The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All (Except What They’re Contractually Obligated Not to Discuss)

We’re at that point in season 8 of Bachelorette where Chris Harrison finally asks the guys “what the hell was wrong with you when you called Ricki baggage” and “are you that douche-y in real life?”  (The answers are: I’m just bein’ me and yes, respectively.)

Here are a few of my initial observations:

Holy spray tan, Batman!  It looked like quite a few of the rejects took a detour to the “Dancing with the Stars” set and made liberal use of the unlimited spray tan facilities.

The Bachelorette: It’s Gettin’ Serious, Y’all! Seriously.

This week’s episode is brought to you by the word “serious.”  Because, in the words of the guys vying for Emily’s heart, “this is getting serious,” “once families get involved, it gets serious” and “this just became super-serious.”  Some iteration of the word “serious” was used at least six times tonight.  Seriously.

The Bachelorette: More Fake Traditions, Men in Kilts, and Croatia is ‘Cool as Hell’

Emily and the eight remaining guys spent the week in Dubrovnik, Croatia where master-of-the-obvious Jef made such enlightened statements as, “hey, that looks like a castle!” (while pointing to a castle) and “Croatia is the perfect place to fall in love.” (Yeah, tell that to the people who survived the siege of Dubronvik.) 

This week, the one-on-ones were awarded to nice guy/Ostrich egg-boy Travis and “I want a trophy wife” Ryan, who apparently were the boys in the bubble (but not in the John Travolta movie kind of way).  Emily has agonized over which guys are there for “the right reasons”, who has a “connection,” etc. (If you’re participating in the Bachelorette Drinking Game, go ahead and take a shot.  Only if you’re 21 and over, of course.)

The Bachelorette: Emily Finally Drops the F-Bomb, Ricki is a Chloe Bag and Shakespeare Rolls Over in His Grave

It’s finally here!  ABC has teased the hell out of it, essentially showing the entire thing in promos, but it’s here!  We’ve arrived at the week when Bachelorette Emily finally drops the F-Bomb and kicks a guy off the show.

First things first:  If you’re a guy and you think the other guys are on the show to be your friend, you’re an idiot.  They may be on the show for many reasons (finding love, their 15 minutes of fame, etc.), but making friends ain’t one of ‘em.  This whole Fratty McFrat situation has got to end.

The Bachelorette: The Bromance Continues…

This week on the Bachelorette, Em and her baker’s dozen headed to Bermuda for some fun in the sun!  If I didn’t know better and I happened to channel surf my way to ABC, I’d think I was watching a reality show about frat brothers on a super-lame spring break.  The guys rode scooters around their hotel and Sean and Ryan wore matching ELITE bracelets.  So precious!

The Bachelorette: The Guys Get Grilled, Alessandro the Delusional Gypsy King, and a Farewell to “Shelly”

It’s week three of the Bachelorette, and I need to get a few things off my chest before we get started.  Did anyone else think Travis and Charlie were the same person?  Seriously, we know nothing about their personalities, and it’s week three.  Also, why does Emily keep Michael around?  Maybe they like to braid each other’s hair?  I don’t get it.  And what is a Luxury Brand Consultant?  Someone who likes nice things?  Me too.  Done and done.
