“Reader Emails (Part 2), “Dr. Reality Steve” Plus News & Notes

“Although we’ve come…to the eeeeennnndddd of the road…” Yes my friends, this is the last “Reader Emails,” and “Dr. Reality Steve” until the “Bachelorette” starts up again in May. Also, tonight is the last live video chat until then as well. Please don’t shed a tear. Be strong. Of course that doesn’t mean there won’t be a lot happening on the site for the next two months, because there will be plenty of action. I will be spoiling the “Bachelorette” as it films in real time, and delivering to you more guys that have been cast this season. Granted, a lot of stuff I will spoil first on Twitter as it’s happening, but anything spoiled there will make it here to this column eventually, just might be 2 or 3 days later. But starting next Monday, we are back with “Daily Links” as I basically do all your dirty work for you. I scour the internet for all entertainment/pop culture stories currently happening while giving my thoughts on them. I usually try to have 15-20 stories a day, so I hope that quenches your thirst until next season rolls around. It’s been real everyone. See you on the flip side.

A few things to get to today before we finish up yesterday’s batch of “Reader Emails” and this week’s “Dr. Reality Steve.” As we know, most of America seems up in arms over the 2 “Bachelorette” announcement voicing their displeasure. Including pretty much everyone from Bachelor Nation, mostly all the ex-“Bachelorettes.” Emily, Ashley, Des, Ali, and Andi have all said on Twitter they don’t like the format but have all said they’re #TeamKaitlyn. Well, Sean took to his blog the other day and gave 3 reasons why he hated it as well. Some I agree with, some I don’t. But this notion of sexism and this format has all the feminists up in arms is what has me confused. What, it took THIS format for you to call the show sexist? I’m sorry, but this show has been laced in a form of sexism for 29 seasons so lets not all the sudden play the moral police when there’s 2 female leads that are chosen by the guys. Sorry. Not buying it. Especially when each of the girls had the opportunity to say no. No one is forcing them to do it. They might not like it and would rather it would be either of them, but they agreed to do it.

This other thing I’m not understanding is the notion that “this is embarrassing to the women. How degrading to get rejected by 25 guys.” First off, again, they chose to do this. Secondly, how is Britt or Kaitlyn arriving night one of Chris’ season competing against other women and possibly being rejected really THAT much different than this. ANYONE that goes on reality TV has the opportunity to be embarrassed. In fact, you’re probably lucky if you don’t get embarrassed. Saying one of them is “getting rejected by 25 guys” just isn’t true. We’re assuming this is gonna go like Byron’s season and the audience will be privy to the vote that goes on today/tonight when filming starts, and we’ll see which guys chose which girl. You really think the vote is gonna be 25-0? Of course not. I’m seeing a 15-10 maybe even 14-11 vote one way or another. It’s not like one of these girls is gonna get every vote, then yes, that would be incredibly embarrassing getting rejected by all of them. But it’s not gonna happen. And aren’t they already building a storyline where say one guy votes for the girl who loses, then both end up on “Bachelor in Paradise 2” finally getting their chance to date? You know it’s coming.

We don’t know all the details yet of how filming is going to work, but it does start today, that’s for sure. Mike Fleiss tweeted this morning:

Now I’m sure you don’t remember, but Byron’s season was done completely different than we’ve ever seen on that first episode. Normally it’s nighttime, the girls show up in limo’s, there’s a cocktail party, then a rose ceremony, and then we’re off. On Byron’s season, the women moved into the mansion and all met each other before meeting the 2 Bachelors, which they didn’t know about. Byron and Jay were in another room watching video footage of these women behind the scenes as the women mingled with each other. Then they brought Byron and Jay out to their surprise, and the “pool party” mingling continued as each guy broke off with girls getting to know them better. This was not formal at all. Then that night, was the first ever “ladies choice rose ceremony” where they voted. Yellow rose for Jay, white rose for Byron, the girls put each one into a box while the guys backs were turned so they didn’t see who voted for them. Chris Harrison then opened up the box and the first guy to 13 roses was declared the winner, which was obviously Byron. Jay only had 7 at the time, so they only showed 20 of the 25 votes. All I’m saying is that’s exactly how they did it last time. No idea if that’s how it’s gonna be tonight. I’m just saying by Fleiss’ tweet, it sounds like they are starting filming in the day and might follow the same format, but that’s just a guess. In the past, we always know the producers start tweeting at night when the limos are arriving. So this could be a hint they’re starting in the day and maybe doing it similar to Byron’s season, or not. Time will tell.

