Bermuda, Bahamas, come on pretty Emily… we are to yet another chapter of Emily and ???’s love story! This week the boys got to pack their bags and start their international travel… first stop BERMUDA! Where it is “so cute and so beautiful,” some hearts will get broken this week; there is a 1-on-1 date, group date, and the dreaded 2-on-1 date! (CH will be so disappointed to not see everyone at the next rose ceremony!)

DOUG starts off with the 1-on-1 date: “Let our senses lead the way –Emily.” He immediately flips his crap and realizes he could only get to spend a few hours in Bermuda and doesn’t want to go home. REALLY?! What about your son? Emily? Ricki? I’m not getting a good vibe–he may blow this one! Bleep, Bleep, Bleep, Bleeeeeeeep… I’m really hoping he put on his clinical strength deodorant, he’s letting the guys get under his skin, which is just pure entertainment for us. I was getting uncomfortable with the Hulk that was showing himself. Quote of the date by Doug: “Are we going shopping? I love it!” (Or lie #1 of the date). So after a normal day of shopping and fun they sit down to dinner. I’m a little bored by this conversation… He can’t be perfect, she can’t be perfect, but they both think that each other’s faults are perfect. So after addressing her fears of his perfection she now has a “Doug with a rose.” Doug wants to kiss Emily, but Emily will let Doug know when she wants a kiss. Doug makes sure we all know his name by referring to himself in the 3rd person.

GROUP DATE: Chris, Jef, Ryan, Sean, Kalon, Charlie and Arie all head out to the high seas to compete for more time with Emily that evening.  Now as corny as this sounds, in this position, YOU HAVE TO WIN. Time is love on the Bachelorette. I am a little disappointed the CH was not here to announce that there is a competition today! It makes it much more serious when he’s there!  And they’re off, back and forth… Who’s gonna win? So intense! Yellow team wins! Red team takes the walk of shame home and Charlie cries. Poor buddy.  Arie definitely heats things up with Emily… Cats in the bag! They’re adorable! Jef makes a good move at this point and opens up… But I’m sending him a word of the day calendar to find a new word besides “like.” Emily is digging him, because like he got his like 2nd group date rose!! (I really do like Jef J)

TWO-on-ONE DATE: AKA “Who’s gonna be the third wheel? Date” dun dun dun… it’s John and Nate for the duel, or cliff diving… They jump off once and have had a “great day and so much fun!” To me, it didn’t look like they were having TOO much fun. I didn’t even hear a laugh. Oh well now we’re headed to the “dinner” part of the evening, IN A CAVE!! Couldn’t make this anymore awkward… every silent moment accentuated by a drip-drop of water. Thank goodness I DVRed… fast forward!! Nate gets sent home.

ROSE CEREMONY: Thunderstorms are brewing and so is drama! I really like Sean, he’s a sweetheart and genuine guy! J Doug gets into with Chris about age… and Emily seems to be shutting Ryan out, I don’t think they seem to communicate very well, the way he words things seems to offend her.

ELIMINATED: Michael (I think in his exit this is the most we’ve heard him talk… I’m sad for him) and Charlie

She’s knocking these guys out left and right… can’t wait for Monday! LIVE YOUR DASH!


  1. Since you’re so condescending, I don’t feel bad about saying your blog sounds like a bunch of “racing thoughts.”

    Comment by Mckenzie — June 8, 2012 @ 10:45 am

  2. Great blog!!! But what does “live your dash” mean?

    Comment by Holly — June 8, 2012 @ 10:47 am

  3. Haha, nice blog. Funny and to the point :)

    Comment by Leah — June 8, 2012 @ 11:44 am

  4. I am not going to be rude like McKenzie; however, we all have watched the episode and we can find recaps everywhere. What people who come to this website want, are the inside, more knowledgeable perspectives from former contenders. We want to know what you think based on what you had experienced on your season.

    McKenzie, see how you can ask for something different without being rude.

    I think you are a sweetheart, and hope you run into Tye Brown at the CMA’s. I think you guys would make a cute couple!!

  5. McKenzie, you’re an idiot, get a life.
    Kacie, you are so awesome. I love reading your blogs each week!!

    Comment by Heather — June 8, 2012 @ 12:42 pm

  6. I had to read the blog a couple times to get it, but once I understood it I thought it was a wonderful blog!! except the comments about Doug, and the “Live Your Dash” I can’t quite figure that out. Maybe it’s on google. Anyhoo, wonderful blog. Keep up the good work.

