That’s right. It’s our favorite time of year again: It’s BACHELOR TIME! Time to greet Chris Harrison! Scoff at tacky pageant gowns! Marvel at multiple helicopter rides and picnics! Watch someone who is afraid of heights bungee jump! See one girl emerge as “the bitch”!
(Is my excitement a testament to how sad I am?)
If I’m honest, I have to admit that I was worried that this would be the “dullest” Bachelor ever as opposed to the “craziest” or “most romantic.” Sean is, let’s just say, well-behaved (Is that a good euphemism?), at least judging by his role in Emily’s season. And a strange “bro-mance” moment between him and Arie at the beginning of this season premiere made me (and the ladies I watched with) nervous about what was to come.
How naive we were! How silly! How wrong! After all, The Bachelor is the greatest. We must learn to trust in it. Believe in the power.
Plus, we have made it through some pretty painful “main characters.” Anyway, Sean is “sincere” as the promos keep reminding us — not the “most exciting” or the “most surprising.” But at least he’s not annoying. And it doesn’t seem like he’ll suddenly reveal himself to be psycho or angry like Jake or Ben F.
Well, lots happened on this episode, including the appearance of the requisite wasted girl, dubbed “50 Shades of Drunk.” All the familiar types are in play. I’d tell you who I bet on to stay, but I can’t remember their names. Aren’t they all named AshLeeeee?
That former foster child/professional organizer seems like a decent bet for final three. We shall see!
I’m too busy digesting to recap in depth, but let’s just say, this season seems promising. I forgot how good it gets.
