January is here and you know what that means. It’s time for ABC’s guilty pleasure dating show to return. That’s right, I’m talking about The Bachelor. Yup, I’m a glutton for punishment and enjoy this often cringe-worthy reality show. For me, it’s not so much about being a hopeless romantic and hoping true love is found. But rather, it’s the “journey” that’s exciting to watch. I’m not talking about the over-the-top dates either, but mostly the seemingly sane women go crazy. What possesses a woman to cry their eyes out over a guy they’ve known for just a couple of days and in some instances a couple of hours, is beyond me. It’s so silly, yet so riveting to watch.
While most of the guys aren’t worth shedding a tear for, there are a few that are definitely worth getting involved in a catfight over. I’ve gone through all sixteen seasons (can you believe there have been that many) and ranked the Top 10 Hottest Bachelors to ever give out roses on the ABC show. I will admit, I haven’t watched all the seasons but watched my fair share. Check out my updated rankings below and see if you agree with my choices. You might be surprised on a couple of omissions. See where new Bachelor Sean Lowe compares with the rest.
Sundays here at Homorazzi.com are typically the day we try to give insight to our personal lives. Admittedly, I’m not as forthcoming with my life as say Patrick or Tyrell, but I’m going to make a concerted effort to change that. Think of today as a pre-New Years resolution. Moving forward on Sundays, I’m going to talk more about my life. For the remainder of this year, I’ll be recapping memorable moments from 2011. Interspersed with all my personal ramblings, I’m also going to introduce you to a few of my very talented friends. Being the social butterfly and traveler that I am, I’ve met some pretty amazing people over the years. I thought today would be the perfect day to start my Homorazzi Friends series.
This past Friday, a friend of mine held a viewing party for his debut on national television. Mark Tagulao a confectionery master, unbeknownst to me, made it on “Recipes To Riches“, a competitive reality series, on The Food Network (Canada) hosted by that tasty former Bachelor Jesse Palmer. There, Canadian home cooks battle to have their original recipes become a President’s Choice product and sold at grocery stores across the nation. Each week a different trio of cooks compete in a specific category for a prize of $25,000 and also become eligible to win the grand prize of $250,000.
My friend Mark competed in the “Frozen Treats” episode. He created a delicious ice cream cake with green and earl grey tea which he called “Teopolitan Ice Cream Cake“. Don’t you just love the play-on words with Neopolitan ice cream? For the viewing party, Mark along with one of his competitors made us a batch of their dessert seen in the episode. Truly awesome to taste their delectable treats. Obviously, I’m a little biased to Mark since he’s my friend, but his was truly delicious. I’m not going to spoil the episode results for you, but I’ve embedded the episode below just in case you wanted to watch it.
