Sarah Kowalski and Tigh Rickman are recent graduates of Stonecoast MFA. Both longtime fans of reality televison, they are both relative newcomers to ABC’s The Bachelor. However, much like crack cocaine, it only took a small hit to hook them both, and now both watch religiously with their fiction writers’ eyes.
The Bachelorette ; The Men Tell All: BEHIND THE SCENES OF BACHELORLAND
Last week, we left fair Ali beside the rockfish-laden waters of Tahiti, where though Frank’s departure had elicited many tears and much self-pity, she still had two worthy suitors remaining: Chris and Roberto. Whom would she choose? The man from Nantucket, the fellow Masshole and flip-cup champion, the sensitive son who wears his dead mom’s signature tattooed on his manly chest? Or the “man in uniform” (baseball uniform, that is), the sooooo-good-looking Latin hottie and fellow Lion King stage-dangler, Rico Suave himself? We don’t know, because this week was all about revisiting our past before we could move on to glimpse Ali’s future. And what a past it was… in “The Men Tell All.”
Sarah: This episode did get a little repetitive after a while, didn’t it? Chris Harrison kept turning to the camera to reassure us, “Don’t worry, we’ll spend MORE time talking about Justin after this break…” and I kept replying, “WHY?” I think my favorite part of the show was the blooper reels. Ali screaming like a banshee and scrabbling away from that mouse… Craig R. with his hand in a champagne bucket of warm water… there were so many good times that we’d missed out on the first time around.
Tigh: I’m right there with you. The Craig bedwetting was by far one of the funniest things of the night, mainly because of how long it took him to come to. Was he hammered? How do you stay that semi-conscious for so long?
Sarah: He must’ve been. Speaking of hammered, how classic was it that Ali had zero memory she’d ever put on that space helmet in the museum — did you catch her slurring like a cartoon drunkard in her interviews from that night?
Tigh: Well, she was definitely drunk. And she pretty much always is. I think that the weight loss that she experienced in preparation to be The Bachelorette probably lowered her tolerance more than she bargained for. It seems like back in the days of the group dates we’d always mention that Ali was looking a little sauced. But back to Rated R, I totally agree. Chris T.M. kept teasing us, but did he really expect us to believe there would be more? They really needed him there in studio to make any discussion of him pop. Otherwise you’re just going to get what we got–a bunch of butt-hurt guys kvetching about him and blaming him for their exit from the show. Really? You ALL would have ended up with Ali if not for Rated R not being there? Gimme a break. (more…)
