The Bachelorette Meet Up


On the Bachelorette website on ABC.com there is a little screen and under it you can click on shorts to view. There is one called Diary of the Departed and is of some interest. It's the last words of the guys who leave each week. This week you can get one last glimpse of the Bitter Barber and Paul, the sweet, pillow lipped guy she let go last Monday night. I know, you can probably live without ever seeing the barber again, but you will chuckle to hear him still harping on Jeremy (Methinks he has a man crush and it's man-ifester-ing this way).

Tonight the boys get to race fast cars, wearing one piece jumpsuits. I think we liked the Ellen boxers better. And it looks like we may finally get to see the overplayed scene where she bawls out the guys while crying about how serious she is.

She rejects the kiss of one guy --ouch --and she goes on a solo date with Jesse, the long haired snowboard guy, so we can finally get more than a glimpse of what his appeal may be. It says a date may end with the most shocking outcome yet! Doesn't that make you want to tune in to see?

UPDATE - Image added, category label added, and I'll be linking this post to the sidebar momentarily! (Jackie)

Yay Jackie!!! Thanks so much for this!

Donna in AL said...

I wish I could get interested in this show just to feel the companionship of the commenters, but I just cannot. I have not even tried to watch The Mole either. I will be so glad when BB10 starts so I can jump in.

Sydney said...

Donna, I recorded the Mole but I am not so interested either. I am surprised that I am into the Bachelorette enough this time to comment myself.

Sydney said...

Are we impressed with any of these guys's poetry????

Sydney said...

The guys have to do kind of perfromance art/poetry reading/singing for Deanna.

Looks like Jesse scored some points with his little poem. Here's Brian finally? His is like true poetry!

THe reward is a one on one date... SHe liked Roberts, Shawns but Jesse won, because he gave her Physical contact... he put himself out there

Sydney said...

There are three new guys in the house with Deanna... one is Jason, one is the guy who cooks and... didn't catch the other yet.

Sydney said...

Lol, I think I'm blogging with myself. Joy must be doing something, and delee too. Donna, I am pretending you are on the other end of the computer someahere!

joy n said...

Sydney, the three who got the first three roses last week are in DeAnna's house this week. Jason, Robert and Fred. I liked Brian's lyrics the best. He didn't even get a mention.

Donna in AL said...

LOL, I am here but I am watching Bill Engall's show.

Sydney said...

Yay Joy and Donna! I know Joy, I thought Brian should get some kind of attention. He's totally getting glossed over. THey guys wer more impressed with Brian than she was.

Jesse looks pretty nice in a suit. I'm getting his charm after all. Are you feeling it?

joy n said...

My husband's 58th B-day today. We just got back from dinner. In case anyone's counting, he's 3 years and 3 months younger than me. My own little boy-toy. Does that make me a cougar?

Jessie gave his poetry a nice try. It's the thought that counts, right?

joy n said...

Yes, I'm seeing more of an attraction there with Jessie and Ms D.

Zoetawny said...

Hey guys! I'm all excited seeing Jackie post again today. She's always thinking of us putting up a place to hang out.

For all you west coasters, I found the Live EC feeds for The Bachelorette.

http://www.justtvnuts.com/

Unfortunately I can't stay for the entire show and comment live with you. But, I will read your comments and then look for your opinions tonight when I watch the show my time.

I'm already cracking up at the lovely poetry...NOT.

I've always wondered are these guys really trying to win DeAnna because they actually have feelings for her or are they just trying to win period? You know how guys want to be the top dog alpha male. ;)

Hey Sydney...

You do a good job blogging by yourself. LMAO! Looks like you have company now. ;)

Who is this guy on now? I just can't see him with DeAnna. Can you?

joy n said...

That's Jessie.

Zoetawny said...

joyn...

Hope you had a nice dinner. Can you growl like a cougar?

joy n said...

Natasha Bedingfield, like her voice.

I think Jessie is being sincere but I'm not sure that she will end up with him.

Zoetawny said...

Well, D did tell Jesse that she's not physically attracted to him so I don't think he'll be the ONE. She may keep him for a while.

sydney...

What could you do to re-style him so he would be more attractive to D? Hair-cut and whatelse? ;)

joy n said...

Grrrrrow!!!!!!!

Zoetawny said...

Thanks, Joy!

Zoetawny said...

joyn...

That's a cool growl! LOL

Donna in AL said...

Whoo Hoo for Joyn! "They" say you can teach the younger ones what YOU like!! ha ha

Zoetawny said...

Maybe I can talk my hd into watching tonight...he's a Nascar fan.

Sydney said...

OMG, watching these ads for WIpeout looks pretty darn funny.

I am totally liking Jesse. He asked her to dance -- another guy could have sat there -- and looked pretty capable. When they entered the theater, he put his hand on the small of her back. Maybe the image he has is a bit of a sham.

DId the producers ask him to ask her to dance? Still, he did a good job.

Sydney said...

Yay, Brian is first... oops, he messed up the engine. DANG, I want him to do this.....

Sydney said...

Jason doesn't strike me as agressive guy. But he did 138 MPH to Brian's 140. Not bad.

Sydney said...

I don't like Jeremy. Hmmm....

Sydney said...

WIlley looks much better more handsome with a helmet on. What does that mean??? LOL

joy n said...

Back in a few minutes. My hubby NEEDS an ice cream cone. Now of all times. Well. it is his day.

Zoetawny said...

donna in al...

They have to be under 18 to do that. LOL

Sydney said...

Tell your hubby we all said Happy Birthday!

And it's all good to have that little age difference ;-)

Zoetawny said...

sydney...

Who need agressive when he looks like Jason? ;)

Sydney said...

Donna and Zoe -- You'd think if you can teach and older dog new tricks, it would at least apply to THAT category!

Zoetawny said...

joyn...

How's about making us a cone, too?
It's hot here. 93°

Zoetawny said...

sydney...

Only if they're willing to learn.
LOL

Zoetawny said...

Sean's requirement for a wife...burn rubber. LOL

Sydney said...

True Z - He IS good looking.

Hmmm, now I'm for Brian, Jesse and Jason. She has no interest in Brian that they show, tho.

I think Graham is losing it, at least I hope. And Sean was starting to say the right things, and then he blew it with saying they had a Bluegrass connection (I saw her face fall behind her nice frozen smile) and more when he said they were rednecks...

Zoetawny said...

Why is Jeremy such a threat to the other guys? I don't get it but maybe I missed something.

Sydney said...

Hmm.... they guys are all talking now about Jeremy, that he doesn't care, just what the barber was saying.

Is it possibly true?

Well, Graham and she have chemistry.

Zoetawny said...

They all think she's falling for Graham...and she is. Poor Jason! :(

Zoetawny said...

D didn't like that rejection...whoa!

Sydney said...

Jason is describing what's going on with Graham very well. He's articulate.

Zoetawny said...

She's extremely defensive with Graham because of her last heartbreak.

Sydney said...

Oh, truer words were never said my friend, LOL

Zoetawny said...

I guess that means Jesse is IN because he "put himself out there".

Zoetawny said...

Is she hormonal?

Sydney said...

