The Bachelor Update Feb 16th: Chris Choosing With Heart Not Hormones

After nearly 4 hours of programming on Sunday and Monday night, the Bachelor Chris Soules is now down to 3 women: Whitney, Becca, and Kaitlyn.

In these four hours, four women were tossed: Megan, Carly, Britt, and Jade.

When you look at all of The Bachelorettes this season, one thing is clear: Chris is making decisions not based on beauty but on a genuine look towards a future and marriage.

Certainly, Britt, Jade, and Megan are sexier than the remaining Whitney, Becca, and Kaitlyn.

With Megan, I am reminded of a saying of a friend of mine who claims long distance relationships don’t work: “What the eye can’t see, the heart can’t feel.” Megan had a great date with Chris but that was way back in the beginning. They had not seen each other much since and she left his heart.

Britt’s departure is the most shocking. After she opened up quite a bit to Chris, he gave the rose to Kaitlyn. Offended that she was not chosen (and she’s clearly accustomed to being the chosen one), Britt unleashed her emotions in-front of Chris and the other girls. Clearly, throughout the show, the chemistry between Britt and Chris was the strongest of all the girls. And, clearly also, she was by far the most beautiful remaining bachelorette.

But, Chris is letting his head and not his hormones do the choosing–an unlikely methodology from a farm boy but you got to give him respect. Similarly, he let Jade go after her revelation that she had posed sans clothing in a men’s magazine.

And Carly? Well, as we learned in the last episode of The Bachelor where Ashley I gets kicked off, the rat never wins. Carly ratted out Britt (unfairly in my estimation) and then got booted right after her. There have also been reports that Carly may be the next Bachelorette but I’m thinking not. She is funny and would be sure to throw down some juicy commentary but she’s not quite sexy enough.

Go with Britt for the next Bacehlorette!

So, of the remaining, who will Chris choose? I’m thinking not Kaitlyn because she’s too…over the top. So, that leaves 2 southern girls: Whitney & Becca. How is Whitney going to maintain the job she loves in Arlington, Iowa? Hmmmm…

So, that leaves Becca, the Virgin. This virgin status thing has made quite the headlines this year and much commentary seems to trend toward the negative. Of that, I’m not sure why. Is a guy going to pick a girl who has slept with many people or a virgin? What do you think?

I am sensing a big problem on the horizon though. Once you take the farmboy off the farm, and introduce him to the world–and the women of the world, can he comfortably live on the farm the rest of his life?

Ashley I Interview With Jimmy Kimmel

Ashley I, the “Kardashian Look-A-Like” from The Bachelor, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel (see video below) after her dismissal from Episode 6 of The Bachelor.

Unlike her character on the show, who seemed no deeper than a kiddie pool and more emotional than a Jerry Springer guest, Ashley I donned a funny t-shirt and traded some good jibes with Jimmy.Read More

John Stewart Leaves the Daily Show

Jon Stewart Retires from The Daily Show!

After 17 years as the host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart has announced his retirement which will take place sometime at the end of this year.

Jon Stewart was one of the few independent, non-corporate sponsored voices remaining on television. Apparently, the show will go on without him but his replacement has a lot to live up to.

I know that I, and the millions who watch Jon everyday, will have a 1/2 void each day for years to come. Jon, you will be sorely missed.

Thank you for 17 years of making sense of it all through your nonsensical, insightul lens!

The Bachelor Episode 5 Recap: No Rose Ceremony But Lots of Awards!

Episode 5 of The Bachelor with Chris Soules ended dramatically with no rose ceremony. Because of this, we are giving out awards to all of the girls as we recap the the action from episode 5. Let’s get it on!

The Shameless Widow Award

Oh, that sounds harsh as the show ended with Kelsey having a panic attack. However, bear in mind, from the first episode of The Bachelor, I was rooting for Kelsey because of her situation. However, as the show has progressed, she’s oddly celebrating, and using, her widow status to claim a higher moral ground and manipulate Chris.

The Bachelor Episode 3 Recap: 10 Critically Meaningless Observations

The Bachelor Episode 3 is now in the books. We all spent another 2 hours Monday night enjoying this delectable detour in our lives that serves up little substance but lots of sugary treats to begin our week. Jade went in for the kill (take a look above!), our Kim-K look-a-like got the hot tub snub, and Jimmy Kimmel had questions about just one thing.

In case you’re not caught up (for shame!), before we delve into episode 3 details, you can see all the Bachelorettes that started the show on our episode 1 Bachelor recap page. There we mark a little “X” as girls get knocked off the show. And, here is our Epidsode 2 Bachelor breakdown.

Which brings us to this week’s Episode 3 recap: 10 Observations That You Simply Can’t Do Without. Ok, maybe you can do without them, but why bother? People endlessly search for useless information and are constantly looking for things to do when they’re bored. So, there’s no better time than now to feed the mind with delightful drivel–let’s get it on!Read More
