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.

First I would like to say that it is truly sad when I haven't posted anything all week in between my Bachelor posts. I do have life outside the Bachelor. I promise.
Okay, now that I have my disclaimer out there, can I just say....I LOATHE VIENNA. Vienna, I was totally easy on you last week but now my eyes have been opened to just how awful you are. I was so annoyed at how much crap the girls talked about you (still kind of am) but HELLO. Ridiculous.
Alright. Back to the beginning. The girls went trecking across the California coast and drama ensued. Thankfully for everyone, Vienna and Alli were not in the same RV. Thank you, ABC.
Gia got the first one on one date with Jake and I really warmed up to her. She seemed so relatable, and I loved her stories about what a geek she was. I was laughing at their spin the bottle game, not only because it was unbelievably cheesy, but I thought it was funny that it was Jake's idea (especially after she had just finished telling him how her first kiss was the worst because it was during a spin the bottle game....ummmm....) I really liked Gia, though. I feel like if she came out on top (barring any crazy personality quirks that may surface later) I would be alright with it. Oh, and I have to mention the piano montage of 'On the Wings of Love' in the background of their date. Nice.
Next came the group date where Vienna was horrendous. "I want to be last." Is she two years old? Get over yourself!! We were cheering, jumping up and down when Jake informed her that she brings the torment from the other girls upon herself (that is where the 'genius' in my title comes in). I loved it. Sweet chastising.
Corrie became more outgoing and I liked her much more this week. I really could not stand her comedy routine last week. Give me Corrie ANY day over Vienna though. Seriously. I still don't see much spark between her and Jake, unfortunately. (Or fortunately?)
Tenley got some awesome one on one time and I feel like she is seriously MADE for Jake. Someone mentioned how bubbly she is all the time, and how she always sees the positive. That seems like the type of thing he would absolutely adore. She's my match. She's going all the way. ;)
Alli is Jake's new pick since all his girls got axed this week. I have to say, Alli needs to GET OVER her problems with Vienna. Yes, we all know Vienna is disgusting, Alli. Move on. Focus on your relationship with Jake!! Is she going to give him an ultimatum? A 'her or me' situation? I am absolutely DREADING her 'talking to' she is going to give him. Start spooning out the awkwardness now. UGH.
Lastly the Two on One. The beginning of the bloodbath of mass proportions. Mike's girl, Kathryn, AKA Jean Smith was totally burned when he sent her home when he totally could have given her a rose. Ella had already been sent packing...what would have been the harm? I feel like Kathryn wasn't given much of a chance. In Jake's defense, she REALLY needed to be more upbeat during her one on one time. Maybe her totally downer attitude had something to do with it?
Side note: We were cracking up at all the girls bawling their eyes out when both bags got taken away. Um, hello....you WANT people to leave. Did no one explain to them how this works???
Onto the cocktail party. Jessie (the girl with the dark hair, in case you didn't know who I was talking about.) pulled him aside at the cocktail party and gave him the truth (again) about Vienna. I really liked the story she told him, about the cars. It was a perfect example of a HUGE RED FLAG. (This is where the 'stupid' comes into play in my title). Why, oh why, oh why, did he not let Vienna go? He has been through this before with Wes. Where there is smoke, there's fire. Evil, evil fire. But he kept her, completely dissing Ashleigh and Jessie by having one of the roses removed. Ashleigh's reaction was actually pretty fair, I thought. I would have said the EXACT same thing. Vienna. Really? Spare me.
Vienna, I had your back last week but you are just TOO spoiled and self centered. I am seriously nervous about next week. She makes the stupid move by hopping into Jake's bed- he does NOT seem happy....but I am still scared that he is going to ax Corrie...or Alli will overstep her bounds with her 'talking to'...or any other thing that would keep Vienna around.
