Where to begin....well, we can start with our picks. Let me just say that picking a favorite was VERY difficult for me this time around, because there are a couple guys I adore. But in life you have to stand for something, and I stand for....Kiptyn.
Yes, it was tough for me to overcome my love for Jake and choose Kiptyn, but after watching he and Jillian interact together, I really felt their connection. Plus, he is DARLING, right??
Of course there has to be a black horse, and since Jake (who I think is adorable) is too much in the running, he doesn't really qualify as a dark horse. So, I am going to choose....Sasha.
He was pretty soft spoken but is SO cute, right? He seems like a sweet guy.
Onto Mike's picks, for his main pick he chose...Jake (sigh.) He is seriously a doll.
Mike's dark horse: Ed. He really seems like an awesome guy, and they did seem to have a good connection. He did get quite a bit of face time, which makes him almost not eligible for a dark horse, but I guess I will let Mike have him. ;)
Other noteworthy guys:
Dave aka 'The Rock' (I think he looks like Dwayne Johnson, alright? I am entitled to my opinion.) got the first impression rose. I did think it was kind of crazy that he choked up when he first met her, but all in all he seems like an okay guy.
Mathue: Um, he is dar-ling! Maybe it's his Southern boy charm that is sweeping me off my feet, but I think he is so cute.
Wes: Under normal circumstances, I think serenading her on his guitar would have been INCREDIBLY cheesy, except for the fact that he rocked it. His song was beautiful! I am nervous that he is only there for publicity, though. He needs a beatdown if that is true. Mike: Not only does he have an awesome name (insert corny noise here) I thought that his pick up line (You ARE a good catch) was pretty brilliant, seeing as how he is a BASEBALL CAMP INSTRUCTOR. The other guys were insanely jealous of him and his pick up line, which is why they were so mean to him. Jealousy does strange things to people.
Michael: Breakdancer extraordinaire. I really disliked him at first when they were showing him at home, but he was seriously cracking me up!! When Bilbro (shudder) challenged him to the dance-off, that was just classic. More importantly, I think he was cracking Jillian up, too.
Another noteworthy person: Tanner. Ummmmmmmmm, okay. Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Tanner seem like the type that maybe got confused during tryouts? Like, you are going to be a contestant on the BachelorETTE, buddy. And his feet fetish? Soooooooo weird. and creepy.
The rest of the guys didn't get much face time, or else didn't make much of an impression on me, so I will be brief.
Tanner F: Seems like an Ok guy.
Simon: Cute accent, but I don't see a connection with them at this point.
Robby: Also seems like a good guy. Reid: Latecomer, seems alright.
Mark: Seems pretty cute, love that he is a pizza shop owner.
Julien: BUGS. He seems like a jerk and a half. Jessie- Mike can't stand this guy. He doesn't bother me that bad, though.
Juan: Also bugs. I can't remember if Mike likes him or not but I was hoping she would cut him.
Brian: I barely remember this guy, but I think he was alright.
Brad: A little surprised she kept this guy, but whatever. Seems nice.
Okay, that's my recap. Sorry for the lame ending but I was overwhelmed with the amount of guys that were there. They could have weeded out some of the lame-o's (like Spencer and Bilbro) initially and just had a good solid 25, but whatever. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Jillian!!
