Precious Jason. I had a look very similar to this one pretty much the whole time I watched tonight:
While watching this episode unfold, I pondered to myself...if I was ever on a show like this, where my family had to be filmed...would that bring out the 'crazy' in them? Is being on a reality show license to be as absolutely loony as possible?
Apparently, yes. It is.
I am sorry, ever so SORRY to my black horse, who was born into the nuttiest family alive. Naomi seems so normal, how is it possible? I wanted to fast-forward through her whole hometown date, but Mike made me suffer through it. I think she was hoping to smooth it all over with that pop on the butt she gave him at the end, but unfortunately the damage was done. Not that I was surprised, though, I already felt she would be leaving tonight. I just wish I wouldn't have had to witness the whole dove funeral before she got sent home. At least we can rest assured knowing that the dove will come back as their family cat.
Molly's family was quite a bit little less loony, but still kind of out there, especially when they knew that their hat shenanigans would be broad casted on national television. I do have to give it to Molly, though. If looks could kill, her mom would have dropped dead when she brought those hats out. Wow.
Jillian was kind enough to air all of her mother's dirty laundry out for all the world to hear, which I am sure her mother was loving when she watched tonight. I do think it was important for Jason to know of the difficulty they had been through as a family, but it was a little TMI. I actually LOVED Jillian's family, though. As we watched, Mike and I agreed that Jason seemed like he would fit right into that family. They seemed so fun and goofy. Goofy, not crazy. I liked it.
I felt so sad for Melissa that her parents weren't there for her at all. I think her friends meant well, but they didn't really help her situation much. I was surprised to hear them talk so much about the awful choices she had made in the past when it came to dating. It made her seem very immature. I still love her though, and I want her to win.
When Naomi left tonight, I was not surprised at all. I basically knew that she would be the one sent home tonight. But now, the final 3 girls that are left are all so neck and neck with one another. And I think Jason would be happy with them all. I absolutely cannot wait for next week!!!
Oh, and Deanna. First of all, get some style, Deanna. She shows up to try to steal him back looking totally frumpy. I don't know why that annoys me so much, but it does. I am interested to see how he shoots her down. He is so nice, I am sure he will do it with a lot of sensitivity.
Can't WAIT til next week!!!
