Here we are. Week one! We haven’t met the girls and Juan Pablo has already been jogging twice. And Sean’s here with really good advice: ‘If you kiss one of the girls, don’t let the other girls see!’ Smooth Sean, very smooth!
We get another sneak peek at the women before JP meets them, and off the bat Nikki is my favorite. I haven’t been this excited about a contestant since Emily Maynard. It certainly helps that she’s a pediatric nurse, and in her vignette she works with a little girl with down-syndrome. If you learn nothing else about me in this little trip we’re about to take, it’ll be this, I have a very, VERY special place in my heart for special needs kids. I adore them! But it’s not about me so onto the ladies…
(side note: I will likely be watching with my mom a lot, so I’ll share mom’s thoughts along the way, as well.)
Here. We. Go!! We’re about to meet the top
25 27!! I’m adding pictures to help us all out with the names and faces.
Next car is pulling up, OH MY GOD!!!
Fake preggers before commercial break, I’m already turned off.
The final car is pulling up, OH MY GOD!!! (So much screaming goes on when these girls pull up.)
You probably watched the first episode, so I won’t bore you with a recap, I’ll just give you some highlights of things that got said over here:
One Bachelorette said: “It’s the aggressive girls who get the attention.” Yeah, there are 27 of you, and one of him! Grow a back bone Ladies! #YOLO. Tonight is not the night to make friends. (Looking at you Lauren H.)
Lauren H finally gets her moment and she blabs about her ex. Just Stop! Don’t lead with the former relationship, it’s always a fail. My brother just said ‘You’re blowing it right now chick! You already lost him. His face says stop talking.’
Sophisticated Sharleen, he likes her elegance. Juan Pablo called her a keeper, and she’s getting the first impression rose. I’m not sure that she likes him, but we’ll see where that goes.
And the fun part… who gets the roses?
1. Sophisticated Sharleen
3. Nikki the Nurse
5. ADA Andi
6. Nanny Alli
8. Lauren S.
9. Kelly and MOLLY!!! Molly’s really getting the rose here!
13. Kat – not Kylie. Awkward!!!
16. Lucy the Lovechild
17. Elise ‘Oh My God!’
Ladies, Juan Pablo it’s the final rose tonight. (DUH!)
18. Amy L.
So we lose Lauren H., Lacey, Amy J., Kylie, Alexis, Ashley, Valerie, Maggie, and Christine. I’ll miss Maggie, but I’ll survive.
Fun fact that I learned tonight: It was really nice to know Sean doesn’t really always look like a Greek God, carved from stone! He and Catherine are clearly not jogging as much as he did when he was on the show. Enjoy your life, big boy!
(I apologize for the tardiness of this post! I’ve had some issues with the site, but I think I’ve got them all worked out now!)
