They sound a little bitter to me. After all, the trend for this franchise has been to pick the star for the next season from last season’s pool of contestants, which includes both Chad and Robby. Not to mention that Luke Pell has been doing a press tour of complaints after he was rudely shafted from the role at the last minute. With so many differing opinions about Nick, I have a feeling that a lot of people will be watching The Bachelor next season.
Is the FOURTH time the charm for Nick Viall? Or just pathetically famewhorey?
That is the question facing Bachelor Nation this morning. In case you missed it, Nick, who was runner-up on Andi‘s season of the Bachelorette, then hijacked Kaitlyn‘s season of the Bachelorette and was runner up again, then failed to find love on Bachelor in Paradise, was announced as the next The Bachelor lead, which many thought would be one of JoJo Fletcher‘s rejects, specifically Luke Pell or Chase McNary.
Chris Harrison, the most dramatic reality TV host ever, appeared on GMA this morning to explain the decision.
When asked about Lifetime’s critically acclaimed scripted show UnREAL, which takes viewers behind the scenes of a The Bachelor-like reality show, Chris did not hold back. According to him, ABSOLUTELY NOBODY is watching UnREAL because it is DISRESPECTFUL and TERRIBLE.
The Bachelorette is dealing with something the reality franchise has never head to deal with before — the tragic accidental death of contestant, Eric Hill, who is featured on the new season that has yet to air.
Bachelor and Bachelorette host, Chris Harrison spoke to People magazine about how they are dealing with his shocking death and what we can expect on this season, featuring assistant district attorney, Andi Dorfman.
Press surrounding the Bachelorisn't all roses lately.
In January, Juan Pablo Galavis stated a gay Bachelor wouldn't set a "good example for kids"… because why? He said, "they're more pervert in a sense." Juan went on to blame his poor choice of words on his sketchy English. Earlier this week,Chris Harrison added that a gay Bachelor probably would not be a good business decision for ABC.
Also? Chubby guys need not apply to be the Bachelor.
So, that Juan Pablo Galavis…he's kind of a sex shamer, isn't he? After getting down (and perhaps dirty) after hours with contestant Clare Crawley, who'd received a rose on Monday night's group date, the Bachelorkind of made her (and America) feel icky in the most dramatic awkward shaming in the show's history. Ever.
What's worse? Everyone keeps talking about it…and of course, by everyone, I mean the show's glorious host Chris Harrison and Juan Pablo himself. Seriously, JP just needs to keep quiet for a while. Chris, talk away, my friend!
Well this is the best news I've heard in a while! It may even get me to stomach a full hour a day of DVRed Jenny McCarthy and Babs Walters. Could the producers of The View be adding a dude into the mix?
Of course, they couldn't just pick any dude. They need a man among boys, a dapper, purple tie wearing hunk with a Zen voice and a penchant for roses and the most dramatic things…ever. How do I love Chris Harrison? Let me count the ways.
Who doesn't love to watch strangers meet, get whisked off to exotic locales, fall in love and find fame get married? It's a tried and true formula, and it almost always works…the fifteen minutes of fame, of course–not the marriage.
ABC's new Bachelorette is hoping that the show's odds are in her favor (or not in her favor…whichever makes her more likely to find a guy she actually likes) after failing to find love with BachelorSean Lowe. Desiree Hartsock, like all the other true believers before her, still thinks that the process can work. Sure.
Speaking of finding love, the shows' host, the dapper Chris Harrison, has apparently done just that. And not with me. Curses!