Well, regardless, she gave the rose to Sean because at least he put himself out there while Graham is keeping a wall up.

BRIAN said it, he feels on the outside looking in. it's not editing/

I bet that Deanna give the rose to neither guy who go on the two on one date with her tonight. She pulls a Brad on them...

Zoetawny said...

She needs to stop mentioning BRAD!
Maybe she's not over it...lot of hostility still lingering.

joy n said...

Wish I could send you all a cone thru Cyberspace. I feel guilty eating on myself now. As long as I was out there........ It was 92 here today.

Graham is losing her. Surprises me that Sean got a rose. I'm taping this.

Good thing cause I lost about 10 mins. here.

Zoetawny said...

I hope Brian steps up soon.

Sydney said...

That's funny Zoe, the 20th time I saw Deanna's advertised meltdown I though the same thing.. I wonder where she is in her cycle. Not that it would not be totally justified by the circumstances, but it did cross my mind!

What kind of ice cream JoyN????

Zoetawny said...

joy n said...
Wish I could send you all a cone thru Cyberspace. I feel guilty eating on myself now. As long as I was out there........ It was 92 here today.
*********
Thanks! It's the thought that counts. :)
We haven't even had dinner yet. I was going to sign off and got caught up here.

Zoetawny said...

sydney...

Event planners they're not but cute effort anyway.

Zoetawny said...

sydney...

D acts like she has a little entitlement issue, no?

Sydney said...

Dang, was that Jason with his shirt off looking so STUDLY? He has such a sweet boy demeanor, I just didn't imagine that 5 pack and those pecs hiding under his clothes.

Zoetawny said...

Robert sounds like a quitter or he's just guarding his heart?

Zoetawny said...

ME ME ME ME! Ugh!

Sydney said...

I think she's pissed that Graham is ignoring her.

Zoetawny said...

She's speaking to Graham!!!!!!!!

joy n said...

Perry's Chocolate Marshmallow With Brownie Bits. I feel so decadent! It's my once a week treat and it doesn't upset my blood sugar too much. I love the stuff!

Is it my imagination or is DeAnna putting this on a little thick?

Zoetawny said...

sydney...

GMTA! ;)

Zoetawny said...

joyn...

I'm jealous...the ice cream. MMMMM! I LOVE ICE CREAM!

I don't think D is ready for a guy yet...any guy. She still has "Brad issues".

Oh oh, the dogs are looking at me like where's my dinner.

joy n said...

Darn, I missed Jason's pecs and abs, too! I'll definitely re-watch this.

Zoetawny said...

It's been fun but guess I'd better go get dinner together. Just a big salad tonight...too hot for anything else.

Later~

Sydney said...

Joy -- I totally agree with you. While she was bumming out because, as the guys so aptly put it, they were more into each other than her (idiots-- and I have news for her, this is probably what's going to happen when she is about 15 months in with whomever she chooses), I felt that she kinds had to get herself started on the crying, and then scolded them all with guilt statements before she could get to more real sounding stuff.

Sydney said...

There's something Charlie Sheen like about the chef guy...

joy n said...

That little meltdown of D's reminded me of her season with Brad when I didn't care for her so much.

Looks like she let it slide away.

Sydney said...

OH too funny. She avoids his kiss and they cut with him saying they have chemistry in a swaggering way.

joy n said...

I'm thinking that neither Richard or Fred have a much of a chance. I don't think she's feeling either of them.

Sydney said...

OK, let's see how Fred does.

joy n said...

She has to give one of them a rose, doesn't she?

joy n said...

Robert is gone! Not surprised.

joy n said...

WOW! Fred is leaving, too. I didn't think she was feeling them.

joy n said...

She sure cries a lot.

joy n said...

Did Jessie get a rose on his 1-on-1 date?

joy n said...

Jason is really a good guy. He's a comfort when she needs one.

joy n said...

Sydney, where'd you go? I know Z is fixing her dinner.

Sydney said...

Do we believe that these guys cry? I mean, I would understand a few of them, but I really don't know. WHen the tear rolled down the chef's cheek, it was interesting that he turned that cheek toward the camera.

OK, her tears sending Fred home were real.

Lucky Jason to get to comfort her, and I'm glad because I like him more than Jeremy or Graham.. but if Graham does it for her nerve endings, that's pretty powerful.

Sydney said...

Sorry -- I am here, I must have forgotten to type there for a few!

Sydney said...

Yes, Jesse got a rose!

joy n said...

One more has to leave, right? Any guesses?

joy n said...

Maybe Twilley?

Sydney said...

OK, one mark against Jason, IMHO, and don't hate me for this.. he AWLAYS puts his thumb on her chin when he kisses her. When I first saw that I was like YAY, but then I saw he does it every single time and it kind of now irritates me.

Jeremy wore a color coordinated outfit for the gown she wore... that's a lucky coincidence... oh wait, most of the guys are wearing taupe-y kinds of clothes. That's odd!

Sydney said...

Finally some time with Brian! I know, he's not on the top 3 list, but I can hope til the end of the rose ceremony.

joy n said...

Give it your best shot, Brian.

Sydney said...

Gotta be Twilley.

IS it only one guy? I hope so. I think so because he got rid of both guys on the double date

joy n said...

She really seems to have a big thing for Graham.

Sydney said...

What did you think about Brian's time with her.

Oop, she's trying to get into it with Graham. SHe really went in for the kiss with him.

Yo, how many shirtless guys in the hot tube with her? Now THAT is fun.

Joy, I may have been seeing Graham without his shirt on and thought it was Jason. If you re-watch it you'll have to let me know. It was early on, during the BBQ that they invite her down to.

joy n said...

Yes, she said just said one will go. I agree it has to be Twilley. She likes his sense of humor but doubt that's enough.

joy n said...

Will do, Sydney.

joy n said...

I believe that's the most interest she's shown in Brian so far. Maybe things will warm up more between them now. I hope so.

joy n said...

Rose ceremony

Jason - good

Jeremy

Twilley - uh,oh!

Graham - ohno!

Goodbye Brian - mistake, I think.

joy n said...

Why does she keep Twilley?

Sydney said...

awww, Twiley knows he's going to go. He looks sad.

Nice smile Brian.

WOAH -- Twilley got a rose. HUH????

Is she letting Brian go?????

Sydney said...

She's attracted to only dark guys?

joy n said...

Twilley, that was a little too much.

Sydney said...

I knew she wasn't going to let Graham go, but I'm glad she saved him for last.



WOw Joy -- I accidenally posted those last three on the Mole, lol

I can't believe she kept twillet after seeing that last part of him during the credits. OK, you are not going to sleep with this guy. Party with him, laugh with him, but not getting into a candlelit dinner with him.

Zoetawny said...

What did Twilley say during the credits? Guess I'll see soon enough. I can't believe she kept Twilley and let Brian go.

joy n said...
She really seems to have a big thing for Graham.
*********
ITA! I think she has her mind set on Graham. Maybe she likes the challenge. He's not fawning all over her like the others. I didn't watch her season on The Bachelor...is her type someone who gives her a hard time?

joy n said...

