Let me first start by apologizing for how entirely wrong I was in my rankings last week. I mean woah, I really screwed that one up.
In my defense, I didn’t watch the preview for this weeks show at the end of last weeks show, so I had no idea that James was about to have a total meltdown until it happened in the episode. Serves me right for prematurely switching to House Hunters.
In this weeks episode, Des and the boys jetted off to Munich.
Naturally we all had to listed to stories of how Des has never been overseas, Des grew up poor, one time Des’ family slept in a tent.. you know, the usual.
Chris’ date was quickly overshadowed by the fact that a plane ride to Munich couldn’t change the fact that Bryden realized what the rest of us already knew, that Des is the most boring person on the face of this planet and decided to ditch the show while he was conveniently located in Munich.
Good call man, but couldn’t you wait until poor Chris had his overwhelmingly German date before you rained all over Des’ parade?
Fortunately Des had like a three second cry resuming her date full of awkward dancing.
But in all seriousness, I think Chris really came out of his shell on this date, and he and Des seem to have a natural chemistry that could get him far.
After shopping for Leiderhosen, Des and Chris had dinner and he read another terrible poem to her and she loved it… again.
Nailed it. Definitely a front runner in my book.
The Group Date
All that we really need to mention about this date is that Juan Pablo is adorable. I could listen to him butcher the word “yodel” all day long.
I am starting a petition for Juan Pablo to get more screen time right… now.
The 2-1 Date
Such a strange coincidence that the two people who hate each other the most in the house somehow randomly ended up on the two on one date together! I never saw that one coming.
Maybe that could have been incentive to pick a less annoying duo of bachelors? Just a thought.
I’m pretty sure Michael’s intentions for the date were clear when he claimed that he planned on murdering Ben “gladiator style” before the date had even started.
That’s always a good way to get things rolling.
Michael took his first bashes at Ben early in the date, calling Ben out for being an absentee father, but I wasn’t really listening to that becasue I was too distracted by this:
A hot tub boat?
When and where can I get in on this? I would be willing to listen to Ben and Michael bicker too if I got to ride around in a hot tub boat while they were doing it. Totally worth it.
The date only got worse as dinner rolled around and Michael went all “annoying/judge-y family member who calls you out for all of your wrongs” on Ben. I had flashbacks of my grandma circa 1995 when I heard “WHAT ABOUT EASTER BEN?? YOU DIDN’T GO TO CHURCH ON EASTER!”
Hopefully Michael can simmer way down now.. or just go home next week. That works too.