You see this poll that EOnline ran yesterday? They showed 25 random guys Britt and Kaitlyn’s head shots and asked who they’d pick. Kaitlyn won quite handily. Granted, it really doesn’t matter because these aren’t the guys making the choice, and these guys were just going off a head shot. Not to mention the guys today are already coming in with preconceived notions about Britt and Kaitlyn. However, it does play somewhat of an importance for people who’ve emailed since Monday saying the guys are no doubt gonna pick based on looks, therefore Britt is gonna win. Not necessarily.

All your post season conference calls are up now with the final two girls, along with Chris’ final blog for Had nothing but glowing things to say about Whitney and how great everything is and yada yada yada. I’ll be sure to bookmark this blog he wrote for the inevitable break up. Look, I don’t expect him to say anything different, but what Chris wrote in this is nothing different than what JP, Ben, Brad, and everyone else wrote. Becca had her conference call with the media and basically said, “Yeah, I wasn’t in love with him and wasn’t nearly ready for that life,” which might’ve been the understatement of the year. Then in Chris and Whitney’s conference call, they said everything you’d expect them to say. Nothing different than most past couples.

One final thing. I’m gonna need the weekend to put together more guys profiles (I have a partial or full bios for another 8 guys now), so I will release more guys next week, along with some information I received on a few of the guys I’ve already given you. Nothing too major, just stuff I didn’t have before I posted them. So keep it on Twitter all weekend long because we have no idea when it’ll be spoiled. When I find out, whether I’m the first to release it or not, I’ll let you know as soon as I do.

Live video chat tonight at 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST for the final time until May. Maybe we’ll go a little longer tonight. All depends on the questions since we have a lot to cover. See you tonight.

    about britt being bachelorette, i just dont see why any guy who watched the show would want her. besides all the crying, its the the bitchy caddy judgemental attitude toward chris soules for being on a date with kaityln who skinny dipped. remember how she chastized him for “rewarding inappropriate behaviour”? why would any guy want to get involved in that? britt even tried to make chris feel bad for that date by saying other girls in the house are questioning his intentions. what a bitch! why wouldnt a guy want to skinny dip, tell jokes, make out, laugh, make out and have a good time?

    Regarding the letter from the friend of “Lacy”, her mom needs to take a beat and stop watching True Crime TV shows. The Asian fiance’ can’t just whisk her out of the country without warning. That’s called kidnapping. And Lacy would also need both a valid passport and a Visa to leave the country, neither of which can’t be gotten instantly.

    Lacy sounds like a flake and honestly mom should be more worried about the state of her daughter’s mental health than the fiance’s vague plans.

    Alright Britt, time to lay some signature “just long enough so that he thinks i totally want to sleep with him” hugs on 13 guys.

  5. Amanda

    March 12, 2015 at 12:25 PM

    It sounds like the people who are so concerned about “Lacy” are racist/xenophobic and are trying to couch it as a legitimate concern.

    For the woman who lost 100 lbs: don’t be so hard on yourself. Most women do not have perfect naked bodies. Have you ever even seen any “real” naked female bodies (i.e. not strippers or porn stars)? Good on you for loving yourself enough to lose the weight. Be proud of that! If you feel like you need to warn people, go right ahead, but I’m sure you’re your harshest critic.

    Being an attractive woman who is single and looking is a double-edged sword at times. Yes, it’s easier to attract men, but you also attract men who only really like you because they think you’re pretty/hot/whatever and then you have to weed them out because you can’t base an entire meaningful relationship on that.

    March 12, 2015 at 12:30 PM

    Good point Amanda, about the “concern” for Lacy. Obviously she’s an adult, but mom doesn’t seem to trust her decision on whom to marry. Definitely sounds like the Asian part is key or else the letter writer wouldn’t have even mentioned it. “Damn furriners a’comin’ here to steal our wimmenfolk!”

