Ding, Dong the Villain is Gone

**DISCLAIMER** I am not a single mom, the following comments are coming from a single, childless (according to Kalon, baggage-less), 24 year old, so I apologize in advance if I offend anyone.

I was armed and ready for this week’s episode with my sister, tacos, Texas Pete, and Twitter (the triple T)… where there was a lot of yelling “WHAT?” “Come on!” and “Are you kidding me?” for 2 hours of my life.

The guys are in LONDON, and I must admit I’m pretty jealous. It’s on my Bucket List so I can’t wait to see what parts of it they get to see! When they arrive the date card it there! Sean gets the first date!

SEAN: Sean and Emily start their date on their very own private double decker tour bus, and Emily is quite the tour guide, she did her research before this trip! They do take very cute picture together… they might have the Southern Living Christmas card photo of the year in 2013.

(Side note: Back at the house Kalon says that whoever ends up with Emily will be on “group dates” the rest of their life.  Bad move buddy, and if that was a joke, there should be fruit flying your way.)

Back to Sean, he stole my heart on Speakers Corner… you could tell he was uncomfortable, but he did such a great job, he’d better get the rose! Emily looks stunning at supper in the sparkly dress… a must have. At the prison, they had a very pleasant experience, unlike most people that have been there that have been beheaded… Thank goodness Sean is killing this date, if not he would join the others fate… eek!  Sean gets the rose!!! (no brainer!!)

Kalon thinks he’s entitled to this one on one date, and I’m so happy it goes to Jef (with one f). I’m ready to see if Kalon puts his foot in his mouth!!!

GROUP DATE: Doug, Arie, Ryan, Kalon, Travis, Alejandro, John, and Chris.  I’m cracking up at these auditions! Travis kills the auditions because that’s all he grew up doing in Madison, MS! (or not, he had me rolling). Poor Arie, he’s a nervous wreck, but he sure is cute when he’s nervous! Now to Kalon (one of the Romeo’s and how he got that part I have no idea), he seems to be quite the serious “thespian”, and needs his practice time so he dismisses his Juliet when she comes to visit…strike 12. Boy, oh boy, this is where I yelled my 4th “Are you kidding me?!” Best costumes go to Doug (John gives him best kiss) and Arie (he rocked the long, single braid, I hope that this episode brings it back).

Now the drama begins… they all head to the Pub to celebrate a great show… here are the highlights: Things get hot and heavy between Emily and Arie (I’m calling him in the top 2), Ryan redeems himself WINK and Emily admits to falling for him, and now Kalon stirs the pot.  As soon as it is brought to all of the guys attention that Kalon is calling Ricky “baggage”, Doug and the men confront Kalon first, he admits to it, won’t apologize for it… oh boy.  Thank goodness Doug comes in to the rescue and tells Emily ASAP what happens.  Emily is livid, and so was I, he deserves the ”Go West Virginia, hood rat, backwoods on his A$$.” that is coming.  I applaud her for standing up for her family and Ricky and kicking him out right then and there.  Kalon, KICK ROCKS… and buy a filter.  I hate that someone like Kalon has shaken Emily’s faith in all of this and now she is questioning all of the guys sincerity and “having her back.” I’m a little miffed that she keeps saying no one brought it to her attention… didn’t Doug tell her. If “no one told her” then how did she know that Kalon had said that in the first place?? Don’t act like you weren’t thinking or yelling that as well. Props to Doug! But no one gets a rose on this night… Not sure this is how Shakespeare would have ended the night like this.

JEF (with one f): I’m really excited to see some more of Jef.  He seems like a really chill dude so I wanna see how these two mesh together.  This date starts off, and I’m dying… this 2-on-1 date with Jean (the manners Nazi), Jef, and Emily is cracking me up.  I’m so glad they ditched her and went out for a real time.  Going to the Pub and having fish and chips is so real, and Jef seems to be opening up.  Jef seems so cool and chill, he’s not someone I’d date, but would love to dance party with.  He is def sweet and genuine and deep… I’m digging him, and it seems Emily is too now.  By the end of this date I think she has gotten some of her confidence back! Thank goodness, because you can’t get this far and start questioning yourself. Way to go Jef!

