Here are your “Reader Emails” for the week. Not many, but enjoy what you can.
Hey! Why do you think Neil lane stil comes onto the show to give the rings? Is someone watching and thinking oh that’s so pretty let me spend god knows how much on a diamond Ring now? Personally I think his rings are bad luck. The poor dude gets his time wasted every season. Unless abc buys the rings from him and keeps them in a safe when they break up? That’s a lotta diamond rings stuffing up a safe. Thoughts?
Comment: You’ll have to ask Neil on that one. I’m guessing it just has to do with advertising. Is the average lonely housewife that this show caters to gonna go out and buy a crazy $50k ring? Of course not. But it’s not about selling rings. It’s about brand marketing. He wants his name out there just as much as the next person. I think most somewhat intelligent people can distinguish that the rings on this show are over-the-top and their success rate doesn’t hinge on how many rings he should sell in the future.
Just wondering if you saw wedding video from Holly & Blake. Would love to hear your comments on it in your next blog.
Comment: No, never saw it. Nor do I plan to. I don’t see the point.
Hey Reality Steve,
One simple question: when the hell do these BP contestants eat? You practically never see them eat a thing especially when they’re on 1 on 1 dates. I think Ed putting a bite of salad in his mouth on Monday’s episode is the only time I’ve seen someone eat.
Comment: They during the other 100 of hours of footage you don’t see. The 2-hour episode (more like 80 minutes when you factor in 40 minutes of commercials), is over a 3 day period. So they’re showing you 80 minutes of 72 hours of footage. They’re eating. ABC just isn’t showing it. As they shouldn’t. I don’t know about you, but watching people eat isn’t interesting television to me, which is why we rarely see it on any of their shows.
What wedding gift would you sent to Emily and Jeff? What do you send to someone who already has everything? (A jumbo size mirror so they can look at themselves more lol?)
What gift will you send Blakley and Tony if they really make it down the isle.
Do you think Erica Rose will ever get married lol?!
Do you ever snack on chips or ever eat like crap ever now that you’re on Insanity?
I was at the gym tonight and I saw former Bachelor, Jesse Palmer, on ESPN. Think he’ll ever get married? Or Dr. Travis Stork. Think he’ll ever find the right girl after writing “Don’t be that girl” when no women is good enough for him
Comment: 1) Not that I’m worried in the least about having to buy them a gift, but if I have to, I’ll just find their registry and get them something off there.
2) I don’t buy gifts for “Bachelor Pad” couples. This has been explained in the past as to why.
3) I have no idea.
4) I’ve basically cut out all unhealthy snacks since I started Insanity, which was very difficult for me to do. And I try to limit myself to one crap meal a week. At the most two. Which is another huge step for me considering I was eating crap meals probably 10-14 times a week before. The actual Insanity workout will definitely help you, but if you don’t change your diet along with it, you’re not going to get the exact results you need. Sure I’m working out harder and more often than I ever have, but I’m also eating 100x better than I used to. Honestly, that’s been the most difficult part for me. Not saying the workouts aren’t difficult, because they are beyond difficult, however the more I’ve done them, the better in shape I’m getting and I guess you could say they become “easier,” for lack of a better word, than when I first started. But not indulging on the foods that I loved for years has definitely been the hardest part. Only a week and a half left and I’ve completed my 60 day Insanity. Never thought I’d ever do it.
5) I don’t know what Jesse Palmer’s status is with the ladies, but I’m guessing he’s not having much trouble pulling chicks. Travis Stork got married recently.
So I was just reading your twitter feed and it made me laugh. That Kelsey person said u were rude then called u an asshole……Umm what does that make her?! Some people…love your responses to that whole thing too!!
P.S. in one of your recent blogs u mentioned Bel Biv Devoe and Jodeci who I also loved listening to when I was younger (still do) so have u heard of Jango radio? If not It’s awesome. U can customize your own stations. I’m listening to 112 radio and they play all music similar to them. Listening to Blackstreet right now. Talk about a throw back.
Comment: Yeah, I had a little fun last Friday night or whenever it was that Arie lied to everyone by telling them he chose racing over being the “Bachelor.” It was so comical to read something so preposterous, and I knew it would get all of his fans panties in a bunch, so I just had fun with it. And based on the reaction I got from them, they all pretty much proved my point I said in my initial email. Like I’ve said 1,000 times: Some people take this show and these people waaaaaaaaaay too seriously.
I’m still trying to determine my favorite Bel Biv Devoe song. I think a lot of people will probably say “Poison” since that song was their first big hit. But I think I might have to go with “Do Me.” I mean, can you really go wrong with lyrics of “You can do me in the morning, you can do me in the night, you can do me when you wanna do me…” Didn’t think so.
I haven’t been watching Pad And just reading your blogs so perhaps I missed it. if not, why hasn’t ABC been playing up the wedding of holly and Blake? I would have thought that was good publicity for the show?
Comment: They don’t seem to play up any of the relationships that come from “Bachelor Pad.” Sure, they’ll talk about it occasionally, but it’s not like those couples are invited to any of the “Tell All” shows or the “ATFR.” “Bachelor Pad” is essentially the red headed step child of the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” in case you haven’t noticed.
Hi Reality Steve,
I’m watching the Bachelor Pad Sister Christian challenge and I have to admit I’m dying laughing. Honestly, do these people have a shred of dignity left? I just feel bad for Night Ranger! Sarah sounds like a cat dying!
You have mentioned quite a few times recently that the challenges are set up to favor certain contestants. My question is how far in advance are the challenges decided? Was this challenge created because the producers had planned on Michael Stagliano still competing at this stage in the competition, and it was set up to favor him to enter the finals?
Thanks for all you do! You keep me cracking up on Tuesdays and Thursdays!
Comment: I’m sure everything is thought out before the season, but I don’t think they know exactly who will win each one. I mean, would you have predicted the Weatherman winning a pie eating challenge? I certainly wouldn’t have.
No doubt Michael and Rachel would’ve won the final challenge if he was still around. Then again, as I said Tuesday, I don’t think Michael and Rachel would’ve ever won this season because I don’t think people would’ve voted Michael to win the money two years in a row.
