Our Next Bachelorette: Stay Tuned...

Or is she?! Hehehe, tune in next week, it's an ATFR2 you won't want to miss!

On a possible side note, does this mean we'll have to through the whole hot dog, ketchup, mustard, and kraut routine again and again and again?! Maybe instead of roses, she can say, "Will you please accept this hot dog?" ;)

UPDATE: Reality Steve has just added info at his website on the ATFR & Our Next Kraut Loving Bachette!

PT 2: Interview With REALITY STEVE

PT 2 INTERVIEW WITH REALITY STEVE:
HELL NO! HE'LL NEVER BE ABC'S NEXT BACHELOR!

Now that we've piqued your interest about my fellow blogger Reality Steve with part one of this interview posted last week, it's time to dish some dirt and get to the bottom of things. He made a pretty shocking announcement last week about the finale of Bachelor 13: That Jason picks Melissa and then dumps her at the ATFR 1 following the finale. But the BIGGER shocker of them all? That this may have been planned from the get go!

I'm not going to tell you what to believe, but read what Steve has to say. Regardless of what the outcome of this show is or what went on behind the scenes, I will say one thing about the Bachelor: it's AMAZING! It brings people together, sets them apart, and gets people really fired up! The show itself, the contestant's interactions once the camera turns off, and the online community of fans are all a great social entity that makes for interesting study! And I think we can all agree on that.

----

JENN: I want to focus on 2 previous seasons of this show for a couple of questions. First, Bachelor Brad's season. Do you have any interesting inside information or thoughts that might sum up Brad's season you'd like to share with us? Anything you have "reason to believe" ?

STEVE: No real inside information on Brad, other than the whole "we flew DeAnna's parents in because you asked us to" was complete BS. Brad never asked them that and I felt it was unfair for him to get crucified publicly. Just another case of editing and manipulation on ABC's part.

JENN: So DeAnna gets rejected and becomes the next Bachelorette. Do you have any interesting inside information or thoughts that might sum up DeAnna's season you'd like to share with us. Anything you have "reason to believe" ?

STEVE: I have reason to believe DeAnna's season was a complete farce. And if there weren't contracts and gag orders and $5 million threats being floated over peoples heads, you'd hear a lot more about how that whole season really played out. It was a joke. Unbelievable. She's the biggest phony on the planet. Can you tell I'm a big fan of DeAnna's?

JENN: You have reason to believe DeAnna's season was a farce. Do you think Jason came onto D's show knowing he wouldn't be picked but would be set up to be the next Bachelor? Or do you think that transpired later? Any more theories on this one?

STEVE: I think it might have transpired later in the show. I'm starting to believe more and more now that the theory that DeAnna picked Jesse so that they could have Jason as the next Bachelor. It just doesn't make any sense otherwise.

JENN: I missed out on a lot of post season gabbing about DeAnna's season. Apparently, and I was aware of this in the very end of that season, there was an issue with flowers in the final rose ceremony. They appeared in some shots, disappeared in others. There's a board online that had a whole several months long in depth CSI style hash out over this and other things. I didn't see any of this or read it but got the gist of it about a month ago. There were some things in the shots--some where DeAnna's hair was a bit different, some where the dress was looser on her and she appeared a bit thinner, others where her dress was tighter and she appeared heavier. Jesse's hair different, blah blah, blah. But the gist was that there was clearly a re-shoot. Why is the real question. The most accepted theory: DeAnna picks Jason, something happens to change her or his or both of their minds. They do a re-shoot to save face and she picks Jesse, carrying on that farce for a couple of months until they break up. Thus setting up Jason in the eyes of the viewers as the poor pitiful single dad left heartbroken and now the next Bachelor to get a chance to fall in love again. Did you ever get any inside information to that and what are your thoughts on this? Anything you have "reason to believe" ?

STEVE: That one I noticed on my own while watching. I had it saved on my Tivo for 6 months because I couldn't believe no one was talking about it more, but then it kinda lost steam so I stopped looking into it. But there was definitely something different about how that whole final rose ceremony shook down between Jason and Jesse. And I've heard the rumors that the picking of Jesse was done purposely so that Jason could be the next Bachelor. Yet another thing I can't really prove, but I believe there's a lot of truth to.

JENN: Let's turn to focus on Jason's show for the rest of our questions. So Jason is rejected in some manner on DeAnna's season--depending on which theory you read. He's set up to be the next Bachelor. Did you approach this season to begin with, thinking this guy was the real deal and had a chance at love and it might actually be a good season of a real love story? Or were you expecting it to be no different than past shows?

STEVE: Go back and read what I wrote when he was first cast. I was sold. I thought, "Finally, someone without an agenda to get into Hollywood, someone real, and a single dad that everyone feels sorry for." Oops.

JENN: You got a tip in January about the ATFR pt 1 that was shot. This formed the basis for your revealing information in the 3 video Blogs and your recent Blog. You have reason to believe that the real back story which ABC won't show us--is that Jason wanted Molly all along and just chose Melissa as a ruse going along with producers to break up with her at ATFR and then possibly get engaged at ATFR 2. How is your source connected with the show?

STEVE: Can't answer how my sources are connected with the show, if at all. Just know that these people know stuff and have no reason to lie to me. And as I said in the video and the column, this is what I believe. People don't have to believe this along with me. There will be plenty who say, "Hey, maybe the guy just changed his mind." And that's fine. They can believe that. But I will continue to believe until the day I die that Jason was put up to this and was just doing what he was told. And no one will convince me otherwise.

JENN: Why did the source come to you? Has this same source come to you before in past shows or was this the first you heard from this source? What do you know to be or think their motivation was in coming to you?

STEVE: Nope. This completely fell into my lap this season. The only other story that I broke in Bachelor history was I was the first to report Meredith and Ian broke up. And that fell into my lap to because I knew someone who was close with Ian and they told me.

