Bachelor4.3text

And welcome back to The Bachelor! In this episode, we have our round three eliminations. We started out with 7 contestants…in Round 1 we said goodbye to Ansuya. In Round 2, we said farewell to Raven. Who will be next?

03-01-16_4-02-59 PM

Everyone has arrived in the garden, awaiting Dalton’s decision.

03-01-16_4-03-15 PM

I just want you all to know that it has been amazing getting to know all of you. You are all thoughtful, kind, attractive ladies and I’m a lucky guy.

And the first participant moving on to round 4 is….

03-01-16_4-04-03 PM

Dalton: Sabrina, I think we continue to connect on a very real level. Our relationship has a lot of potential, and I hope you’ll join me in this next round.

03-01-16_4-05-14 PM

Dalton: Karissa, it is very obvious that there is chemistry between us. I hope our relationship can continue to grow deeper as well.

03-01-16_4-05-44 PM

And the third participant…

03-01-16_4-06-13 PM

Dalton: Erica…

03-01-16_4-06-41 PM

Erica: Sorry about the plate. I was *really* hungry.

Dalton: :::laughs::: It’s fine. Erica…well, you make me laugh, and I feel like we could easily be best friends. I hope you join me for the next round so we can see if there is a spark between us.

And finally…

03-01-16_4-08-35 PM

Dalton: Penelope, I feel like we need more time. Our wavelengths don’t seem to be in sync, but I find that intriguing. Will you give us one more shot?

That means the person going home is…

03-01-16_4-09-45 PM

Sorry, Sabrina. You seemed shocked by this! Sadly, Dalton isn’t the prince you are looking for. Perhaps next season?

03-01-16_4-54-48 PM

Some of the potential partners decided to snag a few extra minutes with the Bachelor after the ceremony.

03-01-16_4-54-56 PM

Dalton practiced more of his guitar playing while Karissa and Erica made up lyrics about the pain of having to move furniture in order to properly vacuum.

03-01-16_4-56-45 PM

Dalton: Speaking of furniture…

Erica: I know! We need a basketball hoop.

Dalton: Not what I was going to say… 

03-01-16_4-56-34 PM

Erica and Dalton exchanged some flirtations.

03-01-16_4-58-19 PM

Sabrina and Dalton watched the Simolympics while eating burgers for dinner.

BACHELOR 4.3: EPISODE 9-First Kiss

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome back to the Bachelor! Last episode, Erica won our round 3 group activity and earned some one-on-one time with Dalton. In this episode, Dalton will choose one participant to join him on a date.

03-01-16_11-31-15 AM

Dalton chose Karissa for his third one-on-one. We know there is chemistry between them, but is there the potential for more?

03-01-16_11-35-51 AM

Dalton: Are you into music? I play a bit of guitar.

Karissa: I’m into the band Larry and the Llamas.

03-01-16_11-36-50 AM

Dalton: I’m into all kinds of sports, even boxing.

03-01-16_11-37-03 AM

Dalton: Have you traveled a lot?

Karissa is thinking ‘say something romantic’.

03-01-16_11-37-20 AM

Dalton: You know, I find you extremely attractive.

 03-01-16_11-39-02 AM

He always needs to use the rest room at the most inconvenient times.

03-01-16_11-40-23 AM

After their conversation, they spent some time on the dance floor.

03-01-16_11-41-56 AM

We also had the first kiss of this series!

03-01-16_12-59-20 PM

When they returned to the farm house, Dalton was feeling both romantic and inspired. He went up to the attic to do some painting. I think he is working on a recreation of the scene from Lady and the Tramp…he is not a painter.

 

BACHELOR 4.3: EPISODE 8- The Garden Grows

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome back to the start of the third round of the Bachelor! Dalton, the handsome do-good-er who only eats Grilled Cheese when it’s raining and prefers cupcakes over sports cars is searching for his soulmate!

In round 1, we said goodbye to Ansuya. In round 2, we said farewell to Raven. Who will leave this round?

03-01-16_8-36-32 AM

As we’ve mentioned before, Dalton loves the great outdoors. He likes camping, hiking, fishing and gardening. He’d prefer a partner who doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty once and awhile.

