  • Episode Description
  • Dana gets selected to be on the reality show The Bachelor. At first she's sure her personality alone will be enough to entertain the guy, but Jim gives her advice on how to behave and what to say to the guy. Dana thinks he's full of crap, but after her date goes bad she tries Jim's recipe and scores a second date. She arranges with Cheryl to bring the bachelor over to their house for dinner, and Cheryl couldn't be more thrilled to be on national television with a remodeled house. Jim is also very proud that Dana only got so far thanks to him, but the situation quickly takes an unexpected turn when Jim accidentally overhears the bachelor saying Dana will be easy to bring to bed and then he'll dump her. Now he goes out of his way to save Dana and ends up scaring the guy away with stories about Dana being a psycho. Later he explains to her his behavior and says she'll meet someone who's good enough for her.moreless

    • Courtney Thorne-Smith and Doug Savant worked together on FOX's hit primetime soap "Melrose Place."

    • When this episode was first aired, "The Bachelor" was ABC's biggest hit, and a female version of the show was being produced to air later on in the season. "The Bachelorette" lead lady appeared as herself on this episode, a stunt pulled by ABC to promote both "According to Jim" and "The Bachelor."

    Trivia (1)

    • At the end of the episode when Dana & Jim are outside talking, you see Dana sit down and cross her legs. In the very next shot, her legs are not crossed anymore.
