ASHLEY SPIVEY’S BACHELORETTE BLOG: EPISODE 6

We have a lot of pictures to recap this week – so I’m not even gonna waste y’all’s time by talking! Let’s just get started!

So this week, Emily and the gang were in Croatia and Emily decided that this was the week that she needed to become more sure about people that she was unsure about.

 

 

Travis got the 1-on-1 date and I think it was pretty obvious that they weren’t going to have a lot of chemistry.  I mean, how can you love someone after they destroy the most perfect ostrich egg child ever???

 

 

It was over for me as soon as I saw him eat an ice cream cone!  Things guy should not do: eat ice cream cones, eat popsicles, drink out of straws, or…

 

 

dance like this!

 

 

Back at the house, Ryan wears the worst white tank top/sports bra hybrid that I have ever seen!

 

 

At the end of Emily and Travis’ date, I start noticing that she is looking down a lot and I realize that this is her tell!  Before she eliminates someone, it is hard for her to look at them!

 

 

So she basically tells him that there isn’t any romantic chemistry between them.

 

 

He acts like he’s surprised even though I’m pretty sure he could tell as well!

 

 

Ick – these two were the worst! (Matt and Shayne)

 

 

So they hug…

 

 

…and Travis throws his umbrella down so he can walk in the rain! WTF?

 

 

Then the man-tears start flowing!  Poor Travis!  He’s lost so much this season – Shelly, Emily and now his umbrella!  I really hope he finds love!

 

 

It’s group date time and Emily takes the boys to see the new Pixar movie Brave.

 

 

Then she informs them that they will be competing for her love in their own version of the Highland Games while wearing kilts.

 

 

Wolfie seriously made the best faces during this episode!  I wish we got to see more of him because he seems really funny!

 

 

Then the guys started changing into their competition attire and I started drooling…

 

 

YUMMY!

 

 

Every year there is one episode that features a lot of random street cats and I think it is so hilarious and random!  Remember after Blakely got eliminated on Ben’s season and after her exit they showed a lonely street cat walking the streets?

 

There were like 5 random street kitties in this episode!  WTF?

 

 

I just think Jef is the cutest and he makes the funniest expression and gestures when he is talking.  He does this gesture a lot – it’s like he’s holding Emily’s heart in his hand!

 

 

I’m sorry, but grown men riding donkeys makes me pee my pants a little!  They looked so funny and I couldn’t stop singing this song 69 Boyz -Let Me Ride That Donkey

 

 

I did think it was a little weird that they were doing more Scottish themed things while in Croatia but whatevs, I’ll go along with it.

 

 

Emily started off the competition and she was actually really good at archery!

 

 

Holy crap!  Doug’s arms are the most massive arms I have ever seen!  I didn’t even know you had that many muscles in your arms???

 

 

LOL.  Again – I just think Jef is the cutest thing ever.  I just want to pinch his cheeks every time we get to see him!

 

 

Sean, being the genetic gift that he is, was amazing at every competition!

 

 

Chris, on the other hand, was horrible and couldn’t even get the archery stance right!  I think he just feels super uncomfortable on camera!

 

 

Remember how bad Chris was at dancing?  Well, this was worse!

 

 

You know what he’s even worse at than archery – log throwing!

 

 

Jef was pretty bad at it too!

 

 

Sean, of course, was amazing at it and even broke the huge log!  The guys running the competition looked amazed!

 

 

Emily said she wasn’t impressed by big muscles but it was hard to deny that Sean’s strength turned her on!  Heck, it was even turning me on!

 

 

Up next was a competition where you basically had to play tug-of-war on with a stick and you could choose your opponent.  Chris decided to go up against Doug – what the heck was he smoking???

 

 

Emily looked as equally as baffled as to why he would pick the Hulk to go up against!

 

 

I think Chris realized too late that he was an idiot for going up against Doug.  He looks like he’s about to get his arms ripped off!

 

 

However, being the nurturer that she is, Emily decides to give the winner’s cup to Chris after the crushing defeat to his ego.  Some people might say that it’s because she likes him – I really think that she feels motherly towards him and wants to protect him, which isn’t very good for a romantic relationship!

 

 

Sean, who pretty much won every competition, looked super pissed that he didn’t get the pimp cup.  I don’t blame him – it was total BS that he didn’t get it!  You would think that because he got jipped out of the win, maybe he would get the group date rose…

 

 

Remember how I just said that Chris and Emily were lacking in the romantic connection department?  All you have to do is take a look at this kiss to confirm that I just said.  The kissey-face kiss is reserved for babies, kids, and people you aren’t in love with.

 

 

Speaking of bad kisses, whyyyyy are Sean and Emily’s kisses not up to par with Arie’s or even Jef’s?  Look, blondes aren’t even my type – but I’m more and more attracted to Sean every time I see him!  Y’all can do better than this!

 

 

When Arie pushed Emily up against the wall and planted one on her I swear my heart stopped beating for a second!  Here’s the thing: y’all keep on sending me stuff that supposedly he did with his friend’s girlfriend and blah blah blah and maybe he is an awful human being!  I have no idea.  All I can go on is what I see on the show and so far, I really do see the strongest connection between Arie and Emily!

 

 

Words are not even needed for this picture.

 

 

Back at the house, Ryan is preparing for his 1-on-1 date and he decides to wear some hideous shoes – I’m sure because they are Emily’s favorite color.  I can PROMISE you that Emily would NEVER date a guy that wore shoes like this!

 

 

Totally kidding :)   I love Jef and I think this was an adorable thing to do!

 

 

After Jef said this, I hopped aboard the #TeamJef train a little more.  I think that he is finally opening up and becoming more affectionate toward Emily – I just hope it’s not too late!

 

 

I know that a lot of people find Chris attractive and even Emily finds him super hot but I’ve got to say that he really doesn’t do it for me.  This talk they had kinda made my skin crawl and it made him look a little desperate.

 

 

Regardless of my feelings about Chris, Emily decides to give him the group date rose and Arie looked so sad.  Hell, I would have given him the rose after that wall-kiss!

 

 

I have no idea what Jef and Arie were looking at here but I just think they are adorable together.  It’s a little weird because I feel like they have the best connection with Emily but they also seem to be best friends!  Maybe if Emily doesn’t pick them they can become the first double Bachelors?

 

 

When Emily comes to pick Ryan up for their date, Arie and Jef both roll their eyes and smirk at Ryan’s cockiness and it gives me a great idea – They should totally have their own show!  (Thank you Andrea for the great show name :) )

 

 

While Emily is trapped in the tiny car with Ryan, you can totally see it on her face that she doesn’t really want to be on this date.  She keeps calling him rotten (which she claims means trouble) but I’m pretty sure it just means that he’s horrible at flirting or keeping someone attracted to him.

