The Bachelorette 6 - Ali

Bachelorette 6 Recap – 5/31/10

Remember, for this seasons spoilers, click on the either of the two links under the banner above (Part 1 & Part 2) for all your answers regarding what happens this season. And no, as of right now, still am not 100% sure of how the show ends. Hopefully I will soon.

Tomorrow I will have a column up in the morning that I feel is very important. I would like all of you to read it. I get nothing out of it, but it’s a story that I came across about two months ago, and I’ve been waiting to share it with you. No, it has nothing to do with the “Bachelorette”, or spoilers, or any of the stupidity that surrounds this show. Just something that I’ve taken a huge interest in recently and wanted to let more people aware of it. So please come back tomorrow and read the story I want to share with everyone. If you’re a mother, I think you’d especially like to read it. Truly one of the more inspirational stories I’ve come across in a while and I feel that more people should know about it.

As for last weeks show, I wanted to clear something up. If there was one theme that most of the emails I had this week surrounded, it was the preview clip for the rest of the season that showed what seemingly were cop car lights or ambulance lights, along with a siren sounding. So just that everyone knows, here’s what that’s all about: Nothing. It’s the ABC hype machine in full effect. Kinda like last season when they show a clip of Tenley saying “I’m pregnant”, then never even show that in the episode. So just know, at no point this season, do the cops, ambulance, or firetrucks show up to tend to anyone in the house – the guys or Ali. I guess they wanted to make you think Kasey was crazy and willing to slit his wrists over Ali, but as we know, that’s not even close to what happened. Whatever the case, those lights/sirens have absolutely nothing to do with anything involving any of the people left on the show. Nice touch, ABC. Referencing possible suicide with Kasey? Verrrrrrrrry classy. I guess I should expect nothing less from these classless bunch of puds.

Speaking of Kasey, I told you last week he was a spitting image of the Green Arrow character from “Smallville”, played by Justin Hartley. Well, here’s the best pics I could come up with to compare the two.

I’d say that’s pretty close. If nothing else, they both frost their tips…ha ha. What was the second biggest topic I got in emails last week after, “What were the cop cars doing in the previews?” Easy. Kasey’s voice. One person thought he sounded like Charlie Brown’s teacher. Or Kermit the Frog. Or Mush Mouth. Another is convinced he must be partially deaf. And yet another says he has a speech impediment. Geesh, and I’m the one who’s mean? Calling a guy deaf that isn’t? Ouch. I haven’t even noticed it that much. I just could tell the guy was nervous and speaking ridiculously fast. I never thought for a second he was partially deaf. If it weren’t bad enough that the show was portraying him as a stalker willing to cut himself over Ali, now fans think he can’t speak. Rough one, man.

One final question to address that I’m shocked people care enough about is how Ali hands out the roses. I swear, I get asked this ten times a season and I usually answer them back personally, but since so many people have a fascination with this, might as well address it publicly. On nights when she hands out a lot of roses, people want to know how she remembers everyone’s name. Uhhhh, it’s called editing. Those rose ceremonies take hours to film. She doesn’t just run through everyone in one take and the whole thing is wrapped in 15 minutes. Far from it. She does three, four, maybe five names at a time, they take a break, she leaves, talks to producers more, then comes back out and does the next group of names. Hence the reason they’re always doing cutaways to shots of the guys faces. She’s not the Mega Memory guy. They just film it in pieces then splice it all together like it was done in one shot. Pretty simple. Ok, on to last night…

-We start with the proverbial, “Gentleman, can you join me in the living room” line by Host Chris. On the “Bachelor”, this leads to incessant squealing by all the remaining girls. Followed by lingerie pillow fighting and all the girls tickling each other. Oh wait. That’s just in my fantasy. No, usually that squealing is done by women fresh out of bed, in sweats and no makeup looking haggard. With the guys, I think a couple high fives were exchanged, probably a few belches and a game of grab ass. I gotta say, for early in the morning, these guys didn’t look like death had just woken them up. Take a page out of their books ladies. Do yourself up nice and tidy before walking down the stairs so you don’t look like you just made the Walk of Shame after a night of dirty sex with some stranger at a bar. It’s not becoming of you. Of course, how could I possibly say that about ANY former bachelorettes who’ve been on this show? None of them have ever done such a thing.

