Well, I said it before and I really stand by it now—this season of The Bachelorette is going to be much different and it certainly is. Emily has such a HUGE invested interest in this journey, and I really do believe that is true for her more than it was for any other woman that’s been the bachelorette. That being said, I do think it’s also the reason that this season is off to a slow start.
At the risk of making myself look, well, less classy, my season was more about fun, goofing around, more cocktails and less pressure. All I had to look for was a connection, and I don’t envy all of the extra details Emily has to cover. But maybe that’s going to be the key for her to find a successful relationship in the end.
For several seasons now people have complained that they won’t watch next season of the show because there’s too much drama and not enough of the “love connection.” Well, I think you guys are getting it this time around, so I don’t want to hear any peeps if you’re finding it boring. There’s a reason Jersey Shore is successful!
At the beginning of this season I felt like there were just a bunch of boys on the roster; no one who seemed quite ready for our Emily. But after the second episode I see a little light. I was also a little envious—Emily got the chance to have a big part of her life involved in this process. I think that makes for a very levelheaded bachelorette. Filming in her hometown, having her friends and her daughter helping her along, and getting to hang in her home are all things that will lend to some good decisions with the boys. Otherwise, it’s like vacation love, and we’ve all been there before! #fail
Here are my favorites so far: Arie, Charlie (so adorable) and the biology teacher, Aaron. My least favorite thing? Emily’s wardrobe! I hate to say it because I love her style, but so far I haven’t been a huge fan of her dresses. She really is so beautiful in her regular everyday clothes.
And as for Joe—the hockey hair, plaid shirt, natural laugh and the fact that he’s so well articulated? He’s my kind of guy!
Until next week,
