    My Bachelorette Recap: Episode 1

    May 20, 2014 • 10:00 am

    As most of you know, I’ve been in Vegas this past weekend (still here), LOVING life!! It was such a coincidence that Chris Harrison happened to be down here as well for the BBMAS. We got to talking and he got me pretty excited about this season of The Bachelorette!!! From what I hear, this season is going to be a good one!

    The show is finally back on ABC, and it's Andi's turn to take a shot at finding her true love. I’ve decided to share my thoughts on EVERY episode this season every Tuesday morning for all of you!!

    Tonight brought back a lot of memories for me. This was my very first time seeing everyone in the group because I like to avoid spoilers at ALL costs!! I thought Andi looked AMAZING in her dress. It fit her like a glove, and the jewels gave it just the right amount of glam. Did you guys like the dress??? She was extremely nervous to begin with, the but gents helped her loosen up and feel more comfortable later on in the episode.

    First impressions of the men: there were some cocky individuals, well-traveled fellas, TONS of smart, nerdy types (starting to think that may be her type!), and quite a few that actually know how to dress! This group impressed me with their sharp suits & ties. Overall, this group looks promising!

    There were sweet moments in this episode, and far too many cheesy ones. Bringing a stolen floor lamp to gift to a woman you want to impress is NOT a good idea! And the limo pusher…I’m getting bad vibes from that one! He seems to be the black sheep out of the group…but maybe it’s just his v-neck-suit combo :)

    I definitely liked Tasos’ lock and wish introduction – it was a nice touch to bring a worldly tradition right to the mansion. There were a few unique gifts that the contestants brought to the mansion, including pants, cookies and homemade meals...(why didn’t I get that treatment??) 

    Andi chose Nick V. to give the first impression rose to. Maybe it was the polka dot tie that gave her a lasting impression, but I didn't really feel that he stood out! It could just be the way the episode was edited, but Nick didn't seem very funny or interesting to me...and you know I need my humour!!!

    Overall, this group of guys seem really sweet, but the previews for the rest of the season make them seem VERY dramatic…but the drama is fun to watch, so bring it on!!!

    I’m very excited to see how Andi’s story will unfold. She is such a strong, serious, independent woman, so it will be interesting to see how she will open up and let these gents into her heart. Do you have any predictions??? What did you think of the first episode?

    Until next week…

    Pretty good group, so far....I agree with you Jillian she may like the nerdy type...lol I have an early prediction that she will end up with Josh M....IF she ends up with anyone...did you see those clips from the season...not sure what she's about to go thru but I hope it ends well because she is cool....RIP Eric
