Ben Higgins Officially Named As The Bachelor

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Bachelor nation, meet your Season 20 Bachelor.

It’s not exactly earth-shattering news. Though, props to ABC and Chris Harrison for trying to trick us with that stunt on After Paradise. Perennial runner-up Nick Viall sat with Harrison discussing his quest for love. After a quick exchange, Viall left the couch and along came Ben Higgins.

Higgins was the clear front-runner the second Kaitlyn Bristowe let him go. He was a fan favorite all season long. The only thing that was potentially preventing him from getting the coveted spot was his age. At 26-years-old, the software salesman is one of the youngest Bachelors ever. Season 5’s Jesse Palmer was also 26. Both are five years younger than the average Bachelor age of 31.

Even though he’s on the younger side, Higgins comes off very mature and level-headed. In fact, he reminds me of another well-liked recent Bachelor- Sean Lowe. He was only two years younger at 28 and he’s only one of two to walk down the aisle from the men’s side of the franchise.

Are you happy that Ben H. got the slot over Viall, Ben Z, Josh Murray and other rumored candidates? Personally, I was hoping Chris ‘cupcake’ Strandberg would get the gig. The dentist is beyond cute. Check out a couple shirtless pics of Ben below.

It always fascinates me how many people secretly love watching The Bachelor franchise, especially which celebrities love the guilty pleasure. Who knew Sean Penn was such a STAN!!!

When producers of the ABC dating show revealed the Season 11 twist of two Bachelorettes, both Anna Kendrick and shockingly, Penn, chimed in. They echoed most viewers sentiments, hating the twist and believe fan favorite Kaitlyn Bristowe should’ve received the gig hands down over Britt Nilsson.

Reality Steve who has a near-perfect track record of spoiling the results, has uncovered which lady was voted in by the 25 suitors. During the Live After The Rose special, it was quite clear Kaitlyn was everyone’s choice, with slight boos heard when Britt’s name was announced. But would horny single men feel the same or was Kaitlyn merely loved by women. Find out the results below and another surprising twist.

Adorable puppies and a shirtless Scott Eastwood. Sign me up!!!

You thought those crazy women on The Bachelor were vicious. They have nothing on these bitches. These canines have their claws paws out.

On the next season of The Bachelor, Eastwood tries to find a new best friend. Naturally, the 28-year-old shows off his toned physique in the process. Which adorable dog gets a rose, or should I say bone? Maybe it’s a cat instead. Shocking twist anyone? Watch the Funny or Die clip below.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Is The Gay Bachelor

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

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.

Sean Lowe Finally Sets Wedding Date

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan, TV Shows

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.

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.

The Bachelor: Who Are The Ten Hottest Bachelors?

In: Donovan, TV Shows

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.
