The Bachelotette

Howdy Folks -

Well, most of us thought we would not watch this round, but any who caught the first episode said they were hooked.  In the coming previews of this season they treated us to, it seemed like there is plenty of drama to look forward to over the next dozen weeks.  Until Jackie can set us up the normal Bachelorette Talk sidebar, I will post a place on Mondays for your comments!  

See you tonight!!!!!!

Thank you, Sydney! It's a two-hour episode tonight with Tommy Lasorda coaching the guys on baseball. Ought to be a riot!

Nana in the NW said...

Thanks Sydney. I'm sure Jackie feels better just knowing she has left some interim posting in your capable fingers.

This season does seem interesting--I hope it doesn't dissappoint us. You know how these networks show trailers that look great and then..... Seems like Twilly is going to turn into a stalker, maybe Deanna will get rid of him tonight.

Have fun watching and as usual I will be lurking ahead of time here on the WC. LOL

Zoetawny said...

Hi Sydney!

I've tried to email you several times but my emails won't send. I have no idea what's wrong. I tried to email your graphics a couple of days ago and I finally had to put that email in my "Send Later" folder. Just tried a text only email but it won't send either. DANG!

I'll be watching The Bachelorette but probably won't be able to post in EDT time.

Here's a link to Lee Greenwood's God Bless America on YouTube that's very inspirational.

Have a good holiday all!

TerryinCA said...

YAY SYDNEY!!!!
Im so glad....I love reading the comments and the news before the show!
Deanna seems level headed and not in this for anything but finding the right guy.
Twilley creeps me out right from the get-go, couldnt figure her keeping him unless they did it for TV sake.
I have a few favorites already...Graham and Richard the Science guy...and the one with the son..cant think of his name.

Nana in the NW said...

terry-- it sounds like most of us are on the same page. Those were the favs. most listed last week, too(Jason is the guy with the son--he lives about 45 mins. from me). I think there's a few she kept either for good TV or they were "the better of the worst". Paul(the guy who jumped in the pool) I wouldn't have kept.

zoe--several of us will be posting WC time. I'm just hoping I can stay awake till 11:00!!

Enjoy everyone.

TerryinCA said...

nana!
Hey good to hear from you...yes I think she likes dark hair clean cut guys...and those three really struck me as keepers. That jerk she booted with all the tats he was horrid!
I saw her on Ellen today and she wouldnt give up anything...not even say she found someone!
Im so thrilled Syd is posting this..Im not sure I can stay up 9-11 either!
I heard it was 75 in Juneau today! Maybe our Cruise started a weather change!

joy n said...

I'm hoping that Jason will be one of the three moving into the "big house" tonight.

joy n said...

A lot of crybabies concerning those bunkbeds. Must be metro-sexuals.

joy n said...

The piano driving Ryan nuts on his 1-on-1 time with DeAnna was funny! I don't like this karate jerk anyway.

TerryinCA said...

ewwwww, I dont like him either!

joy n said...

Aw, Richard made her a paper flower! He's a sweet guy.

Even the guys distrust Twilly's motives for being there. Twilly's got a bald spot!

joy n said...

Sounds like Jason is going to come clean about his three year old son.

Hope it doesn't make a difference to DeAnna. It sure wouldn't to me!

Sydney said...

OK, just got in from a BBQ--- will go back and read your comments to see what I missed, then will watch Tivo after... when the West coasters are watching.

Sydney said...

LOVE IT THAT SHE GETS TO DRIVE THE CAR!!

Sydney said...

We know Graham is not going to disappoint, right? He has a cute smile...

Sydney said...

what do we think about graham having only one serious rel by 29? DO we think that's a problem? He seems well adjusted. Hmmm

Opinions please!

TerryinCA said...

That adorable child wouldnt make a difference to me either...in fact when I met my husband he was trying to locate his son, who would be turning 6 had not seen him for three years....we pooled our brain power and we found him and enforced his visitation...that was a awesome tear filled day!

TerryinCA said...

Sydney....hmm...well he could have been so engrossed in school??? it could happen.....

joy n said...

She says she's felt "connected" to Graham since the first night. He is a good-lookin' guy. She's worried, though, that he's 29 and only been in love once. Afraid that she won't get "anything back". I'd be more worried that he just got out of that relationship.

