Sisters, virgins, (pants) tents, oh my! Tonight’s episode featured no fewer than three breakdowns from Ashley I., a sociopathic exit from our favorite looney tune, Ashley S., and NO TENT SEX. What the hell, ABC?? I feel betrayed by this season’s previews. Not cool.

We’re really getting in the groove of this beast, aren’t we? Last night brought us Jimmy Kimmel, squealing hogs, and a scene from Wedding Crashers reimagined as a PG movie.

Wildcard Points Winner: No one! Not one lady made a disparaging remark about Ashley S., who was on her best behavior. I guess it’s physics—for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. We’ll make next week’s wildcard points worth double to make up for it.

Well, well, well. Last night’s episode is the reason we watch this show. We’d like to thank God, ABC’s booze budget, and Ashley S.’s parents for making that episode possible. #soblessed

Season 19, Episode 1: Points

Gas up the tractor, baby. We’re off and running. I’d like to extend a hearty welcome to all you first-time Bach Fantasy players and grizzled veterans alike. Welcome home. We have wine and we have snark. Mummy loves you.

How ’bout them limo intros? I’m never sure how each crop of contestants is going to top the last, and yet ABC somehow keeps flipping over rocks and scouring bar bathrooms to find the kookiest kooks within the confines of these United States.

One bit of housekeeping before we get to the points: we accidentally omitted three women from yesterday’s scoring template. We caught it about halfway through last’s night show and updated it then. If you downloaded it before roughly 8 p.m. central time last night (or you noticed three ladies were missing from your line-up in your scorecard), you can re-download the correct version here. Apologies!

We also announced the Wildcard Points category on Twitter last night: First Gal to Make a Pun About Farming won 20 points. Hats off to Kaitlyn; something tells us we’d get along.

  • Alissa: 30 points
    • Giving Chris a gift (a seatbelt) (5 points)
    • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)

Welcome to “The Bachelor” Fantasy League, Season 19

Welcome back for our third season of BachFantasy! After a few months of productive Monday evenings, we’re back and ready to let The Bachelor suck the life out of us all over again. This season’s crop of bachelorettes (farmer pun absolutely intended—buckle up and get used to it) is full of freshly spray-tanned ladies who all lied about their willingness to move to Iowa in the name of love.

If you’re new to BachFantasy, or could use a little refresher on how this works, keep reading. Otherwise, we’ll see you back here on January 6th with Episode 1 points. (Wish you were watching along with us each week? Follow us on Facebook and Twitter; we live tweet each episode!)

How Our Bachelor Fantasy League Works

1) Gather your “Bachelor”-loving friends and choose a League Commissioner. The Commissioner is responsible for tallying league members’ points each week and sharing the standings with the league.

2) Choose how your league is going to run your draft (read more on that below) and submit your contestant picks to your league commissioner.

3) Watch “The Bachelor” every Monday night, beginning January 5th on ABC.

4) Visit this blog every Tuesday morning to see how each of your contestants scored. The league commissioner should add up the point totals for each team in order to figure out the weekly rankings.

Calling all league commissioners: click here to download a BachFantasy scoring template.

The Draft

You have a few options when it comes to drafting your Bachelor fantasy league team team of five contestants. Click here to read more about how to draft your team.

Mid-season Draft (Brand New!)

This season, our league is trying something new to spice it up. When there are 10 ladies left, you’ll have the option to trade one of your players or replace an ousted player with one of the remaining bachelorettes.

For example, if my team is down to two ladies, I can draft one of the remaining ten to my team for a new total of three active players. Or, if I still have a full team of five, I can trade one of my players for a bachelorette I think has a better chance of winning. Spicy, no?

Points Categories

You’ll be rewarded for drafting bold contestants but more so for drafting contestants who go the distance. Points are divided into Phrases, Actions, and Roses.

We’ve added a new wildcard point category to keep things fresh throughout the season!

Phrases

  • Talking about her parents’ relationship (5 points)
  • Mentioning her kid (5 points)
  • Mentioning a deceased loved one (10 points)

  • Saying “I’m falling for you” to Chris or “I’m falling for him” to the camera (20 points)
  • Saying “I love you” to Chris (30 points)
  • Telling Chris that someone in the house “is not here for the right reasons” (30 points)

Actions

  • Interrupting someone’s one-on-one time (5 points)
  • Bonus: using the phrase “steal Chris away” during said interruption (5 points)
  • Dancing at a concert (5 points)
  • Singing/playing an instrument for Chris (5 points)
  • Hot tubbing (5 points)

    • Must actually see moisture fall
  • Having a secret boyfriend at home (25 points)
  • Having a body part blurred out any point (30 points)

  • Leaving the show early on his own accord (30 points)
  • Drafting the next Bachelorette on your team (40 points)
  • Coming back to the show to beg for another chance (50 points)

Roses

  • Being selected to go on a one-on-one date (20 points)
  • Getting the rose to stay another week (25 points)

  • Making it to Hometown Dates (50 points)
  • Accepting the Fantasy Suite (75 points)
  • Refusing the Fantasy Suite (-75 points)
  • Winning the Final Rose (100 points)

Wildcard Points (Brand New!)

Another addition we’re making this season is a wildcard point category. Each week, we’ll announce the upcoming wildcard category for the week. It will change weekly and is only awarded to one lady per episode. For example, one wildcard category might be: the first lady to be shown on camera in a bikini this week gets 40 points.

Scoring

We’ll score each episode for you and post each contestant’s scores every Tuesday morning. Be sure to check back every Tuesday to see how your teams are stacking up against one another! We’ll also be posting an episode recap for those of you can’t get enough Bach.

Will you be joining us this season? Let us know your league or individual team name in the comments!
