Bachelorette Link-up Bash!

Today is the first official bachelorette link-up that Kasey and I are hosting.

I usually watch the episode by myself, so this is the second best thing, getting to read all of your opinions of the previous night's episode. Don't fret if you didn't get a chance to watch the show last night or could link-up today. The link-up will be live until Friday so watch the episode on or Hulu and then link-up your recap. All Kasey and I ask is if read Reality Steve or any other spoiler alters, DON'T share them with the rest of them. Or else just write in your post SPOILER ALERT, that is all we ask. This link-up is meant to be fun, silly and a chance to "hang out" with a bunch of girls. Without further ado, here is my recap!
Meet the Men episode: Desiree met 25 guys and had to send 10 home the first home. It is all about the first impression and clearly the guys got that memo for the most part. These are my opinion on first impressions but not all of them, in the order of when they stepped out of the limo, Drew, what a sweetie, I could see him lasting! Brad had a cute idea with the wishbone. I definitely like Bryden, lets blame it on the military uniform and call it even ok? Kasey is from San Luis Obispo and I love that area so I'm in on him already but the hashtags idea, keep brainstorming! If Will keeps high fiving throughout the entire episode and beyond that, I am over him. Mikey, one word, beefcake. Jonathan, no words... Then hello Zak, apparently he forgot the memo to wear a shirt! James was super nervous, poor guy. Good luck to that guy wearing the suit of armor all night long! By the way, my husband who never watches the show walked in the room last night and said I am rooting for Chris from Seattle! Mike R, sorry but McSteamy is on Grey's Anatomy and is a doctor, not a dentist. Hey Des, if you can't pronounce his name, hm... either learn it or move on. Micah, that suit, I think you need to head back to the drawing board. Nick was really sweet with that poem and very down to earth. Ben and his son seriously stole my heart.
After the meeting of the guys, then let the feeding frenzy begin! Who is she currently talking to right now and how I can get my time to talk with her? Who has the first rose and how can I talk smack about him? Good call on sending Jonathan home before the rose ceremony, he was way creepy anyways.
The rose ceremony: Magician is gone, awkward dancing and dip first impression is gone. Diogo, did you even come out of the limo? Apparently I missed it.
So that's my recap, check out the fabulous Kasey's for this link-up, then add your Bachelorette re-cap and check out the other girls! Also if you could post the button Kasey made for this link-up, that would be super. Thanks! You know where to find this link-up, every Tuesday for the next several weeks until Desiree finds a husband.

I love this! I'm going to try and link up at least one of these weeks!

Last night was just great, I laughed so much!

Meg, great review!
they did try really hard on their first impressions--I just wish some of them had thought through it a little bit more! haha. Ben and his son were so cute, and I like that his bio on mentions Jesus (only one that I did I think). but I did get a little nervous about Brody's mom being his BFF. fun to link up with you!! can't wait to continue the conversation this season :)

Hi there, lovely! Hope you had a good holiday weekend. :)


Stesha said...

This season is going to get interesting!!! I can already feel it, I am not even sure who I am rooting for right now!! Eeeeek!


Kasey Lynne said...

I feel like ABC could've picked some better guys for Desiree. I feel like a lot of them are just plain weirdos!!

Ben seems like he ends up being a jerk in the end, so my favorite as of right now is Bryden. He's so sweet and you can tell that he's genuine. I'm excited to see what happens!

hi lovely! sounds like the season is going to be very interesting.
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for always leaving your lovely comments and reading my blog. I've been AWOL- work has kept me on my toes this past little while and I've not been able to keep in touch with my favourite blogs. Looking forward to catching up with your recent! hurrah! :)

I went to college with Johnathan. I'm pretty sure that was set up, he was definitely kind of a creeper/class clown type personality that was down for anything.

Sarah and Stewart said...

Eeeeek, I forgot to record this and my husband is going to kill me. He seriously loves this show way more than I do, LOL.

Diogo was the one dressed as the knight, lol. I am so glad I found this linkup, I am obsessed! :)

Kerry @ Made For Real said...

Hysterical. Hubs and I were losing hope for Desiree after the first fifteen arrived. Lets just say it won't be hard for her to eliminate options each week. Mercy!

Oh my gosh - I didn't even see this till now, now I wanna do it!