 

 

They go boating for oysters and I can’t tell what made Emily want to vom more – the slimy texture of the oyster or the slimy personality of Ryan.

 

 

Then they walk all around town where they encounter this scary old guy that was screaming at Emily and telling her that Ryan was no good for her!  Kidding.  Emily keeps on saying that she is seeing parts of Ryan that she likes but when someone says this, it mostly means that they don’t like a majority of your parts.  I think that Emily doesn’t want to give up on him because he seems so perfect for her on paper, but alas – Ryan will use that paper to later prove to her that he isn’t the right one for her.

 

 

Throughout the day and at dinner Ryan calls Emily a trophy wife or says trophy wife at least 5-6 times.  Has that bump-it damaged your brain, child? Why on earth would you keep on saying this to her when she obviously doesn’t like it?  Ok, maybe you mean it in a different way?  Then make up a new term for it! Dang!

 

 

Then Emily starts looking down… dun dun dun!

 

 

Then Ryan presents Emily with a list that he made that contains all the characteristics he wants in a wife.  It includes nothing about family except the part where Emily would be a servant of the family and put it before herself.

 

 

She basically stops looking at him even before he stops reading it.  She can’t bring herself to give him the rose.

 

 

But then he tries to talk her out of it because he is super manipulative and he is used to doing this sort of thing and getting what he wants.

 

 

Man, I love her.  She stands her ground, follows her heart, and sends him home.  It was amazing!

 

 

As much as Emily looked relieved to send Ryan home, the boys were ecstatic when someone came to pick up Ryan’s bags because he was going home.  Here’s the thing: I want to believe that Ryan is nice and great and he just wasn’t portrayed in the best light.  However, these dudes were super happy when he left and I don’t think it was because they viewed him as their biggest competition.

 

 

Arie decides to pay Emily a visit and they already look so darn comfortable with each other.  It looks like they have been dating for years!  He basically tells her that she made the right decision sending Ryan home because Ryan was in it more for the competition.  This makes Emily happy because Arie finally proves that he has her back.

 

Then they share some super hot kisses that only go on in the fantasy suite.

 

 

I mean, am I crazy?  I love Jef too and I think he is amazing but we aren’t seeing this type of connection with Jef!  Do y’all think the Arie-Cassie relationship reveal ruins their connection that much?

 

 

At the cocktail party, Wolfie finally opens up to Emily by showing that he carries around his dead grandparents funeral cards in his wallet and shares that his grandpa died on that exact day, years ago.  Emily, who is one of the most empathetic people you will ever meet, got tears in her eyes and admitted that she still finds days like that really hard.

 

 

Then they finally kiss because they share some common ground but it isn’t a fireworks-type of kiss at all.

 

 

Doug is a grown @$$ man!  Why won’t he make a move on Emily???  There is no way he moves this slow!

 

 

Emily takes control by putting his arm around her put his arm stays pretty motionless and his hand just lays there like a dead fish.  He doesn’t even try to cop a feel at all!  Emily is basically begging him to kiss her.

 

 

Then they get up and Doug goes to give her a hug!  I give up on you Doug!

 

 

Then Doug starts crying about his son but I think it’s also because he can’t find his balls anymore.

 

 

During the rose ceremony, Emily has one rose left and she is having trouble deciding whether to give Wolfie or Daddy Doug the rose!  She goes to talk to Chris Harrison and because she’s had no issue sending people home, we all think that she’s going to send them both home!

 

 

Alas, Emily decides to give them both a rose and their smiles just melted my heart!

 

 

I really think this is one of the sweetest and most surprising endings to the show that I have ever seen!

 

 

I’m guessing next week, we all find out about Arie and Cassie’s former relationship.  I had thought previously that Emily wouldn’t care that much but I think since no one told her up until this point – she is pissed!  That gives me the sads.

 

So what did y’all think of this episode?  Should Emily have kept Travis around?  Did you laugh when he threw the umbrella down?  Did you pee your pants when Chris finished last in every competition?  Did Sean deserve the pimp cup?  Did you fantasize about Arie?  Are you glad Ryan went home?  SO MANY QUESTIONS!

  1. who is Cassie?

    Comment by Francesca — June 19, 2012 @ 2:18 pm

  2. You go girl! Your recaps are so much fun to read! Thanks Ashley! I am #teamjef

    Comment by Molly — June 19, 2012 @ 2:24 pm

  3. Love your blog – yes, fantasize about Arie and think you are 100% right about their connection.

    Comment by Amanda Priestley-Callis — June 19, 2012 @ 2:29 pm

  4. I really hope that the producer dating is not the unraveling of Arie and Emily. On Cassie’s twitter today she answered someone that it was 9 years ago and only for a few weeks and nothing serious. I would be upset too that no one told me, but I really hope her pride and hurt feelings don’t get in the way of a something great. She has a great connection with Jef but it is no where near where she is with Arie. And Sean is a distant third.

    Comment by Jamie — June 19, 2012 @ 2:50 pm

  5. Ashley your blogs are hilarious! And so true! I love that you love Arie as much as I do. I can’t wait for next week.

    Comment by Courtney — June 19, 2012 @ 2:50 pm

  6. And wouldn’t it really be Cassie’s place to tell her since she is her producer and spends the most time with her than anyone?

    Comment by Jamie — June 19, 2012 @ 2:51 pm

  7. There’s no doubt that Arie feels A LOT for Emily but I don’t think she is feeling as much as he is feeling right now. But if you look at her with Jef, the feelings, although growing slowly are pretty mutual! I don’t think the Cassie thng had anything to do with Arie being F3, I just think that in the end, Jef won her heart and not just because of the very passionate kisses!

    Comment by OCrazy — June 19, 2012 @ 2:52 pm

  8. Did you not see the kiss jef and emily shared? Arie to me looks very sloppy when he kisses her.. I know u love him but all he does is kiss her. You cant base a relationship just on kissing you have to talk to.

    Comment by Jb — June 19, 2012 @ 2:54 pm

  9. Laughing so hard right now, this is a great blog! Glad Travis is gone, they didn’t have chemistry & throwing the umbrella was the most passion I saw of him. Chris is just too wet behind the ears for Emily, finishing last, please go home Chris. Sean deserved the Brave Cup. Arie isn’t my type, but the kissing is hot. Would of liked to have Ryan around a little longer, he is pure comedy to me. Jef had me at “Can I tell you a secret…”
    Looking forward to reading your blog next week!

