The Bachelor - Season 17

The Bachelor // ABC // Mondays @ 8 PM, I guess?

. . .

The only reason I started this thread is so I could ask "hey, remember that time a Bachelor contestant came over to my house and I gave her a FryDaddy?"

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

I am excited for tonight too, I looked at the girls over at reality Steve, and one of them I think her name is Leslie works for democratic lobbyist firm. I hope she is the first to go given how much liberals write about hating The Bachelor calling it anti-feminist.

Not bad, I like your girl in the first picture, the yoga instructor. The chick from denver who wihined about being in love twice then was giddy when she found out the bachelor would be Shaun looks like the crazy one this season. Seemed really weird the way he handed out roses.

You can see the effects of the lawsuit: 4 or 5 black chicks and an amputee.

I thought the same thing!

Lots of good looking chicks this time though. I like the Yoga chick, Adam Tyner. I'll bet she's got an amazing body!

I have to tune in just to see that. Like a Polar Bear on a tropical island.

What? No down's syndrome or pre-op transexual contestants?

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

This season has really been good between the drama of Tierra and the girls' hatred of her. Even better than that chick from the last season.

at having them polar bear club. I don't blame Selma. F that shit. Too bad she got cut - she was the hottest and has some great jugs. I wonder if he cut her because she wouldn't do it. Then again, given her background, I don't see how it could have worked with her family. It's funny how she finally kissed him and he cuts her.

^^ Selma was far and away the hottest "contestant" they've had on this show. Tierra is too thick to keep around so I'm thinking the producers are requesting she stay for the sake of good TV.

Selma reminded me of a bustier, older Ashley Greene. I think I'm rooting for Dez at this point. Tierra already looks "old" and won't be aging gracefully.

Tierra is decent looking, but she has one of those bodies that won't rebound after the first kid.

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

^^ Exactly. Her face is pretty hard looking too. She's got that "go f*ck yourself" look / attitude.

This. Was actually surprised when she said she isn't a fighter when she looks like the kind of woman who could throw down in a bar fight.

At this point, I'm rooting for AshLee or Catherine (sexiest of the season, IMO) to win.

But pretty funny to see "perfect" Sean get hoodwinked by psycho Tierra.

And she's gone, thank God.

Was surprised he sent home Lesley over Des, but after catching the previews for next week, I'm so glad he kept Des around.

Catherine's self-esteem issues became super apparent...she seemed incredulous that Lesley got the boot before her.

Definitely AshLee's or Lindsay's to lose at this point.

^^ Agree ... I hope the redneck brother tries to throw-down with Sean. That would save a shitty season.

PS - can they please bring back Tierra as the next bachelorette? Enough with the goody-two-shoes stuff!

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

Too bad she's gone but it really doesn't matter anyway - they are entering the boring part of the show: the home-town phase so there's no more interaction between the sluts.

at the one girl crying about how she didn't have as much chemistry with him as the one he sent packing.

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

The wife and I turn a 2 hour show into 15 minutes or less. We run the DVR and 3x speed and stop only when it's chick fights or the final rose. Now that there are home-towns, I'll watch the hillbilly brother and the final rose. Maybe 10 minutes max next week. There is NO reason for this show to be an hour let alone 2 hours / week.

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

Yeah, Tierra was awful. The "you are 32 years-old" crap was dumb. She'd better shave a few pounds off of her ass and stop being a total bitch or she is going to be single a lot later than age 32. Either that or she will end up with some pussy that she will walk all over.

Lesley M. was the hottest one.

The current ranking:
1. Desiree is the hottest one left.
2. Catherine is attractive except for the nose ring, which is a HUGE turnoff to me.
3. The teacher is cute but seems kinda stupid.
4. AshLee seems like the best all-around chick left save for looks, as she is kind of a two-face. Sometimes she really isn't attractive looking at all, but sometimes she looks pretty good.

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

The remaining ladies all have some baggage. Sean should ditch all of them.

But I do like Dez, still. She does have a little more in the trunk than the rest of the gals.

AshLee has a face of a child that didn't quite mature into an adult's face, so she is pretty from some angles/expressions, and not as much from other angles/expresions, but lovely body.

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

Even though I was a bit let down that the teased fight was just a prank, it was still pretty funny watching Sean strain to keep his composure to protect his All-American guy image.

And again when Dez's douchy brother weirdly confronted him. Would love to hear Sean's no-cameras-around conversations with his friends afterwards ("I wanted to beat the SHIT out of that guy.")

No way Lindsay doesn't get the final rose at this point, especially since her general dad was only one to explicitly give his blessing (a really cool moment). Credit to Sean I guess for picking one of the least attractive women in the house (she looks waaaaay older than 24).

That Catherine is too exhausting and AshLee "old" with "baggage" means they're probably goners anyway.

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

Dez's brother was the most real part of any Bachelor to date. And even that was half genuine/half acting.

at Catherine being the 3rd selection after the timeout. She has to feel real confident about her chances.

And I think Lindsay is one of the most attractive this season.

Re: The Bachelor - Season 17

Dez`s brother came across as an un~intelligent douchebag prick, honestly has he ever watched the show. I honestly felt bad for Dez because he ruined everything for her. I wish Selma was still on the show, she is by far the hottest woman this season. But her being Muslim would be pretty difficult to date someone outside of that.
