I liked South Africa. I didn't love South Africa. I guess a safari isn't my idea of a dream vacation--I kept thinking I can see giraffes and hippos at the zoo. The lions were pretty cool though. Brad sure liked them!
Let's start with Chantel's date. Let's just say it--Chantel has been packing on the pounds, bless her heart! If I were on the show, I would be be eating celery and working out every minute I wasn't on camera. I think she has put on at least 15 pounds since the show started taping. Did you all see her love handles hanging out the top of her teeny tiny shorts?
In her defense, I liked her thoughts on getting engaged. I think too many couples get engaged on the finale of the show with no real intention to get married. I think she knows if she accepts the ring--it means they are getting married. I don't mind Chantel.
I really do think Brad is the most genuine with Chantel. He is definitely the most relaxed around her. I totally laughed when she got the key to the fantasy suite and it was a tree house. I don't think I could, cough, get to know Brad, cough, in a tree--especially knowing the cameras and crew were camped out down below.
Let's talk about Emily's date. Emily came out looking like a million bucks. Could she be any cuter in the white cut off shorts and tall boots? I loved how she was ticked off for being left there right after Brad showed up. She was like "you had the whole damn day to prepare for this date..." and then he showed up on the elephant. Brad was really cute talking to Emily about her daughter. I really hope he was being sincere about how he knows she is a package deal.
I won't be mad if Brad doesn't pick Emily, but I will be mad if he breaks her heart.
Let's talk about Ashley's disaster date. Of course, it started with Ashley overcoming her fear of helicopters (zzzzzzz) and then they ended up at a picnic at a place the locals call God's Window. The scenery was beautiful but she totally blew it with Brad. Brad was practically begging her to tell him that she loved him, or at least had feelings for him, or would be willing to move to be near him. All she could talk about was her career and how it was the most important thing in her life. Why did she even come on the show? He even pulled her aside at the rose ceremony to give her one last chance to tell him she wanted to stay and she didn't. Then she acted surprised that he sent her packing.
I was shocked that Brad was trying so hard with her. Didn't you all think she was his third pick anyway? It was like Brad was begging her to tell him she loved him. I didn't get it. I'm glad she's gone.
I didn't love Chantel or Emily's dress at the rose ceremony. Either girl is a good pick though. It's not like Jake's season where he had Tenley and Sausage and I knew I would be so mad if he picked Sausage. I want him to pick Emily but I won't care if he picks Chantel. Maybe she is a better fit for him.
Next week is the Women Tell All. I can't wait to see Michelle back with her veiny boobs and her tough talk. Other than that, I don't know if it is worth watching. My sister Ashley is scared to death that Ashley is going to be the next Bachelorette. I say no way. Emily for sure. I'm not going to recap the WTA unless it is just too good to leave alone.
