Episode 3:  Egg Breaking, Tears and Incest.

FINALLY, this episode gave me some serious entertainment.  You know it’s good when you are touched with the following emotions during a 2-hour reality television show: sadness, laughter, repulsiveness and embarrassment.  Emily is clearly making a few obvious connections, and this week we see that she will no doubt find love…or lust.

Emily and Chris’s date:  ”There ain’t no elevators, honey.”

I have difficulties with Southern Accents and Southern Slang combined.  I can handle it, as it’s often cute, but all I am saying is that I struggle with the combination of the two. Chris’s obsession with Emily in a harness makes me wonder if he has been mistaking a porn shop for the local library.  After climbing up a building (very original, I might add), they eat dinner atop the roof.  HELLS NO!  You won’t ever find me doing anything to conquer my fear of heights.  It’s simply not important to me.  I don’t need to prove a point by putting my life in danger.  Do you have any idea how devastated people would be?  Ugh.

Emily gasps as she learns Chris’s old age of 25.  I told you in my first blog he looked more 35 than 25.  He definitely has older features and carries himself like a man should.  This good-looking catch is growing on me and obviously Emily, as she gives him the rose despite his lack of an experienced past.  Yes, he had a girlfriend of 6 years, but he hasn’t been on the single market long enough to find himself.  Or has he?  I don’t know…not the point. They continue to dance away to one of Chris’s favorite country bands and then, of course, make out like college students at a Dave Mathews Band concert.

Side note:  You know that sexy, baseball player jaw?  Doesn’t Chris look like he belongs on the packaging for the gum, Big League Chew?  If you don’t recall that brand of gum, you probably are too young to be reading my blog.  Shut your laptop and get back to bed.  IMMEDIATELY.

Group Date:  Is Tony still using his “Kermie” voice?  

Does Emily ever have a bad day?  Well, I’d hope not when she knows she is being filmed… but still.  She looks great dressed down in a pair of bright blue, cut off jean shorts and a boyfriend cut sweater.

The guys are divided into teams to play a little friendly game of football together, but not until after Ryan opens up his big, dumb cocky mouth and puts Emily on the spot by being obnoxious, calling her out on her kiss with Chris the night before.  He then continues to not only interrupt Emily’s “girl time,” but he goes on to tell her that if she were to gain weight he wouldn’t want to be intimate with her.  I sincerely hope he sticks around for a while.  There is something entertaining about watching someone make a fool of themself.  This is why I enjoyed watching myself on TV, perhaps.

How is Ostrich Egg guy going to catch a football when he is holding Shelley?  If he is really going to name his egg, which is so weird in the first place, at least give it a better name than that of one trending in the late 70′s.  Aside from the egg, all the guys in this frame are dressed casually cute.  Alejandro for sure had the best swagger of the group sporting an edgy pair of board shorts and a basic red crewneck.  Hell, even Stevie had on a cool shirt.

GetzStyle Tip:  This is an example of how you can mess up a V-neck.  The “v” needs to be a lot deeper.  It’s all about the cut, people!  On a good note, Michael is giving me ideas of how I’m going to wear my hair tomorrow

After a very long, tiring day, Tony is feeling depressed and guilty about being away from his son.  He misses him so much that he can’t handle being away from him any longer.  Tony shows how great of a father he is through his true emotion and obvious love for his child.  I have so much respect for this guy it’s unbelievable.  You have to go with your heart, and his heart was with his child.  I have no doubt that Tony will find a terrific woman to spend his life with :) Once again, Emily carries herself with patience and class as she respectfully lets Tony go home.

Sean getting the rose was a total highlight for me.  Even though I don’t see him and Emily together in the long run, it’s nice to hear a man speak so highly and maturely of love, children and family.

Highlight of the date?  Watching Emily’s girlfriends grill these guys.  Making these guys take their shirts off and act ridiculous was pretty hilarious to watch.  One of them even told Ostrich Egg guy that his egg was disgusting and continued to ask him if he fertilized it himself.  I’m basically in tears at this point.

I’m not a fan of the Peter Pan look going on here.  Let’s face it, Emily makes everything look great. That being said, she totally pulled it off but I don’t like the general design of the top.

Emily and Arie:  Dolly Parton has a huge set of personalities.

