The Bachelor 17 - Sean

The Bachelor Sean Recap Including a Minor Correction to the Spoilers

-Now we get sneek peaks at some of the women through hometown videos. These are always fantastically scripted and heavily producer driven. I mean, do you really think Lesley wanted to stand out in front of the Lincoln Memorial with a “Lesley Sean 2016” poster in her hand? Me neither. It doesn’t get much more scripted than that folks.

Desiree: She’s 26 from Newport Beach, CA and is a bridal stylist. You know, having a bridal stylist on the show, I wonder if they’re gonna make her…BAM! Right on cue. Desiree makes some comment about how she’s always helping other women picking out their dress for the big day, and can’t wait to do hers someday as well. Keep waiting Desiree. Maybe your fake boyfriend that you used to play the prank on Sean will actually be the dude you marry someday. Or not. I think Sean could bench press that guy with one arm.

Tierra: She’s 24, lives in Denver, and does some work that I didn’t care to write down. She tells us she’s fallen in love twice and had her heart broken twice. Boy, after seeing the previews for this season, I’d love to know what these two ex’s of hers are thinking now. Cuck-koo, cuck-koo. And oh yeah, during her video, the producer behind the camera tells her Sean is the bachelor and I think Tierra climaxed. This is not going to be an enjoyable next couple months for Tierra. Judging by her meltdown late in the season, I’m guessing she’s really well equipped to handle the edit she’s about to get. Pray for Tierra.

Robyn: She’s 24, lives in Houston and works in engineering. She also has stick em’s everywhere around her place because she’s learning Spanish? I’m sure Rosetta Stone won’t be offering Robyn any spokeswoman deals anytime soon. Robyn also is an acrobat and can bend many different ways. Must go back to her days as a former Houston Rocket dancer. Good for Robyn. I’m sure that’ll bode well for her in the future. However, Sean isn’t interested in how you bend until after your wedding day, so, you’re gonna need to find someone else. If you combined Condoleezza Rice and Michelle Obama, you’d get Robyn.

Diana: She’s 31, lives in Utah, and owns her own hair salon. For some crazy reason they left out that liiiiiiiiitle nugget about how she is Jef Holm’s hair stylist. Can’t imagine why they wouldn’t bring something like that up. Regardless, she’s also a divorced mother of two and, well, divorced mothers of two don’t last long on this show.

Sarah: She’s 26, lives in LA, and lets us know she was born with one arm. Thank you for that. Had no clue. I almost watched her intro video like I look at the section in US Weekly of “Stars: They’re Just Like Us!” They show Sarah typing, riding a bike, cracking eggs, and walking her dog, etc like we didn’t think someone with one arm would be able to perform these functions. Yes, I understand she has one arm, but I didn’t think that meant she couldn’t do day-to-day chores. I think Sarah automatically has the underdog role built in to her storyline and I can’t imagine many people not liking her. Although, that voice…

Ashley P: She’s 28, lives in Michigan, and works in a salon sexually seducing men apparently. She says she has no idea why she’s single. Ummmm, where should we start Ashley? Although she does say she’s taken by one man, and that’s Christian Grey from the soft porn “50 Shades” novels. Ashley, you’re embarrassing yourself. Just stop now before it gets worse. Oh wait, the producers told you that you’d totally get a rose if you went with the whole 50 Shades schtick on the first night? Rookies…

Lesley: She’s 25, lives in Washington, D.C. and is a democrat. Which basically meant that thinking for a second a southern, conservative, Republican from Texas would ever choose this chick was wishful thinking. Lesley was doomed from the moment they cast her. And not to mention her ridiculous video of prancing around DC with that poster and giving a bunch of political puns about her and Sean. Nauseating. “You can take the girl out of Arkansas, but you can’t take Arkansas out of the girl.” So that means sometime this season she’ll get drunk off moonshine and have a 1-on-1 date in a trailer? Awesome.

Kristy: She’s 25, from Wisconsin, and she’s a model and sells some shake that helps you lose weight, even though the shake comes with ZERO exercise program to go with it. Uh huh. Very credible. I mean, if you’re 100 lbs overweight and you drink this shake every day as your only meal, then yeah, I guess you will lose weight. But it’s certainly not because of the shake. It’s because you aren’t stuffing your face with 3,000 calories a day. Kristy doesn’t take long to get on America’s nerves when she says “Girls will be jealous of me.” Why don’t you just announce to the world that you hate puppies too? Not a good start for Kristy. Also, do we really need to see the over-the-shoulder shot of your trainer simulating sex with you while you’re on your back?

