‘Bachelor’ Ben Episode 1 Recap: Ben Meets Twins, Terribly Dressed Girls & a Tiny Horse

"And to think-- I wanted to marry Kaitlyn!"

“And to think– I wanted to marry Kaitlyn!”

Break out your JC Penny prom dress and slap on some hair extensions, ladies, because The Bachelor is back! It feels like it’s been years since we walked the cornfields with Farmer Chris on the last season of the show!

For this season’s Bachelor, they’ve chosen Ben Higgins, a software salesman from Indiana who is just about as exciting as a software salesman from Indiana sounds. Of course, he’s brought his “open heart” for “this journey” and he’s “ready to find love.” He’s 26 and from a small town in Middle America. To demonstrate this, they drag him out to some farm with a barn and make him shoot hoops. We are then treated to seeing Ben’s elementary school (where he says he still creeps around occasionally…), the movie theater where he had his first kiss, and some weird parade-thing that’s held in a parking lot.

Sean Lowe Responds to Backlash Over ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ Episode

"I'm not a jerk-- I promise!"

“I’m not a jerk– I promise!”

Former Bachelor stars Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici have been making the most of their reality TV fame lately. After meeting and marrying on The Bachelor, the couple has popped up frequently on other shows. They appeared with Jason and Molly Mesnick on Celebrity Wife Swap earlier this week, but that experience has proven to be anything but fun. Sean recently spoke out to let his fans know that he’s not the self-centered oaf that he appeared to be on the show.

During their ‘Celebrity Wife Swap’ episode–in which Catherine switched lives and households with Molly–viewers saw a new side of Sean. Between his demands for only super-healthy food to making his wife complete a “To-Do” list of stupid chores like ironing his socks, viewers were appalled by Sean’s behavior.

Jason Mesnick on Producer’s Hi-Jinks: ‘The Bachelor’ is “Probably 20 Percent Real”

Mesnick The Bachelor Fake

“They made me say that!”

File this under: “Not Shocking At All”

Former Bachelor stars Jason and Molly Mesnick took to their new podcast recently to discuss the show that made them famous: The Bachelor. In the first episode, they held nothing back when talking about the reality of reality TV.

“I’m going to throw a percentage out there, it’s probably 20% real,” Jason said of ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelorette.'”The first person I met was someone from the story department. I thought, ‘What the hell is someone from the story department doing on a reality show? It makes sense to me now, they have to kind of piece the story together.”

‘Bachelor’ Stars Jason & Molly Mesnick Welcome Baby Girl!

Break out the pink T-shirts!

It’s a girl for Jason and Molly Mesnick! The former Bachelor star and his wife (who he met on the show) welcomed baby Riley Anne on Thursday!

The couple currently holds the honor of being the only couple to ever get married after meeting on ‘The Bachelor.’ (Yes, Trista and Ryan Sutter, and Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum have also married, but those relationships were the result of The Bachelorette.) Jason has a son, from a previous relationship, but Riley is Molly’s first child.

Are ‘Bachelor’ Couple Jason & Molly Mesnick Having a Boy or a Girl?

PregnancyJason and Molly Mesnick are about to welcome their first child together, with Molly due to give birth in about a month and a half! The baby will be the third child that’s a direct result of the Bachelor franchise. (Trista and Ryan Sutter, who met on the first season of The Bachelorette, have two children.)

Molly who is stepmom to Ty, Jason’s son from a previous relationship, said that she and Jason have decided not to find out the gender of their child until Molly gives birth.

“We haven’t found out if [it’s a] boy or a girl,” Molly told The Ashley earlier this month during a cocktail party at the Bachelor Mansion. “Obviously, it would be really good for Ty to have a brother, but then again, it would be awesome to have a little girl so that I’m not outnumbered in the house!  But honestly whatever it is I’ll be happy.”

‘Bachelor’ Couple Jason & Molly Mesnick Are Having a Baby!

The Bachelor

"We're pregnant!"

Former Bachelor star Jason Mesnick has announced that he and his wife, Molly are expected their first baby!

After weeks of bad news coming from the couples of the Bachelor franchise (Breakups! Cheating! Extortion!) it’s great to hear some positive news! Jason and Molly are the only couple in ‘Bachelor’ history to ever actually make it down the aisle after meeting on the show. (Of course, many people say that their marriage doesn’t “count” as a successful ‘Bachelor’ marriage, since Jason originally picked Melissa Rycroft, then dumped her during the finale for Molly.)

The couple has been married since 2010 and they, along with Jason’s son Ty, live in Washington and generally keep out of the spotlight (which is probably why they’re still together!) Jason took to his Twitter to announce their big news.
