UnREAL, the Television Show About Reality TV We Didn't Know We Needed

When our children’s children undoubtably take a look back at the shows we consumed circa 2015, they’ll see UnREAL, a new television show premiering on Lifetime Monday night—perfectly timed, you’ll see, to air right after The Bachelor finishes—as a show that couldn’t have been made at any other point in television… » 6/01/15 7:10pm 6/01/15 7:10pm

Bachelor Chris Soules and His Chosen Whitney Are No Longer Engaged

Sad news for Bachelor Nation: last season’s Bachelor Chris Soules is no longer engaged to Whitney Bischoff, the girl who promised she’d leave her job in Chicago where she worked at a fertility clinic to live in a town with a population of less than 500 people because she wanted to settle down and raise a family.

Two Bachelorettes Compete for a Drunk Suitor Who Jokes About Rape

Though host Chris Harrison and numerous contestants went to great lengths Monday evening to prove that the show’s decision to have two Bachelorettes was supremely “awkward,” the most awkward thing was the contestant they let through the door who was such a drunk asshole that he was sent home before he even got to pick… » 5/19/15 11:30am 5/19/15 11:30am

Se​an Penn and Charlize Theron Are Bachelor Fans and #TeamKaitlyn

Ultimate Bachelor stan/ABC employee Jimmy Kimmel had Sean Penn on his show Thursday night, and Penn went right in for the kill, asking Kimmel if he was a bigger fan of Britt or Kaitlyn, the two women who will be on the new-and-improved/probably horrible season of The Bachelorette. Not only is Sean Penn a fan of… » 3/13/15 2:20pm 3/13/15 2:20pm

The Bachelor Finale Tells an Uncomfortable Truth: Love Is Boring

It was fitting that the only mildly interesting moment of Monday's finale of The Bachelor didn't actually happen during the two hour finale. It didn't happen for the first 45 minutes of the After the Final Rose special either. The excitement of The Bachelor finale actually had nothing to do with Chris and his chosen… » 3/10/15 11:45am 3/10/15 11:45am

Watch Bachelor Contestant Britt Cry. And Cry. And Cry. And Cry.

There were a lot of fun moments during Monday night's episode of The Bachelor: The Women Tell All, which is the best episode of every season of this show (to use Bachelor-approved superlatives). "Crazy" Ashley S. made it clear that she's probably an actress pretending to be insane. Carly and Britt fought about the… » 3/03/15 11:30am 3/03/15 11:30am

What Awkward Horror Greeted the Virgin in The Bachelor's Fantasy Suite?

On Monday night's episode of The Bachelor, we went to the Fantasy Suite. This episode is always endlessly hyped but is always endlessly disappointing: it's not like you actually see anyone have sex or have deep conversations. At bare minimum there's some vague chatter and some kissing; at most there's some heavy… » 2/24/15 12:30pm 2/24/15 12:30pm

How Kelsey Out-Crazied All Other Bachelor Contestants

Until Monday's episode of The Bachelor, Kelsey Poe was the quiet one. A guidance counselor, she was best-described as demure, with a short bobbed haircut, subtle makeup and a penchant for tank-tops and jeans. Her look matched her tragic story: she's a widow, who lost her much-older husband a year and a half ago, quite… » 2/03/15 11:30am 2/03/15 11:30am

When Do Minorities Get Eliminated on The Bachelor?

The Bachelor, ABC's long-running television show that purports to show people trying to find someone to love, is many things, depending on the season: insane, boring, painful, glorious. But there is one thing that's always consistent: it and its siblings The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise and Bachelor Pad are as » 2/02/15 6:45pm 2/02/15 6:45pm

Blake Shelton's SNL Spoof of "The Bachelor" was Pretty Funny 

Blake Shelton hosted Saturday Night Live last night and turned in a pretty charming performance. The standout of the night was "Farm Hunk," a rural take on The Bachelor that featured all of SNL's women vying for the chance to give up their dreams and live in beautiful Iowa. It took a couple of nice swings at The… » 1/25/15 12:00pm 1/25/15 12:00pm
