The episode starts out by showing Emily and Ricki meet up with some family and friends. I said it in my post last week, but that is awesome that they filmed in her hometown so she gets to be with her daughter. Next the guys found out that Ryan was the first one chosen to go on a date with Emily. Some guys will go on individual dates and others will be on group dates. And for some guys, it may be their first and last date with Emily. Others will get a rose and be safe and then there will be some that don’t get a date at all.
Ha…Ryan was expecting some big, glamorous date with Emily. And all they did was bring in groceries and bake cookies. She even put an apron on him. I thought that was a great idea for a date. That’s going to be what Emily’s husband is going to be doing every day. I loved that she didn’t introduce Ryan to her daughter. He made a good point that she shouldn’t be introducing every guy to her daughter. Maybe later on in the competition when they’re down to maybe 2 or 3, maybe that’s when she will introduce Ricki to the guys left. At the end of the date, Ryan got a rose and is safe this week!
Wow…the group date is Emily with 13 guys! That is a lot of guys! They are going to be doing some performing and most of the guys don’t seem to excited about that. But when they see Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, that gets them excited! Fuzzy Bear shows up then and tells a few of the guys that they are going to be doing some stand-up comedy. Charlie is terrified of public speaking so he went to talk to Emily about not doing that. She totally understood that and allowed him to switch to the singing group. Then it was time for the show to begin. I thought that was really great. The proceeds from the show went to charity so it was for a great cause! At one point during the show, Emily brought her daughter up on the stage as Kermit and Miss Piggy sang “Rainbow Connection”. At the end of the night, once Emily got to talk to some of the guys individually, the rose went to Jef.
The next date she has was an individual date with Joe. They got into a plane and headed to Emily’s home state, West Virginia. When Emily is on the dates, they go back to the house sometimes and show the guys talking while the other guy is on the date. I always think that is great seeing the guys interact with each other. And throughout this episode, there is one guy that sticks out to me that I really don’t like…Kalon. Back to the date…they spent the day at a fancy hotel that Emily used to visit with her family. They did a little swimming then later they got dressed up and had a fancy meal. After talking to him some and getting to know him a little better, she realizes that she doesn’t see how he fits into her life and how she fits into his. So Joe is the first guy to leave this week.
The guys got one last chance to get to talk to Emily and make sure they make a connection with her so they can get a rose at the rose ceremony. Well, looks like Kalon is going to be there for at least another week. I bet the other guys are not too excited about that. The 2 guys who did not get a rose were Aaron and Kyle.
And that ends another episode of the Bachelorette. Next week it looks like they go to a theme park and Dolly Parton surprises Emily and one of the guys. I’m looking forward to that! Leave me your comments and let me know what you thought of this weeks show.
