My favorite holiday season has finally returned! Christmas is great, Halloween is wonderful, July Fourth can be fantastic as well, but nothing compares to a new season of The Bachelorette. Enter Joelle Fletcher (JoJo), our new bachelorette. The producers quickly reminded us that she got dumped by someone that loved her but “love[d] someone else more.” She was a fan favorite on Ben’s season, but I’m pretty sure Bachelor Nation loved about 90% of the women on his season. My favorite JoJo memory is definitely one that has nothing toRead More
Forgive me if my recap this week isn’t entertaining or correct. Despite the group finally leaving America and heading to Bali, it was the most boring episode ever, and I was completely zoned out for a majority of this dreadfulness. I should have just watched The Voice tonight. #regret Let’s start off with something exciting: this picture that surfaced of Bachelor Chris with Sandy Kenyon of Eye-Witness News and Taxi TV.   Kaitlyn  Chris and Kaitlyn walked around in a temple where they couldn’t kiss and balanced baskets on theirRead More

Hometown Dates: The Bachelor Season 19, Episode 8

We pick up right where we left off last night— Britt’s meltdown and the impending rose ceremony. But first- a date with Becca that maybe never even had a date card. They talk on a couch in a loft and hold hands awkwardly. Becca has never been in love; never even had a serious relationship. Then they go to the roof and watch the sun set over Iowa. The end. As Kaitlyn (already in possession of a rose), Britt, Becca, Carly, Jade, and Whitney prepare for the cocktail party andRead More

Small Town Livin: The Bachelor Season 19, Episode 7

Sunday night was a rough one for anyone with indecision or varied interests. NBA All-Star game, SNL 40th anniversary episode, The Walking Dead, and, of course, The Bachelor, which started off with Chris Tells All and closed out with a regular episode. Sunday was part of a two-night special with hometown dates airing Monday night. This episode, more than any other, gave me the feeling that Chris could marry and end up happy with one of the women in the house. It also gave us a glimpse into life on theRead More
Next season on Serial, did Kelsey kill her husband? #TheBachelor — Aaron Chewning (@AaronChewning) February 10, 2015 I’ve probably said this before, but this was one of the best episodes of The Bachelor in the show’s history. If not the greatest, it was definitely the most quotable. As per usual, I missed the first ten minutes of the episode, so I have no idea how the bathroom panic attack played out. I do know that Kardashley (formerly known as Ashley I.) and Kelsey got the last two roses, thus sendingRead More
I could just tell you that Kelsey is absolutely insane and I hate myself for ever liking her, but I know that you want (and maybe even need) some more details. But just know that would be enough to get you caught up on this week’s episode. Santa Fe, New Mexico The travelling begins, and the girl’s head of to New Mexico. Megan has some trouble distinguishing between Mexico (a country) and New Mexico (a state in America). She also wonders if everyone wears sombreros in New Mexico.  Carly, Let’sRead More
This season is turning out to be one of the greatest seasons in Bachelor history despite the fact that only two episodes have aired thus far. It’s not too late to catch up and join in on the fun- no one has to know. Or you can not watch it and just keep up with my thought on each episode, but make sure you start with the first one. So, I was a few minutes late to the party today– you can blame New York City subway delays for that.Read More

Recap and Judgments: The Bachelor Season 19 Premiere

The first episode of each Bachelor and Bachelorette season never fails me. It is an event. It’s a fucking holiday. Some lonely hot man or woman is left to meet a batch of potential psychopaths and hopefully his or her life partner is hiding in the rubbish. The arrival of limos filled with women in gowns, the cheesy lines they utter to their future husband, the drunkenness that quickly follows and the accompaniment of stranger drama, jealousy, and crazy eyes… I’m so obsessed. There are a few unwritten rules for theRead More
