Week 3: Burning Questions

Every week, we eagerly tune into The Bachelor to watch how our favorite televised love story will unfold, and each week, we’re left with so many questions. What the heck did that contestant say? What in the world is Sean thinking? Why did she wear that? We needed a place to air out these questions and, hopefully, find some answers. Here are three things that left us wondering this week.

1. Will Catherine and Jackie ever emerge as legitimate contenders?

We’re three weeks into the madness, and we have yet to hear from either Catherine or Jackie. Every season, there are two or three women who completely fade into the background, leaving America wondering if we should consider them a quiet threat or dead women walking. There’s really no equation or pattern to determine which category these women typically fall into either. For example, Nicki Sterling from Ben’s season was considered to be a “dark horse.” Nobody had a clue who she was early on, but then, seemingly out of nowhere, she made her way into the top three. On the other hand, however, there have been dozens of women who made an early exit that was just as quiet as their entrance.

So, which category will Catherine and Jackie fall into? Well, we don’t have a frickin’ clue to be honest. We’ve heard them talk a combined three minutes at most, so obviously, we know very little about these women. Jackie appears to have a good heart and genuine personality, but we also know that smitten look Sean had on his face when Catherine got out of the limo indicates there’s a strong attraction between those two. Either way, we hope we find out the answer to this question before we completely forget about them.

2. Is Sean really into Leslie H.?

The answer to this question has to be “no,” right? If you’ve been keeping up with who we’ve had on the Hot Seat, you’ll remember Leslie has been there every week (Hint: we aren’t changing our minds either). With the exception of her crying episode on the ride home from last week’s volleyball game, Leslie has been as quiet as Catherine and Jackie have been. Yet somehow, it appears she gets quite a bit of time with Sean this week. Could this be the start of a connection between Sean and Leslie? Or perhaps Sean will realize through this one-on-one time that Leslie isn’t the one for him. We’ll go with the latter.

3. Did Kristy come on The Bachelor for the career exposure and attention?

Obviously, this is a question we won’t get the answer to this week or probably ever, but we wanted to throw it out there anyway. In case you couldn’t tell, we weren’t really big Kristy fans during her short-lived stint on The Bachelor. The girl hardly ever mentioned Sean until she lost that volleyball game, and the only excitement we ever saw out of her came when talking about her career. Remember the photo shoot for Harlequin novels? Kristy couldn’t contain herself! She was all like, “O.M.G. This is totally my thing! I am so in my element! I love doing this. I love modeling. This is so me. Ahhhhh!” Not once did she mention Sean. Sure, she cried a little when she got eliminated last week, but it honestly seemed more like a self-pity cry. Perhaps we’re being a bit harsh and judgmental, but it’s not hard to tell when someone is being fake. Besides, it wouldn’t be the first time a model came on the show to promote herself.

What do you all think of Kristy? Was she there for the fame? Take our poll below or tweet us @bachelorburnbk.

The Hot Seat

Every week, we’ll pick one or two ladies who we think are in danger of getting sent home the following episode. Whether it’s because they’re causing tension in the mansion, had a night of drunken woopsies or just simply aren’t connecting with Sean, these ladies could find themselves in the Bachelor Burn Book Hot Seat … a place that would make even Regina George feel threatened.

Call us stubborn. Call us hard-headed. Call us whatever you want, but we are not taking Leslie H. out of this gosh darn Hot Seat. We will continue to insist that Leslie is just some rando contestant who’s simply gotten lucky enough to make it past the first few rounds. We’re sure Leslie is super nice and genuine, but we are just not buying that she’s a serious contender for Sean’s heart. Hey, maybe we’re wrong, but we’re not budging on this one until we absolutely have to.

Daniella seems like the next most obvious choice here. As we’ve chronicled the past few weeks, Daniella is a mess. From the strange handshake she taught Sean to her untamed hair, this girl is all out of sorts. And who could forget her glassy eyes and slurred speech, undoubtedly from all the liquor she’s been consuming. Add all this up and what do you get? Daniella with her bags packed full of the mansion’s alcohol and no rose.
