    I really hope Emily and Little Ricky don't get hurt. I actually hope Emily falls for none of these guys, because if she does, what are the chances of it lasting? Even Chris Harrison is getting divorced.

    Some of the guys:

    Helicopter Guy: what a *****. And what is a "luxury brand consultant"? Sounds made-up to me. Emily is not going to be impressed with his claims of "having a few dollars in his pocket". The Hendrick family is a North Carolina dynasty and I am sure Emily has more money than this guy.

    Egg Carrying Guy: reminded me of "guard and protect your heart", but in a way, a single mom might like the sentiment. It's going to be bad when that egg gets sat upon or boiled in a hot tub.

    Black Guy: never had a chance.

    Former football player : seems really sweet but needs a new haircut.

    Guy with a kid: he will last till the end.


    Songwriter Guy : needs to throw away his word-a-day calendar.
    "We have all of these disparate facets that ultimately converge."


    Guy on the porch that collapsed: nice guy.

    Water company guy: I'm opposed to bottled water but at least his company does some good.

    Race Car Driver: Man, he is hot. And Emily might enjoy going to races again and talking about racing.

    Skateboard Guy: Emily needs a man, not a boy.

    Grandma Guy: nice callback to last season

    Guy with a boom box :Emily needs a man, not a boy.

    Guy with You Are Beautiful Note: The note was a very cute touch.

    Guy With Six Kids : A guy with one sweet 11 year old is one thing, a guy with a bunch of teenage boys is another.

    One of men is a close friend of my kids - he's been over to my house many a times.

    Chris from Chicago (really Bartlett IL) was the guy who gave her the bobble head dolls.

    Normally I would not watch this but this year I have to see how far he lasts.

    I think Bobble Head guy is going to last quite awhile. He seemed sweet and genuine.

    Weren't Water Company Guy and Skateboard Guy the same person? There's too many guys at the beginning, IMO.

    ETA: My money is on Arie. BTW, his dad is Arie Luyendyk.

    And football guy was the one with the you are beautiful note.

    Ok - confession time. I have never watched the bachelor/bachelorette before. So I may ask stupid questions.

    Question 1 - how many guy got the boot the first night? 5? How many get booted each week?

    6 guys got the boot last night. It will likely be 3 less guys each week until they get down to around 8, and then 2 each week until there are 2 left. There is sure to be some drama where a guy leaves or is sent home unexpectedly.

    I'm a gentleman that prefers brunettes, but I have to admit she's the best looking Bachelorette ever. Not to mention the southern charm and sweetness.

    Unless I missed it, I'm surprised no one said "Brad's lost in my gain".

    We still have it in the folder but I wanted to check in here and see how people are liking it so far. We'll probably get into it after the Finales are over for this season. We're saving it for the dark times. ;)

    I think the worst guy for Emily has to be Kalon. Therefore, he is the one she will fall for the hardest. It is clear from what he said to the guys that he is not up for being a step-father.

    I thought it was kind of funny that even though she sent Joe home, the fireworks still went off.

    The specter of little Ricky really changes the whole show. And I don't think that is a bad thing necessarily. It makes everything more serious. I think the guys are going to be less likely to try and "win" just for the sake of winning. They realize that if they propose they step into some serious responsibility. The producers will probably not let a Bentley or Wes situation happen to Emily. If any of the guys are obviously just playing the game or are found to have g/fs back home, I think the producers will step in quickly if Emily is falling for them. Plus she has her girlfriends and mom available to her everyday to talk to and keep her sane.

    It has to be someone that can and will move to NC or the whole thing is a waste of time.

    We did ok guessing who was going that night. We see Race driver and single dad going far. Helicopter guy will stay till 5-6 just for the producers to have something to work with each week. We were calling the bobble head guy "twilly 2.0" They made him seem a little goofy in his edit.

    As for the hottest bachelorette, the wife and I settled on DeAnna Pappas.

    Really? :eek:

    I loved DeAnna, but thought she was perhaps the least hot bachelorette ever, with the possible exception of Ashley. Ali was my favorite.

    These guys are the most boring bunch of Bachelors ever. And enough of how stunning she is. Get a reality check, a girl that beautiful has been told all her life how hot she is.

    My Son is over at Chris' house to watch tonight's show. I'll have to get some feedback from him when he comes home.

    Didn't realize I spelled loss that way, thanks for being so "classy".
