The Bachelorette.

After watching The Bachelor with Jake Pavelka and going crazy over what a sweetheart he was until he kept Vivenna around last season, I was ecstatic when they chose runner up Ali Fedotowsky as the next Bachelorette. I had adored her and rooted for he to win Jake's heart but she left after having to choose to go back to work or stay and she chose work. Like I always say, things happen for a reason and I'm sure the decision she made, she chose at the time for a reason and may she find happily ever after as the lucky bachelorette this season. I had missed the first episode but finally got to watch it when ABC.com posted it up and was up to date to watch tonight's second episode!

After watching the first episode, I didn't have much of any favorites, although some of these men made some very hard to forget first impressions. I've always said, first impressions mean everything and it's obvious the ones that made one heck of an entrance knows so too. Let's begin with Frank.

He was the first one who's video commentary played first in the first episode and although my first thoughts of him was "what a nerd", his personality is just adorable! He also got the first date with Ali where they had a picnic at night on top of a car, on top of Los Angeles overlooking the city lights and of course, he also got the first kiss. As of now, I think he's running up in first place!

Up next we have Justin who is also known as "Rated R" who's video commentary was ridiculously humorous but ended with a sweet touch of him sharing how much he loved his grandmother.

Of course, it's not easy being around 24 other men with the career which involves wearing an underwear and fighting/beating up other men so poor Justin was picked on by all the others and had to defend himself in the first episode and the second, which I am sure doesn't end there.

And then there's Jesse. Hands down the best looking guy out of all 25 bachelors! Who also happens to be the youngest! Normally I am not attracted to guys who have tattoos but on the second/tonight's episode where the guys got to participate in a beach and Speedo calendar photo shoot for charity and on his one on one date with Ali, Jesse apparently has his entire left shoulder covered with one of those typical tattoo designs and well, I found it kind of sexy!

Age: 26

In every first episode the Bachelor or Bachelorette is given 1 and only 1, special rose called the "First Impression Rose". This rose is given to only 1 of the 25 men who arrive and whoever makes a very great first impression receives the rose. From how I see it, this first impression rose is usually received by a person who's most likely to be one of the bottom remaining people and it wasn't a surprise when Roberto received it. Being the only Latin/Hispanic bachelor out of the bunch he sure impressed Ali by dancing with her and just being, well, himself. I'm also not into Latin or Hispanic men but Ali is sure feeling him.

And lastly, I'd like to end this post by saying how happy and relieved I am that Ali did not give Craig M. the Lord Farquaad look-a-like from Shrek/the evil douchebag a rose tonight because he was clearly such a bad seed. His video commentary showed him looking into a mirror selfobsorbing myself and going into a bar picking up girls. (ABC where in the world did you think this guy would be potential husband or a guy who would be ready for a serious relationship?) Anyways, keeping him around the house would of caused more drama and although most viewers including ABC would of loved that, good for Ali for being smart and letting him go.

He was such a bully to "Weatherman" Jonhathan, poor guy was picked on constantly by him since the first episode and arrival. Guys like Craig M. are great examples of men who clearly are not ready to settle down and is so full of themselves. Immature and slutty at the age of 30, men like Craig M. need to stick to girls like themselves (slutty and bitchy) and not attempt to get themselves involved in a relationship with girls who are looking for commitment and serious relationships. Ugh, he sickened me so much.

I was pretty happy with tonight's episode as I kind of find myself wanting to purchase the calendar they shot for charity! Lol. Would I be a dork if I really did buy it? You can buy it here.
