“Reader Emails,” Spoiler Updates, Are Britt & Brady Still Together, Next “Bachelor” Talk, BIP News with Additions to the Cast Including Who Showed up Last Week?

Man, another busy day loaded with stuff to talk about regarding the “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise.” I’ve got an update to your spoilers (no, the ending hasn’t changed again. Just more clarification on the date breakdowns coming up), along with someone showing up on Paradise that you shouldn’t be surprised about. Or maybe you should, depending on how you look at it. Also, some “Bachelor in Paradise” teasers for you, what’s going on with Britt and Brady, the latest I’m hearing on next “Bachelor” talk, and Kaitlyn making her media rounds yesterday and also clarifying some things for us. I can’t remember a Wednesday that was packed with this much news. It’s “Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise” overload today so hopefully you’ll enjoy all these nuggets I have for you today. Of course you will because, once again, no one else is reporting any of this. I’m actually kind of surprised at a couple of the things I have for you today because I didn’t necessarily see them coming. So what do you think of the new “Bachelor in Paradise” poster for this season? “Summer lovin. Some are not.” Makes me think of “Grease.” Who will be this seasons Danny and Sandy? Or Rizzo and Kenickie?

Lets first get started with Kaitlyn. She made her media rounds yesterday and, yes, the snapchat video was brought up on a couple of occasions. Granted, she didn’t answer and make a joke of it both times, but at least these people are asking. Although once you ask and she doesn’t answer, and when you don’t press the issue, it’s basically like it never happened. But anyway, in case you missed it, she appeared on Extra where she made a joke that she was in bed with Ryan Gosling:

Then on ET, she just played dumb:

One of the questions I’ve been continually asked all season is did Kaitlyn tell the other guys she had sex with Nick? The answer is, “sort of.” The early season promo made you think that she sat all of the remaining guys down in a room and told them as a group. As I mentioned back when that was show, that didn’t happen. But you knew at some point she told some of them privately, and that’s exactly what she admitted to yesterday:

In case you can’t view the video here’s exactly what she said, “I think because I’d been honest about what had happened with Nick, I felt I needed to be honest about relationships that meant something to me because I wouldn’t want, you know, to go and be proposed to and then later have to go through that and discuss that…I wanna be open with those who I care about, so…” So yeah, that confirms she obviously told Shawn. When? I don’t know but it was before he proposed. As for the other guys, that’s anybody’s guess. Who would you consider “realtionships that meant something to me.” Maybe Ben H.? Maybe Jared? Other than those two, I really can’t see her bothering telling anyone else because, well, she doesn’t seem to show any interest in anyone else. Maybe it was just Shawn? We’ll see, but now you have your answer. She told the guys whose relationships meant something to her.

Also, I can now confirm how the date breakdown happens once we’re finally down to 6 guys. There were 3 1-on-1’s and a group date:

Nick, Shawn, and Joe go on the group date to Killarney National Park.
Chris, Ben H., and Jared get the three 1-on-1’s.

Chris definitely is eliminated during his 1-on-1 date. Jared and Joe are the other two eliminated that episode. Not sure if both are at the rose ceremony or if one is at the rose ceremony and one is before, but they are both gone as reported in the beginning. So that has never changed: 3 overnight dates are Ben H., Shawn, and Nick, Ben is eliminated after overnights. Only 2 guys get hometown dates and both Shawn and Nick’s families are flown to Park City, Utah to meet Kaitlyn.

Also, here is the latest I’m hearing regarding the next “Bachelor.” It is between two guys: Josh Murry and Ben Higgins. I know, that’s a change from my initial posting a month ago that Josh, Shawn, and Cupcake were in the running. Cupcake is out. Either not interested or they don’t want him, not sure. But he’s not going to be the next “Bachelor.” All I’m hearing is that it’s either Josh or Ben with consensus so far being it’s looking like it might be Ben. Kinda surprised on that one just because they usually cast someone older as the male lead. I can’t remember the last time they had a 26 year old in that role, if ever, but it’s down to those two. Obviously this official announcement isn’t coming til later this summer, but that’s where it stands now. They really need to ramp up Ben’s air time in the next few episodes I would think if he’s gonna get it. He’s kinda been MIA since his two-stepping date.

