Exkimo Brothers
There are cordial breakups, devastating breakups, and then there’s the breakup that Jed and Hannah Brown went through, where Jed’s previous ex (who turned out to be the reason Jed and Hannah didn’t make it) is now engaged to his more recent ex’s brother. That’s right, Haley Stevens (Jed Wyatt’s ex, the woman with whom Jed was still involved while Hannah picked him as the winner of her Bachelorette season) is now engaged to Patrick Brown (Hannah Brown’s brother).
Jed had some pretty snarky comments when asked about Patrick and Haley’s relationship, and I can’t imagine Hannah is too thrilled either. Family dinners at the Brown household are destined to be quite the spectacle with Hannah’s ex’s ex set to become her sister-in-law.
Here for the Wrong Reasons
Think it’s safe to say that the contestants for Bachelor Season 26 likely are not fully there for Clayton, well, because they simply did not know he existed when they applied for the journey to becoming his future spouse. Highlighting the contestant pool is Marlena the former Olympian, Eliza the influencer marketing manager from Germany, and the three (count ’em, three) contestants from Virginia Beach, Virginia. You can check out a summary of all of Clayton’s suitors here. One thing is for certain: these 31 ladies are going to bring quite a bit of drama to our TV screens over the next few months.
Still Need Ideas for a Christmas Gift? (Sponsored)
Did you procrastinate like us and save your Christmas gift shopping until the last minute? Is your loved ones’ skin looking a little dry this winter? Well not to fear, our friends at Aavrani have a solution for both of those things.
If you buy a $100 gift card or spend $100 on an order, you’ll get a $50 gift card with your purchase. Head to their site now, add a gift card to your cart, and use code GIFT50. There is no more important time to exfoliate and get your glow back than right before you see your family for Christmas.
Can We Steal You for a Sec?
  • Sending prayers to Astrid Loch, Kevin Wendt, and their baby August, who was just hospitalized with COVID-19. The three all contracted Covid, and while Astrid is keeping her son company in the hospital, Kevin is waiting until his symptoms are gone to visit the two.

  • Not Shocking: Colton Underwood continues to lie about Bachelor Nation stars’ reactions to him coming out, with Tayshia most recently debunking his claims that he ‘kept his sweatshirt and sweatpants on’ during their Fantasy Suites sleepover. Spoiler alert: he slept in boxers.
  • 5 years and 565,000 loyal users later, Bach Bracket has gotten a much-needed makeover. Clayton’s season of The Bachelor is right around the corner, and league creation is officially open!

“Happy Holidays…from The Commoners” is what Riley captioned this pic of him and Maurissa (ATFR inside joke). You both are Bachelor Royalty to us! (H/T @rileydchristian, Riley Christian: Bachelorette 16, BIP 7)
