:: The Bachelorette w/ Supa Cute Jillian * Episode No. 2 ::

:: Well, I'm starting w/ my episode re-caps at episode 2 - why you ask? Because I was completely out of it last week when the season premier of The Bachelorette aired! I tried to keep my eyes open but just couldn't swing it, so here we are starting at Episode No. 2 - but don't worry I caught up on the whole thing by watching it online! ::

:: Let me preface this post by saying that Jillian is seriously an incredibly beautifully put together {wardrobe wise specifically}woman. I love watching the intro for the show and seeing Jill dance around in strategic locations all over our beautiful Vancouver! Yes it doesn't help that she's a size 2 and has no kids running underfoot so she can spend the time oogling over which scarf she's going to wear and picking the "perfect" one instead of just grabbing the one within reach. But still, their is no doubt that she's a looker! ::

:: This episode was jam packed with fun group dates with the Harlem Globetrotters, an adventurous scavenger hunt to find Jillian and win a one on one date with her and the ability at each group date to win the heart of the girl who holds the rose. And this week you not only receive the rose, but the chance to move from the testosteroneville to the mansion, the competition is on! ::

:: The first date starts off as a pool party with Michael, Brian, Brad, Sasha, Mathue, Tanner P, Wes & Ed. Jillian takes Michael upstairs to her rooftop patio & has fun conversation with him, she excuses herself and heads downstairs and it looks like she's getting a rose to give to Michael. Nope. She just walks away, now it's begun. The find Jillian in Hollywood Scavenger Hunt - Goal: To find her, woo her & get the rose ::

:: After all the guys jump in mini cooper's and head in the direction of Hollywood it of course wouldn't be a reality show if there wasn't a little big of frustration, and that there was! I won't go into the nitty gritty of it all, but it wasn't pretty, especially with Brad & Wes ::

:: In the end Brad & Wes are the first team to successfully make it to Jillian. But there is a twist; she can only choose to have a date with one of the guys. She chooses Wes. Brad is ticked off because he thinks Wes is a moron ::

:: Jillian is attracted to Wes. But she's worried about his "womanizer" qualities, she feels he might be the bad boy the the girls go for but never marry --- hmmm, I kinda agree there Jillian. But she doesn't hesitate to kiss him. She gives him the rose and asks him to move into the mansion and hang out tonight ::

:: Back at testosteroneville Jake gets a note from Jillian asking him out on a one on one date and to "cut loose" - he's stoked and can't wait to be one on one w/ Jill ::

:: Jillian get's Jake to loosen his preppy wear and dress in western get up, they head out to a bar and do some two steppin' which Jake teaches Jillian, Jillian is quite impressed with him & happy with her choice ::

:: Jake & Jill talk flying and his fancy to getting up ,and just leaving town, they talk marriage and they talk kissing, okay they kiss. Then Martina McBride shows on stage and they dance, once the dance is over Jillian gives him the rose, they dance and kiss more, it was a "magical moment" by Jakes standards ::

:: Again back at testosteroneville there arrives an envelope for a few of the remaining guys as put by Jillian " if you want to be with me, you have to play ball" - this was for Jesse, Mark, Kiptyn, David, Simon, Mike & Juan. They head off to the beach to play a round of basketball, but not just any basketball, basketball with the Harlem Globetrotters! Seriously fun for the guys and for Jillian to see how the guys let competition get in the way of a really good game. Mike is bent on getting Jillian to see his fun side and make an impression before the rose ceremony. Well, he did just that. Jillian thought it would be SO funny if someone asked a random stranger on the beach to borrow his speedo and jump in the ocean. Well, you don't have to ask Mike twice! He did it and Jillian thought it was classic! ::

:: Later that night they all go out for drinks and Juan & Jill get some alone, I mean kissing time. She dubs him a gentleman; the boys hate him & say he's fake. Kiptyn and Jillian have great chemistry and they talk a bit than kiss kiss kiss. Once returning from said kiss-fest, Jillian gives the rose to Mike. They too kiss and then get in their swimwear and get into the pool, the rest of the guys do too ::

