Married At First Sight – Cohabitation and Happy New Year

Ryan D. and Jaclyn

jaclyn-ryan-ranellone-married-at-first-sight-season-2

After Ryan and Jaclyn were able to establish a living situation, they consummated their relationship. However, this relationship didn’t start off as a romantic one.

When those doors opened up it was similar reaction to Jamie when she married Doug. Not a very happy one. And even though Jaclyn said, “I do”, inside she was screaming, “I don’t”. Makes me wonder why women continue to just say yes to something where they really want to say no.

Anyway, getting back to this couple, because they are reality television, I’m sure they had to sign some kind of disclosure saying they would stick with this for the next six weeks and even though a honeymoon can make everything exciting, reality is what sets in when the vacation is over and real life steps in.

For this couple things seems to be getting off on a good foot, however, because of Jaclyn’s very possessive and strong attitude, it seems that she tries to castrate Ryan by playing the man role too, instead of just letting Ryan be the man in the relationship.

Behavior like this for me is when someone is really not that into you and will play the role of, “let’s be buddies and hang out and get to know each other.” I think they had a show like this on Bravo who followed couples that were best of friends but one of them was secretly into the other….I don’t know whatever happened to that show. Bravo goes through shows, like ATL Housewives go through hair weaves.

I’ve been known to go out on dates with guys that I was not interested in and would take over the conversation to ensure that this will not go any further and they will remain in the friend zone. Since I don’t like to play games, rest assured, it ended that night when the date was over.

Ryan lived with his family and extremely close to them. Due to the loss of his sister and then his brother in law, he was raising his niece, basically stepping in as the parents this little girl lost. Having to make a move and be away from his family, Ryan was definitely going through withdrawal but seemed ready to make the compromise and sacrifice to co-habitat with his new wife.

For Jaclyn, who seemed to struggle with the new man in her life, started to see a different side of Ryan once they began to get their house in order.

While I agree with Dr. Joseph, there is a side of yourself you have to let go in order to allow someone in your life, you also have to do it with common sense. Just because a doctor told you that this is your ideal mate it doesn’t mean that’s necessarily true.

I think what is lacking in this relationship like the rest of the cast is the courting which seemed to take place with Cortney, Jason, Doug and Jamie. They all were very committed to making their relationships work which included romance.

I’m not really seeing that with this couple…for now at least. Jaclyn is a very outspoken woman and you know sometimes, guys don’t like that. While they like women who exude strength they certainly don’t like to look like an idiot.

New Year’s day, visiting her family, she made it a point to share that under no circumstances she wants to have a child after 35. And not saying this in private but saying this in front of her family.

I think in relationships, there are certain conversations you should have in private and not in front of family members. This was definitely not topic of discussion saved for family and friends.

Davina and Sean

davina-sean-married-at-first-sight-season-2

The team of experts paired Davina and Sean on the main commonality that they were both bullied while growing up. Davina lives and owns an apartment in New York, which Sean owns a house in New Jersey. Both have agreed that for now living separate during certain days of the week while Sean goes to work, will just have to work for the time being. Even though Davina doesn’t like this idea, this is something that she’s temporarily dealing with only to appease Sean.

Here’s another couple with a situation where one loves living in New York while the other isn’t really having it. I think once someone lives in New Jersey and becomes accustomed to living a certain lifestyle, who really wants to live in the hustle of New York. If the man has to drive into work, who wants to drive back and spend an enormous amount of money for parking? Not ideal for New York City living.

Davina isn’t willing to make a compromise.

Sean made a private call from Dr. Joseph regarding their relationship how the chemistry was initially strong to now a friendship level of relationship.

While Dr. Joseph informs Sean to not be hard on himself on his feelings and anxiety, he should find understanding on himself and be accepting of what he’s feeling and find a solution through it.

I think Dr. Joseph is right, BUT, let’s be real here….I mean, this is reality television isn’t it?

Davina comes from a culture where most relationships are arranged, therefore there isn’t really a pursuit or courting. However, Davina who is Americanized and has exposure to American culture understands what is means to be courted or romanced. At least that is what we are taught. Just tune in to, “Say Yes to the Dress”, that’s all you hear and quite honestly that’s what women want. So what happens when you meet someone and marry them at first sight? Where is the romance? Sounds like a repeat of Ryan R. and Jaclyn.

Ryan D. and Jessica

mafs-s2-e2-ep-nav-474x268-alt-img

Now this couple, I questioned on every episode. They did have sex the first night and I’m sure they plenty of sex during the honeymoon, but after the honeymoon, everything changed and things got pretty serious and pretty nasty in a matter of three short weeks.

Jessica is not a girl who communicates her feelings at all. She says she cooks but she doesn’t cook, she says she wants closet space but she doesn’t express that, she says the kitchen will always be clean but gets a nasty response in return. He gets angry because she irons on the bed, she’s tired of sushi, she’s mad because he took their wedding money for himself, oh and let’s forget how he thinks pierces are nasty or tacky and she took out her Monroe piercing to “make a change” but yet he has a shit load of tattoos. What the fuck?

Ryan is very ghetto when he talks to her and Jessica seems to get shut out when she does. They continue to have big arguments and even after celebrating New Years Eve together as a couple, I didn’t see a loving couple at all.

It’s almost as if when everything is good, it’s really good, but just for the time being and when everything is bad, it’s really bad.

So far the last few episodes ending with Happy New Year so far isn’t happy for all of the couples.

#TheBachelorette Season 11 E 2 The Decision @ChrisBHarrison @kaitlynbristowe

The Bachelorette Part II

the-bachelorette-recap-kaitlyn-wins-men-s-votes-britt-feels-embarrassedWhen Chris Harrison approached Britt, he was the bearer of bad news telling her that she was not chosen to be the Bachelorette and it was time for her to go home.

When Kaitlyn came into the room, you can see some of the men were excited and some were masking their faces really well.

Ian who was there for Kaitlyn from the beginning will probably not last very long.

Joshua, who’s a welder made a rose for her will probably not last every long either since he lives on a farm and we already been there done that.

Chris Harrison pulls out the First Impression rose and then of course all the men step up their game.

Tony who’s completely perplexed, because he came for Kaitlyn but then changed his mind and voted for Britt, wasn’t sure how to proceed.

Jared who initially was interested in Kaitlyn and then changed his mind and voted for Britt was forthcoming with Kaitlyn in telling her who he voted for. Kaitlyn then comes to the realization that there are men who are probably not there for her. Helloooooo?!?

Jonathon who voted for Britt also didn’t have a problem sticking around for Kaitlyn and basically said in so many words he had to rearrange with his emotions. Really? I mean come on. Be honest. This is all about staying on television. Another one that won’t last.

Chris the dentist wasted no time planting a kiss on her after his cupcake entrance, even though just before then, JJ seemed to win over Kaitlyn emotionally.

bachelorette-shawn first imprression roseAnd with much effort of the dentist, he didn’t garner the first impression rose, Shawn did and was able to plant no one but two long kisses from Kaityln who was obviously very much into him.

Now for the first Rose Ceremony. Kaitlyn handed the roses as follows:

Chris (the dentist)
Ben H.
J.J.
Joe
Kupah (voted for Britt)
Daniel (voted for Britt)
Ryan B.
Joshua
Tony (voted for Britt)

In the middle of the ceremony, Brady stops the ceremony and ask Kaitlyn if he can speak to her. While all the men are freaking out thinking that Brady is trying to get his way of getting a rose, she comes back to inform the guys that Brady has chosen to leave because his heart was with the woman who left a few hours ago.

After talking with Chris Harrison and asking him to help him get together with Britt, he leaves saying, “The risk of love, whatever the consequence, is always, always worth it.”

The ceremony continued on….

Clint
Corey S.
Jonathon (voted for Britt)
Cory Shiver
Ben Z.
Tanner
Ian
Justin
Jared (voted for Britt)

Who went home:

Carpool guy, Stripper guy, and other not memorable guys walking out of the mansion.

