The Bachelorette 9 - Desiree

The Bachelorette Desiree Recap Including Videos & Which Guy Has Already “Won” on a Dating Show?

-The cocktail party begins and if you thought “This is my Cinderella story…I didn’t come from much…I lived in tents…I never had a lot of nice things” will get old, Desiree drops this on the guy’s immediately: “I’ve been in the same position…the best advice I can give you is to be yourself.” Good lord. How many times in the last 2 weeks since Desiree has started her pre-show interviews has she given the “I’ve been in the same position” line? 100? 500? Yes, we know. We watched you last season. And not just to harp on Desiree, because EVERY lead says this EVERY season. Like it’s supposed to be some sort of comforting line to ease the tension. Yes, the audience is aware, and the guys are aware that you’ve been in that position before. And when you were in that position before, you were completely devastated when Sean sent you home, you wouldn’t let go of your hug, and were telling him he made the biggest mistake of his life, which we obviously know isn’t true. I say she just is honest with them from the get go. “Guys, since you are in this isolated bubble, you will begin to have feelings for me that aren’t really genuine, but it’s just because you have no other girls to look at for the next month, so of course I’ll become the object of your affection. And when producers are force feeding you to say things in your ITM’s like, ‘I could see her as my wife,’ ‘Desiree is the most amazing woman I’ve ever met,’ and ‘I could see a future with this woman,’ you’ll actually start to believe it. Then once you’re eliminated, you’ll be like, ‘Why the hell did I say all that stuff when I totally didn’t mean it, just like I did with Sean. Enjoy the journey.” Yes. I think every lead should say that verbatim at the beginning of the first cocktail party.

-Nick Copperfield stands up first in front of the room to tell everyone he has a magic trick. Although it’s not a magic trick, it’s a horrible joke that has him saying he’s gonna make Des disappear for 5 minutes. Tomatoes are thrown at him. At least they should’ve been. You know how much Des was impressed that Nick does magic? One of the first questions out of her mouth: “Are you a magician full time?” Nick: “No honey. That’s just night’s and weekends. During the day I’m, wait for it…wait for it…a tailor! How you like dem’ apples?” Needless to say, I think Des was thrown for a loop with that answer. I mean, if casting can’t pull something better than a tailor/magician, this could be a long ass season. Oh right, Des lived in tents and never had any nice things, so it doesn’t matter what Nick does. Sure it doesn’t. Can’t imagine why he didn’t last more than a night. Maybe Des is afraid of magic? Maybe Des doesn’t care for tailors? Or maybe Des doesn’t want her future husband to be gone every weekend at kids’ parties doing slight-of-hand card tricks.

-Brandon has an interesting story. He used his mom’s 7 year sober coin to determine whether he wanted to come on this show after flipping it. And skipped his birthday. Hey, I’ve never been a big birthday guy and even I wouldn’t do something so ridiculous. I think this year is the first time in about 5 years I’m gonna do anything remotely interesting for my birthday that doesn’t involve a BBQ with friends. Gonna go see one of my favorite stand up comedians, Jay Mohr, on Saturday night with a group of friends. Yes, that’s considered a rager for my birthday. Beat that, Brandon. Anyway, he gives Des his mom’s 7 year sober coin and wants her to give it back to her once he gets a hometown date. Ooooohhhhh so close. He only missed getting one of those by 5 episodes. So did Des mail it back? Did she lose it in her purse? Did she chuck it in the fountain once she eliminated him? You know how some of you ask for “Where are they now” updates on some of the contestants? I’d like a “Where is Brandon’s mom’s 7 year sober coin at this moment” update. Pronto.

-Ben gets his alone time with Des (minus Brody who’s chillin in a limo with grandma suckin’ down some AJ), and tells her he’s never been married. “It’s like two friends that have a kid together. We’re honestly best friends. He’s got a great mother.” Well, it’s certainly something that Ben has over Brad, no doubt. Ben and Des are hitting off about as well as Jonathan and Des didn’t hit it off. Both like the outdoors, including hunting, fishing, camping, road trips, etc. You could see where this conversation was gonna lead. I wanted to see them show off their camping skills and start a fire with two sticks and Drew’s hair grease. But no, she had to get up to go fetch a first impression rose for Ben, which he gladly accepted. Was it fair he got to use his cute kid to make an impression on Desiree? Of course not. But it worked, so I guess screw everyone else, including the 3 other single dads that were on the show who didn’t get to bring their kids. But as Ben says, “All’s fair in love and war.” Ben has a rose and none of the other single dads (Dr. Larry, Juan Pablo, and Brad) don’t.