Now that “Bachelor/ette” stuff is handled, lets get to some “Bachelor in Paradise” news. Last week I posted this picture taken from a restaurant at the Grand Mayan Resort that was a cast list for the show:


Now, there are a couple other names you can also add to it:

-Amber James from Chris’ season came on the show. She came in with Samantha and Megan. If you don’t remember her (which I’m sure you don’t), this is who she is:


-And then last Thursday, a familiar face showed up. I received this intel and couldn’t believe my eyes. Could it? No. It couldn’t possibly…wait for it…why…why that’s Chris Bukowski’s music!!!!!!


UN-F***INGBELIEVABLE!!!! Chris Bukowski has done it again!!! Yes ladies and gentleman, if you’re scoring at home, that’s now FIVE shows from the franchise he’s now appeared on. FIVE. Let that sink in. He is absolutely running away and hiding from the competition. This is Tiger at the Pebble Beach US Open. This is Wayne Gretzky in his prime. This guy has absolutely zero shame. I’m almost at the point of doing a 180 on Chris and just applauding him for his self-absorbedness if that’s even a word. Wow. I mean, WOW. Congrats Chris. You are the gold standard by which every fame whoring douchelicker can now aspire to be.

With that said, I can now report that Chris is this season’s Kalon. Remember what happened to Kalon last season? He came on, no one wanted to go on a date with him, so he dated himself then left? That was Chris. He was there for one day and was gone. His Twitter account shows he was at his sister’s wedding over the weekend, but this picture was taken last Thursday, so he definitely made an appearance on the show that lasted less than 24 hours. Just unreal.

Some facts and teasers I can give you about the season:

-The show wraps filming on Friday.
-I initially reported that filming was at the Grand Mayan Resort. Wrong. That is where the contestants stayed when they first got there and that’s where production and crew are staying during filming. The contestants were at the Playa Escondida Resort in Sayulita. The resort was closed off to the public and that’s where all the dates were.
-Carly’s brother Zak got married two weekends ago in Ireland. Carly did not attend because she was filming BIP 2. I don’t care if Zak gave her the ok, that’s completely embarrassing but not the least bit surprising. You missed a sibling’s wedding to be on a reality show? Sad.
-Same exact format as last season in terms of dates and roses. If the girls are asking out the dates that week, then the guys are giving the roses at the rose ceremony and vice versa. Every new person coming on to the show arrives with a date card to ask someone out.
-Ashley and her sister Lauren were considered a “team” on this show. If Ashley didn’t get a rose, then Lauren would have to go home with her. And Lauren didn’t have to give a rose out at the rose ceremony either. Well, that was the initial plan. Whatever experiment they tried to do with casting both sisters failed miserably. Ashley ended up lasting longer than Lauren.
-The dates were just as stupid as last season’s. Just local stuff that wasn’t all that over the top.
-Jared is still not over Kaitlyn and it plays a major role in his storyline out there.
-A lot of these people went into the show with pre-arranged alliances having talked to the other people going on. In one instance, a girl was talking to multiple guys before going on leading them to thinking he was her guy, and it essentially blew up in her face.
-Just look on their social media accounts and it’s easy to see who’s already home. Plenty of them are posting.

I have a lot of the dates and hookups so far but want to have it all for you in one post, so expect that sometime soon. This season will be an absolute train wreck from the info I’ve gotten so far. A train wreck that we won’t be able to take our eyes off of.

And finally, I can report to you that whatever ABC is showing in regards to the Britt/Brady relationship during their :60 credit roll at the end of the show is all BS. They are done. In fact, I’m hearing they broke up a while ago and are just keeping up this façade for TV purposes. A quick look at his social media you see that for a while he was posting all the time about her, but now hasn’t referenced her in about a week. And Britt has barely mentioned him at all. They are done and have been for a while. I was told it ended pretty quickly after Kaitlyn’s season started airing, and possibly even before that. Like, remember those pictures I posted of them in Nashville with his brother and San Diego with his friends? I was told they weren’t even together then and were just going along with the storyline. Also told producers were even trying to get her to come down to Paradise, but she never did. RIP Britt and Brady. It was real. Real dumb.

