Let's talk TV for a minute!!

Let's start with "The Bachelor"...


I will admit. I am HOOKED on this show. I watched it for along time. I think like the first several seasons. Then I took a break because of college. My nights out took precedence over "The Bachelor." But Hubs and I (he was forced) started watching it again when Matt from England came on. Well I have been hooked back on it ever since. I will go ahead and say... I liked Deanna... really I did! I was rooting so much for her to find love! I mean she is from Newnan, GA and that is like 20 minutes from me. I shop there for goodness sake so I liked her before I even "knew" her. Well needless to say, I don't like her anymore. She picked who I thought was not right for her, Jesse, but then they convinced me they were perfect together and I loooooved them together! Then she broke his heart. And well... now... I am TEAM JESSE!!!! (Although I think he is dating a bachelorette from the "The Bachelor: London Calls" that I don't really like). I think she picked him because she thought it was the best thing to do for her "career." She is a fame loving person who I think did "The Bachelorette" to further her career. So there I am last night watching Jason, the new bachelor, I am getting all excited because I know he is now engaged and I am wondering who... when they show clips for the rest of the season and stinkin' Deanna comes back and says "I made a mistake picking Jesse!" WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!! What!!!!!!!! You huzzy!!! I was quite angry. I was yelling at the TV, might have said one or two cuss words. Hubs and the pups were looking at me like I was crazy. I was so dang mad, I am getting all fired up again just thinking about it. Boo on that. It makes me mad that ABC even allowed her to walk back into his life. All I have to say is she better not be the one he's engaged to. I pray that this is her just "fame-whoring" herself out again (sorry for the harshness)! I will seriously be so sad if he picked her. Surely not. He's a smart man! Right? Oh I hope so!

So how many of you ladies watched it and what did you think??? I have a favorite or two... Miss Illinois is my fave so far! But there are several others I can see him with. And some I can DEF see not working out for him. Oh the suspense!!!

And now onto The Biggest Loser...



It starts tonight so what better time to get some motivation than now... with this new year we have and all! :) So make sure to tune into NBC for the two hour premiere! It's gonna be great! I am pumped... Hubs, not so much!! :) ha. We can discuss tomorrow as part of my WWW post that is sure to be GREAT! I promise. I will be sharing recipes and what it's like to be picky, not much of a meat or veggie eater and still lose 23 pounds in 3 months. (yeah I surprisingly lost 2 pounds during the holidays.) More on that tomorrow ladies!!! :)

i never liked jesse. i didn't like him on the show and i don't like him now. i don't like deanna either, though. :) the only season of the bachelor or bachelorette that i've missed is the one with the officer and a gentleman.

i don't have any predictions yet. i didn't love anyone. i doubt he picks deanna. i'm sure he can see through that. he is a smart man. :)

i'm pumped for biggest loser. todd isn't , but i am!

I haven't watched The Bachelor since the one season with that cute souther blonde named Brooke! It felt like she could be my best friend! Anywho...I can't wait for your post tomorrow! I am definitely watching BL tonight! I just posted a long depressing post about weight! =(

You are SUCH AN INSPIRATION girl!! Thanks for being such an awesome blogger!

Mrs. Nurse said...

i was never for her being with Jesse and hopefully the previews were to just draw us in and he doesn't let her back in :)

Emily said...

Ok... I totally almost wigged out last nite too... all the girls were sobbing and he was even crying... i am sure it was just to keep people watching... because she totally bugs.... she broke his heart and he is stupid if he were to propose to her.

Mojito Maven said...

confession: the only season i have watched was the very first bachlorette with trista and ryan...clearly i have been missing out

YAYAY for the biggest loser!!

Jennifer said...

We have the same taste in TV! If Jason picks Deanna, that would be horrible for all the other girls who are spending their time at the ranch to find true love. I never really liked Deanna...

Can't wait for Biggest Loser. I'm anxious to read your commentary!

Katy said...

I love Melissa, and Stephanie, and miss illinois one, they are so gorgeous its rediculous!

southern daze said...

I gasped when I saw Deanna in the previews for this season's Bachelor. I was pretty surprised they let her back on, but knowing how reality tv works, they may have been the ones to ask her in order to increase the drama & viewership. My heart tells me that he's won't pick her and I'm excited to see who did win his heart (he's such a cutie!)

Did you see the part in last night's preview where he's crying (looked to me like he was sobbing)? What a gut wrenching moment and it totally tore my heart. I wonder what caused that reaction. I guess time will only tell...

Whitney said...

WELL tell us how you really feel! Ha!
I never liked Jesse or Deanna so I'm psyched that Jason is getting his turn! No predictions, but I'm keeping a close eye on Melissa!

SassyEngineer said...

I am an on again off again Bachelor watcher. Jeremy, last year from Dallas that was a lawyer was in my BIL's law class so I rooted for him, but then Jesse won me over because I thought they were cute and quirky. Anyway, I have to admit that I never really loved Deanna. I actually loved Jenny because she was from my hometown, but it looks like she found love afterwards anyway!

tootie said...

I know - I can't believe that Deanna comes back!

I can already tell that I'm going to be hooked on this season. I was glued to the TV last night!

Island Girl said...

I'm so excited for the Biggest Loser too! I'm pretty sure that's what got me through the day, haha!

Congrats on the 2 pound weight loss during the holidays! I stayed even but I'm chalking that up in the win column :)

Cali Girl said...

im hooked on the bachelor and bachelorette too... love the show. i was sooo annoyed to see deanna in the previews BUT i dont think jason will end up with her... i think he can do MUCH better.. cant wait to watch though, love the drama!

