Lesley Gets A Record Breaker Kiss From ‘Bachelor’ Sean. Literally!! ‘The Bachelor’ Is On Guinness Book Of World Records This Time
A lot’s cooking up in the recent episode of “The Bachelor” aired this Monday. The most eligible bachelor of town, Sean Lowe resumed his quest for Mrs. Right in the third episode.
“I had no idea that I would have feelings for girls this early,” says Shirted Confessional Sean, while Shirtless Sweaty Sean pumps iron and jogs leisurely on the treadmill. “One week into it, I find myself really digging a lot of women.”
After Harrison drops the date card and runs, Robyn in a confessional explains why she seems kinda drunk. She said, “I want the date card to say, ‘Robyn, let’s ditch these bitches and go fall in love for real.”
But instead it’s Lesley M. and it was a record breaker. Literally! So she packs her “in case I get sent home” bag and dons a ridiculously short pink lacy mini dress. The limo drops them off at Hollywood & Highland where Lesley is somewhat chagrined to learn they’ll be visiting the Guinness World Records Museum. “I’m thinking, Okay, yeah, um, this could be fun, but if I could have picked any place…” Lesley pauses, and then says politely, “I really didn’t think we’d be coming to the Guinness World Records.”
Sean and Lesley were determined to break the ten-year old Guinness World Record for world’s longest on-screen kiss in the privacy of the middle of Hollywood Boulevard while a crowd watches. They are going to attempt to break the Guinness world record for longest on-screen kiss, as dozens of cheering spectators look on! And she loves it. “It’s the coolest thing I can imagine,” says Lesley. “But I think my body is numb.”
Mood Spoiler: Guinness’ enforcer Mr. Stuart Claxton warns them, “Your lips must of course touch throughout the entire attempt,” or else it will “invalidate” the whole “procedure.” OMG! R u kiddin?
After that monumental ice-breaker, Lesley having a conversation with Sean over champagne on a hotel rooftop, admits to being a “nerd” who “studied a lot” in high school, and says the one thing she wants in life is a marriage like the one her parents have. “I’m nervous that it may not come,” she says, to which Sean replies, “You’re going to find the guy that wants to do that. He might be sitting next to you.” Then the Bachelor all but begs Lesley to kiss him. “I’m waiting for you to take back,” and she obliges. “I didn’t think that I would have feelings this fast,” Sean tells Lesley giving her a rose. “But, you know, I do.” Then they make out in a storm of random bombardments.
The names for the group date are called out and everyone left is going except for Selma, AshLee and Sarah. The 12 meet up with Sean on the beach and they play around a bit before getting down to play beach volleyball with the winning team getting extra time with Sean. Of course, the bachelorettes sport bikinis, but Sean’s shirt is The blue team (Kacie, Lindsay, Jackie, Robyn, Desiree, Amanda) take on the red team (Catherine, Tayrn, Leslie H., Kristy, Tierra, Daniella) The level of play is, to be charitable, laughable, as are the voiceovers from the women saying how they “need” time with Sean. Oh! U lucky guy Sean!
The Blue team wins finally! That means Catherine, Taryn, Leslie, Kristy, Tierra, and Daniella the sand-eater have to leave. It’s too much for Kristy to bear. “I just wanted, like, time to have,” she sobs, as her somber-faced teammates/competitors nod in understanding. Eventually they all pile into the Loser Van for a silent, teary ride back to the Casa.
The Bachelor, Sean, takes the winning women back to “his house,” which conveniently has an outdoor couch that will seat all of them. Alas, there’s not enough room for their baggage. Sean nabs some alone time with Lindsay, the 24-year-old substitute teacher who positively gushed at him, “Oh my gosh. I am just, like, so amazed by you!” Sean is digging on her and a makeout session promptly ensues. There’s more kissing, this time with Desiree, and again, more tongue.
There’s some pointed discussion between Amanda and Desiree and Kacie sees this as an opportunity to make both of them look bad to Sean. Unfortunately for her, Sean don’t do drama. And silly girl, she knows this going in. “I don’t think he’ll tolerate drama” she says, and guess what? He doesn’t! “Why are you saying something to me?” She draws a blank. She tries to pull it out, but he keeps shooting her down. Holy backfire! She realizes that this is not going her way. “I want you to act like Kacie, not like this crazy person that I am seeing.