The highlights were interesting. As you can try and guess who she’s with what looks like one on one dates with Clint, Ben Z., Jared, Shawn but then something changes, when Nick. V. from the Andi season comes in and it seems the way she says his name that she’s been with him before. However, it doesn’t seem as though she didn’t have sex with him but with someone else.

Maybe Chris Harrision was right. Maybe this will be the most dramatic season yet.

#TheBachelorette Most Dramatic Season…so says @ChrisBHarrison Season 11 Episode 1

The Bachelorette Season 11 Episode 1

kaitlyn bacheloretteAs we venture into another dramatic season of the Bachelorette – the producers who had trouble picking between Kaitlyn and Britt decided to do a repeat of what they did with Byron Velvick and the “other guy” who didn’t get chosen to be the Bachelor way back when the Bachelor was in it’s early stages.

If you recall, later in that episode they bought two women back from the previous season one of the being Mary Delgado. Everyone was rooting for them even though the women that were already vying for his love early on were furious that two women came in with Byron having lost interest in them and pursued Mary.

Unfortunately, the great love of Mary and Byron was all lost when Mary appeared in the news, having been arrested for abusing Byron.

Probably THE MOST DRAMATIC after the final rose yet. We all know Chris Harrison, everything is the most dramatic.

Hello!!! Anyone that’s watching this, the idea of the show is supposed to be dramatic.

So here we are with two Bachelorettes, (BTW I cheated months ago and already knew who the Bachelorette was going to be). Without delaying it, Kaitlyn became the next Bachelorette and my first initial thought was, “ugh another Jen Scheft boring season.” But after seeing the previews and Nick V. making out with Kaitlyn and the heavy breathing, I quickly changed my mind. I felt like

Before the women met the men, we had a chance to see the edited version of the men they chose to spotlight on.

One of them was Jonathon who he works in the automotive industry from Detroit who was interested in Britt and he has a child. Really? I mean come on. Britt is a free spirited woman. I cannot see her tied down, living in Detroit taking care of someone else’s kid. Next….

Joe from Kentucky, (small town once again), expressed interest in Kaitlyn. I think after the whole Farmer Chris thing, we’re done with farming.

Josh, who lives in Chicago and studying for the bar exam, has an interesting job to pay the bills as a male dancer. He doesn’t look that tall, however, the little bit of clip they showed stripping, looks like the third leg has a stand of its own. Oh he didn’t express in any bachelorette in particular.

Brady, from Nashville and a musician expressed a big interest with Britt.

The small town country boy, Joshua, from Idaho (another farmer in the middle of nowhere), would like to see Kaitlyn as the next Bachelorette.

Ian from Venice Beach, is an Executive Recruiter and he’s a runner. He shared he was hit by a car and essentially left for dead. Through surgeries and therapy, he was able to run again. With no ifs, ands or but’s, his pick would be Kaityln.

Nerdy but cuite, Jared from Rhode Island and superhero, “Love Man”, has very strong interest in Kaitlyn.

Meditative and Healer, Tony, who’s soft spoken and has a relationship with his plants, ready for love with Britt. I’m not sure where they found this guy but he reminds me of the male version of Ashley, really loopy and doesn’t make any sense.

Ben Z., sports player, already disclosed his mother’s passing at the age of 14. I’m sure we will be hearing a lot about his mom throughout the season. He was also open to the opportunity for both Britt and Kaitlyn.

As each man came out of the limo and introduced themselves, the ones that were interested in Britt went to her first and then greeted Kaitlyn like she was secondary. What was funny is that Jared who had so much interested in Kaitlyn, came out of the limo and went running to Britt first. Even as each man went inside the mansion they were all rooting for Britt, oh so it seemed. It was funny on how many people were into Britt, and I’m not sure how people were taken by Kaitlyn.

Of course one of the most memorable entrances out of the limo was Josh…he didn’t have to say a thing LOL.

Shawn who came out of the limo practically sweeping Britt off her feet, actually was there for Kaitlyn. A perfect example of how deceptive men can be.

Speaking of deception, Kaitlyn decides to run into the mansion to say hi to the guys, which probably garnered her some votes.

Tony who finally met Britt and spoke this romantic poetry walks over to Kaitlyn and tells her the same thing to Britt that he said to Kaitlyn. He believes in love and he hopes the Universe provides….*barf*

Before the ladies got to the guys to get to know them, Ryan was already plastered and acting like a fucking idiot. Is he going to do another Jordan and come back and apologize for being a drunken idiot? Next….

I don’t want to get into the semantics of gifts, etc but after the intros and it came down to the wire when the men realized that they had to vote who was going to be the next Bachelorette is when the game began and all the men started inquiring who was going to vote for whom.

Many of the men that came out of the limo went to Britt first. She seemed to have a big following of men but then some of them who spoke to Kaitlyn started to change their minds about who they really wanted to get to know.

The yoga guy who was into Britt in the beginning and then said later he was here for Kaitlyn, put his hands on the voting box and said Britt’s box was pulsating. I’m confused. I thought he was there for Britt from the get go….

Seems hid deep connection with Britt didn’t hold weight since he didn’t have a problem accepting a rose from Kaitlyn.

The nerdy guy who’s a restaurant manager did the same thing. He was back and forth between Kaitlyn and Britt but I think in the end he chose Kaitlyn.

The highlight of the evening was Ryan M. who decided getting wasted and acting like an ass was going to get him far. Enter the new character in the Bachelor camp fetches Ryan to tell him that Chris Harrison would like to speak to him. We all know where this was going. In short, bye bye Ryan M. Chris Harrison sent him packing in a van LOL.

The stragglers left who hadn’t voted, Britt and Kaitlyn spent talking with them. It was clear from the beginning that Brady was not budging from Britt. Not within the least. He came there with the intention of being with Britt and he proved that in the rose ceremony when he pulled Kaitlyn aside and told her that his heart was with Britt and not with her and he needed to respond to that.

When Chris Harrison did finalize that the votes were in….to be continued.

My Final Thoughts #TheBachelor #FarmerChris E-I-E-I-O @c_soules

Why Chris Soules picked the Producers Choice

While Bachelor Nation is brain washed into believing that The Bachelor/Bachelorette final picks are real, there are a small portion of us and probably includes Reality Steve who aren’t buying into the Bachelor love story so easily.

Anyone who has watched Season 19 intently wondered why Chris sent Britt packing, kept Carly all of this time, got rid of Kimberly after giving her a chance in the first episode and who seemed like a good potential of someone that Chris can really get to know, got rid of Samantha over Kelsey, the list goes on. Most importantly, choosing pushy Whitney over Becca, who seemed to have the most potential in a long lasting relationship and Becca who seems to have a good head on her shoulders was right in keeping the pace in what a relationship should be instead of rushing things.

Chris Soules was one of the final four from the Andi season. One of the most popular bachelors and I use that term loosely as we can only go by what Chris Harrison is being told to say on these shows, like “hashtag” BachelorNation.