    I think the whole “I won’t watch The Bachelor if it’s Britt/Kaitlyn” is hysterical… especially the idea that it will impact ratings. Anyone that is that cray-cray that they’d not watch the show because the wrong Bachelorette gets picked (and I suppose they’ll hold their breath until they turn blue too) lives on the show’s lunatic fringe. Yeah, I get that they’re out there, but it’s a small, small percentage. I think most of the comments we read like that are just venting from people who have a preference. But people who will actually follow through and not watch the show?? That’s a Tiny percentage of nut bags. Not even worth mentioning. Don’t forget, 25,000 nut bags (and I doubt it’s that many) don’t even move the needle when you’re talking about viewership of 7M. That’s like 1/3 of a percent. That stuff makes me laugh.

    Now if people tune in and it’s a snoozer, and people don’t buy in & get invested in any of the contestants or the Bachelorette, then THAT could impact ratings. The Bachelorette has had an incredible run. But some day they’ll miss and it will be the beginning of the end. It’s hard to imagine, though, because you’d think a season like Juan Pah-Blow, and obvious tool with zero serious interest in the girls or even feigning interest, would have tanked & it didn’t.

    i didnt watch because it was andi. im a nut bag. can we not insult each other? but i guess thats the kind of audience this show brings.

    March 12, 2015 at 2:15 PM

    also, dont forget something very important. how we watch tv has changed. i come here for the dialogue, i go to steve for spoilers. i go to ihategreenbeans for the funny commentary. i dont watch the show, only but some clips that the producers upload to their youtube channel (which is gone, btw). i cant be alone in “watching” the show like this. and i see this way of “watching” growing.

  10. elizabeth82

    March 12, 2015 at 2:21 PM

    @rob22, I’m not on the show’s lunatic fringe and I boycotted seasons of “The Bachelor”: Brad 2.0 because been there done that and dude needed therapy not another season of this show, and these because I didn’t like them from when they were on “The Bachelorette”: Jason, Jake, and Juan Pablo. I’d do the same for Britt: this show’s a big time commitment and there are too many good books out there to watch a lead of this show that I don’t like. Just sayin. (And it’s kinda like voting–it may mean nothing, or maybe it’ll make a difference.)

  11. angelfish

    March 12, 2015 at 2:49 PM

    “Boycotting” the show and then going on message boards to proclaim your stance, always has the ring of “I’m so much better than you because I won’t lower myself to watch such trash/crying girls/boring guy”.

    Why bother even talking about it or reading about it if it’s beneath you? If you come here to comment, SOMETHING about it attracts you.

    It’s like proclaiming you don’t eat chocolate, but you greedily lick the wrapper.

  12. fcew

    March 12, 2015 at 3:00 PM

    What elizabeth82 said. I only started watching because I heard that Juan Pablo was a d-bag, and got dumped by three girls, which apparently is a lot for the Bachelor franchise. I hadn’t watched since Trista went on The Bachelorette. I watched Andi, but didnt find her very interesting, but I liked Chris. So I watched his season. I’m invested enough in Kaitlyn and her story (plus I think she is hysterical) to watch her show, but I will vote with my viewing if Britt is on – my husband would be super relieved to hear that I wasn’t watching this next season and am giving the franchise a break. I’m not doing it to be vindictive, I’m doing it because I don’t give two poos about Britt or her character finding “lurve”. I’d rather watch paint dry.

  13. vessel

    March 12, 2015 at 3:48 PM

    Yeah I agree that many people pick and choose who they watch based on if they like them or think they’ll be interesting. The only lunatics are the ones who proclaim “I won’t be watching if ______ is cast!” on social media actually believing ABC cares and might be influenced by this. I know they’re not. And yeah it’s doubtful I’ll watch if it’s Britt. I’ll still read here and I Hate Greenbeans, etc. but why watch someone who irritates you two hours every week? I slogged through Desiree’s season and wished I hadn’t wasted my time. Why make that mistake again unless the lead is someone likable to me? I might change my mind if I read that it’s a really good season despite her, though. We shall see.