    Comment by Lori — June 8, 2012 @ 1:29 pm

  7. Holly asked a good question. I’ve read your blogs and noticed they end with “live your dash”. What is that?

    Comment by Max — June 8, 2012 @ 2:03 pm

  8. Hope to see you on BP3 with Ryan Park and Reid!!

    Comment by Patrice — June 8, 2012 @ 2:08 pm

  9. I think it is in reference to a tombstone …i.e 2000 dash 2078. Basically life your life and make that dash (from life to death) worth something :) at least that is my take on it.

    Comment by Grace — June 8, 2012 @ 2:58 pm

  10. I may be wrong, but I think live your dash means live your life to the fullest. The dash referring to the one between your birthdate and death date. There is a song or poem about it I think.

  11. the writing is quite bad.

    Comment by andrea — June 8, 2012 @ 3:56 pm

  12. I, too, would enjoy hearing more insider insights, but I do like you, like your blog…”McKenzie-Tracy”, or is it Courtney? Time to let it go, move on, honey.

    Comment by Richard — June 8, 2012 @ 5:28 pm

  13. I enjoy your blog and I REALLY enjoyed you and your vivacious attitude while you were on the bachelor-

    I find Ryan to be such a pig, personally. A real turn off.
    I don’t understand your comment that Emily doesn’t seem to get him – You said “the way he words things seems to offend her.” I know that you had a crush on him initially, but are you really still into him???? You deserve better, Miss Kacie B ;-)

    Comment by Janet — June 8, 2012 @ 6:02 pm

  14. You’re amazing!

    Comment by Emily B — June 8, 2012 @ 8:52 pm

  15. I have to agree with McKenzie and Andrea; this blog is very poorly written. I found it difficult to sludge through it. Perhaps I would run it by someone else before turning it in next time. I mean, I’m assuming you’re getting paid for this, so it should at the very least be well written and coherent.

    Comment by KC — June 9, 2012 @ 12:50 am

  16. I liked you on Ben’s season, however, now that I think about it and read your blog I can see you do have some growing up to do. Ben is this frat boy and Ryan (whom you seem to defend in your blog) is this cocky full of himself jerk. I am glad that Emily does see it as it is and is not falling for Mr. I want to be the next Bachelor.
    As other people mentioned it would be nice to see actual insight than just a recap of what happened. Hello! We did see the episode ourselves – we know what happened. Anyways with this being said I don’t think I am interested in reading your blogs anymore. Natalie’s are way better and funnier. Even Dave’s are far more insightful.

    Comment by Sirena — June 9, 2012 @ 6:56 am

  17. Ladies/Gents, if you don’t like her blog, you don’t have to read it. Remember that she is a person too with feelings. That’s the bad thing about email/texting/blogging…some people say things here that I doubt they would say to her face. Some will I’m sure, but not most.

    The others are right, Live your Dash is the time between your birth and your death. :)

    My 3 favs: Arie, Sean and Jef.

    I’ve got to say I’m surprised she doesn’t already know who Arie is. I would be very surprised if he and Ricky hadn’t raced against each other before Ricky passed away.

    I think your blog was fine, but I do agree to add some of your insight too. One of you ladies needs to write a book about what happens behind the scenes and what it is like to be on the show.

    Comment by Patty — June 9, 2012 @ 11:41 am

  18. I have to agree with some of the other comments – you really need to work on your blogs, they are doing your more harm than good (i definitely thought higher of you before you started writing) – poor grammar, poor content, poor insight.

    Comment by ES — June 9, 2012 @ 1:18 pm

  19. “the way he words things seems to offend her” – are you kidding me? the trophy wife comment amongst many other things he has said are offensive – i don’t think the phrasing is the issue. Yet another reason your blog makes zero sense to me.

    Comment by Ariele — June 9, 2012 @ 1:21 pm

  20. Don’t worry Kacie, just get a good editor!

    Comment by andrea — June 9, 2012 @ 3:08 pm

  21. I’m truly appalled by some of the rude comments. It’a a blog, people. Who are we to criticize someone’s writing like we’re their eighth grade English teacher? People who criticize blogs should spend more time finding their own self worth and less time on Bachelorette blogs.
    Kacie, I read your blog because you seem AWESOME! Thank you for your thoughts and insight. Go Vols!

