    S23.E06: Week 6: Vietnam

    I gave up when it became clear how fake this season is. Every year I expect one “villain” and a couple weird/crazy girls but this season everything seems manufactured by producers.

    The Bachelor in the Media

    Probably the worst news imaginable, the Bachelor ratings are up and ABC execs think it’s because Colton is interesting. Looks like they’ll probably try and cast more virgins because they seem to think it’s what America wants to watch. https://www.etonline.com/the-bachelor-abc-exec-on-ratings-the-shows-future-and-what-happens-when-a-bachelor-quits-exclusive

    Caelyn reminds me of Sarah Lancaster (Ellie from Chuck).

    Summer House Social Media & Spoilers

    The new brunette that Carl goes after is pretty cute. Other than that it looks awful (but still better than having the Wirkus twins and Stephen back).

    S23.E03: Week 3

    My guess as to the “falling out” based on each girl’s vague stories and their overall demeanor. Hannah and Caelyn were roommates for the pageant and, as young people are want to do, immediately glommed into each other as “best friends” because they didn’t know anybody else, were anxious about the competition, and were too insecure to be comfortable on their own. As the pageant drew out, Hannah couldn’t take the pressure and began to unravel. Caelyn handled the pressure by withdrawing from other people and becoming really quiet. Caelyn went on to place, while Hannah didn’t. In the aftermath, Hannah probably worked it up in her mind that Caelyn (her “best friend”) was a bad friend, that she should have helped her get through her meltdown, and maybe she even thinks she should have won and that Caelyn deliberately pulled away from her as a Machiavellian plot to destroy her. And the two young girls being two young girls, I’m sure they stopped taking to each other rather than clear the air, so now each just has her version of the “truth” which gets built up more and more. In reality, no pun intended, Hannah would be better off just letting this go and moving on. I can’t imagine what it’s like as a young girl going through pageants, being judged on your looks, but never REALLY knowing why you lose. Each girl is so unique and different, you can’t just say “I guess if I was blonde I would have one.” Plus you have friends and family telling you all sorts of garbage to make you feel better/worse. I can see how Hannah created this story in her head of what happened, even if Caelyn’s motives were pure. And it’s regardless or irrespective. Irregardless is a mashup of the two and has no meaning 😉

    S23.E03: Week 3

    I wish they’d cast older leads, just so they can cast older contestants. Most of these women don’t know who they are or what they want, let alone are ready for marriage. I dated a girl like Demi, once. She tried to act “sexy” and “sultry” all the time, but that got old super fast and I got frustrated when she couldn’t have a real conversation about anything. And it’s clear Demi is just doing stuff she thinks is sexy, probably based on some teen romcom she watched. The show needs more women on it like Becca and Elyse, who are mature enough to give the show some substance while the “drama” unfolds elsewhere. This season just seems like it’s all fluff and no substance.

    S23.E03: Week 3

    And this is how we know the show is fake. Any sane man would have listened to Hannah give her ultimatum, thank her for her honesty, then walk her to the door. Nobody wants drama and an ultimatum after ONE date with someone. Especially not somebody who can look around and find 20 other women into him who AREN’T causing problems for him. It’s not even like they had a great date, so Hannah doesn’t really have leverage to demand Colton kick Caelyn off the show. But the producers want “drama” so this stuff has to go on until they decide to let Colton dump one or both of them. You’d think they’d come up with something new and interesting after a million seasons.

    It was kind of dark so I may be wrong, but were Colton’s lips still covered in lipstick while he was talking to Caitlin? Jeez, dude, grab a handkerchief and clean yourself up. It was kind of gross to think about all the women he made out with back-to-back on that date. You’d think some of the girls would have been put off and tried to wipe off his lips before letting him kiss them.

    S23.E03: Week 3

    Wow. Is this the “fakest” season of the Bachelor to date? Normally there are 1-2 villains/annoying women. This season we have the pageant girls at each other, Demi and Tracy, and Onyeka who’s been friend-zoned and is just loud and obnoxious. Plus, Colton has zero chemistry with any of the women. I guess Hannah G makes sense for him, but I just can’t get over how tiny she is.

