PS Was it interesting to anyone else to see the 'behind the scenes' stuff at the Rose Ceremony? I have always envisioned Chris Harrison lurking in the corner of the ceremonies, waiting to jump out and announce the 'final rose tonight', but apparently he is actually halfway across the house laughing and joking with the staff. Do they have to pause the show and round him up when it's time for him to announce that final rose? Also, I loved how the producers scurried out of the shot when Jake came walking out. Like, noooooo one else is here, we promise. Anyway.

Oh! Oh!! Ohhhhh my goodness! My jaw hurts from being on the floor so many times. I don't even know where to begin here! So much drama! So much to discuss!
Okay, I suppose a good place to start would be the first date. I will go in chronicological order and if I miss anything important, PLEASE jump in and add your thoughts!!! (Well, I want to hear them anyway, of course!) This episode was just so packed with stuff that I very well might miss something important.
Alright, back to the first date. Poor Christina was so nervous for her moment in the sun, I felt like, in that short period when Jake came out and danced with her, and then she talked so tenderly about him...I thought, "Wow, if I hadn't seen her be such a brat on the first episode, I probably would have liked her from what she is showing right now..." That lasted about two seconds, since she decided to drink every ounce of alcohol she could get her paws on. I was SO humiliated for her in her one-on-one time. I am convinced that is why he cut her, because she was so drunk during their alone time....
How did you feel about Ashleigh's 'Miss America' bikini walk? I wish they would have shown more conversation between the two of them. I want to know if they are building a connection or not. Then evil Rozlyn (who was rocking that devil red bikini) came and stole him away and then attacked his face in a completely unnatural, awkward way. Apparently he digs girls who make out with him awkwardly, though, because he gave her the rose (just like he gave Tenley the rose on the first night when SHE made out with him.) Boo, Jake. Don't you know she is the DEVIL?
Meanwhile, a date box appears back at the house, where the totally delusional Michelle feels that she can throw the necklace on to earn the next one on one date. Thankfully, we did not have to endure any long period of time watching Michelle. Instead, the date went to Ali, who cried darling tears of happiness when her name appeared on the date card. She is such a sweetie!
I admit it...I ate their date up. I put it in a bowl, poured sprinkles and whipped cream on it, and ate it all UP! I really adore her and Jake together. Oh, didn't you just get goosebumps when 'On the Wings of Love' started playing when they were in the airplane? (In Ali's words: "I think I just threw up in my stomach." Hmmmmmm.....) I seriously did love them dancing to Chicago, though, and he said he had never felt a connection like that before. Sigh....
The last date card arrives and Psychopath Michelle has a tantrum and runs to pack her bags, jumps all over the girls when they try to comfort her. She even accuses ROZLYN of lying! Can you believe it? Rozlyn? A liar? Pshhhhhhhhhhhh. Tenley remains composed, and, I am starting to see her more and more with Jake (behind Ali) because she is just so positive and nice. She isn't my favorite, but for him....it could work.
The final date is the group date to Six Flags where my Pick, Elizabeth, turns into a complete freak of nature. WHAT the heck. Seriously, Elizabeth? Seriously. I buried my head in my hands and shook as she read her awkward 'note' about not kissing him. So awkward. I would have liked it a lot more if later she would have just maybe mentioned it, once. Nope, she goes on to rub it into him all night. "See those fireworks? Do you want to kiss me? TOO BAD!" "I'm such a good kisser..." It's like, you made your point, he STILL chose you, MOVE on! I am shaking my head at Elizabeth. With shame.
Cocktail party time, and the truth. comes. out. Rozlyn is a BUSTED! I was annoyed by how little details were given, and even more annoyed when I read this: Rozlyn Bashes the Bachelor What is the true story here? I wonder if we will ever know... Regardless, Jake's whole world is rocked, but somehow he picks himself up from his pit of despair and makes it to another rose ceremony, where he eliminates Christina and Ashley. Phew, I was worried he might cut the incredibly unstable Michelle! Good think we can look forward to her split personality for at least another week....
Okay, so here comes the good part! The scenes from next week! Mike and I watched them carefully, and repeatedly. We concluded some things from them, so if you DO NOT WANT ANYTHING (possibly) SPOILED, then don't read on. Are you really strong enough to stop reading, though? Really?
Okay, so here's the deal. They show Vienna's bungee jumping date with Jake, and she is wearing the same tank top as the girl in the clip they show of a girl rolling out her pink luggage...as if she is leaving. WE think that they are just showing her rolling her luggage out because of that chance that he would not give her a rose...they always have to be packed and ready to go, you know what I mean? So, I think the person who actually leaves (when Jake says, "We don't need a Rose Ceremony, I think you SHOULD go") is not the girl (Vienna) they show rolling out the suitcases. Obviously Vienna stays because she goes back to the house and brags about her date too much. Elizabeth is shown storming away, though. Is it possible she is on her way out? Mike thinks that would be TOO much foreshadowing... Also, we noticed that the shirt Jake is wearing when he says that line I just quoted above, is the same shirt he is wearing on the group date he has with all the women in the next episode. Elizabeth is in that group. Michelle is, too, but it shows him kissing her in the preview for the next show....
Thoughts? Let me know! Oh, and I will leave you with a little something awesome....

Elizabeth. Love her. She is down to earth, has amazing values, and yet manages to be a normal, non-goofy person. And, as a side note, she looks like my friend, Hillary. That's a bonus.
Kimberly. I really liked her, and maybe it's because she reminded me of one of my friends (apparently I am forming weird emotional attachments to the girls who look like someone I know) or if it's because she just seemed so down to earth, sweet, and wholesome, JUST what he was looking for? I don't know, but I was sad to see her leave.

And, on the Werewolf subject, I wanted to blog quickly about New Moon. I know, I am way behind the times writing about it, but I was so crazy during the time that I saw it (twice). Anyway, my sister wrote a genius blog post about it which I am going to copy and paste here since I don't think I could have written it any better. :)
Yes, every single one of you have to admit you are drooling just a little.
Except my mom who rolled her eyes at us every time we "oooooh-ed and aaaahhhh-ed!" And my husband, maybe he's not drooling.
How many of you have switched teams NOW?
