When The Bachelorette premiered last week, there was a little something missing. Thanks to a 90-minute time frame, the show had to cut its usual “Meet the Guys” videos, which meant viewers had to pick their favorite suitors based on nothing more than a limo arrival and a cocktail party.
But now, the guys’ introductions are available online, so before you head into tonight’s episode, you can properly educate yourself on a few of the men, their jobs, their passions, and how very excited they are that Andi is the Bachelorette. And perhaps most importantly, you can find out why Marquel made Andi eat cookies last week.
Watch a few of the best introductions below, and find the rest of them here:
She gave herself the nickname Chaos Kass, and while self-appointed nicknames are usually a no-no, Kass McQuillen definitely earned it — riling up pretty much any and every contestant that crossed her path during Survivor: Cagayan. But she had (the almost very) last laugh, making it to the final three, before being shockingly voted out by Woo. But lest you think Kass has mellowed out now that the cameras are shut off, just check out our exit interview, in which she has strong words for people both in and out of the game that want to judge her. (Also make sure to read our interview with winner Tony Vlachos as well as runner-up Woo Hwang and fan favorite Spencer Bledsoe. There’s also our finale/reunion Q&A with Jeff Probst. Plus, get intel on NEXT season.) READ FULL STORY
Jeff Probst told him before the game of Survivor Cagayan even started that he had zero percent chance of winning (much like Spencer would then tell Kass later), but Spencer Beldsoe made it all the way to the final episode, having his torch snuffed at the final four. Would he have kept his word to bring Tony to the final 2 had Tony saved him? How does he think he would have done in that match-up? And why did he choose to address the jury at the final Tribal Council? The fan favorite reveals all and has no problem pointing out all the shortcomings in his own game. (Also make sure to read our interview with winner Tony Vlachos as well as runner-up Woo Hwang and the controversial Kass McQuillen in addition to our finale/reunion Q&A with Jeff Probst. Plus, get intel on NEXT season.)
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, have you read the letter the Probst gave you at the reunion last night apologizing for saying you had no shot?
SPENCER BLEDSOE: You know what? People are going to think I’m crazy. I actually haven’t. It’s still sealed. Last night I just got whisked away and did a lot of interviews. I feel like if I open up, then there’s no going back. So I almost want to keep it for posterity’s sake then just have it. READ FULL STORY
He said he would be the stupidest Survivor ever to take Tony to the end with him. And then that is exactly what he did. So what exactly was Woo Hwang thinking? And if he could go back in time, would he make the same mistake all over again, especially after learning at the reunion that he would have won unanimously over Kass had he brought her instead? We spoke to the man himself in the wake of his second place finish on Survivor: Cagayan and while Woo may not have had the best handle on this game and the how the jury would react to the move, he seems to have a pretty great handle on life in general.

He played the game of Survivor: Cagayan at a blistering pace that we’ve never seen before, making moves upon moves, even when there were seemingly no moves to even make. In the end, Tony Vlachos’ dedication won him the check for a million dollars and the title of Sole Survivor, but only after Woo made the shocking decision to bring him — instead of the easily beatable Kass — to the finals. We talked to the winner to get his take on Woo’s decision, Trish’s epic takedown at the final Tribal Council, and what he considers his best move of the game.

