Kelly waxes poetic about "The Bachelorette"...
First of all...does anyone else think that Brad was on the wrong show?? Kinda think he should have been vying for the affections of "The Bachelor". Just sayin. Bless his heart...hope he finds love someday.
Bryden...I'm not loving his drama. Kinda over it.
I have to admit...I broke down and read the spoilers, so I know what is happening. I think she ends up with a good top two. I'm hooked to watch how these relationships continue to develop. But I have to give another look to Kasey after his stellar pageant win!
Excited for more man drama and tears next week!
Okay...so Ben wasn't the one with the girlfriend, but he's still being a youknowwhat. Unfortunate, because he had the best intro ever and kind of resembles Brad Pitt. So I want to root for him....but his dbag tendencies prevents that.
Brian (never paid attention to him anyway) was the jerk with a girlfriend, who, let's be honest, was a little batsh$t crazy. Good riddance.
Brooks is still growing on me with his broken finger and his charm...
and I've finally figured out who Bryden looks like and why I like him: SPARTACUS! The late, and beautiful, Andy Whitfield...
Still trying not to read the spoilers...until next week!!
So the first one on one went to Brooks??? Strange pick, but he grew on me. Not sure I see him going the distance. The group date...I...uh...have no words. All I can say is my husband accidentally saw the rap video at the end...and banished me to sleep in the basement. We are never to speak of that again. He can't UNSEE it and he's mad. Kidding! But he probably won't be watching with me again anytime soon.
Bryden...cute. Good date...and then the hot tub. I was cringing at the awkwardness! I was screaming at the TV, "JUST KISS HER ALREADY! YOU'RE IN A FRIGGIN HOT TUB FOR CRYINGOUTLOUD!!!" And then thank goodness Dez finally said, "just kiss me already". Whew. I'm kind of rooting for him.
Ben...so, he's not as bad as the promo editing made him out to be...kind of. I was kind of on the fence about whether I think he's sincerely there for her or not. There is the troubling conversation at the cocktail party about how he apparently commented to some guys about how some former Bachelors now own multiple bars after being on the show...and how he owns one now. Kind of points to him being there to boost his profile to help his business ventures. His cheese factor has amped up, too.
Brandon...I was rooting for him, but he does have moments reminiscent of Kasey "I'll Guard Her Heart" Kahl. The other guys even pointed that out.
Here's some highlights...can't wait to find out who's girlfriend crashed the pad (Ben??) next week!!
We're baaaaaaccckkk ladies! I have to be honest...I am not wild about Dez. I'm not necessarily watching this season because I'm invested in her finding her soulmate. I am, however, intrigued by the drama queens she has to choose from!! Hands down, I would have given the first impression rose to Ben as well. Kudos to her...he knocked it out of the park! His son...cutest ever! Well played, sir. Fantasy Suite dude? You could have also had a cute entrance...had you gone the way of "foregoing the other bachelors to go have coffee with me and start our first date and life together." Instead, you went sleezy and straight to fantasy suite. She didn't like it...neither did I. You got the boot before the rose ceremony. So far, I'm forgiving Dez for all the cheesetastic talk of "fairy tales", "prince charming" and chasing seagulls on the beach.
My picks at this point...
Ben. Single Dad...seemingly has the right intentions and priorities straight by introducing his adorable son without exploiting him. WARNING! The season preview at the end last night seemed to paint him as the bad guy!!! Is the kid an actor he hired?? Was grandma a fake?? Hope not...but I did notice in the comments about his bio that someone has known him and his family for a long time and picked him to win.
Brandon. Seems like a nice guy...cute.
Bryden. It bothers me I can't figure out who he reminds me off...and I don't think he's the cutest, but I like that he's a vet and is sweet. Remains to be seen if there is any chemistry.
Dan. He's not really one of my picks...he just looks like Jeff Probst. So there's that.
Juan Pablo. Sexy soccer player. She's smitten...we'll see if he's got staying power.
Ok...talk to you next week!!!
