The Bachelor – Episode One

Did anyone catch this mistake on the episode of The Bachelor last Monday?

Being the huge tech junkie that I am of course I would be the one to notice the screw up they made when one of the girls on The Bachelor, Linzi C., showed her iPhone when sharing the story of how she got dumped by her last boyfriend. Right away I was like, “Oh my God, that is SO wrong!” (Too bad no one was listening.) Anyone who has an iPhone knows that the messages that you send are in green or blue on the right and the messages you receive are in white on the left. So here she is trying to pretend that she received a message that was on the wrong side of her phone when obviously she typed it herself. I’m not blaming Linzi, I mean I am sure it was producers that told her to do it. Humor is found in many forms on this show. I have been a huge fan since the very first season!

The Bachelor Ben ---- mistakes!!

(I also caught that Amber T. said she was 28, but the screen said she was 29. I imagine she just had a birthday since the show was recorded, but they should have just had it match what she said.)

I was going to make videos each week on my thoughts on The Bachelor but I changed my mind. Instead I will just share some thoughts I had after watching the first episode of Ben’s season of The Bachelor.

First, my thoughts on Ben. I didn’t really care for Ben when he was on Ashley’s season of The Bachelorette. He seemed very dull and boring to me and I didn’t find him attractive at all. I felt like he would have been a very loyal boyfriend, a great provider and future father, but so BORING. I bet life with him would get pretty repetitive quickly. It seemed like Ashley was interested in him intellectually, but there was no spark in my opinion. Ashely definitely made the best choice with JP. Not that I wasn’t feeling bad for Ben when he was rejected. I felt like that was the most honest and real rejection scene ever on any season of The Bachelor. The way Ben didn’t want to hear Ashley’s excuses and how he spoke his mind, that was so honest and heartbreaking. One thing I will give Ben, he is a total straight arrow and I respect him for that. I just hope he acts a little more enthusiastic this time around.

Now my thoughts on some of my favorite girls.

Courtney – The Model. It’s obvious she is going to be the villain this season. She is incredibly gorgeous, but also seems very intelligent and it appears as though she is used to having to stick up for herself. She talks very defensively at times. I want to hate her, but I don’t. Her voice is so sexy when she talks to Ben and boy is she a smooth talker and Ben is just smitten.

Kacie B – The Geek. My first impression of Kacie is she is very vulnerable and will fall for Ben pretty quickly. She is presenting herself as the dorky silly girl and it seems pretty accurate. I am most excited about seeing her and Ben on dates, I bet there will be a lot of cheesy moments between these two.

Emily – The Germ Expert. She seems so bubbly and down to earth. She definitely came onto the show with a plan – show off her intelligence, her quirky side, and her beauty. Well played Emily.

Linzi C. – The Horse Girl. I didn’t like her at first. Her intro seemed a little strange and I didn’t connect with her right away. However her one on one time with Ben changed my thoughts. She seems sincere and truly interested in getting to know Ben.

Nicki – The Divorced One. I am on the fence with Nicki. She seems sweet and very sincere, but I don’t think she is being herself. She appeared as though she was trying really hard to impress Ben and it came across a little fake. Hopefully when she gets some one on one time with Ben she will be more at ease.

Jamie – The Sob Story. She grew up without a dad and her mom had dependency issues so she raised her siblings. The story was a little too much sappiness for 13 minutes into the show, but I guess it is who she is. She seems like a really nice caring, responsible girl and they way the producers introduced her makes it impossible not to like her. I’m looking for her to show some personality though.So far I just seen a lot of nervousness. I’ll be surprised if she sticks around for very long.

Some other comments…

Jenna – The Blogger. She needs to tone down the orange makeup or tanning or something. She wants to fall in love and get married like yesterday. The producers might ask Ben to keep her around just for drama, but I don’t think Ben will develop feelings for her. Just too high maintenance for him. Their conversation so far as been very awkward and uncomfortable to watch. On the plus side, her voice sounds exactly like Annabella Sciorra from Hand the Rocks the Cradle.

Brittney – The Granddaughter. That whole story line was stupid in my opinion. And when Grandma cried in the limo on the way home – Classic.

Blakely – The Old Woman. I shouldn’t crack, I am older than her, but she a strange one. Her crazy arm tattoo made me think she would be perfect for Vienna’s ex – Kasey!

Anna – The Gorgeous Blond. She was the girl that walked right past Ben when getting out of the limo and didn’t introduce herself. She was gorgeous yet we didn’t get to see her much and Ben sent her packing.

My Votes:
Prettiest- Courtney or Anna
Best Personality – Kaycie B.
Cutest Dress – Brittney
Most Dramatic – Jenna
Craziest – Monica
Best Hair – Elyse
Worst Dress – Erika

Of course I am hooked as always after the first episode. This season looks like it will be full of drama, lots of tears, beautiful locations, and as always a surprise guest.

    I think this is going to be the season with the most drama, which is funny because Ben is the most boring person they’ve ever had on the show!

      They always have a way of making it look so dramatic, but we will see. Last week was pretty boring other than big boobs hiding in the corner. That was hilarious!! Ben is SO boring!
