The Bachelor 1/27, Episode 4: Juangnum Style

Before diving into Monday’s night episode of The Bachelor I would like to briefly touch on Sean and Catherine’s wedding.

  • Grown Sexy?
  • Lots of super awkward talk about consummating their marriage.
  • Not enough celebrity interviews.
  • Not enough interviews with past contestants.
  • No one cares about Ryan and Trista anymore.  STOP TALKING TO THEM.
  • Andi Dick?

NOW IT MAKES SENSE……

seanAndi

The Bachelor wedding was worse than watching an episode of Dancing with the Stars, if that is even humanly possible.

I will never subject myself to another Bachelor wedding, sorry Chris Harrison.

_________________________________________________________________________

Enough of Sean and Catherine, lets get to this weeks episode of The Bachelor.  The episode started out with Juan “homophobe” Pablo picking his daughters wedgie before heading out to jump on a plane to meet the women in Seoul, South Korea.  How romantic.

After flying halfway around the world, the first group date is more dancing, are you shocked?  The girls get to perform with the group 2NE1 on stage at a MALL….  Don’t worry the Mall is big enough to hold all 200 fans.

Kat, the washed up dancer, is in her element and tries to outshine the girls by doing some of this.

And some of this…

Nikki is less than impressed by Kat’s dance moves.

And then this happened..

HeyGoTeam

After the group date, Sharleen had her one-on-one.  She sang opera, don’t care.  They made out, don’t care.  She got a rose, don’t care.

The next group date started off at a Korean Karaoke lounge where the girls danced AGAIN while trying to sing along to Korean pop music.

Groupdatedance2

After dancing their hearts out and stopping at the fish foot spa they toured around Seoul.  The girls were getting annoyed at how much Clare dominated the group date.  She hung all over Juan Pablo and made sure that she stuck out in the group.  She made a huge deal out of eating a piece of squid.  SQUID.  Has she never had or heard of calamari? Of course Juan Pablo makes the all of the girls try squid and Clare makes a huge deal out of eating a small piece.  This is when dog lover Kelly stepped in to say “Clare is the most dramatic person I have ever seen. Her piece was literally this big and I know you have swallowed bigger things than that”.

KellySwallow

I have to say the only entertainment on the show right now is Kelly.  I am so glad she wasn’t voted off this week.

At the rose ceremony Elise and Lauren (after being shut down when asking for a kiss) were voted out of Korea.  Next stop Vietnam!!!

Until then rose lovers….  Enjoy your weekend!!!!!!!!

She is very independent and will get down and dirty with a hatchet?!?!?! She said that she is not going to flirt her way thru the game but my guess is after she meets good ole Jeremiah, she will be singing a different tune.

Actress in Shooter Jennings’ The Other Life (Minute 1:28)

Miss Teen USA Q&A:

Q: What is the craziest thing you have ever done? A: I had the opportunity to go 178 miles per hour on dirt. I was able to ride with my brother, as he sped around the high banks of a dirt oval race-track behind the wheel of his late model dirt race car to take the checkered flag. What a thrill.

Q: What is unique about you (something no other contestant can say about themselves)? A: I sang at High Mass at the Vatican in Rome as a member of the Bob Westbrooke singers. Also, I had to cut my LONG BLONDE HAIR and dye it red when I was cast for the leading role of Annie and the director would not allow me to wear a wig!

Sarah Lacina

Cop Sarah really pays attention to detail but doesn’t have a way with words. It scares me that she is allowed to carry a gun on a daily basis. She is very competitive and claims she is a physical threat. She has played sports all of her life. Part of her strategy – “Alliance is huge for me, I want to get one person and then I want to assign us both to go out and grab one person and now we have four but we secretly know that it is us two” Wow what a strategy. She is lacking a personality.

Tony is what you think of when you think of a Jersey cop. He either spends a lot of time down at the shore or in a tanning bed. He is street smart and plans to use his cop intuition to help him get further in the game. He doesn’t like germs, doesn’t like bugs, doesn’t like the sun (so he must love the t-bed), he doesn’t like plants, but says that he will deal with the elements. Good luck with that Tony. He believes that someones failure is someone else’s success. He is here for the fortune not the fame. Spoken like a true Jersian

Lindsey

Lindsey is great at reading people, she is good at manipulating and she is impulsive. She is also a slave to her emotions.

emotions

Her strategy is to align with someone who is logical. This is what she says about her family genes – They get really ripped really fast, and are strong looking, she had really ripped abs and ripped biceps before coming on the show but didn’t want to look too intimidating. So she had a few drinks and ate a few cheeseburgers. She didn’t want to come off too dominating, so she ate an entire pizza. She is here for the adventure, the money is a plus.

