What is with all of the food on the fantasy suite dates (and really other dates as well, but particularly the fantasy suite dates)? There were like 10 plates of food spread on the bed for two people the morning she woke up with Jordan. Huh? I noticed JoJo took one bite for the camera in each wake-up shot, but otherwise we never see anyone eat. It’s like they sit in front of a (either decadent or massive) meal and don’t touch it. What gives? Are they eating at craft services between takes? Is that even real food in front of them? So strange…
Comment: Because watching someone eat on television is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Not to mention microphones can pick up eating sounds.
I’m amazed that we’re 32 seasons in to this franchise, and people still care about why we don’t see people eat on this show. Well, no I’m not.
A few weeks ago when Lairen/Ben announced the show, Kaitlyn made a snarky comment, as well as liked some tweets from people saying they should have a show over Ben/Lauren etc. She also made a comment about never being treated well by the show….. Fast forward to tonight, she tweets about no invite and Shawn calls out the show for having Ben/Lauren instead of them.
I am sensing a major beef, for whatever reason. It does seem Kaitlyn has done a few things post show, but not a ton. Also, seems like they may be bitter ABC isn’t wanting to pay for their wedding?!?
Lovin’ juicy Bachelor drama…
Comment: Certainly seems like they don’t like not being included in things. However, I have no idea why the show tends to shy away from them. Maybe this is her punishment for spoiling her own season? Not to mention she has been pretty vocal about what it’s like being on this show and how manipulative it is. Maybe they don’t like that and think she’s too much of a loose cannon.
Help me Steve
I have made Bachelor/Bachelorette part of my bonding with my “bonus” daughters. We always pledge not not to “cheat” and check your site out but I know we all do ?
I told the girls there was a season where the winner came in the first limo as the runner up got sick on the way and was throwing up. I can’t for the life of me recall whose season of The Bachelor this was from?? Can you help me educate the next generation of Bachelor viewers??
And, we live down the street from Izzy “Onesie” Goodkind’s parents and can’t wait to see what she wears on BIP-lol
Thank you for your help!
Comment: I believe that was Jesse Palmer’s season, wasn’t it? And Tara from Oklahoma was the one who threw up? I just don’t feel like googling it right now, but off the top of my head, I think that’s the one.
They just spent half of the After show talking about all the sh*t they’ve gotten since she chose Jordan. Didn’t we just spend two hours pretending we didn’t KNOW who she chose? I just found that funny.
Comment: Well, it wasn’t from the sh** they got for her choosing him. It was just stuff about him in general.
Is it just me or did Jojo seem anything but happy on the After the Final Rose. She said the right words, but she wasn’t smiling much, she was tense, it just seemed very awkward between the two of them. The body language was very telling that things are not good. Usually the final two are gushing over each other, but she just sat there. Very odd.
Congrats on the stellar spoilers 🙂
Comment: Seems to be the running sentiment. I just didn’t see it any differently than past ATFR’s really. Maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention.
1. Were Jordan and JoJo lying about the house? Or are they just playing pretend for a while? I’m sure they did. Although, she did say “buy,” which I find hard to believe since, well, Jordan doesn’t have a job and doesn’t have any money. So either she bought it herself, or they’re renting.
2. I just read Andi’s book and boy, she tore Josh apart. What are your feelings on the book? Did you take a side in their breakup??–obviously after reading her book Josh comes off as the bad guy, but there is always another side. What is your take on their break up? Didn’t read it. But the stuff that was sent to me was stuff I’d heard while they were still together. Short tempered, controlling, and very jealous.
3. Continuation of the last question – do Amanda and Josh have a chance of lasting in your opinion? I really have no idea. Unless he changes his ways, I’d say no.
4. How come you think Robby doesn’t have a shot to be the bachelor? I don’t want him to be, but what’s your reasoning?
Comment: Too much negativity surrounding him, comes across as fake, is trying WAAAAAAY too hard, and just won’t get it.
I’ve watched every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and have been reading your site for years. I don’t doubt your spoilers because not only are they almost always true, they just make sense. One thing that took me a while to be convinced about was how every time you tell the readers how you don’t see this couple walking down the aisle/making it last. I guess the turning point was Whitney and Chris. I was convinced they would make it and they broke up quicker than other couples. I don’t doubt for a minute that Jo Jo and Jordan will break up, I agree with you 100% there, I am I guess you could say confused on how this could be anything but a guess. If after the proposal, Jo Jo and Jordan are on their merry ways with the exception of meet ups in different locations, nothing is being recorded of them from the final proposal to what we saw last night, correct?
Whether they have huge blow ups on the phone every day or haven’t disagreed once, how would any of us really know except for what they divulge to their family/friends/producers. They just both seem utterly convinced in their minds that this is their forever love so wouldn’t they be telling family/friends/producers that everything is just perfect or are they really telling the producers of the show that they are struggling? I know my mother had heard my husband and I have one pointless argument before and she was convinced we would be getting divorced when it meant nothing to us and we forgot about it minutes later. Is there any signs besides just typical fighting and struggles with the rumors that make you convinced they are on the verge of breaking up? Again, I agree they won’t make it, I just don’t know how enough convincing evidence could even be there to assume that with both of them putting on such a happy front for the world!
Comment: Yes. I’ve seen and heard plenty of things. And I’ll leave it at that.
I was a big fan of Bachelor Pad and was disappointed when it was cancelled. The reason I heard was because it was too trashy for the network. But then they brought Bachelor in Paradise to the network, which is ten times trashier. What changed?
Comment: No, Chris Harrison said the reason BP was changed to BIP was because they didn’t feel BP was true to the franchise. The franchise isn’t about making money and competing in challenges, so they wanted to make the summer show more like their “big brother,” the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette.”
Longtime reader, first-time writer. Your website makes the show so much more entertaining.
