Bachelorette Breakdown – The Showdown
Posted on July 10, 2012 by braddearl
Have we ever seen a final three Bachelorette episode with no fantasy suite? Is Emily starting a trend that will carry over into future Bachelorette seasons? Will ABC make sure this never happens again and find the trashiest, easiest Bachelorette ever for next season? Most likely yes. But for now, let’s just enjoy this display of self-control and respect in this week’s Bachelorette Breakdown!
Wow, what an episode! It was full of helicopters, yachts, and plenty of passion bridling. I’m not convinced that there wasn’t any time spent in the fantasy suites. But I’ll keep my ABC conspiracy theories to myself.
In case you missed it, here is last week’s Bachelorette Breakdown – The Final Four.
A few random thoughts before we get to our Bachelorette performance grades…
- Where is Curacao? If you are a geography nerd like me, you always wonder where all these places are. I looked it up and Curacao is a small Caribbean island off the coast of Venezuela. (I try to make the Bachelorette Breakdown as educational as possible).
- How great was it to see a helicopter again? When you go to a Nick Sparks’ movie you expect to cry like a girl. When you watch The Bachelorette you expect to see multiple helicopters in every episode. We have been jipped this season. That would have been great if Kalon was driving the helicopter. I miss that dude.
And now a look at those that left us…
Sean- I don’t think I have ever seen such an emotional rose ceremony as we saw last night. That was rough. I also don’t think I have ever heard so much feedback from fans saying that Emily kicked off the wrong guy.
Errr, ignore the last tweet. After all, that’s the same guy who assaulted an apple pie.
I was expecting Sean to get kicked off this week so I wasn’t surprised. Many people were shocked that this “perfect” guy could was kicked off before Jef and Arie.
Let me explain why Sean got kicked off the Bachelorette…
Emily has already said multiple times that she is looking for someone who is “fun” that can “make her laugh.” Obviously physical appearance plays a role as well, but Jef’s inclusion into the top three shows that she isn’t all about looks and muscles. If I want to break down these guys based on personality, a good test is to look at them from a guy’s perspective. When I look at these guys and think about who I would want to hang out with, I don’t care about looks, muscles, or any of that garbage. I’m just looking at who is cool and who would be a fun hang.
Arie seems like a pretty cool guy. He is a race car driver so we could always talk about that. He probably knows a thing or two about sports. He’s also shown a pretty good sense of humor so I think he could get along with my friends and I.
Jef has a different personality but he seems to have a sense of humor also. While he probably wouldn’t get along great with me and my friends, he has shown some interests and hobbies and I’m sure we could find something in common.
What on earth does Sean even do? What are his interests and hobbies? I know he played football but does he do anything else? Sean has shown zero interesting personality traits and absolutely no sense of humor. Also keep in mind, this show is edited and created to make the show and contestants as interesting as possible – so we are seeing Sean’s “greatest hits.”
If his highlights are that boring and uninteresting, how lame are his other moments that didn’t make TV? It was no surprise that Sean got kicked off. He may be a gentleman, but he is lame. Ladies, look past the muscles.
And now our weekly performance grades…
Jef- Jef played the fantasy suite card perfectly. He played it so well in fact that Emily said:
“I wanted to be the one to turn him down, but instead he turned me down.”
The girl that everyone stopped their lives for months to meet was turned down? Nice job Jef. He also said that here is a time and place, and that you need to “bridle your passions.” (Alma 38:12)
Was everyone in America thinking what on earth did he just say? Bridle your passions? What does that even mean? Jef gets an A+ this week and I still find it amazing how every week I doubt him and every week he delivers.
Arie- Arie had a pretty good wee…
Hold up, Chris is gonna be on Bachelor Pad? Ok now he is definitely going to murder somebody on TV. And I will probably be watching.
Ok sorry for getting sidetracked, back to Arie. The show is Arie’s to lose. If he can kee-
Kalon is gonna be on Bachelor Pad?!?!? Ok now I am definitely going to watch. Spoiler alert, Kalon is probably who Chris is going to murder.
Sorry I just got really excited about Bachelor Pad, but back to the task at hand. If Arie can keep doing what he’s doing I think he will edge out Jef. Like I said before, Arie is a cool guy and Emily is definitely attracted to him. So what could go wrong? Arie gets an A+
After watching the teaser for the next episode, I have no idea what is going to happen. All I know is that I am super excited and these next couple weeks are going to be tough with nothing to watch. In the meantime, enjoy this clip from Bachelor Pad.
