Bachelorette - Desiree Hartsock - all eps

Anyone watching? I watched a bit of the beginning. I personally don't care to watch much beyond the scenery and any particularly dramatic moments.

Feel free to keep me up to date on any moments you think are worth watching like stuff in the previews
Spoiler:
(e.g. fist fight, guy's girlfriend showing up)

Enjoyed it here. Was glad to see her kick out that guy before the rose ceremony. What a tool. But was disappointed the guy with no shirt got a rose. Before the ceremony no less!!

The previews look good, but...

Spoiler:
...that fight looked more like guys horsing around.

Is there always a Fantasy Suite at the guys' mansion? I recall that the Fantasy Suite was close to the location of the Fantasy Date. I guess I'm cynical, but it seemed like the whole segment with Jonathan getting drunk/thrown out was staged. Also, does Desiree seem skinnier than when she was on The Bachelor?

Which ones? On screen? From a specific user(s)? Are there particular keywords or hash tags you're searching on?

I just noticed

Yeah they've started showing random tweets onscreen throughout the show. Some of them are funny.

There's no fantasy suite at the mansion. The guy wanted her to fast forward with him to the fantasy suite, which usually happens during the "final 3" (with the same text on the card, too).

I didn't care for the tweets. They reminded me of the obtrusive 'ads' for other programs that pop up from time to time on nearly every show now.

No surprise who was eliminated. But there was one who's statement boggles. Something like he won't find anyone else. As if she's the last woman on earth!

The villain this year is the one who had his "son" come out of the limo. Saw what I did there?

And next week's looks great.

Spoiler:
Apparently the show finds the girlfriend of one the bachelors. And actually bring her on the show to confront him. That is so awesome!

Yes, I caught the previews for next week and couldn't believe that all of that takes place in one week-a jam-packed, drama-filled ep for sure!

Previews on this show are historically VERY misleading. It'll be interesting to see what this turns out to be.

My FAVORITE tweeter for this show is Jennifer Weiner. She is HILARIOUS.

I love all her books, too. If you want fun tweets throughout the episode, you should follow her - they only post one or two per episode but she is a goldmine of funny...

It's hard enough to remember who is who, now there's Bryden, Brooks, Brad, and Ben? I'll stick to rooting for Juan Pablo, thanks I'm probably alone in my viewpoint, but that whole "Brian has a girlfriend" situation seemed staged to me. Especially with Chris Harrison providing his input every few minutes. It also seems like the shows are becoming more and more formulaic: Add 1 villain who nobody in the house likes (except the Bachelor/Bachelorette), sprinkle in an accident that requires calling the paramedics, add a dash of a confrontation with an ex.... And was Brandon for real? "She's making a big mistake" - Ummmm, no she's not. I think they need to ramp up the psychological screening

I called BS on that whole girlfriend thing. They're not engaged, much less married. The GF even admitted they were already in the outs. What's guy supposed to do? Needless to say my wife did not agree.

And I knew the guy who professed his love was out. But it nice of her to comfort him afterwards. Jeff Probst (as my wife called him) was also obvious to get eliminated.

Sort of a blah episode for me. The GF was pretty annoying --- she talked a mile a minute and barely stopped to breathe.

And I really disliked Des' dress at the rose ceremony. The blue sequins at the top of her dress looked like a dog collar or a bib.

Wow, that Brandon was SUPER needy. He would have scared me off, too. He needs some therapy more than a girlfriend.

No one really jumping out for me yet - something about Brooks really annoys me. The guy I think is the most attractive is Michael (the Miami Prosecutor). I like Bryden, but someone needs to get him a decent haircut. I know he is in the military and needs a short cut, but yowzer, that is one BAD haircut!

I really liked Brooks at first but he keeps getting...I don't know....wussier? Girlier? He is still my favorite, though. I think there are some really unattractive dudes on that show.

Well, this may be the case. But as Chris alluded to in the MOST DRAMATIC CONFRONTATION EVER, the casting process HAD to have started well before they were on the outs. So clearly he was making plans to chase Des before he and his GF "concluded" their relationship. And it appeared, at least to me, that Chris also alluded to you "have to be single/not attached/etc" to be included in the casting process. So he lied to the producers.

Of course, the producers may have known he was lying and kept it in their pocket.....

If you mean Brydon, he is not a vet - he is active military (army).

Bryden's description on the show is "Iraq War Veteran".

Ah.

I didn't think you were called a veteran until you left the service.

Right. Veteran of the war, still on active duty. Actually I forgot about that, that might work against him. Depends if Des cares.

Pretty boring episode last night. It was nice what they did for the older couple, though.

Wow. No love for this season? If I was Desiree, I would have sent both of the guys from the 2-on-1 date home. Michael comes off as a bit of a d-bag.

So Juan Pablo got the boot. I guess now I'll root for Brooks. Looks like there's lots of unscripted drama ahead

So Michael is still in it - although I suspect he will be the next to go.

Of the remaining guys, I like Zak. And then Chris. Still not feeling Brooks AT ALL - something about him just bothers me. The other guy is just ok - I can't even remember his name.

There really isn't anyone this season to get excited about. I LOVED Ari last season - no one like that this time around.

I was shocked when Michael got picked over Juan Pablo. I have the same feelings for Zak that you have for Brooks Chris is OK, but there's definitely no standouts this season (the other guy is Kasey, btw). These guys need to get over themselves. Can they all honestly say that they have never thought about being the next Bachelor?

No, Kasey got bumped (he was the one with the strange voice). His friend - the other guy who heard the conversation between James and Mikey. He is still there. What is his name? Clearly not that memorable!
