Cocktail Partay Tiiiime! Sean doesn’t seem too nervous. He tells us there are women he hasn’t spent enough time with, and he needs to get that straightened out, but judging from his attitude, I think he’s already got this week figured out.
First to be pulled aside is one-armed Sarah. He takes her out front and a limo pulls up for her. She starts freaking out, because that usually only means one thing, and he’s being a little mean by not clarifying the situation. But he makes up for it by truly giving her the best surprise in this show’s storied history: her doggy! Her dog is there! This is so awesome! And I’m a dork and I want to know all the logistics: did the dog fly with one of her friends to LA, and if so where is that friend? Or did the dog drive? Does she only get ten minutes with her dog and then she has to say goodbye, or does she get to keep him? I can’t take not knowing the answers to these incredibly important questions!
Let’s be real. I would totally give Leo the rose.
ThatBitchTierra gets her some SeanTime™ and actually asks him about himself, which to her credit, is not something too many of the others are doing. Desiree jumps over and steals Sean away. Tierra is pissed, because every time she’s gotten one-on-one time, she has been interrupted, and she’s not used to not getting what she wants. Desiree barely has time to kiss him twice before Tierra steals him back. He tells Des he’ll be right back, and she says she’ll wait right there. When I was eight years old, my childhood best friend Shannon and I would steal each other’s Barbies like this. I guess when the Bachelor is the closest possible human approximation to a Ken doll, this is what happens.
Now all the other bachelorettes are pissed that she’s monopolizing him for a second time, when many girls haven’t gotten a first chance. It becomes a free-for-all, and Sean can’t sit down for ten seconds before someone else steals him. I think he’s enjoying this a little too much; he does, after all, have the ability to say something along the lines of, “I’m sorry Kristy, I’ll be with you in five minutes. I’m talking to Jackie right now.”
Kacie especially needs one-on-one time with Sean, because of the way she royally screwed up at the group date by bringing up drama that in no way involved her. She opens up by apologizing to Sean for bringing up the drama. He admits to her that their relationship took a couple steps backwards at the group date, but before he can expand on that thought, their conversation gets crashed by two others, including AL, who already has a rose. File that under my theory of her being just as bad as Tierra and Amanda, by the way.
Kacie. Honey. You knew there was a good chance you were going home tonight, and this is what you chose to wear? Did you have pressing plans to SCUBA after the rose ceremony?
