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.

Sean Lowe is so full of shit. First he’s doing Dancing with the Stars despite having no interest in fame (because I guess he’s just a big fan of Bob Fosse or something), and now he swears that he and his chosen Bachelor winner and fiancee Catherine Giudici won’t be engaging in any rumpy pumpy before saying their vows. Uh, yeah, okay.
“I’m just so excited that the secret is out,” Lowe tells PEOPLE.
Adds Giudici: “Now, we can be a normal couple and hold hands in public!”
Hold hands they will, but Lowe and Giudici have vowed to save being intimate until after the wedding.
“From my perspective, I’ve lived life kind of selfishly for a long time,” says Lowe, a conservative Christian and born-again virgin. “Now, I’m going to try to live it the way I know to be right.”
As for his bride-to-be’s feelings on the topic? “I honor him,” she says.
Okay, I’m sorry, but I sort of feel like these two had sex way back on the night of the whole Fantasy Suite fiasco. Also, it’s not like he’s some random bro she’s just met and has barely spent any time with (oh wait…) – he’s her fiancé and when you are in that type of relationship and things get at all physical, it’s a bit hard to stop. I’m not saying that they can’t, or that it’s wrong if they actually are doing this – I’m just saying they’re most likely lying through their teeth and have been sleeping together since the show ended, at the very least. What do you think?

Sean Lowe of The Bachelor is a surprise addition to Dancing with the Stars. Announced this morning on Good Morning America, Mr. Lowe with dance partner Peta Murgatroyd will join luminaries Andy Dick and Wynonna Judd among others on season 16 of ABC’s reality dancing show.
AND I AM SO PUMPED.
Did you guys watch The Bachelor finale? Sean chose Catherine, who seems okay but barely got any screen time and isn’t nearly as much of an audience favorite as runner-up Lindsay. Sean also really, really didn’t want to break up with Lindsay but he had to because that’s the nature of the show yet he also liked Catherine but one of them had to go, so he told Lindsay, “I have no real reason to break up with you” and “I love you” and sent her on her way and then proposed to Catherine a few hours later. GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW.
He and Catherine are going to marry on TV. Bachelor Biceps wants to make something clear though:
I’ve always said I’m not looking for fame. In fact, I don’t like the fame aspect of The Bachelor or Dancing With the Stars. But when an opportunity like Dancing comes along, it’s too good to pass up. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I wouldn’t have taken it had Catherine not been OK with it. She’s fully supporting me. She’s in my corner. She’s going to be on this crazy ride with me.
Translation: Oh my God you guys they paid me so much money you have no freaking idea, I can’t even, you guys, you guys if I could show you this check you would understand, I can’t even, you guys.
On Bachelor Biceps surprise addition, Andy Dick said,
Oh Lord. If he has those guns and he’s got the dance moves, then watch out America.
Translation: Oh my God you guys I am going to have try THAT MUCH HARDER to keep everyone’s attention on me at all times, you guys, you guys, oh my God.
