There's A New 'Bachelor'!

August 27th, 2014 12:22pm EDT
Chris Soules
ABC announced that "The Bachelorette" season 10 contestant Chris Soules has become the next star of hit series "The Bachelor," which will kick off in January 2015.

The fan favorite, who was one of the final three men vying for Andi Dorfman's love on the latest season of "The Bachelorette," was revealed on Good Morning America Wednesday.

The Iowa corn and soybean farmer, known to fans as "Farmer Chris," was the clear frontrunner since the post-finale episode of "The Bachelorette." Host Chris Harrison explained during the "After The Final Rose" special that producers hadn't yet made the dec...

Fox News Host Bob Beckel Calls 'Bachelorette' Star Andi Dorfman A Slut

Fox News Host Bob Beckel Calls 'Bachelorette' Star Andi Dorfman
The season finale of "The Bachelorette" aired on Monday, and the show made headlines after it was revealed on "The Bachelorette: After The Rose" that Andi Dorfman had sex with Nick, even though she knew she wanted to be with Josh.

Her actions struck a chord with Fox News host Bob Beckel.

"She's a slut!" he exclaimed, irritating his female co-hosts. "I'm not kidding you!"

He added: "She sleeps with somebody else and doesn't tell the guy about it."

Andrea Tantaros responded: "Excuse me, Bob. You probably sleep with a different woman every night. Those in glass boudoirs, Beckel, those in ...

'The Bachelorette' After The Final Rose: Was Nick A Jerk, Or Was Andi? Andi, Probably

'The Bachelorette' After The Final Rose: Was Nick A Jerk, Or Was
Like any season of "The Bachelorette," we're not over until all three hours of finale have been painfully worked through.

And hour three begins with a broken, sluggish, post-breakup Nick. It's a sad time to be a (former) reality show contestant, and "The Bachelorette" conveys Nick's sadness with roughly a jillion shots of Nick, looking forlornly across various views of scenic somethings.

Although, learning of Nick's post-dump backstory is pretty neat. Did you know he was at "The Men Tell All?" And yet, because of Andi's powerful shunning techniques, he was not able to Tell All? For once, ...

'The Bachelorette' Season 10 Finale Recap: Love (Also Sports) Triumphs Over All

'The Bachelorette' Season 10 Finale Recap: Love (Also Sports) Tr
It is time: "The Bachelorette" has come to and end. It's a sad day for us at home, because no longer can we guilty pleasure-binge on Andi Dorfman and her search for TV-quality romance. But it's a happy day for Andi, as she'll finally settle down with one of the two predetermined men of her dreams. Also sad for us at home (again), because Bachelorette finales clock in at three full hours and they're mostly filler.

Oh, and don't forget the other eliminated Bacheloretteers, like Bryan, Chris or Cody. They're here too, being forced to watch the woman they once loved, making out with and being...

'The Bachelorette' Season 10, The Men Tell All Recap: TV Ultrasounds, Racism Cured Via Cookie Frosting

July 22nd, 2014 11:52am EDT
'The Bachelorette' Season 10, The Men Tell All Recap: TV Ultraso
In proud Bachelorette tradition, it's time to postpone the finale everyone's dying to see (although it would take almost no effort to google "Andi Dorfman" and figure out which guy she picked- the finale was taped weeks ago) for a block of pure, uncut filler.

Yes, it's "The Men Tell All," which is another of those awkward moments when Chris Harrison grinds the show to a halt to talk things through with the Bachelor or Bachelorette. Only, it's two hours long, it continually cuts to a crowd of emotion-hungry women (plus two dudes, for diversity quotas), and it ends with blooper bonus footage...

As "The Bachelorette" begins the march to its final rose, Andi and her triumvirate of manflesh visit the parts of the Dominican Republic not wracked by horrific poverty. As is customary when picking a single specimen from your manharem, Andi reviews each potential mate by his strengths and weaknesses.

Josh's best feature is his personality, which is an odd way of pronouncing "sports," but whatever. His dark hair sets Andi's soul afire, and his personality is playful. But Josh is the type of guy Andi always falls for, and what's the point of finding love on reality TV if you end up with a l...

'Bachelorette' Host Chris Harrison Defends Show's Decision To Include Eric Hill's Death In Latest Episode

July 8th, 2014 7:32pm EDT
Chris Harrison
Producers of hit ABC reality series The Bachelorette were faced with the dilemma of how they should address the tragic death of contestant Eric Hill shortly after he was cast off the show by star Andi Dorfman.

Hill died on April 23 of injuries from a paragliding accident he had three days earlier in Utah, when his parachute collapsed, and at the time there were four remaining suitors left vying for Andi's affection, and someone had to break the news to them.

"Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison explained to TV Guide's Robyn Ross how that happened, saying that after his appearance on talk sh...

Once more, "The Bachelorette" continues the longtime tradition of meeting your boyfriend's family for the first time, as he proclaims, "Hi Mom! This is the woman I met on TV who I'm now going to marry, so long as I make it through the next three elimination rounds." Ahh, true love.

Nick is first, because of course Nick is first. He and Andi travel around his hometown of Waukesha, Wisconsin and taste a beer named after these two lucky lovers. For Nick's sake, let's hope that was just a gag label and that there aren't fifty cases of "Nick and Andi Lager" sitting in his garage. Andi, meanwhil...

As Bachelorette Andi and the men who follow her every footstep continue on to Brussels, the tension has upped dramatically. Six men enter, four men leave- and those four men have the privilege of showing Andi off to their closest family members. Not surprisingly, the men are all chirping on various versions of the great "L" word. Many of them also wear fashionable scarves. Because of tension.

