Watch the Dumbest Dudefight to Ever Air on The Bachelorette

During last week’s episode of The Bachelorette, Kaitlyn’s obvious final two dudes, Shawn and Nick, had a pretty stupid fight.

Bachelorette Decides Honesty Is the Best Policy, Fucks and Tells

“It’s hard for me to admit it but we had sex,” Kaitlyn told Shawn during Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette, as we have known for weeks she would have to.

'Are You in Love With Me?': Bachelorette Kaitlyn Is Put on the Spot

Throughout this season of The Bachelorette, the rules that govern this world we know and love have been (sort of) thrown out the window, which has proven difficult for both viewers and contestants.

Kaitlyn Has S-E-X, Throws Bachelorette Universe Into Utter Disarray

Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette was bound to be the one when things would come to a head: Kaitlyn, already deemed by one gentleman to be only interested in making out with a bunch of dudes, followed the animal part of her nature and got busy with Nick Viall, setting herself up for even more cries of “Slut!”… » 6/23/15 10:50am 6/23/15 10:50am

Ah, Ian. The shining star of this season of The Bachelorette: tall; in possession of an excellent head shape; a former model; went to Princeton; is a former track star who survived a horrible car accident; does charity work; can sing. But don’t just believe me—let him tell you himself!

Bachelorette Says Goodbye to This Season's Villain, Hello to the Past

Reality shows are formulaic, and The Bachelorette is no exception to that rule. But Monday night’s episode of the show was all about trotting over old territory, whether that meant referencing how moments compared to others in Bachelor history, or literally bringing back several old contestants, like, Nick, of “if you… » 6/09/15 11:10am 6/09/15 11:10am

Sumo Butts and 'Villains Gotta Vil': Last Night Was Peak Bachelorette

Perhaps it’s the fact that I spent last week binge-watching UnREAL, the new show that’s a fictionalized version of The Bachelor, but it was difficult to watch Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette without being more overwhelmed than usual by how stunningly contrived the entire thing was.

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

Midday Drama in Hell's Kitchen on My Date With The Bachelorette

VERY FAR AWAY, NOT NEAR ANYTHING, New York. — Security in the Hell’s Kitchen club where I have come to observe and participate in the filming of an upcoming episode of The Bachelorette is as lax as the code of conduct in the show’s “Fantasy Suite”—the magniloquent name applied to an anonymous hotel room… » 4/15/15 1:25pm 4/15/15 1:25pm

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

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.
