The Bachelorette: A Snarky Attack
The following is a blow-by-blow set of reactions as tonight’s episode (5/30/11) of The Bachelorette streamed past my poor, addled brain! I mean seriously, I had to do this. Jeff, the masked bag of insecurity, Bentley, the butt-head plant by ABC. That’s how I feel about these guys.
Ashley seems to be wearing nothing but skimpy, little things every where. The show is wearing thin with me, but it’s not my call to ‘not watch’ the series in the household. LOL. And despite my assessment of Ashley’s attire, being a guy, I don’t completely disagree with it.
And one of her first dates, she shuttles the guy off to Las Vegas and looks at wedding cakes and wedding rings. The guy is in this show to, I presume, to marry Ashley, and yet he craps his pants in this weird, alternate reality date of theirs?
To be honest, this season of The Bachelorette feels very contrived. More contrived than the previous few seasons. I find it amazing that despite all the psych screenings they do that they manage to let a nut-job who hides his wavery personality behind his bat-mask and then there’s Bentley. The guy that somehow, Ashley was warned about by some mystery friend, and yet she picks him to continue onward with the other bachelors. And he’s so obvious, way too over-the-top in his one-on-one interviews. I can’t believe this guy is real, but instead, has to be a huge plant by ABC and nothing more.
Ashley’s first one-on-one date had fans praising and cheering the girl. (There’s a first.) The group date, well, Ashley kept up the skimpy attire mode she’s been pulling off since moment one of the premiere of The Bachelorette.
Of course Ashley gets to headline a dance show in Vegas. Then as the episode wears on and she talks to more guys, I have to ask myself if every single bachelor has some personal trauma or tragedy they carry with them?
The second one-on-one was all about the coin flips and not making decisions. (Can you hear my head banging on my table yet?)
So if Bentley has a daughter, I wonder how he would feel if someone treated his little girl like the way he is treating Ashley?
I can’t believe she gave a rose to “Lurker-Man.” That’s the guy with the mask who hovers around the 2nd floor balcony and watches from above, not interacting with humanity.
OK, onward to next week. It looks like Bentley may actually fess up… Ashley looks like, from the preview, that she gets hurt by his admissions, but wasn’t she warned, and still she kept him on? Just sayin’.
Thanks for coming by gang!