TerryinCA said...

You are right......hey how do you feel about the big blondish/gray football coach guy...cant think of his name....???? He said "Now I know why I came here" when he met her

Sydney said...

Zoe-- I sent you two e-mails just now. I did get the one with the graphics. Sorry about your frustration. I find AOL is veddy veddy confusing too much of the time!

Sydney said...

Dang, 28 years is a long time to wait... I can see til 25 or so.

THat marhsmallow was BURNT!

He'll get the rose no surprise, right?

Sydney said...

Wait, I missed the first part of the show... did you all get the impression that he was jsut there to fall in love with anyone?? DO we need to worry about this guy?

joy n said...

Looks like the date is going smoothly now.

Ryan just told the guys he's a virgin. They took it well. I'm surprised they didn't razz him.

Graham got the 2nd rose. Paul had received the first one. Don't really get the Paul rose, but glad that Graham got one.

TerryinCA said...

Paul isnt even on my radar.....

Sydney said...

Did anythign happen with the single father in the first half hour that I missed? I think I'm pulling most for him, though it's EARLY.

delee said...

I love burnt marshmallows!!! Catch those suckers on fire!!!

Graham got the 1st kiss and a rose!

joy n said...

I love Tommy Lasorda!

delee said...

Nada yet about the father, coming up I think.

joy n said...

Jason (single dad) had a bit of 1-on-1 time with DeAnna on the group date, but didn't tell her about his son. The preview shows him telling the guys. I'm assuming he will tell her, too.

joy n said...

These guys are LOVING the baseball date at Dodger Stadium BELIEVE!

Worst version of the Nat'l. Anthem I've ever heard.

Sydney said...

This is so much fun to have you ALL live blogging on this! I feel like you're all over sitting on my couch having a gals night out with me, lol!

joy n said...

Some nice homers there!

Sydney said...

This seems like a pretty sincere bunch... Was she in on casting them like the last one was? Jen got to watch casting tapes and yea or nay them.

dla said...

OK, I admit it! I am peeking before it airs on the west coast! lol

Sounds interesting! Who was the "stalker" they were showing in the clips for this week?

terry in ca, I also picked out that big guy last week... He was off the radar most of the show, but she kept him, and I liked the little bit we got to see. She seems to go for the brunettes, but you never know!

joy n said...

Jeremy's lost both his parents in the last few years. She has empathy with him on that subject.

joy n said...

Twilly is the stalker, but they haven't gotten to that so far.

Sydney said...

OK, reading back during a commercial to see what i missed --

Terryinca and Laurie-- WELCOME BACK!!!! Hope to hear details and maybe even see pix on CHatters Lane. Due for a new post over there anyway.

Terry -- As Nan said, we seems to all have the same early faves -- Father, science guy, graham

joy n said...

Eric does seem "stuck" on that Greek thing. B-O-R-I-N-G !!!!

I'm liking Brian more.

Sydney said...

Hey Dla-

Thanks to Joy for actually commenting on the skeleton of the show so West Coasters don't have to guess so much from the more vague comments, like MINE, lol!!!!

Sydney said...

OK pewople -- they guy with this son is JASON. We will remember that name now.

Sydney said...

The chef just does nothing for me...
do we think he'll go tonight?

joy n said...

Jason just told the guys about his son. I hope one of those guys don't tell DeAnna first to make him look dishonest. He said he wants to tell her.

Sydney said...

Oh no that's BAD... broadcasting her private conversation???? Does she know about that? What if they had a wild make out session???

Also, What do we think about Ron the hairdresser?

Sydney said...

REally, can you picture that? you are sitting on a nice little blanket, at night, with SEVEN guys watching fireworks?

joy n said...

Jeremy got a rose. The guys don't like him, but she does and so do I. They're jealous.

TerryinCA said...

Hey Syd----pass the popcorn, and move over a bit! Me too, its like we are all sitting on a huge couch ---Im old enough to remember the old "Playpen" couches that could hold 15-20 people----
I wish I knew how to post the pictures! I gave laurie the ones from the ships studio maybe she can post them? Lots of pix of us sitting on the balcony in our jammies...we so enjoyed it all. she took a major leap and went on a heliocopter ride to Mendenhall Glacier, and I did the ten line Zipline....awesome!
We had great weather...just perfect

joy n said...

