|And there was shirtless skiing. Naturally.|
The Inappropriate Pop Culture Reference Rose: Bachelor Ben himself! While trekking up the Golden Gate Bridge with "Ph.D. Candidate" Emily, who happened to be afraid of heights, he reached out to her by quipping, "Talk to me, Goose." Though I found the Top Gun allusion pretty damn cute, it might not have been the best time to invoke a beloved character's horrific and untimely death after falling from a great height.
|Followed by a scene that only takes place between Maverick and Goose in slash fic.|
The She's Just Not That Into You Rose: After Brittney (you might remember her as the one who brought her grandma to opening night) got a one-on-one date card, she bounced. Before the date. I mean, at least wait around to see if he's going to make you walk up the Golden Gate Bridge before you go.
|She wheeled her "I'm outta here" suitcase right on into the party.|
|Pictured: A career and a relationship going nowhere.|
The I'm So Torn Rose: David Gray, who hung the moon, has apparently sold the rights to his wistful classic "This Year's Love" to The Bachelor. On the one hand, really David Gray?
|I expected better.|
The Is There a Doctor in the House (not you, Emily) Rose: Erika. Apparently the stress from Shawntel's unexpected appearance was a bit too much to handle on top of all that Spanx, Erika hit the deck in the middle of the Rose ceremony, As BB helpfully asked for water, "Ph.D. Candidate" Emily was on the case bringing orange juice. It is undetermined whether or not there was vodka in it.
|Jenna's not looking so bad right about now, eh?|
Quote of the Night Rose: Jaclyn for the delightful non sequitur "On a scale of 1 to 10 I'm going to throw up."
So BB threw us all a curve ball and sent home Lady Downfall Erika, Nauseous Jaclyn AND Master of the Macabre Jaclyn. Next week we're headed to Park City, Utah. The home of the Sundance Film Festival will never be the same.
