So if we can’t have Bachelor Pad where we can watch cast off’s get drunk and hook up with each other we may as well put together an hour long blooper reel, right? Well it clearly worked since the Bachelor’s Funniest Moment’s hashtag #BTM was trending on twitter. (and if you’re a social media nerd like I am – well that’s 140 characters of GOLD!) So ABC’s Scandal thanks for warming up that top spot for us – BACHELOR NATION is BACK!
After 25 seasons there is no doubt that we have our fair share of DUM&$$ moments to showcase with hours of footage – but pack it into an hour and you will see the sole reason why we keep flocking back to our Television set’s week after week – with only 3 marriages and 25 seasons you still thought it was for the love and romance? Pshhh – please! (okay well maybe a little…). But all it took was one hour to get Bachelor nation back on our feet and after 25 seasons Chris Harrison and crew have a lot to be remembered for…
After 25 season’s we know this:
- The driveway will always be wet.
- The fountain never shuts off.
- Girls will always be advised that stripper heels and sparkle dresses are the go to attire of choice.
- Every season is 1 bajillion times more dramatic than the last.
- All the therapy hours had by past contestants may arguably cost as much as Chris Harrison’s salary.
- The pool guy is a saint for cleaning that sess tub.
- The interior decorator is never satisfied – she/he changes the house décor every season.
- Chris Harrison’s hairstyles will truly stand the test of time.
- Someone always cooks naked in the kitchen.
- On night one – booze tears and pass out fears never fail! Who will it be this time?
Memorable Bachelor Moments:
- The one with the 50 Shades of Grey tie meets booty shake meets falling on her &$$ then pouting about it.
- The one where an exit leads to a discussion about reproduction – Favorite line: “My eggs are rotting!”
- The one where the girl wants to get home to her kitty cat! “My cat is the love of my life at the moment – I can’t wait to hear her purr again.”
- The one where Courtney, Jillian and several others lose their tops… Courtney by choice I may add! “When in Panama???”
- The one where we learn that as sweet as she is Ashley Spivey is dubbed not only tone deaf but tone deaf with a southern accent. Now that takes talent.
Memorable Bachelorette Moments:
- The one where our first bachelor Alex Michel puked in the helicopter – like a three year old on the dragon coaster at a state fair.
- The one where Ed Swiderski gets drunk… then drunk again…
- The one where we learn that Kasey Kahl is not only also tone deaf his freestyling skills are up there with my grandmother’s. “Jump in my heart – stay a while!” (Blagh!)
- The one where Tanner Pope imitates sucking on toes. That… was just WRONG.
- The one where Ryan Bowers tries to “build-a-wife” in front of Emily… “trusting, loyal, she will serve me!” ummm, no.
Chris Harrison Facts:
- The man knows how to rock a pocket square.
- His vocab extends beyond, “will you accept this rose?”
- His affinity for glass clinking may arguably be his hidden talent.
- He likes to play the “pull my finger” game.
- He’s still the best thing that ever happened to this show! (swear…I’m not biased.. okay, a tad!)
So there you have it – 25 season’s 25 stats and a whole lot of sh*t left to show! We’re only just getting started and by the looks of the fisticuffs, love professing and flat out cheating that is going to come with the start of Desiree Hartsock’s Bachelorette season, the good stuff is far from over!
Next week I’ll be back blogging Night 1 The Limo’s – can’t wait to see what these first impression stunts these suitors have cooked up for our Bachelorette.
PREMIERES MEMORIAL DAY MONDAY, MAY 27th, 8/7c on ABC
P.S. Need to study up before next Monday? Here’s all you need to know about Desiree’s MEN! (click: here!)
p.p.s.…and if you haven’t seen enough of these men making a fool of themselves – well here’s a little more…

Well yesterday was reveal day as ABC’s The Bachelorette released it’s 25 card deck and gallery of guys that will be vying for Desiree Hartsock’s heart in the 9th installment of The Bachelorette. I have to say though this lot looks pretty good – they still can’t rival that of my favorite crop of boys from Ali Fedotowsky’s season 6.
