Bachelor Sean Spoilers

The Bachelor Sean’s Episode-by-Episode Spoilers

Episode 1: Los Angeles, CA (26 down to 19)

In case you missed my Q&A on Twitter yesterday where I answered questions regarding Episode 1, and you don’t feel like going through a bunch of tweets, I’ll summarize episode 1 for you as best I can:

-As reported way back in September right after it happened, Arie showed up to the mansion to film a segment with Sean about his journey, they reminisced about their time with Emily, Arie gives Sean pointers on kissing, and it’s a knee-slapping good time. Or something like that.

-9 girls have hometown videos: Ashley P, Kristy, Lesley, Robyn, AshLee F., Tierra, Desiree, Diana, and Sarah. The most memorable ones are Ashley P. telling all of us she already has a man in her life and that’s Christian Grey from “50 Shades of Grey” and she wishes Sean would rip her clothes off and spank her. Becomes her running theme all through night one. Classy.

Tierra’s hometown video actually has the producer behind the camera telling her that Sean is the “Bachelor” and she starts screaming and freaking out. I think she even tells her dog that she can’t wait to introduce them. Which basically is foreshadowing for why she acts the way she does later in the season. Tierra is VERY excited to find a husband. Almost too excited. And usually, well, that never works on this show.

AshLee Frazier talks about growing up in 6 different foster homes then finally getting taken in by her current family. Tears are shed. A lot.

-As for the limo exits, I wouldn’t say there’s much that stands out. Ashley P whips out a tie Christian Grey style, Jackie puts lipstick on then kisses him on the cheek, who is then immediately followed by Selma who pulls Kleenex out of her awesome cleavage to wipe off Jackie’s kiss (Yeah, that wasn’t pre-planned at all). Robyn does a couple back handsprings out of the limo and falls on her head, Lesley brings a football and has Sean bend over and be the center while she stands behind him and checks out his ass, and Lindsay arrives in a wedding dress. When Tierra exits, she says one sentence to Sean about her half-heart tattoo on her finger and how she’s looking for someone to close it up, and Sean tells her to wait there while he walks away. She thinks she’s getting eliminated, but he comes back with a rose.

-Then after all 25 women have exited, Kacie Boguskie arrives in a limo by herself and Sean is pretty surprised. As explained back in my post on Sept. 26th, Kacie and Sean had met a couple weeks before the show and spent a few days together with other Bachelor/ette alumni. And Sean and Kacie do admit to each other of having met before.

-The three biggest things focused on in the first episode are Ashley P.’s “50 Shades of Grey” obsession, Sarah having one arm, and Lindsay’s wedding dress. When Sarah utters a line like “I sometimes think I’m still single because I don’t have two arms,” then you know America is gonna get behind her and she will be the darling of the episode.

-As for Lindsay, her whole deal the first night is she loves to have fun, but is worried that Sean just doesn’t “get” the wedding dress joke. Which causes her to drink. Definitely a little slurry on the words, and her 1-on-1 time with Sean is, ummmm, a tad awkward. But more awkward in a cute endearing way, and not an annoying attention grabbing drunk like Ashley P is. But yeah, Lindsay even says “I wish I was more sober” right before we see her with Sean. Which is basically the main storyline of the cocktail party into the rose ceremony, that Lindsay is worried Sean won’t give her a rose because he might’ve been scared off by the wedding dress joke. She ends up getting the last rose at the ceremony.

-Catherine barely gets any air time in the first episode. We never see her interact with Sean all night outside of her limo exit.

-The 12 girls who get roses before the rose ceremony are: Tierra (only one to get hers right out of the limo), AshLee, Desiree, Robyn, Selma, Brooke, Catherine, Katie, Jackie, Leslie H., Sarah, and Diana. Which means:

Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Ashley H, Paige Vigil, Lacey Latka, Lauren Marchetti, KeriAnn Miranda, Kelly Dutton, and Ashley Palenkas.

The 19 women remaining after the first episode are:

Tierra LiCausi
Desiree Hartsock
AshLee Frazier
Selma Alameri
Robyn Howard
Catherine Giudici
Jackie Parr
Leslie Hughes
Sarah Herron
Amanda Meyer
Lesley Murphy
Kacie Boguskie
Kristy Kaminski
Daniella McBride
Taryn Daniels
Lindsay Yenter
Diana Willardson
Brooke Burchette
Katie Levans

    I read this comment board before I watched the wedding on ABC. com and I was expecting it to be this semi-romantic event surrounding Emily’s pity party. But honestly I felt like some of those commenting on this board must just really be fixated on her because they gave her the same amount of air time as Jillian and not nearly as much as they gave Trista and her comments about it giving her “hope” was merely ABC’s way of acknowledging her break up with Jef without doing a break up special.
    Did I just miss it or was Ashley Spivey not there? I thought they were best friends.
    I thought the whole wedding was beautiful and romantic and it was really refreshing to see one of these couples actually make it.
    One thing I thought was goofy was how in the sneak peek at Sean’s season they seemed to make a concentrated effort to never really show Catherine’s face, but you could tell it was her in most of the faceless romantic silhouettes.

