Oh happy day, The Bachelor was back on last night! I am sad to admit how excited I was at the prospect of a Monday evening filled with chocolate chip cookie dough and quality television programming.
After watching, I just have a few thoughts and obviously nothing else interesting to write about.
The night starts off with Lorenzo’s fantasy date with Jen. He really wants her to “open up” to him and share her emotions, so naturally they are headed to the amusement park. I don’t know about y’all, but some of the most meaningful, intimate conversations of my life have been had while riding in a bumper car or going down a 90 foot drop on a roller coaster.
And that Lorenzo is astute. Did y’all hear him ask the bartender in that ice bar if she was cold? I mean that is someone with razor sharp skills of perception.
So after Jen really opens up, Lorenzo is off to one of the lesser known European cities of love and romance, Budapest, to meet Lisa.
Let me say that I am blessed to have several close girlfriends and not a one of them would ever sell me out on national T.V. by showing up at my house with a wedding gown and telling a potential fiance about my timeline to the altar. I realize this happened two weeks ago on the show, but I must have been in some kind of fog to not comment on the seriousness of this offense. I would like to ask Lisa what she did to her “best friend” to make her hate her so much.
Then again, in defense of Lisa’s best friend, I will say that no one forced Lisa to actually put the dress ON.
Lisa goes on and on tonight about how great her hometown visit went and I just wanted to shake her and say, “Girlfriend, take off that wedding dress and hide those Brides magazines. Put them under your couch like the rest of us used to do. No guy wants to walk into your apartment and see bridal magazines fanned out on your coffee table. It will make him start to itch and ultimately, to run far, far away”.
The word “intense” was used about 1398 times to describe their fantasy date, which to me was code for Lisa will be voted off Bachelor Island and I was right, which just goes to show that no good can come from putting your china pattern before the horse.
As for sweet Sadie, I have to say that I like her. I’m not sure why she’s on The Bachelor and I’m fairly sure she may be too good for Prince LoBo, a fact that was made clear in the previews for next week where we see LoBo shed one dramatic tear (Boomama, you know I noticed) as he faces the decision of his life.
And y’all know I’ll be watching. It will be the MOST DRAMATIC rose ceremony in Bachelor history.
