What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith

The Bachelorette 2013: It’s Back!

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Entertainment, Featured, Reality Check, Television | 3 Comments

The only thing more embarrassing than getting sent home during the first rose ceremony of The Bachelorette is getting sent home before the final rose ceremony of The Bachelorette.  So, when fantasy suite guy was kindly dismissed before the rose ceremony even began, it was simultaneously awesome and pathetic.  (As is every single episode of the world’s most anticlimactic show.)

Thoughts So Far on Survivor: Fans vs. Favorites 2

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Entertainment, Featured, Reality Check, Television | Leave a comment


I’ve received a lot of e-mails, Facebook posts, and comments from friends eagerly anticipating Wise Guise thoughts on this season of “Survivor.” It seems writing about my love of Survivor in the face of friends’ jokes about it being around for hundreds of seasons has finally paid off. Fear not, fellow Survivor fans. I’ve been keeping up with this season every week and, even though we didn’t post about it like past seasons, we are playing a Wise Guise Survivor Fantasy Game this season as well. We modified the rules slightly, we added more teams, and things are as exciting as ever before! Read more

Like most of America, I fast forwarded through much of The Bachelor finale, only to be disappointed with the fact that Sean picked Catherine, someone I barely even knew was on the show.

Poor Lindsay: She walked through a bunch of woods and rocks only to get dumped on national television despite the fact that she was sure she was about to get engaged.  I’ve been dumped in a lot of different ways, but that, folks, is simply awful.

But, because she apparently is a ROCK STAR, she barely cried, she walked away, and she didn’t say anything stupid or too pathetic until she was in the car.  That almost never happens.

 Then Sean picked Catherine and we all yawned. 

Catherine and Sean get weird. (From WetPaint)

The Bachelor Recap: All The Things We’ve Learned

Posted on by Liz Riggs in Featured, Reality Check, Television | 1 Comment

This week’s episode of The Bachelor was spectacularly awful.  To be honest, I could barely stand to watch the majority of it, as nobody says or does anything interesting, and I don’t find Sean to be ridiculously attractive (as it seems the rest of the country does).  Furthermore, the gratuitous shots of him in tank tops staring into the sun are starting to get a bit redundant.

Highlights of this episode? THE PREVIEWS.  Things we can learn from this episode?

Last night’s Bachelor was full of all kinds of ups and downs, and left me with more questions than answers. The hometown week took Sean and his ladies to four different destinations, where things were awkward and boring and blahblahblabhlablhab. All you need to know is that:

1. Ash Lee speaks almost entirely in metaphors, and we’re all pretty sure we could write her young adult novel of her life, describing her fear of abandonment in excruciating detail and also mentioning, again, that she was married when she was seventeen.

2. Catherine’s view of marriage is sort of like going to a new restaurant. When her sisters ask her if she wants to marry Sean, she tells them: “If he proposed, I’d be like, yeah, let’s try this!” And also, like, does the chicken come with mashed potatoes? And do you guys have any gluten free beer? Side note and quick piece of advice to CatCat: if Sean was that close to sending you home (and is pretty sure he made a horrible mistake by not sending you home) do you really want to “try out” marrying him???

TERRIFYINGTIERRA is GONE! Her parents told her not to let anyone take her sparkle, and she went ahead and took it herself!  SweatySean sent her packing, even though he was crazy about her—because that makes perfect sense!  This week we’ll do the top 5 Tierra moments from this week after reminding you about the other forgettable things that happened.

WhiteLesley got sent home, after it became painfully obvious that she and Sean were involved in some sort of bro-ship, even though she said she was falling in love with him.

Catherine cried when WhiteLesley got sent home, which was weird, because we thought she liked Sean.

Sean still loves LiabilityLindsay, which nobody in the whole world understands. Read more
