Quite a bit to get to right now since you actually haven’t heard from me in per week. There’s a purpose for that. I’m transferring in two weeks. Not far. Nearly 5 minutes from the place I'm now. However as any of you recognize, transferring is simply in regards to the worst factor on this planet by way of all of the issues you must do for it. So whereas I’d acquired details about the “Bachelorette” since filming started final Saturday evening, I simply figured I’d give it multi function area right now right here within the column and on the podcast, relatively than area it out. Simply been busy with getting issues so as, throwing out trash, boxing issues up, and so forth. So the primary 20 minutes of right now’s podcast I discuss in regards to the correction of Connor being on the season, debunk the gossip that’s on the market in regards to the present, inform you what the format goes to be, and fill you in on the place they’re headed this season earlier than hometowns. Then, Martin the butler from “Joe Millionaire” joins me to speak about how he acquired solid, his Rod Stewart parody band, what he felt his function was on the present, and far, far more. Beneath is a written abstract of the primary 20 minutes of the podcast.
You may take heed to right now’s podcast on plenty of platforms, however you too can tune in by clicking the participant beneath:
(SPOILERS) I start by correcting the Connor casting from final week, debunking a few of the gossip surrounding the “Bachelorette” season, inform you what I do know thus far and what’s developing this season by way of hometowns and journey. Then Martin joins me (21:46) to speak about how he acquired solid because the butler on “Joe Millionaire,” his background as a singer in a Rod Stewart parody group, how he dealt with his function as a butler, navigating Steven & Kurt’s relationship, & a lot, far more.
With filming beginning 5 days in the past, as I stated final week, since that is the primary time the US present has ever had two leads all through the entire season, we wouldn’t know something till filming started. As soon as it did, I used to be positive I’d begin listening to stuff and I’d relay it to you. There’s been a ton of gossip and hypothesis on what individuals have been saying was gonna occur this season and, properly, none of it's true:
-Gossip that every lady would get her personal season inside a season. Improper.
-Gossip that there wouldn’t be a primary evening rose ceremony. Improper.
-Gossip that there can be 4 hometown dates whole and every lady would get two. Improper.
We’ll get to these in a minute, however first wanna speak about what I posted final Friday, and that was that Connor the Cat, Connor Brennan from Katie’s season and Paradise, was gonna be on this Bachelorette season. Clearly quite a lot of you noticed his response on Twitter to that publish, additionally him being in attendance final Saturday evening down in San Diego at Hunter’s 15 12 months sobriety get together. Clearly, Connor will not be on this season. That info I used to be given was flawed. What’s humorous is, even now figuring out he’s not on the season, I’m nonetheless kinda shocked. The data I used to be given actually made me suppose that he was gonna be on. Clearly I can’t get into what it was or who instructed me, however simply understand it wasn’t carried out maliciously. Or wasn’t carried out for clicks. I reported what I believed to be true primarily based on info I used to be given. It occurred to be flawed.
Connor began getting quite a lot of shit on social media as soon as I reported he was occurring the present which sucked, however I’m sorry, I can't management what the trolls say. My report was simply that he’d be on the present. I didn’t provide an opinion, I didn’t say “What a loser,” “Why him,” “What’s he doing,” and so forth. I simply stated that Connor was going to be on the present and seems he wasn’t. I don’t know why that become an abundance of hate thrown his means which THEN become it being my fault. What? Whereas the data was incorrect, the data itself wasn’t damaging in any respect, nor did I put any damaging slant on it. Put it this manner, if the data WAS true, and Connor was gonna be on the present, it nonetheless would’ve elicited the identical damaging response that it acquired. So if now I’m supposed to regulate the ideas and actions of trolls on the web, I would as properly simply by no means write one other phrase once more. If I had adopted up my publish by slamming Connor, saying he’s an fool for occurring, nobody needs to see him, and so forth., THEN individuals would completely 100% have a proper to say the damaging response he was getting was began by me. I didn’t do any of that as a result of I didn’t care both means if Connor was on or not. I used to be simply reporting what I believed to be true, and it turned out it wasn’t.
Give it some thought: If it WAS true, why would Connor being on the present within the first place garner a lot negativity? Verify yourselves individuals. Who cares if he would’ve been on? Why did that make individuals wish to spew nasty issues at him? What’d he do to you? Final weeks response is an ideal instance of why I name this fanbase Poisonous Bachelor Nation. Actually individuals flying off the deal with and attacking Connor for, on the time, pondering that he’d simply be showing on the present. I don’t get it and by no means will. However please, don’t put this on me. Whereas the data itself was incorrect, the negativity spewed at him will not be my doing in any respect. I didn’t encourage it, I’ve actually been railing in opposition to it for over a 12 months now, and I’ve regularly known as out this present’s poisonous fan base and instructed them to sit back on the contestants. However per normal, it’s in a single ear out the opposite. I’ve modified my protection and remedy of the contestants within the final 12 months, possibly a few of you must too.