Chris Harrison is typically obnoxious with his teasers, but when he beats a dead horse it is so uncomfortable and almost painful to watch. Case in point: how many times they teased Jordan’s relationship with Aaron last night and how persistent he was to get an answer out of Jordan. He has also done it before trying to get Nikki to talk smack on Juan Pablo. It is such bad interviewing!! Do the producers make him uncomfortably prod those questions? Do you think he realizes how horribly awkward it comes off?
Keep the spoilers and commentary coming!
Comment: He’s the show mouthpiece. He has to ask what is pertinent and relevant and what people are curious about, whether he thinks he’s gonna get an answer or not.
No question, just wanted to congratulate you on a great season. Also, I 100% agree with you that JoJo and Jordan will not last. No way… She’s delusional!
Comment: Mark another one down in that column.
Long time reader here! I just want to say how great I think your site is! People need this type of site to remind them that reality tv is still just that-a tv show!! People get so caught up in the lives of the leads on these shows its scary!
If these “readers” were really going through every article you write they would see that you are a very kind and compassionate person. I can’t count how many times I have read that you “feel sorry” for the contestants-like Olivia for example. You also wrote a few times I believe that you felt bad for JoJo for being blinded and you hoped she would figure out the truth about these guys before it was too late. I agree with many fellow RS readers that something about JoJo seemed way off last night. She almost gave me that ‘deer in the headlights’ feeling at times. I especially noticed on Kimmel that Jordan seemed very chatty-more so than past winners. I felt like he was almost, at times, talking for her or over her. We will see! Well thanks. I appreciate it. Not everyone sees it like you, and that’s ok. People who do nothing but whine and bitch and hope that I’m wrong every season are just jealous. That’s all.
I do have one question-do you think ABC thought/thinks that having no engagement or a couple that has broken up before the finale is a horrible thing for the series? I was telling my husband last night that I would have been more excited to see JoJo bring Jordan out and basically put him on blast? How would that make for bad tv? I mean it is more realistic right? I know if it ain’t broke why fix it-but I am really hoping we see some change up on this show soon. It’s getting too boring to watch (if that’s even possible).
Thanks for all you do! Keep up the spoiling and stay true to yourself!!!
Comment: I think it’d be great for ratings and talking points, but could set up a negative feeling towards the following season. As stupid as it may sound, most people want to watch and see a love story at the end, regardless of if it works out in the long run. But on that 11th episode, it’s much more intriguing for two people to get engaged at sunset, then break up.
Thanks for another great season of spoilers. I’m ready to move on! I don’t usually watch BIP but I do read your site. It amuses me that people will believe the most ridiculous scenario but they won’t believe that Jo Jo and Jordan are putting on a show for everyone. I think in a lot of cases they believe what they want to believe. Jo Jo was not a happy girl last night. She looked upset and ready to burst into tears. I hope to make it to your party next year! I would never win the trivia game. I am not good at remembering details of previous seasons. It will still be fun to attend. Looks like a good time. Anyway thanks again!
Comment: She has done what I thought she would. She stood by her man. She’s not letting the tabloids and stories about Jordan get to her. Why? Because Jordan told her they were untrue, so she believes him. Oh, ok. Sucks for her and she’ll learn the hard way unfortunately.
Can I just say YAWN? Is it just me or are the seasons getting more and more boring? I am not sure if it’s because I read your blog or the crop of contestants is just getting more and more shallow and less dynamic.
I have been following your blog and every season the people I watch with threaten me not to read. But I of course can’t help it. Have to sit there through every episode with my mouth shut when I already know what is going to happen. But seriously, the writing is ON THE WALL.
Wish that The Bachelor franchise would require people with actual interesting lives and not a bunch of media wanna-bes. It’s very boring.
Anyways, thanks for your unbiased, truthful reporting!
Comment: May be boring to you, but 8.5 million people disagreed last night. The show is what it is now. Next season will be more of the same. Same show, different people.
Congrats on another accurately spoiled season! As far as JoJo & Jordan go, I was one of those people that thought she didn’t look too happy last night on the ATFR, but she seemed much more relaxed and affectionate with him in the other interviews (GMA, LIVE w/Kelly & Kimmel). If you’re right and they are on the rocks or just faking this right now, why would Jordan be so quick to relocate to Dallas? Is any truth to them already buying a house together or is that just a ploy to get people to buy into their happiness? Her friend randomly posted a tweet last night saying she brokered the deal for their new house. That seemed a little suspect to me. Why feel the need to randomly tweet that out? Because her friend Kathryn LOVES inserting herself into this show. She’s a piece of work I tell ya’. She has to let everyone know every four seconds that JoJo is her best friend. People like that annoy me. These two are putting on a façade. People can choose to believe them or not. I don’t.
And Is there any truth to the rumor that Jordan had already secured this new SEC gig before going onto the Bachelorette? Is this job located in Dallas? This was answered on page 1 today.
Also, they replayed the same MTA trailer of BIP last night during ATFR but they had obviously cut out the clip of Amanda and Josh in bed. Do you think there were complaints to the network about the nudity or or some other reason they cut it? Amanda has been shown in most all of the previews, but not Josh (just a distance shot of the two watching fireworks and then his voice proposing to her at the end). He seems to play a big role this season so why wouldn’t they show him, especially since he’s one of the biggest names in the cast?
Comment: I’m sure Amanda and/or Josh might’ve said something. Your question made sense, until last night when they didn’t hold back in showing everyone Josh is on the show. I’m sure that had to do with E!. “Famously Single” ended last night, which now means ABC can promote Josh on their show. I’m sure it was something to do with him appearing on two different networks the same night. So isn’t that convenient? The week after “Famously Single” ends, Josh shows up on BIP. That wasn’t a coincidence.
