An Interview with Mike Fleiss and Other News

by Coastal 6/7/13

Coming soon, we will be bringing you all a special section. Have you ever wanted to know the stats but just don't...that is the only clue I am going to give you all for now.

Here's a tidbit that might interest all. Just saw this interview by Mike Fleiss where he is talking about the return of Bachelor Pad.

He also eludes to some possible hyjinks(more than the usual drama I would assume) with the ending of Desiree's season.

Ten years of the Bachelor

by coastal 3/27/12


In honour of the 10th anniversary of the Bachelor Franchise, we thought that we would bring you the updates from the last 10 years:

  • 124 rose ceremonies
  • 789 roses handed out
  • 407 contestants

that the Bachelor Nation have introduced to us through the 16 seasons of The Bachelor.  These are all approximate totals of course, but come join us on our journey of memories!

BACHELOR SEASON 1 – Alex Michel   

In 2002, management consultant Alex Michel became the first ever ‘Bachelor.’  With this being the first season, both Alex and the viewers were in for a few surprises.   By the end of the season, Alex had to choose between his two finalists; Amanda and Trista.  In the end, he thought his chances of a longer lasting relationship lay with Amanda.  After dating Amanda for a year (he didn’t propose,) the couple broke up. After his stint on the Bachelor, Alex immersed himself in his career.

Robert Mills

An interview with Coastal

Producer Robert Mills was kind enough to provide the following interview with our Coastal. We found his views interesting: no doubt you will, also.


Obviously since the first season of The Bachelor, things have changed. What did you like about the first few seasons that you wish you could go back to....ie: How the dates were done? The logistics of scheduling for large groups without all the attention you are getting now? Or what else of the first few years that you wish you could go back to?


Well I actually didn't’t get involved with the show until Lorenzo’s season, so I wasn’t there for the early seasons but I certainly remember when the show started and those early seasons.  I don’t think there is anything to ever go back to in terms of earlier seasons.  I think we look at every season and see what worked and what didn’t and use that info going forward.

Mike Fleiss

Exclusive ATR Interview with coastal

Coastal sat down with Mike Fleiss for the following interview. She found him well-spoken, very funny, and laid back. His love for the show comes through in every response.



It has been reported that the reason for you to produce, "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-millionaire" in 2000, was because you wanted to be a producer of a show that people got married on while the show was being televised?


Yes, "Who Wants to Marry a Multi-millionaire" was a spoof on a traditional beauty pageant where fifty women would come out, answer the questions, show off their bodies in bathing suits, maybe a talent competition, all in the hopes of impressing a multi-millionaire and marry at the end of the show.
