Jean-Luc Bilodeau Talks “Baby Daddy” Season 5 – Read the Q&A! (@jlblives)

Baby Daddyis back on ABC Family this summer for afifth season and CelebSecrets4U got the scoop on what you can expect from the hit comedy series straight from the baby daddy himself,Jean-Luc Bilodeau.

In our interview, Jean-Luc talks about what we can expect from season five, playing a father on television, Riley’s decision, and whether he’s Team Ben or Team Danny. He also tells us that he wishes he had Ben’s bar tending skills!

In tonight’s episode titled It Takes A Village Idiot, Bonnie, Danny, Riley and Tucker are tired of Ben always passing Emma off on them every time something better comes along, so when Ben insists he can do it all by himself without their help, they go on strike. Without his support system, a frazzled Ben brings Emma along on his dates and his shift at the bar. Forced to rely on the very limited kindness of strangers, will Ben finally swallow his pride and admit how much he needs everyone?

Bonnie and Danny take a cooking class with her idol, Tommy Kwan (Brian Tee), but when Danny wins the chance to be Tommys guest sous chef, Bonnie is determined to prove shes the better cook.

Meanwhile, Tucker advises Riley to make up a fake boyfriend in order to fix her friendship with Danny.

Check out a preview from tonight’s episode + the full Q&A below.

CS4U: Has your character, Ben, being a father, affected your opinion at all about wanting to have kids in the future?

Jean-Luc Bilodeau: “Yes, definitely. Ive wanted to have a big family so this drove it into my head that its not an easy process like I thought it would be. Im just one of two, so, my family is pretty small and when I think of family life, Im just used to having one other sibling around. My parents didnt have too hard of a job raising us, but Ive always wanted to have a big group, a little army of children [laughs].

So, just raising one child on the show, its difficult even though I dont have to do any of the hard work like change diapers or calm them down really. I just get them when theyre happy and then when theyre not, we just change them out for the other twin. Its still difficult, and its fun, but Im still very interested in having a big family one day.”

CS4U: Do you think people keep watching the show over the years is because its really funny or because they want to see whether Ben and Riley get together?

Jean-Luc Bilodeau:”I think people fall into a routine. Our show is funny and I think thats what brings most of our viewers. They want to see where this love triangle ends up. They want to see how my relationship with Emma grows and how our relationship changes over time as she gets older and I become more mature.

So, I just think its a routine. I feel like for the same reason people watch Friends. You tuned in every week not because you necessarily needed to see where the storyline was going, but you just wanted to laugh a little bit for half an hour and watch people you enjoy and watch likable, happy people. I think our show is very happy, and people like to see that. Its easy to turn it on every Wednesday and laugh a little bit.”

Cs4U: What do you think about Rileys decision?

Jean-Luc Bilodeau: “You know what? Shes got to pick someone. You know what I mean? [Laughs]. Shes got to get some decisions made here because its getting to the point where I think fans start turning on her because shes played with Ben and Dannys feelings a little bit. Its not her fault. She likes who she likes and she loves who she loves, but I think that whoever she chooses it should be soon, and Im glad shes choosing someone. The character she doesnt choose will leave him up to some future and fun storylines of dating and kind of separating himself from the love triangle. So, Im excited to see what happens in this coming season for sure.”

Cs4U:Are you team Ben or team Danny?

Jean-Luc Bilodeau: “Im team Ben 100% and I used to say I was team Danny, but Im growing and maturing with the character as well. As Ben has gotten older, hes making wiser decisions and hes turning into a good man, and I think Ben deserves a great girl like Riley and I think that shes the perfect mom figure for Emma and she would definitely step up to the plate.

So, I think Ben deserves Riley. I obviously have a more emotional connection with Ben than I do Danny. I just think hes got a good head on his shoulders. He doesnt play professional hockey, but he works at a bar and makes good tips. Hes a good guy. Im definitely team Ben.”

Cs4U: Do you have Bens bartending skills?

Jean-Luc Bilodeau: “Yes, I do. No [laughs]. Well, for the show, they got me a Flair Bartending coach. So, I had to learn all those crazy moves you see in the show. And I practice once in a while in some of my free time. Its actually really fun. I would love to actually go and bartend somewhere just for the weekend or something and do some cross promotion with Baby Daddy. I think it would be cool.

Its interesting to me. I dont know how to do many drinks. Im not good with mixology, but I can definitely throw the bottles around. So, I can make a killer vodka soda because its two ingredients [laughs].”

CS4U: What should we look forward to this season of Baby Daddy?

Jean-Luc Bilodeau: “A lot of people are looking forward to see what happens with the love triangle for sure. Theres definitely some advances taken by our good old Chelsea Kane, Riley. Shes narrowing down her search between the two boys and I think people are really interested to see whats going to happen with that.

Our show is day-to-day. Its like Seinfeld where its really about nothing. Its about this family who lives together and fights and loves together and raises a kid. What weve been doing for the last four seasons is just making funny jokes, telling true stories and showing great relationships and chemistry on screen.

Its going to be another funny season. Like I said, theres going to be a huge turn in the love triangle. Emma is still alive, which is good. Shes growing up and getting older which is fun to see that transition and watch her mature along with her father, Ben. So, its still Baby Daddy [laughs].”