-Of course being the first 1-on-1 of the season with Frank, Ali must break out the yellow since she seems to be addicted to that color. The response to Ali this season has been less than stellar. Every woman seems to hate her outfits, or her extensions, or the fact she holds her dresses when she walks, or that she hunches her shoulders, blah blah blah. Seriously, women are the worst sometimes. You people realize guys don’t really care about ANY of this, don’t you? You know who else doesn’t care? Ali. The girl has admitted 100 times in interviews she’s a tomboy. She wants to wear sneakers with her wedding dress. She’d much rather do something sporty on a date then get dolled up in a gown and $1M in ice. Just because you may be a girly girl, doesn’t mean Ali has to be, because she certainly isn’t. She’s even admitted to being uncomfortable having her makeup and hair done. It shows. I just think it’s funny that because she’s on TV, people are expecting her to look a certain way for their liking. I’m not trying to defend her here, I’m just pointing out facts that she’s stated herself. She’s not a runway model, nor does she want to be one. Funny that plenty of people have a hard time accepting that. I’d still do her.

-So Ali and Frank hop in some old school car, get on the 101 and have it break down on the side of the road. I love the sound mixing they threw in when the car was being pulled over. Props to the sound mixer guy that found the button on his keyboard that said “stalled engine”. That was the most generic sounding stalled engine I’ve ever heard in my life. I swear I’d heard that in movies before. So lame. Hell, I don’t even know if the car really even broke down. Maybe it did, maybe it didn’t. But I can tell you one thing that didn’t happen. Ali and Frank walking on the shoulder of one of the busiest freeways in California to the next exit until they found a cab. Yeah, something tells me that was about as likely to happen as the Weatherman not being picked on his whole life. Hey, it’s easy to pick on the weaklings. What happened in last night’s episode was basically a microcosm of Jonathan’s life. Geesh, what a weenie. More on him later.

-Back at the house, Craig the lawyer approaches “Rated R” Rego in the pool to hammer down the point that he doesn’t think he’s here for Ali. Trying to give him a verbal beatdown for basically being a liar on the first night and being one way with Ali, but another way with the guys. Same sh**, different season. This show is so cookie cutter, it’s hilarious. Lets make one thing perfectly though regarding Craig the lawyer. The consensus seems to be that Craig the lawyer and I are separated at birth. Huh? Sorry. Don’t see it. I’m much much the more handsome lad like than that guy. Maybe it’s the hair line. Not sure. I can tell you one thing I’ve got over him: I’m much more sober. Good Lord. How sauced was he when he was talking to Justin? Drunk people are the best. They are always right, you are always wrong, and that’s just the way it is. Craig the lawyer and Craig M. should’ve both been served breathalyzers during last night’s show, and combined they probably would’ve blew a .95. Yes, I realize that puts them at both around a .50 and legally dead, but Jesus, did you see the way they acted all night? The alcohol intake was completely unbearable between these two.

-Something I noticed between Frank and Ali last night. How many times did he pick her up and swing her around? Did she get that from watching Gia hang on Jake like a monkey all last season? Or is that her way of nonverbally telling Frank she likes to be dominated in every which way? I’ll go with the latter. Sounds hotter to me. Maybe it’s just me, and maybe because I’m not on TV I don’t need to overact with the girl I’m with, but I honestly can’t remember the last time I picked a girl up and spun her around as I hugged her. Does that make me less romantic? Is that why I’m still single? As I turned 35 yesterday, apparently these are questions I have to start pondering. So, we all knew Frank’s story about giving up a good job and moving to Paris to write screenplays. He let Ali in on a little more during their time at the Hollywood sign. Frank: “I’m managing a retail store while I write.” Awesome. Who isn’t? That’s like asking any wannabe actor in LA, “Hey, what restaurant do you work at?” Does Frank work at Structure? Oh wait, they’re out of business. Maybe he works at Express for Men. Or Banana Republic. Or J Crew. Probably the least shocking thing I heard last night was that Frank works in retail. He just looks like the guy who comes up to me when I’m browsing Abercrombie and Fitch and wants to let me know “if you need anything, don’t hesitate to ask.”

