Tonight to the Prague we go. Poor Ricki is still back in Charlotte. Jef calls it from the beginning "Tonight is a big night" Jef, every moment is a big night. Get with the program. I joke, I like him. He probably lost rock paper scissors this week and had to give the cheesy line.
Blah blah blah, next week is hometown week. Let's focus on this week first. Insert Chris Harrison. I was hoping he would be around more this episode and I hope this is a good indicator of the episode to come. "gentleman enjoy Prague" Chris Harrison has the best deal out of it. They are forced to go on cheesy dates and I am sure he is out enjoying the sites. He seriously has the best job ever!
Contestant Chris, still has creepy eyes. Bring on the date with Arie. So handsome and when will this producer biznass hit the fan. She keeps talking about this secret. I mean just cut to the chase. Stop with the walking around kissing in your shorts with your high boots. Clearly it's not a big enough issue that you don't want to make out with him. Now Chris Harrison breaks down what Emily might be not happy about. "It's like a real life thing, not a production thing" What?? this isn't all real life Emily??? I feel so lied to.
I am over this issue. Emily is being dramatic. Just tell him. He tells you about his lame tattoo just tell him that you know about Cassie. Geez. He must also not know the rules of tattooing someones names on them. My friends husband told me to tattoo someone name on you and have it not be bad luck they had to be dead or blood related. No wonder it didn't work out with her. Stupid Arie. Know the rules. The only plus to this situation is the extra camera time for Chris Harrison. Always a plus. Also, his shooting these little explanations, clearly has been done recently since he is sans ring. Pretty sure Arie apologizing about Cassie was a total voice over. I didn't really see his lips move while he was saying it and we were given the side shot.
She really hopes she gets to meet his family.Ummmm she does realize she is in charge of her future and gets to give him a rose or not. I mean she gets to decide if she meets his family or not. Geez.
I liked Arie in the beginning but him telling her that he loves her means I have lost a bit of respect for him. I get it, you need to step your game, but she just talked about wanting to meet your family. I think you have it in the bag for this week. The love bomb is thrown out way to easily on this show. I think at this point they known each other for 5 weeks and have spent a grand total added up of 2 days together. And ABC wonders why these relationships never work out.
Also might I note, Brad the Bachelor might not have been the sharpest tool in the shed but I think I can see why he and Emily didn't work out. One tool in the relationship has to be sharp and clearly neither of these meets that qualification.
Now for date time with Wolf. I think he should be out based on his nickname alone. Instead we are treated to a super staged history lesson. At first glance I thought the lock said Jef not J&E. Makes more sense now that I saw a close up because I thought he was putting his support in Jef's corner.
Now Sean is roaming the city looking for Emily. I am surprised it took him as long as it did to find her. How hard was it to find all the cameras and lights? Also, why has it taken so long and so many seasons for the gents to not figure out this is the way to more one on one time with her.
Group date time. Chris' temper is starting to come out. It's raining and Emily has planned a great date. A great date on an open air horse drawn carriage where they have to hold their umbrellas up so they don't get wet. Wow. Also, up until this date, I forgot Doug was still around. Sure sign that he is going to be a goner. He is so awkward. I wonder if he is still this weird in real life or if it's just the TV. Doug, the pace of this show is way to fast for your tortoise moving self. The the mid-sentence kiss of death. Well that is what I am going to call it because she is kicking you to the curb and kissing her now isn't going to help your cause. He thinks his girl radar is totally broken. I think America, or girls ages 18-35, are nodding their heads in agreement.
I don't think leaving Chris alone with the rose is a good idea. Nor was letting Sean have alone time with her first. Jef can't believe he is the last one to hang out with her and go on a one on one date. The hits keep on coming. You got the the last card and everyone else has gone on their dates or is currently on them thus you get the final date.
Chris doesn't get the rose on the group date. The freak out is about to begin. Boiling down to the most dramatic rose ceremony ever. I hope they use metal detectors because I could see him packing heat and going postal.
Jef making the MJ marionette dance was pretty great. Well done sir, well done. The whole acting it out with the marionettes is just cheesy. I am fast forwarding. Come to think of it I am slowly losing interest in the season in general. Major props to Jef for making a date in a big old library romantic. It couldn't have been easy.
