If a shark attacks you…
Tuesday night, 7:00 p.m. CST
THIS JUST IN…
I’ve just received an email from Our Host Chris Harrison confirming that ABC will INDEED air a Women Tell All episode next Tuesday after the final rose on Monday. Andy, the one he chooses, the one he doesn’t and all the crazies will be there with bells on. It’s going to be wonderfully amazing!
I’m not going to lie…I thought Bevin was done last night. But the ABC trickeration continues to get the best of me and I am proud to announce that I haven’t a clue which gal will become Mrs. Dr. Lieutenant Andy Baldwin!
The following information you are about to read is of personal opinion. If this e-mail circulates to friends, family, enemies…that is your business. However, if you or someone in your address book happens to personally know, sort of know, know the brother/cousin of, thought you saw in the grocery store buying Spring Oreos and Spaghetti O’s or have a spin instructor that looks exactly like one of the Bachelorettes on the show…none of this is personal and I’m sure they are all lovely people.
Unfortunately, Andy was unable to ship “his” DeLorean or “his” yacht to Hawaii. After a quick surf, he jumps in his Jeep Wrangler and heads down to the Pearl Harbor Memorial.
Bevin arrives in a cute red tube top. Andy feels an electromagnetic current literally go through his body as he places an Aloha lei around her neck. He takes her to gaze over the USS Arizona below the Memorial and shows her the oil coming up to the surface…the black tears of Pearl Harbor. They begin a serious conversation about what it takes to be a Navy wife when suddenly, Andy feels a jolt.
At first he is confused in thinking that the electricity he literally feels for Bev has literally shocked him. But then he notices the ABC intern jumping up and down waving his arms and remembers he was given a beeper to remind him that TIME IS UP! He takes Bev by the arm. She gets the wrong idea and wraps her legs around his waist. He promises that he will see her soon. The ABC intern starts to hyperventilate because Bevin is about to ruin everything and his only job was to get her away from Andy after 22 minutes. He shoves her in the limo, runs back to Andy handing him a fresh flower lei, adjusts his hat, spit shines his shoes and performs a quick once over with a lint brush just as Danielle’s limo pulls up.
SO CLOSE INTERN!
We learn that Dani’s grandmother was a nurse during Pearl Harbor. In a salute to Grandma, Dani is wearing a vintage blue and white dress from the 40s, complete with matching pearls and hair style. No earrings though, because people in the 40s didn’t have their ears pierced. They gaze over the USS Arizona and notice the black tears….again. Andy is in the middle of a monotone soliloquy about peace, hope, strength and leis when he feels another jolt. Remembering that it is only Bevin who provides literal voltage to his loins, he cuts the speech short, delivers Dani to the intern, returns to his post at the Pearl Harbor Memorial entrance, receives his third fresh flower lei and ponders what to say to Tess because the speech Chris Harrison wrote out for him is getting kind of old.
Tess arrives. Peace, strength, hope, black tears, yadda, yadda, yadda. He takes her to the edge of the Memorial and suggests that they toss their flowers over the edge in memory of those who lost their lives at Pearl Harbor. Very sweet.
Enter random, faceless redhead little girl.
Andy offers some of his lei petals. She throws them overboard with reckless abandon. We hear a voiceover of Andy saying this is like foreshadowing of his wife with their little girl one day.
I couldn’t help but feel a little sad for Andy. If I had a hat, I’d tip it to you just as you saluted the USS Arizona when you left for your first fantasy date in Hawaii.

Before the rose ceremony, Andy confesses to the camera that he is confused. And when his big brain can’t handle any more stress, he and his muscles go jogging. His poor eight pack is worn out! But even this doesn’t help!
So he calls his friend Great Gatsby, fellow triathlete, to come help make heads or tails of this game we call The Bachelor: An Officer and a Gentleman.
Great Gatsby wants to know about the girls.
Tess is light-hearted, playful and smart.
Dani is solid and nurturing.
I have an electric chemistry current with Bevin, but she’s liberal.
The Great Gatsby, sensing a crisis, helps his friend, the only way he knows how.
