    Bachelor in Paradise in the Media

    I think we’ll have to agree to disagree on this. The summer before she had been walking around saying she had the strongest relationship in Paradise and looking down on everybody else. At the end, the guy pulled her aside and was honest and polite in telling her that he didn’t see things progressing beyond what they had. She they blew up and ran around the place crying and screaming about how mean and unfair he treated her. The reality was she was embarrassed to be dumped on TV. I have no problem with what the guy did. He was honest and took her feelings into consideration. She’s the one who blew things up.

    The Bachelorette in the Media

    “If Tyler is bouncing around from girl to girl and loving the life and enjoying the limelight -- which, by the way, good on him. That's fine. If that's what you want to do right now, I don't blame him. He's probably enjoying life really, really well -- but that's not someone we're going to want to have as our Bachelor or Bachelorette," Harrison explained Excuse me, but isn’t the Bachelor going to be bouncing from one girl to the next in the limelight through the course of the show? He just described EXACTLY what the Bachelor is. What he means is, Tyler isn’t submissive and willing to do whatever producers tell him. If you ever hear Harrison in interviews, he talks about “good” bachelors and Bachelorettes giving themselves over to “the process”. Which is code for shutting up and doing as they’re told. Anyone that believes ABC cares about these people’s love lifes is kidding himself. Run, Tyler, run. You can have your own version of dating 30 women at once, backstage the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. Waaay better than pretending to like a girl dressed up as an aardvark, a girl who brings an air horn on every date, and five women who are just going to cry no matter what happens, or whoever else Chris Harrison brings on for “the most dramatic season ever!”

    I think she had a change of heart. I’m not sure it was genuine on the show (I really do think she just wanted to have a “happy ending” on TV). Even with a change of heart, she didn’t need to insult or belittle him. That’s the part I always had a problem with her. She can be down right mean to people, and thinks it’s funny.

    Carly was the ultimate mean girl, IMO. Even on the BIP season where she met Evan, she made fun of him, took him for granted, and thought she was too good for him. I know they’ve rewritten history to turn her story into a “fairytale” but I never believed it. Evan, on the other hand, seemed genuine and a good guy. I think he and Joe definitely bailed Carly and Kendall out.

    Bachelor in Paradise in the Media

    Agree with this except I’m not even sure she’d be vilified for dating a guy. I’m trying to remember the last time they vilified a girl for screwing over a guy and can’t really remember 🤔 They do it all the time when girls screw each other over, but they tend to support women messing with guys as part of their “journey”. I’m just thinking about last season when Kendall was gaslighting Joe and basically being a f@ckgirl (hard to tell the difference between what she did and what Dean did). Instead of making her the villain ABC just turned it into a love story. (And to be clear, I’m talking about ABC and production vilifying people, I’m well aware girls like Kendall and Carley aren’t well liked on boards like this one).

    Hold on, everyone. Hannah B just said what Demi does is NOT the same as what Jed did. Glad she could clear things up with all her sage wisdom. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned about Hannah, she’s an excellent judge of character 🙄 https://www.etonline.com/hannah-brown-shuts-down-the-demi-burnett-jedd-wyatt-comparison-not-the-same-130572 on another note, glad Tanner is speaking for a lot of us who wish the show would stop with all the pre-planning crap that goes on.

    Jed has a gf back home but comes on Bachelorette to advance his career and is the worst person ever. Demi has a gf back home but comes on BIP to advance her “career” and is the greatest 🤷‍♂️
  8. Bachelor producers: Hi Hannah, we’d like to invite you out for Bachelor in Paradise. Hannah G: oh my god! That’s incredible! Thank you so much! BP: yeah, we’re going to bring you in first and center the whole season around you HG: I’m in shock! I can’t believe it! That’s so nice of you! Thank you! I can tell jokes and interesting stories!! BP: And all the guys are going to want you and ask you on all the dates and basically hold you up as this ideal woman HG: No way! This is going to be great for me! I can’t tell you how much this means to me!! You’re the best! BP: and then at the end you’re going to get engaged to this creepy little dude with low self esteem who’s needy and possessive and will suck all the fun and life out of you. HG: ... ... ... BP: HG: .... ... ... BP: Yeah, that’s fine. Just stare blankly and don’t say anything. That’ll work for us.

    I think I’m done, too. All these reality shows are the same. People complain about how much they suck, but the only thing the network cares about is that people are watching. The only way to get them to change the format is to stop watching. Although that’s more likely to result in canceling something than fixing it.

    Didn’t watch the episode but saw a recap. It sounded like Nicole was prompting Clay to be more aggressive and fight for her? Major red flag. It’s one thing to stand up for yourself or your significant other to support her, it’s another thing when a girl just wants to see men fight over her for some deranged ego trip. Run away, Clay. She’s not worth it. No one is worth that.

    Love Island: In The Media

    Updates on which couples are still together (hint, they all are). Though, it’s way too soon after the show for a real analysis. Several couples haven’t even had time to see each other again, let alone break up. The oddest thing in the article was the part about Zac and Elizabeth getting their own show. What the hell would that even be about? Who would watch that? Happy they seemed to connect on the show, but they’re so dull. And there’s nothing they do to build a show around them (how some couples do something in real estate or design or something). Are we going to watch Zac bag groceries? Start a fledgling modeling career? https://www.ibtimes.com/love-island-2019-which-couples-are-still-together-2812846

    I meant earlier than that scene. One-on-one I thought she told each guy she’s still open, but I could be misremembering that.

    I agree with you. Dylan is very possessive and takes Hannah spending time with him to mean they’re in a relationship. That, and everyone else telling him he’s great (because they hate Blake). Blake actually made a good point, that he sat back the whole day watching Dylan make out with Hannah and let them have their time. Then Blake gets five minutes with Hannah and Dylan has to go take Hannah away and “talk”. Hannah could do a better job expressing her thoughts and feelings, but I’m pretty sure she’s let both guys know that she’s interested in getting to know them both. It’s too bad the girl can’t just play the field because I think both guys are bad choices for the long haul.
  14. Still, I bet you didn’t end up ENGAGED to some dude because you didn’t want to hurt his feelings. Lol.

    Not sure how that contradicts what I wrote. I don’t think he ever tried to “juggle” Caelyn and Kristina. It sounds more like they pursued him before the show. As far as BIP is concerned, he’s only really shown romantic interest toward Hannah and Tayshia. And he’s not stringing Tayshia along. If anything, he’s the only reason she now has a chance to meet someone else on this show (because he gave her his rose). She should move on and use this opportunity, instead of just hanging out with Demi and Caelyn talking trash all day.