    I know Ben H is only 26, but he seems to be a mature 26. I wouldn’t mind him as the next Bachelor. He is certainly easy on the eyes.

    Peter Brady for Bachelor!! well, honestly I’d vote for Ben Z. if only because the cat fighting might be better, although Peter Brady will make a good “straight man” bachelor like Sean. Also such a young bachelor will mean more young irritating women like Ashley I and less interesting “older” contestants like Clare, Blakeley, Ashlee… etc…

    I knew britt and brady wernt going to last he was more into her than she was into him. I guess she wanted fame and to date the guys than have a guy chase after her so all the hate kaitlyn is getting by saying britt found love and kaitlyn did check again because shawn and kaitlyn are still together

  4. purplerayne

    June 24, 2015 at 12:49 PM

    @teamkaitlyn Or maybe Brady just wasnt the right guy for Britt? her wanting or not wanting fame doesnt matter if he’s not the right fit.

    BTW love how people call Kaitlyn shallow at the same time as they slobber over Shawn or Ben Z’s physical appearance 🙂 We have seen zero depth from either of them and honestly not much humour or personality. (i dont blame them, well aware its editing). But not shocked that female viewers overlook this and mainly zero in on Kaitlyn’s “flaws”. Jesus, we are predictable 🙂

    It’s really too bad that they couldn’t get Britt to do Paradise. Sure, she’s boring, but the moment Carly and Ashly I saw her walking down the beach with a date card would have been epic.

    And say what you will about Chris, when he decided to put off going to the hospital last season because he had a decent shot at getting laid, the part of me that remembers being single stood up and clapped.

  6. jest002

    June 24, 2015 at 1:15 PM

    Hahaha, Britt’s entrance on BIP would have been epic. Maybe if they didn’t try the whole Britt/Brady thing, it could’ve happened. Darn.

    Yes to Ben H. Whatever edit he’s gotten, I’ve liked. I still get the feeling it’ll be Josh though, which I don’t care to watch. Maybe he’d surprise me….ugh, nah, I don’t want it. If you were F1 and got a shot at a real life relationship with the lead, I don’t care how awful that lead was, I don’t want to see you lead next. He’s got enough IG followers to sell his product.

    Makes sense on Britt/Brady. That friend-zone segment eased the audience into the break-up, so their explanation won’t come as a complete shock – at least I don’t think. lol People were already questioning it based on SM activity. Funny they both showed Elan major support around the same time.

    Well, it would be great if Shawn and Kaitlyn made it work. They certainly get tested on this season and seem to come out of it happy. Despite everything, I still imagine the FRC will be more convincing than Chris/Whitney.

    If Josh doesn’t get The Bachelor gig I bet Andi will be LHAO! I knew Britt wasn’t going to stay with Brady. How could he extend her quest for her extra fifteen minutes of fame? Maybe she should give Josh a call. I heard Andi and Kaitlyn were yucking it up having lunch together in NYC. I wonder if it is Nick that is making them laugh?

  8. vessel

    June 24, 2015 at 1:52 PM

    I’m still hoping the next Bachelor is Josh just because from what I’ve seen he seems to have a bigger personality. If it’s not him I have no problem with it being Peter. He’s cute and seems like a nice guy. I guess my only concern is his age-with him being only 26 will that mean the bulk of his contestants will be 26 and under? I mean hey I’m 10 years older than my husband so I’m not complaining if they do give him a bunch of older women, in fact I hope he would get a variety to keep things interesting. Just guessing they might lean toward casting younger women and I hope I’m wrong.

