Episode 9:  I hate when words don’t sound like they’re spelled.  Curacao.  Ugh.  

Emily and Sean:  Hour vary own, praaaahhhhvit aaaahhhlind. (trying to type in a southern accent)

Emily tells Sean she is taking him to, “our very own, private island.”  Wait a minute, didn’t Brad give this very same date to Emily?  Does that mean that Emily is most into Sean right now?  Does that mean she picks him in the end?  Whomp whomp…not so much.  Sean says he is glad that it’s just the two of them and acts as if there aren’t 20 people behind the camera.  If you turn the camera there is probably Kraft services, interview set up areas, and lots of lights. Hahahaha ;)

Sean asks Emily how she liked his family and if there was anything she found out that she didn’t already know.  I think he was asking this to start a sweet conversation and be cute, but Emily shot him down by answering almost a little too quickly, “Ya your family said you treat your girlfriends like best buddies.”  She doesn’t laugh or even crack a smile.  She just sits there, staring at him, making him as uncomfortable as possible.  Sean is such a sweet guy.

Emily’s colorful maxi dress is similar to that of the one she wore on her date with Arie last week.  I’m obsessed with it!  I think it would be funny if Emily wore the same outfit on all three dates, just like a lot of people would do in real life if they were not going to be out with the same people.

After a day of scuba diving, Sean still can’t get out those three little words.  I think it’s because Emily is putting on some awkward pressure!  Sean is slowly starting to tell Emily how he feels stating that, “I don’t want you to be worried with how my life is going to fit with your life.”  Emily quickly interrupts him by dropping a huge bomb exclaiming, “It’s not just me. It’s Ricki and I.”  I mean, wow.  It would have been nice to know that Emily was a single mom before filming began.  Unbelievable timing.  If I were Emily, I would have just kept that to myself and told him after the proposal.

After Sean reads Emily a super sweet letter that he wrote for Ricki Tick that had me in tears (not gonna lie), he told Emily that his life would change drastically and that he finds that exciting.  Emily darts him a stare, but he didn’t mean it bad!  He is just stating facts, jeez!

Sean takes what seems like 10 decades to spit it out that he loves Emily.  Good Lord!  She asks him if he could see himself proposing at the end and he literally paused way too much and took a little to long to just freaking say, yes…I love you.  Good gracious!  Emily then leans in to him and lays down a kiss.  Sean slowly, uncomfortably, and awkwardly reached for Emily’s side knee.  Why wouldn’t he just grab her and hold her while he kissed her like he did in Prague? Was that “chase down wall slam kiss” alcohol induced?  Sean seems to shy when he is sober.  I wish he were drunk right now so I could see more passion from him.

Emily states that every fiber of her body wants to stay the night with Sean, but every fiber in her brain is telling her not too.  So, in other words, she is extremely horny.  If only most of us had fibers in our brain that spoke to us, the population wouldn’t be so out of control.

Emily says good night to Sean in a super cool and different white cover up with an open back and fringe detail at the sleeve.  I MUST HAVE!  Possessionista…help!

Emily and Jef:  Wait a minute…Emily has a kid?

Jef is worried because he is only one week away from proposing to his girlfriend, but she is still in serious relationships with two other guys.  This is concerning.  Red flag!  Emily is a total player ;) Jef continues to tell Emily that his family loved her and that he spoke with his parents and they can’t wait to meet her.  Emily is happy that Jef loves hanging out with parents because she is a parent herself, after all.

My neighbor was obsessed with Emily until he walked in as I was watching this date and saw her plug her nose to jump into the water.  Apparently this is a deal breaker. I thought it was pretty hilarious!  Emily and Jef continue to dangerously dive off of every ledge possible even in shallow water.  If these two keep at it, Ricki will be taking care of them.

Emily definitely got this little number at All Saints.  One of my favorite stores, All Saints has a very unique style that screams their brand whenever I see it.  This certain cocktail dress is short in length with an Aztec print across a shimmery, sequin spread.  This is a great way to wear sequins…dazzled down a bit by the color and design of the dress.

As Jef reads the fantasy suite card, he makes Emily giggle by saying, “Of course I’d love to forgo our individual rooms…” in such a cute, quirky way which she loves that I can tell she is ALL about his personality.  Arie and Jef don’t have a shot!  I think Emily will pick Jef in the long run, because she is more attracted to him than she is Sean, and as far as Arie goes, I feel like she thinks Jef is safer bet.  Jef won’t let all this reality TV bullshit go to his head and he won’t be cheating on Emily, whereas I feel Arie has it in him to let his ego blow up a little bit and possibly not work out with Emily.

Emily and Arie:  This date brought to you by D.A.R.E. “Just Say No”

Emily’s white dress is perfection wrapped in a wide brown belt to give it some shape.  Her and Arie really do make a ridiculously good looking couple.

