Bachelorette, as much as I don't want to committ, I always do.... EMily needs love... I want to watch her maybe find it.. Here is my summary from tonight
The first date card arrives:
"Ryan, Be my King in the Queen City - Emily"
I do like Ryan, he is good looking and seems sweet.
Their first date is baking cookies at her house. Interesting. I do like the idea of having REAL LIFE dates, maybe Emily really will find REAL love?
Back at the house the men are discussing when someone will meet Ricky, her daughter. THey all agree it wouldn't be until near the end.
True to that, Emily drops off snacks and leaves Ryan in the car. She jokes the next part of their date is Chuck E Cheese. ha! Luckily they go on a real date.
There is a huge crowd outside their restaurant and they have a good dinner with some tough questions. Emily says in private that he reminds her of Brad, good looking, too perfect. In the end she gives him the rose. I think he has potential.
Group Date Card Arrives:
"let's set the stage for love"
What a huge group! Most of the men are not overly thrilled with the idea of performing, but it is for charity and the Muppets are there, so it is fun. Charlie is having anxiety of doing stand up comedy and confronts Emily about his speech problems and insecurities surrounding his disabilities. Emily was completely understanding and he offered to dance or do something different.
The show was hilarious. YouTube it if you missed it. The men dancing, Miss Piggy stealing the spotlight, comedy and more. The first group of men danced ROUND Emily. THe next group did some very bad comedy with Fozzy Bear. Miss Pigy did a "Chelsea Lately" style interview with some of the men. Charlie was one of them. He was nervous! Aaron had to make up a poem, Jef had to propose on the spot to Miss Piggy, and poor Charlie was sweating bullets and Miss Piggy asked what he would do to impress a girl. He handled it well and was very honest and sweet. PHEW!
Emily and Kermie the frog flirted and then Miss Piggy interupted ha ha! Ricky came up on stage with her momma and helped wrap up the show.
In the end it was all about Charity and they raised a lot of money for a good cause. $20k - impressive!
After they go to dinner.
Emily tells Chris he is extremely good looking but not a "look at me" kind of guy.
Emily tells Jef that she had a hard time finding him today and has a hard time reading him and getting his attention.
Emily dances with one of the men, Stevie maybe, though his hat was off.
Charlie spies them and goes back to tell the men who all go to watch and make fun of the dancing pair. Kallon finds it immature to spy and criticizes the men. He then goes to interupt the dancing pair and chat with Emily. Almost immediately Aaron comes in and Kallon asks for 2minutes, Aaron refuses and Emily feels uncomfy so Kalon takes the high road and says "enjoy your conversation he is a good guy"
Kalon returns and reports what happened, then Stevie says he wanted 5 more minutes and Kalon interupted (aka "karma is a bitch") and they argue.
Emily returns and gives the rose to Jef, much to Chris' shock.
Back at the house a date card arrives:
"Joe, come close to my heart, Emily"
The hair bugs me with Joe... and there are other awesome guys who I would have prefered see spend one on one time with Emily.
Joe and Emily take a small plane (and without any monologue on how hard it is to fly after losing her ex) to West Virginia, her home town. They stay at Green Briar resort where Emily went as a child. THey have a nice date, but I findhim boring and awkward. He answered her questions with questions, I just didn't feel it, I thought Emily was feeling it, she was in tears, but it was because she wasn't letting him stay. Good choice.
Back at the house Kalon tells whats his name (dad) that he put being a dad on hold for this show, which could be interpreted as Emily putting being a mom on hold when she was the show with Brad. Needless to say, it doesn't go over well with most of the men and causes more tension between Kalon and the house.
Emily addresses the group and then the one-on-one brief convo's begin... Arie and Emily talk a lot about his hometown and what they like to do in their spare time.
Next up Ryan is alone with Emily, the men are upset because he has a rose and doesn't need time with her tonight. Tony comes in to interupt and witnesses Ryan giving her a gift...a letter... a novel.. she reads it outloud as Tony stands there... waiting... awkward!
Tony gets his time, talks about his 5 year old son and they seem to really connect as single parents.
-Ryan & Jef have roses already
-Kalon - drama to come I am sure
-Arie - still intriguing
-Michael - still don't dig the long hair but in a pony it was kinda sexy
-Nate - still cute
-Sean - not too much from him this episode
-Chris - it wasn't the date rose, but he happily took it
-Doug - the dad I mentioned earlier but couldn't recall his name
-Travis - wasn't on this show much either, is it editing or what?
-Tony - as worries as he was, the convo they had helped
-John "wolf" - Still don't know why he is "wolf" I want to know then send him packing
-Alessandro - he wasn't seen much this episode either
-Charlie - he is adorable
-Alejandro - don't hear much from him
-Stevie - really? I don't see it!
I was glad to see Kyle (also from Long Beach) go, he didn't stand out to me one bit, but I was shocked Aaron went home, he is a bit older, his goofy glasses are a bit hipster, but he is a teacher and damn sexy. I'd date Aaron, he is from Long Island and a biology teacher, hot!
Next week: Arie one on one date? Dolly Parton surprises Emily, CHris gets a one on one and they have to rock climb the side of a building. Sean seems to get some more screen time, Alessandro speaks, someone thinks about leaving and "parenting" is discussed... in other words, as always it will be "the most exciting episode ever" ha ha
At this point I am rooting for: Jef, Ryan, Chris, Arie, Sean, hmmm....
Who are you favourites?
