'The Bachelor' episode 8: 'What the [bleep] just happened?'

Oh snap, rose lovers! Did you see that coming? Spoiler alert if you have not yet watched tonight’s episode, but if you’re like me, you were not expecting the “lady” who uttered the words in the headline above to be sent home this week. In other news, how about Courtney trying out the image rehab, what with the “I feel disappointed in myself for treating the girls the way I did” confession? I still think she’s gonna get some seriously disapproving looks from the all-female audience if she shows up at the Women Tell All. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Kristen’s full Bachelor hometown dates recap is now live), and in the meantime, post your thoughts on tonight’s episode below. Are you happy with the final three? Do you like Courtney any better now that you’ve met her family? Why must Ben answer every statement with “Really?”

Also, if you have burning questions about this season of The Bachelor for host and esteemed EW.com blogger Chris Harrison, post them below — we’ll be publishing some of those questions and answers in an upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. Ready, set, go!

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelor' episode 7


I would like to start out by apologizing to the country of Belize for the insane amount of “Belize” puns that were used and abused in this week’s episode. You better Belize things are getting serious on this show right now. (Sorry, just had to slip one more in.) I want to answer a couple of burning questions that many of our viewers had over the last couple weeks. First of all, the baseball game in Puerto Rico ended in a tie at the end of regulation. There might have been a mistake in showing an incorrect scoreboard as we went in to extra innings, but I was there and can attest that the game was tied and legitimately went into extra innings. The game was also sanctioned by and followed all the rules of Major League Baseball. The next topic I need to cover is Casey’s shoes. As many of you noticed, she walked up to Ben’s room and then out of the hotel without her shoes on. Her shoes and luggage were mailed to her and she should be receiving those items in six to ten business days. With those great mysteries cleared up, let’s move on to this week’s episode.  READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor' episode 7: 'Oh my gosh, it's so good when it hits your lips!'

You’ve gotta love an Old School reference, even when it comes from the mouth of a meanie model, right rose lovers? And with tonight’s episode in Belize — SPOILER ALERT if you’ve not yet watched — we’re down to a quartet of “ladies” who will show Ben off to their sure-to-be-delighted families. Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click over to read Kristen’s Bachelor episode 7 recap and Chris Harrison’s exclusive behind-the-scenes Bachelor blog), but if you’ve seen tonight’s episode, let me know what you think: Are you pleased with your Final Four? Were you surprised that Nicki, Kacie B. and Rachel tried to stage a Courtney intervention? And would you rather swim with sharks in chum-filled waters or drop from a helicopter into a bottomless oceanic abyss? Post your thoughts now!

'Bachelorette' 'stars' Ali Fedotowsky, Emily Maynard, and Ashley Hebert, together at last -- POLL

I wasn’t exactly dying to know why Bachelorettes Ali, Emily, and Ashley were hanging out together — and then I died a little inside when I accidentally learned they’d just enjoyed a “day of beauty and pampering.” I need to stop reading the words on the pages. It’s always a mistake.

Big poll coming up. Huge. “I have to go shopping now….” Vote below. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor': Courtney the meanie model gets Auto Tuned -- VIDEO

If you’re like me, you’ve been watching The Bachelor every week and wondering to yourself, “When will somebody take all of Courtney the model’s bitchy soundbites and turn them into an Auto-Tuned ditty?” Well, the wait is over, rose lovers! I wish I could give the first impression rose to whatever musically-inclined member of the Bachelor Nation crafted this video, which sets some of Courtney’s best bon mots — e.g. “Should I take my robe off?” and “Let’s go bikini-less!” — to a catchy backbeat (“Winning! Winning!”) and ties it all together with an earworm hook featuring Courtney cooing, “I got the roooooose!” I wonder if ABC would consider using this in their next promo? I think ratings would spike. Take a look (and listen) to the brilliantly bitchy Bachelor video after the jump. READ FULL STORY

Ben on 'The Bachelor' is Alfalfa from 'Little Rascals'

So said EW.com reader “jr” on today’s episode recap. Good work, gumshoe!

Do you think the original Alfalfa (Carl Switzer) would be caught dead clunking out a shaky rendition of David Gray’s “This Year’s Love” on the piano? Is this a rhetorical question?