Of course you can’t fault the marketing department, after all, they are just doing their job like any other company has the right to do so, however, why I don’t believe that Chris made the right choice is broken down as so:

carly and chrisCarly and Chris

From the moment that Carly stepped out of that limo with the karaoke machine was a sign that Chris should have sent her packing. Even when she went on further to talk about investing two years in a relationship with a man that did not touch her was a clear sign Carly had a lot to sort through. Forget Juelia who was bawling over the suicide of her husband, an obvious sign that Juelia was not ready to be in a relationship but Carly? Really? I mean what woman stays in a relationship with a man who refuses to be intimate with her. This creates all sorts of low self-esteem issues that would need to be resolved before moving on to another relationship. As the season droned on, the true colors of Carly emerged when she realized Britt had a better relationship with Chris than she did (I mean forget everyone else who had a better relationship with Chris too). If she had pulled the veil from her eyes, she would have seen she and Chris really didn’t have anything but a great friendship.

getty image chris and kimberlyKimberly and Chris

While Kimberly and Chris didn’t last but an episode, I had to include her as I felt some type of empathy there for her. Here is a woman, self-employed, a yoga teacher, spiritual, living in NYC and ready to make a move with her life and her love life. She was beautiful and well put together. So why didn’t Chris keep her? Simple. Why keep a woman that’s put together. #ProducersCut

bachelor-britt-week-6Britt and Chris

For a while during the episode, Britt looked like the clear cut winner. Even during group dates while not garnering the rose all the time, she did get the first rose, the first kiss and the episode when Chris whisked her away to the Big and Rich show was enough to put Britt on the hate list but enough for the audience watching to think, this was it. Chris found love and he found it with Britt. It didn’t end there when Carly realizing she’s watching love bloom and it wasn’t with her but with Britt decided to feed into a childlike tantrum and tell Chris that Britt is not really that into him and she lied about wanting to live in Arlington. Not a nice thing to do especially when it comes to game of love. I don’t know anyone with common sense that would want to be with anyone by deception instead of just having the person be with you because they want to. And look, you gotta have a lot of balls to want to live in a town filled with nothing but farm land. Tell me how many people want to make that type of move? You can’t fault people for that. But you can be truthful and say, I love you but I’m not sure about this life but I’m willing to give it a chance.

While there’s still a part of me that feels Britt was trying to, as they say in Real Housewives of Atlanta, she may have been on the ‘come up’, I really believe that outside of the farm life, Britt would have been the idea wife because she bought another side to Chris that he probably never realized he had inside himself, to have fun and enjoy life.

jade and chris

Jade and Chris

While Chris’ sister’s thought that Jade was the ideal woman for Chris, I just didn’t see the connection. Had she told Chris in episode 2 or 3 that she was hottie nudie in Playboy he definitely wouldn’t have given her the rose and maybe keep Kelsey. LOL – Jade reminded me of Jen Scheft, a bit boring. Jen was chosen by Andrew Firestone and while that relationship lasted but a hot minute, he ended up marrying a woman that was similar to Jen Scheft. LOL

 

bachelor-becca

Becca and Chris

Chris definitely let an opportunity of love and stability go when he choose Whitney over Becca. Becca had common sense; there wasn’t urgency for love and marriage. She’s preserved her virginity for someone who’s deserving of it and I totally get that. Relationships are tough, being with someone and making all sorts of compromises isn’t easy. Chris is not an old man and clearly having a relationship with Becca would have bought upon a foundation that not many have when seeking love in reality television. Sure she didn’t have that pushy attitude like Whitney did, desperate to be in a relationship, rushing to have children to fit into a timeline of what women think life should be. She tied in with his family very well and father knows best when he said that Chris really wanted Becca. Love is a funny thing. Becca seems more reserved and careful with her choices and while that may have cost her a relationship with Chris, I liked how she handled herself in the women tell all. She didn’t fall apart even though she was hurt. Clearly Becca knows Chris isn’t the last man on earth and I’m sure she will find someone worthy of her.

chris-soules-and-whitney-bischoffWhitney and Chris

Where do I begin? I didn’t like Whitney from the start for a variety of reasons. Pushy, desperate, annoying chatty voice, telling people what they want to hear, etc. etc.

What woman does that? A woman solely in interested in herself and no one else.

Any woman with self-esteem knows what she wants without forcing any relationship. Why didn’t she leave an impression with Chris’ sisters the first time around? Yet here she was as the final two and boy were his sister’s singing a different tune. Whitney gave them everything they wanted to hear. She was the lead singer, the choir and the back up singer.

It’s relationships like that that make me question when seeking love what does the ideal wife look like in America’s eyes?  Does she look like Whitney? Career minded, super charged and self-absorbed. Does she go around acting like the bell of the ball?

It seemed to Chris’ family based Whitney she as the guaranteed relationship” because Becca held back and wanted to build something before saying “I do”.

Hello? Doesn’t every one do that?

“Hi, nice to meet you, let’s get married” (wait that’s another show but they’re completely different)

(BTW notice this smirk pictures of Whitney when Chris escorted Kaitlyn out. What does that tell you? A woman definitely just as cattie as Carly. No different just in a sneaky way.)

whitney-smirking

whitney-smirking2

whitney-smirking3

What the fuck is that all about? There’s a time and a place for every step of love. I truly believe that. And while Becca wanted to take her time, what did Whitney say when Chris Harrison asked her is she moving to Arlington. Did you catch that pause on how they are just taking it slow…. #contradiction – Was it because the family was so gun-ho that he put a ring on it. UGH! AND in #BachelorNation it’s all about the ratings. Hurry up and get married and make us look good.

I wonder how much longer does this show have to be on the air. I mean will it surpass my life? Is this the new way to meet people?

Furthermore, why does society frown upon someone like Britt but found Jillian to be acceptable? Britt is gorgeous and with that type of natural beauty that I believe people will envy (yes I do think that Britt is beautiful). People are such haters. They make you feel like you don’t deserve better because of it. #Jealousy

What about the career women? Does a career make or break the reputation of a woman? Will a man choose a woman who’s not as career minded out of fear that she won’t be there to take care of him?

As the owner of an Adult publication and working with people in the Adult sector, I have to tell you from early on, men who I was remotely interested would send me pictures of their ass and dick thinking this is what I am looking for. When I tell them (in my most kind voice), “look we’re not on the same page”, then I would be called uptight.

WTF? OH I’m sorry am I supposed to be a slut because I own a sex magazine? Who’s the close minded asshole?

Look, a person’s career should not define who they choose to love and HOW they choose to love that person. Anyone who works in the Adult sector are not just looking for sex [in their personal life] unless that’s exactly what they want and made it a point to say, yes I’m looking for sex and that’s it.

There’s not much common sense left in the world. Sad but true.

As for my final note on Chris Soules, I don’t believe this relationship with Whitney will last. It will go down in #BachelorNation history as a good season of crazy women, faux panic attacks, booty shorts, virgins, women who don’t shower, and a man who lives on a farm.

E-I-E-I-O

Until then.

Loves and Hugs,

The Bachelor @C_Soules Hometown Dates – Bye Britt :-( AND Carly (YAY)

021615-bachelorbecca1stdateContinuing from last weeks episode, Chris has a one on one date with Becca who I believe he will wind up with in the end. She still has not told Chris that she is a virgin and has never been intimate with any man whatsoever. She tells Chris that she was in a relationship that was on and off but that she had never been in love with him or in love with anyone else for that matter which seems to take Chris aback. Fear perhaps? This is a grown woman who has never felt love for any man. (Three cheers for Becca for not falling for BS and standing her ground.) Back at the hotel,

Britt sits with the girls and ask them what they’re chatting about and Whitney says that they’re talking about Becca and what could be going on on their date and about last night which clearly was not the starring role for Britt. Britt confesses to the girls that she believes in her heart that she is going home and that she’s not going to get a rose so she packed up her things in preparation to leave however if there is a chance that Chris will choose her then she will stay.

That leaves Carly asking a bunch of questions and making sarcastic and antagonizing statements which only upsets Britt even more because Carly feels if Britt is not in the picture that will put her one level up which I don’t believe it will. The evening has dawned upon them for the rose ceremony.

Chris Harrison comes into the room and tells the ladies that there will be no cocktail hour and will go straight to the rose ceremony. Britt has already packed up her things with the intention of telling Chris that she has no plans on staying feeling as though because he gave Kaitlyn the rose after she had put her heart out there. Feeling as though is he worthy of meeting her family coupled with her heart may not be in the right place, she stops the rose ceremony and asks Chris if she can talk to him.

Even though she knows that having put her foot in her mouth, I can understand why she did what she did. What is the point of standing around in a rose ceremony knowing that you’re not going to get a rose when you just might as will say goodbye and get it over with. I think Kaitlyn is an idiot for even making a statement that she made that Britt should just grin and bear it. Why? Perhaps this is the closure Britt wants so she can leave.

