When last season's "The Bachelor" ended with Prince Farming picking suspiciously perky fertility nurse Whitney to be his wife, we were outraged since we thought laid-back Becca was a much better choice. (We've since been vindicated somewhat.) We were then further outraged to see that the upcoming season of "The Bachelorette" would kick off with not one, but two bachelorettes, with the mantestants voting to decide who should be the woman of their affection.
Yup, that already sounds way confusing so we won't write any further except to say that crazysexycool Kanadian Kaitlyn beat out weepy waitress Britt (thank God) to be this season's Bachelorette. As is the norm for the "Bachelor/Bachelorette" dating shows, this season promises to be the most shocking season ever. And since the previews showed Kaitlyn admitting to having sex with one of the mantestants, we kind of believe them this time.
But it has been hard for us to get into the season. Most of the men are incredibly cheesy. Which is always to be expected but somehow this bunch hasn't been that entertaining. We even skipped this week's episode entirely (choosing instead to read the excellent Lost Angeles Blog recap) but we'll be tuning in next week now that we know the recently opened Knickerbocker Hotel makes an appearance.

Andi Dorfman, bad-ass lawyer turned America's newest "The Bachelorette", took the three potential loves of her life, on a tropical adventure to the Dominican Republic with the hope of getting to know her suitors more intimately (coughFantasySuitecough) and perhaps, receiving an on-bended-knee proposal, complete with a diamond ring (by Neil Lane, of course.)
Andi, Josh, Nick and Chris all shacked up at the luxury all-inclusive Paradisus Punta Cana Resort, a Meliá hotel right on the Punta Cana beach. The resort is stunning and gorgeous and seemingly everything you could want from a romantic getaway. There are close to 700 rooms and suites to choose from so whether you're on a lovers' getaway or a family vacation, you'll find a room to suit your needs. There are also nine restaurants and bars, a Yhi spa, and activities galore, for all age groups.
But the only activity we cared about in Monday's night "Bachelorette" episode was vying for the Final Rose.

Last week, The Bachelorette promised a "shocking" development in the first part of their two-part season finale on the island of Antigua where Desiree Hartsock had flown with the three men she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. And by "shocking" they clearly meant an acting reel for Des and Brooks for their next soap opera audition.
About an hour of the two-hour special was spent on Brooks decision to tell Des that he loved her but he did not love her. This devastated Des as she was going to pick Brooks to be the one to manipulate tabloid coverage with her for the next few months. There were lots and lots of crocodile tears from both parties but the only thing we could focus on was the killer view from the dock of the Verandah Resort. While reality TV orchestrated "love" may come and go, the views at the Verandah Resort are very real.

Last week, we learned that The Bachelorette, Desiree Hartstock, filmed one of her numerous dates at the Ojai Valley Inn, much to guest Johnny Jet's dismay. This week, we learn that Des and her men took over the Andaz West Hollywood and what a date it was: Our tipster writes in:
I was meeting a friend for lunch on the Sunset Strip this Thursday when we noticed a crowd in front of the Andaz hotel and a production crew with three or four cameras. We looked up and people were dancing on the facade of the building. We stuck around until the dancers came down to the ground and saw it was Des (The Bachelorette) on one of her dates. Here's a pic I snapped while they were rigged up on wires.

Even though The Bachelor has ended (congrats Sean and Catherine, we give it a year!), this only means that The Bachelorette is just beginning. According to RealitySteve.com filming has indeed commenced for Desiree Hartstock and her boys.
While Steve has hinted that he knows where the show will go after they do a few elimination rounds in LA, he hasn't spilled the beans just yet. But that's ok because our friend Johnny Jet has a first-hand scoop on where the Bachelorette filmed one of their dates--The Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. And boy, it is not good. For the hotel at least.
Johnny and wife headed up to Ojai from LA last weekend for a nice quiet retreat. Instead they got helicopters, an over abundance of production crew and rude staff. He writes:
When I tried to pull up to valet, the hotel staff questioned where we were going — he almost seemed surprised we were hotel guests. He told us that only self-parking was available and he guided me to the parking lot as the Bentley was quickly coming up from behind. While waiting for them to finish their shot, I snapped the photo above. In between the retakes, we walked to the lobby to get a golf cart to the room since it’s a long walk and Natalie wasn’t feeling well.

