Bachelor Castoff Jillian Crowned Bachelorette

Los Angeles (E! Online) – Turns out, it's not better to have loved
and lost—or rather, been dumped on national television—than to have
never been chosen at all.
The Bachelor's third-place finisher, and first-place dignity keeper, Jillian Harris,
has been selected to star as the newest Bachelorette when the spinoff
of the now controversy-mired reality show kicks off its fifth season
this summer.
Bachelor host Chris Harrison announced during last night's season postmortem,
"After the Final Rose: Part 2," that the 29-year-old Canadian interior designer
would be the latest lady to look for televised love.
"I'm a very lucky person," Harris said, presumably referring to her new
gig and not her having been spared humiliation at the hands of
flip-flopping Bachelor Jason Mesnick.

"I've been a huge fan of the show since day one, and I've always looked at
The Bachelorette as, 'Oh my god, they're so lucky, how did they get
there?' And now I'm sitting here—it's very surreal."
Still, give the girl credit for learning from her predecessors' mistakes.
"I guess the only thing I fear is that I hope I make the right choice
the first time. The only other fear that I have is that I do not need
my dad to see any more hot tub scenes…I have not lived that one [with
Jason] down."
She's also realistic but hopeful about her chances for a love that's more
Trista and Ryan than, say, Jason and Melissa.
"Although I know there are no guarantees, it is a great, great
opportunity for me to meet 25 guys that are a good match for me, and I
fell in love once before and know that this is a great venue for me to
fall in love again.
"It's one of those things that, you have to be realistic, it's a very
unorthodox way to find love. But we are living in a world where people
do things differently and there's Internet dating and there's blind
dating, but there's something really magical about ABC finding girls
like us that were great for Jason and allowing us to get to know each
other so quickly."
Harris' Bachelorette will kick off with a two-hour premiere special on
May 18 in one of the network's most prime prime-time pieces of real
estate: The show airs immediately after the final performance show of Dancing With the Stars.

The Bachelorette Gets Naughty!





(Courtesy of ABC)

Will Jillian Harris morph into a female version of Jason Mesnick when The Bachelorette returns this spring? An insider tells OK! that Jillian, who finished third on The Bachelor — just missing a chance to be part of single dad Jason’s bizarre love triangle — is “getting her edge on” before filming starts later this month.

“Everyone who saw Jillian on The Bachelor has the idea that she is a goody-two-shoes,” the source says. “On the show they will reveal that she’s capable of creating controversy. The producers would love it if The Bachelorette ends just as dramatically as The Bachelor.”

Jillian, 29, an interior designer from Canada, was a fan favorite on the hit ABC show and will hand out her first rose on May 17. For The Bachelorette, she’ll be pitting the guys against each other. “You’ll see her really manipulating them in a way previous Bachelorettes haven’t,” the insider says.

Oh puke. I like Jillian, but I hate the bachelor shows. I hate manipulation.
If it is a hateful thing to do to women, it's hateful to do to the men.

If this show tries to edit Jillian to look like a manipulating, jerky woman ...I WILL stop watching it.

I just think the article is all hype to get the viewers excited for another drama filled season.

Reality Steve has something to say... and here we go again!
http://www.realitysteve.com/
“The Bachelor/ette”

-Quite a few things to cover this week regarding everyone’s favorite show here. Let me first start of with the “Bachelorette”, which begins filming today. How do I know this? There are a couple guys from Dallas on the show this season who left for L.A. two days ago. From what I hear, the meet-and-greets out of the limo will be occurring tonight. Then the fun begins. Weeeeeeee!!!!!! So how is our little Jillian going to be as the Bachelorette? Well, according to OK! Magazine, nothing like she was on the “Bachelor”. Read this story:

The Bachelorette Gets Naughty!

Now, it’s hard to put too much stock into this report for the sole reason they only quote an “insider”, however, would it be really that far-fetched if we saw this after everything that went down last season? I don’t think so. Look, anything is believable at this point and if you immediately dismiss this report, you’re being naïve. Mike Fleiss and his production company have the same exact objective as anybody who puts on a TV show, which is to get people to watch. As we saw last season, they will stoop to whatever level they have to for eyeballs to watch their show. So at this point, nothing would surprise me regarding Jillians season. Nothing.