I’m surprised even Kaitlyn made it this far also. During their private time while Britt and Chris were talking over each other and nobody was really listening to each other instead of Britt just telling Chris that it was not going to work out for either of them, they come a silence.

43-bachelor-week-7bAnd in that silence it is mutual  that this relationship is over and he walks her out leaving her hysterical crying. All the other girls seem to be empathizing except for Carly, who’s smiling and gloating at Britt’s pain. Chris now heads back to the ladies for the rose ceremony before hometown dates and the ladies that are left standing are Becca, Carly, Whitney, Kaitlyn and Jade.

Before he hands out the roses, he makes a statement that he wants to thank those who have addressed that Britt was being a phony. Huh? If that is the case why did he spend so much time with her and even taking her away from the other ladies to the big and Rich concert for which they were gone for more than an hour while he left all of them waiting and gave Britt a rose that night. Why did he just say earlier in the episode that she was the one he can see being married and having children? Talk about can conflict.

The roses were disbursed as following: Whitney Becca Jade BWAAhAaaaHa. And Carly? Kicked to the curb. Just as she should have been from the moment she came out of the limo with her toy. Continuing on with the episode the first hometown date he has is with Becca who is extremely excited to see him and excited to meet her family as well as she is excited to have him meet her family.

Here are some pictures I took from my television of Carly in the limo clueless as to why Chris let her go. The part of “what’s wrong with me I always end up in the same exact place” got me…what is wrong with her? Where do I begin? Her nasty attitude, the lies she made up to make herself look good, the green eyed monster. Who would want to see her as the next Bachelorette, raise your hands? I thought so. As a woman no one likes to be around nasty, jealous women who will throw them under the bus at the first chance they act upon their insecurity.

pathetic carly2 pathetic carly3 carly pathetic1Speaking of throwing people under the bus, hometown dates are strange because family members will say things that will also throw that person under the bus and ruin potential relationships with the bachelor or bachelorette. Becca’s sister pulls Chris’s side (you know that “private” chat) to tell him that Becca has never been intimate with a guy as far as holding hands or being affectionate and that she had seen them holding hands and she didn’t pull away which was a first. After having a conversation with her mom I don’t think that Chris is deterred from how he feels towards Becca.

Their date ends on a ferris wheel right before he tells her,  “I’m going to take you home with me”. I don’t know if that meant the ferris wheel ride or Arlington. Understand my confusion as he just mentioned the day before how he wanted to ride under the sunset with Britt. On his hometown date with Whitney it was all about her and her career and herself and how fabulous she is.

I guess it’s okay to toot your own horn except when your desperate.  I think shows should show a red flag for Chris because why would she leave that life? Nope! Why would he see that? On their way to meet her family he says he wants to be able to talk to someone to get their blessing I don’t know why he told her that because I don’t believe that he will choose Whitney in the end. At the same time…wow.

Was a choice made already? He eventually asked Whitney’s sister for her blessing and she was very forward and telling him that until she is the last girl standing he should wait to ask that question. She will not give her blessing otherwise. Good point. Despite the situation that is created around the bachelor I don’t believe that Whitney has fallen in love with Chris.

I think it’s just the surroundings and the circumstances where you have a bunch of women pursuing one man that makes one believe that they are in love with them without having them live the realities of life outside of the cameras. But Whitney loves the cameras.

On the hometown date with Kaitlyn she meets him from what looks like a seedy part of Phoenix, Arizona but it was actually a place where there’s a studio and they decided to record a rap song which was pretty bad. I’m not sure who comes up with these strange date ideas. While the family settings seem to the usual boring scene, after dinner Kaitlyn takes Chris to an advertising street sign where she placed Kaitlyn loves Chris.

Which I think is pretty awesome nice way to tell somebody that you love them not that it’s never been done before. An advertisement sign that overlooks the whole street is a big deal. On his hometown date with Jade in Gering, Nebraska, while everything seems to be going fine on the outside, Jade still has concerns because she had pose nude for Playboy and still has not told Chris.

Chris makes inquiries through her family members about Jade and they’re all pretty much saying the same thing. They all seem to express concern that Jade is not ready to settle down, she’s a wild girl, etc. it’s stuff like that that maybe your family should not be sharing with a potential life partner. When Jade took him back to, I’m gathering, her hotel room where she was staying while in Nebraska, she shared with him her secret about posing for Playboy and while Chris seem to have taken it in stride I knew that was the last nail that locked the coffin and the rose ceremony proved it. Was anyone surprised?

I was surprised that, she too, lasted for as long as she did. I believe the only reason why she had surpassed rose ceremony after rose ceremony was because his sisters had chosen her for his one on one, probably thinking they see something he hasn’t seen in her.

Look, if your dick doesn’t get hard and your pussy doesn’t get wet, that should be enough to tell you they ain’t the one. While he made it a point to tell her that his decision was not based on what she told him but more based on the relationships that he has developed with the other women, begs the question how much of a relationship does he really have with Becca?

While I believe Becca is the ideal woman for him, how long did it take for him to establish a relationship with her. In the whole spectrum of looking at the last four ceremonies he has had more of a connection with Britt than any other girl including Whitney.

I really felt for Jade but again I cannot see her settling down on some farm with Chris.

All in all this episode was extremely boring. The hometown dates were just the usual family gatherings with a family member pulling Chris’s side saying  “let’s have some one-on-one time”.

Bye Jade. We all saw that one coming. Really? Could you see her family looking at her with the same eyes the day they were all in Arlington knowing that she was naked in a magazine. People are so hard up. If Chris had real feelings for her and tossed them aside for the sake of conservative modesty, he made a big mistake. Oh did you notice those tears that Chris shed when he said goodbye to Jade. I didn’t see him cry for anyone like that.

Until then.

Loves and Hugs,

The Sunday Special @C_Soules Bachelor @chrisbharrison Host E7

phoney kelseyThis Sunday special showed what happened behind the scenes of this season of the Bachelor.

Chris Harrison talks about something that has never happened in bachelor history when Kelsey was sent home how the girls cheered and broke out the champagne, which is true, something like that has never happened.  So Kelsey was interviewed in an early “hot seat” when Chris asked her why was she so disliked?

Kelsey was shocked when Chris Harrison said she was so controversial. She was called several things, condescending, that she faked the panic attack which we all know she did, she is narcissistic – and when the women found out that she snuck time with Chris to tell him about her husband dropping dead, they were all convinced this was an ulterior motive to stick around because she had no other cause to stay around.

While she claims that was her intention, we all know that she knew she was going home and that was the only reason why she went into Chris’ room, to lock in her “bid”, so to speak because she knew she was going home.

When Chris Harrison asked her if she faked the panic attack she said no. Did he really think that she would answer that question truthfully? He also mention how she recovered pretty quick as it seemed one minute she was on the floor and the next minute she’s “kee keeing” with the ladies on the couch like nothing happened.

Chris Harrison brings up the two on one date with Ashley I. who was gunning for her. Kelsey said she was shocked Ashley said those things about because Ashley was nice to her from the beginning and believes that because she was thrown under the bus because Ashley had no chance with Chris.

Then Chris Harrison sits with Farmer Chris to ask him what was going through his mind watching the playback of the shows especially in the Badlands with Ashley and Kelsey especially when he and Kelsey had their one on one time as he confronted her with the info that Ashley just shared. Chris said he was surprised what he heard about Kelsey. Shocked, maybe but really Farmer Chris, are you blind? If I can ask Chris, why did you keep Kelsey over Samantha? Did you feel sorry for her with her Sanderson story…? I don’t know given the situation, I would have questioned why she decided to share that story especially when it was clear that she wasn’t sticking around and then playing up a panic attack, I mean really?