Twilley didn't say anything really durung the credits. He was singing his song (or maybe it was Brian's song) and doing so badly. At the end of it, he was straining so much, his face was contorted. Kind of creeped me out. And kind of creeped them out, too, I believe.

TerryinCA said...

Bad enough its hot as blazes out here, but she kicked Brian to the curb? BIG MISTAKE, but we are all going to vote for him for Bachelor right?
HOW COULD SHE KEEP TWILLEY???He's weird, and she never got to know Brian!!!
sour grapes here...pass the chocloate ice cream...

joy n said...

I'd definitely watch that Bachelor series. That was a dumb move on DeAnna's part.

sharon said...

Poor Brian,he was doomed almost from the start. No wonder he bonded with the guys,they are all he hung out with. Not fair,Deanna.I think he would be a good next Bachelor.

I know she seems hot for Graham,but he still seems to have commitment issues and can we say...hissy fit? He doesn't like her kissing other guys? Has he ever seen the show before? His comment was something along the line of ...no sloppy seconds for me...how juvenile. I think she would be so wrong to pick him or Jeremey or Jesse or Twilley or Sean and so on. I don't think she's head over heels for any of them.I agree with whomever said she still has major Brad issues.

TerryinCA said...

OK, I stayed up and watched it, come on Deanna, Twilley is not handsome, not even that funny, its pathetic to string him along! All the guys thought he would go. she never gave Brian a chance.
I really think she likes short, slight frame dark haired men. Does Twilley even have much hair?
Im thinking She wants Graham, she is totally attracted to him but he scares the hell out of her.
Im almost at the point that she will pull a Brad and not take any of them.
Businesswise...Jason or Jeremy. Jesse is a sweetheart, but he has no job, he "was" a pro skiboarder.
Sorry but I sort of enjoyed her letting Robert go, thinking she picked Fred.....bad I know.

delee said...

What a show...I was lurking but so tired it was all I could do was to IM back and forth with my daughter, last night. Must be the heat, by 7p I was dragging.

Fred was growing on me so not happy to see him go. Robert had to go, there was just something about him I did not care for. Jesse does clean up nicely, but please ABC, tame that mop of his.

WHY is Twilley still there, ABC must be keeping him underwraps, we know very little about him and D. I would have kept Brian over T any day. I am still not a Jeremy fan and doubt I ever will be, he is too smooth, smug and I just do not like him.

There were some very touching moments with Jason, enough said. I root for Graham every week and somehow end up disappointed. I believe D really wants him to give in and embrace her, he needs to stop whining and chase her.

meb said...

My DVR was messed up on my TV, so I never did see what upset Deanna when she told them if they didn't want to be there to go home. What was that all about.

And I had to come on here to see who she kept and who she sent home.

Strange... kept Twilly?? And to be honest, Jesse is cute, but certainly he can't be her type, so why is she leading that poor guy on. If he is her type, then why was she so hot for Brad? Jesse is going to be crushed when she lets him go.

What were the previews for next week, anything exciting?

RBennie said...

Very interesting show last night. Robert really needed to go - didn't like his attitude at all - and you could tell she was totally turned off by him. I felt bad for Fred, but there was zero chemistry there and it was kinder of her not to lead him on. Deanna is clearly strongly attracted to Graham. If he would put in even a little effort, he would win her hands down. She really wanted that kiss from him last night. I think Jesse, Sean & Twilley are all cannon fodder. The final three will be Jeremy, Jason & Graham. I know a lot of you guys really liked Brian, but he made no real effort to get one-on-one time with her. He seemed content to just hang out with the other guys and have fun. I could totally see why she let him go. I think one of the main reasons she really likes Jeremy is that he is all about her. He drags her off by themselves whenever he can and is always attentive to her. He doesn't seem to care much about being "buds" with the other guys. Jason is a sweetheart and I think she really likes him, but not so much physically. I think she's trying really hard to like him that way, but it looks more forced, not at all the way it is when she kisses Graham or Jeremy.

sharon said...

meb,all the guys just kind of scattered and went off by themselves when she was there for the "party". Robert went off to sulk and she confronted him and one of them was said to be laying down? She then addressed the issue of her having to kiss other guys in order to get to know them and that she knew how much it sucked,but that was the game. They all were kind of acting like little boys instead of men,and it kind of shocked them. I think right then,Robert nailed his ride home,if she hadn't already made up her mind. I also agreed with her statement that Fred will make somebody a great husband,but not her. Nothing real dramatic in the previews for next week,but they are down to 6 left and I think we all know three of them are "go homes" and three are "keepers". I like Jason but don't think she will pick him in the end.

meb said...

Thanks Sharon. I couldn't imagine what they had done to get her reaction like that. She really does cry a lot... I think I've said that before.

You know how you always want what you can't have... that's what I think Graham is doing to her. He's not chasing her around like a little puppy, therefore, she wants more. He's no dummy, but I don't really care for him.

joy n said...

I agree that Jason is probably not going to end up as DeAnna's final choice. I think he's the best of the lot but D doesn't seem to feel "that way" about him.

Last night she made it more obvious that Graham is the one that she is most attracted to. I see him as a bit immature and agree that he is still dealing with committment issues.

Jeremy didn't act quite as smug as on previous episodes. He may now realize that he doesn't quite have this "in the bag" as he had believed.

I also agree the trio of Jessie, Sean and Twilley are pretty much expendable. Jessie will feel the rejection the most.

I'm getting an uneasy feeling that this is going to end up another same-old,same-old ending. I believe she will choose one, more likely Graham, possibly Jeremy, but I don't feel this is going to be a forever-after fairytale ending. Graham's "C" issues will not go away so easily and Jeremy, I think, just wants to win. Neither scenario being a good one for DeAnna.

I may be in the minority here, (or maybe not) but I keep getting this nagging feeling that D is putting the tears on a little thick. Last night's blowup seemed more of a temper tantrum based on her need to be the center of attention here rather than being hurt and the tears seemed "forced". She is reminding me more each week that I didn't care for her during her season with Brad.

Anonymous said...

Last night was the first episode I caught this season. Wow. The guys who were/are left are very ecclectic! Some amazing eye candy for sure! Could someone explain the separate living arrangements for the guys? That was a new one to me.

My take on the Graham situation is a little different, perhaps because I haven't seen previous episodes. Someone will fill me in, I'm sure. To me, I could see where he was coming from. He was the third or fourth guy D pulled aside for private time. Would you want to kiss someone, no matter how attracted you are to them, if you thought he/she had just made out with three other people? He would rather step back than play the game. Plus the "hard-to-get" angle might not hurt either. Just a thought.

One of the many reasons I could never put myself in that type of situation. As if I would ever even register on their list!! Oh well. Have a good one!

TerryinCA said...

joy n I truly believe your instinct are right...this is getting scary...she tossed the guys who she didnt even know to keep the twilley guy who she has no chemistry with...Sean no way, Twilley no way, I would say Graham,Jason & Jeremy have the best shot at being in the finals, and I dont think G will committ..Jason wouldnt move away from Seattle, and Jeremy would plunk hmself down onhis knees so fast her head would spin...

dla said...

Hi everyone!

