KSR Bachelor Running Diary Episode One: A Mineral Coordinator Cries A LOT

bachelor

When it comes to The Bachelor, I’m here for three things. The crazy, the tears, and the daddy issues. While you can argue that those three things are one in the same, you don’t get a say in this argument because you are reading, not writing.  If you are here for an in depth review of what girl he should pick, go somewhere else. We’re not going to be friends. I have no interest in the final outcome of the show. The future happiness or despair of the contestants on this show is of no concern to me. What do you say we get started? Are you psyched? I’m Psyched!

 

If you’re like me you’re tall, have a valid driver’s license, and you’re easy to get along with. But you were also left wanting more after the Bachelor preview episode from Sunday night. Sure, we got to hear some crazy things said and see a crazy thing or two done, but the good stuff starts now. I apologize for not posting this yesterday. I totally would have had it existed at that time. But it didn’t. I had a prior engagement scheduled for Monday night (watching the BCS game with my friends) and was unable to watch The Bachelor and write about it that night. However it has been said that “good things come to those who wait.” Dennis Rodman has been talking a lot lately, let’s attribute that quote to him.

Here is how I predict this episode will go. The show will start off with a montage of Juan Pablo leaving his daughter and family behind in Miami. Then they will pan to shots of him running or sitting alone on a beach with his shirt off. Possibly a small workout scene. Then there will be a short preview of things they do during the season. Probably bungee jumping, slow dancing, and swimming. Then Easy Job Chris Harrison will appear and talk to him for a few minutes. THEN the good stuff starts happening.

Here we go…

8:00- “This season, on The Bachelor we’ll do a lot of insanely romantic stuff that real couples would NEVER do when they start dating so that all the girls think they are madly in love with Juan Pablo and therefore backstab each other and cry their eyes out on national television!!! It all starts right now on ABC on the season premiere of The Bachelor!!”

8:02- I couldn’t have been more right in my prediction of the shirtless montage.

8:04- Girls, if you’re Dad ever said the words “I’m going to L.A. to find a wife and a step mom for my daughter,” he doesn’t really love you.

8:06- Juan Pablo running shirtless on the beach!! Who would have thought?!?!

8:10-8:15- It’s tough to accept the fact that I’ll never get back the five minutes I spent watching Juan Pablo and Sean have a conversation about the best ways to find love on a TV show.

8:25- I can’t write about that massage scene without getting fired. I just can’t. I mean, what in all the hell was that ABC? I got my Mom a massage for Christmas and now I just feel gross. I don’t know if this massage girl is ALL the crazy, but she’s most of it.

8:29- “You’ll never be completely dressed without a smile on your face” sounds like a quote Lacy saw on her BFF’s Instagram

As the girls arrive, I will fill out a short questionnaire about each one that I created in my mind yesterday at work. I have a feeling this will be a long post and I love hate angering the “I’m here for sports” people, so click the “read more” link and we’ll get started.

I was going to post a picture of each girl here but multiple pictures slow down the site. Oh, and I’m lazy and that would take forever. If you are interested, go to ABC.COM or just watch the show like the rest of us. The crazies ladies are arriving, let’s meet them one by one and get some questions answered.

9:04- Are we done yet?

9:11- The massage girl with the craziest eyes reminds me of the red headed girl from Wedding Crashers. I can totally see her saying “I’ll find you!” at some point and it’s disturbing.

9:17- Presented without comment, the following things were just said about roses:

“I have such a great life but my love life has sucked. If anyone here deserves a rose it’s me.”

“It’s not just a rose, it’s my future. I came out here because I am ready to settle down and have a family so to me that rose is one step closer to finding that.”

9:18- When asked how many kids she wanted to have, Chelsea said “All of them.” Not a realistic amount, in my opinion.

9:20- Captain Obvious told Juan Pablo “You’ve been the center of everyone’s attention tonight.” Grass is green, the sky is blue, blah blah freakin’ blah.

9:22- Hey, girl that has been crying for 20 minutes on the first night. Go find him. Please. And make a good impression. We’re going to need you to make a deep run. I have a feeling you are suuuper crazy.

9:28-  She’s still crying.

9:30- No longer crying. She got her one on one time. It couldn’t have gone worse. Reminded me of this scene from Tommy Boy. “New guy’s in the corner puking his guts out!”

