We’ve got our Bachelorette, Folks. And as princess pretty as Britt is, I can let out a collective sigh of relief. Kaitlyn will make one sassy Bachelorette. I mean, with Britt, we would have heard a lot of hopes and dreams about wanting to find her best friend, have deep spiritual connections, ride unicorns together and go on magic carpet rides. With Kaitlyn, we’re going to get real, down and dirty. She’s already kissed two guys on the first night – if that’s any indication of the season (and we’ve already gotten a preview that she sleeps with one of the guys, regrets it, confesses it to the rest of the guys (always a bad idea) and then faces the consequences). It’s GONNA GET CRAZY!
So, I think we’ve got a decently entertaining season ahead of us.
But one thing that really concerned me. Why didn’t Kaitlyn just straight up ask the guys to be honest with her and themselves after Britt left? Shouldn’t someone have given a speech (either Chris or Kaitlyn) indicating that if anyone was not open to giving Kaitlyn a chance, that they should just leave now? Was she worried that nobody would stay? I mean with the drunk guy gone, there were only 24 dudes left. Then you’ve got the Britt die-hard guy, that takes us down to 23. I was very surprised that the “Healer” decided to stick around. What the heck was up with the amateur sex coach? The Husband started repeating some of the lines he said which I clearly was too hired to hear correctly last night. That guy NEEDED to go. He voted for Britt anyway.
I can’t keep track, but what happened to the lawyer stripper? Did he stay or go? Why didn’t I ever meet any lawyer strippers in law school? Isn’t that an oxymoron?
There’s something really confusing me about the dentist. We all know he voted for Britt. Then he’s flashing his pearly whites and trying to be all nervous around Kaitlyn. She finds him “adorable.” UGH. He’s a bit effeminate for me (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but I’m pretty sure he might prefer men, so he’s on the wrong show.
First impression rose Blondie – is either charming or serial killer cute. I can’t decide which one. But Kaitlyn certainly seemed to like him. The Husband was super impressed with their kissing. Quite passionate for a first kiss, and a first kiss being witnessed by others.
I like the guy that confessed to Kaitlyn that he gave a rose to Britt. He came clean. He sort of reminds me of a fabled French artist of some sort. Ethan Hawke’s Parisian cousin, perhaps? Maybe it’s the facial hair and sharp facial features.
I’m still into Blonde Welder from Idaho guy. He just oozes sincere. And the tall dark and handsome Denver Dude. The health and fitness guy was easy on the eyes too. Soon enough I will refer to these people by their real names, but not tonight.
JJ was an interesting character. Dropping the “I have a 3 year old daughter” card right from the start. I felt like Kaitlyn and JJ were having their inner monologues on full display for all to hear. She was confessing that she would take him more seriously because he’s a dad and that she was already into him. That’s got to make him feel good.
One major thing we must discuss is the reappearance of a past Bachelorette contestant from Andi Dorfman’s season. None other than Infamous Nick. And not only does it seem that he is specifically coming back to woo Kaitlyn but Kaitlyn seems to actually be interested in him, enough to make out with him and keep him around for a bit from what we can tell. Nick, as you may recall, was the runner up from Andi Dorfman’s season. He’s the one that called out Andi for making love to him but then not choosing him in the end. He was both scorned and celebrated for announcing the fantasy suite’s innermost secrets. We love him and hate him for it. Obviously, Andi did not go crawling back to him post-Josh break up because he seems to have found his way to Kaitlyn. This should be interesting.
Any early favorites? Thoughts on Kaitlyn being the Bachelorette? So glad to be back blogging and hearing from you all. Here’s to a great and interesting season!!!
