Kissy, Kissy

Here we are on episode two and the tension amongst the women is palpable. It's move in day at the house and the girls are ready to get moving along with Jason.

Jason surprises the girls while they sunbathe in bikinis, without makeup, and (gasp!) hair up! I think it was very gentlemanly that Jason approaches Megan, who was outed last show as the least liked contestant by the other women, and asks if she's okay despite the announcement. He definately appreciates that she too is a mom and is different than some of the other young girls.

After a cheesy slo-mo shirt removal, Jason takes a dip and engages in some chicken-fighting with hot-dog girl Jillian. Jillian is really a strong candidate and has made the most real connection with Jason yet.

*enter the needle scratching off the record.....*

Here comes Shannon. Kept around because I feel ABC just loves some good insane drama, Shannon continues to prove she is indeed president of Stalkers Anonymous. Claiming yet again she is ready to be a mom, Jason probably is thinking, "I don't remember asking if you were," but I think he is flattered somehow by her confidence. My hubby has nick-named her Sha-NO-NO.

Two women, Melissa and Jillian both received one-on-one dates that led to lip locks that would make Hugh Hefner blush. Why must the cameras zoom in so close during this intimately awkward moments? Blimp rides and personal concerts with Robin Thicke...how normal for a first date. Sigh.

We learn later on the group date that Molly's secret talent is kissing, and lucky for her, Jason enjoys coldsores making out with a little of everyone. This proves wrong for Nikki (the one with the enormous...heart) who claims that kissing is very serious. She turns a bit sour and angry at this point and I fear she's lost her chance.

Jason heads back to his place after a long night to find Racquel awaiting him in the limo. Surprised, he's caught off guard by her angry tone and plea to stick around.

Erika is on thin ice, she is really a heavy drinker and her behavior, as a result, becomes very catty.

Finally, Jason gets some one on one time with Stephanie. Stephanie lost her partner in a plane crash when her daughter was 10 weeks old. A Southern Belle, Stephanie isn't an immediate match with Jason in my eyes, but she has made an impact with him that seems honest.

Final 12 ladies are Megan, Nikki, Lauren, Molly, Jillian, Melissa, Naomi, Stephanie, Kari, Natalie, Shannon, and Erika.

The overall tone of the show was one of uneasiness, which is totally understandable. Have these girls really thought through the process of 25-15-12 girls dating one man all at once?! Did they think it would be easy? Luckily for us, they haven't a clue!

    I actually watched this show tonight. Lots of drama, wasn't there? Still, it was good. Better than i thought It would be

  2. Sarah said...

    I also think Stephanie isn't the perfect match. She has a touching story but just doesn't seem to be the right fit. Right now, I kind of like Melissa...but it still too early to tell. Why is this show so addicting??!!?

  3. KJ said...

    I hate that I am addicted to this crap! But, its so fun to watch. Almost a facination of the abomination.

  4. angi_b72 said...

    So far I like Jillian...i think she is the "most" real one there. She seems fun and doen to earth adn doesn't seem to play into the cattiness as much as the others. I don't like Shannona dn I don't like Megan....can't wait to see waht happens with the Deanna twist! Which by the way...Jillian really resembles Deanna in alot of ways I think.

  5. Tracey said...

    I saw it too! Raquel was creapy and Sharon needs a life.

  6. Audrey said...

    Yeah, for sure this was a dramatic (as always) episode! LOVED IT! And Shannon, oh Shannon, need I say more....

  7. Tenakim said...

    I tweeted you about this last night, then it dawned on me you were in a different time zone- DUH! Thanks for the recap!

  8. jill jill bo bill said...

    I am hooked on this as well! Great job recanting! I am not sure who I like. After seeing the preview for next week, I am thinking I may like Stephanie better. Jillian is cool tho. OMG ! Listen to me!! I need help.

  9. CaJoh said...

    Why is it that every time I watch this show with my wife I am always thinking what I would do differently to mix things up. I would love to see the producers show the bachelor those scenes of the women when they are not around the bachelor to show him what they are "really" like. He can then use that footage when he decides to give out roses.

