“Why should Caesar just get to stomp around like a giant while the rest of us try not to get smushed under his big feet? Brutus is just as cute as Caesar, right? Brutus is just as smart as Caesar, people totally like Brutus just as much as they like Caesar, and when did it become okay for one person to be the boss of everybody because that’s not what Rome is about! We should totally just STAB CAESAR!” – Gretchen Wieners, Mean Girls
Well, looks like this week on The Bachelor, Caesar was finally stabbed – er, I mean, Tierra was finally sent home. While she didn’t necessarily control everyone as Regina George controlled her minions in the infamous movie, Mean Girls, Tierra arguably had some incredible manipulation skills that held some type of power (spell) over our Beloved Sean.
But – we shall approach that happiest of decisions later on.
This week, the girls (now down to Desiree, Katharine, Lesley, Lindsay, AshLee, and Tierra) and Sean were treated to the beautiful island of St. Croix in the Virgin Islands. Ahh, yes, love was definitely in the tropical air – as were tears, inevitably, as each episode surely brings us. If not from the girls being sent home, but from our surely dependable and psychotic contestant, Tierra.
“How many times do you get to fly into St. Croix on a sea plane?” Never? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Thanks for pointing that out, Sean.
Also, I liked Lesley’s line, “You could totally fall in love here – it’s so romantic.” Well, lady, I damn sure hope you could, because if you can’t fall in love here, you can’t fall in love anywhere.
The first one to receive a date card is a fan favorite and a tortured soul – AshLee. But before she could even get excited about it, one could hear an annoying buzz in the corner… Tierra, stating, “The cougar’s back in town.” Um, 1. No one asked you to speak; 2. Rude; 3. No one asked you to speak. I would love if The Bachelor did follow ups on contestants who don’t win to see where they are now, or five years from their show. I’d dig seeing if Tierra even got close to roping in a man after this season premiered of her being no less than a crazy person.
The orphan-turned-love-hopeful made strides last episode when she took a plunge with Sean by offering him to blindfold her.
But this episode, viewers were treated to a much more exciting plunge (that didn’t make us uncomfortable to watch) – one from off the top of a yacht and into the clear blue waters of St. Croix. And then the viewers collectively sighed.
Next week, hometown dates – bring on the drama!