Emily takes Arie to Dollywood to meet Dolly Parton.  You know, just a typical first date.  Totally normal.  Emily is apparently Dolly’s biggest fan, so this is really neat to see. It’s so clearly obvious that Emily and Arie are going to make it far together.  They have such a wonderful thing going on right now.  Their passion for each other is undeniable!  I feel as though the two of them can be in a room with nothing but silence and have the most incredibly time.  I want to quickly address the recent news about Arie.  It’s not fair to judge someone on their past, especially when it’s posted on a gossip web site.  I started reading the article and never finished for two reasons.  It was really long and I have severe ADD, and also because you can’t believe everything you read.  Everyone is having a cow that he was at a party at the Playboy Mansion and hooked up.  Side note:  The Playboy Mansion isn’t what everyone thinks it is.  It’s pretty much just another nightclub in a mansion setting.  So what if he was there and met a girl? Such is life and living it.  Making mistakes and learning from them.

Cocktail Party:  Compromising. 

This photo is pretty much self explanatory.  Alessandro tells Emily he is an incestuous Gypsy who can’t even take care of a small pet.  I mean, all of that on top of his super sweet hair do and awkward accent with a lisp, Emily missed out on a great catch.  If you weren’t laughing hysterically during his limo exit, I feel like you are lacking in the humor department.  He stated he was shocked Emily sent him home after he pretty much told her that Ricki was a compromise.

Arie and Emily once again look like a hot, classy couple.  While he comforted her after her bizarre time with Alessandro, their chemistry was impeccable.  I don’t think I’ve seen anything more real that this scene right here.  He ran into her in the hallway, they had a real, un-produced conversation, and you can tell she is majorly falling for Arie just as much as he is falling for her.

Sean and Emily share a very sweet moment.  He had perfect timing to tell Emily how much he would embrace and love Ricki after the Alessandro incident.  He basically told Emily that he would love Ricki just as if she was his daughter.  He also said something very important:  That he knows he is ready to be a father, because his father showed him how through example for the past 28 years.  He brings up a great point.  No one is ready to be a parent until they actually are a parent.  Just because he doesn’t have kids of his own doesn’t mean that he can’t step in and give Ricki unconditional love.  It’s either in your heart or it’s not.  Sean is such a good guy.  I’m so, so impressed by him.  I don’t think he is the one for Emily, but I know he is the right one for someone and will have no problem finding her. Or him. You know, it’s 2012.

I’m happy Emily is finding so many connections with her guys, however, this show isn’t fair!  LOL I’m serious!  When I meet a guy and am into him right off the bat, I cut off my ties to all other guys.  If I had a wonderful moment and passionate kiss session with him, the last thing I would want to do is go smooch another guy in the same night.  That’s why this show is tough as a contender. It’s hard to be into someone as you watch them build the same relationship they have with you with several other people.  I feel like this is why the couples from this franchise that actually stay together are so strong, because they have already been through the worst.

Let’s break down this photo.  Michael needs to focus on rehabilitating his hair style.  Kalon needs less hair gel, less trendy glasses and less of a “Grinch” smile.  I don’t know why, but he just looks like he has bad breath.  Arie needs to just stay the same.

After the rose ceremony, Doug is literally falling asleep during the toast.  His face is saying, “Girlfriend, quit it with the speeches and let me go to bed.  I normally wake up at 6am every day and go to bed by 10pm because of my son.”

And there it is.  Just as I thought I couldn’t be more turned off to Minzillian accent Alessandro, he wore a polo here in the outtake.  I’m going to vomit.  I’m on a plane right now and the flight attend won’t let me crack a window.  Deep breaths.  WWAD (What Would Arie Do)

The Good:  Is it me, or does Ryan’s look this episode resemble David Levi Good?  

I love Ryan’s casual style.  A tailored suit over a V-neck t-shirt is one of the sexiest looks a man can wear.  GetzStyle Tip:  This look is super basic and easy to pull off.  In order to do it right, make sure to invest in a suit that is rich in fabric and specifically tailored toward your body.  The V-neck is crucial.  I know what you are thinking.  How can you mess up a V-neck?  Trust me, there are ways.  Since the V-neck is a focal point, it needs to be the right material and the “v” needs to hit in the right area.  Dome V-necks are super high cut and look ridiculous.  For a nice fitting V-neck at a reasonably cheap price, check out  If you buy them here, you are guaranteed to perfect this look.

Once again, Chris looks fantastic.  This charcoal grey, pinstriped suit over a pale purple button down and horizontal, multi-colored tie screams trend.

