I really like you, but....I'm the Bachelor

I think you are a fantastic person, but...see ya later, you wacko!

I keep getting lost in your eyes, but...that's just because there is nothing behind them in your head!

You are a great mother, but...you're old enough to be mine!

You deserve a guy who sweeps you off your feet, but...I left my broom in my other pants!

I would like to listen to your sage advice, but...I am a dummy and don't believe anything I say before "but..."

Just a few of the noteworthy "but's" in last night's episode.  My recap will be brief, as will this season if Jake keeps kicking off more women than he is supposed to!  All I can say is...way to go!  He totally let "ladies" go that he didn't have to.  I am going to recap the dates in from most brutal to least.

The two-on-one date was totally brutal.  Ella monopolized his time and Kathryn couldn't get a word in edgewise.  There was absolutely no chemistry between Jake and Kathryn  and he totally pulled the rug out from under her when he came back into the cabin after letting Ella go and told her he wasn't the man for her.  Coulda fooled her!  He's certainly not pulling any punches.  Ella was the personification of class when he let her go.  She told him to make a good choice and to be careful.  Unlike most women who, when let go, tell him he is making a huge mistake.  Maybe they think if it worked for Molly, it will work for them!

The group date was almost as brutal.  From the way Vienna bounded off the RV and into Jake's un-waiting arms, to when Ali called shotgun with Jake and all the other girls just stood there, to the roll/tumble down the sand dune with Corrie, to the one-on-one time with Ashleigh filled with painful silences, to Vienna telling him she wanted the last one-on-one time of the evening, awkward was just abundantly flowing.  I have to say I am getting a bit tired of the Vienna vs. Ali drama.  Ali needs to back up her claims that if Vienna is what Jake wants then he can't possibly be the future husband for her.  Vienna grated on my nerves a little more than usual last night, too and I loved it when Jake told her that she brings on the cattiness from the other girls herself.  Reality check?!?!  Anyhoo, Tenly got the rose for this date which was well deserved.  She was the only one who had relaxed adult conversation with Jake, intermixed with some pretty hot kisses.

Gia's one-on-one date was cute.  I think it is so adorable that Jake obviously doesn't feel comfortable driving a motorcycle and, yet ABC keeps putting him on the darn thing.  Gia wore her appropriate motorcycle/camping attire of 5 inch stilettos and flowy chiffon tunic because nothing says motorcycle safety like floral and Manolo's.  She was a trooper and hung in for Jake's outdoorsy date.  Notice how he plied her with wine - "If we hurry up and finish this bottle, we can play spin the bottle so that you can relive your first, terrible, nightmare of a kiss!"  I think they have good chemistry and she is pretty even-keeled.  I did notice her New Yawk accent made a starring appearance in this episode!  I hadn't noticed it until now.

Rose Ceremony!  Wooohoooo, Jake!  What moxie you showed by refusing to give roses to girls you don't see a future with.  Why string them along for another week if you know you don't feel anything for them?  I was surprised with Corrie - was thinking it would go to Ashleigh but, hey...

Roses went to:  Gia, Tenley, Ali, Corrie, Vienna

No roses for:  Ella, Kathryn, Jessie and Ashleigh

Next stop, San Francisco!!!

I couldn't take it any longer. I watched the first episode and then could not watch it. The girls, the drama, Jake (he is a drama-king) so I deleted it from my DVR. Plus I spoiled it and read already who the final girl supposedly is.

Great Re-Cap though, I feel like I watched it with you.

I always chuckle at those motorcycle scenes - Jake all bundled up in his leather and boots ready to survive a motorcycle accident and the girls, well, good luck to them if that motorcycle crashes.