Me, with SEVEN guys on a blanket, watching fireworks? I'd have to think about that. NOT! Tell me when and tell me where.

Sydney said...

Wow, her figure looks amazing in that blue dress!!!!

joy n said...

Three guys leaving tonight!

TerryinCA said...

puhleese let it be that creept Twilley and the long haired loud jacket guy

joy n said...

Wow! these guys are jealous of the attention Jeremy is getting. "Haters" is a strong word to use.

When is Twilly going to start stalking?

Hope Jason talks to D soon. These guys are showing their cutthroat side. Ryan (the virgin) acted like he might want to give D that info about his child.

Sydney said...

Terry or anyone --

Well, at the close of the first show last week, Deanna said she really thought the long hair crazy jacket guy had a great personality... did we see anything in the first half hour (that I missed) that maintained that about him?

Joy, you cracked me up about the 7 guys.

It'd be hard to keep your ego in check. How do we all think Deanna is doing in that department?

Sydney said...

Chef guy looks better in a suit...

Sydney said...

joy, I wonder if the central time version is a commercial break apart. You keep mentiong things I haven't seen yet. Hmm...

I knew Jason child wouldn't bother her.

joy n said...

I'm liking Ron (the other dad) less and less. And I don't trust Ryan (the virgin).

Sydney said...

wait -- isn't that Ron hairdresser guy who is telling her about his son? Or is it Jason? Do two guys have a child?

Sydney said...

OK, everybody is in a suit but the long haired guy... I understand he's a little more rock and roll, but there are tock and roll suits.

PLEASE LET TWILEY GO!!! I don't want to see him next week.

joy n said...

Well, let's see if Jessie does have a personality.

Sydney said...

i agree with you Joy -- Ron seems, what is it, arrogant or something a little brash.

Sydney said...

twilley twilley, please say good bye to twilley

joy n said...

Sydney, yes, Ron and Jason each have a child. Ron is divorced. Haven't heard Jason mention an ex-wife.

Nana in the NW said...

terry-how are you watching the show? Aren't you in Ca.??

Of course I am snooping in here to find out who is getting roses. Deanna got to give out 3 impression roses again??

Paul got a rose?!? Wasn't he the guy who jumped in the pool last week?? What did he do to impress her? And where is Jason? He needs to assert himself if he wants to stay!

Thanks for any answers you guys can give me--after all I still have an hour to wait!!

BTW--I would like some popcorn, too. I don't even mind sitting on the floor!!

Sydney said...

Terry -- I have a version of one of those couches.. We broke it up so it takes up most of the room, rather than be one big bed.... My sister in Colorado has had one of those for decades and just recovered it once or twice!

Sydney said...

Terry -- I just learned how to post pic on the blog. The one I put on chatters lane of hydrangeas was my first time,a dn then I posted Zoetawny's graphics when Jackie was in the hospital. It is so easy I can't believe it.

I'll leave you instructions on your blog.

joy n said...

The Rose Ceremony -

Ron

Jessie

Robert

Ryan

Jason (Whew!)

Fred

Sean

Richard

Twilly (WHAT?)

Sydney said...

holy cow, she kept Twilley

Sydney said...

What do we think about her letting Ryan go?

joy n said...

Brian, not Ryan.

delee said...

She kept Twilley...why? Also Fred again why? Karate guy too???

Strange keepers, for sure.

Sydney said...

Gawd, I'm sorry, I know Twilley made a lot of efforts, but can you really see kissing him? I don't see the chemistry there.

joy n said...

Ellen DeGeneres next week.

Sydney said...

i think that ow ow that Deanna did after fallling off that horse is a joke she's pulling on them to see who comes running over. Shall we take bets?

ooh previews of Jason finally telling Deanna about his boy over a private dinner.

Sydney said...

That's odd Joy, I thought it said the name Ryan under him while he was talking. Oh well

Sydney said...

I was referring to the guy who is a virgin.. is he not named Ryan?

Nana in the NW said...

Only 3 guys left?? Who??

I'm going to have to watch closely....why would she keep Twilley, Jesse and Ron(?)the hairdresser.

