So the bachelor is holding this press conference to talk about an economic stimulus package, only it looks like he's gotten a whole lot of sun since the last episode, because he's majorly tanned, NO WAIT, that's Barack Obama. I was wondering why he didn't say anything about looking for a connection.
Anyway, we're back in Seattle at the houseboat that Jason and Ty are staying in, and we watch Jason packing because he's leaving poor Ty alone again, but it's worth it because he's going to four different hometowns to meet the families of the women he's auditioning to be his wife. He asks Ty how many shirts he should pack, and Ty glumly says, "twenty-one," which I hopes isn't one shirt for each day Daddy's away.
Jason says his relationship with Jill started off as a lot of fun, and she's got a sense of humour and is passionate about her career and is smart (her appearance on this show notwithstanding, I suppose). "There's some type of energy with Jill that isn't with anybody else," he says, as we watch them be all wacky with each other. Jumping on a bed. Playing chicken in the pool. Rolling hobos for spare change. He says life with Jillian would always be exciting, on the edge of his seat. Yeah, you have to be careful about getting onto that restaurant design carousel. Can you handle that, Jason? Despite having five minutes of "previously on The Bachelor" scenes, we now have to endure a Jillian montage of seemingly all the times he ever talked to her. "I'm not worried that she's too strong, but I'm looking for someone that's going to rely on me," says Jason.
And now we revisit Molly, who gave him butterflies when he first saw her, because she has the "most beautiful eyes" he's ever seen, only I think he meant "eye makeup." "When she wants something, she goes after it. And that's really flattering," he says. Also, on their first date, she jumped at the chance to spend the night with him, and "that's really cool." Well, who wouldn't think that was cool? "Molly's the type of girl I can see myself spending the rest of my life with," he says, but isn't that true of each of the four -- rather different, personality-wise -- remaining women? The only problem with Molly is that he "can't get deep enough" with Molly. Cough.
Naomi? "Naomi's amazing. She is gorgeous and beautiful and fun." She loves to travel. She has a passion for life, for giving back. For sulking? You don't mention the sulking? She has a passion for that, too. "I think Naomi's best quality is that her eyes are wide open to life," he says. He's just concerned that she might not be ready for his life of child-rearing and watching television. "I don't want to be the one to clip Naomi's wings."
