This fourth episode of the current season of The Bachelorette marked a turning point in Jillian Harris' journey. From David getting nixed, to Kiptyn emerging as a contender and nasty rumors circulating, things started to get a bit intense.
The venerable host and pimp of The Bachelorette, Chris Harrison, was kind enough as always to divulge, in his weekly blog with EW, some of what went on behind the scenes of the ABC hit. Here are some of his thoughts and comments ...
In my mind, this season really starts now. As you could probably tell, the goofy fun and games are over and things have now taken a very serious turn.
From here on out this season of The Bachelorette is a fantastic roller coaster ride that I really can't compare with any other season we've had.
This is the first season ever where three weeks in we've left our main house and never returned. We do have one more rose ceremony in Los Angeles later on but not at this house. Personally, I loved the travel and felt like it really fit for this season.
Jillian Harris clearly loved being back home in Vancouver. It gave her a little more confidence and an extra spring in her step being on her home turf.
Jillian definitely had a thing for Kiptyn since the moment he stepped out of the limo. She told me how gorgeous she thought he was on night one.
Their one-on-one date in Vancouver couldn't have gone better in her eyes.
I'm going to go head and try to answer next week's question now. No, that wasn't Jillian's actual loft. She does live just down the street and they are very similar, but for privacy purposes we had to use a different loft.
Jillian wanted you to know she really did make her homemade pasta sauce and salad dressing. She did it all in 45 minutes and she claims it was really good.
You could tell she loved this date and was as giddy as a school girl. Did you notice the little happy dance she did right after she closed the door? Classic Jilli.
Then came the "Olympic" group date with 50 guys. The truth is, every four years I find myself entranced by this damn sport during the Olympics.
Yeah, I said it. I like frozen shuffleboard. It's hypnotic.
Let me just say next that I sympathize with Jake.