Allison said...

I will DEFINITELY be watching this season! Looks like lots of drama (love), including Deanna (hate).

Kate said...

SOOOO pumped about Biggest Loser... SOOOO hate Deanna... SOOOO love the girl w/ the Hot Dog Theory!!!!

Krystyn said...

I don't do much TV anymore....are you trying to get me addicted to a new show? I just can't do it!

The Ballard's said...

You just named two of my favorite shows! I seriously am addicted to reality t.v. and force my husband to watch it all with me. If they let DeAnna back with him and I watch the whole season for that I'm going to be pretty mad since i can't stand her or the girl with the vision board. I had that in middle school and it was a collage.

Watching Biggest Loser now, they just said 9 people were going home! AHH!

Thanks for your inspiration, your posts have made hop back on my treadmill and start watching what I eat.

Mrs. Cup said...

I think the new Bachelor is too cute. I can't wait to see who he picks!!!

luckeelady said...

I can honestly say I've watched every season of the bachelor... not sure about all the bachelorette though... I did watch Deanna. I didn't like her before that even when he broke her heart at the last rose ceremony. At one time I thought I might have liked her for a split second but realized she really was a selfish all about herself person.

I did watch it last night and have it set to record for the rest of the season... I had to rewind it at the beginning when all the girls were saying where they were from. I'm orig. from Stockton, CA and so are one of the girls, and when she said where she was from I ha to laugh because she said IT'S NOT THAT GREAT OF A PLACE! at least she was honest. I call it the ghetto valley.

M and G said...

Congrats on losing weight during the holidays! That in itself is amazing!

morewineplease said...

I never could stand Jesse... blows my mind that she was attracted to him... I was pissed too, but super anxious to see what happens.

SouthernAccent said...

I'm telling you it was like you were in my head - I went through the exact same feelings with Deanna - liking her, then not, then back and forth with Jesse, then feeling sorry for him - and SOOOOOOOOO shocked to see her back on the new show!!! Like you said, he BETTER not be engaged to her. I'm hoping that all that was just creative editing, to make us think something was up...we'll see I suppose!

Kitty Cat said...

I see you got some blog mojo back!

Lynsey and Brian said...

I can't wait for your WWW post!

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

I missed both shows this week...I will try my best to catch them next week. I am up and down with the Bachelor, but this season looks like a good one. I only like to watch them if I think the Bachelor is attractive, and this season I do. That would be really bad it he does pick Deanna, so unfair not to follow the rules of the show! It would be a total disappointment!

Andi said...

Ahhh. I just wrote a really long comment and lost it!

I hate to break it to you but ABC plots all of this out way in advance. One of the recent Bachelors is a really good friend of my family and he regrets the show SOOOOOO much. All contestants and Bachelors/ettes are under heavy contracts that state that ABC can recall them at anytime for any show or appearance. Every woman on that show is there to be "famous". They are just desperate to be on TV. The woman my friend picked was a real piece of work. My family went to a party that ABC threw for them and the woman was SOOOOO rude to everyone. She left the party at 9:30 because thats when the camera's left. She left "the love of her life Bachelor" without even saying goodbye. He looked for her for 30 mins before a studio exec came up and told him she was done "working" for the night. They weren't allowed to see each other without an ABC exec until the show stops airing and by the time they had the reunion show they had already "broken up" and she was "hosting" parties at clubs. She looked like such a sweetheart on the show too. She was the one everyone rooted for.

Kari Beth said...

oh my gosh! i am so sad...we got rid of our dvr so i am going to miss all these shows :(...my life is over!

Kristy said...

I didn't catch the Bachelor Monday night, but I downloaded the episode online last night and watched and I too was yelling when they reintroduced Deanna in the upcoming scenes..WTF? He can do so much better than all of the strange women they picked...I mean seriously...where do they find these crazies? I hope he picks someone semi-normal!

amy (metz) walker said...

Ok, last season was the only one I've really ever watched and now I'm definitely going to watch this one.

I actually really liked Jesse. I thought he was totally cheesy at first, but I had to give him the fact that he seemed to be very authentic about who he was. Like you, I was surprised that she picked Jesse and totally ended up thinking they were perfect together.

That said, I also thought Jason was in love with the idea of love...but I'm hoping this season will prove me wrong. And BOO Deana is right! I don't like her any more!

Justin and Jenn said...

Oh I am addicted!!! I've watched since season #2 (Aaron Buerge...from Springfield, MO)..I got to meet him! Anyway, I am not happy that Deanna is back.

savannah redtops said...

I was so upset seeing the preview with that silly deanna on there! I mean THIS IS HIS TIME, NOT YOURS! I always thought there was something shady about her, especially when she chose Jesse over Jason, how crazy! What a breath of fresh air to see that Jason has such a great assortment of girls to choose from, hopefully Deanna won't get in the way!

Elizabeth said...

AMEN! I was def yelling at the TV when they showed the preview of DeAnna coming back. I hope, hope, hope she is not the one he is engaged to! I also LOVE the Biggest Loser and cannot wait to see it this week. :)

Christina said...

I haven't watched this show since college and watched this season's first episode...and I am hooked. looks like its going to be an eventful season with Deanna coming back in the picture!!!!

Landra Lynn said...

Jason was my pick from the first night with Deanna. I used to like her and now I can't STAND her. She has done exactly what Brad did to her in the first place. Ugh!

I am a big fan of Melissa from Dallas (is it just me, or does she look like Mandy Moore?) and the widow. We'll see what happens!
