An update on the donut situation. Within 2 hours of posting my column yesterday, I had at least 5 emails from people telling me that I should try vegan donuts, including two people who specifically asked me, “Is the vegan donut store you’re talking about Vegan Treats in Bethelem, PA? You HAVE to try them.” Yes, that is the store that contacted me, and since there’s been such an insistence that I try these apparently delicious donuts, I have emailed the owner back and asked for a box to be sent. They emailed me back this morning and the donuts are on their way. Oh gosh. Lets just keep this on the down low. I don’t need Miss Chocolate Bar, Miss Glazed Twist, Miss Chocolate Rainbow Sprinkle, and Mrs. Cinnamon Roll (yes, she’s married), to know I’m cheating on them. Wouldn’t be good. I’ll let you know what I think of the donuts after I taste them.

A quick moment of silence this morning for Conrad Bain (aka Mr. Drummond from “Diff’rent Strokes) … Continue reading →

January 16th, 2013 | 3 Comments | Posted in Reader Emails, The Bachelor 17 - Sean The Bachelor Sean Recap Including Clips from Jimmy Kimmel & My Interview with Susie Meister 42

Wanna hear something funny? So last week in my column when talking about Catherine’s vegan blog that she writes, I made reference to the fact that you can feel free to shoot me if you ever catch me eating a vegan donut. Lo and behold at the end of last week, I got an email from a vegan treat place in Pennsylvania telling me that they are a fan of the column and would gladly send me a box of vegan donuts just to try out. Here’s the problem: I like regular donuts waaaaaaaaay too much to ever think for a second I’ll enjoy eating a vegan donut. So I politely rejected their offer, although much appreciated, I just can’t bring myself to cheat on my chocolate bar, chocolate rainbow sprinkles, and glazed twist friends. Sorry. But hey, if Winchells or Dunkin Donuts wanna hook me up, you know where to reach me.

So the #1 thing I’ve been asked since last night on Twitter or email is Sean’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. If … Continue reading →

Tags: The Bachelor, Sean Lowe Comments 1 Sean Lowe on The Bachelor: Emotionally, Physically Exhausting! by Free Britney at January 14, 2013 10:54 am

Being The Bachelor isn't what it's cracked up to be for a guy. Well, it is and it isn't. There are still 26 women, often bikini-clad, desperate for your attention.

Still, Sean Lowe says that's more taxing than you might think.

The 29-year-old Dallas native is just one week into reliving his journey, and says it was more physically and emotionally draining than he ever expected.

"It wasn't an easy decision, because when the producers initially approached me, I was still getting over Emily [Maynard] and that was so emotionally taxing,” he said.

"[But] I felt like I owed it to myself to give it one more chance."

Is Catherine Giudici The Bachelor's front-runner in Season 17?

She certainly make a strong impression in Monday's premiere, lighting up Sean Lowe's face the moment they met. Obviously, she accepted a rose later that night.

Catherine Giudici: The Bachelor Deleted Scene

How far will she make it on the ABC reality show this season? The Bachelor spoilers we've posted hint at the possible outcome (follow the link if you dare).

No matter how it plays out, she'll be a great catch for someone.

A graphic designer at Amazon in Seattle by day, Catherine Giudici dabbles in food writing on the side. Yup, her side project is blogging about vegan recipes!

In an interview and photo shoot at the Bachelor mansion in Agoura Hills, Calif., Sean Lowe stripped down for In Touch and opens up about being The Bachelor.

“I’m very hopeful that I’ll meet a great girl," said the 29-year-old Texan.

Sean Lowe says that The Bachelor season premiere, which aired last night was an exciting, but anxious experience, one he "can't quite put into words."

He tries his best, fortunately, in his weekly blog.

Heading into the night, he wondered, "Would I feel a connection with anyone? Am I going to meet my future wife tonight? Am I going to make it out alive?"

Sean did in fact survive to dole out the roses another day, and at least from The Bachelor spoilers we've read, the season goes pretty well for him.

Neither here nor there right now. Here's how Sean summed up his first night as the star of the ABC reality franchise, from beginning to end ...

Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for! No, not Jillian's return to The Biggest Loser. Not even the National Championship football game.

The Bachelor is back! Sean Lowe, jilted by Emily Maynard during her stint as the bachelorette, the 29-year-old Texan is back and looking for love.

