The recap will be up as soon as I finish choreographing my lyrical routine to “Here Comes the Bride.”
You guys talk among yourselves until I get back.
Now where did I put my toe shoes…

SNOOZE! I gave up after Tenley’s embarrassing dance… hoping the recap will fill me in on everything I “need” to know!
Hiding behind my couch the whole time! Was it just me, or was 1/2 the show Ali leaving?? I can’t wait to see what you have to say — there were SO many awkward moments!
OH MY GOD… Could this have been the LONGEST DRAMATIC EPISODE EVER? Good lord, someone kick that crying head cheerleader off the damn show already! Sure, she seems sweet and innocent but someone please tell me why she’s getting so much camera time? Bahh!
And yay. She comes back next week. Awesome.
Ali, Ali, Ali!!!!! …. the messy ponytail, queen bee, first in line, first off the bus, always right next to the “it” guy, first awesome date, a tour guide date in her present city, the LL Bean Family in Massachusetts AND then she quits!! Something smells fishy ABC! Does anyone else feel Ali is being groomed for the next Bachelorette? Doesn’t one know their job commitments before signing up for the show? ENOUGH OF ALI!!
I’m afraid Jake’s “Wings of Love” are about to crash and burn.
did anyone catch when ali wiped her nose with her hand and then ran her hand through her hair? GROSS! I almost threw up.
Did anyone notice Ali mouthing “Now?” to OHCH right before she said, “Chris, can I talk to you for a minute?” That seemed awfully staged.
I am a guy. I watch this show against my will. Bottom line: Ali is drop dead hot. Great freckles, great smile, looks good in yellow… etc. The plaid shirt for the home date? AWE. SOME. She seemed to have a great family, she lives in a cool city and has a job she loves. What in the hell is not to love about her?
Tenley carries BAGS. B-A-G-S. Crap, even her dad is messed up over this a-hole ex. That family is not ready for a wedding… and the dance was CREEPY. (Note to ladies, guys who like girls don’t like lyrical dance. If they tell you they do, they’re trying to sleep with you. FYI)
Gia was going home if Ali stayed. She’s on life support. We all know this.
Vienna looked like she lived at Adam Sandler’s house in ‘The Water Boy’. He dad needs to consider contacts instead of Coke bottles.
If Jake wasn’t smothered in douche-tastic-ness, he would have locked it up with Ali off camera and made it happen. He deserves exactly what he gets when he picks Bags, Jersey Shore or Florida.
Gross moment of the night for me – did anyone else catch the photo of Vienna and her sister wearing nothing but what looked like towels in some sort of glamour shot, framed on a shelf in her dad’s garage? It was just over his shoulder as he was talking to J in the garage and that sealed my creepy feeling about the dad right then and there. I am all for being close to your dad, but I don’t find it normal that a dad would have a photo of you in a towel in his man cave.
I dunno…as much as I don’t like to buy into all this nonsense, it did appear that there was something there between Ali and Jake. Yes, there was plenty of good “soap opera” acting going on between Jake and Ali, but I feel like he was supposed to pick Ali in the end. You can fake a lot of stuff, but I just don’t think those two were faking their feelings for each other. The both glow when they are around each other. I don’t think the leaving was a set-up by ABC. However…I thought it was rather humorous how quickly he got over Ali’s departure. When he walked back into the room and said “I’m so glad I don’t have to hand out any roses tonight. Ladies, come on up and get your roses” with this big cheshire cat grin on his face. Seemed so funny to me.
Tenley — bless her heart. I thought it was funny how she asked Jake if he can make his own decisions and he said “I pretty much run everything by my parents” which was NOT the answer Tenley wanted to hear…but then she follows up with “I’m so glad you can make decisions on your own.” What the WHAT?!
Vienna — no way, no how does Jake fit into her lifestyle. Not.At.All!
OMG I could not handle Allie crying…I really wanted her to make her decision and just leave. I thought it was funny how happy the other girls were the minute they found out that Allie was leaving. lol. Also, I love Tenley but dancing to Pachabel in D Minor(sp) is a bit desperate to show Jake that want to marry him. I was half expecting her dance to be her marching while holding flowers. I also thought that if Allie wasnt on the chopping block then he would have sent Gia home and he should have. I mean he is the one that said that he doesnt need to wait for rose cermonies. The way Gia talks really annoys me. He should pick Tenley but I dont think he will.
I can’t believe the producers wasted nearly 45 minutes solely on Ali’s shouldileavetosavemyjoborstayforlove drama. I was SO over her sniffling and sucking up snot as she waited for Jake to declare his underdying love and beg her to stay. Helloo??! Did you not watch the Ed/Jillian last season? Leave already! The producers will bring you back. GO TEAM TENLEY! I think Jake’s home visit with Tenley and her family was the most genuine – they’re perfect for each other – wholesome, corny goodness. Dibs on Gia as the next Bachelorette!
I hope jake picks no one. these girls are all a mess.
and ali, if the work thing was real… you made the right decision. good for you in being a grown-up. i know it might’ve been really hard, but in reality you’ve only known this guy for what, a few weeks? you don’t give up your dream job for that…
maybe that’s just because i was unemployed for a while this year… it sucks, Ali. It really sucks. You’re 25. You’ll bounce back from this.
During the first conversation where Ali comes to him to tell him she may have to leave, the editing/dubbing was SO bad. If you watch carefully, what you heard Jake say totally didn’t match his lips. Makes you wonder what he really said. He may have had chemistry with her but during all her blubbering and snotting he was sure stiff and unemotional. He looked like he wished he could disappear.
I also had a thought about the way Gia talks. Her mom and brother had such thick accents, I wonder if she’s trying to talk without one? Every once in a while with a word here or there her accent creeps in.
Tenley’s dance to wedding music was ridiculous! I had really hoped to see something more of what she could do. Sad that there were no gran jetes, fouettes or other more impressive moves. If dance was really her life, it seems she should have been able to do more with the choreography to showcase herself.
Vienna’s hometown visit made me think “Deliverance” ‘Nuff said.
I think I was hiding underneathe my blanket for most of this episode! It could not have been more awkward, dramatic, and boring all at the same time!
All of Ali’s whiny crying was BEYOND annoying, and all that wiping her snotty nose all over her arm was really starting to gross me out. I’m shocked Jake didn’t walk into the non-rose-ceremony with Ali’s dribble all over his jacket. Don’t get me wrong, I like Ali! I think her and Jake would honestly be great together, but – this episode was just too much!
And Vienna – here we thought she was miss priss super rich chick, and she’s really a redneck rich-girl-wanna-be! Didn’t see that one coming. Found it pretty sad she didn’t know how to tie a boat knot after “living on the river her whole life”. *eye roll*
I don’t know if I can take 3 more weeks of this….hahaha
hello- erick (gia’s brother), Exxon called, they wanted to know if you needed more hair product! holy crap, what was going on with that hair and the soprano type attitude! they scare me!
