After a 10 minute break to collect myself and realize I'm going to Hell for not saying a single nice think about Nikki, I'm back. Who's up for casual making out ... now with Ty sleeping in the next room? Bonus!
- Nervous Texas keeps all her roses in a zip lock baggy? I'm not only NOT weirded out by this, but I'm amazed it took this many seasons to see it. Every chick on the show ever has done this, right?
- I'm 14 minutes in and this is all I've got. It's the most boring episode of The Bachelor ever!
- When Nervous Texas asked if she could bring her stretchy pants, I couldn't help but think of this.
- Never before have 4 girls been jealous of a girl who drove herself to a dude's house, did the dishes and then sat on the couch waiting.
- I think Stephanie is wearing a white fur vest hoodie ... for those times when your arms are warm, your chest is cold, and you know you won't be coming in contact with any PETA types.
- A blind kissing test? We've reached new heights in casual kissing for The Bachelor.
- And then he nails the test? As a woman, are you happy or pissed that he knows your kiss and 2 other woman's kisses that well?
- They're openly (and amicably) discussing their jealousies of the other girls? It's weirding me out. Apparently Nikki took all the cat claws with her when she left the show.
- Jillian really says "aboot". I'm having a hard time speculating how I'd feel about being face to face with the #1 go-to Canadian dialect cliche.
- When Jason asks "if we go to your hometown, who would I meet?" ... I mean, you're in, right. He may as well have just given you a rose, no?
- Did Naomi the flight attendant from Carlsbad, CA just pull out "un poquito"?
- I really should have an "amazing" count going with Jason. He's picked up on The Bachelor tradition.
- Wow, Naomi really liked her date. Single-prop planes and rock walls are the key to Naomi's heart. Either that or she's so desperate for a 1-on-1 date that she would have taken a trip to Taco Bell and reruns of Carpoolers.
- This season is suddenly from the twilight zone. Four of the ladies are sitting in the bathroom drinking beer and (again) amicably discussing all of their pros and cons when it comes to landing Jason. I bet the producers are pissed.
- I'm glad that Jill and Jason got scones and lattes prior to just chatting and making out the entire time.
- Seriously, what is with that shirt/tie, Jason? It looks like "Pink Elephants on Parade" ... except more psychadelic.
- Okay, I'll say it. I will happily date Jill, Melissa or Molly if Jason guns them down. Am I wrong or are they all generally the bee's knees? See? This season just turned crazy. I'm talking about how much I LIKE the girls ... 3 of them!
- Seriously, they're cheering each other on DURING the rose ceremony! Up is down. Down is up. This season on The Bachelor: Anarchy Reigns!
- Since I'm bored, have you heard Christian Bale's freak out? And the remix that followed? Masterpieces both, says I.
- Awwwww, sorry, Steph. You got the boot. But hey at least he got your hopes up by saying yours was the best date he went on! Misdirection FTW!
- Okay, even I'll give it up. The chick is amazing ... if only for genuinely saying thank you to the most ridiculous compliment-while-being-dumped ever: "You're the most amazing person I've ever met." Yeah, clearly, Jason.
- Please! Someone at least mention the shirt/tie. It's like the circus puked all over his chest, right?
- It's official, Stephanie the Medical Marketing Manager from Huntsville, AL, you have the best outlook on life ever. You are ... the anti-Nikki.
Wow, next week (and by next week I mean tomorrow) is looking up. Thank you, Naomi's crazy mom and her dead dove that is in need of a wake.
P.S. This is officially the bizarro-season. The outtro just showed two of the girls re-enacting the Lady and the Tramp spaghetti scene. There are no cat claws, the girls cheer each other on, and the girl that got the boot just left with more dignity than she came in with! What is going on!?
