Well guys, the fourth episode was set in Bermuda and I have to say that I’m finally starting to get hooked! I loved hearing Emily be open and candid about what she wants for her future, and to be honest it was a real eye opener for me. Being single and so stubborn the last few years, I haven’t worried too much about starting a family or a new relationship again. But Emily painted a pretty cute picture of what she wants and made it sound really appealing! It also seems like there are some great men in this group of bachelors, and I don’t know if Emily brings it out in them, but during my season the guys were a bit more goofy and young at heart. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my season, but these guys do seem a little more “manly” with the exception of Charlie when he was crying in the car. I love Charlie, but oh my gosh that was a little…wrong!
Doug got the first date and I was so happy that he got a rose. He’s just my style—big arms, tall and nervous in a cute way. I actually liked how he dropped the f-bomb. Plus, he’s a dad, so the date felt really natural and the post card was adorable! The moment where they walked through the Moon Gate reminded me of Ed and I in Sevilla. I think Emily’s main issue with Doug is that he seems too perfect! But I think that on this show, you don’t find out certain things until later on in the relationship.
Arie is hot, but a little immature. He had good insight when it came to Ryan calling Emily a trophy wife. And when he said he missed Emily and kissed her it made my heart pitter patter. I think his ability to communicate and be open is really important. I have mixed feelings about Arie for Emily, but I do see the strongest connection between the two of them.
I thought the sailing competition during the group date was intense but I loved the idea of it. I mean this was a date that takes a real man; it’s high pressure, a little dangerous and frankly, hot. But I have to say I’m not a big fan of Chris. I’m not sure why exactly, there’s just something a bit stiff about him. But I don’t have too much to base that off of.
I wasn’t crazy about the two-on-one date. In my opinion, neither of them will make it to the end anyway. I think a two-on-one date is the kiss of death for both guys involved, so I didn’t really pay too much attention. But I know a few things are certain—it was awkward, uncomfortable and weird. And I can almost bet you right now that neither one of them will win, even though John got the rose. He’s safe for now, but moving on….
I knew something had been bugging me about Ryan and now I think I’ve figured it out. I bet he suffers from BSD (bar star denial). He’s actually kind of creepy! But he certainly seems to think he’s a good catch. Was he just pitching himself for a future season of The Bachelor? What a tool.
On the flip side, I like Jef. I think he is rad and definitely a catch. I also really love his hipster style but I don’t think he’s Emily’s type. Those socks he wore were intense! Gutsy move, Jef.
It took me a good three-and-a-half episodes but I think I’m hooked onto this season of The Bachelorette now. What about you guys?!
Until next time,