    Comment by Elizabeth — June 19, 2012 @ 2:57 pm

  10. Ashley, your blogs are so funny! Basically the only ones that make me smile or laugh out loud. I’m only reading yours from now on…

    Comment by Jolene — June 19, 2012 @ 2:59 pm

  11. This wasn’t as funny as your previous blogs, but I did ROFL when u said that Doug was emotional because he couldn’t locate his balls.

    At this point, it’s hard to imagine anyone other than Arie with Emily. I have to see a rejected proposal with my own eyes be4 I beleive she chose someone else.

    Comment by Liah — June 19, 2012 @ 3:01 pm

  12. Cassie is a producer for The Bachelor/ette show.

    Comment by Danyele — June 19, 2012 @ 3:08 pm

  13. I agree that there is physical chemistry with Arie….but Em is starting to develop real (physical and emotional) feelings for Jef. Ashley, I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts on Arie/Jef after Prague and Hometowns. Your blog is the best, BTW

    Comment by Hollie — June 19, 2012 @ 3:08 pm

  14. Ashley, I swear you keep getting funnier with these blogs!! That tank top thing Ryan had on was the weirdest thing ever – wondering if it had a built in shelf bra???

    I like what I see with Jef and Emily, but she’s hard to read for sure. What I like the best is we are getting to see that Emily has a personality, she’s funny and fiesty at the same time.

    Comment by LZ — June 19, 2012 @ 3:12 pm

  15. you are hilarious!! Those screencaps are priceless!!!
    I want her to be with Arie but I know ABC is sitting us up for the fall. I think we he said he was falling for her it was end of the road for him. I think it was his kiss of death. I think he will do well after the show. I just don’t see Jef as a Daddy type. Would he move his company across the country to be with her. Would she move across the country and take Ricki away from her grandparents? I think who ever is the F1 they won’t set a date for a long time. The dude has to get to know the kid first. ABC does crazy things to there fans. Plus, Ashley you know he the F1 is anyhow! LOL

    Comment by Kate — June 19, 2012 @ 3:20 pm

  16. Sorry, but love and infatuation are two different things. Yes, there are plenty of guys who are womanizers like Arie who are good at the art of seduction, but eventually they will betray your trust and put themselves into too many too hard to resist temptation situations due to their flirtatious nature. It’s much easier to take a good man like Jef and teach him the art of seduction, which Jef is already good at. Arie is more of an exhibitionist while Jef is more reserved in public until he gets to know you and he’s the type who prefers to make you tingle off camera and can be depended on who you can trust and grow old with. Arie is good for a romp and a dump – yours or his whomever can get up and run away the faster or when he finds his next conquest. He slept with his friend’s girlfriend while sleepng with two other women RIGHT BEFORE coming on this show and was texting one of them while sticking his tongue down Emily’s throat. I don’t think Emily and he have share the same morals.

    Comment by Arie is a player — June 19, 2012 @ 3:20 pm

  17. It’s freaking hilarious…! I don’t remember laughing so much…! Thank you for that! I see a lust connection with Arie and a love connection with Jef..!

    Comment by Lisette — June 19, 2012 @ 3:34 pm

  18. @Francesca She is a producer on the show and is now engaged to an other one.

    And Ashley, I had people calling me obsessed by Arie and Emily together XD

    Comment by Cecile — June 19, 2012 @ 3:45 pm

  19. What about Ryan’s facial hair? He has beard fangs.

    Comment by AJ — June 19, 2012 @ 3:45 pm

  20. This Spivey is a fake ass. She kisses ass every single girl of her season who is to become the bachelorette and claims to be best friends with them. What a shame. But she kisses Emily’ ass more because Emily is out of her league and she is in awe of Emily. She thinks the fact that Emily is the bachelorette is like justice in the world. Therefore she finds every single way possible to tell all the guys are truly interested and head over heels for Emily even though she knows the guys are in it for the travel, fun, and TV appearances as much as in previous seasons.
    Spivey, and even Marrisa, Shawntel were very jealous with Ashley H because Ashley H was the Bachelorette. They picked Ashley H apart during the airing of her season. Spivey might have been a little easier on Ashley H, only went so far as to claim “oh that guy is not into Ashley H, that guy is not ever that into Ashley H” to make herself feel better.

    Lucky for Spivey. Ashley H is a generous and forgiving girl and she just proves how wrong everyone was to her in her season by being nice and kind. Y’all, my momma told me you can kill people with kindness and not meanness. That ‘s what Ashley H has been doing and the #Bachelornation people turn around and love Ashley H and everyone is now hoping to be invited to the wedding of the year. lol

    Comment by you're fake ashley spivey — June 19, 2012 @ 3:53 pm

  21. i look forward to your blogs every week, ashley. so funny. i’d like to think we could be besties. creepy? probs. anyway…my thoughts:

    -poor travis, he never stood a chance. the umbrella toss was great.
    -ryan’s tank top had me rolling. i would have preferred a black v-neck to whatever the heck that was. so glad he was finally sent packin’.
    -i, like you, see absolutely NO chemistry between emily and chris. and i don’t find him attractive at all, but that’s just me (or us).
    -i will be team arie ’til the end. i see the most passion between the two of them. i know there’s been plenty of dirt on arie, but whatever. i take that gossip with a grain of salt. i think they have real feelings for one another that go beyond lust.
    -jef is adorable. like a baby. i just can’t picture him with emily. she seems to really dig him though, so…? i like him, but not for her.
    -sean would be my second choice for emily. i think they are a good match based on similar values/morals, and that plays a big part in a long-standing relationship. the spark could be bigger, but i think that could grow as the weeks progress…. we’ll see.

    Comment by merritt — June 19, 2012 @ 4:02 pm

  22. Thanks Ashley, your blog is hilarious! I can’t wait for your blog after the show.
    I’m team Arie too. Though Jef also has my heart, but Arie and Emily…they are so cute and passionate together.
    Happy that Ryan finally left, but I have too agree with Elizabeth he is a walking joke, he just needs a mirror and his life will be complete =).

    Comment by Di — June 19, 2012 @ 4:30 pm

  23. So funny! I was laughing so hard while reading your blog that my stomach hurt! Can’t wait for next week!

    Comment by Barbara — June 19, 2012 @ 4:32 pm

  24. emily is really tough on arie. someone should have disclosed the relationship to emily, but, come on. if it 9 years ago, then you need to ease up. i mean, you’re CURRENTLY dating 6 guys he knows.

    i never go looking for info between shows, but i had to go find out more because arie is such a great guy.

    if she dumps him, i want him to be the next bachelor.

