Since we would normally be starting the Bachelorette about now, and are denied this will be a fun (I hope) substitute.   The format is a little wonky, but I'm in.

I think Kristy is going to regret keeping the drunk flooring guy.

Kristy was on Brad Womack's first season of the Bachelor back in 2007.  She was sent home around week 5 or 6.  

I knew I recognized Dr. Marcus.  Then it dawned on me that he was on Survivor.

I hope that Kristy makes the smart choice and doesn't waste this opportunity on the wrong guy.  I am surprised they didn't announce to us who had the lowest sperm count.

Yes, he was the “normal” one on Survivor: Gabon’s cast of crazy people, or at least that was what thought until he signed up for this show for whatever reason.

I don’t think there is a man on this planet who would want it announced to the world that he has the lowest sperm count. 
 

In a normal season this show is probably cancelled before it even airs, but thanks to the virus we get to see this actually aired on broadcast primetime, though it’s not like FOX hasn’t aired trashier shows in the past such as I Wanna Marry Harry. It’s not even that bad but who is this even being made for.

Does this episode get better? I soldiered through the sperm donation in what appeared to be porta-potties and then the trophy for most swimmers and I was out. As someone who has viewed every season of the Bachelor franchise, watched whatshername marry a millionaire, cheered for singles to break up "couples" on an island, and rolled my eyes at weddings where the bride and groom had never met, I thought I had seen it all. However, I felt actually skeeved by show. Wondering if I should give it another chance.

No. It doesn't get better. It remains the same level of trashy.

Ok, that bear was hilarious.  Hugging the one that was crouched down.

These guys must not watch The Bachelor.   NEVER spend your one-on-one time talking about the other contestants.    That's usually a ticket home.   I'm surprised the tattler stayed, but I suspect he's on thin ice.

I hope Angelo gets a ration of shit from his co-workers today for the exit interview we saw last night. 

I sort of understand why Kristy was skeeved about Walker's profession; I babysat once or twice for a mortician family that lived over the funeral home and knowing I was right over the funeral parlor creeped me out. On the other hand, not every mortician lives over the funeral parlor, and lots of funeral homes are multigenerational businesses so having a family should not be out of the question just because of his job. One of my sisters is married to a mortician; my BIL is at least the 3rd generation in the family business, maybe even the fourth or fifth. But, Walker liked to travel A LOT, and maybe not just to the "Crate and Barrel" funeral director conventions. If he wasn't willing to give that up then sending him home made sense.

I haven't got a favorite baby daddy for Kristy yet.

I’m having trouble remembering names . . .oh well.  She seemed to really like the wrestler.  The doctor seems nice, but bland.  Aussie guy is getting frustrated “They keep showing me messing up!”  Dude!  Didn’t you watch some American style tv before signing up?  We live for that sh**!  And what was with the guy with the stuffed animal and weird hat?  And the flooring guy frat boy!  He was NEVER going to stick around once he’d knocked her up!  He peed on her house!  What a douche!

I'm surprised everyone who went for the talk went home. I do appreciate that the show is not dragging this out by only sending one person at at a time.

I can’t tell most of the men apart, so it might help me a lot.  Especially since I don’t have a favorite for her either.

The thing that strikes me is that she is articulate in explaining her choices.  No wonder she didn’t succeed on the Bachelor.

I cannot believe she sent Alan home. I had him pegged as top 2, if not the overall winner.  I am shocked.

I really liked how decisive she was in sending Alan home, saying that in her 20s she'd have chased after a guy who didn't really seem to be into her, but that she had learned a lot and was now sending that guy packing.  I hope things work out either here or in real life for her.

Count me in as another one who thought Alan was going all the way to the final 2, if there is such a thing on this show. Now I'm thinking it may come down to the guy with the glasses who was mobbed by all the little kids and the guy with the chocolate-covered strawberries.

And I still can't remember their names. Gary and Kyle, maybe?

 

Edited to add:

 

So I went google surfing to get the guys names, and I was right, it was Gary and Kyle. Someone has been watching the social media of each of the guys and Kristy, and found some pictures of vacation water sports and references to celery juice that Kristy has in common with one of the guys:

Spoiler

Kyle. Should have figured, he's a salesman.

Agreed.

Also, I thought Kyle looked like a terrible kisser. I don't care for him at all.

I'm guessing the two guys are trash talking Stewart. I still like him anyways.

I also thought Keith's analysis may have been right about most of the guys left.

So I wonder what the (cheesy) ritual will be when she makes her final pick:

Kristie to the guy who comes in second: I'm sorry, you're a great guy but I just don't see us starting a family together

Kristie to the guy she picks: Congratulations! While I don't see us being a family here's a sperm container for you to fill and a contract for you to sign!

Wow, Kristy and Kristin must have really pissed off the makeup people before the elimination ceremony.

I wonder if they showed Kristie some of  the dailies of Keith stomping around like Godzilla before she sent him home. Do they have an obligation to let her know one of the contestants has anger management issues before she spends any alone time with him or possibly picks him as the "winner"? If this were an episode of UnReal they would be deliberately putting her in harm's way for the drama and ratings but here she dodged a potential bullet. Of course, if this were an episode of UnReal Keith's meltdowns would also have been an act rather than his real response to the situations.

There must be a lot of interactions we aren't seeing if Kristy has considered Marcus a front-runner up to this point. She hasn't spent much time with him at all that we've seen.

So far, the spoiler could still be true.

 

Also, I lust after both of those houses.

For some reason I got invested in this stupid show. It’s a show to have on while doing other things mostly but I’ve still unironically enjoyed this and became invested in the outcome.
 

Really thought Marcus was done. He is playing the Survivor game trying to make “big moves” but that’s not going to help on a dating show. Although at the end Kristy kind of basically admitted he is keeping him around because he is a doctor and has money lol.

They may be on "holiday" programming next week because of July 4th.
