Another season of “Bachelor in Paradise” is among us. With that brings us fun, excitement, drama, a lot of tears and…oh yeah, the inevitable “Hey, do you have any spoilers for BIP this year” emails and tweets that I got last night. So even though they’ve been up a month and I’ve linked to them numerous times since then, hey, here you go. Your episode-by-episode spoilers for this season of “Bachelor in Paradise,” which you can also find by going to the navigation bar up top, going to “TV Shows,” then “Bachelor in Paradise 4”, etc. In the beginning of doing BIP spoilers, I used to get info on what they actually did on the date, but since the show doesn’t care to ever show us more than 5 minutes, I figured why bother? Just the basics of who went out with who should be good enough now. And with filming this season being shorter than previous ones, I expected even less interesting and creative dates and, well, yep. That’s exactly what we got last night. Hooray production! Mailing it in on vacation!
Recording Episode #3 of the “He Said, She Said” podcast this week with Sharleen Joynt. So if you still have a relationship/marriage/sex/dating question and you want on the show, it’s not too late. Contact me or Sharleen, and as long as you have Skype and availability at night this week, we can get it done. Episode #3 will post next Thursday. The podcast guest this week is none other than Lace Morris. She certainly knows what it’s like to go through the “Bachelor in Paradise” bubble as she was engaged for a hot minute from it. Ok, 5 months, but who’s counting? Look for that on Thursday. I’m pretty excited about next week’s guest as well but I don’t want to jinx anything.
Really no easy transition into this story. I’m sure a lot of you have heard by now what happened to Vienna. If you haven’t, she announced on Sunday in a Facebook post that she had miscarried her twins. Horrible tragedy and there’s really nothing else you can say to something like that other than thoughts and prayers are with her as she goes through this difficult time. I can’t imagine what she’s going through right now.
Episode #2 of Jimmy Kimmel’s “Baby Bachelor in Paradise” ran last night during his show. Here it is in case you missed it:
We got a little bit of clarity of how the rest of “Bachelor in Paradise” will play out as two executives from the show spoke out to give interviews. So it does look like it will air every Monday and Tuesday from now until Sept. 12th. There will be no “After Paradise,” and they fully expect to come back next season. Two good interviews posted yesterday. First was with Executive Producer Martin Hilton, who seemed to clarify they never thought there was any wrongdoing in the DeMario/Corinne situation. They still needed to take the correct measures to be safe. But you read that and you realize, this ended up being a much bigger deal than they ever thought it was.
Also Robert Mills, a guy you’ve heard me talk a lot about in this column, who is the head of all Alternative Programming for ABC, did a pretty in depth interviewing on all things “Bachelor/ette/Paradise” related that you should read . Very transparent about certain things regarding the franchise, where it’s headed, and a little glimpse into what they’re thinking for “Winter Games” (Other “Bachelor” countries contestants? Great).
And finally the poll question for today surrounds the DeMario/Corinne footage, or lack thereof, from last night:

I’ve heard the comment from a woman before (obviously not directed at me) that they stopped dating someone because the guy was “prettier than me”. What that essentially means is the guy is not anything close to a normal and “real” guy. We don’t have to be pigs necessarily, we should shower, put on clean clothes and make and effort to look decent for our women. But if a guy is staring at himself in the mirror for more than a minute and playing with his hair, there might be a problem. When a guy has a full on female hairstyle (was that a modified Bee-Hive?) and wears makeup, that just takes it to a completely unacceptable level. The abs are fine. Nothing wrong with working out and looking buff (I can remember having a six-pack…so… long… ago). But it’s really feminine when you start obsessing with your hair, face, tan, etc. So Robby, wow. Obviously he’s way more into himself than he could ever be in to a woman…. or a man. Or maybe not. If there is a 0-100 manly scale, Robby is a zero. Straight on. Normally you have to be gay to be that feminine. Is that the deal? Or is it just straight out narcissism? He’s kind of out on his own island, and I guess he likes it just fine.

