Nick’s parents and siblings were on hand for support, and expressed their concerns that Nick was possibly setting himself up for another devastating rejection. They weren’t alone. Nick had fears of his own, recalling how former Bachelorettes Andi Dorfman and Kaitlyn Bristowe had left him gutted despite his confidence in each relationship at the time. His...

Like a zillion other people who have nothing better to do than watch 25 blonde women named Lauren/Lauryn/Lawren/L’Ryne fight for one man’s heart every Monday night, we can’t wait for tonight’s finale episode of The Bachelor. No, not because we’ll finally find out who Ben Higgins chooses (#TeamJoJo for the record), but because this is...

MPNC / AKM-GSI, Gabriel Grams/WireImage There’s no denying it—The Bachelor is TV phenomenon and no one is immune to it. Jimmy Kimmel is obsessed, often discussing it openly on his late night-talk show host, and Donnie Wahlberg is a huge fan. Often tweeting about it, Wahlberg has made his passion for the reality TV dating show known, even letting his...

[unable to retrieve full-text content] Let’s be honest: this season of The Bachelor has become The Olivia Show. And to be a little more honest, she deserves it. At this point, while she’s not the only one who’s… ...

Well, if there’s one way to make sure things get interesting on everyone’s favorite dating show, it’s to take the Bachelor and plop him down in Mexico along with the remaining 11 women vying for his heart. This week, ABC did just that with Ben Higgins, and things got pretty – dare we say it? – dramatic. A Few Observations from the Arrival...

Bachelor nation, rejoice: The fateful day is upon us. On Monday night, fans finally got to watch the premiere of Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor – the hit show’s 20th season – and to absolutely no one’s surprise at all, we can officially crown him the sweetest Bachelor, dare we say, in Bachelor history. (AKA the complete opposite...

By Jessica Fecteau @jessfect 07/30/2015 AT 04:15 PM EDT What was supposed to be a lighthearted game of wife-swapping turned into major backlash for The Bachelor‘s Sean Lowe. Sean and wife Catherine swapped places with The Bachelor season 13’s Molly and Jason Mesnick on Wednesday night’s Celebrity Wife Swap. Molly, a full-time worker and mom to daughter Riley, 2, thought life would be easy when she took on Catherine’s role. But when Molly woke up to the to-do list Sean left for her, which included ironing his...

What a kind gesture! Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth may be the most recent Bachelorette success story, but the show sure does have a long track record of relationships falling apart. Luckily for the young lovers, one half of the three lasting Bachelor couples is offering his advice how to make their marriage work after meeting on Reality TV. [ Related: Kaitlyn...

Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe Jim Wright By Aili Nahas 07/29/2015 AT 01:30 PM EDT Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth open up about breaking the rules and their plans for a (really big) family. Subscribe now for all the details plus exclusive photos, only in PEOPLE! Spoiler alert! Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth created a social media firestorm when a Snapchat...

By Aili Nahas 07/28/2015 AT 12:15 AM EDT Just minutes before proposing to Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nick Viall was dealt a crushing blow: She is in love with someone else. “I was in shock,” Viall tells PEOPLE exclusively of being dumped by Bristowe, who got engaged to Shawn Booth on Monday night’s The Bachelorette finale. “And then reality set in...

Brady Toops and Britt Nilsson Rick Rowell/ABC By Michele Corriston @mcorriston 07/22/2015 AT 03:10 PM EDT Bachelorette fans were shocked to learn that Brady Toops and Britt Nilsson ended their romance shortly after stepping away from the cameras – despite the “going strong” updates that ABC aired each week. “Everything on paper was perfect,”...

By Aili Nahas 07/21/2015 AT 04:00 PM EDT He left The Bachelorette in tears after Kaitlyn Bristowe decided to send him home, but Jared Haibon isn’t bitter about her decision. “I know how hard of a day that was for both of us,” the restaurant manager tells PEOPLE. “There were parts of me that wanted to go back and pull a romantic gesture like Heath Ledger walking down the bleachers in 10 Things I Hate About You, but that’s not the way it works here. There were three other guys after me. Kaitlyn and I had a...

ABC You thought last night was dramatic?   “I knew this night would be a wild one,” Chris Harrison said early on during last night’s Men Tell All episode of The Bachelorette.  Which is true, and just like its female counterpart when a Bachelor is doing the picking, the Men Tell All special did not disappoint when it came to drama. (Think...