RC: Emily starts grilling these dudes on if they “have her back” or not… I know that I’m loyal to a fault and I want that as well, so I’m glad she was making sure they would all be there for her… and I may get criticized for this, but after a few minutes I was uncomfortable with all of the confrontation and it seemed like she was SEMI-overreacting a little bit (note: SEMI, she has every right to question, just saying). But the guys handled it very well, and I’m glad that she is feeling better about all of this, because when you look as stunning as she did, you have to be confident in your decisions!

ELIMINATED: Kalon and Alejandro

I just want to say, that no woman should let any man like that acted like Kalon shake your confidence in all men.  There are really great guys out there and they deserve that chance!  From someone who’s been burned once or twice (or three) times… always tread cautiously, but don’t doubt someone who hasn’t earned it and miss out on someone amazing!

After the promo for the rest of the season I can’t freaking wait!  Until then LIVE YOUR DASH… Psalm 91


  1. I think by now we all know that Jef is spelled with one F – no need to remind us twice in one blog.

    FYI – I am on team Jef and hope they work out but as you know better than most – you really don’t know what goes on behind the scenes. He is such a babyface and reminds me of late fiance Ricky, who she supposedly met in her teens. I was hoping he would kiss her while they were having dessert up in the air. What a cool “ride” – but timing has to be right I guess.

    Lastly – you are so young and sweet. 24. OMG. Mr Right will come along – just give it time.

  2. Team Sean!! Their slow dance during the cocktail party was so cute.

    Ryan is not for Emily, but is not a bad guy. Editing!!! He is being funny people..

    Also, don’t apologize for your opinions.

    Comment by tj — June 13, 2012 @ 4:46 pm

  3. He’ll always be Jef (with one f). Everybody’s doing it. Get used to it if you plan to keep reading blogs, Twitter, Facebook, or any other website that discusses the Bachelorette.

    Comment by Amy — June 13, 2012 @ 4:47 pm

  4. Kacie, love reading your blogs! Your such a sweet heart hope that one day soon you meet your Prince Charming! Are you going to
    tell us who you think she ends up engaged to? Can’t wait to read next weeks! God Bless!

    Comment by Caroline — June 13, 2012 @ 4:50 pm

  5. I like your blog this week. I actually agree with you that Emily was overreacting after the Kalon incident. He certainly deserved her wrath, but the other guys didn’t deserve her distrust. And why didn’t Doug get the recognition for bringing up what Kalon said? He should have gotten the rose, for sure. I love Jef and Sean as well. I’m not so hot on Arie. He just seems to be coming on too hot and heavy too soon. Jef and Sean are taking a slower, more romantic approach.

    Comment by Phoebe — June 13, 2012 @ 6:52 pm

  6. I agreed that she was overreacting when she called out the rest of the guys, but after reading Ashley Spivey’s blog, I think I can sort of see another side of it. I highly doubt that this was the first comment that Kalon has said to the guys so it’s possible that Emily was angry that the guys hadn’t told her about any of the comments until this current one.

    Comment by Danielle — June 13, 2012 @ 7:33 pm

  7. Kacie, I realize you dont need to be reminded. However, you and Emily discovered last year that one who “reports” someones actions dont always come out on the side of being appreciated. Emily M did overreact and doesnt think back to what she may have been privey to that she did not pass along to Brad.
    It is all “perspective”. As has so many times in past seasons been stated, dont waste your time with the Bachelor/ette talking about someone else. That had to be in the minds of some of the guys. Beside, Doug did report it, so it wasnt possible for anyone else to do it.

    Comment by Divrdwn41 — June 13, 2012 @ 8:56 pm

  8. And allow me to make a suggestion for when you visit London. The first day go on the Hop On Hop Off bus as Emily had done with Ricki and you will get all the highlights to then take advantage of with your remaining days. I had been there the week before the Queens Jubilee and was able to really appreciate the sights and their background. Had even been to Cox’s where Kalon got fitted for Emily’s boot tip in Stratford on Avon. And he had a two hour ride back to London afterwards. A lot of time to think about his errors.

