I have to thank everyone who shot me emails and notes regarding the craziness that is going on around some of our favorite Bachelor alumni. Big News Number One Travis Stork is dating American Idol winner Carrie Underwood. I’m sure the brother-in-law’s father is going to get a nice lump of coal in his stocking since the reality-show lovin’ couple wanted to keep their relationship on the super secret down low. Or maybe she was one of 12 people who tuned in to “The Doctors” and got some great advice on how to treat that rash that just doesn’t seem to want to go away. Personally, I feel they are boring and bland and routine people. I bet there’s a lot of staring and little conversation at their dinner date table.

Many have become household names, like Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Kellie Pickler, and — lest you think being a pretty blond singer is requisite for achieving post-reality show success — Dr. Waking up with a boom mic over your head is a drag, and having a camera crew track your every move — and then hand the footage over to editors and producers who can portray you however they choose — is exhausting and somewhat terrifying.
(Unless you are a Kardashian, and hence comfortable spending entire episodes on the size of Kim's butt or — apologies for the visual — Khloe's camel toe.) While reality show participants have different motivations for temporarily signing away their lives, once the show and their dirty laundry have aired, the impact on their individual careers, relationships and lifestyles is monumental.
He's still instantly recognizable as the first winner of Nashville Star, the country-themed singing competition that ran for five seasons on the USA Network.
After claiming victory over a strong challenger — third-place finisher Miranda Lambert — Jewell seemed destined for the gravy train. But reality-TV stardom proved short-lived even by Nashville's brutal standards.