    Former Fat Friend,
    What about a swimming/beach/boating date of some kind early in your relationship where you wear a swim suit that doesn’t hide what he might “need” to see. He can make an informed decision before feelings get too strong, and you might get a good indication just from his body language where his mind might be and either be able to open yourself up more to him, or brace for the brush-off.
    Another thing I would suggest is to keep an open mind when it comes to the men you choose to date. I am sure that there are just as many excellent guys out there who can check off all your boxes except for some equally superficial thing, such as age, height, or hair loss that becomes far less important once you get to know them.

  15. justforfun

    March 12, 2015 at 4:25 PM

    @vessel, completely agree. I was so bored watching Des’s season that I tuned out until the very end. I will watch the bachelor no matter who it is because the women bring the entertainment & drama. Not the case with the men on the Bachelorette. I won’t be boycotting the show if Britt is chosen, will just choose not to watch. I don’t think that makes me lunatic fringe for not watching someone I find extremely annoying.

  16. jay2

    March 12, 2015 at 6:35 PM

    @ Confused in Miami: so glad to hear that you are moving on. I know it’s really, really hard, particularly because you were head over heels with him. My advice: be kind to yourself, allow yourself to mourn/grieve the end of the relationship so that you are ready to put it in your past and move forward with someone else. He may divorce and look for you in the near future, you never know, but if that happens, at least he didn’t divorce because of you, otherwise he will forever bring it up during fights. You deserve a single man who is for you and only for you, you will find him.
    Google how to get over a breakup/mend a broken heart, there are plenty of links from psychology magazines, etc and I think they are pretty good. They will tell you to do things that you used enjoy and they have suggestions on how to go through this process. Good luck!

    March 12, 2015 at 7:58 PM

    Like I mentioned earlier, I wish we didn’t have Bachelorette shows. Men are infinitely more interesting The only season I liked was Trista’s. These people profess to boycott a season with Britt but they sure tuned in every week to see what she would do next. Kaitlin is as boring as Andi was.

  18. cjscjs711

    March 12, 2015 at 8:21 PM

    Kaitlyn’s supporters have reason to be upset – they thought their girl had it in the bag, then ABC threw this curve. And so they express their complaints. Now their candidate could lose!

    Britt’s supporters are not so upset! Their girl is getting a chance. Not so motivated to write.

    How many times did we read, “If they choose Chris instead of Arie, I won’t watch!” How many times and how vehemently? A lot. These are threats and they apparently don’t matter. No matter who is chosen, a LOT of people will be upset. And look at Chris’ season – it was the women who ‘made’ the season. Him, his personality, barely at all.

    Why would there be weeks filled with crying if Britt were Bachelorette? If someone hurts Britt’s feelings, she can just send him home. There will be no other women there to act like they’re her friends to her face, then try to sabotage her behind her back. She’ll be the ONLY woman after night one.

    She cried more about the women’s duplicity toward her than losing Chris. I felt for her. In most cases, it was Chris the women had an issue with but unlike her, they did not confront him with it. Instead, they showed their hostility not to him but to her. When Britt had an issue with Chris about Kaitlyn taking her bottoms off, she went to him about it. Knowing it was a risk.

    She had trouble with the format. She said it at least twice: Chris would seem to have a deep connection with her, then turn to someone else and connect with her. First time she said it to him was on that first night of extreme girl-kissing/saliva swapping by Chris. It was not realistic on her part to think he could keep giving the rose on group dates to her, given the show’s requirement to string everyone along for the ride for as long as possible.

