Now on to Emily’s season and what’s happening on the “Bachelorette.” If you missed my tweet Friday morning, I told you all that the guy from the 1-on-1 date had been identified, and his name is Chris Bukowski (he will be added to the “Emily’s Guys” link in the navigation bar later this week). Also I mentioned in the tweet that filming has wrapped in Charlotte and they have started traveling as they took off for Bermuda this weekend and are staying at the Rosewood Tucker’s Point Resort (the picture posted on the previous page). The only thing I could possibly see them coming back to Charlotte for would maybe be the rose ceremony after the hometown dates, but that’s just a guess. Trucks have moved in on the mansion on Marvin Road in Charlotte, movers were there yesterday, and it looks like that house is no longer of use to them this season. Wow. 10 days of filming in Charlotte? That’s all? I was told from the beginning they were only gonna be there three to four episodes, but 10 days seems awfully short. Regardless, they are in Bermuda and filming began yesterday.
I have a picture of the guys at the Charlotte airport leaving this past Sunday for Bermuda. I also have a lot of first names, but not many last names, and I’ve been able to identify which first name is with most of the guys. I haven’t decided when I’m going to release that pic with who is left. I might do it later this week, or I might wait until I have everyone’s first and last name before I do it. But as of Sunday, I know a majority of the guys that are left and have seen all their faces, and matched up most of their first names. Yesterday, there was a date in St. George’s (King Square) with a group of Bermuda Gombeys dancing. Bermuda Gombeys are troupes of dancers that wear brightly colored costumes with masks and hats made with peacock feathers. Geez, could that possibly be any similar to Ben’s date in Panama? Nice originality. Whatever the case, knowing that the first date in a new city is always a 1-on-1, I’m assuming that one yesterday was as well. One thing I do know is that Aaron Martell is returning back to teaching tomorrow, so he is off the show.
I had said a couple weeks back that I was told of three locations where they were headed this season, but still hadn’t gotten it 100% confirmed. Well, I still haven’t heard back from that source so I’m not ready to release that information yet. However, I can say that of the three places I was told a couple weeks ago, Bermuda was not one of them. So either this source didn’t know they were headed to Bermuda and just mentioned the ones they knew about, or, their information was wrong and they might not even be headed to the other locations. That’s what I’m trying to figure out. Once I get confirmation, I will let you know.