    S07.E07: Girls' Night In

    I can’t anymore. I watched the premiere and realized I just don’t care about these people anymore. I’d love it if they brought in a new cast of young, attractive, single coworkers. But this group is just gross now and I’m bored watching all the couples. It was more fun when they were all hooking up with each other

    S07.E07: Girls' Night In

    I don’t even watch this show anymore. I just come on here and piece together what happened based on the comments. Much more entertaining, lol.

    S23.E03: Week 3

    I feel like every season there’s one really, really, really attractive woman who gets no airtime and no attention from the Bachelor who goes on a couple of group dates then gets cut unceremoniously. It boggles my mind. Some of them end up on Bachelor in Paradise as psychos so maybe that’s it. But Bri seemed pretty chill and low maintenance. Which is probably why Colton cut her. As others on this board have mentioned, if he’s just looking for fame and not a real relationship then some of his choices make more sense.

    The Bachelor in the Media

    Yeah, I know. I just wish one time one person would stand up and say “No, not THIS guy.” There are plenty of other options out there.

    The Bachelor in the Media

    Anybody watch Music City on CMT? Season 2 is underway and there’s a smoking hot singer on it, Alisa, who just broke up with her dirtbag bf after he cheated on her. So now she’s writing songs with a country music singer and raving about how cute he is on social media. I was trying to figure out why he looked so familiar but I had no idea what he sang. Then it hit me. It’s Luke Pell! So Alisa dumps one cheater to then get involved with a guy the whole country watched treat Stassi like garbage on national TV. You have to wonder what these people are thinking.

    S23.E02: Week 2

    Tracy looks and sounds too much like Scheana from Vanderpump Rules, so I’ll probably never be able to root for her. Even if she dials back the crazy.

    S23.E02: Week 2

    Just pick Bri and be done with it. Not only is she smoking hot, but she seems genuinely chill and confident. I’m starting to understand why these are the women that go on this show, because they legitimately don’t understand social interactions. All these talking heads about how to get time with the Bachelor, telling their “story”, fighting with girls, gimmicks to stand out, props, ploys. Just be hot. Colton is 26-years-old. He’s just going to pick girls he’s physically attracted to (blonde, pretty, thin). Lauren proved on Arie’s season that literally the only thing most of these guys care about is looks. So just focus on looking pretty and being low maintenance and you’ll go far. Farther than if you choose to make a scene, break down in tears for some stupid reason, or just seem like a pill. You can already tell which girls Colton likes and which he just tolerates being there because of the show. If Colton doesn’t think you’re pretty, then making him laugh or making him spend time with you isn’t going to change that And I was willing to give Never Been Kissed a chance until we heard her story. She’s GORGEOUS. She went through all of high school and all of college being hit on by every guy within a five-mile-radius but never met one who she wanted to kiss? Then wants some random guy on a reality show to kiss her? It doesn’t make any sense. And if someone makes a lifestyle choice that’s their business, but once she and Colton started talking about choices as if they were better than everyone else or “know their worth” it made me ill. If you want to be a virgin or not kiss somebody that’s fine. But if you want to use your sexuality as leverage in relationships, or something to define yourself then I think you have some issues. You’re not better than anyone for holding out and not being physical. The only person it affects is yourself and your happiness. I think both will find out when they finally do have sex/kiss that they’ve just been denying themselves pleasure for some bs reason.

    S23.E01: Week 1: Live Premiere

    Forget “Why is Colton a virgin”, how has that gorgeous 22-year-old never kissed anyone??? She seemed normal (I accepted an emotionally stunted woman with braces and pigtails playing with stuffed animals in her parents house). I’m sure guys have tried to kiss her. She’s never been around a guy she found attractive? All through high school and college? She’s never been alone with a boy? I don’t get it at all.

