As you know, I missed The Bachelorette this week, but thanks to my perseverance, dedication and lack of a real life, I've pieced together the episode.
Jill and the boys are still in Canada, but his time, they're taking a train from Vancouver to Banff, Alberta. FYI, that train ride offers exquisite and rarely enjoyed views of Canada. She's got to slice three guys from the crew.
Sadly, the first one to go is Robby (you know how I feel about -y and -ie names on a full grown man) who basically tells Jill he's fucked up. She lets him off the train. Somewhere in the wilderness. Nice.
Wes, the stoned, tatted up country singer basically comes clean. Not with Jill, though. With the viewer. He admits that he "needs to sell records..." and "...Jill is wrapped around my finger..." Fucker.
Yet, he stays.
Tanner on the other hand, gets the boot. The foot fetish freak can't even concentrate on a conversation the moment the girl's toes are visible. Get a grip, man!
There are two things about Tanner and this week's episode that I wished I got to see. When he was sent home, he did it with an f-bomb. That, and at some point he strips down to his boxers and Jilly is impressed by his "huge package."
Michael, the 25 year old break dancing jokester gets to stay even though he basically says that there's no physical chemistry between him and Jill.
In my book, that would get you a one way ticket to the curb, but apparently Jill likes a challenge. Or is it that she likes guys who are challenged? I'll have to figure that one out.
So one guy still has to get cut.
You've got a opportunistic cheater (Wes), a dorky dude who thinks you're physically repulsive (Michael), a dude that you might not have anything in common except a physical connection (Kiptyn) , a nice guy with nasty teeth that may as well be invisible (Jesse) and a neurotic who admits that she's not his type (Reid).
So what do you do? Why, you gut the gorgeous, sweet, considerate airline pilot because he's "too intense."
I knew Jake wasn't going to make it. Maybe he'll be the next Bachelor?
Sidebar: on The Bachelorette blog, she talks about filming during the Canadian winter and calls herself "a real Eskimo."
For those of you who don't know, "eskimo" is a word that is considered inappropriate, politically incorrect and is no longer used in Canada. The proper term is "inuit."
