Muppets on ABC's The Bachelorette in May

  1. Not exactly what I expected to read today, but the main spoiler guy for ABC's "reality" dating show "The Bachelorette" posted on twitter yesterday that the Muppets will be making an appearance during a date that will be filmed this Saturday. He didn't say which Muppets will be there.

    He is legit, so this is happening, IMO. Kind of a bizarre place for them to pop up, but this year's Bachelorette has a young daughter, so maybe that is the reason? Could be fun, though!

    Season premieres mid-May. Since they just started taping this week, I would assume this date would air during the 2nd episode.

    WOW...that's an ODD place to see them...I would assume that it would be Piggy...weird.

    And Kermit?
  4. It is really strange. Granted, the Muppets are for all ages, but this is kind of out there.

    Maybe Piggy will karate chop some of the lamer contestants, particularly the ones with girlfriends back home, weird habits, etc. She has better judgement than most of these leads do, ha! :D

    ETA: The early part of the season is apparently being filmed in Charlotte, NC, so if any Muppetteer ever makes mention of traveling that way this week, that would give us a clue.

    Grrr. I really don't like that show, but I do like that ABC/Disney likes the Muppets and they're giving them top-level exposure. That's what I'll take from this. ;)

    I agree. I don't need to watch an intelligence-insulting Reality show to see the Muppets. :: puts in Muppet Show DVD:: :cool:

    I mean that's great their back in the public eye but if you really wanna get them back back why not bring back The Muppet Show? I mean there's rumors going around anyways why not just go for it!

    actually if they're already doing a movie sequel there probably wouldn't be time yet to get another series off the ground. at least right now

    Yeah but the sequel probably won't be out till 2014. I think the series would do very well if they just put it on at a decent time slot. Besides that would just give them even more publicity when the sequel does come out. Even if we don't get a Muppet show I hope we seem them in a lot more TV specials especially around the holidays.

    Charlotte, hey? Shoot, I'm only about an hour and a half from there. Wish I knew when they were filming so I could go stalk some Muppeteers. Er, I mean, offer some heartfelt fan support, yes, that's what I meant. ;)

    I have to agree with both these statements. I don't particularly like the Muppet appearances that feel forced, I think it only cheapens them. Such as when a reality show features another reality show celeb. Hollywood must think we's so dumb.

    But on the other hand it does keep the exposure up and possibly reach another audience until the next movie - or even until they have their own show that keeps them in the public eye on a weekly basis. And while I don't particularly care for shows like The Bachelor or Bachelorette I think we'll just have to take what we can get for now. :smirk:

    The wonder of the internet is that we won't have to sit and actually watch the show. We can just pick out clips the next morning! :D

  16. Hi gang! Don't know where the date occurred, but according to Reality Steve, it was a group date w/13 guys. The lead's daughter was there (but apparently she was kept separate from the guys).

    Piggy and Kermit were the Muppets in attendance for whatever happened.

    I'm happy they are getting more publicity, but I still find this really weird! I can't imagine it being as bad as the Piggy/Chelsea Handler trainwreck though, so in that respect, I guess I'm okay with this, haha.

    The fact they're getting exposure is indeed a good thing and all, but Bachelor/Bachelorette is such a toxic program. Even a step above most reality TV shows. I don't know why it all the sudden became popular again, since it was actually about to completely disappear years ago (even Family Guy stated in it's first season after the comeback that it was "once a hit show").

    I'm going to wait and see if they post this online. Even Muppets wouldn't get me to watch this program.

    i'll see it online as well. or maybe have it on mute until i see the muppets show up. i do have to say it seems strange to me, i don't get how they would even fit them in to this

    but i don't think the chelsea interview was that bad, i thought eric handled it great, actually. ONLY miss piggy could have attempted chelsea, because she has the ability to snap back like that

    I'll just catch the clip of it online on youtube or something. I refuse to torture myself through that whole show not knowing when they'd show up. I just can't do it! XP

    And I just wanna say The Muppets are way tooooooooo good to be on that show!
