Do you think the men have an opportunity to masturbate after their one on ones? 🙂 seems to me the time they’re on the show is too long to go without. Or does their “hand”ler help them with that too?
Comment: I’m sure every guy who’s ever been on that show, at some point or another, found some “alone” time when they were in the shower. I’m sorry, but confined to a house, only surrounded by dudes, no contact with the outside world, and your only focus is on one girl? Please. They’d be idiots not to.
Hate to bother you – know you probably get thousands of emails but I’m confused in where to find your latest information. Seems in the past when I’ve gone on your site the latest writings were on the first page. When I go into Ashley’s spoilers it always brings up the first night and I don’t know where to find current updates. I clicked around in there and am just not finding it. I love your humor, sarcasm and candidness.
Comment: And the streak continues…
I’m a big fan of yours and love reading your blogs. Here’s my question. I’ve noticed that Ashley’s dates have been incredibly boring compared to dates from past Bachelor and Bachlorette seasons. Any idea why we haven’t seen any bungee jumping, building repelling, tight rope walking? Is Ashley just a total chicken? Frankly, her dates are a snooze fest.
Comment: Yeah, I will say this season’s dates have been a lot of walking around streets shopping with not a lot of action. Not sure why? We know from Ashley last season that she’s afraid of helicopters, so that explains why we haven’t seen any of those. Not hot tub scenes is the head scratcher though. It’s not like Ashley would be self conscious about her body or anything. She was in a bikini a lot last season. But definitely not a lot of adventure to this season’s dates. Maybe they just wanted to change it up a bit.
Great job on this weeks recap, I found it profoundly funny and very insightful. I laughed a lot.
In my humble opinion, this week’s recap is the best one you have written. Which week do you think was your best?
Comment: I have no idea. Once I write the column, I can’t remember over half the stuff I even said. When you’ve been doing this for eight years, and have written over 300 posts regarding this show, it’s impossible to remember one that sticks out. All I know is I’ve enjoyed adding the “90210”, “Saved by the Bell”, and “Karate Kid” clips. I’ll try to keep that up and incorporate other things, but the column already takes as long as it does without trying to find stuff to fit in, so there’s no guarantee.
My question: Do you know if on nights when they cut out the cocktail party they get to hang out after the roses are given out? Seems to me to be such a waste if they get all dressed up, don’t get to party, get their rose and then go ‘home’. They should at least get to enjoy their evening, don’t you think?
Comment: No. Once the roses are given out, the night is pretty much finished since it’s so early in the morning at that point anyway, and they still need to get an ITM from Ashley and the rejected guy(s), so there’s really no “hang out” time afterwards.
