Jillian Harris Blogs The Bachelorette: Episode 6

Hello Croatia! I’m definitely making a mental note to visit ASAP. Right off the bat, Emily hands Travis a date card and they stroll around the picturesque city of Dubrovnik.  Travis has been in the shadows for me this whole season, so I had no idea how this date would turn out, and sadly, it didn’t turn out very well for him and he was sent home. But hey, the girl knows what she likes and I can appreciate that! Was it because he failed to take his shirt off on the balancing stone? Haha. In all seriousness though, it was sad to watch Travis go home. He wore his heart on his sleeve throughout the date but he couldn’t get beyond the “friend zone.”

The group date to watch the movie Brave was cute. I like how Emily really came across as a strong, independent woman because those are traits that I admire in anyone. For this date the guys donned skirts—yet again!—to compete in some ancient games. I guess skirts are the new hot tub? Poor Chris struggled big time but his bravery came through in the end when he challenged Doug, the biggest guy in the group, and earned himself a rose. Go Chris! We also got to see a different side of Jef when he confessed he was crazy about Emily, and now I’m starting to see more of a connection between them.

Now on to Ryan…I’ve had a bad feeling about this guy from day one and now I know why. After he and Emily left for their solo date, the other guys talked about how much they dislike Ryan. The date got off to a fun start as they hit the water to catch some oysters, but when they got some alone time to chat, Ryan decided to throw out the whole “trophy wife” slang. Seriously? Hello! What century are you living in? See ya around, Ryan. Emily made a good call in this situation, although for a second there I thought she was going to change her mind and hand him the rose. I’m glad she stuck to her instincts and sent him off. Then Arie proved to Emily that he has her back when he snuck out to see her and for that, he got a rose and a kiss, again! I like a man that can defend his girl.

Before the rose ceremony Emily and John had a chat and I started to see John’s soft side coming through, but I was still left wondering if he’s the kind of passionate guy that will make it all the way. Emily gave Doug some pointers, encouraging him to pursue her more and to be more confident. And to my (and I’m sure everyone else’s) surprise, she didn’t send anyone home at the rose ceremony. Who do you think should have been sent home at the rose ceremony this week?

Next week, Emily learns some unsettling news about Arie and a previous relationship with a producer on the show. Is that going to be a game changer for Arie?  I’m on pins and needles! Finally, some drama.

Until next time,