-Now as for the information I’d heard about a month ago, here’s the rumor that is going around. In past seasons this hasn’t been the case, but because of the backlash this show received after the Jason fiasco, I’ve heard that guys who were set to be cast on the show this season started pulling out at the last minute and were basically offered money to come back on and “guaranteed” spots in the final four, and/or, final two. I put “guarantee” in quotes because there’s no guarantee whatsoever that can ever happen in this show unless its written into their contract, which doesn’t happen. However, I’ve had multiple people report to me that two guys in particular were offered $50k each to be in the final two this season, with the one not getting picked getting a handshake offer to be the next “Bachelor”, yet both of them turned it down. Not bad coin, huh? Kinda funny that now when I watch the show, when we get down to the final two, I’ll be asking myself, “Gee, I wonder how much those guys were offered? Maybe they should change the shows name to “For Love or Money”. Oh wait, NBC already ran that show. Hell, I’d even consider selling my soul to ABC for that amount of cake. 70k for six weeks of work of pretending to be interested in some Canadian chick? Works for me. Where do I sign?

-Now of course there will be people that question the validity of this, but ask yourself this question. In the history of this show, have you ever heard publicly about anything regarding money given out to these contestants? No. Sure, it’s talked about on message boards, but ABC has never released a statement that said, “Today, ABC and Jason Mesnick agreed on a six-figure deal for him to become the next ‘Bachelor’.” They just announce who our next “Bachelor” is and tell us when the season will start. But lets not play dumb here. The “Bachelor” and the “Bachelorette” get paid, and well. So when you’re getting paid that kind of money, let’s face it, you’re probably going to do what you’re told. Nobody is going to quit their job for six weeks and be the focal point of a network show if they’re not making any money off it. It’s ridiculous to think otherwise. As for the contestants, the contract stipulates you receive compensation once you reach the final four, whatever that may be. Probably varies from season to season. If they’re handing out six figures for you to show up on “DWTS”, they’re obviously paying you to be the “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette”. Lets not kid ourselves.

-Once again, there are those of you out there who believe in love stories, and live in a fantasy world, and are hoping Jillian finds the perfect guy, falls madly in love, and gets engaged at the end of the season. This show has always pushed the bounds of ridiculousness, but this stuff takes the cake. Now they’re resorting to paying guys to come on the show with promises of making the final two? Yikes. Even for them that’s pretty low. Gonna be real interesting to watch this season knowing all this. If two guys already turned down 70k to be part of the final two, I wonder what the eventual final two guys are getting? And is there a reason no one has ever publicly asked Mike Fleiss, Chris Harrison, or ABC, “Hey, how much does your Bachelor/ette get paid to do the show?” If no one wants to ask it, I certainly will. There’s a reason no one’s asked and it’s because they don’t want to have to answer it. Because once they start throwing around figures of what these people are paid, then, all the rumors about the show start becoming more believable.

-I think another interesting point about how “scripted” the show is how the announcement of Jillian as the “Bachelorette” played out. Mike Fleiss admitted publicly that they were going to ask Molly to be the next one because she was the final two girl. Then when they got wind of Jason “changing his mind”, they asked Melissa, and she declined. So he’s been on record as saying essentially that Jillian was their 3rd choice. Well, Jillian was announced as the next “Bachelorette” on “live” TV March 3rd during the ATFR 2 show. The show was taped the Friday before on the 26th, which means they came to an agreement with her sometime a little before that. So if Jillian is officially signed on as the “Bachelorette” in late February, yet they’ve been casting for the show for months in advance, doesn’t that pretty much tell you that they’re just casting roles, and not necessarily casting 25 men specifically for Jillian?

-If this show is claiming they are out to find the 25 guys that suit Jillian the best, wouldn’t all casting begin AFTER they’ve decided on who the “Bachelorette” will be? Of course it would, but that’s not the way it works. There’s no way that the 25 guys this season were all scouted, interviewed, tested, and prepped for tonights meet-and-greet all in the last month. Impossible. Casting directors pick out certain guys they like, they place them on the show, and only afterwards do they find out who they’re “competing” for. And apparently this season, are throwing around gobs of cash guaranteeing them spots in the final two, as well as false promises that if they don’t get picked, they would end up being the next “Bachelor”. Even Fleiss made it perfectly clear in an interview recently where he said people are more interested in the “Bachelor” or “Bachelorette” when they’ve seen them before and have followed their storyline. Hence the reason DeAnna was cast, then Jason, and now Jillian. And you can bet your ass our next “Bachelor” will come from this crop of 25 guys competing for Jillian. Just one big recycle going on now. It’s too much of a risk for them to cast someone that no one has formed any opinion about already as the focal point of their show.

I think many, many people will be watching "The Bachelorette" with a jaundiced eye after this Bachelor season. I know I (if I watch at all, and that will depend on what it is up against on the TV lineup) won't give a hoot who she ends up with and will be viewing it all as fiction. Basically, the "reality" of it all has totally gone out the window anyway. Good-looking guys are fun to watch but just as eye-candy this year, not as serious contenders for Jillian's hand in marriage.

He is cute, he looks younger than 34 doesn't he? I bet being on the Bachelor might help his business. Twisted Evil
