The Bachelor Farmer Chris Soules E6 @c_soules

screen-shot-2015-01-27-at-7-39-32-pmAs we continue on with Kelsey on the floor crying her eyes out all the girls are looking around like what the fuck is going on.

It was time for Kelsey to turn up the notch by play acting a panic attack and it was poor acting let me tell you. I think women will do anything to get a man even going as far as faking a panic attack. I mean since there was no cocktail hour, why not?

As the blurred face woman was administering the oxygen mask, she proceeds talking to her and asking her questions and one of the questions was, “is there anybody I can get for you”, well we all know that answer to that question… “Please get me Chris, I need him here”….ugh!. And while she’s on the floor asking for him she says I’m going to get a rose tonight for sure he might as will give me the bunch.

Even though I am not a Carly fan, she made good points on the faux panic attack and Kelsey using this as a means to get Chris to feel sorry for her so that she can get a rose. Gee, Chris didn’t feel sorry for Amber when he pretended fake music dance with her, made out with her and sent her home all in the same night…

As the rose ceremony begins Chris begins the elimination process by handing out said roses: Jade, Kaitlyn, Megan, Becca, Ashley, and unfortunately the final Rose goes to Kelsey which means that Samantha and McKenzie did not get roses. Now even though McKenzie was way too young, I think that Samantha was a great contender over Kelsey. WTF?

Now that Santa Fe has come to an end, the bachelor family of ladies now takes their journey to Deadwood, South Dakota.

This is the episode where they will be a one on one date, a group date, and a two on one date where most times the women that get this date always believes that one of them will get the rose while the other goes home. Not necessarily true.

Past episodes of the bachelor, have featured that on these two on one dates one stays and one goes. However, things have changed due to that sometimes the bachelor or bachelorette not have a connection with either one and will let both of them go, which I believe is the purpose of these two on one dates. So if there’s anyone thinking that if they get a two on one date that one will be salvaged half of the times they are not.

the-bachelor-recap-chris-beccaThe first one on one date is with Becca, who is also a virgin hasn’t told Chris yet that she is. They go on a horseback riding date, which is pretty boring because all the drama is back in the house and so much more entertaining.  All the girls are convinced that Kelsey is a liar and a drama queen and that she made up this whole story about having a panic attack just so that she could get a rose from Chris, which, sadly worked.

Kelsey walks into the room and Whitney takes the floor to address the fact that she feels and so does everybody else that Kelsey is a liar and faked the panic attack because at some point they heard her laughing. In Kelsey’s defense she claims that she does not remember laughing. FYI Kelsey is a counselor, which means she’s good at talking her way out of her emotions so that they make sense to others.  I think Kelsey is a great actress, she knows how to play those emotions really well. I have not been reading the tabloids but if there’s anything that I’m sure that any of these rags would say that probably her in-laws did not like her and she was probably the cause of his death. Would not be surprised about that

I also have to commend the casting people who continue to have success in picking out the craziest women (and men) who would add the drama effect to the show.

On the date with Becca and Chris, I was sitting and thinking as I was watching, how boring Becca must be. She reminded me of Jen Scheft, when Andrew Firestone was in the mist of picking his “bride” to be. Which is probably a perfect scenario  because it wouldn’t be a surprise if he picked her. She doesn’t really have a real career that can take her away from living a farm life.

And while she’s also fearful of rejection in relationships, back at the house the date card comes in for the group date. No one wants the two on one except for Ashley who is very excited to get the two on one date because she is convinced that she will be the one that Chris will walk off with on that date especially if the two on one is Kelsey.

The group date card it reads as follows: Whitney, Jade, Britt, Kaitlyn, Carly and Megan which leaves Kelsey and Ashley on the two on one.

Now that Ashley knows that she’s going to be on the two on one date she is purely convinced that she will be walking off with the rose and Kelsey will be sent home. Kelsey on the other hand is laughing her butt off exclaiming that it might as well be a one on one date as he and Ashley have nothing together.

Back to Becca and Chris where she gets the rose and kisses Chris for the first time.

Now that that’s over.

On the group date all the girls are challenged to write a song and sing it to Chris. They will all take turns and they are inspired by Big and Rich, duo country musicians.  Carly, the boat entertainer singer was so happy, this was her element and positive that she would win this contest and get one on one time with him. She sang beautifully but the one who ended up winning was…Britt. Being that the song had bought him to tears, Carly’s wonderful singing voice did nothing for Chris.