-The weirdness kinda starts after that as we get quick glimpses of guys trying to impress Desiree. Brad starts having a seizure in front of her. Some might call it dancing. No. It was a seizure. I hope medics attended to him quickly before he started swallowing his own tongue. Brian named a star after Desiree, calling it “Desirion.” Probably close to the planet he emerged from with that Cro-Magnon forehead of his. Zak then does what’s been known in season’s past to be the kiss of death, and strips down to jump in the pool. It’s safe to say Zak doesn’t like wearing much clothing. Obviously he’s put together and in shape, but my guess is, middle America will see it as arrogance. However, for stripping down to his boxer briefs and jumping into the pool, Des gives him a rose. Although, did you see when she gave it to him? She was about to walk past him, and then was like, “You know what? Here, you get one for going in the water.” Maybe she initially didn’t want to. Maybe she did. But she definitely had already taken at least one step past him before she realized to give him a rose. Des likes nudity.

-Bryden is up next and makes sure he tells Des that his dog is one of his best friends. But he also has lived overseas, he’s still in the Army, and has awful hair. I think he realizes how much his hair sucks, so the only way to make up for it is to tell a story about how he befriended a kid from Iraq when he was deployed overseas, and immediately this got Desiree all squishy inside, so she went and gave him a rose. Never fails. When you’re having trouble communicating with a woman, or you feel conversation is slowing, or maybe you’re losing her interest, it’s best to go to the “I-befriended-a-little-boy-in-Iraq-who-taught-me-so-much-about-life” card. It’s a game saver. Oh hey, was anyone aware that I was a Big Brother for 3 years to an underprivileged 6th grade African American kid back in 2003? Just thought I’d throw that out there.

-JuPAAHHblo is a former professional soccer player. So naturally he takes Des outside to teach her how to dribble. And bounce the ball off her knee. You know, I don’t want to accuse JuaPAAHHblo of stealing anyone’s game, but I’m sorry. I just have to. Watching that scene last night and tell me if it’s not eerily similar to one of the greatest flirting/soccer scenes from my generation. Or any generation for that matter.

I’m sorry, but JuaPAAHHblo needs to be paying Ralph Macchio royalties today. Don’t even get me started on the game that Daniel LaRusso had. If that skinny dork could pull Elisabeth Shue by getting his ass kicked in front of her and then taking her to Golf N’ Stuff, then he’s got some serious pull with the ladies. I love how p***y whipped Daniel was already from a California girl talking to him that she basically says, “Here, go fetch as I kick this ball into the ocean,” and he doesn’t bat an eye to go get it. One of these days, maybe I’ll do a dissertation on the “Karate Kid” and how that movie shaped my middle school days.

-Drew gets his time with Des’ and asks, “When do the butterflies go away? I kinda don’t want them to.” Barf. Why do I get the feeling that at some point this season Drew will break into song in front of Des with, “Why…do…birds, suddenly appear…every time…you are near? Just like me, they long to be…close to you.” You know, like Rick Moranis did in “Parenthood?”

One of the all-time underrated movies. I’m 100% convinced that after night one, Drew would jump in front of an oncoming bus if it meant saving Des’ life. He’s seems a liiiiiiiiiiitle too eager already. But his eagerness got him a rose.

-Dr. Larry sits Desiree down and taunts her with a piece of candy to come back to his white van waiting outside. Kidding. Sort of. I think. No, he just apologizes 87 times for not being able to dip a woman without tearing her dress. Apologize once? Absolutely. Continuing to apologize while drunk, constantly taking your glasses on and off, and gazing at Des like she’s a piece of meat? Ummmmm, not your best effort Mr. Doctor. After his elimination, he was acting as if he was Fred Astaire and how could anyone possibly resist his dance moves? Huh? You are no Derek Hough or Mark Ballas my friend. I say you go back to the office and apologize to your co-workers for embarrassing yourself on national TV. And trade in your Clark Kent frames for a new pair before Lois dumps you. “Man of Steel” only 2 weeks away. Very excited.

-That brings us to Jonathan. Look, I’m not naïve enough to think that Jonathan chased Desiree around the mansion last night drunk off his ass wanting to get in her pants without a little poking and prodding from the producers. Of course they were egging him on to do that. However, that doesn’t change the fact he still did it and showed himself to be one of the biggest first night ass clowns this show has ever seen. To steal a bit from “Saturday Night Live,” we’ll now play “Really?” with Reality Steve.

