Reality Steve

The Bachelor 17 - Sean

The Bachelor Sean Recap Including a Minor Correction to the Spoilers

Ahhhhh, back in the saddle again. For those of you who haven’t bothered to check back here since the last episode of “Bachelor Pad” ended, welcome back. You sure missed a lot. But no worries, I’ll get you caught up. It’s been quite a last interesting month to say the least having to deal with another lawsuit, but hey, I guess I’ll take it as a compliment. As far as I know, with over 200 reality shows currently on television airing on numerous different channels, I’m the only blogger out there who’s being sued for spoiling one. Just think about that. Tons of reality shows on tons of different networks, tons of people who write about stuff they know is going on behind-the-scenes and plenty of spoiler sites, yet I’m the only one being sued for it. I’m flattered to be hated so much by one show. Thanks guys. If you want my thoughts on the lawsuit, scroll down to the post under this one where I give my thoughts. I’ve made it pretty clear what I think about all this.

With that said, nothing on the site is gonna change. In fact, good news to report today, I’m actually going to stick to a schedule this season that will have a MINIMUM of three columns a week. Yes, you heard me correctly. The guy who wrote maybe 3 columns all of December will now be coming to you three times a week. Here’s the schedule:

Tuesday: “Bachelor” recap
Wednesday: “Reader Emails” & any other show related news
Thursday (morning): “Dr. Reality Steve” & other news
Thursday (night): Live video blog

So get all your emails in at Tomorrow’s column has quite a few from the month of December that I never got to, plus whatever has come in this month. “Dr. Reality Steve” is kinda light right now, so for all your love/sex/relationship queries, feel free to ask me.

For those just coming here today because you just want to skip to the end and find out what happens this season, you can find your spoilers clicking this link, or by navigating at the top of the page by going to “Spoilers,” then “The Bachelor,” then “Bachelor Sean Spoilers.” You’ll notice one minor correction in the spoilers that in Episode 4, I originally had Catherine getting the 1-on-1 date at Joshua Tree. It’s actually Selma who gets that date, meaning Catherine doesn’t get her first 1-on-1 date until Canada when they visit an ice house together. Something clearly shown during the previews last night.

So one of the producers actually decided to respond to someone who said they had read the spoilers. Probably not a smart thing to do since now, I’m gonna basically hold him to it. Here was the exchange three days ago between Producer Robert Mills and a fan:

“@AliLaPreze : AHHH I am so mad!! I just came across the spoiler by accident of who wins Bachelor! @Millsy11374 say it isn’t so so I can be surprised! 🙁 ”

“@Millsy11374 : @AliLaPreze all I can say is dont believe everything you read”

Really? Don’t believe everything you read? So when this season plays out exactly like the spoilers say, am I allowed to call out “Millsy” for lying to twitter followers? Dude, it’s best you just don’t respond to people like that because now you’re flat out lying to her. At least if you don’t say anything, it casts some doubt. But when she says she read who the winner is and you tell her “don’t believe everything you read,” you’re telling her that the winner isn’t right, when we all know it is. Well, at least a select few do. I understand they are trying to deflect attention from the spoilers (despite filing a lawsuit and drawing a record number of people to my site yesterday for a premiere episode), but to out-and-out lie to them? Bad business. Just wanted to point it out today, then when the finale airs, be sure to mention again that in the beginning of the season a producer said “don’t believe everything you read” even though everything you’ll read in the spoilers is right. Spoilers are a part of this show now. It’s inevitable. If anything, it adds to the enjoyment of people watching the show, not detract from it. I can’t for the life of me understand why the people over there just don’t accept that and move on. Lets gets started…

