Is it just me or is this Bachelor season off to a boring start? I know it’s hard to determine or have much of an opinion still … but those first dates were boring in my opinion!!! To be honest, thinking back… it always takes a few episodes to get hooked. So I will wait….For now, my thoughts on episode two! … There was the classic fight and girl talk over not getting enough alone time with Ben. And truthfully it is hard!!! I can speak from experience that by THIS time in the game (very early) you are HEAVILY invested in this guy. You’ve already spent weeks preparing for the “trip” you’ve spoken to a producer about 30 times about “BEN” and how he is “TOTALLY PERFECT FOR YOU … AND ONLY YOU”. You are just foaming at the mouth like a rabid boar waiting to get your hands on YOUR husband and here are all these other broads taking up all of your time!! LOL it’s true… it’s how it feels. For me, I am not that competitive so I remember when I was on the show, I waited patiently for my turn and then just maxed out that time to the best of my ability … but there were a few of ’those’ girls like Lace on my season too … they are a staple of the show!!
On to the first dates … boring! Can you really determine someone’s chemistry based on whether or not you like the way that they smell? Hahah maybe you can? Mine and Justin’s first few dates were campfires, whiskey and catching frogs and he smelled JUST like that! HAHAHA … and I fell in love!! I feel bad for Sam my fellow raspy voice girl, maybe she forgot to put on deodorant that day so that means her and Ben aren’t right for each other??? But actually, I was MORTIFIED for her!! It reminded me of the date on Jason’s season where we all had to go topless and take forms of our boobs for charity. OMG YOU GUYS I HAVE NO FREAKING BOOBS!!!!!!!!!! I mean there is that one boob that is kind of there but the other one might as well not even be there at all and I had to SHOW JASON THAT ON THE FIRST DATE!!! OMG OMG … I remember thinking ok ok how can I get out of this God forsaken mess!!?!?! So to be honest, I would rather smell like Chinese food than show the guy I’m falling in love with my little bee stings. Just saying.
The only other thing I took from the dates is my notice for Caila. She’s a lot cuter than I remember from the first night. I like how relaxed and easy going she is. I think her and Ben have a lot of chemistry and I think we need to keep an eye on her!
And I guess we should talk about the girls that everyone is talking about: Lace and Olivia. Poor Lace, I do just think she is extremely insecure and it comes off as crazy … (again, a staple of the show, and mark my words … she WILL become the most popular!) Whatever happens, I’m not sure if she will be able to handle the competition. Is she the right one for Ben? Probably not, so let’s leave it at that. And Olivia, she’s pretty, firey and I can see why the other girls have their backs up … she is a huge competition to them! BUT they might be right, I didn’t get the best vibes from her this week. Maybe it was the way the show showed her but I don’t know if she’s the one for Ben …. but who am I to say.
Ending this week off with the girls that I’m rooting for SO FAR with not much backing other than their TV chemistry with Ben … I’m rooting for: Amanda, Lauren B and Caila … the rest I didn’t really notice. Until next week my fellow Bachelor fans.
Who are you rooting for? Let me know in the comments below.
