omg, that hat. i won’t say he didn’t still manage to look hot… but is it possible to look both hot and ridiculous at the same time? Apparently so.

Shawntel is way to cool for Brad. So glad he let her go now. I really don’t get the appeal with ashley. Emily isn’t going to move her baby away from the only family she has. Chantal for the win. Her family NAILED that hometown visit.

I agree with you Marus. I don’t think he will be able to walk away from her after seeing her money, oops, family! I just have a whole different opinion of Brad after reading that article.
That being said, I just really enjoyed watching Brad and Emily together. It just reminded me of real “first dates” with the whole “he isn’t leaving without kissing me”. He has such a deep respect for her, but I think that is holding him back a little too much. So I do hope that he ends up with Emily.
While I don’t like to say too much about these girls physical features, I can’t help but notice how much weight it looks like Chantal has gained. That red dress was NOT flattering to her full figure. Her bra was obviously a size or two too small.
I felt so bad for Shawtel’s dad. He just looked heartbroken that she was considering leaving the family business. I am willing to bet that played more of a role in him letting her go than anything else. Otherwise, surely he would cut Ashley loose already! She is annoyingly childish.

When I saw that hat, I knew you’d have something to say! I actually didn’t hate it, but it didn’t really seem like his style. And I usually do other stuff while watching, so I didn’t see the Madonna gloves.

What do you think the funeral home commercial was all about? Was it meant to be a real advertisement, or was it tongue in cheek? Or just background info?

I missed the gloves and the hat…what the hell was I looking at??

One more thing, why do they start in Seattle, fly across the country to Maine, then back to California and then across the country once more to South Carolina???

Cosmo, what article about Brad? I thought he was pretty well off from owning his bars, so I never really thought about him being after money.

Thanks Marus for being the first one to post….I was trying to play it cool and act like I have better things to do than wait for this blog to get rolling.

Brad….NKOTB called and they want their hat back.

What? They’re back at the bachelor pad? I thought they were in Seattle. Oh wait. That’s Chantal’s parent’s house. How do they sleep at night? (on a mattress made of money I guess).

It was cute to see Chantal’s dad imagine playing catch with Brad, giving him words of guidance, bouncing his brand new baby son-in-law on his knee. They were a perfect match!

I felt for Brad at Emily’s house. Talk about leaving a guy in a lurch. She coulda, shoulda kissed the poor boy much earlier…….awkward.

Crickets……………………….. yup that was the sound you heard when Chantal N’s parents realized that their daughter may not have the same plan for her life as they do. Break free Chantal. Do it now before the apron string is not longer tied but made of titatium rope.

Shout out for all the Canucks who love poutine eh!

Did anyone else notice the look Brad had on his face when Ashley told him what Poutine was? He was either terrified or he was having trouble calculating how long it would take him to get his beautiful figure back after eating it.

Poor Chantal was looking ALL kinds of wrong at the rose ceremony. I love her fuller figure but that dress was not flattering at all. And the hair… HORRORS!

Oh my– what was the deal with that hat ?!?!… I started to wonder if he thought he was a visiter from the really bad part of the 80’s, or travelling from youth hostel to youth hostel in Europe somewhere.
Poor Shawntel— I liked her, but really, did she think putting Brad on the embalming table was the wisest choice? (Unless she was gonna make the embalming room a “forego” suite.)
And salivate much, Chantel? It’s clear he’ll pick her, but can’t he sees that fake flirting for what it is?
Ashley’s cheeleader head bops nearly drove me over the edge…
Loved Emily’s date, but I’d follow her lead and grab him too if he used my daughter as an excuse not to kiss me goodnight. (the reason was sweet, but Emily made a good point — and I do have a daughter… but while I stand firm on what happens in my house, I have never heard that about a kiss…)
Can’t wait to read your re-cap, as always it is the best part of my Tuesday!

I wonder if, when growing up, slumber parties at Ashley’s house were really LOUD and energetic.

Brad obviously has a man crush on Chantal’s dad. Did you notice how they kept going into different rooms like we were getting the tour of the house. They had the “can I marry your daughter” conversation in the wine cellar while he had the same convo with Ashley’s dad in the mud room of their house.

@ Ashley…the one in Us Weekley, about him proposing the another girl right before he went on the show, but then telling her that he was offered the Bachelor again and it would be lots of $$. And the other girl is the same girl HWSNBN was dating on Jillian’s season.

Marus

i don’t know about shawntel – i got the feeling that she might not be super thrilled about leaving Chico and the family business. did anyone catch that she said she’d probably just be hired to do embalming if she went to work at another funeral home? i couldn’t tell if she was okay about that or not.

two words

oliver twist

that’s the only thing that came to mind when he put on his hat.

and then the musical wouldn’t stop playing in my head.

ps – i found it odd that they foreshadowed the funeral director being kicked off and then she really was kicked off. we all knew emily wasn’t going home.

Brad did look both hot and ridiculous in his jaunty cap!
You know he was mentally calculating how much cardio he would have to do to work off the poutine.
Chantal’s parents’ house–whoa mama! The Bachelor mansion must have felt like a tract home to her.
What was up with Emily and her daughter wearing matching goth outfits? Nothing says a warm welcome to my house then all black with a studded belt.
