There seem to be two groups of bachelors on Emily Maynard’s The Bachelorette Season 8: There are the guys like Chris Bukowski, Jef Holm, and Sean Lowe who are maybe too reserved and shy for their own good, and confident guys like Alessandro Goulart, Kalon McMahon, and Ryan Bowers who keep blurting out things that turn people off.
Rosemaster Chris Harrison wrote about some of the good and bad moves bachelors made in his Entertainment Weekly blog on Episode 3. Here are some highlights.
Bobblehead Chris' kiss: "Chris got the first real, legitimate kiss from Emily, but how it happened is very interesting and brings up a recurring theme this season. The guys are so thoughtful of Emily and the fact that she’s a single mom that they’re almost too respectful, if that’s possible. Emily was sending signal after signal for Chris to go for it but he ended up waiting ’til the end of the concert and at that point he still asked her for permission. In the end he got the kiss and definitely got Emily’s interest."
Ryan keeps stepping in it: "Ryan was the first to make a couple of major mistakes this week. First he thought it was a good idea to go over and interrupt Emily talking with her girlfriends. It wasn’t. Then he took this bad move to a whole other level when he laid some stunning knowledge on the ladies: He told them that if Emily gained weight after they married things would change, and that he would love her but he wouldn’t love on her as much. You know, it’s one thing to think like that, but he took it to a whole other level by actually saying it to her and her friends. Ryan, you have some digging out to do!"
Sean is a genetic gift! "Sean got the rose on this group date and probably deserved it after Emily’s friends sexually harassed him all afternoon."
Kalon can’t stop talking: “Kalon has been a lightning rod for attention from the start but up to this point he’s been stirring it up with the guys and never with Emily. Tonight, though, Kalon was talking a mile a minute and not listening at all to Emily. He started out with this little gem, telling Emily ‘I’ve never had to share much in my life.’ Then, when Emily had the audacity to try and speak during this conversation he told her, ‘I love it when you talk but I wish you’d let me finish.’ Emily put it best when she said later, ‘I like tall, skinny, and funny. I don’t like tall, skinny, and condescending.’”
Emily's crush on Arie Luyendyk, Jr.: "Emily’s date with Arie was incredible from start to finish. First of all, Emily had a crush on Arie from the moment she met him. Secondly, Dolly Parton and Dollywood hold a very special place in Emily’s heart. [...] If I ever give up my deliberation room duties I might have to call Dolly to fill my spot. As good as Chris’ date went, this one went even better. Part of that was Emily getting to meet Dolly, but it had much more to do with her getting to be with Arie."
Preview of Ryan vs. Arie: "There was one more incident that didn’t seem like much that will be talked about later. That moment where Emily ran into Arie in the hall and they shared a kiss will have a ripple effect through the house, especially for Ryan. We had to cover a lot this week and it’s only getting better as we move forward and the stakes are raised."
