In the day and a half since “The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose,” Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum have been on a media blitz, sitting down with loads of interviewers to talk about their relationship. And so, we have heard them calling each other ‘babe’ all over town. And I gotta say—these two are pretty darn adorable together.
After the jump, the choicest quotes from the past 48 hours. Keep reading »
Last night’s finale of “The Bachelorette” was epic—all in all, I watched five hours of Ashley Hebert and her dudes between the “Men Tell All” special (which I forgot to watch Sunday night), the finale proper, and the “After the Final Rose” wrap-up. And I’m happy to report that these concluding hours were … surprisingly satisfying after a season filled with eye-roll inspiration!
So who did Ashley walk away from Fiji with? After the jump, the good, bad, and WTF moments from last night. And big duh—SPOILER ALERT. Keep reading »
Considering that Ashley Hebert‘s season of “The Bachelorette” has been a mess so far, what with a sociopath derailing the proceedings for weeks, I’m pretty impressed by Ashley’s final three guys. Even more surprising, in last night’s episode, Ashley cut it down to two—and they are exactly the pair I’ve found most appealing throughout this process. Who am I talking about? Find out after the jump, as I go through the good, bad, and puzzling moments of last night’s episode. And if you haven’t watched yet, SPOILER ALERT. Keep reading »
I have a random pet peeve when it comes to reality TV—when an element of a show becomes so routine that the contestants know it’s coming and start referring to it by a single word. (See: “makeovers” on “America’s Next Top Model” and “restaurant wars” on “Top Chef.”) For weeks, we’ve been hearing about “hometowns” on “The Bachelorette.” For those not in the know, that’s when the title lady/guy has whittled the field down to their final four, and they travel to each contestant’s home to see what their life is like and meet their family. This week, Ashley Hebert‘s long-awaited hometowns finally happened.
After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF of last night’s episode. Spoilers ahead! Keep reading »
Allow me to describe last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette” in one word: CRINGE. Now, this is nothing new, as “The Bachelorette” is always chock full of cringe-worthy moments. But last night’s episode took the cringe to whole new levels of secondhand shame. From the most psychotic date in all of “Bachelorette/Bachelorette” history to the epic diss handed down to one of the bachelors — spoilers ahead! — here are the good, bad and WTF moments from last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” as Ashley narrowed down the field from six to four.

Who knew “The Bachelorette” could teach us such important lessons about grammar? (If you haven’t watched yet, SPOILER ALERT.) The drama of this week’s episode all stemmed from that moment when Bentley Williams told Ashley Hebert that he’d like to leave the show with a “dot, dot, dot.” Well, this week, Ashley finally got her period. (As in the end of the sentence, not her monthly flow.) But not after losing one of her prime contenders and pissing off, oh, almost all of the guys. After the jump, the good, bad, and the WTF of last night’s episode.
