Why This Bachelorette Season Was Great

A fabulous summary of why this Bachelorette season was so spectacular came from Sharleen Joynt who was one of my favorite Bachelor franchise "characters"[1]. Sharleen was on (that loser) Juan Pablo’s season and was awesome because she was a professional opera singer, incredibly intelligent, OMG drop dead gorgeous and excused herself from the show when she...

Hannah B. Chooses to . . . Date (?)

The Monster Gets Mashed

Wow, that Wimbledon Final was amazing. Last 30 minutes of The Bachelorette: "Hold my beer.” With the frantic hopes of frustrated Bachelor Nation fanatics resting in her rose-holding hands, Hannah B. - who was under tremendous pressure for most of the match date - came up big in the clutch, and with a steely-eyed resolve,...
