Bachelor in Paradise 3

“Reader Emails,” Nick Speaks Out, and Your Trivia Contest Results

So I got a few new details on the Reality TV Awards that I was nominated for yesterday. Still waiting to hear more confirmation on things, but the basics are that voting will open to the public on Sept. 2nd. I will be tweeting out a link to where you can vote. No idea how many times one person can vote. Then the awards show is on Wednesday, Nov. 2nd in LA. Last year I believe I read it was at the Roosevelt Hotel. They contacted me yesterday on Twitter and said they wanted me to attend. Well, you don’t need to twist my arm to get me to go to CA for a few days, so probably a good chance I’ll attend. Even if I do end up losing to some site like TMZ, or Perez Hilton, or Media Take Out, which certainly shouldn’t even be in the category for “Best Reality TV Website.” Those sites couldn’t be more NOT reality TV based. Makes sense. Andy covers nothing but reality TV stories. The other ones I haven’t heard of, but at least they have the word “reality” in their website name. That’s probably a start for who should be considered, but hey, I’m not the one making the decisions. I think it’d be great to win, but since they’re expanding the scope to include entertainment/tabloid sites like TMZ and Perez Hilton, my guess is I won’t.

A couple people sent me this, and I’ll be honest, I haven’t gotten around to watching it yet, but I heard it’s good. Nick was on the AfterBuzz podcast and talked openly about a lot of things. I’ll put it here and eventually watch it some time this weekend hopefully and give my thoughts next week:

As for last night’s BIP, I really don’t have much to say at all. The episode goes by rather quick in an hour, and not a whole hell of a lot happened since most was dedicated to Ashley crying. I mean, what more is there to say about her? That’s what she does on these shows so I’d be beating a dead horse talking about it for a page. As for “After Paradise,” still a mess with too many people, Daniel making a “First Blood” reference to Ashley being a virgin was about as tasteless as you can get and, well, that’s about it.

Get your “Dr. Reality Steve” emails in for tomorrow as we only have 1 so far. That’s not sufficient. If we don’t have at least 5 or 6 tomorrow, I’m going go scorched earth on everyone Josh Murray style. Kidding. But get some more in. The doctor needs some work to do.

Wanted to do a breakdown of the Trivia Contest answers for you to let you know which were the hardest questions and which were the easiest. So here are the questions again, but I filled in the answers, then afterwards tell you how many people got it right out of the 17 that participated that night in the contest. There were 59 people at the party, but most people that took the quiz teamed up in pairs of 2, and there were a few 4 person teams, hence the reason only 17 tests were turned in. So here you go:

1. Who was the drunk guy who got removed from the show the first night on Kaitlyn’s season? Ryan McDill. 2 people answered correctly.

2. (5) Name every location they visited in Ben’s season that wasn’t California? Vegas, Mexico City, Bahamas, Warsaw, Jamaica.

8 people got 1 out of 5 correct.
3 people got 2 out of 5.
3 people got 3 out of 5.
1 person got 4 out of 5.
Nobody got all 5 correct.
2 people couldn’t name any of the 5.

3. (3) On Brad 2.0, on the group date in the episode before hometowns, 3 girls were part of a bikini photo shoot for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Who were they? Michelle Money, Ashley Hebert, and Chantal O’Brien.

6 people got 1 out of 3 correct.
7 people got 2 out of 3.
2 people got all 3 correct.
2 person couldn’t name any of them.

4. Usually on the Bachelorette, they head to an east coast state before they start their travels overseas. What state did they travel to before heading to Europe on Andi’s season? Connecticut. Only 1 person got this answer right.

5. There is one contestant who was a first night eliminatee on the “Bachelor” then in that same year, was sent home the first night on “Bachelor Pad.” Who was it? Paige Vigil. Nobody got this answer right, thus, making it the hardest question on the test. It was the only one that no one knew.

6. True or False: On Kaitlyn’s season, they visited 3 countries during the season. False. They only went to Ireland that season, but stayed for 3 episodes. 9 people got it right.

7. What duo won season 2 of “Bachelor Pad?” Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano. 6 people got it right.

8. (2) What comedic duo appeared on the first 1-on-1 date for Ben’s season? Bonus: Who was the date with? Ice Cube & Kevin Hart. Caila went on the date.

6 people got 1 out of 2 correct.
2 people got both answers correct.
9 people got both of them wrong.

9. Which twin was Olivia on the 2-on-1 date where she got left on the island? Emily. 12 people got it right. That made it the 2nd easiest question on the test.

10. (2) There have been 3 seasons where the show went to Thailand. Obviously we know JoJo’s. Name the other two. Sean & Ashley.

5 people got 1 out of 2 correct.
9 people got both answers.
3 people got all 3 wrong.

11. True or False: I have been on a date with a former “Bachelor” contestant. False. Shockingly enough, only 7 people got this right.

