It’s time: #TheBachelorette premieres tomorrow

The 12th season of The Bachelorette, starring Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher, is upon us. I’m looking forward to the madness and comedy–particularly given that I think we dodged a bullet with this whole situation.

If you have any doubts about ABC‘s choice of Bachelorette, please look up the perceived runner-up’s Snapchat. Annoying-ness quotient: 2,124,756 on a scale of 1-10. Trust me.

The Bachelor returns

A new season of The Bachelor is about to begin so this is me right now:

Was Ben my favorite?

Via ABC/JustJared

Nah, seems boring. Emma and Claire agree (listen here).

Ben is handsome but in a Ken doll kind of way. If something distinguishes him from your average bro, I haven’t seen it yet.

But I’ll be watching of course. I always do.

Of course, I’m not here for the right reasons. Unless you consider snark to be the right reason.



Here, here, here and here are some other recommended reading for show prep.


I went to After Paradise with @AbbyDraper and laughed my face off

On one of two recent LA trips (is it any wonder I am TIRED?!) I had the distinct pleasure of attending After Paradise with my Twitter bud @AbbyDraper thanks to our friend Millsy aka Rob Mills.

Although Abby and I have tweeted and emailed a lot, this was our first in-person meet-up. She did not disappoint. Abby is as hilarious and fun as she is here and here and here and here.

First we watched the East Coast Bachelor in Paradise feed with our beloved Millsy and some wine.

There will be wine

This is not a recap of The Bachelorette

Someone asked me “why don’t you write recaps of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette when you’re such an avid viewer?”

Good questions deserve good answers.KB

First (and foremost), I am a very, very lazy person. Continue reading

Why has The Bachelor been SO good this season?

If you had told me I would someday call Chris Soules‘ season must-see TV, I would have laughed in your face. I thought “Prince Farming” was more like Prince Snoring.*

But I’m hooked. Here we are in season 19 of The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise and amazingly, ratings are way up.

I struggled to identify what has made this season so good. Fortunately Kristin Dos Santos investigated.

E OnlineNice work, everyone. Especially you, Millsy.

*Let’s face it: I watch every season.


Five creepy things Chris Soules said that weren’t actually creepy

If you have been watching The Bachelor this season – which has been fantastic, by the way – you know Chris has a funny way with words. His blog for People Magazine only serves to supplement the broadcast show, and in writing.

The return of The Bachelor

My Monday nights are spoken for once again. Please don’t suggest we go to dinner¬†for the next few nights. I like dinner, and I probably¬†(maybe) like you. But the answer will be no.

The new Bachelor, Chris Soules, is a farmer from Iowa. He is looking for a wife to join him on the farm which, sadly, eliminated me from contention.¬†Well, that plus my age (old) and present physical condition (semi-sloppy). But mostly it’s my city slicker-ness that kept me from auditioning for this season. Continue reading
