Bring On The Hometown Dates

Does anyone else feel like Monday night's episode of The Bachelor was a bit of a letdown? Where were all the hate words and cat fights? Oh yeah, the booger-biter and macho-man went home last week. How could I have forgotten! It's too bad because there was a definite drop in the drama. I guess things are finally gonna get serious as Jason narrows down his dating pool. That sounds terrible, but what a great show!

All that aside, I must admit I was deeply touched when Jason shared his genuine care and respect for Stephanie as he kindly declined to give her a rose. It's apparent that he did the right thing, but I really feel for the woman. She might have gone a little overboard on the botox and eyebrow waxing, but that mom has got a heart of gold. I truly wish her all the best in her quest to find a husband.

So, onto the hometown dates we go. I can't wait for Jason to be "out and about" in Alberta, Canada with Jillian and her family as they enjoy the Great White North! Of course it'll be interesting to see how Jason likes Grand Rapids Michigan and meeting Molly's Mom and Dad. Oh, and poor Melissa who will be taking Jason to Dallas, Texas to meet...her best friends? How sad for her. And I'm a little worried for Jason to hang out with Naomi and her nutty mother and dead pigeon in Carlsbad, California. This should be interesting. Who do you think's getting booted next?

I love that you and one of my other girlfriends ballardbunch.blogspot.com always do a recap on Tues. of the Bachelor. It was a let down last night and I'm still rootin for Jillian. I too have a special spot for Canadians. . . I married one!

I know, NO drama. They're all so nice to each other now. It seemed like they wanted to stir up some things with the "on air" date, but nope. They're all still so nice to eachother.

I'm still rootin' for Molly. I think it's Naomi or Melissa going home next. My hunch says Naomi,but Melissa has not opened up a TON.

We shall see!

All I can say is I dedicate the Nickelback song, "Gotta Be Somebody" to this show! Every time I hear it on the radio - I think of this show...
Naomi is going next...

Evonne said...

Fingers crossed that it's Naomi. I just don't see that one lasting in "family mode".

Great recaps! I'm glad we connected through Amanda. :) I think we've even met before way back in the day at Windsor Park...but I could be wrong.

Naomi has got to be the next to go! I think that he is a little worried after what she said about her parents...if she has even a little piece of her mom in her, I'd be worried. What a freak with the dead bird! Melissa is my #1...I think she is so dang cute and I love her smile! Kev got home from the gym at 9 and the boys were still up cause I couldn't stop watching! I think that's the only show I watch "live" cause I am so excited! Miss u!

haha, I was so surprised he kept Naomi. We all thought he was giving the "i'm not into you" vibe SO strong.

ps, i love you and i'm keeping my eyes open for a man for you too!

Laura said...

Poor Steph - she's not for Jason, but like you said, she has the biggest heart! I hope she finds someone awesome out of all of this.

Naomi is next... I hope! Dead dove? Yuck.

Kristen Elizabeth said...

I will openly admit I am an opinionated brat about this show! I love Jillian, Melissa and Stephanie! I was so sad when he said goodbye to her! I totally did not see it working out with the two of them but she is such a sweet heart! I really wish I could give her a make under though!
Jillian and Melissa better make into to the end that is all I have to say! Molly bugs me a little bit after last weeks episode with how proud she was of her walk of shame. Who is proud of a walk of shame? Nobody that is why they are called a walk of shame. Naomi I just cannot see them together. I love Melissa and Jillian! They are both so nice and fun! Sorry for my ramblings! I love the bachelor!

Ash and Christian said...

For some reason I'm really not a fan of Melissa. I think it's her laugh - it bugs me.

Jillian for sure and then Molly as runner-up. I was really sad about Stephanie getting the ax. Can we make her the Bachelorette?

See ya Naomi. Close, but no cigar.

p.s. I love logging on on Tuesdays to read your commentary. Keep it up.

Bracken and Bracken said...

I still really like Melissa, I hope her parents don't blow it for her. So rude that the producers probably won't let him go to her house without the cameras :( I hope Naomi goes home!! And yay for Stephanie, I hope she finds a good man or the church!! Cute collage by the way.

Ry and Britt Devine said...

Amen to everything you said. Melissa is in a tough spot with her parents. I don't think he'll give her the boot though b/c she can't help it.......we shall see.

IzeOfLight said...

I can't stand Naomi (her comment about being on a helicopter as she got off a SMALL PLANE--isn't she a flight attendant?), so I hope she goes next. I'm rooting for Jillian and Melissa for the final two and I'd be thrilled if either one won, but I'm thinking it's going to be Melissa.

Townsend Family said...

Gotta chime in!!! I agree with someone above that said Melissa's laugh is annoying. Bugs me too. But I do like her. Jillian I love (not just because I adore her name) but she seems the most real. Molly bugs me because I think she tries too hard to say the right things. She's more in love with the whole idea, than really with him. And Naomi........ I think her time is running thin. And I'm sure that after the dead pigeon scenario he will realize that. Poor thing. My question is - WHEN IS DEANNA COMING BACK?????? Maybe it is after all the home town dates, but I can not WAIT to hear what she has to say. It's gonna be goooood. She really screwed THAT up! OK ok ... none of you know me, but there's my input!!

Erica said...

jillian's #1. sneaky trying to look like she was going to bail on jason's affection. disgusted w/ the 24 year old scene and being "ready" to be a mom.

melissa- annoying, you are not perfect or too good to be true for jason

molly- you're too confident. get some humility in yourself.

naomi- are you late for your hip hop video?
