The biggest thing holding you back - and how to change it

Hello. It’s me. Sorry, but I couldn’t resist not starting with that intro. It’s been a while since I’ve offered my voice to the Wise Guise. Did you miss me? I’m sure you did. “I missed you like I miss a rock in my shoe,” as my grandmother once said. Read more

Cubs, Cardinals, and Destiny

Sometimes, you reach a point in time where fate steps in and you just have to recognize destiny's dominion when it arrives. And that's why, despite eliminating my favorite team from the playoffs, I now have to root for the Chicago Cubs. I'm sure that once they win the Read more

My Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far and My Most Anticipated Ahead

So back in April I did a post previewing the upcoming films coming out in 2015 and I think it’s about time I update the 12 people who read that post. I know you all have been anxiously refreshing the site looking for a new post from me. What Read more

The Day Hulkamania Died

Professional wresting fans were told by Hulk Hogan for years “Hulkamania would never die.” No, despite any new nemesis who would come his way and claim he was the one to end Hogan’s powerful marketing brand, the Hulkster would end up with his hand raised, and the appeal of Read more

Celebrating America With Movies: Fourth of July Viewing Alternatives

I first want to state that I fully believe that America, and this great holiday in particular, are meant to be celebrated outdoors. Not necessarily in those ridiculous looking American flag shorts you bought online a few years ago to "stand out" and then dug through your closet to find Read more

Examining Our Love-Hate Relationship with Taylor Swift

Two years ago, I revealed to the world I had a sad, secret love affair with Taylor Swift and her music. It was a difficult moment for me, as I had publicly bad-mouthed the pop star for years. “I mean, can she really sing?” I would question. “And she Read more

Josh and Andi

The Bachelorette finale is in the books. The journey is over. Andi found true love and happiness, and Nick’s hand-drawn storybook found the nearest dumpster in the Dominican Republic.

But before we move on, I need to take care of two things. Read more

The Bachelorette: Men Tell All Recap & Final Rose Preview

Ashley and JP

Well, my experiment failed. I thought maybe if I stopped writing about this season that it would just go away. I got tired of Andi and her boy(z II men). I was tired of watching these men swaddled in scarves perusing some of this world’s greatest cities. But, I never stopped watching the episodes. Then the Bachelor(ette) did what it does best – it suckered me back in once we got down to the final four. Read more

And then there were 16…

(16 men(?) with full, thick heads of hair – so long, the only guy showing any signs of hair loss)

Another week in the books, and another episode that felt like a week of my life. I couldn’t believe my eyes every time I looked at the time on my DVR while fast-forwarding through commercials. How were there still 40 minutes left after the group date?

But hey, what’s worse than one episode of The Bachelorette a week?… That’s right, TWO episodes, and that’s what we have on our hands next week. So if you are looking for a chance to get out, now is the time. If you want to wipe your hands clean of this season and be done with it, do it now. Because next week it looks like we’ll be knee-deep in four hours of Bachelorette-ness, and all of your favorite buzzwords and catchphrases are back:

The Bachelorette: Meet the Fellas

Posted on by Jeremy Wilson in Entertainment, Featured, Misc. TV, Television, TV Reviews, Weekly Posts | 1 Comment

bachelorette cast

Opening night has come and gone. 25 desperate men made the nerve-racking walk from the limo to greet their hopeful bride-to-be, Andi, and five of those men were sent packing… some more emotional than others, (cough) Josh B (cough).

As far as opening nights go, this one was pretty tame, and tame is a nice way of saying boring. Let’s give it a 6/10 – three points for the awkward limo entrances, and three points for the season previews we saw after the show. After all, the season previews are the most important aspect of the first episode.

The Bachelorette 2014: Bio Breakdown

Andi 2

The sun is back out, summer vacations are just around the corner, and there are a few less pastel v-necks on the shelves — that can only mean only thing…

Ladies and (begrudging) gentleman, its time for The Bachelorette!

That’s right, if you’re thinking that The Bachelor just ended, and how could it already be time for The Bachelorette, then we agree. But hey, there’s nothing we can do about it. We just need to clear our Monday nights and lie to our friends about what we’re doing. Easy breezy.

Andi, the drug busting, crime fighting, Juan Pablo hating District Attorney from Atlanta is primed and ready for her turn to find love, and this time she’s in charge (I picture her saying that in a cheesy promo followed by crossing her arms and turning to the side). I can hardly wait for the staged court room work scenes that they’ll wheel out for the premier.

So who are the lucky 25 fellas that get a shot at wooing the world’s worst dancer?

I’ll break down some of the bios that jumped out at me, highlighting some quick hitters about each walking piece of hair product.
