I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Our Host Chris Harrison is absolutely right—this IS going to be the most dramatic season of The Bachelorette…ever. After watching the last six minutes of the show (multiple times), I’ve reached the same conclusion. From the looks of it, ABC will have to wrap the remaining episodes in a plain brown wrapper and sell them by the register. Also, the ABC Psychotherapist is going to be working overtime with a line of crying dudes collected outside her door.
As a wise love guru once said, “Playas gonna play, play, play, play, play. And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.” The question is—will Kaitlyn be able to shake it off? Only time will tell.
Here’s what I was able to glean from this extra hour of The Bachelorette. Read More
You know it’s going to be a good season when in hour one, a healer tells a drunk, “You shouldn’t call them hoes.”
If that doesn’t say WELCOME TO THE BACHELORETTE SEASON 11, I don’t know what does.
And if you weren’t excited enough about the premiere of our favorite franchise, Mike Fleiss has decided to embrace his jack wagon ways by flipping the inaugural cocktail party on its side. Traditionally there is only one girl waiting for the parade of stretch limos outside the mansion, struggling to keep her evening gown train from becoming drenched after dragging it through the freshly sprayed asphalt puddles. This year, Fleiss gives the men the power to choose their bachelorette. Instead of the dudes vying to impress the lady with first impression tchotchkes and tales of overcoming odds, Britt and Kaitlyn must enter the arena together and fight for their right to party for the next six weeks.
Who will stand with a tasteful, yet understated accent table piled high with boutonnieres beside a man who is so talented, he can host a show and pimp a romantic novel at the same time? Who will have her hopes dashed, realizing that she was rejected twice on the same show in less than a year?
It’s time to duke it out ladies. We don’t need another hero. Welcome to the Thunderdome.
When I heard that ABC.com had finally announced the cast for this season’s Bachelorette, I immediately logged on to make make my preliminary choices based solely on appearance and the answers to a handful of questions. It’s important we make snap judgements in moments like these.
Before I scrolled through an entourage of men who looked the exact same as the one before, I marveled at the fact that we have trudged through 10 seasons of The Bachelorette. Just for fun, I tried to name all the preceding bachelorettes. You never know when this trivia might come in handy.
I wrote down my train of thought for your reading pleasure:
Tricia, brunette girl who didn’t choose hot Matt, Jen the Firestone girl, Ali of E! Television fame, I heart Roberto, Ashley and her sonogram, Canada girl, DeAhnna, Andi, Des, Emily.
Excluding the fact that I couldn’t remember Jillian’s name and that this list is not in chronological order, I’m proud of myself. If you ever need to phone a friend from a game show, and the question is about pop culture nonsense or ’80s trivia, I’m your gal.
This season’s crop of bachelors have definitely been filtered through a wish list. Britt and Kaitlyn have specific desires when it comes to their suitors. They want them tall, dark and beefy with extremely white teeth. Bonus points if your career has something to do with fitness or showing off your body.
