The Bachelorette: Love is Dangerous

I'm feeling good about my decision to avoid Reality Steve and his nonsense. There are a bunch of mean people on twitter that like to leak his information without a Spoiler Alert and so when I see these I tend to cover my eyes as if I've just scene my father in law naked and try to make my mind erase the information. I'm enjoying the show much more not knowing the secrets.

My Drinking Game.

I think the show started 2 minutes early and my DVR didn't get the message because I walked in on the show with Frank getting the 1st One on One card. I didn't get to hear the door bell ring and all of the guys run to the door like little girls.  Frank's card says All Signs Point To Love.

Ali is excited to be dating 17 guys and she's wearing a yellow shirt so I get to take a drink of my martini! She picks Frank up at the Frat House and everyone is excited to see her. They drive away in an classic car which promptly breaks down on the highway. * Why didn't Ali let Frank drive? First rule of Man Code..the man always drives!

They abandoned the car on the side of the road and Ali goes rogue and forces Frank to hike along the highway to the nearest exit where they catch a cab and continue their date. They do some sightseeing, get recognized by fans for the show and pose for pictures like a couple of dorks.

They take their cab up to the HOLLYWOOD SIGN and break in. Ali make Frank hike down some steep terrain to the sign, then Ali pulls a blanket out of thin air and they sit and admire the view. She asks him about Paris and he explains that he is following his dream...to be a screenwriter.

Ali believes that Frank would keep her from being too driven and remind her that love and family are more important. OR she'd resent him for not pulling his weight and dump his ass after they have a couple kids.
  I'm Frank...I like Passion, Paris and letting Ali drive.

Ali and Frank share their first kiss in front of the Hollywood Sigh. How Romantic right? YAY! The car is fixed and they drive it to some other lovely location with a great view and open a bottle of bubbly.

Back at the Frat House...The Picture Us Together Date card arrives and it's a 12 man group date. Craig M is stirring up sh!t and his hat is ridiculous!

Frank gets the rose and she tells him she's glad that he's there, they kiss and he says this is his best first date ever! Ali tells the camera that Frank made her believe that everything she is looking for is possible.

12 Months of Banana Hammocks

The group date takes place at a beach house in Malibu and Ali forgot to wear her shirt and brush her extensions. Justin tells the camera that he's going to take no prisoners but that's just because he can't...due to the fact that he has a broken ankle and can barely get from point A to point B.

They discover that they are shooting a Sexy Man Calendar and most of the guys are forced to wear these very small, very revealing trunks. Hunter is wearing a bright yellow get up that showcases his pasty skin and The Weatherman is forced into the bikini bottoms that Ali was supposed to wear. Craig M is photographed in long trunks, no shirt but with a sweater tied around his neck...while smoking a cigar and drinking a glass of scotch. He looks exactly like the man you don't want your man to smell like.

I smell like hair gel, Polo and Beef Jerky.

There is a game of tug of war, Ty plays his guitar  and sings to Ali and then a group shot of everyone on the beach. (Ali's wearing a yellow dress...DRINK).

Everyone changes clothes and they go to a bar for some one on one time to pick on The Weatherman.  Ali looks great in a black dress that zips up the front and she's wearing a cool cocktail ring. Ty tells Ali that he's divorced, thinks he's a great husband and loves being married.

Craig M is bullying The Weatherman again. When it's his turn, he tells Ali that Craig M shows lack of character, is a dangerous person and is looking for a fight.  When will he actually talk TO her?

DING DONG...back at the house a date card arrives and it says 'use these when the time is right' and it's a pair of cufflinks with the initials JB. Jesse!!

The group date rose goes to Ty but I have no idea why.

Come Fly With Me

Ali meets Jesse at the airport in skinny jeans and heels. They board a private jet and head to Vegas. Once they land they jump in a Red Ferrari (Ali drives again) and they head to a pool called Liquid. They eat oysters and play around in the pool. Later they dress up and Jesse meets her in a AMAZING suite with the most AMAZING view of the city. Ali is wearing the dress she should have worn for the meet and greet!

Back at the house...The Weatherman gets picked on again and Craig M puts his clothes on and does a fashion show.

