Things get thorny tonight on "After the Rose"
As I reported in a story I wrote for The Canadian Press, the most explosive part of tonight's show occurs when bachelor Brad Smith has to confront the woman he took right to the final two--Whitney. She kinda flipped out on the way to that final rose, making Brad's decision to choose Bianka all the easier.
Still, the dude could have been more gracious in this after hour. Brad gives Whitney a pretty hard time tonight, with host Tyler Harcott stepping in to referee.
At the taping, Harcott got into why Whitney felt driven to play the villain role. The two of them sat on the stage and all that was missing from this impromptu therapy session was a couch.
When I asked Harcott about it later he said he wanted to give the Calgary contestant an opportunity to explain herself. Brad, on the other hand, just seemed keen on throwing her under the bus. All I can say is Bianka, better not screw up.
Rogers still has not announced if there will be a second installment of this Canadian reality show makeover. The overnight, estimated audience for last week's episode, where Brad's choice was revealed, was 655,000 viewers across Canada.
