Now we get this incredibly convoluted selection process in which the remaining men are instructed to line up in single file behind the women of their choosing, while Santagati tells the bachelorettes in all seriousness that they cannot look at the men behind them. Uh, why not? Seriously, what would happen, Santagati? Would a woman who looked back be disqualified? Would she turn into a pillar of salt?
Anyway, the men line up. In an interview, Rebekah says that she didn't hear anyone lining up behind her and was worried she was going to be "dissed." Only imagine her saying it in a screechy annoying voice.
Then the ridiculous we're-making-this-up-as-we-go-along nonsense continues, as, instead of just having each woman turn around and pick a guy, Santagati makes her come stand by him, then he calls the men over and makes them line up again, which had me yelling "BLOODY WELL GET ON WITH IT" at the television. The men who chose Karen are Dorky Earmuffs, Patrick, and Mike. Karen says she was pleased with the men who picked her, since Patrick's a lot of fun and she's glad Dorky Earmuffs wasn't mad at her over how terrible their first date was. Then she chooses Mike, who in an interview says "Blah blah beautiful blah blah initial attraction." We never hear from Karen why she picked Mike, if Patrick's such an ass-load of fun.
Cecile's next; she was selected by apparent masochists Jim, Jack, and Michael. Shot of Old Tim, who is NOT in her line. In an interview, Cecile says she was "disappointed and disheartened" that Old Tim didn't pick her. She says she would have selected him. I can't even speak. Cecile says, "I thought there were some things I had left unsaid." You know, Cecile is just as psycho as New Tim. She just gets away with it because she's cute. Why would she at all expect Old Tim to select her? What is wrong with her? She picks Michael, who says it was "great" and made him forget how cold his toes were. Yeah, abject fear will do that to you. Again, no explanation from Cecile why she chose Michael. In an interview, Old Tim says he lined up behind Rebekah because no one else had at that point. Also, "Cecile had already decided to bring me back, and I'm not sure what that was all about. I wanted to leave and get away from her at that point in time."