OK, so here is how this date went down:  Emily takes Arie swimming with Dolphins after he passionately kisses her the second he sees her. Emily acts scared, jumps his bones, make out session.  They are lying out and the conversation is dulling down.  Emily acts aroused, leans in, make out session.  They are eating dinner.  Arie proves he is more than just a sex toy, Emily digs this, make out session.  Conclusion:  Emily can not trust herself to even go into the fantasy suite with him for a couple hours to chat.  In fact, she cries about it because she wants him so bad.  That’s some serious will power!  That would be like me turning down a date with Jeff Goldblum, and that would never happen.  Good for her, boring for us, make out, make out, make out.  Let’s be honest, if Emily doesn’t pick Arie in the end…whoever she picks will probably not be a fan of watching her and Arie making love, fully dressed, non stop.

Rose Ceremony:  Seriously, Emily has a kid?

Emily’s long, detailed skirt is beautiful.  She took something incredibly fancy and dulled it down a bit with a basic fitted tank and several necklaces.  This is the perfect look for the environment that they are in.

Emily obviously had a really hard time sending Sean home, and after tonight’s episode I was hurting for him.  He is hands down just a good, solid dude.  He has that religious side to him that doesn’t allow him to lead girls on unless he is 100% into them.  With that being said, he was head over heals for Emily.  I think he would make a great Bachelor!  What do you all think?  Are you happy with her final two?  As much as I love Sean as a person, I’m very happy with Jef and Arie as her final choices!

You know, the reason these relationships are so incredible, is because there are no cell phone interruptions, work interruptions, money issues, etc.  I mean, must be freaking nice.  Now, let’s get ready for my favorite episode every season, The Men Tell All!

  4. I was really thinking that Sean was best for Emily and her lifestyle. It annoyed me how she was pressuring Sean to say he loved her, then as soon as he does she lets him go. Not nice.

    I don’t know if either of the two remaining are going to be right for her. She,self admittedly, doesn’t do much and is afraid of most things physical. Both Arie and Jef seem like adventurous men.

    Comment by tj — July 10, 2012 @ 4:48 pm

  5. I honestly don’t think she can go a day without kissing Arie . She will always be thinking of him. And Jef will know she is always thinking of him.

    Comment by Becca — July 10, 2012 @ 5:11 pm

  6. Did anyone proof read this?

    1)You said Jef and Arie don’t have a shot – you meant Sean and Arie (re: the reading of the fantasy suite card when with Jef); 2) Sean and Em went snorkling, not scuba diving; and 3)”craft services” is a generic term for the food, beverages, etc provided on a filming set – has nothing to do with Kraft.

    I shall stop here and make no further comments.

  7. I’m not sure why people are upset when someone has to go home, she can’t marry 3 men and I think Emily has handled herself well in making them all feel special, so let’s just root for our favorite and have fun.

    Sean had to go and its like going on the Amazing race and you hate travelling, you must be open to love when you go on the Bachelorette plus after the story about his ex-girlfriend I couldn’t help feeling a bit of Karma smacked him in the face.

    Jef,is great and cute and cuddly like a fuzzy bear. I think of him as Emily’s security blanket, you hold onto it because it makes you feel secure and comfortable especially when you are facing challenges…. and Emily’s challenge is definitely Arie.

    The one thing I picked up from this season is that I hope more Americans travel to Europe! They love so passionately and it is evident when the camera picks up Arie’s eyes that he is in love with her and a little lust doesn’t hurt either.
    Viewers should not forget that Emily’s one true love before this was to a race car driver, and racing is in Ricki’s DNA. Who else other than Arie can explain to Ricki about the passion of the sport that her Dad so loved. See the big picture people, he’s ready and as long as Emily keeps him on his toes, they will do fine.

    Great season looking forward to the finale…kinda wishing she chooses Arie but if she doesn’t while she’s making cookies with Jef, let’s hope come night time she’s not dreaming about making love with Arie :)

  8. Love your blog — good job as always!

    Comment by Lisa James — July 10, 2012 @ 5:51 pm

  9. I couldn’t agree with you more about choosing Jef because he’s the safer bet. I think apart of the reason Emily didn’t choose Sean is because she’s insecure and doesn’t think she’s good enough for someone like him. I also think that Emily is afraid that Arie has it in him to be a heartbreaker.

    Comment by Liah — July 10, 2012 @ 5:56 pm

  10. 1. Sean deserves someone way better than this chick with a kid who brings zero to the relationship.
    2. Life with Jef will be horrible in Utah around Mormon’s. Ugh.
    3. Erie is a player

    Ashley Spivey’s tetas are so horrible looking. They look like oversized cylinders. Not sexy. Bag the face too.

    Comment by Vargas — July 10, 2012 @ 6:19 pm

  11. Songwriter: Natalie just seems so ignorant. With every blog, this chick seems more stupid.

    Comment by 7 day forecast — July 10, 2012 @ 6:22 pm

  12. I love that you love Jeff Goldblum! I must say, I watched Independence Day last week with a new perspective! ;)

    Great blog, as always, I love your refreshing comments!

