The Bachelorette in Munich!
I finally had some time to watch this week’s episode of The Bachelorette. I have to admit that I’m pretty bored with this season. The previews make the show look awesome and dramatic, but truthfully, it’s falling short. I never thought I’d say this, but I miss Vienna. Sigh.
So, anyway, this week’s episode took place in Munich, Germany. Once the guys land, they get settled in at the Kempinski. The suite looked awesome, and I seriously wouldn’t have even needed to leave the room. Forget Des! Chris gets the first one-on-one date, which is weird since he’s already had one. She must really like him. I think Chris is cute, but he’s also really dorky. Still, Des and Chris do seem to click. Chris revealed in last week’s episode that he writes poetry. He burdened us with one lousy poem he wrote, and then he did it again this week. It was pretty agonizing, actually, but Des ate it up. I mean, it’s a sweet gesture, but the poem itself was just way too cheesy for me.
Also on their date, Bryden decides he can’t spend another night on the show, so he tracks Des down on her date with Chris to dump her. Why the heck did he fly all the way to Germany just to dump her? I don’t like him.
Anyway, at one point, Chris and Des go into a store and buy a meat stick. It’s like a Slim Jim, of sorts, so of course they each stick an end in their mouths and then chew to each other. There’s nothing like sucking on a meat log together!
At dinner, Des and Chris make out a little. Then Des tells Chris that she has another surprise in store for him! They walk into a different room and---there’s another musician I’ve never seen in my entire life there to perform a private concert just for them!!! YAY!! Apparently, this guy’s name is Matt White. Can we all just please have a moment of silence for Matt White’s dead career? Over before it started.
The next day, a group of guys get to go on a date with Des. Zak, my beefcake favorite, is on this date, which makes me happy. I want Zak to be the next bachelor. Anyway, Des and da boyz go up the highest mountain in Germany. Don’t ask me what it is because I have no idea. Just because I live in Germany doesn’t mean I know anything, ok? Anyway, they take turns yodeling with some man on top of the mountain. I thought that part was hysterical. Hubs thought it was just ok. Then they all get on some sleds and sled down the mountain, which looked totally awesome and fun. Some gals have all the luck. Then the group goes to this ice house to hang out, which also looks cool. Des makes out with everyone (separately, of course). Des says, once again, that she loves how these guys are willing to try everything. What else are they supposed to do, Des?? D’oh.
Brooks gets the date rose, and I think Brooks would also be a good choice for Des. Good for Brooks.
The best part of the show, though, was the two-on-one date with Des, Ben, and Michael. Michael, an attorney, is determined to make Ben look bad on the date, and wow, is he a real ass. He keeps accusing him of being a hypocrite: he’s not a good dad, he’s not a good Christian, he’s not here for the right reasons, blah, blah, blah. The trio take a floating hot tub on a lake, which looks awesome. After, they have a really awkward dinner, which Ben leaves halfway through because Michael is just being a major douche. Michael gets his wish when Des gives him the rose over Ben. Ben refuses to have Des walk him out, but she follows him anyway. They hug it out, then Ben leaves. Back at the hotel, the guys cheer when Ben’s bag disappears. Ben has a quasi-meltdown in the limo, asking the camera where they’re getting drunk tonight. He also says, “Hello, Hollywood!” Hmmm, perhaps he really was a jerk. What am I saying? They all are.
This week’s rose ceremony took place in a castle. Des looks absolutely stunning in her black gown. She sits down with Chris B. Harrison for some real talk. In the words of Hubs, this is how her talk with Chris went, “Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah.” She also tells Chris she needs no mingling tonight because she’s confident in her decision. Casey and Drew are disappointed because they wanted to tell Des about what they heard James saying, which basically amounted to him being there for the exposure and he can get some hot pieces of booty once he’s home.
At the rose ceremony, Des greets the guys by walking down a lot of stairs. Chris (the contestant) is wearing an off scarf with his suit. He looks ridiculous. Everyone else looks half in the bag. Just kidding, but they probably wish they were.
Poor Mikey did not get a rose, but James did. Drew looks heartbroken because he doesn’t think James deserves to be there. Drew vows that the truth will be heard. Next week, it looks like James will be exposed, which should hopefully be awesome.
