How France Ruined The Bachelor

The title is slightly misleading. Technically France did not ruin the Bachelor franchise. France only ruined my ability to recap the current(ly ending tonight) season of Bachelor. Unclear? My suggestion: grab a nice bottle of bordeaux (St. Emilion, perhaps?) and attempt to follow me. The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have been more impactful in my life ...

Bachelor Colton – Episode 4 Recap & Fashion

Episode 4 was a roller-coaster. In addition to the standard producer and editor-induced drama, there were some very revealing segments that changed my opinion about two of the women (albeit only very briefly for one of them), and an emotionally charged disclosure of one woman's horrific sexual assault. It was a lot to take in, ...

Bachelor Colton – Episode 3 Recap & Fashion

Episode 3 and still not sure how I feel about this season of The Bachelor. Colton's appealing enough. There are a few women who I'm sort-of pulling for. But the villains are, as usual, over-the-top in their villainy, which is more irritating than entertaining. And mostly I want more humor. There's a guy dating over ...

Bachelor Colton – Episode 2 Recap & Fashion

Thankfully, Episode 2 was only two hours long and did not include screaming fans behind past season Bachelor/ettes hanging out in middle America. Don't get me wrong, I grew up in the Midwest and love it dearly, but I don't want to watch someone else's watch party. I digress. This is the Bachelor Episode 2 ...

Bachelor Bracket – Season 23 – Colton Underwood

Somehow it's already that time again: in just one week the (latest) Bachelor, Colton Underwood, will be greeting the 23rd round of women spilling out of a series of limos at the Bachelor mansion. Or wait, didn't the mansion suffer damage in the fires? Well, they'll be spilling out of limos somewhere. Yep, time to ...

Bachelorette Becca: Episode 3 Recap & Fashion

Episode 2 left me frustrated and feeling manipulated. That feeling was replicated at the beginning of Episode 3 but quickly morphed into annoyance. Despite an actual dramatic issue in this episode, producers opted to completely fabricate a storyline that fit their version of drama. Look, everyone knows they script the ish out of this show, ...

Bachelorette Becca – my picks for Season 14

If you missed the blank Bachelorette Bracket for Season 14, the empty bracket is still available here. However, with Episode 2 just an hour away (EST), it's time for me to reveal my completed bracket. First, a few important notes: 1. The numbers I use for each week are based on the traditional Bachelor/ette format. Obviously, these are ...

Bachelorette Becca: Episode 1 Recap and Fashion