    Comment by Dee Tee — July 10, 2012 @ 6:31 pm

  13. This Emily woman just can’t take a joke, Natalie. I know you are trying very hard to be politically correct when commenting on Emily’s verbal and non-verbal cues, but jeez, as I watch her journey I find her a woman hard to please, so uptight, self-absorbed. Beauty can keep the man interested for so long. She is so hard on the guys that the eliminated guys should feel they dodged a major bullet. In this speed dating environment they are forced to pour out “i love you” to stay till the next round but i wonder if they are thinking now what the heck they were thinking.

    Emily has nothing to offer in a relationship. It has to be a 2 way street. Jeez yesterday she made a comment on her twitter whining about how mean people are the ones that quote bible in their profile bio, well guess what, Emily is a churchgoer who quotes scriptures and bibble all the time and she made that “poking eyes with stunt pencils” regarding Kalon. Even Ashley H never made any mean comments on Bentley outside the show.

    I started watching in Ashley’s season and wondered why people did not like her. Well now I watch Emily and I appreciate Ashley H so much. Ashley gives in a relationship, Emily just wants to take, take, take. What a bunch of idiots they cast for her. Intelligent men run away from her ASAP. Actually they stay to get fantasy suit then run. No wonder why she is still single.

  14. I love reading your stuff…you add fashion in your stories like I add food in mine. If I wasn’t already married, I would marry Sean. ;-)

    Comment by Della — July 10, 2012 @ 9:02 pm

  15. Sean was sooo hot. I can’t believe she would not choose him.

    Comment by Paulina — July 11, 2012 @ 12:15 am

  16. Emily has two really good guys. But will it last???

  17. Ahhhh. Song leader- #1= joke. Obviously. Sweet comment.

    Comment by Emma — July 11, 2012 @ 7:32 am

  18. Great blog Natalie! You are beautiful, down-to-earth and fun! Like you say about Jef, you don’t let reality TV go to your head either … commendable!

    Comment by High Road — July 11, 2012 @ 8:09 am

  19. You made my morning at work so great! I was laughing by myself every other sentence I read. Great job on the blog, keep it up! You are too legit to quit ;)

    Comment by Jenny1823 — July 11, 2012 @ 10:35 am

  20. Great blog this week Nat, I believe if she chooses Jef she will be thinking about making love to Arie! Arie all the way!

    Comment by Akesha — July 11, 2012 @ 11:31 am

  21. @Dodge that bullet, gents: Emily is more than ready to find love, get married, and start a family. The show IS speed dating. It’s boring to see some men every episode that have committment issues-STAY HOME. We like watching the couples that fall hard, fast. Emily has a good head on her shoulders and her decisions have been right on track. She can read men well, and a woman can foresee how a man will be in a relationship.

    Comment by Kelly — July 11, 2012 @ 2:50 pm

  22. If she doesn’t pick Arie she’ll never get him out of her mind and wish and long for the days she had him. Arie is he total package. Jeff is plain boring and after a while she’ll regret ever meeting him. I think he’d be very controlling and she wouldn’t be happy.

    Comment by Piper — July 11, 2012 @ 5:28 pm

  23. I want to know if the tv crew gets to chow down on the dinners that Emily and the 3 guys get. I never see them eating any of it. Seems a big waste to me if somebody doesn’t at least get a “doggie bag”. I mean I saw crab meat and I would die for crab meat! Just sayin’

    Comment by Yvonne — July 11, 2012 @ 5:55 pm

  24. are you excited to see stevie at MTA? hahahahaha your boy!

    Comment by Andrea — July 12, 2012 @ 9:29 am

  25. Emily made a big mistake sending Sean home.

    Comment by Anne — July 12, 2012 @ 10:39 pm

  26. I would have picked Sean as my final. I’d love to see either him or Arie as the next Bachelor.

    I think it would be so fun to start a whole new life, pick a whole new state to live in with a new man and get married and start a family. I’m sure this has been an unforgettable experience for all the Bachelor/Bachelorett’s.

    Comment by Tiffany — July 13, 2012 @ 8:00 am

  27. Emily treated Sean poorly on their last date … she focused on making him say things he had already shown her in so many ways, or said. Emily was much easier on Jef (I think she feels sorry for him, myself) or Arie.

    After Sean saw the episodes, he is quoted as saying something about Emily not being for him. And he is right. Sean deserves someone better than Emily. Hope he’s the next bachelor!

    As for Arie or Jef – I could give a rip which one she picks next week.

    Comment by Migs — July 13, 2012 @ 6:15 pm

  28. I saw your hateful comments on the net about Sean. Bitch you are a total skank. Used up, busted. STFU.

  30. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my good old room
    mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him.
