The Bachelorette: Vancouver, Vulgarity and Girlfriend-Gate

So how about that Bachelorette last night? It was so good, I had to put up a post.

Last night's highlights included the men leaving the bunkhouse, and, like the Jeffersons, they moved on up to a dee-lux bachelor pad in Vancouver. Being that this is Jillian's hometown, she of course was ready to greet her men with the old stand-by squeal, while unfortunately wearing one of the most heinous dresses I've ever seen! It makes me wonder if these guys are really feeling our little girl-next-door, or are they just in it for the free helicopter rides?

The first guy sent packing last night was Mark ... or was it Mike? I kept getting these two guys confused. Anyhoo, after boozing it up on a mountaintop (wherein Jillian pulled a Cher Horowitz and stepped into some bad lighting -- rewatch if you don't know what I'm talking about ... Jillian looked like she aged about 15 years in this segment!), it is the baseball camp owner who must ride the gondola of doom home. (Hey, it beats a bus!) The pizza guy somehow managed to stay ... probably because of his sob story about having his heart broken ... something which Jill is all too familiar with.

And after a "who-done-it" Clue-inspired cocktail party, Jillian also sends home crazy Dave and light-in-the-loafers, Juan (shout out to you Steph.) Oh, crazy Dave. This guy proved that first impression roses may not be all they were once cracked up to be. Storming the house, Incredible Hulk style, dropping constant "f-bombs", throwing ice into empty highballs, and proving at a moment's notice, he would rip Juan's face apart ... it's no wonder why Jill cut him. Oh wait. She didn't cut him after that moment. No, Jillian thought she would wait one more episode so that Dave could compliment her by calling her a "liar" after she did not seem to share in his "ass" enthusiasm. Dave also revealed that he loved how Jillian "doesn't give a f**k" because she just sits there with her "t**ts" hanging out. Wait a minute. You mean these are NOT terms of endearment? Huh.

But it was fitting that Dave was sent home packing alongside his nemesis, Juan. And while I was afraid of possible altercations while this duo exited, it didn't compare to the fear I found myself having as a result of Tanner P.(aranoid). Hello?! Was anyone else afraid he was going to pull out some pistols he possibly had hidden from the Western movie date, and shoot up the place? I mean, homeboy was a little on edge to say the least. His eyes all crazy and red. Exclaiming "I swear to God, Juan, if you f**king look at me one more time ...." Alls I gots to say is, YIKES! This loose cannon, I feel, is one to watch out for in future episodes. The little foot-freaky snitch might be his own demise.

So what did you all think? Does one of Jillian's gentlemen callers secretly have a girlfriend back home? Or are all of the guys just jealous of Wes and trying to spread nasty rumors about him like a bunch of high school girls? Did you all of a sudden find yourself developing a major sweet spot for wine maker, Jesse, despite that unfortunate white newsboy cap? And how about break-dancer Michael on the curling date? That s**t was hilarious! Lastly, how much did you relate to our little Jill when she did her happy dance behind the door after kissing Kiptyn goodnight? We've all done it ... haven't we?

American Idol Results: Adam Lambert PERFORMS!!! Oh yeah, and There Was a Double Elimination.

Okay, guys, here we go with the Idol results.  Am I the only one who is sick of these results show intro package fake-outs?  You know, wherein they try and make us believe like there were Holyfield vocal TKOs last night?  (Cut to a judge exclamatory:  "Yo, those vocals were hot!!"  Then cut to Andrew Garcia holding a mic that looks as if it just turned gold right before our very eyes.)  Um, am I living in some crazy Harry Potter land?  Because I'm pretty sure this does not accurately reflect what went down on performance night at all.  But then again, I guess if they show what really went down, it would not pump me, the viewer, up.  Unlike those high voltage group sings ... those aren't watered down or lip sunk at all.  Oh what's that?!  Ms. Sleepy Weird-Eyed Gal Herself, Brooke White, and some dude I've never heard of are set to sing tonight?!!!  Well somebody better hold me back! 

Okay okay.  Who peed in my Fruity Pepples, right?  I am excited to see Adam …

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…

American Idol: R & B Night ... What a Difference an Usher Makes!

Well three cheers for Usher, is alls I got to say about last night's American Idol, R & B Night. If only all of them would have heeded the advice of the sunglassed one, it may have been a perfect night. But alas, Tim Urban remains unchanged, and so I'll settle for a vastly improved night instead.
Usher on Lee: Believe in Yourself. Although he may think he still belongs in the paint shop, Lee Dewyze really has a shot at winning this whole shin dig. Oh, simply the song title alone "Treat Her Like a Lady" mixed in with that gritty voice = one hot and bothered Elizabeth. You can treat me like a lady, Lee. Any ol' time. (Okay, sorry if just made anyone feel uncomfortable there.) Usher and I just ask one thing of you: Believe in yourself! Simon told you this may be the night your life changes forever, yet I still think you will come out next week with the ever present look of fear in those glistening baby blues. Not to mention, your desire to eat your guitar pick ri…