Alejandro perfected a VERY difficult look.  He pushed the envelope in style and passed with flying colors.  Or lack there of.  Combining a black suit, black shirt and black tie, he still managed to look trendy and put together.  He is so stinkin’ cute!  The earrings are still getting on my nerves, however.

The Bad:

While Emily’s dress is by NO means bad, I personally do not like the style.  I’ve never been a fan of the keyhole neckline.  Also, I feel like the dress didn’t fit her very well.  I will add that she did a great job mixing up her style by wearing black cowboy boots.  That’s one of the most interesting things about style…pairing stuff together that generally doesn’t work.  One of my favorite “looks” is partnering up an outfit with normal and original.

  1. I look forward to your blog- thanks for giving me another voyeuristic escape, Natalie.

    Ryan gives me the creeps. Has from night one. Yes, the notebook paper message was cute- but seems like a schtick from his bag of liners. Didn’t like how during a date he said he wanted to pursue because he was usually the one pursued. And I REALLY don’t like his comment about how he wouldn’t love-on her as much if she gained weight. Emily wants more kids. Pregnant women gain weight and have loose flab for months afterwards. period- in the mean time hormones are high, making this time one of the best for lovin’-on ;-)

  2. Great blog…you’re dead on all the way around, and pretty funny…love it! Ryan does look like David Good…a less hot version:) Also agreed on Emily’s dress…boobs look funny! Can’t wait for the next blog:)

    Comment by Victoria — May 31, 2012 @ 11:40 am

  3. Emily’s black boots to her rose ceremony dress were apparently because she had just been out on a sightseeing tour of the gypsy king’s vampire detectors in the woods ;)

    Comment by Mila — May 31, 2012 @ 11:55 am

  4. Natalie. Emily wasn’t wearing cowboy boots. If you read Chris’ blog, she was wearing combat boots (ONLY for a quick minute) because Alessandro took her to the woods to search for vampires. True story.

    Comment by Jenna — May 31, 2012 @ 12:18 pm

  5. I think that Alessandro’s comments got lost in translation. The English word Compromise and the Portuguese word compromisso are false cognates. The Portuguese word compromisso means commitment. It’s very possible that he meant that Ricki would be a commitment.

    Comment by Teddy — May 31, 2012 @ 1:17 pm

  6. Thank you for defending Arie! I’ve loved him since night 1 but then I started reading and hearing all these things and my heart broke. But I think you’re right… Everyone has a past and I bet the tabloids can make anything sounds convincing. Thanks for a great blog Natalie! Yours is truly my favorite!!

    Comment by Candice — May 31, 2012 @ 1:17 pm

  7. Luv your comments on Arie gossip. It was terribly written and I too stopped reading it after a few sentences. I also believe that no one should be judged esp after having just split with someone you’d been serious with. Arie seems so into Emily and I hope he doesn’t get terribly heart broken again if things don’t work out

    Comment by RHP — May 31, 2012 @ 1:32 pm

  8. Lovs your blogs! Always entertaining, Emily mentioned the army boots as she had to trek through the woods to see the crazy mans vampire stuff! Now I think it safe to say the Emily “dodged” a bullet there!

    Comment by Caroline — May 31, 2012 @ 2:29 pm

  9. <3 i think this is suffice on how much i adore your wit and blogs!

    Comment by Susan — May 31, 2012 @ 4:46 pm

  10. Where’s the article about Arie, I want to read it. thanks

    Comment by Melissa — May 31, 2012 @ 5:07 pm

  11. Natalie love your recap as always!!! No way Ryan looks like David Good. David Good is muy caliente!!! Ryan looks like Cro-Magnon Man.

    Comment by Cally — May 31, 2012 @ 7:44 pm

  12. Haha finally! I have been saying that Ryan reminds me of Dave Good since night one.

    Comment by Crystal — May 31, 2012 @ 8:14 pm

  13. First off, I am not a Ryan fan, he seems full of himself and overly confident about his standings in the show, BUT I think his comments did not have enough background behind them. He is a sports trainer, fitness is something that is very important to his career and his life. I think he meant that he would want them as a family to be healthy and in shape. And I think he made a joke without totally explaining his feelings about fitnes. Really I don’t know the guy and have no idea either way, but as a person who loves to run, and married to a man who loves sports, it’s important to us to carry that on to our children, by involving ourselves in family acitivities. Anyway, that’s just my two cents about that comment. But again, not a Ryan fan, I vote for Sean!