    @ lucky – THAT’S TRUE! I’d forgotten, he asked Lisa, “do you want to tell them or should I?”..he ended up sharing that info and there were a few dropped jaws. I only watched the 6 votes that Jeff read, and it seemed like a really close vote based on that, so kudo’s to Jil for having the correct DL.

    oyoung, you make a valid point about Emily. I’m sure if she hadn’t been at top of mind recently regarding this show, I wouldn’t have noticed her much or been bothered by her comments.

    I was surprised they didn’t show Ashley Spivey more too. I noticed that she was sitting right next to Ashley at the brunch, but other than that I don’t think they showed her. She was one of the bridesmaids.

    “The Voice”
    So Nicholas did great, Great Balls of Fire, actually, and he did a stellar job but then came Cassadee, she killed it and can I just say one more thing about her…..dress!
    Terry did “Dude Looks Like a Lady” WITH Blake, not exactly Blakes genre but if you can sing, and they both can, I guess it doesn’t matter what you sing. It was completely in Terry’s wheelhouse and he “rocked” it. Oh and did I mention a shirtless Adam Levine accompanied them on guitar? Yum.
    Nicholas then did, “Call On Me”…he’s a soulful singer and this song really suited him. Terry did “Broken Wings”…great song but I was thinking the same thing Adam said, it wasn’t perfect. He came back but something was off, at the start. Cassadee did “Steve McQueen” and I still think she’s the front runner but this wasn’t my favorite from her. Ok how about “mini Ceelo”? How cute was he? Cassadee’s last song was, “Cry” and suspect this girl will be “crying” all the way to the bank. Overall, a very entertaining show.
    @kasey, what do you think? Still Cassadee?

    Eeek did you hear? “Smash” returns in January! Excited.

    Nicholas was AWESOME! I really, really hope he wins. I love Terry as well, though. Ok, I know this is not the popular opinion, but I am not big on Cassadee…she is a little too Avril Levine-like for my taste. BUT, whoever wins is well deserving. Can’t wait for the finale!

    Why people lover spoilers and why your site will live on, Steve – I believe there was an experiment done years ago where people were subtly given spoilers to a tv show or a movie. Most people wound up reporting that they liked the show/movie more when they finally watched it. I think the idea is that people like the predictability somewhat – perhaps similar to the concept of people liking music that they have heard before. Essentially, we might have evolved to appreciate and be engaged by social themes which make sense to us. Spoilers bring that clarity. So spoil away, Steve (but don’t sail away).

    @randais- the beginning of the show was beautiful.. love that song by jeff buckley, and i thought it was done in really good taste.. they did a beautiful tribute with “hallelujah” that felt genuine, and it was just enough, but not too much..
    i felt really bad for terry.. that second song really messed him up.. the beginning was off, and then he just had a hard time keeping it together after that.. nicholas was good, but predictable.. but cassadee was just flawless.. to answer your question, yes! i hope she takes it all.. she really deserves it and has done an outstanding job all season.. i think had terry done better, it would have been a little tighter for the win.. but, overall, i think it will be 3.nicholas, 2.terry, 1.cassadee.. and, yes, her dress was gorgeous!!

    @oyoung- good point, im right there with iheart.. i wouldnt have paid so much attention had she not recently been in the public eye so much.. and, frankly, im just sick of her.. so maybe if it had been a few yrs down the road it wouldnt have bugged me so much, but im just emily’d out- i was probably overly sensitive to her presence.. not sure why ashley spivey wasnt shown more, but she was definitely one of the bridesmaids.

    December 17, 2012 at 10:26 PM

    @maxxi- lol.. there is no popular opinion.. everyone’s taste is different, and youre right, everyone is equally deserving.. in fact, cassadee didnt stick out much to me until she did “i’m with you”.. and then “over you” then “stupid boy” just sealed the deal for me with her.. youre right, she reminds me a lot of avril.. shes done at least 2 of her songs, so i think it’s safe to say cassadee is influenced musically by her.. but i think she has better vocals.. and she has a way of really interpreting the lyrics to every song she sings.. she can sing any genre, and it’s believable.. she gives me chills..