-Oh boy. The people who don’t read spoilers are falling right into ABC’s trap of “They’re gonna love Frank right now, but wait til later” after Frank starts gushing about Ali. Frank: “Even though it’s our first date, I see so many qualities in Ali that I’ve always been looking for. I’m already starting to feel something for her.” Ouch. This is not going to end well for him. I wonder what Nicole thought of Ali and Frank mauling each other on their date? Think she got a little jealous last night? Did they watch the show together? Did he cover her eyes when he and Ali were hot and heavy? You know, another question I got asked a lot after last week was something to the effect of, “At what point do you think Frank stopped liking Ali and knew he wanted to be back with his ex?” Sh**, hell if I know. I have no idea. I just know he wanted to tell Ali much sooner than the overnights and wasn’t allowed to. So does that mean all this was an act? Did he realize it later on? No clue. Sorry. I’m guessing there’s only one person that knows the answer to that, and that’s Frank. So if you run into him on the streets of Chicago, be sure to ask him. I’m sure he’ll be more than glad to tell you, since once this show is over, he’ll only be asked a million times what his real feelings were for Ali. Good luck with that, Frankie. I’m sure that won’t get old.

-Ali says there are four things she likes about Frank: He’s funny, smart, quirky, and…uhhhh, then she said “there’s nothing, like, normal about you.” So was that #4? And if it was, does she want a do-over on that? I sure would. Is that a compliment? Maybe she’s just nervous. She only named three things then went off on a tangent. Or maybe it’s just Ali has butterflies in her stomach and is so giddy around Frank she loses all train of thought. Must be it. Frank loved the date. “Best first date I ever had.” Man. Just turn the knife into Nicole’s stomach, why don’t ya’ Frank? Nicole must be watching this saying, “And I took you back why again?” Ha ha. Either that, or those two are having the biggest laugh on Monday nights watching this train wreck. Frank’s with the person he left Ali for so I’m guessing he probably doesn’t care at this point what people are gonna think about him. Why should he? You know, I can even admit it now, but when Jason dumped Melissa to be with Molly, sure he knew he’d take heat for it, but in the long run, he was with the person he felt the strongest for. And now that they’re married, it’s even more of an in-your-face to doubters like me. Sure, he went about it all wrong by re-enacting their breakup on national TV when it was already over between them, but I’m just talking about what he was feeling. Like he was crucified for what he did, but in the end, it all turned out for the best since they’re married. I never built up any strong hatred for him anyways. That was the angry housewives. I just didn’t care for HOW he did it. Whether Jason was with Melissa had no bearing on my life whatsoever, so no need to get worked up over it. Too bad not everyone could accept that.

    Steve, you’re probably going to have to explain who “mush mouth” is. Not everyone outside of the DFW area will know he is a character on 1310 “The Ticket”.

    steve, you say not so – but i’ve thought since the first night this “bachelorette” was on that you look just like craig r. .. same voice tone too.

    From the description above, the Bachelor Pad sounds more interesting than the Bachelor/ette regular episodes.

    Happy (belated) Birthday, Steve — Wow, 35 is a significant age. You are now old enough to run for President!

    Hey Steve, noticed that Jonathan is no longer working for Channel 2 here in Houston. Did he have to quit or was he fired, or did he just move on?

    I am so disappointed that Craig H from Canada didn’t get a bigger “storyline”. He hardly spent any time with Ali and we hardly saw him at all at the house…why was he “down-played” so?? Then, last night, it showed Craig and Ty saying goodbye to Ali but no Craig, although he didn’t get a rose? That’s so weird since I thought we would be seeing a lot of him!

