With just three weeks until the premiere of The Bachelor season 16, ABC has released the photos of the 25 contestants vying for Ben Flajnik’s heart!
On the season opener, Ben, 29, a winemaker from Sonoma, meets his 25 potential soul mates as he begins his search for “true love.” And in a twist, Ben is taken aback on the first night when Sheryl, a sprite senior citizen, steps out of the limo and confesses she is madly in love with him. But according to the rumor mill, it appears Sheryl was simply there to introduce her granddaughter to Ben.
The ABC press release promises us some more interesting characters such as: “Erika, the young law student, informs Ben that the verdict is in and he is convicted of being sexy. Emily, the germ conscious epidemiologist, doesn’t miss a beat, quickly sanitizing both herself and Ben before grabbing the season’s first kiss. And in a questionable move, Anna decides that Ben should only get a look at her before she struts right by him and straight into the mansion. But what is her real motive? Lindzi arrives on horseback in time to intrigue Ben and capture his attention. And finally, Jenna, a New York blogger, breaking down into tears over early drama with fellow bachelorette Monica.”
The new season of The Bachelor returns to ABC on Jan. 2 (8/7c).

The finale of Tough Love 2 aired two nights ago with most of the ladies walking away from the show with what seemed to be true love; we now have the updates of each lady and their relationship status.
Surprisingly, majority of the ladies are no longer with the men they gave their rings to at the ring ceremony, but the good news is most of them are in new relationships and maintain that their love lives have changed for the better. The only woman that is still with the man she chose is actually Angel, the former stripper and single mom. Angel and Liz are also now living together in California.
There seems to be a recurring theme amongst the ladies, which is the men from the show acted differently once the cameras were gone, and most of them were not genuinely interested in pursuing a relationship.
Status With Man From Show – No Longer Together, Relationship Status Now – Single
What Happened After Show – Jason and I saw each other a few times after boot camp, but it never got serious and I haven’t dated anyone else since the show!
Status With Man From Show – No Longer Together, Relationship Status Now – In A Relationship
What Happened After Show – “After bootcamp, David and I both decided to just be friends for now. We absolutely plan on keeping in touch and visiting each other. He will definitely be a part of my life for a very long time, but I’m not sure he was ‘the one.’”
Last night was the Tool Academy reunion show and boy was there some more drama! We first find out that Margo, Robert and Karine would not be in attendance. Shawn decides to once again attack Mega about his relationship or non relationship with Margo which leads to Mega going off on Shawn and pretty much shutting him up.
Cameron and Clarence aka Celebrity take the stage, and we found out Celebrity is still the same old tool. He tries to get back in Cameron’s good graces but she brushes him off. We reported earlier that the rumor was Celebrity and Cameron were not an actual couple, but friends who decided to lie in hopes of winning the cash.
Krista and Jenna get into it again, and the quote of the night goes to Jenna!
Jenna – “Who are you calling white trash bitch when you have 2 kids, a boyfriend, a husband, and your boyfriend got fired from target!” Good one Jenna.
Krista and Tommy take the stage. Krista accuses Tommy of being unfaithful. She claims some girls were posting on onlines blogs that they had been intimate with Tommy. Tommy is given a lie detector which he fails. This leads to the biggest show down on the reunion. Krista walks off the stage, slapping Tommy in the process. Tommy denies cheating but it left to go back to the main stage alone to the audience’s applause.
Shawn takes the stage with both Aida and Jaimee. We find out that Shawn and Aida are no longer together. We’re guessing she finally saw him for the tool that he is. A random girl walks on to the stage, and claims to be pregnant by Shawn. Shawn admits this to be the truth and we find out Shawn might just be the biggest tool on the planet.
Jenna and Matsuflex say they are still dating and are happy to let us know their relationship has been consumated. Ashley and Josh are still together and happily married. They are presented with their $100,00o cash prize once again.
VH1′s Tool Academy reunion airs tonight and we have an 8 minute sneak peek below! It’s bound to be a juicy show as we find out one of the tools has a baby on the way by a woman that was not on the show with him.
Shawn is seen with both Aida and Jaimee. Plus things get really heated between Krista and Jenna once again. Margo, Rob, and Karine did not attend the taping. The show airs this morning at 10:30 am Eastern plus tonight on VH1 at 8:00 pm Eastern.
