the bachelorette: emily

My last day of school was Tuesday, and I have to admit I was so sad, I cried on the way to school.  Every year I say, "I had the best class this year," and every June it gets harder and harder to say goodbye.  But then I had my first full day off, and I remembered....

My sadness quickly dissolved.

But  I was a little worried: without lessons and kids to say funny things, what am I supposed to blog about?  And without my blog to distract me, I might actually have to tackle the huge pile of laundry downstairs!  So, I decided to create a new page on my blog titled "timeout" dedicated to my life outside the classroom.  And of course, there is no better way to celebrate this new page with a post about one of my favorite guilty pleasures: The Bachelorette!

This season of The Bachelorette is amazing!  I love Emily: her style, her candidness, and her southern charm.  She also has some good guys competing for her hand, which she deserves.  Usually, I get bored watching the guys hang out at the house, but this year there is some serious bromance going on AND some serious drama.  I've given my lowdown on the guys who are left, but first, a small rant.

I was a little disappointed with Emily on this week's group date.  She was so upset about the fact that none of the guys told her about Kalon's comment that she didn't give out the rose.  But Doug did tell her about Kalon!  Hello!  Give him a little credit here.

But I still love you.  Alright, now for the guys.

Love you!  Arie is super sweet, down-to-earth, and seems to genuinely care about Emily.  Buttttt, he is a weird kisser.  He makes a duckface when he's moving in, and it reminds me of a dementor from Harry Potter.  He also used to date The Bachelorette producer Cassie Lambert.  Not sure how Emily feels about this, but if these are his only negative qualities, I could overlook them.  Everyone has an ex or two and she seems to like his kisses.  I think he's going to be one of the final 3.

This guy is ridiculous.  His hair is out of control.  Guy, it's obvious you have a receding hairline, there is no way to hide it.  And what is with the scarves?  I have to admit though, I think he is totally hot.  I know!  I know.  Just like Emily, I am taken in by his charm.  He showers her with attention and makes her feel special.  While I'm not sure if he is just in it for the game, his attempts at romance are funnyyyyy.

He hasn't been on the show too much until this latest episode.  He really stood out on the group date with his humor.  He is a goofball and Emily was into it.  I also like his southern accent.  Sexy.

Sorry bud.  She's not into you.

This guy is my favorite.  He's hot, he's nice, and he's a real man.  Emily seems to really like him, but if she picks him in the end, she better watch out.  Her blonde friend was way too into his muscles!  

I might be the only girl in the world who thinks this, but I just don't think Chris is attractive.  I think he's odd-looking.  But he is a nice guy and has really big biceps.  They definitely have a connection, but he's not going to make it to the end.  I think he has some underlying insecurities, which will come out later in the show.  

There's something not right about this guy, and Emily knows it.  A couple episodes ago, she described him as too perfect.  I think he's hiding something: either he's too sensitive or he's insecure.  Both of these equal not a real man.  Emily wants a real man.  Sorry Doug, but you're going home.

I really wasn't sure about Jef until this episode.  I know Emily likes him a lot, but I just couldn't see her with him.  She doesn't seem like the Sk8er Boi type.  But after their one-on-one date, he seems very genuine and drama free.  And they finally kissed!!  I predict that he will also make it to the final 3.

Next stop: Croatia?  Where the heck is Croatia?  I think I'm going to have to get out a world map before Monday.  (Don't judge me.  I teach US History not World Geography.)
