'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 ...

Which Former 'Bachelorette' Just Quit Her Job?

Ali Fedotowsky
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': Kaitlyn Falls For An Old 'Bachelor' Villain

'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': TV Safe Buttcrack Blurring And Language Bleeping Included

'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

5/29/2015 4:22pm EDT
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' Full Of Punches, Who Went Home This Week?

'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...

New 'Bachelorette' Chosen, Was It Britt or Kaitlyn?

5/20/2015 10:14am EDT
'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 ...

Catching Up With 'Bachelorette' Stars JP & Ashley Rosenbaum

JP & Ashley Rosenbaum Talk Relationship, Parenting After 'The Ba
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' ...

ABC Announces Shocking Twist For 'The Bachelorette' Season 11

3/10/2015 5:31pm EDT
Kaitlyn Bristowe And Britt Nilsson Will Both Be 'The Bachelorett
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.

How's ‘The Bachelorette’ Andi Dorfman And Josh Murray’s Relationship Going?

1/9/2015 9:01am EST
'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...

There's A New 'Bachelor'!

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) 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 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

7/8/2014 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...

Grab The Tissues, It's The 10 Most Memorable TV Weddings Ever
From "GH's" Luke and Laura to "Game of Thrones'" Red Wedding, television fans love a good wedding ceremony! If the ceremony goes a bit awry, all the better! Weddings are a good way for the entire cast to unite (or reunite as the case may be) for one last time as in a series finale, or a way to push forward the story (as in the case of "Game of Thrones") a way that is unexpected. Grab the tissues, sit back and remember the 10 best weddings in TV history!

Former 'Bachelorette' Emily Maynard Weds Fiance Tyler Johnson In Surprise Ceremony

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...

Part Two of our four hour Bachelorette-stravaganza is here, and finally our lovesick fourteensome will be leaving the greater L.A. area. Now, they're headed for wintry Connecticut.

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.

This week, the first lucky man to experience the frozen Connecticut tundras will be Dylan. Makes sense; he'...

Tonight marks the first night in our all-star "The Bachelorette" two-part extravaganza! Which would explain why last night's episode aired on a Sunday, when most people are watching dignified cable dramas about American history or dragon-adjacent nudity.

But not us. We're kicking off tonight with the first of this season's exotic travel destinations: Santa Barbara. Which is an area of California slightly to the west of L.A, and an area so close, the guys can stay in the mansion for another week and just take a quick car ride out to Andi for date time.

The first man to take the commute o...