In order for a few of the gossip relating to this season, lets dive into that. This notion that every lady was getting her personal season inside a season? I’m undecided I even know what meaning. I feel that possibly they have been saying proper from the get go Rachel would have her personal males and Gabby would have hers they usually’d be confined to these guys all season. Properly that’s not it. It’s positively extra free flowing than that. Sort of in the identical line as “Joe Millionaire,” each man in the home, as of now, has the power thus far each girls and vice versa.
Sure, there was a primary evening rose ceremony. I don’t know all the eliminations however I used to be instructed it wasn’t your normal 7 or 8 eliminations. Probably the most they may’ve began with is 33 since I reported that Corbin and Koy have been positively minimize earlier than the season began. So possibly others have been minimize as properly and we began with someplace between 30-32, undecided but. However no matter we began with, I don’t consider 7 or 8 have been minimize on the primary evening per normal.
The format in previous seasons whereas they’re nonetheless in LA has been: 2 group dates and one 1-on-1 earlier than journey. Then as soon as journey began, the lead would get two 1-on-1s and a bunch date. Thats totally different this season now that now we have two leads.
For episodes 2 and three in LA, that are the primary dates of the season since episode 1 is evening 1 with the limo entrances and the rose ceremony, it’s one group date, then every girl will get a 1-on-1. Group date was Monday, it rained closely in LA so I consider no matter that they had deliberate was moved inside. Rachel’s 1-on-1 was Tuesday, Gabby’s was yesterday, and rose ceremony #2 is tonight. I don’t know who was on these dates but. After I do I’ll let you recognize.
Then tomorrow can be one other group date with each girls, a 1-on-1 Saturday, a 1-on-1 Sunday, rose ceremony #3 on Monday, then they go away for Europe on Tuesday.
Final week I instructed you I knew one of many locations they have been heading this season and that was France. I additionally talked about the rumor in regards to the Virgin Voyage cruise that’d been linked to this present and the way I hadn’t heard something or confirmed it was the “Bachelorette” it was getting used for. I can now. After they go away LA, they may fly to UK Portsmouth and board the Virgin Voyage cruise, and that can be their transportation and lodging whereas in Europe.
After they go away UK Portsmouth, they may dock at Le Havre, France. After I noticed that, I had no thought the right way to pronounce it. So in case you actually wanna hear me butcher the shit out of “Le Havre,” go take heed to the podcast. Even after googling this, I nonetheless struggled:
So France can be episode 4. From France, the cruise will then take them to Bruges, Belgium (one other metropolis I had no thought the right way to pronounce) for episode 5, then on to Amsterdam for episode 6. So the dates will nonetheless occur in these international locations, they’re simply not staying in inns after they go there. Solid and crew are all staying on the cruise for these 3 stops. Needs to be fascinating and positively one thing totally different they’ve by no means carried out.
There'll solely be these 6 areas (3 eps in LA, 3 in Europe) earlier than hometowns. When hometowns occur, they are going to be going to a break up crew. Hometowns can be final week of April going by the calendar. I don’t know what number of there can be for every, however on a traditional season with one lead, hometowns are filmed like this:
Hometown, time off, Hometown, time off, Hometown, time off, Hometown, rose ceremony.
For Gabby and Rachel, nevertheless many hometowns every get, it should nonetheless be filmed the identical means, however every of them can be filming hometowns on the identical day, clearly in several cities with a break up crew until they've one man they each need of their closing 3/4. So let's imagine April twenty fourth is a Hometown filming day (simply doing the mathematics, it ought to be someplace round that point), Gabby can be filming hers someplace and Rachel can be filming hers someplace else on the identical day. It can both be 3 or 4 hometowns for every. I’ll know extra as we get nearer. However this gossip they have been solely getting two every is unquestionably flawed. Unsure the place that information got here from.
Only for the document, zero individuals have reported something of what I simply posted. Maintain that in thoughts whenever you begin seeing it plastered all over the place now. Similar ol’, identical ol’.
I don’t know the place overnights and closing rose ceremony are being filmed but, however as soon as I do, I’ll let you recognize. However that’s the format and each place they’ll be touring to up via hometowns. Clearly because the season continues filming, something new I hear I’ll be including on all my social media platforms, so observe me there. Now, again to bane of my existence: packing. Have an ideal Wrestlemania weekend.
