“You realize how little I do on this show. So, please, please don’t take away the one thing I do. … I wanted to get rid of that very early on. Eight years ago, I’m like, ‘This is ridiculous.’ It’s not about the math. It’s not saying, ‘Ellen, there’s a coffee cup between us.’ You know that. It’s kind of like, ‘Oh my gosh. One of us is going home.’ It’s really about setting that moment. It’s silly. There’s really no way I can explain that it’s not silly.”
—Chris Harrison semi-defends his job on “The Bachelor” after Ellen DeGeneres points out that he doesn’t really need to step in and say, “Ladies, it’s the final rose,” because, hello, it’s pretty obvious. [People] Keep reading »
Brad Womack is back for his second chance at love on season 15 of “The Bachelor.” Geez, have there really been that many seasons? Anyhow, I turned on the tube with my rotten tomatoes at the ready to hurl at the screen. In my estimation, Brad is the archetype of the emotionally crippled man. That guy who is in a wheelchair, but unwilling to do anything to help himself walk again. Or so I thought! Keep reading »

Brad was “The Bachelor” in season 11 and famously rejected both of his final two women—DeAnna Pappas and Jenni Croft. But it was announced last night during “Dancing with the Stars” that he will get a second chance. As Chris Harrison explained, “At first, I was skeptical.
