Reality TV People News - May 2003
Finally, a couple from a dating show that does things together in public after the show is over. The Boston Herald 'Inside Track' reports that Andrew Firestone, star of ABC's The Bachelor, and his chosen partner Jen Schefft attended the Indianapolis 500 together over Memorial Day weekend. According to the story, it was the first time Firestone, whose family helped pioneer auto racing, had ever attended the race.
We have to give The Bachelor's Jen Schefft credit for optimism. Even though none of the couples from the previous editions of reality dating shows have ended up getting married so far, the Associated Press reports that Jen and her Bachelor mate, Andrew Firestone, discussed having children in an interview that will appear in the June 2 issue of US Weekly.
This is how fame goes in reality TV: one day, all of America wants to see you -- the next day, you're lucky to be speaking at your former high school.

In an article last week, we noted that Trista Rehn, the star of ABC's The Bachelorette, and her chosen beau Ryan Sutter were appearing separately during the weekend and wondered if there was any deeper significance to their separate appearances. In response, a RealityTVWorld.com tipster has reported that Trista and Ryan are indeed still together in Aspen, CO, and still planning their wedding.
Maybe it's just the life of a media celebrity, or maybe it really does mean something. In the wake of the speculation about the wedding plans of Trista Rehn, star of ABC's The Bachelorette, and her selected beau Ryan Sutter, we expected that they might do a joint appearance. Sort of like J-Lo and Ben at the Boston Red Sox game last weekend. But ...
