Bachelorette season 8 has got America talking about southern sweetheart and bachelorette Emily Maynard.
If you don’t know Emily’s heart-touching story, about six years ago Emily was engaged to a race car driver and the love of her life, Ricky Hendrick. But just six months after their engagement, he passed away in a tragic plane crash. Days after Ricky’s death, Emily found out she was pregnant with his child. Emily named her now six-year-old daughter Josephine Reddick “Ricki” Henrick.
Four years after the death of Ricki’s father, Emily jumped back into the dating world and appeared on season 15 of The Bachelor. She turned out to be the winner on the show by winning over bachelor Brad Womack’s heart. Although the couple got engaged on the season finale, they eventually called off the wedding due to a number of reasons. But now, Emily’s back to find true love as Bachelorette Season 8’s woman to win over. (more…)
The newest season of the Bachelor kicked off this week and with it came a whole new batch sexy women pining for the attention of a very eligible single man. The newest bachelor is Sonoma winemaker Ben Flajnik and he was the runner up for last season’s Bachelorette. Ben, like all of the previous Bachelor contestants, has what one might call a nice body. This brings about the question, what do the contestants on these shows do to achieve such nice physiques?
Previous Bachelor contestants like Jake Pavelka, Jason Mesnick, Brad Womack and Kirk DeWindt have shared their workout secrets. Just in time for the New Year we can take a look at the bodies that have stolen hearts and maybe have our men steal a few of their workout tips. Here’s how past contestants have stayed fit:
Bachelorette season 5, Bachelor season 14
Jake worked with a trainer to get the best possible workout. He works on mainly isometric or biometric moves. This includes a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, leg lifts, and hurl throws. He also uses medicine balls and does a lot of weighted ab work to build bulk. For his cardio workouts, Jake usually chooses running or football on the beach. Jake was known for his rock hard abs while on the show, so apparently his hard work paid off. In an interview for DietsInReview.com, Jake told us that during his appearance on Dancing With the Stars he was consuming a 3800 calorie diet and still lost 10 pounds. So guys, maybe take your girlfriend up on those dance lessons! (more…)
Ali Fedotowsky discovered that dating many men under the watchful gaze of cameras can be stressful during this season of The Bachelorette. The 25-year-old has endured an emotional roller coaster, and it looks like it led to stress eating. “I was always hungry! I didn’t think much of it, but everyone noticed,” said Ali in OK! “I just wanted to eat more.” Keeping healthy eating habits can be difficult while traveling. Ali gained 15 pounds while jumping from city to city across Europe.
“I also wasn’t as active as I usually am at home.” As soon as filming ended, she knew she wanted to get back to a healthier lifestyle–and drop 10 pounds. To reach her weight-loss goal, Ali ate healthfully six days a week, but then gave her diet a break for one day. “I am good during the week, and one day I pig out,” she says. “I love pizza from Domino’s or Pizza Hut and a Diet Coke.”
At DietsInReview.com, we’ve always known what a smart, down-to-earth, and attractive guy Matt Johnson is. He’s been our resident fitness expert for more than a year, providing men and women of all backgrounds guidance for beginning or maintaining their own workout routine. He encourages us to push our limits, and now, he’s pushing some of his own.
He’s certainly the most eligible bachelor at DietsInReview.com, but will he become that on ABC’s The Bachelorette? Mathue will be joining 29 other single men on the fifth season of the popular reality show. This season stars Jillian Harris, who was unlucky in love on last season’s The Bachelor, starring Jason Mesnick. (more…)
If all of the skinny-minnies on the Bachelor have you feeling like there is no hope for an averaged-sized single guy or gal like yourself to find true love, think again. Fox network is just about to start casting contestants for its new dating reality show “More to Love.”
Women who aren’t as glitzy and tiny as the Bachelorette hopefuls will vie for one man, who is being labeled as a “Kevin James type,” by going on extravagant dates. One new category that is being added is having contestants undergo a makeover, but not the physical kind. Instead, producers of More to Love want to send the message to viewers as well as the contestants that you don’t have to be a size 2 to find love. Producers are adamant that the women will not skinny down in order to make them more enticing to their potential suitor. (more…)
