Tim Robard’s Reckons He Has Hooked Up With One Of The Girls

Two surprising stories about The Bachelor emerged this weekend. The first one was former Labor leader Mark Latham writing about his love for the trashy TV show in Sun-Herald.Β He did not admit to liking the “quality box” he was seeing on his screen but he did write about being fascinated by The Bachelorette’s.

It was funny read and one of the best bits was:

I’m fascinated by all the bachelorettes but none more so than Danielle, a 24-year-old events co-ordinator from the Gold Coast.

Before she failed to receive a rose and had to leave the show on November 6, she played the role of that perennial schoolyard favourite, the mean girl. Mid-series, when her arch-rival Ali came to grief in a boating accident, the look on Danielle’s face mirrored that of Sophie Mirabella the night Simon Sheikh hit the deck onΒ Q&A. That is, flint-faced contempt for their opponent’s plight.

Also in another story in the same paper Tim Robard’s says he has hooked up with the winner and can’t wait to take her out in public. He told Christine Sams of the Herald (I can’t seem to fine online link):

“Obviously I can’t take her with me [until the series is over] so it’s hard, even just stepping out by myself, then people jump on it,” he says “I can’t wait until this week because people will hopefully see that it is real.”

Who do you think Tim has picked? Rochelle or Anna?

The Bachelor grand final on TEN Wednesday night at 7.30pm.

Article by a one-baller commenting on the chances chicks who are “two-baggers” have with a guy who’s a three-dicker.
Go figure. Well done, Mark, maaaaate.

So Rochelle is an actor and lives in Sydney.

I can’t think Anna is from Syd. Thus Tim may have picked Rochelle but will it last? Rochelle will use this to further her acting skills. Sorry Tim, you may have been used by Rochelle. πŸ˜€

All of the rejected Bachelorettes will be back on Thurs for After the Rose.

Ali may have one final, desperate tilt at Tim yet.

I think Tim will choose Rochelle. She’s closer to his age and probably been burned before.

Which gel is going to cope best with Tim’s hands all over Bondi cougars on heat every day?

I am not surprised that ML is likening the current and recent political antics to reality TV.

“Ali may have one final, desperate tilt at Tim yet.”

Maybe she’s seen Misery and will do something drastic so one of his “appendages” (there’s three to choose from) needs splinting and she can play Doctors and Nurses while he’s bedridden.

Anna. In the preview Anna’s scene was shot at dusk whereas Rochelle’s scene had more daylight.

I will be live blogging finale tonight. Was at TEN upfronts last night and it was interesting to know that they got over 7 million hits online. Will get story up on it later but just having my annual haircut. Spoke to Tim Robards he says he is looking forward to being out with his lady love.

8 brain dead dave { 11.20.13 at 12:10 pm }

You talked to Tim and didn’t die from boredom?

9 Reality Raver { 11.20.13 at 12:18 pm }

BDD he reckon a lot of his dialogue was edited out. For the record I did not mentioned the naked photo.

10 peacetrain { 11.20.13 at 12:27 pm }

RR, I can’t believe you didn’t bring it up. And that neither did he.

11 brain dead dave { 11.20.13 at 12:28 pm }

What ? Dialogue like “I suppose a root on the bonnet of the Porsche before I hand it back is out of the question, Ali?”

12 peacetrain { 11.20.13 at 12:29 pm }

RR, did he ask you to list his best qualities?

And did you get a rose?

13 peacetrain { 11.20.13 at 12:30 pm }

And I hope you didn’t come across as too keen.
Tim doesn’t like that.

14 Reality Raver { 11.20.13 at 12:49 pm }

No roses anywhere – ten must have used all there flower budget up on show. Silly fact – Gillette razors were product placement in the show. I missed that one

15 Culinary Boner { 11.20.13 at 12:56 pm }
16 mittens { 11.20.13 at 1:16 pm }

Did you open up to him?

And show your vulnerable side?

And are you regretting you mentioned the interview yet?

17 Reality Ravings { 11.20.13 at 1:19 pm }

CB I have no dignity
Mittens – I did not interview him just chatted

18 Culinary Boner { 11.20.13 at 1:25 pm }

I see.

I reckon Gillette are apt sponsors because of the very close shave the contestants are having with a life of dull-witted banality.

Timbo can’t seriously be suggesting that Shine edited out the bits where his repartee makes him look like a studly (but straight) Oscar Wilde?

19 brain dead dave { 11.20.13 at 1:28 pm }

The razor blades are for viewers to slash their wrists with when Tim starts talking.

20 mittens { 11.20.13 at 1:34 pm }

Maybe they are for his friar tuck hairdo.

21 Georgie { 11.20.13 at 3:37 pm }

I’m sure a lot of his dialogue was edited out – in an effort to make him sound interesting no doubt.

22 Bolders { 11.20.13 at 4:06 pm }

Georgie I wish they had edited out some of the craptacular protestations of love and affection from the actresses on that show.

There’s a reason why actors dont write their own dialogue you know.

23 Georgie { 11.20.13 at 4:20 pm }

Bolders, we need to get hold of the footage on the cutting room floor and cobble up a show. In fact a whole new rtv industry awaits…
…Bin Ends.

24 Bolders { 11.20.13 at 4:31 pm }

Now that would be insightful. How many, ‘like’ ‘you know’ and “nah but yeah’ or ‘yeah but nah” pepper those conversations?

Or maybe what’s in the Bin Ends, is a lot of staring into space with open mouths.

while fingering a banjo…

25 Georgie { 11.20.13 at 4:35 pm }

Ta dah dumdum dumdum dah dah dum.

26 brain dead dave { 11.20.13 at 4:54 pm }

Shouldn’t torpid Tim be producing two roses,entwined together?

He could sheepishly hand out black or blue roses to the rejected gels.

27 mittens { 11.20.13 at 5:19 pm }

Yes, “Most of what I said was edited out”, isn’t something to brag about. Haha.

28 Georgie { 11.20.13 at 6:13 pm }

Black and blue roses would also match the gels bruised ego’s bdd.
