It's Reality BXTCHES | The Bachelorette | Weekly recap on

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2017

BXTCHES Gotta Warn: So, if you have yet to join the party. . .welcome, you will not be disappointed. This is the first time I have actually briefed you BXTCHES on the show, prior to the show airing. But, I thought it would be fun to get to know the who’s who of Rachel’s season, so sit back and enjoy.

FULL DISCLOSURE: When I started to put this list together, I did have to do a bit of stalking and research. I went to every social media platform that was accessible. I am posting this Monday night/Tuesday morning (May 15/16) and as I went to preview and check all my links, I noticed that some of the social media accounts that were active less than 24 hours prior, are no longer active. As you read through, I have made note of which ones these are. I did leave the links, just in case.

  • His social media following is much more successful on Instagram with 1500+ followers. Twitter is not as popular, currently he only has 16 Twitter followers, so crossing fingers that he doesn’t get a new account, you may wanna take advantage and become his #1 (fan).

Jamey, 32

Bryce, 30

  • From Orlando

  • Most romantic gift he has ever received? A handwritten letter.
  • Once caught a girl’s hair on fire while have sex, good thing he’s a firefighter. I really do need more of the details on that.

  • His LinkedIn account shows he attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles and Cal State, Fresno.
  • Works as an Executive Recruiter.
  • His motto (according to Facebook): “A cross between Seth Cohen and Kanye West” and he did just brag on his Mother’s Day post (on Facebook) that he was headed into a strip club and that he helped a stripper pay her bills for the month. . .so no spoiler needed here, I don’t see him making it to the end.
  • Was one of the few who met Rachel on Nick’s ATFR. He was the one who had plane tickets and a ring ready to go.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Blake, 31

  • Born in Florida and currently resides in Los Angeles.
  • Drummer and Personal Trainer.
  • Met Rachel on Nick’s ATFR.
  • Previously engaged (to a “crazy girl”-his words, not mine) for only 48 hours
  • Loves taboo sexy stuff
  • His Facebook account is aimed towards his personal training career (Blake Elarbee Fitness) and he has 2 different YouTube channels (BlakeElarbee and BlakeElarbeeFitness). Not too many followers on either account (221 and 162) and his Twitter account shows only 221 followers. Most of his social media seems to come from Instagram, where he has 5400+ followers.
  • In 2010 was charged with a DUI.
  • Has an ex, who has already tweeted: “LMAO my ex is gonna be on the next season of The Bachelorette (Blake) – I can’t wait to roast him and his bullshit all season.” Her Twitter handle is @searchingoceans. . .we should definitely follow her.
  • Was part of the cast of WE’s Ex Isle, alongside co-Bachelorette contestant Lucas Yancey. Rumor has it, Blake hooked up with Lucas’ ex and according to In Touch, the two dated and even lived together after filming finished. So before we begin. . .a rivalry is brewing.

Dean, 26

  • Recruiter for a tech recruiting company in Los Angeles (where he resides).
  • Attended the University of Colorado.
  • When asked “What does being married mean to you?” His answer: “I think marriage is an institutionalized sham derived from religious beliefs. That said, when I get married, it’s a life-long commitment.”
  • He has a pretty decent Instagram following (close to 3000) and with a name like deanie_babies, would you expect anything less? The picture above and his Instagram name apparently go hand in hand. His current Twitter account only has 69 followers and just one tweet, so clearly deanie_babies is his bread and butter.
  • He also met Rachel on Nick’s ATFR and you’ll remember him because he is the one who told Rachel “I’m ready to go black and I’m never gonna go back.” So, definitely looking forward to this gem.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Eric, 29

  • From Baltimore, but now calls Los Angeles home.
  • According to his LinkedIn account, his current jobs include: Motivational Speaker, Difference Maker, Personal Trainer, Author, and CEO EBiggs Training. So, if Rachel is looking for an ambitious lover. . .she may have found him. Oh, and he’s a former model.
  • Graduated in 2010 from Hampton University.
  • He has a Facebook account, but it shows absolutely no posts, and there are 215 people following him, who I imagine are sitting around checking their phone, anxiously awaiting what sort of uplifting message will start their day and continue to be disappointed. His Twitter account is a bit more impressive with 421 followers and 5000+ tweets, but his account is set to private, so we’ll have to get motivated through another source. Maybe Instagram (3800 followers), but you could turn to visual motivation and check out his YouTube account, he is only sitting at 110 subscribers, so he could use a bit of a boost. 
  • If Eric is the one that Rachel chooses, she would be able to say that she is marrying herself an author. His current works include: Quotes To Shape Your Life and 100 Days of Wisdom: Wisdom for Life. Jump on over to Amazon, if you’re looking for a bit of a pick me up.
  • Another one who met Rachel already, he was the awkward dancer.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Josiah, 28

  • Born and still resides in Fort Lauderdale, FL (I think). . .other sites have him in Tallahassee, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
  • Prosecuting Attorney (surely you realize how that benefits him).
  • Has got down to the biz-ness in his office at work. . .so counsel lives a bit on the edge. I approve.
  • Attended University of Central Florida and Florida State University College of Law
  • Was featured in a blog post by, which you can read here.
  • Has a pretty active Facebook and about 2500 followers on his Instagram (No longer active).

