I'm a HUGE Bachelor/Bachelorette fan, and I'm so happy the new season of the Bachelorette just kicked off on Monday! I'l be live-tweeting every episode, so chat with me @ClaireScatter if you're a member of Bachelor Nation, too!
And... if you're single... GET ON THE SHOW! There's a Bachelor casting event in Baltimore in a couple weeks!
Producers will be at Maryland Live! Casino on Thursday, June 13, 5pm-9pm. Both men and women are invited, as they're looking for 25 single ladies and one brand new lucky Bachelor!
More details are available HERE and if you go, watch for The Kane Show from our sister station, Z104.3!
As for this season... My weekly review with SPOILERS:
First few episodes are tough... sorting through the massive group to find a jem or two... Or at the very least weed out the psychos. My take on the stand-outs is below!
Des is going to be a great Bachelorette! I wasn't sold on her but the second she kicked out Mr. Fantasy Suite, I knew she was awesome! Also, she had the good sense to send Larry the Doctor packing... Am I the only one that thought he was a creep?
So far, I think Abs McAbs is hilarious, and will turn out to be a front-runner. Ben is this season's Bentley, for sure... even down to the kid card! Ben-tley. I know no one will agree with me on this one, but every time Hashtag Man says "hashtag" before a sentence, I CRACK UP. I'm digging it! Its funny! Robert looks like a Prince from a storybook, and henceforth shall be called Prince Robert. Bios are not yet available on the ABC website (GASP!) but I'm sure they'll be ready by next week. Let's all just take a minute to say thanks that Juan Pablo aka My Fifa Husband got a rose. Also, the sign-inventor? Really..? You invented signs? Okay, Leonardo Da Vinci, you're lucky you're one of the top 3 most handsome guys on the show. Converse sneakers with a tux? Again, you're lucky you're so handsome, Kristen Stewart. Butterflies was... interesting...? That, to me, was the most shocking rose of the night! Seemed like a sweet guy but I was totally shocked Des was into him. The Army Vet with the adorable dog, who he calls "his best friend," is definitely getting to hometowns! He's the Bachelor Hero. Sidenote, a friend of mine pointed out... its an almost entirely brunette group of guys! No better way to say "I'm over Sean" than to have a cast of 25 dudes who look absolutely NOTHING like him. Well played, Des.
Until next Monday, Bachelor Nation!