JENN: Did it ever cross your mind that this source might be feeding you inaccurate information?

STEVE: Nope. Never. And I'm not saying that being naive, I'm saying that's how much I completely trust my sources.

JENN: Do you have any idea why the show's producers would want to go with this storyline? You said something about a love story is not what viewers want--at least according to the powers that be. But I've seen countless posters online over the years say that's what they want. After all, in DeAnna's season, they didn't pull this kind of switcheroo, they just possibly re-shot the finale. Why not just do that here? What are your theories on this?

STEVE: Let's face it, no one wants to see the favorite from episode 1 last all the way til the end, and have a fairytale wedding. That's boring. We're in an age of "shock" TV. This show is 0-for-12 in producing a wedding. Mike Fleiss and company cannot possibly expect people watch his show for a love story. So, they do what they have to do to keep things interesting. And boy do I believe they did this season.

JENN: When do you think Molly found out she was really F1?

STEVE: I don't have a definitive answer to that one. I honestly don't know. From what I can gather, she was not in on it. She did not know until the ATFR taped that that's possibly how it could've ended up. But I could be wrong.

JENN: They've stressed it quite a few times in CH's Blog and on the show--that Jason is not a very good actor. Hmmm. Interesting "coincidence." Do you think any of his scenes with Melissa were just total acting or do you think he had a natural attraction to her and so it was easy to pretend? Why do you think the producers were so enamored of Melissa to want her to be the not so final 1?

STEVE: I think he had an attraction to her. Who wouldn't? She's a very likable girl. I have no idea why the producers decided to make her a pawn in their game this year. She doesn't deserve it and I feel awful for her. The only thing I can think of is that they wanted America to feel sorry for her (a la DeAnna), so they could cast her as the next Bachelorette. But as far as I know, that's not gonna happen. If you were her, would you do it after what they did to you? Or are going to do to you when the finale airs on March 2nd? I sure as hell wouldn't trust them.

JENN: If you honestly had to guess, in your opinion, why do you think Jason went along with the producers and would do this to Melissa? Do you really think it wasn't that he really picked her, changed his mind, so the producers decided to have him break up with her on the ATFR for TV and then get with Molly? What leads you to believe that it happened way before that? That during the filming of the show, that Jason really wanted to be with Molly so they concocted the plan for him to lead on Melissa?

STEVE: My sources. Best way I can answer that. I do not believe he had a change of heart after 2 months, which is what I'm guessing ABC will present it as. It's up to everyone else whether they want to believe what I believe or not.

JENN: What is your opinion of Jason? Fleiss? Chris Harrison?

STEVE: Jason: Was manipulated by ABC and fell into their trap. Only was doing what he was told, even if it meant hurting someone badly in the process. Signed a deal with the devil the minute he agreed to be the Bachelor. Fleiss: People will probably be surprised by this. Genius. He's smarter than a lot of people give him credit for and he's good at what he does. Chris Harrison: Seems like a guy you could have a few beers with and he'd have stories for ages. A little vanilla, not given much to work with in his role, but pulls it off as well as he can.

JENN: Do you think this revelation will lead to the demise of The Bachelor franchise? Do you hope it does?

STEVE: My favorite question. Absolutely not. The funniest part about all this in the last 48 hours for me is listening to all these people scream, "That's it! I'm done with this show! I can't believe they did this!" Please. Get off your high horse. These people will be front and center when March 2nd rolls around for two reasons. #1 – they want to see this all play out. And #2 – a lot want to see me fail. There are plenty of people out there who'd like nothing more than for me to be proven wrong. But when I'm not, I'm guessing I won't be getting any apologies from them either.

JENN: Have you been contacted by ABC about any of your inside info?

STEVE: Nope. And I don't expect to be. I'm not a former contestant. I've never worked for, nor am I currently employed by either ABC or one of their competitors. I'm not contractually obligated to anyone. And I didn't break any copyright laws. I don't see how a guy and his dog talking into a camera expressing his "opinion" can get me into trouble.

JENN: Do you have any other inside info you plan to share with your readers and fans of the show regarding this current B13 show?

STEVE: Not yet. Still working on a couple of things. Could be a doozy next week, so stay tuned.

JENN: How do you think this information will change the way you Blog about the show in the future, if they do continue to have future installments?

STEVE: Actually, it'll go back to the basics next season. Just me making fun of it like I always do. I mean, before this season I knew the final four and order of elimination, but I usually do every season. I don't consider that much of a spoiler. What happened this season is definitely a shocker, hence the reason Fleiss and Chris Harrison were pumping it up. But man, next season? With no clues to give out, or dirt to spill, it's back to the old grind. This info has been a godsend for the site in terms of viewership and notoriety, no doubt. And I'm the biggest tool on the planet for not capitalizing on it monetarily.

JENN: If they do continue this series, what do you think they will do to top the shocker in this current show? If you were the Big Kahuna Fleiss, what would you do?

STEVE: Well, they hit the pinnacle this season. Nothing can top this. Outside of a pregnancy or something. Or a murder from some past contestant. But that's pretty morbid. Wouldn't hope for something like that.

JENN: If you were asked by The Bachelor/Fleiss or some other network for a similar show, to be the next Bachelor, would you do it?

STEVE: Oh god no. No interest whatsoever. First off, I don't fit the profile of the type of guy they cast on the Bachelor. I'm 33, I have a job that isn't ritzy, I have a receding hairline, and I don't have a 12 pack abs. Plus, do you honestly think they'd cast "Reality Steve"? Please. I've been making fun of their show for 15 seasons, why the hell would they ever put me on it? I'm having too much fun writing about it anyway. So no, I'd never do it.

JENN: So you wouldn't go on TB. Is there another reality show you'd love to go on if you could?

STEVE: I have no interest in being on any reality TV show. Hell, it was tough enough to look at myself on those You Tube videos.