    This is not regarding the Bachelorette show, but reality tv. Have you noticed that the same people keep showing up on different shows? This guy Mark who is a realtor, used to date supermodels…he was on the Millionaire Matchmaker, Baggage, AND that show seducing Cindy??? Is that right…pretty sure I got the title wrong there. Also on Baggage, I have seen other reality show repeaters. Is it easier to get on a reality tv show if you’ve already been on one? And what about Megan who was on Beauty and the Geek and then Rock of Love…not to mention that I love Money show. Will there be another Big Brother on CBS? Steve, I love your blog and I really hope I’m not as reality tv obsessed as it sounds.

    Last night when giving out the roses my husband says to me that the weatherman already has a rose so when did he go on a date. I said she hasn’t given him one yet. We go backwards and there he is standing next to Mr. Dangerous Man with a rose. Forward to where we were and he has no rose. Apparently they edited it so Mr. Watherman gets the rose near the last. I guess they did it so you’d be wondering til the last if he gets a rose but I thought it was just plain stupid!!

    I just have to say, your comments are hilarious. I can’t get through one paragraph before pausing to laugh my ass off 😛 And yeah, you look like Craig.

  9. alyssa

    June 1, 2010 at 12:40 PM

    That guy, Jay, or that dangerous guy last night, looks exactly like the Green Goblin in Spiderman! I mean, somewhat different but my sister and I think they look so alike!!!

    I’m the one who called kasey a mush mouth. I didn’t know it is some “character” on the radio or whatever. It is my generic term for someone who slurs all their words together, while talking fast and/or in a low [hard to hear] voice.

    Notice that they put the weatherman and his nemesis right next to each other for the rose ceremony?

    Hi Steve..

    Well..after months of reading your website I finally decided to register..

    I’ve enjoyed all your columns..insights..knowledge & humor..

    First I’ll say that I do NOT see the resemblence between you and lawyer Craig..I think he looks like Peyton Manning of the are much better looking 😉

    I also noticed that “weatherman” had a rose before it was given to him..OOPS..loooooool..guess they thought the viewers of this show wouldn’t notice such a mistake…

    Okay..enough rambling from a “newbie” laters..keep up the great work..

    Hey Steve,
    Great post as always.
    Don’t know if this is an original idea or not but just came to me last night…New drinking game. Every time someone says “AMAZING”, take a drink. Last night it was said at least 30 times. I could have been s***faced by the rose ceremony! LOL Boy was it getting on my nerves.
    The other most annoying thing was the entire date with Frank. HELLO! They just met and could not keep their hands off eachother! Get a room…and yes her clinging to him like a monkey was very reminsicent of Gia. Frank is not even attractive IMO. I noticed he ditched his glasses to try to appear less nerdy!

    PS. You are way hotter than Craig “I’m a lawyer and I cannot shut up”
    PSS. I actually felt sorry for the little weatherman. It’s not his fault he’s short. Bullies suck!

  13. quesara

    June 1, 2010 at 1:35 PM

    Oh one more thing…Does Ali seem to have Daddy issues? I don’t remember there being a Dad around on her hometown date with Jake. Maybe that is why she always seemed to turn her back to the guys to be cradled like a little girl?

  14. hydichika03

    June 1, 2010 at 1:51 PM

    First of all, I am sorry people are saying you resemble Chris R.(The guy with no package what-so-ever) Is he secretly a woman? If so he is one fugly woman! LoL!! You look nothing like him. How insulting. Secondly, have you noticed how “Peculiar man” looks peculiarly like Michael Phelps with blue eyes?! I hope he’s not stashing any dope on the show on top of being extremely dopey himself. Best of luck to Ali though! I hope this season she can find a guy that isn’t hiding in the closet!

  15. Siryn

    June 1, 2010 at 1:51 PM

    Was “The Weatherman” drinking Kool-Aid last night? At one point, just before they went to commercial, they showed Jonathan drinking what looked like a big ol’ glass of cherry Kool-Aid.

    June 1, 2010 at 2:01 PM

    I noticed that all of Ali’s top guys were at home together. Frank, Jesse, Roberto and Chris L. Speaking of Chris L. The guy was either so nervous last night with Ali or tweaked out or just an incredibly hyper guy. I see absolutely zero chemistry between them. I’m curious to see how he evolves into being one of her final two.

    And Frank. What a joke. He followed his passion and went to Paris. Haha. For a month and a half!

