Another week, another episode of America’s favorite guilty pleasure, “The Bachelor.” But is it still America’s favorite guilty pleasure? I’m beginning to have my doubts. While hanging out with my daughter this weekend the topic of Juan Pablo and “The Bachelor” came up. She said this season was boring because nothing interesting is happening and […]
Another week, another episode of America’s favorite guilty pleasure, “The Bachelor.” Okay, so who subjected themselves to the torture that was “Sean and Catherine’s Wedding” on Sunday night? Yeah, me too. For two hours I sat and watched every wedding cliché in the book. Here’s the happy couple tasting wedding cakes, here’s the happy couple […]
Another week, another episode of America’s favorite guilty pleasure, “The Bachelor.” I’m sooo happy! Maybe it’s because my beloved Denver Broncos made it to the Super Bowl. Or perhaps it’s because normally bland Juan Pablo stuck his foot in his mouth by saying a gay Bachelor would “not be a good example for kids” and […]
“There was some sex, there was a lot of pooping, there was a lot of disorder.”
RHAP blogger Terry Terrones recaps and breaks down episode one of the Bachelor with Juan Pablo Galavis.
We made it! Our little adventure that started in May has now drawn to a dramatic conclusion. We’ve seen all the drama (and boring stuff), the deceivers (and boring stuff) and heard every cliché in this series’ history. And now, we’ve reached the end of our journey.
I thought it clearly pointed to Desi ending up alone. Then I saw this magazine cover at the grocery store and my supposedly brilliant theory that Brooks got cold feet and she rejected Chris during the final rose ceremony after Drew pulled out fell apart. Damn ABC producers and their clever editing.
A surprisingly small team of eight handles casting for the Bachelor and Bachelorette. Leading that team since the series’ inception is Lacey Pemberton. Ms. Pemberton is a veteran casting director. Not only has she worked on both Bach franchises but she also served as casting director for “American Inventor” and “Shaq’s Big Challenge.”
RHAP blogger Terry Terrones goes undercover to investigate the Bachelor/Bachelorette casting process.
There was a Bachelor casting call in Denver last weekend. After getting permission from ABC, I attended. I was there for about two hours and talked to the show’s casting director and about 10-12 different women who were applying to be on the next season of “The Bachelor.”
I can’t tell Desi’s feelings for any of these guys apart. Her demeanor is the same with all of them. That doesn’t make any sense to me. All relationships are different, but Desi’s are all homogenized…I think Zak is the best fit for Desi. They both seem to have the same level IQ. Somewhere in the 90ish range...Does anyone else notice the odd noises (screams, goofy laughs) Desi makes? Don’t say its not just me…My top two choices to “win” this contest are Brooks and Chris. Everyone else is fighting for bronze.
Before I get to this week’s episode, I wanted to share an interesting article with you on reality TV that I recently read on The A.V. Club. The writer of the post spoke with an experienced reality TV show producer. One of the shows the producer worked on was “The Bachelor.”
I’ve always been fascinated by how people get on reality shows. The process just fascinates me because I always wonder two things - 1) Why someone would want to be on one? and 2) How does the selection process work?
Before we get to this week’s running diary I wanted to talk about last week’s episode. The “highlight” of episode three was Brian’s girlfriend popping up. It was really weird and really awkward, which you would expect. But it was also sort of fishy. Fishy in such a way that I needed to do some research on the situation because it just didn’t smell right. Turns out this girlfriend “surprise” was a terd shaped mackerel.
Coming to you live from the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles! It’s the latest running diary of America’s favorite guilty pleasure, “The Bachelorette.”
