'The Bachelor': Chris Harrison talks Juan Pablo's firsts

Spoiler alert! With Juan Pablo’s season of The Bachelor officially under way, we grilled host Chris Harrison for a few teases of what’s to come. Here’s what we got out of him:

• Every season has a first, so what’s Juan Pablo’s? A hint: “It’s more to do with Juan Pablo and the fact that he is not a drama guy,” Harrison says. You’ll see already in episode 2, when some of the girls start partying, he’s like, ‘That’s not me. If you’re here for that, you need to go away.’ He doesn’t like the drama, and when drama’s thrown in his face, he kinda pushes back, and he kinda has a little bit of attitude about it. That can even turn some of the girls off. You see from the first episode, with Sharleen — that’s the first time we’ve had a first impression rose almost turned down. She thought, I’m not really feeling thunder underneath my feet, and I’m not really seein’ fireworks — I thought there’d be more. So we kinda lift the veil a little bit that there’s more to a guy than abs and a cute accent. There better be more depth. These women deserve that. This is a really strong group, and so they’re as demanding as he is.” READ FULL STORY

Watch 'The Bachelor' supertease: 'Juan Pablo, I hope he dies' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO


The Bachelor returns Jan. 5, but the drama of Juan Pablo’s journey for love starts now with the release of the season’s supertease. Watch our exclusive first look below. It’s all smiles, sunsets, and shirtlessness — for the first 70 seconds. Then the switch you’ve been waiting for happens: It’s tears, tequila (“Give me three shots of Patrón, and I’ll be topless”), and one of the women sitting on the floor of a bathroom wishing Juan Pablo were dead.

If the cryptic voiceovers are to be believed, Juan Pablo is “doing nothing like anything that has ever been done” and “no one has ever dealt with this before.” But as he says, “I’d definitely rather end up with nobody than [have] my daughter not be proud of her dad.” He even walks out of a confessional.  READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelor' First Look: Meet Juan Pablo's lucky ladies -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

We’re officially less than a month away from what ABC has dubbed “Juan-uary.” But just in case you can’t wait that long to watch Juan Pablo Galavis, the sexy single father from Desiree’s season of The Bachelorette, begin his search for love, we’ve got an exclusive first look at the (very) lucky ladies who will be arriving in limos and fighting for a spot in Juan Pablo’s Spanish-speaking heart.

ABC announces three 'Bachelor' specials to kick off in 'Juan-uary' -- EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' couple sets wedding date

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici announced their wedding date on Good Morning America on Monday. The pair picked Jan. 26, 2014 as the day they will walk down the aisle… on live television. The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine’s Wedding will air live on ABC from 8 to 10 p.m.

The Bachelor is such a cool experience because people at home feel like they know us and they’re invested in our relationship,” Lowe, who proposed earlier this year in the March finale of the show, said on GMA. “We have no problem sharing the actual wedding with everyone who has been with us so far.”

InsideTV Podcast: Mike Fleiss reveals he wants to bring 'Bachelor Pad' back in 2014

While Desiree is spending this summer avoiding bad white boy rapping and suitors obsessed with hashtags and high fives on The Bachelorette, fans of the franchise have been mourning the loss of the guiltiest of guilty pleasures, Bachelor Pad, which will not be returning to ABC’s schedule this August, where it has resided for the past three years.

But Bachelor/Bachelorette exec producer Mike Fleiss dropped a bombshell on Jessica Shaw and me when he called in to chat on Entertainment Weekly’s new SiriusXM channel 105. “I love Bachelor Pad,” said Fleiss. “I thought it might be good to give it a break for a little while — let the fans starve for it a little bit so that next summer when it comes back…” WAIT, WHAT?!? Bachelor Pad is coming back? “I have a good feeling it will be back next summer,” revealed Fleiss. “I really wanted to give it a break because I did not feel like we had enough superstars to populate the pad.” By “populate” we’re pretty sure he means spread sexually transmitted diseases, but there’s no need to get into technicalities. The point is, plenty of bimbos and himbos could be back in work in 2014! Mike Fleiss: job creator!

