Back with another live video chat tonight at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST taking your questions on all things “Bachelor” related. Of course if you wanna go off board and ask anything about what else is happening in the TV/entertainment world, that works as well. I’m a little behind on a few of my shows right now. Almost caught up, but for the record, let me just say I’m thoroughly enjoying “Real World: Skeletons” and “The Challenge.” I took about a 4-5 year hiatus on those shows until last year when I got hooked again and watched both. Now I’m in until they decide to stop making them. You know why I love both of those shows? It boosts my ego. Makes me realize that even though I did some pretty stupid things in my 20’s, what I did and how I acted wasn’t nearly as ridiculous and over-the-top as some of those lunatics. So thanks for making me feel better about myself “Real World” and “Challenge” cast. I think you’ll come to realize when you look back 10 years from now that the things you think are important in life (drinking, hooking up, and fighting on camera) are not all they’re cracked up to be and you will hang your head in shame for your behavior. Trust me.
At the 2015 Winter TCA Press Tour, it was announced yesterday that “Dancing with the Stars” spring season premiere is March 16th. Why is that relevant to the “Bachelor?” Because that means the “Bachelor” finale will be the week before, March 9th. And if you carry out the math for every Monday from now until March 9th, there’s one more episode than there is Monday’s. So expect them to double up at some point this season and air back-to-back episodes on a Mon./Tues. They’ve done it a few times now and they’re gonna have to do it again. They’ve usually done it mid season, so expect that announcement to come shortly.
I missed this after the premiere episode, but former SNL cast member Rachel Dratch, most well known for her “Debbie Downer” recurring character, has decided to do a vlog recapping the “Bachelor” episodes on FunnyorDie.com. Good stuff. She claims she’s never seen the “Bachelor” until this year, so you’ll have to get through all her naivete when it comes to what happens. But nonetheless, still very funny.
