Bachelor Recap: Episode 9

The recap will be up later this afternoon as soon as I recover from my three-day Disney World weekend.  Until then, can someone confirm if cut-off jean shorts are back with the bang braid?

Team Emily!!! He is smitten with her. Love them together. Couldn’t believe Ashley was so shocked when he sent her home. She never expressed a serious interest in him. Is she the next Bachelorette?

I am totally Team Emily! They are so happy together. He ran to her when they met up. He said he wants a sweet girl and she is. and i think she is letting herself be loved and love him…aww…

Ashley…boo…not a fan…but I heard rumors she was the next bachelorette. I always say I’m not going to watch and if she is it, then this time it’s real. I’m not watching.

But the Teva’s! Did everyone see the Teva’s?!?!? OMG.

Sidenote: My husband wore Teva’s with socks when we first started dating. It was almost a deal breaker. Ha. I have since convinced him that this is not a fashionable choice…and everytime he sees someone famous wearing them (not that Brad is famous, but whatever), he tries to argue for his beloved sandals. He got shot down last night. HYSTERICAL.

Oh! to be skinny with bird legs! those gals were rockin’ the Daisies last night…..Emily was totally hip with the knee high cowboy boots too!…..unfortunately, for those of us with tree trunks, as opposed to bird legs….frayed Daisiy Dukes and boots just aren’t a good look.

Bless her heart…..Ashley, what part of that day-long date wasn’t awkward?…..God love ya, but it wasn’t a surprise to anyone watchin’ that snoozefest last night……when you get to the fantasy suite and the guy says, “I’m glad you’re here” instead of immediately tryin’ to suck every drop of slobber out of your mouth……that’s not good!

I’ve always thought Ash was a little to yippy-skippy for Brad….his brain doesn’t hit on all those cylinders….Emily is darlin’ and can hold her own, but I’m a thinkin’ her southern charm and graciousness isn’t what will keep Brad hummin’…..the whole “lady in public, hoochy in the bedroom” thing……the exact same thing that Chantal appears to have mastered….

my pick…..Chantal….’cause if things don’t work out with her, there’s always Daddy O.

I surely hope Brad and each of the gals had some meaningful or playful or something-ful talking in the fantasy suites because his conversation with each was an utter snooze fest filled with one cliche after another. “Awesome”, “Amazing”, “Put Myself Out There”, “You Know”….Thank the lord for the interaction between Chantal and BBoy as the credits rolled. Plot, energy, tension, fun provided by a cooked worm.
Trouble with lil ol Ashley is she is applying reality to non reality. She made total sense about how if the relationship is good, then all the other negotiating of where to live would fall into place. I think this show should just stop it with American or Canadian women and go straight for the mail order pool of other countries.

this has nothing to do with Brad (but I agree – I think Em’s the shoo in) but CBlain — I’m curious about the comment about Teva’s…. I work events and wear them all the time (no, of course not with socks), as well as Merrell’s, etc…. I’m not going for a fashion statement but when you’re on your feet for 14 hours a day it’s kind of a necessity —- didn’t know this was a ‘glamour’ don’t — but would love to be educated if this is the case…. please expand on the Teva-hate….

And how many times did Brad say “I have an amazing connection with each of these 3 women”? Blah blah blah blah blah….would somebody please buy him a dictionary?

And please, NO, not “Ash” for the next Bach’ette. She’s way too annoying in my book.

Did anyone notice when Ashley made a comment and then after a little pause she added “so much”?-Just like Brad always does. I couldn’t help but crack up. It seems though that that’s all they had in common last night. That was so very painful to watch. We go from squealing like a little girl last week and hanging all over him to shoveling food down because you have nothing to talk about. By the way, has Brad eaten anything this whole season?

I liked Emily alot this episode and I would kill to look like that in those cutoffs and boots. I just don’t think she will move to Austin.

Aunt B-I think you are right. He will pick Chantal. Did you notice he said that he misses her “family”. Translation-“Daddy”.

PS-I don’t want Ashley as the new bachelorette.

Emily’s reaction to the elephant was priceless!!
“Oh my lord!”
“Goodness Gracious!”

As for Teva hate, my husband wears Tevas, but only with an approved outfit. Tevas should only be worn with certain clothing and definitely with no socks.

Hey Aunt B—when you say if things don’t go right, there’s always Daddy O, do you mean Daughter O can fall back on his largesse or did you mean Brad and Daddy O could pursue their bro mance? I’m cracking up big time at work today. Glad I have my own office and can snicker mostly as loud as I want!

I cracked up when Ashley said, “Is this real life?” (a la that video of the kid drugged up from his dentist appointment– something Ashley surely would be familiar with). Made me actually like her a little bit. But other than that, the date was painful to watch.

Tevas– great for tubing, canoeing, other outdoor activities. Cannot imagine ANY work situation (unless you are a river guide or camp counselor) where they are appropriate. I do lots of conferences/events, too, and have found several good comfy brands that look professional, but have quality support/construction to get you through the day. Sorry, OKCBecky… but they’re right up there with Crocs as a major fashion DON’T.

It appears that cut off shorts are only acceptable (according to the gals from the show last night) if they are short enough that the pockets are hanging out the bottom.

I think he picks Emily. Did anybody notice that when he first sees the girls, he would turn his face to the side with Chantal & Ashley, but with Emily he looked at her straight on and never turned a cheek? Not to mention that he told her that he was falling in love with her too, without saying those words to the other girls. If he doesn’t pick Emily, he’s going to look like the biggest douche bag all over again and I think he’s not going to want that. They are like Barbie and Ken!

JennX, I have to agree with you. I was cringing in my seat and was so extremely uncomfortable watching Brad and Ashley’s date. Then, she agreed to stay overnight and it just got worse (i.e. What about those mosquito nets?). Poor thing had nowhere to go without the fear of being mauled by a lion if she chose to go back to her room.

I could never figure out what Ashley was so upset about. It reminded me of jr. high and all of the drama.

She kept talking about her career and moving to Maine to be close to her sister. If she’s that smart, I’m surprised she couldn’t figure out that Brad was indirectly asking her if she’d move to Austin.

On the “No to Ashley as Bachelorette” train. Woo woo