-Really Jonathan? Really? You thought it’d be a good idea to go on national TV and try to bed down a woman with 24 other guys in the mansion and cameras following you everywhere? Really?
-Really? Lets just say she did say, “You know what, I’m down Jonathan. Lets sneak into this room for a quickie.” Do you really think that the other guys wouldn’t have noticed, and maybe production would’ve basically had to shut down on filming if the lead became a slut on the first night? Really?
-Really Jonathan? In what alternate reality would you have to be living in to think that your behavior that night was remotely acceptable? Does this happen in your every day life? Do you usually prepare beds and light candles for all your first dates in hopes that you can somehow get them naked by the end of the night? Really?
-Really? The worst part about it Jonathan is that YOU were the drunk one, not Desiree. If this had any remote chance of working, wouldn’t you have to be the one in control with her as the sloppy drunk asking you to take her to Pleasuretown? Really?
-Really? I don’t know why you felt the need to tell us your love tank hasn’t been depleted for years, nor do I really care to, but isn’t that MORE of a sign you probably shouldn’t have taken that approach? I tend to look at that as you were basically admitting, “I haven’t been laid in a while, I’m drinking, she’s the only girl in the house, I think I’ll try and nail her.” That was your approach? Really?

-Rose ceremony time. Ben, Zak, Bryden, Drew, Michael, and Nick M. (did they actually show her giving Nick an early rose last night? I certainly don’t remember it) all have roses. Des’ first speech of the season basically rivals everything she’s said in all her pre-season interviews. She sticks with generic, toe-the-company-line sentences. “Thank you for being here…meant a lot you open up and share your life with me…I’m looking for someone who can communicate and be open…you exceeded all my expectations…well, except for that douchestick that practically tried to rape me on television. Yeah, could’ve done without him.”

Brandon: Nickname: Billy Bad Ass.
Zack K.: Zero air time other seeing him in his bow tie and Chuck’s.
Will: He’s so exciteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed to be heeeeeeeeeeeeeere!
Brooks: I’m fascinated by his chompers.
JuaPAAHHblo: It’s almost like he’s a cartoon of himself.
Brad: I hope he didn’t injure himself dancing. Or suffer long term damage to his central nervous system. That looked like it hurt.
Kasey: #hashtag, #hashtag, #hashtag, #thisbetterstop
James: Zero air time as well.
Robert: The sign I’m reading says you’ll be out the door next week.
Brian: Only 2 more episodes away until his giant flameout.
Dan: I think he was let go early enough so he could go film the next 2 seasons of “Survivor.”
Chris: “Lets hide the guy that finished 2nd so no one will suspect it’s him except for, you know, the hundreds of thousands of people who’ve read the spoilers already.”

“Desiree, gentlemen, it’s the final rose tonight. When you’re ready. This season I will now be sexting with my hot cougar piece during my off time to make the Biebs mom jealous.”

Mikey: “Hey yo, who ordered the pizza here?” (Spoken in a thick Italian accent). Yes, I know Mikey is from Chicago but he looks like he should be flipping dough into the air at Rays Pizza.

Zzzzzzzzzzzhhhhhhh-oh-go is pretty heartbroken he didn’t get a rose. “I’m completely lost…I don’t know what to do…I have an explosion of love and feelings.” Jonathan’s love tank feels the same way. I think you two should get together and swap stories about all the explosions you guys can have in the future. Hey, just go on the secret Bachelor FB group and start whoreing yourselves out to others on there. I’m sure someone will take the bait. Who wouldn’t want to sleep with Robocop 2013 and a guy who made sexual predators around the world re-think their profession.

    Thanks Steve for my afternoon laugh! Still laughing at zzzzzzaaahhh go (or whatever he is)! What a bunch of nerds and Steve certainly described them to a T!

    Poor Des…no way will she stay with Brooks. And yes his teeth are the reason he speaks so poorly. Or his chompers as Steve said. He needs to cut that mop of grease…take a cue from Benjie and his mop.

    I’m hoping some of the men (or boys in some instances) develop personalities cause they are snooze worthy at this point.

    Oh how I’ve missed the bachelor lunacy. My favorite quote of the night sums it up well: “I don’t even know her that well but I know what I feel is real . . . And I think I just met my future wife.”

    Does anyone else think that Chris looks like Buster from Arrested Development?

    Does anyone else think that Brooks looks like Blake Shelton? It bugged me the whole time until I finally figured out who it was he reminded me of.