    Oh. Also curious to see how Kirk gets to be a final 4 guy since I barley remember him. He with the magic rose?

    I also noticed as did another poster that they didn’t even give the 3rd guy any airtime upon exiting the house.

    June 1, 2010 at 2:08 PM

    LOL…I’ve finally decided to join your website. Every week I eagerly await to see what else you are gonna say about the show. And before I finished reading your article and even before I got through reading all the names for the Bachelor Pad…I saw Kypton, and said Tenley would be perfect for him!! Then, like a said there is something going on between them! Fantastic…dreams really do come true..and now they can get married in Fantasyland at Disneyworld…I can just see it now. Tenley will be wearing her Cinderella Dress and Kypton, her knight in shining armour riding up on a white horse! UGH, make me barf…anyway, back to the show!!

    Can you tell me if Frank has done any acting because he’s fantastic at it…I mean, the show is pimping him out to look like a dream come true for Ali. I must say…even Rico Sauve is getting to me with those wonder she keeps him around…he stares into the camera..and I’m already to pass out!:)

    Can’t wait to hear who’s she’s picked! Kinda hoping it’s the Latin Lover…if not..he would make a great Bachelor…just saying:)

    Jonathan is a personal friend and he is one of the most awesome, hilarious people alive! (notice how all the sound bytes were his) He clearly adds a lot more entertainment value than the rest of these Booooring dudes. So what if he’s short? Tom Cruise is short…Al Pacino is of smaller stature- and look at these guys careers.

    This is not the last we will see of Jonathan. Alli is not his type- but I know he will get offers for other projects- because he rocks! His parents are sweethearts and they raised a good son!

    Trust me on this- Jonathan is going to be this Season’s Break out STAR!

    Amazing or EXCITED are the drinking game words. Speaking of drinking, Ali herself was slurring her words and thoughts too. And I too think Kasey sounds like he’s deaf or something.

    Man, Craig M. was scarey! He’s the kind of guy you see and think is really good looking until he opens his mouth and has NOTHING to say….

  20. dojrtw

    June 1, 2010 at 5:02 PM

    When watching the show, I was on Team Jonathan and really felt bad for him. But I do see your point about how he could have just taken it all more lightly. Still, I think Craig deserved to go home because he was just rude to everyone. There wasn’t a bigger drama with jesse because ty took him away. But yea, there was a bit of over-reaction going on.
    Roberto and Chris L were the ones who said they’d ignore guy drama and get the girl… foreshadowing!
    A little point i realized is that both jake and ali picked people for their first one-on-one dates that they did end up having a connection with, but that left them and broke their hearts. oops.
    Also you can totally match everyone this season with someone from a past season; they really should at least mix up the story line if they are going to create one.
    I like Kasey. I think he’s really genuine, even if he’s a tad too sappy. And his voice sounds a tiny bit odd, but not really an issue… I will feel really bad for him on that rose or go.
    I think Ali is at her best in the converse and braid look because she is so much more comfortable. Not to say I think she looks even half bad in her dresses. I could never walk in one of those things.
    Ali is so wrong about both Justin and Frank. In the first show she said she hopes she will know when someone isn’t there for her. oops.
    How is Tenley gonna survive bachelor pad?? I love her, but I don’t think that’s the right show for her…

  21. KRISSY

    June 1, 2010 at 5:25 PM

    Mushmouth isn’t a Dallas character! It is a cartoon character on Fat Albert!
    I think Kasey sounds like he has peanut butter on the roof of his mouth when he talks.

    FYI, if you check out the Diary of the Departed video on the site, you can hear how poor the audio is for Chris H’s departure interview. It sounds like they used the camera mic and not a boom. A show like this would NEVER want to appear cheap, so they left it off the broadcast. I know cuz I work in television. Someone probably lost their job over that little snafu…

  23. dojrtw

    June 1, 2010 at 5:46 PM

    Hahahaha also love the “Karma’s a bitch” line in the preview for next week, referring to Justin. In his case, it so is!

