David Good’s Bachelorette Blog: Episode 6

Off we go to Croatia.  Of course they are going to Croatia.  Lol.   The only thing I know about Croatia is one of my favorite MMA fighters Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic is from there.  It looks beautiful and is in a cool location snuggled in the middle of everything.

The first one-on-one date is with Travis.  I really like Travis.  He seems like a normal guy, which is kind of refreshing.  Just a super normal guy.  He kind of talks with a little too much enthusiasm in his voice when “agreeing” with Emily about everything she says but it’s probably because he is a little nervous.  I don’t see any chemistry between them AT ALL but he seems like a good dude.

Nice to see Emily has her voice back.

Travis says he has not been with a girl in 2 years, and says it in a way that makes me think he has not hooked up with a girl in 2 years!  That is a looooong time!  That is a little odd if that is true.  I don’t think you have to go hump everything that moves but a guy that has been to the promised land should visit it more than every two years!  If they make it to the fantasy suite I hope Emily has a duster with her.  LOLOLOL

AWWW… Looks like he is going to have to wait longer because at dinner Emily says those two words none of them want to here, “I’m sorry” and he knows he is going home.  She did not even seem upset about it.  There really was just nothing there between them.  At least she won’t have to buy any pledge now.

The group date is the worst date in #Bachelor or #Bachelorette History!!! A movie date?! Are you serious? “Hey we never get to see each other or talk and we have a few weeks to get to know each other with a chance we get married so lets go sit in the dark and not talk…” Brilliant!

The group date ends up being awesome because Emily tells them they are going to compete in a series of obstacles called the Highland games.  Log throws, bow and arrow shooting and a tug of war thingy that is actually fun to watch.


Chris ends up getting last in the games but gets the sympathy Rose on the date because he got dead last. I’m glad Chris got the sympathy “bravery” cup on the date for getting dead last.  It shows that big muscles and competitiveness don’t mean much, which is refreshing.  THANK GOD!  I can finally stop competing, working out, and lose at everything and still get the girl!  #winning

I wish Ryan had been in these games so that we could have seen the big boys compete with each other.

HOWEVER BACK IN THE HOUSE Ryan is enjoying the time by himself because he would rather spend the time with himself than anyone else.  He then says, “I love the other guys but they don’t possess all the qualities I do. Playing pro football I have certain gifts. I wake up every day, look in the mirror and say Ryan you are a god with 12 inch scarves and awesome white XS tank tops. Who do you want to be today and my reflection actually answers me and says, you are a beautiful man Ryan and can get any girl…” End Ryan’s talk with his own reflection in the mirror.

I am laughing so hard right now.  I had to pause the show.  Ryan is hysterical in his cockiness.  It’s like unbelievable. Hahahaha.

Jef and Emily sit down and spend some one-on-one time together and he is finally opening up to her and you can actually see a connection between them now.

It’s finally time for Ryan’s one-on-one date.  I feel like Ryan is a good guy but his cockiness makes it easy to dislike him.  I am not sure if it is an act or if that is the way he really is.  I hope he learns a lot about himself by watching himself on TV.  I hope watching himself he learns a lot about the way he sounds.  I know I did when I was on the Bachelorette.  It really changed my life.

Most people never get the to see how they really sound and talk to other people.  Most people never have a camera on them 24 hours a day for 30-40 days that can pick and choose whatever moments it wants to show of you.  It is a real eye opener for a lot of people that are on the show.

Anyway the date had a weird vibe to it.  Emily ends up not giving him a rose.  Ryan said some really good things on his way out though.  He seemed very serious and endearing in his comments about her making the wrong choice and Emily seems very confused in her decision.  I think she did make the right one though personally.

The guys back in the house are pretty happy to see him go and are literally hugging each other and jumping up and down in celebration.  Hahahaha.  It makes it so funny because Ryan says, “I wonder how the guys will take it because I made some great friends in the house.”

Remember on Ace Ventura when Ace leaves all the Monks and thinks they are gonna be sad but then they are doing back flips, drinking, jumping around and celebrating as he is walking out. Hahahah. That reminds me of what happened when Ryan left. LOL

Later on Arie sneaks into Emily’s room after hours for a little extra time together.   They seem great together.   I really like him and Sean for her at this point.  Chris has fallen back down behind these two on my list currently.

Emily looks extra gorgeous in her dress tonight at the Rose Ceremony.  I am pretty sure it is made of moon dust and diamonds.  Probably really cheap.

At the rose ceremony Emily leaves and asked Chris for an extra rose and ends up sending nobody home.

That’s all folks!  Until next week you all have a good one!


  1. I love the other guys but they don’t possess all the qualities I do. Playing pro football I have certain gifts. I wake up every day, look in the mirror and say Ryan you are a god with 12 inch scarves and awesome white XS tank tops. Who do you want to be today and my reflection actually answers me and says, you are a beautiful man Ryan, EVEN WITH THE FANGS THAT YOU CARVED IN YOUR BEARD YOU MUST BE CONFIDENT THAT YOU ARE A GREAT CATCH AND A GOD’S GIFT TO THE WORLD AND YOU can get any girl TO KISS THE UGLIEST SHOES ON THE PLANET EARTH AND MARRY YOU TO BE YOUR PERMANENT MAID FOR FREE…” End Ryan’s talk with his own reflection in the mirror.

