Introducing Farmer Chris Soules @c_soules – The Bachelor Season 19

The show finally takes off with Chris talking about his life and his farm life, the excitement of meeting 25 women as he prepares for this season as the new Bachelor.
As the girls prepare in the first limo they’re excited to meet him they come out as follows:
Limo number one:
Britt 27 – Long hug and a lot of heavy breathing, extremely emotional
Whitney 29 – fertility nurse
Kelsey 28 – school counselor
Megan 24 – make up artist
Ashley I 26 – freelance journalist
Limo number two:
Trina 33 – special education teacher
Reegan 28 – donate tissue specialist- she bought a fake heart I thought that was pretty tacky.
Tara 26 – sport fishing enthusiasts comes in with shorts boots and a plaid shirt
And when she walked in all the girls looked at her like there was something wrong with her and there was absolutely nothing wrong with her. But later went to one of the rooms and changed to a black dress and got into the limo again and reintroduced herself (I can only gather producers ideas)
Amber 29 – bartender with the stupid teddy bear.
Nikki 26 – former cheerleader
Limo number three:
Amanda 24 the ballet teacher that knows nothing and does nothing and lids for free with her mother
Jillian 25 – news reporter
McKenzie 21 – the mother of a one-year-old child
Ashley S 24 – hairstylist Brooklyn New York
Kaitlyn 29 – dance instructor – and she said something really derogatory that just took Chris aback.
Chris Harrison comes in and tells Chris to go back and meet the girls that have come in to meet him and there’s only 15 girls so everybody’s confused on some of the girls are feeling relieved because the crowd is so small and little do they know that there’s 15 more girls that are coming in.
The first conversation he has is with Britt and he seems to have a strong connection with her. But she’s talking about Iowa like she really is interested and I don’t think she is. My own personal opinion, someone who comes from Hollywood California, sooner or later they’re going to get bored. They were so deep in their conversation that at some point they were looking at each other like they were going to kiss but they didn’t.
It’s barely through half of the episode and Chris Harrison brings out the first impression rose (and the other women haven’t even arrived yet), cutting back to the “red carpet”, live show where the audience was watching the first episode, Chris Harrison takes comments from the audience. I ended up fast forwarding that part.
Amanda, the ballet instructor, who initially greeted him by making him turn around and covering his eyes when she handed him a note that he had secret admirer, still had not known she was the secret admirer until they started talking. I’m not sure about her. I’m confused as to why at some point that she was talking and her eyes seemed to open wider and wider and then the camera panned right into her eyes like she was a crazy person. Didn’t her mother say not to embarrass her.
While the conversation and drinks are flowing, Chris Harrison comes back in to grab Chris and gives him the news that there are fifteen more girls to meet.  Now the other fifteen girls are seen another limo pull in and they are losing their fucking minds.
Limo number four
Samantha 27 fashion designer
Michelle 25 wedding cake decorator
Juelia 30 aesthetician i’m not sure why they have to spell a normal name fucked up
Becca 25 chiropractor assistant
Tandra 30 executive assistant came in on a motorcycle and she’s hot
 Limo number five
 Alissa 24 flight attendant
Jordan 24 student
Nicole 31 real estate agent and she’s wearing a fucking pig nose why I don’t know
She said to make him feel at home who does that fucking idiot she’s never going to live that shit down.
Britney 26 WWE diva in training
Carly 29 cruise entertainer comes in with a fucking microphone with mini speaker sounding like an asshole. Chris did not look impressed at all (but later was chosen in the rose ceremony)
Limo number six
Tracy 29 fourth-grade teacher
Bow 25 plus size model
Kimberly 28 yoga instructor
Kara 25 high school soccer teacher
Jade 28 cosmetics developer sparkle there
Now that Chris has met all of the girls he begins the daunted tasks of getting to know the ladies as each one kicks the other out to get to know him. Chris Harrison advises him that there will be a rose ceremony, get to know the girls, talk to them and then decipher who is best for him, at least in this round.
As he’s talking to the women, Kaitlin is having a conversation with him and I guess she decides to teach him how to dance. There’s something very ghetto about her I don’t know what it is. But it’s funny when girls are just being themselves with a guy and there are other women around to make fun of them I don’t know why that is. I think any woman that wants to be with a guy would like to show off a little bit of themselves and it worked for her favor.
On the interview portion of getting Chris’ take on all of the ladies he said, “he wished he was a polygamist right now”, which was completely hilarious.
Ashley has been acting like a fool all night long complaining that ever since the new girls came in that they did not have time to talk to him so she goes and she disrupt the WWE Diva girl by trying to dismiss her with a flower. Must have been the alcohol.
Tara, also had a bit much to drink was acting like a drunken fool I highly doubt he will give her a rose (but he did anyway)
 He gave the first impression rose to Britt. And the first kiss of the season begins.
Now that the first impression rose has been given out, Chris Harrison comes in and ready to steal Farmer Chris away so that he can begin his decision on who stays and who goes at the rose ceremony.
When they go back to the Bachelor Live, Chris Harrison is posing questions about the kiss between Farmer Chris and Britt, Michelle Money says that she heard a rumor that she does not shower makes you wonder why Michelle Money is still single. Why would she say something so stupid? And I like her; she’s gorgeous, not much going on in the head.
Chris is clearly nervous about this rose ceremony and goes in wondering if the choices he will make will be the right choices.
First Rose Ceremony
Kate Lynn the dancer
Ashley I
In the middle of handing out the roses Chris stops and walks out without saying anything. Realizing that Tara is very much out of it – he comes back and proceeds.
Of course it ends with the girls crying their eyes out not having had the chance to get to know him more or was it they didn’t get their chance in the spotlight….who knows.
For some reason the yoga instructor took it really hard and in the middle of the interview she decided to go back to the house and did something on conventional and decided to steal Chris. However we won’t find out what will happen until next week.
Do you agree with Chris keeping Tara? Vote!

