Hello, Class. I trust that you all slept well and are ready for today’s lesson entitled, “What We Learned From The Third Episode of The Bachelorette With Emily Maynard.”

1. Chris Harrison has a really cush job. He explains how the week’s dates will go down to the guys and then excuses himself for the entire episode. Cha-ching.
