We are getting down to the nitty gritty. We’re almost there. Coming down the final stretch. Heading home. And any other cliche you can possibly think of. Included in this week’s recap are the Nick videos I posted the day the first episode aired. Since we are now officially down to the final two, I just wanted to either refresh your memory on exactly what Nick said two days after the final rose ceremony ended, or for some of you who’ve asked over Twitter and email, giving you a chance to see them for the first time. Not sure how if you follow this site you hadn’t seen those videos yet since they’ve been up for two months now, but apparently some of you hadn’t. Probably why you never understood any of the Cheetos references. Regardless, those videos are up along with being transcribed. Also, on the last page of today’s post are your “Men Tell All” spoilers. Usually a very formulaic show, but they did do a couple things this season they hadn’t done before, including one “surprise” (as Chris Harrison referred to) that still has me scratching my head. I need to see this play out to understand why this was done.
Marcus had his conference call with the media last week after getting eliminated and basically said a whole bunch of nothing. However, the funniest part of his interview is that the awful site RumorFix.com actually took his answers at face value, and since he said he hasn’t been doing much since he got back, they took that to mean he’s not engaged to Lacy. Wow. Are these people that stupid? Did they honestly think he was gonna say in the interview, “Oh yeah, after I left the show, I went and did ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ I met a great girl, and now we’re engaged.” Idiots. Marcus wasn’t even “officially” confirmed by ABC as being on “Bachelor in Paradise” until today. Nice reporting, Rumor Fix. Your credibility takes a shot with every story you post. Marcus and Lacy got engaged at the end of “Bachelor in Paradise.” Everyone will see that in a couple months.
Hey everyone, Renee Oteri is pregnant! Whoa, wait a minute. You mean the girl that got home from filming Juan Pablo’s season in the first week of November, reconnected with an ex sometime there after, got engaged the last week of February then had a shotgun wedding with no family members there on March 21st is now announcing less than 4 months later she’s a little over 3 months pregnant? Man, if I didn’t know any better…you get the point. Called this when she went off and got married three weeks after getting engaged. Can see right through this one.
Ratings are in and the “Bachelorette” dipped a tad from last week. What’s most embarrassing is that it still outdrew the season finale of “24,” which was excellent. Everyone should be embarrassed of themselves that they care more about Nick’s fairy tale books than Jack Bauer samurai swording a dude’s head off. You will never be forgiven. And as Jack so eloquently put it last night, “Your entire world will come apart and you’ll never see it coming.” That’s how I feel about the 6.64 million people who watched the “Bachelorette” last night. I hope Jack Bauer finds you. I’m excluded from that because, well, it’s my job and I have to watch.
Don’t forget in less than 2 weeks now (13 days to be exact), I’ll be in Armonk, NY at Fortina’s for a finale viewing party. Already over 60 people confirmed to be there, and we’re still taking more. A portion of the tickets purchased will go towards LiveLikeEric.com in honor of Eric Hill. If you haven’t purchased a ticket yet, or just want to donate, head over to this link and do so before July 28th. Thanks to everyone who’s coming out that night and looking forward to meeting everyone.
