Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
It’s your daily dose of Bachelorette with a heaping side of Harrison…add some Bachelor Pad for dessert sprinkled with just the right amount of hook ups, implants, and shame. Let’s dig in, shall we?
The always lovely and good-natured Chris Harrison, host of all three train wrecks love quests, opened up to The Huffington Post about his favorite couples through the years. He reveals, “Trista and Ryan [Sutter] were just lightning in a bottle. I don’t know if we’ll ever capture anything like that again. That one will always stand out.” The couple was the first of the franchise to actually wed (on television, of course), and now they have two children together.
Another of Chris’ favorite love birds were our current Bachelorette Emily Maynard and two-time BachelorBrad Womack. He tells the site, “I felt like the two of them were meant to be and it was gonna work. When they broke up, I was really sad.” Well, you certainly know if you’re tuning into this season that Em has stolen Chris Harrison’s heart along with those of her suitors.
“Everybody’s had this appetite for her,” Chris continues. “She’s so contagious. You just want to care for her, you want to root for her, you want her to do well, and that really makes for a perfect Bachelorette. When her name came up [to be the next Bachelorette], we started bantering about and it was a unanimous home run. It’s very rare that it’s unanimous.”
Every season of the Bachelorhas that one super cray overly emotional contestant and unfortunately for Jenna Burke, she was “that girl” this season!
Ben Flajnik ended up eliminating the NYC blogger last week following two episodes of a cry-fest. In a recent interview with the press, Jenna, 27, reveals she doesn’t blame Ben for sending her packing.
“Watching it, I wanted to shake myself and say, get a grip,” says Jenna. “I would have sent myself home, to be honest,” she says adding that she was able to laugh at herself while watching the episodes. Glad to know she was laughing with the rest of us!
Jenna goes on to blame a bad break up for her being overly emotional and vulnerable. “It was just a rocky start. A lot of people react differently. I think we all have our own insecurities. I apparently cry and other girls come off more aggressive.” She adds: “Everyone always talks about strategy. I had no strategy. I thought, am I supposed to have one? I thought this was about finding a connection.”
Calling her time on the show “one big therapy session,” Jenna, however, owns up to her behavior on the show. “I’m owning it. I cried a lot. I’m human. My emotions and nerves got the best of me. But… I have no regrets,” she says.
And her thoughts on Ben today? “I think Ben is a great guy. It’s tough to be in that situation with all these women vying for your attention. He maintained his sanity and went with the flow,” says Jenna.
Jenna also shared her thoughts on two troublemakers of the most controversial contestants thus far, a.k.a Courtneyand Blakeley. “The girl does have a heart. But I think we all have our insecurities. The way Blakeley deals with her insecurities is she’s more aggressive. She can only stay strong for so long,” Jenna says of Blakeley. When it comes to Courtney, she adds: “I just know she’s a model. She plays with her hair a lot. After watching the show, I think there’s a serious case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”
Moving on to tonight’s new episode as a mystery woman will be coming on to the show to try to win Ben’s heart!
According to OK! magazine, the mystery woman is not an ex-girlfriend of Ben’s but rather the ex of former BachelorBrad Womack! Yes Shawntel Newton, who was dumped by Brad after the hometown dates on his season, comes on the show to fight for Ben’s love. Seriously what are these women seeing in Ben that we’re not???
“It’s Shawntel, and I’m here to date Ben,” Shawtel announces to the girls in a preview of tonight’s episode. “You don’t know Ben!” one of the girls screams. It appears poor Shawntel will be receiving a very negative reception from the other ladies! How will Ben feel about this surprise?
We will find out tonight (8/7c) on ABC.
