Well what do we have here?

Savvy IHGB reader Aneesa just sent me a link to People magazine with this interesting photo:

That my friends is DDAHnna Pappas practicing her golf swing with none other than Michael the break dancer from Jillian’s season.

BUT WAIT!  When you read the photo caption, it is revealed that the shirtless male is none other than Pop-N-Lock Mike’s TWIN BROTHER STEPHEN. 

I SO did not see that coming.  And I love it.

Although seeing DDAHnna makes my throat a little thick as I remember the last time I saw her begging for Ty’s Daddy to give her another shot, I can quickly change gears in my brain and focus on the time Michael and Stephen pulled the ole’ twin switcheroo on Jillian.  I loved Michael.  And I love that DDAHnna doesn’t care that she will be labeled a cougar for dating the 12-year-old brother of the Bachelor we all grew to love and cherish in an “aw shucks” sort of way last season when Jillian broke his little heart.

Of course, Jillian makes me think of Reid.  And those are always nice moments.  I bet he is somewhere right now applying Germ Squirt to his hands aggressively.  You never can be too careful.  Protect that immune system Reid.  I want you healthy when we meet and you fall in love with me at first sight.

Then I remember that Jake is the next Bachelor and that thick-throat feeling comes back. 

But it will be good.  I have faith that Our Host Chris Harrison and the ABC intern will not let us down.  Counting down to January!

    Very nice!

    So Lincee…any thoughts on the possibility that Jason dumped Melissa for Molly because he was jealous she would be the next Bachelorette? That fickle boy is going to see this picture and go running back to DeAnna.

  2. SGT Cole says:

    Ladies, I’m just a straight dude, so maybe my opinion is worthless, but seriously…look at the body on this break dancer.

    Really? Y’all go for that? You should never date a man you beat in an arm-wrestling match.

    On the bright side – these two can share tops.

  3. Lauren says:

    Sgt Cole – I agree that Mike and Stephen are small guys, but it is their faces and personalities that do it for me!

  4. CPP says:

    Lincee, Your train of thought is exactly like mine! Gotta love Reid! Too bad that Reid is not the Bachelor and we’re stuck with boring old Jake. But now he can meet you and yall can live happily ever after!

    I have “heard” (and by heard I mean read on the Internet) that Holly Durst from Matt Grant’s season is dating Michael the breakdancer and she is BFFs with DDAHnna, so perhaps they are trying to pull a BFFs date twin brothers sort of thing. How cute. Or not.

  5. saggleo says:

    I hear ya Sgt Cole. I prefer my man with a little meat muscle on his bones myself (HINT HINT, come on down to Chicago!). I call that the manly weight stage. Michael and Stephen haven’t hit that age yet I don’t think. But as Lauren said, it’s the faces and personality that works in their favor.

  6. Lorraine says:

    Sgt Cole, would that be something like sedning a boy to do a man’s job? Because I’d have to agree with you there.
    I prefer my man to weigh more than I do. Sadly my husband and I are running neck, and neck.

  7. yup says:

    Do the other ihgb readers think that maybe DDAHnna and Holly are bff’s because they are both trying to get more 15 minuteses of fames?

    Also, do I see some saddlebaggage on DDAHnna? Just sayin’…

  8. Catharine says:

    So, I’m seeing Sgt. Cole on here and sad that the big pimpin’ didn’t work for him, which makes me wonder what ever happened with your big pimpin, Lincee? Did I miss an updated post on this? I don’t know how I would have since I have been following you since my Texas friends were forwarding me your emails. Wish you really could get together with Reid!

  9. old fan says:

    #7, yup —- ummmm, yup! saddlebags and maybe a new 10 lbs or so? Not that there’s anything wrong with that……

  10. LindsK says:

    Since when do you play golf without a shirt and in workout clothes? We don’t do that in the south!

  11. Lorraine says:

    We don’t do that in California either ;-) Is it me or does this pic seem a little bit staged?

  12. Claiborne says:

    #11, I completely agree. This COULDN”T be a natural, candid shot. She is all about the photo op, isn’t she?

  13. Kristin says:

    Just so you all know, in case you already didn’t, Reid has been on a show on HGTV as a real estate agent for some big houses. I saw him on a commercial and had to stop and rewind just to make sure it was him. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to watch the show.

  14. Jenny says:

    Uhm…we don’t golf like that in CT either. Definitely not in yoga pants and a tank either!

  15. Jenbabe says:

    I am a full time grad school student, and I am taking 12 credits this Fall. I’m taking only 9 in the Spring, and I’m SO excited because I’ll have time to watch the Bachelor and read Lincee’s updates!!!! Even if he is boring…Jake’s hot!

  16. True says:

    Hmmm…this is very interesting. Whatever…she looks happy and he looks grateful. But I’m with Sgt. Cole…he’s kind of scrawny…and needs to work on the pecs…they are a little saggy. But then again I come from a family of tall, broad shouldered men, so…I expect all men to be bigger than me. It makes me feel dainty.

  17. Elisa says:

    Very good point Sgt Cole. But I agree with the other ladies his personality is what got me! And, he can always be sent to the gym to work on the arms, it is much harder is the personality is not there!!

  18. Becca says:

    Seriously, do these Bachelor/Bachelorette people have anyone to date other than each other? We are going to have to start a new dating game called Six Degrees of Our Host Chris Harrison. I miss Reid too.