    As far as Carly not going to Zak’s wedding in Ireland, I can guarantee she isn’t the first sibling to miss an overseas wedding and I’m sure she won’t be the last. Doesn’t matter if it was scheduled at the same time as BIP filming. I, in fact, missed my sister’s wedding, in Italy, in 2001. Why? Because I couldn’t afford the $1,000 airfare. Simple as that. I’m sure Carly is bummed she missed her brother’s wedding, but I’m happy she was able to get a free trip instead.

    I see Jade hasn’t posted yet on her Instagram. I’m not surprised, but I can’t even guess who she’d be into from the guys listed.

    Art from Bachelor New Zealand was 26 and the woman he chose was 24. I’m not saying they’ll last. The odds are against all the couples from this franchise, no matter their ages. But I don’t see it as a problem. If two people are lucky enough to click, they’ll click and continue dating after the show. If not, age is probably the lesser of their bigger issues. As far as drama goes – the show is going to cast those character types either way.

    I disliked Carly W so so much, I cannot believe she didn’t go to her brothers wedding. Zak W is such a great person I can’t understand how these two are related.
    Secondly, I’m over the term slut-shaming because it puts all those who oppose Kaitlyns actions into one box. For me it’s not slut-shaming but about a million other arguments but can’t be bothered elaborating anymore.
    I wish Ben Z would be considered for Bachelor, he could carry a franchise.

  12. washbee

    June 24, 2015 at 4:38 PM

    i think ben should get the bachelor gig. sure, josh probably deserves it for putting up with andi and all, but i’m still rooting for ben.

    i really do like kaitlyn a lot, and i don’t think this slut shaming is fair, but yikes, boinking someone with the whole crew next door?

    and if she had already told shawn that “he was the one”, then i don’t see why she had to sleep with nick. i mean, sure, you can use the excuse that “i need to sleep with someone before i get engaged” after all, that’s a very valid point. but if shawn was the one, then she never had the intention of picking nick, therefore she didn’t “have to” sleep with him to see if they had that sexual chemistry. and how much can you really tell from one night? bottom line, i would have respected her way more if she would have been honest and said that she was horny, and that’s all it was.

    Jesse Palmer was 26 when he did his stint as bachelor.
    The bachelorettes that were 26 when they lead were Ali and Ashley H

  14. ladyjane747

    June 24, 2015 at 7:46 PM

    I’m not crazy about Josh (and those huge teeth), but he’d make a more entertaining bachelor than Ben H., who’s a little dull. I think Nick would make for an entertaining bachelor too. If Josh is the next bach, he’ll be easy to make fun of.

    This Show is so entertaining. Thanks for making it better Steve!

  16. nora j

    June 24, 2015 at 10:55 PM

    Oh god please no Josh M….he was sooooo absolutely boring and unattractive and the way he talked UGH. All he and Andi did was argue and he claimed to be religious but then he had this annoying temper and blamed the whole sex thing on Nick as if Andi didn’t have a part in it. .

    Ben H sure is easy on the eyes.

    Josh doesn’t deserve this…he’s old news anyway. Does anyone really even care about Josh? I really really hope it’s Ben H.

    Steve Britt and Brady are still together might want to check with your snitches they are wrong but I’ll just wait for the day you correct this

  18. duckquack

    June 25, 2015 at 12:51 AM

    nora j…………You nailed it on Josh aka bullfrog er bull dog…and his eyebrows, plastic as they come….Andi is the only other beyotch that shares his plasticity…Them horse teeth are scary, producers would have to make sure he always had hay to chomp on…What a chump trying to blame Nick and still talking about it, like a little boy who didn’t get his peanut butter jelly sammich……..bah f**k Josh and the frog he rode in on….

    Ben H…..for Bachelor
    Ari ……….for Bachelor
    Brad Womack …round 3 would be hilarious and get some people going bonkers….lol
    Nick ……..for Bachelor

    As far as Nick getting him some off of Kaitlyn, the 2 of them had a long twitter session…it built up and it was bound to happen…
    plus he came on the show strictly for Kaitlyn, that tells us something…unlike the other yolks who came to play with 2 Bachelorettes.

