What Is The “Bachelorette” Vetting Process?

Last night, “Bachelorette” contestant Kasey Kahl showed the true level of his crazy, repeating the phrase “I’m here to protect and guard your heart” 90,000 times and getting an ugly tattoo on his wrist to symbolize his intentions. During their one-on-one date, Ali questioned Kasey’s sincerity. We, on the other hand, totally believe that he is this in love with a girl he barely knows, and thus we are questioning his sanity. Which brings us back to the age-old question—how do “Bachelorette” producers vet the men?

Luckily, Jesse Csincsak—the guy “Bachelorette” DeAnna Pappas picked in season four—has teamed up with Radar to reveal the whole process. Keep reading »

Has Bachelor Jake Quit His Pilot Career?

Say what you want about the guy, but Bachelor Jake Pavelka is doing a hell of a job extending his 15 minutes of fame. After parlaying his appearance on Jillian Harris’ season of “The Bachelorette” into a gig as the next season’s “Bachelor,” Jake then worked his way onto “Dancing With the Stars,” and he didn’t stop there. Jake’s newest job is a guest-starring role on Lifetime’s comedy-drama “Drop Dead Diva.” Luckily, he won’t have to rely too heavily on any acting skills he may or may not have; he’ll play a suitor on the fictional dating show “Finding the One,” in which his character “spurns one bachelorette for another.” He begins shooting his scenes on June 18 ( to air Aug. 22), and executive producer Josh Berman says, “When we spoke about his shooting dates, he told us that he would be coming from Texas and could be on the set by noon. Since he was a former [commercial] pilot, he still remembered the flying schedule!” Wait, former commercial pilot? Does that mean Jake has hung up his aviators for good now that he’s found his route to Hollywood? Well, no one ever accused him of being overly bright, right? [via People] Keep reading »

“Bachelor Pad” Is “The Real World” Meets “The Bachelorette”

I’m still not exactly sure how ABC milks the not-all-that-much-that-happens in a week on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” and makes it into a two-hour episode. But they do—and it’s highly entertaining. So what would happen if the network rounded up some of the top personalities from all the seasons of the show and had them live together in a house, “Real World”-style, to find out what happens when they stop being polite and start getting lovey-dovey? Hopefully, television magic because our Amelia is already pissing her pants with excitement, as this is the concept of the new series “Bachelor Pad.” The show started filming this week and will go for the next 15 days. It’s hosted by, duh, Chris Harrison along with Melissa Rycroft, who became one of the show’s most-beloved contestants when Jason Mesnick ditched her on national TV in favor of runner-up Molly. In addition to the chance to find love with a fellow cast-off, the contestants in the series will also be participating in assorted challenges. The winner of the show will get $250,000. [People]

The series doesn’t premiere until August 8, but already several sites have posted partial casts lists. Read on if you’d like to know who is on them. Keep reading »

“The Bachelor: The Video Game” Might Be The Funniest Thing Wii Ever Did


Major LOLZ at whoever decided it was a good plan to make The Bachelor: The Video Game, which comes out in July. Not only can you learn to cook, work out, and go bowling with the Wii—now you can also date! More accurately, you can “experience the drama of dating” with handy avatars of past contestants and give your man a sexy back massage or “play competitive mini games” like swat the fly with the racket. God, I don’t even want to experience the drama of real-life dating! Still, I do enjoy imagining teenage girls with their headsets, competing against each other for a rose from the Jason Mesnick avatar, taking their tops off and slapping each other, while yelling, “the boy is mine!” and drinking Diet Rite with a straw. I guess it would be nice to date without risking the awkward groping, “Is he going to pay?” waiting game, and risk of subsequent after-he-paid STDs (kidding). But human interaction isn’t that painful to make this game necessary. And it’s certainly not good training, unless “sabotage your opponents” is a necessary skill set in your dating pool.

“Bachelorette” Sneak Peek


You may remember Ali Fedotowsky as the cute, fresh-faced blonde who made it to the final four on last season’s “The Bachelor” before she left the show for work reasons. A week or so later she called Bachelor Jake telling him she made a “huge mistake” and begging him to take her back, but it was too late; his heart had moved on. No worries, though! Now Ali has her choice of 25 men on the new season of “The Bachelorette,” which starts a week from Monday. While we don’t have a rundown of the men Ali has to choose from, ABC has released this sneak peek and if it’s any indication of what’s in store, this season promises to be as ridonkulous as ever. Seriously, a professional wrestler who calls himself “Rated-R”?? On second thought, maybe Bachelor Jake wasn’t such a tool after all… [via Us Weekly] Keep reading »

Quotable: Sarah Silverman’s Choice Words For The “Real Housewives” Ladies

“My boyfriend and I will watch ‘The Bachelor’ [and] ‘The Real Housewives of New York,’ and we laugh at it, or whatever, but it just horrifies me to think there might be young impressionable girls who think this is what being a woman is, being a rich conniving backstabbing c**t or someone who is flattered to be one of 25 girls some guy gets to pick from.”

Sarah Silverman, whose memoir, The Bedwetter, comes out today [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »
