It’s time once again for the Emily, Jef, and Arie show!  Seriously, do y’all think she has a chance with anyone else?  Am I being too biased?  Let’s get started!



The guys arrive and I’ll give this much to Doug – at least he’s consistent.



I love Chris Harrison but is it really necessary for him to appear at the beginning of every episode and announce where they are?  Just 30 seconds before this, we saw pictures of the scenery and it said PRAGUE, in huge letters!



Luckily, Arie gets the first 1-on-1 date and I’m ready to live vicariously through Emily!



Chris is always complaining that the guys don’t think he’s mature enough to be with Emily and he is pretty much starting to prove them right.  Nothing turns me off harder than a guy that pouts.



Whyyyyyy do they never show Arie without his shirt?  Every other guy is shown shirtless when they are shaving! Give us what we want!



Emily kind of looked like a doctor or a dentist here until I saw the massive amount of cleavage coming out of her shirt!  Someone brought out the big guns for Arie!



Looks like it’s working because Arie is admitting that he’s head over heels in love with Emily!



My boyfriend Scott tries not to watch the show with me but he overheard Emily saying that she likes kissing Emily a lot.  Scott tore himself away from his iPad for a second to tell me that he thought this was really cute and he could tell that Emily is falling for Arie.  He didn’t even see Emily’s face on this date and he could tell that they were falling in love.



Because I have the sense of humor of a 12 year-old, I cracked up when they were rubbing the statue for good luck and Arie kept rubbing the lady’s butt.



But (pun intended), things got serious real quick.  Chris Harrison showed up to give a little background on the whole Arie/Cassie situation…



Basically, Cassie (who is Emily’s producer) used to date Arie 9 years ago.  Emily was told that Cassie dated one of Emily’s suitors before the show started but she wasn’t told which one.  Then at this point, Cassie decided to reveal to Emily that Arie was the guy.



One of Emily’s biggest characteristics that she wants in a husband is someone that’s honest.  I get that she was trying to get Arie to admit that he dated Cassie without asking him but I’m pretty sure that he was told not to mention the relationship.



Regardless, I think the fact that he has his ex’s name tattooed on his body is a lot bigger of a deal than the whole Cassie situation.



Ugh! Why didn’t they show the 3 of them talking about this!  It would have been major awkwardsauce and I love watching awkward situations!  I’m just glad the whole thing is over so people will stop leaving me comments about it – LIKE I DIDN’T KNOW!  I heard the rumors a long time ago, but I trust Cassie and knew production would take care of it.  Are we all done freaking out about it now?



Chris’ head is in full-bobble mode as he gets more and more pissed about not getting a 1-on-1 date.



I can’t believe the major b*tchface Chris is giving throughout this episode!  I guess at 25 you really haven’t learned that confidence is a whole lot more sexy than whatever the heck Chris is doing.



Back to Arie and Emily who have already gotten over the whole debacle.  I really love their chemistry.  I love it so much that I’m choosing to ignore the neckne that Arie has going on.  Is it razor burn or acne?  I really can’t decide.



Then Arie professes his love for Emily and while I think the timing is a little suspect – I think he was going to tell her this regardless of what just happened.  I think Arie has been smitten with Emily since their first date and has being quickly falling in love since then.  I know a lot of people think he’s smooth and a player but I respect his willingness to fall so quickly and be open about it.  I really like his passion.



Pay attention dudes – you all need to learn how to kiss from Arie!



It really is a joke how much of a non-issue this whole debacle was!  I think it says a lot that these two communicate really well and seem to work through their issues seamlessly.  I would tell y’all that I think they would be perfect together but I’m pretty sure everyone knows how I feel about Arie already.



It’s time for Wolfie’s 1-on-1 and he’s always talking about how he’s more of a closer.  This is not what you wear to close the deal dude.  You look like a 40 year-old about to go play golf.  Did you already use up all of your good outfits?  Did you not expect to last this long?


Yeah, we didn’t either. :)



I really don’t think Emily cared about what he had on but I’m pretty sure that she was hoping for more fireworks with him.



I really do not see any chemistry between them.  They are both too low-key to be a good match.



I think this John Lennon wall date idea is awesome.  It makes me really sad that they just painted a boring boat.  IT’S BORING LIKE THIS DATE!



Then, Emily tries to up the romantic factor by taking Wolfie to a touristy spot where people signify their love by attaching locks to a gate.  It’s supposed to represent eternal love and they both could hardly keep a straight face while talking about it.  When Wolfie had so much trouble getting the lock to close, I was dying with laughter at how perfect that was.



Oh you know, Chris is still pouting.



Back to Wolfie’s date and he’s pulling out the worst cheating story ever!  On a serious note, I’ve been cheated on in a horrible way too and situations like this can really hurt your self-esteem.  I hope that Wolfie has moved past this and knows that he deserves much, much better!



I think that if Wolfie hadn’t told this story, Emily would have definitely let him go during this date but she is way to empathetic to do that. The chemistry just isn’t there.



The group date card arrives and Crazy Chris is about to go psycho on everyone once his name is called for the group date.  Dude should know by now that if you complain about not getting a date – you won’t get a date!



At first I really laughed at Sean making this devilish face at Chris because I thought he was secretly making fun of him but then I realized that he was plotting his secret rendezvous with Emily.



He runs all over Prague and miraculously finds her (LOL) but he was kinda still boring me because he always seems so restrained.


Until he pushed Emily up against the wall Arie-style!



Like for real y’all, Sean was totally jean-jamming with Emily.  Now that dude can’t wait for the fantasy suite dates!  (You are so totally sexually frustrated at this point I’m sure!)  Heck, now I’m rooting for Sean a little bit more now!



It’s awkward group date time and Daddy Doug WILL NOT touch Emily.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM?



Because Daddy Doug refuses to touch Emily, Emily decides to have talk with Doug and eventually send him on his way but not before he kisses her at the most inappropriate time.



I actually pulled the covers over my head at this moment!  I’m so embarrassed for Daddy Doug.



Despite his Hail-Mary kiss, Emily sends Doug packing!



Doug says that he thinks his girl radar is broken but I think the dude just needs to grow a pair and put his arm around a girl.  I get that he was trying to be respectful but this is a show where you get hours and days to get to know someone!


On a lighter note, I think Doug’s ugly cry would totally marry my ugly cry and make the ugliest, crying babies.



Now that Emily sent Doug home, she has to have an awkward 2-on-1 with the jean-jammer and crazy baby eagle face.



Emily hands Sean the big key because she knows it will open the door and she’s terrified to be alone with Chris.  I’d like to think that she was hoping that they could jean-jam some more.



Back at the house, everyone is talking about how annoying Chris is – with or without a rose.



Emily seems to have caught on to the mini-tantrums Chris is throwing and she’s obviously repulsed.



She really did seem more into Chris before this point but this kiss really looks like the kiss of death for him – she couldn’t be less into this!



She ends up giving Sean the group date rose, despite him reverting to boring kisses again.  And I’m scared that Chris’ head is going to explode!  He is such a toddler!



Back at the house, Jef is getting ready for his 1-on-1 date and Chris has been emotional eating apparently because he has suddenly developed a double chin.



Jef and Emily visit a puppet store where they buy puppets that are supposed to look like them even though they don’t.  Then Jef melts my heart again when he runs back into the store to buy a Ricki puppet to complete their puppet family.  I love how much Jef incorporates Ricki into their conversations!  He is the cutest!



Yeah, it is a little weird that he is soooo good with puppets.  I feel like that is a talent that most people don’t have.



Seeing them reenact their moments together was really cute.  I especially like that their puppets as just as awkward with each other as they were at first.  One thing I will say about Jef and Emily is that he knows how to make her really laugh.  I know that Emily is really laughing with Jef because I used to try and make Emily laugh in the house because I love the way her real laugh sounds.  Is that weird?  Well, I’m kinda a weird person.



Jef reveals that he once broke up with a girl because his parents didn’t like her and Emily couldn’t be more terrified at this point.  If Jef made her that nervous, I can only imagine how nervous she’s going to be around his family!



Then they lay on the floor and talk about their future together and it really is just the cutest conversation in the world.  The fact that they can already imagine each other’s disciplinary roles is really cracking me up.



The Jef goes and says the best quote ever on the history of the show!  PS – I don’t give a flying flip that he got this off of some e-card.  That only makes me like it more so hush y’all!



Chris really needs to talk to Emily at the cocktail party and I’m really hoping that he doesn’t let those mantears start flowing!



I think Emily didn’t want to deal with anymore of Chris’ whining so she decided to not have the cocktail party!



Have y’all noticed that Chris starts rubbing his forehead vein when he is pissed?



Harrison cancels the cocktail party and I start worrying that Chris’ forehead vein is going to explode!



Wolfie looks worried too…



…but not because he has no chemistry with Emily.  Because Chris looks like he is about to freak out!



Here come the mantears!!!!!!



Then he interrupts the rose ceremony (which you should never ever do unless you want everyone to hate you) and I’m cracking up at Arie’s face.



Emily looks like she really doesn’t want to go talk (I mean wasn’t that the whole point of canceling the cocktail party) but she doesn’t want to seem rude so she says ok.



Rose ceremonies are Wolfie’s favorite, y’all.



Sean and Arie share a look and I’d like to think it was because they are now bonded to each other by putting Emily up against a wall.



I’m really just embarrassed for Chris.  I feel like he’s always trying to convince Emily to keep him around and that’s just sad – you should never do this in relationships.



Empathetic Emily will never send him home after this talk – she just doesn’t have the heart.  I’m not sure if she had already decided to send home Wolfie but Emily likes a fighter and she probably liked that Chris was fighting for her.



She still looked pretty heartbroken to send home Wolfie – he did really open up to her a lot and I know she really appreciated that.



Wow, Chris is moodier than toddlers I’ve nannied.  He’s acting like he didn’t have PMS for the past 4 days.



Emily’s face when she sent home Wolfie really broke my heart.  I can’t imagine how hard it is going to be for her these next couple of episodes!



Don’t worry dude! You’ll find someone great – I already know a couple of Bachelorette girls that are obsessed with ya!  We’ll set ya up at the reunion ;)


So what did y’all think about this episode?  Was the Arie/Cassie/Emily situation blown out of proportion?  Does Arie totally love Emily?  Did you want to put Chris in the corner and withhold his dinner?  Did Wolfie and Doug deserve to go home?  Does Jef steal your heart more and more every week?


Remember to head on over to my blog for more commentary on the Bachelor/Bachelorette world as well as my musings on relationships and why Cosmo is bad for you!

Also, every week I’m doing a blog for called Spivey Says!  I give my thoughts immediately after every episode of the Bachelorette and answer any questions y’all have about the show!  Head on over to check it out!


  1. THANK YOU for finally posting! I <3 your blog as usual and can't wait to see the HTD episodes! I am loving the natural connection she has with Jef and although nobody can deny her chemistry with Arie I feel it was too strong too fast and is mostly physical. JMO but I think the heart will eventually win over the hormones! TeamJef :)

  2. “Thanks for teaching me your wall move dude” and “You know what a big key means…” You crack me up! I’ve been looking forward to reading your blog since Monday night!

    Comment by Amy — June 28, 2012 @ 12:38 pm

  3. Your comments about Chris’s bobble head and how he acts like a toddler crack me up! Another great blog Ashley!

    Comment by Alecia — June 28, 2012 @ 12:40 pm

  4. I. LOVE. YOUR. BLOG!!! I always read it at work, and I always end up laughing out loud. Which is awkward since I probably shouldn’t be reading it at work… Also, I am SO glad someone else noticed the Chris head bobble. It is out of control!!! And Jef is growing on me like crazy! I’m not even sure if I’m rooting for him or Arie anymore…

    Comment by Rachel — June 28, 2012 @ 12:43 pm

  5. I gutlaughed through the whole thing!! Thanks again Ashley!!

    LOL!! ——–> “Now that Emily sent Doug home, she has to have an awkward 2-on-1 with the jean-jammer and crazy baby eagle face.”

  6. Why does Sean always chew on Emily’s upper lip when he kisses her?

    Comment by john — June 28, 2012 @ 12:44 pm

  7. And LOL!!!

    On a lighter note, I think Doug’s ugly cry would totally marry my ugly cry and make the ugliest, crying babies.

    So damn funny!

  8. I like to think Jef gets dirty in the bedroom…

  9. I’ve been waiting for this all week!!! Jef FTW!

    Comment by Lauren — June 28, 2012 @ 12:49 pm

  10. That was a well written and picturated blog-keep it up, I totally agree with everything you said in it. I also love Arie with Emily so bad that if he isn’t chosen, I’ll be heart broken. Think Jef is ok but I don’t like that high school relationship he has with Emily. Sean leave with his parents and doesn’t clean his room so he is a no no.

    Comment by Akesha — June 28, 2012 @ 12:49 pm

  11. Ashley, I laughed so hard reading your blog! I’m totally loving Jef and Arie. I know Sean and Emily have great chemistry but I feel like they are missing something…maybe the playful side?

    Comment by Lydia — June 28, 2012 @ 12:50 pm

  12. I love the way you describe the episodes. My favorite today was “he tried to eat her face (too soon?)” HAHAHAHAH. No, not too soon. When a naked man eats 75% of a homeless man’s face off on the side of a highway and then is shot dead by the cops, there is no where else to go but in the gutter and make jokes about it. I wish you much success in your blogging career.

    Comment by Angie — June 28, 2012 @ 12:51 pm

  13. Just don’t see it with her and Jeff. More like very close friends or younger brother. Arie is lust, not love, which isn’t enough to keep a relationship going on a long term basis…. so I still go with Sean as best all around for her. Could be wrong, but that’s how I see it.

    Comment by Pat — June 28, 2012 @ 12:56 pm

  14. You are HILARIOUS!!!! Yes, it was blown out of proportion but I’m glad they ended it quickly. I can’t stand Crazy Chris anymore. Glad Doug went home. Wolfie seems like a great guy, but totally boring with Emily. I love Sean. She seemed really excited that he tracked her down. I go back and forth between Arie and Jef. I’d love to hang out with Jef. He seems super cool.

    Comment by Tracey — June 28, 2012 @ 12:57 pm

  15. Ha well emily sure doesnt think of jef as a little brother now does she

    Comment by Jb — June 28, 2012 @ 12:58 pm

  16. I am with you on the Jef quote. I am not sure why I love it so much, but I would make it my ring tone if I could.

    Comment by Jackie — June 28, 2012 @ 1:02 pm

  17. yes… Jef DOES steal my heart a bit more each week- it makes me weak in the stomach (in a butterfly-way) just watching Jef & Em each episode.

    Ashley, you totally gave me a stomach work-out as I cracked up when I scrolled to the Chris Harrison photo, then read this caption: Dude, Do we need to call your mommy? -> I could totally see Chris saying this, as I looked at his facial expression.

    You are so good at noticing body language that I am starting to pick up on some too:
    - Emily’s eyes get all squinty-nice when she really doesn’t know HoW to react to what she is hearing (I’m a southerner too, and know this from watching my mother. When she was not quite sure how to react, but wasn’t pleased, she’d do this… I wonder if I do too???)(hate to tell you this but she did this when Arie professed his love)
    -Emily makes her lips really thin when she’s ‘biting her tongue’. She’s too polite to interrupt. She did this when Kalon was talking to her (every time!) and when Chris asked to talk to her at the rose ceremony.
    -You already picked up on the fact that Emily has ‘real Emily laughs’ around Jef (loved your insider thoughts on her laugh)… a good sign-> I’m hoping!

    I recently saw The Addams Family musical in Denver (really fun) and the Prague rose ceremony room totally reminded me of the stage design (NOT romantic, but a bit cryptic)

    I HATE to wait for your blog, Ashley, but it’s always a good one! I’m sure the photos & captions are quite time consuming, but they are so funny! Thanks for the entertainment.

    Comment by Janet — June 28, 2012 @ 1:04 pm

  18. I think Seans a great guy but seems (or the producers edit him to seem) too vanilla. Also–have you noticed that when people root for Sean it’s always because “jef isnt this and arie isnt that”? No one should choose a husband through process of elimination. I’d rather pull a Brad Womack 1.0!

    Comment by Karen — June 28, 2012 @ 1:13 pm

  19. Great Blogg as always!! Team ARIE!ARIE!ARIE. I think Emily and him are a great match.

    If Emily picks Jef, I hope there are not plural wives. Mormons are secretive. Is anyone scared to see if Jef has an “extra large family?” at the hometown.

    What was Doug thinking?? did he forget you could be sent home?

    Sean- handsome, maybe a future Bachelor.

    John “Wolfe”, Cute guy, but I had a hard time remembering his name.

    Comment by Mariah — June 28, 2012 @ 1:13 pm

  20. I also like Sean, because he’s not a “kiss and tell” date! Jef has said that he and Arie told each other everything about their dates with Emily, while remaining best friends in the house. Am I the only person who thinks it’s weird that two people can date the same girl, supposedly love the same girl, live together and discuss every detail about the dates and then say it doesn’t bother them? This tells me their relationships with Emily aren’t serious. Sorry!!

    Comment by Pat — June 28, 2012 @ 1:21 pm

  21. Definitely and thank goodness Emily only sees Jef as someone she’s crazy about and has adored since she’s met him – as the rest of us. There is something just so magical about their connection and love story. I completely root for Jem and will be sad for her if she doesn’t have the wisdom to pick him. He, however, will make out like a bandit after this and will not have any problems finding women who adore him after this.

    Comment by TeamJef — June 28, 2012 @ 1:22 pm

  22. Well as to the Cassie/Arie thing…if anyone reads Reality Steve, you will know that Arie has kept in touch with Cassie and she assured him that if he signed up for the show, she’d make sure he was in the finals. He was also told never to let Emily in on the fact that they knew each other cause the producers/Fleiss knew they’d use the drama for effect and of course ratings. Arie was told…the producers would advise Emily when the time was right. So basically Emily got played big time by all involved, which is why Arie will be a gonner. Cassie is an employee of Fleiss…the sleeze master…so not buying she is a nice person. Oh and Lord is she not attractive!

    As to Jef…he is kind, sensitive, intelligent, witty, warm, caring and beyond cool. He just has a vibe that tells me he is very well put together and someone who would be a perfect husband and father. He is so polite with her and considers her every need. He is supposed to make his Hometown date the most romantic of the 4. Jef makes her laugh and seeing their future together with the questions and answers has never been done to such perfection by any bachelor/ette.

    So glad he is in final 3 and hope the final 1 gets out soon…and I know which blogger will have it if he gets his already received info confirmed. Won’t spill it till he is absolutely certain that the info he has is correct. I love knowing the final one well in advance!

    Comment by Sunnyside422 — June 28, 2012 @ 1:22 pm

  23. i noticed Arie’s neck-acne too. I called them neck boils though.

    Chris is horrifying. at least she has all those footage for evidence for a restraining order.

    Comment by kendra — June 28, 2012 @ 1:23 pm

  24. I know Emily had no chemistry with Wolfie but she should have kept him just so Chris doesnt have to go through a bottle of xanax for another week!! He is too intense and if she doesnt see him as the final one- she should have let him go and at least taken John home for a more relaxed date. or given both the boot- Chris is CRAzy!

    Comment by Sarah — June 28, 2012 @ 1:23 pm

  25. Hilarious blog as usual Ashley! I totally cracked up on the “Thanks for teaching me your wall move dude”!
    I changed my mind. I think it’s game over, Jef for the win.
    Is it Monday yet? So looking forward to the HTD episode!

    Comment by Nance — June 28, 2012 @ 1:27 pm

  26. Funny stuff:) But you’re going to have to eat your words because she’s choosing Jef. Sorry Arie! Jef is the man. I can’t believe you can’t see it? She is LOVE with Jef…laughing, being herself and the way they look at each other. Ooh la la!

    Comment by sal — June 28, 2012 @ 1:30 pm

  27. Still wondering why Emily didnt just ask Arie about Cassie when he encouraged to talk to him if anything was bothering her. I hope Em doesn’t end up sabotaging her relationship with Arie just because Jef may be a safer choice. I still dont see the chemistry and deep emotional ties with Jef that she has with Arie altho Jef seems a nice enough guy. I dont think what she has with Arie is just physical. We are getting the Bach edit with Arie the physical/passionate one and Jef the friend/sweet guy and Sean the seemingly stable/serious/mature one. JMO. #TeamArie! I just hope Em doesnt lead Arie on if her heart/head is really with Jef. Based on the previews of the Fantasy Date, she is still necking and kissing all 3 guys!!

  30. Soooo funny! Keep doing these I love your point of view. Favorite picture = Arie eating Emily’s face. HILARIOUS! Poor guy though…

    Comment by Alyssa — June 28, 2012 @ 1:41 pm

  31. It’s Jef or no one. He sees the whole package and includes Ricki in his thought process all the time. That speaks volumes.

    Comment by Tasha — June 28, 2012 @ 1:44 pm

  32. you are hysterical!

    Comment by Stephanie — June 28, 2012 @ 1:51 pm

  33. i really think the whole arie thing was sneeky, why did he never even mention when emily talked about her producer oh yeah i know here… thats just natural.. if he was asked not to say anything then he isnt really much of a man, he should have just said something then it wouldnt have been a huge issue. even if they do have passion i feel like that would fizzle out. i really dont see him as ready to be a dad AT ALL. Sean if my favourite, i dont see what you see when you say his kisses lack passion, i think if i was on camera i wouldnt want to act to horny ha!… he seems so down to earth and their conversations are real and natural and from seeing his posts on twitter he seems like the perfect fit for emily..and FUN whilst also being ready for a family.. i think its a shame if she lets him go, they could have a long lasting love :) and i like the pace hes moving not too slow but natural rather than rushed for the purpose of the show!

    Comment by Lucy — June 28, 2012 @ 1:52 pm

  34. Oh Doug, sweet Doug. That may have been one of the most awkward kisses I have seen. It’s all about timing, and Doug’s time to kiss her was that 1 on 1! I think Emily was attracted to him and would have liked to kiss him, and she just got real frustrated. I empathize with her! I hope he brushes off those ugly cry tears and makes some dang moves on a lady!

    I think Emily digs Arie and Jef the most, as you said, but don’t count Sean out just yet. That wall kiss was hot, certainly Arie level! I think the sweetest moments of the episode belong to Jef, though. The conversation between those two is so natural and that is so important in a relationship. I put my bucks on Jef! And that quote, no matter where he got it from, is sweet and hot all at once wrapped with a cute bow. :)

    Comment by Stephanie — June 28, 2012 @ 2:02 pm

  35. Love your blog! Jef is the one!

    Comment by Rovin — June 28, 2012 @ 2:04 pm

  36. Jef and Emily have love and chemistry. Arie is Mr. Smooth Moves, she will not be fooled. Jef is the only one Emily is talking future life with, post show. Game over, Arie is a big smokescreen, like Bentley to Ash, but Bent left earlier. Arie is not the guy for Emily. Watch, you’ll see in the end who she is with and very happy. Fleiss said Jef/Emily HomeTown Date is the most romantic in show history.

    Comment by Megs — June 28, 2012 @ 2:12 pm

  37. I LOVE your blog. Fav pic: Em and Arie cuddling “Remember the whole producer thing?” “Yeah lets never fight again”


    Comment by Leah — June 28, 2012 @ 2:15 pm

  38. TEAM ARIE!ARIE!ARIE!ARIE!ARIE, it’s clearly obvious Arie is the one for Emily. He was the first to tell her he loved her, the first to give her a “wall kiss” she’ll never forget, and he makes Emily smile like a woman in love.

    Comment by Heather — June 28, 2012 @ 2:20 pm

  39. As far as I’m concerned, just like in Ashley’s stint, it was all over the moment Jef stepped off the skateboard and looked at Emily. Their eyes are just magnetic towards each other, and there is a photo where Emily and Jef are sitting outside and she turns and gives him the exact same look that Ashley gave JP on the very first night. Also, when Em and Jef are outside by the wharf, twice she leans her head into Jef’s shoulder. If these two aren’t totally gaga over each other, they are the best actors on the planet. Go jef!

    Comment by Bonnie Barto — June 28, 2012 @ 2:20 pm

  40. hahaha you make my day love you Ashly. Emily and Arie ‘s chemistry is like a romance novel book.

    Comment by june — June 28, 2012 @ 2:26 pm

  41. @ Mariah — what an offensive and ignorant comment! The Mormons I know are friendly and seem very happy, not at all secretive. Polygamy is not part of their faith, and hasn’t been for over a century, despite what you see on TV. I look forward to seeing Jef’s family on the hometown date, which, as he described it, will include two sisters and two brothers. That’s hardly an “extra large family.” Do the internet a favor and please think before you type.

    Comment by RC — June 28, 2012 @ 2:38 pm

  42. Well worth the wait. I love the words you make up like awkwardsauce hahaha. I wish Jef would stop being so adorable cause he’s making me want to date him.

    Comment by Crystal — June 28, 2012 @ 2:40 pm

  43. Loved your blog. It is always so clever and lots of fun to read. I am definitely an Arie fan…just cannot overlook the chemistry. He seems very open and sincere to me plus they seem to really enjoy being together. Jef reminds me of a cute 16 year old. I know he makes her laugh but what woman wants a man that hides behind a puppet to express his feelings. Sean is a great guy but a bit too serious.

    Comment by JoJo — June 28, 2012 @ 2:47 pm

  44. Thanks for finally posting. Today is the fifth time I’ve checked for your blog. You are just too amusing Ashley. I bet you keep your boyfriend in stiches. I have a feeling that Emily is in love with Arie and Jef and is going to have one heck of a time trying to figure it out.
    Again Ashley, thanks so much for your blog. I’m already looking forward to reading it next week.

  46. It’s real simple. There is only one man that is totally and completely ready to settle down and become a father and husband to Emily and Ricki… Arie! Both Arie and Emily have endured a past relationship (involving children) that ended in true heartbreak. I could care less what ABC, magazine tabloids, bloggers, spoilers, producers, or what anyone else says, writes, or edits to make it appear otherwise. Arie is the best fit for her. Period. If they choose each other – Emily, Arie, Ricki, and their future children deserve nothing but every blessing and the very best!

  54. Great Blog as usually! I don’t usually chime in (just read and laugh) but when you mentioned you hated to miss the 3 way conversation between Arie, Cassie and Em because you just love to watch awkward moments on TV, I thought I would tell you to check out a show Miss Advised…on the last episode…talk about awkward dating! If we are keeping score I am Team Jef all the way! If he doesn’t get picked I hope they consider him for the next bachelor…well him or Roberto!

    Comment by Barb- B — June 28, 2012 @ 4:19 pm

  55. @ RC, THANK YOU! Mariah’s comment is so ignorant and rude. People who make comments about things that they don’t understand just make fools of themselves on the internet, which is what she has done twice now in these comments. @ Mariah, please do yourself a favor by not claiming that you are well aware about the faith when you so clearly only educate yourself about it from people with poor opinions of it. Learn from the source, or your facts will not be correct. I am sorry that you are so misinformed, that makes me sad.

    anyway, Ashley, LOVE your blog. I have checked for it since monday night, you are hilarious! :) I can’t choose between Arie, Jef and Sean! They’re all great! I think I want Jef for myself though :)

  58. I like Jef but i personally feel he still has alot of growing up to do, and its really getting irritating how she keeps fighting for his attention and Jef loving it!Their chemistry feels more of high school crush to me, am Team Arie all the way cause i trully believe he loves her, with all thats been written about him guys like Arie they probably play around but once they fall for a girl they fall helplessly and i hope Emily gives their relationship a chance, thats why you have the engagement to use that time to learn more about eachother. Guys like Arie make the best husbands cause they ve seen it all! Emily take a chance girl.

    Did you get Emily mixed up with Ryan when talking about Emily loving to kiss Emily alot?

    As usual, you cracked me up. Sean and Arie bonding over the slam Emily against the wall move. ROFL!!! I wouldn’t mind either one of them . . . oh never mind. If only I was younger.

    If she doesn’t choose Arie, I would love to see him as the next Bachelor (if they are doing retreads).

  61. LOVE your blog!!! You always make me laugh and I truly enjoy reading it every week. I’m stuck between Jef and Sean. I love them both!!! Just dont want her to pick Arie… Yes he’s hot and makes her swoon blah blah blah. He just seems too unpredictable and unrealiable. She shouldn’t pick him, he’s temporary not long term material.

    Comment by Mary — June 28, 2012 @ 5:04 pm

  62. What disappoints me most is when previous contestants make comments that they know are most likely inaccurate.You can not judge every kiss!!! If Emily and Sean had a really passionate kiss against the wall, you know this continued throughout the show. The producers have just chosen not to show it to keep speculation up.

    Right now they want us to believe it is Arie. They are building to change it to Jef, and they will end when it is actually Sean..

    Why oh why do people (especially former contestants) not realize we are only shown what they want us to see……

    Comment by tj — June 28, 2012 @ 5:09 pm

  63. I love your blog! Very funny and entertaining, also great insight. Chris was acting like a toddler. What did he think the other guys are doing with Emily….

    Seriously, I don’t even remember his “big” date with Emily. Arie’s kisses, Jef’s style and Sean’s All American looks have pretty much helped me forget anything about Chris. Good thing his hometown date is first. She can get that out the way then go see her men.

  65. I love your blog, but you are obsessed with Arie. I just don’t think he’s that great. There’s no doubt a strong physical attraction between them, but Jef and Sean will be so much better in terms of the emotional connection and fitting into her family life.

    Comment by Phoebe — June 28, 2012 @ 5:55 pm

  66. Am I the only one that doesn’t really see it with Sean? I feel like she’s really attracted to him and likes all his qualities, but I just don’t see it. With Arie, I feel like she’s only physically attracted to him and that’s going to go away soon. All they ever do is kiss! At least that’s all they’re showing. Maybe we’re not seeing their talks about their future together, but I’m just basing it off what they’re showing and it’s only physical attraction! JEF! My pick:) Not only is he adorable, but he has a way with words! He has this confidence about him that is very endearing. (unlike ryan) He’s so well-spoken and it seems like he’s being sincere. And the way he made Emily laugh this past episode… how can you not love him for that? He just seems so funny. And I feel like he’d get along with Ricki very well. Yes, he looks a bit young, but he’s adorable :) Team Jef all the way! I couldn’t possibly see her with anyone else.

  68. Yeah Team Arie. I am so happy that you see the obvious. Arie and her are so freaken hot together. The people who say it is all lust are nuts. She is a 26 yearl old girl and of course she is hot for him. Let me see—hot kisses with Arie or playing puppets with a guy who can’t even say he loves me to my face. And anyone who thins it’s Sean is crazy. It is episode 7 and she took him on one one on one date. If you are interested in a person you want to be with them as much as you can. That is why Arie got the first date. She kisses Sean without moving her head at all. And I don’t think it is passionate kisses at all. And Jef looks to young next to her. So yes it is TEAM ARIE.

    Chris the baby needs to get sent home asap! He’s too… bobble-headed for Emily!
    If I were Emily I honestly don’t know how I’d choose between Sean, Arie and Jef at this point. This is about to get interesting!

    Comment by Jenn — June 28, 2012 @ 7:16 pm

  70. First off, love the blog!!! As usual!

    Clearly, this has been an Emily takes on Arie, Jef, and Sean show since pretty close to the start. Leaning slightly towards Arie and Jef….

    Let’s quickly analyze the three teams: Emarie, Jemily, and… Shmemily? (That one just doesn’t go.. foreshadow?)

    Team Sean’s (someone come up with a good name for that one) clearly captivates all the moms, middle aged women, and anyone looking for a good piece of cougar meat.

    Team Jemily is comprised mostly of those of us that get giddy easily, love a good mushy love story, and probably many of the teeny boppers out there.

    Team Emarie, or shall I say team sexpot (JK..not really), is clearly anyone who has read 50 shades of Grey this summer, may or may not be possibly sexually frustrated and live through the steamy-ness of Emarie moments, and any of us that just want a sexy passionate man to jump our bones… or pin us up against a wall.

    ALL that being said……………… I’m still team Emarie in some aspects and team Jemily in others. What are you???

    Comment by Aubrey — June 28, 2012 @ 7:22 pm

  71. ARIE ARIE ARIE all the way to the end. The man like him will be a good husband and dad. If Emily not pick him she make big mistake. OMG hope they are together now.

  73. lMFAO!!!!! Is Chris’ head going to bobble off and explode??!!! Sooooo frickenhp hilarious. How ironic that he brought her bobble heads the first night and he is a giant real life version!!!

    Comment by Vanessa — June 28, 2012 @ 8:35 pm

  74. Love your blog!! You have such a clever wit!

    I’m hoping for the ultimate love story….meaning Arie. The way this is being shown is that they are attached already. We all saw it from the first date, the instant connection. I feel as if jef is just to far off in left field for her. He needs a skater girl. I also seriously question his relationship with Michele money and her brother. It all feels like “a favor” to keep him on.

    Sean is great, but I feel not for her. She seems into Arie.

    And, if it’s not Arie, why show his reaction to things all the time? Why bring up the Cassie situation? Why are we not hearing emily and jef talking about Michele and her brother? If it’s not Arie, why Woukd they throw Emily under the bus and make him look pathetic in comparison to Arie? That would be really hard for any man to watch, he would have to feel really inferior after weeks of that.

    I’m hoping it’s all a well done and protected ending to put that reality Steve idiot under. He keeps saying it’s not Arie, but that’s all he knows. Wouldn’t that totally discredit him if it was? That alone would be awesome!! Killing two birds with one stone. An awesome season with a tall dark handsome man sweeping the beautiful Emily off her feet and making a fool of reality Steve. If it’s jef, it’s anti climatic. A couple who seem friendly, but hardly having any obvious connection beyond him bringing up her daughter. Pretty much as if he has nothing else to say!

    Chris, wow! Maybe she should have let that bobble head go. What a hot head.

    Sean, great guy, kinda falling off the radar for me. Not enough screen time to be invested.

    Overall, it’s nice to see the contestants getting along. Far far more fun then that freaky season with Ben. I will feel so let down if it’s not Arie, as it’s almost as if he was the co-star with her and the rest were bit players.

    Great blog!

    Comment by Lyn — June 28, 2012 @ 8:54 pm

  75. Love your blog! Your captions are hysterical. #TeamArie FTW! I can totally see the passion between Emily and Arie that’s totally different from all the rest! And that’s why all these spoilers saying Jef will win drives me crazy! If she ends up with Jef, how can he get past the passion she has with Arie who is his friend? I remember Emily being upset during Brad’s AFTR that she felt dime-a-dozen because she felt he was the same to all the girls. That nothing special was left for her. Given that, I don’t think Emily will do the same thing which is show too much passion on someone and then pick someone else.

    Comment by Kathy — June 28, 2012 @ 11:38 pm

  80. I do think the Arie-Cassie deal IS in fact an issue but not so much because they dated but rather because it makes one wonder if he has other ambitions for being on the show… He seems like a player and the ill-timed “I love you” kinda reinforces that…would have been better to make that confession on another date…

    Comment by Paula — June 29, 2012 @ 1:20 am

  81. Finally Ashley! Always looking forward to your blog!

    The attraction between Emily and Аrie is off the chain. Wow! I think she fellin love with him early on and that is especially why she gives him such a hard time.
    The Cassie relationship was just to add drama, and yes he was probably asked to keep it a secret and that’s why they had that private discussion later. Drama in the show is always neccessary. As good looking as Arie is it’s just something about him that I’m sceptical about that I can’t quite express.

    Sean is so attractive, well trained, strong , hot. And she is super attracted to him too. But he might be a little too perfect for her? He’s just so fantastic, that sorry,something about that is boring.

    I like her and Jef more and more for every time I watch them. I think I might have cried a little too when they had the puppet show (cheezy I know), but something about it was so sweet.
    I don’t know much about his faith and how his familyfeel about tv shows and I’m certain we’re not going to see his parents, which is a bad sign. If Emily can’t meet his parents and see if they will all get along and like her, choosing Jef will be a big risk.
    Also Jef doesn’t have that tall, fit body as Arie and Sean do, so I think he and Emily lack a little in that hotness/physical chemistry department, I can’t see her choosing him.

    John needed to go home. But I’m pretty sure she knows her top 3 by now. I’m still a bit unsure about who will be in the finale with Arie though. My guess is that Arie wins since she seems comletely in love with him.

    Comment by SJ — June 29, 2012 @ 3:21 am

  82. Also, you never want to hear from the one you are potentially going to marry that he chooses his family over you, or possibly dump you if they don’t like you for whatever reasons. Loyality is great and all, but everybody wants the one they love to have their back at all times.
    So that was not an attractive quality Jef.

    Comment by SJ — June 29, 2012 @ 3:25 am

    Comment by Becca — June 29, 2012 @ 5:06 am

  84. God I hate puppets, but somehow Jef made it seem sexy. Sometimes Emily seems like she’s giving Arie the pity-face: watch for it! When she looks at Jef she looks way more predatory – I can’t wait for the overnight date for those two!!

  86. @lizzie- I’m sure you can get Doug’s info if you are
    Into abusive hot headed mean. I think he may like to fire
    Guns and throw women against the wall(not like arie and Jef), but
    rather in an abusive way. Not sure anyone wants to be on his bad side!

  89. I bet the ex-girlfriend’s name tattoo is on Arie’s chest – over his heart – and that’s why we never get to see him shirtless.

    Comment by Sara — June 29, 2012 @ 7:50 am

  90. There will be no traditional overnight dates as in previous seasons. Emily put forth some major conditions in agreeing to be Bachelorette and that was one of them. Might see them spend time together but not sleeping together.

    I love Reality Steve and his blogs are as funny as Ashley’s. His Ryan and Travis dates when both were eliminated were classic. I love to laugh…it’s good for the soul and that is why I favor Jef. He is the first and probably the last genuine Bachelor…well maybe Roberto was also and is now signed, sealed and will deliver as the new Bachelor.

    I just don’t see Sean as so attractive. Look at his hair…pretty thin up there! And Arie and his pimples…oh gosh…he is 30 and still gets pimples! Nah, not doing it for me. Jef is special.

    Don’t assume people don’t know or understand Mormon faith or plural marriages. It’s still very common today, there have been many documentaries on it and even a reality show called “Sister Wives.”

    Comment by Mariah — June 29, 2012 @ 10:52 am

  93. Your blog is by far the funniest one out there… I think that Arie is toooo much like Ricky, Sean is toooo much like Brad so she will pick Jef for a lasting love…. They will make the cutiest family!

  95. @Mariah Don’t assume you know or understand the Mormon faith, if you did you would know that they haven’t practiced polygamy for quite a few years. Maybe do a little research before you comment and make yourself look like an idiot. I don’t judge you for who you are and what you believe, so please don’t judge others.

    Comment by Stephanie — June 29, 2012 @ 7:21 pm

  96. You are very funny but you’re also rude to people on twitter and it’s so not cool! TEAM SEAN. Jeff is way too young and immature and Arie is a player for a lot of reasons. We’ll all find out soon enough. :)

    Comment by Renee — June 29, 2012 @ 7:32 pm

  97. I think Doug could be a match with the bachelorette from Ben’s season who gave him kissing instructions. Wolfie could hook up with Ben’s second choice-the one who was sent to Dumpsville via text message. Perfect!!

    Arie keeps his shirt on b/c he’s scared to show us WHAT he covered the tat with-long ex’s name perhaps required the entire muppet family!

    Your recaps are the best!!!

    Comment by cheryl74 — June 29, 2012 @ 10:02 pm

  98. I dont think that Emily is falling in love with Arie. I think Arie is falling in love with her. I think she likes to kiss Arie the most simply because he is the best kisser there so she enjoys his skills not because she’s in love. She really likes him alot and is probably the most comfortable with him since they got close early on but I think she feels more naturally drawn to Jef. I even think she is starting to feel more for Sean after this last epiosde. Her eyes when he found her said it all to me. Arie has been edited to be the front runner but im starting to see that he’s really not. I say he’s coming in 3rd for her heart. Arie is so liked by most people watching and maybe he is who they would pick so thats partially why they are kinda exaggerating his connection with her. I dont think she returns his feelings to the extent that he feels for her.

    Comment by Jessica — June 30, 2012 @ 7:32 am

  99. Emily is falling love with Arie clearly. You got to be blind to not see it. If they didn’t end up together something terrible happened. or may be too many red flags from him and Emily is too insecure to go with her heart. Emily is used to be the one in control of the situation or a relationship so she will not venture out of her control position/comfort zone. Team Jef people are trying to see things differently but doesn’t matter. It has been Arie from the get -go.

    Sean is a nice guy but he and Emily have no passion and no chemistry. I suspect his kiss against the wall was encouraged by producers to look for Emily and to give her real kisses. Without that encouragement he’s back to his close-mouth kisses.

    There is no way Emily starts having stronger feelings for Jef or Sean from this point on. It is too late. It’s not just 4 or 8 days into filming like Ashley was with William and Bentley when she had time to develop feelings for Ben and JP.

    Arie has been the one from the beginning. Emily may have been wise to stay open but there ‘s no denying her feelings for Arie are the strongest.

  101. Um, I saw the preview and Jef has A LOT of siblings! Are Mormons against the use of protection? And touching in public? Some times having different religions create a lot of trouble for a couple.
    Rumors have it that Katie Holmes just divorced Tom Cruise of that reason.

    Comment by SJ — June 30, 2012 @ 9:37 am

  102. ASHLEY, GREAT BLOG!!! It;s the funniest part of each week and you make me laugh so hard!

    I am Mormon and wanted people to understand WE DO NOT HAVE PLURAL MARRIAGE!!

    As for the “Sister Wives” example, if you actually watch it, they emphatically inform people that they are NOT affiliated with the Mormon church. They belong to a split religion called Reformed Latter-Day Saints.

    Mainstream Mormons are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

    Why is nobody talking about Sean who “could step into any role.” Are Emily and Ricki going to move into his parent’s house also?? Go team Jef!!!

  104. @sunnyside422 “I just don’t see Sean as so attractive. Look at his hair…pretty thin up there!” What a very small and shallow comment to make – people should be judged by who they are not only by how thick their hair is!

    Comment by Never responded before — June 30, 2012 @ 12:15 pm

  105. @sunnyside422 you are very rude and you must be a very unhappy person. I saw you rip Ashley’s looks last year on RS’s blog mercilessly. I saw you make horrible comments about little Ricki too and i noticed that. And now you move on to the guys. You can always find something wrong with people. Luckily Emily looks perfect so you started to pick on her sweet demeanor which you said is fake. And now Sean? Really? I am Team Nobody. I am Team Whoever She Chooses It Is Her Choice. What a sad life you have! Where is your Sunny Side???

    Comment by Sunnyside422 is rude — June 30, 2012 @ 2:30 pm

  106. @Sunnyside422 – I have never commented on any blog before so don’t make your nasty remarks to me, I am not rude nor do I make horrible comments about little Ricki or anyone else – I was merely saying people should not be judged by something like how thick their hair is as to whether they are an attractive person or not. Try going through Chemo and loosing all your hair and then tell me how rude and unhappy I am. At least I try to see the beauty inside as well as outside of a person.

    Comment by Never responded before — June 30, 2012 @ 9:15 pm

  107. @Sunnyside422 – I just reread your comment and you accused me of picking on Sean – that comment about Sean was copied from your post – your words not mine so I think you need to cool your burners whoever you are. It appears from your remarks that someone else is using this comment name so why does it let more than one person use the same name? Did not know sites allowed that. By the way I did not even know who RS was last year and just came upon it by accident this bachorlette season.

  109. First off, I have to say that this blog is great as usual Ashley! You’re so good at these! Second, those of you who say Ashley is rude and condescending on twitter, I have no idea what you’re talking about. I guess you don’t have the same sense of humor as her. Much of what she says isn’t serious. I’ve tweeted with Ashley several times and she has been NOTHING but nice to me. I was feeling really low at one point and she made me feel so much better. My guess is that you just hate her and just leave comments to be mean. It’d be nice if you didn’t, but you’ll probably keep doing it. It’s too bad you haven’t really spoken with Ashley like I have because then you would know that she is one of the nicest people. Oh, and btw I am Team Jemily.

  110. Like your blog Ashley always good for a few laughs – do you really think Sean doesn’t have a chance? I hope he is the final one.

  111. @Mariah and @Rachael – Mormons do not have plural marriages, if we are Mormon, don’t you think we would know and understand the faith better than anybody!? Don’t argue with someone who has spent their whole life practicing something that you think you understand because you watch a tv show! You sound very ignorant. It makes me sad how many uneducated people there are about the faith. If you want to learn the true facts, go straight to the source,, not Sister Wives! Not one person in my entire church nationwide has a plural marriage, if they do, they are not Mormon, they are what Stephanie said, the reformed lds, which is NOT affiliated with the true Mormon church. I hope that you will take some time to educate yourself before you respond next time.

  112. I would challenge you both and anyone else who is curious, to attend a Mormon church meeting and see for yourselves just exactly what kind of people we are, you will be surprised to learn that we are just normal people with high standards and values. You are also more than welcome to talk to a bishop or church leader, they would be more than happy to answer your questions and set you straight about the plural marriage issue.

  113. @ Lizzie Good catch. That is EXACTLY how Onetwotreetree writes on the board, The Drunk Troll. She is PSYCHO.

    Nice blog, Ashley! Yours is as usual, the funniest.

  114. Y’all! Stop fighting about Mormons! A Bachelorette blog is not the place for this type of religious discussion. Respect people’s religious beliefs and let’s focus on the issue at hand please. Dang!