This year ABC did a little something different. The savvy PR/Web Asset designer’s thought “Hey let’s put some of their chicken scratch from their questionnaire’s online.” Well I am not a damn graphologist – so their illegible handwriting isn’t going to tell me squat. Rather it’s just going to prove who passed the first grade unit on cursive and those who failed with answers resulting in “I idolize my fahjja#%aoid^)%oasd ao#%&*sdfanl.” – case and point, chicken scratch.
So what can you expect from this bunch – (more…)
We’re only a few weeks away and the promos are starting to role. On May 27th The Bachelorette is back! … and let’s be honest girls – the only reason we’re watching this season, 25 hunky bachelors are taking over the mansion in hopes to win over our Bachelorette, Desiree Hartsock’s heart.
Fresh off her season with hunky turned dancing spunky Bachelor Sean Lowe; Desiree made a tearful exit exclaiming that Sean had ‘made a mistake.’ But in an interview Des said she had “time to heal” and she knew now that he and she made the right choice. But before we let her have all the fun, what do we really know about our Bachelorette besides her down home roots and newly grown out bangs? Well here’s 10 things you should hear before re-committing to your TV on Monday nights… (more…)
GOD, I am such a sucker. The Bachelor goes off the air and just as if my boyfriend left for a three month work trip I’m getting ancy. One month and I’m already cheating with another guilty pleasure. Guess you could say I have a type – reality TV dating shows! But of course I don’t just go for anything – nope I’m a snob, major prime time networks only people, no small time MTV Next Bus crap! So I guess I put myself in a category, the “I watch reality dating shows,” category. Guess it’s a fun fact, or an addiction – there’s got to be a support group for this…
Last night we met three guys (guess I will spare calling them Bachelors). They all have their shit together, they are all rich, and they are all over 30 and make up this cute micro-casm of the nice guys finish last club. Thus, they called in the big gun’s for help. Meet the matchmakers:
All professed to be “experts” in finding matches – and based on the stats they have all the facts to prove it. Matt Hussey, you best believe I will be reading your book.
The guys – two Texans and a Miami dude. What is with Texas and the reality TV stars these days! Are we the new Tinseltown with cowboy boots, bibles and insanely blonde hair? In any case the first episode we gave the biggest celebrity Tim Lopez, frontman of the Plain White T’s the full two hours. Guess now that we know that you send home girls in little lit up boxes we don’t need to see it again next week. Props to NBC’s efficiency. Happy I won’t have to hold my breath and listen to long hold music while waiting on a single rose…
Tim Lopez – 31, Austin, TX
Lead singer of the Plain White T’s, divorced from his high school sweetheart seemingly all around nice and level headed guy with little emotion beyond general bewilderment and lots of smiling. Channeling his inner James Dean he appreciates the use of hair gel…
Ben Patton – 31, Dallas, TX
CEO of a Hospital organization, (and arguably my neighbor!) the financier, entrepreneur and guy who has a killer 401K Ben decided to break-up with his job and start dating real people. Oh he also plays with little African children…
Ernesto Arguello – 33, Miami, FL
Philathropist, central- American Latin lover, with great lines and an even bigger charm. Born in Texas he now runs a non-profit which creates safe and functional housing for people in Third World countries. I bet he also kisses lots of babies too…
Now meet the ladies. So far like my friend Jen said – they are a slightly less slutty group than some of the ones we have seen on other shows… ehhh hemmm. There are 11 from Texas… I’m sensing a pattern here. Agents it’s clearly open season in Texas, no hunting puns intended.
