episode three: diamonds, drama and bears oh my

I'm back ready to chat up the Bachelor with y'all. Like the title? I found it rather fitting for this week's episode. Where do we even begin?

Okay, let's start with my favorite. Stephanie, who by the way I mentioned she looked like a celebrity but could not point my finger to who. I've figured it out...Geena Davis. Yes, maybe, or no way? I love Stephanie's personality though and I was sitting there watching her date with Jason and Sophia with tears in my eyes. She's a great mom. If she does not get picked I call her for the next Bachelorette.

Okay group date. Great cause; loved the date. Everyone was just a bit awkward tonight, except Melissa and Jillian. I wasn't surprised that Jillian got the rose and guess what? She made it through one whole episode without saying anything about hot dogs. I really started off thinking Nikki would be really compatible with Jason and now I'd like to see her go. Not a strong fit at all and although there is nothing wrong with some organization going on in your life she may have scared him with hers. I'm going to guess that she is a frequent visitor of the Container Store. Megan and her bust decorating. Did she really draw a fetus on it? Oh I'm not going to even go there. And then Shannon and the hi and the hug. Oh poor thing it was just so off. Did y'all cringe too?

Well Natalie helped with the title today. The girl really could of gone on a date with just the diamonds. I could tell early on that she wasn't going to get the rose. Just never saw a connection. I would have loved to find out how that girl gets her hair so straight before she left.

And then the drama rose ceremony. I'll start with the big fiasco. I really didn't think it was necessary to hold a big meeting and call out Lauren. I mean the drama is no different then years past. I don't see a connection with Jason and Shannon and really felt that he should have let her go this week to spare her anymore worries. I don't know what that poor girl will do when she doesn't get a rose (which from the previews looks like maybe next week).

What do y'all think of Kari going out before Megan? Not surprised to see Ericka go. I think Kari was just too shy.

Okay, so here's my question: what four do you think will make it to the hometown dates? I'm guessing Stephanie, Jillian, Molly and Naomi.

It's always so much fun having these girly chats with everyone.

i think you are right on with your commentary again!

i do think that shannon (she is crazy!) faked sick to make him feel sorry for her so she would get a rose.

megan needs to go, but i think kari was just too shy like you said.

Scrapper Mom said...

I wish he'd let Meghan go. I just do not like that all.

You've GOT to read my post. We have a lot of the same points. But I'm thinking Melissa instead of Naomi..or hoping rather. lol.

Whitney said...

Yeah, I'm def not digging Naomi at all. So glad Erica is gone!!!
Love Stephanie, not sure if I want him to pick her, though. Love Jillian and Melissa! Shannon did not get on my nerves so much tonight as she has in the past - and I am ok with Molly going a little further.
I can't stand Lauren I don't think, but whatev. I loved the drama!
I'm glad Natalie went home - never liked her! She REALLY showed her true colors afterwards!

Aubs said...

Ha! I haven't gotten a chance to blog about it yet but WOW! Love the comment about she could of gone on a date w/ just the diamonds....right on! Stephanie's date was sweet last night and my hubby and i were saying last night that if it doesn't end up being her she should be the next bachelorette! Sooo much to say but i'll save it for my post! My picks for the hometown dates would have to be Jillian, Melissa, Molly and geez...i'm torn between stephanie and naomi...can't wait to see!!

Heather said...

Home town dates? Melissa - looking at her nails I still think she is the one. So I think she makes it to the hometown date. Stephanie if he can find a romantic spot with her. You know she is a wonderful mom but will they hit it off romantically? I also think Jillian - they seem to have a fun connection. I cannot think of a forth. Maybe Naomi

Oh and the group date ... loved the idea would have gone NUTS if my guy had wanted to do that on a date. There are just some things that do not need to be permanently displayed!

And I have NO clue why he kept Megan. I can't believe she talks the way she does and I sure hope she doesn't talk that way in front of her child!

And the bears! I'm so glad she is gone. She seemed so shallow!

April said...

Hi there!

I found you on Scrapper Mom's blog...nice to meet you!

Looks like we're all REALLY into "The Bachelor". Good TV, isn't it???

Stephanie is probably my favorite right now, though her face looks almost like she's had some sort of plastic surgery. I think she is genuine, but not sure how much "chemistry" Jason is feeling.

What was up with Shannon? She looked like something the cat dragged in! Not a lick of makeup! Her never-ending drama makes me crazy!

Oh, I can hardly wait until next week...Jason says he can't give out the final rose!!!

Heather said...

LOVE IT!! I have to say I don't really like any of them all that much and I really don't like the way Jason is kissing all of them so soon!!!! What happened to sweet and innocent Jason? I dunno...theres something not right with this situation. I don't like how he asked all of the girls to rat out the other girls. I would think if he wanted to ask anyone he should ask Stephanie since she is a lot older and more mature than all of them. I like Stephanie so much but I don't see a lot of chemistry between she and Jason. She seems too Southern (I can say this since I am a yankee transplanted in the south haha) for him and not as down to earth as him. But who knows, I could be wrong!

Melissa said...

Hey! I found your blog from Whitney's. I love the Bachelor and agree with who you think will be there for the hometown dates except I wanna see Melissa stay in too!

Alissa said...

I think Stepanie is amazing also. I pray she is the one for him, I have so much respect for her and all her family has been through. She would be a great choice for Jason or either the next Bachelorette.

Stacy Gibbs said...

Hey girl! I caught up on the episode last night online and I thought about your blog! :)

I'm ready to see Shannon go too! Niki is acting really weird lately, Oh! and did you see the missed kiss? She went in for the kill and was way off..Bless her heart! :)

I would love the see Stephanie, Melissa, Naomi, & Jillian in the hometowns. We'll see!

Thanks for the girly chat! :)
