This episode of the Bachelorette was tough to watch. My heart hurt for Emily for having to decide who to send home. But she did the right thing. Sean is the perfect man but there was always something missing. He says the right things, he is tall, muscular and handsome, but the chemistry was off. He just never seemed into her enough with the kissing. I think that's a red flag. But I loved his letter to Ricki and I he was so classy in his departure.
I totally felt for him when he said he had so many emotions going on including being embarrassed. Because being dumped is embarrassing. Your pride takes a hit. And it's embarrassing to be on national tv and get dumped. Poor Sean. Too bad Roberto is our next Bachelor (US magazine is reporting) or Sean would be it.
I have to say, I was so glad Emily did not have the guys sleep over in the fantasy suite. Sammie was watching the show with me (yes, I'm an awesome mom...she is seven.) And I panicked when I saw the little envelope come out with the key. Luckily, Emily kept it classy on tv (not going to assume she wouldn't have slept with these guys in any other setting) but I was grateful to see the guys leaving the suite later that night. It was especially impressive that emily never even gave Arie the fantasy suite card...she knows she can't control herself around him.
Jef with one F's speech to Emily about the Fantasy Suite was so cute. I loved his statement that he and Emily would have their own fantasy suite every night and that he wanted to wait for the right time. I laughed out loud when he said they needed to "bridle their passions." That is such a Mormon phrase! haha. I really like Jef. He is the one for Emily. I hope Emily can see that. I liked his list of questions for her. He seems intelligent and honest and the most normal!
Arie looked really cute in his swim trunks but he really needs to come up with things to talk to Emily about. The non stop kissing gets old. I couldn't believe his answer when Emily asked him what his Tuesday morning looked like. He just doesn't live a normal life. He goes out to eat for every meal...goes out with friends every night...I can't see how he would fit into Emily's world. And then the part where Arie was telling Emily his philosophy on being a dad to Ricki and how he needs to start off being her buddy and ease into being her dad....I don't know folks...that just sounded ridiculous to me. There was a moment when I lost my mind for a moment and thought Emily might send Arie home, but I'm glad she didn't. I still like Arie more than Sean---but his kisses are gross:
I did love that bit at the very end of the show where we saw Arie trying over and over to get his video message to Emily right...that was hilarious.
Finally, this is the most trivial question of all...but is Emily wearing a hair piece (fake pony) at the rose ceremony? The pony tail just seems so blunt and thick..it doesn't seem like her own hair. She wore it for another rose ceremony this season as well.
Okay ladies, The Men Tell All is next week...no guarantees on a post. unless Kalen totally pisses me off. I usually can't stand that show. But the finale is going to be good! Do you think Emily will introduce Arie and Jef to Ricki? Who is going to win Emily's heart? Was Emily's pony tail fake? Everyone weigh in.
