We’re Halfway There

Well, we are at the halfway point, and we are finally starting to get some clarity about Clayton’s journey to find love – and by clarity, I mean that we name 3-4 other people besides Clayton and Jessie Palmer. By the way, is it Clay-ton, Clay-tin, or Clay.IN? I find the latter really annoying. Serene... Continue Reading →

Did He Find The One?

After three desultory episodes, maybe this slow-moving season is finally hitting its stride. Once again, Cray Cray Shanaenae dominated the screen-time[1] , but this episode moved very quickly, and it’s possible we saw The One. I’ve broken this installment into four parts. Part 1.

The primary reason for my boredom is Bachelor fatigue. After going from Clare to Tayshia to Katie to Paradise to Michelle and now to... Continue Reading →

Say It Ain’t So, Baller Joe!

I admit it. I didn’t see it coming. I know I had been promoting Nayte as one of the favorites to win it all season. Still, during the Fantasy Suites episodes, I convinced myself that the “is he really ready for an engagement?” flags that Michelle was concerned about were screaming bright red. Therefore, I...

Breaking Up Isn’t Hard to Do

[cue Led Zeppelin Good Times Bad Times and Communication Breakdown] By now, you are probably aware that our most recent Bachelorette, Katie, has broken things off with her fiancé Blake. Since breakups are the norm rather than the exception, the only surprising thing is how quickly it came – less than three months after The... Continue Reading →
