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.
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.”
I’ve been calling Desi “Cute Katie Holmes.” I need to change that. While watching the show “Fashion Police” with my wife (don’t judge me, Joan Rivers is funny) I saw a picture of Emmy Rossum on a red carpet. I swear Emmy and Desi were separated at birth, they look like sisters.
Not to play spoiler (here’s where I play spoiler) but if you’re an aficionado of this show, chances are you already know how this season is going to play out. The typical Bach season is broken down into three phases.
Every year the woman playing the Bachelorette has to have an angle. Last time on "The Bachelorette" Emily Maynard was portrayed as the sweet single mom who loved her daughter enough to leave her for several months while she traveled the world looking for a potential mate. This season Desi will be portrayed as an Oliver-esque, poor girl with a heart of gold.