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Kenny, 35

  • This fucker is by far the most interesting contestants that I have stalked researched. . .thought you BXTCHES would enjoy that little nugget of information.
  • From Orlando, resides in Las Vegas.
  • Is/was a professional wrestler.
  • Attended Florida State University/University of South Florida/UNLV (I have no clue if a degree is involved with any of those universities).
  • His Facebook page has him working at Impact Wrestling.
  • Has a daughter.
  • Has had sex with a woman while her husband watched (maybe that was part of his swinger phase).
  • Worked at Chippendale’s.
  • Has his own Wikipedia page (check it out here).
  • Has the most social media following of any contestant by far, with over 55K Twitter followers and about 5700 followers on Instagram.
  • The best thing I uncovered about him? He was on an episode of Baggage (the Jerry Springer dating show) back in 2011 titled “Wrestlers in Hollywood”. I am having a very difficult time finding the video, but I do know he wasn’t picked, but made it to the final two and his 3 pieces of baggage were. . .He urinated in an ex’s gas tank. . .At one time he was a swinger. . .He has had a threesome with 2 sisters. My next question is obviously, “how do we think the judge. . .federal judge. . .would welcome Kenny “King” Layne?”.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Kyle, 26

  • Marketing Consultant from Los Angeles
  • Played a bit with the BDSM world with an ex. Enjoyed it with her, but doesn’t enjoy the part where he hurts people, so I’m gonna say Rachel is probably safe, unless she enjoys the ball and gag life.
  • Would describe himself as a lover: “intimate, emotional, fun, supportive”. But, if you’re wondering how he describes himself in the actual act. . .“athletic”. That’s what a woman is looking for. . .I hope Rachel is ready to strap on her gear.


The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Jack, 32

  • From and currently resides in Dallas-for those of you not keeping score, Rachel is also from Dallas.
  • Real Estate Attorney-keeping score yet? Rachel is also an attorney.
  • Attended UT Austin and University of Texas School of Law.
  • Mom passed away in 2003, when he was just a senior in high school .
  • No Facebook posts since February (but I assume that is around when filming started), Instagram is set to private.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Brady, 29

  • His information is all over the place. According to his LinkedIn, he attended Iowa State University from 2006-2008 and the University of St. Thomas from 2009-2011 (which is where is earned his BA in communications and journalism). His account also has him living in and/or from New York and other sources have him from Minnesota, but living in Los Angeles.
  • However, he is a legit model. Just do a quick Google search and his profiles with different agencies will pop up.
  • Lululemon sweatpants is the most romantic gift he has ever seen. I’m not sure how I feel about that.
  • One of his LEAST favorite things to do on a date is to “pay for everything” and the person he dislikes most in the world is Mike “The Situation” from the Jersey Shore (there MUST be a story there somewhere).
  • AND if you really need another reason to not like his too much, when asked “If you could live in any other time period, what would it be?” His answer: “The 80’s”
  • Yes, he has his own website and two separate Instagram accounts. The first account is set to private with a little over 5,000 followers, the second account is his ode to brunch and with only 166 followers is very public. His Twitter says he lives in Miami and his following is only at 157. . .so jump on. His Snapchat is: bradyervin and his last post on Facebook was in October and apparently he was feeling “fabulous” because he ran “7 miles and 7 sets of stairs”. He called it his “7th heaven run”. I’m gonna let you BXTCHES do what you will with that information.

Kenneth “Diggy”, 31

  • Pretty sure he currently resides in Chicago, that info is based on his LinkedIn account and according to Facebook he was at a Blackhawks game back in February, so I just pieced it together.
  • Attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign-College of Business, where he did get his degree.
  • Works as a Senior Inventory Analyst
  • He once entered a sexual positions contest in Cancun (spring break, of course).
  • According to Facebook, you can refer to him as Kenneth “Diggy” Moreland. . .I really hope Rachel takes advantage of this and “Diggies” the shit out of him.
  • He works for Groupon (definitely a mark in the pro column).
  • He is a bit busy on social media. He is currently at 510 followers on Twitter and about 700 on Instagram, both accounts are set to private. The only social media that is now active is his Facebook.