Thanks for the posts--I don't know if I will be able to stay awake(I was up at 5:00a.m.--getting hubby and grandson off fishing). I am going to DVR it so I can watch tomorrow in case I fall asleep on the couch!

TerryinCA said...

Nan, I am not watching it I am just reading the blog here....now I am confused, who did she let go???

Zoetawny said...

Peeking again. LOL

Nana...I tried the EC live feeds but The Bachelorette isn't showing there. I was wondering the same thing about how Terry was watching here in CA.

Terryinca...

Welcome back! Ironically my best friend/neighbor is leaving tomorrow morning on an Alaska cruise. This is her second time and is doing the other side of Alaska from her first cruise. I hope you and Laurie had a great time.

After all your comments I have to see who Twilly is. Can't remember him from the first episode.

Well, still have to finish cleaning up after the BBQ. I probably won't be commenting until tomorrow night, sorry Nana.

Thanks, Sydney!

Anonymous said...

Ryan the virgin got the boot. Brian the blond football coach is still there.

Sent home:
Ryan (virgin)
Chris (medical sales)
Eric (Greek guy)

Twilley looks shifty ;)

Sydney said...

sounds like a good plan Nana. I think she kept jesse because he is a pretty nice and sincere guy. He doesn't seem to have a big ego or be geeky/giddy like the guy who was Greek. Also, she told the guys she liked the competiton over her, and said she'd award alone time with her to the guy who could to the most push ups. Jesse outlasted every other guy (it was down to he and the football coach at about 98 push ups) and she liked that he worked so hard for that time with her.

He immediately addressed why he wasn't in a suit like the others. Besides saying that's not him, in a very genuine way, there was some hint that that's not the place he's at in life. i wonder if that means he can't afford it as well... I think Deanna is the kind of woman who would think she could redo the outer package if the guy himself were right.

I didn't mind the guy from Boston that she let go. Why not keep him instead of Twilley???

TerryinCA said...

she let Brian Texas go? too bad, and kept TWILLEY? sheesh!

TerryinCA said...

Sydney, I loved those couches..Our friends used to put it all together when our kids were small and they couldnt get out. I never had a big enough room for one. theirs was a shaggy brown, so comfy ...great nap space!

Sydney said...

Anon -- thanks for clearing that up!

Sydney said...

stupidcupid, if you're out there, we miss you!

Sydney said...

Thanks Joy for the blow by blow! Great job as usual!

joy n said...

I'm glad that Ryan, the judgmental virgin Christian was let go.

Was surprised to see Chris go. She didn't spend much time with him but he seemed nice.

Glad to see Eric (All Things Greek) go.

I am very surprised that Jessie (snow boarder), Robert (arrogant chef), Sean (karate A-hole), Paul (pool guy) and most of all, creepy Twilly are ALL still there. De anna, I'm getting suspicious about your taste in men.

I guess Jason tells D next week about his child. And, apparently, Twilly hasn't exposed his stalker side yet.

joy n said...

Sydney, I wasn't referring to your comment. I erred in the rose ceremony list, I thought I'd heard Ryan's name but it was Brian who got the rose. I should have clarified my statement. I'm glad Ryan's gone. I kind of like Brian.

joy n said...

Just heard on the news that Sidney Pollock, the director, died from cancer at the age of 73.

TerryinCA said...

joy n, I am just busting a gut here and giggling all over the place....your descriptions (quite perfect I might add) were right on the money!!!
I like Brian Texas too, Jason,Graham and Richard so far...why she is keeping the others surprises me....glad the greek guy went, shes not stupid.

Sydney said...

wow joy thank for the news about Sydney Pollack. I'm really sorry to hear that, though one of the things that I think about him is that he seemed to do a lot of fun things in film and made interesting choices, so maybe he lived the rest of his life that way. 73 is just so young. What was he just in that I saw???

joy n said...

Terry, I think she'll wise up to Sean, Robert and Twilly very soon. I'm waiting to see what Jessie and Ron will do in the shows to come.

joy n said...

Sydney, I believe he was in Michael Clayton with George Clooney. He directed some good films. Out of Africa, The Way We Were, and Tootsie come to mind.

