Another day, another group date out in the open for the public to see. One thing to remember while the “Bachelorette” is filming is that this is episode 5. They’re not even halfway through the season yet. The show isn’t trying to hide these particular dates. They know this stuff is public and people are going to be taking pics, or else they wouldn’t do these dates in front of people. Is it really a big deal who you see is on the show in episode 5? Of course not. You notice in the other public dates (boxing, comedy club, sumo wrestling, rap battle) the only pictures you saw were for people standing on the outskirts of the date. All the people who were attending this “private” taping couldn’t bring their phones with them or else a ton of more pictures would’ve gotten out from those dates. The only boxing date pictures were by paparazzi who were on the outskirts of the ring. People in attendance weren’t allowed to snap photos. No phones were allowed in the comedy club date hence the reason no pictures from it. Notice everyone standing around the ring in the sumo wrestling date not one of them had their phone out taking pics? Because they couldn’t. Only pics and videos from that were from people higher up on the second level (like my family was) and pictures taken after the date was over (like they did as well). Everyone in attendance at the rap battle wasn’t allowed to have their phone either, with the exception of a few that got shots in, but most were taken afterwards with Kaitlyn, Ashley I., Nick, and Sharleen. Same with Ben Higgins’ two-stepping date on Tuesday. So it’s not like they’re just letting people who attend their dates just snap away. They don’t. All the pictures you’ve been seeing are people on the outskirts of the date.
I say this because there’s a lot of stuff about this season so far that hasn’t gotten out yet. Pictures can only tell so much of a story. But soon enough as we get closer to the ending, I’ll start spilling more contestants and who’s who in these pictures. Lets just say I can’t remember a season that’s had this much, shall we call it “messiness,” since the season started. I mean, geez. Here’s what I’ll tell you now. Four episodes have been completed (ep 5 filming now in San Antonio), and not even counting Brady who eliminated himself during the first rose ceremony, FOUR guys have exited the show before a rose ceremony took place. I can’t remember that many happening that soon in any previous season. Hell, have we ever had four people eliminated before a rose ceremony over the course of a WHOLE season, let alone the first four episodes? Talk about self implosions. What an interesting group of guys. This is going to be highly entertaining based on what I know so far.
Yesterday’s group date took place in Market Square, where the guys had to write Kaitlyn a song and then perform as maraiachi’s dressed in full gear. I was spoiling and tweeting this out on Twitter all day yesterday, so here’s some of what happened:
As for the date itself, a few details:
-The guys had to write Kaitlyn a song, then perform it for her
-The only guys on the date that I’ve given you so far are: Nick, JJ, and Tanner. All the others I have bios, pictures, and info on that I will release at a later time. There’s no need to now because I want to see how this starts playing out
-The little kid you see with Kaitlyn in that last picture is Sebastian, a popular mariachi singer in San Antonio. You might remember him from “America’s Got Talent,” and also sparked controversy when he sang the national anthem at a Spurs playoff game and some people got pissed off
-Nick is seen here with Kaitlyn on the balcony:

-Nick was the only one of the guys to serenade Kaitlyn up on the balcony. The rest of the guys just went up to her and sang to her as she sat on a stool outside the restaurant
-The night portion of the date had the guys loading into a van and going to the Enchanted Springs Ranch in Boerne, TX.
-Today is the final date in San Antonio with the rose ceremony tomorrow night. I don’t know where they’re headed after San Antonio yet, but if/when I find out, I’ll tweet it out.

-Our “Survivor” recapper Bryan Fischer has your “Survivor” recap up now. Jenn’s move last night playing the idol obviously worked, but judging by the votes, it looks like it only spares her an extra week. Blue Collar all voted together and looped in Tyler and Carolyn for 7 votes against Jenn. Those people stay together (minus Kelly now), they should have the vote 6-5. Then again, this is “Survivor” and things never usually go as planned.
-Especially when Probst is already promoting next week’s episode as the best yet this season. He might be a shill for his show, but he’s the best shill out there.
-So we know April Fool’s came and went yesterday, and Catherine’s fake pregnancy picture went over about as well as a turd in the punch bowl. Yikes. Basically what this proves is no matter what you say on social media, at least ONE person will hate it and let you know about it. Yes, I get that there are some women who can’t have children. But geez, jumping all over Catherine for that? I don’t know. I don’t see it as bad as others did since the second I saw it, I knew it was a prank.
-Since Josh was in LA this past weekend for the IHeardRadio Music Awards on Sunday night, then appeared on DWTS Monday night in the audience with Robert Graham, he was asked by E! if he’s do DWTS. Of course he would. Who wouldn’t? However, the only way Josh has a chance at that show is if he becomes the next “Bachelor.” They’re not just gonna ask a guy to do it that was final 1 on a season from a year previous.
-SNL host this week is Michael Keaton. Here are his promos for Saturday’s show:
-Hey guess what? The Kardashians are getting a spin off show. I know, I know. Exactly what all of you were asking for. “How can we get more reality TV shows centered around the Kardashian brand?” Look no further, because “Dash Dolls” is coming, which looks at some of the employees who work at the Kardashians store “Dash.” Should be riveting television, I tell ya’.
-Katy Perry really had an interesting April Fools Day. First she tried to convince everyone she’d gotten a Kris Jenner pixie cut, which was just about the ugliest thing she’s ever tried to pull off. Please, never again Katy. We all like you. I’d rather not have to hate you for the rest of my life. No. Pixie. Cut. Thank you.
-Then to top things off, Katy accidentally gave out her phone number when she shared a video of her dog Butters on Twitter and Instagram, and the dog tag clearly showed her number. Needless to say all the crazies (and yes I would’ve been one of them if I knew about it early enough) started calling immediately and she had to cancel the number. Ohhhhhh, the texts I could’ve sent her…
-Fox has ordered 8 episodes of the reality show “Bullseye,” to be hosted by Kellan Lutz. People are basically turned into human bulleyes for fun. Count me in. Here’s the trailer:
-Soleil Moon Frye has lost 40 lbs on NutriSystem and now she’s showing off her body. Awesome. But lets get one thing straight here: Her name is Punky. Punky Brewster. Get it right. With a born name like Soleil Moon, you knew she’d embarrass her kids by naming them something funky, and boy she didn’t disappoint going with names like Poet, Jagger, and Lyric. Hope she has enough money to pay for their therapy.
-For someone around my age, this story will interest you. And you probably have to be a male. But as a 14 year old 8th grader in 1989, sitting in my backyard during my birthday with my friends huddled around a boom box listening to N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton” tape, to see a biopic has been made delights me to no end. I will no doubt watch this:
-Since Jimmy Kimmel pranked Chris last season but unexpectedly waking him up, I guess Rihanna thought she’d return the favor and did the same to him recently. This is how it went:
