Maybe next season’s the Bachelor can save money filming the season

...and just film at Stagecoach.

ETA: Just realized @DEL901 beat me to it. Great minds and all 😉.

I’m highly skeptical of the Demi and Kristian shenanigans.  For starters, I highly doubt they are even a real couple.  Their interactions together seem too fake and unnatural.  Is there any evidence of them being a couple before or after filming, i.e. texts, social media, photos? 

Even if they are, there is no reason for them to continue on with the show.  They found their relationship off of the show, and so they should leave the show to explore it.

If I was being 100% honest with myself, I would watch a StageCoach reality show lol. Music Festivals are MESSY drama-filled places. Obviously not Fyre Festival level drama, but just think about all the T that's at Coachella, StageCoach, etc.

It'd be a great show.

I am totally convinced that Derek was in on this from the beginning as an audition for The Bachelor after seeing this display. He was 100% acting and he wasn’t very good at it. That’s why they couldn’t film him from the front when he was trying to pull a Mesnick. It was all behind the back fake sniffling. We literally lol’d during his TH’s. He tried so hard to care and think sad things so he could muster up a tear. He failed. Meet your next bachelor, Derek, the “amazing guy” who is always dumped for someone else, but is also super supportive and just wants everyone to be happy. 🙄🙄🙄

I don't watch the regular show, but I thought he was laying it on the tiniest bit thick with the "I'm always the guy getting rejected" bit.  

I still feel it's shitty for the show to rub a pre-existing relationship in his face....one that he was mislead about. 

I think I last watched this show when they edited people talking to beach creatures.  I loved that!  But maybe I missed a ton.

Or maybe they will film at Stagecoach instead of Paradise. 

Is Stagecoach a bar, a night club, a new version of Plato's Retreat???  I have no idea...and they all talk about it as if we're automatically supposed to know.

You are right, you’re definitely in the minority 😂😂😂. Just kidding. I think everything you say is correct. Another poster said it best that the way they’re presenting stuff assumes the audience is stupid. Just be honest with us. Tell us you’re changing the format and adapting to what’s going on in the real world. They need to stop being so sanctimonious and pretending this is all about love or some brave journey. It insults our intelligence. I think that’s what people are more upset about 

Heh 🙂

All that's fair. It just seems to me a lot of the commenters here are trying to have it both ways:  

One: you are going to read the edit and look for production's decisions and speculate on who is being coached -- in which case the whole thing is theater and Demi/Kristian is a construct, but no more so than any other part. (Personally, I was far more bored by the parade of women who had hooked up with Blake at Stagecoach.)

Two: You ignore the edit and let the story wash over you. Oh, Demi is finally in love. Look out, Blake's playa past is coming back to haunt him. Cool, guys are literally fighting over Nicole.

Of course, those stories aren't happening without production putting the pieces in place. If they just turned the cameras on, we're going to be watching home videos of someone's spring break. So I'm just going to shrug and appreciate getting something different.

Now... ABC is being pretty heavy-handed and obvious with all this. Watching how this unfolds just makes me happier they didn't pick Caelynn as the last bachelorette -- I was terrified they were going to try to do some comment about her rape, and that would have been a disaster.

Anyway, I've thought too much about this 🙂 I think Demi and Kristian will be in the periphery for the rest of the season and we can get back to Nicole serenading a clearly embarrassed Clay 🙂

Oh there were no high falutin ballgowns with Hannah -- well maybe that one green one.  Her gowns were mostly thin, slinky numbers with half the front cut out so she could show an entire big healthy leg right up to the high water line and they all squashed her bust into one blobular mass.  She walked in them  hunched forward like an angry line backer and often actually was angry.

The men all wore their much younger brother's snazzy suits and  the most exciting part of the show was when Hannah would mount the guys (every kiss led to a straddle) and we'd wait for seams to rip. Sadly it never happened or else they edited it out.

They are a real couple, many people have commented on seeing their Instagram feeds, along with photos and info about the girlfriend Demi had before Kristian.  

The relationship isn't a sham, just the circumstances that let up to Kristian arriving and Demi's "surprise" at her showing up.  That was all faked, pre-planned and produced for ratings.

Well, that was an embarrassing pile of self-congratulatory, virtue-signaling bullshit. Since when do you get to just import randoms from home? Although it's an inside joke that lady/lady couples move fast, the over dramatic weeping and constant kissing suggests they've been exclusive 6+ months and were invited to do the show as an LGBT PSA. And then they get to stay and get a date card???? Be more obvious producers. Way to shit on Derek. I hope they told him. It's obvious they're just salivating over the impending publicity of a lesbian proposal. Worse, Twitter is already tripping over itself to fawn over Demi and Kristian. Bleck! Somewhere, Jed's eyes are rolling into the sun. Kristian is weirdly stern and seems much older than 27. She and Demi have a strange mommy/daughter vibe.

Kristian reminds me of child killer, Diane Downs.  She not only looks like her, but the flat affect is the same.  She creeps me out because of this.