JENN: Do you follow any of the other Blogs out there? Do you follow the various forums--Jokers, FORT, etc..? Or do you just generally get the gist of what's going on through your Blog comments or people e-mailing you?

STEVE: Not until this season, and specifically, not until after I started giving out the clues. I just wanted to see what people were guessing. I visit more TV/entertainment sites than I do blogs every day.

JENN: If you could pick any former Bachelor/ettes or contestants to interview, who are you dying to talk to and why?

STEVE: Brad Womack. And he knows it. We were all set to do an interview during this past summer, but he just said he wanted to put everything behind him and move on.

JENN: Are you aware of how long these people are under contract to ABC/Fleiss? Surely there is someone from a long ago show now out of their contract who would be willing to talk about the process to you and what really goes on? Maybe Chelsea will be able to chat sometime soon in the future? Would you consider pursuing interviews with any of these people? And by chance, do you have any planned interviews in the works?

STEVE: I believe they're under contract for a year after their finale airs. But I don't know necessarily what that entails, because some former contestants don't seem to adhere by that, whereas some completely shut down. It's weird. I mean, I think the fact that they are so closely monitored with contracts and threats of lawsuits pretty much tells you all you need to know about this show. If everything was real, and everything was on the up and up, why wouldn't anyone be able to interview Melissa and ask, "Hey, so what really happened?" Because they don't want people to know what goes on "behind the curtain", that's why.

JENN: Yet a funny but semi-serious question: Have you thought about creating a 12-Step Reality Steve Bachelor Program for those who are way too obsessed with this show?

STEVE: No, but I probably should. Could probably make some money off that.

JENN: Is there any question or questions that with all these e-mails and interviews, that no one is asking you that you're surprised they aren't? Any further comments you want to make?

STEVE: None that I can think of. I think you pretty much covered everything outside of what my social security and bank account numbers were...ha ha!

AFTER THE FINAL
REALITY STEVE INTERVIEW:

LET'S CLEAR UP WHAT'S
FACT VS. SPECULATION


After conducting the interview and posting part 1, there seemed to be a lot of extra confusion on the boards popping up in the fallout over Reality Steve's big revelation. It seemed like there was a lot of confusion and spin, and theories, and even rumors about what Reality Steve was saying. So, I wanted to make it clear for everyone--and myself--just what's fact and then what's speculation. I didn't really break this down in my interview questions so I'd like to try this angle for everyone.

The gist of where Reality Steve stands, is that his source told him what went down and whatever they told him led him to believe it happened the way he explained it. The fact that he can't prove it is that he doesn't have tangible evidence other than the e-mails which he doesn't feel right in revealing. He just has what he heard from his source who he confirmed as reliable--and whose information should be confirmed next Monday, March 2nd. And without revealing his source, he's kind of stuck at people just taking him at his word. But he is resolute in stating that even 30+ years from today, he will still firmly believe that everything happened as he opines.

JENN: Let's take a minute to break it down for people. There's so much misinformation, speculation, theories, and people trying to figure out what you've Blogged about to the point it's really gotten out of hand. I think it would be great for all of us to just break it down and separate the fact from the speculation--your own and others.

STEVE: Here's the main problem with where everything stands right now: All the stuff I've speculated about (planned from the beginning, Jason doing what he was told to do, etc), I can't prove. And ABC will never admit to it, because that basically would put an end to the show as we know it. When I came out in January with my "exclusive" news, that news was the shocker about the ATFR 1 already being taped, Jason dumps Melissa, and is now with Molly. That's the only "fact" in all of this. And on March 2nd, that will be proven correct. HOW they go about getting to that outcome is beyond me, but now that its leaked, they will do their best to spin. Everything else is something I will believe til the day I die, that Jason was told to do this, and he was just following orders. Can I prove it? No. But that is what I will believe from here on out based on the information I was given. I'm presenting as much evidence to back that up as possible without revealing my sources. People can choose to believe along with me or not.

Until there is a sit down interview with Fleiss/Jason/Melissa/Molly and one of them agrees to spill the truth about everything, this will all be he said/she said til the end of time. And that's never going to happen. The fact that these people remain under ABC's contract for a year after the show airs and are basically ABC's little slaves, I think shows a lot about what this show is about. Why do that if there's nothing to hide? Why wouldn't I be able to do a tell all interview with Melissa the day the show ends and have her tell me what really went down? Because ABC doesn't want you getting "behind the curtain."

My biggest evidence or "proof" in all of this, is this email exchange I have between Melissa and Jason, the day after the ATFR 1 taped. It basically confirms EVERYTHING I've been preaching about this show, but I can't release it. I'd feel like scum. It was a private conversation between those two and I don't feel right releasing it, even if I "X"'ed out the email addresses.

JENN: So based upon your inside info/source, tell us:
Do you know for a fact that the producers had this plan from the beginning of filming The Bachelor, to have Jason dump F1 and have Jason pick F2 at the 1st ATFR show?

STEVE: Do I know this for a fact? No. But this is what I believe happened based on what I've been told.

JENN: Do you know for a fact that Jason agreed to go along with the producers to pick Melissa even though he really wanted Molly?

STEVE: Do I know this for a fact? No. But this is what I believe happened based on what I've been told.

JENN: Do you know for a fact that Jason continued to see Molly after returning home from filming prior to the filming of the ATFR around Jan. 18th?

STEVE: Do I know this for a fact? No. But this is what I believe happened based on what I've been told, and, this might actually get brought out at the ATFR 1 taping. I believe Jason informed Melissa during the taping of the ATFR 1 that he was in contact with Molly since filming ended in NZ. Whether ABC chooses to show that is a different story.

JENN: Do you know for a fact that when Melissa was dumped at the taping of the 1st ATFR on Jan. 18, she had no idea it was coming and she really thought she was Jason's F1?

