Okay…well what do I have to say about that? I know one thing…I’m not going to sing about it. I’ll leave that to Kasey. They should seriously hand out ear plugs to the audience. Did he not watch the show? Did he not hear how bad he was? I’d be so embarrassed, I’d never sing in public again. But not Kasey, he’s like those people who try out for American Idol and announce that they have “no formal training”.  Yeah no kidding!

Ali thought the show was going to be all “rainbows and butterflies”. Well she got a weatherman and a snake instead.  What’s most important is that we bring them all back together to bad mouth one another on the season’s trashy talk show, The Men Tell All Bachelorette Special. These “Tell All” shows are always tough to watch. They are such a montage of all the most painful and embarrassing moments from the entire season. I think I was more disappointed in the fact that it took them so long to get to it. We were halfway through the show before the guys came out and all they did was talk about Frank and Justin…the only two guys who weren’t there to defend themselves. However, I am glad that they didn’t come, because I’m frankly over them. The only one who did show up to face the humiliation was Kasey.
Ty gave Kasey props for starting out crazy and staying crazy.   The guys still seemed to like him even after all the singing, all the “guard and protect her heart” comments, and the ridiculous tattoo.  They all thought he was nuts...but genuinely nuts.  I guess honesty means more to the guys than anything.  I think that is true in real life as well.  I think women are more likely to take a guy back after he lies than a man will take back a woman.  They always say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but I've seen some furious scorned men in my day...quite a few on this show over the years as well.
The one that surprised me the most was Kirk.  His interview was kind of strange.  He actually still seemed really hurt.  It was much more emotional that I was expecting. He seemed genuinely upset that Frank ruined his chances to take that next step with Ali.  If I had to take a guess, I would predict that they may have been setting him up to be the next Bachelor.  He's cute, he's nice, he didn't make a total fool out of himself...it could work.
They couldn't stay away from Rated R for long.  They even went as far as to bring out Jessie, the girl who outed Justin for having a girlfriend back home in Canada.  Apparently, Canada is a really small country despite its size.  Everyone seems to know everyone there or at the very least they are all Facebook friends and share secrets, because that's apparently how Jessie found out about Justin's girlfriend and his other girlfriend.  He is quite the massive jerk.  As Craig said...Justin was just "an @$hole being an a$@hole".  I'm glad Ali managed to get rid of at least one of them before Tahiti.
The rest of the show was kind of boring after that.  The highlights for The Bachelor Pad were the only truly exciting clips to watch.  I can't wait for that mess to hit the airwaves.  You know the creepy producer, Mike Fleiss, came up with that idea. He just looks like a guy who keeps a stash of porn under his bed. Yuck!
As if two hours of the Bachelorette recap wasn't enough, ABC gave us another full hour of The Bachelor Behind the Rose.  I was so bachelored out at this point I had to take a break.  The only thing good that comes out of watching 3 straight hours of reality TV is an overwhelming sense of self confidence and pride in myself as a somewhat normal human being compared to all of these idiots. I did find it funny though that two of the “villains” on the Behind the Rose special were both from Austin.  Poor Brad and Wes...at least Brad had the sense to stay out of the spotlight.  Not Wes though...he signed up for another round on The Bachelor Pad.  I pray he doesn't sing.  And who would have thought...Bob the 5 ½ Bachelor!? He was by far the least attractive.  I guess it goes to show...women will fall for charm and good looks, but a good sense of humor will take you ALL THE WAY!
Tune in next week as Ali breaks someone's heart into tiny little pieces.