    Did you also notice when they pulled to the side of the road in the “stalled” car that they pulled next to a concrete wall? And then when they got out to walk, there was dirt, trees and NO concrete wall. Stupid editors. They should be fired for that AND the fubar with the final rose and Jonathan. Love your site!

    For some reason, I’m having trouble getting into this season. Last week, I watched it for a few minutes, but decided to watch the Lost finale for a second time. This week, I did other things and only flipped it on here and there. Steve’s blog is the most entertaining part of the show. The problem with the Bachelorette is that we always have to endure a Bachelor reject who’s boring. Can’t they cast an interesting unknown?

  26. bachelorwatcher

    June 2, 2010 at 2:17 AM

    okay first… you look like Craig the Lawyer’s cousin, maaaaybe brother. But to say you two look alike is not really insulting to either of you. He’s ok looking and so are you. You two just almost sort of barely resemble each other. Second… I noticed that little edit mishap with the car stalling. Such wasted time to reenact their car stalling from an above angle. If it really happened, let’s see a little footage of it all going down for real… even if it means seeing some cameramen. Crazy they go to such lengths to make everything look as if it’s filmed without cameras. Like this all happens and magic makes it appear on television. Third… Craig the lawyer does in fact have a package, I noticed it was blurred out every time it was shown. Guess that snug red speedo hugged a little too tight for it’s early time slot viewers. (and yes I rewound my dvr a few times curious of what the red blur was really trying to hide… so it had to be significant to go to the trouble.) Fourth… ok so Jonathan was REALLY irritating by the end of the episode. At first you are like hey bully Craig, Weatherman has a name and it’s time to leave him alone. But after a while you’re just shouting Hey tiny Weatherman, pull your undropped balls out from inside yourself long enough to prove you have a purpose in this life. Judging by the fact that no one was standing up for him and just laughing along with Craig… I’d say they were all a little irritated by him as well.
    I am curious to see how this Roberto and Chris L. romance pans out. I’m guessing that because of the majority of these guys being douche bag losers, she reaches the end and is left with the two of them so there are no other options to explore. Maybe the reason you don’t know who she picks is that she pulls a Brad Womack and doesn’t pick either? Or maybe with your website creating such buzz, the producers decided to wait on filming her final pick? Possibly made it more closed off than usual? Actually… speaking of that… with your site giving away SO much and it proving to be accurate… obviously your insiders are really on the inside. That kind of blows away signing confidentiality agreements. Why haven’t they done more to protect their show? Does it have such an abundance of viewers that your site only creates more? Which would mean they actually appreciate a site like yours? Things to ponder.

    Krissy, “Mush Mouth” is a fictional character on a radio station 1310 am “The Ticket” here in Dallas. Thats not to say there aren’t other mush mouths around the country; this is the one I know since I live here in the DFW area and I listen to 1310. The mush mouth on 1310 is simply a character that is used for comedy routines from time to time.

    I feel the same way about the weatherman. He creeps me out! He is the biggest dork- just NOTHING cool about him whatsoever. I am surprised Ali kept him, because if it was me, I would have gotten rid of him asap. Something about his mouth and his icky little smile…

    I agree with those who are having issues with Ali. I liked her so much on her season with Jake. This season? UGH. The ratty, fake hair, the caked on makeup, the awful outfits. She also seems to be putting her hands up in the air and screaming “WOOHOO!!!!!!!” (or some variation) every chance she gets. She seems awkward being with the guys and going out on dates– I just don’t get that romantic sort of vibe from her. She seems more like one of the guys and there is pretty much nothing sexy about her.

    Another editing mistake last night– when the car broke down and pulled over the first time, it stopped or stalled in the middle of traffic. You can see a car in front of it and a truck ahead of it to the right. Then, the next thing you know, the car is no longer stalled IN traffic but it is pulled over to the side of the road. The car is on the cement shoulder and next to the car is an enormous concrete wall (one of those sound barrier walls). However, then it goes to commercial break (I think) and when you come back, Ali and Frank are getting out of the car onto a shoulder covered with dirt, grass, and pine trees. No concrete wall. In the original overhead shot with the cement shoulder and concrete wall, there were NO trees, no dirt, no grass— only conrete.

