Wow, what a night full of drama! Drama is one of the reasons I watch this show. Watching other women claw at each other reminds me of how drama-free my life really is.
Without any further ado, here are my random thoughts:
First one-on-one date with Ashley the dentist to the circus.
I was just waiting for that dress to fly up in her face. Surprisingly, I don't think it ever moved.
Ashley makes the comment that this was the best date she's ever been on...well, duh! Every Bachelor date is something out of a fairy tale...too bad you have to go back to real world dating after the show is over.
All in all, I really like Ashley. And, Brad does too.
Brad is such a cutie. I think I'm crushing on him a little bit. He's so hunky.
Of course, Brad gives Ashley a rose.
First Group Date with 15 women = DRAMA
Oh. My. Goodness. Michelle. is. Annoying.
By the way, in case you missed the 50 trillion times she mentioned it, the day of the group date was her 30th birthday and it's just not fair that she had to share it with 14 other women.
The group date was spent doing some public service announcements for the American Red Cross. I was a little worried if these announcements were really going to air on t.v. because I wanted to make sure to shield my child's eyes. Wow.
Poor Keltie, she never had a chance
Michelle, seriously, SHUT UP
Wow, goody-two-shoes Britt, just Wow
The public service announcement they ended up showing was actually pretty funny. I wish I could find a video of it, but alas, there's not a copy to be found. That's pretty funny since these public service announcements are supposed to be airing in January. It is January, right?
After filming, Brad and the girls go to an after party on some roof. This is when we first see the serious drama between Melissa and Raichel. They really could get somewhere in their arguing if they didn't use the word "like" so often...
Annoying Michelle gets the rose....sheesh
Next one-on-one date with Jackie
To continue with the fairytale dating theme, Jackie gets the whole "Pretty Woman" experience including a facial, a room full of beautiful dresses, and a personal stylist. Jackie tells Brad that he's spoiling her.
It's not just him, honey, it's the show. Pimp Daddy Chris Harrison deserves some credit too.
Jackie and Brad go to some well-known music venue where they have dinner and then get a private concert from the band, Train (a great band).
I'm not sure about Jackie. I don't know if she's just very cautious. If that's the case, why in the world would she come on a t.v. show with 30 other women fighting for the same guy? Jackie receives a rose from Brad, so all is well at the moment.
Michelle is nutso. She pulls Brad away from the girls to ask if he prefers Starbucks or The Coffee Bean. She also asks him what he always has stocked in his fridge.
I think it's absolutely adorable how Brad gets tongue tied around Emily. I think she's just adorable. There's definitely a connection between them.
The night wouldn't be complete without some more drama. Thank you Raichel and Melissa for entertaining us. You were entertaining in an annoying kind of way.
Ali and Roberto show up! I just love Ali and her laugh. She and Roberto are such a cute couple. I wish we could have heard their opinions on each lady.
Emily gets a rose!! Yes!!
At the rose ceremony, Brad sends Keltie (poor girl), Melissa, and Raichel home. Good for him. I was kind of worried he was going to send Britt home. After the American Red Cross scene, I was pretty sure he would keep her around for a while!
I really like Emily and Ashley the dentist. It is so hard not to go to Reality Steve's website to see who the final two are. I've got to be strong...
That's all I have for tonight. Stay tuned next week to hear the random thoughts from a "Bachelor" junkie.
