    Major Network Admits to Misleading Advertising

    Los Angeles, CA
    May 13, 2009

    Executives of the ABC network, in response to charges by tabloid media, have confirmed that promotional advertisements for the soon-to-premier new season of its popular Bachelorette show were filmed using professional actors rather than the actual contestants on the show.

    Asked if the decision was in response to internet sleuthers’ identification of finalists Melissa and Molly prior to the airing of the first episode of last season’s The Bachelor, starring Jason Mesnick, Filbert Norris, Chief of Public Relations for the network, angrily responded, “That is categorically untrue! Our decision to film the promos using actors was based on two factors: viewer enjoyment and reduced production costs.”

    Mr. Norris elaborated, “First of all, our internal surveys showed that the vast majority of our millions of viewers watch the show for two reasons: to share in the beautiful unfolding of a true romance and to thrill at the discovery of the mating choices our Bachelor or Bachelorette makes during each episode. For them, it is devastating to be watching the show, see a contestant and recognize him or her from previews of upcoming installments. They want the mystery!”

    He continued, “Actually, for the previews of the very first episode we did utilize actual footage from filming of the show, but tried to use mainly “long shots” and large group photos, and to slightly blur faces that may be recognizable. What we then did was audition professional actors who best matched the 6 or 8 guys we had scripted to go furthest in the show.

    “We set up “simulated” date situations, such as fantasy dates, hometown visits and the like. Matching our actors with the “star” (it would be too difficult to fake him/her since they are so familiar to viewers from pre-show publicity stills), we filmed as many romantic and adventurous scenes as possible and edited these into footage for preview use throughout the season. And as a added benefit, we feel that the practice really helped make Jill's perfomances with the 'real' cast much more realistic looking.

    “This has been a godsend to us. We have saved a ton of money in production costs. With pro actors we can just tell them what to do and say, go through a rehearsal or two, and shoot the scene. With the actual contestants, you have no idea how many hours of cajoling, berating and threatening are required to get them to play their parts properly. And the savings in liquor costs! Sometimes we’d have to get five or six margaritas into them (the actual contestants) before they’d start acting like morons.”

    Asked if he weren’t just the tiniest bit smug about having thwarted the detecting efforts of some of the show’s more avid followers Mr. Norris chortled: “Let's see how they like those FRECKLES” The fifth installment of The Bachelorette, starring the network's third choice for the role, Jillian Harris, premiers Monday, May 18 on ABC.

    Wonderful, BritLit! (Hope you didn't give them ideas for the future.) Dorothy Parker would be proud of you.

    What?!! "actors who best matched the 6 or 8 guys we had scripted to go furthest in the show."

    Is there really any reality in the Bachelorette after all!! Is Jillian told the likely final 6 or 8 BEFORE the show even starts?

    FORTers help!!

    Brit is a wonderful writer who always makes us laugh. Brit just made up this press release, it isn't true. TPTB do have a hand in several things on the show, but this is not a real article. The promos are from the real guys on her show, we have the bios & they can be identified in the promos. You will see several of these by Brit & probably by a few others during this season. Just laugh & enjoy, they'll be posted in this thread "Fun with the Bachelorette.