    I’ll watch either way, but my first impression was to like Britt and thinking about it overall, I still do. Kaitlyn is the non-threatening, gal pal, but not even very romantic and pretty guarded with her feelings, unless it’s humor. Do I look forward to a season of her over-done laughing at off-color jokes and remarks (ala Jimmy Kimmel’s)? NO. I’d rather watch Britt, but I’ll be there either way…

  19. momma3j

    March 12, 2015 at 8:27 PM

    I still stand by what I said on a different post: if Britt is cast as the lead, i will not watch this season. Like others said above, why would I waste two hours every Monday to watch someone I can’t stand? I have ended friendships IRL with people whose personality clashes with mine. I certainly won’t be “entertained” by a total stranger for an entire season that falls in the category of a toxic individual. @rob22, it actually would make me a nut bag for subjecting myself to the torture, not staying away from it. duh

    i don’t know why Steve Carbone has a hard on for britt… on wait, i do.. that is why he is single! i love his blog and commentary, but honestly, every season he seems to like a certain type. It is not a big deal, but he needs to realize that maybe if he found a different type of girl he wouldn’t be 40 and single. Kaitlyn is hilarious and my husband and I always find her the best. I actually don’t find Britt attractive in the slightest. Her head is too big, weird body, boring personality and too hippiesh for me. She does have great hair, so +6 on that!!! Good luck Steve, but I think many people will agree with me that Kaitlyn is petite, but with muscle. Pretty face, great personality… her hair may not be the best, but her style is on point!
    have fun at your 40th and I wish you luck as you enter the next 10years of your life. You say you are into sports and watch basketball/football yet you are not into the type of girl that you can kick it with!

    March 12, 2015 at 10:53 PM

    I do find the posters here to be a rational group, able to calmly state their views without attacking others that don’t feel the same way. There are some real nut job rabid fans on twitter & instagram. Yikes!
    I just watched Kimmel, and while interviewing Sean Penn, Sean admitted to being a bachelor fan, and he is team Kaitlyn! 🙂
    I have a feeling Kaitlyn will get the gig. The producers would be crazy not to go with the one *most* of the fans want. I guess we will know soon.

    As a guy, my perspective is that Britt seems to ‘not have grown up’ emotionally because its clear that she thinks its acceptable to either throw a hissy fit or cry every time something goes wrong in her life.

    This is a Big Red Flag for nearly every guy out there who is really looking for a long term partner.

    The only way that I think the new Bachelorette season’s guys might choose Britt over Kaitlyn is if (1) they didn’t watch the WTA or the last episode that Britt was on to get an idea of what she can be like when she’s not happy, (2) they are just on the show to promote themselves and have no interest in finding anyone for a LTR so they might as well pick the woman who flirts better, (3) they’re tools who will do whatever they’re told to do by the producers, and are told to pick Britt.

    I don’t think Britt is bad, per se. Its just that somehow she never developed the character to realize when its ok to show you’re upset, and when its better to keep things a bit under wraps even when you’re having a bad time. Imagine the horror this show would have been had there been 25 women who ALL cry as readily as Britt did when she got upset…yikes.

    March 13, 2015 at 7:33 AM

    I’m not sure I understand why people are saying there is so much support for Kaitlyn. I see so much MORE support for Britt! The things people are saying about Britt make for GREAT television and ratings. Regardless of whether you like her or not the show needs her. Kaitlyn will not get good ratings. Do you really think Sean Penn is going to watch the show? HELLO!!!!!!!!

  26. vessel

    March 13, 2015 at 8:19 AM

    There is no way to predict what kind of ratings Kaitlyn, or Britt would get. To make assumptions based on personal preference is really kind of silly.

  27. mush

    March 13, 2015 at 9:52 AM

    guys, dont forget, steve doesnt read these comments. this forum is just for us to discuss. youll have to email him to get his attention. and i think kaitlyn will bring ratings. of course she will. heres a topic for discusion: with all the public support for kaitlyn (anna kendrick, sean penn, sean lowe, etc, etc) and the studio audience at the after the final rose cheering for kaitlyn and even booking britt, how could abc not put kaitlyn in the role. theyll create a very negative feeling in their viewers which theyve never done before a season even started. heres the question. i wonder if abc didnt contractually promise the role to britt (seems obvious after the first episode that she was cast as the next bachelorette) and then try to rescind once they saw her performance on the show and viewer reaction, but couldnt legally. so their way out of having britt is this duel bachelorette idea in which both girls get paid whether they are chosen or not. ill email steve about this too.

