Ashley Hebert's Sister Chrystie Corns Was On an Episode of 'Extreme Couponing'

When Ashley Hebert‘s sister Chrystie Corns showed up to meet her sibling’s potential spouses on The Bachelorette Monday night, I got the impression that she was trying to get camera time for herself. Maybe that wasn’t such a bad guess- the Kat Von D lookalike has already tried her hand at reality TV by appearing on an episode of TLC’s Extreme Couponing. More »

Love Lessons from 'The Bachelorette': Let a Dude Propose Before You Dump Him

It’s the finale of The Bachelorette! After weeks of watching Ashley Hebert humiliate herself on live TV and eventually winnow a group of guys down to some pretty cute ones, last night’s 33 hour finale episode finally brought an end to the season. In case you forgot, we’re down to two gentlemen – Ben “Beneff” F and JP. In the preview clip, there are roughly 27 “amazing”s, 41 “put myself out there”s and 99 “connection”s. More »

Did Religion Play a Role in Constantine’s Decision to Quit ‘The Bachelorette’?

Did Religion Play a Role in Constantine's Decision to Quit 'The Bachelorette'?

This week, it was a big surprise when Constantine Tzortzis – who seemed really into Ashley and had been getting a positive edit all season – suddenly told Bachelorette Ashley Hebert that he didn’t think he could stay on the show. Considering she was down to only three guys, he excused himself from the Fantasy Suite and left Ben and JP as the last two guys standing. However, Constantine’s explanation of why he was leaving sounded weird and kind of fake – he talked a lot, but he didn’t say very much. There were some references to not being sure and to needing more time, but they seemed to contradict stuff he’d said earlier in the season. However, some online speculation could shine a light into Constantine’s actual motivations – rumors are swirling that Constantine’s strict Greek Orthodox views made it impossible for him to propose to someone not of the same faith.

Love Lessons from 'The Bachelorette': You Can't Fake Passion, But You Can Fake Tears

Fiji Time! Not only is Fiji my favorite kind of bottled water, it’s my favorite location on The Bachelorette so far, because it means we’re down to three guys, which means this season is almost over. Ashley gives the obligatory Fiji Tourism Voiceover Ad at the beginning of the episode, followed by the inevitable recap of the whole season. You know, these episodes would only be 20 minutes long if you took out all the parts where they recap a) previous episodes and b) current episodes. More »

5 Facts from the Ali and Roberto 'Bachelorette' Followup Episode

One thing about The Bachelor and The Bachelorette is that they’re ostensibly about finding love but are more about finding hookups. As a result, the show loves to trot out the few remaining successful couples. This week, we revisited last season’s Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, and her fiance Roberto Martinez. They’re here to remind us that the show works for some people and do some damage control for Ashley. More »

Love Lessons from 'The Bachelorette': You Aren't a Jealous Stalker If You're Hot

We’re down to four guys, which means it’s time for hometown dates. In case you forgot who the four remaining guys were, Ashley reminds us about Beneff, Constantine, Ames, and JP. I have to say – Ashley did a good job choosing her final four. They’re not all going to be on the cover of Men’s Health next week, but they’re all nice and sweet and capable of using adverbs properly. More »

Love Lessons from 'The Bachelorette': Chicks Don't Think Water Heaters Are Sexy

It’s down to six guys! That’s awesome for two reasons: one, it’s easier to remember who the heck all these people are, and two, it means we’re one episode closer to this show being over. The gang heads to Taiwan and the guys are being driven around in some bus. 2011 is the hundredth anniversary of Taiwan, which is actually somewhat interesting and I can’t believe it made it onto the show. Chris Harrison announces that there will be four dates – three one-on-ones and a group date. After this, two guys get booted and they have hometown dates. More »

ABC’s grand experiment in humiliating Ashley Hebert continues on another week. In case you missed the 1,200 other recaps, the episode opens with a quick recap of the Bentley situation. Ashley voiceovers about this week’s location, Hong Kong, but she segues into talking about Bentley and that godforsaken dot dot dot again. In case you didn’t catch the foreshadowing, Bentley is going to be in this episode. Bentley! Bentley. More »
