The Bachelor Farmer Chris Soules E4 @c_soules

harrison-bachelorChris Harrison informs the girls that they will be two group dates and one, one on one date. However the stakes will become higher and things will be different because Chris’ three sisters will be deciding for their brother who will be the one chosen for the one on one date. Clearly this is an important date because it’s all about impressing the family since we have seen in bachelor past that families have broken potential relationships. Despite this, the girls were cheering away.

While the girls are cheering about this I don’t think that they should be happy so quickly because family members have a tendency of being much more critical on who is best for their relative than the actual person Chris may be pursuing.

Chris drops off the first date card and the group date for the first group date is as follows: Kaitlyn, Ashley S., Ashley I., Juelya, Samantha, McKenzie and Kelsey.

On the group date they go out to a lake and Chris suggest just to hang out and “be yourself” getting away from the fancy stuff. Kelsey had a lot of things to say about this date, she thought the girls stripping down were tacky and disrespectful. And its’ funny because Ashley I. is a virgin and she was the first one to strip off her clothes.

Back at the house where the rest of the girls are, get a knock on the door and the sisters come in to greet them and talk to them.

Reading into this episode a bit more, I believe that the reason why the girls that were chosen for the group date was because Chris’ sisters were not interested in meeting them while the girls that were at the house were the ones with the most potential. Not sure at this point but this is what it seems.

Jillian, (Ms exercise buff), who was sleeping out in the back was awaked by one of the other girls so she can meet Chris’ sisters and the sisters call each girl one by one asking them some pretty tough questions. The first one up is Whitney, the fertility nurse and she’s definitely kissing ass. There’s something about Whitney that’s awkward and not natural in her conversations or demeanor, almost forced and phony.

Next one that goes in is Britt who had the first kiss in the house the night that she met Chris and also the first impression rose.

They also spoke to Becca and Jade who currently lives out in Los Angeles along with Jillian I’m not sure what the sisters are thinking at this point who deserves the one on one I’m hoping that it’s Britt because I think Britt has a better connection with Chris than the rest of the ladies.

Back on the group date, Kelsey was none too happy having to hang out with a bunch of tacky girls and what she called the lake a “dingy pond”. She was feeling as though she felt forced to have fun, tired of fake smiling while trying to just enjoy this hellhole. To make matters worse while she’s being interviewed she makes a sarcastic comment about Chris’s surprise that they are going to camp there and while she’s talking she gets stung by a bee. kelsey complaining on date

Back at the house, Chris’ sisters are still talking to each girl, and when it’s Carly turn she discusses her last relationship, how the guy was not very nice to her, didn’t touch her or reciprocate feelings (but she stayed with him for two years). I don’t know if she was in abusive relationship, she didn’t get into details and the same with Juelia who went into the “my husband killed himself” spiel which begs the question, are these women viable to be in a long term relationship or do they need some healing before they move on to someone else.

Later in the evening, after all of the interviews are over the date card arrives announcing the choice of the one on one date and Jade was chosen. It’s funny that they picked her, being that she was not really any kind of contender from the beginning and I still don’t believe that there is some kind of connection but we will find out when Chris has the surprise one on one date with her.

All the while the girls on the group date, now camping, have not realized they missed out on meeting Chris’ sister which some had mentioned they are looking forward to meeting. At this point I’m pretty convinced these girls were deliberately left out.

During camping Ashley I. continue to push herself on Chris and not only being a virgin she doesn’t look like she knows how to kiss very well either.

After Ashley S. monopolized Chris’ time with her insanity episodes, as other girls get their one on one time, Chris comes back and gives Kaitlyn the rose. This not only upsets Ashley I., in her mind their make out session should have been enough to garner her a rose.

Here is the thing with these women on this show, just because a man kisses you it doesn’t mean they are into you. These women seem very confused and I think it’s even affecting when you’re living in a confined area with no technology around with the exception of the other woman who are dating the same man in the house. Kissing doesn’t guarantee a rose that is for sure as we have seen in this season so far. Chris is probably a guy who didn’t date much. I mean he’s living in a small town with not that many people in it. And none of these girls have thought of that. They are living in the moment with the cameras and spotlight. It’s the test of the determination to stay in the relationship when there are no cameras and miles of farmland.

