The Bachelorette Review: Heartbreak in Prague
Natalie Getz is a former Bachelor hopeful and the first-ever winner of Bachelor Pad.
In reviewing The Bachelorette for TV Fanatic she brings her unique experience of having been through this roller coaster ride, as well as her spot-on commentary on the men seeking Emily Maynard's heart.
Who brought the drama this week in Prague? How did Emily deal with the fallout from the now-infamous producer scandal? Who stole her heart, and who stole the show by almost losing his cool numerous times?
Find out in Natalie's review of Episode Seven, using a breakdown of some of the best quotes heard throughout. Who got the boot and who's on to hometowns? Were The Bachelorette spoilers right? Read on ...
Arie: "I didn't expect that." All the guys: "I didn't expect that either."
Arie got the first one on one date, and I'm confused why he didn't expect it? Am I missing something? All they guys were pretty rude about it too! If Emily is going to marry him, she'd better be spending as much time with him as possible!
Emily: "If he didn't tell me about this then what the f%#k else is he hiding?"
Emily is irate over hearing the news that Arie dated her producer, Cassie Lambert. I get that she is upset, but in his defense, it was so long ago. He was probably worried that Emily would send him packing before getting to know him had he told her. They talked it out and all ended well. I think it's really neat that they showed an unedited version of a producer/cast mate ITM (In the moment interview). Now you see what happens of camera!
Emily: "That makes me really, really happy. And if it keeps going this way, I couldn't be happier. You just, like, made me the happiest girl."
Arie told Emily he was in love with her and she was ecstatic!
Chris: "Alright, seriously, I'm going to go make a drink."
Back at the hotel, Chris learns he is going on a group date and will not be receiving too much alone time with Emily this week. He is freaking out, needless to say.
Emily: "I want this to work. I just need him to open up."
Do you really want it to work with Jon, Emily? I'm pretty sure she had to have said that about Doug and they used it for John. Not a chance in hell she thought that she wants a relationship with John the way she does with Arie, Jef and Shawn.
Emily: "I feel like John trying to close the lock is kind of like our relationship. We just haven't been able to connect. It was not a good sign."
Ahhhhhh Metaphors. Yawn.
John: "I dated a girl for a year and she cheated on me two days after our 1 year anniversary."
John: "My mom and you would be two peas in a pod."
I feel like this was slightly insulting and I don't know why!
Sean: "What are you doing walking back here by yourself?"
I was wondering the same damn thing! Why would Emily be roaming the streets of Prague alone at night after her date ended with John? That's asking for trouble!
Chris: "I'm tired. I'm tired of doing this. I'm going crazy. I just wanna hang out with her."
Chris is still freaking. He is one stressed out little puppy. He can't handle the pressure!
Sean: "If I have to share you with 20 guys just to get five minutes with you, I will."
I've gotta say, this was one of the more passionate moments of this show. Shawn chasing Emily down and slamming her into a wall with a passionate make out made me uncomfortable. That wasn't just a kiss... no, that was a kiss that happens when clothes are off!
Emily: "Thank you for that."
Doug: "I think my girl radar is totally broken."
Doug: "I want to find the right girl for Austin and I to have our own family. That safe place. And I feel bad about that everyday, man."
OK, my heart just broke a little for him. It's probably very hard to get out there in the dating world when you have a child. I think being on this show will work for him in finding a great girl. Most girls in America were watching him and had otherwise not known he even existed.
I completely agree with Emily. Guys with big kid hearts make the best dads:) Jef may look like a child, but he is by far one of the most mature guys there mentally and emotionally.
I love how he throws in humor to make serious situations a little less awkward. He is such a doll! I really like this one;)
I believe he meant something else, but couldn't say it on ABC.
John: "I'm completely shocked right now, I'm not gonna lie."
John is shocked he got sent home. I'm not. At all. Emily knew her feelings for him were not growing after their date. This had nothing to do with neurotic Chris pulling her aside before the ceremony.
Next week we get to meet Arie, Jef, Shawn and Chris's families! I'm very excited, as this is where the show takes a very serious turn. For the first time ever, I actually dig all four guys.
I hope she makes the right decision! See you all here next week.
