First of all, I’d like to start this blog thanking Jill Biden for liking one of my Tweets! That’s right, I’m now one less degree of separation from the White House. Woot! Woot!
This episode started off with the first Group Date of the Season, which included: Jackie, LB, Lauren H, Becca, Amber, Mandi, JoJo, Jubilee, Jennifer, & Lace. We got plenty of #Laceface tonight! They went to Bachelor High – I totally wanted them to break out into Grease songs starring Ben as Danny Zuko. Chris Harrison should have played that xylophone over the PA System like Principal Magee’s assistant. The women had to pair up & compete; the final girl wound up being the Homecoming Queen & got to wear Ben’s Letterman jacket. That crazy ass dentist, from Oregon, who was high as a kite – won!
The girls on this date, “I’ve never been this turned on in a high school before.”
Lace dominated this entire Group Date by starting every single conversation with, “I promise I’m not crazy…” This is code for Run Ben, Run!!! My unREAL intuition it telling me that the producers are making him keep her for a bit. Whah, whah!
Date 2 was a 1 on 1 with Caila. Kevin Hart & IceCube showed up to escort them around on their date. It was lame…clearly there to promote Ride Along 2. Finally, we get to their 1 on 1 dinner. Ben & Caila had great conversation & seemed to have a connection. Caila did forget to mention that she had dumped her last boyfriend in the hopes of making it on the Bachelor…that aside, she does seem to have a good head on her shoulders for how young she is. Like all 1 on 1’s, it ended with an awkward concert…my favorite! Note the sarcasm. However, I am a fan of Amos Lee & chose to ignore the poorly dancing couple making out.
Side Note: it breaks my heart when Ben says that he thinks he might be unlovable. 😦
Group Date 2 was for Emily (twin), Shushanna, Samantha, Olivia, Haley (other twin), & Amanda. This date was kind of interesting, as they went to a Love Test Lab. They had to do retina, body heat, & sweaty stench tests. I think I’d rather endure a conversation with Lace & Ashley S than have Ben smell my sweat! However, I’d smell his sweat…probably lick it too. 😀 Basically, Olivia was a condescending bitch to the women, while doing everything right to get Ben’s focus.
My idea of the awkwardness of the Love Lab date.
At the rose ceremony, Ben made a huge effort to make the gals feel special. I LOVED the barrettes moment with Amanda for her daughters. Luckily, Olivia & Lace made a spectacle early on in the cocktail party, so we were able to move on quickly. I’m so proud that one of them women had the courage to say, “Hey Ben, I do not accept your rose.” You go LB! If you will recall, this hasn’t happened since Brad Womack’s second season.
