Bachelor Recap

Hometown Date 1: NY Gia

Wow this girl is insecure. I actually like that she has a more critical eye of the process and of Jake. Her family is little…off-beat, and I didnt see a huge connection between her parents and Jake. But her brother did threaten to cut his legs off…awww. cute.

Hometown date 2: Ali

hold the presses! I thought her hometown was San Fran? oh…ok, she explains this is her REAL hometown(I guess they couldnt do San Fran again…was this a fake hometown?). Her idea of a romantic ‘stroll down memory lane’ soon turns really morbid as they visist the home of her recently dead grandmother. yikes.

Hometown date 3: Tenley

As expected, a down-to-earth midwestern family in the suburbs. Tenley shows her dancing skills (is this the talent portion of the competition?) and they meet her very cautious family. Of all the dates, Jake seems most open and comfortable with this family (I still think Jake and Tenley are somehow related…they are like the same person). Tenley could probably stop bringing up her deadbeat ex-husband.

Hometown date 4: Vienna

We knew this was going to be crazy. And yes, the relationship she has with her father is weird (at best). the strangest part is how emotional they all get over her…the mother actually said “oh, I hear vienna…sorry, I’m gonna cry” She’s not a 6 year old coming home from over-night camp…! Of course, Jake has to try and impress her father, they bond over his harley…but then he messes up by getting caught ‘in the act’ in Vienna’s childhood room. ouch.

then the bombshell of the night (previewed and speculated ad nauseum)

I used to really like Ali . Then last week, I noticed her obsession with the terms : “I’m so excited”,  “like” and “uhmmmm” and her inability to speak with her mouth open. I also noticed her immaturity creeping up on her (acting like a high-schooler jealous of Vienna, but never acting on her threats to approach her and Jake…)

Tonight, I’m thinking…she’s either really dumb…or really…smart (?!) She staged a coup with her decision ( 45 minute indecision) to leave Jake for a ‘job she loves’… but here is my assessment of this decision:

Reasons why Ali chose to ‘leave’:

  • more camera time (taking up a good hour of our time this episode)
  • more Jake time (an hour OUR time is like….20 hours of Jake time)
  • A quicker answer (by approaching him one on one- she could have gotten a sign or confession of his love…a sly trick)
  • A new, ‘new’ job (is she the next Bachelorette?)
  • If she decided to stay after this debacle…she would be showing her devotion (over the other girls)
  • Let’s face it…she’s not really gone. She now gets to play the role of the potential wild card, or the loyal friend giving advice in the end.
  • she drew the short straw…someone had to create drama this week! (I mean…besides Vienna’s dad)

I gotta say…by the next monday, she’s gonna hate her job (like every other ‘advertising account manager’ in history) and watch 3 girls in bikinis walk the beaches of the carribbean with her man. That’s gonna be one heck of a depressing monday.

So no rose ceremony…Jake is whisking Vienna, Tenley and Gia away to the islands next week— and we have NOT seen/heard the last of Ali…guaranteed.
