Douchebags toast each other in the limousines as the vehicles glide down the highway beside a setting sun, kind of like that point in the season of 24 where you know it's going to be dark for several episodes and things are going to get really bad.
Over at the Bachelorette pad, Jillian and Chris sit down. "In a million years, did you ever think you'd be back here as the Bachelorette?" asks Chris. Jillian says no way, but you know what? A million years is a really long time.
Jillian starts talking about how she's always been focused on her career and figured she'd eventually attract someone? But she had to let her guard down to show Jason something? I don't know. Chris says she has a famous quote: "You have to slay a few dragons to find the right prince." Yeah, Bartlett's has been calling on that one. He asks her to explain what that means. I'm going to assume anyone reading this isn't a moron and doesn't need it explained to them. Chris talks about how America fell in love with Jillian. Wait. I thought we fell in love with Melissa. Or was it Molly? Chris asks if she regrets anything, and Jillian asks if he means the hot tub thing, and she laughingly says that's what people in love do, isn't it? Yeah, but we're not talking about people in love; we're talking about you and Jason.
Chris asks if she's ready to accept a proposal. She says she is. The odds say it's not going to be something she has to worry about.
So she's going to meet the men. "This is the first day of the rest of my life," she says, adding that she's not nervous at all, but super, super pumped.
The first limo arrives, and we hear the men going all, "Do you see her?" "She's gorgeous!" and blah blah blah.
First one out is Kiptyn. "That's a great name," says Jillian. That's nice of her. She says she just got nervous. Kiptyn says the little he knows of her, he's impressed. Translation: he didn't watch last season.
Next up: Bryan, 28, a high school coach from Lawton, Okla., (he says "Dallas"). He says she looks gorgeous, and talks about high school football and how you're taught to knock people down, but he just wants to sweep her off her feet, and then he just picks her up, which I think constitutes assault anywhere but on this show.
