You know how it is in a relationship: the sooner the end comes, the better. So, for a few of Desiree Hartsock’s Bachelorette 2013 dudes, the end is coming, and they’re probably better off for it. Well, other than the fact that we won’t remember they existed in a coupla weeks. (Other than you, Nick Roy — we see you in our dreams, sawing us in half while we sleep.)

On tonight’s second episode of The Bachelorette, the herd will be thinned from 19 guys down to a sweet 16. Which, it’s a proven fact, is the perfect number of manmosas to imbibe. Or something. Sorry, we’ve been testing out a new sangria recipe in preparation for this episode... Something tells us that watching Des kiss multiple dudes is going to bring on some serious Sean Lowe flashbacks. (Oh god, the world record. Why won’t it stop haunting us?)

But just which three of Des’ dudes are going to fly the mancoop tonight? According to our pal Reality Steve, the three guys who are eliminated on Desiree’s second LA episode are Nick MucciRobert "Bobby" Graham, and Will Reese. Strange, ain’t it, that Des gave Nick a first impression rose (well, a pre-ceremony rose) in the Season 9 premiere, yet she sends him packing the next week? We can’t wait to see what it is he did — or didn’t do — to get sent home so soon.

Without Will around to give out “free high-fives” (we’d love to meet the person who once paid for a high-five), the world will be a less Bikram-y place. And let us all raise a fruit-filled glass to sign-spinning “inventor” Bobby, who not only doesn’t get a date tonight, but also gets unceremoniously ousted. Word is, there’s a little more to it than we might think — even though the fact that he’s a sign spinner would’ve been reason enough to send him home...