This week, Tim Lopez of the Plain White T’s meets 12 girls – chooses 9 for a group date and then has to send his first home. After some “tough love” from the matchmakers the majority of the girls stay another week. They are simply told to a.) Stay away from Fart jokes and b.) Make really really really sexy eyes like – all the time! In the end it was the already friend-zoned Leah that trucked her way back to Austin. Six years girl and you thought national television was the perfect time to tell him you had feelings??? SEE YA!
Now despite the fact that this show seems to be, Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker meets GSN’s The Dating Game meets ABC’sThe Bachelor meets Vh1’sTough Love, I have to say this show may actually have me sacrificing two hours of my Tuesday to watch what seems to be a less drama more real focus on trying to find love. It’s too early to call if Ready For Love is going to be The Voice overtaking Idol type of the reality TV dating world. With an ex-Bachelor producer on staff, wont be surprised to see a little more “Fleissmeister” than anticipated in every RFL episode. In any case to the TV glorified Bachelor, you have nothing to worry about! But despite the fact that Ready For Love seems to be all over the place, I am interested to see how it unfolds.
NBC just do yourself a favor – Ditch the Rancic’s. Guiliana is an E! News goddess and the couple compliment war thing were making me nauseous. Face it Chris Harrison is still number one – regardless of my undeniable biased crush of mine or not. Here’s to the rose master!Images courtesy of NBC.com.
We did it. It’s finally come to a close, all the roses have been given and Sean has chosen his bride – the lovely Catherine Guidici! Truly from the bottom of PRBlonde’s heart I want to congratulate the happy couple. I hope to see you all frolicking around Dallas very soon and looking forward to calling you all neighbors. Catherine if you need a design job, I can probably help you out there. (Notice the blog title.) (more…)
Looks like our the fan favorite from Bachelor Sean Lowe’s season is going to try her hand at love! After a tearful goodbye and thinking that Sean made a “BIG MISTAKE” the 26, year old wedding dress designer from Los Angeles, CA will clearly not have far to travel. Sources tell me and have confirmed that Desiree will take to the mansion in a matter of days to start her journey to find love with 25 new bachelor suitors!
We wish you the best of luck Des and can’t wait for us to be back in May blogging the season! Just make sure you send your brother to Miss Porter’s for a few “ettiquette” classes – several weeks worth would do the man good!
First off let me say thank you to ABC for giving me back one hour of my week and making this “Sean Tell All” / a whole lot of stuff we already knew – only an hour long. If you’re a blog reader like myself – I would love to say there were jaw-dropping things that we learned about our blonde bachelor’s journey that we hadn’t seen or some past cast member hadn’t already exposed before. But, in case you missed it – I counted down a few things that we DID magically take away from this episode calling it – (more…)
What a week! I think this is the first time where Chris Harrison’s “most dramatic week ever” actually may ring true! Hometown dates are here and our Dallas bachelor is making his rounds to meet the families.
I have to say this is by far my favorite week of any Bachelor season – you can always tell a lot about someone when they are around their family and it’s a HUGE step. So as Sean steps into each family temple to gain clarity I have to say what he gets out of it is a whole-lotta mess! P.S. Fun sighting of him this weekend at a local bar in Big-D – he’s looking a little (more…)
It’s Week 7 and oh man this was the night we were waiting for in so many senses of the word. Tierra the “Terriable” (thanks to who coined that one) “lost her sparkle” and it was truly the night of memorable quotes both on and off the camera. Six girls left and two were set to go home as we lead up to next week’s hometown dates and another two night special from ABC. I have to say – as much as love this show The Bachelor is asking me to make a big commitment – and though no one is down on one knee in front of me I will virtually take this as a sign of commitment/handing of the remote from Chris B. (more…)
Where to start. I feel like we have climaxed – the drama is gone, the annoying snake lingers and what we are doing for fun is being OUTDOORSY. I don’t know about you but I don’t love that Sean’s perpetuating our “cowboy lifestyle” when Dallas is known for three things – shopping, eating and football/day drinking – trust me the last one – one (more…)
