Previously: Daniel did an excellent weecap about all of the weepy bitches who played tennis, had some tea, and got sent packing. Now you are stuck with me for the night. It's my very first attempt at weecaping. And to make matters worse, I'm not really a Bachelor watcher. Everything I know about the show I've learned from weecaps. Bear with me, and rest assured that Daniel will be back next week.
Okay, this Matt guy is kinda cute, maybe it is just the accent. I'm just so grateful that this show has been going on for weeks already and there are only six women left so that I don't have keep track of 26 women. Tonight, the announcer promises that Matt takes the girls to Sun Valley where they frolic merrily in the snow and try not to throw icy snowballs at the competition. Voiceover man also assures us that we'll see the "most shocking confrontation in Bachelor history." As I mentioned, I'm not a Bachelor expert so I can't attest to the truth of this statement, but given what I know from all the other reality TV shows I've seen, I'm thinking that I'm inevitably going to be let down.
Chris says this is a big week because the four girls that make it through get to take Matt home to meet their parents. That means two girls are kicked off tonight. Wow, they really fly through this show with the multiple eliminations don't they? Big Brother could stand to take a lesson. Chris also informs the gals that there are no "date roses" up for grabs, that there will be two one-on-one dates and one group date, and of course there is a twist.
Chris doesn't have a date box with him this week. (What the hell is a date box? Is it some kind of raffle?) Chris tells the girls that they are going to Sun Valley, Idaho. Shrill screaming ensues, making me regret my decision to fill-in already. Chris looks relieved to have the girls out of the house for a week.
In a talking head, the overly confident Shayne says she's really excited about the trip because she's excellent at skiing and that she's looking forward to showing Matt her ski skills. I'm sure she's got some off-the-slopes skills she'd like to show off as well. Then there's Noelle who's super excited and sweetly wishes she had Matt to herself. She doesn't really seem like your typical dating show contestant, though admittedly I mostly watch the Rock of Love and Flavor of Love ilk of love matching, so I'm used to the girls being a little (or actually a lot) skankier. Noelle is actually wearing clothes and not flaunting her giant breasts. I'm so confused. Is this show about personality? No wonder it is off my radar.
