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 »
After being booted off “The Bachelorette” on Monday night’s episode, Chris Bukowski is confirmed as the final “Bachelor Pad 3″ contestant. Get ready for a heaping helping of drama, hookups, and roses when “Bachelor Pad” returns for its third season on July 23.
This season’s contestants include the standard “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” rejects — some more entertaining than others — but there is a new twist this go-around, as there will also be five “superfans” (including twin sisters who count as one — yeah, I don’t get it either) competing for $250,000, with a possible side of romance. But let’s be honest, what we are really excited for is the crazy, which isBachelor Pad’s claim to fame. Even Chris proved in his final moments on Emily’s season that he had enough edge for the spin-off with his closing statement: “I’m 10 times the man of all those fucking dudes that are still there right now.” And what better way to see what we can expect from this group of rose rejects than to review their best and worst moments on TV? So check out this season’s standout contestants and their most dramatic moments from the “Bachelor” franchise now! Read more…
We’ve been waiting for someone to come up with a solid spoof of “The Bachelor,” and Michael Ian Black and Ken Marino have finally done it. Their show, “Burning Love,” features Marino as the typical clueless, self-centered bachelor, weeding through a classic assortment of hysterical lunatics and weirdos to find “true love.” Kristen Bell, Malin Ackerman and Ken Jeong — as delectable choice Ballerina — all play potential love matches, as does Jen Aniston in a surprise (big surprise!) cameo.
A Florida woman is reporting that she spotted Jesus on an episode of the “The Bachelor.” It wasn’t even the new season though, it was Brad Womack’s season, so I’m suspicious. What channel was airing that this week? And how convenient that this news be released during the week of the premiere of Emily Maynard’s run as “The Bachelorette.” I wonder if Brad is behind all this. Conspiracy!
Anyhow, Guerda Maurice of Port St. Lucie claims that she was watching an episode of “The Bachelor” and spotted a tent in the background that she wanted to put in her backyard, so she took a picture of the screen with her cell phone. That’s when things got divine. “My phone was vibrating and so warm, and very warm and hot like a burning smell,” said Maurice. “I flipped the phone and I see Jesus’ picture and I said, ‘Oh my God, where did this picture come from?’” And here is said picture of Bachelor Tent Jesus. Thoughts? My only thought is that if Jesus did choose to appear on Earth, I suspect he wouldn’t want to be associated with “The Bachelor” franchise. Unless he was attempting to present the world with a rose.
Any true believer will tell you that Jesus’ image can appear almost anywhere if you look hard enough. Keep on clicking to see some more of the craziest places Christ has popped up. [Mediaite]
Say it isn’t so! Chris Harrison, “The Bachelor”‘s host and resident wise man, has split from his wife of 18 years, Gwen. As a diehard Bach fan, I’ve always felt affectionately about ol’ Harrison, and have been impressed with his stamina for this whole charade, especially since he clearly knew what it took to make a relationship work. Was I wrong? Remember when Rozlyn Papa, who was booted from Pilot Jake Pavelka’s season because she had some sort of romantic dalliance with a producer, accused Chris of flirting with that producer’s ex-wife? I thought it was total BS at the time … but what if being famous — for seriously delivering the line, “This is the final rose” — has gone to his head? All that being said, I am officially in favor of making Chris Harrison the next “Bachelor.” Why not? He’d be more fun to watch that Ben Flajnik. And he could still host! That’d be funny.