    Ok whew does Ms. Cindrelli Dessi have a handful of man meat rack this season! I have a feeling she’s not going to end up with a dude that everybody finds hot. Because since she’s hot and an LA girl she’s SO used to the mega hot dudes that hit on her and its basically “all cake and no ice cream” these dudes are going to try every trick of the trade, but a hot LA girl can Windex away all the douche these burly men are going to pile on!

    – Drew is by far the best impression and besides looks his dependent introspective personality DESSi will dig alot!

    – that black guy he’s a character and looks better when he’s sweaty half naked doing yoga. He is too much for her. Dessi doesn’t want a pitbull extrovert flamboyant man, she’s used to show offs in LA, so Next!

    – magician man would make a great friend.

    – Kasey is a #creeper

    – Mikey me likey likey! Damn that’s a man! Wonder how tall he is because Dessi didn’t have to look all the way up to see him. Shorty? Giant ?

    – Jonathan, a lawyer! Haha tried to get a booty call at hello.

    – Zak is hilarious and you gotta understand he’s from B.F.E!! Mico Texas! Where is that! His balcony explained it. He’s a stallion living in the woods.

    – James is creepy and probably got inspired being in the show by being rejected from eharmony

    – whew the ABC H.R. Department had a field day in casting. Fat men, black men, and another ethnic guy that cussed.

    – once the knight took off his mighty mask, he needed to take a mighty walk back to Lake Tahoe where he came from.. DOWN BY THE RIVER!! (miss ya chris Farley)

    – Chris is as boring as his name & personality

    -Mike looks like a Sims character. Who wears their white dentist coat at Dessi’s first meet.

    – Brandon must be a “chosen character” for the show as well as Micah and his “custom” outfit. On a motorcycle at the meeting ceremony?

    – has Nick watched the show? His poem was NOT a new move. #cliche

    – Dan looks perfect. No personality showing at Dessi’s first meet. Those kind of contestants don’t last too long. But Catherine had a Normal first meeting with Sean last season…

    -why in the HELL did Ben bring his kid!!! Only girls like Emily Maynard would enjoy that first meeting. Then sending the kid off to the limo after showing him off? #DoucheDad

    I always get a kick out of white guys with no rhythm dancing to hip hop music. I must say they look like they were living their inner Vanilla Ice in that one.

    I think Dessi is going to fall for the wrong guys this season. Drew has alot of potential to be the one for her but alot of the men that have chemistry with her the most have higher voices than her. Didn’t she want a man? Juan Paolo will dump her like a hot tamale. Mikey is crossed eyed right? Brandon cares too much about himself he’s not ready to love because that involves sharing and he’s selfish. Brooks seems a tad bi curious. Robert I think may be too familiar ground for her because they are both from LA. Michael G seems good but he was already on Holidate which is a show I avoided on purpose. Cliche Cliche Michael G. He had somewhat potential but I just don’t see it lasting. Alot of these guys are good looking but we don’t have a Bentley this season which is a major fail! Ashley and Emily had the douchiest TVtastic dudes in batch history. Still remembering Emily telling Kelon to “Get the f*** out” after calling her baggage haha Classic!

    This was a pretty boring first episode and Des is a nice girl with a total snoozer of a personality.

    Assuming the average car that she drove up in is not hers — that whole concept was offensive to me. They’ve never had someone drive up to the mansion in their own car and clearly did that to highlight the “poor Des” story. Des needs to let go of that sad story or she will be the new AshLee “I’m damaged from being abandoned and adopted.”

    I like Chris so far. Many of these guys are quite femme.

    May 28, 2013 at 3:42 PM

    ccrider- ewwwww, no, I do not see the Brooks and Blake Shelton resemblence at all!! Unless you’re saying that they look alike but that Blake is a million times hotter, in my opinion, comparing their looks is an insult to Blake. lol (I do have a couple of friends that think that Brooks is hot- I just don’t see it, not from what I’ve seen so far anyway. Last night his hair looked gross to me)

    What are everyone’s thoughts on Des’ new hairstyle. I’m kinda thinking she looks better in the bangs. Not sure yet, haven’t had time to process.

  11. randais

    May 28, 2013 at 6:01 PM

    Iheart – (reply to your question from the previous post) Nashville…I wish I knew, my impulse answer would be that she said yes but I could also see her playing the “woe is me and I don’t trust you still” card. I want to like her, but I’ve never been the biggest fan of sad, pitiful characters. I just want her to figure out who she is and “grow a pair” (excuse the terminology).

