blogging the bach...19.1

another season of the bachelor started last night. i don't watch tv really ever, but i am obsessed with the bachelor. come back every tuesday for my weekly bach caps. i don't usually post straight recaps.  
i love all the bach posts and commentary so make sure to link up if you post. i'm looking for co-hosts so comment or email me if you're interested. 
one final thing before we get started on week 1. spoilers are no fun. please don't post them.

the show was 3 freaking hours. i love the bach, but that's a lot of tv. it easily could have been condensed to 2.

intro to chris, his family, and his farm wife
photo shoot (how awkward but when you're the bachelor i guess you have to get used to it. i am doing a little better now, but fashion photo shoots for this blog make me feel all kinds of awkward)
new shirtless bachelor???
sean and catherine
update on life
bachelor babies- "on the radar"
we get a recap of his bach experience-good plug for his book-preorder to hear all the bach scoop

  2. I was kind of surprised that he kept Tara and Ashley, but I guess we need a couple of crazies on the show and it's not always obvious to the Bachelor from the beginning who those are (at least that's what Shawn says in his blog post about it...) Seriously though, Ashley was a little strange when she got out of the limo, her walk from the limo to Chris and her facial expressions just made me uncomfortable and then she goes all onion and random fruit on the camera.

    I love that Chris Harrison just comes out and asks people things. The baby question for one. The "when are you getting married one" is funny to me that's it's so prying and that they skirt around the answer. I guess I'm used to Mormon culture where we can tell you our wedding date from the second we get engaged. ;) Joe was around when Nikki came on and he goes, "She broke up with that last guy?" He remembers that season well... I was very verbal about my feelings toward Juan Pablo on that one. I just said, "Yeah, the one guy from the M&M commercials" and he made some comment about it, I can't remember what. Watching Nikki last night and remembering Juan Pablo, I'm definitely glad that they aren't together :P Maybe she'll be on Bachelor in Paradise ;)

  3. I really don't know what I think of this season... I don't think I am a huge fan of just one girl right now.. but we shall see.. I just want to know what happens in that tent later in the season!!

  4. These season looks like it is going to be filled with some crazy drama -- or at least a lot of tears. I definitely am a fan of Britt, Ashley I, and Tracy. I couldn't believe he gave roses to Tara and Ashley S. I guess he likes to give a second chance and that he missed Ashley's inner freak come out.

  5. Britt is my favorite. Other than the awkward long cry-hug, she seems really fun and cute.