  10. Tony said...

    wow, you are really into this...I have ordered a straight jacket (pink ) and some nice men ( Chippendales ) to come and take you back home. They will ensure you get your meds and all will be well.

  11. M@ said...

    My wife's money is on Stephanie, the woman with the baby. She had tears in her eyes when she got to unexpectantly see her daughter.

    I tried to watch, but I just couldn't. Fae said she'd have me roped in by next week :)

    And yeah, Sha-No-No is there because she's just good TV.

  12. Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

    The hubs and I watched last night...laughing at some of the crap...Crazy crazy...

  13. Semi-Slacker Mom said...

    What do these single mommas do with their children while they spend 6 weeks(?)trying to snag them a new daddy?

    I used to watch faithfully, (Bob, Trista, the Firestone kid, etc.) but haven't watched it several seasons.

  14. ♥georgie♥ said...

    I am a Jillian fan BUT think that Melissa is a contender...erica has to go and I am SOOOOO glad i did not name lilest bean after her daddy ;-) no offense meant to other nice erica's

  15. blueviolet said...

    Great wrap-up and I love the show as much as you do!

  16. Rachel said...

    I can't bring myself to watch this show from beginning to end; the girls drive me nuts with their craziness. However I do get sucked in for an episode here and there...so I will come by here and get caught up!

  17. Vicki said...

    Great recap Jen!!! I agree that last night's show was (gosh do I have a word for it)... I agree that Shan-no-no needs to GO-GO!!! She's a FREAK!!! Gak!! I think Nikki is a good match, although a tad bit serious!!! I busted out laughing last night when Jason said something like "All the girls have assets, YOU have great assets!!" Yeah, $hit - they sitting right there in your face!!! LOL!!! Wow!! I like her but (warning, mean comment), what's up with her "sideburns"? Her hair goes back but she has like rectangular sideburns! Hmmm!!!
    I would say I like Jillian the best right now. Although if she said Awesome one more time...
    I was really hoping Erika would go!! How bout she put his hand on her chest at the end and said "feel this"!! GAK!!! She's obnoxious!!!
    I will admit that I got tears in my eyes at next week's episode with Stephanie seeing her daughter! That is so sweet. But honestly, I can't imagine leaving my daughter once but to have to say goodbye again - sorry Jason...you're not THAT cute!!! ;)
    Anyway, now I sound obsessed!!! LOL!!! It does bring me much amusement!!!! :) See ya next week!

  18. Jen E @ mommablogsalot said...

    I didn't watch last night's episode but I would have if I could watch two shows at once! Great review of it!

    Oh and I just gave you an award over @ my blog!

  19. Quirkyloon said...

    I'm so glad I can "watch" this show vicariously through you!

    And I LOL'd at your hubbie's nickname Sha-no-no!

    Funny!

  20. Tracy Fiebranz said...

    You won an award!

    http://momsrantsnraves.blogspot.com/2009/01/and-award-goes-to.html

    Go see what you won!

    Thanks for your fabulous blog!

  21. Amy Amy Bo Bamey said...

    Sha-NO-NO is a great nickname! I was calling her Shiny Disco Balls because that is what she looked like she had on her chest in that bathing suit top.

    I am addicted! I like Jillian more this week she seemed more normal and not some crazy hot dog chick.

    Melissa too!

    I like Lauren but she is getting kinda needy and the dress she wore was horrible.

  22. Elaine A. said...

    Thanks for the wrap up. I was out last night and didn't get to watch. Although I have to say, even after the show last week I was a little put off by most of these girls. Doesn't mean I won't still watch some... probably.. maybe... ; )

  23. Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

    If Stephanie can loosen up her tight bun (on her head ladies ~ sheesh!) I think she would be perfect. At this stage of the game, my money's on Stephanie. I like her, I really do. Jen... thanks for the recap and insights!

  24. Toni said...

    Thanks for the recap. I watched my first of these series last season when Jason did not get picked. I thought a huge mistake. I have not been able to watch this time but am curious about it. I will be definitely keep checking in!!

