    • I usually try to log most stories that put TV names in awards etc, just as I’ve logged AIMIA awards now or Nickelodeon Kids Choice etc. Cleo Bachelor isn’t exactly “industry” I grant you, but it’s been around so long that it sometimes serves as a watercooler as to who is on the rise. It was also a heads up for those who wanted to meet some stars in person. But ultimately, sometimes we need to have a bit of fun!
