By now everyone who is familiar with the show, The Bachelor, knows that the new guy for the next season has been chosen. When the announcement was made, viewers were told they would be “shocked.” Probably not all were, I was not.
Reality TV is all about getting people to tune in, get excited, stay loyal—and […]

Carly and Evan—Love is worth a second look

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

Most or all of us believe that love at first sight can happen, or that good friends could grow into lovers given the right mix of chemistry. But the idea of someone falling in love with a person they were initially repulsed by—now that is a shocker for most people. This is the love story […]

Advice to Bachelorettes in “Paradise”

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

I have been watching (and frequently cringing over) this season’s Bachelor in Paradise. From an abusive, over-muscled villain to an overserved female (and male) or two—the behavior on this Bachelor barely passes for unacceptable. But we continue to watch and ratings are probably strong. Why is this? Maybe these folks help us to feel superior, […]

Ben, Lauren…and JoJo

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Given the premise of the shows, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette—it’s amazing we think it is even possible for contestants to find love. After all, one Bachelor or Bachelorette choosing between 25 stunning members of the opposite sex? Yes, it isn’t as hard in the first few episodes, when it is easier to cull the […]

The Bachelor’s Olivia

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

For any of you who are fans of the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise—this last week must have really kept your attention. There was a bit of drama that the show likes to bill as “shocking,” and “like nothing you have ever seen before,” but which is often just a variation on one of several plots and character […]

Bachelor fans—Can you resist Reality Steve?

Monday, January 4th, 2016

The NY Times ran a fun and interesting piece the other day on Reality Steve. Many Bachelor fans know who this guy is—the one who posts spoilers on his site, detailing each rose ceremony, every date, behind the scenes talk about the contestants, and who ends up with the final rose.
Steve is usually right in […]

Bachelor in Paradise—There’s something (wrong) about Sam

Monday, August 31st, 2015

Bachelor in Paradise has a recent addition who made a cameo appearance on a past season of The Bachelor, but because she had no chemistry with the Bachelor Chris, was sent home quickly. In other words, we barely noticed her. Now she has returned to the little screen as the femme fatale of this season’s […]

Once again, it’s summertime and a new group of (old cast members) of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have headed to an island in (Paradise).

Kaitlyn chose Shawn because their chemistry was best

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

This past season of the Bachelorette was entertaining to say the least. The credit should go mostly to Kaitlyn who is a straight-talking, down to earth, “fun girl,” who always kept it interesting. Of course, she was given a really great bunch of guys to choose from, and it appears that several had very genuine […]

Britt and Brady going strong

Well it looks like there is another way to win the girl’s heart. Fall for the runner-up and pursue her while others are playing the game according to the rules.. Britt and Kaitlyn were in competition on the first night of this season’s Bachelorette, to see who the guys would choose as the new it […]
