Bachelorette, Desiree, is in hot pursuit of a “forever” kind of love. Can a soul mate be the result of The Bachelorette? I’m hesitant to jump on board with that theory, regardless; it’s entertaining to watch.
Last night was an unusual viewing party for me. I was crashing at a friend’s apartment, but come to find out at 6:50pm, she didn’t have a TV or Wi-Fi. Ten minutes before the show aired we hopped in her car and frantically drove around in search of a TV. Lets just say, she came to a screeching halt in front of a janky bar and dropped me off curbside with two minutes to spare. Not only does this bar look like even a moderate wind could sweep it off it’s foundation, but it is PACKED with grisly-bearded, beer-drinking men watching the Blackhawks game on a big screen. Apparently it was free pizza Monday and this place was THE PLACE to be. I sat down amongst the men and whipped out my computer, praying to God I could find a stream that worked but no such luck. It was 7:05 and, well, desperate times call for desperate measures, so I walked up to the bar introduced myself and changed the channel to ABC just in the nick of time. There were some moans and groans when the game suddenly changed to the Bachelorette, but after standing on a chair and explaining the situation, the guys relentlessly watched the two-hour show with me while chowing down on free pizza. It was an adventure to say the least!
If you missed the show, Desiree and her top 11 men flew to Munich, Germany where she went on a group date, a one-on-one with Chris and a two-on-one with Michael and Ben. If you haven’t been keeping up with this season, Michael and Ben HATE each other so this two-on-one was what Michael referred to as, “Armageddon.” Michael exposed Ben’s decieteful ways to the world, and more importantly, to Desiree. I, however, was not impressed with Michael’s disrespectful tactics in revealing the truth about Ben. Had I been in Desiree’s shoes, I would have sent them both packing their bags. Speaking of packing bags, Bryden decided his feelings for Des had dwindled and he sent himself home. Desiree you lost a good one! Bryden was my pick from the beginning, but I’m proud of him for respecting both Desiree and himself enough to walk away. He seems honest, down-to-earth and not into the drama, unlike Michael and Mickey. Does anyone else find it a bit ironic that the biggest men in the house are also the biggest babies? James revealed his true motives for being on the show, to be the next bachelor and have 20 plus beautiful women at his disposal. Drew and Kasey planned to warn Desiree about James’ intentions but Des skipped the cocktail party and they missed their opportunity. After the rose ceremony Mickey, Ben and Bryden were removed from the competition. We are down to 9 guys now; my top three being Zak, Drew and Chris. In an interview with host Chris Harrison, Desiree reveals that she has the strongest connection with Brooks, but Zak is one heck of a kisser. I’d kiss Zak, he’s hot and hilarious!
That’s your Bachelorette recap, let me know what you think!
