Kaitlyn Bristowe
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe heads to the Fantasy Suite her last two overnight dates on Week 9 (July 13). Nick Viall had his turn (again) last week, so tonight's episode will focus on her dates with Shawn Booth and Ben Higgins. One guy will go home at the rose ceremony, so what goes on behind closed doors may be the deciding factor for Kaitlyn. [Spoilers ahead]

Last week, Ben H. talked about his vision for the overnight dates, telling Kaitlyn that it's "not about the physical side of the relationship," and he’s "excited to stay up all night and talk." Dropping the no-sex bomb seemed to ra...

Who Is 'The Bachelor' 2016? Chris Harrison Says He's A 'Clear Fa
When will the Bachelor 2016 be announced, and is he one of Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's ex-suitors?

While there are multiple rumors about who will hand out roses on the show's 20th season, the big reveal is coming soon. According to Reality Steve, the announcement could happen on live After the Final Rose special (July 27), or in late August, shortly before filming begins.

UPDATE: Ben Higgins Speaks Out About Being Named 'The Bachelor' 2016

Fans are already making their predictions on Twitter about who the next Bachelor should be, but it's more than likely the people behind the scenes...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Has No Time For Haters

7/13/2015 7:30am EDT
'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Has Message For Her Haters: Will
Kaitlyn Bristowe is one of the most talked-about Bachelorette stars in the history of the show, but not all of the chatter has been positive. From kissing too many guys, to sleeping with Nick Viall several episodes before the Fantasy Suite dates, the 30-year-old dance instructor has been taking a 140-character beating on Twitter.

On Monday night's episode, it's likely Kaitlyn will have to face the wrath of more judgmental fans. With two more overnight dates to go, and a rose ceremony elimination, she's definitely going to need the shirt she showed off on Twitter this weekend.

See ya! Wo...

Kaitlyn Bristowe's Guys Tape 'The Bachelorette: Men Tell All': W
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe will come face-to-face with the guys she dumped this season during Saturday's taping of the Season 11 Men Tell All special.

Kaitlyn's guys, minus her final two, will spend hours taping the special that airs July 20, and may have some tough questions to ask the Bachelorette about the choices she made this season. However, Kaitlyn won't be the only one answering questions, with host Chris Harrison putting some of the most memorable guys from Season 11 in the hot seat.

Who will be called up on stage to talk about what has been an extremely controversial season? ...

'Bachelor In Paradise' Season 2 Cast List Keeps Growing

Joe Bailey, Jared Haibon Join 'Bachelor In Paradise' Cast — Dram
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe dumped Joe Bailey and Jared Haibon before the overnight dates, but there's more reality TV drama ahead for both guys. Instead of heading home to mend their broken hearts, Joe and Jared went straight for Mexico for another chance at finding love on Bachelor in Paradise.

Although People states that Jared is the last of Kaitlyn's guys to joined the cast, Reality Steve is confident that Joe — and five other dumpees — will also appear on ABC's reality show this summer.

Did Joe and Jared have better luck finding love on Bachelor in Paradise? And who are the other ...

'The Bachelorette': Kaitlyn's Sex Secret Finally Comes Out!

The Bachelorette
Can you believe we're almost done with The Bachelorette? It's gone by so fast. It was just yesterday that limos were arriving at Bachelorette Mansion and Britt was still a relevant part of the show.

Now, Kaitlyn's whittled the group down to just three dudes, and she'll be judging their relationship mettle in the overnight f--k dates… err, fantasy suites. Same difference. We're not quite there at the start of the hour, though. We open with five men still remaining and Cupcake Chris (last seen weeping alone on a cliffside, freshly dumped) now a distant memory.

It's Ben H.'s turn for a one-o...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Cheating On Her Final Pick?

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe Admits Dating Vancouver Firefigh
The Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe gives out her final rose on July 27, but there are rumors that her love story with the man she chooses may not last long. Although spoilers indicate that she accepts a proposal from one of her final two guys, there are rumors that a man she dated prior to her gig on Chris Soules' season of the Bachelor is back in her life.