    Comment by Divrdwn41 — June 13, 2012 @ 9:04 pm

  9. Man, that must have been an awkward 2 hour ride for the camera guy!
    Kacie, this blog was AWESOME this week….leading me to believe that perhaps last week you were a bit rushed to get it in. You are hilarious girl! And a good writer. I agree with you about One F Jef, he seems cool to hang out with more than I’d want to date him, but Emily is really digging him, and I love watching that! They were so cute. This was a great episode!
    I think the real problem is that she wanted ARIE to be the one to tell her about kalon, and his excuse as to why he didn’t was lame in her eyes. She obviously isnt that into Doug because she didn’t even give him credit for telling her, except to give him the first rose at RC (and I’m pretty sure that was suppose to be a lesson she was trying to teach Arie, seeing as she let him sweat it out and gave him the last rose too. She was saying very loudly with her actions: “I value those who have my back!” I think the lesson hits home for Arie as we see in upcoming episodes that he goes knocking on her door to do a little tattle-telling of his own).
    Then again, that might be too much analyzing. She may have been just so mad she couldn’t think strait. :-p

    Great blog Kacie B, you are such a Southern sweetheart. Keep looking for the right guy, I know so many friends that have found their husbands in their early 20s and are still happy now in their 30s. If you’re open to meeting the right one, he’ll find you :)

    Comment by Beth — June 13, 2012 @ 9:34 pm

  10. Well done Kacie! I really think you should have been the Bachlorette. Maybe you could give us some insider information on what the daily schedules are like on the show, what you do during downtimes and how you think the guys get along off camera. I wonder how different people are off-camera? Thanks for keeping us up to date!

    Comment by Reality Check — June 13, 2012 @ 10:03 pm

  11. Loved your take. Totally enjoyed your point of view.
    Arie, Jef and Sean are my favs for her.
    And I think it will come down to Arie and Jef at the end.

    Comment by Claudia — June 14, 2012 @ 3:19 am

  12. Ryan is really the best for her . I hope he makes hometowns. He is mature, athletic, witty, charming, and doesnt live that far from NC..just a jump over in GA. This week he really shined through. He was there when she needed someone..he helped lift her spirit with some light heartedness.
    Jef-I dont see it..nice guy but I dont see the passion.
    Ari- I can see the passion with him and her, but towards the end of ep5 it was dim. I think he’ll make hometowns.
    Doug- Yawn
    Chris- Yawn some more..how is he still here?
    Travis- I like him..he is also a southern boy from my neck of the woods Mississippi. Would like to see him in hometowns.
    Sean-Another Southern man “I think Emily will pick a Southerner” He seems really nice.. Actually he would be a great pick for you Kacie! I know you and him share a strong faith in Christianity. And he is also from the south. If him and Em dont hook up I hope you and him can meet up for a casual date somewhere..I think it would take off ;)
    Wolf- he seems nice. One of my hometown picks for Emly.

  13. Re: Comment by Thomas Knight

    Either you are Ryan or his relative or if you are a female fan pretending otherwise, then you have some messed up self esteem daddy issues to even remotely think that a man who is that self centered, that egotistical, that creepy, that much of a player is a good mate for anyone besides a Kadashian. If you are a guy as you claim, then either you are as big a DB as him, high or mentally challenged. By the sound of what you said, I’d say all of the above.

  17. Um, comment to Onetwotreetree:

    Emily is the Bachelorette. The whole show IS about her.

    Comment by Catherine — June 14, 2012 @ 12:49 pm

  18. @catherine THANKS FOR THE NEWS NO DUH

    Comment by Onetwotreetree — June 14, 2012 @ 2:00 pm

  19. @ WTH: Thomas Knight has been on this forum before this season, so I doubt he’s Ryan. He may also be getting sources from other places that say Ryan’s not as bad as he appears to be on the show. It IS edited. Though I still don’t like Ryan.

    @ Catherine: I suggest giving Onetwotreetree the silent treatment, as nearly everyone does on the Bach board except the few that have her limited IQ and EQ. She’s one messed up troll!

    Comment by Jolene — June 14, 2012 @ 2:17 pm

  20. Jolene is correct I have posted on this site when Ben was the bachelor. Also about Ryan I checked out his facebook page..its really good. He is into helping young teenagers as a football coach. He is established, has friends, and he is rather entertaining..i think he is being over edited myself.

