“Bachelor” Jake Drops By “Ellen”


Dorky “Bachelor” Jake dropped by the “Ellen” show yesterday and showed about as much personality as a radish dipped in hummus. He didn’t reveal much dirt except that he “may” not have chosen anyone at the end, he definitely fell in love with more than one person during the show, and thinking about Rozlyn engaging in inappropriate relations with one of the staffers “makes him turn red.” Gag! For her part, Ellen seems to think Ali will be the final woman standing, Michelle should stay around for good TV, and Elizabeth — the “don’t kiss me girl,” who was kicked off last night — is manipulative. Do you guys think Ellen is right? Will Ali get a ring at the end, or do you believe Jake who keeps insinuating he’s not going to choose anyone? [via YouTube] Keep reading »

Liveblogging “The Bachelor” January 18th 2010

Tonight’s liveblog is going to be a little different, in that it won’t exactly be live. See, I’m having dinner at my mom’s and probably won’t make it home until, oh, 9 pm. I’ll start watching as soon as I get home and will probably be all caught up by the end, thanks to the magic of DVR. Y’all should still use the comments to discuss the show when it starts at 8 pm EST, and I’ll join you eventually! Keep reading »

All About Ryan Callahan, “The Bachelor” Producer Who Supposedly Hooked Up With Rozlyn

That took long enough. We finally know the identity of “The Bachelor” producer who was fired on the show for having an “inappropriate relationship” with contestant Rozlyn Papa, leading Bachelor Jake to have a moment of authentic emotion. His name is Ryan Callahan, and in addition to being a long-time vet of “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” franchises, he’s also worked on such shows as “The Cougar” and “The PussyCat Dolls Present.” And here’s the juiciest part: he’s married. More after the jump… Keep reading »

“Bachelor Pad” Will Be The Greatest Reality Show Of All Time

I’ve had this pop culture fantasy for awhile. Wouldn’t it be awesome if ABC took a bunch of rejected “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” contestants, stuck ‘em in a house together (with a hot tub, natch), turned on the cameras, and let them run wild? Oh wait. I can stop wondering. BECAUSE ABC IS ACTUALLY DOING THIS. According to the NY Daily News, ABC is planning a new reality show — called “Bachelor Pad” — with this exact premise, to air this summer. Chris Harrison has signed on, as well as a few unnamed past contestants including — and this is interesting — some past winners. Hmm … Martin Hilton, executive producer, tells The Hollywood Reporter, “All these people have been friends, been enemies, they date each other and bring all this great backstory to the show. It seemed like there was an opportunity to combine that world with a new competitive reality show.” It’s like “The Bach,” minus the cheesy faux romance and rules, with a big helping of “Real World”-style whoredom! Hot tub hookups aplenty! Cat fights! Many, many hotties! Summer cannot get here soon enough. [NY Daily News]

Quotable: “The Bachelor”‘s Rozlyn Wishes She’d “Gone For It”

“There was no making out! Unfortunately, I did not get any out of this big sex scandal that supposedly happened. If I had known that I was going to get accused of it, maybe I would have gone for it! We’re bogged down with confidentiality agreements, but I will say that it’s a TV show and there’s a lot more to that story and it has nothing to do with sex.”

— “Bachelor” contestant, Rozlyn Papa, who was kicked off the show on Monday night’s episode, discusses the experience on Mix 103.7′s Fisher in the Morning show in her hometown of Richmond, VA. She went on to add that she has a 7-year-old son and:

“That’s the one thing that upsets me about this whole scandal thing. They know I have a child; they knew I had a child going into this, and they still kind of threw me under the bus and tried to make me look bad.”

Huh, who woulda thought a reality show would edit footage and storylines to put people in an unflattering light?! Next you’ll be telling me that a raunchy dating show maybe isn’t the best place for a single parent to set a good example for her young child! [via US Weekly] Keep reading »

“Bachelor” Castoff Says Her Personal Life Isn’t Anyone’s Business


On last night’s SHOCKING episode of “The Bachelor,” something interesting happened. When it was revealed that Rozlyn had an “inappropriate” relationship with an ABC staff member, her defense was: “I don’t think my personal life is anyone’s business.” At first, I snorted. But then I realized she had a point. Even Chris Harrison, the show’s host, seemed taken aback. “The Bachelor” is about the search for love, a vital part of one’s personal life! What in the hell was Rozlyn trying to say? Keep reading »

Mystery Solved: The Bachelorette Who Got Down With A Producer Comes Forward

I knew it. I knew it. (And, uh, SPOILER ALERT!) When I heard that one of “The Bachelor” contestants was auffed from the show for getting cozy with a producer, I just had a feeling that it was Rozlyn Papa, the blonde model who wouldn’t let us forget that she’s a model. Now Rozlyn has come forward to say that, yes, she was the one who got booted from the show. But she swears it’s not what it sounds like. “I did not have a sexual relationship with a producer,” she told RadarOnline.com. She says she was technically booted for an “inappropriate relationship.” “What they mean by inappropriate relationship is not what inappropriate relationship means in the real world,” she says. “This is a TV show and it’s made for entertainment, but it is a far cry from reality. I know that things on television weren’t always as they seemed, but I had no idea the extent of the show manipulation.” Keep reading »

Which Bachelorette Shagged The Producer?

Even before last night’s season premiere of “The Bachelor,” thanks to weeks of speculation and Chris Harrison’s loose lips, we knew that one of the contestants was—surprise!—getting down and dirty with a producer, right under Jake’s nose. Since we’re already sick of the aviation puns and can’t stand the thought of having to watch the full season to find out which girl did the naughty, let’s make some guesses, shall we? We know it’s not Michelle, the girl who doesn’t blink and had a meltdown when she didn’t get one-on-one time with Jake—she crazy, and what producer, if given the smorgasbord of female options, would choose her? And it probably isn’t Corrie, the virgin. So who are our best guesses?

Quotable: “Bachelor” Host Calls Sex Scandal “Embarrassing”

Regardless of what you think of Jake the Pilot, this season’s “Bachelor,” or the 25 women he was introduced to on last night’s premiere, one thing is certain: There’s sure to be at least a little drama in the coming weeks. Yesterday, during a radio interview, “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison confirmed a rumor that one of the bachelorettes had an affair with a producer during taping last fall and that the producer was fired and the female finalist was kicked off the show.

“It was embarrassing for us … incredibly unfortunate, [and] horrible decisions were made. This is something that we took very seriously and it’s something that we couldn’t just sit by. With things in the past, we’ve been like, ‘Let’s just let the Bachelor or Bachelorette find out for themselves.’ We usually toe that line. In fairness to Jake and for the other women, [we decided to] nip this in the bud and take care of it. And that’s what we did. There’s train wrecks in this show where I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s going to be great. Let’s let them have it.’ But … I felt bad for everybody, and it was an uncomfortable deal. This was the rare time that before I had to go talk to the girl, Jake and then the women, I had lawyers, psychologists, producers, executives saying, ‘Okay, these are the words you can say.’ It was intense. It was a wild night.”

— Chris Harrison discussing what we’re sure will be — come on, let’s all say it: the most shocking rose ceremony ever! [via US Weekly] Keep reading »
