What the Frack?

Ok, last night really threw me for a loop. Mostly because of the rose ceremony, and I know I'm not the only one. But can I say that I'm SO excited for Emily Maynard to be the new Bachelorette!!! She, in my eyes, is basically perfect. Except, I don't get how she hated all the media when she was with Brad, and now she's just asking for more. Thoughts? Either way, I'll be watching every episode.

*"You are the kind of person I could -" (Ben) Is he going to say "see myself with"? "enjoy a relationship with"? "be myself around"?
..." - travel with." :/

*"Did you try working through [your failed marriage]?" Basically, he's asking if she gives up easily.

*I respect Nikki for taking the situation as it is, and not talking about how in love she is already. Way to have your head on straight.

*Blakely! Trying to talk through her frustrations! She is pleasantly surprising me.

*Emily finds out about the baseball diamond, she's all, "Where my real diamonds at??"

*ABC, way to make a potentially fun and bonding game become dirty immediately.

*LOLz at intense 2nd inning music

*Someone needs to talk to Courtney about the difference between needs and wants.

*Blakely's basically saying, "I worked my a$$ off, and....none of you did."

*Holy big tattoo on your wrist Blakely!

*Any girl that threatens Courtney's time with Ben is suddenly on her hit list.

*"I don't need a rose, I just need more time." -Courtney. I wish Ben would give her more time and then no rose.

*I love Kacie's curls!

*"I hate keeping secrets." -Courtney......I won't even start.

*You crazy, Elyse.

*I just cringe at the things she's saying! It's your first date, you are NOT in love!

*"I would like to propose-" -Ben
"Could you stop right there?" -Elyse wishes she had said

*She wants to be loved, but not necessarily by Ben

*"I'm feeling good!" -Courtney. Um, a rejection of another girl is not a personal compliment to you.

*"She must have drank too much." Do you notice Courtney is ALWAYS drinking wine?

*Blakely looks smokin! I'm liking her more and more this episode.

*"You're only in Puerto Rico once." -Court....Weren't you there two months ago?

*"I feel crappy." -Ben. As you should.

*I think Jennifer will be a top 3.

*Blakely talking about herself like this is good because it's not self-centered, it's confident, and that's what Ben goes for. She's staying.

*Ahhh, Emily you were so close!!

*Classy confrontation, Ben. I gained a tiny bit of respect for you.

*Who's the new brunette??

*Also, what does he see in Casey S? They've spent like two seconds together.

*Last rose - I said, "It's Jennifer!" out loud, and suddenly he says, "Emily."
........
........
........
WHAT??!?!?!?!
I was literally speechless.
He seemed to like her so much! And Emily - how did she not ruin it!?? She must have put out on their first date or something. Poor Jennifer! She's fabulous.

*Central America {does not equal} fabulous. There was no better adjective?


Ok, so not my best post, and I should talk less about Courtney, but she's just so entertaining. I also like how the "villians" of the last two seasons sneak up on the Bachelor at his suite. Do they plan these things?

I am SO excited for next week! I hope Ben doesn't turn against Kacie or anything, but I think he trusts her enough to know that she doesn't have any ulterior motives - I mean, she wants to get rid of Courtney but she's not trying to be all sneaky, she's just honest.

I'd say I'd try to lay off Courtney next week, but in light of the apparent drama, it will be hard.

Also? I really hope the bad news Chris has is not a dead parent because I will LOSE IT.

That's all.

Jumping on Board

Well, I read a couple blogs post-Bachelor night, and I decided to jump on board, because I have a lot to say about it, too. So, enjoy!

A couple about last episode ('cause I just watched it), I am SO glad Courtney was all "see ya!" to Shawntel on the way out - because I hope Ben saw a bit of what she's really like. Also, I was hoping he gave Shawntel a rose just so Courtney would leave.

*Yeah Utah! Represent!

*Remember last episode when Courtney was like "No drama tonight!" and then she started it all? Looks like this cocktail party won't be any different.

*I want to take a tally of how many times they say "This is the perfect place to fall in love!"....for the rest of the season

*Stay strong, Kacie B! You've been so perfect so far....

*Chris' advice to use every moment to its fullest is the producers' way of saying "We need to spice things up!"

*Calm down, ladies. Most of you will have ridden a helicopter by the time you go home.

*"Get it started right"....with alcohol. To impair your judgment for the rest of the day.

*"Don't talk about the weather..." -Chris Harrison. This is not going well.

*The "why waste time on something you don't see going somewhere?" line just got you sent home.

*"This fire's hot!"

*What's that, Ben? You're looking to fall in love?! Why do they always state the obvious?

*"You want to be here." That's a good enough reason to get a rose.

*Oh, and he likes kissing her.

*"Is that Ben?" Who else would it be?

*"It's like this is all out of a movie!" Or a TV show...

*Or we could tally how many times they say, "we have a strong connection."

*"Mustard is my favorite condiment." HERE'S the 5 star convo we've been waiting for.

*I'll be honest, I think the last rose ceremony was the first time I saw Samantha. Where did she come from?

*Well, she did ask for honesty.

*He does NOT like her.

*Wow. If she hadn't interrupted him, she'd probably still be there. I do feel bad for her, she was trying to be honest, but she was just a bit too emotional for him. Which, honestly, who isn't in that scenario. Except Courtney. Who only seems to feel competition.

*EVERYBODY rubs you the wrong way, Courtney.

*When he's asking how it's going, he doesn't want to hear it's hard. He knows.

*YES! He loves Kacie B!!!!

*"Hello....Jell-o"

*Keep digging your hole, Courtney

*I guess all you have to do to get a rose is be desperate and whiny. Noted.

*I like Jennifer so far. So we'll see.

*How is ABC letting them do a date in a fenced off, caged area?

*Ah, the ever-present relationship metaphors made literal.

*Yes! In-house hairdressing!

*"She seems really...normal." As opposed to...crazy?

*Why are you going to waste your time talking about another individual?" Did they really say that? Is that what you're doing?

*Jennifer seems really comfortable with him. It's cute.

*"I can't believe he did this all for me - so romantic!" Ummm, he had about 5% to do with it. Thank ABC for the other 95%.

*The blonde next to them can't stop looking at them. "OMG it's the Bachelor!"

*You know you'd be his perfect partner after your first date?

*"....And then she was the girl who got the rose." It's like she was giving him a riddle, but...it wasn't a riddle.

*Now Emily's digging her hole.

*I'm gonna go get a drink....and tell Courtney everything you said.

*Ok. So in Brad's season, it turned out Michelle wasn't really so mean and that a lot of girls actually liked her a LOT. And so I want to give Courtney the benefit of the doubt....and then she's all, "I'm nice!" But, nice people don't say, "Don't f*** with me. Don't cross me." Or laugh in other girls' faces.

*It's snowing?!? Man, I wonder how cold that water was on his date with Jennifer.

*LOL you're not sorry to go back in with all the girls. You love these women.

*Wow, more rose ceremony girls I don't recognize.

*Elyse gives the death glare to Kacie B!

*I've said it before and I'll say it again - Chris Harrison has the best job in the world.

*"It was good getting to know you." Just not good enough.

*Poor Monica. She was crazy in the first part, but she seemed really nice in the end.

*Puerto Rico! "Oh, I was there two months ago." Well then, I guess you don't need to go back now. See ya!

*I will not be surprised if a girl leaves after finding out he skinny dipped with Courtney.
