After 27 seasons of almost painful heterosexuality, we were not optimistic that either “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” would introduce a gay or lesbian contestant. I mean, it took them this long to finally have a Latino “Bachelor.” And in an interview this weekend with The New York Times Magazine, longtime host Chris Harrison pretty much confirmed that any diversity in the casting department is a big HELL TO THE NO.  Keep reading »

Last Night’s Big Fight On “The Bachelor” Basically Came Down To The Word “Default”

Well, “The Bachelor” has kind of duped me again. It’s my fault for thinking there was even a chance that last night’s “nightmare fantasy suite” episode would live up to the hype of the teasers, but alas, Andi did not break up with Juan Pablo because he tried to pull a switcheroo and stuck it in her butt during the overnight dates. While that may have happened — girlfriend is walking kinda slowly the morning after (as you’ll see in a clip after the jump) — Andi’s reason for dumping Juan Pablo was the sudden realization that he’s a self-absorbed, uninteresting douchebag. Um … it took until the second to last episode to figure that out? Maybe not! After the jump, my assessment of last night’s debacle — which included a lengthy fight over whether Juan Pablo would use the word “default” (I’m serious!) — and some thoughts on who the next “Bachelorette” could be.

4 Reasons Juan Pablo Galavis Is The Most Sexist, Slut-Shaming, Hypocritical “Bachelor” Ever

4 Reasons Juan Pablo Galavis Is The Most Sexist, Slut-Shaming, Hypocritical "Bachelor" Ever

Welp, after 18 seasons of “The Bachelor” (and nine seasons of “The Bachelorette”), I think I might be ready to throw in the towel on the entire franchise. I know, what took me so long? “The Bachelor” has always been a satisfying guilty pleasure, but this season, with the casting of Juan Pablo Galavis, I was actually expecting to be a little more emotionally invested. I liked Juan Pablo, based on what little we knew of him from his appearance on the previous season of “The Bachelorette.” But oh, how the sexy has fallen. In addition to revealing in an interview that he’s a big ol’ homophobe in real life, on screen Juan Pablo has turned out to be a big ol’ stinker. And after last night’s episode, I’m finally ready to say that he’s the most sexist, slut-shaming, hypocritical “Bachelor” the show has ever had. Here are just four reasons why. Keep reading »

Another “Bachelor” Wedding Goes Off Without A Hitch!

  • Last night, former-”Bachelor” Sean Lowe and his final rose recipient Catherine Giudici tied the knot in a live, televised ceremony. I kind of can’t believe these two walked down the aisle — I was sure they’d break up before they got the chance. But how much did ABC shell out for their “grown sexy” (shudder) wedding? Hint: A LOT. [Your Tango]
  • I like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s album, The Heist, but I don’t think it deserved to win Best Rap/Hip-Hop Album at last night’s Grammy Awards — and neither did Macklemore, who sent a text to Kendrick Lamar saying he was sorry that he “robbed” him of the award he deserved. [Celebuzz]

Juan Pablo Galavis Says Gay People Shouldn’t Be On “The Bachelor,” Kills My Girl Boner Forever

I was overjoyed when ABC picked Juan Pablo Galavis to be this season’s “Bachelor.” Finally, a “Bachelor” that I wanted to bang! But also, Juan Pablo seemed funny and sweet and charming, and his status as a single dad to an adorable daughter was pretty hot too. But in the first few episodes of this season, my affection for Juan Pablo started to wane; there was something unnecessarily judgmental about the way he gave Victoria the heave-ho when she got excessively drunk on a group date. While her behavior was embarrassing and uncalled for, and she and Juan Pablo were clearly incompatible, I didn’t think the emphasis on how she wouldn’t be a good influence on his daughter was necessary. I was starting to get the sense that Juan Pablo might hold some conservative beliefs that conflict with my own.

Turns out, he definitely does. In an interview with The TV Page, Galavis called gay people “more pervert in a sense,” and said he was against the show ever having an opening gay or bisexual contestant. Keep reading »

“The Bachelor” Coerces A Woman Into Getting Naked On Camera, While Another Has A Drunken Freakout

Dare I say it, but last night’s episode of “The Bachelor” — which I livetweet every week from The Frisky’s Twitter account — might have been the darkest episode in the show’s history. Yes, I said “darkest.” I mean, not “Sons of Anarchy” dark, but the episode was more depressing than usual, and not because it featured a gaggle of women, desperate for love, fighting over one dude. No, last night’s episode was depressing because, during a group date, one bachelorette was coerced into getting “naked” for a photoshoot, while another got so wasted that she ended up having a crying freakout in the bathroom.

The Awkward Moment When The Murakami-Loving Weirdo Almost Rejected “Bachelor” Juan Pablo’s First Impression Rose

The Awkward Moment When The Murakami-Loving Weirdo Almost Rejected "Bachelor" Juan Pablo's First Impression Rose
It's A Rose, Not An STD, Girl!

knew Sharleen was going to be the oddest bird “The Bachelor” ever did see. On last night’s premiere, I was shocked to see Juan Pablo decide to give his first impression rose to well-traveled opera singer, Sharleen. The smart girl who reads Haruki Murakami gets the rose for once? What show am I watching?! I thought. And then my mouth really dropped when Sharleen was very clearly unhappy and weirded out about getting the rose, because she wasn’t feeling Juan Pablo as much as he was feeling her. So uncomfy was Sharleen that I almost expected her to turn it down and walk out the door in favor of doing math problems or something. I predicted yesterday that Sharleen wouldn’t have a shot at the final rose and she still doesn’t — because she won’t want it. Clip above!
