    No point in doing a weekly thread for this, since it looks like there's not much interest. The last 2 bachelors have been pretty blah. I don't think that Tierra is smart enough to plan a stunt like to get a rose, but if she is, kudos to her. She was my front-runner to win, but now I'd like to see her gone. I'm all for drama, but she's going over-the-top.
    (and next week seems to be no different, but Sean finally sees the light)
    What's the deal with Selma? I guess we have different definitions of "taking it to the next level". No kissing? Has she seen this show before? I would have sent her packing right there, but I'm shallow :D I have no rooting interest in this show anymore, but I'll continue to watch to see who Sean ends up with for the next 6 months.

    I'm not done watching this week's ep yet, but yeah, re: Selma's no kissing, I'd have probably sent her packing too. I don't think people should go onto such a show if they're that strict about kissing.

    Ok. I finally finished. Ugh! I really dislike Tierra. Hope she gets sent home.

    It seems like every season has to have a villain. I'd imagine the producers have gotten pretty good make sure a few of those get in each cast.

    I'm a bit annoyed that there are 2 2 hour eps next week. It's becoming too much time commitment. Hope ABC doesn't do that again.

    Anyone watch the 2/4/13 ep? Man, the producers sure now how to pick villians.

    UGH!!! I really hope Tierra gets sent packing soon. She is just ridiculous.

    Yeah...I was pulling for her at the beginning, but she's way over the top now. Did Daniella really say "she can't stand drama"? It must be pretty cold in her glass house. :rolleyes:

    They do seem to have at least one crazy person each season. Pick any 25 women who apply to be on the Bachelor and at least one is bound to be a mean, crazy, villian-type. I don't hope she goes home, I hope she has a total melt-down!

    I'm thinking that story about her best friend dying is a lie. Before she told Sean, she told the cameras "she gotta do what she's gotta do" to get the rose.

    Can you imagine if that was a lie, and she ended up getting picked at the end? I'm pretty sure that would be the end of the relationship.

    I'm not sure if Sean is quite as big a skeezebag as some of the previous bachelors *cough* Jake *cough* but he's pretty bad. He deserves the Tierra drama. Every time someone tries to warn him about her he sends them home.

    I don't think he is a skeezebag.

    I think he is incredibly boring.

    I have never seen the Bachelor before this season - my first exposure to the franchise was the Bachelorette last season. When they said he would be the next Bachelor, I knew it would be Dullsville.

    They shoulda picked Ari - THAT would have been fun!

    Bachelor Pad has even more drama. They choose those previous contestants that brought nothing but.

    As far as Sean goes, I think he's a nice guy. Boring? Not so much. Now Ben? Man was he a stiff. And the women were fawning all over him!

    This show cracks me up though. The women act like they are the last man on earth. And I love how the always credit the Bachelors for those wonderful/romantic getaways. Um no! It's not the Bachelor it's friggin' ABC footin' the bill!!

    Exactly! That was the most annoying thing about it. Of course, they're not going to say much of anything or only tell him vague things. He just blows off the remarks about Tierra or problem girls and sends them home. :thumbsdown:

    Ben was also blowing off people who warned him.

    The "Women Tell All" ep for this season's going to be real interesting. Assuming Tierra gets the boot, I wonder if she'll show up and how she'll explain herself.

    Sucks that Tierra didn't get the boot. I really do wonder if Tierra is faking most/every incident just to get attention from Sean.

    I'm not surprised about Selma being sent home. Her no kissing until this ep really put her at a disadvantage.

    Selma was a gonner when she refused to jump into the lake.

    I knew exactly who was going home before he even started giving the roses out.

    I think that he has narrowed the pack to the women with whom he is genuinely interested - it should get interesting now.

    Lord help me, this made me laugh!

    Was anyone else thinking how inconsistent it was for her to be sitting there with her huge boobs half showing talking about how kissing a man will shame her parents?
    If it were true that kissing a man will make her an outcast in her culture or whatever then it kinda sucks that she did it and then immediately got sent home. Kinda felt like Sean saw kissing her as a challenge and then as soon as they kissed he wasn't interested anymore.

    Who didn't know that Tierra was going to show up at the party even though Sean told her to stay in the room and rest? I wish he had insisted she not come and had told her he would have her taken back to her room if she disobeyed! :D