STEVE: Do I know for a fact? No. But I have every reason to believe that Melissa had no idea this was coming and was devastated at being embarrassed at the ATFR 1 taping.

JENN: Do you know for a fact that Molly wasn't in on it until the filming of the show ended?

STEVE: No, I don't know for a fact, and as I brought up in the You Tube videos and in my column, I think that's the million dollar question: What was Molly's role in all this? I'm hearing different things, but nothing I can prove one way or another.

JENN: Do you know for a fact whether or not Molly knew what was coming at the 1st ATFR - that she would be picked as the real F1 after Jason dumped Melissa?

STEVE: No, I don't know that at all. I don't know what Molly knew or when she knew it - if she knew anything at all. I think finding the truth to that answer might solve a lot of peoples headaches though.

JENN: Did the e-mails tell you anything new or did you already know what they referred to from your previous sources?

STEVE: They verified everything that I'd been led to believe about what I heard went down this season.

JENN: So based upon the facts that you do know, what have you stated in your Blog that is just your speculation?

STEVE: When I came forward with "exclusive" news on Jan. 27th, it was that I knew there was going to be a "shocker" this season. That "shocker" (that Mike Fleiss and Chris Harrison both hyped up in recent weeks), was that the ATFR 1 was filmed in January, and the outcome of that ATFR 1, was that Jason breaks up with Melissa and "starts" dating Molly. That will be proven on March 2nd. I never said anything else was fact. It was always what I was led to believe. Til the end of time, when people ask me what I thought of the Jason Mesnick season of the Bachelor, I will always believe he was put up to this by people above him, and he agreed to do it. Whether people choose to believe that along with me is their decision. But I think there's substantial evidence to prove that's what happened.

STAY TUNED FOR NEXT WEEK'S DRAMATIC CONCLUSION
TO WHAT HAS BEEN A VERY INTERESTING
AND INTRIGUING SEASON OF THE BACHELOR...

Finale Recap coming up March 2nd and possibly another March 3rd! What to do after the show is over at this Blog? Stay tuned...

JASON & CHRIS ARE BUDS! THEY CHILL OVER GOOD TIMES...

Memorable Moments, Fun Facts, Quotes, & Things To Ponder:

Jason and Chris get serious about what really went down. Hmmm. Do they really?

Jason never saw any of the controversy surrounding Megan. And he never heard her trucker mouth rants either!

They had to go there. They made us relive that totally awkward moment when Stephanie chestbutts Sophia on the beach. Awe.

When Jason opened the bag with the dead dove, his first thought was, HOLA CRAPPOLA!

"What you did in that hot tub almost consummated a marriage. Ha. Ha. Ha." --Chris Harrison

"Cinemax called. They said it was tooooo hot!" --Chris Harrison

In case you were worried that Chris Harrison is a "dirty bird," he threw in this quote: "It was too much for me. I was too embarrassed to watch."

Chris asks Jason about being in his tent with Molly and we get a "Whoa easy buddy!" from Jason.

Chris Harrison pushes the dirty bird limit a little bit more when he notes, "Three hours is a lot of sex!" But in case anyone was worried about what really happened, they totally put it into baseball terms: 1ST Base in a Tent. Nothing more. Nothing less. That's their story and they're sticking to it!

Horses freak Jason out.

Molly likes to wear Jason's pants. On the golf course. Awe.

After the GH date where Jason got to kiss a lot of girls, Jason tried to fake kill himself. Hmmm...

Jason had two shots at a hip hop career and he totally bombed!

Natalie doesn't like jewelry! 25 cent bracelets out of a machine DO NOT count as jewelry. That's what Da Bears told her!

Does anyone else think that Natalie's spray tan acts as a Fashion Force Field to keep out sticks and stones and words that never hurt? Just sayin'!

Natalie is totally lost without her Blackberry and her Ipod--it's like totally foreign to her! Like whaaaaa!

Loving bears is NOT superficial!

"Chris you NEED to calm down!" --Natalie (Huh?!)

DO NOT SPLASH NATALIE. I REPEAT. DO NOT SPLASH NATALIE. OR she'll sic some bears on your #@$!

"I can't wait until prince charming gets off his lazy butt and sweeps me off my feet!" --Jillian

Could this possible be the theme for the next Bachelorette: Slaying Dragons to find Your Prince?

Jason is 70% mustard. 20% ketchup. And 10% Ogopogo!

Might Jillian be our next Bachelorette?! Hmmm...

THINGS TO PONDER:

Can reality show rejects find love? Apparently, yes they can!

Did anyone notice, Chef Robert (D's season) is still sporting the pink polo with the popped collar--and still spritzing himself with Pam! Olive oil Pam that is!

Do you think when (if?) Jason breaks up with Melissa next week at the ATFR as rumored and tells her "it's just not working out" his pants will catch on fire?! (For those of you hanging out on that load of pumpkins, that's liar liar pants on fire!)

THE REAL DIRT. AHA! WE KNEW IT!
THE BEHIND THE SCENES DIRT IS...

Naomi has a OCD complex of needing to smell her arm pits like every 10 minutes. Classy!

The umbrellas revolted and were mad as hell and weren't going to take it anymore!

Melissa was stalked and attacked by killer bees!

And Jason is EXTREMELY happy!

PT I: Interview With REALITY STEVE

PT I: INTERVIEW WITH
REALITY STEVE

- ABC’s NEXT BACHELOR!

(Totally kidding people, that was a joke!)


So you're wondering…just who is this Reality Steve guy? He's known on some message boards in recent weeks as "The Dude," "Stevie Baby," and even "A Legend in His Own Mind." To those who regularly follow his Blog (www.realitysteve.com), he's just your average guy who enjoys Blogging about Reality TV and making everyone laugh along the way and learn not to take all this hoopla so seriously.

