Crazy, party of eleven?!?

I have said it before and I will say it again...crazy is as crazy does.  Well, it was time for the Bachelor to meet the families and they didn't disappoint.  The families definitely brought the crazy this week.  We're just going to tick off the crazy things that each family does.  

Starting off with Jillian in British Columbia (side note:  I love her accent!  Sounds like she is talking with marshmallows in her mouth, 'eh?) 

Crazy part 1:  The OgoPogo - Loch Ness Monster-esque legend from the lake where Jillian grew up.  She may have touched it with her foot once.  OK...moving on.

Crazy part 2:  Jillian's dad, Glen, wrapping the Canadian flag around Jason and singing "O Canada"  Cute, but...a little crazy

Crazy part 3:  Jillian's granny who states the obvious when she sees Jason for the first time..."Oh my God, He's Beautiful!!!"  She gives the crazy when she tells the camera that she is planning on shipping Jillian up to Northern Alberta to marry a Ukrainian.  She further brings the crazy when she gives Jason a gift of maple leaf boxers which she places on his head!  Go, Granny!!!

Next up is Molly, who I have now dubbed Golf Pro Barbie, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  

Crazy part 4:  She looks like she just stepped out of a Preppy Golfer catalog and mentions that she has bought Jason an outfit to wear golfing.  Can you say "Ken and Barbie go golfing"?

Crazy part 5:  Molly's mom, Maryanne breaks out the hat box and proceeds to put one on each person's head.  Molly looks mortified, her dad, bored.  Lovin' his beer mug hat!

Crazy part 6:  Maryanne takes Jason downstairs to the mother of all craft rooms and directs him to dray a picture of Molly that she will recognize.  Now unless Molly was the Joker in a former life (see below) she's not going to recognize herself!  

Now, on to the center of the crazy universe, Naomi's home town of Lake Elsinore, California.  Hang on to your hats folks, this might be a bumpy ride!

Crazy part 7:  "Be one with the hula hoop!"  I just don't think Jason's hips roll that way...

Crazy part 8:  The dead dove!?!?  Are you kidding me?!?!?!  If my mother did that to me the first time I brought home Bubba, I would have killed her by running into her with my windshield.  I did like how Joanne claimed plausible deniablity stating that the dove had "killed itself" on her windshield.  Did anyone else see a future serial killer in her nephew as he decapitated the dead bird with a trowel?

Crazy part 9:  Naomi's dad, Hector, preaching the Gospel to ever-so-obviously Jewish Jason.  You know, the only way to have a successful marriage is to be not-Jewish!  Did anyone else notice the casino/living room they were sitting in?

Crazy part 10:  Joanne talking about Indigo children and past lives.  Same soul family??? You mean like James Brown???  Wha??  Run, Jason!  Run far, far away!

Lastly, Melissa's hometown of Dallas, Texas.  By far the sweetest reunion...tears and butterflies when they come together.

Crazy part 11:   I only got one here...Melissa's parents not wanting to meet Jason in such a public way.  Maybe not that crazy, however, this is your daughter and you are mucking up her potential happiness.  Take one for the team.

In the end, Naomi was sent packing (gosh, I wonder why?).  The ladies and Jason are headed to New Zealand for the uber-romantic overnight dates and, finally, the return of DeAnna.  What could she possibly have to say that would make Jason so unhappy?  

I hate having to wait until next Monday!!!

Is this your family??? I'm soooo lost!!!

Nadine Hightower said...

Thank you for clearing that up. I'm new to the CheeseFactory and I was like, "oh her son is gettin' married and the family is gatherin'" And then it was all weird....and it just kept gettin' all weirder....Soooo....

I keep saying it over and over, but Molly needs to go. Did you hear her mother say "he's perfect for US." For US? For US? Jason better run now, because he would not be in bed with Molly, he will be in bed with that whole damn country club family. Yikes. Get a life and cut the umbilical cord. Stop making decisions that please your parents. GROW UP! I can't stand her.

Whoo, I feel better now.

OMG, I love talking about the Bachelor!

Naomi's family is flippin' nuts! The dead dove took the cake though. Poor Jason the look on his face was like WTF did I get myself into.

Go Melissa!!!

LOVE your recaps!

I have to say, his face was hilarious during the funeral, and for much of that date. WIsh someone was there taking pictures every time he made it, which was a lot! I am not sure who I want to see "winning" this thing, as if it's a prize. Still torn. But until next week...

DeAnna was so darned controlling... he should run like the wind from that one!

LOVE your break down of all of the craziness! So so true. I was so very happy to see Naomi go. Her fam definitely won the CRAZY award.

Can't wait until tomorrow night-the evil comes back to visit, pleading for forgiveness it looks like! Be strong Jason!

First time visitor here and I'll be back!