(If you're impatient and want to jump ahead in time, it's okay. We understand check out The Bachelor Spoilers to find out Sean's rumored top 4!)

He skypes with his family and runs with his shirt off! What's not to love?

(I'd like an over/under on how many times we see Sean working out this season.)

One thing's for sure: Emily should've picked Sean. Seeing how she's already called it quits with Jef with one F and Sean was so in love with her and all.

Sean says "it took a while" to get over Emily. So, in TV talk, that means 15 minutes. Minus 3.

The producers of The Bachelor, which kicks off its 17th season tonight, are filing their second lawsuit in two years against reality TV spoiler guru Reality Steve.

Every winter, The Bachelor spoilers run rampant. Every summer, The Bachelorette spoilers do the same. Somehow, some way, Steve gets it done.

How? No one knows. But ABC is not happy about it.

NZK Productions and Horizon Alternative Television claim the site's creator, Stephen Carbone, has been "unlawfully obtaining" info about the upcoming season.

"I want to start a family and just have a house that's full of love and laughter," he says. "I want to spend my time hanging out with those that I love. That's what I want."

We say character because the "reality" of the show is rather marginal.

Sean Lowe is set to debut as The Bachelor in less than a month, and he promises emotion, surprises and drama - just no second thoughts about Emily Maynard.

Of course, we already know how his season supposedly ends - see The Bachelor spoilers for the long and short of it - but that's neither here nor there.

In a chat with the media today, Sean Lowe discussed the "mystery contestant" in the premiere, to Emily Maynard, cat-fighting, early favorites and more.

Excerpts from his wide-ranging interview below:

On early favorites this season: "There was definitely one girl in the first episode that catches my eye, and she does receive the very first rose."

The Bachelor is an American reality television dating game show debuting in 2002 on ABC. For all seasons, the show is hosted by veteran television personality, one-time game show host and news anchor Chris Harrison. There are two related series: The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad.

Contents 1 Production 2 Plot 3 The elimination process 4 Seasons 5 Notes 6 Controversies 6.1 Questions of authenticity 6.2 Reality Steve 7 Video game 8 International versions 9 Parodies 10 See also 11 References 12 External links [edit] Production

It is produced and directed by Mike Fleiss and is shot by camera operator Jesse Fleiss.

[edit] Plot

The series revolves around a single bachelor (deemed eligible) and a pool of romantic interests (typically 25; 30 in season 15), which could include a potential wife for the bachelor. The conflicts in the series, both internal and external, stem from the elimination-style format of the show. Early in the season, the bachelor goes on large group dates with the women, with the majority of women eliminated during rose ceremonies. As the season progresses, women are also eliminated on one-on-one dates and on elimination two-on-one dates. The process culminates with hometown visits to the families of the final four women, overnight dates at exotic locations with the final three women, and interaction with the bachelor's family with the final two women. In many cases, the bachelor proposes to his final selection.

During most seasons, the majority of the show takes place, and the contestants reside, in "Villa De La Vina," a 7,590-square-foot (705 m2), six-bedroom, nine-bath home in Agoura Hills, California. The custom home, built in 2005, is located on 10 acres at a confidential location. As of October 10, 2008, the home was listed for sale at a price of US$8.75 million.[1] This mansion is used throughout of most seasons of the show, with the exceptions of New York City, where Charlie O'Connell, who had appeared in Sliders with his brother Jerry O'Connell, lived, where season 7 was filmed; Paris, France for season 8; Rome, Italy for season 9, where Lorenzo Borghese is half-Italian and various locations in the U.S. such as Northern California and Utah for season 16, where Ben Flajnik filmed his season in his hometown for early episodes of that season.

The show is known for its twists, both structurally and contextually. In some cases, the bachelor may or may not follow the show's standard rose ceremony guidelines. Numerous bachelors, for instance, have conferred fewer roses than allotted as per standard rose ceremony procedure; others have eliminated both women on a two-on-one date. One bachelor, Brad Womack, selected neither of his final two women. Another, Jason Mesnick, proposed to one woman, and then changed his mind during the "After the Final Rose" show to the other finalist; Mesnick is now married to her. Other twists include a woman leaving the show for work-related reasons and the dismissal of one candidate for an alleged affair with an ex-producer of the show.

