"Onto the cocktail party----> Ali smoozes with the boys and seems to drink a lot of wine. Good girl Ali. Frank seems like an Ali Stalker (aka he likes her too much and will probably be crying in the limo soon). Too bad he looks so much like cutie Reid Rosenthal...Dude, Kirk, oh Kirk. Making a scrapbook for a girl is a little bit...gay....No offence. I hope it's not his childhood scrapbook. I don't want to see photos of his first dirty diaper. Kasey seems so sweet and seems like his voice is a bit strange. Does he have a hearing aid? Hunter makes some sweet music - does he remind anyone else of Wes (gulp!). I found Jason a bit mean, making fun of the other guys. Doesn't show a good character. Shooter, please don't tell a girl your gross story!!! That's not a good move to talk about your racing sperm count. Ali, if anything develops, watch your eyes! I'm liking Craig M -seems pretty real and normal and Roberto does the salsa. Maybe I'm wrong but she seems to like Roberto. I don't see the connection though. Chris I is so sweet and loved it when Ali touched his leg. That's a good sign. Craig R is little bit of a tattle tail- no one likes that, it's not fourth grade. The first impression rose goes to.....Roberto!!" Read the rest of the blog post here!!
Looks like it's going to be a drama-filled season of The Bachelorette. Bachelorette spoilers include that someone has a girlfriend and someone wants to leave the show and Ali. Some preview photos from The Bachelorette via FansofRealityTV.com!
Kyle Higgins says ""I felt like he was lying to Ali all the time. When I was around him he was just completely different than when he was next to Ali because I saw him talking to Ali a few times when I was in the house. The things he would say to her, it was almost like you were sitting next to one of your best buddys who was hitting on a girl -- you could just tell he's telling lies."

Kimberly Kerekes "I agreed to keep dating him because he told me it was to launch his career and it had nothing to do with actually falling in love..”More here.
Ali says "What a night! Let me first say that this was the most terrifying and exciting night of my life. I’m sure it is so obvious to all of you that I was unbelievably nervous. Throughout the night I said things that didn’t even make sense.
To Chris L: “Have a good night!” Oh my. Poor guy. It’s like I was saying, “Thanks for coming! See you at the rose ceremony.” To Jesse: “You’re a what man?” I think he told me his was a “peculiar man” about four times before I actually heard him. To Roberto, when he told me his name: “You’re going to have to help me with that one.” Really? I couldn’t pronounce Roberto? Pull it together, girl! To Frank: “Paris is amazing. I’ve never been.” How would I know it was amazing if I’ve never been?
The first guy I met was Chris H. How adorable is he?! I remember thinking, “If 24 more guys like Chris H. get out of these limos, then there is absolutely no way I will be able to let anyone go tonight.” Be careful what you wish for because I met 24 more amazing men that night. Kyle reeled me in, Jonathan N. brought a little sunshine into my life and John C. proposed! I can’t believe all the things they did to get my attention. All I can say is: It worked." FULL BLOG HERE.
From the Ali Fedotowsky Blog
Wow. Drama, drama, drama. Ali has quit her job at Facebook and ready for love (of course). The beginning starts very Baywatch-like with Ali running through water looking like a sexy life guard. Watch out Pamela Anderson. You may have competition on Dancing with the Stars! Now we meet the Bachelor hopefuls, Jay the Lawyor who seems like a sweet guy; shirtless Craig from Toronto who seems like a bit of a player; cutie Kyle, the lonely hunter and bear-killer who needs a woman (he hangs around animals more than women though); Wrestler "Rated R" Justin is a little scary at first but could have potential as a grandma's boy (he gets lots of air time with his family which could mean something); Biker Philip from Chicago who lost his brother. Seems sweet; Weatherman Jonathan is pretty funny. His secret weapon is his humor (according to him, not me). Looks a bit like Reid Rosenthal, which is a really good thing!; Divorcee Ty from Texas loves his doggie and wants a doggie mama; Cutie and math teacher Chris, lost his mom and seems very sweet (lots of air time..hmmm); Roberto, Tyler, Derrick, Steve, Frank don't get a lot of air time. That is usually pretty telling... READ THE REST HERE!
Ali Fedotowsky has quit her job to meet her husband. Sounds like a good plan.