Chris Harrison blogs 'The Bachelor,' episode 6


It’s funny that when I watch these episodes now I do so with a completely different perspective than I used to. I now watch the show with the thought of how I will write this blog each week. After watching this week’s episode, all I could think is, How can I possibly fit one hundred pounds of goodness into a ten-pound sack? This week landed us in the exotic Central American town of Panama City, Panama. I don’t think Courtney had been to Panama in recent weeks so we were excited to take her somewhere new.

You might have noticed Ben helped fill my position at the beginning of the show, welcoming the women and setting up the first date. Ben has secretly been dreaming of taking my job for many years, and this was his first move. The truth is I was back home shooting my game show You Deserve It and came into Panama a couple of days late. Gotta give Ben props though, as he filled in quite well. I was hoping he would get a haircut before trying to fill the host position, but that was just a dream.  READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor' episode 6: 'Maybe I should be in therapy or something'

Wow, those just might be the eight truest words ever spoken on The Bachelor, huh rose lovers? If you’ve seen tonight’s episode — and SPOILER ALERT if you haven’t — you know they came from the very blond, very confused Casey S., who finally managed to do something interesting tonight. Not as interesting as going topless in front of a bunch of tribesmen (no, that was Courtney’s job), but suffice it to say Casey’s first notable episode was also her last. What did you think of tonight’s trip to Panama City? I’ve got to say, the “ladies” really do seem to be letting the meanie model take the lead with Ben — though Jamie did give it her all tonight, with what might just be the worst lap dance in recorded history. (To quote Chris Harrison from his episode 6 blog: “Bless her heart.”) Maybe next week Ben will finally realize that Courtney isn’t the dream girl he thinks she is… but what fun would that be? Stay tuned for my full TV recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click for Kristen’s full Bachelor episode 6 recap and Chris Harrison’s exclusive Bachelor blog), but in the meantime, post your thoughts on tonight’s “journey” below!

Tonight's lineup features 'The Voice,' 'The Bachelor,' 'Smash,' and more: What will you be watching?

This is the kind of day where having multiple TVs (and multiple DVRs, for that matter) would really pay off: Monday night’s lineup includes no less than six can’t-miss shows that are competing with one another in their time slots. But on the off chance you inexplicably don’t have a television for every room in your house, then how to choose, PopWatchers?

The Voice is riding high off its post-Super Bowl second-season premiere, which offered Mickey Mouse Club reunions, sparring judges, and contestants you can’t help but already root for (go Tony, Juliette, and Chris!). Seems The Voice might already have an advantage — the series is fresh on everyone’s minds as it heads into the 8 p.m. time slot tonight. Only problem is it will face off against new episodes of fan and ratings winners The Bachelor and How I Met Your Mother. Even more conflicting, The Voice and The Bachelor will have to compete with a new Alcatraz, which airs their second hour of programming.

'Bachelor': The skinny-dipping isn't the only thing upsetting me

Last night’s episode of The Bachelor was controversial because Courtney broke ranks and sought Ben out on another girl’s date night to make good on her earlier proposal that they go skinny-dipping. When I asked Ben about that decision before the season began, having just seen it teased in a promo, he said he compartmentalized his relationships with the women and didn’t compare them. “So if more women wanted to go skinny-dipping with me, they should have asked… and I would have gone,” he laughed. “Those are things you do when you’re trying to get to know someone and you get in a relationship.”

I laughed, too, because I didn’t know how foolish Courtney would make the other women — who seem to show each other more respect than she does — look. Some fans are coming down on Ben for agreeing to go skinny-dipping with Courtney when that many women were left. If it had happened on a sanctioned date, I wouldn’t have had a problem with it. (I mean, other than the fact that Courtney appears to be manipulating him so she can keep saying “Winning!”) I’m just as disappointed in ABC for running all those promos that made it look like the women either saw it happening or found out about it right away. A rep for the network says neither it nor the ladies can comment on when the other women catch wind of it. We’ll just have to tune in. (At the very least, it will certainly make the Women Tell All interesting now that they’ve definitely seen it.)  READ FULL STORY