Three Essentials: A picture of my loved ones, A dollar bill (maybe she was a stripper in her past life), and a shot of Jack

The Bachelor Season 18, Episode 3

Before we dive into this weeks episode of The Bachelor, I forgot to comment on the M&M commercial that might have been overlooked by the majority of viewers that own a DVR.  Not that there is really anything to note, other than the bad acting, but I wanted to point it out anyway.

Monday night on the bachelor I was both shocked and saddened to see Lucy, the free spirit, go home. She was great for the show and I am sad that she will not be making anymore naked appearances on season 18. Lucy recently made Buzzfeeds “36 White People that Need to be Stopped” article, coming in at #23.  If you have time to read this article in full, do it.

Let’s rewind to the beginning of the show.  Chris Harrison delivered the first date card wearing what might have been my least favorite shirt that he has ever worn on the show.  I hope this is not part of his clothing line.  While I was researching Chris Harrison’s ugly shirt, I stumbled upon Cocky Chris Harrison’s twitter page.  This page only has a few thousand followers but has major potential.

Ok, back to the show, Cassandra got the first one-on-one date.  They drove a car boat (don’t care) and danced awkwardly back at his pad.  She got a rose.  This date and the two participants bored me enough I thought about 2 screening it.

Next up was the group date!!  I got really excited thinking we could have a repeat of last weeks pure destruction.

Not drunk at all

Unfortunately, we were hugely disappointed when all they did was “play” soccer and make out.

Boom!

After being hit in the face by Juan Pablo’s ball, Sharleen and The Bachelor share a cringe worthy kiss while getting some alone time in the middle of the soccer field. When she is not being dominated on the field Sharleen enjoys singing opera, blowing bubbles and role playing.

SharleenNikki, who seems to be the most normal, walked away with the rose on the group date.

Chelsie got the next one-on-one date, sorry about your bad luck Elise.  I don’t think ABC had enough footage of this date because they showed this scene for way too long.

stop please stop

After “loosening” up in the car, Juan Pablo spent the next hour trying to convince Chelsie to bungie jump off of a bridge.  Mind you, there was nothing but concrete staring them in the face.  He finally convinced her and they shared their first makeout hanging upside down.  Per usual, the date ended with a private concert with an unknown artist..  Chelsie got  a rose.

The next day, Juan Pablo, decided to sneak into the ladies mansion before they were awake and make them breakfast.  Kelly, the dog lover, was not pleased when she spotted the bachelor in the kitchen.  If you are uncomfortable with your wakeup face why in the world would you go downstairs and put yourself in front of 20 cameras.  Deal with it Kelly the dog lover.

WARNING, NO MAKEUP

After breakfast the ladies had a pool party instead of a cocktail party.  Good idea?  Bad idea?  I think some of the girls have different opinions on this.

Kat

Kelly Not Pleased

At the rose ceremony Lucy (insert sad face) and Christy got the boot.  You may be asking yourself “who the heck is Christy?”.  Don’t worry, they rest of America is asking the same thing.

She was on the show?

And that ends this weeks recap.  Please go to the following link to download the scorecard for episode 3 ~ The-Bachelor_Scorecard_1-20.

Sean and Catherine will be married Sunday night, live on ABC!!  Don’t forget to tune in.

Until next week, stay warm friends!!!!!!!

The Bachelor Season 18, Episode 2

Warning:  If you are going to watch the video links at work, please use your headphones.

Monday nights Bachelor brought new meaning to straddling, humping and the hymen.

Let’s skip right to minute 1:03 when Nikki politely told Victoria to chill out on the drinking for a little bit.  Thank the bachelor gods that Victoria did not take Nikki’s advice and continued to get straight up annihilated.

 

Favorite Quotes:

Check out what Victoria is up to or should I say not up to HERE.  Victoria scored Kristi 52 points this week with all of her crying, bikini wearing and getting kicked off the show not at a rose ceremony.

Now lets talk about the other free spirited crazy, Lucy.  Lucy loves being nude. Here are some other things you might want to know about her:

These 2 crazies overshadowed both Clare and Kats one-on-one dates, sorry gals.  Although, I wouldn’t mind doing THIS next year, who is in?  Cleveland, June 20th!!!  Yea, buddy.

I am looking forward to seeing who is here for the right reasons.  Never forget.
