Bachelor Week 4: “Pretty Woman” Part Deux and the Girls Are Getting Tierra-ble.

Week 4, and there are already declarations of “I want to spend the rest of my life with him” among the women.  Yep, sounds about right.  Chris Harrison doesn’t help matters when he announces that Sean is confident his wife is among the 13 ladies that remain in the house.

A shirtless Sean (in his skivvies, no less!) begins the show talking about how this week, he’s focused on making sure the women trust him.  He says this with a straight face.

Selma gets the first date, and says she can’t wait to “take it to the next level.”

Roller Derby? Been there, done that, broke my elbow.

Olive Trouble

It had me at “great butt.” I’m not gonna lie. I didn’t think it through very well.  Usually I’m so careful. This time I was blinded by the cute helmet, fun stockings and seemingly endless outfit combinations.  And the idea of female empowerment and general badass-ery didn’t hurt either.  But the broken elbow sure did.

Let me back up a minute.  It began when my friend B told me she had registered for Derby Lite.  I was in. Two hours of roller skating every Saturday? 700 calories burned per hour? People would be bouncing quarters off my ass in no time. (Where did that saying come from? Who wants to do that anyway?) Nevermind, I don’t want to know. I registered for the beginners class the next day.
