Whohoooo here we go with The Bachelorette Season 13 Episode 1.
We start the episode with an intro to Rachel Lindsay. We meet her in Texas doing her lawyer thing. We also meet her dog Cooper who gets to go to LA for filming!
Intro to the guys
Kenny – Kenny is a wrestler and has a 10 year old daughter.
Jack – Lawyer from Dallas. He tells us about his mom dying from cancer when he was in high school.
Alex – from Detroit. He likes to work out but he is a nerd. He loves his parents and speaks ____ (another language!)
Mo is from San Francisco. He is launching a start up company and is quite the Bollywood dancer.
Lucas if from Woodside California – are we supposed to know where that is? Whaboom….
Blake E. from Venice California. He is a personal trainer and sports nutritionist. He likes himself a LOT. Tells us he is used for his manly parts! LOL
Kenneth (Diggy) from Chicago. He is very into fashion. His nickname came from a compliment for someone liking his “digs”. He has 575 pairs of sneakers. UM
Josiah is a Prosecutor. He tells about his brothers suicide when Josiah was 7. This really had an outcome on his life, and he turned to crime and burglary. He was arrested when he was 12. A judge sent him to a program, and ironically that is where he works.
Rachel meets up at the mansion with some ladies from her season. Alexis, Corrine, Jasmine, Raven, Kristina, Astrid and Whitney. Whitney warns Rachel that Sarah form their season knows DeMario – and questions his motives for being on the show. You mean people come on this show for something other than true love????
There are 31 guys for the show. She. I just can’t cover all of their limo entrances!! Let’s go right to the cocktail party! I have the hardest time on these shows when there are so many guys/girls to choose from and keep track of!
Josiah pulls Rachel aside, he tells her his life story, she is impressed.
Dean gets the next bit of alone time. Dean tells her that he loves the beach, and naturally has a sandbox with toys in his backyard.
Fred gets alone time and tells Rachel about his crush on her.
Rachel knew who he was, but can’t get past the fact that she used to discipline him.
Bryan speaks Spanish and tells her he is a chiropractor and good wth his hands! They make out! She likes him!
Chris brings in the first impression rose. Guys start freaking out.
DeMario is talking to Rachel and asks her to choose between Backstreet Boys or NSync. She pick NSync. He says again, he knows he is a front runner.
Lucas and whaboom. I just can’t with this. I don’t understand. he is a freak. I gotta hand it to Rachel though – she has a way to cut to the chase, but also overlook nutsoness (i realize that isn’t a word – but it fits!)
Peter gives Rachel some chocolate. Rachel confesses, that she doesn’t like chocolate. What?? Peter catches a shooting star and suddenly all is ok even though he brought chocolate to someone who doesn’t like it.
Blake E. wants to put a stop to Whabooming Lucas. THANK GOD! They try to make drama, but it seems to blow over.
First Impression Rose
Rachel gives first impression rose to Bryan. More making out!
A few other things that stood out.
Some guy brought a dummy. They had fun with it!
The tickle monster career – whackadoo!!!
Not only does Lucas shout stupid things, he uses a megaphone. Producers, Pleases!!! don’t make her keep him too long!!
8 guys go home
Kyle, Rob, Grant, Milton, Mo, Jamey, Blake K and Jedidiah
What did ya’ll think of the first episode? I am ready for some dating!!! I hope they go fun places and do fun things this year. I was glad that race wasn’t constantly brought up (was it at all?).
I really like: Bryan, Josiah, Blake (only really for trying to put Whaboom dude in his place), Lord, I can’t remember anymore guys!!! I kind of like Peter. I am intrigued by Fred and their past…. I liked Jedidiah and am sad he left, I also liked Rob from the preview, so was sad to see him go.