    Comment by jen — June 19, 2012 @ 4:41 pm

  25. Love your blog! You are so spot on. I don’t care what the media says about his past, there is no denying they are the best for each other. Hopefully the finale will prove all the Arie haters and Reality Steve wrong.

    Comment by Kim — June 19, 2012 @ 4:42 pm

  26. i am so PISSED OFF that i just read a spoiler in the comments.

    Comment by jen — June 19, 2012 @ 4:44 pm

  27. I think she has the best connection with Jef. He seems so down to earth, sweet and caring, but he has a goofy side, too. I love that he doesn’t take himself too seriously and he seems to really care for Emily. I found this video uploaded by one of his friends about a year ago. Jef and his friends having fun in NYC. He looks like a lot of fun to be around!Adore your blog! http://vimeo.com/17059495

    Comment by Kate — June 19, 2012 @ 4:45 pm

  28. Great Blog!!! So glad Emily saw right through Ryan’s BS. I have so much respect for her for sending him home and sticking to her decision. She’s such a smart strong woman!!

    I like Arie but I think the attraction will fade with him because he didn’t tell Emily about the producer (even though men don’t fess up about other woman), but Emily wants a man that tells her everything and has her back. This will be strike two for Arie.

    I’m for TEAM SEAN. He’s the best fit for Emily. He’s super hot which Emily has noticed , he’s good-natured, has family values, mature, no trouble, romantic and that is all good husband quality and what Emily wants most importantly.

    I think Jef is now more interested in her.

    I think Emily is smitten with Chris, she lights up around him, but he’s falling behind in showing her attention.

    Comment by Stella — June 19, 2012 @ 5:04 pm

  29. 1. I thought Travis was being way too over the top. Nice guy…but maybe a last ditch attempt to become a fan fav for the bachelor? Who knows.

    2. I do NOT think Em and Arie have the best connection. Arie = LUST. He is realllyyyy smooth with her and initiates these passionate kisses every time and she likes it. That’s why it seems like they have the best connection but its def physical and that’s because Arie is the one making it physical and Em’s liking it.

    3. Her and Jef have the most real connection. She’s been smitten with him since he rolled up on a skateboard. Honestly, if they didn’t have the best connection/if she didn’t really really like him, and with their relationship clearly moving slower than Arie and Sean, he would’ve been GONE.

    Sean is what her brain says, Arie is what her body says, but Jef is what her heart says.

    Comment by Lynn — June 19, 2012 @ 5:05 pm

  30. Ashley,

    Your comments are so spot on and hilarious every week! Chris definitely needs to go home!!! why is he still there?? I agree with Enily’s decision to send Travis and Ryan home 100%!! But, if it were me, I would have also devised a plan to get Chris and Wolfie out too. Your comment about Doug’s arms was awesome! He is one hot papa, and if I were Emily I would have jumped him if he didn’t make the first move! I also love Arie too though! I wish I had Emily’s “too many men, so little time” dilemma!

    Comment by Kristi — June 19, 2012 @ 5:08 pm

  31. Thanks Ashley for another entertaining blog.You have everything down pat. What do you suppose is wrong with Doug? Why won’t he kiss Emily? If it were not for the fact that he fathered a child I would think he was gay which is perfectly alright but why sign up for the Bachelorette? I love this guy and think his arms could win a beauty contest. I only wish those arms were holding Emily!

    Comment by Bobbie — June 19, 2012 @ 5:11 pm

  32. Whoever that loser is who is hating on you should Shut the F<%^< Up! I am so sure that you are ignoring her comments, but she is obviously jealous of you!

    Comment by Kristi — June 19, 2012 @ 5:14 pm

  33. I think she would have liked to send BOTH Doug and Wolfie home, however, then she would have been down to four – and at four you have the hometown dates, and I don’t think the hometown dates were coming just yet because there were to be a certain amount of episodes. Next week, two of these three, Chris, Wolfie and Doug will be gone, leaving the one that remains with Jef, Sean and Arie for hometown. Obviously Arie makes hot vibes on TV, but growing old together? He’s too much of a player. Jef seems so young. Sean would actually be perfect, but I don’t think he will be picked.

    Comment by Francesca — June 19, 2012 @ 5:31 pm

  34. Love her rose ceremony dress. Looks a lot like Carrie Underwood’s. Both gorgeous women with great wardrobes. :)

    Comment by Emily — June 19, 2012 @ 5:58 pm

  35. Boooooo to the SPOILERS!! It ruins the fun of guessing who will be picked and you can’t help but to read it. Why should Reality Steve get to spoil when the Bachelorette is not supposed to tell anyone what happens?

    Comment by Karli — June 19, 2012 @ 6:09 pm

  36. Em told Jef “me too” when he said he was freaking crazy about her. She’s falling for Jef. And deleted scene of them talking about his company and she would be part of it, her eyes were lighting up.

    Comment by Patrice — June 19, 2012 @ 6:15 pm

  37. I think Emily finally sees what many have seen from the beginning. Arie is a smooth ladies’ man, has all the right moves, and she’s falling for b/s right now. He’s player, but not a dbag, which means he’s a nice guy, would be a great bachelor, but he’s not looking to settle down and be a dad right now, but dated around. His friends said he dated ALOT, you can tell, he has the moves down to a science. Emily will realize it soon.

    Comment by Meghan — June 19, 2012 @ 6:18 pm

  38. Why can’t guys eat ice cream cones??? I get they might look silly, but cones > cups any day! Some things are more important than looks haha

    Comment by Jessica — June 19, 2012 @ 6:21 pm

  39. I just don’t get the Arie thing. He creeps me out! He is a little too feminine for me, and I can’t watch him kissing. It looks like he is giving her a tonsillectomy, not a passionate kiss. I love how sweet Jef is with her. She is totally into him. She talks to him differently than the other guys, and you can catch little smiles from both of them when they are together, like they are trying to hide their feelings, so they don’t give it all away.