    Comment by Amanda — June 9, 2012 @ 9:47 pm

  22. I enjoy reading your blog and am interested in your take on the guys. You are a very sweet person.
    Don’t take the nasty comments to heart. Just do what you are doing and know that lots of people support you.

    Comment by Claudia — June 10, 2012 @ 2:58 am

  23. A work in Progress!…..we ALL are!…..you are confident and brave to take on the task of “blogging!”……it is NOT easy, girl, as you may be learning, the hard way, as ALL rookies learn…. many people drink from the “Haterade Fountain” and feel the need to pass along their nasty red stained thermos!!………such is LIFE, Kaci….”Haters gonna Hate, THAT IS THeir job!)…take it in stride, and “what doesn’t kill you WILL make you STRONGER!!!)……give the lady a BREAk, peeps!…!…..if i may try and add some feedback in a kind manner, this is what i observe/d…: i find myself, just needing MORE of your thoughts, MORE insight into what YOU experienced first hand, and possibly try and apply that to what the “guys” may be going thru!….ie: like when you stated that you wished CH would have been there, and why!…(interesting perspective !…follow?)…….try adding something NEW, other than a “recap”….and just MORE!…i feel like you may have left ALOT of “highlights” (such as the Doug and Chris ‘chat,’ or the ‘blue socks’ or Ems chat w/ CH..etc, etc…)…….MORE content, and MORE of your “funny thoughts”….ie: “word of the day calendar ” GOOD STUFF, Kaci !…STUDY your favorite bloggers…mine are: NatGet, AshSpivey MichaelSTags and take YOURs to the NEXT Level!…the Personal Kaci B- LEVEL !….i hope this was a tad helpful, hunny, as i am only trying to shed some light on what others are having a hard time communicating!…….i AGREE with “tj” 2nd commenter…(ask or suggest without being rude!)……SUCCESS is the BEST REVENGE, Baby!…..GO GE EM, KACI!……..PS…..THANK YOU for teaching me about “LIve your Dash!!”……i have only heard of this from YOU, NEVER heard it before!….BUT, WOW!….HOw PROfounD!…..i LOVE it, BRING MORE DASH, mama!………until next time!…….xo Pam……….(PS….before i get BLASTED myself for grammar and run-ons….i apologize ….i’m going 90mph!!!)

    Comment by Pamela B... — June 11, 2012 @ 6:48 am

  24. Would love to hear more insight or thoughts too, this blog was a bit confusing to make sense of. And I was hoping she’d address Ryan’s issues this episode, but she seemed to just ignore them and place the blame for his offending comments on Emily. Interesting. Hoping Kacie is able to find herself someone better than the guys she’s shown she likes so far (Ben & Ryan). There are SO many better catches out there.

    Comment by B — June 11, 2012 @ 8:01 am

  25. gosh, these people are silly. kacie you’re awesome don’t let these mean comments get to you. :) love reading what you have to say :)

    Comment by laur — June 12, 2012 @ 7:59 am

  26. Kacie,
    All of your blogs are poorly written and lack interesting content. I am not telling you this to “bring you down” or hurt your feelings and I know all of those who commented on here are just trying to make you aware that BIG GIRLS look over their written materials before posting them live for hundreds to see, because YOUR NAME is SIGNED to it! I say hundreds because I highly doubt many people actually look at this blog other than the couple fans you gained from being on one reality show. Also it is very sad to me,but not surprising that you have such a crush on Ryan bowers and when I looked at his twitter it seems as though you pathetically stalk him/tweet him and get barely any response from him back. Might want to stop that…makes you look really desperate and honestly a horrible judge of character. He values women for their looks, body and how “magnetic” they are in society. Is THAT NOT A RED FLAG TO YOU? Are you that immature still that you are attracted to guys like that, JUST BC HE PLAYED FOOTBALL and is attractive. It is seriously going to hurt you in the future, because when guys see you are into those types of guys, they will have less respect for you. I highly suggest you do some reflecting, not running, working out everyday, not tweeting every second, but ACTUALLY reflecting. Your job as a skin consultant for rodney and fields, shows me you have low ambition, as anyone can become a sales consultant for them. It’s basically like not even having a real job, but selling products whenever you feel like it. GET OUT IN THE WORLD, Get a REAL job, Grow as a person and you will attract the RIGHT mate and be attracted to the right PEOPLE. You obsess over the WRONG THINGS, including girls who are prettier than you. We are all looking forward to you growing up KACIE…

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