-Sweet. The video messages are back! These are always fun to watch. Just one guy/girl talking into a camera basically begging and pleading one last time why they should be picked. Incredibly awkward for the person in it doing the talking, but also incredibly awesome for us watching at home. As for Emily, uhhhhh, could she have looked any more sick to her stomach watching all three videos? It looked like she was gonna hurl every time a new guy came on screen. Did she crack a smile once? Someone get this woman some Pepto. Videos:
Sean: I don’t know what he said, other than he opened up, told her he loved her, and that he was excited about their future. This is where the gurgling in Emily’s stomach started.
Jef: With his pompadour blowing in the Curacao wind, he was his usual self. Spewing lines like “On the Ferris Wheel in London, I never wanted to come down. On the floor in Prague, I never wanted to come up,” quoting Ecards, telling her he loved her, and saying he couldn’t wait to play Pin the Tail on the Donkey with Ricki. And have dance parties with her/their friends.
Arie: He knew from Dollywood that they’d fit so well together. This of course was on take 37, as we saw at the end of the show during the credits. Arie apparently has a hard time forming sentences.
Time for the rose ceremony. After puking in the bushes before arriving, Emily starts talking. “I cannot believe we’re at this point…we started everything in Charlotte…I pictured my fairy tale in Charlotte…three different guys being there at the end…that’s what makes this so hard…I care so much about each of you and I’m sorry…Chris, do you mind bringing me over another barf bag? I’m about to blow chunks again.”
Jef: The first time he’s been a finalist for anything since a couple weeks before leaving to do the show, he made it to the finals of the Spelling Bee in his class.
Arie: Uh oh. Actually having to wake up before the crack of noon is becoming closer to a reality for him. He’s gotta be worried.
I think this was the first time in the show’s history where the lead didn’t even give the person a reason as to why they let them go, yet, Sean couldn’t have handled it any better. It’s not like Sean is gonna have a hard time finding a date in Dallas after this. Please. All class when he got eliminated last night. Didn’t cry, didn’t bitch and moan, didn’t curse, didn’t pull a Chris from last week and pout. The most normal exit from someone leaving that late in the show that we’ve seen. And he easily could’ve flown off the handle considering she never even gave him a reason. Although his exit was uneventful, I think it showed his character more than anything. Just seems like a good guy all around. Probably wasn’t rough around the edges enough for Emily is my guess.
