Talking TV (Test)
What are you watching?
Who will Sophie give the flick to tonight?
Poor Sophie. Bring on the intruders.
Jarrod: “I just can’t stand the idea of someone else going out with Sophie.”
Uh, Jarrod, you realise what show you applied to be on, right?
Three to go! That’s definitely a massive comb over on sam
A BAD massive comb over!
I missed the start. Are three going home tonight?
According to the ads 3 are going, clearly Luke isn’t one of them.
I am stupidly excited about the parents incognito part of this episode!
Me too, really just looking forward to Sam making more of a douche of himself
I’m liking Luke so far but looks like he gets into the hard questions…
So far only the older ones get a chance – James, Luke and Jarrod. The others, no chance
I’m loving that Sophie isn’t pretending that any of this is normal and that she was slightly embarrassed at the silliness of asking Luke if he would accept the rose.
Lucy is doing a great job as ‘Ellen’!
Okay so Jarrod is intense but Sam is obsessed ….. with Jarrod.
Actually Sophie has a great family. They are all very down to earth
I like them too. Nice people. With a sense of humour.
The candidates are so ineligable that producers had to bring in the parents early. Sad.
I’ve seen a few articles suggesting the guy she ends up with isn’t even in the mansion yet.
Wouldn’t surprise me. None of these guys have left a good first impression.
Jarrod is starting to get genuinely scary.
Sophie’s younger sis is prettier than Sophie
She is really pretty but in a totally different way.
Ryan is a goner!
Yep, I loved her facial expression when he turned away from her. Then she turned away from the kiss! She is being good at letting them know when she different from the idea they might have had about her in the past.
See, it’s funny. I was about to suggest that I’m officially down-grading Ryan from total douche to halfway douche. He does have a softer protective side, and the fact he confessed to not expressing himself made me feel for him as a person a little bit, but he’s still got that arrogant side which is very unappealing.
But yeah, either way, I think Sophie will deep-six him tonight.
I was wrong!!!!
Ryan tells Sophie he doesn’t like a girl who swears. He looks away and she turns aside and mouths “F—“. Gold
Also in the narration, Sophie keeps saying she had a potty mouth and Ryan said she doesn’t like girls with potty mouth!!
She is also doing well to explain that her tv polished ‘look’ isn’t something they should expect of her all the time.
That was so funny. She’d just been telling Luke on their date that she has a potty mouth.
The boys in the Mum’s car were generally so much more polite, not only talking about Sophie but just in how they interacted with a “driver”.
The boys in dads car might have behaved differently if they were with the mum too.
Good point but regardless you should be polite to people that are providing you with a service. Male or female.
Exactly, as I said the other day, how a guy behaves around / treats others tells alot about them – more than Sophie could get in one-on-one time.
People often say how a person treats waiters & any ‘service’ staff tells a lot about them as a person.
At least Sam said sorry for being a jerk last episode, after Sophie called him out on his behaviour. That makes me think good things about both of them.
I still want to like Sam, because I liked him the opening night, but I feel like it’s pretty classic behaviour. He’s nervous and out of his comfort zone … so he’s covering it with a wall of NOISE, so nobody notices. And I’m really cheering for him to grow out of it.
My feeling is that he shouldn’t have had to be prompted to apologise for the comments he made. He is really immature.
I want to see more of James, he has a really cute smile.
Wow 3 of 4 people we don’t even recognise to go home. And I realised tonight that Liam is actually named Bingham.
I know that Eden was the break-dancer and Jefferson was the drunk. The third guy? I couldn’t even tell you his name. Props to Mack for being a dark horse. He didn’t get much focus in the first episode, but his stocks are rising.
Wow, three guys gone tonight.
Does anyone else think that Sophie went to the producers and told them outright, “I get to eliminate three of these weirdos tonight, or I’m walking!”? Because I wouldn’t have blamed her at all.
And Ryan survives? That actually was surprising. I guess Ryan’s gone, but there’s other guys she’d rather eliminate first, and he just needs to wait his turn. Jarrod, meanwhile, geez … hasn’t that gone south quickly? He’s turning into this year’s Elora. Dude, it’s not marriage after one day, and you knew you’d have to watch your girlfriend date 20 other people when you signed up to be on the Bachelorette, for goodness’ sake.
And regardless of his behaviour and/or issues, I really wish Sam would lose that mullet. Can’t wait until he meets the family later on. That won’t be awkward at all.
I think Sophie has a lot more power than the usual Bach/Bachette, the producers would’ve known they were on to a good thing with her and hence would’ve given her a lot of say.
Elora plus vineyard = Jealous Jarrod.
Except that Elora didn’t want to settle down and Jarrod is way too keen to settle down.
Jarrod’s parents run a vineyard plus retreat. Very pretty place to stay and ideal location for a wedding.
They kept the older guys as intruders.
It wouldn’t be hard to look more appealing than the guys she already has.
I read his recaps religiously. Come to think of it, I think he’s the reason why I started to watch in the first place. Wickedly delightful.
I gotta say, though. Luke really does look like George Clooney and Ryan Gosling had a son, and named him “Luke”. It’s bizarre.
I love George Clooney but I don’t like the look of Luke. I actually dont find him atteactive at all. Sorry!
Luke reminds me too much of Lee Carseldine from Survivor last year – plus the fact that he used to date Laura Byrne is just lame and a turn off.
Yes, he does look like Lee. Well noted, Stacey.
I didn’t watch last night because we have grndkids here and I didn’t really care what order the creeps get sent home.
I don’t know if anyone’s mentioned this in another thread but what is with Sophie’s voice? It doesn’t even sound human let alone like a woman. And I am a fan of hers. The fags have got to go – they are obviously wrecking havoc on her voice box.
Sounds like someone transitioning💋
This show is fully scripted. Nothing is real. Many of the guys were scouted to appear in the show. So call entrepreneur Blake may not be such a high flyer as he want us to believe.
Apparently Luke is an actor.
Agree. And she is clearly being fed stuff through earphone at rose ceremony – such long pauses last nigjt.