    Comment by DLH — June 19, 2012 @ 6:57 pm

  40. Grow up. Damn your immature and annoying. Your bf must be gay for sure.

    Comment by HeySus — June 19, 2012 @ 7:00 pm

  41. Comment by Kate

    Sorry, but love and infatuation are two different things. Yes, there are plenty of guys who are womanizers like Arie who are good at the art of seduction, but eventually they will betray your trust and put themselves into too many too hard to resist temptation situations due to their flirtatious nature. It’s much easier to take a good man like Jef and teach him the art of seduction, which Jef is already good at. Arie is more of an exhibitionist while Jef is more reserved in public until he gets to know you and he’s the type who prefers to make you tingle off camera and can be depended on who you can trust and grow old with. Arie is good for a romp and a dump – yours or his whomever can get up and run away the faster or when he finds his next conquest. He slept with his friend’s girlfriend while sleepng with two other women RIGHT BEFORE coming on this show and was texting one of them while sticking his tongue down Emily’s throat. I don’t think Emily and he have share the same morals.
    Kate, I totally agree with everything. Ashley, I’m younger than you but still pretty sure relationships are not built JUST on passionate kisses and chemistry. If she wants a husband and a father for Ricki she must look further than that infatuation- Arie is just a player. #teamjef

  42. Ashley, yours is the one I wait for every week, and it never disappoints!!! You do a great job!

  43. Seriously love the attraction between Jef and Emily. It can’t be denied.

  44. I also don’t see Chris the way Emily must see him. He kind of creeps me out. I JUST told someone about his head bobble earlier today and how I couldn’t figure it out. So strange.

    Comment by Danielle — June 19, 2012 @ 8:06 pm

  45. Oh my God .Some of these comments are crazy. Mia did you read every piece of trash on Arie? And you believe it all? It’s like you copied this from some rag magazine.What a loser you are. You need to get a life. Ashley I agree with everything you said. Hope she ends up with Arie. I don’t think Emily would act like this if she didn’t care for him. Keep us laughing please.

  46. Stella made this comment above and I couldn’t agree more.

    “Sean is what her brain says, Arie is what her body says, but Jef is what her heart says”

    Comment by Emily — June 19, 2012 @ 9:17 pm

  47. I totally agree with Karli–reality steve drives me crazy. It use to be that you only knew spoilers if you sought them out on his website, but now wetpaint reports them, as well as people that comment on blogs. Sad :( I am really loving that they’ve been able to keep the ending from him so far this season…AND that they tricked him with Ali & Brad’s seasons–that was AWESOME! He has such a negative view on everyone and everything, he literally tries to suck the fun and joy out of this show. He’s like the Grinch!

    haha, anyway! There’s my vent on him! Love most of these comments (except the crazy ones…seriously, what hole did those people crawl out of just to comment??!).

    I haven’t seen this deleted scene mentioned about Jef talking about his company. What? Do you notice that she is usually sitting right next to Jef in EVERY group setting? I don’t know if he does that, or she does…but I’ve seen it so much that I don’t think it’s a coincidence anymore!

    So excited to see Emily’s love story play out! Keep blogging Ashley!

    Comment by Beth — June 19, 2012 @ 9:25 pm

  48. PS–I was SO hoping you’d freeze frame that shot of Jef and Arie checking out Emily giving Chris the rose, and was wondering what caption you’d put. “What’s he got that we don’t?” was awesome! haha!

    Comment by Beth — June 19, 2012 @ 9:27 pm

  49. Arie >> Christian Grey

    I will be so sad if the whole Arie and Cassie thing is made into a big deal. From what I’ve heard it was 9 years ago for a couple of weeks. not a big deal. maybe he should have mentioned it to her or better yet cassie should have bc when is a good time to be like oh yea so 10 years ago i went on a couple of dates with your producer.

  50. I love your blog Ashley – it sooo made my morning! I think it’s my new favourite Bachelorette re-cap – you say exactly what I’m thinking but make it sound much funnier :)

    Comment by MissKM — June 19, 2012 @ 10:59 pm

  51. woke the baby by laughing too hard. Will miss Ryan’s flamboyance, he was the last of the characters. I wonder where the drama will come from now? Everyone gets along well, Emily is too good a judge of character. Still mourning Shelley too – Travis should have mailed her to a hatchery or returned to mother ostrich.

    Comment by Also Susan — June 19, 2012 @ 11:08 pm

  52. Love your recaps – they are my fav. Always makes me smile :-)

    Comment by Susanne — June 20, 2012 @ 1:12 am

  53. Nothing wrong with men eating ice cream cones or popsicles!!!

    Arie should have told Emily himself about the producer. With such little time to build a foundation for marriage, Arie should now TRUST is important. Even if it was “not serious”, He is on the show and she is working with the producer and that is a must tell situation!! Arie should have figured it would have come out sooner or later (they always dish out the dirt on people.) That would make a girl second guess his intentions by hiding that. Is he on the show to build his fame or looking for marriage? I think Arie is used to being a player and figures he’ll just BS his way out of it and say it wasn’t serious!!

    Comment by Michelle — June 20, 2012 @ 1:31 am

  54. @Danielle that’s rude, I was just saying my opinion. Maybe I didn’t express myself best, you see I’m from Croatia so we are deff two different worlds. I don’t even know what “rag” means. I’t sounds like something cheesy- just like this whole bachelorette thing is. I don’t take it seriously at all, actually it was late at night when i wrote that so maybe that’s why it sounds so serious :) but still think Arie knows exactly what he’s doing and he does it without a flaw. I read a couple articles about him,I believe them, yes. just because the way it is now with Emily and Arie-i’m sorry but it’s way too good to be true. He’s got all his moves right, acts like he’s done it many many times on many women. About Jef- I like him so much because he looks like he doesn’t even belong there. So sweet and REAL. I don’t think Emily will pick Arie, she’s smarter than that.

    Comment by mia — June 20, 2012 @ 5:11 am

  55. Arie is too flirty. PLAYER. I’m not surprise about the cheating spoiler.
    ABC released several clips of Emily and Jef to make it so obvious that she picks him??

    I have a feeling it is Sean.

    Comment by BB — June 20, 2012 @ 5:33 am

  56. Seems like Chris is more like that bobblehead of himself he brought on the first night every show!

    Comment by Kerri — June 20, 2012 @ 5:38 am

  57. Ashley!!
    Your blog is fantastic!
    There were a couple highlights for me this week:
    Mens (Sean’s) big, strong muscles being put on display in his kilt and tank top. I’m sorry, but if a man looks like that in a tank, he can wear it everyday!
    Arie pining Emily against the wall/bed cuddles and make out. It’s just all good with those two!
    The Bad:
    Ryan and his Lululemon white tank top… seriously!? I have one in purple with that same neckline/straps! His shoes, his list and his face in general round out the bad!
    I really wish there was a bit of a censor on here- mostly so people couldn’t be hatin on you (you’re hilarious). I feel bad for people who put that much time into waiting for a blog to post so they can rant about someone they don’t even know!? So the haters, and the spoilers need to just back off and let the rest of us enjoy and comment on the best Bachelor blog out there!!