The two on one date card comes in and of course it reads one stay one goes let’s have fun in the Badlands which seems to have become tradition where the two on one dates are held in the middle of nowhere and when the one is chosen flies off with the bachelor/bachelorette the other one is just left behind.

I’m glad that Ashley has a lot of self-esteem for herself.

Back at the group date Chris is talking with all of the girls and trying to comfort their insecurities, now the group is getting smaller and feelings are getting more intense. And that doesn’t seem to matter because even though it’s a group date, it seems it’s a Britt and Chris date. And during his one on one with Britt outside where the group was they were sitting at a table when Chris takes Britt’s hand and tells her he has something to show her. He grabs her hand and they go running outside.

the-bachelor-recap-chris-soules-britt-big-rich-concertHe takes her to a Big and Rich show where they’re dancing and kissing and in their own world. In her interview she expressed excitement in how much she loves country music and these are her favorite guys, and the other girls have made comments that Britt does not like country music that she does not want to live on a farm, she doesn’t want children and she loves being single. But I have not seen yet Britt say these things and it certainly didn’t land in the final edit, perhaps on the cutting room floor.

On the stage with Big and Rich, Chris and Britt are dancing and kissing without a care in the world (as love should be) but back at the restaurant are a group of bitter ladies wondering where did they go. And in front of the large crowd, Chris offers the rose to Britt on stage which leads to a large cheer and two people who seem really in love.

When they get back they see Britt with the rose and they are all extremely and visably upset and it changes the entire mood of the what was the group date.

I was laughing at this part because Chris is dripping with sweat as they were dancing at the concert and having fun and then having to go back to these disgruntle looking ladies while Britt is with a smile on her face with the rose was just completely priceless.

Whitney was very upset that he took her to the Big and Rich show. Why would he do that, Britt doesn’t like country music and she doesn’t appreciate that type of music like she does.

Carly is extremely upset because she feels that she has laid out her feelings and once again she feels they’re not being reciprocated.

And although Whitney says that her heart is pure, she’s also 29 years old. And women who are at that age start freaking out. It’s now a race against time, to get married and have children before their eggs dry up.

And now on to the good part of the show, the two on one date with Kelsey and Ashley.

They have both packed up their suitcases with the anticipation that one of them is going to come back.  As Chris is waiting for them he doesn’t seem that he’s very excited about this date, while delusional Kelsey is acting like she has a real relationship with him and can’t wait to finally have some time with him. A helicopter flies them over to the Badlands where there is a makeshift bed with wine and fruit waiting for them.

ashley and chris at the badlandsThe first thing Ashley does is grab Chris so she can throw herself at him and tell him what a faux Kelsey really is. But first she has to plant her mouth on him to ensure that she gets a rose at the end of this date.

Ashley tells Chris that Kelsey is not a good person, she’s a fake and she does not gel in a group situation. Ashley reminds me of that man in the Pauletta All Fruit commercial where everyone is at the table all proper asking to pass the Pauletta All Fruit and she would yell out “could you please pass the jelly”.

Having a real concern with Kesley, he brings back Ashley and tells Kelsey to come with him for a chat asked her point-blank how she is getting along with everybody in the house. Because Kelsey is a counselor, she knows how to talk her way out of uncomfortable situations and not deal with herself but turn the tables around on other people and blatantly lies to him how well she’s getting along with everyone at the house. At that point he sells Ashley out by telling her exactly what she said. By far a priceless moment! The fake waterworks turn on as Kelsey plays victim and wonders why anyone would say that about her. If anyone was watching this episode, trust when I say, you have got to be a fool if you missed the phony in this woman.

When she comes back, visibly angry, Ashley is sitting on the bed, and there’s a silence for about a minute as Kelsey is staring Ashley down and Ashley not returning the stare back until she turns around and Kelsey says to her, “I know what you did”.

stare down

Notice that Kelsey’s eyes were completely dry. What happened to those tears of victim? Kelsey-And-Ashley i know

And as Kelsey brags on how she’s smarter than everyone else she conveniently forgets that Ashley also has her Masters because she is a journalist and you can’t be a journalist without a fucking masters degree.

After Kelsey confronts Ashley about what she said Kelsey goes running back to Chris crying her eyes out, asking why she told him.

On what was supposed to be a two on one date, Chris did not really make an effort to get to know either one of these women. If anything he was on another side of the Badlands deciphering on whether or not these two women should be kept around.

