Not a majorly exciting show, except for that Jill had the "hometown" dates and got to meet the boys' families. Oh, and TWO former bachelors show up!!
The families seemed pretty hokey except for Kiptyn's. Clearly, they have money and Jill is intimidated right from the start. They speak different languages, they're well educated, well traveled blah, blah, blah.
While they make a joke at Jill's expense by putting yellow Caution tape around the hot tub but she puts them in their place by saying, "That's not gonna stop me!" Way to go, my Canadian floozy!
Worse still, they test her food and wine skills. WTF? Since when does that matter? "Oh, you say you have a raging case of syphilis and crippling hammer toes run in your family? --- but Kip! She picked the best Yquem Sauternes to go with the foie gras! Marry her!"
Please. Not to mention that Kip's mom is like a Stepford version of Alexis Morrell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan.
Let's move onto Wes aka WTF ARE The Right Reasons??? This dude is fucking around. His bedroom eyes, tatted up arms, annoying twanging guitar, constantly stoned face, bad boy shtick is running thin.
Last week's cast off, Captain Jake of Loverman Airlines swooped into Austin to warn Jill that Wes was in fact the suitor with the girlfriend, some skank by the name of Laurel. After many tears (including his own!), Jill decides to follow her gut (mistake) and go ahead and meet Wes' family -- who are surprisingly not anywhere as redneck as he is. Either these ladies were actors or -- well, that's it. They don't even know him, I'm sure.
The only other "surprise" of the night was The Return Of Ed. Which wasn't really a surprise since the whole world predicted he'd be back. Anyway, here's the short version: he comes back; asks for another chance; Jill hems and haws; says okay even though she thinks it might not be fair to the guys; she gives him a rose anyway.
Say au revoir to Michael and Jesse. Michael's age (25) has been an issue and Jill uses it as her reason for letting him go, sure that he's not ready for a commitment despite protestations to the contrary. Pesonally, I think it's the identical twin switcheroo he tried out on her -- that she figured out in about 4.4 seconds.
Jesse can thank his a-hole brother for sealing his fate. After asking, "Have you guys been naked together yet? --answer: no -- he tells her that Jesse is "an emotional ice cube near impossible to crack." Ah, siblings. Of course, it could have been the whole naked question. What? Did he want to compare notes???
On a final note, as I mentioned above, Jake had himself some tears after confronting Wes about Laurel. He stood in the hotel hallway bawling his eyes out on a railing.
Something like 96% of viewers want him to be chosen as the next Bachelor.
Which means I'll have to watch because he might be even hotter than Jason!