This was a surprisingly powerful episode of television! It’s no secret that Kaitlyn Bristowe has been polarizing during her stint as The Bachelorette, but we didn’t realize just how hard a time she’s been having ever since her season wrapped. During Monday night’s Men Tell All special, ABC‘s dating show used its platform to get serious about cyber bullying and slut shaming. Host Chris Harrison even went as far as reading some of the horrifying tweets and emails the 30-year-old received after it was televised...

ABC Good evening. This is going to be a slightly different kind of Bachelorette recap than the one I usually do. That’s partly because tonight was a different kind of Bachelorette than the one that usually airs. Not only did the men tell all, but they also touched on some very important issues that go beyond a silly show about people attempting to find love. Much...

Ben Higgins of The Bachelorette ABC By Aili Nahas @ailinahas 07/20/2015 AT 10:10 PM EDT Based on the (mostly female) audience reaction on Ben Higgins at Monday night’s The Bachelorette: Men Tell All special, the baby-faced software salesman should be a shoo-in as the next Bachelor. “People have been very nice,” Higgins tells PEOPLE. “When...

In which the men tell … some. This week’s episode of The Bachelorette was allegedly the Men Tell All special; however, it was mostly men just arguing with each other about things they’ve already argued about. That’s fair enough, since the Women Tell All special from Chris Soules’ season was equally as illuminating on the side of the contestants, which is to say not very much at all. However, we did hear some pretty candid thoughts from Kaitlyn, who revealed that she got “death threats” after having...

By Michele Corriston @mcorriston 07/15/2015 AT 07:05 PM EDT Former Bachelorette contestant JJ Lane is telling his side of the story after getting into a brawl over the weekend. Lane, 32, was hospitalized after he and a crew member were ambushed Saturday night after taping the show’s Men Tell All special, TMZ reports. The single dad addressed the incident Wednesday on Twitter, writing that he “stood up for a friend” and got “two black eyes.” “Wrong place and wrong time,” he added. It was an unfortunate...

Instagram Rachel Truehart has found her happily ever after! The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad alumna had quite the special Fourth of July when her boyfriend Ronnie Lustberg popped the important engagement question. “He proposed in Central Park on the Great Lawn,” Truehart shared with E! News exclusively. “He had a burlap picnic basket set up...

ABC/Clodagh Kilcoyne  “Are you in love with me? Yes or no?” If you thought last week’s episode of The Bachelorette was dramatic, wait ‘til you get a load of tonight’s game changer. Seriously, did someone write this? Did they secretly make this a scripted drama without us knowing about it? That was just dramatically brutal, and...

Due to the nature of The Bachelorette‘s bizarre, semi-polyamorous approach to dating, more than a few tears were shed on this week’s episode as Kaitlyn got closer to making her final choice. For her part, Kaitlyn continued to feel guilty about her decision to sleep with Nick, as seen in last week’s audience-dividing episode. Meanwhile, Shawn was as singularly focused on Nick’s relationship with Kaitlyn as ever, likely because this is the first time in his life he’s ever not had a woman’s undivided attention....

Kaitlyn Bristowe of The Bachelorette Craig Sjodin/ABC By K.C. Blumm 06/23/2015 AT 01:00 AM EDT In the worst-kept secret of this season of The Bachelorette, Kaitlyn Bristowe and newcomer Nick Viall got busy behind closed doors on Monday’s episode. Bristowe has previously defended herself against the backlash from critics who she said slut-shamed her, but...

Gloss Photography Nick Viall is not here for your Bachelorette slut-shaming.  Throughout tonight’s incredibly eventful episode of The Bachelorette, the current and former contestant took to Twitter to make a few things clear about his time with Kaitlyn behind closed doors and to shut down anyone who’s shaming Kaitlyn for her actions, or for her...

ABC Yeah yeah, tonight was the episode where Kaitlyn blew the whole season out of the water and it was all very dramatic, but that was not the highlight of the night for us. No, that award—as well as the award for most confusing, hilarious, and quotable exit this season—goes to Ian! At the end of last week’s episode, he had just started his Kaitlyn-directed...

