The Bachelor Recap

If you've read my blog for any amount of time, you know my love for The Bachelor and Bachelorette show. Seriously, I need to get a life! Every season I pretend like I won't really get into it, riiiiight!

Brad- I'm already hooked on this season. I didn't watch Brad's previous season so I had no pre judgements of him, which I'm kind of glad about. I felt really bad for him being put through the ringer the first hour of the show, yikes! He was The Bachelor 3 years ago, and made it to the end and decided to leave engaged to no one. I think it was a stand up thing to do, if he didn't feel like he was ready to spend the rest of his life with either gal, good for him for standing up and saying no instead of proposing and then breaking up 2 days later. Go Brad! Ok back to current season... I think he is cute and seems to have a good personality so far, so we'll see. I'll post my favorite gals, and see what you all think about the cast of this season. 

Emily (my favorite)- Her story actually made me cry, who in the world cries while watching The Bachelor, ME! I need to get it together obviously! Her fiance died in a plane crash in 2004, she was supposed to go with him but wasn't feeling well. A few days later she found out she was pregnant with his child, and knew it was a sign that she was not to be on that plane (how stinkin' sad is that?!). I'm really hoping she makes it to the end!

Age: 24

Occupation: Children's Hospital Event Planner

Hometown: Morgantown, WV

Keltie- I'm kind of undecided about her. I think she is fun and spunky, but semi annoying. So we'll see how far she goes.

Age: 28
Occupation: Radio City Rockette

Hometown: Hollywood, CA

Chantal- I liked her during the whole interview process, but it really threw me off when she slapped Brad, WHAT the H? WHY? She definitely lost cool points with that. I still like her, and hopefully she can redeem herself :)

Age: 28

Occupation: Executive Assistant
Hometown: Mercer Island, WA

Ashley S- Another one of my favorites. She got the first impression rose and totally deserved it. I think she's too cute and sweet, and will hopefully go far!

Age: 26

Occupation: Nanny
Hometown: Ellerbe, NC

Onto some of the gals who were NOT my favorite:

Madison aka Vampire Girl- WHAT is happening with her? Seriously, fangs?! WHY? You're not really a vampire honey!

Ashley H- The dentist. She seemed ok at first, then when I watched the previews for this season, I wanted to smack her. She seemed like the coo coo of the season! I could be wrong, guess we'll see.

Are you watching? Who is your favorite so far?

Miss Southern Vol said...

Im officially in LOVE with Emily! She is sooo pretty and not to mention sweet!!! Glad we can now have bachelor talks :)

Jessie said...

This is only my third season of bachelor/bachelorette but I am totally loving it and have no idea why I held out so long! Anyway, I also like Ashley S! She reminds me of Tenley from Jakes season which I loved her! Also, Lisa M. and I went to high school together! I had no idea she was going to be on the show! She was a freshman when I was a senior but we went to a very small school!

Ashley said...

I can't wait till next week....I was a loser this week and didn't record it! Loved the update though so I can get somewhat of an opinion on people before next week!

Carrie said...

I'm just cracking up at your online usage of the phrase "what the H!" Hee hee :)

I love Emily too but am a little worried about what she said when they were introducing her...the part about wishing she had been in the car too. Thought that was a little strange. I didn't watch Brad's last season either so I am glad to not have any preconceived notions about him!

Lacey said...

So I had every intention of watching the show and watched all of the women meet Brad and then somehow changed the channel at a commercial, got distracted, and never watched the rest of it. I take it the girl from Kansas didn't make it past the first round?

Tracy said...

I refuse to read this post until Saturday..LOL! I will get back to you on my choices ;)

My hubby and I love The Bachelor drama as well. I read that Emily used to date Dale Earnhardt, Jr. I really like her and Ashley the nanny. Crave the Bachelor drama!!