Amidst all the drama of the last week once he revealed his big Bachelor Jason bombshell (That Jason "picks" Melissa, dumps her and then goes back to Molly-and that this was all planned from the get go!), he took a little time out of his busy day and hanging with his adorable dog Maddie to answer some pretty AMAZING questions about himself, his Blog, and his fascination with Reality TV and of course ABC's The Bachelor!

JENN: Tell us a little about yourself--outside of the whole Blog/Reality TV side. And what is your background in either writing or radio?

STEVE: I pretty much grew up in Orange County, California. Had lived in Southern California my whole life until July of 2006 when I moved to Frisco, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. It was a job opportunity that I couldn't pass up, and I had nothing keeping me in LA anymore. My background is sports talk radio and the opportunities were dying out there, so I decided it was time for a change. Don't regret it one bit.

No real writing background other than having a weekly sports column at my college newspaper. My background is sports talk radio. Did that on and off for 8 years after graduating college in 1997.

JENN: What did you get your degree in? And what are your hobbies outside of this Blog?

STEVE: I was a communications major. I like laying around with Maddie, going to comedy clubs, going to the movies, golfing, going to the gym, and just relaxing. I don't have much stress in my life at all, so I don't do well when it comes to drama. This is about the biggest drama in my life since I moved here 2 1/2 years ago.

JENN: How did you come to start Blogging about Reality TV shows? Have you watched The Bachelor since the beginning of the show?

STEVE: It started with "Joe Millionaire." I remember watching the previews going, "Wow, I wonder if these women fall for this." So I watched it, was amazed at the stupidity of it, so the next day I emailed three friends giving my review of the show with my humor thrown in, and they thought it was funny. So I kept doing it for every episode. By the end of the season, unbeknownst to me, they were forwarding it on to their friends, and I had people emailing me asking if they could be on my "Joe Millionaire mailing list." When I asked who they heard about it from, they'd tell me, and I didn't recognize that persons name. So by then, I knew it had circulated around the internet.

The next "dating" reality show to start after "JM" was the "Bachelorette" - Tristas season. So I started in on that one, and I've covered every Bachelor and Bachelorette season since.

JENN: What attracts you to Reality TV?

STEVE: The ridiculousness of it all. I've always had a fascination with other people's relationships, and what better way to feed that fascination than with these shows? They are pure crap and easy to make fun of. So I do.

JENN: You do a reality roundup column from time to time and I've noticed you mention Survivor before in it. I've never followed the fan community online for that show, but I do watch the show. Do you think Survivor is as bad as The Bachelor as far as the "reality" of it goes or do you think it's closer to being more real in the way that it is set up?

STEVE: Survivor is a hell of a lot more real than The Bachelor and is one of the most interesting reality shows ever created, because it's definitely a great social experiment to watch.

JENN: Aside from The Bachelor, what is your favorite reality show?

STEVE: If I had to pick just one, I'd say Survivor. I've watched it the longest. But American Idol is catching up.

JENN: Have you ever watched an episode of The Bachelor looking to see a real love story? In other words, from the beginning of your watching this series, did you believe in it? What were the red flags that clued you into the fact that it's not as real as they'd like us to believe?

STEVE: In the beginning I was intrigued by it. But the minute they cast Bob Guiney, and then I heard stories about comments he made about Estella (the woman he chose) while at Trista and Ryan's wedding, I pretty much knew this was all for show. The fact they cast him was a joke. And then when I heard what I heard, I figured, "Yeah, this isn't real." And the phoniness hasn't stopped since. Well, except for a couple seasons that I really enjoyed.

JENN: Do you have a favorite Bachelor? Bachelorette? If so, why?

STEVE: Tie for my favorite Bachelors. Charlie O'Connell and Brad Womack. Charlie for the sole reason his season was the most real. No extravagant dates. They filmed the whole thing in his hometown, and they did a live finale. Why they haven't done this since is beyond me. Probably should since they're the longest running couple in the shows history outside of Trista and Ryan. I don't count Byron and Mary because she likes to use his face as a punching bag when she's sloshed.

Brad Womack for the sole reason he was the only Bachelor who legitimately did not give in to the manipulation that this show brings. The guy didn't like any of the 25 women, so he didn't choose any. When everyone was crucifying him for not picking Jenni or DeAnna, I was on my hands applauding with tears in my eyes like David Hasselhoff at the American Idol 5 finale….ha ha. Brad is a stand up guy, we keep in contact occasionally through email, and I really respected what he did on the show.

JENN: I liked Brad as well, I was shocked he didn't pick anyone but I thought that was ok. I too am amazed at how quickly people jump to making someone they've been raving about as fabulous into a villain just like that. Will the Brad interview you wanted to have at some point, ever happen?

STEVE: Nope. Doesn't look like it. He's put it all behind him now and doesn't really want to talk about it.

JENN: Who was the worst ever Bachelor and Bachelorette and why do you feel this way?

STEVE: That's easy. Lorenzo. Just look at all 13 Bachelors they've cast. Tell me which one would stick out like a sore thumb if you lined them up all in a row? Just a bizarre casting. Some guy with royalty in his genes if you go back a billion years who sells dog products. And oh yeah, he was shorter than Chris Harrison. Speaking of Chris Harrison, even he admits Lorenzo was the worst Bachelor they've ever had.

JENN: Any favorites among the contestants vying for The Bachelor or The Bachelorette?

STEVE: Oh yeah. Lisa from Lorenzo's season. The girl who finished 3rd behind Sadie and Jen. There's something about her I've always liked, plus she helped me out with a "Dr. Reality Steve" column back in the day. Michele, from Brad's season. She also helped out, but we've kept in touch for a couple years now and I actually plan on meeting her when I'm in NY on business next month. And hopefully we'll make out…ha ha. Alexis and Amanda from Andy Baldwin's season as well are really cool girls. This season, I've always been attracted to Molly and Megan, two girls who probably couldn't be any more different. Which proves I don't discriminate in what I like.

