It’s the best time of the year. No, not Paradise. No, not the “Bachelor” announcement coming soon. I’m talking about football season. I’m sure a lot of you college fans are fired up for the first weekend of a pretty full schedule of games, as am I. As much as I loved Week 0 for how profitable it was, this weekend is the real first weekend of college football. Which also means that next week is my annual guys trip to Vegas for first NFL weekend. If I’m doing my math correctly, it’s now 22 of the last 24 years we’ve done it. It was my one big trip every year that I most looked forward to back in the late 90s and early 2000’s. But I was also fresh out of college, barely making any money, and I was just happy to go anywhere. Things have changed in over 20 years, so this still has become a fun trip for me, but since I added first weekend of March Madness 3 years ago to the schedule, that one might top it. Regardless, super excited for next weekend and I just wish it’d get here. Only 9 more days. I’m impatient. I want it to be only 9 more hours.

Also, most of you are either having your fantasy football drafts this week, or already had them this past weekend. You won’t be hearing much about mine since, well, I doubt any of you care. Just know I’m the defending champion in my league and I never made one trade or had one free agent pick up last year. And I was the 6th seed going into the playoffs. Won 3 weeks in a row, and in the championship game, I had to start Josh F***ing Allen and he ended up going off and basically was the reason I won. Which should tell you something about how much ridiculous luck there is in fantasy football. I was like 7-6 in the regular season, played the first place 13-1 team in the second round of the playoffs, and I beat him easily because his players had an off week. You can have the greatest fantasy team ever, but on any given week, a few can have an off game and you have zero control. So there. That’s my fantasy football lesson for you. I play every year, and I give about 1/100th of the effort towards it than I should.

As I mentioned last week, today they will be taping the BIP reunion, which will air I’m assuming on Sept. 10th. Hopefully I’ll have some info this week on what happened at the taping, and if/when I get it, I’ll let you know. In terms of the couples, I’ve told you over the last few weeks, everything has pretty much stayed the same. All 3 engaged couples are still engaged. Dean and Caelynn are still together and dating, or whatever you want to call it. JPJ and Tayshia are seeing each other. And Connor and Whitney are seeing each other. Whitney actually took Connor to Mexico as her date for Rachel’s wedding this past weekend. Which, speaking of, can someone tell me where Rachel and Bryan are registered so I can get them a gift? The thing everyone keeps sending me is a link to where they teamed up with the and said some of the things they wanted, BUT, I have no idea where to send it, nor do I know if it’s already been bought for them, since that article is not a link to any registry. I always say any final couple from this franchise that gets married I will give a gift to, but everyone I’ve done so far were all registered and it was easy to click and purchase. I can’t find Rachel and Bryan’s link anywhere, so any help would be appreciated.

I think we can expect a Blake/Caelynn talk at this reunion tomorrow. They will definitely focus some time on that since it took up the first few episodes of the season. Maybe Kristina will even go at Caelynn since she clearly doesn’t like her as evidenced by her tweets when those first few episodes were airing. I don’t know what other major drama there could be. I highly doubt they’d bring Christian on the show considering he’s doing interviews now saying he’ll fight Jordan when he sees him. Maybe Clay and Nicole have it out a bit over how their relationship ended. But I expect the major stuff to surround Blake and everything that went down at Stagecoach and what he did post-show airing Caelynn’s texts. I know she’s not happy, but maybe she just wants to move on with Dean and doesn’t want to drag all that up again. We’ll see and I’ll keep you updated on what I hear.

And finally, we’ve seen this numerous times in the past on the “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette,” but another editing screw up happened during the rose ceremony last night. What we saw was Chris giving Katie the last rose of the night over Jen. Well, that was completely shown out of order since after Blake gave Kristina his rose, you can clearly see Katie had already had hers, so no, she didn’t get the final rose of the night:

It’s always funny to see editing botch something so “serious” as this. Like, they build all this tension at the rose ceremony of who Chris is gonna give his rose to, when in reality, it wasn’t even tense out there and he wasn’t saved for last. Womp wooooomp.

    Very disappointed in Peter for Bachelor, but then I would have been equally disappointed in Derek or Mike. Black or white, they are all pretty boring. Peter was best described by Hannah when she talked about him reminding her of playing with dolls as a child and the guy she thought she wanted at that age: a total Ken doll. Will I still watch? Absolutely. The only one I would have genuinely enjoyed was Tyler, and we’ve known that wasn’t happening since After the Final Rose.

    I’m with you justsaying. Peter is just too vanilla for my taste. And it bugs me that he ditched a woman he professed his love to in order to be cast on the Bachelorette. I don’t buy his sincerity. But my hopes for Tyler being named were sunk when he started dating Gigi Hadid…but can’t say as I blame him for his choice. Who would want to trade the new exciting lifestyle he’s waltzed into for a gig being the Bachelor, filled with nonsense and drama, and possibly end up like Hannah – alone. He’s living the good life and we’re stuck with Plain Peter. Ugh

    I actually found Peter quite charming. He was totally wrong in how he treated his last girlfriend though it was not as bad as Jed.

    In light of what has happened this season with Tyler ending up dating a super model after the show ends airing, it sure seems like most of the guys trying out for Bachelor in the future are going to have that in the back of their mind. If they go on the Bachelorette, say all the right things, get their heart broken, then they are setting the stage to meet and date beautiful, famous women. So, not that there are many men actually looking for love on the show, now there will be even less on there “for the right reason”. They can change the name of the show to Who Wants to Date a Model.

    I have another thing bugging me. There are so many people posting nasty things about Hannah B because they think she’s either faking it when she seems happy in her Instagram posts, or they think she’s being a drama queen by posting things about how she’s struggling post show with her emotions. No matter what she does, she is criticized. Then, on the other hand, Gigi Hadid just ended a 3 year relationship and has jumped into this relationship with Tyler and it’s being reported that she’s happy again because her former relationship wasn’t good for her. Why aren’t people criticizing her for not taking the time to work on herself before jumping into another relationship?? I don’t care what either of the two women do with their lives, but is it really necessary for people to post hateful comments about someone that has come out of reality TV? Maybe women are just jealous of Hannah’s new life and opportunities, but why not get on board with the “lifting each other up” program instead of spewing so much hate!

    I, too, do not get all the hate people are spewing these days. Like Steve is constantly pointing out, this is a reality TV show we’re talking about, yet viewers act like what the “stars” do is their personal business. And are people forgetting that Hannah is a 24 year-old woman? I think she’s very mature for her age and throughout her season illustrated that. As for the future of bachelor contestants, social media has changed the landscape completely. Just look at the hot mess that BIP is this summer. Everyone going in either knew their fellow castmates already, or slept with them. It’s no longer organic. I watched a talk show online yesterday where they were discussing the new phenomenon of famous stars going after Bachelor/ette contestants, ala Gigi Hadid and Demi Lovato. A Lot of celebs watch/follow the Bachelor shows and now they’re pursuing the cast-offs. It is what it is…not much any of us can do to change where modern technology takes us. But, as Chris Harrison is quick to point out, the Bachelor shows seem to be a barometer for what’s going in in the world of millenials who are up on the latest trends in technology and social media.

    You didn’t mention Hannah G. and Dylan being a couple in this article. I thought they were together. Did they break up?