- "For any Bachelor/Bachelorette fan, the first episode can be painfully boring -- as random suitors offer ridiculous interviews and parlor tricks to make a first impression." read about it @here
"Time for The Bachelorette to start again, many rose ceremonies, lots of tears in the limo and Chris Harrison saying his famous lines like "This is going to be the MOST dramatic season in Bachelorette history!" and "Ali, it's the final rose tonight." Man, I wish I could be a writer on the show. It would be so easy! All I would have to do is write phrases like "I'm wearing my heart on my sleeve" and "I feel a connection with you, Ali." from the Ali Fedotowsky Blog

Chris Harrison blogs about The Bachelorette: Episode 1 at EW.com
According to Chris Harrison "he first episode is always hard to blog about because you’re just getting to know everybody. I do, however, love to break down the different styles the guys use to make a first impression. First off, there are way too many guys named Chris this season. I promise you, I will see to it this will not happen again. Then we have Frank, who is the first bachelor or bachelorette to ever come out of the top of the limo. Kyle, who went home, went with the fishhook maneuver — a classic move that I normally would rip apart, but you know what, it played okay. Craig M., who will undo all the goodwill Jillian created for Canada on our show, came out with a knock on Vienna. I’ve got to stick up for my friend Vienna and say, “Not a cool move, buddy.” Kirk created a paper rose for Ali."

THE BACHELORETTE: LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WEIRD PLACES!
We have a love/hate relationship with Reality TV Blogger and Bachelorette Spoiler, Reality Steve. In most cases, Reality Steve has been correct in his predictions and usually knows the outcome of the show before it even airs! During Jason Mesnick's season, Reality Steve, told us that Jason would dump Melissa Rycroft on air because he wanted to be with Molly Malaney..
Then, Reality Steve had some inside information about Jake Pavelka's final choice. Viewers knew in advance that Jake would choose fan not-so-favorite Vienna Girardi over sweetheart Tenley Molzahn. Reality Steve has claimed that he is an unpaid blogger who does not work for ABC. Mike Fleiss of ABC also said during Jake's season that "they have fired the person on staff who has leaked the information." Our question is, if they fired the staff member who might have known Reality Steve, how did he get the information already for Ali Fedotowsky's season?
You decide. Here are a short list of staff members who might be working on the show. Any connection to Reality Steve?