    *** Ash/JP Wedding ***
    I wonder why they felt the need to make up the names John Presser and Tara Durr and include them as people in the Bach “family” that have gotten married?

  12. randais

    December 18, 2012 at 5:39 AM

    @maxi – I’m am not sure what the popular opinion is either, I too really enjoy all of them. They are all so talented. I was pulling more for Terry until fairly recently.

    @kasey – you are so right, the tribute that opened the show was touching and perfectly done. I’m really looking forward to the finale tonight.

    Looks like RS took out the trash :D.

  13. randais

    December 18, 2012 at 5:43 AM

    @josie – excellent observations. I would add, that we like to watch to confirm that the spoilers were either right on or perhaps even that they weren’t. I mean, no one is perfect so we still have an expectation of a possible misprediction, thus we get to say nahnahanah… :D.

    *The Voice*
    @randais and @kasey, you both were so right about the talent level of the final contestants!! I had only seen a few of the episodes this season and have never watched this show regularly but I may need to start now after watching it last night. The opening was beautiful and Jeff Buckley’s version of Hallelujah is one of my all time favorite songs. They did a great job with it. My votes went to Cassadee. Before she belted out that Faith Hill Song at the end, I was struggling with picking between Cassadee and Terry. Then she nailed her final song and so I picked her as my favorite.

    I hope I can watch the second part of the finale tonight!

    when he first left Tierra out front I thought he had to go take a dump

    I find it really interesting (weird) that he winds up choosing someone who he never even had a one on one date with. Not saying I don’t believe the spoilers, but it makes me wonder if maybe he wasn’t really feeling any of the girls and she just won by default. Like he felt like he should pick someone, so he did. I mean, judging by the little we’ve seen so far (plus her weird intro that was posted as a deleted scene) her personality is…meh. Although I’m sure watching it might clear some of this up, I just think its strange.

    I knew right away Catherine was special. Had a feeling she was gonna go very far, if not win. Seemed to me she was totally his type. Check out Sean’s reaction to her when she stepped out of the limo…very different from most…his eyes were “smiling”. I quickly realized it was producers’ ploy not to feature her as much in the first episode. : )

  20. bbalbert

    January 11, 2013 at 8:41 PM

    @picklesmcgee Well he went on a 1-on-1 with her in Canada not to mention the hometown, overnight, and final date, so that’s pretty much the same as the other girls. I do think it’s strange how they get engaged so fast I mean they barely know each other.

    Who are you to even let out this kind of news? Don’t you have anything better to do with your life? I’m glad your ass is getting sued and maybe you’ll find something more efficient to do with your time.

  22. lqcaps12

    February 3, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    Episode 6 & 7 don’t make sense on Sean’s season, on episode 6 RS had put Desiree on both the group date as well as the 1 on 1 date; that makes no sense. And on the 7th episode, how is it that Tierra has the one on one, doesn’t get the rose but still goes to the rose ceremony, again doesn’t make sense. If she didn’t get the rose on the date then she should have gone home then rather than before the rose ceremony…

  23. Kali

    February 4, 2013 at 8:48 PM

    @ jmichelle: I’m confused by your comment. Here you are, on RS’s site, complaining about what he does with his time. Don’t you have anything better to do with your life? Maybe you should find something more efficient to do with your time. Not sure what your commenting here says about you …

  24. Kali

    February 4, 2013 at 8:54 PM

    @ lqcaps12 – check again. On Episode 6 Catherine and Desiree get the 1-on-1 dates; neither is on the group date. And on Episode 7, “Tierra has a meltdown the day of the rose ceremony before it happens, and Sean lets her go.” (Maybe RS made changes to his site after your comments were posted?)

    Thanks for the recaps, I look forward to your spoilers every season! I came here tonight to find out when Tierra gets eliminated so I don’t have to be disappointed every week when she’s still around. Thank goodness she’ll be gone soon. From what RS has posted, and what we’ve already seen, sounds like she has TWO medical emergencies and something like three or four meltdowns before she’s eliminated. I count crashing other girls’ dates and stalking Sean as meltdowns, although I guess Tierra thought they were strategic moves. Every time Sean put up with that I had less and less respect for him. Personally, I think Tierra looks a bit trashy, and I would suspect she is from a lower middle class background if that. Forgive me for being catty. I do not see what Sean sees in her.

    Catherine is really growing on me because she’s so sweet, happy, genuinely into Sean, and low drama. At least so far. I’m glad she’s the one he picks. I just hope the Bachelor curse doesn’t doom them!
