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]
For us, the best part about Mondays is our girls’ night viewing party for “The Bachelor.” But sometimes we find ourselves at home for the show, competing with our significant other for the TV (hello, Monday night football). 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 »
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 »
