This week on The Bachelorette Justin and Kasey took their battle for Ali to the next level, but most notably viewers were treated to some of the worst singing in the world. The group date had the men singing and dancing on a Broadway stage of The Lion King. Overall the performances were terrible.
But, let’s get on with our recap and review…
The dates on this episode were boring and Ali was sick. So, did you even watch it? I did. ( I can’t help myself. Neither can you or you wouldn’t be reading this!)
Justin should have been gone by now. I think Ali would already have sent him packing, but ABC sees the “Rated R” entertainment wrestler drama as a cash cow. So, who cares. Justin is good looking, and, just like we want in a good television drama, he keeps things stirred up on the 2010 Bachelorette.
Review of 2010 Bachelors going into episode 604, June 14, 2010
Frank is head-over-heels in love with Ali. Every single rose ceremony he looks like he is going to cry, including this week. I don’t know if his glasses are fogging up, or if he is just a cry baby. He is a little obsessed thinking Ali has belonged to him since the first date.
Ali thinks he is cute and funny. She’ll keep him around a while for the laughs, but ultimately, he will be dumped. I hope he gets contacts before then. Those glasses are already so steamed up the poor guy can’t see.
~Ty – The Nashville Guy
Ty is hanging loose. I love this guy. The last time he had one-on-one time with Ali was two weeks ago. Let’s recap and break it down, this handsome guy brimming with Southern charm deserves a break. I only hope Ali doesn’t break his heart.
Although, if Ty pulls out that guitar one more time I will rally against him. If that happens I will be convinced he is trying to get exposure for a music career. I’m not complaining. A musician can love Ali. If Jake Pavelka can go from The Bachelor to Dancing with the Stars maybe Ty can move on over to American Idol on FOX or America’s Got Talent. Ty certainly has more talent than Jake – the two faced Bachelor.
~Roberto – The package
Roberto is the most calm, cool, and collected of the 14 men remaining on the Bachelorette . Ali obviously prefers him to the other men. I don’t think the rest of the guys have a chance in the long run.
Review and Recap of 2010 Bachelors episode 604, June 14, 2010
Eleven men were in the Bachelorette house when Chris Harris told the men to pack their bags to begin traveling around the world with Ali.
The first stop was New York, rather anti-climactic. Haven’t we been there before?The stop-over in New York allowed for a makeover with In Style magazine, which will be featured in the July issue of In Style. This only puts me on high alert to anticipate more commercial contributions to the dates and settings on The Bachelor and the Bachelorette in the future.
Contributors stand to make a fortune from contributing to the show and ABC will be able to fill their coffers with embedded commercial cash. I’m not looking forward to The Bachelor or The Bachelorette turning into a giant info-mercial. Frankly, it is already too long and filled with commercial interruptions.
Kasey’s Date with the Bachelorette, episode 604, June 14, 2010
As I predicted last week (go me!) Kasey got a one-on-one date with Ali.
He is obsessed. We can see it, the bachelors can see it, and, bless her heart, Ali sees it too. She should have ditched him after the one-on-one date and his awkward moment of gurgling an ear-splitting song. (No more singing! Stop the music!)
It is obvious that Ali doesn’t feel about Kasey the way he feels about her. When she talks to him her eyes are listless. There is no sign of a spark, but every indication that Ali feels sorry for Kasey – in which case she will string him along for another week or so before letting him go, which I’m sure will produce a backlash and tear-fest.
Kasey was blown away because Ali doesn’t believe the line we have heard ad nauseum since day one: “I’m here to protect and guard her heart. I’m here to protect and guard her heart. I know why I’m here, to protect and guard Ali’s heart.” Blah, blah, blah. It sounds like a bunch of baloney, but Kasey does seem sincere – freakishly so.
Even after failing to receive a rose on the one-on-one date he didn’t have a clue. Ali is partially to blame for sending mixed signals. No rose on the date, but Kasey got a rose in the rose ceremony on Monday, June 14.
I thought they had to leave if they didn’t get a rose on the date, but after Jake Pavelka changed all the rules on The Bachelor last year – this week sending three home, this week sending no-one home, refusing to allow Ali to come back – I guess Ali has a free hand in making decisions about the men and their precious roses.
