What a night!
I am happy to be back blogging this season and I can’t tell you how cool it is to be in the great state of Texas for the next 14 weeks. Our very own resident Sean Lowe is back in the game with 25 – I mean 26 bachelorettes and there were some interesting first impressions to be had! But whats does a football player do before preparing for a big game – have a locker room talk by the Lou Holtz of Bachelor-dom – Arie Luyendyk Jr. – plus a few beers. So as great as this little reunion was Arie and Sean clearly needed a little liquid courage to tackle the awkward forced meeting. Guy’s do conversations between you all really discuss break-up techniques and kissing tips? BRO-tasitic!
So after a lesson in “how to kiss with your WHOLE body” let’s jump right in and go 1 -25. First impressions here we go:
First Impression of Sean: Let me say while I wish him all the luck in the world he absolutely knows how to rock a skinny tie!
AshLee LaFrazier – 32, Personal Organizer, Houston, TX: Very poised but the turnback queen – she couldn’t help but let Sean know, “she’s REALLY glad its him.” – NAY!
Jackie – 25, Cosmetics Consultant, Boynton Beach, FL: She thought putting her mark on Sean was best. Clearly she chose a fluorescent shade just as bad as the color of the hair – find another crayon shade little one! – NAY!
Selma – 29, Real Estate Developer, San Diego, CA: Selma, Purrrrr! Did anyone notice the music change to a flamenco love song? – YAY!
Leslie H. – 29, Poker Dealer, Los Angeles, CA: First, what should I say – BIG SMILE? May be the best way to put it. Plus poker dealer? Pretty sure this one is a Jack of all trades since she has her own IMDB page. – NAY!
Daniella – 24 Commercial Casting Associate, San Francisco, CA: Her sultry “Hello,” was about all she wrote folks – and a cheesy handshake to boot? She’s my kinda girl because that would totally be me! – YAY!
Kelly – 28, Cruise Ship Entertainer, Nashville, TN: Oh the singers the song writers and on her the fake tan! I think tonight she’s going to be singing her swan song – “They say – love don’t come easy” miss Kelly. – NAY!
Ashley P. – 28, Hair Stylist, Macomb, MI: What is with girls pulling stuff out of their boobs – I mean we can store some but were not Mary Poppins ladies. Clearly this one is channeling her inner Anastasia – what are you planning on doing with that grey tie Ashley – oh right, tie yourself to your bed post – at home! – NAY!
Catherine – 26, Graphic Designer, Seattle, WA: I’m a fan – this little pint sized beaut from Seattle came in classy confident and strong – I’ll absolutely dub her the aire of mystery this season – I’m calling it, late bloomer and she will be around for a while – she’s def our onion! (Our Chris Lambton!) – YAY!
Paige – 25, Jumbotron Operator, New York, NY: So second time around and dear miss Paige still didn’t make it through night 1! Who’s all for calling up Reid Rosenthal and making it work – TEAM Reid/Paige! – YAY!
Tierra – 24, Leasing Consultant, Denver, CO: So my mom watches this show. And literally the first text I got from her said “Who names their daughter Tierra!” enough said Mama! Enough said! Congrats Tierra – first rose! Now you have a HUGE target on your back. If she was smart she would have hid it! – NAY!
Amanda – 26, Fit Model, Newport Beach, CA: You know that girl that looks NOTHING like her picture. Well the fact that her awkward moment was just as awkward as her picture – maybe she will have a third side to her personality – meh she gets a chance. – YAY!
Lindsay – 24, Substitute Teacher, Fort Leonard Wood, MO: Clearly they don’t get out much in Fort Leonard Wood! But girls got “balls” planting a smoocher on the Bachelor on night one – I think this one has a screw loose and by her tipsy antics she’s going to be one to watch! I’m a fan of this looney toon! – YAY!
So after handing out my Yay’s (12) and Nay’s (14) – (see I can be a balanced critic!) I’m looking forward to having my impressions proved right and wrong! It looks like we have quite the season of producer crafted drama ahead of us and I can’t wait to see what the future holds – for Sean that is.
In similar news – Check back here on Thursday for a very special interview! I managed to snake an interview with one of Sean’s buddies and trust me he’s got plenty to say about life, the show, Sean and what he’s looking forward to most about Bachelor Season 17!
See you next week!