“Who would you like to see at the end of the finish line at a triathlon?”
Yes. That is the true question.
He envisions Tessa with the random, faceless little redhead girl running to greet him at the finish line with open light-hearted arms and a sweet peck kiss.
He envisions Dani with a strong confident stride, embracing his waist with a look of peace and hope as she turns to wave to the cheering crowd.
He envisions Bev behind closed doors for a celebratory romp in the sack afterwards.
To my surprise, Danielle is sent home. I admit. I was tricked! I bought the drama. CURSES TO THE EVIL EDITORS OF ABC!!!
Next week, we meet Andy’s Pennsylvania family. Both girls proclaim their love for our dear Bachelor: An Officer and a Gentleman.
If our conservative Andy picks liberal Bevin, I will be very surprised.
All about the shame, not the fame,
I actually took notes last night for this. Here’s my semi-short/sweet interpretation of what I saw last night…
Day with Tessa: Andy pretends little girl is his. Paper, rock, scissors. “You first b/c you lost!” Zip line! Our relationship is like a bridge! Cartwheel! Powhana! Punch a shark in the face! Tessa’s protecting herself..still. Tough questions ahead. “Oh my God we’re on a hammock…under a tree!” Will you accept this sushi? Forgo card! “Say no more!”
Day with Danielle: Dolphins. Whales! Cheesy music. Dead boyfriend. Love Lifts Us Up. Procreation. Dead boyfriend. Psychic. Forgo card! Procreation. Loss.
Day with Bevin: “Ohmigod!” Cows. Kayak. Crotch shot. Electricity. “Holy cow!” Tats. Mild porn. Andy thinks about Tessa. Fire dancers! “Oh cool!” Electricity. Passion. Divorce, divorce, divorce. “I appreciate your words.” Andy asks if she’d like to sleep with Chris Harrison, doh, him, via the forgo card. Bevin: “We’re only talking tonight, no nooky…oh…wait…is that strawberries and champagne?” Special.
Andy time: Jog. Definitely has weird abs. Help, Gatsby! Tessa has doubts. Danielle’s boyfriend died. Gatsby is in love with Andy. Bevin’s electric and divorced. “Whose at the finish line with your love child at the end of the triathlon?” Gatsby and Andy still clueless. Cheers.
Rose Ceremony: Chris Harrison shows women where to stand. One. By. One. Andy and women puke, but it’s not aired. Two roses left, which means someone’s getting booted! Bevin. Tessa! Danielle’s boyfriend died. Chris Harrison is sorry. Andy thinks Danielle is amazing…as a friend. Breaking up is hard to do, it’s just like, really hard.
Off to Pennsylvania! “Awesome!”
great post Lincee. great episode last night. who names their child after a book? they’re totally lovers. 🙂
bevin and andy kissing in the dirty, dirty water was about the grossest thing i’ve ever seen.
After Andy’s date with Tessa, I have decided that I like Drunk Andy a little better than regular Andy. Man, that guy sure likes to stare at chests.
I love that you took notice of Bev coming up out of the water like a boy and messing up her hair! I said the exact same thing out loud to the tv!
The penis fish!!!!! I had never heard of such a thing up until about three months ago – first in reference to the guy that swam the Amazon (and didn’t encounter the fish), its appearance on Grey’s Anatomy, and now Lincee’s blog. Love it!
Did anyone else notice Bevin was without the shoulder tattoo while on the USS Arizona? The ABC intern must have worked very hard covering that up with makeup.
Cheesy bathtub scene for Tessa, cheesy psychic scene for Danielle, and cheesy backside scenes with Bevin — enough already!
I’m sure Bevin is a nice lady, but somehow she’s coming off as a tramp, and I don’t think it’s just editing by ABC.
And it WAS a surprise that Dani was sent home — apart from having to listen to beating the dead boyfriend ad nauseum, Andy seemed enthusiastic.
Pet peeve #1:
girls who wear strapless tops and then keep pulling and tugging at them all the time.
Pet peeve #2:
the word “AWESOME”.
