Sorry so late on the recap. No excuses. Just a busy, busy work week.
They are in Bermuda and, to me, it doesn't suit Emily. Take her back down South, please. Is it cold there? She always seems to need a sweater.
First date is a one-on-one with the perfect guy, Doug. The problem with Doug that Emily has yet to see is he is just a little touchy, a little thin-skinned. But hey, if that is the worst of his faults ... He's OK. She likes him; and on their date they did "what married couples do" on vacation, says Emily, and Doug is cool with it. Shopping, walking, sending postcards home. She even sent a postcard to his son. Nice, Emily. They also walked through the "moongate" where couples can make a wish. Emily's wish was "I won't be single forever." This girl has a one-track mind. Does she even have a job or a career or any other thoughts other than HUSBAND, HUSBAND, HUSBAND.
By the way, no kiss for Doug. He likes to take it slow. Good for him.
Second date was a group date.The guys were broken up into teams and had to race a freakin' boat (not a sailor among them) for a win and an evening with Emily. The team that won included Arie, Ryan, Jef and Kalon. On the evening date, Arie steals Emily away immediately and starts putting on the moves. I'm not sure they talked much. That's the relationship with Arie ... mutual attraction and lots of smooching. The time alone with Jef seemed a little awkward, and he's a little shy, but she likes him. I actually like him, too. He seems very normal despite the hair. Not much going on with Kalon. But Ryan, oh boy, goes for the jugular, and judges Emily for the kisses with Arie and tells her to her face. At least he's honest. But, I would bet, if he were the bachelor, he would have kissed many a girl at this point in the "competition." He's a snake.
And, by the way, Jef gets the group date rose.
Now, I've judged Emily for kissing the guys, but I personally don't like it when "The Bachelor" does it either. I just think it makes it awkward for the eventual winner. However, the eventual winner always ends up a loser so I don't think it really matters if I am really honest.
The two-on-one date is with John and Nate, and it is AWKWARD. Nate ends up going home when he shows his softer side and gets a little teary when talking about his family. Emily doesn't want a boy; she wants a man. That explains why Ryan is still around. She likes it a little rough.
At the end of the evening, Michael goes home as does Charlie (no roses for them). Do you even remember them? I think they were both too nice for Emily. I think the eventual winner will be aggressive with Emily, but also a nice guy. That means it is looking good for Sean and Arie.
I think it's Kalon who gets the early boot tomorrow night after referring to Emily's daughter as "baggage." As a mom with children of my own, I can imagine how overwhelmingly infuriated a mom would be at that reference. He doesn't deserve her or anyone else. I can't wait until he has kids of his own and realizes how stupid that comment really was ... What an idiot.
More after tomorrow night. Earlier I promise.