    Comment by Jenn — June 20, 2012 @ 5:51 am

  58. Oh, you crack me up every week! I kind of watch The Bachelorette now just to see what you’re going to say on your screen shots! Hysterical!
    Ryan = slime ball, you are spot on about him. Surprised it took her as long as it did to get rid of him. And Chris makes my skin crawl for some reason. I’m not seeing what she does in him but then again, I’m not there. Jef is a doll, so sweet and humble but he’s still young, not sure he’s ready to life with a child. Now, Arie…or Christian Grey as I like to call him in my head….their chemistry is undeniable but I also think they have an emotional connection aside from all of the steamy kisses. She told him he’s the one that she feels the closest to and that’s why she was so hard on him. I will be disappointed if they don’t wind up together but truly, she has three GREAT guys in Arie, Sean and Jef….she can’t go wrong.

    Comment by Amy — June 20, 2012 @ 6:21 am

  60. Love the blog – very funny, as always, because it’s all in good fun. I still love me some Sean, and next week’s preview makes it look like he steps it up in the kiss department!! CAN’T WAIT!

    Comment by Martha — June 20, 2012 @ 6:43 am

  61. I love your blog, it is the best one out there!

    Comment by Amy — June 20, 2012 @ 7:42 am

  62. I love Sean, he is so hot and sweet and totally my type, so I want her to pick him, but honestly it doesn’t look like Emily and I share the same tastes, it looks like she prefers the skinny, smart, and wealthy type. I wish Roberto wasn’t going to be the next bachelor because I really could have handled watching Sean for an entire season!
    I wish Wolfie would have gotten some more air time. He just seems so hilarious and interesting and ya gotta love a St. Louis boy. I think that for this show going two hours every week there would be more time to show a little more of the final guys personalities and Wolfie made it to the final six, I think we should know him better by now. And I don’t know if Emily is just boring or what, but this is the first season I have ever felt like they show only five minutes of a date and the rest just seems to be random filler. I felt bad for Ashley during her season because she was such a hot mess and none of the guys except JP seemed really all that into her, but her season was so much more entertaining and I think it was because she just had a more spunky personality and she actually picked the guy I wanted her to (well I loved Ames, but I knew that wasn’t practical.)

    Comment by Olivia — June 20, 2012 @ 8:07 am

  63. Oh, and about that list. What bothered me most about Ryan’s arrogant @$$ was the way he never asked Emily how she felt about him, what she was looking for, etc. He never seemed to think he needed to be good enough for her, he always spent his time with her focused on how she could be good enough for him. He always blabbed on and on about what he was looking for in a woman. Pretty sure she was the bachelorette and supposed to be doing the picking. But I don’t think he was comfortable with that distribution of power and he made sure he let her know really fast that she needed to be the perfect wife for him. Because he thinks he is God’s gift to humankind.

    Comment by Olivia — June 20, 2012 @ 8:15 am

  64. I’m convinced the old man on Ryan’s date was trying to tell Ryan that he looked EXACTLY LIKE HIM when he was younger– and the photo he kept pointing at was his younger self.(I thought I saw a resemblance didn’t you??)

    I don’t know, but I think we can safely say we now know what Ryan looks like when he gets to be an old wrinkley man!

    Comment by Francesca — June 20, 2012 @ 8:51 am

  65. Great blog Ashley!

    Team Arie all the way! I hope she chooses him. They have the best chemistry & so much passion. I like Jef too but I just don’t see it with him and Emily. I get more of a brother/sister or BFF vibe. Also, his use of “like” so many times in one sentence is really annoying, for me at least. And if she chooses Jef or Sean, I will LMAO at the ATFR show if one of them says that they never saw as deep of a connection with any other guy like with us. Yeah sure. Watching those Emily and Arie kissing scenes got to hurt.

    Comment by Syreeta — June 20, 2012 @ 8:59 am

  66. Every time I saw Travis on TV, I got a massive “Kenneth the Page” vibe from 30 Rock. Seriously cracked me up.

    Comment by PunkA — June 20, 2012 @ 9:29 am

  67. Ashley,

    You are so right on!!! Totally agree that Chris is super creepy and I can’t figure out why she’s keeping him around. YES, Sean deserved the pimp cup! He even beat Doug in the tug of war contest. She kept saying that she doesn’t care about macho stuff/muscles, but COME ON! Poor guy. Also agree that she and Aerie have MAJOR chemistry, but Sean is a sweetheart and Jeff is awesome too. Your blog makes me laugh, and now when I watch the show I’m thinking, “Oh, Ashley will have something to say about this!” (i.e. Ryan’s white tank). Keep it coming!

    Comment by Elizabeth — June 20, 2012 @ 10:36 am

  68. Love your recaps Ashley! I look forward to them after every episode. What about Team V-neck vs. Team Hoodie. I am definitely on Team Hoodie. I think Emily will pick Arie in the end but will have the hardest time letting Jef go.

    Comment by Nance — June 20, 2012 @ 11:39 am

  69. Arie seems like a great guy but i don’t see much past the kisses with him and Emily. I would be angry if he didn’t tell me he dated a producer that is running around with me all day every day. First of all you only have so much time to figure out whether you want to marry a guy there or not. Therefore, it is crucial to build trust in the few weeks that you do have. Everyone is saying it was Cassie’s responsibility to tell her. Maybe, but Cassie is not dating her and she will not be the one proposing to her. Truth should have come out of Arie’s mouth a long time ago. You just don’t hide that you dated a person who is in your presence day in day out. In my books it is plain wrong. From the beginning I could not see what everyone saw in Arie that’s so attractive… but that’s just me. Not my type for sure. I truly think that Emily would be best off ending up with Jef or even Sean. Just think… I doubt tabloids have much dirt that could really change her mind about them after the show. Arie on the other hand… new story every week it seems like. As Arie himself said, Emily is a great judge of character, and I hope she continues to be that way and doesn’t let the momentary passion blind her.

    Comment by Armina — June 20, 2012 @ 11:53 am

  70. man… i still don’t see it. I don’t think Arie is that hot! Every time i see him, he looks like he is sicker with some illness. And his black tank top was the only one that was baggy. Everyone’s elses was nice and snug.

    Jef and Shawn have my heart. I think she should just go ahead and send everyone else home now.

    Comment by kendra — June 20, 2012 @ 11:58 am

  71. If Arie and Jef were the first double bachelors, I would be even more in love with that show than I am now! Talk about a guilty pleasure! Would the contestants get to date both of them or just pick one? I wouldn’t be able to choose one…I’d have to date them both. Just sayin’.
    I felt super bad for Travis leaving because I thought he was a funny and sweet guy…throwing the umbrella down made me go “awww.” But he is not right for her…team jef/arie. (I’m going with your double team idea all the way.)