There is very little known about Kaitlyn's personal life before she became a reality TV star — she hasn't discussed her past with her suitors this season, at least on camera.

As if there isn't enough controversy this season with the Nic...

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe's Fantasy Suite Date Gets Interrupted

7/4/2015 8:45am EDT
Kaitlyn Bristowe
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's season has been one of the most controversial seasons in the show's history, and the drama is far from over. Monday night's overnight dates won't be quite as private as they have been in previous seasons, with rumors that producers entered the fantasy suite with cameras rolling during at least one of Kaitlyn's dates.

When cameras hovered outside Kaitlyn's hotel room door during her intimate one-on-one date with Nick Viall earlier in the season, even the Bachelorette was shocked to find out that everyone could hear them.

In an interview with Entertainment To...

Thought Nick and Shawn's rivalry on The Bachelorette couldn't get any more heated? How wrong you were- it's about to explode! According to SheKnows, next week's episode of the ABC reality show will finally see the long-simmering tension between Kaitlyn Bristowe's two suitors come to a head- and Kaitlyn's big secret out in the open.

As we've already seen in the preview for next week's The Bachelorette, next week is the episode when Kaitlyn finally admits to the remaining guys that she had sex with Nick after their one-on-one date. "It's hard for me to admit it it, but… we had sex" she says ...

Will Ben Zorn Be The Next 'Bachelor'?

Ben Zorn
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe sent handsome Ben Zorn home on Monday night, leaving many fans wondering how she could ditch one of the nicest guys on the show. Although there will be no happily-ever-after for Kaitlyn and Ben, host Chris Harrison states that viewers "haven't seen the last of him."

Does that mean Zorn is one of the top contenders for the next Bachelor, or is Chris referring to the next time the guys get together on the Men Tell All? Unfortunately, the name of the next Bachelor won't be revealed until after Kaitlyn's season wraps up at the end of July.

'Bachelorette' Kaitlyn Bristowe: 'I Was Scared Of Shawn'
Kaitlyn Bristowe is looking for her future husband on this season of The Bachelorette, but many fans of the show feel she is sabotaging this opportunity. Thus far, she has given one man a false hope of him being the last man standing, and Kaitlyn has hooked up with Nick Viall in a moment of weakness. Now, Bristowe is speaking out about her experiences with Shawn and why she now regrets telling him that he was the one for her.

According to a new PEOPLE report, Kaitlyn Bristowe is now revealing that she kept Shawn around for another week because she was scared of him. Shawn showed his emotio...

Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe continues to eliminate guys as she gets closer to giving out her final rose, but fans will see many of the guys she dumped later this summer on the spinoff show, Bachelor in Paradise.

'The Bachelorette' Recap: Will Kaitlyn Tell The Other Guys She H
Where did we last leave The Bachelorette? Oh, right. Shawn was miffed about not getting a group date rose (despite Kaitlyn cooing that he was totally the one in San Antonio), and stormed up to our Bachelorette's hotel room to confront her about it.

The confrontation? Surprisingly non-confrontational. Kaitlyn and Shawn both tiptoe around their real feelings and let their ooey gooey hormones do the talking. A bunch of mush like "I like you more than anyone" and "I'm falling in love with you." Also, ample frenching.

Shawn: Mmm… *kiss* *grope* (translation: I'M UNCOMFORTABLE OTHER MEN)


Another 'Bachelorette' Romance On The Rocks?

Britt Nilsson Calls It Quits With Brady Toops, What's Next For '
Bachelorette fans are hoping to get an update about Britt Nilsson's relationship with Brady Toops on Monday night, amidst rumors that the reality stars are no longer dating. Britt, who first appeared on Chris Soules' season of The Bachelor, started dating Brady after she lost the role of the Bachelorette to Kaitlyn Bristowe.

On the second night of the season premiere, host Chris Harrison told Britt that she didn't get enough votes to become the Season 11 Bachelorette. When she found out Kaitlyn won the role, she was devastated and left the mansion in tears.

Her sadness didn't last long. B...

