    Re: Season 12 - The Ladies?

    I'm bringing this over from the non-spoiler Media thread to speculate on what the condition could be. I have unspoilered the relevant sentence. Please do not discuss this in the non-spoilered thread.

    This is information from Mike Fleiss himself, so I assume there is truth to it . What on earth could fit Fleiss's description? Bolding added.

    ***The second paragraph may be a SPOILER**

    This may need to be moved.

    The Canadian Press: As the writer's strike winds down, reality TV continues to grow up

    "You've got to know everything you've already done," says Mike Fleiss, "Bachelor" executive producer. "If you haven't really been around every day, you won't know what's fresh and what's not. Much like a writer, you just have to sit there and think of new twists and gimmicks. Sometimes it just pops up in front of you."

    Such as when Fleiss learned that one of the female contestants on the upcoming 12th "Bachelor" season happened to have a "condition that has tremendous dramatic and comedic potential." It's a plot twist Fleiss says he would've never been able to think up on his own.

    "When reality TV works well, it's completely unpredictable," say Fleiss. "That's the beauty of it. It's not so pat. It's not so scripted. I think that's why audiences initially responded to it in the beginning."

    It is interesting that Fleiss is speaking out more about the show than he ever has in the past. He was intervied on-set prior to Bachelor: Rome, then the magazine interview after Bachelor 11, now a Bachelor 12 pre-show interview. PR need some spinning?
    Ariel--that's exactly what i said also--it has to be that--the only thing that they could say would have some comedic exploit--and it's terrible if he exploits that

    I moved my response and the spoiler tag:

    Re: Bachelor 12 Media Thread

    Now my mind in wandering about what it could be? I'll go to the spoiler thread for any theories.

    I honestly think it's tourettes--it's the only condition that could be exploited to be comical--although, it's horrible if he exploits the condition as such.

    Or Narcolepsy?
    (where one can suddenly fall asleep)

    And, since we've heard from Kristin on E! that the Rose Ceremonies were filmed between midnight and 5am ... this might be a possibility.

    Re: Season 12 - The Ladies?

    I just cant imagine what has both dramatic and comedic potential. Then again comedic by Fleiss's definition is not probably very funny to me. Here's a short list: stuttering, narcolepsy, extreme shyness, agorapobia - limited to being in large crowds, panic attacks. Oh, it wont be panic attacks. We already had that in Trista's season with Jamie. Amazon.com: Fear Is No Longer My Reality: Books: Jamie Blyth,Jenna Glatzer

    Jinx, hotlanta. You owe me a coke.

    could be--but i couldn't see that as being incredibly dramatic -- i could see it being comedic--but not so dramatic

    Re: Season 12 - The Ladies?

    I agree that is horrible of Fleiss to exploit a medical condition

    EXCEPT:

    really - what did she expect - that she would go on a reality show produced by Fleiss and he would not use it for comedic purposes?