    The Bachelor in the Media

    History. Maybe Arie has grown up and COMPLETELY changed his ways, but reports from his exes (even the ones who defend him and don't have an axe to grind with him) describe a man who is/was very self-centered. He'll give you all the attention (and gifts/money) while he's interested in you (ie, you have something he wants), but as soon as he loses interest he moves on and doesn't give a damn about you. We saw that first hand with his break up with Becca, where all he really cared about was getting her to forgive him. In his mind, he wanted to be with Lauren, so that was the only thing that mattered (and he had already gone behind Becca's back and lined things up with Lauren that she'd take him back.) There's a possibility that he's changed and will now grow up and think about more than himself, but he's also someone who's never worked for anything and doesn't suffer any consequences for his actions. It would take a lot of effort for him to change his patterns/ways, and he just seems too lazy and stupid to recognize that in himself. Agree with everything except the wealth and personality trophy wife. Most "trophy" wives are just that, empty vessels. Women with money and personality don't want to just be arm candy. And it's already been established (by his own family) that he doesn't date women who challenge him or are on or at his level of maturity. He goes for submissive, young, pretty women (girls) that don't really ask him to do much.

    S23.E01: Week 1: Live Premiere

    I’m sure he’s told by producers that if someone interrupts he has to go along with it. It’s not like Colton has no idea what is going to happen. After the Bach is picked, he works with producers and signs a contract on what’s going down. He knows there are producer plants that he has to keep around, he has to act oblivious to the cattiness (DRAMA) going on. He has to talk up whatever angle the show wants (virginity). He has to talk about love and finding love and how the process is working. The show isn’t about Colton finding his soulmate, it’s about ABC producing something they think is entertaining, and this is what they’ve decided they want. If you watch closely, though, you’ll see the Bach start getting annoyed with some of the girls, even though he keeps picking them.

    In the entire history of Twitter’s existence has anyone ever posted anything that made their life better?

    Just caught up. It’s pretty clear Georgia just wants to be on TV. I looked her up and she’s an Insta-Ho with over 1M followers. It’s a shame this season became the Georgia-Show because the rest seem like genuine, real, likeable human beings. But Georgia has just hijacked the show to promote herself with dumb catch phrases. Ugh. Maybe previous seasons won’t be so fake (though I couldn’t get into the first season as it seemed more meathead).

    Made In Chelsea

    There are probably several reasons for Louise’s behavior. It’s possible she reacted differently to Habbs vs Tiff because of circumstances. It’s possible she chose not to fight Tiff because Tiff had more support than Habbs does (I don’t like Lucy, but she’d definitely stick up for her sister and go right at Louise if she attacked Tiff. Louise seems to only attack those who can’t really defend themselves who don’t have tons of support). Or she could just see her position changing on the show and attacking girls is her way of getting screentime. I really like her fiancé, but this show isn’t really about happy couples, so maybe she’s more aggressive now than back when Tiff and Sam broke up. Or, maybe she knew Tiff was already leaving the series and didn’t see the point of fighting with her.

    Love Island (UK)

    I’m about halfway through the most recent season. The Brits are just better than us Americans. Period. This show is so much better than BiP and the contestants are much more civil and mature (even though they tend to be younger than everyone on Bachelor in Paradise). I also love that this show proves Chris Harrison’s entire job can be replaced by text messages. And the voiceover work is actually funny. We’ll see if the show keeps up, I’m at the point when Georgia is just lying to everyone and being an obnoxious brat. The show up until now has been really fun, but I have a feeling this Georgia chick is now going to start stirring up drama all the time to get airtime.

    Made In Chelsea

    Hard to tell if Habs intentions were honest (though I suspect there are several cast members we could make similar claims about). In the end, I think she does feel bad for hurting Sam and is trying to do the kind thing. I’m not sure why Louise still feels the need to butt into her adult brother’s love life and trash other women. Sam certainly isn’t a saint, and this breakup is a bit of a comeuppance for all the times he’s dogged girls. She needs to back off and mind her own business. There are better ways to support loved ones than going out and blindly attacking people and being rude whenever she feels someone hurts her brother.

    S07.E01: A Decent Proposal

    Honestly, if any of these reality stars with serious psychological issues were serious about changing, one of the first things they’d be advised to do (and do) is quit these shows. Maybe well balanced people can handle the spotlight, but people with real problems are hurt being on TV. These shows and people are toxic and designed to NOT make you better. The mere fact Jax continues to be on this show suggests his “change” is just a charade. If he were serious he’d quit and actually seek help.
