‘Bachelor’ episode missing the love

The ladies were as far from being on “Wings of Love” as possible during this week’s tell-all “Bachelor.”

Of course, the drama centered around Rozlyn Papa who, as we’ve been told numerous times, is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with one of the show’s producers. But Papa wasn’t about to sit there and take it. Instead, she tried to turn the tables and accused host Chris Harrison of hitting on that same producer’s wife.

The fiasco simply is an attempt to boost ratings and likely will end with Papa getting her own reality show. Just a guess, but it wouldn’t be the first time a detested reality TV contestant was rewarded with a shot at brief stardom.

The real surprise this week came from “American Idol.” What has been touted as the best season ever by judges, critics, fans and even contestants, fell flat on its face during the first live elimination rounds.

Simon Cowell said early on that this is the ladies’ year to win it, but The Man on the Couch and I disagree. Although the guys didn’t blow us away, they were by far better than the female singers. The prediction from our house: It’s going to come down to a battle between Andrew Garcia and Casey James with Aaron Kelly a possible dark horse if he can work through his nerves. Whatever the top five combination ends up being, it’s sure to be a battle worth watching.

I also must apologize. I put it on my calendar and then forgot to let you know that the new season of Maine’s “American Loggers” kicked off Feb. 19 on TLC. The good news is you haven’t missed all of the action.

To catch up, visit and while you’re there be sure to take the quiz to test your logging knowledge. With a family tradition of working in the woods, I’m not proud to say (and I may be disowned by my family) that I scored only 50 percent. Time to brush up on my timber tips.