    Comment by Thomas Knight — June 14, 2012 @ 2:23 pm

  21. Love Jef with one F.

    And you can say JEF WITH ONE F if you want to (referring to first comment). Don’t hold back because we love getting not only your comments but also your personality through these blogs!


    Comment by J — June 14, 2012 @ 2:26 pm

  22. @ Jolene, Your just jealous and you hate your life. I can say whatev I want on the bachlorette board so suck it.

    Comment by Onetwotreetree — June 14, 2012 @ 3:35 pm

  23. @ Thomas Knight: I agree with you, I think Ryan was heavily edited. I remember when he said the worst things, like wanting to be the next Bachelor that the camera was to his back or not directly on him, and who knows what the producers said to prompt him. I have a feeling he’d do better in another (non-reality show) setting, and he has the makings of a motivational speaker.

    @ Onetwotreetree: I think you’re talking about yourself. You’ve written the most offensive, negative, childish, envious, insulting things on the Bach board and helped make it a generally hateful place. You’d be the definition of a hate-mongor if decent people actually bothered with you.

    Sorry for hijacking your page, KACIE B, GOOD JOB ON YOUR BLOG…YOU’RE A REAL SWEETHEART!

  24. *hate-monger*

    Comment by Jolene — June 14, 2012 @ 4:27 pm

  25. @Jolene…your are right about “worn-out Onetwo”…I ignore EVERY post written by her/him.

    Comment by Kathy — June 14, 2012 @ 8:14 pm

  26. @ Kathy: Ugh, yes..I avoid every post started or written by Onetwotreetree and now rarely go onto the board. It used to be a fun place but seems like it’s getting more negative. And Onetwotreetree really wrote his/her nasty posts with so much glee and disrespect to others, it was disgusting.

    Comment by Onetwotreetree — June 15, 2012 @ 2:41 pm

  27. Damn, I was thinking so much about that nasty Onetwotreetree I put her name in by mistake! YUCK!

    - Jolene

    Comment by Jolene — June 15, 2012 @ 2:42 pm

  28. Love you and your blogs, Kacie! You’re a true sweetheart and I agree with everyone else in that you’ll definitely meet a good, Southern (Christian) guy someday. Kudos to you for being open about having such good morals and values and being family-oriented. You’re a gem!

    I enjoy reading your blogs so keep it up. :)

    Comment by Amanda — June 15, 2012 @ 8:02 pm

  29. @ Kathy @ Jolene I can’t stand that Onetwotreetree either and avoid all his/her posts. 1. Never open anything started by her obviously and 2. Always glance at the poster’s name first when reading down a thread. There’s about 4-5 bad nasties, but Onetwotreetree is by far the worst and the most mental! Misery is as misery does.

    Comment by Lizzie — June 15, 2012 @ 11:49 pm

  30. Jolene I think you said it best –

    Comment by Lizzie — June 15, 2012 @ 11:52 pm

  31. 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. We are all looking forward to you growing up KACIE…

    Comment by Stacey — June 19, 2012 @ 1:33 pm

  32. Piss up-wind Stace^^^^ She probably won’t even read that first sentence, if she even reads these. “ARE YOU THAT IMMATURE” to write comments on peoples blogs as if someone will read the damn thing. If you don’t like her blogs, than don’t read them. You write like a 45 year old mom who just learned how to use a Caps Lock button. Would you like it if someone ripped on you, when all she is doing is BLOGGGGGGGGGING for crying out loud. You were probably one of the very few people who voted for Courtney or something. if so, you clearly have horrid taste and would make sense of what you say. So pretty much your spent the half hour “perfecting” your comment, if you will. Or, wasting your time writing something so inconsiderate and degrading that your making yourself look like a total brat and nonetheless trashy. Your probably just jealous of Kasie… seems like it.

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

  33. Wow I just came here to read Kacie’s blog but I’m glad other people rightfully realize how repulsive Onetwotreetree is. I don’t even bother to read any threads or posts written by him/her either on the bachelor board. Never got why people even bother to reply or whenever he/she gets called out they just reiterate the same post. Don’t even have enough of a backbone to defend or justify your ignorant posts you stupid troll? Geeesh.