:: At the pre-rose ceremony Mike, Jake & Wes already have roses but don't feel that is any reason to slow down their persistance with Jillian, if anything they feel the other guys should step up to the plate. Things are pretty slow until that little black box comes out and the guys are told to help Jillian out by voting on who should leave the house, but Jillian has the right to over-rule their opinion, and that she does ::

:: Since the three {Mike, Jake & Wes} already had roses they were not included in the voting process, which is too bad because Wes would have won for the most votes, that I'm sure! Chris comes in with the final tally and Juan was the one that was most disliked by testosteroneville. Jillian didn't agree and decided to keep Juan {go Jillian!} ::

:: So to re-cap: Jillian has already given roses to Wes, Jake, Mike & Juan - she continues to give roses to Jesse, David, Ed, Sasha, Mark, Michael, Tanner P, Kiptyn, Reid, Robert, Tanner F & Brad ::

:: So the four guys that were voted off were: Julien, Brian, Mathue & Simon ::

:: Phew, that was a long detailed show! I'm not really sure who I'm watching yet, I feel we're still in the prerequisites for the core group that I really want to watch. Do you have your eye on anyone? ::

SO have my eye on JAKE!! Right from Day 1, he was my top pick, and last night confirmed it. My mom and Lisa are on the Jake bandwagon too :) I loved what she said about him, that her life would be safe with him, and they could be best friends. The spontaneous kiss, sweet things he says about her, their chemistry and the fact he's a pilot doesn't hurt either!

The two guys that need to go are David and Tanner. David is very arrogant, judgmental and has a dirty mouth... Tanner's obsession with feet is a little over-the-top to say the least! Creepy!

Kandis said...

For sure..Jake!!! And I like Ed too!! Can't wait till next week!!

Jessi said...

I personally can't stand Wes! That's all I have to say about that! I love Jake, still rooting for Kiptyn, and agree with Laura about Tanner P's (or Tanner Feet) as we refer to him, as beeing a little creepy!

Nadine said...

I like Jake, Robbie, Ed, and Kiptyn. I think Jake is such a cutie!

I think that Dave and his potty mouth should hit the trail. I don't really like Juan, he's a little to smooth for my liking. Wes, well I think we're all in agreement with that one.

I want to know who the fellas with girlfriends are. Any guesses?

I'm loving her waredrobe!!! I love her style!

Jason and Kristin said...

oh, Laura - I have my eyes on Jake too! And Kitpyn. Thanks for the recap Shawna! I love your "Bachelor and Bachelorette" updates!

Tawn said...

Ok ... JAKE, for certain. And I like Kipton too ... seems to me that we've got it all together - I just hope Jill doesn't disappoint us *GRIN*!!

Christa said...

I wish I had cable... LOL. How lame of me. Thanks for the update Shawna!.. and on J&K+* as well... and for the most recent recipe... I have 5 lbs in my fridge right now and was wondering what to do with it. WHERE do I find the official website to watch the Bachelorette? I am looking for it, but haven't found it yet. :(

Parisienne Farmgirl said...

WOW! That was some re-cap. I am considering myself informed!!! How in the world did you have time to do that and what in the world do you mean that you don't have time to pick out the perfect scarf or be a size two.
Excuses, excuses.

(That was me being sarcastic!)

Shawna said...

Ha Ha Ha - Parisienne Farmgirl-- I wrote the body of the post in bed this morning from 6 - 7 am on handsome Paul's laptop while he snored beside me ;)

Lisa B. said...

Super job on the recap! I agree with the general viewing population who is rooting for Jake...I also think Ed has potential as well as Kiptyn.
Feet guys needs to bust outta there and take Dave with him - yuck!

Can't wait to see what next week holds!
