Thanks for all you do. I enjoy reading your updates each week
My question is when they are standing there with the rose in their hand, is the name of the person on the rose someplace? I always see them twisting the rose around looking at it. I know it would work for me since I am horrible with names 🙂
Thanks for your time and keep up the great work
Comment: Sweeeeeeeeeeeeet. Twice in one mailbag. Slowly but surely, this one is creeping up on “Why is the driveway always wet” for Most Nauseating Repetitive Question Ever.
Just wanted to tell you that I don’t think the Crackle ads have anything to do with your website necessarily. I have seen them on other websites, and my husband (who has never been on your site & has never looked at anything to do with The Bachelor shows) has had them pop up on his computer. His computer has no connection with mine. I am not very computer smart either, but it doesn’t seem like it is your problem.
Since this is the first time I have ever emailed you and have never commented on your site, just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading your recaps & spoilers. And I support your right to free speech. I am so glad your lawsuit was settled and I definitely consider that a win for you & the rest of us.
Comment: Thanks. We’re pretty clueless as to where it’s coming from and how to stop it, but good to know it’s showing up on other sites too.
I am sure you read Mike Fleiss’ tweets. One of them in particular essentially told you to shoot yourself. I was HORRIFIED. I have been an active member of the AFSP (The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention). This is absolutely sickening. It goes WAY beyond whatever beef you two have with each other. Teenagers follow him. He is a powerful man and he is promoting suicide on a social networking site. I am shocked. I happen to be a fan of yours which is why I came pon these tweets. I am sure nothing will be done, but I am not shutting up about this. What an evil son of a bitch.
Comment: I agree. That tweet was completely uncalled for. His tweets speak for themselves. Let him do what he’s doing and I’ll continue to do what I do.
I was wondering..is it possible that they offered the Bachelor to Sean but he passed on it?( Kind of like Emily did initially) and then went to Roberto? I understand why they went with Roberto-him already having a “fan base” type of thing..it just seems that Sean also has a big following and is well liked by a lot of the people that watch the show as well, plus he is “fresher” in the audiences mind. Either way I agree he will be fine (with dates after this) he seems like a good guy. I have to say Emily choosing Jef reminds me of when Deanna chose Jesse..a bit of a head scratcher ..I do not get what she sees in him..I also think it is hilarious that Emily thinks he is “edgy” lol!!! Ummm no honey..just..no. I guess in the morning Emily can fix both Ricki’s hair and Jef’s..only I imagine Jef’s taking longer..good choice Emily..this will totally work out lol
Comment: No. Sean is not going to be the Bachelor nor did he ever pass on it. Roberto was offered this gig months ago before Sean started to develop a huge fan base with this show that culminated with his exit this week. Sure, the sentiment right now is there for Sean because of the way he handled himself and how well liked he is, but I guess it’s a case of too little, too late. Don’t know when the announcement is officially coming, but it’s Roberto.
I wanted to say that you handled the Fleiss situation remarkably well! I enjoyed your tweets back to him from Saturday, but I appreciate that you took the high road, good for you!
My question is this: how mucjh supervision does the lead have while the show is airing? Obviously they’re escorted to talk show appearances, but if Emily wanted to fly to Texas and help you spoil the ending for you, would they be watching her closely enough to stop her?
Comment: I don’t even consider what happened Saturday a “twitter war” as people were describing it. It was an exchange in my eyes. Twitter “wars” are personal, mean, vicious attacks against someone. I never did that and neither did he. I just had fun with some of the stuff he was saying about spoilers in general. He made it personal on Monday for God knows what reason. No idea what prompted it, no idea what he was talking about, and it was pointless to engage in it. I did not violate any terms of the agreement whatsoever.
Once Emily is done with filming and goes home, she does what she wants on her own. She still talks to producers all the time, etc but her day to day life just continues on as normal.
I checked Mike Fleiss’ twitter feed just to see the comments that you referenced, and the man tweets like a middle-schooler. Way too many smiley faces, hehehe’s and exclamation points.
Anyway, he made the comment “Have u ever heard someone say “I taped the game. Don’t tell me who won.” ???” So are you telling me that if you accidentally hear the results on the radio or see them on a website, that it’s the News’s fault for spoiling the game? Should I sue the obnoxious girl who talks way too loud to her friends for ruining the ending of a movie I haven’t seen yet? My point is that even though The Bachelor/ette hasn’t aired to the general public, the events already happened and someone is bound to let the results slip. I could be wrong, but my guess is that the people who know what happens on this show would still tell somebody even if Reality Steve didn’t exist. It just so happens that you’ve built up a reputation where people find your spoilers credible, as opposed to a blog that posts ” I just heard from a credible source that Emily picks Jef! My source is 100% certain!!” I feel like you’re the gun in the “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” analogy. Weird comparison, I know.
Keep up the good work. I am not even watching this season so I rely completely on your commentary. I watched the 2nd episode and found it so boring I never went back.
Comment: The Super Bowl reference he made on Twitter made no sense whatsoever. That’s apples and oranges. His tweets spoke for themselves.
In this day and age, with Twitter being a 24/7 live news feed, anyone can say anything with no repercussions. When it comes to this show, people know where to come to get their spoilers and that’s not changing anytime soon. Let other people say what they want, let other sites do what they do, but in the end, the fact of the matter is I know I get more accurate information about this show than any other site out there. If that bothers people, so be it. It’s the truth.
So I figured that I’d give you a hand, and explain something to folks, because I’ve seen people say that you were incorrect about the final two.
To my knowledge, you never said that Sean would be gone at three, and then Arie two.
What you DID say, was that you knew Jef was her chosen one, and that it was not Arie for sure, and BECAUSE Jef is final one, Sean obviously would not be. You said that, but you didn’t give a breakdown on how they would be eliminated (until posting the night before that Sean would go first).
Which I am assuming people took to mean that since it wasn’t Arie for sure, he’d be the one gone at three, leaving Sean and Jef. It’s a simple mistake for viewers to have made.
Nonetheless, you did not give incorrect spoilers, since (unless your info was incorrect), Jef is the chosen one, and it therefore is not Arie.
It’s not that hard to figure out. People just have to take your words exactly as they are; saying that Jef is the final one, and Arie definitely is not with her, does not state the elimination order.
Comment: Yeah, that came up in email a few times this week and I was confused as to what people were saying. For two months, in basically every column, I told people I don’t know anything past Arie, Jef, and Sean were your final three. I must’ve said that close to 20 times. I did say a couple weeks ago that I knew Arie didn’t win, but, I never said I knew when he went home, because I didn’t. But based on what I said, I guess people just assumed I meant he went home at final three, even though I never said that. I just said he didn’t win, but I didn’t know how it played out. Guess that’s what happens when you “assume” things.
First thing I said about the final three was I knew Arie didn’t win. Then last Tuesday, I told you she is engaged to Jef. It wasn’t til Sunday night when I posted that I knew 100% Sean went home this week. So that’s what probably confused people was that the information I learned came in “out of order” so to speak. Not one time in the last three months did I ever write in my column that Arie was eliminated at final three, because I didn’t know who was until this past Sunday night.
