The Bachelor in the Media

Recommended Posts

Chris Soules is getting sentenced tomorrow for killing that man. He pled guilty to leaving the scene, not for anything else. He could get up to two years in prison. Somehow, I'm betting he gets nothing.

Ashley I is doing radio commercials for some product that "plumps" lips. Her promo is followed by a disclaimer naming all the horrible things that can happen to you and your face if you actually use the product. Yes, it's a real commercial! I heard it three times yesterday.

Chris Soules' sentencing has been delayed AGAIN. His lawyer "team" wants the victim's family statements removed. It's only been two years since he killed that guy. He plead not guilty, then guilty to reduced charges, now he (supposedly) had a "concussion" from the accident. *sigh*

It just shows how the rich seldom have to face real consequences.  The loss of a good man's life has been little more than an inconvenience for Soules who has only had to show up in court a few times.  Party on, Chris, you lipless, loser.

I never liked Felicity Huffman but now I have so much respect for her immediately manning up to being an idiot and just pleading guilty in the college admission scandal with so much remorse, probably going to jail, no looking for sympathy. 

Chris Soules, two years later, still trying to wiggle out of what he did? What a dick.

Wanda Sykes has a new comedy special on Netflix...she (hilariously) makes a case for woke women to quit the bachelor.  Gotta admit she's right!  I don't watch anymore (b/c it's boring to me now, after all these years), but still enjoy the snark....

I only ever watched it for the snark, to be honest. I am 100% positive that there is not one human on the planet that takes this tripe seriously. How can you? It's ridiculous, and interesting to see what lengths these guys and gals will go to for 5 more minutes of "fame"

When in reality, we (well I) totally forget all about them 2 seconds after the show is over.

According to the show The Good Place, taking this show seriously is pretty much a one way ticket to the bad place. lol

I saw that episode and I thought he was pretty good.  He did some Bachelor schtick but it didn't annoy me.  I hope he's the agent on any future Amsterdam episodes.

Is Arie even licensed as a real estate agent in the Netherlands, or was that faked for the show? He doesn't live there, so what's the point? I remember reading an article after his season saying that he and Lauren are trying get their own show on HGTV. Perhaps HGTV is testing him with one episode of HHI before investing in an entire show.

Well according to Wiki, he was born in the Netherlands and his family moved to the U.S. when he was three.  However, it looks like he's spent some time doing car racing in the Netherlands so he's probably pretty familiar with the real estate there. 

Maybe HGTV is testing him and Lauren but they'd just join a bunch of other couples trying for shows on that network.  I only watch HH and HHI so I probably wouldn't be watching if they did get a show.

That show is as fake as The Bachelor! I read a long article on it once. They said sometimes the real estate agents are even real estate agents at all. And they have already closed on or chosen the house they pick. It's still a fun show though. I wanted to see Arie....wondering if I could find it on On Demand?

Arie was touting himself as an international relocation expert.  I thought he was kind of boring.

This is a scary-looking tweet, but I believe Wills is probably only tired of being in the Bachelor franchise.

Yeah doesn't look like he's ready to off himself.  While it was probably fun at first, he's probably tired of the Bachelor franchise.  Can't say I blame him.   The good thing is that I don't think he's that recognizable in public so he should be able to just go on with his life.

Who is Nick Viall dating? I am listening (while I work) to RS's podcast with Christen Whitney (stil do not like her at all). She said she was having dinner that night with Nick's girlfriend, and RS said "say hi to Amanda". Is it Amanda Stanton??

EDIT:  MY BAD, she was referencing Luke Pell's girlfriend. They were talking about Nick and I missed Luke's name.

Beautiful family but what’s up with all the “shocked/surprised” comments? How else do they think babies are made?

He’ll be back. They always come back.

Any updates on Cassie and Colton?

I haven't seen or heard of Wills for AGES. Unless he's going to be on BIP, I thought he was pretty much out of Bach Nation. His tweet could mean anything. Or nothing.

I was at Dollar Tree this weekend, everything's one dollar. I walked past the book shelf and there in front was Sean Lowe's book, For the Right Reasons: America's Favorite Bachelor on Faith, Love, Marriage, and Why Nice Guys Finish First. I opened it up and read a paragraph or two, and thought, well, it's only one dollar. Then remembered I never liked Sean or Catherine so I put it back and walked on. But thought I'd give a heads up to any Sean fans here. Hey, it's just a buck!