  12. elizabeth82

    May 28, 2013 at 7:25 PM

    Interesting to see these guys in action since we only had their pictures to go by for quite awhile. For instance, I had thought Larry looked kind of cute/promising but oh my, now I definitely see why she cut him. He harped on the dipping her not going well but his one-on-one time was a trainwreck. How drunk (or something) was he to keep taking off and putting on his glasses? Really weird. Drew lived up to what I thought from just the photo: seems gay to me. With that in mind, I thought it was funny how fixated he was on how gorgeous he thought her dress was during their one on one time.

    From what little we saw of him, I like Chris. I thought he was funny with the tying his shoe bit. And he seems normal and like he was just being himself, unlike so many of these guys.

  13. kasey31

    May 28, 2013 at 8:25 PM

    awww haha, poor des : ( she sure has a strange bunch to choose from! i honestly have never seen a group of guys this weird for the bachelorette… ever!

    chris sticks out like a sore thumb bc hes the only normal guy on the show.. i seriously question the sexual orientation of drew, zak reminds me of the annoying class clown that thinks he’s funny but is just loud and obnoxious, and brooks.. oh, brooks.. this season is a joke, right? i think we are all being punked.. lol..

    great recap, steve! i MUST read these recaps when im alone from now on… i look like a crazy woman staring at my phone bursting out laughing every 5 seconds… “brad starts having a seizure infront of her. some might call it dancing. no. it was a seizure.” hahahaha…. this season is going to be goooood..

  14. kasey31

    May 28, 2013 at 8:37 PM

    karyn, in response to your comment on the last page.. i think i know what it is.. i truly believe that des is uncomfortable as the bachelorette, and it is crystal clear watching her.. it makes the viewers feel uncomfortable.. sure, she was likeable on the bachelor, but she wasn’t the lead, so she was able to play off of the other girls.. as the bachelorette, shes front and center.. and i just don’t think she has that certain quality that makes everyone pull for her.. theres something in her personality that kind of turns some people off, i think.. i don’t think she does it on purpose, but even when she was on jkl, she came across as a little cold and stiff.. jimmy kimmel was hilarious, and i don’t think she “got” his humor or personality.. she almost seems too nervous, and maybe a little too self conscious..?

  15. elizabeth82

    May 28, 2013 at 8:57 PM

    @kasey31: Glad to hear someone agrees with me about Drew’s sexual orientation . . . and that Chris is the normal one in this group . . .

    What was it about Brooks that had you shaking your head? His appearance? All we really saw of him was his nervous limo exit where he forgot to introduce himself and then him being pissy that he talked to Des before Ben yet Ben got a rose and he didn’t.

  16. elizabeth82

    May 28, 2013 at 9:00 PM

    I will say that I was disappointed, from what little we’ve seen, that Brooks doesn’t have a stronger energy–i.e., doesn’t seem that mature plus he seems kind of effeminate in the way he talks/looks. Not gay, though–that would be Drew.

  17. kasey31

    May 28, 2013 at 10:33 PM

    elizabeth, i think what bothered me about him are just the few things that u just mentioned.. it just seemed like a silly reason to be upset about on the very first night.. he came across as a little immature to me, and i didn’t see anything in his personality that i found to be attractive.. maybe i had a preconceived expectation of brooks, im not sure.. i was just hoping for a little more assertiveness from him maybe.. but whatever it was, i just wasn’t impressed at all night one, and that says a lot… typically i start off generally liking people, and it decreases as the show goes on.. but who knows? maybe i’ll end up liking him.. i know i will never like zak though.. and drew, haha.. yes!! i’m glad i’m not the only one who got that impression! kind of surprised that steve didn’t pick up that vibe..

    A couple of months ago my 10 year old son who constantly accurately mocks the bachelor and bachelorette wrote a hilarious speech for school on reality tv. He said “what’s next toddler bachelorette? I think that should be created” as he went on to explain what they would say and do. HILARIOUS!! Intelligent Sarcasm at its finest 🙂

    Wish I could say this was a great, exciting, first episode, but I thought most of it was a yawnfest. Hope it gets more interesting as time goes on. I hated the guy with no shirt – that kind of stunt always makes me believe that the guy will be more in love with himself than anyone else. But, something else DID happen that surprised the crap out of me in the first episode – I didn’t think I could ever hate the looks of a Bentley until I saw Desi’s robin egg on wheels. Thats all I’ve got to say about that. I was not a big fan of Desi last season, so I guess it’s obvious my sarcasm bleeds through to this one. Oh well! I thought Brooks was decent looking enough, but then he opened his funny shaped mouth and it kind of ruined the moment. I honestly don’t think Desi has that great of a group of men to pick from. *sigh*

