Every new season of The Bachelor producers try to come up with something different; actually more shocking is what they appear to be striving for. There are always the usual characters—the “handsome, accomplished, hunky” bachelor, the nasty girl, the crier, the schemer, the nice one, the one with the sad story—and the one who is […]

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 […]
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 […]
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, […]
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 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 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). Viewers have some idea of what to expect as contestants vie for attention and compete for the ultimate goal of true love. Of course, on this show as on all […]
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 […]