Ali gives Jesse the rose because he's solid and genuine and says she feel closer to him after talking to him. DUH! She has one more surprise for him and they go to a nightclub called Haze where there is some unknown guy that plays music for them while they dance. SHOT! Jesse says this is the best first day he's ever had.

Cocktail Party

Ali arrives in a gorgeous white dress with a great ring! We find out that 3 guys will be going home and 3 guys didn't get dates this week. Chris L talks to her and tells her he's the oldest but still doesn't spill the beans about his mom.

I missed Roberto this week...he tells Ali that he was drafted by the Rockies and Twins and they go out front to play catch with mitts that he brought from home. Ali throws well!

Kasey only gets a few minutes of her time before he's interrupted by Frank (who already has a rose....HELLO) and he tells Ali he feels like she's his girlfriend. They kiss.

Craig M is picking on The Weatherman again and he runs to Ali to tell her again that Craig is a mean guy and dangerous. She finally confronts Craig and he is struggling to defend himself. She questions if he even likes her because he hasn't tried to ask her anything and he doesn't make eye contact with her. He stutters around the question because he was planted there by the produces to bully The Weatherman.

Craig M performs his last dramatic scene by confronting all of the men and trying to get to the bottom of who called him dangerous to Ali. He accuses The Weatherman and he responds by stuttering and reminding him that he already told him he doesn't like him since he wore his underwear, purple dress shirt and fancy white jacket in front of the guys. My Gaydar is strong with this one....

Finally....the Rose Ceremony and then there were 14 left. Exit stage left...Tyler V, Chris H and Craig M..the bully monster who left us with some parting words ...You can't be serious with someone who's shorter than you.

  1. HAHA - I JUST put on Twitter if Ali had extensions! I was wondering how her hair grew... magic love makes hair grow?

    I love Frank in all his kookiness! Want to see more Roberto - growllllll!!!!!

    Oh my gosh - thought the weather man was going to be one of my favs but quit whining buddy!

    I'm trying to stay away from Reality Steve myself.. want to be surprised.

  2. I don't watch the Bachelorette and didn't know Reality Steve (though I now know to stay away LOL) but I truly enjoyed your rendition.

  3. So glad you mentioned your gaydar because I was SO thinking the same thing last night. He has to be gay! At first I thought he (the weatherman was going to be okay) but now I kind of laugh at him every time he is on air. (not because I think he's gay, but because he is so whiney, and so in the closet, just come out with it already!) LOL

  4. Wow, could Craig M. have been anymore of a d-bag? Gah, the whole weatherman story was exhausting last night.

    WHAT is wrong with Kasey's voice? And the driving thing drove me crazy, too.

  5. @ Michelle...if The Weatherman's NOT gay...then he needs so Man Coaching.

    @Sturgmom...some are saying that Kasey might be hard of hearing. But I haven't seen that verified.

  6. I could see Kasey having hearing problems as a kid. He does speak like he is or was deaf/hoh at some point.

    and YES, thank you!!!! The Weatherman is gay. He must be.

    I love Frank. He could end up being a tad bit crazy though. But I like them a little nerdy.

    As for the rose going to Ty... Maybe he's the only one whose name she could recall? I was confused about that too!

  7. I'm not sure what it is about Frank but he creeps me out. Even beyond living with his parents ... he just seems ... odd. And he is getting too attached too fast. I can't see her ending up with him.

    Being hearing impaired seems about right with Kasey. His voice drives me nuts but I could see that being the cause.

    I think Roberto seems pretty great so far. And I like Jesse but it didn't seem like they had chemistry?? If he is truly a General Contractor at 24, he has his stuff together! A real GC license takes years of experience and a degree before you can even sit for an exam. And he's HOT!

    Love your recap!!!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my Bachelorette post! I think we'll get along quite well this season. Good stuff!! I think Ty got the rose as the token "I'm trying to show you how cool I am about your divorce" thing.

    For the record, I do read Reality Steve but I'm not posting any spoilers or alluding to any of what I've read in my posts. Pinky swear. :-)

  9. Haha...poor steve...He's just a salesman from OH. And I can't even think of who the heck he is. gotta love the "fillers".

    ps...found at from mama kat's!

  10. Hey! I found you through Mama Kat. I will be here to read your bachelorette posts!

  11. Ok I'm watching it next week :) I love your recaps!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