Chris Harrison breaks the news that there is no cocktail party. Oh the horror of going thru the rose ceremony sans booze and Chris going crazy because can't talk to her. I think she might be sending Chris and Wolf home. Wolf leave the pack and Chris is still around in all his creepy glory. I guess next week will be his week to peace out.
I can't wait for this season to be over. Emily is a dummy.

Sorry for the delay. It's been a crazy week and I haven't been home to watch The Bachelorette until now.
Enter Croatia. Ricki has been sent home. Sure glad they let Emily shoot this in Charlotte per her demands since they spent all of 2 weeks there. As the gents pull up on a boat with an Irish jig playing in the background??? Whatever, it's not like I know anything about Croatia. Maybe it's a former Irish colony. I don't care enough to google to confirm this
"Emily might be the only thing more gorgeous then these views" Travis. Well played sir, too bad by the time she hears this the season will be over.
It's also like 6 mins in and Ryan has already been creepy. His beard is also not helping his cause.
Travis not taking your shirt off probably means you are going home. She dances and just doesn't care. I dare say she might not be smart enough to care...Oh now for the men at home's thoughts on Travis and the date. How could anyone hear anything when Ryan was wearing that tank top, wife beater. Whatever it was, it was so wrong.
Has anyone else noticed that Emily's handwriting is like a 13 year olds? I feel like she dot's her i's with hearts.
Goodbye Travis, we barely even knew you. How perfect that you have to walk away in a rain storm too.
Group date is a movie. Yes, let's sit in the dark and not be able to talk. Enter Brave product placement. Damn Pixar, you are sneaky! But just when they thought the lame date was over they get to wear kilts and do highland games. worst than the kilts are the shoes and that they had to ride donkeys. Yuck. They are all wearing cut off shirts in a place where it is clearly freezing. I'm not complaining because every event they did seemed to have the sole purpose of showing of the arm muscles. Chris sucks at all the events but wins the bravery cup. Lame. Shawn broke a log, he should have won. She also talked about how not important muscles were. Can we please rewind to her being upset Travis didn't take his shirt off??? I think if he had, he would have gotten a rose.
Arie and Emily take a walk and she comments on the creepy dolls in the shop, he then takes that "special" moment as the time to make out with her against the wall of the creepy doll shop. I like Arie but his timing could have been a ton better.
Oh Ryan please stop talking about your pro-football career. You played arena football and in Europe. Not what I think when I think of pro-football.
Time to give out the rose on the group date and it goes to Chris. Yuck. Just not feeling him. What about my boy Sean or Arie? Or even Jef with 1 F.
The world is our pearl- Oh Ryan. You are fantastic. Better one-liners than Kalon for sure. And they are going oystering. Oh appropriate.
Wolf is still round. I keep forgetting about him so I feel like he won't be around much longer.
Now we get back to Ryan and the date and his use of the word trophy wife. I mean she looks like one for sure but he should keep these comments to his self. He just creeps me out. Yeah he is hot, but he is the hot guy at the bar that will probably slip a roofie in your drink. Also I am going to take this moment to comment on his terrible beard. What is going on with his chin hair. It's just odd. He should shave. Does he not get that he is digging himself a bigger and bigger hole each time he uses the word trophy. He wrote a list of 12 things he wants in his future wife. Doesn't want to be ridiculed. Does that mean his wife can't make fun of his tank top? Deal breaker for me. Sorry Ryan, I know we would have been so good together. He is also not given a rose so looks like his happily ever after won't happen with Emily. He is shocked. Really? Do you not realize what a dbag you are? Maybe you will after viewing this show, or maybe you will be proud of yourself. He is also now arguing with her? If she is such a catch why do you have to convince her. Ohh please don't second guess yourself Emily!!! He is a snake and him getting you to change your mind would further prove this!! Oh, phew. Way to stay strong Emily.
I guess the ABC producers didn't take Ryan's advice on his to edit him because he come off exactly as he feared, as an arrogant ass. Can't think it's just how they edited it though. I mean you have to do the things that create that image.
Now that he is gone, does that mean there will even be a rose ceremony? She sent them both home and I think that wraps up the 2 cuts this week unless she is going to go for the gusto and cut another dude.
