Boy were they right!!!
Last night, the Bachelor hit the ground running with a great season opener. The Bachelor is adorable, British, and very grounded (or so it seems right now). I am usually able to tell if a Bachelor is all that. Dr. Travis? UH HUH! "Prince" Lorenzo? Not so much. Matt Grant impressed me. However, even though he's British (and from my own personal experience knowing European guys), he'll drink alcohol like a fish. But I love this guy.
I must say that he gave his first impression rose to the right girl, Amanda R. I really like her! She reminds me of someone, but I can't exactly place it. Robin, the girl who had lived in London awhile and spoke some French was cute too. She grew on me. Noelle, the photographer with fake boobs, seemed surprisingly genuine. I was surprised that he let the Texas girl go, because he thought she was so stunning coming out of the limo. I'm still trying to decide how I feel about Carri (with the blonde-bob hairdo). Speaking of haridos, is it just me, or do most of the girls have really short hair this season? Also a surprise: the two girls (Ashlee and Michelle) that showed their musical talents through the guitar and clarinet (can we say awkward?) got roses. But I guess it proves that he's not necessarily looking for a trashy hoochie.
Which is a perfect lead-in to....
As in, drunk-as-a-skunk, wearing 80's inspired electric blue dress, cussing like a sailor, dumb as a board, handing Matt her panties Stacey.
People, she was a trip. I have watched every Bachelor season (except maybe one?), and this girl was amazingly terrible. She got wasted, was mumbling sentences no one understood, and as a last resort, handed Matt a pair of panties. Thankfully, he was just as disgusted as the rest of America.
This is looking like a GOOD season!
DWTS put on a good show as well. I was impressed with the potential of Mario (the singer), Cristian (the Hispanic actor), and Jason(the hot athlete). Tonight we watch the girls dance, and I have high hopes for Marlee (she is so cute, and the deaf have always been near to my heart anyway), and Kristi (I was obsessed with figure skating when she was in her prime). I think Priscilla is riding the fence right now on how she feels about the show. On the opener last night, she looked like "Am I too cool for this? Was this a good idea? Or should I just cheese it up and love it?" She'll be interesting to watch. And her plastic surgery would've been a success if she hadn't had those cheek implants. But ANYWAY...good season ahead!
Ok, ok, I'll stop about TV. Mom and I had lunch today at Basil's and it was delicious! It was so good to spend time with her. Tonight we've got DWTS of course, and Idol. You know I'll post my thoughts on those shows! haha! Hope everyone is having a great day.
