Hooray! Tonight is my favorite episode of every “Bachelor” season — “The Women Tell All” aka “The Women Confront Each Other Over The Ways They Feel They Were Insulted”! I am mostly excited to see how Courtney handles what is sure to be an onslaught of hate from her fellow bachelorettes — after all, she basically trash talked them all season. The most interesting thing to me about this preview, however, is when rejected bachelorette Jamie tells Ben she’s still interested in him and that he should get in touch if things don’t work out with his eventual pick; Ben’s energy and body language suggest that things have already gone south with his “fiancee.” Hmm…
Well what do we have here? Courtney Robertson from “The Bachelor” was spotted trying on wedding dresses in Los Angeles yesterday. Of course, she is a model, so this theoretically could be for a photo shoot. Still most of you think Courtney is Ben’s final pick. On this week’s episode, Courtney tried to rehabilitate her bad-girl image, apologizing to Ben for the way she treated the other women on the show. So maybe it worked. See more photos of Courtney’s visit to the Markzunino bridal boutique, and weigh in in the comments: do you think Ben picks her? And do you think she’s right for him? Read more…
When it comes to reality TV competition shows, I tend to root for the evil genius. That’s why I am basically the only person watching this season of “The Bachelor” that is firmly on Team Courtney. Courtney Robertson has been unflinchingly cunning in her efforts to win dopey Ben Flajnik’s heart and unlike “unlikable” contestants in the past, who are given the boot once their “true colors” are revealed, I think she has the potential to go all the way. And on Monday’s episode, Courtney really pulled out all the stops, arranging a fake wedding ceremony for her and Ben as a way of telling him her true feelings. Or were they Carrie Bradshaw‘s true feelings? Watch the video to see what I mean.
As Amelia said when she looked at this picture of actor Michael Cera and “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik at a Sundance Film Festival party, “There are a lot of things about this that make me uncomfie.” I couldn’t agree more. I had a visceral feeling of discomfort the moment I saw it. I have so many questions. First: Why was Ben invited to Sundance? Please don’t tell me he’s trying to be an actor now. Continuing on: What’s up with Michael’s mustache? His hat? Why is he holding Ben in such a lascivious fashion? Did they know each other before this moment? Or is Michael just trying to be ironic? Why is Ben so boring? OK. Your turn! [Michael Cera looks like my ex-boyfriend in that photo. Oof. -- Editor] [Pop Sugar]
It’s time for Bachelor Ben’s second week of hot dates, sloppy makeout sessions, and sobbing psychopaths — and I will be there as your guide, liveblogging all of the craziness. Check back to this post at 8 p.m. EST or follow along on Twitter at @friskyliveblog. I cannot wait to see what Blogger Jenna does this week… Keep reading »
Last night on the premiere of the new season of The Bachelor, the world got to meet a whole new cast of women out to win bachelor Ben Flajnik‘s affections. Most of them were the predictably forgettable tanned dental hygienists and account managers of seasons gone by. But producers outdid themselves by casting the show’s first blogger contestant.
Jenna Burke describes herself as a freelance writer, but ABC simply lists her occupation as “Blogger.” We suspect that means she is “unemployed,” but she is certainly a reality TV force to be reckoned with. Here’s what we learned about Jenna last night. Keep reading »
