Tonight I watched the show with my friend Mandee. Well, not in person--we watched it at our own homes and texted each other throughout the show. It was pretty much a running dialogue on our phones and I laughed so hard a couple times that I think I was starting to annoy Sam. So Mandee forgive me because I'm just going to be saying all the same stuff I already texted you.
I have to start by saying I loved Chris Harrison's cardigan at the beginning. I usually hate cardis on men but on Chris, it worked.
Okay, let's talk about Chantel. She is my current favorite. I think she is good for Brad. She has a little fire. Loved the cabana scene. But is anyone else sick of the producers putting every girl on a date where she has to face her biggest fear? I would never ever tell the producers that I am terrified of birds or I guarantee Brad and I would end up at an aviary.
I actually liked the group date. My cousin Liz has a thing for Dr. Drew so I couldn't help but think about her the entire time. But I'm sorry, Liz, Dr. Drew? I just don't see it!
Britt brought her A game to the Dr. Drew date. I wasn't loving her heart hoops (and she desperately needs a hair cut) but she got it on with Brad. She might just be the dark horse this season. Brad apparently loves her. My friend Mandee commented about how tiny her bum is. She is a toothpick. And the worst is--she is a food and wine critic. If I had that job, I would be 300 pounds, no questions asked.
The Dr. Drew after party was where Ashley H. took a train to crazy town. I don't think she's coming back folks. From her rant in the hot tub to her sneaking up on Brad and Britt to her tear-filled complaint to Brad the next day, she is on an emotional roller-coaster. I understand that the dynamics of the show bring out every girl's emotional side, but you've got to pull it together in front of Brad. He just saw the next 50 years pass before his eyes and it wasn't pretty. Can you even imagine if you were one of Ashley's dental patients? Would you not be on the horn first thing tomorrow morning trying to find another dentist? Me too.
Alright. Michelle. Have I mentioned how annoying she is? "It is MY day. It is MY time. She is taking MY TIME on MY DAY!" Can you even picture how Bridezilla she had to have been on her wedding day with the MY DAY business? I loved how Chantel called her out about causing a scene on the first group date. Maybe that's why I like Chantel so much.
I could seriously spend the rest of this post bagging on Michelle. I don't have to. You all get it. She totally sucks. She is always acting sooo tough to the camera in her monologues and then so different with Brad. Don't get me started on the black eye....I honestly couldn't watch her time in the pool with Brad. When I see Brad with Michelle, it makes me question his judgement. Yes, she's pretty. She is also Crazy.Like.A.Fox.
I fast forwarded through the therapist. Someone tell me if anything good happened with him. Heaven help us if he is going to be a regular thing. Apparently, Fleiss didn't get my letter last week.
I kind of thought the little picnic with Emily was hokey. He clearly really likes her. She is a perfect little Barbie doll and so nice. I just honestly don't know if she has enough umph for him you know? Did you all love her 6 inch gold hooker shoes?
I was so embarrassed for Shawntel (not Chantel!) with her 1-2-3 leap into Brad's arms re-enactment. My friend Heidi thinks she looks just like Hillary Swank. Good call.
I'm so glad Brad sent home the ugly bartender Stacey (who is also a cheater.) Sheesh--how did she stick around this long? I was kind of sad to see Meghan go. She seemed the most normal to me with the best personality but we all know that ain't what it's about. I was shocked that Lisa (from Kansas) with the horrible hair got a rose.
Next week, we are going to Vegas. I hate Vegas. And seriously Fleiss, we are doing the Broadway show thing again? We've got to get some new date ideas and venues. We've been using that same pool on top of the building for years now.
And the racetrack? Good grief. Poor Emily. They are playing her like a fiddle. It is such good tv. I don't know how I'm going to sleep this week!
