Jealousy Reaches New Heights on Las Vegas 'Bachelor' Dates

The emotions are getting amped up to the max on “The Bachelor”.  People’s feelings are now fully getting invested and if you thought you saw tears before, that was nothing!  Is it just me, or are the girls more jealous early on than in past seasons?



First, Chris Harrison comes into the ladies mansion and tells them to pack their bags because they are headed to Las Vegas!  Woo!  They have just one hour, but they manage to pack all of their stuff and get to the airport.  Brad is already in Vegas and waiting for his bachelorettes to arrive.  He welcomes them at the Aria Hotel & Casino at CityCenter.  It’s gorgeous there!  It’s kind of weird seeing Brad with everyone at once, and it’s not a rose ceremony.

Gia, Justin, Kasey, Jessie and other 'Bachelor' Stars at 'Teens for Jeans'

The "Teens for Jeans" event at Aeropostale in Times Square Sunday was a HUGE event!  There were some 70 past contestants from "The Bachelor", "Bachelorette", and "Bachelor Pad" all at the event that collected jeans for homeless teens.

Click the photo above to see more pictures of all of your favorite "Bachelor" stars at the "Teens for Jeans" event!


The 4th Annual campaign through DoSomething.org helps to collect millions of pairs of jeans for teenagers at homeless shelters all over the country and even in Canada.  The jeans collected at the event in Times Square will go to benefit homeless teens throughout New York City.


Honestly, there were practically too many of the past stars to name!  I could not believe my eyes when I saw them all walking in!  Those at the event included: Tara & John Presser, Stefanie Hogan, Graham Bunn, Justin Rego (a.k.a the wrestler), Michele and Sarah from Brad's first time on the show,  Gia Allemand, Jessie Sulidis, Erica Rose, Gwen Gioia, and the list goes on and on and on!  Keep on reading for some interviews with the stars I just mentioned.

'Bachelor' Reunion in Times Square Sunday for a Good Cause!

If you are in New York City, love all things "Bachelor" and have a few pairs of old jeans...come on down to Times Square on Sunday! 

Your favorite stars from "The Bachelor", "The Bachelorette", and "Bachelor Pad" will be in Times Square at the Aeropostale store from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, January 30th helping to collect pairs of gently used jeans for homeless teens.


So far the confirmed "Bachelor" stars include: Vienna Giardi; Brian Westendorf; Craig Robinson; David Good; Erica Rose; Gia Allemand; Graham Bunn; Gwen Gioia; Jesse Kovacs; Jessie Sulidis; Kasey Kahl; Marshana Ritchie; Nikki Kaapke; Peyton Wright; Reid Rosenthal, and more!


Bring you jeans and meet them!  It's all part of "Teens for Jeans" by DoSomething.org.  The 4th Annual campaign will collect its one millionth pair of jeans for homeless teens. The initiative raises awareness about youth homelessness by inspiring teens across the US and Canada to donate gently used jeans, which will go directly to local youth shelters in their communities. Last year’s campaign, spearheaded by Twilight’s Ashley Greene and Justin Long, collected over 620,000 jeans and sent 200,000 to the relief efforts in Haiti. More information is available at TeensforJeans.com.


It sounds like a great cause doesn't it?  I hope to see you there!

Full Transcript of Chris Harrison's Interview

Here is the full transcript of the conference call interview with the host of "The Bachelor", Chris Harrison!  You will find my questions in PURPLE.


Question:            One silly one and one serious one.  I'll ask you the serious one first.   Can you talk a little bit about what it is with the women and why they think they fall in love with the Bachelors so quickly?  It seems to me that there's something about the show itself that lends them to that? 


Chris Harrison:            Yes, you know, I think that you definitely – you have to give that credit to Mike Fleiss, the creator of the show and Martin Hilton, the executive producer now for creating – what they’ve created -- and that is, this obviously is this environment and its format that works.  I mean, every year, season in and season out, it just works.  And I think the fact that it's not a game show.  There is nothing at the end of this.  There's no catch to our show. 


            And it's really rare that you can have a show that sustains this long and has done this well, where there's really no catch at the end.  You have this guy or this girl choosing somebody else and if it works, great, if it doesn't, so be it -- that's it.  And when you break it down our show is just about that.  It's just about a relationship.  And so, I think, you know, the atmosphere they’ve created and the fact that there is no catch the end, it's just about them trying to live their life is very interesting and compelling.

New Interview with Chris Harrison the Host of 'The Bachelor'

This week, instead of one of the eliminated bachelorettes, (because let's face it...who were they and why were they so boring) Chris Harrison, the host of "The Bachelor" took some time out to talk about how this season is going so far.

Chris harrison 
He answered a lot of questions about the rumors that are swirling around out there right now so let's get right to what he had to say.


About the rumor that Brad recently broke up with season 11 contestant Bettina to be on "The Bachelor" again:  Chris said that it is simply "not true" and that if it was true, she would have been invited on for the second episode to confront Brad.  He said that they pretty much know every detail of his life and the lives of their contestants, so they would have for sure used that as some "shocking" material.  But, it wasn't true so they did not.

Ashley vs. Ashley, Plus a Deleted Scene!

It's Ashley versus Ashley next week on "The Bachelor"!  The ladies find themselves on the awful, stomach-churning two-on-one date.  Which Ashley do you think Brad should ask to stay?  Ashley S. or Ashley H.?  After this last episode, I'm rooting for Ashley S!  Here's the full press release from ABC on next week's show:

"No sooner do the women arrive at their luxury suite at the Aria Resort and Casino than Brad whisks Shawntel away on an unbelievable shopping spree, where everything her heart desires is hers. When she returns to the suite, the rest of the women are green with envy. The date continues with a romantic rooftop dinner, but how will the night end, as Shawntel reveals the unsavory details of her profession...? Will it be fireworks or a deathly thud?

Chantal and Brad's Connection Grows, Michelle Gets Crazier on 'The Bachelor'

This episode really opened my eyes up to the connection that Brad has with Chantal O.  They really seem to have a deep connection that goes beyond the physical.  Sometimes things just instantly “click” and I think that may be the case with these two!



I loved how this week began with Michelle waking up with a black eye.  She basically gave it to herself in the middle of the night by accident while she was sleeping, apparently.  She blabbing on and on about it and sweet little Ashley S. says in her interview “I wish I gave her the black eye!”  Wow!  Maybe I’ve underestimated her!

Is Michelle Really Afraid, and Chantal Gets Jealous!

Things are really starting to heat up and tensions are rising on "The Bachelor"! Tonight, things get to be a little too much for Chantal O.

She says she expected the kissing, dates and alone moments, but doesn't like to see another girl get special treatment at the cocktail party.  I have to admit, I think the girl has a point!


It's sweet that Brad did that little picnic for Emily, but I guess we'll have to see what made him decide to do that later tonight.
