Hannah B is the next Bachelorette

We all knew Hannah Brown was set to be the new Bachelorette but her official promo made it even more real.

After meeting five of the competing men on After the Final Rose, some fans were unsure about how the season would go due to her apprehension when Chris Harrison brought the men out. Luckily, she has a bunch of fans rooting her on and some that are rooting for, well, a different outcome. We found some fan reactions and they were the most dramatic reactions in Bachelor history…

CEG's fans chose the first ever #BachelorBracketOfLove winners

In other Bachelor/Bachelorette news, CEG had their very own March Madness bracket to find out the show’s most loved couple and we were super excited to announce the winners were Jade and Tanner! They sent along this very adorable acceptance speech with special guest, Emmy

TV Recap

The Hills: New Beginnings: Our ultimate reality TV dreams are coming true because The Hills is BACK! The Hills: New Beginnings which premieres June 25th on MTV is bringing back the beloved cast. Well, almost all of them as fan-favorite Lauren Conrad won’t be on the show but will be replaced with Mischa Barton. Don’t worry though because Audrina Patridge, Heidi and Spencer Pratt, Stephanie Pratt, Whitney Port-Rosenman, Frankie Delgado, Brody Jenner and even the one and only, Justin Bobby will be making epic returns. New additions to the cast will be Brandon Thomas Lee, Kaitlynn Carter, Jennifer Delgado, Ashley Wahler and Jason Wahler. We can’t help but listen to Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield on repeat until the big premiere and we are actually okay with that.

Game of Thrones: SPOILERS AHEAD!! It’s been two years since we were graced with the Season 7 finale and although winter in NYC is over, the only winter we care about IS. HERE. Basically everyone is reunited and a few key happenings went down during the premiere. A classic Winterfell council where Sansa (and many others) are pissed about Jon bending the knee to Danerys. Cersei sleeps with Euron Greyjoy to assumedly cover up the fact that she’s pregnant with her brother’s child…again. While those two are getting busy, Theon manages to rescue Yara from Euron’s fleet. Sam tells Jon he’s the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Awkward because he’s unknowingly been hooking up with his aunt. The crew who we thought died during the Ice Dragon attack, is alive (YAY)! Now they’re off to Winterfell after witnessing a frightening message from the Night King. And last, Jamie arrives at Winterfell and sees Bran (who is still…lurking in the courtyard by the end of the episode) for the first time since pushing him out a window Season 1.

The Chrisley's: Chase and Savannah Chrisley have ventured out of their Nashville home to take a shot at life in Los Angeles. With Todd’s reluctant approval and with some help from Nanny Faye, the duo hit the road to California (with Nanny Faye in the back seat) in their new show, Growing Up Chrisley. Making pit stops and memories along the way, Nanny Faye lives out her cowgirl dream while Savannah and Chase bicker their way across the country. Chase has his heart set on acting and Savannah hopes to continue making moves in the fashion industry. We hope LA treats them well and can’t wait to see what shenanigans they get into the rest of the season. Check out a tour of their LA house, MTV Cribs style.

A Double Shot At Love with Pauly D & Vinny: SPOILERS AHEAD! The BFFs of Jersey Shore are back on MTV with a Bachelor-style competition and brand new crop of 20 women who hope to win over the boys hearts. The bros are looking to settle down and potentially find that ride-or-die chick that can live their lifestyle. During the series premiere, we are introduced to the women as Vinny and Pauly D conspire to pull the "ultimate" prank - they make the first 10 women believe they are in the house to date DJ Pauly D, and the second set of 10 women, are introduced as being there to date Vinny. Throughout the first evening, we witness true Jersey Shore style entertainment with plenty of New York accents, drunkenness, hot tubs, some fighting words, and of course crawling on the ground like a cat. The episode ends in a cliffhanger that is set up like West Side Story where the two groups of girls stare each other down, checking out the other competition they had no idea existed.
