This bachelorette makes me want to pull a Mesnick

Sorry my recap is a day late, but honestly, I tried, I really tried to watch the season premier and blog about it yesterday, but I just couldn’t get into it! I was so pumped to watch the first episode of the Bachelorette with America’s Sweetheart Ali, on Monday night, but I struggled, I really struggled. Ali is by far one of the most annoying people I have ever watched on TV. With her silly giggle, tense shoulders, and fake hair, I just couldn’t come up with a great re-cap ala last year’s On the Wings of Love.

So to keep it interesting (unlike Monday nights season premier) I’ve decided on a new format for my Bachelor/Bachelorette recaps…I hope you enjoy.

My hopes for this season’s Bachelorette: America’s Sweetheart

1. I hope that Ali finds a hairbrush this season.
2. I hope that ABC will not show her “pouty” face more than three times an episode
3. I hope that we won’t have to hear over and over and over again about how Ali messed up last season by choosing her career over the man of her dreams.
4. I hope that Ali doesn’t bug the crap out of me, as predicted, because if she does I will totally lose interest this season
5. I hope to see lots of buff guys making fools of themselves on national television…face it, it’s just good blog material.

Hunter, 28

Ali may be impressed with this group of yahoo’s, I , on the other hand, think they are the biggest group of cheese balls I think I have ever seen…this could be a rough season for the He Who Laughs Last crew.

Overall thoughts of the Evening

Ali, (upon entering the cocktail party for the first time)“like thank you so much for allowing me to come here tonight, like let’s get this party started…OMG” ok, maybe I overexaggerated this a little, but just a little.

Kirk made her a scrapbook based on all of the things that meant the world to him, apparently there was macramé involved as well as a picture of his mom….hmmmm?

Roberto is my definite front runner and Chris H. is a very close second.

Someone needs to shut down the weatherman (aka. Ron Burgundy) like a bad ferris wheel.

The following statement from the outdoorsman kind of creeped me out, “I’m thinking of taking that first impression rose and eating it, that way it would be in my soul forever.”

The following statement from a heckler in the group when R-Rated was called out for some alone time with Ali, “you can’t go wrong with a broken leg. The sympathy card is the way to get a girl.”

Lesson of the week:

If you tell a girl the story of your experience with pre-mature ejaculation in college upon first meeting her, you will surely be going home alone.


  1. Oh my hell! I've been sitting laughing out loud while I read this! It's almost like you looked into MY head when you wrote some of these. I don't think I'll be able to stomach this season. (And, I only saw bits and pieces of the show, because it just didn't hold my interest AT ALL!) I seriously said #1-4 on your list (almost word-for-word!) to my best friend yesterday. Great minds think alike.... :) I'm sending her a link to this post right now!

  2. Ali was soooooo annoying. The men are predictable. Don't know if I can do this again. I will have to watch next Monday and see how I feel then...:)

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Ali needs to brush her hair!

    I could only watch this with a glass of wine in one hand and an oreo cookie in the other. Ali = not my favorite Bachelorette ever. Or even in the top 3/4.

    By the by - first time commenter, been reading - and laughing - for awhile though. :)

  4. I never have watched the Bachelor type shows. (Well, confession...I did watch all 3 seasons of Rock of Love...can't stand Bret Michaels...but it was just too dang hilarious not to watch!)

    What was I saying?

    Oh..yea...the dude who made the scrapbook?? Um...screams "metrosexual"...and personally...that is just too weird. ::shudder:: I want a big strong beefy man who thinks my scrapbooking is cute and girlie but knows absolutely nothing about how to and definitely doesn't know what macrame is!

  5. I haven't watched it yet and I'm thinking I might just go ahead and hit delete in my DVR! This is the only season where i've missed an episode. I keep swearing this show off, and then it always sucks me back in!!!

  6. I sort of kind of watched it, but had such a hard time getting into it. I am trying out new shows since everything is ending for the season.

    Roberto was my fave too, in the little bit I watched. =)

    Frank stuck out too. I think he is annoying enough that they might be great together.

  7. i think i need to start watching the bachelorette.

    btw, i gave you a little bloggy award on my blog today. =D

  8. This is the biggest group of dweebs I've ever seen assembled! I do like Roberto, Shooter was incredibly dumb, and Hunter reminded me of Forrest Gump with that "I gotta pee".

  9. Give this woman an award for perseverance!! The fact that you're willing to nickname the bachelors and then watch each deserve some type of award!! Hope you don't mind me catching up on it via your blog!!