9:36- Shardeen was not impressed with getting the first impression rose. She’s like Jason Dufner after he won the PGA last year. dufner

9:42- “Ladies, welcome to the first rose ceremony. Sharleen, you got the first impression rose so you have nothing to worry about tonight.” (Except that I just compared her to Jason Dufner)

9:43- Juan Pablo: “Clare.”   Clare: “Me? *points to herself*”    Juan Pablo, probably: “No, the other girl who faked being pregnant tonight.”

9:44- Three roses in and girls are already huffing and puffing. LOCK IT UP! Show some pride for crying out loud. There are 16 roses left.

9:46- Dog Lover may not have gainful employment, but she’s the proud owner of a bright red rose.

9:46:15- Cassandra, the “Former NBA dancer”, gets a rose. That’s back to back roses for unemployed girls. HE’S HEATING UP!

9:46:30- Danielle puts an end to the unemployed rose streak, not to mention my hopes and dreams of getting to type “HE’S ON FIRE!!!!!!!” and complete my NBA Jam joke. I hate you, Danielle.

9:46:45- For Chelsea, the best part about getting a rose has to be not having to go back to Ohio.

9:47- We have our first attempted robbery of the night! Upon hearing the word “Kat”, Kylie starts toward him. This doesn’t even register in the realm of awkward. I’m so uncomfortable my hands are sweating. Not totally her fault though. Juan Pablo speaks english not well. They should have someone off camera holding up cards with the name he is trying to say. It’ll keep my hands from having to sweat.

9:48- Victoria, who I remember nothing about, gets a rose. Four roses left. Way more than four girls without a rose. It looks like 11:57 on New Years Eve in that room right now. Single girls are FRANTIC.

9:48:30- Another unemployed rose goes to Free Spirit. If you’re scoring at home that’s one rose and zero shoes for Free Spirit.

9:49- The final rose goes to Amy L., whoever that person is. The butthurt goes to the girls without roses.

9:50- Crazy eyes massage girl didn’t make the cut. She is this season’s “50 Shades of Grey” girl. Good luck to her back at that massage parlor that may or may not double as a set for adult movies.

9:51- The ginger that tried to commit the rose robbery: “It’s disappointing to get sent home the first night because I could picture my life with Juan Pablo and I could picture it even more after meeting him.” She got what? Five minutes with him? And she could picture her life with him. She isn’t normal.

9:52- Homegirl is crying again. When it comes to January 6th, 2014, nobody had a worse day than her. Who had the best day? Easy. Temperature screenshots. She said, “I just can’t believe that I’m going home on the first night. I’ve been through a lot…” (Yeah, you’ve mentioned that) “and I’m sick and tired of people looking at me and feeling sorry for me and this is another thing and it just really sucks. I’m a genuine person and I want to find my best friend and I want to make a life with somebody. It’s all I want.” Hey, that can’t be all you want. Somebody’s got to coordinate those minerals you ole Mineral Coordinator you.

 

We’re over 4,000 words in, so I’ll leave you with a video of the most ridiculous introductions of the night.

John, I was first team All-State. I can put the ball anywhere I want to. I'll make it rain out here.

    Ahh, hello again, Bachelor posts. Good to have you back. Cue the hate in 5, 4, 3, 2…

    I can’t remember if anyone has ever pointed this out before, but “The Bachelor” is not UK sports related.

    What a glorious day it will be.

    Last time I ever post on this topic. I am a firm believer in the “don’t like it, skip it” rule. But I would just like to point out that is embarrassing. I mean, we constantly make fun of UL fans for all the stupid stuff they say and post. This is exactly the kind of thing we would make fun of them for.

    I get the fact that you’re kind of making fun of it, alright we get it. Doesn’t excuse this kind of admiration. If I want to be embarrassed of the human race there are dozens of shows I can watch: Real Housewives, Super Sweet 16, Kardashians, etc… But I don’t cause it’s way too sad to be funny. I’m all for posting non-UK stuff on this site, I actually love most of it. And the stuff I don’t love, I shutup about (except BTI posts). But this, this is sooo bad.

    And with that, no more posts by me on Bachelor articles.



    • you will be back
      2:58 pm January 8, 2014 Permalink

      you will be back…commenting again on this…getting more mad and angry with every post.

      of course, we won’t know because of new fake poster names…but you will be back!

    asdf,

    You are a genius and obviously too smart for this site! You should find a site that is worthy of your intellectual perusing and not waste your time with the shenanigans of this deplorable blog. Let me apologize for everyone that thinks this site is any good……..we are truly sorry and hope this site hasn’t wasted too much of your time from your other academic endeavors.

