The Husband was blowing on my face to keep me awake this episode. It was a VERY long day with the baby. She’s doing this really uncute thing of waking up between 1 and 4 AM several times for the last two weeks out of nowhere. Please forgive typos and grammar mistakes. One of my eyes is 3/4 shut and I can’t get it to open anymore.
In no particular order…
Why is the room where Chris Harrison and Andi have their deep chat full of a roaring romantic fire and candles (I have no recollection of what she said to Chris because the Husband elbowed me to wake me up during this scene too). I was wondering if Andi came to some realization that she wasn’t interested in any of the guys and had pulled Chris aside to confess her feelings for him. Such a strange set up for a platonic conversation.
Was Andi wearing a “skort” on her date with Blonde Biceps, otherwise known as Cody? Are skorts back? The Husband thought she had a wedgie the whole date and I was telling him (when my eyes were open) that this was a skirt / shorts combo thing. I know that Andi likes Cody’s “eyes” but was I the only one that was wondering how on earth he got this far and whether he was actually straight? My cousin, who is gay, is very convinced that Cody may be on his team, which I fully agree with. He seemed like a nice guy, but there was no chance that Andi was ever interested in him.
Josh is killing his chances. What was his problem with the lie detector test? Does he protest too much? What exactly was he worried about? He doesn’t seem smart enough for Andi.
What is the other guys’ problem with Nick? I can usually see what the majority hates about a person, but not really seeing it too clearly with Nick. Yes, he’s smug and perhaps overconfident in his relationship with Andi, but he’s also the most articulate of the group. Marcus is already in the zone of chest hair and confessing his love. Not sure he’s capable of talking about anything else, like whether he prefers mustard and ketchup on his hot dog. He needs to take it down a notch. But he’s sincere and classy and the only other one that comes close to being a contender for Andi.
I still love Chris the Farmer and his secret admirer love notes. He has the cutest smile. Andi may like him but there’s still no chance in hell she’d be willing to be a farmer’s wife. How will she keep her hair so shiny on a farm? I feel bad for Brian because he’s so obviously a small town good guy and Andi may like him but she’s not in love with him. Poor Dylan seems too sad to have any real chance with Andi. Does he ever smile?
So basically, I can only see her with Nick, Marcus and Josh. She can’t trust Josh, so it will come down to Nick and Marcus.
Other thoughts: Venice is awesome. Andi loves to play with her hair, which is very shiny. The Andi pouting was out of control this episode and it needs to stop. Masquerade dates are really stupid. I kind of wanted the gondola driver to wack Nick and Andi in the head while they were kissing. The lie detector date was completely disappointing considering that they are in the most romantic city in the world and couldn’t come up with anything better to do there than stick them in a dungeon looking place and give them a test that could be done in any other place in the world. As for Cody’s date – I went to Verona and to that actual balcony where Andi was looking down from. What they didn’t show was a life size golden statue of Juliette that was beneath the balcony. The statue is no longer gold because time and the environment has darkened it. The one part of the Juliette statue that’s still golden is an exposed “tit.” It’s gold because people touch it for good luck and the oils of their hands keep it to its original color somehow. I guess ABC decided to edit this out. Too bad as it would have been the most interesting part of their date.
Was not surprised that JJ and his bow ties were sent home. Cody should have been sent home at week 2. He’s a nice guy, but not for Andi.
Not much else to say. Except that these episodes are the longest 2 hours EVER. I’ve never had trouble staying up before but then again, I’ve never had a baby during a Bach season.
Leaving you with pics of my baby Bachelorette. She’s 15 weeks today. Goodnight for now.
