Because our standard weekly recaps are clearly not enough to quench your thirst for The Bachelor gossip, commentary and insight, The Hollywood Gossip's own Bachelor Babe will be sharing her thoughts on each exciting episode with us as well.
Here's her take on Jason Mesnick and his five (now four) remaining ladies after Monday's trip to his native Seattle, where burning questions left J sleepless ...
On this episode of Jason Plus Five... Wait wait wait wait wait - First scene of Jason is on a houseboat?!!?!?!?
That CANNOT be where he lives - it has to be made up, right?
The producers are just trying to recreate Sleepless in Seattle – I totally see right through that plot device. Well, I have news for you producers, it won’t work because we all know Jason doesn’t like blondes. The only girl that comes even close to the cuteness of Meg Ryan is Molly with her adorable little giggle. Okay, I’m totally right! Nine minutes later the announcer says “Burning questions leave Jason sleepless” - leave it to the rest of us to add “in Seattle.”
Anyway, after 30 minutes of recap and random shots of Jason and the girls, the episode actually starts. Melissa Rycroft gets the first one-on-one date, with a hand delivered letter from Jason who tells her not to open it 'til he leaves. When he leaves (approximately three seconds later) Melissa opens the note which says, “Let’s hit the town in style, J.”
Which part of that couldn’t be read in front of him??
Turns out the date is canceled so Jason can spend the evening with Ty (awwww), so Melissa goes to Jason’s house and proceeds to… clean up Jason and Ty’s leftovers. Nice, Jason. Remind us again what you’re looking for in a spouse?? Like any neglected housewife, Melissa pours herself a glass of wine and sits on the couch waiting for her man to show her some attention.
Will Melissa Rycroft embrace playing housewife with The Bachelor?
Next, Stephanie, Jillian and Molly get the group date and head to a harbor cruise, where Jason promises to show them “The Best of Seattle” (isn’t that a coffee slogan?).
He chooses this moment to bring up Sleepless in Seattle again, when they motor past the houseboat where Tom Hanks lived in the movie. Jason pulls Stephanie aside for alone time, but you don’t really see any spark between them.