Since Kasey wasn’t sent packing following the date he took matters into his own hands. He went and got his first tattoo for Ali. I’ll give you one guess at what his tattoo represented – I’m sure you got it . He had a shield and a rose guarding a heart. Why? Because he is here to protect and guard Ali’s heart. Yep, that’s why he is here.
Ali has a big heart. She didn’t send him home in the rose ceremony either. Maybe he will go away next week when she finds out about his tattoo. He chickened out on showing it to her this week. (Just be ready with a hanky because that man is going to cry like a baby pinched in a onesie snap.)
Recap of the group date with to Broadway – Bachelorette, episode 604, June 14, 2010
Seven of the guys were psyched by an announcement that they would get to go “play” with Ali.
They expected something sports related, but instead it was a visit to the Broadway production of The Lion King. The guys tried out for a chance to be in the show and a date with Ali.
The best singer was Jesse. Ty was also good, but his country style didn’t blend very well with the show tune. In the end, Roberto (Yeah!) was picked for his courage and sincerity. That is because Roberto and Ali have a connection.
Jonathan, the Weatherman, expected to nail his try out. He did a terrible job dancing and singing. He further jinxed himself by interrupting a private and tender moment between Ali and Craig R. If all of that wasn’t bad enough he brought out his guitar to sing to Ali. (He should have remembered two things. One, he has a terrible voice, and two, Ali nor the viewers can really stand to see one more guitar player and bad singer. (Ty is the only one on this show who needs to even look at a guitar. )
The smoothest move of the group date goes to Kirk.
Kirk is feeling a little cocky following the video shoot with BareNaked Ladies, when he and Ali got to roll around in the sack. Kirk debonairly and selfishly took Ali from the group and tucked her in bed in her suite because she wasn’t feeling well. Smart move Kirk. He had all of the other guys on the date kicking themselves for not having thought of her welfare and the chance to sweep her away themselves.
Because Ali didn’t feel well no one received a rose on the group date. That’s two dates and no roses, so far in this episode. (That’s your brief recap in case you weren’t paying attention.)
One-on-one date with – Bachelorette, episode 604, June 14, 2010
Chris L. received the other one-on-one date this week. He had the opportunity to go on a date with Ali on his birthday.
Unfortunately, Ali was still not feeling well, so for the second episode in a row we watched Ali hang out with one of the guys around her home. Last week it was Ali and Hunter at the Bachelorette house; this week Ali and Chris L. hung out in her NY hotel suite.
I’m glad they are traveling to Iceland next week because these dates are becoming real snoozers.
Chris took Ali chicken soup and flowers – like that took a stroke of genius or a tip from a producer. They chatted and Chris L. won himself the first rose given out this week. (I’m just glad he didn’t pull out a guitar.)
The rose ceremony.
The rose ceremony was a bit nonsensical from a viewers perspective. I guess I’m becoming tainted because I think they want certain guys around to build drama and bring in ratings. Otherwise, why would Justin and Kasey receive a rose while Jesse was sent home?
Jesse poor guy never even had a chance for Ali to get to know him. I think he deserved more of a chance than those two clowns, but I suppose he was to “normal” to keep the ratings high.
I was over-joyed that the whiny, insecure, Weatherman, Jonathan went home. He should have been gone after the first night. He is a little goober and entirely too goofy for Ali.
The remaining bachelors who received roses were Chris L., Frank, Kirk, Craig, Chris N, Justin, Ty, Kasey (?), and Roberto.
I’m adjusting my predictions for the final four based on the following.
Chris N. has been virtually invisible I expect her to give him his shot on a one-on-one date. If only two go home next week he may stay. It all depends on when the drama breaks about Justin’s girlfriends. One of the two will go home next week.
It will also be time to send Kasey boy packing.
Roberto isn’t going anywhere…..ever. Ty, Chris L. or Kirk, and Frank will be in the final four with Ali.
Craig R. or Justin, whoever lasts the longest, will be dropped like a cool water balloon on a hot summer day, as well.
It is going to be a long and lonely trip for the bachelors to fly home from some distant exotic destination alone.
Come back next week for an updated recap, review, and opinionated perspective about the Bachelorette, 2010, and find out who makes that flight.
