Several “Bachelor Nation” Alums Received Tens Of Thousands Of Dollars In PPP Loans During The Pandemic

June 29, 2021 / Posted by:

Bachelor Nation cranks out like five to ten solid influencers a year across their shows The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, and Bachelor In Paradise. The hot-bodied twenty-somethings who go on that show aren’t even usually looking for love and are instead looking for a hotel or travel website to sponsor vacations where they wear rented designer merch and get to keep one piece of their choice valued under $500. The fucking dream! But then Coronavirus came along and made it “hard” for these reality messes turned influencers to travel and make money for doing absolutely nothing. TMZ says that some of the Bachelor folks dipped into PPP loans meant to help the needy! And no, Colton Underwood, being needy for attention does not count!

Chris Harrison Got A $9 Million Payout To Leave “The Bachelor”

June 21, 2021 / Posted by:

Earlier this month, it was announced that rose-counting reality show host robot, Chris Harrison, was leaving The Bachelor franchise after he did a disastrous interview on Extra where he defended a contestant’s racist past. We heard that ABC stuffed eight figures in Chris’ pockets to go the hell away. Well, Variety published an in-depth article about the behind-the-scenes goings-on of Chris’ exit and I’m sad to say he only received a measly $9 million, plus contractual fees. Poor guy! How will he survive?!

Chris Harrison Is Officially Out As Host Of “The Bachelor” Franchise And Was Reportedly Paid Eight Figures To Go Away

June 8, 2021 / Posted by:

The only person getting richer than Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather this week is going to be Chris Harrison. The former host of The Bachelor series has lost his gig for good. 49-year-old Chris had been the host of the show since it debuted in 2002 but got put in a timeout recently. Chris defended a contestant on the previous season of The Bachelor, Rachael Kirkconnell, from the “woke police” after she was found to have participated in some highly racist Antebellum balls. Chris went away for some classes from a race educator but I guess that wasn’t enough. Because he’s not coming back to the show. But don’t cry for him, Bachelor Nation. It’s been reported he was paid eight figures to leave. Um, when can I get fired and then be rich enough to never have to work again as a consequence?

Chris Harrison Will Be Replaced On “Bachelor In Paradise” By David Spade And Several Other Guest Hosts

June 3, 2021 / Posted by:

As a lifelong Bachelor fan since 2002, I can tell you that longtime host Chris Harrison operates like a robot with limited romance programming. He could smile. He could pronounce the words “ladies” and “gentlemen” to small, manageable groups of reality TV contestants. He could even make respectful, inoffensive banter about room keys and fantasy suites. But earlier this year, Chris Harrison proved he wasn’t created in an underground bunker at ABC by experts in mild-mannered likeability. Chris Harrison defended a Bachelor contestant’s past racism and went on a tear about the “woke police,” which ended with Chris temporarily stepping away from the show.

Chris has since apologized, and claimed that he has plans to return as host. ABC clearly has other plans, because it was announced that Chris won’t be hosting the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise, and instead, ABC called in a revolving door of celebrity guest hosts, like David Spade. Imagine being too much of a mess to host the messy, boozy summer season spin-off of an already messy dating show? Chris Harrison, look at your life and your choices! Continue reading

“The Bachelorette Australia” Will Feature A Bisexual Lead With Men And Women Fighting For Her Love

May 20, 2021 / Posted by:

The Bachelor has had few openly LGBTQ people involved with the series at all whatsoever. Former Bachelor, Colton Underwood, recently came out as gay and got a Netflix gig, a contestant on Bachelor In Paradise, Demi Burnett, brought her girlfriend onto the show, and former contestant, Jaimi King was the first openly bisexual person on the show when she dated Nick Viall in 2017 for the 21st season. Well the times, they are a-changing! At least in Australia. The new season of the Australian version of The Bachelorette will feature the first-ever openly bisexual lead, Brooke Blurton, who will be dating both men and women.

In Case You Weren’t Sure, Everything Is Good Between Corinne Olympios And DeMario Jackson

August 31, 2017 / Posted by:

When Corinne Olympios appeared on a Bachelor in Paradise reunion show Tuesday night in her best attempt at an Ariana Grande hair tutorial, she issued an apology to DeMario Jackson (via rose wrangler Chris Harrison) for all the drama that went down during the first weekend of filming. She also claimed she didn’t really remember the incident, because she had drank too much booze while taking medication. It wrapped everything up into a tidy little reality TV package, and closed the door on that chapter.

Maybe there were a couple viewers who wondered if Corinne’s apology was orchestrated by Warner Bros. head honchos, standing behind the camera, mouthing the words “Don’t forget the part about the pills!” while making invisible pill bottle-shaking hand motions. Well no, Corinne and DeMario are absolutely, for-real all good now. TMZ caught up with Corinne and DeMario outside of a club last night in Los Angeles, and they made it very clear there’s no bad blood. No literally, Corinne says it twice.

TMZ seems to think this is all a little too good to be true. I can see how they might be suspicious. Personally, the only way I’m allowing a jump-hug like that is if I’m getting paid to do it (you gotta get that money in case you throw your damn back out!). But then again, DeMario does make a joke about how his “PR is going to hate this in the morning.” Oh DeMario, surely you’re not that naive. This is exactly the sort of thing a publicist likes to wake up to. Did you get attention? Check! The only thing they’d hate is if it happened and no cameras were around. DeMario, you’re going to be fine.