  2. What can’t you have on older contestant? Like 55yrs old and maybe the rating will be even higher.

  3. That is a very interesting comment you make, perhaps the most interesting one I have ever read in relation to this show. I have no idea how I sound or look to other people. Thanks for making me think about that, I can imagine anyone of us watching ourselves on tv would be an enlightening experience (and perhaps horrifying :) ))

  4. Ryan probably doesn’t realize how he sounds. Maybe he has regrets and will adjust accordingly.

    I saw myself one time captured on video. It was definitely a rude awakening. I agree with you that everyone should have that experience. It is very very scary!!!!

  8. Dave, thanks for your insights into Ryan, and why he has such a big ego growing up in competitive sports. I would have never figured that out on my own. I really enjoyed his stint on the Bachelorette, and his connection with Emily had some real moments (when she turned to him for comfort after Kalon left). Emily made the right decision because he was distracting her from finding a true partner, but I’ll miss his entertaining comments. Love the Ace Ventura image for his departure!

  9. Great Blog, but sorry you didn’t like the group date in Croatia, it was so original. The movie was cute and a great way to setup the date. What I like about this show is the dates are so original and romantic…that’s the kind of experience i’d want to have traveling the world on ABC’s money wouldn’t you?

    TEAM ARIE and TEAM SEAN….either one is good but i think Emily is into ARIE the most up to now.

  10. Great season!! Emily is a breath of fresh air. She has a good head on her shoulders, (nothin gets past her!), the dates are romantic, and she is so classy and sweet. She’s not an emotional train wreck like some past Bachelorette’s. I like that she started the season showing the guys what her life is like and now traveling to such amazing authentic places. Kinda what Ben did in his season.

  11. Keep your day job.

  12. p.s. Emily is a bore.

    Comment by Jerry Springer — June 21, 2012 @ 10:00 am

  13. p.p.s. And Emily has nothing to offer a young single guy but her baggage, bills and bullshit. PASS.

  14. Great blog as always!!

  15. Emily is an emotional train-wreck, though of a different kind than past Bach’ettes. The co-dependency between Emily and her daughter is already a problem, and will spin out of control with whatever man ends up displacing Ricki from Emily’s bed (or will Ricki just continue to sleep between Emily and her eventual husband)?

    The problem will not only be how Ricki feels, but how Emily feels when another person enters Ricki’s life, as was evidenced by the reply Emily made to One-F-Jef when he talked about having a brush/singing party with Ricki in Emily’s absence, and all Emily could reply is something about how she will be irrelevant. Plus she’s said she has no other talents/hobbies besides being a mom (which in itself is a red flag), and is bound to cause a problem when someone horns in on her only skill.

    Comment by Jennifer — June 21, 2012 @ 12:52 pm

  16. Wow Jennifer, you are judging Emily a bit harshly, aren’t you? I think the word “co-dependent” is carrying it too far. You’re talking about a single mom and her only daughter. Of course they will be close. That doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for a man.

    Personally, I think Emily is one of the best bachelorettes, if not THE best that ABC has ever had. She has a heart, she is smart and analytical when she makes her decisions, she has her priorities straight with caring about her family more than fame, and she gets rid of the guys who don’t deserve to get to the end over the nice guys. She truly seems to want to find love and a good dad to Ricki. I give Emily major props as the Bachelorette who handles herself with grace and kindness. She deserves a really great guy, which to me is either going to be Sean or Jef.

  17. And now we have an impostor Onetwotreetree who have no individuality…copied the name and copied the posts.

    Yup, Onetwotreetree up above is an impostor…You are not as hidden as you think you are IP’s reveal a lot.

    Comment by Onetwotreetree — June 23, 2012 @ 2:38 am

  18. Dave,
    Thanks for making me laugh out loud more than once (I don’t laugh out loud easily…)- it’s a wonderful thing to make someone laugh and let loose…
    Also, thanks for the insight. (I didn’t really like you that much on the Bachelorette. I know that there is editing and all, but hey- they can only use what you actually say). I appreciate the comments about how one appears and making adjustments – this show growth. I see this in your insight, so thanks for that.
    I like your blog. It has a nice balance of random thoughts while watching, laughs and silly quips, and insight.

  19. Ugh, is Onetwotreetree a snotty teenager or a bitter old housewife? Either way, she is one MENTALLY ILL TROLL

    Comment by Jolene — June 27, 2012 @ 11:44 pm

  20. @ Jolene. LOL Onetwotreetree is a joke. I can’t tell if she’s 12 or 45 either but she’s definitely seething at Emily with pure jealousy. Seriously I think she’s behind most of the negative comments. I feel sorry for Onetwotreetree!