    I love Sha-No-No that is funny!

  25. amelia bedelia said...

    Nice recap! I think I like Melissa.

  26. Jo-Jo said...

    I have NO idea how a woman would be able to withstand all those other women dating the same man. Insane. But hey, that is what makes good TV!

  27. Merrie said...

    I tried watching it last night, but in the end I gave up, and instead created my CH play list on my iPod. :) Is 23 hours of music enough??

  28. Tasha said...

    400 followers....are you KIDDING me? Remind me to kick your ass next time I see you.

    Smooches! ;)

  29. Musings of a Housewife said...

    You make me wish I was watching this year!!!

  30. Diva Ma said...

    So I dont usuall watch this show but I watch last night and cant wait to see what those silly checks are gonna do next week for his attention.

  31. Shannon said...

    "Sha-NO-NO" could not be a more appropriate nickname! (Have you been watching The Biggest Loser?... there's a Shannon on that show, too. Last week after the show aired, she made headlines for being arrested for assault. I think I need to get on a reality show so the world can see not ALL Shannons are nutjobs!)

    Jillian is my fave so far... she seems the most genuine.

  32. mom3crazygirls said...

    I hate you for getting me involved in this show! I had to watch episode 2 online today - it's a guilty pleasure

  33. Jamey said...

    I need to get this on my tivo, I never remember when shows i like are on. thanks for keeping me up to date, see ya!

  34. Mc Allen said...

    I know, this show is really addictive... I think its partly because he is such a good guy and daddy. he isnt bad to look at eather;) ♥ LA

  35. the RaMbLeR said...

    I much prefer seeing it through your eyes.

    hey...I have an award for you!

  36. kel said...

    My girlfriends all love this show.. I can't stand it! I just hate to see women all fighting over one guy. seems silly to me!!

  37. Jen said...

    That stalker girl is the best part of the show. Hopefully he won't boot her off too soon. I mean don't get me wrong, he SHOULD get rid of her ASAP, but I'm hoping that he doesn't. Too funny!

  38. Lisa said...

    Love the recap. I like Stephanie, but agree she doesn't seem like the match. My favs are Jillian & Melissa right now!!! I really like Jason & hope he gets a Ryan & Trista happy ending :)

  39. Hannah Noel said...

    So-- I've been watching the show-- but I don't know all the names of the girls yet.
    So far, I really don't like the dirty-blonde chick who seemed a tad ( a LOT ) tipsy and was trashtalking other people and then making a big deal about it.

  40. Heather of the EO said...

    I love you even more for this post. Your thoughts on the show are my thoughts. I can't stop watching, but I cringe during slo-mo shirt offs and close-up kisses. I also psycho-analyze everyone and I'm certain I know exactly what I'm doing. I do have a degree in psychology. Nothing gets by me :)

  41. Clare said...

    i had to wait a day to read your re-cap because i finally finished it on tivo this morning! i love your title, because i was watching it this morning and eating cereal. I didn't think bradley was paying any attention, and then he said 'kissing' and touched his lips when the show ended. whooops! bad mommy, but i just can't stop watching!! i need help:)

  42. Annie said...

    Love it!

  43. 3 Peanuts said...

    I really like Stephanie.... I think she looks like she has had work on her face but she seems to have a lot of class. However, I also like Melissa and I think she is going to be the one:) it is so fun to watch.

  44. Kate said...

    Was soo siked when I learned it was Jason who was the next Bach....loved him in the Bachelorette! :)

    I really like Jillian too, maybe cause she's Canadian and apparently I like Canadians, I married one and all. ;)

    Megan has GOT to go, along with Erica for heavens sake. I like Stephanie but doesn't she seem a bit old for him?? She is super nice though. Shannon has scared me from day one and Molly is just a little weird if you ask me. Melissa I like too, she surprised me with a little more maturity than I guessed from her.

    The rest I'll hold my opinion til I see more from them....ooooh yay baby, another season!!! :D
