We have reached a pivotal moment in every “Bachelor” series — it’s time for our lovelorn hunk to choose which four women will get to take him home to meet their families. Bachelor Bronze Sean Lowe has so whittled down his potential wives to six women: AshLee, Catherine, Dez, Lesley, Lindsay and Tierra. At this point, it’s hard for me to imagine which two girls Sean could possibly let go of, since he has off-the-walls chemistry with all of them, including the loathsome Tierra. Let’s see how he manages such an arduous task… Keep reading »

Two episodes of “The Bachelor” in one week? Cat lady Christmas has come early this year! I’m not sure why ABC felt these two episodes were climactic enough to warrant back to back airings, but I’m not complaining. On Monday’s episode, Tierra The Tierrable established herself not only as this season’s villain, but its resident bunny boiler as well. So, was she any more Tierrafying in last night’s episode? Let’s find out! Keep reading »

Last night, prior to watching “The Bachelor,” I was chatting away on the phone with a friend. “Oh shit, I gotta go,” I said. “I have to watch ‘The Bachelor.’”

“Ughhhh,” he moaned. “I feel so sorry for you.”

“Don’t,” I assured him. “This season is awesome.” And I meant it. This season has ladies who are insane but entertaining (um, Tierra), women I actually think are intelligent and mature (Lesley, Robyn), and a Bach at the center of it all who doesn’t repulse me. I’m not even irritated that this week has not one but two episodes, both two-hours long. Four hours of “The Bachelor” and I don’t even mind? Dang. Let’s get to recapping the first of those now. (The second airs tonight, so I’ll recap it tomorrow.)  Keep reading »

I’ve talked a lot about the diversity on “The Bachelor” this season, specifically focusing on the two black women who’ve made it farther than in any of the previous seasons. But there are also two other women of color in Sean’s group of lucky paramours — Catherine, who’s Asian, and Selma, who’s Iraqi. Last night, we got to learn a little more about Selma’s Muslim upbringing and how it affects her approach to appearing on “The Bachelor.” Let the recapping begin! Keep reading »

Has there ever been a more perfectly blonde and tan example of why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover? I admit, I came into this season of “The Bachelor” knowing little about Sean Lowe, but was pretty dismissive of him based on the fact that he’s such an Aryan Ken Doll. I assumed he must be shallow and vaguely dumb and just looking for a woman he could keep barefoot and pregnant at home. I am quickly starting to realize, however, that I was very wrong about him. Sean may just be the deepest, most authentic “Bachelor” in the show’s history. Let the recapping commence! Keep reading »

Dare I say it? I’m actually starting to seriously like and actually crush on Bachelor Bronze and it’s not just because if I close my eyes he sounds like Channing Tatum! I honestly think Sean may be, as Chris Harrison would say, the most sincere “Bachelor” in the history of the show, but also, gulp, the most openminded. I’m serious! He may be the most Aryan-looking “Bachelor” of all time, but it certainly seems like he’s not necessarily looking for the same in his eventual bride. This is by far the most diverse cast of bachelorettes ever — the women still on the show in episode two include three Black women, an Asian woman and a Persian woman — and while producers may have been more inclined to cast that way after receiving so much flack for the whiteness of previous casts, these women seem to reflect the variety of women Sean is genuinely attracted to. But more on that in a bit. Let’s get to recapping… Keep reading »

“The Bachelor” Recap: Sean Lowe, AKA Bachelor Bronze, Meets His Matches Including A Girl With One Arm, Three Women Of Color & A Familiar Face From A Previous Season

It’s a new year. You know what that means — it’s time for another season of everyone’s favorite sadly embarrassing dating show, “The Bachelor”! I took a wee bit of a hiatus from “Bach”-snarking last season, because I literally could not muster up one single solitary fuck about “Bachelorette” Emily. So boring, and from what I understand, so was her season. I must admit, I was sort of tempted to keep up my “Bachelor” break this season when I learned the new leading man would be one of Emily’s rejects, Sean Lowe. With his bleaches blonde hair and orange-y tan, he’s practically her twin. But then I remembered that “The Bachelor” is never about the man in question, but the crazy women fighting for his heart. Also, I never have plans on Monday, so what else was I going to do with my time? So, let’s get to know Bachelor Bronze (my nickname for him, henceforth, because he is SO tan and he came in third in Emily’s season) and his bevy of desperately single broads… Keep reading »

If you’re like us — well, except Amelia — you watched this latest season of “The Bachelor” cringing and hoping that bachelor Ben Flajnik wouldn’t pick resident sociopath/model Courtney Robertson. Ben’s flagrant disregard of the crazytown facts regarding “winning”-obsessed Courtney was mindblowing, but nonetheless, the couple seemed pretty happy after the show. But alas, their love eventually soured and now Ben is singing a different tune.

A Tennessee judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by two black men who were suing ABC over alleged racial discrimination on “The Bachelor,” essentially deciding that casting is protected by the First Amendment. ABC has denied their practices are discriminatory, despite the fact its crop of “Bachelor” bros are the whitest crop of white dudes this side of a Tea Party rally. Keep reading »

  • Well, that lasted 11 months longer than anyone expected it to last: Ben Flajnik and master man-manipulator Courtney Robertson have split. At least these two didn’t rush down the aisle to get married like other “Bachelor” contestants. [Us Weekly]
  • Scarlett Johansson is supposedly none too pleased that ex-husband Ryan Reynolds married his “Green Latern” co-star Blake Lively because their marriage was falling part as he was making the film and she thinks Blake swooped in to scoop Ryan up. Scarlett’s very “bitter” and thinks Blake is “phony” and a “fame monster.” Oh, but it gets even cattier: “Scarlett also considers Blake to be a cheap version of herself. They’ve actually auditioned for the same roles a few times and Blake has always lost out.” Gossip blogs sure do love the ol’ catfight narrative, don’t they? [Showbiz Spy]