    Comment by Colleen — May 31, 2012 @ 8:43 pm

  14. Ryan does resemble David Good but he has a little face and a clutch cargo mouth.

    Comment by Bonnie — May 31, 2012 @ 9:08 pm

  15. The reason I don’t like Arie isn’t because of a Playboy Mansion party. Have you read Reality Steve? He has proof from the multiple younger women (19-22 years old) that Arie was dating while leaving to film the show. He also has text message proof that Arie was texting one of the girls while on the show.

    Emily deserves WAAAAAY better in my opinion.

    Team Sean or Jef all the way.

    Comment by Jennifer — June 1, 2012 @ 9:25 am

  16. Melissa – The article is at: : )

    Comment by Jennifer — June 1, 2012 @ 9:31 am

  17. As always, loved your post. I’m so happy you gave Alejandro the style credit (and let’s be honest, the cutie credit) that he deserves! While Emily obviously won’t pick him, I look forward to seeing his face every week!

    Comment by Gabby — June 1, 2012 @ 8:16 pm

  18. natalie you should learn how to speak whole sentences when you are hosting your video… are very loud on your microphone, and other people are very low which calls for constant volume adjustment. learn how to speak slow, and clear and low no need to scream and mumble, unless you are a mumbler like ali fedotowsky, and kasey kahl.
    either get with the show or stop doing it, making excuses every week you only have 15 minutes is telling people you can’t be bothered.

    Comment by Jen — June 2, 2012 @ 2:07 am

  19. What does this mean, “partnering an outfit with normal and original.” It just sounds weird. I know you are not a very experienced writer, but building your vocabulary would be a decent thing to to do. This blog isn’t that insightful. You’re definitely fun to watch on Reality TV, and very likeable, but it just seems like you are trying way too hard with this blog venture.

    Comment by Sasha — June 2, 2012 @ 4:00 pm

  20. Jane: Thanks! And yes, I completely agree…Ryan is an idiot. Just wait until this Monday….you will want to throw things at the TV!

    Victoria: Sweet, thanks! Yes, Emily can wear clothes well, but women with large breasts have to be careful or they look off!

    Mila and Jenna: That totally makes sense! Regardless, I was totally feeling the combat boots with the dress:) Then again, I push the envelope in fashion a lil too far sometimes:)

    Colleen: I was beginning to think the same thoughts, but then I watched next weeks episode…..oh boy, you aren’t going to like his comments this week!

    Bonnie: Clutch cargo mouth. I am dying! So freaking funny!

    Jennifer: That’s weird about the texting….hmmmmm….. I totally adore Jef as well:)

    Gabby: He is so adorable, right?! I just wanna squeeze him!

    Jen: Thanks for watching my webisode:)

    Sasha: I actually am not trying hard at all. I barely have time to actually finish it, much less focus on making it perfect! Regardless, thank you for the compliments about me being fun:)
    Candice and RHP: You are both exactly right. Everyone has a past. Jeeez I can’t even imagine if every guy i’ve dated was thrown in a tabloid. I can tell Arie is a sweet guy:) If he doesn’t end up with Emily, he would make a phenomenal, desirable bachelor! In my opinion, he would be the best bachelor yet:)

    Caroline: LOL! Yes, she dodged a bullet and getting cheated on with relatives hahahaha! Thanks girl!

    Susan: You are awesome:) Thank you so much!

    Melissa: Apparently on Reality Steve’s website

    Cally: Cro-Magnon man- hahahaha! That literally just made me laugh out loud! Yes, Ryan is nowhere near Dave Good’s level:)

    Crystal: Something looks the same! Maybe the beard and eyes? hahaha
    Teddy: If that’s the case, I feel bad for him!

    Comment by Natalie Getz — June 2, 2012 @ 9:48 pm

  21. Wow!

    It’s very interesting looking at someone else’s perspective on things and I like it! Definitely an awesome job done!

    Comment by Marklin — June 3, 2012 @ 1:15 pm

  22. Natalie I agree with you. Ryan does remind me of Dave Good.
    Not really digging Emily’s style choices. Why is she wearing boots with that gold dress? Yikes!

    Comment by Maria C — June 4, 2012 @ 2:32 am

  23. Natalie: Just reading your blog for the first time, and I didn’t disagree with anything you wrote. Funny, I also thought Emily’s gold dress was not flattering. (It sure looked expensive, but just didn’t do anything for her)…but your take on all the men is dead on. Look forward to your next blog!

