    New Bachelor to Include a Big Twist

    Okay i found this on www.comingsoon.net

    Extra revealed Tuesday that the new Bachelor, New York Giants' Jesse Palmer, will have some help on the inside this time around when the 5th season of ABC's reality show debuts on April 7.

    The show has never tried this before, but it may make things a bit less confusing for Jesse. One of the 25 Bachelorettes is actually Palmer's best friend -- and she will act as a mole, tipping Palmer as to what the girls are really like when hes not around.

    "I'm hoping that this can work and I think I can find someone to spend the rest of my life with, so I'm excited," Palmer says. "Football is just a small party of my life; it doesn't define who I am or what I am."

    It will be exciting to try to figure out who his best friend is there...and I think it's a good idea to let him know what's going on when he's not around some of the ladies.

    That is a great idea. They should have done it sooner.

    Hmm a "small party?" Freudian slip there Jesse?

    I think it's an intriguing twist. During Bachelor Bob I often wished Bob could hear some of the stuff Leann was saying when he wasn't around.

    I can't wait for this show to get started again. While I don't really think Jesse Palmer is all that hot, I'm ready for the games to begin!!!!

    I think a really intriguing twist would be: Jesse picks a girl with whom he felt a "strong connection" with from the start. They date for a month or two after the show as Jesse (with help from ABC's cue people) proclaims he's "definitely in love." They do the promo rounds, everyone asks when they are going to get married. Jesse and Chosen say they are not in a rush and that they want to "enjoy being together" out of the media spotlight. A month after Chosen One episode has aired, and she and Jesse can finally be seen in public, Jesse is spotted by Enquirer paparazzi with a) a tall brunette, b) a sultry blonde, c) a former host of a TV talk show -- in compromising positions. Chosen One soon realizes that Jesse is not really committed to the idea of marriage and balks at his new contract with a) ABC Sportscasting, b) ESPN, c) the Howard Stern show, unhappily going about her life in a) the Midwest, b) L.A., c) Jersey, until one day she gets a call from Fleiss & Co., who have realized that certain something quality about her, and ask her to be the next Bachelorette. There, she meets a) a tall, handsome, fireman, b) a tall, unhandsome Bachelorette cast-off, c) a homeless guy who likes to travel a lot. Fans eat it up, but the ratings are low. No matter, Chosen One finally gets her revenge, er, soul mate, to be broadcast nationally when they tie the knot in a way over the top wedding... somewhere near a winery...

    I saw this on Extra over the weekend, and I thought, "What a great new twist." To be honest, I really lost interest in this series because it just seemed to be the same thing over and over again. It didn't help that the whole dating show genre was deluged with copycats that were basically the same formula.

    I think this new "twist" will help freshen up the series for me and get me watching again. Like a couple of you have mentioned, above, there's been so many times I wished the candidates of these dating shows could see how people are behaving behind their backs. It's about time!
