It does seem like the guys are ganging up on Kalon, and he is definitely the chosen villian for this season. However, I am willing to bet that the producers are egging it along when they get the guys in from of the camera and ask them questions about Kalon. So, add that to his entrance in a helicopter, and what we get is manufactured drama.
I thought that Ryan seems like a really nice and sweet guy, but I did think that the 6-page letter was a bit too much too soon. And I think that once he saw Tony walk up to get some time with Emily, he should have told her that she could read the letter later on and not take up more of her time. Ryan now is being perceived in a different light with the guys, which could cause some tension in the house. I don't think that that was his intention, but Emily did apologize to some of the guys that she did not get to spend time with right before the rose ceremony. So, that 15 - 20 minutes that it took for her to read that letter did deprive some guys of a chance to talk to Emily...not a good move on Ryan's part.
I was also surprised that Emily picked Joe for a one-on-one, over all of the other guys there. I really thought that Arie would have gotten a one-on-one this week, and he didn't even get a date!! But the previews seem to indicate that he does get alone time with Emily next week, possibly a one-on-one date.