The Bachelor Women Tell All Ashley S in hot seat onionMoving on to the comical Ashley S. who I believe that not only did they think she was cooky but she would be great humor for the show. Believe me if anyone thought she was right for Chris, at this point I think Ashley stole the show as crazy as she is.  She was having a lot more fun with the zombie paint ball game, I think more fun than anyone else was having, she made strange comments during her interviews about everything else but Chris. I like the scenes with Ashley walking around the property and just popping into places that the other women probably never thought to look like craft services, the accounting department, staring at walls and doors. What was funny was when she went back to the girls at the house and told them she found an office where there was a group of people betting on them. I would not be surprised if there’s side bets going on. While we all knew right then and there that Ashley would not be the one to wind up with Chris, clearly she would be unforgettable, for sure. Even though her audition tape displayed a women who seemed completely normal when it came to real Ashley all were left to wonder what exactly is she looking for.

Chris Harrison goes into Tara being drunk and the fact that being drunk almost cost her a rose but Chris decided to keep her any way. I think Chris gave a great answer, (I’m not being sarcastic) he said because he empathized and identified with the situation he decided to give her another chance.  But he didn’t give that chance to Jordan who he sent packing in episode two due to the same thing but when she came back to see him when they were out in Santa Fe and listened to her plea, he still sent her packing anyway.  And then there was Jillian who I think he liked the short shorts better than Jillian herself. Look we all know that Jillian would have been a terrible wife for Chris. Can anyway see this vivacious woman on a farm???? Not me. Plus she talked about sex a lot. My kind of girl, definitely not Chris’ kind of girl.

juelia crying over husbandThey go into Juelia who disclosed the story of her husband killing himself and still sent her home. Beautiful Juelia with that terrible spelling of her name and understood why Chris sent her home. This woman was still reelling over the death of her husband. This wasn’t a man who died of natural causes. This was a man who took his life and left a wife and a daughter to live with that for the rest of their lives. Before Juelia move on she has to find solace with the death of her husband and until then she will find someone who will truly love her and most importantly she will love them, without any guilt.

More of behind the scenes when Jimmy Kimmel joining in on the date with Kaitlyn, the love guru with Carly and how weird it became, the scene they didn’t show with him and Becca and Sully the donkey taking off with Chris Harrison calling the donkey a jackass for almost taking Farmer Chris off the path.

They go into Britt and their relationship and what happened at Deadwood when he took her to the Big and Rich concert while the other girls were waiting for more than an hour and return with Britt having the rose in her hand coming into a very tense moment.

While Farmer Chris has not handled all of the situations with common sense, I would agree he is doing the best that he can, given the situation.

For more on Andi, check out my next blog because we all know I have a lot to say about the farce of that stupid relationship.

The Bachelor @JimmyKimmel Special @c_soules

The Bachelor E3 – The Jimmy Kimmel Special

Jimmy Kimmel looking very intent on making sure he hits every spot on Chris Soules (lol)

Comedian and talk show host Jimmy Kimmel takes over week three of the bachelor which is almost appropriate because Jimmy has a lot to say about what happens the show and making predictions although I think he gets his predictions from reality Steve.
While making priceless jokes, the girls were actually happy to see him and took over Chris Harrison’s job which was also pretty funny. You know if for any reason Chris Harrison couldn’t do a season, Jimmy Kimmel would be a great replacement as he will keep the humor steady in this already comedic show.
Before the date card is given to the ladies, Jimmy pulls out a swear jar explaining the word ‘amazing’ is used quite often so in lieu of keeping count of the word, everyone that uses it has to put a dollar in the jar.
The date card is disbursed with dancer Kaitlyn to start things off with the first one on one date.
Amazing…
Unbeknownst to Farmer Chris and Kaitlyn, Jimmy Kimmel would be in control of their date and upon arrival at Costco’s, Jimmy supplied them with a grocery list of things they must pick up for their date.

Although a highly unconventional date for the Bachelor since most of all the dates are based on glamour, Kaitlyn did make valid points regarding their date, bringing the reality aspect to what they may be doing in real life which would be shopping….?
When they arrived back at the house, and engaged in conversation, Jimmy shows up and becomes part of the date. Of course one of the first things he asks is about the fantasy suite and the unspoken rule that no one is to disclosed if the couples have sex. Come on….we all know they do. Look at Andi – she had sex with Nick but picked Josh because she was convinced at some point he was going to be into her. Jimmy, in his “manly show” ways, made a lot of jokes to Chris that he should have sex with all of the women before he picks one.
Back at the house, the new date card comes in for the group date as follows:
Britt, Jillian, Becca, Tracy, Mackenzie, Kelsey, Amber, Ashley S., Juelia, Samantha, Nikki, and Carly.
…And on the date with Kaitlyn, Chris and Jimmy, Chris (during his interview) talked about how attracted he is to Kaitlyn and the qualities she possesses. While in the pool in their intimate setting and kissing, the camera pans the camera over to the right and there’s Jimmy Kimmel is on the other side of the pool having his champagne and enjoying the view.

Now it’s time for the group date which Jimmy Kimmel informs the ladies that this date will consist of farm work more like an obstacle course of farming. He gave specific instructions to the girls on what they need to do the first thing they need to do is milk a goat and drink some of the milk (which I’m not sure that’s even kosher or safe to drink), after that they had to shovel manure and chase a pig. Carly who didn’t get a date last week was on this group date and mentioned that she was allergic to goats milk but she was still going to drink it anyway I don’t know if that’s a stupid move but if you’re allergic to something chances are you shouldn’t be eating or drinking it. I guess when you come in with your toy karaoke machine, anything is to be expected from Carly.
Carly ends up winning the race and they take photos as the Farmer and wife American Gothic picture. The picture couldn’t be complete without Jimmy Kimmel and Chris Soules as the American Gothic couple part two.
By this point I’ve lost count on how many ‘amazing’ were said, but I do know they missed one with Becca which was later down the line.
After the group festivities, the girls are all dressed and ready to compete for Chris’ time and make out.
Carly grabs him first, now feeling confident that she’s in the game as a result of not having time with him on the episode before and she makes his speech I’m a man you’re a woman blah blah blah and makes out with him.
Amber who’s also feeling super confident has her time with Chris and plays, “let’s pretend to slow dance without music” and they kiss, and it suddenly becomes the repeat of Juan Pablo when his tongue was in everyone’s mouth too. As a matter of fact, they should have had JP for this season to help Farmer Chris decide who the better kisser is.
McKenzie’s, the youngest out of all the ladies, was noticeably upset at all the kissing, as she’s still in her head that she got the first kiss. When she gets her time with him she confronts him and asks why was he kissing everyone on this group date. The look on the farmer’s face was priceless. Yes, why was he kissing everyone? In the past seasons, (except for JP) I can’t recall where everyone was kissing everyone so early on, well maybe Bob Guiny.
When Becca had her one-on-one time with Chris, Becca mentions that their conversations seem effortless. She also confides with him by telling him she would have not done the Bachelor if it were anyone else but him. Watching him last season, she saw he would be the ideal person to bring home to her family. (She did say amazing twice). And while the music is heightening and the scenery is to perfection, they are locked eyes, holding hands, and as they draw closer, they….hug. Were you waiting for a kiss? My thoughts on Becca, I like her. She turned the tables when she said that she would have not come on to the show if it were not him as the Bachelor. Yes while Chris does hand out the roses and it’s about who stays and who goes, just as Andi didn’t feel that Juan Pablo was a good choice for her, she chose to leave, any one of these women can do that. But you know in reality television every woman wants their spotlight. Right now I’m placing my bet on Becca to be one of the top contenders.
While all is well on the group date, back at the house, fertility nurse, Whitney was complaining that she hadn’t gotten one on one time with Chris and when the date card arrives, guess who’s name is read…of course Whiney, I mean Whitney.
Now back at the group date, Chris tells the ladies how he had a good time with everybody, but he gives the rose to someone that he said he wanted to have a further connection with and he gave the rose to Becca, probably the only girl that he didn’t make out with that he had one on one time with.
Whitney who spent most of her time complaining she didn’t get any one on one time with him finally has her date with Chris. There’s something about Whitney where her conversations seems forced and phony. While they are talking Chris mentions how important it is to him that he is with someone who is spontaneous, who can work a crowd or be comfortable in a party or casual setting.
And then….how convenient because here’s a wedding party that strolls down from the hill they are sitting from. Whitney who immediately notices that it’s a wedding party suggest they crash the party. Really? Really….
 At the wedding, Whitney suggests that if anyone recognizes him they should pretend they are engaged so no one suspects anything and to let the guests know the must keep top secret. My thoughts on Whitney, I’m not a fan and here’s why. This is a woman whose meeting couples day in and day out helping them have babies. She’s 29 years old and this is about the age where women start to freak out thinking if they don’t hurry up and get married, their eggs will dry up and they will die an old lady with cats.
I really hate this concept. I would like to believe as women we are allowed to make out own choices. And if a woman decides that she does not want to marry nor have children, why is she looked up as a reject? Very stupid thinking if you ask me.
What’s even more stupid is Whitney not really looking as she’s thinking anything through. More like, I will do whatever he wants just so I can get that ring.
After they crash the wedding and walk away he comes back with the rose exclaiming that Whitney absolutely made his day and he asked her if she will accept the rose. Of course she will. Time is of the essence for Whitney. SMH