The show's success has led producer Mike Fleiss to create multiple spin-offs, including The Bachelorette, in which the format is gender-reversed. Many bachelorettes are runner-ups or eliminated contestants from The Bachelor, including Trista Rehn, whose wedding to Ryan Sutter – the show's winner – was televised on ABC. On August 9, 2010, Bachelor Pad premiered, giving previous contestants of both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette the opportunity to compete in dating-themed eliminations for $250,000.

[edit] The elimination process

According to the summary on, each new Bachelor episode contains a rose ceremony during which one or more contestants is eliminated. Eliminations are based upon date performance (i.e., how the women relate to the bachelor on the dates). The bachelor must follow a process of elimination wherein his pool of bachelorettes is narrowed down week by week by presenting a rose to each of the women he wishes to keep.

At any point during the process, if a woman decides she is no longer interested in the bachelor, she may leave. A few have actually done so over the course of the show.

In the end, the bachelor may select only one woman for the final rose. Several of the bachelors have proposed, and one bachelor selected no one.

As of the end of season 16, none of the bachelors has married the woman to whom he presented the final rose. The season 13 bachelor (Jason) ended up marrying his season's runner-up in February 2010; to this point, it is the only Bachelor season thus far to result directly in the bachelor's marriage.

[edit] Controversies

As of January 2012, The Bachelor and its popular spin-off show The Bachelorette have never featured a non-white contestant in the title role, in their combined 21 seasons. Furthermore, a disproportionate majority of the rest of the contestants featured on the show have been white.[43] When asked about the lack of minority representation on the two shows executive producer, Mike Fleiss, responded, "It's just that for whatever reason, they don't come forward. I wish they would."[44]

[edit] Questions of authenticity

Former contestants, as well as the show's creator, Mike Fleiss, have come forth asserting that both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are scripted. The Bachelorette star Jesse Csincsak confesses that contestants must follow producers' orders and that a storyline is created in the editing room.[45]

On February 26, 2009, in an exclusive interview between The Bachelor Season 13 contestant Megan Parris, and Steve Carbone, Megan explained how the producers edit the footage to create a fictional storyline. "I don't think [the producers] showed any real conversation I had with anyone... The viewers fail to realize that editing is what makes the show... You'll hear someone make one comment and then they'll show a clip of somebody's face to make it look like that is their facial reaction to that statement, but really, somebody made that face the day before to something else. It's just piecing things together to make a story."[46]

On March 26, 2009, Megan Parris confessed that, not only is the show scripted, but that producers actually bully contestants into saying things to the camera that contestants do not want to say.[47] "'There's nothing real about it,' she said of the show's trademark "confessionals," in which contestants talk to the camera about the latest goings-on. "It is scripted," she said. "They basically will call you names, berate you, curse at you until they get you to say what they want you to say." Both ABC and Warner Bros., the studio that produces The Bachelor, had no comment."[48]

On March 15, 2010, creator Mike Fleiss appeared on 20/20 confessing that he develops contestants into characters that will cater to his audience's tastes and that they "need [their] fair share of villains every season."[49] Fleiss has come under fire for admitting that The Bachelor has less to do with reality than it does making good television.[50]

By 2011, during the airing of the The Bachelorette, Season 7, actors were being hired by ABC to play specific roles on the show.[51] Fans were becoming tired of the show's scripted nature and speaking out.[52] The following year there were many complaints when the entire cast of The Bachelorette openly acted out the written script with The Muppets.[53]

On February 24, 2012, during the taping of The Women Tell All episode of The Bachelor, a private conversation between contestant Courtney Robertson and a show producer went public when microphones were accidentally left on in between camera takes. The conversation revealed the producer's role as an acting coach encouraging Robertson to fake certain emotions for the camera which she was not feeling.[54]

[edit] Reality Steve

The self-named Reality Steve (aka Steve Carbone) has been accurately leaking spoilers of The Bachelor since the 13th season in 2009.[55] He publishes rumors of the show, including its spin-offs The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad on his blog.[56] In December 2011, the producer of The Bachelor sued Carbone for leaking information about the show. The suit claims that Carbone encouraged contestants on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to break their confidentiality agreements. Reality Steve has denied that the source of the spoilers and rumors are current contestants.[57]

I appreciate it.” Then, she began to worry about coming off as too cold: “I don’t know if I can show that emotion again,” she fretted. “You have to,” the producer said. “This is for you.