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’ Also make sure to read Probst giving exclusive intel on the NEXT season of ‘Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water.’
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tony is probably the most aggressive winner we’ve ever seen. So where does he rank for you in the pantheon of Survivor champs?
JEFF PROBST: Tony is one of the most electrifying players/characters we’ve ever had. You can’t anticipate what he’s going to do and then when he does it you are often stunned at the manner in which he did it. I’m happy he won. I like seeing players rewarded for playing hard. I really do believe Survivor is at it’s best when played by people who go for broke. I also really appreciated the jury rewarding him with the money. That was a key ingredient. They could have been bitter and voted “against” Tony but instead they voted “for” Tony despite their bitterness. READ FULL STORY
Survivor will take some of the lessons learned from the success of its past two seasons and combine them for its next installment, Survivor: San Juan del Sur — Blood vs. Water, which will be filmed in Nicaragua and premiere on CBS in September. Not only do we have the brand new logo for season 29 for you above, but host Jeff Probst shared some early intel with EW on what to expect. READ FULL STORY
Fans of The Bachelorette have now seen how the show decided to handle the tragic death of 31-year-old contestant Eric Hill, who fought for Andi Dorfman’s heart before dying of injuries sustained in a paragliding accident. The accident occurred in April 2014, after Hill had already left the show, but figuring out how to honor Hill’s time with Dorfman was something the show did not take lightly.
And as viewers saw in the season premiere, Hill’s passing was addressed immediately, with a quick dedication, before the show kicked off, still featuring Hill as one of the 25 men competing for Dorfman’s heart. READ FULL STORY
'The Bachelorette': Chris Harrison compares Andi's season to Juan Pablo's, teases 'so many guys falling for her'
Chris Harrison is confident that Andi Dorfman will win over the hearts of pretty much everyone. “If you weren’t before, I think you’ll quickly become an Andi fan,” Harrison said. And starting tonight, that theory will be put to the test when Andi — the girl who told Juan Pablo it wasn’t “OK” — embarks on her journey to find love.
We caught up with Harrison to talk about how Andi has approached the experience and what viewers can expect from the lawyer who can’t dance:
Those ladies are in a real hurry to walk down the aisle next to a (phony) royal.
Fox is moving the premiere of fake-out dating competition I Wanna Marry “Harry” to May 20 at 9 p.m., in the plum spot behind the first night of American Idol‘s finale. The show had been slated to premiere May 27, following the timeslot debut of the celebrity game show Riot.
I Wanna Marry “Harry” follows 12 American woman with dreams of becoming a modern-day princess. They are flown to London to vie for the love of the world’s most eligible bachelor, a man they’re led to believe is Prince Harry. But in a Joe Millionaire twist, the guy they all want to make “the one” is actually nothing more than a sort-of lookalike.

Each week, host Jeff Probst will answer a few questions about the latest episode of ‘Survivor: Cagayan.’
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: During the immunity challenge you said, “Tony with a huge time advantage. The question is, does he know how to do slide puzzles?” I’m going to go out on a limb and say the answer to that question is a big fat no. These challenge puzzles usually take a very long time to solve so you often have to edit down what we see on the show due to time, so give us your on-the-scene take on just how quickly Spencer got this done, and just how lost Tony was.
JEFF PROBST: The lead Tony had going into the puzzle was pretty significant, but based on past performance I knew there was some question as to how long it would take him to finish. When Spencer bounded up the ladder to start on the puzzle I didn’t necessarily think he could win. I was just happy that it was going to be a better ending because now we had two people doing the puzzle. What was apparent right away was their very different styles. Tony was just slamming pieces back and forth without any clear direction and Spencer was literally just standing there studying it. So I focused my attention back on Tony, thinking Spencer would be a while — and when I turned around to check on him he was almost finished. I didn’t actually see what he did to get there. I turned around, saw he was close, and then — WHAM! It was over. Had there been more players for me to check in on. I might have missed the entire thing. It really was that fast. READ FULL STORY
Now that American Idol has been renewed for a 14th season — albeit slightly adjusted — fans want to know what next year’s judges’ panel is going to look like. Well for now, we can at least tell you it will have a bit of a crooner edge.
Harry Connick Jr. officially confirmed his return to the show during a visit to Live! With Kelly and Michael Wednesday. When asked about his status for next season, Connick replied, “I’ll be back.”
Connick’s return is not a shocking development for most fans, as all judges are anticipated to reprise their roles, but fans can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing that his scruff will once again be a part of their weekly television routine.