AshLee: She’s 32, from Houston, and she organizes your closet for a living. She’s also adopted and went through 6 foster homes as a child. That sucks. So lets look at the bright side of things and all take a minute to appreciate the fact that with three Ashley’s on the show this season, this one decides to spell her name with a capital “L” smack dab in the middle, and ends it with two “E’s.” You are cool. Jef with one “f” Holm needs a name companion. You two should hook up. Oh wait, you’re about 10 years older than he likes. Sorry. You’ll have to give it up to one of the other bachelor guys that is inevitably FB messaging you or tweeting you right now with a “Welcome to the family” email, which translated means “Come to one of our reunions so I can get in your pants,” or better yet, “Wanna form an early alliance for ‘Bachelor Pad’?” That’s the new one the guys use.

One video they didn’t show was Catherine’s, but it was posted this morning on ABC’s site for “Deleted Scenes.” Here’s her hometown video:

“Sean is the ultimate All-American beefcake, and I’m hungry…love the beef.” Actually you don’t considering you’re a hardcore vegan, so she must be talking about something else that I can’t quite put my finger on. Needless to say, Catherine is enamored with Sean’s looks. Something she seems to reference quite a bit. Hmmmmmmmm…..

    Wow. I was completely surprised that this episode started out with Sean and Juliette eloping. I mean we all saw the previews and I, incorrectly apparently, assumed it would either take a few episodes to get there or they were misdirecting us with the hype, but NOPE, bang they’re hitched. On the other hand, no shock that Scarlett fell right back into bed with Avery, I’m so over her sorry butt. How can one female be so sorry, sad, pitiful? I want to like her but I can’t respect her, she’s just…..backboneless. (Don’t judge, I did make that up, sounded better than spineless).
    I was happy to see Rayna, in the end, didn’t write off the family. Nothing to get a momma’s back up, like someone (her dad in this case) threatening your family. Again, surprised to find out that Teddy did, in fact, know about their daughters’ parentage. I’m loving the twists. No surprise with Avery ditching his band to “get his time in the limelight”, I hope they continue to keep a story line for his band. I’m a little confused where Scarlett and Gunner are headed, I want better for Gunner, guess we’ll see where they take them. Another non shocker, was the ending. Ok I was surprised it happened so quickly, within the same episode, but “poof” Juliette changes her mind and runs from the actual ceremony and the previews show her asking Sean to sign divorce papers. Can we all agree, we’d like to see them keep Sean around?

    I just came across this article and LMAO. Wouldn’t you know Emily found another way to keep herself in the spotlight. Wasn’t her 15 min. up a long time ago??!!

    Sean Lowe may have taken over as center of attention on the new season of The Bachelor, but Emily Maynard’s feedback is still deemed of utmost significance. After all, this is the guy Emily decided to reject during her time as the Bachelorette. Fashion lover to the end, Emily shares her thoughts on the best and worst dresses of this season’s premiere.

  3. randais

    GAH can we NEVER get rid of her? “Utmost significance”? Really? Does she write this stuff for herself? YES her 15 minutes were over about 2 years ago.
    @karyn – where’d you read that?

    @Randais: I almost fell off the couch when I saw that it was him that bought the firms debt. LOL. The look on Alicia’s face was priceless! lol. I love love love that they cast Michael J Fox in that part and that even with his illness he is still willing, and able, to work. I also love the character he plays.

    @Randais, I’m with you, I didn’t think they would start the episode with Juliette and Sean eloping either. I found the rest of the episode fairly predictable, and I think we all knew she wasn’t going to go through with the wedding. I’m glad Rayna did the right thing by not yanking her kids out of school to go on tour. Will be interesting to see how that distance affects their marriage, good or bad. I’m sure at some point her tour and Deacon’s tour will somehow cross paths. And yep, I wasn’t surprised either that Scarlett ended up back in bed (ummm or couch in this case?) with Avery. She continues to bug the hell out of me though, and if Revenge and Nashville ever had some weird crossover episode, I wouldn’t be upset at all if Scarlett’s character got killed off by Fauxmanda or The Initiative. 🙂

    Next week’s episode looks good!

    @iheart – I hadn’t considered, the “tours crossing paths” angle. I think you may be on to something. I also, find your “crossover between Revenge and Nashville” idea hilarious, in a “story line, not reality” sort of way ;). I’m starting to think Juliette needs help though, she definitely has Diva personality disorder, DPD.

    @iam – I KNOW! I love when a story line takes an unexpected twist/turn and that was sure an UNexpected one! Perfectly, scripted at the very end of the episode when no one would be expecting anything along that line. Michael J. Fox is excellent in this role and I think he brings a lot to the show. I also, like that they’ve introduced his wife, I like her character too but have to wonder how “innocent” she actually is with regard to his “business/actions”…..I’m looking forward to finding out.
    I’d be willing to bet, based on his inconsistent appearances, that the show is working around his illness and kudo’s to them for being that flexible.

