I haven't been blogging the Bachelorette this season because it just got to be too much for me in seasons past. But when Aubrey and I decided to watch last night's episode together I figured I might as well throw one up there for fun! Confession, I only watched the first episode and last night, so I missed two weeks in there and it was hard to follow. I need to go back and watch the other two episodes if I'm going to continue on.
Rub a dub dub, six boys in a tub.
EIGHT YEAR RELATIONSHIP??? When did you start dating? When you were TWELVE?
Dylan wants to be wearing a shirt that says "Ask me about my brother's funeral"
Andi says "Not bad." And I say, "Not good either."
Dylan starts to share his story after Andi beat it out of him. She doesn't look interested, she looks like she's questioning him on trial.
Sitting across from each other doesn't really lend itself to heart felt conversation. They might as well be on opposite sides of a banquette table.
Dylan has been through so much. I don't understand why people who are so broken think it's a good idea to come on this show.
Andi says she tried to keep it together in front of him, but it comes off as unfeeling. If you're going to date someone, you should feel comfortable expressing your feelings.
Let's go with the usual formula. 1 guy + 10 girls (or vise versa in this case) + any sporting event + winners stay, losers go home.
How come one team has real jerseys and the other team had to write their own numbers on? Did the budget run out?
Funny how excited Patrick was for a five on one date. Perspective I guess.
The Rosebuds win and the Five of Hearts mope around the stadium in a montage of sad music.
Josh goes on a little rant about losing. Suuuuuper attractive.
Eric is my favorite and it makes me sad to know he's not around anymore.
In all the seasons of this show I've seen, they've never talked about the Mormon religion. When contestants have been former members of the church they've usually skirted this issue or used words other than LDS vocabulary. I wonder if they're editing it differently because he's passed away.
Look, my husband rocks a goatee, but some people just can't with out looking like a creeper. Marcus is one of those people.
M: Can we kiss in front of them?
Good call girl, good call.
Andi: Is there a single bad thing about Marcus?
Me: YES! That goatee!!
Cocktail Party/Rose Ceremony
THAT DRESS. Yes.
Stealing Andi from the guy who hasn't had any time, when you already have a rose. . . NOT COOL.
Andi and Eric's fight is incredibly uncomfortable considering the outcome of Eric's life.
Now we sit down and discuss Andi's feelings about Eric's passing. And this rubs me the wrong way because I'm sure A LOT of other people are more affected by it than Andi is. She only knew him for such a short time. But it IS good that they didn't just leave it as is. So. . . mixed feelings.
Tonight's episode was kind of heavy, don't you think? Let's go check out what Aubrey had to say about it!
