Reader Emails

“Reader Emails,” and an Interview with

A few things to cover before we get to your “Reader Emails” for the week. Once again, some jerk off is trying to impersonate me on Twitter. No, I haven’t changed my Twitter name because of the lawsuit. This person isn’t even bright enough to realize that the lawsuit would have nothing to do with changing my Twitter name. Why would I have to do that? Makes no sense whatsoever. Secondly, if I was changing my Twitter name, I’d do it by announcing on my REAL Twitter name, “Hey, I have a new Twitter name” so that all my followers would know it’s me, or, by announcing it on this site where thousands and thousands of people would see it and know it’s legit. There are dumb people in this world, and there are dumb people in this world. Then there’s people ten levels below that, and that’s this person trying to impersonate me on Twitter this morning. Believe nothing of what you see on Twitter regarding me unless you hear come directly from my Twitter account, or, you hear me talk about it in a column.

In a somewhat related note, a few of you have emailed me regarding the comments section on my website about stuff not getting through. Well, we’ve changed things up a bit and now I have people monitoring any and all comments that come through due to a few crazies out there who’ve taken things too far. So some comments are going through right away, and some are being flagged and put in a queue until approved, so no need to send double or triple posts because you don’t see your comment posted. Other people are monitoring those on a somewhat hourly basis, so don’t waste your time posting the same thing 5 times if you don’t see it. If it gets flagged once, it’ll get flagged every time you post it.

Ratings for Monday’s premiere episode are out, and depending on what side you want to believe, they could be good or bad. Overall, the episode drew 6.8 million viewers. Of course, if you read the tweets of certain people involved with the show, they’ll focus on the fact that the “Bachelor” won it’s timeslot with the women 18-54 demographic. Which is great. But they do that every week. And that’s all they care about. What those same producers tweets don’t tell you is that it was down 12% from last season’s premiere. Granted, it did go up against that atrocity that was the ND/Alabama game, but lets not forget, last season Ben’s first TWO episodes went up against bowl games. His premiere was Jan. 2nd, which was technically the New Year’s Day bowl games because they got moved back a day, and his 2nd episode went up against the LSU/Alabama national championship. So yeah, Sean’s overall viewership dipped a bit, but I expect it to pretty much maintain throughout the season. It’s going to average 7-8 million people, with the finale drawing the biggest audience. As long as they win the coveted women 18-54 demographic for two hours every Monday night like they have for the last “x” amount of seasons, they’re good.

Yesterday I did an interview with Celebuzz recapping the first episode of the season. You can view the video here:

And today I’m very excited that someone from the RW/RR franchise has asked for an interview as well. Now granted, my RW/RR Challenge viewing basically stopped about three seasons ago, but nonetheless, I’m excited to talk to Susie Meister today, former winner of the “Gauntlet 2.” She has a podcast at interviewing people in the television/pop culture world. I’ll include a link to the interview tomorrow once it’s up.

    To the emailer who talked about the Bachelor Party and there not being any strippers….
    I worked in a strip club as a cocktail waitress and I can tell you while someo of the girls (Strippers) are broken a lot of them are just like you and every other girl who posts on the column. The strippers do not want your man. They want his money. The majority of men don’t want those women. They want to look at a naked women dance. The guys just set there at their tables quietly drinking beer. They aren’t as bad as you think. I once made $700 tip off of 1 table in a couple of hours. It was a bachelor party. I am glad that I did experience working there because now when my boyfriend goes to one (so far has been 1 time in a year and a half) I don’t care because I know what they are all about.

    Eres guapo? Very humble, senor Steve. 🙂 Heh heh.

    The whole “strip club as bachelor party” thing is, I guess, typical, but now people are getting more creative and thinking of other “guy” types of things to do at bachelor parties. And maybe the groom isn’t comfortable at a strip club, or it’s just not his thing, so the plan is to do something else “manly” like drive race cars or go to a beer tasting. So what? It doesn’t mean the guy(s) are any less of a man.

    Also, Columbo starred Peter Falk, not Robert Blake.

    To the e-mail that referenced posting a spoiler on Emily’s twitter…

    I did the same thing on the ABC site message boards. The day before the premier, i was bored, and reading through the message boards on the ABC Bachelor site. One string was talking about how they couldnt believe that there had been no spoilers posted, and commetned that it was a first or something. So, i thought, “this could be funny!”
    I posted the final four, and then said the Catherine wins.
    I think everyone on that string jumped down my back at how rude and appaled they were that someone would have the nerve to post something like that on someone elses string. I mean they were pissed. they flaged my account and by the next morning all my comments had been deleted. i thought it was the funniest thing ever, and sort of want to keep screwing with them.

    This is a Fake TV romance where you win the chance to be a little miss? I can think of better prizes to win.

    Also, because you know some pathetic plebe from ABC reads through this stuff daily, here it goes.

    I stopped watching the bachelor before the 2nd Jason Mesnik season. I only started watching again as soon as I found Reality Steve. You can guarantee that you will lose viewership if you keep bullying Steve. Many people only watch your show now, to see that Steve was right. I know that i will not watch if the spoilers get shut down.

    Thanks for doing what you do Steve. I appreciate the info and the laughs.

    Thank you, Steve for the laughs as always. To show my support in this lawsuit I am not watching this season.

    ABC, if you are reading, I’ve watched EVERY season of the Bachelor, Bachelorette and B-Pad, with the exception of Emily’s. After about two episodes I just couldn’t take her any longer. The only reason I watched this fake show for long was because this column paired with watching the Tweets made it funny!

    To the person who sent the reader email asking Steve about getting an iPhone app-
    I was hoping for the same a while back but understand his reasons for not getting an app. So I have his site saved to my home screen so now I can access it that way. All you have to do is open the site in Safari, click on the arrow, and select “Add to Home Screen.” I know it’s not the same thing as an actual app, but it’s a quick and easy way to access this site on my iPhone and iPad without having to go through Google or Safari’s history.

    ^I find the issue is that it’s hard to read on a mobile device not that accessing the site itself is hard.

    Understand why it wouldn’t be a priority, though. Always read it on a computer unless I’m on a trip.

    ^ Completely agree with you, elizabeth92. I don’t like commenting from my iPhone because it doesn’t show what I’ve already typed so it’s hard to catch and fix errors. It also seems to take all the comments a long time to load on movile devices. Most of my time on RS is spent while at work anyway. 🙂 (I think that’s the case for a lot of us!)

    Sorry, I meant elizabeth82. Can’t blame my phone on that one.

    she seems very nice, but why would you agree to go to a hotel with a man you haven’t even dated yet. are you really surprised he expected to have sex with you? sex toys or not, if you go to the hotel with him, you are both expecting to be sexual without knowing anything about eachother.
