With the 2 on 1 date wrapped up Emily finds a few free moments to check in with the blonde 7 year old that the state says belongs to her. Turns our Ricki’s been working on her sight words in Bermuda,words like elimination rose, Gay Mormon Jef, and alive race car driver. No they are words like the, their, because…whatever this is boring. Also, turns out Emily brought along a tutor for Ricki on this world tour of finding mommy a husband who won’t die or be a total jerk off, because we catch a glimpse of said tutor. I guess Emily figures if she can’t be skinny, she can be smart, not bad.
It’s elimination time bitches and the house of Bachelorette is in disarray. You see earlier in the week bachelor Doug, who I think views himself as team captain made an off hand comment about younger guys being eliminated. This hurt the 25 years young Chris aka age aint nothin but a number man, Chris confronts Doug and there is no time better than the rose ceremony, tensions are high between these two. Doug has a mean streak, and in Emily’s eyes Chris is 12 so who cares, they aren’t going to win. Emily checks in with Alejandro who more than likely got a nose job in this down time this week because his nose is looking strange and he had a lot of time on his hands because he didn’t go on ANY dates in Bermuda. Emily worries that Alejandro and his 24 years of not having an accent are just too young for her and Ricki, but he swears he is ready to step up and be a father. Ryan meanwhile contemplates his fate in front of the fire with Michael, he’s the rehab counselor slash guy with a better ponytail than Emily tonight. Ryan says he likes being on the show, but feels he is called to something bigger and better. He ponders if ABC would be interested in a Bachelor: Augusta edition, starring him, I can answer that for you, NO. Chris meanwhile rats out Doug for his YOU MAD BRO attitude in the house, and Emily is confused because Doug has seemed so great so far. Emily knows she has a hard decision to make so she stares down the framed photos of the guys that Harrison has set up for her. This is helpful since she is probably still a bit hazy on names.
Finally Emily and Harrison join forces to send some guys packing. Now remember, Doug, Jef, and John are ALL safe. Emily gives out roses to: Sean, Arie, Travis (?!?!?), Chris, Ryan, Kallon, and ALEJANDRO. I didn’t see that last one coming and let’s be honest neither did Alejandro. That means Michael and Charlie are off. Michael sheds a few tears as he wonders of what could have been and if he will ever fall in love, I’m sure he will recover quickly with a few bong rips and a night on the town in Bermuda. Charlie meanwhile doesn’t seem fazed to be kicked off, obviously he used up his tears and emotions in mourning the loss of the sailing race.
We are down to 11 guys now and next week Harrison is upping the ante, we are going to LONDON TOWN. I can only imagine that this is to give Emily that full lesson in British history that she so deserves. Let’s DRINK every time there is a London 2012 reference, we get it ABC. And every time Ryan scoots off to try and find a Middleton.