    Soooo I’m confused, you’ve pointed out that people think you look like Craig the lawyer and that you think Kasey looks like some guy from Smallville, but no one has mentioned how creepily Craig “Douchebag” M. looks EXACTLY like Dean McDermott? How is this possible?

    P.S. My husband thinks he actually looks like a less cool version of Robert Downey Jr., which I can sorta see, but if he’s not a dead ringer for Dean with the hair and all, I don’t know who is…

    LillyLogan – is this the reason Johnathan is on the become the “next breakout star”? You sure make it look like it is.

    You know, it’s funny, but when I see Ali with her nasty hair extensions, and fake orange tan, it reminds me of someone from the Bachelor last season, namely Vienna! Like, is Ali doing all she can to look trashy like they made Vienna look? Oh yes, I certainly think so!

    Sad if ABC is now editing out covered up weenies! I never thought this show could be that comical! I for one did not see a red blob, just a very flat red speedo..But taking away his manhood and making him look like a fugly woman on national television. Now that is hilarious! I guess they decided they couldn’t handle another weeny on the show. In my opinion, many of these guys seem a little “flat” LoL Are we sure they are on the show for Ali? Or is it the thought of 24 other guys in the running for her that caught their attention to join?

    I’m pretty sure that the car breaking down was staged. If you watch the episode again you will see the video from the helicopter shows that there is a concrete barrier next to the car. Then when they are taping on the ground there is dirt on the right hand side of the car. Something is fishy with that scene and if you go back and watch it you can tell they taped it in two different places.

    I read awhile back that they write the name of the bachelor on the stem of the rose. I’ve noticed that the person looks at the stem and then calls the name.

    I think that Ali is a horrible Bachelorette. She appears immature (almost high school bitchy – just like last season with Vienna), and nervous – all the time. Her constant laughing every few minutes is really getting on my nerves. She is not cut out for this process at all – at least Jillian was better and more polished. The fact that she made such a big deal about her job and career being sooooo important to her last season with Jake, felt fake to me (well Jake did too, but we already all know that!) Now, all of sudden she left her much coveted job for 15 minutes of fame in a flash. I highly doubt any of these guys will fall in love with her, or she them. She is not there for the “right reason”s. Sure they think she is cute and blond – but all guys fall for that temporarily. Basically, she is boring.

    @ EC:

    Why be afraid of Ali picking no one? Whatever in in the ABC script is exactly what will happen. Last season it was Jake picking the skanky swamp thing. This time around it may be the fuzzy catepillar eye-browed latin baseball player wanna-be. Who really gives a rats a$$ anyway? Its a boring, scripted, piece of crap show. Why do you think Steve takes the time to trash it every week?

    Steve, for a nominal fee 🙂 I can proof read your posts before you post them. You have several grammatical errors and typos all the time! I love your blog, but it really bothers me and probably the other educated people who read your blog.
    And stop picking on Roberto! I’d like to see you go play baseball. Just because he doesn’t play for the major leagues doesn’t mean he has to pretend he never played at all. What’s wrong with him telling Ali that he played in the minors and playing ball with her? He didn’t over embellish or anything. You’re a jerk sometimes! But I still like you. But I will stick up for Roberto until he actually does something wrong.

    Steve, please make your posts shorter!! It’s difficult reading War & Peace with so much going on in our lives. The bach board fans and I loved the RS posts from two years ago: funny & quick. Or how about subheads with the major info.

    My best guess as to why Kasey’s voice is unusual…I think he was born with a cleft palate. I am a nurse and have taken care of a lot of kids with this birth defect. I’m sure he’s had surgery, but it can’t fix everything. I have a feeling that he’ll share that with Ali eventually.

    I watched the first episode before I read your spoilers. The funny thing is that I picked out Justin as a total phony. I was not surprised that the guys felt the same way. Ali should have listened to them! I didn’t like Frank, found him way too eager, almost obsessive about Ali, as though he fell in love with her before he even met her.

