Bachelor In Paradise Anyone?

Alright, damnit.  You're incessant begging and pleading worked.  I'll recap the stupid show.  HOWEVER, I'm not writing a word until Chad leaves.  Mrs. SGIA made me (and I mean made me) watch the show last night and I have to admit that there is a lot of material to work with.  Much more material than Daniel had stitched into his Canadian speedo.

I'll post when I can and try to hit all of the highlights from the two nights a week that it's on, but I can't promise a post every show.  I'll try to deliver.

I feel like Michael Corleone in Godfather III.


  1. Yay! I'm so glad.

  2. Woo Hoo!!! Thank you, can't wait. Yes, lots of material there for you.

  3. Yay! It's so much more entertaining than The Bachelor/Bachelorette.

  6. Best news of the day. This will make the pain worth it.

  7. So does that mean we should expect a recap next week?

  11. Yes!!! You could not miss that! I made my husband watch it and he couldn't believe that a show so pointless existed, but he was very entertained. How could he not? :D By the way, Zika doesnt seem so bad right now, I guess it is because of the dry season that most of the country goes through theses months... But when november comes... Well, waiting for your recaps!

  12. Hey, Some Guy! Glad to hear you're going to recap this summer's horror show.

    I'm glad I didn't use that Michael Corleone reference because I was gonna use it for something else in my recap.

    Anyway, here's my first week. Late as ever.

  13. Best news ever!!!!! Thank you thank you thank you

  14. Emily - Please do not promo your blog on SGIA's blog.

    1. Okay I got this. In a nutshell;

      Chad who?

      Evan needs to kill his inner voice.

      Josh tries to suck Amanada's face off, just to show Nick.

      One of the twins gets drunk and the other one giggles.

      New dude can't tell them apart, unbeknownst to him.

      And it looks like Sarah will burn her bridge with the Canadian.

      (You're welcome.)

  15. Oh yeah, and Lace settled for the fireman, but it's the bugs that find her most intoxicating.

  16. So...

    Josh is still all up in Amandas face.

    Evan, now totally deluded, is recruiting Carly as a devotee, who is overriding her inner guidance in order to experience paradise in some form, which hopefully doesn’t include E.D.

    The fireman rescues some lady from Lace.

    Ashley I. comes back to drown everyone in her sorrows. Jared clings to Caila like a life preserver, while she gets ready to abandon ship and restore balance to someone’s universe.

    Sarah doesn’t settle, the Looney is sinking, Nick calls dibs on the new hottie (wait until Josh gets wind) the barber is gonna cut Izzy loose, and the twins will always have each other.

  17. I'll be brief.

    Twas Izzy who makes the final cut which kills the Vizzy relations-ship.

    So long Sarah, better luck anywhere but here.

    Josh puts on an unbelievable show to get a date card from reigning quing Janner, which goes to Jared in the end because clearly he is the most smitten and everyone else is just pretending, or being pretended to.

    Ashleys’ melt down is extensive, and the Canadian digs gently to get to the bottom of the mountain of twin ignorance. 6.2 seconds.

  18. I don't understand why Emily can't mention her blog? SGIA has a loyal following and people can read more than one?? I'm not sure if it has to do w making money off ads but it feels a lil mean girl to me? Is there a financial reason I am not aware about? I'm just asking tu understand? As a Texan I feel like we support each other and others with the same passions. That being said, I am not in the industry so I'm probably missing something. I've been reading both and SGIA for a very long time as well as you know who from Texas too. Actually two others who I won't promote until I understand.

  19. My understanding is, I've never seen SGIA made any mention of her blog (he definitely does with Lindsay of IHateGreenBeans) or explicitly/implicitly given her an ok to go ahead and try to direct some of his readership to her site.

    Not to mention it sounds disingenuous as an outsider. That's basically what it is. I understand the intention, but when you do it on every blog regularly without reaching first to the blogger.. it's very hard to give something a second glance.

  20. Some Guy? Where are you??? I miss you.