  28. hattiebloom

    March 13, 2015 at 10:40 AM

    Trust me @mush…..Steve reads the comments despite what he may claim.

    Steve may read the comments, but he’s never blocked any posters, censored or berated anybody for what they put here in the comments section.

    Now mocking and insulting the emails he gets is a different story. One of the reasons I’m a huge fan!

  32. nesai

    March 13, 2015 at 5:00 PM

    I don’t see the survey with the 25 men credible. The men that are going on the show are looking for wife material. They should interview 25 men that are ready to settle down. As Kaitlyn getting the popularity vote from celebs. I don’t think they are credible either. For example; Ana Kendrick has 375mil followers on tweeter, but only 14k people favorite her tweet for #TeamKaitlyn. That doesn’t represent the whole bachelor nation. Which looking at ratings is about 6-8 million viewers. I feel it’s more like a clique for the Kaitlyn campaign people are just solely agreeing with all these popular people to bash someone.

    I don’t think Britt deserve all that hate. They are both beautiful and strong women. They wouldn’t have signed up for it if they couldn’t handle the rejection or the controversy against them. I hope Britt gets the gig. I want to see if she will be able to represent herself in a better light or see if confirms the judgement people say that she is fake. With more footage of her as the Bachelorette.

    As for Kaitlyn, yeah she’s fun, but that’s all I see fun. I don’t think she can hold her own on the show. Especially with 25 men. With Chris season she only got to where she got due to promise of sexual innuendo. Her comments “you can plow me anytime” and pulling off her bikini bottom only shows the immaturity. I didn’t even know who Kaitlyn was up until she became the final 3. Chris only wanted sex with her in the FS. He didn’t care about her feelings. To take her aside and talk to her like he took Becca aside. Don’t get me wrong I love Kaitlyn style and her joking nature, but I don’t see her falling in love and opening up to the guys.

    Kaitlyn kind of messed it up for herself. Getting too cocky. Setting up photoshoots to make her look like she’s already bachelorette before the announcement. She seems too entitled to that role which is due to all the press she’s getting for it. I feel Britt was gracious and appreciative for the opportunity. She seems more humble than Kaitlyn. Who’s just spiteful and even bitter. She haven’t moved on and let go of the last season with Chris regarding the stunts Britt pulled when it came to her. Britt needs to be more self aware of her actions, but she did apologize. She’s the type to speak before thinking. Her jumping and cutting people off mid sentence. Doesn’t show maturity either.

  35. mush

    March 13, 2015 at 10:10 PM

    kaitlyn did what the producers told her to do, photoshoots. she tweeted what the producers told her to tweet. people magazine or whoever did the photos tweeted out a pic of her photoshoot. how is any of this kaityn being cocky? so strange. and britt is NOT humble. so many reasons why she isnt, but i just cant bother anymore about britt.

    I know Steve is offline, but does anyone remember the fictional show that is going to be about the bachelor behind the scenes? He posted it a month or so ago, and I can’t comb through posts to find it. I want to make sure and bookmark that – not sure when it is airing. It was about the same time he introduced the DRATCH.

  37. hattiebloom

    March 14, 2015 at 9:18 AM

    @angelfish posted “Steve may read the comments, but he’s never blocked any posters, censored or berated anybody for what they put here in the comments ”

    How would we know if Steve blocks people since they would no longer be able to post? He in fact did block a friend of mine and claimed the only way he knew she was saying rude comments about him was because other readers were “complaining” and his “moderator” pointed it out.

    Regardless of what he says he does…..getting kicked off this site was certainly good for a few laughs.

    Not true at all, I received a personal email from Steve asking me not to post certain things. So, he or his moderator read the post, forwarded it to Steve and I received the “request”. Don’t assume you know everything @angelfish.

    Steve pretty much has to claim he doesn’t read these comments, otherwise he’d subject himself to questions and answers via the comment board and it would add another layer of communication that he doesn’t want…..understandably.

    Having said that, to think any blogger or Steve doesn’t read the comments is naive. There is no other way to gauge the temperature of your writing or gather feedback on tone. Steve reads these comments….no doubt. And there’s no “moderator” either…..but it does tickle me that he claims there is one.
