Fabrice reveals his big secret tonight.

Fabrice reveals his big secret tonight.
One of the worst-kept secrets in reality television history will be revealed tonight on The Bachelorette 3, when Fabrice apparently interrupts a rose ceremony to confess something. As we were first informed by TVgasm, this “surprising announcement,” as ABC.com puts it, will apparently be that he doesn’t belong in a group of straight men vying for a woman’s affections. But in the off chance that the show doesn’t go all Boy Meets Boy on us, and Fabrice actually says something such as, “My real name is Bubba,” we’ll have to demand a refund. But least we’ll have all the drama related to this to look back on, like the tempest created when Washington Socialites took credit in a press release for TVgasm’s revelation of Fabrice’s true sexual orientation. That’s much more fun than producers planting a stupid actor on a ratings-deprived dating series starring a person no one liked the first time she was on this series.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