    Wow. I was completely surprised that this episode started out with Sean and Juliette eloping. I mean we all saw the previews and I, incorrectly apparently, assumed it would either take a few episodes to get there or they were misdirecting us with the hype, but NOPE, bang they’re hitched. On the other hand, no shock that Scarlett fell right back into bed with Avery, I’m so over her sorry butt. How can one female be so sorry, sad, pitiful? I want to like her but I can’t respect her, she’s just…..backboneless. (Don’t judge, I did make that up, sounded better than spineless).
    I was happy to see Rayna, in the end, didn’t write off the family. Nothing to get a momma’s back up, like someone (her dad in this case) threatening your family. Again, surprised to find out that Teddy did, in fact, know about their daughters’ parentage. I’m loving the twists. No surprise with Avery ditching his band to “get his time in the limelight”, I hope they continue to keep a story line for his band. I’m a little confused where Scarlett and Gunner are headed, I want better for Gunner, guess we’ll see where they take them. Another non shocker, was the ending. Ok I was surprised it happened so quickly, within the same episode, but “poof” Juliette changes her mind and runs from the actual ceremony and the previews show her asking Sean to sign divorce papers. Can we all agree, we’d like to see them keep Sean around?

    I just came across this article and LMAO. Wouldn’t you know Emily found another way to keep herself in the spotlight. Wasn’t her 15 min. up a long time ago??!!

    Sean Lowe may have taken over as center of attention on the new season of The Bachelor, but Emily Maynard’s feedback is still deemed of utmost significance. After all, this is the guy Emily decided to reject during her time as the Bachelorette. Fashion lover to the end, Emily shares her thoughts on the best and worst dresses of this season’s premiere.

    GAH can we NEVER get rid of her? “Utmost significance”? Really? Does she write this stuff for herself? YES her 15 minutes were over about 2 years ago.
    @karyn – where’d you read that?

    @Randais: I almost fell off the couch when I saw that it was him that bought the firms debt. LOL. The look on Alicia’s face was priceless! lol. I love love love that they cast Michael J Fox in that part and that even with his illness he is still willing, and able, to work. I also love the character he plays.

    @Randais, I’m with you, I didn’t think they would start the episode with Juliette and Sean eloping either. I found the rest of the episode fairly predictable, and I think we all knew she wasn’t going to go through with the wedding. I’m glad Rayna did the right thing by not yanking her kids out of school to go on tour. Will be interesting to see how that distance affects their marriage, good or bad. I’m sure at some point her tour and Deacon’s tour will somehow cross paths. And yep, I wasn’t surprised either that Scarlett ended up back in bed (ummm or couch in this case?) with Avery. She continues to bug the hell out of me though, and if Revenge and Nashville ever had some weird crossover episode, I wouldn’t be upset at all if Scarlett’s character got killed off by Fauxmanda or The Initiative. 🙂

    Next week’s episode looks good!

    @iheart – I hadn’t considered, the “tours crossing paths” angle. I think you may be on to something. I also, find your “crossover between Revenge and Nashville” idea hilarious, in a “story line, not reality” sort of way ;). I’m starting to think Juliette needs help though, she definitely has Diva personality disorder, DPD.

    @iam – I KNOW! I love when a story line takes an unexpected twist/turn and that was sure an UNexpected one! Perfectly, scripted at the very end of the episode when no one would be expecting anything along that line. Michael J. Fox is excellent in this role and I think he brings a lot to the show. I also, like that they’ve introduced his wife, I like her character too but have to wonder how “innocent” she actually is with regard to his “business/actions”…..I’m looking forward to finding out.
    I’d be willing to bet, based on his inconsistent appearances, that the show is working around his illness and kudo’s to them for being that flexible.

    Forgot to say “Hi” to Liz123 in my last post. Welcome back!!

    @Karyn, I’m not surprised Emily’s keeping herself in the spotlight one bit. Honestly I’ve stopped reading things with her name in it. Wetpaint seems to love her as they’re always covering what she’s doing. So annoying.

    @Randais, hey what can I say, I’m just really annoyed by Scarlett and wish she would somehow get written off the show. Maybe her band will make it big and they’ll get to travel and the white haired man will mess with her plane- problem solved! lol

    They did a great job casting people for that show. Hayden Panettiere plays the diva character well, Connie Britton is genius, and I think Powers Booth does a great job with his role as well. He plays the powerful, rich mean guy role well, just as he did as the evil President Daniels in 24. I miss that show so much.

