Bachelorette: Trimming the Fat
When I think about Monday night's show, all I remember is Chris crying, Chris stressing out and Chris' devil eyes. However, I knew Emily was going to keep him. And I think she was going to keep him even if he didn't stop the rose ceremony to beg for another chance. Emily likes Chris more than she likes John. And I didn't mind seeing John go home if only for the fact that he was overly confident. He had one decent date (not even good.) And dude all of a sudden thought he was the shiz.
But don't worry. Chris is going home this next week after the home town date. Home town dates are a big deal. You have to go meet someone's parents and have them tell you how they don't want their son/daughter to get his/her heart broken. I think it would be brutal to have to meet four sets of parents in one week.
But first, we need to talk about this last week. Honestly, the details are hazy. I just got my computer back after paying 53 bones to get the virus removed (thank you Ox!) Then it took me all day to get the thing plugged in correctly and back up and running. I am a little nervous to find more bachelorette photos on the internet. But for you friends, I roll the dice.
I thought Sean did a little better this week in bringing the romance. Remember him running through the streets of Prague yelling "Emmmmiiiiillllllllyyyyyy! Emmmmmmiiiiiiilllllllyyyyy!" And she just happened to be out there walking around like the lone ranger. As if the producers didn't tell him where she was....so staged. But I was happy to see him give her a more passionate kiss. I still am not convinced that he has a personality. He says all the right things and I know you ladies love him but he doesn't do it for me (or Emily.) He may be our next bachelor.
The Arie drama seemed a little weird to me. Anytime Chris Harrison show up to explain something to us, it feels a little like The Truman Show. Why is he breaking into "reality?" Do we really need Chris to give us the back story? The weirdest part of all is how we got that little interview of Emily by the producer who used to date Arie but we don't get any footage of Arie explaining himself to Emily. Instead, we get Chris Harrison's voiceover saying "Arie explained to Emily that they dated so long ago, he had forgotten about it or didn't think it was a big deal. Emily forgave him and they have moved on." Then we get footage of Arie telling Emily he loved her and the fireworks. It just all seemed kind of glossed over. Maybe Fleiss didn't want us to see some knock down drag out with Arie because he is going to win this thing and we need to respect him..or maybe he is going to be our next bachelor. Why do I have to dwell on these things...why can't I just enjoy the show?
I like Arie. I think he will win Emily's heart but sometimes he just has nothing real to say. And his eyes seem vacant. But they do have chemistry.
As for Jef with one F..still my favorite. I loved how he bought Ricky a little princess puppet..dude knows how to score points. But the scene in the library where Emily and Jef were having their puppets talk was cringe worthy. It brought back horrible bobble head doll memories (Chris.) I thought Jef was cooler than that. But I forgive him. I do love that Emily said no when he asked her if she would move in together before they got married. Speaking of Jef, I also appreciate how respectful he is of the Mormon church and that he admits he was raised Mormon and speaks highly of the Church even though he is not active right now.
Finally, Doug. Oh Doug. You are such a pansy. You were never confident enough with Emily. You never had the cajones to kiss Emily (until you laid one on her while she was dumping you.) And then you get in the limo and sob that you wanted a safe place for you and your son. I'm not sad to see you go.
What am I forgetting ladies? I can't wait for the hometown dates. I can't wait to see Jef's family and the first ever hometown date in UT!
