Is it possible there could be an episode of “The Bachelor” where the tears flow more freely and the tantrums are explosive? Why yes, yes there could be. It’s called “The Baby Bachelor”! It’s segment on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” starring his very own preschool-aged nephew Wesley, who is the sweetest bachelor that series has ever seen. [Hulu]
Don’t know if you’ve heard, but former “Bachelor” Brad Womack, who proposed to Emily Maynard, then declared he’d “dodged a bullet” after they broke up, and former “Bachelor” contestant AshLee Frazier, who scared the living shit out of everyone on Sean Lowe’s season, are now an item. Yup! Brad and AshLee are dating.The ”Bachelor” alums have been hanging out for a while now, and AshLee posted a photo of them sucking in their stomachs and embracing at a baseball game.
Does anyone else think this is a match made in Chris Harrison heaven? Just think of the hair highlighting tips BrashLee would be able to share! Read more at The Stir…
Hi everyone it’s Sarah, not Amelia, writing “The Bachelor” recap. It is both an honor and quite a bit of pressure given that last night was the dramatic season finale. The occasion, of course, called for a group of friends gathered around bowls of chips, salsa and rice crispy treats to fully immerse ourselves in this “so bad it’s good” TV.
I started watching “The Bachelor” three years ago with Jake’s season in an attempt to bond with a large group of girls in my Washington, D.C. dorm/apartment. (They had a group name and everything. I never quite got it, or fit in). I was the girl who sat in the corner and quietly made fun of everything. Despite thinking the “journey” was ridiculous, I’ve been hate-watching ever since.

I know “The Bachelor” is all about a dude finding true love with a girl and all. But let’s get real…probably the most romantic part of the entire “Bachelor” brou-ha-ha was during the “After the Rose” follow up show (btw, it’s federally mandated that you have to passionately whisper the phrase “after the rose.”) Bachelor Sean Lowe talking about his feelings with Chris Harrisoin. Surrounded by soft lighting and about a thousand candles (hello fire hazard!), the two men dished on Sean’s love life and his rejection of runner up Lindsay. And then the stage caught on fire! No, no, just kidding! But really, you so rarely see two dudes talking about their feelings. It was really sweet.
Well, the journey is almost over. Last week, Bachelor Bronze visited the final four’s hometowns and sent sweet Des packing because he was totallys cared of her tattooed brother. This week, it’s time to get the romance on, as Sean and the final three travel to Thailand so Sean can bang all three women on the Fantasty Suite before choosing which two he wants to introduce to his parents. Wait, Sean doesn’t do that. I forgot he’s a born-again virgin. Maybe he’ll finger bang them? Let’s find out! Keep reading »
It’s kind of a fact that British TV is far superior to American TV, which is why American TV steals its best ideas from across the pond. Take the new British dating show “My Little Princess,” debuting next week. “My Little Princess” is a mix of “The Bachelor” and your local Ren Faire. A fair maiden has a bunch of forsoothly lads chasing after her affections. They’re dressed as princes. Her dad is there to regulate. There’s a catapult, lots of men with hoses and waterplay, and each episode two guys compete for her affections by singing a power ballad. And a passel of men in tights. Men. In. Tights.
So yeah, it’s basically perfect.
ABC must know they need to up the ante now that this season of “The Bachelor” is less Tierrable, because they’ve double-downed with two episodes this week. This first was a regular episode which aired last night featuring the four hometown dates (recap coming up after the jump). The second is a “Sean Tells All” special airing tonight. Why does SEAN get to tell all for an hour while no previous Bach has ever been given the same opportunity? You know who deserves a Tell All episode? Tierra’s eyebrow. You know that bitch has stories. Eh, whatever, you know I’ll be watching. After the jump, I’ll recap last night’s shenanigans, and reveal with woman was sent home. Keep reading »
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 »
