Am I the only one that didn't feel sorry for Sarah when she left? I kept saying, she played the field and got played. She let someone go that really seemed to care, only to get caught up in the Daniel competition. What a waste of time! And what an illogical move? Was she simply so bored with the game that she wanted to go home? I was boring of her, anyway. There is something about her that is either too laid back, almost like she smoked five blunts before she utters each word; or as if she's purposely trying to keep that too-calm tone of voice that becomes unbearably annoying after awhile. And she baked a cake for a guy that puts her in competition with two others? Seriously? Can we have next season without her? Honestly, she's not that interesting, from that dull cow-like stare to her tonal pitch.
And Daniel! Is this guy on drugs? I don't get it. Three gals competing for him? He reminds me of a Saturday Night Live skit where two brothers Yortuk (Dan Aykroyd) and Georg (Steve Martin), "two wild and crazy guys" emigrated from Czechoslovakia view themselves as sexy and capable of picking up some "foxes." It's almost as if Daniel is following their script. His dialogue is odd like that. I think he may be trying to be self-deprecating, at least one would hope this is his direction, but his act just comes off weird. Almost slightly pervy, weird.
Izzy...wow! Where in her serial dating book did it tell her to date one guy, see a better looking man and then, just dump her date? Did I miss that in Dating 101? And these gals wonder why they are single! Jeez! If Lampman doesn't reciprocate her feelings, and I don't think he will, then she's on the fast track home. And she's not memorable enough to call back for another Paradise, is she?
Ashley is the perfect definition of "How to screw up everything you touch." Talk about vindictive. She makes the perfect villain. She's mean. She's manipulative. She's self-pitying. She's imperious. Disney could use her for their next Cruella Deville or Natasha Fatale type. And she couldn't push Jered away any more if she loaded him on the tongs of a forklift and shoved him over the edge of a cliff. Frankly, she's beginning to make Chad look sane, in comparison.
Evan, who was once almost normal, now reminds me of Pe-Pe le Pew. I smell halitosis when he speaks. I see bland faces with sickening sweet smiles. I think of every guy I ever wanted to run from who always caught up and asked, "So where did you go?" There is just something so un-sexy about him that I'm left thinking of the scent of brussel sprouts. And when he kisses Carly, I almost pity the girl. Yet, she chose him. Out of desperation, maybe?
Josh is still moaning. This guy's sound effects would halt any inclination to introduce him to your folks. I mean, can you imagine saying, "Mom, Dad? This is my boyfriend, Josh," and then having him go, "mmmmmmhhhh, yeah, mmmmmhh." It's almost creepy. Both Amanda and him wanted a date card. Why? Can't they suck face just about anywhere? I think the date would be wasted on them.
I think what keeps me watching this, when I gave up watching the After Paradise show, (after watching Sean Lowe chastise Chad Johnson, and wonder how hypocritical it was that the 'King of Mean' was taking task with 'King Lush', for being rude) is that there are so many despicable types on this show. The twins come to mind, especially showing off their dumb and dumber routine. I mean, this defines reality is stranger than fiction. And they wonder why they remain single?
