The Bachelor 17 - Sean

The Bachelor Sean Recap Including the Date of the “Women Tell All” Taping and Is Tierra Engaged?

A few of you have asked me why the show is airing episodes on back-to-back nights, and the answer is, I have no idea. Maybe they knew they were gonna do this all along, maybe they had original plans to do something else but it got changed to this, I’m not sure. All I know is when the show began Jan. 7th, they had 11 episodes to air, but only 10 Mondays between Jan. 7th and March 11th. So at some point, they were gonna need to do an episode that didn’t air on a Monday. For Emily’s season, remember they aired the finale on Sunday night then went with the live ATFR show. So either they’d have to do that again, or, air two episodes on back-to-back nights. Now with two episodes airing this week, we’ll be halfway through the season after tomorrow night. Amazing how quickly that goes. Last night we started with 11 girls and after next Monday night, we’ll have four. They should do this every season.

Of course one of those 11 episodes in the season is the “Women Tell All,” and I can now confirm that episode tapes in LA on Friday, Feb. 22nd. I’m guessing that episode will be a whole lotta’ Tierra bashing, so get ready for it because you know it’s coming. Lets also consider this a public service announcement for all former guys from this franchise trying to get early dibs on Sean’s women, since the “Tell All” after party is where former contestants go to start laying the groundwork for whose pants they want to get into. Ladies, you’ve been warned. Or not. Maybe that’s what you’re looking forward to about that weekend. Plenty in the past have.

With today’s recap and a recap coming tomorrow for tonight’s episode, I will combine “Reader Emails” and “Dr. Reality Steve” for Thursday’s column for this week only. So get all your questions in the next couple days to

As for the end of last night’s episode with the promo showing Sean being given a letter by Chris Harrison at the final rose ceremony, obviously a lot of you want to know what that was about. As I addressed immediately on Twitter after I’d received 8 emails in 10 minutes after the show went off the air, if I knew who wrote the letter or what it was about, I would’ve told you already. With that said, knowing what this show does in their teaser promos (you know, like making you think Desiree has a boyfriend back home when it’s all just a prank), I can almost guarantee you that letter is not as big of deal as they’re making it out to be. If we already know the ending, and we know that Sean is still engaged, I can’t imagine that letter having any sort of major effect on any storyline in any way. If I find out more about it, of course I’ll let you know, but lets just calm down a bit about it for now. It doesn’t change anything that happened on that final day.

Selma took some heat in the last week for her behavior on her date with Sean at Joshua Tree, which then became more suspicious when the modeling shoot You Tube video I posted of her half naked was then removed. Well, she did a conference call with the media on Thursday to clear up her stance on kissing on TV, her religion, her upbringing, and her mothers wishes. Frankly, I’m still confused at the whole thing. So now she’s just saying she was born into a Muslim family but isn’t Muslim whatsoever, and she only didn’t kiss Sean because she promised her mother she wouldn’t? Uhhhh, ok. Gotcha. Whatever you say. You can read Selma’s interview here. They’ve split the interview into three parts, so within the link at the bottom, you can click the other two portions of the interview. As always, this column will contain spoilers. Proceed with caution.

    When does Tierra leave… I have to believe that somehow Sean was told he had to keep her around otherwise I have to think he’s just stupid. Why would all the other ladies get along but Tierra doesn’t get along with anyone and yet it’s ALL the other ladies fault? To go from “freezing to death” to being just fine to walk out in the cold again…. really?
    I just want her gone so the focus isn’t totally on her.

    It seems like Sean is lying when he says in his People interviews that he didn’t know the girls disliked Tierra. The proof is in several episodes in a row now that girls have brought it up to him. Not buying his B.S. even though he seems like a nice guy.

    Tiarra makes for great TV. She is so cute. I look forward to seeing her on a weekly basis. I think the other girls are clearly jealous of her. She is NOT there to make friends, she is there for Sean. Period. Sometimes, she doesn’t even do or say anything and the girls make fun of her. I understand that she is surrounded by these woman in one house, but she doesn’t want to make friends. She’s not rude, she just ignores them. When the other woman say that she is faking her injuries, it makes me angry. She was clearly very different after she plunged into the water. She clearly got sick. She may milk the attention from Sean after the fact, but I don’t believe she fakes her injuries. Did I mention how pretty she is?
