The Bachelorette Dish - Episode 3


I am linking up here for The Bachelorette Dish.

 I know most of my loyal readers could care less about The Bachelorette so please feel free to sit this post out.  But I know a few of you watch too so please comment and leave your thoughts.  Or better yet, join me for this link-up!  And I have to mention right off the bat that I do not know who wins.  I am not reading spoilers this time!  I know some of you are probably shocked, but I actually want to be surprised for once.  Ok, let's talk about last night's episode...
One thing that you probably won't see in my episode recaps is fashion feedback.  I may be one of the least fashionable people ever so I feel like I shouldn't really judge these people.  I will say that Emily is absolutely gorgeous and looks amazing in everything she wears.  That's about all I got for you for fashion.
I think this is the first season where there weren't any kisses until episode 3.  But we sure saw some making out last night!
Chris got the first one on one date tonight.
Emily kept saying how cute he was and that she would never have the guts to approach him at a bar.  I just don't see what she sees I guess.  Something about him just seems a little stiff.  And he seems a little dorky (not that being dorky is a bad thing).  I can't decide if I think Emily likes the beefy athlete or the skinny dork.  I think in the end though, it will come down to Chris' age and Emily feeling like he's just not ready for a wife and child.  She seemed really put off when he said he was 25.  How old was Brad?  I think 37?  I definitely see her with someone older.  Chris did get the first kiss of the season, but I didn't really think much of it.  It seemed very innocent and not much of a connection.  Not like some other kisses to come...
 The group date was next.  I love that Emily had her friends there to help her.  I think everyone should have that on this show.  It's important to see how your possible spouse interacts with the people closest to you.  I think her friend Wendy likes Sean a little too much, haha.  That was hilarious.  I also wanted to jump through my tv and tell Stevie to stop dancing!
 I do have to agree with Wendy though.  Sean is super cute.  I hope he gets a one on one date next week!  I want to see more of him and Emily.  I feel like they would make the perfect couple.  Very Ken and Barbie like.  I'm so happy he got the rose!

Doug's story broke my heart.  I wasn't a huge fan of him, but he's definitely growing on me.  I think the feelings I had for Ryan are gone and have switched over to Doug.  Ryan just seems too hardcore and very into himself.
I am SO happy that Emily let Tony go.  You could tell it was killing him to be away from his son.  I cannot imagine being away from Kyla for that long.  Heck, I haven't even left her for a full day yet!  But I think Emily being honest with him and sending him home was for the best.

The jury is still out on Jef.  I can't decide about him.  I need more time.  I did think it was adorable that he told her that he has a major crush on her. 

Arie had the next one on one date.  Wow, can we say chemistry?  Now those were some kisses!  And I love that he kissed her forehead.  I love love love when my hubby kisses my forehead.  Anyway, these two definitely have a strong connection and I think Arie is going to be around for awhile.  I may be reading into this way too much, but I feel like the slow motion picture they did with these two at the end of their date with Dolly singing in the background would be the perfect way to look back at their relationship after she picks him.  What do you all think?  Or maybe they're going to try to make me think all along she picks Arie and then shock me when she chooses someone else.  We'll see I guess.

Kalon - Wow.  I hope he goes home.  And pronto!

Alessandro - Wow Wow Wow!  Emily isn't messing around.  I love that Arie was there for her and kissed her and told her to have a good night.  

So, who are my favs?  Sean is definitely my #1 by far!  It may be because he's an athlete.  But I also feel like he's really sincere.  If he doesn't win, he should be the next Bachelor for sure.

I also like Arie and Doug at this point.  Like I said, still not sure about Jef.  I need more from him.  Ryan was one of my favorites last week, but he's just giving off this macho attitude thing that I don't like.
Ahh, I can't wait until next week.  There are 13 guys left and I wish we could just skip to the top 4 because I think there are so many guys left that have no chance and I just want to see her with the top guys and see who she picks.  Like Kelly Ripa said, this season there are "slim pickens".  I couldn't agree more.  Luckily I think she has a couple really good guys!

Who are your favorites so far?  Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts :)


  1. I totally think we have similar taste in these bachelors! I completely agree about how great of a guy Doug is, but I just see something missing between those two. I won’t be upset if I am wrong though because he does seem like a great guy!

  2. We totally have the same taste in the guys!! I completely agree about Jef - he seems a little immature or something - I just can't put my finger on it! Thanks for linking up girl! Sorry about the button, I'm not sure why it did that for you :(

  3. This is one of the only trash tv shows I *don't* watch haha...but I must say that 3rd guy's picture creeps me out---his hair is so icky! lol

  4. I haven't seen an episode yet this season but I always loved reading the spoilers! Now that you mention it, I might go read them for this season haha.

  5. I finally got around to watching this week's episode, and wow! I have so many thoughts. First of all, I was SO mad that Kalon didn't go home. I hope he leaves soon!!!

    So glad Alessandro left; what a jerk!

    My favorite pick has to be Arie! I think he seems so sweet and real!

    My outlook on Ryan has changed as well, and I almost feel like he is there just to win the game. I would like to see him go too.

    I like Doug probably as my second fav. and then Sean.

    Can't wait for Monday!!
