-Date card comes for the group date, and someone’s nervous. That would be Aaaaaasssshhhlllleeeeee Sppppaaaaaaavey’s gall bladder. “Ahh fill like um gunna pee mah pants.” And as you already knew being an avid reader of this site, Jackie, Emily, Lisa, Marissa, Ali, Chantal, Britt, and Michelle get the NASCAR group date. That leaves The Ashley Sisters as the ones for the 2-on-1 date, which leaves the rest of the room crying. No one wants to see either of them leave, including myself. I mean, did you SEE the video earlier? I think they could’ve done all two hours on just the camera in that room for the whole night. That would be some riveting television. But of course, Michelle has to chime in and pee in everyone’s Cheerios by telling us this is a good thing. “It’s time for the Ashleys to part and go their separate ways.” Awwwww man. Just when I was starting to like Michelle she has to go and say something like that. I mean, I know she’s playing it up for the cameras and just following along with her character, but just once she could’ve humored me. Just once she could’ve played nicey nice and said how much she adored both of them. Just once she could’ve climbed in bed with the two of them, crawled under the covers and started…forget it.
-So the ladies arrive at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to see Ficklewhiner driving around the course at a whopping 65 mph or whatever the hell it was. He gets out of his car in full gear to give the ladies a, you guessed it, history lesson on Las Vegas Motor Speedway! How did I know that was coming? “This is where Dale Earnhardt Jr and Jeff Gordon among others are gonna be racing in five weeks.” Emily, upon hearing Dale’s name, just had a mini orgasm I believe. You know how I know Brad rehearsed that? Because it was filmed in October, and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is at the LVMS on March 6th. Well whaddya know? That’s five weeks from today. Amazing how that works. Good job on thinking ahead guys. They give you free reign of their racetrack for a night, you make sure to plug the next time they’ll be there. Seems like a fair trade off. And why wouldn’t you? I mean, I can’t tell you how many NASCAR fans are glued to their TV every Monday night watching the “Bachelor”? They all love it. You know, with the fancy cars, and exotic dates. This is like fantasy land for people who think the 20pc bucket at KFC is considered “fine dining”.
-I loved watching the time trial racing the women did. Especially Britts. She looked like the old woman from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” where the steering wheel was about a foot above her head. Something tells me Britt never got over about 17mph. Call me crazy. Last time I checked, it was impossible to drive when the steering wheel weighs more than you do. As for Emily, yet another reason why this whole NASCAR date is getting blown out of proportion. Maybe I’m wrong, but isn’t this the first time we’ve seen her wear Ricky’s ring on the show? Whatever the case, she obviously was told about it beforehand, they no doubt asked her to wear the ring, and she obviously didn’t have a problem with it. They knew it would enhance the emotional side of the date, and it seems like she just went along with everything. I can’t believe people are upset over this date. If she objected to it, considering she is their golden child this season, she never would’ve agreed to it. Sure, she cried last night, but it wasn’t because she was hyperventilating and freaking out and about to go postal on someone. She even told “People” magazine last week to just watch the date before making a judgment about it. She obviously wasn’t negatively affected by it. Anyone who says they were has lost complete touch with reality. It’s a freakin’ TV show. Quit getting attached to people you have absolutely no idea about. You’re seeing an edited 80 minute episode of them for a couple months. Thinking you know who they are by what you see on TV is about as stupid as you can get.
-So Stephen Bradley Womack is quite the observant one and sees that something is wrong with Emily. Well, actually not, they just told him and and he pulled her to the infield grass. On their 1-on-1, she only told him Ricky died in a plane crash and that he was in racing. She had never told Brad he was a NASCAR driver. So the little Whippleheimer feels like a dolt. “I feel like a jerk. I honestly had no idea. It’s me that picked the date, not you.” Ok, no need to lie to her now. Sure, you didn’t know Ricky Hendrick of the Hendricks Motor Sports team was her husband, but for you to say you picked the date was just a flat out lie. Here’s how it goes: Obviously Brad is in constant communication with the producers at all times. They know exactly who he likes and who he doesn’t. So when Chris Harrison says in an interview last week:
“So producers will definitely have a large say, but also Brad will sit down, our producers will sit with Brad and say, without telling him about the dates because sometimes we want him surprised as to where he’s going, we’ll say, who do you really want to spend time with? And who have you felt like has been sliding or who do you feel like you need to, sometimes it might not be for a good reason, sometimes it might be someone who on a one-on-one date he really may want to go home or he wants to really put on the spot…”
He’s flat out lying. He’s trying to make it seem like it’s a collaborative effort by Brad and the producers who gets to go on which date. It’s not. They have storylines set up for who gets to go where, and they place each girl on a date that best fits their storyline for her. Chris says later in that answer regarding the 2-on-1 date:
“So Brad definitely had a say on who goes on the two-on-one date this week and as producers we want that date to be compelling. It’s really important that as a viewer you feel like either girl has a real opportunity of going home. Obviously, if say, Emily, who he has a great connection with, or even a Chantal, who he has a great connection with, if she’s on the two-on-one date, right away you’ll be like, well he likes her, we know she’s probably not going to go home this week. It just makes it too obvious…”
That’s not true either. The producers already know who is going home when they schedule those 2-on-1 dates because they’ve already sat down beforehand with Brad, find out which girls he prefers over others, so they chose The Ashley Sisters because of the storyline of them being friends and to make it seem like a tough decision. Ashley Spivey was put on that 2-on-1 date because they knew she was going home. It’s the way the show has always worked. Of course they’re not gonna put two people on the date that you think he still wants to be with. They need a dramatic effect, and those two gave them the best one. Chris is right about one thing. If they put Emily or Chantal on the 2-on-1, everyone in America knows whoever the other one is on the date is going home. There’s zero suspense. They have to make it a little more evenly matched. But basically, they will go to Brad and say, “Ok, who do you NOT want here anymore.” When he tells them, “I just don’t see it with Ashley S”, or, “I’m more into some of the others than Ashley S”, that’s when they decide she’ll be the one on the 2-on-1 date. She’s put on the date because they already know she’s going home. That’s the easiest way to describe it.