    Having formed some first impressions, it was more than interesting to come here and read all those spoilers! Good stuff again from you! Frank is the one that really shocked me! So he wanted to go back with his ex way before the overnight dates! What is with these people? You don’t suddenly realize you still want your ex unless something was still there! While I do feel for him having to tape a video of his girlfriend and now face the wrath of millions of female fans of the show, when TPTB strategically place it in the most damning timeframe.

    Justin is just a player. Pure and simple. I know it’s easier for us looking from the outside in, to sometimes spot these creeps way before the bachelorette does, but I would pay attention to an overwhelming majority of the guys voting for this guy to go. Men are usually pretty good at figuring each other out and they don’t tend to have the cattiness and mean-spirited petty crap that women do. I don’t the guys could have anticipated that Justin was THAT low! This should be fun! I love knowing the spoilers ahead of time. It gives me a sense of power over TPTB. It’s easy to see the editing and manipulation when you know what’s coming.

    I really liked Roberto right from the beginning. I am not sure why you seem to be kind of down on him. Looking over this bunch, he really stands out. I think he has this sexy, smoldering appeal and charm that would make me sit up and take notice. Compared to the likes of Craig M. or Jonathan, he is a jewel among a lot of jerks!

    I do agree that Craig M. is a bad drunk, I mean really bad. However, Jonathan totally overreacted to his taunts, making him do it even more. Jonathan has what I like to call “the Napoleonic complex”. You called it short man’s disease or complex. He sounded like a whiny baby when he went complaining to Ali. I say she should have sent them both packing!

    Now that I know who the final two are, I think Ali did the best with a sorry group of guys. I am not feeling Chris L. or Cape Cod Chris, as I am calling him. I just haven’t seen enough yet.

    One more time, I will say that the people who sign these contracts and go on this show, really have to get a lawyer or someone who can interpret legalese, to read what they are signing in advance. While I sympathize with what happened to Frank, just like Rozlyn and Wes and all the others, they essentially gave these people the power to manipulate their lives, reputation and character for a specific period of time. That’s a lot to give up.
    Let the signer beware!

    I have a theory about why the editing is getting so sloppy. I think that they are getting more and more “actors” to appear on this show and pretend to be fighting for Ali’s heart. Since they need to pay people to be ON the show, they can’t afford to pay high quality behind-the-scenes workers who are supposed to make us believe what we are seeing. In previous Bachelor seasons, you see many women standing with their hands behind their backs during the rose ceremonies. It’s a lot easier to edit when they are hiding their roses than if they are pinned to a lapel.

    Please don’t let the poster above edit your blog. This “educated person”, and educator, had a harder time with their post and their poor sentence structure than reading anything that you write!

    Steve-o, I so agree with you re: Jonathan v Craig. Sure, Craig was a bully. But he wasn’t nearly as bad as some of the guys we’ve seen on this show before! And he was entertaining as hell, whereas Jonathan was just a whiny little tattle tale. Come ON man- grow a pair, suck it up, and have a sense of humour! Using all of your one-on-one time that week to whine about the bully picking on you (when what he was doing wasn’t even THAT bad, honestly- and ALL the other guys seemed to be in the same boat)- ugh. Major turn off. I’d have booted him too. Then again, I guess Ali recognizes a bit of herself in the whole “Mission: get so-and-so kicked off” guy, given that that was her role last season with Vienna.

    And yeah, I agree about the pretending-he-doesn’t-want-to-tell thing. I hated the whole “well… I mean, do you want to know? Because…” shut up. You want to tell her. Be the whiny b***h that you are and own it. All right. Rant over. Blech!

    p.s. I think Kasey is the spitting image of Jake, moreso than the Green Lantern. But that’s just me.

    I totally noticed that clip where johnathan is wearing a rose, then he got called I was like uhh..stupid ABC chops up the shows like crazy. It’s amazing if any of the conversations are real haha.

    @ desdes

    Why in the world would ANYONE care if Jake and Vienna make an appearance on this season!?!?! They are the worst, most insignificant couple ever and if I never lay eyes on them for the rest of my life it will be too soon. But as sure as the sun rises each day, Jake will find his way back on TV somehow. Pet Star host maybe? ugh.
