Bachelor Talk Tuesday!

Where do I even begin! Let's see...

First off let's talk about the dates. So this RV trip they have going on... well I give ABC credit for finally coming up with new ideas (the rest of the show is still predictable of course...) but the RV trip is something new. Now I'm not saying it's a good idea, it's a bit odd if you ask me. I guess a trip like that would have to be fitting for the Bachelor for it to work. Like Byron (the pro fisher remember him?) but I certainly can't see all the Bachelors of the past going for this idea. Anyway, the girls seemed to play along with it pretty well. I think Gia was a bit scared out of her mind, but it was a good experience for her, she seemed to embrace something new. Yay for her.

Now the sand date had to be my favorite yet this season. Corrie and Tenly really went with it and showed us a new side of them, I loved it. Perhaps I'm partial because I like the two of them, but I think it was a great date. Very unique, much better than another picnic in a park date. At the end of this date was the evening portion - can you say hello to Ashleigh's coochie? I did! WOWZA. I mean she sat down and her entire thigh was showing, and then by the end we could see right up her dress, geez, she was laying it on really thick and she was getting nothing back from Jake - I kind of felt bad for her, it got to be a bit awkward! Last thing that happened on that date I want to mention is Vienna refusing her talk until she was the last one. Umm, shouldn't you be grateful that Jake wants to talk to you at all? A bit rude if you ask me, but yet again, Jake didn't seem bothered. I know Jake and her at the talk about her behavior around the other girls, but clearly she didn't catch on.

Now I was all for both Kathryn and Ella leaving the show, and the 2-in-1 date was a fine way to do it. Why drag things out if you know they aren't going to work? However, did he really need to get all dramatic and go back for the rose and then throw it in the fire? Can someone tell the producers how cheesy that was please!

At the rose ceremony/cocktail party I just need to mention that I loved Corrie's green dress - I liked how her and Ali are willing to step out of the black dress phase and show a bit of personality - they both pull it off well. I still claim Corrie is the prettiest of them all. Now Jessie's 4 strap dress was not my style, I kept wanting to pull the 2 straps that where "falling down" up onto her shoulder. Perhaps that is the style, but to me it just looked like her dress was coming off.

Once again Vienna brings up the other girls at her one on one time with Jake. Shouldn't it be a big red flag to Jake that all the girls talk about Vienna to him, Jessie did at this ceremony, and try to warn him of her personality and behavior, and then Vienna herself talk to him about how the girls are saying stuff and they don't like her. It seems like he hears it all and it goes in one ear and out the other - did he NOT learn ANYTHING from the whole Wes thing? Really? I thought he was the one who came back to tell Jillian just how much of a douche Wes was and that he had been playing her, umm... can you say VIENNA? Geez, it's really sad he doesn't catch on.

Lastly I do appreciate how he is letting the girls go left and right. It was cheesy again of course, but poor Chris Harrison needs more air time. He let 2 girls go instead of just 1, the shocked look on their faces were great. One thing no one can dispute about Jake is he doesn't waste time. I appreciate that in him, no playing games or leading them on. Kudos to Jake for that....

Yeah. The rose burning fire scene was creepy, right?! Not sure they realized that the way the fire light hit his face made him look like Jack Nicholson in The Shining. I swear I could hear the sinister music playing in the background! Thanks for reading my Bachelor recaps, only true fans can appreciate them!

Great point! I applaud Jake for cutting to the chase already. Some of these girls so clearly needed the boot!

Kudos for Jake's backbone this episode! And...what is the connection to Vienna!? Here from Mama Kat's, I have a recap too! ;)

I agree on all points!! that dress jessie wore was bad. so so bad. she looked like a 2 cent hooker! i have started to like Jake more. He is cutting to the chase. Definitely makes me respect him. They basically recreated our honeymoon. Made me sad! We went to all those places on our drive down the coast. So fun... though the Madonna inn is famous for being cheesy, not classy. LOL. I like Corrie too. She is my dark horse, though I have heard those horrible rumours about Vienna. Ugghh please no!

Hi Kerri with an "I" :)

I agree with what everyone's saying- I applaud Jake for cutting all the "fillers" (as MamaKat and ParentingBYDummies would put it :))

He just needs to get rid of Vienna now but I'm actually enjoying the drama she brings to the show. It just seems like ABC is whispering in Jake's ears to let her stay longer just for ratings b/c I just don't see what he sees in her.

Anywhoo, great blog. I look forward to reading your future posts. :)