With all of Ashley efforts and confrontation and the boo hooing, Chris finally grew some balls and told her this is not going to work out and he cannot see her meshing with his life. The minute he tells her this, the next thing she does is throw Britt under the bus accusing her of not wanting the same thing that Chris is looking for in a relationship. Not a good look Ashley.

ashley crying at the badlands

When Kelsey sees Ashley coming from the hill crying her eyes out she is purely convinced that she is going to get the rose. Finally the “unsmart” girl is gone. (BTW unsmart is not a real word)

Back at the hotel room, someone comes in to fetch a suitcase and as the girls are watching they see that she takes Ashley’s suitcase and not Kelsey and this leaves them completely perplexed because they can’t understand what he sees in Kelsey. Little do they know that while this is going on Chris is going back to tell Kelsey, she too must go home.

Ashley was a complete basket case. She did not see any of this coming and was completely delusional of what she thought was a relationship with Chris.

It’s funny when Chris told Kelsey that he had sent Ashley home and she proceeded to comfort him telling him that it was a loss. I don’t think that she saw coming that Chris would be sending her home too and when he did, she put her game face on and pretended to agreed with him.

chris telling kelsey goodbye

Chris gets back on the helicopter to go back to his hotel room, leaving both Ashley who’s hysterical crying and Kelsey at the Badlands alone and back at the girls room another person comes in to fetch Kelsey’s suitcase and from there the party begins. Not only does it make them excited but they broke out the champagne and celebrated the end of Kelsey.

I can’t wait for the women tell all because I know that Chris Harrison is going to ask her the questions that I’m sure everybody is asking while they’re watching this what the fuck is on Kelsey’s mind and what planet does she live on.

Until then.

Loves and Hugs,

The Bachelor Farmer Chris Soules E5 @c_soules

In this episode the girls are now leaving the house to go to Santa Fe, New Mexico where all of their dates will be.

Chris Harrison informs them that there will be two one-on-one dates and one group date.

Now that there are 11 girls left farmer Chris feels that they’ve passed the “getting to know you” stage and they should be all at a place where real and true relationships are forming.

Kelsey expressed the desperation that she really needed the one on one as well as Ashley while Whitney claims that she is falling for him (already?).

And surprise (and why?) Carly gets the first one on one date.

While Chris is waiting for Carly he says that he feels that she’s the perfect person for this date and feels they have a great friendship, but do they have anything more than that?

Carly and Chris’ date was guided by a spiritual guru who focuses on love and relationship through meditation.

The sessions consisted of playing a game of trust and Chris was blindfolded while Carly fed him an assortment of food and fruit, which instead of being sensual, turned out to a be sloppy mess and lacked a lot of chemistry.

carly being fakeI’m not sure why this date occurred, meaning the type of date. I really don’t think that this date was not appropriate and it was not a real way for anyone to get to know each other considering that this was a first one on one with Carly. They would’ve been better off having dinner and talking and getting to know each other. I don’t see Carly with him at all and had they had dinner and talked, probably Chris would have found out that no only does she have serious issues but she’s also not a very nice person. Hmmm no wonder her boyfriend of two years didn’t want to touch her.

And this love guru, if she’s such an expert she would have had them do a different type of exercise. Is this how she handles a couple on their first date? I don’t think I would want to strip with someone that I may not be interested in.

Cutting back to the ladies back at the house, Kelsey shares with the girls about her husband dropping dead on his way to work and Ashley I. found that it was strange that she decided to share the story and how nonchalant she was as she was telling the story.

I can sort of agree only because when Juelia was talking about her husband killed himself she was literally falling apart.

The group date card comes in and the names are read as follows Jade, Megan, Kaitlyn, Whitney, McKenzie, Becca, Samantha, Ashley and Kelsey.

Now this makes Britt excited because she has the one on one date with Chris and leaves Kelsey annoyed that again she’s stuck on another group date.

After the intimacy date Carly and Chris head back and have a dinner and she begins to discuss her past relationship. Apparently she spent two years with a man that she wasn’t physical with and how this affected her deeply. She wasn’t sure where the relationship was going and why wasn’t this man interested in taking the relationship a step further. First off, this is a major red flag. Hello Chris, wake up and smell the issues. Any woman that’s sharing this clearly has something going on. Really? Why would anyone stay with a man that’s not interested in her physically? What is the point of staying in that type of relationship? Carly clearly has some low self esteem issues going on and with all that being said, what does Chris do…he gives her the “blah blah” speech on how beautiful she is and gives her a rose.

