You did a great job summing it up. thxOriginally Posted by cafegirl;2595087;So agree, sparkyanna, especially the Kelly Clarkson look alike. All night when she spoke I kept thinking Kelly C.. but was rather appalled at how much trash she was talking. We know the producers interviewing them egg them on, but seriously, she didn't have to continue the slash campaign on Jenni. Just showed petty jealousy which is extremely unattractive!
Funny, that the ones shown in the best light were rather obviously, DeAnna, Jenni, Bettina, Sarah and practically missing in action was Kristi, who ended up getting the first rose!! I was practically asking, was she even there tonight??
Totally agree that Solisa is the drama, ratings girl that Fleiss loves so dearly! Some of the others just made me grimice.
A few notable "aww" moments, were the gentle brushing back a strand of DeAnna's hair on their 1/1 and the look they gave each other before girl's interupted that said, from Brad, I see you want to kiss me and believe me I want that too.............but the girls arrive (obviously prompted by the producers) to interupt!! It made it a little cliff hanging 2nd chapter in their romance.
Jenni, despite her laugh, which obviously Brad loves, is rather infectious with some genuine charm and I felt that Brad at this point, would like for over half of the girls to depart so he can spend more time with Jenni, along with at least four others.
Bettina's time was a little surprising. I really thought they'd show her teaching Brad how to surf a bit, because if you caught it in the background they showed Bettina being the one surfing in the background AND wiping out! No, time on the beach.. hmm. What I found touching about them was Brad saying he was looking forward to seeing her all day and his real interest in her and wanting to make her feel comfortable when he sensed how upset she was during their 1/1 time (cocktail party), He didn't know what was upsetting her, but was trying to make her feel better.
The little we saw of Sarah with Brad, showed an interest, but not a high level. i was rather surprised she got the rose, but liked her and felt she was one of the sincere ones there.
Where was Sheena, other than a few PI times, she wasn't shown at all w/ Brad.
Stephy, might intrigue him because of her "worldly travel and experience. She's a sense of mystery wrapped with someone who is bold and enjoys having a good time. No chemistry shown. He might have enjoyed her doing the body shot, but definitely seemed a bit uncomfortable.
McCarten.............. loved his honesty about her kiss .. she's filler, I'm sure!
Lindsey, did we even see them talk?
Hilary is still someone with a fun spirit, but I think she was being prodded by producers to trash the girls and Jade doesn't seem to be the best influence on her! She and Brad did seem very touchy feely with each other on their 1/1, so that scored points for her. I still like her, but hopes she drops the jealousy thing.
And finally, our bachelor, Brad. I still love this guy.. He's one of the most honest ones we've had. I like that he tells it like it is (to us) and pretty much is not leading the girls on. Of course, this is early in the game, but again, the guy doesn't have a poker face, so it's pretty easy to see who he likes and who he tolerates and who, he probably wishes he could ditch, but is arm-twisted to keep. What makes him charming to me, is that he's not a smooth talker or a one liner, but trying very hard to be a gentleman. I like that he took the initiative to show who he likes so far.
I was thinking today, that this season is not getting me very excited despite my early high hopes, but I just like Brad and can see him with a couple of the girls in a real life relationship, plus I was entertained tonight. so thumbs up for me!
