Semi-important announcement

Hi all, I hate to do this after committing to a season, but I’m going to have to take a break from recapping the US Bachelorette. I just started a new job, (actually two if you count a beta reading gig I picked up on the side) and I’m struggling to manage everything around my […]


Meatheads and Zero Chance Flavour

Wow – JoJo is all about the kissing if tonight’s preview is anything to go by! Surely some of that must be from future episodes. Not that I think it’s a bad thing. Isn’t the best part of being the Bachelor or Bachelorette the fact you’re allowed to kiss as many people as you want […]

The Bachelorette Season 12 Episode 1

… and we’re back!

Ah. It’s like stepping into a warm bubble bath with a glass of champagne. Another season of The Bachelorette has begun, and I’m settling into the now VERY familiar routine of watching one lucky lady’s journey to find love. Of course we couldn’t start without rehashing JoJo’s almost win from Ben’s season. I still find […]

The Bachelorette


This season of The Bachelorette (US) somehow snuck up on me without warning! I was checking the TV guide yesterday and saw it starts tomorrow! I’m pretty happy JoJo has been chosen, and I’m going to be in double celebration mode because my new book comes out too! (I swear I didn’t time it that way!) So […]

Bachelor Australia Ritchie

Richie is the new Aussie Bachelor!

Eek! Is everyone as excited as I am that Richie is our new Aussie Bachelor? This year’s series hadn’t even crossed my mind (probably because the US one hasn’t finished yet) until I saw Richie’s photo on Facebook this morning. I was actually a bit surprised by how happy this news made me. As long as […]


Bachelor Ben!

All of my wishes have come true! Finally, we are getting the latest US Bachelor on our screens here in Oz mere hours after it airs there! It begins tonight at 8.30 on Channel 9Life, and I’m pretty excited! I went back and forth on whether to recap this season – and have finally decided […]


The most obvious ending in Bachelorette history

There are a few things I never knew until I started watching the Bachelor and Bachelorette. There is a big difference between falling in love and actually being in love. If you say someone is perfect, you normally end up choosing someone else. If you’re trying to decide between two potential partners and with the […]


Semi Final Fever

Wow. Can you believe we’re up to the second last episode of the season already? I read that they weren’t sure how successful an Aussie Bachelorette series would be, which is why they only organised a five week ‘journey’ for Sam. Part of me wants to have a rant about the sexist implication of it […]


Happy Hometowns

That’s more like it! This episode had way more stuff in it! Except they did start with some repeated footage of Sam walking on the beach, so I’m not going to let the producers completely off the hook. The first original scene of the episode begins with Michael in Brisbane (go Brisbane!). Michael awaits Sam’s arrival […]


My Kitchen Bachelor

I think I’m going to be scraping the bottom of the barrel to find enough material to write about for this recap. Tonight’s episode was pleasant enough, but not much really happened. We open with a bit of friendly sparring. Actual sparring. The guys are all in their workout gear, and wait! Are those Richie’s […]
