression from her again this season. She advertised Rikki’s soccer team, her friends, house and mom being her whole life, so I was assuming she is going to expect whoever she chooses to move to NC with her, b/c I highly doubt she is going to leave.

2- I don’t see why everyone has a hard time seeing her with Jef(f). He reminds me a lot of Ricky Hendrick. Kind of goofy, skinny, has his own style, similar hairstyles and obviously she thought Ricky was cool. So she may see some of those same qualities in Jef. As she keeps exclaiming he is “so cool.” At this point with this show anything is possible, and obviously they don’t show us majority of what is actually filmed. So who knows, maybe they really do have a connection and they just choose not to show it b/c well they suck.

Anyway, have a nice weekend. And Maddie is awesome. Rescues are the absolute best animals in the world.

Comment: 1) “Obviously she had no real intention of leaving Charlotte” is pure speculation. According to her, she can move and will move. It’s all whether or not you believe her.

2) Plenty of people like Jef and plenty of people don’t see it – just like every other contestant in the history of this show. Hell, just like every other PERSON in the history of the world. There’s not a single person universally liked, or hated, by everyone. So when people whine and bitch about why some guy or girl should be liked, it’s stupid. Everyone likes and dislikes people for different reasons. Personally, I don’t get it with Jef. Not saying he’s a bad guy, not saying I hate him, not saying anything of the such. I just don’t get it.

Do you think that the producers are bribing the last three guys with more $ if the show doesn’t get spoiled by the finale? I was thinking maybe they made it into kind of a game for them so that they have reason to not spoil it (besides getting sued). Have a great day!

Comment: Anything’s possible but I have no idea whether they are or not.

Reality Steve, I was quite disheartened when I read that cruel email
from one of your readers, calling you “unprofessional” for taking sips of
water and wasting their time by having Maddie in your video blog.

Wow, what a cold-hearted, Class A Jerkwad. Please know that your readers
LOVE Maddie and I, for one, find her totally adorable. Her facial expressions are
priceless, and I would miss seeing her if she were no longer part of your videos.

And Holy Smokes, how are you supposed to talk to us for 1.5+ hours and not take
a few sips of water? Jeez, what a douche……I’m sure that person spreads happiness
wherever they go……

Please know that your readers, at least the ones with some heart and
at least a 1/2 a brain, enjoy your video blogs just the way they are.

Comment: Thanks. Let them say whatever they want. I don’t care.

Hey Steve,

When Arie bought the hot wine in Prague it got me thinking…how much money do you think (or know) they get to spend on their dates? I’m assuming the producers give them some allotment?

Comment: Yes, they don’t spend their own money. It’s all taken care of by the show.

I disagree with the anti-Jef sentiment. In my circle of girlfriends (educated, urban, artsy), a guy like Jazzy Jef would be the ultimate good catch. His skinny hipster look is infinitely more attractive than a meathead like Sean or a prissy guy like Arie. He’s got a cool career. He’s soft spoken and not arrogant. He has some personality and seems thoughtful and intelligent. For my money, he’s by far the coolest guy on the show, maybe ever.

Comment: Ok, great. Thanks for the input. Plenty of people agree with you, plenty don’t.

Hey Steve,

I haven’t been looking at your site long but I consider myself a big fan.

I’m not sure what you can make of this but what the hell is Jesse Csinksak or however you spell his name’s deal? He constantly complains how awful the show is but it’s all he talks about. Then he has to constantly remind everyone that he “won” in order to promote himself. I don’t know much about the guy but he seems totally obnoxious.

Comment: Just know that his season aired in the summer of 2008 – and he’s still doing everything he can to talk about the show day in and day out. Whether it’s getting paid $.02 for every one of his Sulia tweets that are clicked on and retweeted, or constantly selling stories and quotes to tabloids, etc. It’s pretty apparent what’s going on. Let him be. Just don’t pay attention.

Hi Steve,

So sorry if this is redundant for you and if you’ve been asked a million times but just wondering why you don’t have the ending figured out for this season and have gotten it much easier for previous seasons? I watched your video blog on Thursday and heard you answer this question saying that this finale was much more private etc. and that you’ll give the answer when you have info on exactly what went down that day. So I guess I’m wondering how your previous sources knew exactly what happened at past finales? Were they there? Because it doesn’t seem possible that your sources would be there first-hand, right? And it sounds like you won’t comment on the end until you have the first-hand info. So again, just trying to figure out how you got your info before but can’t get confirmation this time. Also wondering if you have any updates on the final 3 dates and what happens?