    Forgot to say “Hi” to Liz123 in my last post. Welcome back!!

    @Karyn, I’m not surprised Emily’s keeping herself in the spotlight one bit. Honestly I’ve stopped reading things with her name in it. Wetpaint seems to love her as they’re always covering what she’s doing. So annoying.

    @Randais, hey what can I say, I’m just really annoyed by Scarlett and wish she would somehow get written off the show. Maybe her band will make it big and they’ll get to travel and the white haired man will mess with her plane- problem solved! lol

    They did a great job casting people for that show. Hayden Panettiere plays the diva character well, Connie Britton is genius, and I think Powers Booth does a great job with his role as well. He plays the powerful, rich mean guy role well, just as he did as the evil President Daniels in 24. I miss that show so much.

    *The Good Wife*
    @Randais, that’s the same thing I said. I think it’s great that they work around his schedule and he is able to work inspite of his illness. I think it says a lot about that network and the producers.

    I really like that his wife is now involved also and I wonder what kind of drama she is going to bring. =) Going to be interesting to watch. lol.

    Last Resort tonight, for anyone who’s still watching.

    I never did get around to watching any episodes of Last Resort However, I’m super excited for the return of Scandal tonight. There’s a new Grey’s tonight too, but that show is declining in my opinion. This may be my last season if it doesn’t get better.

    January 10, 2013 at 7:28 PM

    @iheart- did i see white haired man? in a nashville post? haha.. i agree with u about grey’s.. i used to be a HUGE fan.. but it just got so old and repetitive, and it lost my interest.. sure there were good episodes still, but i think they have dragged that show on for far too long now.. it almost devalues the show.. and thats what i DONT want to see happen with revenge.. i want revenge to end on a high note so the integrity of the show isnt lost..

  14. iheartvino

    January 11, 2013 at 9:44 AM

    @kasey, you definitely wouldn’t like it now then, because they have a whole new group of intern newbies and are trying to make them bigger characters. The only episodes I like are the ones that still focus on Mer, Derek, Christina, Bailey, etc..

    And yep! I was just thinking of how it would be if Nashville and Revenge ever had a crossover episode, there’s a character on Nashville that is extremely annoying and I was thinking the WHM would be the perfect person to somehow kill her off. lol (Not that the two shows would EVER collide- can you imagine the Hamptons clan in a country honky tonk bar? ha)

    @randais, I found the Emily article somewhere on the sirlinksalot website. It’s .net, not .com. This is the site where I found RS years ago, but he no longer lists his site on it.

    I finally watched The Bach last night. Sean’s not as bland as I remember. And I thought the cheesy interaction between Sean and Arie was adorable. I just don’t find Sean that attractive except for his magnificent body, but I’m not big on blondes. Somehow I ended up married to one, but got rid of him (legally) a long time ago!

    I agree with a lot of the first impressions of most of the women. Ms. Shades of Trashed/Trash was really trashy. Sean handled himself well with the women and showed more personality than I remember. He seems like a genuinely nice guy with good morals and values. I didn’t think I’d get into as much this season, but hooked again.

    The Soup
    Does anyone watch this show? Joel McHale had a hysterical end of the year show, and he had a bunch of 2012 reality show contestants singing We Ruined the World to the tune of We are the World. It was hysterical. I remember seeing Kalon, Charlie O’Connell and a few others from the Bachelor franchise.
    Here it is….enjoy!

    Clarification……they are obviously not all 2012 contestants.

    This is probably old news, but I just wanted to thank you for making your site mobile-friendly, previously it was almost unusable, limiting me to reading only when I was in front of my computer. Now it works great with my Android phone. Muchas gracias.

    @iam – thought I’d keep this comment here since it is about The Good Wife, and you were the only one conversating with me about it :D.

    **Good Wife**
    I like the Elsbeth character so I enjoyed this episode. Elsbeth’s intelligent insanity keeps me guessing.

    I loved Will’s face when the three judges strolled in and started the proceedings all in French. I also, loved the judges faces when Will turned the tables by bringing in Diane who surprised all of the foreign judges by understanding everything they were saying and called them out… French.

    I did find it a bit contradictory, just from my perspective, that a girl who is struggling so badly with herself about having an abortion, had no problem telling her lawyers to lie so she would win. Just me, I guess, but both seem equally moral struggles.

    “When the law’s an ass, someone has to kick it” my favorite line of the whole show.

    Side note on Kacie’s dress … Erica Rose also wore a hot pink version on last season’s Bachelor Pad … way to recycle, Kacie!!
