Chris Soules Is Officially The Next Bachelor

In: Donovan, TV Shows

After Emily Maynard reject, Arie Luyendyk Jr., spilled the beans about the next Bachelor, ABC made it official.

Chris Soules, who was sent home right before the finale on Andi Dorman’s Bachelorette season, will be handing out roses for the dating show’s 19th season. The 32-year-old farmer from Iowa was easily the frontrunner, winning over the shows’ fans. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have a fall from grace like most of his predecessors. Juan Pablo Galavis and Ben Flajnik anyone?

“Absolutely, that’s why I am doing it. I believe in the process I believe in what I went through on the previous show and that’s why I am doing it I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t feel like that was a potential.” - Chris Soules

Chris has been engaged once before, but the seven-year relationship ended just months before he expected to walk down the aisle. Season 19 of The Bachelor will air in January 2015.

It’ll be interesting to see how many of the women are legitimately serious about moving from their respective homes to working on a farm. Andi can deny it all she wants, but I’m sure that’s the big reason why she dumped Soules. Do you agree? Excited for Chris to give out roses? Did producers make the right choice? Sound off below.

ABC Announces Bachelor In Paradise Cast

In: Donovan, TV Shows
bachelor-in-paradise-cast

After three seasons of Bachelor Pad, ABC took a break last year but vowed to return. Somewhat true to their word, the network is offering another series from the Bachelor franchise. But this time, they’re sending Bachelor and Bachelorette rejects to an isolated island. I’m sensing Temptation Island but without any committed couples. Here’s the official description.

Some of The Bachelor’s biggest stars and villains are back. They all left The Bachelor or The Bachelorette with broken hearts, but now they know what it really takes to find love, and onBachelor in Paradise they’ll get a second chance to find their soul mates. Contestants will live together in an isolated romantic paradise and, over the course of six episodes, we’ll follow these former bachelors and bachelorettes as they explore new romantic relationships. America will watch as they fall in love or go through renewed heartbreak.

Earlier today, the network announced most of the cast starring on Bachelor In Paradise. Why only most? Reportedly, three of the men appearing on the show are currently on The Bachelorette vying for Andi Dorfmann’s heart. Once they’re eliminated, ABC will officially announce their participation. Check out the revealed cast below.

I just knew Juan Pablo Galavis was going to do something during his stint as The Bachelor to turn me off. I might have to amend my 10 Hottest Bachelors List because of this. Who would’ve guessed that it wouldn’t be his antics on the actual show, but rather comments in the press that would uncover his douchey side.

Just like Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, Galavis made less-than-flattering comments about homosexuals in a recent interview. It’ll be interesting to see if his homophobic comments will affect the show’s ratings like it did to Duck Dynasty. The A&E reality show recently returned with millions less viewers for its Season 5 season premiere- 8.5 million versus 12 million for Season 4..

While speaking to a The TV Page reporter at an event Friday, Juan Pablo was questioned whether having a gay or bisexual lead would be a good idea for an upcoming season of The Bachelor. The former professional soccer player quickly said ‘no.’ He continued with the following:

“I respect them… but, honestly, I don’t think it’s a good example for kids to watch that on TV,” explained Galavis, who then reiterated he didn’t have issues with gay relationships. However, he continued with, “But obviously, people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there [are] fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having… two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense.”

“It would be too hard for TV,” he explained. “Too much, too much.” He continued to dig He then continued to dig himself deeper, adding “There’s this thing about gay people… it seems to me, and I don’t know if I’m mistaken or not… they’re more pervert in a sense… and to me the show will be too strong, too hard to watch on TV.”

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 eighteen 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 how new Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis compares with the rest. Since he made the list, I had to bid adieu to US Naval Officer, Andrew Baldwin, to make room.

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.

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.

Which Desiree Hartsock Reject Is The Next Bachelor?

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.
