There is No Crying in Kissing and Volleyball

Sean gives new meaning to lip locked this week on The Bachelor as he and Lesley break the World Record for on-screen kissing. Lesley may have also broken the record for shortest dress without showing her butt cheeks. There were a lot of hands involved in holding them together for the 3 minute and 16 second lip lock but they managed to achieve their goal. They proved once again that you never know what you can accomplish when you put your lips together. Lesley said that the evening was “magical in a good way”. I wasn’t aware that there was a bad way to be magical, but either way it looks like Sean and Lesley have high hopes for their future.
The group date turned into a sudden death volleyball match with half the ladies going home to cry themselves to sleep in their sandy sheets. Maybe it’s just me…but I think it’s a little early for these girls to be crying over not getting to spend enough time with Sean. I’m more likely to cry over losing a volleyball game than cry over a guy I’ve known less than 15 days.
Kacie sealed her fate as a friend when her plan to tattle on the other women backfired in her face. Rule number one, which she should have known since this was not her first rodeo, is that no one ever survives the rose ceremony by being the snitch. Sean wants to be the center of attention. He’s not keeping anyone around who loses their focus so easily to the other ladies drama.
Tierra fell down the stairs before AshLee’s one on one date with Sean. She managed to avoid going to the hospital, but succeeded in getting some extra time alone with Sean. She played on his sympathy but may have created more trouble than she bargained for with the other ladies. No one is feeling sorry for Tierra. In fact, I’m sure a few of them would like to push her down the stairs again and bruise more than her ego.
AshLee and Sean shared their date at Magic Mountain with two young girls struggling with chronic illness. AshLee showed Sean what a caring and beautiful girl she really is on the inside and out. Sean seemed very taken with her and her story of adoption. I think AshLee is a rare find. If Sean doesn’t chose to be with her, she’s a shoo- in for the next Bachelorette.
The cocktail party was for the dogs…literally. Sean coordinated a special visit between Sarah and her pooch to make her feel special. Meanwhile the other ladies were following Sean around like a bunch of puppies…all chasing after the same bone. It was a bit ridiculous. After sending Kacie on her way in private, he managed to show less respect to Taryn and Kristy who were both sent home feeling insecure about themselves and their chances of ever finding love.
At some point I hope these ladies realize that life really isn’t that hard if you’re beautiful and look amazing in a bikini…like they all do on this show. Maybe they should spend more time developing better personalities and setting more realistic expectations in their relationships and they’d find love on their own. Not everyone gets a fairytale made for TV romance…even those don’t usually work out.