On that note, I would like to welcome everyone to this season's BiP drinking game, in which you take a drink:

• Whenever someone says "clarity,"

• Whenever someone uses "like" or "you know" as a filler,

• Whenever someone uses "literally" in an incorrect context. (You are not LITERALLY being crushed unless your body is being compressed, BiP ding dongs.)

I would suggest adding whenever someone misuses a pronoun, but I don’t want anyone to die.

So Demi gets to bring her girlfriend to Paradise for a big dramatic reunion, she gets her own little confessional thing, and they are just going to...hang out? If their whole deal is being a couple now then they cant really play the dating game, so whats the point of them just staying, why dont they leave? Other than this franchise has a massive hard on for Demi and thinks that she is the best thing since the Instagram Like button and desperately want her around and the center of everything. They even added her to Hannah's season for no reason at all! I guess its nice that they are giving some actual LGBTQ visibility here, but its just so weird how its playing out. It would be cool if they actually did a full on gender fluid season with queer contestants competing for each other, but I think this is as good as we are going to get for awhile now.

I dont think Derek is acting, I dont think he is that good of an actor to be honest. I think  he liked Demi (for whatever reason) and now pretty hurt, but thats complicated by the circumstances. He is really stuck between a rock and a hard place, having to make sure he is sufficiently heartbroken, but also never coming off as homophobic and making sure he is still being supportive of this romance the show is now throwing itself into. And now he just has to sit there and watch Demi and her girlfriend just...have a vacation I guess? The one part that seemed like he was playing for the camera was probably when he was like "I always get my heartbroken, I am always the good guy, but I want love", that just screamed Bachelor audition tape to me. 

So Kristian is 27? I would have thought that Demi would consider that to be about Cougar age 😉 

I did giggle a lot at people being like "she isn't from bachelor Nation!" when Kristian showed up on the beach. I know what they meant, but it was like they just cant imagine coming across a person who has never appeared on this freaking franchise! I mean,   the amount of time they spend hooking up with each other off camera, maybe they really cant imagine it!

My friend and I were practically crying laughing during the scenes after Demi brought her girlfriend to the beach. It played out like a Burning Love parody or scenes from a docu-comedy.

Demi: This is my girlfriend, Kristian, who none of you know and who I was dating pre-show, before I showed up and strung your boy Derek along for days on end!

*Everyone cheers, cuts to talking heads about how brave and amazing Demi and said girlfriend (who suddenly seem to be an established relationship) are. The biggest initial concern seems to be that Kristian has not earned her place in Bachelor Nation, but once they realize the edit that the producers want, this is quickly forgiven*

*Pan to Derek looking pained while his friends wildly clap around him for his up-til-now main love interest and the relationship she had before coming on the show*

Then later on... Hannah runs up with a date card. What a shock, it's for Demi and Kristian! Everyone fawns all over them and beams as they leave to a romantic date. Pan along the adoring crowd to stop on Derek, who never had a date of his own, trying to feign a smile as everyone fanatically supports the woman who has been leading him on on national television.

Did nobody else find this comedy gold?! Also, Chris Harrison was practically gleeful as he was skipping down the stairs to grab Demi and ruin Derek's life. I'm just enjoying all this for what it is, guys.

Haha I was wondering this too, the way they talked to each other it was almost like a bad improv scene where the two improvisers are both trying to nudge the other one into catching on, like

"REMEMBER... that one time we had a DATE.... when I said I needed CLARITY....?"

"Oh yes of course and then if YOU remember, then I said that I was FALLING for you and then I said... that.... we both need to be on the SAME PAGE....?"

"Uh huh that DID happen! ....um.... and THEN you were like, go! Find out what you NEED....?"

It wouldn't have surprised me at all to find out that the entire thing was a setup from the beginning, with a phony "girlfriend back home" and all. Because it CLEARLY was set up from the moment filming started, at the very least. I'm willing to suspend my disbelief at most of the Bachelor/Bachelorette shenanigans and trust that it's not scripted as much as people imagine, but BIP is a whole different beast when it comes to this kind of stuff.

Also, Derek as the Bachelor? Yikes. He may be a decent guy, and it sucks that he got this weird situation in BIP, but the man has no personality on the screen. He might be Ben Higgins-level niceness but unfortunately he has had zero charisma on the Bachelorette, or on either BIP appearance.

Demi opens up

This story is all over the internet.    Read it more closely, and you can notice something: 

Quote

"At first I was scared, I was a little bit uncomfortable. I was like, 'I don't know how much I want to kiss her on camera,'" Burnett said of being nervous about her groundbreaking storyline. "(Then) when she got (to Paradise) I was like, 'I don't care, I'm all over her.' " 

So, BEFORE  she (the gf)   got to paradise, Demi wasn't sure she wanted to kiss her on camera.   But I thought she didn't know she was coming!    Chris H sold it as a "surprise!  I brought your girlfriend here!" (Make out with her on camera, as per your contract!)  

Yep, it was all set up from the start.   And I bet Derek played along.

Derek is now one of the front-runners to be the Bachelor.  According to a story in Us Magazine online, Bachelor Nation is pushing him.  Hasn't been a single story that I've seen about Peter since the show ended once the 4 x in a windmill talk died down and most of those were from Hannah's perspective.  As for Mike, he may be on BiP, but didn't arrive the first night and still hasn't really gotten a story line.

