I’m sorry. I’m sorry my state is so full of weirdos. Yes, we had the people with the dead dove funeral last season, but we also gave you the folk-singing psychobabble parents last night. Maybe it’s because I just watched the Hitchcock festival, but did anyone else hear Psycho music when Kiptyn’s mother watched them in the hot tub? I forwarded through the Carmel family. Seriously, I would have thought I would have put up with a lot to live in Carmel, but nope, not that much. Jesse’s brother seriously reminded me of an Owen Wilson character.
Seriously, I love Kiptyn, but I could not overcome his family. Not even for a beach view would I marry into that mess. I’m sure they’re very nice people, I’ve just made it a vow of mine not to get involved with people who break out the instruments (or for that matter, dance) with company. Maybe my world is a bit small, but I don’t know, you’re going to be on television for the whole world to see, is singing a song without a tune how you want to make your debut? I assumed the guy has colleagues. San Diego is its own kind of place though.
Michael’s family seemed very sweet and didn’t it break your heart that he got sent home all fresh-faced and in pain? Poor baby, one of you single gals out there, he’s a good catch I think. He probably won’t ever be rich, but you will never be poor with a man who has a heart like that.
I liked Reid’s family the best and it’s clear they have great chemistry. We didn’t see any of Reid’s weird cleanliness thing, and his family was surprised by his emotion with her, which is both good and bad. What if it dies as soon as he’s “got” her? If he’s not an affectionate sort? What if he can’t kiss her until she’s showered and brushed her teeth? Just saying, something to watch for?
I was also thrilled to see Ed. Even though Ed is different, there’s something I really like about him. He’s warm and I think he’d make great husband material. I do worry he’s not “exciting” enough for her. But you know, I’d be happy with Ed. I’d bet you’d have a great plasma TV and a comfortable sofa with Ed. Not much more you need in life. LOL
(I’m kidding, please don’t send me more sermons.)
Finally, I come to Wes and the ridiculous fiasco that is his drama. First off, I am really hoping that this is a produced section and Jillian is not that stupid. Second, I have a theory. I think that men who grow up around all women have an underlying anti-woman stance that comes out in awful ways. Case in point: Tom Cruise. And now: Wes. I think Wes’s mommy, like Jillian, sees what she wants to see in her son. He’s learned the language of telling women what they want to hear as a commodity, but you know, he doesn’t even use it well. He doesn’t look you in the eye, girlfriend. He’s shifty. Please tell me you see that, just a little bit?
I cannot take guys with drama. He’s his own soap opera. And Laurel, if you’re out there, this is your ticket to freedom. TAKE IT!! And if you Texas girls aren’t running to soothe Jake’s broken heart, well, I really don’t know what’s wrong with you.
