Just in case you didn’t get the memo, the alphabet network has officially dubbed the first month of 2014, Juan-ary. At long last Bachelor nation, we have our first promo of Juan Pablo as ABC’s glorified florist. It has everything you’d expect from the dating show- crazy girls coming out of the limo, crying fits and of course, shirtless moments of our first ever Latin Bachelor. Caliente.
In addition to beginning Juan Pablo’s journey for love, ABC has plenty of Bachelor-related programming for the entire month. Things kick off with The Bachelor: Countdown to Juan Pablo on Sunday Jan 5 with the actual premiere the following day. For the next three Sundays, the following specials will air: The Bachelor: Behind the Scenes; The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories which will give updates on our favorite couples; and The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine’s Wedding. The latter will be the first live televised wedding of the dating franchise. Check out ABC’s first promo for Season 18 below.
For all those in need of a Bachelor fix, here’s a little something something to tide you over until Juan Pablo’s season premiering on Monday, January 6. Funny or Die enlisted recently-married Jesse Tyler Ferguson to front their parody of the long-running dating show. He plays faux gay bachelor trial attorney Bryden.
As you would expect, it’s wall-to-wall gayness coming from all directions. From George Takei channeling his inner Chris Harrison as host, to Lance Bass as one of the contestants looking for love, brace yourself for one homosexual rollercoaster ride. You haven’t seen a rose ceremony as dramatic as this before. Check out Bryden’s adventures below which includes the show’s signature limousine crying fits which is usually only reserved for rejects.
After 16 prior tries, The Bachelor finally got lucky with Season 17. A bachelor is actually tying the knot with the season’s winner. Jason Mesnick (Season 13) is the only other Bachelor to walk down the aisle, but he did it with the runner up, after dumping Melissa Rycroft on national television. So that doesn’t really count ;)
For awhile there, I didn’t think Sean Lowe or his intended Catherine Giudici were going to make it. With his Dancing With The Stars stint, I feared Lowe would follow the same path as fame-hungry Jake Pavelka. Alas, they’ve beaten The Bachelor odds and fallen love… for real.
The happy couple will tie the knot in a live telecast on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014 with Chris Harrison hosting of course. Reportedly, the two-hour telecast will feature popular Bachelor franchise couples. I’m sure original Bachelorette Trista Rehn will be there with her hunky fireman Ryan Sutter. Just in case you forgot how great Sean looks shirtless, refresh your memory below.
If you watched Monday night’s The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special, you have a pretty good idea who’s in the running to become the next Bachelor based on crowd reaction and attention given by Chris Harrison. Even though, several men on Desiree Hartsock’s season were clearly on the show purely to land the coveted gig, it’s one of the most unassuming ones who won the hearts of viewers. I thought I was alone in loving this guy, but it appears not. Find out who E! News is reporting was offered the gig and seriously considering it.
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.
Turns out the rumors and TMZ reports were true. Kristin Chenoweth is dating a former star of The Bachelor. In the most dramatic rose ceremony ever, Kristin picks someone NOT in my Top 10 Hottest Bachelors list. In fact, the diminutive Broadway star picked one of my least favorite Bachelors ever from the history of the ABC dating show. Oh Kristen, I expected more from you.
Chenoweth confirmed her new relationship with People magazine saying, “We have been spending a little time together.” The new couple have been spotted dining together in West Hollywood and at a cafe near this Bachelor’s home in Texas. The two reportedly met at an event in October. I wonder if he gave the former Pushing Daisies star roses on their first date or other flowers… daisies, perhaps? Find out who Kristin’s new beau is below.
It’s a little hard to believe but already, ABC’s hit show The Bachelor is about to embark on its 17th season set to air this coming January. The man all the women are dying to get their hands on is insurance agent and former fitness model, Sean Lowe. If you are a superfan of the series, you’ll know that Sean had his heart broken during Emily’s season of The Bachelorette. Now, its his turn to get his just desserts.
Already, ABC has released the names and photos of 24 bachelorettes who will all by vying for Sean’s love and affection. But, only one of them will win his heart and get a ring on it at the end of the journey. Sean is smokin’ hot and the nicest guy so ABC didn’t hesitate to find some of the hottest girls to put in the house for him. Check out all the ladies’ photos and bios and vote for you favorite bachelorette below.
Tonight, the final rose will be handed out to close this season’s chapter of “The Bachelorette” with Emily Maynard. Following an exciting summer of hotties and hookups in “The Bachelor Pad,” girls and gays will be glued to their TV’s this fall to catch a new sexy Bachelor woo 25 girls into his arms and to fall in love. But, just who will ABC pick as their next leading man?
For the longest time, rumors have been circulating that Roberto Martinez would be jumping back in the saddle after his recent breakup with Aly Fedotowsky. However, it’s being said that Aly is urging and begging Roberto not to do it. While Roberto would be the perfect hottie for the show, another Bachelorette cast-off is in the running to take his place. If the rumor is true, then I am all for it!
Interestingly enough, tonight’s Final Rose Special which is usually pre-taped for ABC is being broadcast live for the first time in the show’s history. Why? According to reports, Chris Harrison has confirmed that events have transpired since the proposal and engagement that may have changed Emily’s feelings. If that’s the case, I have a hunch that her dismissal of this sexy man could be the reason she’s holding back from spending time with the one who actually proposed to her. So, if she announces feelings for him tonight on the show, would he accept or say adios and take on 25 single ladies? Find out who I am talking about below.