Well, I just watched online to catch up, and then started at the bottom of the comments...

joy n, I am soooo with you! I reached your comment, and will go back to get caught up with everyone, but this is just not playing out very truthfully, in my opinion.

D was NOT one of my favorites (by a long shot) when she was on The Bachelor, but I was giving her the benefit of the doubt on this go round.

Jesse is going to be crushed. Sean and Twilley still being there is laughable, considering the lack of any type of romantic connection. May I be so bold as to say that her temper tantrum at the bbq was just plain silly, and it feels as though she is "punishing" any of the likely suspects if they don't act just so.

Unless the editing is complete off the mark, she is all about Graham, and I think most of us are in agreement as to where that will end up.

This is beginning to lose its "luster", in my humble opinion. I am excited to go back and read everyone's comments now.

Maybe they should bring either Fred or Brian back as the next Bachelor. :)

dla said...

Do you all think she picks someone at the end of the show, or does she "pull a Brad"??

I just watched the little clip where they ask her if she is in love, and she states that "she is happy with the way things ended up" (or something along those lines)...

In agreement with all who said she is not yet ready to settle down... Brad comes up way too much.

Remind me again why I watch this stuff??? LOL

TerryinCA said...

dla.....Im thinking at some point they bring Brad back when she kicks someone off....he repents and tells her he has gone crazy since he made that decision...and wants her back....RIGHT!!!!NOT!!!

The mere fact she has kept Twilley instead of any of the others (well except the greek guy) tells me she doesnt really know what she wants...she is attracted to graham, and if shaved he might look a bit like Brad...????

dla said...

terryinca, that would be priceless! But, somehow, I believe that Brad has moved on. It appears that he rocked her to her core, and she cannot get past it... What do you think??

You could be right about the resemblance... I will check that out next time I watch.

I still cannot believe she kept Twilley over our Brian... That is just outrageous. :)

Sydney said...

Dla- I caught that little comment too -- she just said she's very happy with the way things turned out. We'll see...

meb said...

Wouldn't it be unreal if she, like Brad, gets to the end and doesn't want any of them. Maybe she just did this show to get back at all men because of what Brad did to her.

And, I still think if she chooses Graham in the end he'll tell her "no". I just don't think he's all that interested in her and he's using the other guys as an excuse to keep her at a distance, which only fuels her need to continue pursuing him.

Well... it could happen.

TerryinCA said...

dla....LMAO at "our Brian" its so true...she kept Twilley the zero..Sean the macho dude..over Brian..the one who wrote the very best song....and it was Twilley mocking Brians song...Brian for Bachelor!!! where do we sign him up?
Doe any of you remember when they announced Deanna, they said so many men had written in and said they wanted to marry her...I wonder if any of these guys actually did that?
Im telling you if she keeps Twilley this next Monday.....I wont be responsible!

Tami said...

I also can't understand why she keeps Twilley, he is a zero. Sean and Jesse are also not interesting and I don't see chemistry btwn them and D. My personal favorite is Jason. I think he is best match for Deanna, but I think that she is really not giving him a chance because she is so obsessed with Graham. She needs to think long term and I don't believe that G will hang around. 'He's just not into you' Deanna. I liked Jeremy at the beginning but now I think that it's the competition not the woman that has him motivated.

TerryinCA said...

Ok gals, has anyone else out there seen the promos for Monday? She's already made up her mind?
Chris Harrison comes in and says "Youa re expecting Deanna, but she's already made up her mind"
WHAT???

Nana in the NW said...

It is Monday?!? What happened? No one is doing a running commentary for us West coasters....Did I miss something in the past week...I've been all over this site and can't find your comments :(

I'll wait until it's on WC time and maybe terryinca and zoetawny will be online.

TerryinCA said...

Hi Nana!
We have been desserted by our east coast friends I think.....Im dying to know whats happening, hard to wait up for it all, but if I must I will!!!

Anonymous said...

Sorry, you guys, I know Sydney is "out of town" and I've had a hectic day, so thought I'd just watch and maybe check out the comments, myself, later on. Here I am and I find no one else was on, either.

The first hour is a kind of "get to know everyone better" episode. I liked it.

Second hour is a regular episode. No more roses given out on dates, only at the rose ceremony.

Sean got first 1-on-1 date. Cablecar up a mountain. Dinner and time together on a hammock. Good date.

Group date: Jason,Jessie, Graham and Twilley. Twil goes up in a helicopter with Deanna for some 1-on-1 time. He mentions that he gets motion sickness. (He needs to contact some of you.) Group date is "Fun in the Sun." 4-wheelin', pool party, I forget what else. Great date!

Jeremy (again, sheesh!) gets 2nd 1-on-1 date. Kind of a retro-date. Palm Springs, Frank Sinatra's home, exactly as he left it. Beautiful place! They sing, they dance. they have a really nice time there.

No cocktail party because D has made up her mind. Rose Ceremony begins.

1st rose - Jeremy

2nd rose - Jason

3rd rose - Graham

4th rose - Jessie

No huge surprises here. Twilley and Sean had to leave.

Next week's preview shows Graham's mom telling DeAnna "Finding someone that lasts past 4 weeks, is difficult for Graham." WHOA!

Sorry this is kind of short and sweet, hope it helps and hope it didn't come too late.

THANK YOU!!! I am so glad to hear Sean and Twil left, I had hoped they would be gone....Im thinking Graham and jeremy have the inside track, I dont like Graham for her, cause he is too held back, and she wants osmeone who will broadcast his love for her...

TerryinCA said...

Joy N---just saw your post THANK YOU GIRLFRIEND!!!!!

joy n said...

S'alright!

Zoetawny said...

Hi nana and terry!
I finally made it online. ;)

I'm thinking it is a possibility that D might not find THE ONE in the end. She has 4 guys (-Twilley & Sean) left and still doesn't know which one is the guy for her then maybe none of them are. I'm not surprised that T & S are out. You know I had to read the spoilers. ;) Maybe when she meets their families her choice might become clearer.

I'm not getting why she's so into Graham. I hope I'm wrong but I think Jason having a son is going to be a problem for D. :(

D didn't seem like the off road 4 wheeling type but guess she loves the adrenaline rush. She seems to want a guy who likes the same excitement. She said Jason was rather strait laced because he wasn't trying to race. Personally, I like that type...safe and reliable. LOL

I'd like to see Graham loose that beard. Some guys look more handsome in a beard but some just look better clean shaven. Hey Sydney, we need your stylist opinion.

I see Jackie has put up a post and I haven't read it yet. I jumped in here first because nana and terry were lonely. LOL

Later~

Hi everyone!

Well, I am West Coast time, so had to watch both hours, and then catch the season opener for Weeds on Showtime.

Random Bachelorette thoughts, in no particular order...

Right now, I am not feeling like she will find what she is looking for in any of the 4 guys remaining. You know those crafty editors are always trying to trick us, so maybe there is something we don't see, but appears to me that they all have qualities she likes, but none of them have it "all"... What do you all think?

I laughed out loud when I saw the preview for next week with Graham's Mom and her comment... Not a good sign! :)

Love Jesse as a friend for her, but still don't see any love connection, and they have not even kissed yet. I guess there have to be 4 for hometown dates.

