Bachelor Pad - Episode Two

Ok, so obviously I'm not as devoted to re-capping Pad as I was to -ette. But I am watching it now and finding it kind of interesting. I liked how Weatherman and Gia were getting all strategic and trying to form alliances, etc.It was kind of even messing with my own head. As I walked around work and friends, I kept thinking about how I should act like I'm friends with everyone and on their team, but then BETRAY them at the first opportunity and vote them off the island to further my own agenda.
Of course, I have no real agenda.....

Speaking of which.... is it just me, or does $250,000 NOT actually sound like that much money??? I mean, by the time you give half of it away to the government, that only leaves you with about $125,000... which is approximately MY yearly salary [in my dreams]. It's also kind of an odd number... not a nice solid number like "Half a mil!" aka $500,000. Which does make me wonder if there is going to be some sort of twist at the end involving love and money, like they can get even MORE money if they forgo true love or something. I don't know... I'm just saying $250,000 is a weird/low number.
I find this hilarious... how they "don't know" Gwen's age. And I thought it was pretty harsh/slightly funny? when Jesse, aka-Max-look-alike said that he thought of Gwen as a Mom. Ouch!

All the making out and hooking up definitely makes my stomach churn. It's just seriously gross and disgusting.... tho not as disgusting as the pie-eating contest. Why in the HELL would they put that on TV?????? That was the sickest thing I have ever seen in my entire life, and I am talking BEFORE they started vomiting. WTF?!?!?!?!!!!!
Also, my self esteem definitely took a steep nose dive for a minute, looking at all the hot girls strutting around in bikinis. I mean, this is "reality" TV... these girls are like any of us... WE should look like them, no??

But then I reassured myself that they are NOT representing "reality" and most of REAL girls walking around in every day life are not as pretty as the Bachelorettes. Well at least real girls outside of LA....

PLUS, everyone knows that Christina Hendricks is the woman that all the men LOVE the most:
I also am really liking Elizabeth this show. I was enraged on Jake's season when she tricked him into making out with her forehead. But I really thought she redeemed herself at the WTA... and I'm finding her pretty damn amusing on this show. I kind of feel like she is putting on a good, entertaining show for us... and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I liked the part in her confessional when she is like "Uhhh, I'm so emotional right now!" and wipes a tear away. I kept saying that all weekend as I cleaned out my closets and got rid of old clothes. "I'm so emotional right now."
Anyway, I think that's all I've got for now. I figured I better make at least one Bachelor Pad post so Grace has somewhere to post her comments other than an antiquated Bachelorette finale post.

Yours in the Single Life,

Monday Thoughts

Sorry for not re-capping The Bachelorette Finale.... it's just such old news at this point and I really have nothing else to say.

Apparently Bachelor Pad premieres tonight! I thought we had a week off, but apparently I was wrong..... there's a first time for everything.

I will be tuning in and then will DECIDE if I will re-cap it or not. As I have stated before, everyone else seems to be super excited about this... but I think it looks kind of disgusting. However, maybe I'll get addicted.

Here's hoping!!

Julie and Sarah Do Kimmel Live

So, thanks to Paulette, who hooked up me and Sarah with tickets to see Ali and Roberto on Jimmy Kimmel Live. As soon as we arrived, we saw Ali in the alley... (hahaha!!) She came outside, looking for some alleged fans who had wanted to get a picture with her... but the fans were no where to be seen. Not wanting Ali to feel embarrassed, Sarah and I graciously offered to take our picture with her:
Sarah had the brilliant idea to take the Metro down to Hollywood and Highland. And it was definitely the best idea ever. It took us like five minutes. If we had tried to drive, we would have been stuck in traffic for hours.
The "Step Up 3D" or something premiere was also happening on Hollywood Blvd, and put a real cramp in our style trying to get backstage to Kimmel.
But we made it back stage to the green room where we got food and drinks and witnessed Ali and Roberto "canoodling." We got to see the show from there and it was fun.
So I have not thoroughly watched the finale episode yet, just sort of scanned through it. Sorry to be rude, but I find Roberto incredibly boring. And Chris L. mystifies me.
Re-cap coming soon!!!!!
