ABC crushed my trashy TV loving heart when Bachelor Pad was canceled last summer. I mean, the only reason to watch Bachelor and Bachelorette, which are both beyond stale, the past several years was to anticipate who will end up on the sleaze fest called Bachelor Pad.
On Friday, ABC shared its plan to launch a new Bachelor spinoff, Bachelor in Paradise, this summer. Paradise?!? Like Love in the Wild or Paradise Hotel or Temptation Island? I'm listening, ABC…
Bad news, Bachelor Nation! Gia Allemand, who appeared on Bachelor and Bachelor Pad, has been hospitalized in New Orleans. Gia's publicist shared, she is listed in critical condition following a "serious medical event, the details of which are currently not known." A close friend tweeted:
"Ms. Allemand's mother is with her, along with her long-term boyfriend, NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Pelicans," added Gia's publicist. "On behalf of the family, we kindly ask for privacy at this time."
Bad news for fans of the Bachelor Pad. The Bachelor Pad, the place where Bachelor and Bachelorette castoffs go to catch diseases 15 more minutes of fame and a second chance at love to win $250,000, will not air this summer.
Mike Fleiss, the mastermind behind all things Bachelor, nonchalantly tweeted the news. I'm kind of crushed, as Bachelor Pad is trashy summer TV at its finest, and I definitely need more of an explanation!
Reality Steve, the spoiler king behind all things Bachelor, weighed in on the issue. "Not surprised," Reality Steve tweeted. "Ratings good but didn't "fit" with ABC/Disney image."
There is a lot going on in the world of the Bachelor today…past and present. First up, everyone's favorite pilot turned famewhore Jake Pavelka is discussing his love, the talented Kristin Chenoweth. I will never, ever understand that situation as long as I live. She's just so cute, I want to put her in my pocket, but I am certainly questioning her romantic choices of late.
You know who else is questioning his romantic choices (and rightfully so)? Why, it's current Bachelor Sean Lowe! Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief, because it appears that even though he keeps picking the atrocious Tierra LiCausa, Sean now recognizes he was clearly hoodwinked…what a cute expression. Golly, Sean. And speaking of Tierra, she has to command that attention, right? Just wait until you see her recent Instagram picture!
Lindzishares with WetPaint that the couple was definitely in love but distance and trust issues drove them apart. Oh – and she pretty much blames Kalon for everything. No surprise there! Once a douche, always a douche!
"After the show we both put effort in making it work, but as most people know having a long distance relationship can be tough," Lindzi reveals. "I was willing to go the extra mile but unfortunately Kalon wasn't in a position to meet me halfway."

Leave it to Ashley "Build-A-Bear" Hebert to buck the system when it comes to wedding etiquette. Seriously, someone get this girl an Emily Post book stat! No, I'm being too hard on Ashley and her fiancé J.P. Rosenbaum. I should be applauding the Bachelorette pair for actually making it down the aisle given the curse that seems to plague all relationships born of the Bachelor franchise. Did you know that out of twenty-four seasons there have been twenty-one engagements that failed? I mean, yes, two of those engagements belonged to both Brad Womack and former flame Emily Maynard, but those odds aren't good! My math is bad…I realize that Emily's engagement to Brad doesn't factor in, but I feel like it is worth mentioning. Lots of failed relationships!
Of course, when Chris Harrison talks about the most dramatic rose ceremonies ever I never thought that he would try to orchestrate the most dramatic televised wedding ever. I don't know whether to be disgusted or proud for what will surely be Bachelor Pad style television. Slow clap, Mr. Harrison, slow clap.
Kalon and Lindzi have kept things quiet, but they're still very much together. Unlike Tony Pieper and Blakeley Jones, who got engaged before the cameras stopped rolling, moved in together immediately, and broke up just a few months later, Kalon and Lindzi are taking things slow. Following the Bachelor Pad, Kalon moved from Houston to L.A. and helped launch Givebones, a company that sells dog products online and donates ten percent of its profits to animal shelters and charities. Lindzi still lives in Seattle.
When asked about the relationship, Kalonsaid, "[Long-distance relationships] are difficult. I did one once and I told myself I’d never do it again. But here we are … We’re giving it a shot. We’ll see what happens. She’s wonderful."
