I know, auto-tuning kind of peaked with Antoine Dodson’s “Bed Intruder,” but I think this auto-tuned video of “Bachelor” contestant Courtney Robertson signifies a resurgence of the trend. A very appropriate use of auto-tuning. Favorite thing: Ben as a puppet. Absolutely stinking brilliant. If he ends up with this chick, I am officially boycotting “The Bachelor.”  [Mashable]

Before she made a name for herself as the token crazy bitch on this season of “The Bachelor,” Courtney Robertson (or “Cuntney” as Amelia lovingly [Really! -- Editor] refers to her), appeared in this “routinely spectacular” Caesars Palace commercial. I may be interpreting the story line incorrectly, but is she supposed to be a working girl? Anyhow, on a totally unrelated note, I just realized that Courtney is from the same hometown as me and the same age as my younger brother. Hmmm. If you’ll excuse me, I have some sleuthing to do.

The “Bachelor” Women Need To Stop Forcing Love

If ABC’s “The Bachelor” teaches us anything about love (besides the fact that I am thrilled I was engaged and married before 25), it’s this: You can’t force love. From The Supremes we may have learned “You Can’t Hurry Love,” but “The Bachelor” has taught us something even more important.

The fact is, no matter how much you want to “open up” to someone or make them love you over the other girls, it’s never going to happen unless it’s there to begin with. There is a reason the “on paper” guy is bad everywhere else. And let’s face it: For most of the girls on the show, Ben Flajnik – and every Bachelor besides him — is merely good on paper.

It’s the annoying secret the sobbing girls in the limo always seem to forget. The fact is, not every guy is going to be a good match. Read more…

Let’s Talk About All The Things Wrong With This Photo Of Michael Cera And Ben Flajnik

As Amelia said when she looked at this picture of actor Michael Cera and “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik at a Sundance Film Festival party, “There are a lot of things about this that make me uncomfie.”  I couldn’t agree more. I had a visceral feeling of discomfort the moment I saw it. I have so many questions. First: Why was Ben invited to Sundance? Please don’t tell me he’s trying to be an actor now. Continuing on: What’s up with Michael’s mustache? His hat? Why is he holding Ben in such a lascivious fashion? Did they know each other before this moment? Or is Michael just trying to be ironic? Why is Ben so boring? OK. Your turn! [Michael Cera looks like my ex-boyfriend in that photo. Oof. -- Editor] [Pop Sugar]

How To Trick Your Boyfriend Into Watching “The Bachelor”

So instead of fighting your man for tube time, here’s how to get him hooked on the show! Read more…

From the moment I saw the camera panning in on the quotes on her laptop screen a la Carrie Bradshaw — “What does love REALLY mean?” and “Do I believe in true love?” — my interest in “Bachelor” contestant, “blogger” and “freelance writer” Jenna Burke, was piqued. In her opening interview she says, “I know deep down that relationships work and don’t work. But that’s not enough for me … I don’t want to end up with nobody. So it becomes a feeling of panic. It’s really contradicting because that’s not me.” Hmm … did she mean “contradictory?” Keep reading »

Last night on the premiere of the new season of The Bachelor, the world got to meet a whole new cast of women out to win bachelor Ben Flajnik‘s affections. Most of them were the predictably forgettable tanned dental hygienists and account managers of seasons gone by. But producers outdid themselves by casting the show’s first blogger contestant.

Jenna Burke describes herself as a freelance writer, but ABC simply lists her occupation as “Blogger.” We suspect that means she is “unemployed,” but she is certainly a reality TV force to be reckoned with. Here’s what we learned about Jenna last night. Keep reading »

Tonight! Liveblogging The Premiere Of “The Bachelor”

You guys! I finally have Monday nights free! You know what that means? I can liveblog everyone’s favorite show about women crying over a guy they don’t know, aka “The Bachelor”! And what better timing, as this season’s Bachelor is dopey Ben, who will either be 1) so boring you’ll NEED my witty asides to stay awake, or 2) will be so different from the usual brainless hunks that the show attracts that it’ll actually be, dare I say, interesting. No matter what, it’s a win/win situation and I can’t wait to share it with you. Tune back in to this post at 8 p.m. EST. I’ll bring the wine! (FYI, you can follow along in this post or by following @FriskyLiveblog on Twitter.) Keep reading »

10 Ways To Win Over New “Bachelor,” Ben Flajnik

And it’s official—ABC has confirmed that Ben Flajnik is in fact the new “Bachelor.” I’m just not sure how to feel about this news. Ben is cute and sweet, and the fact that he is a winemaker makes him quite a bit sexier. But he’s also a thinker—a thinker who sounds like a robot with feelings when he talks—and I’m just not sure that it will be that fun to watch for an entire season. Plus, ABC seems intent on making him sound as nerdy as possible in this bio: “A rare, modern Renaissance man, Ben dabbles in a lot of hobbies and crafts, such as crab fishing, sailing, golf, skateboarding, surfing, playing piano and singing in a tribute band. He is also quite handy with a hammer and saw, and loves fixing and building things, as well as landscaping. The woman who will share his life will also have to share one of his other great loves: his Jack Russell Terrier, Scotch.” He loves landscaping?!?! Woo hoo! [AOL TV]

Luckily, we watched as Ben courted “Bachelorette” Ashley Hebert, so we have the inside track of what the lucky ladies who end up on his season should do to win points with him. After the jump, 10 things to do if you want to win Ben’s love. Keep reading »