JENN: Do you keep in contact with any of the past show contestants? Have they ever contacted you about your Blog or what you've written about them--either to set the record straight, give praise, or even critique you?

STEVE: Yeah, the ones mentioned above outside of the girls from this season. Jeremy, as I've written about, I talk to on occasion. He did an interview for the website after his season ended. He's a really good guy. I've had a few former contestants contact me saying they really like the column and don't take it too seriously, and I appreciate that. Look, I'm having fun with it. If anybody takes what I say seriously, they're reading too much into it. But I do realize the column isn't for everybody.

JENN: You reference the Jeremy interview. How were you able to do an interview with him and not with Chelsea since they both were under contract--elaborate on this as best you can.

STEVE: Kinda goes back to my answer above. I got in contact with Jeremy through the radio station I worked for. They were doing their show from the Dallas Boat Show at a convention center downtown. Well, the host called me the night before knowing I had a reality TV website and said they're having Jeremy Anderson on the next day and when they brought up my name to him, Jeremy was familiar with the site, so he said he'd talk to me. I went down there, met Jeremy and talked with him for an hour or so, and we've kept in touch on and off since.

Chelsea I just found on MySpace. Asked her if I could do an interview, we spoke on the phone for over an hour and she was furious at ABC for what she perceived they did to her, I was all set to record the interview a few days later, but I guess they got to her and told her she probably shouldn't do any interviews with me. I never really got an explanation from her, but I could read between the lines. She spoke to me in anger without thinking too much about the trouble she was in, so that's why I didn't run with the stuff she told me.

JENN: Everyone seems to have sources online. I confess, I have none! Who are your sources for current or past shows? (If you cannot reveal names and I don't expect you to, how are they associated with the show?) And how to you even begin to know if a source is real?

STEVE: Can't really answer that. I'll never reveal my sources, which is why they're sources. I know they're real because, well, they are.

JENN: Aside from Jason's show, B13, do you have any inside information on past shows as to something that wasn't real or something shocking or gossipy that viewers might be interested in knowing. There have been rumors online for ages about the various shows. Can you shed any light on any rumors, reveal any to be the truth, etc.? Something along the lines of--for example--Shayne Lamas was a plant and Chelsea was taken to the F2 unbeknownst to her to be the dumpee? Any truth to that?

STEVE: I can confirm that one. All true. And that Matt Grant had $15k of dental work done before his season because he's a Brit and their teeth are bad. I have lots of other stuff but for the sake of the people who really like this show and want to believe in fairytales, I probably shouldn't ruin it.

JENN: What is your goal in writing your Blog? I can see entertainment as an aspect--it's snarky and funny. But is there a deeper meaning, say to reveal to the naive out there that this show is not as real as they would like us to believe? Something else?

STEVE: Yeah, Id say that's it. I've been saying for years that what you're seeing is not real. It's all editing. It's all manipulation. I think this season, when I found out what I did, something just sent me over the top. That's why I spilled the beans. But here's the tricky part: ABC will never admit it, and there's no way I can prove it. So basically, it'll be a he said/she said thing til the end of time.

JENN: Has your Blog ever led to any exciting friendships or dates? Stalkers or other crazies? Elaborate on this for us.

STEVE: Friendships, yes. But strictly on an email level. I'd say I have quite a few email relationships that were started from people on the Blog. Stalkers or crazies? There have been a couple, but nothing that ever had me worried to the point of changing my number or calling the cops. Dates? A few here and there, but nothing ever got serious. I understand there are a lot of women who enjoy my writing, this its funny, and maybe think they could see dating me, but I'm telling you, I'm not all that exciting really. Plus, I'm already spoken for with my dog, Maddie. Ha ha.

JENN: Just for fun because we can't forget Maddie. What does your dog Maddie really think of all this hoopla? She's very cute by the way!

STEVE: Thank you. She's the best. The funny thing is, I was never a dog person growing up. Never had a dog in the house, and I was pretty indifferent on them. But my sister has two dogs, so I got used to them, and I realized I wanted my own one day. Saw Maddie at the kennel last year, and knew I had to have her. Kinda corny, but its true. She is perfect for me.

COMING UP: PART 2
WITH REALITY STEVE:

THE MOST DRAMATIC
INTERVIEW QUESTIONS EVER!

(Sorry had to throw in a cheesy Bachelor
drama moment! Gotta love it! Or not…)


***Part 2 will post on Wed. Feb. 25 where Steve and I get into some behind the scenes chatter and theories about Brad and DeAnna's seasons and then get to the burning questions on your mind about Jason's season and just what has really been transpiring and what is to come!***

I'm Not Here For A Fling & Other Thoughts To Ponder...

Ok the most shocking and totally dramatic thing from this episode is...

I got some ice cream the other day at the market. Love that stuff! Anyhoo, I grabbed some pints of Haagen Dazs. The usual mix. Some vanilla. Some chocolate chip cookie dough. The usual suspects. I discover I got a pint of peanut butter chocolate! Like totally weird--I never get that flavor! So I'm watching the show, taking my usual notes, giggling at the cheese of it all. And I decided to just "chill" and I grab a bowl of this PB chocolate wonder during a commercial break. I'm digging in right at that moment our dear Mol asks J what his favorite ice cream is. He says--Peanut Butter Chocolate! How freaky is that?!

So then it came to me like a zany vision board in a flash of roses, cheesy one-liners, hot tub moments, champagne toasts and rejection limo rides of shame, that I just know how this is going to end! And how is it going to end, you may be wondering? ... I totally ate the whole bowl and it was AMAZINGLY delicious! And J's totally not giving Jillian a rose tonight. On to the show highlights...

JASON READS MORE CUE CARDS ABOUT THE GIRLS:

Jill - Adorable. Fun. Funny. Strong. Easy...to talk to! BUT, is she too independent?!

