Ummmm, Dallas, we’ve got an issue. For these of you who don't know, the Dallas-Ft Price space is having our worst winter storm in in all probability 10 years. I've been right here 14 half years myself and the one time I bear in mind something worse than this was the week of the Steelers / Packers Tremendous Bowl held right here. That was a catastrophe. We positively have our chilly winters. And February is at all times our coldest month. We’ll dive into the 20s and typically adolescence. And perhaps we’ve got a couple of snow days a yr. However it very not often stays cool sufficient for the snow to stay round for lengthy. That isn’t what is going on now. Sunday it rained about four inches, and we're not imagined to get out of 20 till Thursday, with extra snow to come back. We're in our 50s for the weekend, however we've positively held out a couple of days longer than this. And since everybody within the metropolis has the warmth on, effectively, steady blackouts are one factor. My home had a minimum of eight energy outages all day yesterday, and I by no means had energy for greater than an hour at a time. And on prime of that my heater broke so my home was an ice field at 50 levels many of the day. Yeah, it's not the funniest time, I'm telling you. It’s at the moment zero levels as I write this.
So what does that imply for right now? Nicely, to start out with, I watched about 20 minutes of the present final night time. I learn what occurred, and sure, Abigail ended up being despatched house in eighth place, not fifth as I reported. Once more, one thing I used to be instructed a spoiler on, however not the precise particulars, which was that Abigail made it to the episode earlier than the house cities and simply missed one. It's bizarre that she received the primary impression however by no means received a 1 on 1 date. That positively by no means occurred that I can bear in mind and I virtually really feel like now Matt offers her that nearly felt like a pity rose. He frequently instructed her all through the season that he was fascinated with her. They even had their factor the place they had been going to level out to one another that they had been pondering of one another. However sorry, if Abigail didn't get 1v1, meaning Matt by no means took her critically. BC growers know precisely who you have an interest in always. So she didn't even have time for a 1v1, and Serena P received two? Yeah it sucks for her, however Matt messed it up. It actually doesn't make sense until they actually had been taking part in the condolence card for her to result in Bachelorette.
Every thing on this franchise has been down since final week. What I reported to you after the WTA taping 2 weeks in the past, once I reviewed it this weekend, they instructed me the identical factor: Katie was going to be the "bachelorette occasion." Now, I don't see that taking place. Hell, we don't even know if there might be a "Bachelorette" season. Perhaps they are going to delay it past the BIP. There are such a lot of questions proper now, and sadly, I do know everybody needs solutions, however we don't have all of them proper now. I prefer it:
-When will that announcement be made?
-Is manufacturing delayed? (Heard it was delayed every week)
-The place are they filming it?
-Will Chris Harrison be the host?
We'll contact on the Chris facet of this in a second. However I don't suppose anybody actually is aware of at this level what the hell is occurring. We simply don't know. Truthfully, I wouldn't be stunned if the season was delayed a bit. It's in all probability unlikely, however should you movie, the entire facet of who’s presenting it turns into one massive query. And I feel ABC should reply shortly. If "Bachelorette" movies as scheduled, filming would start in a couple of month. It might look like a very long time, however that's if all the pieces was going effectively within the franchise. What just isn’t. Completely.
This franchise is at a serious crossroads proper now, one thing not like something you've seen earlier than. His personal contestants insurgent in opposition to the powers left after 18 years. I imply, I by no means thought the day would come when this could come true, however we’re right here. And the plenty outdoors the franchise are starting to make their voices heard. IG accounts like @BachDiversity are campaigning for a franchise overview and admittedly they’re proper. Is the time. It isn’t essential to cancel this system, however there have to be some main modifications in operations and the way they’re carried out. As a result of to maintain doing what they’re doing is popping off the viewers. Simply test social media. This present is breaking down. And never simply due to Chris's stuff. That's simply the start line that received all the pieces going. Chris saying what he did in that interview with Rachel final week did nothing greater than expose the underlying issues that this present has had for years, however most weren’t keen to speak about. Now they’re. And ABC's reply is what individuals are actually ready for.
And proper now, we don’t know what the fucking ABC is doing. They’re in full encryption mode. However right here is the query. They HAVE to say one thing. What actually falls on the shoulders of 1 man: Robert Mills. Chris clearly can't communicate on the present or community, as a result of the final time he did, he shoved a full-size boot into his mouth. Fleiss? Please. That man has nothing to do with the each day operations of the present. Mills is the one spokesperson for this system left and folks need solutions. He's going to must be the sort that not solely solutions for what the plan is shifting ahead, but additionally what they're doing to mainly flip the complete present into a spot the place everybody doesn't suppose he's deaf, racist, and doesn't decrease contestants who’re BIPOC. . They take a season off and do a full reboot of the present? Are they persevering with on to "Bachelorette" in a month, with a brand new host and all, and attempting to make things better on the fly? Your guess is pretty much as good as mine, however I’d say that these subsequent few weeks will in all probability be a very powerful weeks within the historical past of this present. They want an government to come back out publicly and provides an in depth rationalization of HOW they’re going to change sooner or later. As a result of as @Bachelordata confirmed us final week, casting essentially the most various forged in historical past doesn't imply shit while you don't present them.