It's hard for us to stomach any news about two of the most annoying reality TV dating shows that just will not die aka "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette." We have so many issues we could list but we'll keep it to one big one--it's totally fake.
About the only thing that is legit on these shows are the exotic hotels and resorts where the proposals usually happen. If you recall, last year's "Bachelorette" Ashley headed all the way to Fiji to accept a ring from her
chump man. The year before, Ali headed to Tahiti with her hostages suitors.
This year, viewers got an extended glimpse inside the Sandton Kura Hulanda Hotel & Spa in downtown Curacao where Emily Maynard accepted a proposal from Jef Holm.
The proposal actually happened in the resort's village square which is comprised of restored buildings from the 17th and 18th century that show off the intricate Dutch architecture of that colonial era. It's even been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site.
We may not know whether unlucky-in-love Bachelorette Ashley Hebert will give her final rose to Constantine, Ben or J.P., but we can tell you where she'll be shacking up with them in tonight's episode. The jilted bachelorette—damn, you, Bentley—will take her remaining men to Namale resort in Savusavu, Fiji.
Ashley and her suitors will head to the luxury all-inclusive hotel for the first overnight dates. She'll have plenty of places at Namale to get some romantic private time, including private villas, walks to nearby waterfalls and a spa.

We've said it once and we'll say it again: We have zero interest in "The Bachelorette" Ashley Hebert and her quest to find the man of her dreams. Call us jaded or whatever but we think "The Bachelor/Bachelorette" track record for "true love" speaks for itself. It's only when the girl and her guys head off to an exotic locale that we pay attention.
SPOILER ALERT: This season's dream destination is none other than the glittering metropolis of Hong Kong, one of HotelChatter favorite cities and truly a place rife with photogenic 5-star hotels. This Hong Kong visit actually follows brief romantic interludes in Phuket and Chiang Mai, Thailand. Alas, HK will take center stage as Bentley returns, making the 13-hour flight from the States to rock Ashley's (and the remaining bachelors') world yet again.
As for where they're staying, it's a hotel more known for business than romance:

Ok folks, here's the deal. We have zero interest in "The Bachelorette" Ali Fedotowsky and her quest to find the man of her dreams. Call us jaded or whatever but we think "The Bachelor/Bachelorette" track record for "true love" speaks for itself.
However, we do get our kicks from the sexy destinations where the final rose ceremony goes down. Last season's "The Bachelor", found Jake and his girls in St. Lucia at two different romantic resorts and this season, Ali takes her beefcakes to Tahiti Hotels.
Everyone shacked up at the Hilton Bora Bora Nui (formerly a Starwood Hotel) but a few date activities were also planned at the nearby Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa.
The scenes were shot in early May and according to the rags, Ali has indeed picked a
poor unfortunate soul to torture fiancee!
In the last season of The Bachelor,
fake airline pilot Jake had to make his big decision while hotel-hopping in St. Lucia. In this season of "The Bachelorette," featuring one-time Jake love interest, Ali Fedotowsky, the gang goes hotel-hopping before Ali has to make her big decision. Their first stop? Andaz Wall Street.
Apparently, the hotel's Buttonwood Suite was used for an InStyle photo shoot featuring Ali and the boys. The suite is a 1,465-sq.ft loft-style suite with two-bedroom, two and a half baths, a living area, dining room and a kitchen. All of the Andaz amenities can be found here as well like the spinning wardrobe valet, 42-inch flat screens and free WiFi and minibar snacks. And as for the suite's name, the hotel explains:

Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas has found her prince (for now anyways) and to officially show Jesse Csincsak off to the world, she hit up the new revamped pool lounge at the Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey on Sunday.
The pool area was transformed into a party for tan, muscled, well-dressed 20-somethings with the occasional tattoo and nipple ring. DeAnna and Jesse cuddled in the corner at a reserved table and even took a dip in the pool together. In case you missed it, don't fret. This type of party will be happening more often at the Ritz.