Mike is practically non existent on BIP. If they were really interested in him, I think they would be highlighting him more.

Mike has become kind of a doofy nothing burger on BiP. I guess not having someone to compete over and focus on has really dulled his suave romantic edge. After all that last first date talk, he seemed like he could care less when Caelynn chose to pursue Dean and even less about the girl he halfheartedly decided to pursue after her.

I know that the producers are probably sweating bullets trying to make the next bachelor happen since Tyler is dating Gigi Hadid now, but tricking Derek/signing Derek up to gain audience sympathy via being bamboozled by your current fling's simultaneous lady relationship and then cuckolding him in the name of being a good ally...feels like a long, indirect walk to be the next bachelor.

I don't believe her either.   BUT - My point in posting the interview was that she "gave away"  the plot.(without meaning to)    She wasn't surprised that they brought her girlfriend on - she pretty much admits it was the plan all along.  She's just too stupid to remember what the story line was supposed to be, and screwed up in the interview.

IT's contrived, AND Chris Harrison was just beside himself, about being able to do this.   He was so happy and giddy with Demi, now he's congratulating himself on Twitter.   

I am all about people loving who they want.   But this was not an example of LGBTQ inclusiveness.  This was about showing hot girls making out, and claiming it was some sort of progress.  

(and after the show, Chris H went and watched lesbian porn)

I don’t really care who the next Bachelor is. The entertainment comes from following the women around. To that end, I hope they pick whoever is oldest (Derek is 32?). I think Colton was too young because then they basically just cast 22-year-olds who are nowhere near ready to settle down. Then we get a Bachelorette like Hannah and the cycle continues. Not saying they can’t cast 20–somethings, but it shouldn’t be a bunch of 22-year-olds, one 28-year-old, and a girl like Demi insulting her for being an old hag.

They need to stabilize the show with normal-ish women like Renee and Astrid. Remember Chris Soules season where both Ashley I and Becca were virgins? Ashley was (and is) such an overly dramatic spaz about her virginity, whereas Becca was like, “Yeah, I’m a virgin” and that was pretty much the end of it.

Wow, what a RIGHT REASONS viewer request. Trainwrecks make this franchise go round! 😆 But I agree that it is nice to have some Astrids and Vanessas (Nick's final pick, I recall her being very well put together) to balance out the drama and give us a little feel-good from time to time when they find "normal" relationships - or as normal as they can get on these shows.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for trainwrecks, I just think Colton’s season was pretty homogeneous as far as personalities go (though admittedly I stopped watching). Let’s not forget how entertaining Clare turned out to be, and she was older. It’s just nice when there is some variety of personalities and life experiences. Not everyone who goes on these shows needs to go to Stagecoach next year.

I think Kristina is pathetic for wanting to be "friends" with Blake after supposedly being hurt by his behavior, but I was 100% on her side in the Caitlyn (who?) conversation. Caitlyn deserved to be shut down in no uncertain terms after first badmouthing Kristina and subsequently trying to play the "women should support women" card.

Another point in Kristina's favor was the Key & Peele reference when she called Blake "Bahlahkeh":

Hate to burst your bubble, but Balockaye is Blake's Instagram account name, so it's more likely she was referring to that. Unfortunately you'd have to give him the credit. He's still a tool, but Kristina isn't pulling that one out of pop culture thin air.

Even an unintentional Key & Peele reference is better than the tedium that is Demi and Kristian.

Was Skipper the doll that featured insta-grow boobs by cranking her right arm around a few times? Or was that a special edition? Or am I totally inventing a memory from those 70s? 

I fully expected the Demi/Kristian scenes to fade to a fuzzy cam and include Wells pouring water over them to get them wet. Show should have checked out the SNL Vanessa Bayer/Kristen Stewart hawt girl on girl action to really get it "right." Barring that, they could have at least played Pittburgh Slim's "I Like When Girls Kiss Girls" as background. You know, real cutting edge bravery...

You are corrected about Skipper. I just looked it up Growing Up Skipper had breasts that grew when you rotated her arm. OMG I can't believe that actually got made!

Goodness I thought Kristian and Hanna G look just alike except for the hair.  Anybody else notice that?

Was Skipper the doll that featured insta-grow boobs by cranking her right arm around a few times? Or was that a special edition? Or am I totally inventing a memory from those 70s? 

Growing Up Skipper Doll

Growing Up Skipper Doll is one of the most well known of all the vintage Skipper dolls. Marketed as "2 dolls in 1 for twice as much fun", Growing up Skipper and her friend Ginger would grow taller and develop small breasts when their left arms were rotated forward, transforming them from a "young girl to a teenager". In addition to Skipper and Ginger's original ensembles - which included outfits for both the girl and the teen versions, between 1975 and 1976 there were an addition 6 ensembles that also included outfits for both sizes of the dolls.

I had that doll!  Not being much into Barbies, after making her grow and shrink a few times, it disappeared.  I wish I had it today, it's probably worth some money, or at least it has some snark value.