03-01-16_8-40-11 AM

As such, today’s challenge was a gardening activity! The participants planted seedlings in the yard of the farm house. The participant who enjoyed themselves the most would win some alone time with Dalton. Karissa was the first to dig in.

03-01-16_8-40-03 AM

Simone and Penelope each did their share, but Sabrina preferred to observe and drink a cocktail.

03-01-16_8-39-59 AM

As you might have guessed, Erica left everyone in the dust (or potting soil!) when it came to this activity. Not only did she enthusiastically work her own plot, she assisted others, and discussed gardening with anyone who was interested. By the evening, many contestants were exhausted, but she was invigorated.

03-01-16_8-49-00 AM

Dalton: I think this series of the Bachelor has been pretty drama-free so far. I was warned their could be some issues. Have you noticed anything?

Erica: Not really. I think everyone gets along pretty well. 

03-01-16_8-49-44 AM

Erica: So, I heard you are a huge fan of cupcakes?

03-01-16_8-49-55 AM

Dalton: Your eyes are like swirling cups of coffee and your skin is the vanilla foam on top of coffee.

Erica: Are you new at this whole flirting thing?

03-01-16_8-50-02 AM

Erica: Tell me something about yourself.

Dalton: I don’t like bugs.

03-01-16_8-50-31 AM

While Dalton was reminiscing about his days in highschool, Erica attempted to pull the same move Penelope tried last night.

03-01-16_8-50-25 AM

Dalton didn’t fall for it, but he didn’t get too upset either. He just politely extricated himself, and went to use the restroom.

03-01-16_9-45-28 AM

Who gets up at 8 am and craves Mac n’ Cheese for breakfast? That guy!

Who will get the 1 on 1 date this round? Find out in our next episode!

 

Bachelor 4.3: Episode 7- Penelope Steps It Up

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome to the next episode of the Bachelor! Last time, Raven was our second romantic interest to leave the show. Our first was Ansuya.

Before the next group activity, someone decides to take matters into their own hands…

02-22-16_3-31-28 PM

Penelope crept into Dalton’s room to get some extra one-on-one time. Dalton appreciated the effort, so he invited her to sit on his sofa.

02-22-16_3-31-59 PM

She didn’t waste anytime moving closer to the Dalton. He didn’t seem to mind this time.

02-22-16_3-32-38 PM

Since he was responding so well to her flirtations, Penelope tried to take things a little bit further…

02-22-16_3-32-30 PM

We’ve all seen that move before.

02-22-16_3-33-34 PM

Nope…Dalton likes to take things slow and warm up to the romance.

02-22-16_3-33-40 PM

Despite the awkwardness, they continued with their conversation for a little bit longer.

02-22-16_3-33-52 PM

Penelope recovered from the situation by keeping the conversation non-romantic.

02-22-16_3-33-46 PM

They discussed cars and cupcakes, and eating cupcakes while in cars.

Is Dalton just playing hard to get? Does Penelope like a challenge? Or is there just no chemistry? Perhaps we’ll find out in the next episode!

Bachelor 4.3: Episode #5-Incognito

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome to tonight’s episode of the Bachelor! We are looking to find a romantic match for Dalton Montgomery who only likes to eat grilled cheese when it’s raining (sung to the tune of 3am by Matchbox20).

02-09-16_11-29-21 AM

Dalton decided he needed to know more about Sabrina. He sensed they had similar values (both very kind, caring and good), but he needed to know if there was chemistry.

02-09-16_11-32-31 AM

For the round 2 one-on-one, Dalton took Sabrina to a cafe.

02-09-16_11-33-32 AM

Sabrina enjoyed talking about dollhouses.

02-09-16_11-33-41 AM

And dinosaurs. And when dinosaurs attack dollhouses.

02-09-16_11-33-47 AM

And robots. Sabrina likes toys, it seems.

02-09-16_11-34-01 AM

They chatted about art…

02-09-16_11-35-24 AM

…and discussed their favorite foods.

02-09-16_11-35-29 AM

There was also much flirting. Overall, the date seemed pretty successful.

