Dear Bachelor, The Spark is Fading
Spoiler Alert: Elaney, read no further…
I’ve decided that watching The Bachelor by myself is not nearly as fun or entertaining as watching it with other people. You need to be able to turn to someone to make sure all of this is really happening.
It’s just not that amusing to contemplate Chris Harrison’s awkwardness and therapist tendencies when watching solo. In fact, last night I even fell asleep. Yes, I fell asleep watching the fantasy suite episode.
Sorry, Brad. I’m just not that into you.
Things I wanted to talk to someone about last night, but couldn’t:
Really, The Bachelor gets to go to South Africa before I do? WGP.
I love nature, but I have a feeling that a tree house was not Chantal’s idea of a fantasy suite.
Brad, are you really sure you’ve thought this 5-year old daughter thing through? I mean you’re the guy that couldn’t even commit to a hot 20-something on your last season.
Most overused phrases of the episode: “Oh my Gawww!” and “Shut up.”
Of course the previews made it look like Emily was going to turn down the fantasy suite. I didn’t believe that foreshadowing for a hot second. Never happened in the history of The Bachelor, not going to happen this season.
Did Brad really just tell Emily he’s falling in love with her? That statement’s got to be a contract violation.
How do things go from good to bad so quickly with Ashley and Brad? Jet lag?
Ashley doesn’t want to hug you, Brad, because you just dumped her. Why is that so hard to understand?
I’m still not quite sure what Brad’s ‘type’ is. Chantal and Emily can’t be more different.
Any thoughts you want to share from last night’s episode? Any speculation on who’s the final gal?
Next week for the ‘Women Tell All’, I won’t be by myself. Actually, I’ll be watching from Japan with my brother and sister-in-law. That’s right, I’m going back to Japan to meet my soon to be born new nephew and spend more time with my adorable nephew (soon to be big brother), Chip, and Rob and Alden. David and I used to watch Bachelor with them in Virginia, so it will be just like old times.
