The Bachelorette : Emily Maynard

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 doosh. 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?

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.

Ugh... I can't believe that I didn't find out until now (by chance) that Chris Harrison is in the process of filing for divorce. I'm a bit embarrassed for not reading the first post. Then again, I'm not really watching the show.

The slideshow at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1510122.html is kinda funny.

Chris did well tonight! But I think Ari is going to be some tough competition.

And it looks like Ryan is losing ground...

Yea, Ryan screwed up big time with that fat remark. I think Kalon put himself in real danger when he told her to let him finish. But he is very good-looking so a lot will be forgiven.

Arie is there till the end.

Emily turned me off a couple of times tonight. She's used to men hanging on her every word that God forbid someone tells her "let me finish". Secondly, a compromise is not so out of line for a man who does not have kids. Doesn't he need to get to know her first...an honor to be her dad...pleeeze!!!

Speaking of Dolly Parton, what was up with her booty?

If Emily let him finish, she would have never had a chance to say anything! Also, I think it more about how he said "let me finish", instead of what he actually said. It seemed a bit snappy to me. But he adds drama, so he'll stick around for a couple more weeks. As for Alessandro, where is the compromise? You either want to have a family, or you don't. I thought it was just a poor word choice, but he made it clear that he knew what he was saying. His gypsy lifestyle clearly wouldn't work for a family, so I'm not sure why he came on the show in the first place.

My son went out with Chris and a few friends last week and girls were coming up to him constantly and asking him if he was Chris from The Bachelorette.

I have some inside stuff that I'll wait to share when it's appropriate. One thing that was surprising was that Kalon was a really nice guy and one of the more popular guys in the house, not at all like the're portraying him to be.

More later.

Some weird fashion choices by the men tonight, namely, kneesocks and headbands. Where do you buy men's kneesocks?

And lots of men crying. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Ryan is only on the show because he thinks America wants to see him as The Bachelor. HA! I wish Emily had verbally smacked him after the trophy wife comment. "I'm involved with the media back home" - what does this mean? He knows a local DJ?

Emily and whatshisname both think Doug is hiding something. I wonder. I would love to hear all of the guys answer to Emily's question "what would your ex-g/f say her complaints about you are?" Made me start wondering what my exes would say about me!

How embarrassed is that guy now that he mispronounced quinoa on national television?

Hey, don't get so carried away there, skippy. Just posting in this thread indicates that we are all in the same class challenged group.

Any word on whether Ryan is as big an a-hole as he appears?
