So, the biggest difference between The Bachelor and the Bachelorette? THE CRYING. Hoo boy, there’s the crying. Because on both shows there are the crazies and the jealousy and the OMG I just realized that he/she is kissing OTHER peoples (Really? You just realized? You know what this show is about, right? I mean…how many seasons have there been of this? YOU SIGNED UP FOR THIS.)
But tears. I cannot handle them.
Wait..I guess here’s something new! And I thought getting tattoos were bad…now we have bachelorettes GIVING THEMSELVES BLACK EYES TO GET ATTENTION. What? How on earth? In the midst of all of her waking up with heartburn and/or not sleeping, girl is punching herself in the face. And, you know, because she’s all wounded she obviously deserves a one-on-one date. Obviously. I really, really hope that Michelle is a producer plant because how is this kind of crazy still on my tv screen? I mean…it’s, like, PAINFUL to watch.
So Brad has a date with Chantal who is afraid of the water. So, guess where their date is? If you guessed “in the water” you’d be right.
and then Brad has a date with Michelle (PSYCHO) who is afraid of heights. So, guess where their date is? You guessed it – rappelling down a building!
The theme of this show seems to be…let’s see how much we can psychologically damage these girls before they run for the hills, ala FangGirl.
I mean, have you seen the previews for next week’s group date where they make EMILY go to a racetrack? You know Emily, right? She’s the one who gets special surprise picnics before the rose ceremonies because she’s going to be in the final 2 and Brad pretty much is in love with her already and almost everyone else can just go home.
On the group date, Ashley – who I kinda, sorta liked – turns on an extra special kind of crazy and even though Brad assured her that she wasn’t going anywhere and he was going to give her a rose to make sure she knew and could stop being a psychopath, she got all weird and sort of obnoxious so Brad gave the rose to someone else. Good thinking, there, Ashley. Maybe she should have punched herself in the face. A black eye may have worked better for her here.
And then Brad sends three girls home who I have never seen before.
I can’t wait for some more tears next week.