On the flip side Juelia confides with the other ladies about the incident that happened with her husband committing suicide. I have a lot of issues with this. First, I’m not sure why casting felt the need to choose her. The woman clearly is still reeling from the loss of her husband. Not only the loss but how it happened still plagues her. It’s not right that a woman with so much pain give herself to a guy who will basically spend most of his time comforting her loss instead of being an equal partner.  (note: Apparently, Chris had found out through one or more the women gossiping about her)
I have to say while I empathize with her story, the fact of the matter is, while I was sitting here watching, my eyes were rolling around because it’s so dramatic and so unnecessary. It was just over-the-top and furthermore with the way she was crying, there is no way I can see any kind of relationship developing with Chris. This is this kind of stuff that you see in soap operas for pure entertainment and nothing more. Sad to see that The Bachelor continues to use women’s pain as the, “coming up next”, for their features on this show.
Britt continues to hang out all him and making out with him every chance that she gets, because she wants to feel some sense of security. Jade, the cosmetics girl runs and take him inside his house to make with out with him. Ashley I. is completely losing her mind and Jillian is walking around half naked looking for him. Sounds like a naked retreat if you ask me.
When Jade and Chris get back out of the room Jillian is in the hot tub like waiting for them and Ashley I. still running around like a chicken without a head because she needs that one on one time STAT! While the rest of the girls are looking for him they don’t realized that he’s with Jade making out on the bed and when they finally emerge, Chris goes in the hottub where Jillian monopolizes the whole time as she refused to leave when the girls started to gather around trying to get that one on one time.
A little bit about Ashley I…she’s a virgin. That’s not to say that she doesn’t have experience in relationships but in her mind, she seems to be stuck that if her tongue is not in Chris’ mouth she doesn’t stand a chance being with him and this gives her some distorted confidence that it does. She too is highly emotional and over the top. Have you noticed when she does kiss Chris, it’s almost awkward and unnatural.
And the roses goes to:
Jade
Samantha
Juelia
McKenzie
Kelsey
Britt
Megan
Carly
Ashley S. the lunatic
Nikki
Jillian
Ashley I.
The ladies who received roses on dates: Becca, Whitney and Kaitlyn

The most notable that didn’t get a rose was Amber – fake music, fake dancing, maybe the kissing was fake on Chris’ part too, a perfect example of why kissing doesn’t guarantee a rose. There was clearly no romantic connection but that didn’t stop Chris from putting his tongue in her mouth. Amber’s rejection on interview was visible without her saying a word and kudos to her that she choose not to talk and walk away and savor those tears in private. I felt really bad for her. Rejection is never the greatest feeling in the world and even worse when exposed on national television. I’m glad she walked away.
But there was one that went away “crying” in the limo and that was Jimmy Kimmel’s as Chris Harrison informed him that he was no longer needed. Chris Harrison definitely has a great sense of comedic humor and I thought this was a very good episode definitely bought something different into the show even though the one thing that wasn’t different was a new set of pathetic women.

The Bachelor Farmer Chris Soules E2 @c_soules

While everyone is celebrating at the rose ceremony that they’ve surpassed the first of the wars of the roses, yoga teacher Kimberly was speaking off camera and walks away back to the house to fetch Chris to give her a chance. Chris who seems to be the most kind, goes outside to talk to her all the while the girls are having a cow and suddenly becoming possessive of him. Because there are certain “rules” (and I use the term loosely) Farmer Chris goes back to Chris Harrison to have a conversation with him regarding Kimberly.
While he thought this may be unconventional, he decided to give her a chance. I mean he did give Tara the drunk a chance why not someone who flew from the East Coast who didn’t behave like an ass.
Needless to say, he did give her a chance while she anticipated a rose for the next ceremony. So in other words she was allowed to stay even though she didn’t have a rose.
Quite unconventional you might ask. Remember when Chris Bukowski came by surprise to meet Andi and Chris Harrison stopped him practically at the foot of the hill where is located telling him he could not meet Andi. Even while telling Andi to give her the “option”, he made sure Bukowski wasn’t even given a chance after Chris Harrison threw him under the bus. We all know why Chris Harrison was extremely protective of Andi, he liked her. And I wouldn’t be surprised that he was secretly jumping for joy when the announcement came out when Andi and Josh broke up. I mean really. Josh was not a catch at all and we all know the reason why Andi choose him, not only was she attracted to him, we always want something that doesn’t want us. Isn’t that the ways of relationships? (“Yes please”)
The next day, after all of the Kimberly “save”, Chris Harrison meets up with the girls to talk to them about the “rules”. He lets them know Chris living in the house down the driveway urges them to get as much time as they can with him that there are no rules.

