Grace Palmieri Arizona Republic Published 2:55 p.m. UTC Aug 7, 2018 Wait, Becca Kufrin knows she can go back and pick the other person, right? That’s a thing now. (Thanks, Arie.) For those who missed Monday night’s “most emotional season finale ever” of "The Bachelorette," Garrett Yrigoyen won. And honestly, there were a few red flags, which should’ve steered Becca away from him and toward the clear right choice: Blake Horstmann. Number one on that list would be when Garrett pulled this line during his final on-screen date with Becca: “People say you get butterflies, but butterflies are small — you give me eagles, in my chest.” Um, that sounds uncomfortable? Not to mention Garrett showed up on the first night in a mini-van — because nothing says romantic like kids. You might remember Garrett from headlines earlier this season when it came out that he "liked" questionable Instagram posts deemed racist, … [Read more...] about ‘The Bachelorette’ finale: Who did Becca choose?

UnReal, the underrated Lifetime drama that hyperbolizes life on set at Everlasting, a Bachelor-type dating show, has moved to Hulu for its last season. You can start binging...now, because producers just surprise dropped that shit like it’s a Beyoncé album. According to IndieWire, UnReal is now being branded as a Hulu Original Series (which makes sense, considering you can stream the first three seasons of the show on the platform, exclusively). This fourth season is, in fact, the final season of the show, and it’s eight episodes long. In the season, Rachel (Shiri Appleby) and her mentor/BFF/boss Quinn (Constance Zimmer) return to Everlasting for an “all-stars” type show and I really hope they go all-out Bachelor in Paradise-style with it. Craig Erwich, the senior VP of content at Hulu, said in a statement, “UnReal has captivated audiences on Hulu since season one, so when this opportunity came to us, we knew we couldn’t miss out.” Happy … [Read more...] about The Fourth and Final Season of UnReal Is Available on Hulu at This Very Moment
Becca Smouse Arizona Republic Published 6:58 p.m. UTC Jun 18, 2018 PHOENIX — For a show that feeds on exposing private affairs and personal heartbreak, the application process for ABC's "The Bachelor" doesn't begin to scratch the surface. Phoenix, along with 15 other cities, was chosen as a casting call site for season 23 of the hit reality-TV dating show. I volunteered to brave the high heels and nervous laughs to see what deep, personal secrets the show would be fishing for. As a full disclaimer: I’m a fan of the show. I closely watched the last season, which featured "Bachelor" Arie Luyendyk Jr., from Scottsdale, Arizona. Not only is he probably the most-hated man in franchise history, but he gave a dismal showing of his hometown on America’s TV screens every Monday night. Scottsdale turned into a place to go bowling and reminisce on the old days.
