“Everyone on the show is just so over him and cannot wait for this season to be over,” a source connected with the dating competition series told us.
“His anti-gay comment happened the weekend of Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici’s wedding which completely overshadowed all the hard work everyone put in for it and practically ruined Sean and Catherine’s special weekend.”
The insider added that producers and crew members have never been so ready for a season of the Bachelor to end.
“It has not been anyone’s favorite, that’s for sure.”
Nor mine. I really think he’s the worst they’ve ever had. Note to producers: an accent is not a personality.
Have you been watching? DISCUSS! BACHELOR POST!

Nothing says true love and romance quite like a live, 2-hour televised wedding event. Just ask Kim Kardashian! Following in her great footsteps, The Bachelor‘s Sean Lowe and fiancée Catherine Giudici actually did go through with tying the knot last night on ABC. Of course, no one was really watching since the Grammys were on, as well, but no matter. It was a celebration of love!
The ceremony was officiated by Sean’s dad. Here were their vows (from People):
“The first time that I saw you, you were like a light to my bug. I had to find you. You mesmerize me with how brightly you shine,” Catherine told Sean at the altar. “Sometimes I feel like I’m going to explode by how much I love you … I’m completely consumed by you … I promise to love you after my heart bursts … You are my dream and my reality.”
“From the moment I met you I wanted more. You had me hooked from the beginning and I didn’t want to let you go,” Sean then said. “We met in the strangest way possible … I know that we met on The Bachelor so that I could fall in love with my best friend … Every day I am encouraged by your love and your selflessness … I’m going to love you for eternity.”
Oh, man. I give them a year, 18 months tops. Especially when you consider that Catherine said this after getting a present from her future husband:
“I cannot wait to wear the lingerie Sean bought me on our wedding night! It’s like fancy icing for my body. As a wife, I will definitely treat him a lot. I’m going to be able to let out my ‘grown sexy’ on him anytime I want, or anytime he wants!”
Uh… “fancy icing for my body”? Dear God. Let out your “grown sexy”? I just can’t with this. Uh… congrats to the happy (for now) couple, I suppose.

The Bachelor is coming back pretty soon, guys. Are you excited? I know I am. And I mean that, because The Bachelorette was a trainwreck and I’m hoping for more “choo choo!” to come. Your Bachelor is Juan Pablo Galavis, a reject from the previous Bachelorette season. According to E Online, “The Bachelor’s 18th season premieres Monday, Jan. 6 at 8 p.m.”
What do you think? Is Juan Pablo your type? (Is “sexy Latin soccer player” your type?) Will you be watching?
Here’s a video to introduce you to Mr. Galavis:

Sean Lowe, of last year’s Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars suckfest, is going to marry his boring fiancé in January — on live TV. They’ve picked an actual date, too: Jan. 26, 2014. People also reports that Mr. Lowe thinks it’s all, “very exciting” and that “Watching Catherine walk down the aisle will be the best moment of my life.”
I think those of us who follow the Bachelor/Bachelorette series are surprised that it’s actually happening. At this point, I don’t think they could back out if they wanted to. They probably signed contracts with ABC. I like that Sean tries to make it sound like it’s a totally normal thing to have your wedding televised on a major network and like it was their decision:
I think it’s only natural to have it on TV seeing as how our relationship started. This will be a cool opportunity to share the most special day of our lives with all the people who have been invested in us along the way.
No lies over here, I’m gonna watch.

I don’t actively watch The Bachelor or any of its other incarnations (The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad), so I don’t really remember Gia Allemand from the show’s 14th season. The 29-year-old model was rushed to hospital earlier this week after being found unconscious in her home by NBA boyfriend Ryan Anderson from the New Orleans Pelicans.
After it was revealed this morning that she suffered loss of brain and organ function, she was taken off life support and passed away from what appears to be a suicide (though this has yet to be confirmed).
Here’s her publicist’s statement:
“[She] passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other life-long friends by her side. As a practicing Christian, Gia did receive the sacrament of last rites.
“Loved ones and fans will remember Gia Allemand as a caring woman who loved her family and was well-known for her compassion towards animals and mission to rescue homeless pets. Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming in another official statement once available.
“On behalf of the family, we sincerely ask for privacy at this time.”
Whether or not you know who she is, it’s always sad to see someone so young and in need of help take their own life – or at the very least, lose it, regardless of the cause.

I’m sure you remember Emily Maynard not only from The Bachelor, but also her own season of The Bachelorette, during which she got engaged… twice. She broke off both of those relationships, OBVIOUSLY, and is now saying, “Eh, it’s probably not all that possible to find love on a TV show that’s completely set up by producers from the word ‘go’.” Basically, it was nice to get all that money and the fame from the show, but it’s all bullshit and she knows it.
From The Charlotte Observer:
“I’ve struggled with that a lot in my own experiences, and wondering what was real life and what was reality TV,” she said. “But I know that both times I did fall in love. Obviously it’s possible – I went to a wedding in December [between Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum from The Bachelorette].
“I think it’s pretty slim chances, but I do think it’s possible. It just wasn’t for me.”
Yeah, it took you two entire seasons to realise it “wasn’t for you”, right? That must’ve come after the checks cleared. Get this woman out of my face. You don’t go on TV to find a lasting relationship anymore than you go in the sun to stay pale. You know right well you’re not going out there to find the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. It’s just not going to happen.