I also laughed out loud when they showed Sean in his element at home, with the closet full of labels, the tanning bed & sauna in the house, and the mention of many skin care products. Not to mention the Hummer... Not that there is anything wrong with any of that, but I don't see it being a match with D.

I believe one of the things I am most fascinated with is watching from the outside looking in, and noting how many of the guys "felt a connection" that D did not feel. Just like real life, on so many levels, as most of us have been there in the past, but to watch it play out on TV is fascinating in that sort of sad way.

I did like the first hour, although I am unsure that D is really being honest with herself, let alone everyone else involved. Still don't get the hissy fit at the BBQ, even with the additional "explanation" tonite. That reminded me a bit of my 4 year old niece when she is not getting enough attention...

Looking forward to home town dates next week!

PS: Does anyone watch Weeds??

meb said...

Still don't get the Jesse thing. How could you consider him as a possible husband without even having kissed him, yet she chooses him to meet his family. I think he could be a good friend and playmate, but he's not husband material.

I agree about Graham and his beard. He just looks scruffy. I couldn't get over the fact when they were on the hammock and he was talking to her that he never looked at her while he was talking. I also, from the previews, didn't like his brother either. And yes, the comment from his mother that he barely makes it thru 4 weeks of commitment to a girl was very telling. I still think the only reason she's in to him is that he isn't really all that in to her (no pun intended). And she basically said as much.

I also couldn't believe that there haven't been any real kisses... I mean where the guy takes her in his arms and plants one on. Even Jeremy and she in the sauna...he said his heart was beating hard yet both of them had their bodies full front. How do you kiss like that and get a good one.

Sean obviously had money (wonder if it was his or mama's money) and he could keep DeAnna in the way she could become accustomed, but man, was he weird or what. Can you believe that clothes closet... it was bigger than my bedroom, and he had his own tanning booth???

I liked both segments, even tho it appears all I'm doing is complaining, but hey... that's what it's all about here, getting to say what you want without worry.

So who was she crying about in the previews? And if she made up her mind already, which it appeared whoever she was talking to was her choice, how could she make a statement something like 'I'll have to rethink this'... whatever she said. If you're "in love", how can you rethink it, unless she pulls a Brad and doesn't pick anybody.

Gonna be good next week!

sharon said...

Oh man,I was so sure I was going to not watch this and watch Nashville Star and I just couldn't turn away.I think she has made up her mind on somebody and it looks as if the hometwon visit blows that right out of the water next time! But WHO is it?? My guess is Jeremy or Graham. I agree with whomever said it's not going to be Jason,that Ty is just more than she's willing to take on right now.And Jesse......that's just picking one of those last three to make a fourth.I could never see her with him,living her life,working her job with Jesse by her side.

I'm jumping on the #5 option...none of the above,I think she's not going to pick any of them in the end.Does anybody remember,did Trista keep bringing up the Bachelor that dumped her over and over and over and over the way DeAnna does? She's not over what Brad did to her and maybe this was too soon to have tried to replace him.JMO

RBennie said...

Pretty predictable outcome last night as far as Final 4 goes. Only Jesse was a bit of a surprise to me. I thought since she said that if she had a rose to give she would have given one to Sean, that he would have been there instead of Jesse. Doesn't much matter though, Jesse is still cannon fodder, LOL.

I know a few of you questions Jeremy's sincerity, but he sure does say the right things. I thought his line about her not being perfect, but perfect for him was heart melting. It would have had me "droppin the drawers", LOL. But maybe I'm just an easy mark!

TerryinCA said...

Thanks for dropping on us Syd!
Well Im thinking that Graham just wont give her what she needs to pick him, and mama didnt help. I think she WANTS it to be him, but I think she feels that Jeremy is totally into her, an that is what she wants...the safety net feeling. When they asked and she said she was "happy" with the rsults of the whole thing, Im thinking...I would have rather heard "I love the choice i made"
Im thinking Jason might prove too much,geographically and with the cute son.
Graham too standoffish....a challenge but no rewards..
Jesse too much a friend...
Yep, thinkin my money is on Jeremy.

TerryinCA said...

one more thing...if Jeremy's parents are both passed on, I wonder who the friends and family will be?

and Sydney...WHAT SPOILERS????

Nana in the NW said...

This has been one of the most predictable Bachelor(ette)'s ever! We knew from day one that it would be Jeremy, Graham, and Jason. If she picks Graham then she deserves what she gets...another broken heart! With him it's purely physical for her and about "the chase".

I don't really like Jeremy but believe he is there for all the right reasons.

As for Jason...he has too many strikes against him. D doesn't seem to have the chemistry with him.

I, too, have been surpised at how "non-physical" the show has been. There have been some kisses but nothing with passion and lust(do I remember what that's like?). The overnight dates will be interesting.

I see Jesse being Deanna's "Bob Guinney...from Trista" a good lifelong friend.

As we all have learned...who really knows what's happening...so much ends up on the editting room floor that we never see!

Tami said...

I had not planned on watching the show because the couples never seem to work out, but I decided to watch the 1st episode and...well I haven't missed one. My favorite from the beginning has been Jason and I still love him, so if Deanna doesn't want him, I DO!!
I liked Jeremy at the beginning but as time goes by, I think that he is too smooth. He says all of the right things but I just don't buy it. I admit, I am a cynic when it comes to men and maybe that is why I am still single in my forties. Anyway, Graham is hot to look at, but Deanna needs to get a clue...he is just not ready for a commitment. He is not going to be the ONE no matter how much she wants him to be. I agree with all of you regarding Jesse, he is just not a romantic match for Deanna. I think that the reason that he hasn't kissed her is because he knows that and doesn't want to end the fantasy at this point.
I just hope for Deanna's sake that she really thinks this through with her head more than her heart at this point. Physical attraction is essential, but that only takes you so far if you want the relationship to last for any duration.

TerryinCA said...

When Deanna was on the show "Deanna tells all" she said "everybody wants me to like jeremy,Jeremy,jeremy...." Im thinking either she said that to throw everyone off the track, or she really isnt into him at all.
I adore Jason, but I dont see thatas a match...Graham..needs a clue to grow up..sure he's cute, but thats it, he's making her persue him....bottom line
I think Jeremy would be into her the way she wants him to be....

joy n said...

Already sounding in the preview like Graham did something to p.o. DeAnna off. One is leaving tonight. Maybe him?

joy n said...

Jesse and DeAnna snowboarding in his hometown. She's looking for that first kiss.

No kiss yet, but he's carrying her while he snowboards. Rather romantic, I think.

Meeting his parents after the break.

joy n said...

Showing her his home.

His parents are cool. His dad is funny. They seem to like her.

The parents waited twelve years to have Jessie. He is loved. Nice family.

She says to his dad, "No matter what happens in end, I feel truly blessed to have met Jessie, he is truly an amazing man."

A carriage ride. HE KISSED HER! Very nice kiss.

joy n said...

Jeremy's hometown. They take a motorcycle ride. He has a beautiful home. Cute dog. Looking thru pic album. His mother was very pretty. He read a very touching excerpt that was written when his mom died. Made me cry.

