I liked the shorter show, although the cocktail party did feel rushed (it always does, though).
Emily does look different-I think it's just a makeup change. Her eyes look smaller and beadier than than they did on Brad's show. She doesnt appear to me to have had any 'work' done since then.
I'm of two minds about Emily. I dont think she's had much education and doesnt have much to offer in the way of intellectual conversation about anything. But I've known women like her, who were a e limited that way but adored their husbands and children, made wonderful, stable homes for their families, and were loving and kind to everyone. I've known a lot of smart, mean women who make life miserable for everybody around them. I can identify with Emily wanting to move on to a husband and more children; sure, she's got time but she's ready now. Nothing wrong with that.
I have to admit that I wasnt thrilled with the choice of Emily for Bachelorette, but I was smiling the whole time she was meeting the men. I expect beautiful women to just be naturally cool and in control, but she was visibly nervous and putting up a good front.