TerryinCA said...

ok, I did it I stayed up and watched them all.....I understand some of Jeremy's coolness to the guys, and Im glad he didint try to win the push up thing...Im glad Jason is telling her about his son next week too...I think she she's Jesse as a diamond in the rough but I dont see chemistry with him ever, and I mean ever with him or Twilley. She's in real estate? she likes the suit and tie type I think....Im thinking she is being smart about her choices..but keeping Twilley and jesse isnt fair if she just really likes them as people but not as potentials...ya think?

dla said...

joy n, I am laughing out loud at your descriptive verbiage!!! :)

I don't get some of the choices, but will wait to see... Most confused by keeping Twilley, Sean (karate guy), Ron (bitter barber), and Paul (pool guy - how did he make it through the first week, and how did he get a group date rose tonight?!?!)

I would think Ron was OK if he didn't come across as so jealous, bitter and mad at the world... odd.

My personal preliminary picks after tonight's show are Jason and Brian Texas... They seem to be sincere, and have their heads in the right place with no apparent or obvious hang ups... What do you ladies think?

I am liking this season so far, and I had such low expectations! Shame on me! lol

Delee said...

Here it is: Tues shows

FOX (its back) Moment of Truth 8p
Hells Kitchen 9p

Discovery Deadliest Catch 9p
Alaska Experiment 10p

Bravo Real Housewives of Orange
County lost footage 10p

For anyone who has not seen, Moment of Truth, it is a train wreck waiting to happen. I sit and cringe at some of the things they need to answer for the $$$. Never ever do that show.

Alaska Experiment is something I have come to after about 4 episodes and want to see it from the start. Greenhorns placed in Alaska with winter coming and they need to prepare.

All LOSTIE's remember 2 hour season finale on Thursday. I thought it was over till fall. Surprise.

joy n said...

Sydney, Sidney Pollack was also in "Made of Honor" with Patrick Dempsey. Maybe that's where you saw him recently?

Dia, like your "bitter barber". Perfect!

Terry, I don't see the chemistry with Jessie, either and definitely, none with Twilly.

Dia, I'm still liking several of these guys - Jason, Graham, Brian are my three top contenders. Jeremy and Richard to a slightly lesser degree. I like Ron a little less after last night's episode. He definitely seemed to have taken a bitter pill last night.

Delee, I'm looking forward to watching Millionaire Password (not positive on the name) with Regis (where DOES he get the energy?) Philbin on Sunday night.

meb said...

How do you guys keep up with these names already. I still don't know any of them except Twilley and that's because I so don't like him. I can't believe he has had her undivided attention twice and couldn't explain himself to her.

The look on her face when the previews showed ?? telling her he had a son... priceless. I didn't remember anyone else saying they had a son as well. I guess I better pay closer attention.

I agree about keeping Jesse not being fair to him. I can't imagine he would be her type. He'll probably get really hurt.

Thanks for all the posts everybody, enjoy reading them.

sharon said...

I didn't think that Ron had any children. He has been married and divorced,but said he looked forward to having children when he asked her if dating a divorced guy was something she could do.I thought Jason was the only one they ever showed with a child. I do like Jason,but it may be more than she is willing to take on right out of the chute.

I'm with the rest of you,don't understand the keeping Jesse or Twilley. When she was down to that last rose I was yelling "send creepy Twilley home"...lol. He is so rude and pushy,always horning in on others. And I could never see her with Jesse,ever. I,also,don't understand the fascination with Paul,but he always comes out on top. He doesn't have much personality. I like Graham,but the not having a serious relationship at his age,shades of Brad! Jeremey just seems to be trying too hard and if most of the guys don't like him,can they all be that bad of judges of character? I'm glad she got rid of Chris(didn't like his look) and Ryan(what a smug attitude).I don't see her going for science teacher guy or the other teacher,just think that her being in real estate,she's used to a higher class of living than they can offer.JMO

TerryinCA said...

Ok, I slept on it....She must let Jesse and Twilley go, they will be hurt if they are staying any longer.
I like Jason, Jeremy, Graham and Brian. And not in that order. When Brian got our of the limo I thought, wow! Same went for Graham and of course I fell for Jason in the bio part of the first series.
After she tells him about the son, I think she will be glad he told her, and glad he's a devoted dad....