Your Reaction? She sure is good at providing drama! Kaitlyn Bristowe had a more difficult job surviving night one of her season of The Bachelorette than her predecessors had during their entire runs. So, when the 29-year-old announced last week that she was bringing back Nick Viall from Andi Dorfman‘s season of the ABC reality show, we had a feeling that things were going to get dramatic. Well, we weren’t expecting her guys to turn on her so soon, because one of her suitors, who just so happens to be the potential winner...

ABC We never thought we’d say this with Shawn B. around, but there’s a new man in our lives. We’ve had glimpses of Ben H.’s superior handsomeness before, but tonight he really shined above the rest to make us feel like maybe, just maybe, if Kaitlyn’s Snapchat snafu was legit and Shawn B. is now taken, Ben H. can be our backup unrealistic...

What is actually up with the Bachelorette contestants this season? With each passing episode, a new suitor completely self-destructs. After Ryan M., Kupah and Tony, Monday’s episode had former front-runner Ian going completely off the rails over a bruised ego. He also slut-shamed Kaitlyn while going on about all the sex he has and how he’s such a great...

By Amanda Michelle Steiner @amandamichl 06/12/2015 AT 04:45 PM EDT The Bachelorette is about to get more uncomfortable than ever – and no, we haven’t forgotten that time JJ Lane slapped himself in the face, Mark Wahlberg-in-Fear-style. While none of Kaitlyn Bristowe’s suitors on The Bachelorette were particularly impressed by her decision to add Andi Dorfman reject Nick Viall to the roster, Shawn Booth seems to take the news more poorly than the rest. In an exclusive sneak peek at Monday’s episode, Shawn won’t...

Arielle Kebbel Jean Baptiste Lacroix/WireImage By Michele Corriston @mcorriston 06/07/2015 AT 05:05 PM EDT Although Arielle Kebbel played the token “bitch” contestant on – and first booted off – UnREAL‘s faux dating show, she didn’t draw from suitors of Bachelors past. Kebbel, 30, hasn’t watched the ABC juggernaut –...

Who’s that returning to the set of Bachelorette just in the “nick” of time? (Yes, we see what you did there, ABC.) It’s Nick Viall, the runner-up from the previous season of the show. When we last saw Viall, he was still stinging from being passed over by Andi Dorfman. (He later told PEOPLE he was “blindsided” by Dorfman’s decision.) Is he returning for a second shot of love with Kaitlyn Bristowe? That’s not the only question this week’s teaser will make fans ask. Just what exactly...

ABC If you like men wearing diapers, and getting real scared of snakes…then tonight’s Bachelorette was just for you! There were so many moments throughout tonight’s episode that felt like real love to us, and we’re talking about us, not Kaitlyn. We fell hard for Shawn B. the moment we saw him on the premiere (and even before), and then...

If you thought that Kupah would be the only problem contestant on The Bachelorette, you would be so very, very wrong. Though this week’s episode picked up where we last left off – with Kupah melting down over being asked to leave early – we also watched Tony the Healer lose his cool following a bout of sumo wrestling. Clint and JJ, too, revealed...

Clint Arlis (left) and JJ Lane on The Bachelorette ABC By Amanda Michelle Steiner @amandamichl 06/01/2015 AT 09:40 PM EDT As Kaitlyn Bristowe got to know the remaining 13 contestants on The Bachelorette, there was another relationship blooming among the ranks. With all of their downtime in the Bachelorette mansion, Clint Arlis and JJ Lane bonded over music, hot...

Clint Arlis on The Bachelorette By Amanda Michelle Steiner @amandamichl 05/29/2015 AT 08:35 PM EDT For the first time in Bachelorette history, a same-sex relationship may be brewing between two of the contestants vying for the heart of the Bachelorette. That’s what ABC has teased, at least, in a promo for Monday’s episode that suggests Clint Arlis...

Nothing mends a broken heart like some pint-sized kisses. A day after The Bachelor‘s Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff confirmed they ended their engagement, the farmer’s former fiancée posted a video of an adorable little girl (perhaps a relative?) blowing her kisses. “Now this little gal knows how to make me smile! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your outpouring love, kindness and support! It means so much to me!” the fertility nurse captioned the video. Soules also Tweeted his gratitude Friday: I...

Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops Courtesy Britt Nilsson By Amanda Michelle Steiner @amandamichl 05/26/2015 AT 05:50 PM EDT Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops are proof that The Bachelor and its various franchises truly do work, albeit in mysterious ways. After Nilsson, 27, was voted out of the running as this season’s Bachelorette, she still managed to find love....

Amy Schumer on Inside Amy Schumer By Alex Heigl @alex_heigl 05/26/2015 AT 07:35 AM EDT Between the boxing and the stand-up comedy, a lot happened on The Bachelorette Monday. But the key takeaway – other than that having a bunch of dudes hit each other is an awkward way to impress a lady – is that a lot of people really liked Amy Schumer’s appearance....

ABC/Craig Sjodin Dramaaaaaa! A villain has emerged, and it’s strangely not Jared, the man with the face of a thousand Disney bad guys. We may have appreciated JJ’s dirty puck joke upon meeting Kaitlyn last week, but that was only because it mirrored her opening joke to Chris last season. JJ has now officially landed on our list of people who are definitely...

And you thought that having 25 men vote for either Britt Nilsson or Kaitlyn Bristowe as their next Bachelorette would be the most uncomfortable thing to watch, as a woman, on this season of The Bachelorette. Naïve. This week, eight of Kaitlyn’s suitors took to a boxing ring to fight each other/posture manfully, and Ben Z. ended up sending Jared to the hospital...

05/21/2015 at 06:15 PM ET Known for her girl-next-door sense of humor (and what she calls her “fat-man laugh”), The Bachelorette‘s Kaitlyn Bristowe doesn’t take herself too seriously. After all, she entered a semi-polygamous, reality dating competition. Let’s be real. That said, her Instagram is full of hidden gems...

Britt and Kaitlyn (ABC) The men have spoken, and this year’s “Bachelorette” has been chosen. Spoiler alert! Chris Harrison was forced to deliver bad news to… Britt, which means Kaitlyn is “The Bachelorette.” PHOTOS: Meet ‘The Bachelorette’ Men “Unfortunately, you’re not going to be ‘The Bachelorette,’...

ABC/Craig Sjodin Gotta be honest here: That was boring…until the season highlights promo. Chris Harrison wasted no time whatsoever in revealing the result of the vote: Britt Nilsson is not going to be the Bachelorette, meaning our girl Kaitlyn Bristowe is now tasked with finding the love of her life as dramatically as she can on national television. Lucky...

Kaitlyn Bristowe (left) and Britt Nilsson Craig Sjodin/ABC By Aili Nahas AND Lanford Beard 05/19/2015 AT 07:00 AM EDT Going into The Bachelorette‘s premiere Monday night, one thing was certain: The twist of having two potential Bachelorettes face off would be awkward. Surprisingly, though, the two women in question – Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson...

Nothing says appreciating your fans like making them sit through a two-hour episode only to keep them in the dark. We knew the new season of The Bachelorette was going to be dramatic, but we weren’t expecting it to be so anticlimactic right off the bat. That’s why we were disappointed to tune in for the ABC reality show’s premiere on Monday and...

ABC/Rick Rowel Dumb dumb dumb. That’s how we’re feeling about this crazy twist that sort of undermined the entire reason The Bachelorette is so great. We like watching the woman have the power. We always love The Bachelor, but it’s refreshing to watch the woman make all the decisions while a bunch of guys fight over her. It’s thrilling...

The Bachelorette is back! Now with two Bachelorettes, a male stripper, a man who calls himself a “healer” and, as ever, the accusation that someone isn’t on the reality dating competition for the Right Reasons. The premiere opened with a voiceover from host Chris Harrison pointing out all the worst traits of Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson, essentially...

ABC/Adam Taylor The queen has left the building. We were having so much fun tonight we almost totally forgot there was even an elimination, and we were definitely saddened to see that it was the incredible Patti LaBelle who had to go. That was pretty much the best episode yet this season. We thought we loved Disney week last week, but spring break week had some...

Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff Ari Michelson By Aili Nahas 03/11/2015 AT 07:40 AM EDT Now that all the hullabaloo of The Bachelor is over, Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff, who got engaged on the ABC hit’s Monday finale, are ready to start a “normal” life. Well … sort of. For the time being, as Prince Farming prepares to tango and...
