and now it's on our home turf... being Canada... and I have to admit... I did not have high hopes. I thought the location would likely be an embarrassment and the guy would likely be yet another way too cocky male. After week 1... I stand corrected.
My first thought... who is this host... he's tall... he's skinny... he's alright... I guess.
Next there's the bachelor... Brad... not to be confused with the two time American bachelor Brad. I'm hoping the similarities start and end with the name. Now I happen to know someone who knows someone who knows this bachelor (and no Canada is not actually that small.. it's just a coincidence) and apparently he is actually a nice guy... so I will give him the benefit of the doubt.
so then the girls start arriving and there were some gorgeous women who got out, some less than gorgeous and some quite quirky who you just know are going to embarrass themselves or stir the pot.
things I noticed... teeth (do the american bachlorette contestants get theirs capped pre-show?), prom dresses (do they get to just pick what they wear... I used to think they had a bunch to chose from... but not carte blanche... I think I stand corrected... ), girls that remind me of previous bachelor/ette/pad contestants, and fake boobs (lots of them).
the usual scrambling for his attention summarizes the first night and then we were right into our first rose ceremony.
I like his picks for the most part and also like that he's already breaking the rules by giving out one more rose.
so far I'm liking kara and ana (who got that extra rose) but my picks are largely based on non wife material merits... like what they wore. I'm thinking that whitney and gabriel are both trouble and that chantelle needs to keep that giggling to a minimum.
but what do I know.
that's all for now.
did you watch?