To hear Fleiss talk about the return of Bachelor Pad, the biggest differences between The Bachelor and Bachelorette, the horrific “Right Reasons” rap from last week, and all the drama set to go down on Monday night with the arrival of one of the suitor’s girlfriends, then click on the audio player below for more.

ABC plans 'Bachelor' bloopers special for May -- EXCLUSIVE


Fantastic news, rose lovers! Though ABC spat upon our hopes and dreams by not renewing Bachelor Pad for a fourth season, the network is about to announce a small peace offering to Bachelor Nation: a bloopers special! Hosted by Chris Harrison, the one-hour special called The Bachelor’s Funniest Moments (airing May 21 at 8 p.m.) will feature goofs, gaffes and general hilarity spanning all 17 seasons of The Bachelor and 8 season of The Bachelorette. As fans know, Bachelor bloopers — usually only seen during the Women Tell All specials — can be extremely illuminating, and often reveal a hidden layer of actual personality underneath the Bachelor’s Ken-doll facade. (I’m looking at you, Brad Womack.) Also, it’s just fun to watch contestants like Tierra almost get decapitated by a boom mic and see Chris Harrison swear a blue streak, as he did in the most recent Bachelor blooper reel.

'Bachelor' finale ratings rise


ABC’s The Bachelor closed its season with a finale that posted ratings gains over last year. The two-hour episode was up 14 percent among adults 18-49 compared to last season’s finale, and marked the show’s highest-rated episode of the season. The gain isn’t surprising considering The Bachelor‘s whole 17th season run was stronger than last year’s edition. The network also points out that this season resulted in quadruple the number of tweets.

The After the Final Rose special once again showcased The Bachelor‘s unique pattern of generating a bigger rating for its post-finale special than for the actual finale. The special was up 15 percent from last year.

ABC also announced that former Bachelor Sean Lowe has been added to the upcoming edition of Dancing With the Stars, and that Bach fan favorite Desiree Hartsock will be this summer’s Bachelorette. Full finale recap here.

Elsewhere: Fox’s The Following dipped after weeks of steadiness, probably due to having a Bones repeat. CBS’ Rules of Engagement hit a season low. NBCs The Biggest Loser hit a low.


Sean Lowe, shirtless wonder and former 'Bachelor,' is on 'Dancing With the Stars'

It’s official! As announced on today’s Good Morning America, Sean Lowe will compete with professional partner Peta Murgatroyd on season 16 of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. The 28-year-old insurance agent feels most comfortable when he is shirtless, so this is perfect. On last night’s season finale of The Bachelor, Sean was shown pondering the paso doble (along with maybe a thought or two about Lindsay versus Catherine) in his favorite outfit: just a towel.

“I’ll be shocked if Sean makes it through one episode with his shirt on,” Chris Harrison told EW.

Dancing With the Stars premieres Monday, March 18 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Sean Lowe has a big decision ahead of him on tonight’s season finale of The Bachelor. Should he choose Lindsay Yenter or Catherine Giudici? EW Bachelor expert Kristen Baldwin joins Jessica Shaw and me on the latest edition of the InsideTV Podcast to offer her opinion as well as weigh in on the season as a whole. But Kristen is the mere appetizer, because then we welcome in super-Bachelor fan Nanny, the 83-year-old grandmother of EW’s Breia Brissey.

Although we might have to start calling her Naughty Nanny after hearing the octogenarian weigh in with her hot and heavy feelings about Sean. But as much as Nanny loves Sean, she’s not crazy about the two remaining “ladies” he’s left choosing from. Find out which woman Nanny wanted to go all the way — in every sense of the phrase. [WARNING: There is also plenty of disturbing chatter involving Nanny’s Chippendales calendar and a certain Mr. January.] It is a Bachelor finale preview chat for the ages!

Then, we take a trip to the island to check in on the two latest losers from Survivor: Caramoan. The medically evacuated Shamar Thomas calls in to talk about the visit from Jeff Probst we did not see, while also reveling the other injury that sent him to the hospital, and his feelings about what his tribe had to say about him behind his back. And then we hear from Laura Alexander, who tries her best to convince us that she actually used to be on a swim team. HA! (The Survivor chat and interviews start at 24:00.) READ FULL STORY
