    No question the first episode is fun to watch because of the nerves and the alcohol flying. But Carrie Bradshaw was the best. Love how the "expert" fumbles at introductions and makes a complete fool of herself at the party. And why do you care that the "lesbian" is not into Ben? Isn't that better for you?!!

    I gotta say the coolest move was the woman who just walked past Ben and into the mansion. Guess it wasn't cool enough though.

    Oh yeah the grandma twist. Cool move too. And who thought that was serious?

    BTW, the women going on about how gorgeous he is…really? He's average at best.

    They all have the most beautiful, bleached white teeth!

    Who thinks Ben actually saw a hummingbird when he was leaving to go meet Chris the first night?


    I thought it was so sweet that Brittany brought her grandma!

    Good move when the one woman stepped out of the limo and walked right inside without speaking to Ben. But I don't remember her name or even whether we ever saw her talking to Ben.

    How many times during the arrivals do they have to stop the cameras to re-wet the stones outside the mansion?

    I cringed when Jenna misquoted Ben. The whole exchange was so awkward! She's a lot crazy! Her profession was listed as blogger. If anyone knows where to find her blog, please let the rest of us know.

    Yeah... she's cute but crazy. I don't see her lasting long on the show. At the same time, her lesbian protagonist, Monica bugs me. I hope she doesn't get too far.

    Looks like this is going to be a crazy season. I wonder what's up with someone passing out later on.

    Please don't post spoilers about future episodes. Previews (which I actively avoid) are considered spoilers.

    Kacie B. is your winner.

    Nikki is your next Bachelorette.

    Jenna is your next train-wreck-on-Bachelor-Pad.

    Ummm no, he is not average at all. If I got out of the limo and that was the guy standing there, I'd get right back in. :thumbsdown:

    Typical first episode. A couple of whackos, a few opportunists, and a bunch of nutjobs.

    The lesbian porn on the couch was a new twist though.

    If it weren't for all the barely covered boobies on this show, I'd lose interest in about 10 microseconds.

    My wife didn't exactly put it that way but yeah, she wouldn't bother either.

    Maybe they're just caught up in the moment or the booze makes him look good.

    I doubt that commenting on how average he is would be considered one of the best ways to stay on the show.

    Sorry about that. I didn't realize that people avoid those previews that are aired as part of the ep.

    I'm glad Jenna the blogger is gone. She was so painful to watch that I found myself wondering if she has a mental disorder.

    The grandma is one of the TiVo forum members aunt. There is a thread about it.

    How did I miss Blakeley on the first episode?! Holy mackaeral!! No way a girl that looks like would be interested in Ben. But put her on TV and she on fire for him...whatever!!

    Weird, I thought she was one of the only vaguely interesting women.. except for all the crying.

    Last night's rose ceremony was a doozy! From Erika hyperventilating, to Courtney almost rejecting Ben, to Shawntel almost getting a rose.

    Thought it was pretty smart of Ben to not give out the last one. And if nothing works out with the one he chooses he'll always have Shawntel.