Now Arie just pops up? Again, what are the rules. I mean if they all knew that they could come over and talk to her, they certainly would. Who needs a one on one date when you can just walk to where she is staying. Also loving how the only place they could sit happened to be her bed. Good job ABC. Limit the chairs and non-horizontal options.
I have also noticed that Emily loves a sequined dress. It's like she shopped at a pageant store to get her best options for the dates and rose ceremonies.
Doug doug doug. I liked you in the beginning but I don't like you so much now. Not sure why, just can't put my finger on it. Seems just a little bit off and too perfect? I do still enjoy the scenes where she looks at the cheesy JC Penney portraits while she contemplates her decision. She can't decide to send Doug or Wolf home. She is discussing with Chris Harrison what she should do. This is just a ploy for Chris to get some extra camera time he loves. He is such a camera whore!! Really, giving out an extra rose. Seriously are there no rules this season? Do they all just get broken for emily?
Next week the great producer debate. I can't wait!

This week Sean grew on me. I also found myself routing for Jef, if only he would get the extra F on his name. Both of them seem like genuinly nice and considerate guys.
Sure Sean's date was cheesy but hey, it's not like he or Chris Harrison are picking them. Some sappy Exec at ABC is. Yes, take a picture in front of the balcony that William and Kate kissed on, that would be a great not weird at all date!!
Then the acting date. Oh no, she has lost her voice, let's all freak out and act like she is dying in front of us. Ohhh the drama. This has got to be one of the worst dates ever. Or there was whatever season that they went to Vegas and got faked married, that might have been worst
Kalon continues to impress...Not. He did take the acting seriously. He was "born to play this role" of Romeo. Does that mean he will die soon? At least we had Arie, handsome, handsome, Arie. Ryan continues to be a creepster and I still think something is way off with him. He seems like the guy who would smile while he beat you. Creepy talking about kissing her as part of the performance. I keep forgetting that the scarf he is wearing was a stylistic choice he made and not part of a costume they made him wear. And yes, Kalon, shooing her away so y'all can practice more was a smart move. I mean you are here to be the best actor, not to actually get Emily to like you. Mission accomplished sir, mission accomplished.
Also, Doug, who was one of my faves in the beginning is starting to weird me out as well. I am going with what all have been saying that it seems like he is hiding something. The previews however have me very excited to see him call out who over called Ricki baggage.
I wish Arie and Emily would have kissed while he had his lady wig on. That would have been more exciting then the entire acting portion of the show. Now ryan has just gifted her with a necklace. This somehow seems to be against the rules because I don't recall having ever seen anyone give presents before. Does anyone know the exact legality of this issue?
In non-shocking news, it looks like Kalon is the man who said Emily had baggage. Can't say I am surprised to find out it was him. Pretty much saw this coming. Now she shall go West Virginia hood rat backwards on his ass. Can't wait to see that. esp with her raspy voice. Ohhh shit, she just took off her leather jacket. This show is getting real. Exit Kalon and his shiny face stage right. You get that, an acting reference. Go me!
I am pretty happy the Jef gets a one on one date. I am interested in seeing them interact with each other more and he was ok with going to afternoon tea. Bless his heart he just wanted some time with her and now he is getting an etiquette lesson. Now he wisks her away to a pub. Looks like it's the same one the Prime Minister left his child at. I like Jef, but was surprised with his use of a Chole handbag reference. He did redeem himself when he said he wants someone to share the details with. I found that very sweet and endearing. I'm now on Team Jef for the win I think. and then he finally kisses her, even better. I got chills when it happened. It might have been that I was sitting in sweaty clothes and it was getting cooler but hey I got chills.
blah blah blah talking cocktail hour, bring on the rose ceremony. Oh alejandro, don't seem so shocked. I had a feeling you and your earrings were not meant to be. Mad props to however was wearing the red pants though. Own that look! You go Wolf because it's pretty much been the only thing that has made you memorable. That being said I think Wolf and Ryan will get cut next week or the 25 year old who's names I can remember but kinda reminds me of a creepy Ken day. She wants the guys to be be truthful but I also feel like she is asking them to all be tattle tales.
Can't wait to see her makeout with someone in the library, As a reader, I totally get it!
