-This whole talk with Nate was a complete waste of time. It was essentially hyped ever since her hometown date with Sean, and everyone expected the guy to come on the show go scorched earth on everyone, and he pretty much did the opposite. The funny thing about all this is, after Sean eliminated Desiree and she did her conference call with the media, and everyone asked about her reaction to what her brother did, Desiree pretty much dismissed the guy and said she’d seen her brother once in the last year, and that they weren’t even very close. Her exact quote was:
“…He does have a different perspective and he is very intense with the way he thinks. It is completely far off from the way I think, and you know, I’m not very close with my brother. I’ve been away from home since I was 18, so you know, I see them maybe once a year. So, I think that’s also where there’s a disconnect from what was shown and really what our lives are like as a family…I did not agree one bit with what my brother told Sean — not at all, not for one second. And you know, my brother’s opinion would never influence my decision for any reason. I love my brother and I do value his opinion, but that would never steer me one way or the other.”
So there you go. If she just admitted a few months ago her brother would never influence her opinion, what’s the point of having him on? It was kinda like bringing on Jackie, Lesley, and Catherine last week. What strong advice could they really given her if they know nothing about the guys, just like Nate didn’t. A whole bunch of hot air pretty much. Not to mention, Nate left during the daytime. The guys didn’t arrive for the rose ceremony until night. If you look at the shot of Nate standing behind the wall, he wasn’t even spying on Chris walking the guys in. It was shot at a completely different time. Yet the promos led you to believe he was gonna come out from behind the wall and start shanking people. Not quite. Horrible editing.
-In her sitdown with Chris, Des reiterates again to all of America how much she’s in love with Brooks and, even though he still hasn’t told her he loved her (the only one who hasn’t), by golly, she’s just waiting for his approval and essentially expects a proposal at the end. From Brooks. I will say this: This is one bizarre season. We’ve never really seen this from the lead in the history of the show. Telling us who they’re in love with weeks before the finale, essentially admitting that’s who they hope proposes to them, and would gladly accept. Sure, we’ve had people in the past who probably knew who they wanted to be with in the end, but at least they put on a poker face and made you think they were still undecided. Nope. Not Des. Brooks is the one she wants, she’s waiting for Brooks to come around on her, and the hell with everybody else. Totally bizarre. If you’re Chris or Drew at this point, would you even WANT to be with this girl? Obviously at the time they didn’t know she was saying this, but watching it now they must like, “Well hot damn. Thanks for letting me know.” Truly a different ending and something we’ve never seen before and it can’t end soon enough.
-Rose ceremony time. Des: “Honestly has been an incredible week…honored to meet your families…open arms and open hearts…makes this decision that much harder…Zak, don’t ever put that goofy penguin costume on again. Pure torture.”
Brooks: He didn’t say anything last night to make it seem like he was struggling with his feelings. Why all the sudden are they going to arise in Antigua? Must’ve been forced on him. I can already tell I’m gonna hard time believing any BS story they give us in Antigua of anything that goes down.
Chris: Second is the first loser.
“Desiree, gentleman, it’s the final rose tonight. When you’re ready. Last week, because Drew already had a rose, there were three you had to give out. After you gave out your first two, I didn’t come barging in playing the math game. But with the same exact number of roses to give out this week, I did. There’s no rhyme or reason to my madness. I am Chris F***ing Harrison and I do what I damn well please.”
Drew: How much will he smother her over there? If he’s telling her loves her under a heat lamp in his driveway, imagine what he’s gonna say in Antigua?
Zak isn’t too thrilled about being let go. He doesn’t want to go back to the life he had, whatever that means. Judging by his Twitter feed, looks like that’s exactly what he did and he seems happy with it. So I’m not sure exactly where he was going with that. Although the best part of his exit had to be him telling the limo driver to pull over so he could chuck that cubic zirconia out the window. Well there you go. Pretty much confirmed that ring was a piece of sh** in the first place, and the store owner in Atlantic City must be feeling great about herself today.