His family: two brothers and a sister-in-law. After the break.

joy n said...

I don't know, but both Jessie and Jeremy seemed very sincere in discussing their feelings for her.

Sydney said...

HI Joy and gals (and any guys, if you are lurking)--

I am back as of late last night but am really wiped out for many reasons, so am not my old self tonight. However, I dragged myself to the computer, and have to say that I WANT to believe Jeremy but something seems ingenuine to me. If he's genuine, then she should pick him. I think the little previews of her putting the guy who she does not pick into the car is about sending Graham home.

If she does that she will really be serious. I KNOW how hard it is when you get chemistry like that, It's not only guys whose brains go out the window in the face of that kind of woo-woo.

Jesse is a truly cool guy. I hope she realizes he will have a nicer, bigger, better apartment someday... especially if she is with him, lol.

Sydney said...

OK, superficial comment... but it has been on my mind from the beginning.... does it look like someone socked Jeremy in the nose?

Sydney said...

Jeremy is definitely a gentleman... he stood up for her as she left the table to talk with his sister.

Sydney said...

Here is the sister in law telling her that he is indeed sensitive etc... Can we believe that then? If she sends Graham home I think Jeremy is the shoe in.

JAson is adorable and cuddly and sweet but probably not sexy and rough enough for her.

Now the bros are telling him that they will be more protective of him with DeAnna, so he won't get too hurt... so maybe he IS sensitive and genuine.

joy n said...

He made a promise to his mom that he would marry someone she would be proud of. DeAnna says that's a lot to live up to.

Sister-in-law (girl time) speaks well of him to D.

Brothers are watching his back. They're "on Jeremy's side." She got nervous, had sweaty palms. She has "genuine" feelings for him. Bros don't want to see him hurt.

They kiss. She says she would "fit" into his family. He says she is "definitely" the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with.

Sydney said...

When talking to Sean's Dad DeAnna spoke about him well but not in totally serious terms. But Nana, the kiss when they had it looked pretty intense. I know what you mean about how light all the kisses have been. I have to say though, if I opted to do this on TV and had a career, etc... I would have said outright, I am not going to do tonsil hockey with 'all for the world to see, or if I do, I want it written in my contract that you can't put it in the show.

Looks like it went well with Jeremy's fam. He knows how to say the right things. And they are quite physical with each other... their kiss was the best so far.

joy n said...

Hey, Sydney, welcome back. He does look like he got whacked in the nose.

Sydney said...

oops -- read back and Joy, you put the quote to Jesse's dad that I was talking about... and I made a mistake and said it was Sean's dad, sorry. That quote made me think he was NOT the one.

joy n said...

Jason. I doubt he has a chance. MPO.

She's "hoping" for something to be there.

joy n said...

Jason and his son have a VERY touching reunion. She really likes seeing him with his son, says there is no doubt Jason is a good father. Re-thinking the step-mom thing.

joy n said...

Jason's family: His mom, dad, two bros and a sister-in-law.

They make her feel welcome. They ask some tough questions. They give Ty the "STAR" gift. He likes it. The family plays leapfrog in the back yard. Cool!

Dad discusses the step-mom thing with D. She's open to it.

Mom talks to Jason about possibly getting hurt.

Jason saying goodbye to Ty again was really hard. Tears again.

Jason IS "falling in love."

joy n said...

Now for "HOT" Graham. At his old high school. Have new jerseys waiting, both with his last name. Shoot some baskets. She really has feelings for him. Her face lights up when she talks to him.

TerryinCA said...

joym MORE!!!!!!!WHAT HAPPENED!!!!

joy n said...

Blog is acting up. Can't get thru everytime.

Rose ceremony -

1st to Jesse

2nd to Jeremy

3rd to Jason

Graham took it well at first. She says he wouldn't let his guard down. Says she is saying good-bye to the one person she was falling in love with. He wrote a note only for her, not for the show. Wants her to read it one day. She is genuinely shedding tears. She reads the note.

joy n said...

The blog was acting up, wouldn't take my comments.

The one that wouldn't go thru at all: His family: his mom and dad. They also ask D. some tough questions. Mom makes the"4 week" statement, says he's a bit of a loner. Sounds like she's warning D.

DeAnna tries to talk to Graham, asks him what's on his mind. "Everything", he says, but won't talk to her. He says he handles everything internally. She wants him to open up, but he says, "That's the way I am."

Then the rose ceremony.

dla said...

OK, hold the phone!!! lol

I thought I should take a teenie tiny peek into the blog after all the previews, and whoa! Had a feeling it had to do with Graham, but was not sure with all the chemistry stuff.

Stopping now, and will pop back in after show airs out here on the left coast!

joy n said...

The preview mentions Graham's note. Maybe we'll hear what it says after all?

joy n said...

Terry, this was a good episode. If you can, you should watch it, too.

TerryinCA said...

If he told her it was just for her, I dont think she will read it on air...shes pretty strong about confidences.
So, now do they all go to her hometown, or is it the exotic location deal?
Im rooting for Jeremy, I like what he said about "I dont just want her, I need her"

Sydney said...

Sorry Joy -- you are probably gone already. I have been feeling so blue, discombobulated and exhausted after this trip, I knew if I could get out to the park to see and feed the ducks I would feel better. I put Bachelorette on Tivo and ran out before the sun went down. Had to drive there though, and it's only 4 blocks away--- yes, that is how tired I am. I am going to not look at any comments below your asking where I went. I meant to write to you I'd be going out but I am so spacey I literally forgot. Will go watch the rest now.

I just need a few days and hopefully I will be back to normal.

TerryinCA said...

oh Joy, I hope I can stay up...I worked today (Nanny for a 18 month old) 7-5:30, I have a slight fever, my throat is sore, Im exhausted....but I do want to see it....thanks so much cause if I cant stay up at least I know she bounced Graham...she was falling in lust with him anyway......that "internal" bs turns me off....she did good kicking him to the curb (am I mean or is the fever?)

joy n said...

Be back in the AM to read all your comments. G'night all.

joy n said...

Oops! Terry, It's not meanness or the fever. He deserved it. He was a little too sure of her feelings for him, I think, and thought she would continue to "chase" him. She finally wised up. Good for her.

Sydney, it's okay. You even sounded tired in your first comment tonight. This was a really good episode. More of everyone's real feelings came out tonight. Enjoy!

G'night again.

Sydney said...

Woah, great episode tonight.

When they walked out, Graham was pissy and immature in some of the things he said. I just wanted to jump up and shout at the TV because he created the problem himself by shutting down. It's a roller coaster ride to be with someone like that -- I know, I've dated several!!!

That type can be very enticing... you keep wanting to pull out of them what you see in there as good... but it's exhausting and you never really win that battle. I went with someone from when I was age 18 like that... He looked like John Kennedy Jr.... talk about chemistry! We tried again around 24, then 34, then 39 and again at 42. I just saw him again.. he's 50 now, going out with yet another woman for 5 years who is really pissed he is not even close to marrying her nor can he talk much about it. Another one, who I loved MADLY but left when I was 23 because I thought he could never pull the trigger, is 56 now and never has married. DeAnna was really smart.