Comment: Every season is different. The person who told me Jason’s ending is different from the sources that told me Jake’s ending, who’s different from the sources that told me Ashley’s ending, whose different than the person who told me Ben’s ending. When I get it, I get it, and it comes from many different directions. Just haven’t gotten this season yet. Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. But considering June of 2012 is the biggest month I’ve ever had in the history of my site, I’d say that there’s more that people are coming for than spoilers, which has always been the case.

If people only came for spoilers, then the day I released them would be the biggest day ever, and every other day would pale in comparison. That’s never been the case. The site has been around 9 years and developed it’s following through my recaps of the show. People seem to like what I write. Did the spoilers add more readers? Absolutely. But I still think, well I know, that people still come more for the recaps and what I have to say about the show more than for the spoilers. Spoilers are an added bonus. There’s no other way to explain this month of June. It’s been great. More than I expected.

    @deb… true that! but it doesnt mean liz doesnt enjoy coming to this site for other reasons.. if u think about it like this, it makes more sense.. steve writes a blog about a show he cant stand! and he invests a whole lot of time into doing it, too.. and commenting on it..

    we could say the same for steve.. why invest so much time and write about a show that he cant stand and just talks crap about all the time? if he doesnt like it, then why watch it or write about it? there are other spoilers out there.. why not start a site that is geared towards a show or something he really enjoys.. he’s flat out admitted that it’s bc he enjoys trashing the show.. he could make money doing something else…

    what’s the difference? just bc he gets paid some money? liz has a full time job that isnt centered around something she hates, while raising 2 little ones and comes to this site and comments on it.. just like steve comments on a show that he hates.. i dont see much of a difference…it’s just freedom of speech, and it’s not like she’s insulting any of us on here or anything… she’s actually quite sweet..

    So Steve doesn’t read these comments – alrighty then.

    If Steve doesn’t spoil the winner, of course people will keep hitting his blog to see if he has it yet. Once the winner is revealed, no reason to come back here. So is Steve intentionally holding back on us to get more hits which means more advertisements which means his blog makes more money ???

    I find it so hard to believe that Steve never reads these comments. I know if I ran a site like this I would check up on the comments when it seemed to be a large number. But yet again, I’m just an extremely curious individual!

    Steve cannot spoil the winner because he don’t know and his sources are gone in my opinion. He always gets so angry when i say that, yet week after week he can’t prove that he has any left. If he does finally give out the winner it better be detailed or he will just be guessing, remember steve you have 33 percent chance. Well 50 percent really as you and everyone else says Arie is F3

    Caromondy…are you really going to drop something like “Arie is F2” and just leave us hanging??!! No fair!

    Kasey…I just read your remark about Debora’s obsession with Liz’s head and had to tell you I had a good laugh over that one.

    Debora…let go and have some fun!!!! Liz’s head is just fine. And so is Kasey’s sense of humor!

    Is anyone else experiencing a high amount of spam since that cackle stuff started? I’m talking about hundreds daily.

    I think I’m starting to lean towards she doesn’t chose anyone, dates Jef for a while, then it fizzles type of ending. I just don’t think it’s going to be as simple as one of the men getting down on his knee to propose, and Emily saying yes.

    Sorry if this has been answered before recently, but what does ITM stand for?

  8. Sunnyside422

    July 2, 2012 at 10:10 AM

    ITM stands for In The Moment…those interviews with the contestants during the show are taped at different times (notice Emily’s deep tan which she obtained in Curacao (sp) and certainly not in the previous stops) when producers ask questions and make suggestions to the various men and Emily. Scripting at its finest.

    @karynr- lol, right? how weird was it that deb kept asking about liz’s head?? and the possiblity of it exploding? she must have asked a good 3 or 4 times, when clearly liz was responding back that she was fine.. hahaha.. i just thought it was hilarious.. glad u picked up on my, sometimes overlooked, sense of humor 😉
