Haven't had a chance to post in the show discussion and just wanted to say that I did not care for Emily during Brad's season and she has surprised me with being less boring than I originally thought she would be. I have enjoyed the unpredictable dates that have taken place in the Charlotte area. I thought last night's show was very telling in the fact that it was very clear to see who she really liked. I did not care for Ryan from the beginning and was surprised that she kept him after making that comment. I guess he won't be on much longer judging from the previews. I do like Arie, Jef, Sean, Chris and Doug. We got to see a bit more of Travis, but I don't see her keeping him all that long. Her letting go of Allesandro last night was expected as he was a jerk. Even worse when you saw what he had said to her friends. I was not surprised at her letting Stevie go. I am not sure why Tony came on the show as he clearly missed his son, but he should have known that from the beginning and I think a 5 year old would not be impacted for life as long as he was being well taken care of at home which I am sure he was.
The guys who are still a mystery to me are the ones she has kept, but we have not seen a lot of. I can't even comment on them as I don't remember her spending much time talking with them at the cocktail parties. Those would include Alejandro, Michael, Kyle and John. May have missed a few, but hope we do get to see some of them rather than just have her eliminate them at the Rose ceremony. I almost forgot Charlie from last week's show and while I think he is very nice, not sure if he would be Emily's type. As I type this I am not sure what Emily's type is, but she sure was smitten with Arie. I think so far I like him, but thought he definitely received a lot of air time in lieu of maybe giving some of the others a chance. I also thought she really liked Chris and I really liked their date even if half of Charlotte was lined up to watch. When she went to Dolly Wood with Arie I loved it as I love Dolly Parton. The song she wrote for them was cute, but when she sang the song she wrote for her husband all I can say is it definitely tugged at my heart.
Now I have to catch up on how the rest of you are thinking about this batch of guys. I love that they are going to Bermuda next as it is a favorite of mine. I went there on a cruise a long time ago on the ship that was later used for the show the Love Boat. Don't know how many of you remember that show, but it was always special for me because it was the same ship that I went on. Just a couple of years ago I got to go back on another cruise and while it is still beautiful I could not believe how much traffic there is compared to years ago. I have to say I enjoy Emily as the Bachelorette as I admit to being a sap when it comes to someone finding love. I hope she does.