Mol - Attraction from the start. Gorgeous eyes. Stare at them. All night long. BUT, take it to the next level?!

Mel - Instant connection. Reminds him of MeAnna & His Ex. BUT, what about these missing parents?!

Jillian & Jason - Falling Off A Cliff...

Memorable Moments, Fun Facts, & Things To Ponder:

Jillian is the luckiest girl in the world! That is, until the next rose ceremony...

Another picnic and a blankie! Awe.

Jillian is looking for a best friend -- to help her search for the Ogopogo!

Jason freaks out at Jillian's dinner outfit after man-handle-hauling her out of the SUV!

What's with the winery dates with these two?! One in Canada, now in New Zealand! Is this the new "Sorry I'm Not That Interested in You, So You're Placing Third Bachelor Booty Call" ?!

Talk about a little hot tub grab a$! Cue the cheesy guitar music...

Chris Harrison's Note to Jillian & Jason:

Jillian and Jason, welcome to New Zealand! I hope you're enjoying your stay and that eerie moment when it seemed like Jason just might push you over that cliff because you were talking and rambling on and on and he just about couldn't take it any more! If you decide you can still trust him after that, you can use this key to run over to the fantasy suite and mack out awkwardly in the hot tub! And I'll throw in some hot dogs and some mustard on me. Love, Chris."

My Prediction: Sayonara Babe! Here's a couple packages of Oscar Mayer weenies as a lovely parting gift...

Molly & Jason - Falling Off A Bridge...

Memorable Moments, Fun Facts, & Things To Ponder:

Molly runs like a mile in the rain to greet Jason!

Molly says OMG! Like 1000 times too many! Make it stopppppppppp!

After arguing for like half an hour about how to count to 3, Jason and Molly take a huge leap of faith. Off a bridge.

Molly has a list of like 200 questions for Jason. And if he doesn't chill and answer them all, she's going to make him bungee jump again!

Jason's favorite ice cream is peanut butter chocolate. If he could eat only one thing it would be a hamburger. His favorite place is Greece. And he swears he saw Elvis in concert like yesterday while kicking it in some old-school Air-Jordan sneakers!

Nice fur rug under the dinner table!

Molly is not a mushy gushy kind of gal!

Could these words be a kind of freakish Fleissian Foreshadowing: Molly to Jason: "Are you afraid you'll pick 1 and then wish you picked another person?" Doh!

Molly totally takes control of the situation and gives Jason her own fantasy suite card...er..question!

Chris Harrison's Note to Molly & Jason:

We didn't get to hear it, but I think it went someting like this, "Molly and Jason, Chris Harrison here. Molly like totally likes to be in control if you know what I mean, so grab this key and go jump in that spiffy white bathtub we've set up with the leaky drain! She's got another list of questions so you're in for a long night dude! Love, C-Man."

My Prediction: Sloppy Seconds = Future Bachelorette...Or Not....

Melissa & Jason - & The Mystery of the Missing Parents...

Memorable Moments, Fun Facts, & Things To Ponder:

The bar is totally set high after AMAZING dates with Jillian on a cliff and Molly's bungee jumping leap of faith! So Melissa & Jason hang out on...Winston Churchill's former boat! Okaaaay!

Melissa is always the dumpee, never the dumper!

Anyone else notice. They're in a steamy hot tub overlooking an AMAZING view. And Jason just can't stop harping about Melissa's missing parents! (Enter Producer: They're in the witness protection program dude! Now get over it and make out some more with Melissa!) Or something like that...

Chris Harrison's Note to Melissa & Jason:

"Melissa and Jason. Welcome to New Zealand. I hope you're enjoying your stay because I'm sick of writing out these cards, thank god this is the last one! I don't know about you Melissa but Jason has totally been enjoying his stay here if you know what I mean! We've convinced Jason to stop sleuthing around about your parents, so before he grabs that bone again, take this key and stay as a couple in the spiffy suite we set up for you. Be sure to charge your room service to Fleiss, he's the Big Kahuna. Love, Chris."

My Prediction: Ding Ding...We Have A Winner! OR DO WE?!?...

THE QUOTABLE BACHELOR/ETTE:

"How adorable is she!" --Jason on Jillian

"Want to do "the Titanic"? --Jason

"Thanks Babe!" --Jillian

"I have an AMAZING connection with Jason!" --Jillian

"I knew if we spent the night together it would be a long night." --Jillian

"OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" --Molly

"Am I the only one screaming?!" --Jason

"Let's do it again!" --Molly

"I took control. I think he liked it!" --Molly

"So this is a fantasy suite!" --Melissa

"I can't' get enough of Melissa!" --Jason

"I'm not here for a fling." --Jason

MORE THOUGHTS TO PONDER...

Was that a wine barrel or a whiskey barrel at the rose ceremony?! Classy!

Did anyone else think that was a mean joke that Molly played on Melissa when she told her they had to show up in square dancing dresses for a DO-SI-DO down at the next Rose Ceremony!

Did it seem like the girls were reading prepared statements in their final video pleas?!

MOST DRAMATIC FINALE IN BACHELOR HISTORY...

Is this going to be like all those "most dramatic rose ceremony ever!" moments we keep waiting for with each passing episode?! That always turn out to be nothing! Or, do we have a doozy of a finale coming for once and for all in Bachelor Land!? What do you make of the following statement from Chris Harrison about the 1st After The Final Rose taping:

"What you are about to witness is potentially so dramatic, so emotionally difficult we decided out of respect for the parties involved to keep the taping of tonight's show as intimate as possible..."

Notice the candles in the background! Could it be a proposal of some kind? A seance with Naomi's mom for Rosie the suicidal dove?! Comment on your theories! Stay tuned...

Be One With The Hula Hoop & Other Thoughts To Ponder...

