It’s been a long time since we’ve written about our favorite guilty pleasure, and we’d say this season of The Bachelorette is okay. There’s too much stuff about kids, too much stuff about Charlotte, and too much swapping of hot tub scenes for playground scenes (although we were pretty entertained by Emily’s one sassy friend in the “friend interview” scene. Kinda made us think Emily was cooler). So far, we like some Arie and think Chris is a little immature (yikes! sorry to bring up the age thing) but quite a looker. And we like John the new darkhorse! However, it’s not the winners that keep it interesting. It’s the oddballs.
The rose for our favorite show quote goes to:
“You know who we haven’t talked about is Alejandro.” – Chris Harrison to Emily
And the rose for our favorite commentary quote:
“Everyone I know needs to watch Ryan on the Bachelorette before deciding to go to UGA.” - ekcolley, on Ryan from Augusta
We’d love to hear some of yours!

We’ve all got them. Our favorite of all time continues to be, “I hate my horse” (pulled from the original twitter feed. If anyone knows who said this, please introduce us.) Although, ”We don’t have a BOB at our beach house” was recently overheard and not too bad.
We at elaney have a huge whitegirlproblem, and it is that this season of The Bachelorette is horrible. HOW? How is it possible? We’ve watched this show since we didn’t understand it with Aaron Burge, since Bob Guiney was kind of gross and weird, since Trista Sutter had a wedding ceremony with pink sand, since Jake told Vienna “As a matter of fact, I flew last weekend.” We teetered with excitement when Michelle Money woke up with the random black eye. Brad and Emily even made us believe in love again (for the night. It actually made us briefly create a match.com profile). We can handle sappy. We can handle overuse of words like “here for the right reasons.” We can handle the absurd. But one thing we cannot handle is boring. And Ashley Hebert is boring, boring, boring.
Really, we feel bad for her. It doesn’t really seem like any of the guys are that into her, and plus she wore a midriff on a date last week. But we can’t put our finger on it. Let’s hear it ladies…why is this season so bad??

And she took our advice in the After the Rose ceremony and toned down that cake mix colored hair (don’t worry Emily – we suffered from the same faux pas in college. See fbook photos circa 1-10). Kind of embarrassed to admit this, but I cried when she won. OH! And HOW could we forget from Brad Womack Round 1 that he has a twin brother named Chad?? It says so little but it says so much. And no, maybe they won’t make it. But maybe they will!! What did you think, ladies??
In other news, Ashley H (who we all affectionately know as “Ash” in a deep Southern accent) is the next Bachelorette (tattoo count: 1). At least she’s not dumb, but wow there will be a lot of squealing. Lots of pink bubble gum and cotton candy. Here’s to hoping she tones it down a bit. More fun facts about Ash!

1. emum might be wrong about tattoos
2. It’s better to be on the aggressive side than the shy side.
3. Smart gets you no where.
4. When in doubt, make out.
5. Say things like, “I’m so afraid, will you protect me?” whenever you have the chance. Can be a light rain – level of danger not relevant.
6. If things get tense, start crying.
7. Coming across like a total nutjob is not a huge deal; if anything, it can be seen as attractive.
8. It’s okay to say “I love you” after two dates when your boyfriend is dating other women.
9. You probably should be threatened by the trashy single mom hitting on your boyfriend.
10. Don’t try to play hard to get unless you tell him that you are playing hard to get so that he’s not confused.
Readers – love to hear your lessons as well!

To take bets on the Bachelorette. It’s down to two, and Frank is a tool. Below are the same photos Ali uses each week to decide who her one true love is and who to place photo side down. For whatever reason, Bachlorette / Bachelor cast photos always look somewhat different than the cast does on TV. However. The dogtags remain the same. Here is Roberto, and here is Chris. We ask you, dear readers, who will win?

Look, not trying to say that the writer of this blog is always the smartest girl in the room, but we can call a spade a spade. And look who’s breaking up…
The story also mentions that Jake is currently in ATLANTA taping a segment of Drop Dead Diva. Huh.
Feel free to weigh in on last night if you feel so inclined. Decided to change my vote to cute runner Kirk.

Bachelor Pad has been cast!! Who are you most excited about?! For us, it has to be the Weatherman. The forecast analogies crack us up! Looks like the sun is shining on the Weatherman afterall! However, there are crazies to boot. The girl that liked bears on Jason’s season, and crazy Michelle from Jake’s! PS. How hilarious is it that they are all in bathing suits in their cast photos. This is going to be amazing.