So the girls come back from their camping date and find out that the sisters had come to see them and have chosen who will go on the one on one date with Chris and that choice was Jade. Ashley I. who seems to have so much to say and so much “vested” in what she thinks is a relationship with Chris was not a very happy person. Bad enough she’s really insecure, now she can’t even make an impression on his sisters to convince them that she’s the one that should marry Chris in the end.

bachelor-jade and chris dateChris’ date with Jade seemed extremely boring so to ask me if I paid attention while Disney took advantage to promote Cinderella, I think the fast forward button came in handy for this part. During the date they were waltzing to the Cinderella movie and then you come to realize that this isn’t about the date but this is about promoting the movie.  Chris mentions that it was pretty intense of course it is you’re in a romantic setting you have a whole August replaying your dancing it’s midnight it’s all the intensity of what Cinderella is supposed to be. He did give her the rose and mentioned he may have overlooked or a little bit.

The group date card arrives and reads the following names:

Nikki, Jillian, Whitney, Carly, Britt and Becca. There are also large boxes waiting for them and when they open them up, wedding dresses are found inside each box bearing their name  on each one.

As the episode drones on, the group dates consist of ridiculous challenges where the girls are dressed up in cheap wedding dresses with the winner having one on one time with Chris. Without missing a beat, the challenge has a cause for MS. I really wish that these people with separate good causes with ridiculousness.  Jillian being the workout buff it didn’t surprise me that she was ahead of the game since every scene with ther booty shorts and the black cover that followed her all around, all she did at the house was work out. However if she does get a one-to-one with Chris, he will probably find out that she’s not a match for him anyway, and thankfully she won.

During the date Chris initially says that she’s one of the top three contenders then during the date she starts running her mouth and it’s an entirely different story. Just as I suspected they were totally on opposite ends of the universe. Jillian seems to be a great catch, but she would need someone as outgoing and athletic fit as she is. Chris is not the match for her and living on a farm won’t last very long with her either. jillian showing muscles

As the one on one date went on, Chris’ mood seems to change and so does the look on his face, settling in that there’s no romantic connection and what seemed to be the top contender is now on road to the limo heading back home.

Even as Chris teasingly lifts the rose and explains there isn’t a connection, she does the nightmare thing that no woman should do is try to convince him otherwise. It was clear, watching this date unfold and the lack of attraction that was happening between the two, he did the right thing letting her go. They are two entirely different people it’s just not going to work out and he’s doing the right thing by letting her go.

The ceremony night begins and before Chris makes his final choices,  every woman takes advantage during the cocktail party to grab him and express their interest or their vested interest in this process accompanied with silly tactics that consists of blindfolds, fruit and chocolates.

Ashley I., another annoying tirade, was desperate to tell Chris that she’s a virgin in the hopes this will give her an upper hand on a relationship she things is happening between them. Her attempt gives her a temporary reprieve.

ashley i cryingBut after her make out session, thinking this has solidified some dynamic between them she spazzes out over another make out session she witnesses and starts her badger of tears. You know it takes a lot of ‘woman’ to live with 15 other women having to submit to a process of dating where a rose keeps you or lack thereof ends the relationship without a real explanation, having to grief alone at least for three months after the show has been taped. I don’t believe that Ashley has been dealing with this from the beginning and she’s over-the-top, she’s questioning herself, it’s too much.

In the mist of Ashley I. disclosing to some of the girls that she’s a virgin, Becca comes out and says that she’s a virgin too. I didn’t see that one coming. But that’s when you have to watch out for the quiet, unsuspecting ones that end up coming out on top.

Britt, who’s now feeling more insecure about her relationship with Chris, expressed concerns about the dates he’s been going on and questioned whether or not she is going to stay or go home. Chris took it that she was questioning his integrity because he gave  Kaitlyn got a rose (secret rivalry?).

Evebritt-nilsson-madn though he thanked her for having the conversation, clearly he was upset and at the end of the cocktail hour, he made a speech about anyone who has ill intentions or questioning his integrity or feel maybe they may not be right for him they are more than welcome to go home. Of course no one is going to do that. Why lose camera time.

I think if Britt had real concerns she wouldn’t have bought up and asked why is Kaitlyn getting a rose as opposed to not her getting a rose if she needed to generalize the situation that would’ve been easier than to question why is he giving out certain roses to certain people or say nothing at all. That never works in favor for anyone.

I hope that Chris does not discount Britt.

Chris’ choices in the rose ceremony:
Ashley I.

Ashley S. did not get a rose (about time).

Juelia did not get a rose either. I think the issue with her husband killing himself was way over the top and clearly something that she has not come to peace with. Chris certainly did her a favor and hope that time will heal her wounds.
