Happy New Year, and let's begin the festivities off with "The Bachelor" because . . .  because . . . well, just because.

As always, one of the most interesting -- word casually dispensed -- aspects of "The B" are the first rejects who are sent back home on the bus. Here's the clip from last night, and honestly, it's worth watching the first person, who insists she is about to be attacked by a rat whilst on camera. I'm not kidding. These sorts of things you simply don't make up.

Meanwhile, I do hope Ben finds true love this season. Cheryl seems quite nice -- but apparently she's a grandmother, and already married.