12. (4) How many girls named Lauren were on Ben’s season? What were their names? 3. Lauren Bushnell, Lauren Himle, and Lauren Russell. (Although, there was a 4th Lauren I’d forgotten about, Lauren Barr (LB)).

3 people got 1 out 4 correct.
3 people got 2 out of 4.
11 people got 3 out 4. (All these people guessed “3” and named Lauren B and Lauren H. No one remembered Lauren Russell).
No one got all four correct.

13. Who was the last final 2 guy on the “Bachelorette” who was not let go before the final rose ceremony? Nick (Kaitlyn’s season) 13 people got this right, making it the easiest question on the test.

14. True or False? In the last 10 Bachelor & Bachelorette seasons, Juan Pablo is the only person to not get engaged at the end. True. Surprisingly, only 7 people got this right.

15. (7) Kaitlyn had 7 guys whose names started with J. Name as many as you can. Jared, JJ, Jonathan, Josh (the male stripper), Joshua, Joe, Justin.

2 people got 1 out of 7 correct.
4 people got 2 out of 7.
2 people got 3 out of 7.
6 people got 4 out of 7.
2 people got 5 out 7.
1 person got 6 out 7.
No one got all 7 correct.
No one got 0 correct.

So there you go, a little fun game to play with your friends. Next year, depending on how many people come to the party, I’m going to make the test even more tricky. And oh yeah, here was me reading the answers to the test at the party in case you missed my post on it last week.

    Whats the point of saying you will recap BIP if all you do is just bitch about it for two sentences? Lame.

    Btw isnt funny that Britt, the one accused to be fake and a wanna be actress is actually the most normal, down to earth post show? Hanging w. her boyfriend, still promoting her charities etc. While everyone else on the show, the girls that “totally” wanted to move to Iowa, are seeking fame.

    And its not the edit that makes Nick likable this time around, its the set up. The guys and girls all seem to like him outside the show and thus the dynamic is different in the house. He’s also a bit more grownup and seems less nervous/weird in front of the cameras. Even Jubilee seemed more relaxed this time around. Practice makes perfect! 🙂

    There are very fine lines between sleep, coma, and death. My wife died 10 years ago due to mixing methadone and over-the-counter cough syrup. She fell asleep, lapsed into a coma, and died when her breathing shut down. Alcoholic blackouts are between sleep and coma, but Evan’s inability to respond was leaning towards coma to me. It’s not that you can’t come back from certain degrees of coma, but there’s also the possibility that you might not. Never mix pain medications with alcohol. Never.

    Exactly..Steve does that carp a lot. He says he will recap it but then just says there’s nothing to say. He could have talked about Carly or Jen and Nick.

    It is time to blow up BIP and start over. It is all about coupling up early and coasting until the end. I want drunkenness, sluttiness, brawls, etc. Where is the outrageous behavior, where are the boobs flying freely?

    Highlight of last noght was the crappy medic who could not insert an IV properly into Evan. So that shows how crappy this show has become. I still have no f-ing idea what hell is going on with Carly/Evan. Evan must be the most sober completely drunk person I have ever seen. He went from supposedly coma into talking without a hint of a slur? WTF is really going on? Just a complete bogus story from the producers?

    BIP is unwatchable. I watched part of one episode against my will, but that was all I needed to skip the rest. There was really no point.

    I think people always over-sold his role as a villain to begin with. I liked him in Andi’s season, and then instantly hated him after following him on Instagram. He’s always been annoying and into himself, but I don’t see him too differently on this show than the others.

    Also, while we are complaining, I get annoyed when RS won’t give his opinions on people, or will over-anaylze some things and then tell his readers that they’re over-thinking or that their question isn’t worth answering. If a question concerning your knowledge or opinion won’t be revealing your sources, then why wouldn’t you share that with your readers, who obviously really want to know? It’s frustrating that he doesn’t seem to appreciate his readers enough to answer certain things, though we are constantly praising him.

    The producers may as well pick the dates from day 1 at this point, and not let the contestants. Early relationships don’t really make for interesting tv whatsoever. Also, what does ANYBODY find appealing about Carly that she keeps getting asked back? The best thing about Carly was Jade.

    Purplerayne, i agree about Britt. People who know Britt also say she’s not acting – she really is just the exuberant way she came across on TV. But as we can see in other current events, sometimes no matter how many good deeds you do for others, perception can Trump reality….

    Doesn’t bother me that Steve doesn’t take the time to recap. His forte is spoiling, not recapping. There are some very hilarious recaps out there these days. Written by some really talented writers who, oddly, are able to channel their talents into recapping these ridiculous shows. Sharleen Joynt of Flare and All the Pretty Pandas is one, Lincee of I Hate Green Beans, Zack of Lost Angeles Bearfighting and Bachcaps are my favorites. They don’t spoil, only recap, so not competition for Steve.

    Cjscjs711- I wouldnt mind him not recapping IF he didnt advertise that he was writing a recap LOL 🙂

    You do know that Sharleen Joynt is Sharleen from Juan Pablo’s season, yes?