    Comment by Rosemary — June 4, 2012 @ 3:44 am

  24. Nat,…..GREAT Blog, hunny!…..ya know, the more i think about it….the REAL PROBLEm with ARie, in my opinion….is NOT the dating young girls, NOt the playboy mansion, and Certainly NOT dating a woman with 2 children….BUT the PROBLEM IS the fact, that that woman, is NOt only apart of the show, but (correct me if i’m wrong) is the day to day “handler/go-to girl” for Emily!?… that not the case!?….(I”M Trying NOT to read any spoilers…but that has gotten to me somehow, that his EX is the main girl that coaches and advises Emily!??)….if this is TRUE….UGGGG!….NOT only is this a Total Deception by the Network, but this Woman should be ASHAMEd of herself if she has NOT told Emily herself…..and ARIE, what a loser, if he held that info from her, as well…..if i were EM, and found this out AFTER i picked him… would be a DEAL Breaker for SURE!…GOSH, and how could she EVER look at that Producer again or any of the people who knew about it!….it seems QUite Unethical to keep this a SECRET on ANYBodys part…..(esp knowing that her issues w/ Brad stemmed from secrets and betrayals…aka baggage!)……this should have been “put on the proverbial TABLE ” from jump street!……..then she could talk to “Cassie” in a manner of “KNOWING” …….not a dumbass, w/ NO clue that her “main trustee” was “bo&*ing her Man!…….EWWW!……THAt, my friend….IS THE PRoBLEM w ARIE!!……..i sure hope she gets ALL the info she needs before making a final decision!………….on a side note….I”m Still digging Sean !….he seems MOST capable of putting the “celebrity” aside….AFTER the show……….which is usually the DEMISE of these young couples!…..Commitment is hard enough without “NEW Found ATTention” and False adoration after the show…, etc……..i’m kinda upset that ABC would allow this to happen!?…..(without informing Emily…..!!)…kinda making a fool out of her,no?…….jeeeeese!…….the more i think about it….the more confused i get!….OH well, we will see!?…..this girl is a Sweetie, and seems to GENUINLy want a Sincere Relationship!…?……GOOD LUCK Miss EMily!!……(YOu are such a DOLL!)…..PS….Nat, LOVE the BLOG, as usual!….keep up the GREAT work!!! …xoxo……PS….sorry for grammar mistakes, etc….going 67mph!!….XO

  25. “On a good note, Michael is giving me ideas of how I’m going to wear my hair tomorrow”

    Way to turn lemons into lemonade, Natalie. I’m wearing my hair like that, too.

    Comment by Possessionista — June 4, 2012 @ 3:15 pm

  26. Just a note about Alessandro….apparently something along the lines of “comprimisso” translates to commitment in English so he was actually trying to tell Emily that he considered it to be a commitment, not a compromise as it seemed. (Not that he is a great catch or anything…but I think that is why he was so surprised to be let go. He was insistent that there wasn’t a language issue, when there apparently was. Obviously the fact that he is also a gypsy-vampire hunter-dated his 3rd cousin-has one night stands kind of guy doesn’t go over too well despite this language confusion.

    Comment by andrea — June 5, 2012 @ 1:11 am

  27. Getting back to, you know, the fashion, first you say above that you liked her green striped t, and then you said you didn’t. Was there supposed to be a different pic in there? I thought all her casual outfits were bad, short shorts too short, & not balanced with unflattering tops. I also notice that just like last week, you are ignoring most of her outfits! Admit it, Natalie, you don’t like her fashion at all! (which is okay with me.)

    Comment by Allissa — June 5, 2012 @ 1:59 am

  28. Cracking up at you saying Kalon looks like he has bad breath!HA I said the same thing, I just assumed that was me being mean but you have confirmed it must be true…

    Comment by Lindsey — June 5, 2012 @ 9:24 am

  29. Ryan does have a little face. Way too small for his head

    Comment by Caitlin the iPhone — June 9, 2012 @ 5:00 pm

  30. I read your blog from this week’s show, and it was dead on. Could not find anything to disagree with! :)

    Comment by Rosemary — June 27, 2012 @ 3:26 pm

  31. What’s up, I check your blog like every week. Your humoristic style is awesome, keep it up!