All righty then...that was sure something I tell ya. Was Naomi's hometown date about the most out there date in the history of The Bachelor/ette? I'm trying to remember but I think this beats the freakish actor parents in Matt's season and even Ryan's mom's OBSESSION with THAILAND in Jen Schefft's season! Hula hoops, reincarnation, and one dead dove! Ok let's get to it...This episode's theme: PICNICS & PARENTS!

AWESOME FUN FACTS:

Jason packs like 21 shirts for the hometown dates according to Ty.

Jillian once touched feet with a Ogopogo as a child. As in Loch Ness monster!!

Molly is a winner! And daddy says there's no crying in golf, just big smiles!

Jason is like an Indigo Kid! He's lived a previous life as a mom. Awe.

Naomi has wings!

Melissa really likes her shorty shorts! Stretchy ones rock!

What's up with the picnics everyone went on?!

JASON READS SOME CUE CARDS ABOUT THE LADIES:

Jill is fun. Sense of humor. Strong. But how much of a connection do they really have?

Naomi is a free spirit. But is she really ready for Jason and Ty?

Mol has the prettiest eyes he's ever seen. But is it deep enough?

Mel is the girl who is so beautiful and he can't wrap his head around how she came for him. But is she too perfect?

JILLIAN & JASON IN CANADA

Memorable Moments:

Jillian's dad wraps Jason up in a Canadian Flag the moment he sets foot in the door!

Wouldn't you know it!? More chit chat about hot dogs and mustard! I'd swear that girl works for Oscar Mayer!

Jillian's mom interrogates Jason with a huge scroll of questions!

Grandma is glad Jillian has found gorgeous Jason. But if it doesn't work out, she'll be headed up north to be married off to some crazy Ukranian dude!

Grandma initiates Jason into the family with the time honored tradition of Canadian Boxer Headgear!

MOLLY & JASON IN MICHIGAN

Memorable Moments:

Molly has a special golfing outfit for Jason because jeans on a golf course at the country club are just soooooo not appropriate!

It's really a big deal for Molly to bring someone home to Mom and Dad because they have to totally like dressing up in funny ha ha headgear!

Jason makes a pretty hot Indian: Chief Kissalotagirls

Jason loves Molly's eyes but he can take or leave her joker mouth And she'd totally be a man without the long hair. Or something like that...

NAOMI & JASON IN CALIFORNIA

Memorable Moments:

Lots of squealing. Too much squealing. Make it stop!

Naomi's family busts out the hula hoops. Be ONE with the hula hoops! Jason is NOT ONE with the hula hoop!

A dove (named Rosie) killed itself by hitting Naomi's mom's windshield. Totally did itself in, it was NOT her mom's fault. No siree...That's her story and she's sticking to it!

Windshield Repair...$250.00
Shovel...$9.99
Brown Paper Bag... .25 cents
Rosie The Suicidal Dove's Funeral...PRICELESS!

MELISSA & JASON IN TEXAS

Memorable Moments:

Melissa makes a gift for Ty - A tooth fairy box. Awe.

"I know you really wanted to meet my parents! But instead you'll meet my best friends Steph and Morgan. But don't bother sleuthing around for clues, they know nothing about my parents who are secretly in the witness protection program..."

Melissa's friends are totally tired of her being a 5th wheel!

THOUGHTS TO PONDER:

Did Jason and Jillian try searching for the Ogopogo?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ogopogo

How was the horseback riding between Jason and Naomi that we aparently didn't get to see!?

Did anyone catch the BIG sigh from Chris Harrison right before he delivered his famous line: "Ladies. Jason. It's the final rose tonight. Let's wrap this shindig up so I can get home to the wifey!"

What is the shocking twist next week?

Can We Get A Few More Scarves In Here & Other Thoughts...

Soooo sssssssssssssssexxxxxxxy or not. A snake clasp dress, wow, the perfect mommy look:) Jason's exccccccccccccited...

First off a shout out to our great host, whose hosting duties we love to snark about but without that champagne glass banging maneuver or that "ladies this is the final rose" suspense or those deliberation room witty zingers, it just wouldn't be the same show we've all come to love! Am I right?!

I couldn't resist last week at Chris Harrison's Blog, posting a comment about his champagne glass banging skills which I so often joke about here, and so I'm sure you'll be thrilled to note the response in this week's Blog:

"One of my many, many talents is walking out and clinking a glass. I have broken one glass in all my years of skillfully tapping a knife or backwards spoon (a couple times we haven't been able to find a knife, so they gave me a spoon that I turned around. I told you I had skill) on the champagne flute. It was last season and Deanna and the guys got in the hot tub during a cocktail party. They were pretty far away and it was loud, so I had to tap it harder to make it louder...well on the second tap it broke. Being the pro I am, I quickly recovered and finished the job." Check out Chris's Blog for more insider info!

Not so much drama this week--it was a love fest indeed among the ladies! In fact, Jason had better watch out or some of these girls might just choose each other!

GIRLIE GIRL MOMENTS:

Jillian and Molly are holding hands as they enter the hotel.

Melissa and Jillian take a bubble bath together.

Jillian and Naomi are the "Lady and the Tramp" and share some messy spaghetti!

Jillian, Molly, Melissa, and Naomi have a good cry/hug fest together after the rose ceremony.

--Mud mask

LET'S HIT THE TOWN IN STYLE

Where's the rest of them?! Jason wants an answer to this burning question when Melissa changes into her stretchy PANTS...er...shorts...

OPEN YOUR HEART BECAUSE LOVE IS ON THE AIR

Jason & Molly, Stephanie, and Jillian

Memorable Moments:

While steering the ferry, Stephanie is so engrossed in looking at Jason she practically runs it aground!

Molly nearly punches Jillian off the ferry into the water! And there would have been NO witnesses and that would have been her story and she would have stuck to it! Just sayin'!

Molly is not a beet girl!

Jillian thinks Jason will find her family to be a HOOT!
