They should just cancel this season of The Bachelorette

This season of The Bachelorette is plagued with problems, and not all of their woes are from the plague.

Clair Crawley’s season started off as any other season does. However, shortly after they started filming, coronavirus forced them to shut down production. While they were on hiatus, Matt James, one of the suitors, was chosen as next season’s Bachelor.

As he is preparing to find love, Crawley found love with one of the contestants while they were on a production break. When they started filming again at a resort in Palm Springs, she told the producers she wants out. She got her wish, and now Tayshia Adams is this season’s Bachelorette.

Now that you are caught up in the madness, Us Weekly revealed their latest setback. Host Chris Harrison went to Texas to drop his son off at college, and when he came back, ABC schooled him. As in, he is suspended for two weeks to quarantine. Instead, of canceling this season, which they should do, they are bringing JoJo Fletcher in to replace him while he is on a mandatory lockdown.

Got it? I really don’t get why they are just not scrapping this season. Although, it might be their best one yet because it is so messed up. Are you going to watch?

I wonder what will happen next? Oh wait, it is 2020, let’s not ask because we will find out. Seriously, even UnReal could not have written a storyline as wild as this.


Over 6,500 women have applied to be Matt James Bachelorette

Robert Mills, Senior Vice President, Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming, ABC Entertainment, was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, today; and he was dishing about what we can expect from the upcoming seasons of The Bachelorette and The Bachelor.

They are hoping to resume filming of Claire Crowley’s season of The Bachelorette next month. Production was halted because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Due to COVID-19, there are going to be a lot of changes for the second part of her season. Everyone, who is selected, is going to have to get tested a week before filming begins and quarantined. They will not be shooting at the mansion. Instead, they will be doing it at a resort. Since everyone will have to be negative for the virus, they will be able to go on dates at that location and, more importantly, KISS. You can’t have a dating show without kissing!

We don’t know if Matt James, the first Black Bachelor, will rejoin the season already in progress. What we do know is that Crowley knew about his new status a day before we all found out.

When it comes to James, over 6,500 women are hoping to be part of his season. As of now, they are hoping to start filming in September at the mansion. If things are still not normal by then (they won’t be), then they will probably go to a resort too.

Personally, I like the idea of them at a resort instead of at a mansion. ABC prefers the latter because it is a lot cheaper.

What do you think of it being at resorts? Maybe one season they can do at a summer camp and another one on a cruise ship. Give us some variety!


The first Black Bachelor is coming in 2021
June 12th, 2020 under The Bachelor. [ Comments: 1 ]

After years of people complaining that The Bachelor is not diverse enough, today, ABC announced that they will have their first Black Bachelor in 2021. Matt James, who is supposed to be on the upcoming edition of The Bachelorette, is the next suitor in the franchise.

The Bachelorette’s filming was put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. After they stopped filming, James joined cameo, and the Bachelorette Clare Crowley called him out on it. Even though he said he was donating the money to charity. Since then, people have been wondering if he would still be part of her season when production finally resumes. Something, we do not know.

What we also know about James is that he is best friends with Tyler Cameron, who appeared on Hannah Brown’s season of The Bachelorette. The two men are living together during the lockdown. This makes us suspect that he will probably help out his friend pick his eventual bride.

Now that we got that out of the way let’s find out why ABC picked him to be their 25th Bachelor. Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment: “Matt has been on our radar since February, when producers first approached him to join Bachelor Nation, as part of Clare’s season. When filming couldn’t move forward as planned, we were given the benefit of time to get to know Matt and all agreed he would make a perfect Bachelor. We know we have a responsibility to make sure the love stories we’re seeing onscreen are representative of the world we live in, and we are proudly in service to our audience. This is just the beginning, and we will continue to take action with regard to diversity issues on this franchise. We feel so privileged to have Matt as our first Black Bachelor and we cannot wait to embark on this journey with him.”

Having a Black Bachelor is one thing, but will there also be plenty of women, who are people of color, for him to choose to date? Something only about half of the men were during Rachel Lindsay’s season. She was the only other Black person to lead of season of the show. If you are going to do it, do it right.

What do you think of him as The Bachelor?


Is Chris Harrison out of the upcoming season of The Bachelorette?

Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette is on a pause because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, and according to Chris Harrison not all of the men might be coming back when production resumes. Therefore, they are looking for replacements.

Crawley has some advice for her suitors, “If you are doing interviews and creating Cameo accounts before you are even on my season… you are in it for the wrong reasons… #dontwasteyourtime”

When Robert Mills, Senior Vice President, Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming, ABC Entertainment, saw that he tweeted, “BREAKING: Chris Harrison removed from upcoming season of #TheBachelorette”

What? Harrison has been hosting the franchise since day one, it won’t be the same without him. It would be like Survivor without Jeff Probst, American Idol without Ryan Seacrest, RuPaul’s Drag Race without RuPaul, or So You Think You Can Dance without Nigel Lythgoe. You don’t want to watch it without some of them.

Fear not! After a few hours Harrison cleared things up. “Not sure people are getting the joke here. Thank you for the questions I’ll be getting this week. Face with tears of joy. @Millsy11374”

Mills then confirmed Harrison is still part of the show with, “I am stunned people took this seriously. This was a JOKE. Chris hosts for the right reasons but being a celebrity he does interviews and Cameo. He’s not going anywhere. We have him chained to the mansion!!!”

Just like Donald Trump, you never know when Mills is being sarcastic over Twitter.

Would you have been upset if Harrison was not given a rose?


Chris Harrison says they are casting for Clare Crawley’s Bachelorette

The latest season of The Bachelorette halted production because of Coronavirus. Chris Harrison spoke with girlfriend Entertainment Tonight’s Lauren Zima and gave her an update on the status of the Bachelor franchise shows.

Harrison does not know when Claire Crawley’s season will go back into production, but they will complete it. She is the star, so she will be back. However, he does not know if all of the men will be back. Because of that, they are casting for both this season of Bachelorette and the next season of The Bachelor. They do not have a Bachelor in mind just yet.

What about Bachelor of Paradise which airs and films between the two shows? As of now, this season’s future is unsure. It is all up to when they are done filming The Bachelorette.

The Bachelor: Summer Games will not happen this year because they cannot get contestants to fly in from all over the world.

Back to the Bachelorette, when it starts up again, they will address why everyone went home for X amount of time. When will we see this season? Who knows? But we will see it.
