PopWatch Confessional: I took Chris Harrison's dating site At First Sight for a test drive

I was bouncing around on ye olde Interwebs today when I noticed a tweet from Bachelor Pad enemy No. 1 Chris Bukowski informing the showmance-franchise’s beloved (and super-dreamy) host Chris Harrison that he’s joining Harrison’s new dating app At First Sight. My first thought: Why can’t the (semi-)newly single Harrison himself be the one setting up a profile?* My second thought: I gotta see this thing in action!

Keep reading as I take At First Sight for a spin — and send a gentle nudge to a few other celebs I’d like to join me in my “journey” to love online.

'The Bachelor's Funniest Moments': Bloopers, bugs, booze, and boobs

Alright, Bachelor fans, I’m turning the camera on us, because it’s time we have a confessional of our own. Let’s be real. We haven’t tuned into this show for the past 25 seasons solely because we like to watch people fall in love, because nine times out of ten, that love doesn’t last longer than a few months (unless you’re a poet/firefighter/triathlete who finds your baby-talking perfect match). So why do we tune in? For those moments that make us embarrassed to be a member of the human race purely because we have to associate ourselves with some of the individuals on the show, that’s why.

Long live 'Bachelor Pad'! (An open letter to ABC)

BACHELOR-PAD

Dear Sir or Madam,

Why do you hate me? Nay, why do you hate the more than 4 million fans who willingly spent two full hours of their lives (or an hour and 15 minutes if you FF through commercials) every Monday night last summer watching the reality show equivalent of herpes searing indictment of our fame-obsessed culture known as Bachelor Pad? You must loathe our very existence; I can think of no other reason that you would choose not to put the Pad on your schedule this summer. READ FULL STORY

Finally! The phone number bar-going Bachelor fans everywhere have been waiting for…

The clever folks behind everyone’s favorite rose parade have kicked off “The Bachelor Heartbreak Line” — a (highly entertaining) phone service that aims to let down your prospects gently.

Upon calling 212-HEARTBR (or, if you’re writing on a napkin, 212-432-7827), rejects callers are welcomed by the silky voice of Bachelor host Chris Harrison, who gives the “unfortunate news.” “Whoever gave you this number is trying to send you a message — and it’s not a good one: They don’t like you.

Chris Harrison blogs the 'Bachelor Pad' season finale

bachelor-pad-chris-harrison

There is so much we need to discuss that took place on the finale of Bachelor Pad 3 but let’s be honest the only thing that anybody on the planet will be discussing is Nick deciding to keep the money all for himself leaving Rachel heartbroken and just plain broke. I can’t wait to hear from all of you and get your feelings on this situation. While I don’t necessarily want to just throw out my own opinion I do have a unique perspective of this situation and there are some things I think you should know that might change your perspective.

But first I want to say that no matter what you think of Nick’s decision, you have to feel bad for Rachel. Whether she was used by Michael or not, I think we could all see she was falling in love with a guy that was just never going to have those same feelings for her. She was left heartbroken. She did a very good job of expressing her feelings for Michael and did the best she could to try and get some sort of answer. But let’s face it, we’ve all been in that situation, and there is never an explanation that will make anybody feel better about it.

The only thing that made any of that okay was the fact that Rachel knew she would at least walk away from this $125,000 richer. Unfortunately for Rachel, Nick had other plans for that money — which is to say, he really wanted it for himself. Let’s put Rachel’s feelings aside and the fact that Nick didn’t handle the situation well after he won the money, and let’s lay out a few facts:  READ FULL STORY

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 7

bachelor-pad-chris-harrison

The final episode in the house was the biggest one yet. Next week’s episode will be the finale which takes place in front of a live studio audience and I’ll talk a little bit about that later.

This week was different as we held two competitions. The first competition was a huge project. We blacked out the windows in the back of the house so the contestants couldn’t see what was going on but due to all the noise they knew something big was happening back there. Our crews worked non-stop day and night to quickly build that contraption over the pool.

This challenge was completely based on who knew the most Bachelor and Bachelor Pad related trivia. Last week we saw Chris and Sarah dominate the Spelling Bee and this week they did it again. In all fairness, it was Sarah that dominated this competition by herself. All Chris had to do was sit there and enjoy the view as each competitor fell into the pool one by one. This challenge wasn’t even close, and Sarah could’ve gone on answering questions all day. She got several questions that I didn’t even know the answers to.

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor Pad' episode 6

bachelor-pad-chris-harrison

It was really interesting to read the reactions to last week’s elimination. Many of you respected what Erica did, and many of you were in Michael’s camp. One of the things I love about this show is the different emotions and opinions it brings out in our fans. One thing is for sure, and that is Rachel is not happy that Michael is gone, especially now as the contestants are partnered up all the way to the very end. The good news for Rachel is that her new partner Nick (I had no idea he was on this season, but apparently he has been living in the house for weeks) is a good business partner that now wants to do the same thing she does: Survive. And in an exciting twist, we not only got to see Nick, but he said these three inspirational words: “Let’s do this.” READ FULL STORY
