Hello Everyone! Happy Friday!
Well party people...looks like we have another group of crazies on everyone's guilty pleasure and favourite water cooler topic of discussion....the latest installment of The Bachelor! I think we all agree that Jake is serious eye candy, but not exactly the perfect specimen he thinks he is. Let's call a spade a spade...he's a bit of a dork and uses words like 'gosh' and 'golly' way too much...I have yet to hear ABC bleep out anything he said. Come on Jake...it's reality tv. Let the bleeps fall where they may...;) Having said that, we knew that once Kiptyn and Reid bailed on being the Bachelor, Jake was the natural choice to be selected to be on "the most dramatic season ever!" That phrase always make me giggle...
I am the first person to admit that this show is crazy and pure drama...but like millions of other fans, I love watching the madness unfold every Monday night on ABC! Last week was insane. Everything from Rozlyn throwing herself at Jake on the group date for a rose to Michelle packing her bags and threatening to leave because she didn't get invited on a date and then Elizabeth reading Jake that silly note and telling him he can't kiss her until he knows she is the one for him......to the grand finale of Roz getting thrown out of the house for her 'inappropriate relationship' with a producer. Did anyone see what this guy looked like!? All I have to say to Roz is...honey, either you need glasses or you clearly didn't care who you were involved with to get attention in the house. Wow...hope it was worth it. I wonder how long it will take for Playboy to call her agent...you know she already has one by now!
I was asked to give a quick rundown of the girls that are still in the house (just for you, Erica!!). Here are my comments...feel free to add yours too! I can't wait to hear what people think about the show...
Ali - Ali is so cute and sweet. She is one of my personal favourites. You see the chemistry building already. I think she'll be around for a while.
Elizabeth - The ridiculous letter turned me off...and how stupid is she to tell Jake not to kiss her, then throw her fake boobs in his face and tempt him about whether or not he wants to kiss her?? Girlfriend has GOT to go!!
Vienna - The unemployed daddy's girl in the house. I appreciated her honesty about telling Jake she eloped at a young age, but this girl looks like she wants a sugar daddy. Jake may fall for her though...stranger things have happened.
Gia - I think she is using the show to get Sports Illustrated to call her for an audition...wow. Hot but too much for the Christian boy from Texas, in my opinion. He'll keep her around as I am sure she 'intrigues" him too...the fact that she looks like a Playboy bunny has NOTHING to do with it!! ;)
Tenley - I really like her. She is sweet, honest and Jake is already impressed with her (hence the 'first impression" rose...lol). I think she'll be around for a while. Hope she tells him about the divorce soon. Our boy Jake is all about honesty.
Ella - The single mom. She seems like a nice person, but I don't see them together...we'll see what happens. He seems to like her. I think she looks older than 30...
Valishia - She has left zero impression on me. Pass.
Corrie - Pretty, very young. and blonde...typical bachelorette. She doesn't really stand out for me. I seem to only like talking about the crazies!
Jessie - Our girl from Oakville (go Team Canada!!) She isn't standing out to me very much...unless something 'dramatic' happens soon, I think she will be home in time to attend Vancouver 2010 in person! The line about having the guns registered made my eyes roll into the back of my head!!
Ashleigh H. - Ah, the bikini gets the guy every time! I loved how she interrupted Jake and whoever he was talking to by showing up in a bikini during the cocktail party! Tell me that a guy who is in a room full of women wouldn't want to spend time with a women who has almost nothing on...
Michelle - This girl needs to be committed...and not in a relationship! What a mess. She has psycho stalker written all over her. Shame though..she is attractive, but that creepy factor won't work for very long...and the girls will give Jake the 411 on her boiling pot of craziness anyway!
Kathryn - Cute flight attendant. I'm sure she will try to get into the mile-high club with Jake at some point! She is very pretty and seems nice...but again, typical blonde that we see every season.
I wanted to say that I don't plan on using this blog to say what I hear online (spoilers, etc). I know so many people who want to watch the season and see everything unfold as each episode airs. I just love to chat about the show with my friends and thought this was be a great way for me to post my thoughts and invite others to share their comments sas well. I hope you enjoy reading my posts...and I would love to hear from you too!
Take care and have a fabulous weekend!
