'The Bachelorette' Season 7, Episode 8 Recap

JP and Ashley['The Bachelorette' - 'Season 7, Episode 8']

Thanks to the sad lack of mounted animal carcasses or a secret weapons cache in anyone's basement, this year's 'Bachelorette' hometown dates were, I'm sorry to report, a complete snoozefest.

Not that I don't find JP's roller disco antics somewhat quaint, in a "we can smell the cheese from here," kind of way -- but when the evening's most eventful moments were a tie between JP falling over and every single relative Constantine has bursting through the door to accost Ashley, there may be a spark missing (sorry, Ames).

Excuse me while I go and check what my water heater is doing ...

'The Bachelorette': Ashley Meets the Guys' Families, Sends One Home (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 19th 2011 12:51AM
Ashley Hebert, 'The Bachelorette'Ashley Hebert took a whirlwind tour to four different families on 'The Bachelorette' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). It was the home visits week, which meant the four remaining bachelors would have to deal with all the skeletons of their families being laid bare before Ashley.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Actually, it was a pretty skeleton-free affair, meaning Ashley didn't learn any horrible secrets, or experience any crazy situations to help her make that agonizing decision to send one of those guys right back to the family she was just cozying and smiling with.

Emily Maynard is Not the Next 'Bachelorette' (Yet)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 13th 2011 7:25AM
Emily MaynardIt seems as though the rumors of Emily Maynard's continuing reality TV stardom may have been premature. 'The Bachelor(ette)' host Chris Harrison has shot down reports that the newly single Maynard is in the running to be the next 'Bachelorette.'

Harrison told 'Access Hollywood' that "Rumors of Emily being the 'Bachelorette' are greatly exaggerated. It is way too early, way too presumptuous of anybody to say she's 'The Bachelorette'."

He added that, "As far as TV goes, we don't go into production on 'The Bachelorette' for six more months. We would never pigeonhole ourselves ... this early."

'The Bachelorette' Season 7, Episode 7 Recap

Ashley['The Bachelorette' - Week 7]

Welcome back, eternal optimists and cynics alike -- time for another unpredictable night with 'The Bachelorette.'

As the show progresses, it seems like Ashley and the fellas are starting to unravel at a faster rate; there were tears aplenty this week, and not just from our lovelorn lady.

It's becoming apparent that some relationships are burning more slowly than others, and in this week's episode, Ashley seemed to be getting jittery that perhaps her Bentley break-up prophecy would come true, and she might end up pulling a Brad and wind up alone after the final rose.

Ashley's gameplay has been a little skewed, though, since she seems to have made a habit of placing too much value on the guys she hasn't even had a one-on-one date with yet.

Emily Maynard Confirms Brad Womack Split, But She's Still in Love With Him (VIDEO)

Emily Maynard, 'The Bachelorette'Emily Maynard came back to the mansion where she met Brad Womack on 'The Bachelor' to talk about and confirm their break-up. The interview aired as part of 'The Bachelorette' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) and saw Maynard adamant in her support of Womack.

"I'll always be in love with Brad," she told Chris Harrison. "No one will ever hear me say a bad word about him, nor will I tolerate anybody else saying anything bad about him."

So be careful what you say in the comments, as Maynard may be reading and she will not tolerate any Brad-bashing!

'Love in the Wild': 2x the Reality, 2x the Fun

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jul 4th 2011 2:30PM
I've never really followed an entire season of reality dating show, except for Meredith's turn on 'The Bachelorette', mainly because I was pretty sure she was doing it as a joke.

So color me surprised to find I actually enjoyed the debut of 'Love in the Wild' last week and have mentally penciled episode two into my calendar this Wednesday (9PM ET/PT, CTV/NBC). The show definitely hearkens back to the era of 'Paradise Hotel' or 'Temptation Island' but manages to feel like a fresher take on the pretty-people-in-a-hot-tub genre. Basically, it's a blatant attempt to mix 'Survivor' with 'The Bachelor'. The result includes some of the best and worst elements of both of those shows.

Bentley's Back, But is Ashley Still Swooning for Him on 'The Bachelorette'? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 28th 2011 1:10AM
Bentley, 'The Bachelorette'Ashley and the remaining boys are halfway around the world in Hong Kong on 'The Bachelorette' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC), but apparently that still isn't far enough to get away from Bentley.

Quite possibly the biggest d-bag to ever participate in a reality show must have decided he needed some more screen time if he was willing to fly to Hong Kong just to mess with Ashley some more.

He slipped right into his slimy, flirty persona and she was melting right into it for a while, but finally the truth started to come out and apparently Bentley let her off the hook. Only then did Ashley finally see him for what he is. Either that, or she's just hurt and angry and lashing out.

Ames Takes a Hard Hit to the Head Kickboxing on 'The Bachelorette' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 21st 2011 12:05AM
Ames and Ashley Hebert, 'The Bachelorette'There's an expression about taking one for the team, but Ames took one for the heart on 'The Bachelorette' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). Someone -- we're looking at you, producers! -- decided that a great date for Ashley and the boys would be to have the guys pair off and fight one another.

Since they're in Thailand, Muay Thai kickboxing was the fighting style and the men were given some training, but still it made for some uncomfortable moments for Ashley, as the spectator.

Maybe she's not the kind of girl who likes to watch two guys fighting for her affection ... well, literally fighting. She obviously doesn't mind the concept of guys competing, or else she wouldn't be on this show.

'The Bachelorette' Season 7, Episode 4 Recap

Ashley and her suitors['The Bachelorette' - 'Season 7, Episode 4']

If I hear the name "Bentley" one more time ...

