The producers pick the types of dates they go on, though.

Sean was like a jack-o-lantern the whole time on his date with Catherine. She is definitely F2.

That whole polar bear plunge was just stupid. And Tierra...she is just such a phony lol.

I feel bad for Sarah. You could tell Sean didn't want to kiss her. He should have just waited until the rose ceremony to send her home so she'd have a normal exit, imo.

Sean gave his 2 cents worth regarding Selma. I'm sure she's going to be thrilled when she reads it.

http://www.people.com/people/article...671201,00.html

Excerpt:

"Some of the women were willing to jump in the water, others were more reluctant – and then there was Selma. It didn't bother me that she didn't want to participate. It bothered me that she didn't even consider it. Later she told me that when she says no, nothing can change her mind. As if that's a good thing! I thought you were supposed to compromise and talk things through in a marriage. That reasoning was a large part of why I didn't give Selma a rose that week."

Don't you think if he felt that, he would've refrained from kissing her? He obviously knew by then.

This show, and it's PSYCHO women, dumb-as-rocks man, and literal death-defying, risk personal injury, fear-factor formula has now gotten to the point where it REALLY turns me off. As bad as it always has been, it was a guilty pleasure... entertainment... No longer.

I have to jump in here, for the sake of our ongoing conversations... (nothing personal) and very strongly disagree.

Any woman who would play the "I will rub up against your entire body.. and flaunt my sexuality, and gaze into your eyes, but I won't kiss you", card... would have been GONE that day if it were me.

Also, think what you want... But any woman who would put her family/mother and her faith between her and a man she wants to marry... to say that, in effect... they control me.... they control us... Again, would be GONE, that day. (Not to mention that I would not want to be married to somebody of that particular faith anyhow.)

That's what I think happens.

Besides the fact if morality was so important to her, and her family was shamed by her appearing on the show, she'd not have gone on the show. I personally think the whole story of her morality was written in for ratings..I highly doubt she is from a strict Muslim family otherwise she'd not even be there. Like most of the show, it was just part of the script.

I agree with both of these. Selma was not some innocent, naive girl from a super strict background. If she really respected her parents' feelings she would not have gone on the show, worn provocative clothing like she did or "pulled out the big guns" and kissed him on national TV. I think it was a part she was trying to play which backfired on her.

i'm hoping that Ashlee isn't sealing her own doom. i would think he'd know that she is not about the drama. but gracious--Tierra is downright devious.

generally, if ALL of the other girls are against one, the problem usually isn't "all the other girls." the problem is usually the one. it reminds me of the advice that if "you" seem to have a problem with everyone, maybe the problem is really "you."
....that's what I don't get about Sean....srsly, he just CAN'T be that stupid....or is this just another case of 'lettin' the little man do all your thinking'...

How about Sean having some consideration for HER? It's not like she was just told about the polar bear plunge. She had a few minutes to think about it before walking over to Sean to tell him she wasn't going to do it. She considered it, if only for a split second and told him no. HE was the one who really didn't take her answer or reason into consideration. She didn't want to risk her life. He said something so stupid, "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. . ." He meant WITH HIM. Not that she couldn't come back & do it another time, or that THEY could come back at a later time.

And the reason he didn't think she considered it was because she didn't melt and give into all his charms or whatever when he tried to change her mind. If she had hemmed & hawed or guilt-tripped him into feeling bad for him & the show pressuring her and the other women into doing such death-defying STUNTS for no good reason, then maybe he'd have the sense to be abashed enough to understand she had a legitimate reason to say no. Like her life was on the line. But, his reptilian brain isn't that multi-dimensional in thinking beyond his own ego.

Security expert, Gavin de Becker, (not that this is a security situation,) says, "When a man says NO, it is the end of a conversation. When a woman says NO, it is the beginning of a negotiation."

Has anyone else watched Emily's "Bachelor review" on E! Towards the beginning she said that she was nervous that Sean sent all the blondes home the first night and she hoped that she isn't the reason for that.

Last night Emily said she didn't understand all the hate for Tierra, that she didnt see anything wrong with what she has done and said so far, that she is aggressive and wants to spend time with Sean and there is one like that every season. As for Lindsay, Emily loves her and has since the first night when she "showed up in a wedding dress, wasted." It did not seem genuine with the way she said it.

IMHO Emily has changed so much in the way she conducts herself, and personally I think she has regrets about Sean.

But that's what I don't get! I would think the "little man" would be more interested in some of the other girls who have been sent home. I don't find Tierra at all attractive, but maybe guys see it differently.

I think you say things sometimes just to pull people's collective chains . BUT ... I also think she is pretty. I don't think she's ugly or odd looking at all . I think she is very vivacious when around Sean and that, in and of itself, is attractive.

I think you need a new tv. LOL By far the most beautiful was Selma. She was absolutely stunning. I cannot stand Tierra and her surprised eyebrow look. Or the way she always cocks one.

As always, I think Tierra is being kept around for the drama aspect. Without her, the show would be a bit blase this year.
