Is it just us or are there a lot of feelings being felt over at Bachelor Mansion? Poor Desiree Hartsock has spent the past three episodes providing a clearly much-needed shoulder to cry on for men who, let’s be honest, don’t look like the crybaby type. But looks, they say, can be deceiving.

That’s clearly the case with beefed-up beau Mikey Tenerelli, or as we now refer to him, Mikey Tender-elli. In a deleted scene from Episode 3, Mikey takes Des aside during the group pool party to make a confession: “I’m feeling insecure right now like TO THE MAX [emphasis added].”

To clarify, he adds: “I just feel so weird. It’s not a comfortable feeling.”

Um, we’re sorry you feel emotions? To her credit, Des makes it look like she cares, but even she isn’t a good enough actress to make it seem like she enjoys kissing Mikey.

“All right. All right,” she sternly repeats during their makeout. Mikey’s interpretation: Oh yeah. She’s into it.

When Mikey finally stops gumming Des’ teeth, it looks like the worst is over. Then he reaches for his crotch.

“Oh would you like a mint by the way?” he asks as he offers the Bachelorette a slightly soggy looking mint. Great post-kiss question, dude.

Somehow Mikey walks away from all of this feeling like he “made a really, really strong connection with Des today” and “pretty confident I’ll be getting a rose tonight.”

And yes, we all know he does, but after seeing this clip we’ve got to ask why and for how much longer.