Hashtag: Confusion.

On the group date all of the girls figured out that they were going white water rafting for which of course does not please Kelsey as she is focused on having that one on one time with him.

Chris expressed how important it is that a woman enjoys the outdoors because most of his life is spent outdoors and listening to Ashley I. who has clearly convinced herself that she is the one for him.

It’s so funny when something happens to someone on a group date and other girls start to make fun of what the situation, as per Jade, who fell in the water, so now everyone thinks she’s playing helpless victim so Chris can come to her rescue.

Whitney, who was on this group date expressing how important time is with Chris and how she really needs to have that one on one time with him now that the rafting date is over. As they are in the lounge waiting for Chris, he’s intercepted by Jordan who was eliminated in week two and for some reason she look completely different I didn’t even recognize who she was when she stepped over to Chris.

jordan and chris

She seemed very humbled as she expressed how important second chances were and apologized for her behavior. Blaming the wine she drank, she told Chris that it wasn’t really who she was and she didn’t get a chance to represent herself appropriately. Against the better judgment of himself, he decided to do that and bought Jordan right into the lion’s nest when the group of ladies were waiting for him and were none too pleased when he walked in with Jordan.

After some discontent from the ladies as each went on their one on one, Chris pulls her out from the group and sends her packing yet again. I’m not sure why Jordan came back in the first place, I mean is Chris that much of a contender that she drove all the way from Colorado to see if she can win his heart? I don’t know thinking back on the ladies that Chris got rid of, he definitely let go some good women that should have been there.

Of course Ashley had much to say on Jordan’s short return because she really thinks that her make out sessions locks in a rose for her. Apparently she believes she is the right person for Chris when she’s not. She also wasted her one to one time to compare herself to everyone else and failing to use that time to get to know one another…okay okay we all know that’s a waste of time. Ashley won’t even last to the top four.

chris and britt on hot air balloon The date card arrives for Britt. The card reads “the skies the limit”. Uh oh is this another jump off a high rise building moment? And Britt who would do anything for Chris spills the water works because she’s afraid of heights and she just cannot do anything that will involve jumping off anything.  Seriously who can blame her? How many dates have lasted with someone jumping off the building, making out (because it’s a romantic moment) and never getting to a top four?  Absolutely pointless!

Getting back to Jordan, (afterthought) even though Jordan seemed sincere, I was still feeling as I was watching that Farmer Chris is getting rid of some good women so why are Ashley and Kelsey there? Clearly these are two women who aren’t for him.

The priceless moment is when Chris gives his speech before handing the rose out how this particular woman makes him feel special and that he thinks that they have a lot of potential together. I know that Ashley didn’t think he was talking about her and why so shocked when Whitney got the rose. No one at that date looked happy after he gave her the rose.

Here are my thoughts on Whitney which I touched upon when she was talking to his sisters. She seems forced not a force to be reckoned with. And I also understand Ashley’s point about Whitney being a fake. I think it’s just coming to a point where she works as a fertility nurse seeing and working with all of these couples who are looking to have children. It’s kind of like if you’re hanging out at the barbershop where women with long hair would get short hair cuts, after you made it a point you would never chop off your hair.  Sooner or later, the short hair would look so appealing that you leave the barber shop with short hair.  Whitney is a career woman. Who will need a fertility specialist in a town of population 427?

The next day, Chris sneaks into Britt’s room to surprise her for their one on one date. As she’s getting up I’m back in what Carly said about Britt not bathing and goes to sleep with makeup. I think if women do that sooner or later they will care about their face and wash it and not worry that their husband will judge them for a natural look. However I did notice she wore those red sneakers quite often.

Terrified that she may have to jump off a building with Chris, she’s pleasantly surprised that it’s a hot air balloon ride.

While Britt and Chris were out on their date, Ashley gossiping that Britt had confided in her how Britt was happy being single she doesn’t understand why anyone would want to have kids. So in other words Ashley is insinuating that Britt is a liar and not here for the right reasons.

Carly,  who’s now emotionally invested, is worried that Chris’ relationship with Britt is a stronger connection than hers which leave her overly emotional. This is her first “relationship” where someone actually reciprocated their feelings towards her. So now she’s afraid in the time that she’s invested with Chris that it will fall through because of Britt.

