Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” For July 13th 2009

Ding, dong, Wes is gone! The final three — Reid, Ed, and Kiptyn — go home with Jillian to meet her family tonight, I think, so there should be LOTS of aboots and oots to look forward to. Yay! See you at 8! Keep reading »

Did The “Bachelorette” Producers Edit Wes Hayden To Look Like The Bad Guy?

I was so excited on Monday when Wes Hayden finally got the boot on Monday night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” after Jillian Harris finally realized he was “there for the wrong reasons” (drink, bitches!). And after Wes got the boot, he seemingly admitted that he did have a girlfriend, as had been suspected and hinted at all season. Well now that he’s off the show, Cowboy Wes is singing a different tune…

In an impossibly long (85 minutes!) podcast interview with Reality Steve — I only made it through, like, 75% of it — Wes covers a lot of ground. Much of what he discusses in the first half of the interview is related to Pilot Jake. To be honest, Wes seems pretty sincere, and given that I found Jake to be suspiciously fake himself, I might even believe him. Crazy, I know. One thing is for sure — I am VERY excited to see these two duke it out on “The Men Tell All.” Feel free to listen to the whole interview here, but after the jump, the 12 most interesting tidbits…

The Sorry State Of Reality Love Shows

You know how there’s that certain type of guy you want to dramatically douse in a glass of red wine, just to wipe the smug look off his face for a split-second? That’s how I felt last night watching Wes Hayden’s behavior on “The Bachelorette,” when he realized Jillian Harris was on to his cheating, publicity-hungry ways. As if telling the guys, “If [I'm voted off], I’m gonna go home and have lots of sex,” wasn’t gross enough, on his limo ride out of Barcelona, he bragged, “I’m the first guy on the ‘Bachelorette’ to make it to the final four…with a girlfriend.” Ding, ding, ding! Wes, you’ve just one a million dollars! Wait, no, that’s not how this show works. Hello, smart guy. Guess who watches the “The Bachelorette”? Women. And more specifically, women who’re rooting for the single person in the driver’s seat to not only find love, but have it last for more than 10 seconds. In other words, if anything, this was a pretty bad career move for an aspiring country musician. “Bachelorette” fans aren’t going to listen to this reality TV villain’s music. Just like no one’s going to buy Spencer Pratt’s rap album.

Okay, rant over. But last night’s “Bachelorette” got me thinking—are reality dating shows intrinsically broken? Keep reading »

Wes Hayden’s Mystery Girlfriend Revealed!

On last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette,” Jillian Harris finally kicked Wes Hayden to the curb, after realizing what the rest of the universe already knew — that he had come on the show, despite having a girlfriend, solely to publicize his music career. For weeks we’ve known the first name of this mysterious girlfriend — “Laurel” — but after a little research and a tip from a reader, we know much more about her. Keep reading »

Liveblogging “The Bachelorette” For July 6th 2009

Time for me to sound like a broken record. Will Jillian finally realize Wes is a total d-bag on tonight’s episode of “The Bachelorette”? Considering I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting since, like, episode one, I am going to take a wild guess and say “no.” However, the previews imply that she does. But ABC has fooled me before! Also, someone has a surprise proposal? Anyway, see you at 8 pm bitches. Keep reading »
