What do you think of how fans jump on the bandwagon of products or businesses of the shows contestants? On jokersupdates.com, the fans are going crazy trying to get People Water. They want t-shirts and other merchandise. When Chris was on with Ali, they all ordered the t-shirts of his business. Back during Brad’s first season people went to Austin for vacations trying to see him. I know someone who switched insurance companies to get Roberto as an agent. Don’t you think it’s a little ridiculous?
Also, have you seen all the photos of Jef (the former Jeff) and Emily in Africa? Do you think she’s really enjoying herself? Do you think they will burn out like some of the other contestant couples in the past. I don’t see Emily as being that charitable and being willing to give so much time and effort to others and I think the bloom will be off the rose sooner rather than later. She’s even trying to pull off hipster looks and it’s not working and I don’t see her being happy with it all for too long.
Comment: Yes, most fans of this show are ridiculous, maniacal, and borderline obsessive when it comes to certain things. I don’t get it.
Yes, I’ve seen the Jef and Emily photos from Africa. They’re still in the honeymoon phase of their relationship, so anything they’re tweeting about each other is what I expect. I remember DeAnna and Jesse started their own website talking about their life, where they were, and wrote almost every day about how much they loved each other blah blah blah and they broke up in 5 months. As I’ve said many times before, the more people tell me on their Twitter or FB how in love they are with their bf, the less I believe them. It’s like they are trying to validate it to the rest of us. Live your life, do your thing, but I don’t see what constantly telling people about it will do, because inevitably when you break up, you’ll look back and realize how dumb that was.
While I was watching this week’s pool party, I wondered… Is music allowed on the Bachelor Pad? It would be boring to party without music but then how would producers hear everything contestants were saying?
Comment: I don’t think there is. Just alcohol and a pool. Seems to be all these people need to have a good time.
This might be an obvious answer question, but since it’s the off-season I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask. You stated last week that Ben and Courtney were not invited to Emily’s ATFR, Chris Harrison has made some snarky remarks about them, and it appears that the general consensus between America and ABC is that everybody dislikes them. That being said, say those two crazy kids do make it to the altar, would ABC still pay for and broadcast it? They just seem like the black sheep season and ABC is happy to forget about them altogether. Your thoughts?
Comment: I doubt ABC would broadcast their wedding for the sole reason you mentioned above – they are the most well-liked couple in the public’s eye. And I definitely think it was pretty telling they weren’t even invited to the ATFR since they are the show’s most recent couple and they are still together. They’ve done it for everyone else, why not them?
I am guessing you have received a lot of emails about this latest story, and I am guessing it’s completely untrue, but what do you think/know about the stories that Emily slept with either “Jef”, Arie, or both; that Emily actually had her final date with Arie; that Arie wanted to meet Ricki and Emily wouldn’t let him (because “Jef” told her not to?); Arie found out that she slept with both of them; and Arie then broke up with her. As a result, production forced Arie to agree to film the breakup that aired.
What I found really amusing were the tabloids that reported that Arie was disgusted that she slept with both guys and was all, how could she? Knowing what we know about his past dalliances, it would be more than a little hypocritical.
Thanks and sorry if you received this question a million times in the last week!!
Comment: Here’s the thing about those tabloids stories: Unless Arie, Emily, or Jef comes out and confirms it, it can never be proven. It’s just a way for them to sell magazines. Notice none of the quotes came from anyone on record who attached their name to it. Just a bunch of speculation to drive sales, which is pretty much what they do every week outside of an exclusive once every six months or so.
If Emily did sleep with Arie before Jef, how would anyone know outside of them and maybe a couple others? And how can it be proven? It can’t, which is why they run with it. Unless they have pictures of it, all it takes for them is to contact a former cast member (and trust me, if you don’t think former cast members from this show are making money by feeding tabloids information as the “insider,” or “friends close to the situation,” or “sources,” then you are sorely mistaken), get them to give a quote off record, and they’re golden. I guarantee most of these quotes are coming from people from the show who hear a rumor and immediately run with it because they know they can get paid. Plenty of these former contestants are on the tabloids speed dial. Plenty.