I was so upset for her when he pulled out that note. What torture!! I can totally understand why she is doubting her decision but really, he can write the note but in the end, she would get fed up and leave, ripped more to shreds over him than she ever was over Brad. Graham did look really very deeply upset himself, and I think that was genuine, but take thineself to a therapist young man if you really hurt so it won't happen again.

What was interesting is that she said, THIS is the guy I was falling in love with. The rest are great, and she knows that, but she's not in love with them.

dla said...

Wow! I am not sure that I have ever cried while watching The Bachelorette, but I did weep a few tears tonight.

Each home town visit was very touching in its own way, and there are going to be some broken hearts at the end of this.

Do you think she pulls a Brad and does not choose any of them??

dla said...

I was trying to find something on Jason's ex ~ Feels like there is a "story" there.

Found this, and thought it was interesting ~

"Anonymous said...
Jason is a good guy...I know his ex-wife Hilary. She left him out of the blue for no other reason that she didn't want to be married or be a mom anymore. She decided Art classes were more important than her son. He is a wonderful father and has full custody. He was left broken hearted but has handled everything amazingly. He is a genuine person that deserves real love.

sharon said...

Morning All!Like Syd,I was just too mentally exhausted last night to get on and comment,AND,I missed almost half of the show,so missed Jesse and Jeremy's visits,so thanks,Joy,for filling us all in!

I do agree that Jason is a good guy and I sure hope he doesn't get hurt. I don't think,for all her assurances otherwise,that she is ready to be an instant Mom. And he is kind of wary(don't blame him)and he's more mature(he IS a Dad)and think she's still looking to "live" a little with the man she chooses.

I'm glad she axed Graham,he'd never change,some guys are always just like that(right,Sydney)...uh,hello,Brad Womack!And I do think it's a telling sign that she says G was the ONLY one she was starting to fall in love with. I hope,if she truly doesn't love any of the other three,she cuts them all loose. I liked that Jesse didn't seem to go for the overnight next week,hmmmmm.

Oh,and saw the doctor yesterday,we decided to wait another three months,then repeat the ultrasound and probably do a biopsy then. I feel much better about things after seeing this doctor.Anybody heard a peep from Jackie?

joy n said...

Sharon, hope things continue to go well for you. I have ultrasounds on my legs tomorrow. I've never had one before. Are they like X-rays?

Back to Bachelorette. DeAnna did seem to doubt her decision about Graham after reading that note. That statement about G being the only one she was falling in love with says so much. If she chose another at this late date, that relationship would have to be doomed, not to mention that her intentions would be in doubt.

I'm wondering now if she will choose none of the three and, then afterwards, try to make things work with Graham again. I think she'd be a fool to do that but, that note seemed to really effect her.

Next week is the overnight episode and the "Men Tell All" episode, and I saw that Graham was there in the preview. We'll have to watch his and D's reactions to each other. To tell the truth, I think both these individuals have relationship issues and could use some counseling.

meb said...

Watched the show. Everbody has pretty much said it all. I can't imagine she's going to pick one of the other guys if she was so in to Graham. Just doesn't make sense.

I don't think Jesse is going to get too hurt afterall. He impressed me when talking to his father and he seems to have his head on straight.

And I think Jason has it under control...after all he has Ty to go back to. They were so cute together.

So that leaves Jeremy, and while he was my pick from the beginning, I just don't think she cares for him enough to marry him, even tho she says he has everything she's looking for.

Zoetawny said...

Hey guys!

Unfortunately I missed the 6/23rd episode and forgot to dvr it. I'm going to have to try and watch it online. Meeting the families had to be most telling and interesting.

I really appreciated reading all your comments here since I was so disappointed that I missed it.

I've been thinking for a while now that D will end up pulling a "Brad". Even with the choices of all the guys on this show you just can't force yourself to fall in love.

sydney...

It's good to see you back. I was wondering if you were back from your trip. I hope you've caught up on some rest and feel chipper again. Jet lag can really wear you down.

sharon...

I'm glad to hear no news is good news. Stay positive.

joyn...

I'm glad you feel comfortable with this new specialist. Please do let us know about your ultrasound. Thanks for all your posting so that I can get a feel for what I missed.

monty924 said...

You all actually have me interested in watching the Bachelorette this season. I've been reading but not posting. I've had to move in with my mother temporarily to take of things for her. She has dementia and she's really progressing from mild to moderate quickly. I'm hoping to find some respite services because my own home is starting to feel the neglect. My cat is starved for attention everytime I return home to see her and spend time with her. I try to daily but I'm not always able to. :(

I watched Graham's Diary of the Departed and I just don't see him all that into Deanna. I think we will see some fireworks next week on the Tell All show and may be surprised to find out that Deanna is really into one of the other guys as well. That's the romantic sap in me.

I'm still hoping it is Jason. :)

sharon said...

I think Deanna may ditch all the remaining three and try and see if it works with Graham. I know she made the claim that when she sent him home,she'd never see him again,but think the minute she read that note,she was second guessing herself.Maybe G will "tell all" this next week about the note.

So,if she's not "in love" with one of the last three now,she has what....three weeks left to do so?
I truly feel she still has such "issues".she'd be better off going off and healing for a while. I thought this was much too soon,if her feelings were as deep as she claimed for Brad.I like Jason,too,but don't want to see him hurt.

TerryinCA said...

meb....you are spot on its almost like the death knell when they say "he is so perfect"...myself I think he is the best for her..Jesse may be too good for her, and Jason with that adorable boy, she would have to share, and I think she wont want that but who knows. I picked Jason and Jeremy from the start, and of course graham...but I think he was the hot challenge for her...I felt that he was camera shy the whole time, and couldnt get over all these people listening into them and watching them kiss....she was so chasing him and any of the remaining guys who sees the show about hot hot she thought he was would think....sheesh! What am I chopped liver?

joy n said...

E!online.com has an interview with Graham. If DeAnna has any ideas about connecting up with him after the season is over, she can forget about it.

Graham says that although they had a special connection, he is done associating with DeAnna, even casually. He doesn't believe they were right for each other or that it would ever be healthy for them to be friends.

He thinks that Jeremy or Jason would be the best husband for her with a preference for Jason.

There's more to the interview and if you get the chance, you should check it out. He is VERY honest.

Sydney said...

THanks for that Joy -- I am still trying to find it as it sounds VERY interesting, but I cam across an interview with Twilley on realityTVworld.com who predicts she'll end up with Jesse... said it appeared once edited like there was little chemistry between them but

"Jesse's the guy that she always kind of went over and was talking to anytime she had a chance," Twilley told reporters during the call. "I just see a lot of sparks between them, that's all."

Twilley added he also saw chemistry between Pappas and Jeremy, however he was quick to add Jeremy's a "pretty intense guy" and their personalities don't "fit."

There's an interview with Sean there too but I wasn't interested enough to look, lol

Sydney said...

After Monday's show it's "The Men Tell All...

