last night b and i were randomly flipping through channels. everyone knows there is nothing good on tv in the summer. and we refuse to submit to dancing with the stars. we can go low, but not that low.
so channel flipping continues when all of a sudden a familiar face flashes past us on the screen. "whoa! wait!", we both yell in unison. "WHAT is chris harrison doing on tv?" turns out, chris harrison is hosting the bachelorette. last night was episode one. we had NO idea. but, as fate would have it, we flipped to the channel right as episode one was starting. and 99% of the time we never channel surf. so it's like fate. i can't escape it.
a few quick thoughts before i really dive in next week, because everyone knows that episode one is all shots of bach/ette walking on the beach looking contemplative, and hours of dudes/ladies exiting limos.
-ashely looked pretty. love her hair dark. her dress was gorgeous. her laugh is adorable. however, my very astute friend liz made the comment that she is an over giggler. which is so true. guys love this though. it makes them feel hilarious. and she seems nice. hrmph. whatever. no i do not enjoy having nice things to say...but it is what it is. give me time.
-the first guy out of the limo was probably my favorite-ish. however, it's impossible to tell at this point.
-but of course bentley will be my favorite-favorite since he is from the good old slc, quit his job at goldman sachs to be on the show and promote his new business, his ex-wife is friends with our most all time favorite michelle, who tipped off ashley that he is here "for the wrong reasons". yay! i also enjoy that he is wearing plaid in his bio photo. and then i looked up and saw that first limo dude is also wearing plaid. so maybe this is a theme? i'm too lazy to go back and look at all the other bio photos. so let's just pretend it's a theme.
-and did they really have to kick off sleepy, drunk, mute guy?
-lastly, and semi-unrelated, brad and emily are "officialy" done. for some reason, that particular season really threw me for a loop. i think of myself as reality tv savvy. i don't buy all the ridiculousness that they peddle to me. i know it's all an act, nearly 100% scripted and edited to the point that reality and truth are the farthest thing from what we are watching. but still, they totally had me with brad and emily. i am still so blown away at the amazing edit job that the producers pulled off to make us all believe that 1-emily was some perfect creature, 2-that they were 100% madly in love and would NEVER break up and 3-umm...i can't think of a 3 but decided to list the 3 anyway. b read online that brad's family said emily was a total fake, weirdo...NOTHING like what she seemed on tv. and i believe it.
so there you have it. season 1,783 of the bach/ette is in full swing. here we go again. weeee.
