The Bachelor with Ben - The Best Bachelor Blogs

Hello readers, I'm sorry to announce that I won't be able to recap this season of the Bachelor. If you are looking for other recaps (No Spoilers!), may I recommend (click on the names for the links):

TOP PODCAST PICK: Here to Make Friends - A smart and hilarious podcast put out by Huffington Post. There are guests, including Bachelor folk - Sean and Catherine from Bachelor Fame previewed the current season. I look forward to this podcast every week. Posts usually on Tuesday afternoons.

TOP BLOG PICK: Flare - Sharleen Joynt, the opera singer from Juan Pablo's season, gives brief and thought-provoking commentaries. Her inside info about the Bachelor is eye-opening. Posts usually on Tuesday midday.

All the Pretty Pandas - If you can't get enough of Sharleen, she also writes longer blog posts, including fashion commentary, on All the Pretty Pandas, her personal site. The posts are awesome, but she posts inconsistently and may not make it to the end of the season. When she does post, it's great stuff.

Ben's own blog for - There's no consistent web address so I linked you to Ben's first blog post. Just click on "Ben Higgins" and that will take you to the rest of his blogs. See if you can guess his final pick! Posts on Tuesday mornings.

I Hate Green Beans - Classic play-by-play recapping that consistently has memorable lines. The author is in love with Chris Harrison (who I believe to be the devil) but I forgive her for being under his dark spell. Posts on Tuesdays. Reliable and thorough with many fans.

Lost Angeles - Full of snark and pop culture references. Not your traditional recap. Vinegary. You'll love it or you'll be like, "whaaaa?" Posts may take a day or two weeks (or may never arrive) but they're always worth the wait. He doesn't always make it to the end of the season.

Jen F. - Imagine a virtual raunchy friend making very inappropriate comments. She used to post play-by-plays, but it's now in bullet form. Posting time is inconsistent.

Yahoo (Chris Harrison) - Chris Harrison's official blog. Pure Bachelor propaganda. You'll have to google (or Yahoo) "Chris Harrison blog" because there's no consistent web address. Posts on Tuesdays.

Even though I'm not recapping, I'll be watching. See you next season (I hope)! In the meantime, enjoy this picture of nature:

Just as cute as Ben, right? 


  1. Bummer, I always look forward to reading your Bach-caps. I also read a few others from your list (and write one of my own), but appreciate the humor and succinct writing I get here. Hope to see more this spring!