  19. Debbie says:

    Oh Sgt Cole, your comment caused me to nearly cleanse my nasal passages with iced tea.

  20. SGT Cole says:

    Ladies, I don’t mean to be a snob. I am certainly not the most muscular guy in the world, and I don’t know how to repair your car (I hate cars). I just feel that somebody has to be an advocate for authentic masculinity. Lincee and I had a great phone conversation about this last night. I did most of the talking, which is why it was such a fantastic conversation!

    Long story short – take the so-called “men” who are slobbered over by women on reality shows and put them in with our fathers and grandfathers in 1941. Now tell them: “Hey men, go out and fix this economic crisis and defeat the two greatest military machines the world has ever seen.”

    Boys like these would pee their pants, and we would all speak a strange hybrid of German and Japanese.

  21. linceefan says:

    SGT Cole – Preach on!

  22. Trixie says:

    terrible swing!

  23. EMM says:

    I have been a reader, a big fan, and lurker for quite a while. Y’all make me laugh. Lincee’s wicked sense of humor and the banter in the comments is stellar!

    I have to agree with #21. Bring it, SGT Cole! We have enough women in this world. We need a few more MEN. Have y’all ever noticed that when couples are portrayed in commercials, the man is ALWAYS the idiot or boob? That annoys the hell out of me. Unfortunately, I think it reveals how masculinity is viewed in our culture. tragic. Just my .02. (stepping off of soapbox)

    #8 Me too! Lincee, how did your big pimpin’ go? Inquiring minds want to know.

  24. Reese says:

    Okay, not sure if this has been discussed or not, but I’m going to bring it up in this thread…

    Holly Durst (who was turned down on Matt’s season of The Bachelor, I think, and dated Jesse from DeAnna’s season following their break up), started dating cute little Michael Stagliano from Jillian’s season when the show was still airing.
    Holly and DeAnna ended up becoming friends after they both kicked Jesse to the curb.
    Then, Holly and Michael introduced DeAnna to Stephen, the twin Stagliano!

    I managed to grasp all of this from their Twitter feeds… it’s one crazy mash up of relationships, this reality TV world.

  25. also from texas says:

    whimpy whimpy whim-py…HEFTY HEFTY HEF-TY

  26. Debbie says:

    #20 EXACTLY…here is my two cents…rabid feminism has spent decades emasculating men. We’re left with a bunch of pretty boys who care more about the style of their hair or clothes instead of the real things in life. I’m not saying all men are like that…we have good men like Sgt Cole who have not subscribed to wussyness as a cultural norm.

    And unfortunately a lot of great men are sneered at for being real men. Give me a guy who still knows his manners and will hold a door open for a lady (amongst other things).

  27. Lisa in SF says:

    Lincee, and other IHGB followers….I live in San Francisco and I saw Jake & “Mystery Girl” shopping in one of the local neighborhoods yesterday. I wasn’t sure what was happening, until I saw the camera crew and ABC Intern with walkie-talkies…PS, as we guessed, the intern is not that impressive. I was trying to think which date they were on, it was obviously a 1-1 date, too soon to be a hometown date I think (plus my friend I was with knew the girl and said she is from the east coast, my friend also said she was a drama queen…) I don’t remember the girl’s name, however she was a petite long blonde haired thing….and ladies, Jake isn’t too impressive in person either. He was about as tall as me – and I’m 5’6″… Let’s hope it’s an interesting season….

  28. yup says:

    SGT COLE, yes yes yes. Thanks for your post.

  29. Susan says:

    I just don’t know what we’re gonna do without a theme song for the new Bachelor season. “Well, they say love don’t come eeeaaaaasyyyy” really can’t be topped. Are we going to have to start making up lyrics to hokey songs like “Leavin’ On a Jet Plane” and “Up, Up and Away…”?

    Although now that I’ve typed that, I’m having visions of Jake taking a young hopeful on a one-on-one date…the kind of date where if she doesn’t get a rose, she doesn’t come back at all. “We’re leavin’ on a jet plane, don’t know IF YOU’LL be back again.”

    Sigh. I miss creepy Wes. I miss Tanner and his toe fetish. I really, really miss Reid. Funny, charming, germophobic Reid. I even miss Ed Lover, even after all the revelations about other women. Guess who I don’t miss at all? Jillian! She needs to go away where I can’t hear her going “EEEEEEKKKK” all over the place.

    And I miss having a song to rewrite every week. Damn it Wes. You’ve ruined me.

  30. sc says:

    Lisa, you rock for sharing. I could have sworn though that OHCH said they don’t film til November? Would they be getting into 1-on-1 dates yet? I miss Reid too. The more I think about his giddiness on the train, him being adorable in Europe, the more I want to drug/kidnap him. He is so stinkin’ cute.

  31. Humble says:

    If this shot is staged (which I’m sure it is), you think she would have dressed up a bit for People magazine.

  32. Stephanie says:

    Thanks for the fix. I’m sooo missing my show.

  33. Spring Training says:

    Theme song? This season is going to a show about “Short People”, thank you Randy Newman.

  34. blog says:

    This sounds very intriguing and refreshingly different. However the mention of India and ghost story reminded me of a strange movie from the 70s, I think was called; Ghost Story. It was an odd period piece but what was really weird was it starred Murray Melvin, Marriage Faithful and Penelope Keith?
