ITA - It's like the producers think we are so stupid we can't see through some of the gimmicks.

Oh no, she was cute! What a shame that she did that fake tan, it probably looked good in person but on camera it looked horrible. She looked like a really pretty girl otherwise and I felt bad for her in the end saying she was embarrassed for singing the song. I thought the song was really cute. She has nothing to be embarrassed for! That drunk girl with the 50 Shades of Gray complex has a lot to be ashamed about but your friend did nothing wrong.

I agree, she shouldn't be embarrassed...
Everyone knows the producers come up with half this stupid stuff.
Some of it is actually hilarious... (Kissing lessons from Arie!!)

Sean is a veteran here... and I am quite sure that was able to see right past the little song. If the thought that there might be something there. that would not have kept him from giving her a rose.

I really think that her cute, cruise-ship, personality, and her appearance that you mentioned with the hair and tan, were just not 'for him'. Nothing against it!!! I thought she was SO cute, except for the tan. She probably thought a tan would be good on camera, and just made a mistake and didn't realize that she might be over-doing it a little.

Can someone shed some light on this for me?

Kacie apparently asked to be on the show this time around since it was Sean as the bachelor.

I caught something about them meeting before. Anyone know the story on that? Were they friends at some point? Dating?

I believe they met at a Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise reunion - based on different reports they have these meet ups once or twice a year probably to get hopefuls for the Bachelor Pad show. Actually seems like a few have met/later married from these as well. Sounds like they met at one of those and hit it off.

I'm a little late to this party, but i'm definitely in!

I was horrified when the gymnast woman tried to do backflips in a tight gown! It looked almost like she landed on her head or neck. I would be so mortified if I was her!

Now that Benda said her friend had said the producers wanted them to have a "memorable entrance', I wonder if they made her do those stupid flips??? She seemed so embarrassed by the whole thing.

I have no clear cut favorite yet. They all seemed so fake to me. I hope Sean will be good at weeding out the crazies. I was glad to see 50 Shades woman go. Who was the one that fell down the stairs? Was it bride woman or 50 Shades woman? I can't remember...

And Sean..... please don't ruin it for me. I like you. Don't get all sleezy on us now.
He showed that he has some standards. She'd be an easy romp in the hay before dumping her, since that was all she was advertizing.

C'mon, you can't be taking any of that seriously!!!
It was all tongue-in-cheek... ( or tongue OUT of cheek!!! )
Ah, yeah, we get that it was all tongue in cheek.

It can still be considered gross after seeing the way Arie slobbered all over Emily every chance he got. I didn't want to see kissing lessons from him, even if it was a gimmick.

Just as someone else said

My husband was stuck in the room so he was stuck watching it with me--he just shook his head!!
Yep, that was her. Interesting that in a doped up state, she is what stood out.

I noticed that too. He also said that when he met her he only thought of her as a friend, not that he was instantly attracted to her. That's kind of the kiss of death right there.

Kacie, especially because of her strict parents, would be better off with Emily's Jeff. He's the kind to wait till marriage, rather than wanting to live together, because of his Mormon upbringing.

She was one of DS favorites, he um, really liked her dress or rather, how it fit her! He was sad that she was gone and proposed that she'd probably be fine now that all the guys in the country saw her and know she's single.

Aw, too bad. It is very obvious they had to come up with gimmicks, rather than just letting a natural conversation & real first impression progress. It wasn't clear at their meeting if she had to come up with the gimmick or if she thought that if she got booted off, at least she advertized she could sing and get some publicity for that by being on the show. I think that might have turned Sean off.

Like I think the black model in the blue gown - that looked like something from a Miss America pageant - seemed like she was there for TV exposure. With her cold attitude, she's more suited to be on one of the Real Housewives, shows.

Personally, that is what I thought too. I thought she sang because that's what she does for a living and I figured she wanted to put herself out there. However, when I texted her mom, she said that she was sick over them pushing her to do that and she just felt foolish, I was wrong. She seemed more upset at the end of the show over being embarrassed about singing than not getting a rose.

I'm not sure how good that fake tan looked in person, lol, but you are right, on camera, not good. Esp. when I know how pretty she is without that and her hair (I am not a fan of her as a blonde anyway & the style made me cringe). Makeup helps anyone but she looks better with less. She has two different colored eyes and she is more beautiful as a brunette. You can google her to see the difference.

And yes, the 50 Shades girl was an embarrassment to all women, lol. I'm sure her dad will never look at his neckties the same way again!

I'm keeping that first show on the DVR. Something tells me I will want to (need to!) go back to those introductions for clarity at some point!

If she hasn't taken them all. And to the poster upthread that asked, yes, it was the 50 shades girl that fell down the steps.