    Comment by Leila — June 20, 2012 @ 1:10 pm

  72. “Sean, of course, was amazing at it and even broke the huge log!” That’s what she said!

    Comment by Private Citizen — June 20, 2012 @ 1:13 pm

  73. @ Olivia: “none of the guys in Ashley season was into her except JP” I disagree. On the contrary I think the guys in Emily are less into her than in Ashley’s season. Beware the edit. You can look for interviews of Ben C and many other guys from Ashley season that it was quite the opposite of what you said.

    Guys in Emily’s seem to want to be kept more for the travel. Arie and Jef are her top contenders and Arie said in this week’s interview they are against the world and they are absolutely cool with them dating Emily.

    I rewatch Ashley’s season and it seems those guys were much more interested in getting to know Ashley to see if there was anything there. The dramatic cocktail party in Hong Kong showed that they cared enough to be so pissed. Ashley seemed to be closed off to all the guys after Bentley left except for JP, whom she trusted. The guys that were truly angry when Bentley returned were not secure in their relationships with Ashley, while the ones who were were confident in their relationships with Ashley (ben, jp, ryan, ames) had no problems. Despite what people say, Ashley was a great bachelorette and she looked for the best and brought out the best in each of the guys. Emily, on the contrary, is only looking for their faults to dismiss them and is likely to overlook their strengths. Only time will tell with her choices. But right now it is not very promising. I agree with many comments about Arie being too smooth. If Emily is looking for a boyfriend to have an amazing sex life with for a couple of months or years, it is Arie.

    Comment by Confused — June 20, 2012 @ 1:34 pm

  74. I FREAKING LOVE YOUR BLOGS. <3

    Its good that Travis went home now, rather than later. Even though Ryan seemed like an ass and kept making those trophy wife reference, I still think he should have stayed. I think he meant "trophy wife" in a good way, and not a prize. But at the same time, even thought I WANT to like Ryan, he just had to say stuff like "I lost," "I'm supposed to be the winner," (something like that!) which I didn't like.
    BUT ANYWHO
    IM TEAM JEFFFFFFFF :) WOOOT!

    Comment by abera — June 20, 2012 @ 2:30 pm

  75. Arie is sure getting plenty of screen time and focus by the Producers, looks set to continue next week too. Meanwhile, Jef is slowly cranking the romance stakes and Emily will be in a total dither by the looks of things in the weeks to come.
    I have literally just caught up this season over the past couple of days and I was struck by Emilys immediate coquishness with Jef when he walked in on the first night. She sought him out on the first group date, frequently seen beside him on numerous occassions and has given him two group roses. The girl wants some Jef loving – I wouldn’t mind some too either!! He seems to actually bring out her carefree side, she’s only 26 years old – she’s still young and deserving of fun in her life! So I dont get the ‘he’s too young’ for her, in many ways I find him mature, thoughtful and very astute – all wrapped up in a carefree and calm exterior. He’s a rare find for this show.
    I just dont get Sean – I dont find that beefcake look attractive at all and his conversations are dull and slightly robotic. Sure he’s a safe compromise – but would Emily be truley happy with an insurance salesman.

    Comment by Marina — June 20, 2012 @ 2:46 pm

  76. My fav pics on the blog were the bobblehead Chris (I DIED watching that) and Ryan’s tank top (lol)
    I think her and Arie are great together. I hope she can forgive him :(

    Comment by Ash — June 20, 2012 @ 2:48 pm

  77. According to some sources close to Arie, he was specifically told not to bring up his past relationship with the producer to Emily. I think he was under the assumption that she’d been told before the show began. For the producers to hold it back, as if they were saving it to add some later drama, was really pretty crummy, as it could seriously affect a growing relationship. And Arie is ready to settle down. He was living with a woman, in a long term relationship, helping care for her two kids, in love, ready to get married before she decided she didn’t want any more kids. I think he’s sincere.

    Comment by Pammie H — June 20, 2012 @ 3:03 pm

  78. A lot of people on these posts are saying that Arie is a player. If that is the case, I would let him play me all day long! I am still Team Arie, but I would be happy if she winds up with him or Jef, as Jef seems like a totally sweet and genuine guy. Sean doesn’t do it for me AT ALL. Hope the others go home one by one! And I absolutely cannot wait to see the home town and fantasy suite dates….especially assuming Arie is still around. Great blog again, Ashley!

    Comment by Megan — June 20, 2012 @ 3:07 pm

  79. I am so glad so many others see through Arie’s smooth and completely fake and superficial charms that hide the black heart of a womanizer. I agree with everything (!!!) from

  80. I seriously laughed out loud when I saw your comment about Ryan’s tank top. If you didn’t find his attitude as the biggest turnoff in the whole world that shirt would do it for you?!? It looks like a female gap tank top from 10 years ago!!

    Comment by Shannon — June 20, 2012 @ 7:48 pm

  81. I swear that the black and white check shirt that Arie is wearing under his suit this episode is Jef’s that he wore last week to the rose ceremony. They really are BFFs! They can keep sharing clothes when they are The Double Bachelors! That would be the best show ever!

    Comment by grace — June 20, 2012 @ 8:29 pm

  82. I think Arie needs to chill out a little. When he kisses Emily – he seems so awkward and forceful and I get a little grossed out watching him lick his lips in the middle of what is supposed to be romantic. Jef is a pretty good guy but I think Sean is my favorite. I used to think Doug was the best – but then I realized he doesnt have a romantic bone in his body – he has no chance. Cant wait to see how it plays out.

    Comment by Marcupial — June 20, 2012 @ 9:01 pm

  83. I had the same exact questions about Chris! His head moves waaaaay to much! And I find his smile kinda creepy!

    I really hope the whole Cassie/Arie thing doesn’t ruin it for Arie and Emily. If she dumps him, I want him!

    The picture with Jef and Arie CRACKED ME UP! Your blogs are AWESOME and I look forward to them every week! Keep it up girl! :)

    Comment by Alecia — June 20, 2012 @ 9:06 pm

  84. Does someone know where to find the deleted scene of Jef telling Emily about his water company???

    Comment by Beth — June 21, 2012 @ 8:15 am

  85. I have been team Jef from night one. Agree the skate board thing had me pause a bit, but he has proven to be one sincere, sweet, genuine, likable young man. Emily needs someone who can be playful and silly at times. She is much too serious. Jef won’t be a player…won’t lie to her…won’t deceive her. He told her as much and I believe him. He is tender and caring…loved him putting his jacket on her and the way he did it. Reminds me of Roberto and how caring he was towards Ali.

