The Bachelor

Last week was the season premier episode of the new bachelor- Matt Grant.
He started with 25 women, and made a few random choices, but got rid of 10 women making it 15 women left- and now it's on!

The first date box arrives, and the girls are going to a fashion show with Matt (poor guy- an 8 woman date sounds great in theory- but in application- MEOW!)
First surprise- the women are the ones putting on the show.
Matt has to give a rose on the date...
The women are all teased and combed and walk down the runway, some looking better than others...
Holly moon walked down the catwalk!!!
Amanda one upped her bu taking off her shirt- no worries though, she had a gold lame bikini top on underneath...
Matt then took the girls to a penthouse to party it up, and allow him to spend one on one time with each girl.
Marshanna- seriously, I don't like this girl- her attitude, the way she talks to everyone else... she even kind of corners Matt on inter-racial dating and 'where he stands on it' which is so dumb- obviously he's okay with it- HE KEPT YOU!
Michelle P. from Syracuse (the Administrative Assistant) pulled Matt aside and SANG to him- not well either. Why do these women keep coming on the show and singing? They always get dropped for their efforts!
Ashlee (the Jewel doppelganger) go the first kiss- she pushed hard for it too!
... and earned the date rose for her efforts! She was smug about it with all the other girls too- and she showed it off to everyone at the house too! The girls called her out on the first kiss too... drama begins!

Second date box arrives- and it's a Vegas date! Sounds like so much fun!!!
They go to Paris (pretty casino) and Shayne comments to the camera that even though she's been to Vegas 'like a million times before; she is glad to be here with Matt... DIVA!
Each girl gets 1000 in chips and the deal is whoever has the most money at the end of the game gets a one on one date with Matt. (The smart girl would just keep her money in her pocket and have a fun time!)
Shayne bet everything on one hand, whereas Robin pulled Matt aside and told him she wouldn't gamble on him and just watched. Shayne lost it all on one hand...
Kelly had $2100 in chips so she won the date...
She got to eat alone with Matt and she's kinda drunk and kinda blabbering on... and gets kinda loud as the night progresses.
Shayne starts to short circuit on the whole concept of the other girls fighting for the same guy- and she picks a fight with Matt about it, which is dumb on her part... Matt admits to the camera that she is so attractive 'probably more than his level' but that her drama is a little much for him, and a bit of a turn off... bye bye Shayne?

Matt takes them up to the Napoleon Suite, and Shayne keeps complaining to the camera about how tough it is... Matt takes Chelsea aside and she obviously says a lot of things that Matt vibes with (she is edging higher up on my favorite list).

Robin is sitting on Matt's lap, playing the piano, and the camera catches Matt and Shayne eyeing each other (it's weird).
Erin S (the hot dog vendor from Venice) is actually also a pretty cool girl...

Matt gives Chelsea the rose (yay) and they get alone time and meander off alone to talk and get to know each other a little better (that means kissing in Bachelor land).... after they leave, Shayne tells the camera she isn't having any fun, she's used to getting tons of roses and maybe this isn't for her, and she goes to the bathroom and cries to another blond (can't remember which) but in the end decides she will stay because she feels something for Matt...

Robin gets busted by the other girls for kissing Matt... Marshanna makes a funny comment about how she has great lips that are waiting for kissing...and then on her one on one time with Matt they dance (no music) and he doesn't kiss her because he sees the other girls watching from the window.

Dum Dum Dum
Rose Ceremony night...Enough singing already! A blond corners him and starts busting out the opera- 'Summertime, and the living is easy...' (NOT AN OPERA SONG!)

Amanda, my favorite so far, gets the hiccups every time she gets nervous, and is worried she'll have the hiccups in front of Matt. She pulls him onto the floor and gets him to do a Soulja Boy dance!!!

Shayne (wearing a huge white flower headband thing on her head) tells Matt she is sorry about their tiff last night and that she is okay now- and he admits that he might have given her a harder time because of her acting background and who her family is... and they agree that they are there to find love and she is there for him and nothing else...

15 women down to 12...

Chelsea and Ashlee are safe
the other 10 are:



Erin S.

Amanda (who hiccups!)

Kelly (WHY?)



Marshanna (WHY again?!?)


Shayne (who totally thought she was out!)
Yes! The bad singers are gone... ladies! Don't sing!!! You will always get sent home!!!