And this week, the first one-on-one recipient is Marcus. The two of them stroll around Brussels, just taking in the culture. No rose, no stress, no drama- except for Andi, who continually harps on the...

The Bachelorette Season 10, Episode 6
The Bachelorette European tour continues! It's a new week, a new country, and a new set of cultural traditions to be mangled by our ever-shrinking group of beautiful, desperate weirdos.

This week, Italy's on the menu, but there's something a little off about the festivities. You see, Andi has been to Italy. She knows the country and the culture (she doesn't seem to know any Italian, but you can't win 'em all). Certainly, this will give her a leg up among the menfolk, who float into Venice with talk of how the churches are totally awesome. Because if it's one thing Andi needs, it's a leg u...

For our fifth week of The Bachelorette (not counting last week's, which was basically a clip show), Andi's selection of male concubines has been pared down to just eleven. But with less contestants, it's now far cheaper for ABC to send the cast to France. So to France we must go!

As soon as the group arrives in Marseille, the stakes seem higher. Some of the menfolk have still not had any significant alone time with Andi, and for obvious reasons, they've begun mentally unraveling. Andi, meanwhile, is asked by our intrepid host Chris Harrison if she's considered the L word for any of these f...

10 Dating Don'ts We've Learned from 'The Bachelorette'

10 Dating Don'ts We've Learned from 'The Bachelorette'
Dating is tough stuff. Sure, the rewards are great (rewards like "love," "tax benefits," or "someone who can legally abstain from testifying against you in court,") but the risks are heavy. No one wants a broken heart.

But that's what shows like "The Bachelorette" are for. They're idealized versions of romance, that give us the warm and fuzzies when two people find love, and give us the opportunity to point and laugh when some bozo blows his shot at happiness. But sadly, "The Bachelorette" isn't real life. And because so few of us will find ourselves in a 1-on-25 dating game, "The Bachelor...

Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard has finally taken the walk down the aisle after a surprise wedding on Saturday.

Maynard wed fiance Tyler Johnson in a ceremony at Johnson's family farm in South Carolina, where 200 guests thinking they were at an engagement party got the bonus plan.

"God brought us together. He's given me such peace about everything. I'm so grateful I met him," Maynard -- now Emily Johnson -- told People magazine.

Sounds like the third time was the charm for Maynard, who somewhat regrets looking for love on a TV series.

Jimmy Kimmel poked fun at The Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman earlier this week, sharing a little bit of trivia he discovered while watching the show and revealing that there's one word Dorfman is always saying.

Kimmel explained during Tuesday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live that on most seasons of the show the most popular word said by the stars is "amazing" -- amazing date, amazing time, amazing kiss, amazing that a young woman will meet, fall in love and be ready to walk down the aisle with a guy she's known for six weeks while simultaneously dating 24 other guys, etc. -- but this s...

The Bacheloretteers love the change of scenery and they are loving their new digs. We've got men sharing hotel rooms. Men falling into warm, friendly embraces on the couch. Men squeezing themselves into a single tub to share a few drinks. Love is in the air! Also, Andi is probably around here somewhere.

Meanwhile, the guys have a better grasp on life in a mansion of love, and the knowledge that they will steadily be erased from Andi's life based on their ability to seem dateable in extremely small doses.

And with that, we settle into the current Bachelorette routine. First comes the one-on-one date. Then, the group date. Then one-on-one number two. And who's the lucky fella who will receive s...

This year's "The Bachelorette" is off to a somber start.

Eric Hill, one of the many desperate-despite-their-good-looks men vying for the heart of Andi Dorfman, died in a paragliding accident in April, shortly after his time on "The Bachelorette" had ended. And this leaves ABC in a particularly sticky situation- how does one approach this season, knowing that one of these twenty-five men, who we're supposed to laugh at and cheer for and watch his shirt come off in basically every episode, has passed away?

Andi Dorfman Confirmed As The Next 'Bachelorette'
It was a poorly-kept secret, but now it's official - Andi Dorfman is the next Bachelorette.

At the beginning of the month it was reported Andi was going to get the chance to find the love of her life on the Bachelor spin-off, after she was hailed by fans for confronting "worst bachelor ever" Juan Pablo and dumping him before he had the chance to kick her off the show.

It was then revealed the lawyer took a leave of absence from a murder case she was working on without a distinct reason why.

Last night on the post-finale special "After the Final Rose," Andi was introduced as the next Bach...

After 26 seasons of the show, most of the couples who have appeared on The Bachelor have succumbed to the reality that building “forever” with someone they’ve known for mere weeks defies logic. Then again, who said love is logical? Three couples have made it to the altar – and two more are headed there. The Bachelor’s surviving couples (Trista & Ryan, Sean & Catherine, Jason & Molly, Ashley & J.P., and Desiree & Chris) open up about making romance last – and what lies ahead – in this week’s issue of PEOPLE.

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are angry at critics for ruining "The Lone Ranger". The film's two stars have blamed bad reviews for the movie's poor performance, implying that critics were bashing the film long before they even saw it. "I think the reviews were written seven to eight months before we released the film," Depp said. "I think the reviews were written when they heard Gore (Verbinski, director) and Jerry (Bruckheimer, producer) and me were going to do 'The Lone Ranger'. They had expectations that it must be a blockbuster. I didn't have any expectations of that. I never do." Hammer...