Back at the house, we learn that AshLee gets the last date, but first we have more drama when the universally disliked Tierra falls down the stairs. Paramedics come and check her out, but once Sean is in the house, Tierra says she’s fine and won’t’ go to the hospital. Sean goes to see her out on the patio, while AshLee cools her jets in the kitchen. “I feel like I have been waiting all day. I just have no sympathy anymore. She thinks it’s cute to play the victim,” AshLee fumes.
The pair finally head out on their date. Again, she is dressed to the nine and Sean is wearing a Tshirt and shorts. When it turns out their date is a day with all of Six Flags Magic Mountain to themselves, she’s still smiling. This is where I would take off my shoes and demand a pair of flip-flops from production. But AshLee is a superior grade of human, as we’ll soon find out . . . when Sean announces they’ll be joined on their date by two chronically ill children. Emily and Brianna are best friends who met through a social media site for kids such as themselves, but have never met in person.
The four spend the day at the park, riding roller coasters and playing games. Sean is impressed that AshLee goes out of her way to include the girls in what’s going on and that she is showing her caring, compassionate side. The girls both say it’s their best day ever and that’s before they all take in a private concert by The Eli Young Band. “We all go through things in life. Everybody has something,” AshLee tells the camera. ” It’s a great blessing for me to be a part of these girls lives and to be here with Sean. I’m really lucky.”
The pair are sitting together on a couch and she tells him some things he needs to know about her if they’re going to move on. She was in the foster system until she was six, shuttling between multiple families. In one of those placements, she was physically abused. “But I’m not bitter, I’m not broken. I was never sexually abused (and) if that is all I walk away with, how lucky am I?” she says. “You have one of the most positive, optimistic outlooks of anyone I’ve ever met,” Sean tells her.
“Life is hard. Life brings you trials and it’s your family that holds you together. That’s what I know, that’s all I know,” she says and then tells him about the day she met the man who would become her father, adopting her into his family when she was six. By the end, Sean is wiping away the tears, and money says he’s not alone in that. he’s on a couch!
Sean and AshLee dance and kiss and she gets the rose. “To completely immerse myself into the possibility of loving this man for the rest of my life, it’s scary. I really want this., I never thought I’d believe in this,” she says, wiping away tears.
The ‘obligatory’ cocktail party gets off to a sweet start, when Sean brings Sarah out to the driveway for a surprise. As the limo drives up, she’s understandably nervous. “Are you sending me home?”But instead he’s bringing a little piece of home to Casa Bachelor: It’s her dog Leo! “I feel like such a hot mess,” gushes a teary Sarah. “I’ve never felt so special.” Not feeling so special? Jackie, who admits she hasn’t “been able to connect with Sean on a level that some of the other girls have.” And no one’s going to get to talk to Sean tonight if Tierra has her way. When Desiree interrupts her one-on-one time, Tiny T is mad enough to fu***g punch some walls,” so she struts back out to the couch and “steals” the Bachelor back. This starts a series of beefcake robberies, as Lesley snatches Sean away from Tierra, Robyn pulls him away from Catherine, and Lindsay extracts him from Robyn. “I mean, girls are being ruthless!” says Sean.
Sean pulls Kacie outside and tells her that he has “too much respect” for her to make her “stand through another rose ceremony.” So he sends her home in a mini-van. Kacie B. She wanted closure from Bachelor Ben, and while she was crying in the mini-van she said she she wants to find love, but knows it’s not Sean, dangerously adding “right now.” At least he didn’t get her hopes up?
Tierra and her head injury get a rose, followed by Leslie H., the poker player, Catherine who we haven’t seen much of so far, Daniella, Robyn, Selma, Sarah and her little dog, too, Jackie, who may have just wandered in off the street, and Amanda. The final rose tonight goes to Desiree, because Sean is determined to prank her into submission. That means Kristy the model and Taryn, who feels brokenhearted because she was too guarded and didn’t open up her heart in time and would have loved to be married. Kristy is sad to no longer be a contestant on the path to love, “It would have been a fairytale!”
So do you think next week’s episode could be the ice-breaker? What do you think?