Pet peeve #3:
the fact that all the girls act suprised when he pulls out the forgo card when we know they have all seen at least one season of the bachelor and know exactly what “that card” for Our Host Chris Harrison says.
Just once, when the forgo card comes out, I want one of the girls to say “This must be the forgo card from host Chris. Sure, I’ll go to the fantasy suite with you”.
What is going on with the horrible rose ceremony dresses? Last week and this week, most of the girls were wearing awful dresses. Did Bevin think she was going to a tea party?
Poor Danielle – she seems so nice, but she really needs to stop talking about the dead boyfriend. She seems so normal. Hopefully she will find electricity with an awesome guy.
I was tricked too. I can’t believe Bevin is still standing. Wait tell Andy’s parents check out the tats!
Can’t wait for the finale! Lancaster, PA here we come!
Loved the multiple choice post- very clever!
Sad to say that all my ramblings about Danielle being the underdog and black horse were incorrect- well I’m mad! I liked her and thought she was the best for him- maybe not the most dramatic- but the best. She’s probably the FIRST in the History of the bachelor not to sob uncontrollably, cuss, or say anything bad about the guy she just supposedly was in love with. If that doesn’t clue you in to her true feelings… I don’t know what does!
Not sure I really care if Like-Tessa will win or if Bevin will. My lovely husband pointed out a few things-
A) Rebel Bevin probably has ex hubby’s name tatted on her body- somewhere.
B) Hope Andy doesn’t pee in the water- good catch Lincee- Seriously- true Grey’s Anatomy Fan!!
I totally thought that Andy and Tessa did NOT have on bathing suit bottoms in the tub. Why else would they walk in with robes on when all the other times there were hot tub scenes- there were no robes. She only had to have the top on to show that she had something on- it came off as soon as the cameras left.
Poor Danielle- she got sloppy seconds in the recycled fantasy suite. I noticed the fireplace was the same and that they hardly showed the rest of the room. It had to be the same one.
Next week should be interesting- what religion is Bevin?
**note** ABC 13 News in Houston had a behind the scenes on after the show. Our BFF Erica from last season was on there along with one of the barbie twins from Houston- must see!
If Tessa says, “…like” one more time, I’m going to stop watching the show. It is horrendous. Even though she appears to be an incredibly smart girl it makes her sound soo sooo dumb.
Dirty water, that’s all about that. Ugh. I’d be pissed if that was my date. Nice shout out to the stripper tat. We all about lost it when it spanned to her back. Must have decided to get that about the time she married the 16 year old Jiffy Lube attendant.
Dani’s face was priceless when the fortune teller (who used a deck of playing cards, not even Tarot cards) said she was still reeling over a serious loss. Duh. She hasn’t stopped talking about her dead boyfriend since she got there.
I wish Bev and Andy would jump in the sack and get it over with. Love will lift us up where we belong song montage. Unbelieveably cheesy.
Andy is the cheesiest toolbag of a Bachelor since the show’s inception. He’s pretty to look at, most of the time, as long as he doesn’t open his mouth. Good Lord!
Anyone notice that at the (second and) final rose Chris did NOT come out to announce it as the final? A precedent is broken, at long last!
Great recap, thank you so much for being the best thing about Tuesday mornings!
Real quick- did anyone else notice how strange it was that ABC kept showing Tessa being all coy “I don’t know” about the fantasy suite in the commercials and the ‘after the break’ spots, but then when the time came, there was no hesitation! Holy ABC editing!
whoever commented about the dressed in the rose ceremony- I agree-
WTF- the past seasons the girls are always dressed so great- did ABC fire their stylist?
Forgot to mention Bevin whipping around her hair like a guy. NO girl does that. That was just strange…
I thought that when I saw the previews.
I totally thought Bev was going home. Or maybe it was just wishful thinking, who knows. But Dani wasn’t right for him either. My vote is for Tessa, has anyone else noticed that he kisses her non stop, about 100x more than the other girls? Humm…. I think there’s something there. GREAT Recap Lincee, sooooo funny, especially the penis fish, thw second round to the hospital for the two of them would have been much more comical!
