We also saw a one-on-one date with one of my favorite girls Ms. Molly..
She's cute. She's fun. She seems real. Is he going to pick her? Something tells me no. But I could be wrong, I need to see more. Then the last date was the group date. One very painful group date for those girls. I sat there thinking to myself that there is no way I could have sat through that if I was one of those girls. No wonder they were all crying. Sometimes ABC can be a bit ruthless. I know, I know we need ratings.It was extremely obvious he just wasn't into Megan and Shannon (SHOCKER!) I really think that Shannon must be different in real life, but she just came off weird to the rest of America. Seriously when she was begging him to keep her, I had flashbacks of how all girls are when they are 16 and just don't know how to play hard to get.
But the winner of the coveted "Giving Caitlin an Extreme Headache Award" goes to...

4 things in fact..
.. I think she means well, but let's be honest. He's not choosing her. Stephanie is sweet and it was nice to see her with her little girl, but she is just awkward, and I think she acts like Jason's mom. I was uncomfortable watching her try to kiss him.
I don't like how they are trying to squeeze drama out of this show. When they had the girls sit there and call everyone out, I thought it seemed like they were trying to make it one of those trashy VH1 shows. Like Rock of Love or something. And what's with all the random people singing?! I think I am a Bachelor purist :)
My top picks are still:

I guessed a lot of the girls he picked, and was shocked (as always) at some. These two in particular..
I know that they tried to edit it so that Shannon looked a bit crazy. But I think she may be a bit stalkerish, and I think that she seems like she may be currently dating someone.. (Jason in her mind) Her laugh reminded me of that cheerleader who was in the Top Two with Deanna when it came to Brad Womack.. who I realize now was the smartest man to get rid of those two girls. Deanna turned out to be a self centered pill, and the other girl got married to an ex boyfriend almost as soon as Brad dumped her. I liked how Brad was honest, and think he got a bad rap. Oops, getting off subject and season...
And Stephanie? I'm sorry, but she seems a bit old and mannish. Let's look at her again. Yep, Michael Jacksons upper lip.. or lack there of. I'm being harsh. She just seems a bit old. I think he kept her because of the sob story.
Also a new twist. (well sort of) The attempt to make the show feel like Survivor. By having the girls vote on who they wanted kicked out. But in a not so shocking twist was who actually got a rose. (Jessica called that one.)
(If you have seen Flight of the Conchords, she reminded me of their one crazy fan.)
#1 pick: Naomi
#3 pick: Lauren
#4 pick: Molly