I had no issue when single dating really good looking guys. The issue is when the guy is into himself more than he is into you. Also, guys think girls are just into the physical like most guys, when that is not true at all. Certainly looks catch your eye, but personality is way, way more important. I never was attracted to the over smooth, buffed, extremely muscled guys either. Raven was too funny after their date and I was so happy that she wasn’t taken in by him.
I get it that younger guys are more metro males than older dudes for the most part. Have no issue with, as Rob stated above, a guy being clean, groomed, etc. and even appreciate some manscaping. But, Robby’s hair is just way, way too much. Didn’t notice the eye liner, but if true, too funny.
One thing about the girls – lose the false eye lashes or at least pick semi natural ones and not ones that look like you have an insect on your eyelid. Those false eyelashes are hysterical.

Another point – thought is was funny how Corrine stated at the beginning she wasn’t going to throw herself at the first guy who showed an interest, then did just that.
The girl needs some mental health counseling, because her self-esteem must be lacking to act the way she acts. To take sexual acts and public nudity with relative strangers so causally tells me she is desperate for attention and any attention is better than none in her mind. It is sad really.

From the name of Jorge’s new business (something like “Jorge’s Tour-ges” (or something like that, that rhymes), it sounds like he is going to be conducting tours of some sort.

For the first time, I did not watch BiP, and don;t plan to this summer. I’ll just come read the recaps. The preview was too much for me, and it seemed this year intentionally passed the good fun/good taste threshold. This is the type of fake reality TV I pass on. Which means pretty much all of it, save the Bach/ette now. No other reality TV for me.
So Steve be sure to make the write ups solid. I;m counting on your to mock those insufferable, narcissistic losers as much as you can. They all deserve it.

Your last poll really needs a “no one” option. This cast is awful ????

Hi. I don’t care for the slut shaming. Women can act anyway they want, and quite frankly it is not up to you to decide what is appropriate. Corinne is not seeking attention by “partaking in sexual acts.” She was violated. I don’t care what anybody else says because the only person who knows how Corinne felt is Corinne. I am sick of people like you and this cast and crew acting like you have some sort of say in what happened. There were three parties involved (Corinne, Demario, and production) and only two that can speak on it (Corinne and Demario). The fact of the matter is that both Corinne and Demario were drinking, and production should have done something. I get that understanding sexual assault can become tricky when alcohol is involved, but production is responsible for preventing assault, plain and simple. Now I know I don’t know all of the details, but neither do you. And something we do know since Corinne has said it is that she felt violated. I stand by all women that make these claims. People are so quick to accuse sexual assault survivors of lying, when in reality sexual assault is lied about just as much as any other crime. I also just want to say that because I don’t know the whole story and Corinne has not named who she felt violated by (production or Demario), I am not blaming Demario. When more news comes out that may change, but production is at fault. As for how Corinne behaved prior to the assault, that’s up to her not you. Maybe you wouldn’t behave that way and I probably wouldn’t have either, but if that’s what empowers her then that’s what empowers her. Her “need for attention” is not what is sad. What is sad is your cruelty in shaming women for behaving differently than you.

limo – Nobody is “slut shaming” Corinne. As a woman and SA survivor myself I would never do that. Corinne was NOT violated, she has stated as much. She and Demario are cool, the investigation found no wrong doing on anyone’s part, theirs or productions, and it was established that they were not “that” drunk. The incident happened not long after the clip where we see them enter the pool. They were both cognizant of what was going on, the cameras, and who was watching.
Whether it is a man or a woman, when someone goes to the lengths Corrine does to get attention and be the center of attention, it normally points to someone with low self-esteem. She pulls the antics she does to get attention. She got naked in a pool within a couple of hours after arriving, with a guy she’s never met, knowing camera were filming and others were watching and performed a sex act. That is someone who craves attention, whether positive or not. BTW this assessment includes Demario, but since his douche bagginess had already been established, I didn’t originally include him.
And, you’re right what Corrine does is up to her not me, but I do believe I have a right to an opinion, which I posted on a “Opinion Board”.

Upon reading all these funny comments, the sad reality for me is Robbie reminds me so much of my 19 year old son–he spends so much time on his hair and skin–it takes him an hour and a half to shower and get ready to go anywhere!!! So different from what I am used to…
