The Bachelor: Chelsea Didn’t See This Coming

May 16, 2008

Chelsea has spoken! And she’s doing just fine, folks, so don’t worry! She revealed all to (Who needs After the Final Rose? Not us!) Here’s some highlights from Chelsea’s interview: (more…)


The Bachelor: Matt Gets His Monkey

May 12, 2008

It’s Shayne! Last night on The Bachelor, Matt Grant popped the question to his “monkey,” 22-year-old actress Shayne Lamas. (Pet names are cute and all, but I dunno whether I want anyone calling me “monkey” during a marriage proposal.) Shayne, in a canary yellow dress, happily accepted the whomping huge diamond Matt presented her. But before that, Matt had to ditch Chelsea, a moment made more unpleasant when Chelsea lost her cool and trashed Shayne. “To me, she was the falsest person here,” Chelsea declared. (Bitter much?) Chelsea, who looked ready for the altar (or the prom) in a white gown and severe updo, later summed up her feelings about Matt’s decision in this way: “He’s a fool. He is a fool.” But when it comes to love—and reality television—-aren’t we all?

Oh and another thing: No “After the Final Rose,” I guess? There was no mention of it. Hm.

Tell me: Do you think Matt made the right choice? Were you surprised?

The Bachelor: Decision ’08

May 12, 2008

Tonight’s the night! Finally, we’ll find out who will be our Mrs. Grant-in-waiting and whose dreams of marrying an English gentleman will end tonight. I actually like both Shayne and Chelsea so I guess I won’t be horribly disappointed UNLESS Matt pulls the old “I choose me” which has become a sad possibility ever since Jen Schefft and Brad Womack ruined everything for everyone. But I don’t think Matt would do that to us. He’s British. He has manners.

It’s no secret that my heart belongs to Shayne. Oh sure, she’s too young and ditzy and high-maintenance, and the Matt-Shayne union would probably be destined for the typical Bachelor split in about six months, but I can’t help it: I like the girl (plus, I don’t have to marry her). Chelsea is lovely and (somewhat) more mature than Shayne. She’s certainly a better arm-wrestler and probably a better life partner for Matt but she lost me somewhere between her hand-holding phobia and her “night dress.”

Meet you back here tomorrow to discuss it all! Happy viewing!

The Bachelor Enjoys Toying With Us

May 2, 2008

So buried in the back of Us Weekly (don’t they recognize really important news? ha) is a charticle comparing Chelsea and Shayne, with some comments from Matt on both ladies. Here’s Matt on Chelsea: “She’s very vibrant and outgoing. I love that.” And on Shayne: “Our relationship was comfortable. We had easy conversation.” Hm. Well, I was all set to read into his use of present tense to describe Chelsea and past tense to describe Shayne BUT he does the same thing in reverse a little further down in the piece. Damn you, you cagey Brit. Over at the Entertainment Weekly blog, they seem to think Chelsea has this thang wrapped up. I thought Shayne had the advantage, but now I think I may be a victim of clever editing again.

I’ll see you back here next week when we parse “The Women Tell All.” Will Amanda be made to answer for her d-bag comment and forced to awkwardly confront Matt yet again, as Chris Harrison prods from her what little dignity she has left? (Uh, probably.) Will Pinchy Face Robin make her pinchy face? (Clearly.) Will Ashlee break into song? (She’d better not.) Will Carri tear apart a beer can with her teeth? (Here’s hoping!)