Grant, 29

  • From New York.
  • Emergency Medicine Attending Physician at New York Methodist Hospital.
  • Attended University of Florida and University of Florida College of Medicine.
  • Has about 850 followers on Instagram, but that account is set to private and there is no recent activity on his Facebook page.
  • His most embarrassing moment? “I once had a stomach bug in Peru and had to defecate in a cut open 2-liter coke bottle in the back of a tour bus.”
  • His Facebook page mentions a brother, but through other research, he also has a sister (Cher) who appeared on MTV’s “My Super Sweet” and later appeared on the MTV show “Exiled”.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Lucas, 30

  • From Woodside, CA-lives in Los Angeles.
  • His job is listed as a Real Estate Investor and if you check out his Facebook, he did put a property up for rent. But he also has a IMBD page that lists him as an actor and producer (he did work for the Farrelly Brothers as a PA). BUT, his job on is listed as Whaboom (keep reading)
  • He studied at UC Berkeley.
  • If he could have lunch with any one person, dead: Bruce Jenner. . .alive: Caitlyn Jenner.
  • Has had a threesome (wedding party). 
  • He was a cast member of the WE’s Ex Isle along with Blake Elarbee, where allegedly Blake hooked up and eventually lived with Lucas’ ex. So, that should make for some must see TV.
  • After a thorough look at both his Facebook and Twitter pages, it seems that he is trying to make #WHAAABOOOOM go viral. He does have a little over 1000 Twitter followers and his quote on Twitter is “R U funny yet?”, I’m gonna go out on a plank and say. . .no. . .no he is not. His Instagram is lagging (especially if he is serious about acting), it is sitting at only 24 followers and is set to private.
  • He does have his own YouTube channel, take that and tuck it in your pocket, it might come in handy later.
  • And I think he maybe goes by Y-Man. . .so he can add super creative to his list of things he does well.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Lee, 30

  • Lives in Nashville. . .so, I’ll give you one guess on what his job is??
  • That’s right BXTCHES, we have found our resident musician. Well, according to his LinkedIn account he is actually a jack of all trades, he lists: Professional Actor/Singer/Songwriter/Bartender/Small Business Owner as his professions, so his toe has been dipped in a lot of pools.
  • Attended University of Florida where he studied Psychology. . .so another pool
  • On every social media account he operates, he has #notmychi and #theseboots. . .so I’m thinking he is desperate to trend. He also lists “Pleasantly Offensive.Exceptionally Southern.Facetious.Loyal.Always Someone*” (listed just like that). I guess we’re supposed to take it all at face value. 
  • Absolutely no activity on his Facebook account, but is pretty active with Instagram (almost 1600 followers) and he does Tweet a lot, well at least he did before he started filming. His last tweet. . .“Life is about creating yourself, not finding yourself.” That Lee Garrett is deep, BXTCHES. Of course his tweet prior to that. . .“It’s official. When I am sick, I’m a baby.” He’s gonna do great things.

Anthony, 26

  • Lives in Chicago.
  • Played football at Northwestern University where he earned his BA in English Literature and Philosophy .
  • Speaks four languages (could be a good snag, Rachel)-French, Indonesian, Spanish, and Latin.
  • Works as an Education Software Manager.
  • When asked “What’s the wildest thing you’ve done in the bedroom?” His answer: “I’ll just say I have virtually no limits once that connection is there.” My kind of attitude.
  • His only Facebook post is from May 5 (2017) and his Instagram is set to private with 600 followers.

Michael, 26

  • Former Professional Basketball Player. 
  • From Chicago
The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Milton, 31

  • Works as a Hotel Recreation Supervisor from Florida
  • Has a tattoo on the inside of his bottom lip.
  • His biggest achievement in his life, to date? He dominated his basketball league after college. Good lord, I hope this guy is a beast in the bedroom.
  • When asked what it is he hopes to get from this experience: “Discovered. Everyone tells me I’m made for TV/movies. Doesn’t mean I’m out here hoping for that, but I would like to break into writing or acting.” Let’s keep this going. . .
  • He describes himself as a “good” lover, because he likes to take care of his lady first. I take back my beast comment and not because he takes care of her first (I’m down with that), but what man describes himself as just “good” in the bedroom? I do not see a Fantasy Suite in his future.
  • He doesn’t mind being romantic, but he does think it can show that you’re weak. RUN RACHEL, RUN!!


The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Mohit, 26

  • Lives in San Francisco.
  • Attended San Jose State University and graduated with a B.S. in Computer Science.
  • Attended Wayne State University (swimmer-graduated in 2012)-studied accounting.
  • Founder of (it’s linked below), which according to is LinkedIn account. . .

