May the Best Man Win

I think my dating pool may actually be better than Ali’s on this show…and that’s REALLY saying something if you’ve seen the pools that I’ve been swimming in lately. What is it about dating shows that bring out the claws in men? They turn into a bunch of cat fighting women. Craig M. was picking fights with everyone, Jonathan was being a little tattle tale, and Craig R. was still trying to give the crippled wrestler Justin a hard time about his true intentions. My Lord…get over it! If they had any confidence or personality of their own, they wouldn’t feel the need to run each other down. Focus on the girl gentleman…that’s why you’re on the show.
To make things worse, the guys on the group date were forced to squeeze themselves into tiny little Speedos for a photo shoot on the beach. If there was ever a way to force a group of guys to man up and “show’em if you got’em”, this was it. Maybe that was Ali’s idea. Maybe she really wanted to check out what she was getting before she got too serious about any guy in particular. Better to know now than to be disappointed later.
Her one on one date with Frank was going really well until their vintage car broke down on the freeway. Then they got the privilege of riding in one of LA’s stinky cabs over to Hollywood, so Frank could get a taste of what a D list celebrity’s life is like, posing for photos along Hollywood’s walk of fame. To cheese it up a bit more, Ali took Frank up to the famous Hollywood sign to share their first kiss before sunset. At least they got the car running again. I hope that rental shop didn’t pay for product placement. This show gave them more bad publicity than Craig M.
Speaking of Craig M...What planet is that guy from? I don’t think he’s as “dangerous” as little Jonathan would have Ali believe. I think he’s just gross. He’s going to be one of those guys who is still single at 45, who’s never been married and thinks that he’s too good to date women in their 30’s. So he hangs out in college bars, trying to convince girls in their 20’s that he’s rich and he has more “experience” than younger men. Yeah, I’m sure you do…the kind of experience that you can’t get rid of. I’m so glad that Ali was able to see though all of that long wavy hair and know without a doubt that he needed to be put back on his saddle and sent on his way.
Jesse probably had the best date of all. Ali whisked him away on a private jet to Vegas. Once they arrived, they were greeted by a cherry red Ferrari, which Ali proceeded to drive into the city. I have to say, that was not a great move on her part. I would have let the guy drive. I know Jesse said that he thought it was sexy the way she handled the car, but you have to know that deep down he wanted to get behind the wheel. No one wants to ride shotgun in a Ferrari.
Ali and Jesse seemed to have a great time in Vegas. I’m surprised there wasn’t any gambling…just pool time, dinner, and dancing. It took Ali a little time to warm up to Jesse. He’s not really a big talker, but it looked like he was able to move his feet and his tongue on the dance floor. He’s one of those guys who’s obviously not that smart, but basically a good guy without an agenda. Sometimes that’s all you really need…and being HOT doesn’t hurt either. Who cares if he can read?! He’s a contractor. He can fix stuff and he looks good. Two out of three ain’t bad!
Ali is left with only 17 men to choose from. I hope that’s enough. I’d hate to see her wind up jobless and single. Maybe Facebook will let her have her old job back and help her “find a friend”.
