I caught the last 30 minutes. These are my impressions:
1.) Ali is about as milquetoast as I suspected. Even her clothes are boring. She got sick during filming? Who does that? You are on a nationally-televised reality show that people tune into weekly. Suck it up, dear. Take some Pepto or whatever you need and get back in the saddle. We are not tuning in to see you clad in your jammies, sitting on a couch with your blankie. We want drama. And intrigue. And scandal.
2.) Is it me, or do all of the guys look exactly the same? Did Ali tell producers, "I like brown, spiky-haired guys that look like they shop at Abercrombie and have a penchant for wearing collared shirts with sweaters and faded denim"? I was seriously having trouble telling all of them apart. Except the dude with the black-rimmed glasses, they looked like puppies from the same litter.
3.) Kasey...Kasey, Kasey, Kasey. Love the tattoo. Love the craziness in your eyes. Love the fact that you didn't even tell Ali that you got a tattoo (of a heart in a shield, no less!) because I think that you must have started taking your meds again, after your stint in the tattoo parlor and came to your senses. Where do the producers find these guys?
I will admit, I was fairly intrigued that they go to Iceland next week, which overlaps with the volcanic eruption. (Producers must have been high-fiving over that one). Yes, I probably will tune in next week (sigh, I'm hooked - I'll admit it) but it's only for two reasons: 1.) I heard Ali gains 15 pounds this season, and I'm curious to see how that happens and 2.) the next Bachelor will probably come out of this pool of wanna-be suitors, and I'd like to get to know him now, as opposed to when he starts filming.
Oh, and I need to give my husband a major shout-out -- after working until 8pm last night, he managed to not only go to Target to get a little pool for the Bear (wading time!), but also purchase a lawn mower for me. The poor guy didn't get home until well past 9:30, and both Scotty and I are excited to try out our new toys today.
