BACHELOR hopeful KYLIE LEWIS was eliminated on the first night and she's apparently not too happy about it. Kylie whined to TMZ that they told her to act like a ditz on the show, dye her hair from strawberry blonde to red, wear a pink dress instead of a purple one, and tweet Juan Pablo right after they met for the first time, making her look desperate. Kylie is an artist and says she'd drawn a picture of Juan which she planned to give him to make a good first impression, but producers ordered the lame tweet instead. And as if getting rejected wasn't bad enough, when Juan Pablo selected Kat to receive a rose, Kylie thought she heard her name, so she walked up to get the flower before she realized it was a mistake and, of course, producers chose to air it.
Monday's night's premiere of THE BACHELOR had its best debut rating in three years. Thanks to Juan Pablo, ratings were up 17 percent from last January. The premiere was seen by 8.4 million viewers to win the night in the ratings.

With the Polar Vortex covering much of the country, you'd think people in places like South Dakota would want to stay inside. That now seems like a good idea to Danielle Albers, of Sioux Falls. Thinking it would be a fun way to entertain the kids before supper, Danielle attempted to duplicate the experiment that demonstrates how a pot of boiling water turns to a cloud when tossed into the air in cold weather. Unfortunately, Danielle slipped mid-toss and the boiling hot water instead turned to large, yellow blisters and second- and third-degree burns on her back. If you're still thinking of trying the experiment Danielle says, "Don't do it."
