The Slut-Shaming “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Bristowe Endured Is What Women Online Deal With Every Day

As per usual, the penultimate episode of this season of “The Bachelorette,” which aired last night, had Kaitlyn Bristowe coming face-to-face with the suitors she sent packing over the course of the season. But it also had her sitting across from host Chris Harrison as he read a series of hateful, slut-shaming tweets (watch above) that had…

Don’t Hold Your Breath For A Gay Or Lesbian On “The Bachelor,” Says Chris Harrison

After 27 seasons of almost painful heterosexuality, we were not optimistic that either “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” would introduce a gay or lesbian contestant. I mean, it took them this long to finally have a Latino “Bachelor.” And in an interview this weekend with The New York Times Magazine, longtime host Chris Harrison pretty much…

Hi everyone it’s Sarah, not Amelia, writing “The Bachelor” recap. It is both an honor and quite a bit of pressure given that last night was the dramatic season finale.

And The Most Romantic Part Of “The Bachelor” Finale Was….

But let’s get real…probably the most romantic part of the entire “Bachelor” brou-ha-ha was during the “After the Rose” follow up show (btw, it’s federally mandated that you have to passionately whisper the phrase “after the rose.”) Bachelor…

Chris Harrison Splits From Wife, Should Totally Be The Next “Bachelor”

Say it isn’t so! Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor”‘s host and resident wise man, has split from his wife of 18 years, Gwen. As a diehard Bach fan, I’ve always felt affectionately about ol’ Harrison, and have been impressed with his stamina for this whole charade, especially since he clearly knew what it took to make…

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The Milquetoast Hosts Of Reality TV

Sure, Jeff Probst has dimples the size of the Grand Canyon, but his function on “Survivor” is pretty much only to deliver the line, “The tribe has spoken.” Oh, and to snuff out that flame. Like Chris Harrison on “The Bachelor” and Ryan Seacrest on “American Idol,” he mainly blends into the scenery of the…

“Bachelorette” Villain Alert: Bentley Sounds Like A Sociopath, Chris Harrison Defends Casting Him

This season on “The Bachelorette,” there is a guy who makes Wes Hayden—the one who was so, so proud of himself for making it pretty far with Jillian Harris when he actually had a girlfriend—look like a nice guy. Bentley Williams is a divorced businessman from Salt Lake City with a daughter, and…

Chris Harrison Defends His Rose Counting On “The Bachelor”

“You realize how little I do on this show. So, please, please don’t take away the one thing I do. … I wanted to get rid of that very early on. Eight years ago, I’m like, ‘This is ridiculous.’ It’s not about the math. It’s not saying, ‘Ellen, there’s a coffee cup between us.’ You…

Quotable: “Bachelor” Host Chris Harrison Calls Rozlyn “Desperate”

If you watched “The Bachelor” special last night, “The Women Tell All,” you definitely saw former contestant Rozlyn Papa — the one who got kicked off for having an “inappropriate relationship” with a producer — come on and attack host Chris Harrison. In fact, she even went so far as to imply that he’…
