Bachelorette Emily — And so another season begins

WE ARE BACK PEOPLE!  Get ready.  Get pumped and someone get me a drink because Emily is dainty, cute and ready to find love or a part-time “on the scene” reporter gig at Good Morning America and she’s not afraid to take Little Ricki with her.

The recap will be up as soon as I slip into something more pink, inject a little BOTOX and brush up on the “making a good first impression” chapter of the latest Emily Post.  Until then, feel free to read my mini recap over at the Huffington Post by clicking HERE!

As always, I’m anxious to hear your thoughts on last night’s suitors.  Let ’em have it in the comment section!

all i have to say is that the fact that there are TWO alejandro/alesssandros made my night! i don’t like either of them, but, c’mon – what are the odds???

favorites: sean, charlie, arie and the football player who wore the pink tie (can’t remember his name???)

A million bonus points for the “Electric Boogaloo” reference. Seriously almost spit my coffee out on my keyboard.
Agree with your first impressions (as usual), and also found Jef with one f interesting with his Jimmy Neutron hair and skateboard. And the only way I can imagine that he makes her feel “not cool” is because he looks (and acts) like he could be Ricki’s older brother.
And minus a million bonus points to Doug the Dad for using his son as his wingman (although well-played. Well-played).
I liked Ryan, the former pro athlete-turned mentor who runs with small kids as well as his dog.
And Kalon is trouble. I have a feeling he’s the Courtney.
As always, IHGB is the first place I check on Tuesdays!

Aside from Jef being one of the worst skateboarders on national television, I like him. The Conan-hipster hair, the skinny jeans in Utah, the clean drinking water. I think his little hip heart is going to get trampled, which more than sucks.
Charlie is my favorite… funny, life changing back story. It beats killer mold and look how far maturity by mold brought Kurt.
As for our Kalon, he has a bad guy name by soap opera standards and he is an obvious liar. His Dallas footage has more tells than having a Pinocchio nose. He must be an awful poker player.

80% of them were selected out of ABC’s giant tool bag. I expected them to roll out the creme de la creme for Emily, but nope. Even the show expects these relationships to fail, so better to go for ratings in the meantime I guess.

Tool bag is RIGHT, Lindsay….

you are off to a great start. you nailed it with you HuffPost! Can’t wait for the full recap. (although, I really only tuned in while the guys were introducing themselves…I had better things (words with friends) to do with my attention span!

“tool bag” ha ha ha! spot on!

I think my fave part was Emily’s spinning around to meet the bachelors as they entered. She’s got twirling down to an art!!

I was so not impressed last night. I was cringing! LOL! I do like that guy, Charlie…and I believe she is already smitten with Arie the racecar driver. Good luck to Emily! She is going to need it! However, I don’t feel too bad for her…she is the one that said she didn’t want to be in the “limelight” and then suddenly changed her mind to find love on this show AGAIN!

Ryan and Charlie are pretty much the only ones I recall offhand (ammendment….recall positively) because they seemed A) jaw-droppingly gorgeous and B) mentally stable/not embarrassing.

I can’t decide if I think Jef(f) is just trying to promote his clean water initiative or not. I’ll hope not.

I feel like dancing machine Jandro will be this season’s Miss Pacific Palisades.

Oh, my. Where to begin? ABC sure picked some doozies for our dainty southern belle! There were a handful of guys I was vaguely impressed with (read: not entirely appalled by), most of whose names I cannot remember at present time. I was sad to see the only man of color go home on the first night, especially because he was so pretty to look at. I think Doug will go far, and am curious to see if the guy she tells to “get the f*ck out” is Kalon (as the ABC editing team expects us to believe) or if it’s someone she had an immediately strong connection with, like Arie. Did anyone else’s love for Emily skyrocket when they showed the “get the f*ck out” clip, by the way? Mine sure did.

In other news, my roommate and I will be drinking every time Emily says “golly” this season. I think we are in for some sloppy Monday nights, and some rough Tuesday mornings…

Can’t wait to read your recaps – this is my first season following you.

Tier 1:
Ryan – hot guy, ex pro football, what’s not to like?
Ari – Indy driver, not my type but when he spoke, I liked him a lot.
Jeff – skateboard guy, please fix your hair!
Tony – I like him, can’t remember why, not very cute

Tier 2:
Doug – first impression – 12yr old boy who wrote note
Charlie – balcony fall dude
John – “wolf”
Michael – dude cut your hair!
Stevie – hates copter dude
Travis – egg dude
Sean – blonde spikey – no clue

Tier 3:
Chris – who? not a fan, yuck
Kalon – Helicopter guy
Nate – no clue, yuck
Joe – embarassing dance from limo – not the boombox
Kyle – no clue, yuck
Aaron – Biology teacher, “we have Chemistry”
Alejandro – spanish dude
Alessandro – Brazil Neanderthal

A friend of a friend from Houston told me that one of the guys this season is definitely gay & just along for the very fun ride! Oh & he has a “unique” name.

Kalon is from Houston, not Dallas, by the way.

Arie was my initial favorite when looking at the head shots on ABC’s website, and he was my still my favorite after the show last night! I love his blue eyes. I think he and Emily will have a lot in common. My prediction is that he will go far (fantasy suite, maybe???) this season.

I have complained bitterly from time to time that this show is just too darned long, but I was complaining last night that they smashed the critical “first impression” show into way too short a time! I was having trouble keeping track of who is who, and that rose ceremony had to break some kind of Bachelor/ette record for speed.

Arie is clearly the one she is most smitten with – me too! First impression guy/girl is almost never F1. I liked Jef, but contestants from Salt Lake City have not done well (read – have proven to be borderline insane) on prior shows.

Looking forward to see what mischief helicopter guy can pull off, or maybe just read about it here. Don’t know if I can stand watching this season, although maybe with ‘fast forward’ I can struggle through 🙂

Can we talk professions? I’m debating whether “luxury brand manager” or “mushroom farmer from the heart of Colombian cocaine country” is a less legitimate job description.

Also, the shot of the egg trembling in egg boy’s hand was one of the greatest filming coups on this hot mess ever.