Now we all know what that means….we will find a lot of these girls sneaking out to see him especially if he’s had other dates and they didn’t have one on one time with him. Even knowing this of course there will be backlash because that’s just the nature of this show.
After his spiel, he drops off the first date card which the first of the group dates and the attendees are as follows:
Jade, Tandra, Ashley, McKenzie, Kimberly, and Tara.
Now this is Kimberly’s opportunity to get to know Chris within a small group setting and the option to win a rose. Some girls expressed their discontentment that Kimberly gets to go out on this date which they shouldn’t be upset that is the whole point. However, I  can understand because if Kimberly gets a rose and they don’t, it has nothing to do with who is on the date but the chemistry that is generating on each date.
The girls are taken to TenTen Wilshire where the date card had said show me your country.  So basically it’s a pool party and how convenient they all have the bikini underneath their clothes.
Being bold, Kimberly pulls him aside and suggest that they start all over again like a first meeting and oh how cute, Chris gets up and walks into the room where she is and acts like he’s meeting her for the first time.
While the group date is going on, two of the girls decided to go to Chris’s house to see what the house looks like.
One of the girls puts Chris’s helmet on to test it out and she bangs her head in the wall, on the fridge and on the wood wall, she’s an idiot.
Back at the group date, they ladies and Chris all leave the pool party in their bikini’s walking down LA streets, over to a set of tractor-trailers which means that not only are they going to ride these in their bikinis, clearly this was going to be a contest of some sort.
Tara, our drunken country girl was super excited, as she is purely convinced that this man is going to be her husband and expresses how lucky she was to have received a rose due to she felt she was skating on thin ice thanks to her inebriated escapade during the rose ceremony.
And the race begins! But guess what? What I’m sure the girls did not expect, these tractors are snails and the first girl to the finish line wins one on one time with Farmer Chris.
Ashley I. ended up winning the race, the freelance journalist from Wayne New Jersey and you can tell that she’s from Jersey because of all the heavy make up around her eyes and the way she wears her hair and the way she talks. Anyone who watches the Housewives of New Jersey, you can hear her accent from three thousand miles away.
Now here’s my take on Ashley. This girl is not a good fit for him at all. She’s not realistic in her goals of what she believes a relationship should be. She’s also a virgin. Not that that’s anything that should be held against her, but her lack of experience and her youth will have her looking for more dick once she gets a taste of it. Believe me when I tell you, we are all creatures of habit. One dick experience will not be enough.
 Meanwhile back at the house all the girls are waiting for the next date card, Juelia is talking to the other ladies about what she plans on sharing with Farmer Chris. The first being she has a daughter, Ireland, and second that her child’s father killed himself not too long after their child was born. And now the waterworks begins.
So while she’s busy crying through the telling of the story, she brings up a point on how she feels obligated to tell Farmer Chris and this is what makes this show “sensational”.
The whole dramatic aspect of, “I have to tell a guy certain things so that it’s not a secret or I have to spill my guts”, the bottom line is in real life nobody feels the need to spill their guts all in one shot, but because this is reality TV this is what they’re told to say to make it good. Clearly, and in all respect for Juelia, this is not a person who’s prepared to be in a relationship. Death of a spouse is a big deal and while people move on with their lives as one should, the waterworks were too heavy for me to believe that this woman is prepared to be in a serious relationship and uproot her life to another state with her child. What are they going to do? Discuss her dead husband to a child that will never know her father?
Meanwhile, Ashley I. and Chris are spending some time together because she won the tractor-trailer race. I don’t think that there’s any chemistry between Chris and Ashley I. She seems to be forcing herself on Chris and her kisses seem unnatural. Not only is she a virgin but she does not know the art of kissing. This wasn’t a traditional one on one more like she won the race so she had uncharted time without disruptions.
Chris expressed his feelings in regards to the awkward situation of the group date with the six girls and he wanted to finish off the night dating one girl that that girl ended up being McKenzie. Surprise, surprise! Did Ashely I. think this was going to be her magical night as she was sent packing back the mansion with the rest of the girls? The season is being set to expect the unexpected.
Now the five girls that are left on the group date are left sitting and not very happy but no rose has been given out…yet.  Tara, who got a reprieve, seems to be taking this extremely difficult clearly this is a woman who has broken heart issues and takes everything literally.
Ashley I. was hoping to get the rest of the evening with him but I knew that wasn’t going to happen because he just doesn’t seem in to her and she seems too forceful.
Chris, now alone with his one to one with McKenzie, finds himself engaged in weird conversations, like how she said she likes guys with big noses then she asked him if he believes in aliens. I’m sure that now he sitting there regretting he picked for the date. This is the same girl who has a child and she’s a child herself…isn’t she 21 years old?
Nevertheless, Chris feels they have a lot in common, especially after she discusses on having a son, being a single mom and for some odd reason he ends up giving her a rose so for right now he’s clueless and I think it’s okay because usually the first date never outlives the rest of the season.
A new date card comes in and it’s for Megan and she’s thinking it’s a note card or a love note card I don’t understand some women in here. Hello!!! When a date card comes in with your name it means you’re going out on a date. Sheesh.
As the episode wears on, McKenzie’s shares her date with the other ladies and admits that she got the first kiss. Little does anyone know that on that first night of meeting Britt actually got the first kiss.
Chris comes over to pick up Megan for their one-on-one date and of course all the girls are very giddy and beside themselves. What a lot of the girls don’t understand usually the girls that go on a date early on usually miss out later on because a connection could build up much stronger where he will lose interest and pursue the most current. At least this is what has been apparent season after season.
They drive to an airport where there’s a small aircraft waiting for them heading to I’m not sure where.
The plane lands in Las Vegas and from there they jet on a helicopter to the Grand Canyon’s breath taking views where a picnic awaits them. Let us remind ourselves that The Bachelor series will feature all of these trips with views to die for where anyone can be infatuated easily. It’s the survival of the relationship when they can live in real life with no cameras following them.
While sharing a meal Megan goes on to tell Chris three days after she had received a phone call from the bachelor casting people her father had passed away and it just makes me think how much drama these women have. The casting agency must know all of their dramatic stuff so that they could put it in the forefront and this is probably why the fatality rate of the relationship is higher than it being successful and finding less needy women who are 25 and thinking if they don’t get married and have children within a three year span all will be lost and they will be regarded as a failure.
I remember in the in the fourth season of the Bachelor with Bob Guiney. Right down to the wire, Meredith gets a call that one of her family members passed away. Now through no fault of her own, Bob Guiney was not prepared to handle such devastation, let alone still in the process of getting to know here and the three other women that were left. Because of this he ended up sending her home, advising her that it was best that she’d be with her family.
Chris goes into a similar spiel that he gave McKenzie and asked her if she will accept the rose that he had for her and of course she does. No one will turn down a rose in this joint. LOL
The group date card arrives and the names are as follows:
Kelsey, Trina, Alyssa, Tracie, Jillian, Becca, Amber, Ashlee S, Juelia, Kaitlyn and Britt. Date card reads “till us death do us part”.
Later that evening, the limo pulled into what looks like a dilapidated building it’s a very dark and they’re basically in the middle of nowhere.
All of the sudden zombies appear around the limo basically scaring the shit out of all of them which was pretty funny and then Chis opens the car door. They look so petrified that one of them took a drink before she headed out of the car was hilarious.
The game they are about to play is paintball and the target are zombies. They have to split into teams and I’m gathering the team that wins is the one that gets to spend time with him.
Ashley starts getting technical because she thinks that you have to shoot your selves and not the zombies I’m not sure why she’s on the show. I wasn’t sure what to make of this zombie hunt and Ashley is walking around like the terminator which probably now makes sense thinking back on this episode. I guess we all would want to know how a woman will react with a “gun” in her hand. If not it seems it’s all about the frree alcohol because that’s what the focus seems to be.
 Kaitlyn, the dancer, had some one-on-one time with Chris talking about the breakdancing and the dancing that they did in etc. etc. she goes in to talk about her last relationship and how she lived out of the country and Chris feeling like wow she does great smart and sassy girl what would she want with me etc. etc. and then they go and kiss. He seems to be kissing everybody now.
I think Ashley forgot to take her medication and he definitely made a mistake picking her over the yoga teacher. And as the dates continue, Ashley seems to be all over the place. I don’t know if the whole situation has gotten the better of her (if there is a better), while Chris was in the middle of interviewing she comes in and she starts talking to him and he seems concerned. I’m left confused watching this debacle because I don’t know if she’s acting or there’s something quite not right with this woman. Chris says that she’s a unique girl it’s more like uniquely crazy.
Britt, who pulled him aside, has made it a point to keep the relationship alive from their first kiss on the first episode but when he hands out the rose he gives it to Kaitlyn.

Within the second cocktail party the girls are asking who has roses so far it’s McKenzie, Kaitlyn and Megan, leaving the rest of the ladies anxious because they don’t want to go home, name Kimberly who did not receive a rose on the initial group date.

Whitney who’s banking on a rose gives him a bottle of whiskey so that he would have some recollection of who she is and telling him that she is looking forward to building a journey with him.
These are notes I made while watching: Ashley I is a virgin. When she pulls Chris’s side to talk to him, her conversations remain to be seen, when all she wants to do is kiss which she doesn’t seem to be doing very well. I don’t know, but that was probably one of the worst and awkward kisses I’ve ever seen in my life. Don’t know why Britt is crying as far as I’m concerned she has nothing to worry about I don’t think that Ashley I is going to last very long, Jordan, also continues to make a fool out of herself too. I’m not sure why these girls are crying like they just invested a lifetime with Farmer Chris and this is only episode two. Makes me wonder what they are really crying about…is it Chris or the mere fact they won’t be on television.
And the roses goes to! Rose ceremony number two:
Britt
Ashley I.
Trina
Kelsey
Samantha
Juelia (for some reason Jillian who was standing in front of Juelia tripped and then busted out laughing)
Amber
Tracy
Jillian
Jade
Nikki
Becca
Carly
Whitney
Chris ends up giving the final rose to crazy Ashley S. and not to Kimberly the yoga teacher which makes me wonder what the fuck is going on in the Farmer’s mind.

