The Bachelorette Recap 6-22-09

Eight guys are left in this, the sixth episode of The Bachelorette. They guys get to join Jillian Harris on a private train ride across British Columbia and Alberta. The five guys left at the end of this episode get to take Jillian to their hometowns.

Robby, the bartender gets the first one-on-one date, which will take place on the train. Jillian says that being around Robby makes her feel 5-10 years younger. Robby shares that he’s ready to settle down, even though he’s only 25 and in between jobs. Jillian worries that he doesn’t know how he’s going to pay the bills and where he’s going to be. This leads Jillian to tell Robby that she feels like he is someone she could marry…five or ten years from now. The train stops and lets Robby off in the middle of the Canadian wilderness. Bye Robby. I think Jillian made a good decision. She even mentioned that he should maybe go to Bartending School, to which he replied, “I don’t know.” So, he’s calling himself a bartender, but he’s not even licensed? This kid is really nice, but he needs to get his act together concerning his occupation.

Wes, the country music singer, admits to the producers, “If there is anyone here for a hidden agenda it probably is me. Because I’ve worked for over a year on an album…I have nothing to lose. I have everything to gain.” What a conniving snake! Jillian, when will you see him for what he is? After sending Robby home, Jillian was resting in her train car, and Wes went in to play his game and “comfort” her. Jillian shares that she thought letting guys go would be easier, because she expected more jerks. Wes smiles to himself and tells her she needs to wait and see – there are a couple of jerks left. Wes admits to the producers, “The fame that I get from this, it’s almost like I taste it and I eat it… It becomes a part of me. There’s no doubt this will help me. I’m getting excited. This is fun… I’ll always have Jillian wrapped around my little finger.” This guy is unbelievable! Who wants to buy the music of a self-professed liar and con artist? He truly is disgusting.

The next morning, Jillian reveals that everyone but Reid, the realtor, gets a group date. They get to go snowshoeing at Emerald Lake, British Columbia. Jillian decides to play hide and seek, and Jake, the pilot (my favorite) finds her first and gets in a little cuddle time. Oh, I wish she’d pick him, but I have a feeling she won’t. Ugg.

Poor Reid is stuck on the train by himself while the other guys are on the group date. He starts chatting with the train staff and gets advice on sharing his feelings with Jillian and whether or not to wear his glasses on the date.

At the end of the group date, they have a cocktail party at a cozy lodge, and Jillian calls Jake aside. Jake shares that he would love to take her home to meet his family. Just as Jake is about to tell Jillian how he feels about her, some of the other guys come and interrupt them. Bummer!

Next, Kiptyn spends one-on-one time with Jillian. He shares outright that he likes Jillian. Kiptyn also gets his kissing time in with Jillian. That girl likes to smooch with him!

Michael, the break dance instructor decides to mix things up and in front of everyone, asks Jillian what she sleeps in. She says for everyday, just underwear and a tank top, but if she’s had a couple drinks, just underwear. Tanner P decides that it would be a good time to show Jillian what he wears, and pulls down his pants to show off his briefs. I think Tanner P just earned a “too tacky” point. Jillian shares that it was funny, yet awkward, and she’s not ready to see anyone’s package yet, even though it was huge (her words, not mine).

Tanner P spends one-on-one time with Jillian and rubs her feet. He says that because her feet are so soft, he wants to take her home to meet his family. *Sigh*…he’s just so childish and shallow. I believe there is a right girl out there for him, but it’s not Jillian.

Has anyone else noticed that most of the guys left are from Texas?

Jesse (not from Texas) shares how he feels about Jillian and how he knows his family will fall in love with her, and Jillian reaches out to kiss him. She hardly ever initiates the kisses with the guys, so I took this as a good sign. Jesse is my second favorite.

Tanner P admits to the other guys that he was the one who told Jillian about the fact that one of the guys has a girlfriend. Wes says that he can’t stand a tattle tail. Who is he to get in a tizzy because someone told? He’s a liar! Jake says that if he knew specifically who had a girlfriend, he would point that person out. Jesse says that if he knew, he wouldn’t tell because it’s not his business. Wes admits to the other guys that he’s already been on 6 shows and that’s good for publicity, and now he can “haul ass.”

At the end of the group date, Kiptyn gets the rose. Jake gets more one-on-one time with Jillian and tells her that he’s crazy about her. He tells the producers that he would love to marry her.

Reid and Jillian go snowboarding for their one-on-one date. When they warm up back at the hotel, they have meat fondue and Reid shares that that freaks him out because of the germs. Jillian is glad Reid feels comfortable enough to share who he really is.

The train ride ends in Banff, Alberta. Chris, the host, prompts Jillian to talk about Wes and whether or not she thinks he is here for his career. Jillian shares that she was worried about that at first, but she feels they really have a connection and she doesn’t think he knows how to lie. She knows he truly cares about her. Oh, Jillian, if you could only see!

Totally unexpected – Jillian did NOT give Jake a rose. That makes me SO sad. Tanner P also didn’t get a rose. I’m so sad for Jake. Jillian doesn’t really give Jillian a reason why she didn’t choose him.

The promos show that Jake goes back to tell Jillian that Wes has a girlfriend and hints that he is back in the show. Can’t wait to see!
