Our top moments of the week:
11. Most Passive-Aggressive Duo: After completing the frog-in-a-mud-pit Detour on The Amazing Race in what can only be described as adult diapers, Kent marvels at how cold it was in the pit -- not to mention, the fact that his goth makeup held up. "Were you cold?" he asks gal pal Vyxsin. She responds: "No, because I was working really hard." Oh, snap!
10. Most Outrageous Flirting: On Bethenny Ever After, the newlywed/new mom shamelessly flirts with Dan, a delish Rachael Ray Show producer — or as Bethenny calls him, "a tall, cute glass of...
On this week's The Bachelor, Brad and the ladies are headed to Costa Rica where there's rain, rain and more rain. But that doesn't put a damper on the dates. The first one-on-one goes to Chantal and it begins with the typical Bachelor mode of transportation — helicopter. As they head off, Michelle dreams that Chantal gets attacked by monkeys or apes, and that's probably the nicest thing she said all episode. Did I mention she called Chantal aggressive and overly confident? Yep, the pot calling the kettle black.
The Bachelor group is headed to Las Vegas and these women are about to show us why it's nicknamed Sin City. The women open the doors to their suite and incredible doesn't describe it. The first date card is revealed and it's for...
The claws come out on The Bachelor, and Michelle mysteriously wakes up with a black eye she claims appeared overnight. What?
Chantal is the first to get the one-on-one date with Brad this week and they set out in a private helicopter to the ocean. She is terrified upon learning they'll be walking on the sea floor, but she sucks it up and it doesn't take long for Chantal to soak it in and enjoy the moment as the two wander the ocean bottom with smoke monster-looking creatures in their wake. Afterward, the two share their own private villa on the water where Brad asks Chantal if...
As the connections continue to develop on The Bachelor and the first kisses begin to happen, Michelle gets more and more possessive. Plus: One of the girls reveals her extremely emotional past.
Ashley S gets the first one-on-one date this week and she and Brad head off in a convertible to Capitol Records. They go into the recording studio where they must sing "Kiss from a Rose" by Seal. Brad is pretty sure it's going to sound awful and he's right, but they hold hands and are totally into it. "I apologize, Mr. Seal," Brad says after the song. They then walk into a another room and Seal is there to sing his hit for them. I'm actually surprised it took 15 seasons to get him on the show.
Although Ashley H. received the first Bachelor one-on-one date and she and Brad quickly developed a bond, host Chris Harrison warns that she may get hit hard with "first-date syndrome."
While the season's first date went well, it was a tougher road to the rose for Jackie, who alarmed Brad when she revealed her lack of past relationships. Harrison weighs in on why Jackie raised a red flag and says he was surprised that Keltie, who he calls "cute on a stick," got axed so quickly.
The ladies of The Bachelor have moved into their mansion and it's time to start the dates with Brad.
"Use your time wisely," Chris Harrison warns the women. Ashley H. is the lucky winner who receives the very first one-on-one. As she and Brad head off, they venture onto a dark dirt road where it appears they could be starring in a teaser for Law & Order: SVU. But, of course, it's just The Bachelor, and after Brad instructs Ashley to flip a switch, lights come on to reveal they're in an insanely awesome carnival. Thank you, ABC, now I expect my own personal carnival on my next date.
Welcome back to another season of The Bachelor where the lucky guy this year is a familiar face — Brad Womack. Now I'm sure a bunch of you are skeptical about this season, as am I, but the more I've spoke to Brad himself and host Chris Harrison, the more I think we're in for a fun ride. Hope you'll join me!
