Bachelorette Episode 6: All Aboard, Jillian Whittles the 8 Down to 5

Tonight is the final Bachelorette episode filmed in Canada. The scenes take place aboard the Rocky Mountaineer and in Lake Louise and Banff. You can watch an extended preview here. Note: as always, spoilers ahead.

There’s an individual dinner date on board the train. Say goodbye to Texas bartender Robby. He’s let off with his luggage at the next stop.

Bachelorette: Wes Bares All, Or Does He?

Editing is key to The Bachelorette. The producers have been throwing country singer Wes Hayden under the bus, big time, since the beginning. The episode guides keep asking when Jillian will catch on to him. Does he deserve it, or has he been honest about why he went on the show? Even if he went on the show for publicity, does that preclude him from developing real feelings for Jillian?

One other thing the promo gives away: It’s Robby that goes home next week. Those of us following the screencaps knew that already. He’s on the train to Banff, but he doesn’t get a Home Town Date. Bye, Robby. (Say goodbye to Jake too next week, although he will make another appearance at a hotel in Austin when Wes has his hometown date.) And it looks like break-dancer Michael will be the 5th with a home town date — in addition to Reid, Kip, Wes and Jesse.

If you are a Wes hater, don’t despair. Wes will go home at the rose ceremony following the home town dates. He doesn’t get to Spain. (Update 6/22: Maybe not.) Kip and Reid are in Spain for sure, and it looks like Ed makes his comeback there. Jesse probably makes it as well, but it’s doubtful he goes any further.

Final three prediction for Hawaii: Kip, Ed and Reid.

Bachelorette Episode 5: Whistler Dates and Drama

Jillian will go from 10 guys down to 8 tonight. My predictions: Michael, Kip and Jesse get roses for their 1:1 dates. Someone wants to go home, most likely Ed. Since we know that Kip, Reid, Wes and Jesse get home town dates, they are still around. If there’s a 5th hometown date, I think it goes to Michael, whose parents live in California. Jake will probably go next week after the Banff rose ceremony, and then he he shows up in Austin when Wes has his HTD. Robby is in screencaps on the train next week, so he’s safe tonight but likely will go next week.

Who is left? Tanner and Mark. Do they go home tonight, or is it Ed and Tanner or Ed and Mark? If the Ed drama is not just a producers’ tease, and he really leaves, I’ll go with Ed and Mark. If Ed doesn’t refuse his rose, or Jillian talks him into staying, I’ll go with Tanner and Mark. Continue reading

Bachelorette Extended Sneak Peek of Whistler Dates

TV Grapevine has an extended sneak preview for Monday night’s Bachelorette showing Jillian on dates in Whistler with Michael, Kip and Jesse.

It ends with the ABC promo showing drama with Ed and Jillian worried her chances for love are over.

Two of the ten will go home this week. Right now, I’m thinking they are Tanner and Mark. Stay tuned.

Bachelorette (Episode 4) in Vancouver: 13 to 10

Spoilers ahead: Don’t read if you want to be surprised.

Jillian Harris takes her 13 remaining bachelors to her home town of Vancouver this week. All together, there will be three Canadian episodes. In addition to Vancouver, there will be Whistler and then one featuring a train ride on the Rocky Mountaineer to Banff, where the last Canadian rose ceremony is held. At the end of the Canadian episodes, she’s down to 5 guys who then go on hometown dates.

As for Vancouver’s episode tonight:

Dates include a romantic dinner at Grouse Mountain Resort, a kayaking excursion to Granville Island, a romantic picnic in Stanley Park, and a Vancouver harbour cruise aboard the classic luxury yacht, Pacific Yellowfin, complete with a Dungeness crab dinner hosted by adventure travel outfitter Exposure. Jillian also has the guys flex their muscles in a competitive match of curling!

Kip goes on the kayaking excursion. It’s certain he gets a rose. The picnic in Stanley Park/dinner on Grouse Mountain date is a 2 on 1 date with Mark and Mike. Mike won’t get a rose and will go home before the rose ceremony. The five bachelors on the winning curling match team will go on the yacht date. Anger-prone David acts like a jerk on the yacht. I think he goes home tonight. Continue reading

Bachelorette Episode 3: Spoilers and Recap

Spoiler Alert: Tonight the Bachelorette and her 16 remaining suitors are still in L.A. You’ll see a one-on-one rappelling date with Ed that goes well and one with Sasha at an automotive museum (and then cruising in a Ferrari) that doesn’t end well. Jillian twirls the rose around in her hand in the Ferrari, but declines to give it to Sasha. Why? Perhaps because he’s said he’s never been in love. Who needs a romantic kindergartner?

It’s also the Western episode (like the General Hospital episode of last season) where the guys and Jillian act out scenes, almost all involving kissing. I think this is where Brad makes his fatal mistake that gets him sent home at the rose ceremony. Continue reading