Kaitlyn Bristowe: 'When You Judge Me, You Do Not Define Me'

Kaitlyn Bristowe
The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe has come under fire online after revealing that she had sex with one of the show's contestants during Monday night's episode.

Bristowe hooked up with male suitor Nick Viall, who joined the show during the fifth episode of this season, and immediately regretted her actions afterward, saying to the camera that she may have "ruined everything becasue of one stupid f---ing mistake I made."

The 29-year-old defended herself following Monday night's episode though, Tweeting, "Just remember, when you judge me, you do not define me, you define yourself. think...

'The Bachelorette': Which Contestant Did Kaitlyn Have Sex With?

6/23/2015 8:03am EDT
The Bachelorette
Can I say something? I totally predicted that Nick would be the one to um… "plow" Kaitlyn's "field." Saw that one coming the moment he stepped onto the show.

Ok, minor gloat moment aside. Shall we begin this week's The Bachelorette?

When we last left Kaitlyn and the gang, she was being berated by Ian for being "shallow" and "surface level" and just on The Bachelorette "to make out with a bunch of dudes on TV." That may be true (let's be honest here, people), but Ian still comes off like a massive tool.

He went to Princeton, you guys. He's here for love, not fart jokes and poop jokes and ...

Ali Fedotowsky is saying goodbye to E! News. According to Us Weekly, the former "Bachelorette" turned news correspondent will be giving up her post on the entertainment channel. “Ali is not going to be returning to E! News in the fall,” Fedotowsky's representative said to Us Weekly. “It was a mutual decision.”

After her stint on "The Bachelorette," Fedotowsky made a few appearances on E! News, as a guest co-host and correspondent. In August of 2013, she joined the network full-time, hosting "Live From E!," covering events from the red carpet and doing plenty of heavy lifting on the program...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: Ian Goes Crazy, Claims Kaitlyn Just Wa
Ready for this week's "The Bachelorette?" Because about 95% of the "Bachelorette" men aren't. Nick V has entered the show for real, and there's hell to pay. So yeah- Nick's entrance into the guys' apartment is very awkward.

He enters. He sits.


Nick states his case, as 14 pairs of judgmental eyes bore holes into his brain. He's not here to cause drama. He's here for love, and for Kaitlyn: those holy, gold-encrusted "Right Reasons™." The men don't care, and shred him regardless.

At one point, Nick calls Kaitlyn a "cool chick." Whoa whoa whoa. Is she a cool chick, bro, or an amazi...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: What's Worse, 'Bachelorette' Rap Battl
This season isn't going to have a "Bachelorette" episode that begins and ends where it's supposed to, is it? No? Oh well.

We begin our fourth week of "Bachelorette" romancing where week three's cliffhanger left us. Kaitlyn knows Clint was more into bromancing JJ than dating her. She's coming at him with a vengeance.

Clint knows his last minutes of reality TV fame are numbered, and lays on the "power moves." AKA, lying out of his ass. I've never said anything bad about anyone, he says. They're jealous of my friendship with JJ, he says.

Kaitlyn still doesn't trust him, so Clint is given th...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: More Sumo Wrestling Buttcrack Than You
When we last left "The Bachelorette," (just once I'd like to see an episode actually end with a rose ceremony), an alcohol-soaked Kupah had just been eliminated. He was also screaming incoherently with his face six inches from the camera guy's.

This week, Kaitlyn (also, everyone) hears Kupah's elimination-howls and heads out to defuse the situation. She does, although his yes, ma'am-ish reply is weird and kid-like. Ditto for grumbling she's ugly, I never liked her anyway as soon as Kaitlyn's back is turned.

But Kupah is ushered into his elimination limo and the night can continue. Which i...

'Bachelorette' Promo Features Two Male Contestants Falling In Love

JJ and Clint
Just one week into this season of ABC's The Bachelorette a love connection between Britt Nilsson and contestant Brady Toops has already been forged, albeit behind the cameras, and now it seems another highly unlikely romance has begun.

