Next up is Sissie, age thirty-one; she's an interior designer who says she's fed up with dating because it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. Apparently, she's been through that haystack, though, as she informs us, "I think I've dated every man on this side of the Mississippi," which she follows up with the nervous giggle masking deep desperation, which we'll come to hear a lot from the bachelorettes. Then she blah blahs that she figures Alaskan men will be a lot like "how [she] grew up," whatever that means, and proceeds to offer a bunch of barely connected statements involving "fishing," "the South," and "country girl." Meanwhile, I can't say I know a lot about hair, given that mine is buzzed to within a quarter-inch of its life, but if I can tell you've got a bad perm, then you've got a bad perm. And Sissie, that's a bad perm. She says she'll definitely find a guy in Alaska: "I'd be keen to settle down and get married." Shot of her in the plane again; she is wearing one of the radio headsets for some reason, like she's flying the plane or something. Mountain sheep or whatever frolic in the snow below.
Cecile's up next, and she too is wearing a headset in her plane. She's twenty-six, a sales analyst, and says she's on the show for the chance to meet her soulmate. I try not to snicker at that as I watch her in some hip-hop dance class. I think Cecile's cute. She's got long brown hair with blonde streaks, and apparently after she's done busting a move, she likes to tool around Benicia, CA in a silver BMW. She calls the show's premise "incredibly romantic." I'd like to look up the word "romantic" in whatever dictionary Cecile's using. Shot of her plane, which is actually the same plane they tried to pretend Rebekah was in earlier.
Karen, age thirty-six, is a business development manager who looks like a less bimbo-ish Three's Company-era Suzanne Somers, actually. She talks about a marriage that ended kind of suddenly, but doesn't say why. We watch her walk along a beach in Hampton, NH and I think this was supposed to look reflective, but looked more like one of those "Are you in debt? Harassed by creditors?" ads. Back to the headset-wearing Karen as her voice-over continues, explaining that she'd love to share her life with somebody because she has a lot to share. She's got plenty of trite observations on love to share, anyway.
