When last we left Emily, she had narrowed the field to 25 eligible bachelors - you know the ones to go on her 'journey' with her. And the series has become embroiled in a lawsuit! A man is claiming that he wasn't cast as the Bachelor because he's black. Newsflash dude - it's because you're 39. No one wants to see us old folks date. We'd be asleep by 10 and our hangovers are too rough to booze it up like the kids. But I digress.
I've figured out that there's good things and bad about this season of the Bachelorette. The Good? Well Emily actually asks questions of these dudes. She's not just madly making out with all of them. And Emily is trying to see how they fit into her life - you know of cookie baking and soccer practices. The Bad. She's as dull as paint.
Jesus H. Not even the Muppets could save this girl. She had two solo dates. One with the hot Ryan (they made cookies in her mom clothes and then headed off in the little red dress and sports car) and the other with sweet Joe. Oh Joe. You high-fived her! Kiss of death. Joe and his flowy locks was sent packing. But she saved Jef (no typo - one 'f'). I'm still scratching my head on that. Does dull + dull = something? She had more chemistry with Kermit for godsakes - actually with Miss Piggy too if truth be told.
At the cocktail party, the boys brought their A games. Well if your idea of an A game is waiting for 10 minutes while Emily reads a romantic letter from Ryan, who already had a rose. (I'm talking to you Tony). She kept the token douche - Kalon - (as one guy said 'any guy who carries Louis Vuitton luggage is an a$$hole).
Two guys went home.
One was Aaron the biology teacher (oh AND Nova Scotian!!). Huh? He looks like Ryan Gosling for godsakes. Yes I'm shallow. Shoot me.
And she KEPT Stevie. Not Steve. Stevie. He's a Party MC. Like MC Hammer. That hat stayed on all night.
So maybe we should add 'she has bad taste' to what makes the show BAD this season.
But .... the preview for next week? I can overlook the Muppet/Joe/Tony/Stevie fiasco. There are tears and yelling and cat fighting. Ah men.
