Yet again with the late recap. Perhaps tomorrow you’ll be shocked and see a recap from this evening’s episode – no promises though. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Here’s my rundown.
The Good: Ben left. I’ve never liked him, so I wasn’t sad to see him go.
I’m not at all surprised that he had a girlfriend back home. I was surprised by Michelle M.’s reaction though. Maybe something was going on that they didn’t show, but if not, she seriously overreacted. Major overkill with the tears.
The Bad: The whole thing with Michelle K. at the beginning. I thought they were joking when they did the ‘reenactment’ of the whole situation. The Bachelor/Bachelorette is pretty corny at times, but this was definitely high up there with the corn factor.
The Ugly: Elise. Elise, Elise, Elise. I was basically like this every time she spoke during the episode.
Overall, I like that they keep adding new people every week; it keeps the show interesting. I’m skeptical about the quality of relationships that could come out of this though. On one hand, it seems like the situation could work out better than a typical Bachelor/Bachelorette scenario because there is so much extra time available to spend together. They can also see the other person in a much more relaxed atmosphere, which I think is when most people are truly themselves. On the other hand, Paradise seems so immature and high school-like that I keep expecting them to break out the cheerleading and football uniforms any time now.
What do you think?