02-09-16_11-25-36 AM

The following morning Dalton enjoyed some sports TV with his breakfast. After, he began preparations for that evenings Incognito Party.

02-09-16_1-50-18 PM

Dalton was dressed as a maid, Karissa went all out with an astronaut costume.

02-09-16_1-51-05 PM

Raven was also a maid.

02-09-16_1-53-19 PM

Penelope was the bravest of them all- look at that clown costume!

For once, no one was a hot dog.

02-09-16_1-53-10 PM

They mainly spent time in the kitchen, chatting and eating food.

02-09-16_2-02-06 PM

This was a pretty mild, no-drama round. Perhaps things will heat up soon!

Next time: The second elimination!

Any guesses as to who will be on the chopping block? Post in the comments!

02-07-16_8-34-46 PM.png

Erica discovered a very large microscope in the attic.

02-09-16_9-27-14 AM

Somebody partied a little too hard last night…I discovered Karissa asleep in the hot tub…

02-09-16_9-35-03 AM

Today’s group activity is to go to one of Dalton’s favorite places- the gym!

02-09-16_9-32-04 AM

02-09-16_9-33-27 AM

Sabrina seemed happy working out.

02-09-16_9-33-10 AM

Karissa preferred to eat a bowl of cereal and enjoy the view.

02-09-16_9-35-58 AM

At the end of this activity, whichever contestant is in the best mood will get some 1-on-1 time with Dalton.

02-09-16_9-32-40 AM

Raven headed straight for the punching bag.

02-09-16_9-34-28 AM

Erica found a hot trainer to show her how to improve her technique.

02-09-16_9-34-01 AM

Looking good Bob Pancakes.

At the end of the night, Sabrina was in the best mood out of everyone and earned some one-on-one time with the Bachelor.

They met outside of the gym, by the fountains.

Dalton prefers to eat his grilled cheese when it’s rainy outside.

Next Episode: It’s the Round 2 1-on-1…who will Dalton choose?

Bachelor 4.3: Episode 2- A Walk in the Park

Bachelor4.3text

Welcome to tonight’s episode of the Bachelor! We are looking to find a romantic match for Dalton Montgomery the kind-hearted soul who is looking for a woman that doesn’t mind woohooing in a rocket ship.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll concerning the images with the user interface vs. those without. It looks like about three-quarters of you would like to see the UI in at least some of the images, and the other quarter of you couldn’t decide. I’ve set the camera to snap the UI shots. Like I mentioned, it (for some reason) doesn’t use that setting in camera mode…so if I want to line-up the camera better to get a specific shot, we won’t see the UI. Also, I’m in the habit of switching to camera mode, so it will also be based on how often I remember. I’m excited to have those conversation bubbles back, though!!!

Twas the night before the first one on one and all through the farmhouse mansion not a contestant was stirring…

02-07-16_9-48-38 AM

…except for Karissa….she was literally stirring. Here we have Karrissa making a midnight snack.

02-07-16_12-11-39 PM

After introductions, it was time for the Bachelor to choose his first one-on-one. The Bachelor has a method to choosing his one-on-ones. He selects someone he wants to know more about…where he doesn’t know where the relationship stands.

He didn’t select Karissa…he felt confident of his attraction to her. Erica, also a potential front-runner, he didn’t select because he’s comfortable with the compatibility of their personalities.

02-07-16_12-37-56 PM

He selected Simone for his first one-on-one.

02-07-16_12-42-55 PM

They went to the park for their date.

02-07-16_1-42-51 PM

They spent the majority of the date sitting on a park bench and getting to know one another.

02-07-16_1-44-03 PM

Simone showed an interest in Dalton’s guitar-playing.

02-07-16_1-44-37 PM

Dalton told her about his parents’ divorce.

02-07-16_1-44-44 PM

And how he got extra toys out of the deal.

02-07-16_1-44-50 PM

And how their breakup was caused by a misunderstanding in the men’s bathroom.

02-07-16_1-44-55 PM

There was an Alpaca involved….it was complicated. Sometimes I think Dalton shares too much.

Overall, their conversation was interesting, friendly and fun…but in no way romantic.

Next episode: a house party!
