Pass the mustard…I like the hot dog girl!

From Lincee:

Hello there friends! Who knew Melba toast would get saucy and kiss a bunch of girls in the second episode? Go Jason!  Too bad I’m in the piney woods of East Texas and can’t write the recap this morning. I’ll be driving around Louisiana today in 30 degree weather without a coat. You may feel sorry for me.

In the meantime, use the comment section to discuss last night’s episode. I’ll get you started: do you feel that a scarf paired with a tank top is in the same fashion category as wearing Uggs with shorts?

Don’t forget to check out my boy Chris Harrison’s blog on Entertainment Weekly’s website.

Recap coming tonight. Have a great day!

Melba toast has always been good with toppings added…I guess one might have to experiment with several different “dips” to determine which one is tastiest with that toast!

Why, yes, Lincee, I DO feel that a scarf paired with a tank top is in the same fashion category as wearing Uggs with shorts!! Also, pedicure salon flip flops with jeans and a sweater is in that category – saw that yesterday at the Marshall’s store. Some places are too good to stay away from, even if you just got your toeseys done and it’s only 38 degrees outside, I guess. But anyway….

I am glad that Raquel is gone, as she seemed a little spooky to me even before the sneak in the limo scene.

Stephanie is too nice (Southern girl polite) and needs to be a bit more of a prankster with Jason – silly and goofy – or she’ll be cursed to sympathetic friend, bless her heart for what she’s been through status forever.

I understand other commenters (and feel this way too) being shocked that Erica and some others are still in the game – but as in years past, I have to remind myself that the producers only let the Bachelor send home a certain number of girls per week. Don’t you know, at times, that the contestant is thinking, “I could narrow this down to four right now!! Send these other @#$% home today!!”

I figured that Megan and Erica would be history, but then that would leave very little drama. I wonder who’ll throw the first punch…

The scarf and the t-shirt made me do a double-take. My guess is that she asked the other girls for their advice and they totally threw her under the bus on that little fashion mishap.

Looking forward to your recap!

I was impressed by Jason last night and I too love the hot dog girl. She seems to be the right amount of fun without being crazy. I also like Nikki, although I was concerned when we first saw her made up in her crown. I loved last night when they were talking and Jason told her she had lovely qualities and the camerman was zooming in on her chest!! Another name for those puppies. Stephanie is really sweet and I like her too. And it is not because I’m an Alabama girl. But I don’t want to see her get hurt. I hope that if Jason sees her as just a friend he tells her early.

Shannon is wicked crazy and needs to go before his rabbit ends up being boiled!! I put Natalie in that category too. I couldn’t believe she was already crying at this stage. And Lauren is too spoiled for me to take. i don’t see that lasting very long if she needs that much attention!

I too like hot dog girl. Also I love Chris Harrison – from his blog “Our little Jason, quiet, little shy Jason got four kisses in one week. Well played, sir…well played! I mean how dare you, sir, how dare you!”.

Can’t wait for the recap!

Can someone PLEASE PLEASE tells these girls that the side ponytail went out inthe 80’s and that if they MUST wear one they can only do so with a pair of leggings and a terrycloth headband. Jeez!

January 13, 2009 12:05 pm

Yeah, I noticed the zooming in on Nikki’s chest when Jason was talking about her “qualities”, too. She certainly has no qualms about putting them on display.
I feel like I should be on Molly’s side since she’s from my hometown, but I have to admit she’s a little annoying.
No one’s mentioned Melissa – she seems like a sweet girl. And Stephanie is awfully sweet, too. She seems light years more mature than most of the girls. That may blow up in her face, though – she may not be “fun” enough for Jason.
Can’t believe he didn’t can Megan, Erica and Shannon last night – they ALL need to go

Last nights episode had plenty of great moments, but my favorite had to be in the preview for next week’s episode. Did anyone else notice the complete headbutt Stephanie gave her little girl when she ran to greet her on the beach?!?! Is it mean that I played it in slow-mo several times?

Straight hilarious.

living in northwest indiana where the temp is currently 15 degrees, but feels like 2 degrees, with snow and sometimes blizzard like conditions, I don’t understand why people pair scarves with tank tops because I live in a land where scarves are a necessity not really a fashion thing.
I was surprised when he let Raquel go…what guy doesn’t want a hott Brazilian chick?

January 13, 2009 12:11 pm

Thank you SOO much for mentioning Chris Harrison’s blog! How have I never heard of that one? It was very very funny.

Ali, I noticed the headbutt too! But I’m glad it looks like Stephanie and Jason have a great beach date.
I love this show.

#3 I noticed the camera zoom too, and laughed out loud!

Perhaps the scarf with the tanktop was Melissa trying an alternative to a jacket. Too bad it didn’t work. Did anyone else notice Jillian’s silver zipper on her black dress?? It bugged me the whole time they were dancing.

But the funniest thing for me had to be courtesy of the ABC intern. Did you see what they used to prop up all the notes left at the door? I swear it was a pop bottle cap. Seriously, couldn’t they find a nice polished stone or something? Maybe the intern spent all the budget on hotdogs…

Still cheering for Jillian and Melissa, though I’m starting to like Nikki more and more. Erica and Natalie and Molly all bug me. And Shannon is over the top!

Just my two cents.

January 13, 2009 12:19 pm

I couldn’t take my eyes off of Nikki’s sideburns last night, I mean what the????? Oh and does anyone else think she looks a little bit like Michael Jackson??

January 13, 2009 12:22 pm

Out here in California scarves with two or more tank tops, poured-into jeans and flip flops are a way of life, and for many people WAY too old to be wearing what has become a silly “uniform” — what’s really absurd is when you see young business women in suits with flip flops (presumably) going back and forth to work. And frankly, while we don’t have the burrrr weather many other places have, wearing this stuff in 50 degrees looks really ridiculous.

Given that Raquel’s first language is Portuguese, it was obvious (particularly to those of us who’ve taught English in Brasil) that her first comment to Jason when he got into the car was translated directly from her head to her mouth — which means that sometimes it sounds strange in English, as it clearly did to him. There’s no question she’s a lovely woman, but sometimes the translated word doesn’t work, as in her case. I’m sorry she wasn’t given a better chance — she beats the hell ouf of Erica and Shannon!

January 13, 2009 12:22 pm

I (and my husband for that matter) very much got the point about Nikki’s “qualities” – that was so blatant! #7: It is SO not mean that you replayed it several times. Because if that makes you mean, it makes me mean too. It was such a tender moment, and I was even getting a little teary. And I really expected her to pick her little girl UP into her arms. When they collided, it was just pure physical comedy genius. It belonged on America’s Funniest Home Videos. We were hysterical with laughter. I mean – the force of it knocked the kid’s hat off for crying out loud!
I’m all for hot dog girl too. I think she’s doggone terrific! (See what I did there?)

January 13, 2009 12:25 pm

Oh, and as for Shannon — she totally creeps me out, and that is hard to do. Were I Jason I’d be SPRINTING in the oppositie direction!

January 13, 2009 12:29 pm

Shannon is a psychopath, yes, but she is sweet. Erica is loud, vulgar, sloppy and not pretty or cute. I understand why the other girls dislike Meaghan, but at least she is very elegant, with the posture and bearing of a lady. And her attempt to ask Erica about apparently contradictory statements was done privately, person-to-person; Erica dragged it into the living room and tried to inflate it to a bigger drama, which was immature and painful to watch.

And on the topic of fashion fails…not sure what to think of Meaghan’s frilly white dress with cowboy boots, or Jason’s hipster/JoBro wannabe vest and t-shirt combo…