The most notable who did not get a rose:
Tara is beside herself in tears.
Jordan gave him a very unusual bro hug like “see ya around”.
Kimberly, who didn’t make a beeline back to house, is not coming back this time.
I think the idea to this show is very sad because you watch these women walking away hysterical crying thinking that it was them who did something wrong and most times it’s not.
As for Kimberly, I’m not sure why Farmer Chris would opt out of choosing her and keeping Ashley S. The woman is not all there and clearly there’s no connection, other than her “crazy” is good for television.

The Bachelorette – Episode Five – Whose Intentions Are Real

The Bachelorette – Episode 5 – Who’s Intentions Are Sincere

The dates have now moved to France.

Andi meets up with Chris and he puts her in the “hot seat” and asks her if she’s in love. Clearly she is but says she’s in love with more than one guy.

I don’t know. Infatuation is more like it.

Unfortunately the one on one date is with arrogant Josh who thinks he’s the best thing since slice bread.

He discussed being chosen for the one on one in an extremely presumptuous tone while Andi only expresses concerns over his background the type of guy he is and how that was her type but it never worked out.

What makes her think that Josh will be different?

While they are smooching it up the date card arrives.

The group date as follows: Marcus, Dylan, Chris, Cody, Marguel, JJ, Nick, Patrick, Andrew

While on the date with Josh, here’s the one thing I don’t get…she says she’s afraid that the relationship may be solely physical. Really? The guy is not good looking at all.

So back and forth as the television goes, JJ and Marquios are engaged in a conversation about something JJ claims he heard Andrew say that, “blackie got a rose”.

First off I find it hard to believe that something like this happen. I think ABC should be ashamed of themselves by inviting racist comments into the show. They are already being accused of being racist…why? Well look at every Bachelor and Bachelorette of the show. And we had one Latin but he was from Brazil or wherever he was from…the fact is this is America. Latin is regarded as Puerto Rican or Mexican, and Black is regarded as the American Black person. If the producers chose a black person from London with a British accent, the person is British, it’s not the same.  So yeah shame on ABC. I thought Marquios was a pretty cool guy but we all knew he wasn’t going to last. It’s just the way of the show. I just think it’s fucked up that Marqual couldn’t just be a great guy, we had to go ahead and invite color. SMH

I think the things Marquios said were quite disturbing but the reality is, that’s the way people view this show. I think if ABC would make anything right, let’s make Marquios the next Bachelor…why the fuck not?

As for Andrew, he’s just a jerk all around. I have no words for a pretentious jerk. When Josh was yelling at him about how he’s there for the right reasons and that he didn’t appreciate Andrew getting a number from another girl, he might was well been yelling in a mirror because Andrew and Josh are in the the same.

I had to force myself to watch their date and listen to him drone on about a story on how a girl cheated on him. Boy he sure seemed hurt and affected by that….His story was just as phony as the next counterfeit criminal.

Enough of them.

The group date was another laugh while the men made fools of themselves as Mimes. What else is there to discuss?

Oh wait the argument that Barnacle Cody had with Nick because Nick is over confident that he will wind up with Andy. I mean look Barnacle Cody was there for entertainment purposes only. He was an idiot from the start and there was no way Andi was going to take him on any home town date. If he thought that then he’s stupid.

Farmer Chis had comments to say about Nick and well as Barnacle when he had his one on one with Andi. #Wahbulance anyone?

And even though Andi confronts Nick, she sure didn’t have a problem finding her tongue in his mouth.

Marquious confront Andrew about the “blackie” comment but that’s not as relevant as going back to now Andi and Marcus making out on the couch.

Again going back to Andrew and Marquios I think this was just a low blow on getting ratings. Bravo to ABC….SMH.

But if JJ did make up that story, he is just fucked up across the board to make up something like that. If that was his way of staying there, that was a jackass move. But then again he looks like a jackass so perhaps it came natural for him.

At the end of the group date JJ the Jackass gets the rose.

On the one on one date with boring Brian, Andi finds out the he’s not comfortable in the kitchen. They make a terrible dinner which only leads them to a restaurant where she ends up giving him a rose. I had to do the short version so I won’t fall asleep writing about this dude.

At the Rose Ceremony, Andi has a conversation with Chris and tells him that she does not need a cocktail party and decides to move forward to cutting three guys.

My guess as I was watching was Barnacle Cody, Marquios and Andrew.

Final roses handed out:

Marcus, Nick, Farmer Chris, Dylan, and Barnacle Cody (fuck me)

Who went home: Andrew, Patrick and Marquios

More coming soon!

Until then.

The Bachelorette – Episode Four – All About Eric

The Bachelorette Episode Four All about Eric

So this episode concentrated towards the end on Eric because this would be the last episode he would be on and never seeing “The Men Tell All”

But lets start from the beginning.

Andi goes on a one on one with Dylan. Their date is a steam train ride. It seemed awkward because he’s quiet and doesn’t say much. It must be a Boston thing.

He finally talks about what happened to his brother and sister in regards to their drug overdoses and how it affected he and his family. While this is all sad, and believe me I empathized, this is the kind of thing that can drive a wedge in any potential relationship. I think it happened with Meredith Phillips in the Bob Guiney season. A relative of hers had past away and she was boo hooing the whole time. Clearly this wasn’t going to work out and when she became the Bachelorette number two she was only picking the guy who was the cutest but clearly there was no chemistry there at all.

I think Dylan has a lot to resolve and clearly is not ready to be in any kind of relationship as cute as he is.

The group date was pretty interesting.

Who: JJ, Farmer Chris, Andrew, Eric, Nick, Marquel, Tasos, Barnacle Cody, Brian, Patrick and Josh.

Now while all these men have egos to adhere, I don’t think anyone has a bigger ego than Josh. In their basketball game it was the winning team gets to spend more time with Andi, of course the team Josh was on lost. I don’t think anyone savored that pleasurable moment more than me. Typical middle of the season pick where men are pitted against one another.

During the one on one time after the game, Andi and Eric have some time and one of her concerns is that she does know Eric very well. Eric was expressing concern that everything seemed so great in the beginning and now Andi is just a stranger and she wasn’t giving him signs.

Josh on the other side of things was reeling that he lost the game like he has claims on Andi. What a jerk…please tell me you’re seeing this too.

I can’t see her and Brian together at all.

Then she making out with Nick with her tongue all in his mouth but Brian gets the rose. #Confused

Here is the part I don’t get. How are you hugging up on some guy and making out with him in a fucking corner but give the rose to someone entirely different.

Marcus got the next one on one date the next day and of course it’s the climbing over something date where somewhere in the middle of the fucking air they make out.

Um I think it was cute in the first Spiderman….it’s now a tired thing on the Bachelor/Bachelorette commodity.

Needless to say, I think that Marcus and Andi fit well together.

I think he will be the last man standing (and I haven’t cheated on the reality Steve site either) but this is what I think will happen in the end, she will choose him.

Yes, he did get the rose on this date and so did Dylan on his date and Brian for the group date.

The rose ceremony Eric and Andi had words with each other. The scene played out that Eric was not happy with the fact that Andi was not “present” in their relationship and he was trying to understand what had gone wrong.  But then it got heated when he accused her of acting for the camera and having a poker face.

With all do respect, the fact was Andi was not into Eric. And while he said beautiful things about love and wanting to be in love, it seemed though that he was not ready only because of the way he acted towards her. Now, one can call it anger or resentment, who knows. He was just too angry in my book. And sad that that was the last conversation they had.

With no rose ceremony shown on television that night, after Andi and her outburst on, “if ya’ll are real and if ya’ll don’t want to be here, ya’ll ya’ll ya’ll….” Yeah we got it.

The one that went home in this episode. Tasos. Bye Tasos, Good night. Bye Bye. SMH. Don’t even give him a proper send off.

Andi and Chris Harrison had a sit down to discuss Eric but that was also a Goodnight moment for me.

Clearly the rest of the guys got a rose, including Barnacle Cody.

Until then.

Loves and Hugs,
