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.

The Women Tell All in All it's Glory
By coastal 3/5/13
As many in the “Bachelor Nation” know, the Women Tell All was seen last night. Women of Bachelor season 17 including Ashley P(better known as the 50 shades lady), Diana, Brooke, Daniella, Jackie, Kacie, Leslie, Kristy, Taryn, Katie, Amanda, Selma, Robyn, Sarah, Desiree, Lesley M and Ash Lee F. All the ladies had some stuff to say but no one more than Ash Lee....More on that later.
First thing they accomplished was the “elephant” in the room...yup, you got it right....TIERRA and her sparkle came back. During the “rewind” clip showing more of Tierra’s antics, the women were free to dish on their time in the house with Tierra and the “sparkle” that she left with all of them. They even dissed on how fake she was during her fall down the stairs and her polar bear plunge in Canada. During her time in the “hot seat” Tierra dished on how mean the other women were to her, and how they maintained a bully type attitude throughout the season.
When she was done, the women had a chance to have their say.They tried to get her to admit to being mean to them through the season, not to mention how she says that she was never un-friendly to the rest of the women in the house. Even through all of her verbal merry-go-rounds, it was evident that any apology that she would give the women was completely unfelt and definitely not accepted by any of the women as they could see through her crap once again. Close to the end of Tierra’s time on stage, Chris brought up the ring on her finger. Tierra immediately tries to act coy about it, but Harrison finally got out the engagement date with it being in January. Wonder if this has something to do with her contract; she can’t be seen dating others or engaged till her time on the show was done and correct me if I am wrong, but that wasn’t until February sometime....right??
The next one into the hot seat was Sarah. I got to say, her session was really good. Sarah learned a lot about herself throughout this experience. The main stickler for herself is that whenever she has been rejected she uses the old fallback of blaming the status of only having one arm....Seeing how her personality is, I really don’t think that was the case and it was more likely a case of personalities that just didn’t mesh.
Desiree took her turn talking to Chris; Mostly about her hometown date, but they also talked about how she honestly thought she was at that time falling in love with Sean. The one main thing that she wanted to straighten out about the hometown date is the fact that her brother has regrets about it as even she admits that what we saw isn’t really her brother. Meaning, that isn’t how her brother normally acts. Okay. When asked, she too has learned a lot more about herself; she now knows that she needs to be a lot more open and also needs to not let herself sabotage any other relationships as she tends to let her thoughts about the relationship get in the way of the actual relationship. Now if you all can let me know what that means, I’d be grateful!
And finally Ash Lee. At first, she sits down in the hotseat to talk to Harrison. She had a lot to say even going as far as saying that Sean told her that she would be meeting his family and that his sister and Ash Lee would get along great. She honestly fell in love with him and believed Sean to be a “southern Gentleman” even though after watching the season she saw that he was definitely somewhat of a “frat-boy” with the other women.
When she finally had Sean up in the “hotseat” she was able to confront him. One thing that AshLee had a hang up on and she kinda alluded to it while talking to Chris, but she really wanted to know why Sean didn’t come to make sure she was okay after he let her go at the F3 rose ceremony in Thailand considering he was the “southern gentleman” that she thought he was.
With regards to what he said to her in the fantasy suite: she claims that he told her that he felt nothing at all with the other women(he flat out denied that he said anything of the sort). Now that combined with the statements of how he says that she will be meeting his family she honestly thought she had this whole thing in the bag.hear your thoughts on this!
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:
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.

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.

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.
