I don’t know if you had previously mentioned the Bachelors vs. Bachelorettes episode of Celebrity Family Feud. I want to throw out a plug for it if you haven’t watched, as history was made. Much like last year, they dumbed down the Fast Money round so that it is nearly impossible to not get to 200 points and win the money for your charity. Unless you are Ashley I and Andi, who became the first contestants in the history of the show (at least that I have seen) to not win the Fast Money round. Steve Harvey was in shock. It was amazing.
Comment: I watched it. And yes, that was hilarious. Not only that, but did you see what the last question was for the Fast Money Round? Name a color of apple? Well, there’s really only two answers to that question: Red and Green. Green I think drew 34 points and red was 63. So that was 97 pts in 2 questions they were essentially “guaranteed” to get, and they still couldn’t pull out 103 pts for the other 8 questions. Andi and Ashley had three zeros between them I believe. That was funny.
Congrats on another successfully spoiled season, I never doubted you for a moment, although I hate that you were right because Aaron Rodger’s brother is such a scumbag, no talent hack, and JoJo deserves better. Anyways, before the season started Josh Murray, Nick Viall, & Juan Pablo were all rumored to have wanted to be on JoJo’s season. Had all three been added to the cast, who do you think would have lasted the furthest, and what would the final four have looked like, in your esteemed opinion?
Comment: Josh. Former athletes. That’s JoJo’s game.
What are your thoughts on Jordan moving to your city, Dallas to be with JoJo?
Comment: I can’t wait to greet them with one giant hug.
Love your site!
Do you think Hope, Robbys ex, will go on the Bachelor? She is beautiful and in Cali visiting Grants ex, Jen. Could she be auditioning? I don’t think so.
Also, are Andi Dorfman and Nikki (Juan Pablos’s ex) not friends anymore? I follow them on Instagram and they are never together anymore.
Thank in advance.
Comment: I don’t think so.
Hey Steve, congrats on another perfect spoiler season 🙂
When Robby got out of the limo it was very bright outside, same as when JoJo got dumped by Ben. I know that once the lead rejects one person it’s a couple hours before the winner arrives. If I were a contestant, I would know that I lost if the sun hasn’t started to set yet, so I wonder if someone like Robby/Jojo knew they were going to be dumped before they actually did. Seems like the element of surprise is gone because anyone who’s paid close attention to the show before should know this. If they don’t know this by now, it’s on them.
OK, when JoJo told Robby that she always wanted it to be him, blah blah blah did the producers tell her to say that? Clearly it was always Jordan so this would make sense since the show tried to fool viewers into thinking she wouldn’t pick Jordan cause of the not asking her parents for her hand in marriage fiasco. I’m sure they did.
Do you have any idea if Jordan is still active on Raya? I wonder if JoJo bought his lie or not… I have no idea if he is or not. After that whole cover up saying he wasn’t, it’d be pretty stupid if he STILL hadn’t deleted his account. Because it was definitely open when he got back. And he definitely used it.
Lastly, will you be watching Olympics?
Comment: Here and there. I just can’t get excited for it anymore. It’s all corrupt.
I love that you have an Oilers jersey on your coffee table. Made me smile being from Edmonton and a big fan!
Comment: Not for me. My nephew is 9 years old and a huge hockey fan. So he has jerseys of basically all his favorite/best players. That’s his Connor McDavid jersey.
I understand that people want to believe in the fairy tale of love that is produced for the audience of the Bachelorette. I also understand how people would be upset when you tell them the relationship is rocky and isn’t going to last. Many project that if this fairy tale relationship is possible, it could happen to them. So you are kind of crushing their dreams. Reality is sometimes hard to swallow. I’m a softy too, I wish it were true. But I’m also a pragmatist.
In JoJo and Jordan’s appearances in ATFR and subsequent PR shows, I thought it was pretty obvious they aren’t in post-fairy tale bliss. There were a number of cracks in the veneer that gave away the state of their relationship. Both being media-savvy, the inability to keep these suppressed is a pretty strong indicator of how bad it is.
The first clue was during ATFR when JoJo shushed Jordan while he was speaking. Not only is this rude, I only do this to someone if I’m really irritated with them. On Jimmy Kimmel they bickered about picking up his bed and how she preferred her bed. “Remember, happy wife happy life” she looked dead in his eyes and emphasized to Jordan. They talked about all of the things they argued about while sequestered in the “safe houses” during the Bachelorette airings. They performed pretty poorly in the game of how well they know each other. When talking about looking for a new house, Jordan complained about not being able to see the house they purchased in person before she bought it, and how the only glimpses he had of the options she gave him was tiny pictures on his phone.
On Live with Kelly, Jordan threw JoJo under the bus by saying he wanted to watch Peaky Blinders but she said “No” and he mimicked her ignoring him and texting. They also played a “Nearlywed Game”. Jordan’s answer for the last thing they argued about was “his stubbornness”. That does not bode well.
