Bachelor Recap: Episode 3

The recap will be up this afternoon as soon as I get back from downtown Houston where I’m skiing in my bikini.  I’m excited to cross it of my leap list.  In the meantime, feel free to read the top five ways ABC saved last night’s episode in my Huffington Post article HERE.

On a scale of one to 10, it might be awesome.

loved the huffington post article. can’t comment there as it keeps rejecting my password. I have to say , this season is brutal, if not for your column , I couldn’t watch one minute of it. I dvr thru most of it, do like Emily and Kacie, but thats about it.

Is Ben wearing lip gloss or is that from all the kissing?

My favorite part…. “Shawntell called dibs on the body if things went south….”

OMG girl, you crack me up! I sure hope Huffington Post appreciates you for all you’re worth!

The whole Shawntell thing was pretty bizarre! What the heck?

Ben is growing on me…

Know there will be lots to snark about Lince!

Am I the only one who wants to punch Courtney in her fat, pouty lipped face? That girl is wretched. I also need someone to hold LindZie down so I can scrub her face and wash and cut her hair.

Thank God for the PVR, I couldn’t stomach most of the episode! That Courtney is ridiculous and all the girls acted like snotty Grade 9s at the prom when Shawntel showed up.

Was Ben wearing Bermuda shorts for the group date?

And all I could keep thinking was why does he kiss so loud? He is a very noisy kisser.

I haven’t finished watching the episode yet, but I got so excited that I just have to tell you: the place Ben takes Lindzie that requires a password is called The Bourbon and Branch, and I’ve been there! It’s an honest-to-God speakeasy leftover from the prohibition era, with doors that look like bookshelves and everything!

Okay, now back to watching.

Ah, now if I had watched 30 more seconds, I would have seen that all the information I gave you is also given to you by Ben. “Old school”, though? There are way more classy ways to describe it…

Did anyone see the hickey on Nikki’s neck when they watched Emily’s date?!?! EEEK.

I know I am always the odd ball out but I actually think Courtney is pretty funny. Everyone watches the show and doesn’t understand that you are there for the guy not to make a bunch of friends… I think she (and thought Michelle Money) is hilarious.

Did anyone notice the girl crying on the group date when Ben gave out the group rose? I can’t be sure who it was (Casey S. maybe? Jaclyn? The other blonde ?) Was there a meltdown that I accidently FF through? There are clearly glistening tear trails on her face during the cocktail reception post-skiing.

Saralovesthebachelor, I noticed that too and thought that maybe it was because of Brittany leaving??

@saralovesthebachelor I saw that too!!! It was the crazy lezzy girl (Monica?). she was sitting at the table as they were chatting and then the camera panned over her and she had tears streaming down her face! I thought to myself, “what the heck?!” and then they switched scenes super fast and didnt mention it. I wonder if that was really a scene from when shawntell shows up but they edited it to be earlier in the episode?

Best part of show:
Actual Bachelorette Remark spoken with a hiss and complete disdain, “Ben is NOT here for Brad’s sloppy seconds!”

My instant thought, “No honey, you are here for Ashley’s sloppy seconds!”

The highlight of the whole episode for me was “The Concert Date”. I happen to love Mat Nathanson. I could have watched him for two hours instead of Ben trying to get his ‘kiss” on.
Was I the only one yelling at the TV last night when the mean girls were saying that she Shawntel didn’t derserve to be there because she didn’t “know” him the way they do. Last time I checked the girls are only two rounds of “dating” into this trainwrek, and have probably had about the same amount of conversation time as Shawntel.

Michelle Money was hilarious – Courtney is just rude. If I were Ben, I would have given her the shoe right after she complained about the time I spent talking to “what’s her butt.” That would have done it for me.

I’m still on team Kacie – she seems like the sweetest, most natural, most emotionally mature of them all (even though I think she is one of the youngest). Also liking now Emily and Lindzi, with probably Rachel rounding out my top four.
