The Bachelor 2 - Episode 1 Summary

'Back to The Bachelor Pad' By greeneyes
Original Airdate: October 2, 2002

First off, I have to say, that I missed the first five minutes of the program last night because I live in hurricane country (Hattiesburg, Mississippi), and we had weather updates at the beginning of every hour last night. (Also, this will be a long summary, because of introductions of the 25 women. Please be kind, this is my first attempt at a summary.)

With that said, we now join our regularly scheduled program, already in progress …

Chris Harrison, our host, is grilling Aaron about the previous season. And Aaron admits that he wanted to see Alex propose to Amanda last year, or as he so romatically put it – “pull the trigger.”

Next we finally get to meet the women … Let the Parade of States begin (oops, sorry, I forgot this is not the Miss America pageant), let the parade of limos begin …

ADVERTISEMENT
Our first woman is Gwen, she is 31, a platinum blonde with straight hair, from Philadelphia and a Pharmaceutical Consultant. She says that she has given up and is sick of bars. She “wants to be the center of the Bachelor’s attention” (Yeah, honey, that will be easy, there are 24 other women that are saying the same thing.)

Erin, 24 from Houston, and an Interior Designer. Another blonde, with long, straight hair – noticing a pattern yet?
(Was anyone else looking at her and thinking Kim from the first season was back for more media whoring?)

Frances, 30, our first brunette, she’s from San Francisco. She is a Strategic Planning Analyst (someone translate that job title into real terms). She says she’s not sure why she hasn’t found the right one yet, but she’s willing to take this risk. (And show her complete desperation on national TV)

Helene, 27, from Gloucester City, NJ. She works as a school psychologist (will she get enough material from this experience to help her with counseling or what, or will she need counseling herself after this is over?) She said that she had a fiancée and they broke up. (Can we say rebound?)

Brooke, 22, from Tuscaloosa, AL. Brooke is a college student. She is definitely our southern belle, and totally looks the part, another blonde, and has the accent to boot. She says that she wants to find a man who will give her butterflies when he kisses her. (Keep chasing butterflies, sugar.)

Angela, 27, from Kansas City, MO. She is a registered nurse. Says she is shy. (Let’s see, an almost hometown girl – do you think she might make the cut? And where was she last year when Rhonda needed her nursing skills?)

Lori, 26, from Dallas, she works as a dance instructor. Finally, a little more diversity with the women, she’s African-American. In her interview clip, she said, that “give me six weeks for someone to like me and they’ll like me. It’s the smile.” (Foreshadowing here? With that comment, I say she won’t make the 15. And what was with the teeth?)

Kyla, 22, from Salt Lake City, UT, she is an airline supervisor, and a singer (interesting combination). Another blondish girl, she is a Mormon, and a virgin, and will be until she is married. (With that strong belief in religion and abstinence, how did she ever make it on this show? Perhaps, ABC was trying to keep this a little more PG rated. Don’t think it will work though.)

Christi – 23, from Boise, ID. She is a former Miss Idaho, and currently a marketing specialist. She is also blonde, with a big smile, and big teeth. She thinks that having competed in a Miss America pageant will help her deal with this competition and make a connection. (Yeah, a pageant for scholarship money, and competing for a man are sooo similar!)

Hayley, 28 from Oswego, OR, she is a clothing store manager. She thinks that her timing has just been off with other men.

Dana, 24 from Beverly Hills, CA. She is in Radio Sales. She thinks this will be a good way to meet her husband, and can’t wait to tell her family, and children when they have them. (First, she is from Beverly Hills, and not an actress or bartender, and she is on a reality show? Now, that’s a surprise, how did that happen? Second, won’t their children be proud when they find out how Mommy and Daddy met on the Bachelor)

Heather, 24, from Walnut Creek, CA. Yet another blonde. Has a degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. She mentions that she has been dating a lot lately, and has met some great people, but not someone who makes her toes tingle. (If she has been dating a lot, why subject yourself to this, and compete against 24 other women? Just research to help with her future practice, I guess. Miss Tingly Toes should be kind of fun to watch.)

Anindita, 27, a lawyer from New York City. Her parents had an arranged marriage, and sees being on the Bachelor as similar circumstances (HUH????)

Suzanne, 33 from Redondo Beach, CA. She is a brunette and a flight attendant. She’s not you’re typical American woman; she wants life full of adventure. (Comments about her will be saved for later.)

Amber, 26, from Chapel Hill, NC. She is a counselor. Says that people look at her and see dumb blonds, but she is really very smart. (As soon as she says she really is smart, she giggles, like even she doesn’t believe it. Enough said.)

Merrilee, 28, a blonde, from Forked River, NJ. She is an elementary school teacher. She said that everyone in her life is married, but she is not rushing into anything. She wants to find someone who loves her as much as she loves him (Isn’t that sweet? But not rushing into anything – she’s on a show trying to win a man, and get engaged in 6 weeks, I don’t know, but that falls under my definition of rushing.)

Christy (#2) – 24, from Phoenix, she’s an x-ray technician. She is a brunette. In her clip, she says that she wants to be married by age 26, and have two babies by the time she’s 30. (All I’m going to say is she is screaming HIGH MAINTENANCE! Run Aaron, run.)

Heather (#2) – 30, from Dallas. Brunette and she is a flight attendant. She follows in Christi’s (Miss ID) footsteps and compares this to competing in the Miss Texas pageant. (If you saw any commercials with the girl saying she just wants the “Big ole rock on my finger” this is her. Later in the episode, she says she will be Aaron’s personal flight attendant. So much for keeping this more PG.)

Suzi – 28, from Richmond, VA. She is another blonde, and is a communications specialist. The first thing out of her mother’s mouth when she said she was going on The Bachelor was “Don’t you have to have big bosoms to be on that show?” (One of the best lines from the entire night. Do you think she could have been referring to our beloved Amanda from season one?)

Liangy. She is 30, from Miami. She works as a paralegal and a graphic designer. She says she is has what it takes, and is ready for a commitment as a wife, lover, and partner. (She just comes across as very b*tc*y and overly confident. Darling, just take yourself off that little pedestal you have yourself on.)

Camille, 29, from Los Angeles. She is blondish, and an actress (believe it or not our only actress in the group.) In her clip, she says she keeps meeting the same type of guys, and that after a few dates they ask her about being with another woman, and if she’s interested in threesomes. (Honey, just a guess, but having a guy see you on this show may not necessarily help that problem or is that something you want to continue?)

Erin (#2), 25, from Philadelphia. She works in Q & A at TV Guide. She said that she does not believe in love at first sight, she thinks that is lust. (They seemed to be attracted to each other immediately, I think she may be around for a while.)

Cari, 29, she also has long, straight blonde hair. And is a school teacher from Granite City, IL. Says that everyone from high school is married and there is no one to even hang out with in her town. (No good comment on her, doesn't seem to stand out that much, probably gone this episode.)

Fatima, 22. She’s a college student from Long Beach, CA. She seems to be very bubbly and outgoing. She said that a lot of people look at her and think she is a wild party girl. But she’s really a good girl, and she goes to church every weekend. (Just what is she doing to give them the impression of being wild and a partier – do you think going on national TV and parading around for a man might have something to do with that, hmmmmm)

And our last bachelorette is Shannon, 26, from Hicksville, NY. She is another blonde and works as a graphic artist. Says that every little girl dreams of her wedding and walking down the aisle, and the best outcome of this if for her dream to come true. (Awww, isn’t that cute?)