    *The Good Wife*
    @Randais, that’s the same thing I said. I think it’s great that they work around his schedule and he is able to work inspite of his illness. I think it says a lot about that network and the producers.

    I really like that his wife is now involved also and I wonder what kind of drama she is going to bring. =) Going to be interesting to watch. lol.

    Last Resort tonight, for anyone who’s still watching.

  12. iheartvino

    I never did get around to watching any episodes of Last Resort However, I’m super excited for the return of Scandal tonight. There’s a new Grey’s tonight too, but that show is declining in my opinion. This may be my last season if it doesn’t get better.

    January 10, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    @iheart- did i see white haired man? in a nashville post? haha.. i agree with u about grey’s.. i used to be a HUGE fan.. but it just got so old and repetitive, and it lost my interest.. sure there were good episodes still, but i think they have dragged that show on for far too long now.. it almost devalues the show.. and thats what i DONT want to see happen with revenge.. i want revenge to end on a high note so the integrity of the show isnt lost..

  14. iheartvino

    January 11, 2013 at 9:44 AM

    @kasey, you definitely wouldn’t like it now then, because they have a whole new group of intern newbies and are trying to make them bigger characters. The only episodes I like are the ones that still focus on Mer, Derek, Christina, Bailey, etc..

    And yep! I was just thinking of how it would be if Nashville and Revenge ever had a crossover episode, there’s a character on Nashville that is extremely annoying and I was thinking the WHM would be the perfect person to somehow kill her off. lol (Not that the two shows would EVER collide- can you imagine the Hamptons clan in a country honky tonk bar? ha)

    @randais, I found the Emily article somewhere on the sirlinksalot website. It’s .net, not .com. This is the site where I found RS years ago, but he no longer lists his site on it.

    I finally watched The Bach last night. Sean’s not as bland as I remember. And I thought the cheesy interaction between Sean and Arie was adorable. I just don’t find Sean that attractive except for his magnificent body, but I’m not big on blondes. Somehow I ended up married to one, but got rid of him (legally) a long time ago!

    I agree with a lot of the first impressions of most of the women. Ms. Shades of Trashed/Trash was really trashy. Sean handled himself well with the women and showed more personality than I remember. He seems like a genuinely nice guy with good morals and values. I didn’t think I’d get into as much this season, but hooked again.

    The Soup
    Does anyone watch this show? Joel McHale had a hysterical end of the year show, and he had a bunch of 2012 reality show contestants singing We Ruined the World to the tune of We are the World. It was hysterical. I remember seeing Kalon, Charlie O’Connell and a few others from the Bachelor franchise.
    Here it is….enjoy!

    Clarification……they are obviously not all 2012 contestants.

    This is probably old news, but I just wanted to thank you for making your site mobile-friendly, previously it was almost unusable, limiting me to reading only when I was in front of my computer. Now it works great with my Android phone. Muchas gracias.

    @iam – thought I’d keep this comment here since it is about The Good Wife, and you were the only one conversating with me about it :D.

    **Good Wife**
    I like the Elsbeth character so I enjoyed this episode. Elsbeth’s intelligent insanity keeps me guessing.

    I loved Will’s face when the three judges strolled in and started the proceedings all in French. I also, loved the judges faces when Will turned the tables by bringing in Diane who surprised all of the foreign judges by understanding everything they were saying and called them out… French.

    I did find it a bit contradictory, just from my perspective, that a girl who is struggling so badly with herself about having an abortion, had no problem telling her lawyers to lie so she would win. Just me, I guess, but both seem equally moral struggles.

    “When the law’s an ass, someone has to kick it” my favorite line of the whole show.

    Side note on Kacie’s dress … Erica Rose also wore a hot pink version on last season’s Bachelor Pad … way to recycle, Kacie!!
