Previously on the Bachelorette... Do we really need this? If you didn't bother to watch, you would have come to the site and read last week's summary...
Fast forward to this evening's personality reality.
Chris joins the gentlemen with this week's activities... "We'll have three dates... One for the man most compatible with Meredith. One date a two-on-one for finishers 2 & 3. Our third date will be for the rest of the losers.
Men rev your engines, here's the first tape (throws it to Ryan R - who rubs it like Aladdin's lamp - does he think that will help?).
Meredith (wearing an unbecoming Chinese sort of outfit) - IAN, are you ready for a night of good fortune? Do you know how to use chopsticks?
* I may be out of the loop, but since when do chopsticks have a part in a romantic date? *
Meredith and Ian take off for Chinatown where Ian becomes her dragon fighting knight and she asks,"Tell me more about you." He does great until the BIG question, "Are you ready to get married?"
Ian: "Are you kidding? I came on this show to have a great time and find a girlfriend. I wouldn't propose even if I was in love at the end of the show."
*thud* (Sir Ian fell off of his horse, but did he fall on his sword? Stay tuned...)
Meanwhile, back at the boy's house, the second tape arrives...
(commercial - Heinz ketchup's "Anticipation")
Who's got Animal Magnetism? Apparently Todd & Ryan M. We'll see their date tomorrow...Back to Chinatown...
Ian and Meredith do the nasty kiss. Chi Ching. Kiss # 1 of the night. She says, "Ian surprised me." Yeah, right. Day 2 Let's take the train to Santa Barbara (and the zoo). Ryan M speaks (ok, it is a constant) "Hmmmm, Meredith...what kind of food would you describe me as?"
"A turkey sandwich?" (Is that complementary? Turkey?) Now the brilliant (and loquacious) Ryan M gets the question returned to him (would you have asked the question if you didn't have a great answer?)... "Uh, pass to Todd."
"A smore, 'cuz you always want some more."
Gee, RyanM, couldn't you have thought of that? Nice job, Todd... looks like you'll be returning next week.
On to the zoo walk, walk, blah animal, blah animal, giraffe licks Todd's fingers, then completely slobbers RyanM - hope you liked that RyanM, it may be the only kiss you get!
RyanM pulls Meredith away for one-on-one time where she asks, "Tell me more about you." (uh, Toad er Todd, this is a good move if you want to return) and then it's off to dinner. RyanM needs a big roll of duct tape, he can't seem to zip his mouth. Todd, on the other hand, doesn't know what to do with blabbermouth, so sits on his hands. He must figure he's got a rose already.
So Meredith wonders, "Are all of the guys in this for the right reason?"
RyanM jumps in with both feet blah blah blah Rick, Rick, Rick, blah blah blah Rick, Rick, Rick. Oh, you don't care for Rick? Well we already know he's lacking personality, he's on tomorrow's date...
jump to the boy house...
Sean: "Rick, this isn't a game! You're a (&*$(*#&!" Hey, Sean, where have you been for 2 1/2 episodes... I'm not sure that Meredith has even met you yet, that's why you keep getting roses... But we're sure glad you picked the "Orange Glow Rick" for your target... Back to the zoo...
Why? RyanM is still yapping and Todd swallowed his tongue... don't get too attached to your roses boys!