Welcome to the Red Carpet Event….wha…? The Bachelor Season 19

Welcome to the Red Carpet Event….wha…?
Who: Chris Soules from Arlington Iowa is the next bachelor due to not being chosen from last season’s bachelorette he became a popular bachelor and owns a six thousand acre  land. Chris appeared in the Andi season and became a fan favorite. I called him Farmer Chris on my wordspress blog which Chris Harrison adopted.
The opening of The Bachelor with the live red carpet event, for me was a step too far.
I felt that I was forced to watch something that was so completely unnecessary. I was not happy when I looked at my DVR and saw the bachelor was three hours I said to myself, ‘three hours of what?”
Sean and Catherine showed up to the red carpet along with Deanna and her husband when you have all of these people coming out of the limo like they are someone famous and they’re not. These are single people who have continuously made for names of themselves on television when it comes to dating what people do in private we have seen them displayed on the show.
Chris Harrison interviews Sean and Catherine basically nosing in on their relationship asking about when they plan on having babies which I think is rather personal but that is personal for anybody not just for people who have displayed looking for love on TV.
Moving forward Chris interviews Marcus and Lacy who met on the Bachelor in Paradise show and ended up falling in love and getting engaged rather quickly. They talked about having a wedding in the summertime but no date has been proposed yet.They go on to introduce some of the girls that will meet Farmer Chris starting with Britt from Los Angeles, rather pretty, she’s a waitress. She went on to discuss her last relationship, that she did not have sex at all and that she benefited from the relationship by appreciating who he was without the physical aspect. Apparently she gives out free hugs.
Jillian from D.C is 25 and she’s a national news producer. OMG this girl is fierce she was lifting the only weights definitely a training type of a girl can’t see her with Chris because she is too much out there.
Amanda 24 from Lake in the Hills Illinois she’s A ballerina instructor. In her interview she says she lives with her mom, she likes not having to pay bills and not cooking and not doing much of anything. Clearly not a woman design for Chris who’s an active farmer. I don’t think he will appreciate having a partner who’s lazy.
Whitney, a fertility nurse is 29 years old from Chicago Illinois. She helps couples who are struggling to have babies.  Being a nurse and being a fertility nurse seems just about right for Chris.
McKenzie, 21 is too young. I don’t know what she does but she already has a child who she named after a vegetable Kale.
Moving on to flight attendant Alyssa, 24 from New Jersey and cute she seems like the right girl for him.
Kelsey, 28, lives in Austin Texas and a school counselor is a widow for year and four months. Her husband was walking to work when his heart just stopped. Clearly emotional about this death, after all it was her husband, someone she was building a life with makes me question if she is a good candidate for someone who is looking to settle down. She’s very pretty and has a great body and seems really upbeat. Looks like from the coming attractions, she’s a contender.
Cutting back to the bachelor premiere on this useless red carpet Chris Harrison interviews and Andi and her big headed pick Josh who was not a fan favorite at all at least not for me. I’m not sure where Chris Harrison’s head is that he actually believes that these people walk down the street and they have the paparazzi chasing after them. They seemed really lovey dovey. The whole time Andi and Josh were talking to Chris Harrison, she was massaging Josh’s back. I thought to myself, “Wow maybe there is something there after all.” – (this was before I found out just the other day (Thursday. Jan 8th they broke up – more comments here)
I guess the useful thing about this red carpet was the Break up with Juan Pablo and Nikki because she was the most hated woman in the Juan Pablo season.
Chris Harrison had asked her about what was going through her mind the night that they reunited after the final Rose and how she seem to spill out or her emotions and Juan Pablo did not.
She talked about how it’s hard to have a relationship in the public eye and while she felt comfortable with expressing her feelings in public display and he did not, she stated she was fine with that because she knew that going into the relationship with him. And at the end of the day she chose to stand by him whether or not he displayed affection.
She also stated their break up was because of their careers and living in two different states. Even though they tried to make an effort to make the relationship work it did not. It was more of they had different priorities and different lifestyles. Chris asked her that even though they had different priorities was she a priority and Juan Pablo’s life and I could see the discomfort in her face when he was asking her that question.
She went on to say that she knew that she was not the number one priority in his life that place is for his daughter.  They are just different people but aspiring to accomplish different things which I think is bullshit.
I think he wasn’t into her like she thought he was or maybe he just wanted her to be something else that she was not. Chris also asked did she feel that he was in love with her and she said yes that she felt he was at some point but it just was too late to work things out as a couple.
 How she felt about the backlash when Chris pointed out about what the media outlets were saying about her, Nikki says that even though she did sign up for it, nothing  prepared her for the things that people had said about her. If she had seriously watched herself with an open mind, perhaps she wouldn’t have liked herself either.
As for JP, I believe he wasn’t into anyone and he was just playing along with what the producers either may have wanted or he just didn’t want to be another Brad Womack, who eventually chose no one and became the most hated man in Bachelor history.
Nikky did admit that Juan Pablo did tell her that he loved her in private and insisted that he really was a good person despite of what was depicted on national TV.
I don’t know, if it’s reality television how much more unreal can you be?