from the ABC bachelorette press release
Ali Fedotowsky, the beautiful, energetic and charismatic career-oriented woman from San Francisco is back. She has re-prioritized her life - and now is ready to find her soul mate. Ali will have her own opportunity to find true love, as the sixth edition of "The Bachelorette," the female version of ABC's hit romance reality series, premieres MONDAY, MAY 24 (9:02-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
Ali, 25, has been a fan favorite from the moment she stepped out of the limo to meet Jake Pavelka on the last season of "The Bachelor." She became the front-runner for Jake's heart, but in a shocking turn of events, she was forced to make a heartbreaking choice between her dream job and continuing her relationship with Jake. Ali surprisingly chose her career - a decision she still regrets. But it's not too late for Ali now. She's left her home, her job, her stability behind - letting go of everything this time -- to really make a life-changing commitment to put her heart first and take a second chance at finding true love.
This season's premiere, "Episode 601," begins with 25 eligible men arriving from all over the country to try and win Ali's heart, including a real estate investor, a lawyer, a TV weatherman and even a professional wrestler. Each is more handsome than the next, with standout personalities. Tonight, as she returns to the mansion, nothing can prepare Ali for the lengths the guys will go to for her attention: one outdoorsman literally tries to reel her in, a hunky skier does a death-defying back flip off the limo and a one man even gets down on one knee and proposes.
Inside, the men are blown away about how incredibly gorgeous Ali looks in her slinky black dress - and the battle of the bachelors begins, as each tries to make the best first impression on the stunning Bachelorette. An aspiring writer is the first to snag some alone time with Ali, sharing his very inspiring story. One man scores some points with a sentimental scrapbook he made for her, but one clever guy steals the show and Ali's attention with a heart-felt, hilarious song, accompanying himself on a ukulele.
The competition heats up when Chris Harrison brings out the first impression rose. A sexy Latin bachelor seizes the moment to take Ali outside and teach her some salsa steps. Another handsome suitor rips his shirt open to reveal his professional wrestler alter ego, and a rugged country guy gives Ali a beautiful hand-crafted wood necklace to make his point.
But Ali grows concerned when one of the men uses his one-on-one time to warn her - already - that there may be some men here for reasons other than love. Chris comes to the rescue as he brings in a ballot box and instructs the men to each write down the name of a guy they feel isn't here for the right reasons. Tensions rise and tempers clash as the men size each other up and call each other out. As the men battle, Ali scoops up the first impression rose and offers it to someone who swept her off her feet. When the votes are tallied, one bachelor gets an overwhelming number of votes. But even though he is a marked man, Ali gives him some private time to convince her that his intentions are sincere. But will he have done enough to get a rose?
By the end of the evening, Ali, having the time of her life, is optimistic that the man of her dreams is among this group of bachelors. She must eliminate eight of the 25 men the first night, leaving 17 to compete for her affections and, in the end, her heart.
Ali's hunt for Mr. Right will take place during some of the most romantic and adventurous dates ever, with exciting surprises in store for her bachelors as they travel around the globe for intimate dates in Hollywood, Las Vegas, New York, Iceland, Istanbul, Lisbon and Tahiti. Ali and one lucky man sneak up to the Hollywood sign in Los Angeles, enjoying the city lights below. She whisks away one fortunate bachelor on a private jet to an exciting date at a new Las Vegas resort, which ends with a private performance by popular English jazz-pop singer Jamie Cullum. Nine guys are surprised when they get to shoot a music video with the Barenaked Ladies. Ali's Manhattan adventure starts with a glamorous photo shoot and make-over for InStyle magazine's July issue, out in mid-June. And the lights of Broadway are not far behind, as Ali auditions seven men to try and sing and dance their way into her heart with the hopes of being chosen to be featured with her in that night's performance of the landmark Tony Award-winning musical, "The Lion King." Ali and one of the lucky bachelors are surprised by a private concert from one of the Bachelorette's favorites, singer-songwriter Joshua Radin and the Harlem Boys Choir.
Traveling half way around the world, Ali and the remaining men visit the beautiful and exotic country of Iceland. The intrepid group transverse a frigid mountain plateau to a cave where they go spelunking. Then they enjoy a dip in the famous geothermal hot springs, Blue Lagoon. Ali takes two anxious men on a breathtaking helicopter ride over the active Eyjafjallajokull Volcano shortly before its eruption caused massive travel tremors around the world. The incredible outing leads to a huge glacier and a spectacular and romantic ice cave. But things steam up when Ali and the men move on to Istanbul, Turkey. The fun is just starting, as some of the bachelors must compete for Ali's time and attention, grappling with gargantuan Turkish olive oil wrestlers in a slippery throw-down. Lisbon, Portugal is the location for magical dates in romantic medieval settings at the Castle Sao Jorge and the town of Obidos, where Ali and two of the men don historic garments and are joined by local villagers in a dance. Finally, three lucky men travel with Ali to the island paradise of Tahiti for some of the most exotic and sensual overnight dates ever.
As in the past, men will continue to be eliminated each week, but if at any point along the way a bachelor should decide that he's no longer interested in the Bachelorette, he can reject her invitation to continue dating. Two lucky men will meet her family, and she will visit the final bachelors' hometowns for a slice of their lives in an effort to determine the man with whom she is most compatible -- but there are surprises in store for Ali that shake her world. At the end of the journey, the Bachelorette may quite possibly have found true love. But the big question is: After all of this, will he pop the question, and will she say yes?
