Some thoughts on the show before we get to the Rozlyn stuff:
-By the far, the funniest part of the episode was the girls take on Tenley. One of the few times I’ve actually had a sincere laugh towards something I’ve seen on the show. Jessie saying Tenley “is the sweetest thing, but seems like she’s dropped straight out of a Disney movie” was hilarious. Then Gia saying Tenley “must sh** rainbows” was even funnier. Yet, who would’ve thought Vienna might’ve delivered the funniest line of the night when she said Tenley “dreams in cartoons”. Good stuff. I got a kick out of that segment.
-The whole “here are our former Bachelor/ettes throwing reunions so they can all hook up” segment was, ummmm, a good thing? Was that supposed to put this show in a better light? Certainly didn’t seem that way to me. I mean, I think I’ve mentioned it numerous times in previous columns how the people on this show, once you become a “part of the family”, it turns into one giant incestuous group. Oh man, the stories I could tell. Regardless, letting the rest of America in on that? Really? Didn’t think it did the show many favors, but hey, maybe it’ll promote the “Bachelor Pad” even more, since basically that’s what the show will be about.
-I loved the “Bachelor Gives Back” stuff. Not because of the actual charity work being (which is definitely a positive thing), but just to see the looks on these kids faces when, all the sudden, former “Bachelor/ette” contestants show up to help give them free stuff. I mean, what down and out 5 or 6 year old wouldn’t be thrilled that John Hardesty from someone’s season 4 years ago is there to lend a hand? Or that the one girl from that one season is there to help her paint something? Awesome. These kids really must’ve been in awe not knowing who the hell any of these people were. “The Bachelor? Huh? Is that on Nickelodeon? Maybe it’s on the Noggin Channel?” I’ve watched every season but the first two and even I had no clue who the hell some of these people were, much less tell you what season they were on. I’m glad something good came out of their experience from being on the show.
-Questions, Questions, Questions…Why does Shayne Lamas looked about 35 years old now? Ummmm, who is John Hardesty and why is he on every reunion show, cruise, etc? Why couldn’t Holly, DeAnna and the Stagliano brothers be at the same event that Jesse Csincsak is at? Oh wait, that’s right. They hate each other. Why does Natalie claim she’s never hooked up with anyone from the show then we see her tongue down Jesse Kovacs’ throat in a pool? Was Chris Harrison on his period last night? Why was he being such a pompous, condescending, bullying, ass clown with Rozlyn? What the hell was Channy doing on the panel last night? Ummm, does she still have a landing strip? One girl Jake wishes he had more time with was Christina? Really? Uhhhh, who’s Christina? Can the people they bus in for the studio audience be any more out-of-touch with what is happening on the show? Didn’t Jake’s outfit last night make you think he should be your waiter at some 3-star restaurant? So who else has Chris Harrison hit on during his time hosting the show? If Ashleigh Hunt is up there saying that “we ALL saw stuff going on between the producer and Rozlyn”, couldn’t she be a little more specific?