Questive, is an online platform that makes YouTube video lessons interactive. Questive adds a social aspect to learning by allowing users to contribute outlines, quiz questions and practice problems for lessons making educational video consumption into an engaging experience. Questive is a graduate company from the Founder Institute startup accelerator, Class of Silicon Valley Autumn 2014.

  • When asked what the wildest thing he has ever done in the bedroom: “Tabasco”. Holy shit. . .ouch!
  • Instagram seems to be his go-to for social media. I’m actually quite surprised he doesn’t make more noise on those platforms, considering his website. But Instagram does have almost 700 followers. He has no Twitter or I should say his Twitter account has been deactivated, which considering his Twitter handle was @MoMoney8181, I’m not too terribly upset about that. It could be he’s just waiting to start up a new account that goes along with the show. His Facebook account has no posts from this year, last post is from February 2016. . .but he only has 2 friends.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Matt, 32

  • Lives in Connecticut.
  • Works for a construction company.
  • Craziest place he has had sex: the balcony of a cruise ship and he has been on a Tinder date. 
  • Last posted on Facebook in 2015, but after a bit of creepy stalking, I did discover that he is a fan of SOA. . .so he may have moved up on my list. His Instagram account is set to private with about 400 followers.
  • Cannot find any other info on him. . .sorry BXTCHES.

The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Rob, 30

  • Law student from Houston
  • Sorry, there is no other information (interesting anyway) on this fella.


The Bachelorette 2017 | Meet the Cast | It's Reality BXTCHES |

Iggy, 30

  • Lives in Chicago.
  • Founder and CEO @ VOR Consulting, LLC.
  • Attended University of Redlands and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
  • He once got an erection in a board room meeting and he hates it when his date is dumb. Now, his favorite magazine is the Harvard Business Review. I don’t think he’s going far.
  • He does have a Twitter account and is an active re-tweeter (current), but only has 67 followers, Facebook is very sparse, but Instagram is up and running well with about 1200 followers.

From what I have read. . .researched. . .stalked. . .there will be a total of 31 hopefuls kicking off their luck with Rachel. Only 23 names have been released. ABC has not updated their site either, so we just gotta go with what they have given us. Now let’s talk about what’s interesting. I have 3 full seasons of this franchise under my belt now. . .Ben, Nick, and Jojo. I don’t know if I should say “I’m surprised”, because that may make me a bitch, but from my own processing of the contestants, it seems that it’s the male contestants that are going after the Bachelorette for the wrong reasons. . .okay, maybe not wrong, but certainly reasons that are to promote their own agenda, we do remember Robbie Hayes, right? From the 23 listed above:

  • 5 classify their occupation as a personal trainer and/or model
  • 1 is an actor and 1 who works in the industry
  • 3 have previously been on a reality show 
  • And we do have the 1 token musician

Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but I’m thinking these guys have something tucked away, just waiting to pull it out and strike when their iron heats. I mean, c’mon. . .two of them were on a reality show together and formed some sort of villainous relationship, so you know shit is going to go down with them two (Blake and Lucas). And continuing on with the interesting facts, out of the 23 listed contestants:

  • 8 live in LA
  • 4 live in Chicago
  • 6 live in Florida
  • 2 live in San Francisco

Where in the fuck is the representation? ABC really needed to go above and beyond to do this right. There is a ton of pressure on Rachel, if it goes wrong and ratings slip at all, that’s it, there will not ever be a Bachelor/ette of color again, because ABC can say they did it and the ratings just were not there. If there was ever a time to really vet the contestants, this was that time. It has to work with Rachel. . .Ben and Lauren just crushed us with their break-up and let’s face it, does anyone see Nick and Vanessa settling in for the long haul? Although they would be the couple that pulled through. Three of our suitors have something criminal in their background. C’mon ABC, our girl’s dad is a FEDERAL JUDGE, can you imagine those meet and greets? 

Rachel is 32 and the youngest guy is 26 (well three guys are 26). Nick was 36 and had more than one BXTCH 24 or younger. What the fuck ABC? I know Rachel isn’t gonna pick any guy that age because let’s face it, they have yet to learn the difference between a penis and a cock. . .but Nick was also never gonna pick Corinne, but she was there for somebody’s viewing pleasure. . .us BXTCHES like to look too, but I will thank you for the guys who have the look of taking this process serious, so hypocrit much? Yes, yes I am. By the way, the oldest guy hoping for love this season is 37.

This season of The Bachelorette kicks off on May 22nd, with the finale airing August 7th. Remember they are gonna pull a chunk of contestants from this particular season to head on over to Paradise, which premieres August 8th. 

Remember to follow us on:


The Bachelorette airs on ABC Mondays. . .7pm CENTRAL/8pm EASTERN
