Liveblogging “The Bachelor” Premiere January 4th 2010

I am kind of kicking myself for agreeing to liveblog this season of “The Bachelor” since it’s all Pilot Jake, all the time, but then I thought about how much fun we had during the Papa Bach season despite his general suckage and I have decided to embrace my task. SO, join me tonight at 8 pm, as I embark upon another season of ABC’s wacktastic reality dating show. Everyone pray for more than a few bunny boilers! Keep reading »

Meet Pilot Jake’s Bachelorettes!

Tonight, “The Bachelor”‘s 14th season premieres — it’s, gag, called “The Wings Of Love” — and I, against my better judgment, will be liveblogging the episode each week. I am hoping and praying that if our Bachelor, Pilot Jake (who made a splash on last season’s Bachelorette, Jillian Harris), does indeed bring the boring, as I expect he will, his legion of drooling bachelorettes will at least provide the crazy. If the look of insanity in their eyes is any indication of their potential to make drama, I’m hoping Ella and Kirsten are around for a while. But of course, eventually the bunny boilers are weeded out and we’ll be left with Pilot Jake’s faves. Last season I pretty capably picked a few of the favorites before the first episode aired and this season I’m trying again, with only my gut instinct to guide me. After the jump, the six bachelorettes to keep an eye on. Keep reading »

A “Shocking” New Twist For This Season’s “Bachelor”


ABC is airing a new promo for the upcoming season of the “Bachelor” in which one of the women is overheard shrieking about one of her competitors: “She’s been having a sexual affair with somebody else in the Bachelor House.” If you’re anything like my husband, you immediately have fantasies of hot girl-on-girl action, but the NY Post reports that a fan website, FansOfRealityTV.com, has been claiming for weeks that it was actually a male production crew member who was hooking up with one of the contestants during filming of the “Bachelor” this past fall. If the rumor’s true, I say more power to the woman! Of course, fraternizing between cast and crew on reality shows is usually strictly prohibited, but seeing as how the producers chose the most boring man in the world to be this season’s Bachelor, they ought to be thanking their lucky stars for a little distraction.

Coming Soon: “The Bachelor”‘s Most Boring Season Ever!


I simply cannot bring myself to get completely excited about the upcoming season of “The Bachelor” — premiering Jan. 4 — since ABC picked that gigantic robotic bore, Pilot Jake Pavelka, to be their token stud this time around. However, I am hopeful that Jake’s generic good looks will attract the crazies, i.e., the bachelorettes that are dying to fall in love with him at first sight — since that’s the real reason I watch this garbage in the first place. Check out the promo for the new season above — way to butcher the dude’s last name, BTW. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Papa Bach Jason Mesnick Pops The Question Again!

  • “Bachelor” Jason Mesnick proposed to Molly Malaney in New Zealand recently. You might remember that he popped the question to Melissa Rycroft last fall but then reversed his decision to be with Molly. [TV Watch] — What took him so long?
  • Joel Madden is denying rumors he and Nicole Richie were married. [Us Weekly] — C’mon people, stop trying to mess with a good thing.
  • Apparently, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are still on because they were seen together in Vancouver. [OK! Magazine] — Justin looks as if he doesn’t want to be seen with her, though.

Jake The Pilot To Be The New “Bachelor”

Hey “Bachelor” fans, in case you weren’t one of the 15 or 20 people who watched the “Dancing With The Stars” results show last night, you may have missed the announcement that ABC has selected jilted Jake the Pilot™ as the new Bachelor. You may remember Jake from last season’s “Bachelorette” — although you’d certainly be excused if you didn’t — as the boring bachelor Jillian deemed “too perfect.” She gave him the boot mid-season, but he came back a week or two later dressed in his Pilot’s best to warn Jillian about dangers of cheatin’ Wes. Noble, maybe. Dull as a meatloaf dinner, definitely. What about Reid?? God, even dorky Kpytok-whatever-the-hell-his-name-was would have been a more interesting choice. Oh well, maybe this is the season I finally find a hobby to occupy my Monday nights (I’ve been thinking about flamenco class!). What about you? Will you be watching when the “Bachelor” debuts in January? [via Popwatch]

Reality Show Contestants: The Sweatshop Workers Of The Acting World?

Ever since the first season of “The Real World” (damn that was a long time ago), I’ve watched reality television evolve—or devolve?—from a bunch of earnest 20-somethings struggling to make it in New York City to a bunch of fame-seeking whores pulling hair, getting wasted, and performing soft porn on camera. (Ever seen “Tila Tequila’s Shot at Love?”) I often ask myself what kind of person would want to live their life on camera? What goes on when it isn’t rolling? And how svengali-like are the producers? Luckily, the New York Times ran a story yesterday that answered many of my questions.

While people on these shows sign extensive non-disclosure agreements—they practically have to hand over their first-born should they reveal “reality show secrets”—most contracts expire after a few years. So some reality stars are opening up about their experiences while filming. After the jump, some the revelations from the article that shocked me the most. Keep reading »

“More To Love” Is About Female Insecurity, Not Body Size

I’m not going to lie. I was pretty excited about last night’s premiere episode of “More to Love.” At 6’1″, I’m a big girl no matter how much I weigh. Here was a show dedicated to the plight of all of us larger-sized folk wandering the earth, looking for someone who will say the magic words: “You are big, and that is awesome.”

The premise of “More to Love” is simple. It’s like “The Bachelor,” only people have taken to calling it “The Fatchelor,” because this time around, the dude looking for love is 26-year-old, 6’3″, 330-pound Luke Conley. And he’s not looking for a skinny bitch. He’s looking for a woman who’s “curvy.” Keep reading »

In Bed With … “The Bachelor”‘s Jason Mesnick

Note: I just have to say that I, Kiki T., being of sound body and mind, in no way would ever want to get “In Bed With” this guy, but, like watching a car accident, curiosity makes you do (and write) some messed up things. In case any of you like car crashes too, here’s one for you…

Bonnie Sheds New Light On “Bachelor” Drama

Yesterday afternoon I happened to switch on “The Bonnie Hunt Show,” a program I don’t normally watch (honestly!), just as Bonnie was introducing “The Bachelor”‘s Jason Mesnick and his Bachelorette, Molly Malaney. Last week I was on vacation in Central America, but by some grace of God, my hotel had satellite cable and I was able to catch the finale and both “After The Final Rose” shows (much to my boyfriend’s chagrin). I also might have flipped through the People that featured Jason on the cover while I waited to board my flight back to the States, so I was pretty up on what was going on in “Bachelor”-land despite missing some of the TV interviews last week. Still, there were some juicy revelations in this two part Bonnie Hunt interview — which clocks in at a whopping 17 minutes, 6 seconds, so grab some popcorn and get comfy. Pay particular attention to the little nugget of info shared at the tail-end of part two (clip after the jump, at around 8:50 or so), which sheds some new light on all the drama. Keep reading »