There was so much bickering and testimony of bickering, throwing each other under the bus on national TV, it’s not indicative of a newly engaged couple madly in love. They always say at the beginning of a relationship you are on your best behavior. Is this their best behavior towards one another in public on a national stage? For me, sadly, all signs point to a crumbling relationship. JoJo seems like a very kind-hearted girl, and I was hoping it would work out for her. Maybe they thrive on being “the Bickersons” and she’s very happy. I hope so.
Comment: Only a matter of time.
Dear Reality Steve,
Who pays for the engagement ring on the bachlorette? Is it Neil Lane or ABC? Also do they give the contestants any kind of budget?
Comment: Neil Lane makes it and gives it to the show to use in return for free publicity.
Your site is pretty awesome. I love reading all the inside scoop and your insight. It makes everything much more enjoyable!
You’ve probably mentioned this before, but have you seen or heard of the show “Coupled”? It seems to be a bit like the new “Bachelor in Paradise.” Definitely has its rough spots but I do love the fact that the cast is somewhat diverse with latinas, asians, caucasians, and african american contestants as well. Obviously it’s not any realer than the Bachelor/ette, but I find that for me, as the Bachelor/ette gets more ludicrous and follows the same routine every season, Coupled seems to be a better alternative, if only because it’s different in concept.
Anyway, the finale airs today, and I’m guessing it will probably be canceled, but I just wanted to ask in case you happened to have any input.
Comment: I watched the first episode and was bored. Haven’t watched since. It didn’t help that it was on the same night as the “Bachelorette” and “UnREAL.” Just didn’t have time for it, and it didn’t interest me enough to record it and watch later in the week.
Great job on another successfully spoiled season!!
I know none of this matters, but has anyone else commented on Robby’s exit being so anticlimactic?? It felt like they were both acting, and Robby was already aware he was being let go. He didn’t show any emotion, wiped away “tears” that weren’t there, and it was just overall so unbelievable.
When Chase and Luke were let go, way more heart strings were pulled. With the way Robby was with her family, and how expressive he was all season with her, I expected way more of a performance than what we got.
I miss the Nick Viall seasons 😉
Anyways congrats again and thanks for all of the entertainment!
Comment: Probably because I think no one cared about Robby.
Love your site and have been a huge fan for years. I wanted to ask you if you have ever predicted that a couple would make it, and been right? I think you usually predict that they won’t last, and most of the the time you are 100% right. But, we have had a few success stories; did you ever think that was a likely outcome with those couples, i.e. Ashley and JP, Sean and Catherine, Des and Chris?
Thanks and keep up with good work!
Comment: I thought Ashley and JP had a chance. Definitely didn’t think Sean & Catherine or Des & Chris would get married, that’s for sure.
Congrats on a successful season. These bachelorette seasons are tricky, but you prevailed! Do you ever do a happy dance on finale night? Haha.
Chad sh***ing his shorts wasn’t in your spoilers was it? OMG. The best surprises come to those who wait. Something tells me that scene was heavily edited.
I’m so glad that we will no longer have his arrogant mug on our tvs after next week. I can dismiss violent, drunk, aggressive and asshole behaviour, but I cannot stand those who are so unaware of themself to the point of delusion. I don’t get why people found him entertaining. In countries all around the world we are seeing the results of angry, violent young men. Prisons are filled with mal-adjusted individuals. Not to mention those committing domestic violence. And people see that as entertainment? Hell, if Chad looked like Evan, how much do you want to bet that it wouldn’t have been labelled entertaining? Serial killers can look like Chad Johnson and Josh Murray. Just saying. But hey, it’s the show’s fault. Don’t ever blame Chad for how he behaves. It’s everyone else around him. Never his fault. I mean, if people can’t take jokes about him calling them the c word then that’s on them, right? Just ask him.
Lace, keep your hands to yourself. It’s not cute to be slapping anyone.
I’m like a disease Daniel. Where does this douchelicker get off being so judgemental about women’s looks? Has he not looked in a mirror? You can keep him, America.
Are we sure that Jordan isn’t the gay one in the Rodgers family? The way he carries himself, the way he walks, he’s pinging hard. Gay celebs are usually the ones you hear multiple cheating stories about. Hmmm.
Jordan is not a good liar, his facial tics, licking his lips and looking away were dead giveaways. Hilarious to watch. Those icy stares of death towards Harrison were TV Gold too! Jojo seems like such a sweet person, she deserves a faithful, honorable guy. I hope she finds one, one day.
Comment: She’ll eventually learn. Just a matter of time.
As always, great season of spoiling!
I was listening to the interview you did with the Here to Make Friends podcast and you gave spoiler-free characterizations of the three engaged couples. Since here we don’t care about spoilers, could you match up your descriptions of them with the different couples?
“eh, they probably deserve each other”
“one you never saw coming”
Do you think these are all Lacy and Marcus or do we have any Jade and Tanner’s on this season?
Comment: Obvious – Amanda and Josh.
Probably deserve each other (because they’re both crazy) – Grand and Lace.
Never saw coming – Evan & Carly.