Sydney said...

Delee- I have to THANK YOU so much for your daily listing of the night's shows. I figure I'd post an area to comment when there is a big show everyone watches, but I just can't get it together to research that.

Wed there is a dancing with the stars special on Oprah-- it's a repeat of smethign she did about a month ago, but all the winners will be on, like Julianne and Helio, etc...

Nana in the NW said...

Good morning all--is everyone as confused as I am about what day it is?? These Monday holidays get me everytime!

I managed to stay awake for the whole show-but just barely. Some thoughts...

Jesse and Twilley--Deanna HAS to keep a certain number of guys and although she probably has no chemistry with them Jesse is fun to be around and I bet she feels sorry for Twilley. She had no connection to those that went home.

Fred--who is he?? We didn't see hardly any clips of him and yet she kept him?

Graham--I think Deanna is attracted to him and WANTS there to be a connection. After last night I didn't like him as much. I think he is like Brad--not sure what he wants. I would guess he was burned bad in his only relationship. He's being really hesitant about getting too close--not that it's a bad thing but D. wants committment.

Jeremy--He reminds me of D. last season. She came in to get the guy not make friends with the other girls. That seems to be where he's at. With the girls they think she's a bitch...with the guys he's cocky and disrespectful! He was smart to throw the push-up contest. I think he will be around for awhile.

Jason--still one of my top 2. Seems to be getting along with the others and I'm glad to see he gets a private date next week.

Ron--he is a "bitter barber"! Can we say..."messy divorce"?!It seems like he still has anger issues.

Robert--the chef is a BIG guy! I was surprised how tall he was next to D. He was a good sport about the homerun derby. You know he was sooo out of his element. He could turn out to be a nice guy but I don't see him around till the end.

Brian--interesting guy. He is different from the rest--which seem to be her "type". He was honest about not being ready to committ until the last few years and there's something about a Texas guy...easy on the eyes too.

Yep!! D. did us all a favor and picked a good group of guys for our "viewing pleasure"!! LOL

My favs--Jason, Brian, Jeremy.

If I were to guess D. favs.--Jeremy, Graham, Jason. JMO

Have a good one.

joy n said...

I'd have sworn I heard something about Ron having a child. If no one else did, I'm obviously wrong. I was worried that Ron might jump the gun and tell DeAnna that Jason had a son before J got a chance to.

Nana in the NW said...

I am pleasantly surprised that I am actually liking the new season. I started watching thinking "I'll only see the 1st ep. and then be done with it". Deanna seems much more personable without 24 other girls around. Maybe she watched last season and didn't like the way she was portrayed.

So far, so good......

Zoetawny said...

Better late than never. :)

Nana...

Sorry I couldn't get on to post last night. I decided to DVR The Bachelorette and watch The Andromeda Strain. The second part is on tonight. Have any of you watched it?

After reading all your posts I pretty much like the same guys that you do. I couldn't believe she kept Twilly. EWWWW!

We're all in love with Jason. ;)
She has plenty of time to get rid of the ones she doesn't like so some of the guys we were surprised that she kept will probably go soon.

Not having watched DeAnna on The Bachelor, I don't know her personality or taste in men. Of all the guys, have any of you zeroed in on who should be the ONE for her?

Joyn...

You are too funny! :D

Sydney...

Thanks for picking up the slack on the board and putting up an entry for us to chat about our fav TV shows. I hope Jackie is feeling better even though it's probably inch by inch at this point. Going to check my emails in a minute.

I'm so excited about the Lost finale this week. My husband didn't believe me when I said the finale was this week. He thought it was over last week...talk about "lost". ;)

HUGZZZZZZZZ to Jackie! We miss you!

TerryinCA said...

ok Im saying mine....Jason, Jeremy, Brian (if he ever gets any time with her) Im not nuts about Jeremy, but I think that he is nuts about her.
Jason would go the most graciously.
I cant take Twilley any longer.
I love Jesse but not for her.
Sean must go....Fred ? not sure.

Has anyone heard anything more about Shayne and Matt????

joy n said...

I read on Reality TV World that Matt moved into her apartment. The paps are giving him a hard time saying he's only with Shayne because he needs a green card. I think that's ridiculous. TMZ has shown a few clips of them.
