Are you young and handsome? Are you suave and debonair almost too a fault? Do you possess the phenomenal ability to balance 25 to 30 girlfriends at once? Then you just might have what it takes to be next season’s bachelor.

ABC’s The Bachelor is holding auditions in Dallas this Wednesday, June 13 to find a new leading man. If you think you have what it takes to be the bachelor or the girl of his dreams, come to 3030 Olive Street #101 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. this Wednesday. Bring a photo ID and be at least 21 and you might just have a shot at true love.

Part II: Wes Hayden

Fake it till you make it, dude

The big boy Wes Hayden abruptly canceled his appearance tonight at La Grange.

As The Bachelor Pad premieres this Monday, August 9, I’m sure Wes had better things to do in Hollywood.  Not sure why he thinks he’s going to improve his reputation by starring on that show, but maybe that’s not what he’s after.

I, personally, feel a combination of disappointment and relief.  I have pictured myself with my flip camera approaching said boy-man, shaking his hand, saying something clever like “I hate you” and abruptly turning away.  Now, I’m left to merely dream about an encounter with this abomination from Austin.

Must invest in closed-toed shoes.

If it’s Saturday afternoon, and an inferno-worthy 112 degrees, where am I? Probably at Sigel’s, stocking up on Skinnygirl margaritas to drink by the pool. It’s entirely too hot outside, and water submergence is the best (read: only) alternative to melting like Alex Mack when she’s late to class.

My friend and I were browsing the liquid maze when I heard someone walking behind me.

“Tanner P just walked in.” Which was followed by a prompt, “No he didn’t. Wait yes he did…that’s him!” I turned back around, instinctively looked down at my toes, and tried to hide them under a shelf of Tom Collins mix.

Ok, so I know it’s been a couple of seasons since he infamously massaged Jillian’s feet on national TV, but it’s still kind of cool that we have a pseudo-celeb roaming the streets of Dallas. We just happened to check-out at the same time; I saw him climb into his unnecessarily large SUV, and I may or may not have had the quick wit to memorize part of his license plate number…

So what did we, as realty TV junkies, do? Follow him, duh. (Really, what did you expect?) I promise it’s not as creepy as it sounds, we were just curious about the proximity of his toes to ours.

Remind me to make a pedicure appointment.

Bachelor Bust – AGAIN – Dallas’ Jake Pavelka splits from Vienna Girardi

Posted by    |    June 24th, 2010 at 3:50 am

Being an avid Bachelor fan, it’s safe to say I — and okay, the rest of the viewers — knew Jake and Vienna’s relationship was doomed before she gurgled “Yes.”  For those unaware of the show, earlier this year, Jake Pavelka, Dallas native and sexy pilot, chose to propose to his antithesis on the show, the vampy, bug-eyed, oh-so-sleazy Vienna Girardi.  He chose Vienna over the precious and innocent Tenley, and in that moment we viewers collectively SCREAMED at the television in horror.  We knew he had made the mistake of a lifetime.

Fast forward maybe 3 months since his fateful choice and here we are: Jake has regained his senses and deserted his “precious” fiancee.  So, Jake, on behalf of all Dallas women, let me salute you for at last seeing what everyone else has seen since January 4 when Episode 1 of your season swept us away.  Alas, we shall never forget “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love.”

Oh, one last thing, there’s a line of single Texas women waiting patiently for you! Don’t get too dirty in Hollywood.  We’ll still be here when you return alone to the Lone Star State.