  20. ccrider

    May 29, 2013 at 5:57 AM

    iheart….Blake is most definitely much, MUCH hotter than Brooks in a more manly way. I just see a resemblance in their looks….but Brooks looks have a more femme appearance. I don’t think Brooks is hot but I do find him attractive. To each his own! 🙂

  21. karynr

    May 29, 2013 at 9:05 AM

    I think you hit the nail on the head, kasey. She was very uptight and somewhat uncomfortable, but I’d probably be the same way in the spotlight. Hopefully, she’ll loosen up. The more comfortable she is, the more open the men will be with her. I’ve spent a good part of my career interviewing people, and if you don’t make them feel comfortable, you can’t get them to open up.

    I got an email from an ex-boss last week who knows Drew, or his brother, or someone in his family here in Scottsdale. The email said Drew is a really nice guy. She knew I watched the show and wanted to let me know he’s a good guy.

    I don’t see any similarities between Blake and Brooks. Blake is adorable. That word doesn’t come to mind after seeing Brooks! Maybe my opinion will change, or maybe he just needs to wash his hair or not use so much gel. It looks greasy. I agree with you ccrider, as Blake is so much more manly!

  22. iheartvino

    May 29, 2013 at 9:25 AM

    Kasey and Karyn, I think you’re right about Des just being uncomfortable when she’s speaking to the camera or to a group of the guys. Whenever Des was talking to the camera in her ITMs, she annoyed the hell out of me. But when she was having her one on one talks with the guys, she seemed much more comfortable and didn’t seem uptight or fake.

    I was surprised Steve didn’t comment on the beginning part when Des was looking at the view from the pool area at her house and actually asked Chris Harrison if “that was the ocean down there.” Ummm yes Des, that would be the ocean. You’re in Malibu.

    I also agree with those that have mentioned Drew gives off a gay vibe. I guess Des didn’t pick up on it, or maybe she did and kept him around a long time bc she knew from early on she was choosing Brooks. Who knows. Once we knew Zack (NOT Zak- weirdo!) was out, Chris was my favorite based on the pics and he’s my favorite after episode one. He definitely comes across as the most normal of the guys. Looking forward to seeing more of him throughout the season.

    Randais- re: Nashville, you’re right- Scarlett definitely does need to “grow a pair!” =)

    May 29, 2013 at 10:13 AM

    @kasey31: Re. Steve not picking up gay vibe from Drew: I was kind of surprised, too, but then realized he sort of did pick it up: From his last (episode-by-episode spoilers) column: “Drew kinda has a Jake Pavelka vibe to him, minus the phoniness. I think he’s sincere, but kinda quiet, reserved, and ummmm, a tad effeminate.” Touche; I always thought Jake was gay but it’s his phoniness beyond that that made him so unappealing to me (I boycotted his season because he rubbed me the wrong way on Jillian’s).

  24. kasey31

    May 29, 2013 at 7:53 PM

    karyn, yes exactly.. i think being comfortable in your own skin applies to life in general and how it affects people around u.. even though shes in the spotlight, she should feel like she does deserve to be the bachelorette! i think that’s what made the others so likeable, they just went with the flow and didn’t overthink things or take themselves too seriously., i truly think those types of people are easier to be around, and in this situation, easier to watch… looking back on it, she’s always seemed a bit uncomfortable when the focus is solely on her.. remember her reaction to the dumb museum prank last season? anyway, hopefully she’ll open up more throughout the season..

    iheart, the “is that the ocean?” comment was priceless!!

    Is it just me, or are a lot of guys in their 20s starting to give off a gay vibe? I don’t think it’s this show, and it’s not just the metrosexuals. From skinny jeans to a lot of other styles, it just looks like a lot of guys are trying (maybe sub consciously) to look more effiminate…. and it looks like girls are going for it and not thinking twice. It’s a strange world for sure! In my day, we might have dressed dorky by today’s standards, but mainly because guys didn’t give a rip what they wore. Jeans or shorts and a T Shirt or Flannel shirt was pretty standard…. and definitely no thought to color coordination (as my wife pointed out when we first started dating 🙂 Only the gays put any thought into what they wore, so they stood out quite a bit. It’s a lot harder to tell who’s gay and who’s not these days.
