Separating the Men from the Boys

By // TV

Tonight’s episode of The Bachelorette (the trash TV that is tiding me over until my beloved Big Brotherreturns to CBS) featured some intense drama, some serious tears and much talk of “real men” and “cowardly boys”.
With the surprising departure of Mike (who I was convinced was a front-runner), the continuing charade of Wes the Oscar winning woe-er, the multiple tattle-tale sessions, the controversially cancelled cocktail party and the dramatic rose ceremony, the remaining bachelors moved up and down considerably in my estimation.

In an appropriate move amidst uncertainty that all the men are single, Jillian said goodbye to slightly smarmy (though, I still maintain, well-intentioned) Juan and the horrifyingly aggressive David. This left Wes as the only villainous man in the running. Though Tanner P isn’t my cup of tea, he’s not an actually bad guy, so the field’s been narrowed to the decent and the lovely (with a few glitches left in there for dramatic effect).

As of tonight, my favourites are as follows:
-Michael (I can’t wait for this earnest and energetic sweetheart to finally get a one-on-one with his self-proclaimed “crush”)

-Jake (I’m sticking by my first favourite, even if he does think he’s a little too perfect)

– Kiptyn (If this week’s low-key date proved anything, it’s that the Jillian/Kiptyn chemistry is close to flawless)

Ed, Jesse, Mark, Reid and Robby still need to distinguish themselves a bit more but I started to see potential in Mark and Reid for the first time this week.

    Kipytn is totally my new favorite I think. He is both adorable and extremely nice to her….sigh. I love bad tv.

  2. Kelly says:

    also, really hot.

    I also cannot believe she sent Mike home over Mark, I also thought he was going to go far. Still love Jake, but he needs to step it up next week (or, she needs to take some time to sit with him next week, which she hasn't done much of since the one on one). Kiptyn is growing on me, but I also like Ed and Robby. Very glad David is finally gone. Next week looks intense…does she finally see through Wes guitar playing?

    I dont know, guitar playing aside and true intentions aside, Wes is just icky. I don't understand her taste, Jake is clearly wrong when he says she's looking for a nice guy.

    I still love Jake too. Though no one should ever call themselves “too perfect”, even if other people have.

    Im not so sure about Robby. He's sweet but he doesn't seem to really have it together like the others do. Ed is really cute but like Reid and Mark I don't really connect with him yet. Im not sure I like Jesse too much, though he's not bad.

    Im firmly a Michael fan after this week.
