Now they decide to make fun of Alex, which I enjoy, even though the show is essentially admitting that it was full of shit as much as a week ago. But, see, now they've got a good bachelor! Chris asks Aaron what he thought of Alex. Aaron didn't like Alex very much. He disagreed with the women Alex picked and how he acted on the dates. Aaron thought that Alex led a lot of the women on by misleading them into thinking that he favored them over the other competitors. We'll be sure to check Aaron's ass for any bite marks delivered by this statement in a later episode. Aaron insists that he's going to be honest with all the women. Aaron also derides Alex for not actually proposing, saying he would have liked to have seen him "pull the trigger." Wow. What a lovely turn of phrase there. This show. All about the romance. Chris asks Aaron whetherhe intends to propose if he meets a match. Aaron says, "It's possible." Yeah, whatever. I've read a couple of comments that Aaron looks like Ben Affleck on steroids. He definitely bears a resemblance during this interview. I don't know why they didn't just get Ben Affleck. Push, Nevada certainly needs the publicity. As does Ben. ["And ABC in general. Though for the record, I think Aaron looks more like Craig Bierko." -- Wing Chun] Chris says that they really hope Aaron finds that woman in this group, because going 0 for 2 will totally kill the show. Is Aaron ready to meet the ladies? Yes, yes he is. But first, a commercial break.
Hey, queasy fast-forwarded through the commercials for me. Thanks, queasy. We return to see all the bachelorettes arriving individually in their own limos. I have a hard time believing that this show rented twenty-five limos, leaving me to imagine all the women standing around together at the front gate while three cars shuttle them in one by one. First up is a blonde named Gwen, thirty-one, an executive recruiter. She's sick of dating, so of course she went on a show about it. And if the posts on my boards are accurate, this isn't even her first dating show. Next is Erin, twenty-four, an interior designer, and also blonde. She's ready to get married. She even told her friends. Most of the time, we don't even hear what Aaron said to these ladies: they come up, shake his hand, and we get a brief pre-filmed interview. Probably the same one as last week. Next is Frances, thirty, a strategic planning analyst, who isn't sure why she hasn't found the right guy yet. I'm sure I could hazard several guesses, starting with her fake job title. Frances is Asian-American. I feel weird pointing out ethnicities, but it's the best way for me to emphasize the dominant blondness of the bachelorettes. She says she's "looking for love." That's a different show, Frances.
