With less than a week until season ten of the Bachelorettekicks off, ABC has released the photos/bios of the 25 bachelors vying for Andi Dorfman's heart.
"Andi, 26, has it all at first glance – her loving family, her great friends, and her dream job [as an Assistant District Attorney]," said ABC. "But she realized there was something missing. So, last September, she put her busy life on hold to try and find love on the Bachelor. She thought she had found her match, but in the end it was not meant to be, and Andi walked away from Juan Pablo Galavis. Andi did not, however, let that experience stop her desire to find her perfect soul mate." The Bachelorette returns Monday, May 19.
AmongAndi's bachelors is Eric Hill, who passed away on April 23 following a paragliding accident. Season ten will be dedicated to Eric, andChris Harrison will honor him in an encore presentation of the premiere on Thursday, May 22. Mike Fleiss said about Eric, "We're all just devastated. He was such a vibrant young dude. He was. It's tragic."
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.
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…
If there's a void in your life where the Bachelor used to be, have I got a treat for you! ABC recently announced a month full of Bachelor and Bachelorette related events. Seriously, every Sunday and Monday night in January, BAM! Bachelor on your TV. ABC is calling it Juan-uary, cause they're clever like that.
The specials kick off on Sunday, January 5 with the Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo. Get an inside look at our newest Bachelor, Juan Pablo Galavis, including an in-depth look at his life as a single dad in Miami. This special will also feature a behind-the-scenes look at the Bachelor's casting process and an introduction to few of the ladies vying for Juan Pablo's heart.
Juan Pablo's turn as the Bachelor begins on Monday, January 6. Juan Pablo, 32, is a former professional soccer player from Venezuela with a great sense of humor and a sexy accent. Yes, please. And I'll have seconds.
Apparently ABC can only afford one Bachelor-franchise proof of success wedding at a time folks! And the first couple to get engaged is the first couple that gets to walk down the fantasy-rose-strewn televised aisle.
Earlier this week we announced that Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's wedding was going to be sending moving Bachelor lovestory montages into our television screens very soon. But there's another franchise star looking to get a made-for-TV wedding as well! Desiree Hartsock, otherwise known as the least popularBachelorette ever, was angling to get her own nuptials to Chris Siegfried on the TeeVee when she was told, not so fast!
“Desiree wasn’t originally on board with the idea of having a TV wedding, but after she thought about it, she realized that this was the perfect opportunity to launch her dream career as a bridal designer,” an source reveals to Life & Style. Oh – yes why not use your wedding not only to celebrate the love of your life but for an ulterior motive to launch your career. Aaahhh…love in the land of the famewhores!
Every once in a while, I have to give credit where credit is due when it comes to the reality TV stars I love to hate. I really (really, really) thought Emily Maynard would do everything in her power to remain in the spotlight following her stint as the Bachelorette. Much to my surprise – not so much!
It's been a full year since Emily and Jef Holm ended their engagement – can you believe it? – and nearly ten months since Emily gave Reality Tea anything to snark on. These days, Emily appears to be content spending time with her daughter, Ricki, and a new mystery man, as well as designing and blogging.
Chris Harrison made the announcement on Monday night's After the Final Rose special. The audience went cray cray for Juan Pablo! Chris said, "No guy has made a greater impact with less screen time," later adding, "We may need Dodgers stadium for the first episode."
Indeed! Juan Pablo, a 32-year-old former professional soccer player from Venezuela, is charming, sexy, and funny. He lives in Miami with his four-year-old daughter, Camila, and looks forward to his reign as Bachelor. Me too!
