The first episode is always tough to get a good read on the girls, especially this one. It took three seconds for drama to start inside the house, which is expected of having 25 women all fighting for one thing. Between Monica, Blakely and Jenna, who all received roses, we are in for a lot of drama this season.
From experience, ABC never shows much of the girls who go far, probably because they are normal. There should be a psychiatrist on site for the rest of these crazy ladies. All the girls who are whining about the hat, the horse, and the Grandma are all jealous because they couldn't think of something creative for them to stand out, and because those creative ladies did receive roses, and Lindzi was given the First Impression rose for riding in on her horse. I do think she would have received a rose anyway.
Here's a quick breakdown of the girls who stood out:
Nicky- Helloooooo Texas!
Kacie B.- She's about as hot as her accent, which is very hot. They didn't show much of her which is why I think she will be there in the end.
Monica- Annoying. She only stayed around because ABC knows she will cause drama. And by the way Monica, this is the Bachelor, not the Bachelorette.
Blakely- Cute name, cute dress, but I have a feeling Monica will get to her before Ben.
Courtney- Pretty, says she's a model. Why is a model on this show when they can date whomever they want? Light bulb. Ben, she either wants her name out there or is an airhead. I'll pick both
Jamie- Very pretty. Sounds like she's had a tough life by raising her brother and sister. Hope she does well.
Jenna- This girl just sucks. Now we see why your blog is called OverAnalyst. ABC kept her because she's a crier, and every house needs a crier. But previews did show her on dates with Ben so maybe she does go far.
Shawn- Didn't show her much but has a kid and contestants with kids don't last long, besides Emily in Brad's season. I don't see her being like Emily but you never know.
Samantha- wore her Miss Pacific sash. Cute girl but gas the sash!
Holly- I like her because she wore that huge hat!
Erika- The verdict is in, Guilty, of using a joke that was funny in the 1920s.
Brittney- Genius idea of bringing her grandma!
Diana- She should have been blindfolded and driven right off the premises for that dumb scene she pulled. She blindfolded Ben and made him taste things. Creeped Ben out and didn't get a rose.
I left out a handful of girls because we didn't see much of them. So Ben's future wife may be in that group since they don't show much of the girls who usually go far. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and watching everything unfold.
My Top 5 (in no particular order)
- The girl that randomly shows up. They showed her in the preview of upcoming episodes.
Was I the only one who thought it was weird that a kickball game broke out?
