it comes to TV Reality Shows like the Bachelor and Bachelorette I am a
shameless hussy. Not even the siren's call of work can deter me
from my Tivo and its latest edition of the Bachelor shows. (Bachelor

While I enjoyed the first three bachelors, I was over-the-moon in
reality heaven with The Bachelorette. Not only was Trista my
favorite (sorry Amanda) but she was a former St. Louis chica, which is
where I grew up. When she had a second life as the first
Bachelorette I was overjoyed.
While I thought Trista set the bar for class and elegance as the first
Bachelorette, I was immediately smitten with Bachelor Bob.
Not only did I dedicate an entire HairBoutique.com article to What
About Bob during his stint on the Bachelorette show, I was one of
the billions of women in the Universe that thought Bob was one hubba
hubba hunk of hot burning guy. Yeow.
Back in January I predicted in article about Bob that the world
would be hearing a lot more about Bob in the future. And I was
right. (Image above of Bachelor Bob & the 25 new
Bachelorettes - ABC/CRAIG SJODIN)
Not only was Bob
picked as Bachelor 4, his world has changed dramatically. He
has been a frequent guest of Oprah and many of the other TV talk
mavens. He has a brand spanking new website (very impressive
guys) and probably his own stalkers by now. Even better, Bob
breaks the "A" cycle of the former Bachelors who were named
Alex, Aaron and Andrew.
can only imagine my excitement when I was personally introduced to Jen
Negrette, the on-set hairstylist and makeup artist for
Trista and The Bachelorette show.
When Jen is not busy fluffing and buffing on the set, she designs
hair and is an inhouse education director at the Jose Eber salon in
Beverly Hills, California.
After a series of appointment mishaps, Jen and I finally hooked up
for a long phone chat about her work with Trista, Ryan and of course
Bob. (Image of Trista Rehn - The
Bachelorette - ABC/BOB D'AMICO - All rights reserved).
Even though Bob is about to premiere as the 4th Bachelor on ABC
on Wednesday, September 24, 2003, Jen could not really talk about
the show with me. Yes, it is true that she was required to sign
the infamous 5 million dollar gag contract which stipulates that she
not breathe a word of what happens on the Bachelor or Bachelorette
sets until after the last episode airs. (Image of Bob with some of the
new Bachelorettes above - ABC/CRAIG SJODIN).
Jen confirmed that the various bachelors and bachelorettes can't
even tell their families who their final choice is. Can you
imagine how hard those secrets must be to keep for so many weeks after
the shoot wraps?
Although Jen can officially discuss what happened with Trista and
Ryan and Bob from the Bachelorette she could only tell me that
"she did a little bit of the hair styling" for Bob's
show. She did say that professional hairstyling and makeup
services are only available to the various Bachelorettes and Bachelors
for the official rose ceremonies. The rest of the time the guys
and gals are on their own with their hair and makeup. This trend
was followed with Bachelor 4. This certainly explains why in some of
the episodes the various bachelorettes looked less finished than
during the major ceremonies, especially the last rose ceremony when
the final selection is made.
than telling me that Ryan stops by to have Jen cut his hair when he is
in the LA area, she was tight lipped about any other Bachelor 4
Jen said that she got to know Bob during the time that he was on
the Bachelorette show with Trista and Ryan and that he is "as
funny in person as he appeared on the show".
She also said that he "is a really great guy" and that
the bonding of the Bachelors from the Bachelorette show is
enduring. Many of the guys that formed friendships and bonds
have continued to "hang out and continue their

Jen commented that "what you see on the show" is what
really happens. The show is 100% real which is as a result of
all the hard work that goes into capturing the reality of the
She also had the absolute highest praise for the producers and
other production staff for the Bachelorette/Bachelor shows. Jen
reported that they work extremely hard to give the absolute most
realistic "reality" show that they can.
fan frenzy about Bachelor4 is already building and various message
boards across the web are already predicting which bachelorettes are
most likely to make it to the finals.
Although some of the new bachelorettes are considered to be
obviously not the right types for Bob, already there is a buzz about
Shae (image to the side - (ABC/CRAIG SJODIN), a stunningly
gorgeous firefighter and part time hairstylist from the South.
There is already fan comparison to the fact that Trista found true
love with firefighting Ryan and with a need to do her own hair and
makeup, hairstylist Shae definitely has an advantage. As you can
see from her image, she has a well managed coif.
Besides lots of early handicapping of the new bachelorettes, there
is rumors that one of the group dates has a shocking mini-rose
ceremony twist. The infamous Smoking Gun website also recently
released information that a lawsuit involving black widow spiders has
popped up in conjunction with the mansion used for the filming of
Bob is currently the man with the big 5 million dollar secret. For Bob
the dating is over and the waiting has just begun.
So what we all have to wait for is to find out if Bob found
love on Bachelor4? With whom? Did it help that his
beloved Mom was a surprise guest on the first Invitation show?
Did Bob's lovely Mom (photo to the side) help Bob find his true
With that gigantic gag order hanging over his lips, only Bob, the
ABC gods and a few others really know what happened in the final
So what are you waiting for? Set that Tivo and get ready for
season with Bob. You know where I'll be.