    All Arie has going for him is that he wants to suck her face every chance he gets. Conversation with him will never have depth or understanding. I bet she can tell Jef anything and he will be there with his comforting ways and arms to hold her when she needs it. Sweet young man.

    If you want to die laughing, please please read Reality Steve’s blog about Monday’s episode. I actually printed it and highlighted so many portions cause they were beyond full of rich, hilarious takes on the men! God what he does to Ryan verbally is worth the price of admission! Do treat yourself to a laugh fest, whether you like Steve or not.

    Ashley, enjoyed your captions and take on the whole episode. Glad you are a Jef fan and I know he will be F1. Whether it will last is another thing though.

    Not a fan of Sean and his looks. Blond don’t do it for me and he seems so stiff and robotic. But a nice guy, for sure.

    All the guys seem to be having a blast together. No drama and all in agreement about Ryan…so telling when all the men feel the same about one guy. And saying they want Emily to see him for what he is says it all. They want her to be happy.

    Wish Ashey and JP all the best. He is such an amazing guy.

  87. You never fail to crack me up but this was the funniest one yet! I think that this season is finally starting to pick up, but your perspective is what makes it great :-) Totally agree with you on becoming more of a Jef fan in that exact moment, and had the same reaction to the wall kiss…I hope she’ll take it down to those two!

  88. OMG….. can yall no c that sean is the cutest and strongest she should totally pick him jef is so ugly he needs to fix hes hair and she is way too pretty for him and arie is just a cheater cause he goes and spends time with her and the other guys dont do that’s really stupid and lam and he dont have muscles like sean:)))) she needs a guy u can fight for her and not stand behind and let her do it herself!SEAN SEAN SEAN! ALLLL the way they would be soo cute and he would be a great couple that wouldnt break up after the show like every other couple on bachorlette or bachelor and he would be a great dad for ricki!!!! Team Sean!

  89. I DIED when Jef imitated Ryan after he went on his date with Emily. Soooo funny… Ryan is such a doucher.
    Got to love Arie and Jef, I can’t wait for next week. Arie better get it together.
    If a guy had Sean’s body with Arie’s head and Jef’s personality, he would be the perfect man.
    Chris has no lips.
    I can’t believe how hard Ryan was trying to manipulate Emily into changing her mind and give him the rose. Douche.

  91. I’m so glad Ryan went home. I was thinking the same thing about Chris’ bobblehead!! LOL! The way he looks at Emily gives me the creeps! He lowers his head and his eyes get weird. Sean should have gotten the cup. Arie’s kisses – OMG!!!! I agree with one of the previous posters that her connection is more physical with Arie. I’m liking Jef more and more.

    Comment by Tracey — June 22, 2012 @ 1:37 pm

  92. Okay, I’m not an expert but I am older, on my 2nd marriage and happily with my awesome husband for 8 years strong!
    Any guy that skateboards into a dating competition is still a child. Emily needs a man. That man is Arie. He has been in a relationship with a woman who had kids and took it on. He supports her and this silly Cassie thing was 9 years ago! I’m hoping Arie ends up with her!
    Sean is great also, Jef is so nice but he doesn’t even have a second F on his first name and he skateboards in. Too childish for me!
    We’ll see! #teamArie. Buy the shirt!

  93. Ashley – your blog is just hysterical. Also smart and sassy. Love it. I am not as classy as Kristen (comment 2 above this one) is. I just want to say that if it was actually you commenting on Kacie’s blog – it would be more helpful and kinder to actually tell her the truth. I think Kacie is adorable and sweet – but her writing skills are truly atrocious. Poor grammar, poor spelling, changes tenses and modifers in the middle of a phrase, writes incoherent sentences and thoughts. It really makes her look terrible to be exposing her lack of education in the public arena. I am not saying that to be mean – I am saying that to be protective. If you do communicate with her – please do so honestly. It isn’t just a few mistakes that people are writing about – it’s just awful and embarrassing.

  94. For some reason I just don’t see the “hotness” in Arie, that everyone talks about..

  95. First off I love reading all the funny things you post.. but seriously guys what about Doug?? he is the only real Guy on the show this season.. so what if he didnt feel comfortable kissing her, I mean dang Arie”s tongue was down her throat most of the time.. I dont feel she treated him fairly wgen he went to her about Kalon, he went to her as soon as he found out, but according to her no one had her back and didnt give out the rose!!!!

  98. I want her to end up with Jef, I really like him&them together and I think they would make supercute couple. But I agree, she seems in love with Arie, and I think they put that thing with producer in just to add some excitement because Arie is the obvious winner. I just wonder if he really is in love with her or really smooth with women. He seems to say what she wants to hear in a way more clever way than Ryan. I dont buy him dating a woman with two children before and that the woman dumped him because he reminded of her racer ex. But best of luck to them if he is the last one. I hope it will be Jef. But don`t you think Sean has a pretty good chance too? He seems all around perfect and the best one to have a lasting relationship with.

  99. I can’t wait for your blog for tonight’s episode. I’m so glad that the whole Arie thing was blown out way out of proportion and it wasn’t a big deal. I kind of think that the reason why they didn’t fil the convo among Arie, Cassie and Emily is because Arie was told not to say something! Emily even apologized to Arie! Anyway, I’m #teamArie all the way (I even bought the hoodie)! I just think their connection is at a different level. He’s the only one ready to be a dad having lived with a woman who has 2 kids. Jef is still a child. He just thinks that being a dad is all about play. I’ve seen his instagram photos and it speaks to immaturity. I know that sounds stalkerish but I just wanted to see what he puts out there apart from what I see on TV.

  100. Still on team Douger… I think he is so cute (thanks for the muscle stills) and such a sweet, genuine guy. Unfortunately, Emily initimidates the bejezus out of him which makes him look like a darn fool! Can’t wait to see how he addresses all of this on ATFR ceremony. Hopefully he can poke fun at himself which will make him even hotter!

  101. HAHA I love the video of Jef posted earlier: http://vimeo.com/17059495! I think watching the video definitely makes me see another side of him that I love!!!! Arie and Emily definitely have the best instant connection and the kisses are definitely hot, but I’m thinking that I’m starting to like Jef. He is growing on me!! Sean is def super Hot and seems like a great guy!!

    Definitely happy that RYAN is off the show. Now Chris needs to go and he is getting SUPER annoying.
