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...
This week's episode was my favorite of every Bachelor season — the Women Tell All. And boy did they tell all. Melissa and Raichel continued to argue, Michelle continually cried and Ashley H debuted her brand new look.
Before we get to the current season, Chris tells us about all the reunions held between previous contestants. I was there to witness the craziness first hand, but ABC managed to catch a lot more scandalous moments on camera than we did.
On this week's special Valentine's Day episode of The Bachelor, Brad and the six remaining women visit Anguilla, where they partake in a steamy Sports Illustrated swimsuit photo shoot. Four win roses, while one girl is asked to leave during the date. Plus: Brad cancels the cocktail party.
Chris Harrison knows viewers dislike Michelle, but he feels people have to give Brad time to figure it out. In the weekly TVGuide.com chat with The Bachelor host, he explains how Michelle uses her looks to get her way, why he was surprised Chantal dropped the L-bomb so early on and if Brad will be in a better mood next week.
Please explain why Michelle is still around.
Chris Harrison: People need to understand this was really the first week where Michelle started to annoy him. For the viewer, this has been happening since Week 1, but all he's seen is the sexy woman who always challenges him and then makes out with him. And she's hot. Let's face it...
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.