Kelsey also chimes in with her comments about Chris and ruining her relationship with him. Um Kelsey, what relationship with Chris? Upon Chris’ return on his date with Britt (or it could have been the next day), Kelsey takes matters into her own hands and runs to Chris’ hotel room because the story must be told about her husband dying.

I’m pretty sure that Kelsey was going home this episode and from the looks of things she may have saved herself with her crocodile tears referring to her husband’s death.

At the rose ceremony nobody looked happy. They are all looking forward to having that extra one on one time with him for the cocktail rose ceremony because right now the only women who have roses are Whitney, Britt and Carly.

Tensions are running high as the women with no roses all express concern that they didn’t get enough time with Chris and while everyone is genuinely worried, Kelsey chimes in that she feels very comfortable that she will be getting a rose. Hmm talk about being overly overconfident and arrogant. And then she has a weird friendship with Britt because she seems to be hanging all over her but yet wasn’t she talking about her while Britt was on her one on one.

Chris comes in and makes a speech about a conversation he had with Kelsey that put things into perspective and in the middle of that speech he was overcome with emotion and walked out of the room. Up until then no one knew Kelsey had a conversation with him in private, in his hotel room. Now Kelsey had no choice but to disclose that she had this conversation with him and basically took advantage of the situation because she knew she wasn’t getting a rose.

Carly made a good point (surprisingly), saying that before Kelsey had this conversation with Chris he was fine, but then because she went behind everyone’s back, having this conversation, there’s a strong possibility that somebody else is going home because of what she did.

While Chris was talking with Chris Harrison, Kelsey tells the girls she knows what Chris is going to do and what decisions he’s going to make, and how time is precious, blah blah blah, going off on this weird tirade like she knows what the fuck she’s talking about.

Kelsey has barely had any kind of relationship with Chris and for her to say the things that she saying and talking about how she has to say goodbye to people because she knows what choices he made what the fuck is wrong with this woman. How do you sit there and cry your eyes out and in the midst of that start laughing like some kind of fucking weirdo.

Chris Harrison walks into let the girls know that farmer Chris has made up his mind and there will be no cocktail hour. Chris had made up his mind and he did not want to delay the inevitable, leaving now all the ladies uncertain about their future with Chris.

Ashley who relied on a make out session, was in hysteric of tears and Kelsey who was super duper confident, seems to be shitting in her pants as she gets up to use the ladies room where all of the sudden screams start  blaring from the other room and what looks like a paramedic helping none other than Kelsey who’s now on the floor, crying her eyes out…WTF?

kelsey on the floor crying

To be continued…

On the flip side of life

So…recently I took on a part time job to supplement my income while working on the magazine and the tons of projects I am currently working on. 

I’m not a great fan of my part time job because part of the requirement is standing up for most of the day which I have found that this is making me physically ill. I have had friends tell me I will get used to is but after the way I felt last night I’m sitting here praying for things to desperately change now rather than later. 

I’m feeling as though certain things are at a stand still and I know they are not but I can’t help the way I feel for this moment. 

With that in mind, here I am at a not so great paying job, standing up for most of the day dealing with customers that for some reason think they are better than you. 

It’s so funny and true this saying, “never step on the toes today of the ass you could be kissing tomorrow”. 

Even saying “good morning” or “goodnight” is so hard to say back. The same holds true with the people I work with. Dobbed with globs of make up, one seems to have her nose so far up her ass, I believe that she doesn’t believe her shit stinks.

This would be the same person that would apply for the make up artist job that I will eventually need and how priceless will that moment be when she walks into my office and finds that it’s me that is looking to hire.

While I know myself there have been times I didn’t treat people my best, there was a reason for that. I’m not the kind of person who is rude at first meeting. However, if I find out fucked up shit about you believe me when I tell you, you will be cut off faster than getting a take out dinner at your local restaurant.

There really is no reason to treat anyone with disregard, unless you have something to hide. And if that’s the case, that’s when I stay far away from people.

I have listened to lots of people disclose their personal problems and secrets with me, things that I will take with me to the grave because unlike most people, the minute a friendship breaks up they both thing they are right by gossiping their secrets and that is just dead wrong.

On the flip side I have listened to people closely and their own words get them in trouble. 

What is the moral of this story?

Treat people right even if they come at you wrong. It doesn’t mean you have to be their friend, keep it moving. Period. The End.