Nilsson was voted off the show in just the second episode in favor of Kaitlyn Bristowe as part of a new twist to name this season's lucky lady; and after Nilsson left and the waterworks began back at her hotel, she was chased down by Toops, who had told host Chris Harrison that he felt he had a connecton with her that he didn't feel with Bristowe (even if Br...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: Punch Drunk Love... Literally, And Oth
Last week's three-hour "The Bachelorette" premiere madness has ended. Do you feel a wave of tranquility across your entire body? That's what this is. Now Kaitlyn and her many menfolk can begin their rigorous love-finding search in earnest.

Oh, and "in earnest" means "strapping on boxing gloves and clobbering each other in the head." It's a boxing competition! The guys get to train with Laila Ali (awesome), then use their day's worth of boxing expertise to duke it out in the ring.

Here's a question: does Kaitlyn actually box? Usually group dates have some kind of connection to the Bachelor...

Did Britt Nilsson Make A Love Connection Even Though She's Not 'The Bachelorette'?

5/23/2015 3:44pm EDT
Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops
Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe may be going on to film an entire season of the hit ABC show, but it sounds like the real winner was Britt Nilsson, who was voted off the show after one episode, thanks to a new twist.

The 11th season of the show began with the bachelors having to choose between Kaitlyn and Britt, but one of them, Brady Toops, couldn't get Britt out of his head after it was revealed that Kaitlyn was the unanimous choice.

Toops took host Chris Harrison aside and told him that he wasn't interested in pursuing Kaitlyn on the show, and instead asked about the hotel where Britt wa...

'The Bachelorette' Recap: Kaitlyn Bristowe Is Crowned Bacheloret
We ended Monday's half of "The Bachelorette's" season premiere on a big dumb cliffhanger. Chris Harrison was about to reveal the next Bachelorette. But he didn't. Because cliffhangers.

The second of two "Bachelorette" premieres cuts right to the chase: who's getting that tearful limo ride back to normal human civilization - Britt or Kaitlyn?

It's actually pretty tactful. Chris approaches Britt. He informs her that her horde of potential husbands has chosen Kaitlyn, not her (smart choice, husband horde). She's upset, but she accepts her fate. Once again, an ABC intern is called to sop up t...

'The Bachelorette' Season Premiere Recap: Meet The Crazies Compe
Is there anything more beautiful than true love? No. No there is not. There is, however, something more entertaining: 25 jackasses all competing to win the affection of two women they saw on a few episodes of reality TV last year. On a dating show franchise entering its 30th (!!) combined season and boasting six whole couples that haven't yet divorced in a messy hate-splosion.

"The Bachelorette" is back!

There is, of course, a twist this season. This is "Bachelorette" x 2 - two lovely ladies seeking a life partner. Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe both got the boot from Chris Soules on ...

You likely remember JP and Ashley Rosenbaum from the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, but the cameras turned off a long time ago and now the happy couple are focused on being parents to their new son Fordham, and helping other families.

We caught up with JP and Ashley last week while they were helping Puffs raise awareness for cold and flu season, and asked them about naming their son, maintaining their relationship, and what it's like to be one of the rare duos who've lasted past reality TV.

"Parenthood has been an absolute joy so far," enthused Ashley. "Ford is a very sweet, and 'easy' ...

In a surprising twist following The Bachelor's "After The Rose" special on Monday night, host Chris Harrison threw fans a curveball and announced that the upcoming 11th season of The Bachelorette will feature two women in the lead role.

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, who both vied for the love of bachelor Chris Soules on the latest season of The Bachelor, were both in the running for the spot, and producers of the hit ABC series decided to choose both of them.

'The Bachelorette' Andi Dorfman And Josh Murray Break Up
Alas, Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray have gone from a happy couple to another in a long line of "Bachelor"/"Bachelorette" couples that couldn't hash it in the real world.

The two announced their breakup in a public statement, that sounds about as amicable as a public celeb breakup can be.

"After several months of being engaged and working on our relationship, we have decided that it's best for both of us to go our separate ways. We are very sad that it has come to this point, but this is what's best for both of us individually."

Behind the scenes, things weren't so press-release-perfect. D...

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 ...
