Can You Feel the Love Tonight?
I sure can! Tonight did not disappoint. I'm on a high. This is good tv folks. Ali + Roberto=true love. I think these two are going to make it. I really hope they don't let me down.
Roberto is so so cute. He really stepped it up tonight and showed some personality. He has the cutest mannerisms. I love how he grabs Ali and pulls her close or touches her nose or whispers "Be my wife." I was so so glad he didn't pick the yellow diamond. I was yelling "no" at the tv when Neil pulled that one out. I loved him sweating like crazy as he proposed. I knew when he had to go up all those stairs it wasn't going to be pretty. But you know what--I love Roberto even with sweat dripping down his face. I think it makes him cuter and more real.
And Ali is our best bachelorette yet. She is so happy all the time. As they were showing past clips tonight, I thought to myself, she is always smiling. I love that about her. And I love that she was honest with Chris and told him it was over before the rose ceremony. At the end of her date with Roberto, she said she didn't want to go on her date with Chris, and I thought "why would they give it away like that?"
Then next thing we know, she is knocking at Chris' door. She did the right thing.
And Chris. Poor darling Chris. He is such a class act.
I fell in love with him too tonight. He was so cute and hurt and kind when Ali broke up with him. He was also so classy on the After the Final Rose. He had nothing but kind things to say to Ali and I loved that he didn't come on the show demanding answers from her. He understood that simply, she had stronger feelings for someone else.
And the rainbow. I know I've grown tired of Chris talking about his mother--I'm a horrible person--but that rainbow melted my black heart. I might have even shed some tears (all the while I was nursing with three kids running and jumping all over me and I'm screaming at them to get out of the room!)
It was such good tv. Did you all love it as much as I did?
And to think that one week from tonight, we all move back into the bachelor pad. The sleaze that awaits us. I don't want to watch. I really don't. But we all know I will.
