You know how many recappers make jokes about poking out their own eyes or throwing things at the television and shrieking and stuff? Suddenly, Aaron starts explaining the whole concept behind the show in narration again, and I did actually scream in frustration. For real. This is awful. This only happens for a couple of seconds, thank God. Then Aaron says that he's not afraid about his decision. His mind is made up. He heads out to the pool and says the same damned thing about no regrets and not looking back that he's said before. I think they reran the same clip.
Out by the pool, somebody has killed a whole lot of pink roses and spread their petals all over the place to make a pathway to some little stone altar. The final rose is sitting on the altar. Aaron stands next to it and waits.
Commercials. There's a brief preview of Trista as The Bachelorette, beginning in January. The flashes of the men reveal far too many teeth and really, really fake smiles.
AAAAARRRRRGGHHHHH!!!!!! Aaron narrates again that he's gone from twenty-five ladies down to two. We fucking know! Shutupshutupshutup! For the love of God, zip it! I'm going to hear this in my dreams for years! He says he hopes he makes the right choice and has no regrets and blah blah blah blah blah.
A limo arrives at the house. Chris comes out to greet the passenger, Brooke. She takes his arm and he starts leading her in. In an interview, Brooke tells us she loves Aaron because he's so great and wonderful. She says "it's almost scary" how great Aaron is. I agree that there's something scary about Aaron. Chris escorts Brooke over to the path of flower petals and sends her off to join Aaron to get her little blonde heart crushed. Hope I didn't spoil you, there. She tells us that they keep "building" on their relationship every time they see each other. She says she would hate for him to throw it all away now. Hee. They didn't have enough flower petals to go all the way to the door or anything, so Brooke has to trudge down through the grass for about fifty feet to get to the primrose path.
Brooke joins Aaron at the by the altar. He tells her she looks gorgeous. He tells her that the past six weeks were wonderful. It was a blessing that he got to know her. Her family's wonderful. But it's ovah! It's ovah, li'l Brooke! He says that he doesn't think they're at the same point in their lives. She smiles and nods. He says he wasn't expecting to have such strong feelings about her. He says it breaks his heart to do this to her, but that he's sending her back home to her family and golf class. Brooke keeps her smile planted on her face and says that it's okay. She says that Helene's an amazing girl who will treat Aaron well.