As this week's 'Bachelorette' began, I cheerily hypothesized that taking a shot every time Ashley mentioned the B. word would result in a much more enjoyable viewing experience, but a quarter of the way through the show, I realized that the entire audience would be dead of alcohol poisoning by 10PM if they attempted it.

To be fair, that still might have been preferable to watching Ashley lament the premature exit of her One True Love all week long, but it probably wouldn't have made a good impression on ABC's advertisers.

Still, as infuriatingly oblivious as Ashley was this week, it's easy to forget that she wasn't privy to the dastardly side of Bentley we've seen from the start, since I'm fairly sure she wouldn't have been making gooey eyes up at the sky and taking pensive boat rides in Phuket if she'd heard him whining about how annoying it was that she wouldn't stop crying while he was trying to dump her.

Bachelor Pad logoIt's official: Jake and Vienna will showdown on ABC once more as the two reunite on 'Bachelor Pad.'

The second season of the 'Bachelor'/'Bachelorette' spinoff brings former castoffs from both shows together for a second (or, in Jake Pavelka's case, third) chance at televised love.

According to EW.com, among the contestants on this year's installment are the aforementioned 'Bachelor' Jake and his ex-fiance, Vienna Girardi, wrestler Justin "Rated R" Rego, second-time 'Bachelor Pad' resident Gia Allemand and more -- including three suitors from the current season of 'The Bachelorette.'

Look for added sparks thanks to the casting of Vienna's new beau Kasey Kahl and Gia Allemand, Vienna's friend/enemy/frenemy. Vienna reportedly spoiled Gia's relationship with 'Bachelorette' contestant Wes Hayden.

Check out the full list after the jump.

Jake Pavelka to Look for Love Once More on ABC's 'Bachelor Pad'

Jake PavelkaMaybe the third time will be the charm for Jake Pavelka.

The airline pilot has signed on as a contestant on ABC's 'Bachelor Pad,' the vaguely incestuous dating show comprised solely of 'Bachelor' and 'Bachelorette' castoffs that will air its second season later this summer.

Entertainment Weekly reports that filming has begun on 'Bachelor Pad,' and Pavelka was spotted out on a TV date with 'Bachelor' Season 15 contestant Jackie Gordon.

This will be Pavelka's third time competing on an ABC dating show. He wasn't right for Jillian Harris on the fifth season of 'The Bachelorette,' but he got another shot at televised love when he became the fourteenth 'Bachelor.' Unfortunately, he didn't find the one after all and ended his engagement with Vienna Girardi a year ago.

Bentley Breaks Ashley's Heart, Is Annoyed When She Cries, on 'Bachelorette' (VIDEO)

Bentley Williams, 'The Bachelorette'For three weeks, anyone who was actually hoping 'The Bachelorette' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC) may just lead Ashley Hebert to love, has been watching in frustration as she feel deeper and deeper in thrall to Bentley Williams.

Possibly the most purely despicable person to ever participate in any format of 'The Bachelor' franchise, he has delighted in his heinous behavior, and continued to do so this week. But apparently, there's only so long that Bentley is willing to mess with a girl he describes as "not attractive at all."

But even though he decided to leave, he made sure that his public image as the biggest douchebag in the world was intact. "It's annoying to just hold a girl that's just crying and crying and crying," he said after telling us he was going to go make her cry.

'The Bachelorette' Season 7, Episode 3 Recap

Ashley and Bentley['The Bachelorette' - 'Season 7, Episode 3']

Step aside, Wes Hayden, there's a new bad boy in town, and his hair is way better than yours. No season of 'The Bachelorette' would be complete without the guy you love to hate, but after this week's performance, Bentley Williams may be reality TV's Public Enemy Number One.

For three episodes, we've seen the single dad (someone call CPS) preen and scheme and cackle malevolently at Ashley's ignorance (and, to be fair, the girl has made some pretty laughable decisions this season), but the drama came to a head tonight.

Not because Bentley chose to own up and admit that he'd rather swim in pee than go on a wedding-themed date with our Bachelorette, of course, but because, up until the bitter end, he still had Ashley convinced that he was on the show for the Right Reasons.

Someone hand that man an Emmy.

Ashley Just Can't See How Horrible Bentley Is on 'The Bachelorette' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 31st 2011 1:32AM
Ashley Hebert & Bentley Williams, 'The Bachelorette'Bentley Williams continued his reign of terror on this season of 'The Bachelorette' (Mon., 8PM ET on ABC). We can't imagine what it's like for him or her watching these episodes, but Bentley is so blatantly playing Ashley Hebert and she simply can't see it.

His actions don't show men in a very good light and do a lot to explain why many women have such a hard time trusting guys. We don't know, obviously, how far Bentley makes it this season, but Ashley does. She must be beside herself in shock at how much he's not taking this seriously.

He's admitted she's hot, but not his type. He likes the idea of competing for her, so it really is just a game for him. He'd probably love nothing more than to beat all the other guys in the competition just to prove that he could and then tell her "No" at the end.

Another 'Bachelor' Breakup as Emily Maynard Hands Back the Ring

by PopEater Staff, posted May 24th 2011 7:55AM
Rumors have been circulating for a while now that all was not well between 'Bachelor' stars Emily Maynard and Brad Womack. Now we hear that Maynard's returned her engagement ring.

Us Weekly reports that Maynard was spotted running errands in Charlotte, N.C., without the rock Womack presented to her on 'The Bachelor' finale, with an insider confirming that she has returned it to ABC.

Sources claim that the couple's long-distance relationship was just too hard to continue, with a source telling 'Us,' "It's completely over now."

Maynard is reported to have initiated the breakup, which happened about two weeks ago after she visited Womack's home in Austin, Texas, in a last-ditch attempt to save their relationship.