    Comment by Paulina — June 20, 2012 @ 11:14 am

  34. Kacie,

    I personally think that your blog is very interesting and good for you for having this opportunity to talk about a very popular show in a very public forum!! I really hope that you do not let bullies like @Stacey bring you down or doubt what you are doing. If no one thought you were interesting, then you would not have been chosen to write these blogs. That woman is clearly EXTREMELY jealous of you because you are a beautiful, bright, young woman with lots of options. She is a sad, insecure B#@5& that gets off on bullying nice, sweet people that are not going to make a$$es of themselves by responding to that mess. So I’ll make an a$$ of myself defending you because I don’t think that was right. =) I think you are so sweet and I sincerely hope that you don’t think twice about these jaded, “I hate everyone smaller, prettier, funnier, smarter than me” women. You are a great person and I just hope you continue being a very positive light in many lives!! Good luck and God bless Kacie!

    Comment by Kim — June 20, 2012 @ 6:42 pm

  35. I’m so obsessed with this season. Jef all the way! It’s so cute how they are kind of shy around each other. I feel their butterflies just watching the two of them together. I guarantee Jef will be the one, they are already in love with each other!!!

    Comment by Angela — June 20, 2012 @ 9:05 pm

  36. For those of you saying that I hate Kacie because she is smaller, prettier, funnier, smarter than me is quite comical. First of all you have no idea what I look like and unlike Kacie I don’t have to go on a reality show to find a husband, so the fact that I am married to a gorgeous successful man shows I am just trying to give her wisdom that obviously she hasn’t learned yet. In actuality I am smaller, more fit, more entertaining & have my masters from an Ivy league school. I appoligize if sometimes my lecturing comes off as demeaning but in reality sometimes it takes someone saying those things to you for you to actually consider growing up in a different light. You think the beautiful, successful, powerful women of our time never had someone push them, bring them down, critize them?? I think not, if anything it contributed to their great success. Also as far as thinking KACIE actually reads these. Yes I know for a fact she does, because #1 she is a just a normal girl not a reality celebrity and #2 this is the BIGGEST thing she is doing right now. Writing for warner bros. So I GUARENTEE she looks a these comments, because she wants to see what people think, you’re an idiot if you think she doesn’t. I guarentee those standing up for her on here are her sister, friends or herself, lol. For those of you who say she’s so sweet and innocent, ha. You really didn’t watch the show she was on, because anyone with two eyes could of seen she was just as bitchy, manipulative, jealous, and mean as courtney was.

    XO Stacey

    Comment by Stacey — June 21, 2012 @ 9:04 am

  37. Stacey, please stop posting stupid shit, its getting old. You contradict yourself too many times, I wish i had enough fingers and toes to count them. You know nothing about her, no one does, but no one else is saying they’re best friends by any means. And then you brag about finding a gorgeous, successful husband without being on a tv show… good for you, and the rest of America. & i just love hearing you say you don;t mean to sound :demeaning” every word you say is “demeaning”, you know that, and know that you’d think you would just keep your thoughts and comments to yourself. & yeah you try being on a show where there is one guy and 20+ girls wanting the same damn thing. You said she’s just a normal girl, right? so like any other girl she is just trying to start another chapter of her life. Who cares if she does it on a TV show or the old fashioned way. you being married and all should understand that. love is love. your the first person to do some growing up, commenting on this blog, trying to give advice and “words of wisdom” like your Mother Theresa… & who gives a rats ass if you have your masters from an “Ivy school” You bragging to someone who isn’t the least bit interested in what you have. Good for you though, all that bragging and you make yourself come off as a snobby brat who wants nothing more than to sit on her computer and criticize the shit out of someone who doesn’t deserve it. & to your last statement, SHUT UP!

  39. @ Lizzie…thanks, Lizzie. Yes, Onetwotreetree is a bitter, insane nut! Fortunately I haven’t been on the boards for a while so I haven’t been exposed to her negative energy. I feel sorry for Onetwotreetree, I’m convinced she needs to be put on meds.
