My Thoughts on Emily's Season of the Bachelorette

The Bachelorette is my guilty pleasure.  I hate to admit it, but I live for Monday nights.

To me, Emily is perfection.  The girl is gorgeous.  On top of that, she seems sweet, classy and genuine.  I guess my expectations are low following past-season twits like Ashley and Ben.  A part of me almost thinks she's too good for this dirtbag show.  Almost.  Emily, if anything, please don't fall for the villian and make the world hate you.  Please, for Ricki!

The beautiful Emily.  I hope those boobs aren't fake, but they probably are.

Surprisingly enough, my boyfriend, C, is just as into The Bachelorette as I am.  I'm pretty sure that means he's the manliest man ever.  At the start of every season we choose our top 3.  The person that guesses the winner (or closest to) owes the other dinner at the end of the season.  I'm the reigning champion, two seasons in a row... but who's counting, right? 

The formula is simple.  The best looking people usually win.  Just like real life!

So, with that, here are my picks:

Charlie.  He's beefy - I like that.  Also, something about a traumatic brain injury.

Ryan, a.k.a. Jaws.  Ex-pro football player and I think she digs his Southern accent (I sure do).

Arie. A racecar driver. Enough said! 

C's picks (we both love Arie so much, we're sharing him!):

Doug.  Single father of the year?
Sean.  Didn't really say much, but C "had a feeling". Ha.

Honorable mention goes to Jef with one F.  He's the alt hipster-type but came off as a pretty down to earth cool dude.  And there was a ton of footage of him making out with Emily in the promo reel which leads me to believe that she keeps him around for a while.  The dark horse - I love it.

Skateboarding, charity-loving, Ray-Ban wearing CEO.

If you are a true rose lover like me, you're gonna want to read this recap.  It's the cheekiest, most entertaining thing you'll read all week.  Perfect for procrastinating at the office.

I'm planning to do a weekly post on my Bachelorette thoughts.  And I'm trying my hardest to avoid all the spoilers that are out there.  I want to be surprised!  Hopefully I can still stand Emily by the end of this thing.

Who are your picks? 

What do you think of Emily?


  1. I love Emily! Not so much her un-athleticism, but otherwise :)

    My votes are with Arie & Ryan!!!!