    I’m looking forward to BIP, but not to seeing Carly again. The only person more annoying and brainless than Kaitlyn is Carly. I’m glad Britt turned down BIP but I’m not surprised. There is no reason on earth why she should consider a dumb show like BIP.

    I’d be happy with Josh as bachelor. Someone mentioned his big teeth but the only big teeth I’ve noticed is Kaitlyn’s. It’s like she can’t get used to how much bigger her teeth have become since having work done and having her lips done too isn’t helping.

  20. illylover

    June 25, 2015 at 6:29 AM

    I’m with you @veno – I think they’re still together. Brady just returned from a week in LA hanging out with people (Caitlyn Crosby of the Giving Keys) that Britt hangs out with. He had no gigs out there. I’ll wait until they say they’re kaput. Since the “Kaitlyn chooses no one” debacle. I’m not inclined to buy, 100%, into the Book of Steve. He was so off the mark with that “no one spoiler” even with fact-checking his sources and only found out about it after a multitude of fans spoiled it. If Kaitlyn’s snapchat hadn’t gone out into the interwebs, RS would probably have had to eat that rotten spoil at the FR episode. Ouch.

    And I’m not so sure Kaitlyn’s snapchat was a booboo. I think she put that out there intentionally. More to do with curbing the anti-Kaitlyn wave than anything remotely like tossing a pie in RS’s face.

    When i first saw the batch of new bachelors (and I posted this then), I said Ben H. was the best looking of the bunch and nothing he has said/done has changed my opinion of him. He is very handsome. I thought Shawn was fuggly then and still do. Very shallow of me but so be it!

    As for Josh…with those glow in the dark teeth and wanting to gain some fame (now that baby brother Andy is a nothing quarterback after all), I’m not in favor of him being chosen as bachelor. He was such a pussy with Andi.

    Brady (another fuggly looking dude) and Britt…so not interested in their relationship and wish the show would let them go for good!

    Wish Kaitlyn had met up with mush mouth Nick before the show, did the nasty with him and let it be! He is such a putz and how in the hell can his parents watch their son repeatedly make an ass of himself! If he was my son, I’d smack him so hard! And I can’t look at the curly q’s he has for hair without laughing! He sure makes eye contact with the camera every chance he gets also! Doofus!

    Tenley is going on BIP? Wow! Kiptyn must’ve really broken her heart.

  23. momma3j

    June 25, 2015 at 10:30 AM

    @washbee, regarding: “and if she had already told shawn that “he was the one”, then i don’t see why she had to sleep with nick.”….
    I personally think editing played a role in the timing of what she said to Shawn vs when she slept with Nick. I’d be willing to bet she told Shawn she felt the same as him after she slept with Nick.

    @Adrie and @brick. everyone is entitled to their opinion and I disagree with yours on Carly (and Kaitlyn, @brick). Both have similar “tell it like it is” personalities and that’s exactly what I LOVE about them. They aren’t pushovers and refuse to let anyone take advantage of them or the people they care about. I wish nothing but the best for both of these women.

  24. jessicat

    June 25, 2015 at 11:54 AM

    I agree with what you said, lilylover. The only reason Steve got this spoiler right is because it was spoiled by other people. If Kaitlyn hadn’t sent that video out, Steve would still be saying she didn’t choose anyone. So he didn’t correct his own spoiler, other people corrected it for him. He’s so arrogant about being right and degrades people for questioning him…….yet he was wrong about this season.

  25. missannmcd

    June 26, 2015 at 1:08 PM

    Geez… so sick of hearing about that airhead wannabe Britt. Let her go back into obscurity quietly…

  26. brick

    June 29, 2015 at 7:28 AM

    momma3j, Carly is common and vulgar, and she’s the sort of girl I’d expect to meet at a trailer park. Same goes for Kaitlyn. And I do think of both as girls who’ve never grown up, certainly not adult women.

  27. brick

    June 29, 2015 at 7:32 AM

    Actually the more I think about it, the more I think Carly is perfect for a show like BIP. No class, brains, or maturity required…