Here's a description I picked up:
DeAnna and Graham will both be put on the hot seat for a revealing question and answer session with Chris Harrison. Then the Bachelorette and Graham address each other for the first time since his painful rejection. Tempers flare as they argue over her decision to send him home, and Graham also shares the details of what he wrote in a secret letter he left for DeAnna.

Sydney said...

On July 14th from 8-9 PM on ABC there is a scheduled program called Bachelorette, the Engagement party... HMMM!!!!

dla said...

So, just read the Graham interview, and what do you all make of this??

“I don’t believe you are missing anything in the edit of Jesse. I think you are missing something in the editing of Deanna.”

My personal opinion is that she would have picked Graham in a New York minute if she thought he was into her, but she was so afraid that he would not reciprocate that she had to let him go. Sounds (through editing?) like they may go at it a bit on the Men Tell All Show...

I saw a blurb with her saying something along the lines of "I just didn't see foever with you" to Graham. Maybe a little bit of projecting his true feelings?!?

I rewatched last week's episode online, and noticed that she jumped up and down with excitement when she saw Graham, and that Jason jumped up and down with excitement when he saw DeAnna... No jumping of any kind from Jesse, Graham, or Jeremy. Kinda sums it all up.

joy n said...

I really hope that she doesn't end up with Jason. How could she possibly be in love with Graham through last week (and she obviously was) and now profess to be in love with any of the others? Jason and his son could be hurt. I'd hate to see Jessie hurt, but he's taking things at a slow pace (even if she's not at this point) and I think he's probably the most sensible of all. After last week's show, I believe Jeremy could be hurt too.

It's just that after this fiasco with Graham and her unreciprocated love for him, I'd find it a bit hard to believe if she suddenly was "in love" with any of the others.

If there is an engagement party in July, that triples my doubts of her sincerity.

And, if somehow, she ends up with Graham again, I really don't see him doing a sudden 180 at this point and settling down.

For all DeAnna's complaining about the guys not opening up enough to her, how much has she really opened up to anyone but Graham?

joy n said...

Reality TV World now also has an interview with Graham. It's a long one but even more detailed than the ET one. He is definitely NOT in love with DeAnna and hints that he's met someone new.

Tonights two shows ought to be verrrry interesting.

dla said...

joy n, I completely agree with all you said in your post. Her true feelings were for Graham, and anything different at this stage will be suspect. None of them deserve to be hurt... after all, hasn't that been her "mantra" throughout the season?? (How she opened up to Brad, he led her on, she ended up with a broken heart, yada yada)

I will check out the article that you mention ~

I also read online that Jeremy was a bit loaded and hit on his ex-girlfriend at a party in Dallas since the season ended, so they are predicting that he was not selected.

See you tonight! Should be a good one.

Zoetawny said...

joy and sydney...

Thanks for helping me catch up since I missed the show last week. I'm going to check out the interview now.

I'm going to try to live blog with all of you tonight on the EC live feeds.

Here's the link if anyone on the WC needs it.

See you all tonight!

Well, after my trolling for Joy's article last night, I found way more interviews than I imagined and a spolier forum for graham on realitytv.com. I have a feeling I know who is going tonight, and who she ends up with and how, and I am now really juiced to see it happen, and see if it seems real.

I think I'm in the minority, reading the other boards, but I'm VERY glad she let Graham go, regardless of if she had the most chemistry and connection with him. He didn't have the qualities that would give her anything but heartbreak and MUCH sooner than later, no matter how eloquently he speaks about it in the interviews.

We all wanted Jason and Jeremy in the end. I think both have a lot of the right stuff... if Jason is not too "nice" for her, I think he is the one that could really give her everything she wants BUT the bad boy thing. In the end, after miles and miles of confusing boys, puzzles and mysteries, on and off agains', chasing me then disappearing boys, and about 100 other ways to describe them, the NICE, SOLID, KIND guy WILL appeal.

Deanna is young, but I think she really knows what she wants... and was temporarily waylayed by her loins (lol, I've been there). I give her credit for saying, I don't want to spend a lifetime pulling things out of you (or feeling more for him than he does for her). I don't know that I could have that level a head amid all the pheremones. If she managed to do that, she is sharp and serious. That said, I think maybe Jason has a chance, or even Jesse (maybe not).

Jeremy,perfect as he is, just seems hollow somehow. He has the right clothes, the right apartment and furnishings, lives in a decent city, etc... But I don't know... Jason just seems to have a warmth and be such a love bug, I don't know... what do you all think????

Sydney said...

Deanna talks about leaving Graham behind, not sure where this can go now, but the repeated her quote that she first and foremost wants to be in love. Goes to the island and is meeting Jeremy first.

Jeremy is such a striking looking guy... but is looking very uncomfortable on their dinner date. Giggling and stuff. But now he's coming around and saves it! She looks very happy.

He goes to the suite with her.

Sydney said...

Again, Deanna is doing not real open mouthed kisses while those cameras are around (I'd find it hard to do too). But that fantasy suite door always closes at some point!!!

Grand Bahama Islands.

Ist date with Jeremy. Small isle, jet skis. He says he can't see a life without her. Told her he's in love with her. They went to the private room. She says she is on cloud nine and can see spending the rest of her life with him.

Zoetawny said...

I made it. YEA! Where are you guys? Just listening to Jeremy now.

sydney...

I tend to agree with your latest post. But...oh oh...D's on cloud 9with Jeremy.

I will fall over if she chooses Jesse. I think D wants more than a snowboarder.

Sydney said...

Jason second date up -- he is so excited to see her, her runs to her just like he did on the hometown date... He says he is falling in love with Deanna and is excited about that.

He says he has a real fun side to him, he travels a lot and likes to be out of his element. Deanna says she likes seeing him not play it safe.

Zoetawny said...

Jason is more exciting than Jeremy and I think D likes that. He may not be the "bad boy" that she's attracted to but he's full of enthusiasm, especially for her. She seems to need that all focused attention on her.

Sydney said...

Jason certainly lets her be in charge...

joy n said...

2nd date is with Jason. This is a really beautiful place. Jason wants to tell her he is falling completely in love with her. A romantic picnic. Jason thinks "We are a couple today". Kayaking, which neither has ever done before. They laughed a lot. She believes date has brought them closer together.

Sydney said...

OK, third time we see Jesse reject the fantasy suite. How much you wanna bet he is just totally kidding?

Zoetawny said...

It seems pretty obvious that Jesse is O-U-T. Unless I'm wrong. ;)

Sydney said...

I think she likes that kind of guy, unless he let's her walk all over him.

Sydney said...

I agree Zoe about her needing all that attention (don't we all like that!) but we all know that give it about 1 1/2 years and that can diffuse into daily life. Something tells me Jason could keep it up.

As much as I want her to go with Jason of all of them, there is kind of a geeky not sexy thing about him... does anyone else get that? Jeremy seems sweet and damaged, but a bit hotter. Jason is really cute when he smiles, and certainly is more self posessed when he speaks. He does have more confidence than shy Jeremy. Both are vulnerable guys in diffeernt ways.

Zoetawny said...

I think I'm in love with Jason. LOL

Sydney said...

Like Deanna's hair up in the front like that.
