Spotted: A pair of the cutest couple in The Bachelor Nation. I turned on the streets of Back Bay near Back Bay Station and low-and-behold it was Carly and Evan Bass! They were in town for Whitney Bischoff’s wedding in Cape Cod. And a couple of the nicest people I’ve ever blindsided and attacked on the sidewalks of Boston. Thanks for agreeing to take this selfie, confirming it wasn’t weird (definitely weird), and filling my bachelor soul. Congrats you two, on all of your things. And I hope this selfie attack incident does not taint your Boston experience. Try the chowdah. For reals.
I’m not messing with you. This is a real thing. This is weird, right? Kind of amazing, but super weird. Five previous bachelor rejects are coming to Boston for a “meet the bachelors” affair. Not a lot of detail was given on the site. Like do people go? Do they listen to them talk about themselves? Why is it called Fantasy Weekend? Why is it upwards of $67? Do we get to keep them? I have a lot of important, pertinent questions. (And obviously I’m going.)

I would provide you more information, but very limited details have been published around this, so I shall just provide you with my completely unfactual suppositions behind it. I just can’t quite understand why this is a thing nor the reasoning behind this panel of men. Are these the only ones that would agree to it? Dylan lives in Boston so that’s likely the reason behind his addition to the playbill. Chris Soules most definitely broke up with Whitney very shortly after his Dancing with the Stars stint. Benzi is most likely there to promote his personal training and the fitness company he works for in San Jose. (Sidenote: Please check out these fitness competition photos compiled by US Magazine from Benzi’s Instagram account.) Come to think of it, that could also apply to personal trainer Cody, ready to promote his personal brand. I’m stumped as to why Jared is coming along for the ride. The producers must have convinced him, as some behind-the-scenes footage from Bachelor in Paradise indicated the production crew team seemed to really enjoy Jared’s company. Did he dump Ashley I…again? I don’t know why they’re calling it “Bachelor Fantasy Weekend” when none of these leading men would be my ultimate fantasy bachelor panel. Ben might be the only one that would make it to my laminated list of five men card. Maybe Cody. #ThatSmileTho
Is anyone going to this?? I need to know. Is this a thing? What are they going to do there? But really, do we get to keep them? Book those plane tickets now. Work on your marriage proposals. I’m sure this one will sell out. Not likely.
It’s a Valentine’s Day special! There’s always talk aflutter about how unlikely it is for people to find love on The Bachelor. While the odds are slim to none, love does happen more often than you might think. Here is a short list of Bachelor/ettes that have found love, marriage, and babies on and off the show.
JP and Ashley
My favorite couple, JP Rosenbaum and Ashley Hebert, are continuing to rock life with a new son. They welcomed a new addition to their family, Fordham Rhys Rosenbaum, on September 30, 2014 and since that day her Instagram account has been sprinkled, I’m sorry, covered, with the new baby. JP tweeted an adorable accusation that Ashley was hogging time with the little tyke. Ashley finished dental school and the couple, along with their adorable dog, Boo, moved from New Jersey to Miami.
Jillian Harris, Season 5 of The Bachelorette, interior designer, blogger, and current host of Love it or List it, Vancouver, is happily dating former professional snowboarder, Justin Pasutto. Her Instagram is covered with photos of them enjoying time by the lake. Justin is very supportive of Jillian’s endeavors. They are still enjoying time dating, but I have a sneaking suspicion they may be the next couple to put a ring on it. POPSUGAR did an exclusive interview with Jillian on her relationship with the self-proclaimed scrubcaptain and this is what they had to say.
