Ah…. my guilty pleasure of the Bachelorette is back on, perfectly timed for those long summer nights. (You know what you are doing ABC. Well played.) Last night the first episode of season seven (yes, season seven) rolled out with the lucky bachelorette Ashley Herbert (Rejected from last season’s Bachelor. See talent is just being recycled. Way to go ABC!). This season Ashley plans on approaching with “no regrets”, which she mentioned way to many times to count.
With a new hair color, proving the brunettes have a air of mystery… the show began in typical fashion: girl stands in a ridiculously gorgeous dress, limo pulls up and 25 bachelors try to gain attention of the eligible lady.
Here are my personal highlights:
Ben F: Who is a winemaker in Sonoma,CA. He stepped out of the limo with a bottle of white and two wine glasses. Yes please. We find out later that this is his own label.
Matt: In his one on one time with Ashley, this bachelor thought it would be a good idea to mention that he is a mama’s boy. Which isn’t that big of a deal, but then he proceeds to call his mother. That is a first in the series. His mother gives her two pieces of advice: 1. Your mothers are watching 2. Use protection. (He turned beet red. I couldn’t imagine her as a mother-in-law.)
Jeff: Arrived wearing a mask, claiming he wants Ashley to get to know him rather than his external looks. This reminds me of one of two things: A dare from some buddies one night in a bar or a professor of sociology doing a social experiment. Surprise surprise, he was the first to receive a rose.
Tim: The liquor distributor from Long Island was so drunk, he actually passed out. Ashley gave him a few chances…but epic fail. He arrived in a stretch limo but left in a mini van. Oh how far you have fallen….
Of course there are nice guys that I actually enjoy, but it is more fun to judge the weirdos who have more baggage than a luggage carousel at the airport.
Here are my bachelors to watch:
If one of these three don’t win it all, I am fairly confident that one of them may be the next bachelor. (Remember, ABC recycles talent…)
