Jen Schefft keeps her ring; Bob Guiney gets engaged; ABC gets two-timed.
So much Bachelor drama to report on; if only ABC could make what happens after the show the show. Bob Guiney will show up on The View today with Rebecca Budig, who’s on All My Children and who hosted an ABC Family special about the ABC reality show. They’ve been dating for a while, and were engaged just days ago, the night before they showed up together at the Daytime Emmys, Extra reports. The Bachelor 3 dumpee Jen Schefft isn’t dumping the ring she got from Andrew, even though the two are long broken up. Tonight on the After the Final Rose special, she’ll say, “Obviously, it’s a beautiful ring and Andrew said that he bought that for me and that it was mine to keep, so I’m gonna keep it.” Finally, if you’re going to go into Bachelor withdrawal after tonight’s show, ABC and creator Mike Fleiss have something to hold you over: another ABC dating series, this time called The Two Timer. Instead of one guy making out with multiple women who all know they’re competing for his affection, this new series will feature one guy making out with and/or dating perhaps multiple women every day, some of whom are oblivious. The star of the show, Chris, calls himself “The Chrisser,” according to ABC, and “sees himself as the ultimate player.”
