Last night’s episode really didn’t have much in terms of new content, but here were my thoughts on the hour:
-Why was the guy who voices the Salon Hair Confidential commercials the one narrating the show last night? And why was Chris Harrison so bent out of shape about it considering the number of retweets he did expressing his displeasure? Weird.
-When the show first started, I seriously thought they were gonna show us every limo entrance again? They didn’t, but of course they made sure they showed the full limo entrances for her top 4, along with a couple others. That didn’t go unnoticed.
-Does Chris Bukowski still get embarrassed every time he shows up on TV looking like a horses ass, or has it just become second nature to him at this point it just rolls off his back? That scene was even stupider the second time around.
-Maybe I wasn’t paying attention the first time around, but did Andi really make snow angels in the sand on her beach date with Eric? In her bikini? Nice camerawork there, buddy.
-Nick obviously didn’t just take it upon himself to go see Andi after her tearful goodbye with Eric. He was told to by producers. So everything we saw last night was just a storyline since they needed some fall out of Eric leaving. At the time of course no one knew what would happen, so in the moment, they had to capitalize on a dramatic exit. Nick was their guinea pig.
-Tasos, Cody, Andrew, and Josh all voicing their displeasure over it really didn’t make a whole lot of sense. The fact is Nick rubbed some of the guys in the house the wrong way, so naturally, that is why producers chose him to go comfort her since they knew it wouldn’t go over well with others. All part of the storytelling in the show. They take the person who they know others have issues with and the put them right in the center of the drama. There’s a reason JJ, or Tasos, or Patrick, or Marquel didn’t go comfort Andi – because that wouldn’t have brought any drama.
-Nick didn’t do anything wrong by going to talk to her, and judging by the video from the plane, I don’t think he understood at all how producer manipulation works on this show. In his mind, he was doing the right thing. In producers mind, it furthered their storyline. Nick was naïve to the whole process.
-Andi sure was complimentary of Tasos as she was kicking him to the curb, wasn’t she? Geez. I wish every break up ended with the girl who just dumped me showering me compliments to soften the blow. “You’re the greatest guy ever, no issues with you at all, you’re kind, you’re sweet, you’re going to make someone soooooo happy someday…but…not me. Bye.” Nice one.
-Tasos on the other hand was either trying to be complimentary back, or he put on one hell of an acting job saying that his four episodes on a reality show has been one of the best parts of his life. Whoa, slow down there T-sizzle. Lets tap the brakes a little on the hyperbole.
-They once again showed Andrew & Marquel going at each other in previews for next week, so it looks like they will address what Andrew said, which was something to the effect that Marquel was still on the show because he was black. I’m sure that goes over about as well a turd in a punch bowl.
-I’m pretty sure next week’s cocktail party is cancelled because Andi had already made up her mind on who she was sending home: Patrick, Andrew, and Marquel. Which should come as a surprise to exactly zero people. Not because of the spoilers, but because none of them had gotten a 1-on-1 yet, and outside of Marquel, we hadn’t seen Andrew or Patrick really have any alone time with her.
-This show isn’t all that hard to figure out. The people they show spending time with the lead and getting the most camera time are either:
1) People that last long in the show, or,
2) People that are involved in the “drama” storyline
You know why Patrick and Andrew have rarely been shown having alone time with Andi? Because they’re irrelevant to the season. Those two are only relevant to each other. I wonder if they watch the show together every Monday night in the spooning position?
