Hola, Juan Pablo: The New “Bachelor” Is Actually Someone I Want To Bang!

As has become tradition, last night, ABC announced that a cast member from Desiree Hartsock’s season of “The Bachelorette” would be the next “Bachelor.” I anticipated that this would be the case, but I didn’t dare get my hopes up that the reality tv dating show’s producers would actually select a guy I liked to be their…

Have you been watching every episode of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” since way back? Us, too. Have you been just a little disappointed and confused and, oh why don’t I just say it, bitter at how much less shiny and magical actual romances are in real life? Us, too.  Have you ever acted like…

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…

Recap “The Bachelor” Finale: Catherine Wins The Rose & The Ring

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 i…

And The Most Romantic Part Of “The Bachelor” Finale Was….

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…

“My Little Princess” Is What Would Happen If “The Bachelor” & A Renaissance Faire Had A Baby

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…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Get Psyched, It’s Time For Hometown Dates!

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…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Tierra Will Not Lose Her Sparkle!

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 thi…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Tierra Almost Freezes To Death & One Woman Is Sent Home Before The Rose Ceremony

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…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Tierra Has Gone From Terrible To Frightening

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. Thi…

“The Bachelor” Recap: One Woman Won’t Kiss Sean & Another Gets A Date Fit For A Hooker

I’ve talked a lot about the diversity on “The Bachelor” this season, specifically focusing on the two black women who’ve made it farther than in any of the previous seasons. But there are also two other women of color in Sean’s group of lucky paramours — Catherine, who’s Asian, and Selma, who’s Iraqi. Last night,…

“The Bachelor” Recap: A Record Is Broken, Someone Takes A Tumble & Sean Is Basically The Best “Bachelor” Ever

Has there ever been a more perfectly blonde and tan example of why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover? I admit, I came into this season of “The Bachelor” knowing little about Sean Lowe, but was pretty dismissive of him based on the fact that he’s such an Aryan Ken Doll. I assumed…

“The Bachelor” Recap: The Claws Start To Come Out & Racial Diversity Is Actually Discussed

Dare I say it? I’m actually starting to seriously like and actually crush on Bachelor Bronze and it’s not just because if I close my eyes he sounds like Channing Tatum! I honestly think Sean may be, as Chris Harrison would say, the most sincere “Bachelor” in the history of the show, but also, gulp, the most openminded. I’m…

“The Bachelor” Recap: Sean Lowe, AKA Bachelor Bronze, Meets His Matches Including A Girl With One Arm, Three Women Of Color & A Familiar Face From A Previous Season

It’s a new year. You know what that means — it’s time for another season of everyone’s favorite sadly embarrassing dating show, “The Bachelor”! I took a wee bit of a hiatus from “Bach”-snarking last season, because I literally could not muster up one single solitary fuck about “Bachelorette” Emily. So boring, and from what…