    If you don’t like the bach posts, please just don’t open them. No harm no foul guys. I find it funny as my wife watches the nonsense stuff. I resorted to watching the national football game streaming on my laptop with earbuds and the wife watched this. Can we get more Monday night UK games 🙂

    For those who say it is not UK sports related…..you could argue it IS related to basketball! It is a fast paste competition where Juan Pablo will attempt to drive into the lane, penetrate and score! Watch out for palming!



    • what is "fast paste"?

      Is that really fast-drying Elmer’s glue? *fast-paced…..

    I still find this embarrassing for the site, but whatever….At least they found the “More…” link instead of dumping on the front page.

    Funkhouser would be a perfect place for this…. Isn’t that what it’s for?



    • Michael F. Jox
      9:45 am January 8, 2014 Permalink

      They would put it there but no one would read it. Click on Funkhouser, check the articles out there and how many comments they have…Usually about 2. But if you’re saying that it should be there for that very reason, then I’m all with you cause this is garbage.

    8:59 am January 8, 2014 Permalink

    The only reason KSR keeps posting these things is because people complain about them. Matt basically said that on the radio show. They think the negative comments are hilarious. If you want The Bachelor post to go away, ignore it. Plain and simple.

    I wish they would do a “Redneck” version of this show. Come to the Blue Ridge Mountains and get some of these fine folks around here and have them go on. Then it would be an awesome show. I might call FOX right now and see if they are interested. Can you imagine?? The rose ceremonies could be held at Walmart(s) on Saturday afternoon. Every damn Tennessee and UNC fan in this are would be there!! I’m in Asheville. I can pick out a Tennessee fan like no other!! Blue Ridge Bachelor, or how about Appalacha Bachelor. It could be a damn gold mine!!

      There was a “Redneck” version on CMT it’s called Sweet Home Alabama (no joke).

    Thank you KSR for the diversity in your excellent website. Reading the same thing over and over again about Matt Elam and BP / UL gets on our nerves. I have not seen The Bachelor but I am sure it is a fine show. I like that KSR is not all UK sports, all the time. We, as fans, need a break and we need to understand the fine points of our glorious entertainment business. Where would we be if this site was dedicated to UK sports? Just another Dynasty Defenders????? Lord help us.

    I am glad to have made your day! I had to bring back the “fast paste” – it has been a while since I have seen mention of it in the comment section. And despite the pseudonym, it is Ms. not Sir. 🙂

    Too funny!!!!! I’ve even got my friends reading this now. I love it, and if you only want sports posts, then just skip this one, what’s the big deal. It’s just for fun and makes for some big laughs, especially if you’re like myself and you watch the show, then it makes it even more hilarious.

    I don’t understand how anyone can watch this garbage! I would rather watch Andy Griffith reruns.

    You crybabies want a UK sports related post? What you should be asking yourselves throughout this article is:
    Which former/current UK basketball player should be the next Bachelor?

    Watch out Jerry Springer,you’ve got some real competition.Of course these gals have been on your show.

    Anyway,this post beats the hell out of reading about Matt Elam,Charlie Strong,Petrino,Pitino and the Cards.

    I would never waste my time watching this garbage on TV, but I wouldn’t miss your recap posts. This was hilarious. Well done. Except one thing – It’s “wandering eyes,” not “wondering eyes.”

    Sadly after so many Bachelor recap posts, the rednecks have yet to catch on to the joke.

    How many people who complain about these posts go home and watch the intellectual tire fire known as “Duck Dynasty”?

    Please stop wasting space on here with this. If I wanted to read about or watch the bachelor, I would do it somewhere else. This garbage doesn’t belong on KSR. Every time I see these posts I start looking for a different news source for UK athletics.

    Aaron, this is funny stuff. A couple of grammar errors in there, but I don’t blame you since there’s over 4000 words. Keep doing your thing buddy. I’m a first time watcher of the bachelor and to the people bashing this post on ksr, grow up. If you actually watched the show and read these posts you would freaking laugh your butt off.

      Escape goat?!? Hahaha!!! That’s fabulous. I heard Matt also moonlights as an evacuation platypus. The word is “scapegoat” dipsh*t. Love the post. Always funny. Love the comments. Always truly amazing. I go to Rupp. Cheer my heart out and feel an instant bond. These are my people! Then I read the comments section of this post and cringe. But that’s life. You can’t always choose your family.

    Aaron, you need a ride out of this tough situation? If so, I’ll be your escape goat. It’s my favorite thing to do. That, and zig-zagging up mountainsides.
