After the ladies arrived at their lavish Hilton Hotel suite, the group date card arrived. It is during this time that Nikki The Nurse expressed how she is tired of being in a group date setting. She does not want to share Juan Pablo, umm no one does Nikki, and she wants to not be on that group date. To Nikki's disadvantage her name is on the group date card, and all it reads is "POP!" It is then that Nikki The Nurse says 'POP' is the sound her head is going to make when it explodes on this group date. Listen here Nikki The Nurse. You could get no date at all so quit the complaining.
Six girls are then whisked away in a limo and taken to a dance studio where they take a dance class with Korea's biggest K- Pop group 21. Now, no one has ever heard of these girls before and I am sure that it was cool for the sorority sisters to meeting the biggest pop group in Korea, but they were acting like they met the Spice Girls. No. You met girls who barely speak English and dance. Its not the same.
During the dance class, we watched some girls that truly think they are god's gift to the world of dance. And by girls I mean Kat. The girl was acting like she had to dance in order to save her life. I would have tripped her. I know someone who would trip her too, and her name is Nikki. The Nikki Negativity Tour continues when she sees the other girls out dancing her and she becomes uncomfortable. 21 came back into the studio and told the girls that they will be preforming on stage with them during a concert as their backup dancers. Everyone acted like it was sorority bid day all over again, well, everyone besides Nikki. Upon hearing that she has to actually preform in front of people Nikki says, "I just hope we are preforming for the South Korean school of the blind." Real nice Nikki The Nurse. Real nice.
The girls dressed up in 80s clothes, that were probably pulled from an old Tiffany tour, and they walked into the mall with thousands of screaming fans. The mall was five stories high and people filled each floor. In America none of that would fly, but in South Korea its just another day. 21 came out, the girls danced, Nikki stayed pissed, Kat looked absolutely ridiculous and thought that her great dancing would lead to a rose, and Juan Pabs wore tight red pants. It was quite a site.
After the concert, the group date got more serious as the ladies began to spend more one-on one-time with Juan Pabs. As Kat spent time with Juan Pablo to tell him the tale of her tarnished childhood, Nikki The Nurse held court just a few feet away as she began the Kat bashing session. "No one is ever that on!" Nikki said talking about how positive and happy Kat is all the time. The girl who no one knows, Danielle, just sat there uncomfortably. The ex-NBA dancer was looking for the first out she possibly had, and everyone else just let Nikki tear into Kat.
The shit talking did not stop Nikki from having one on one time with Juan Pablo. Her performance switched as soon as he was around, shocking, and the two had a nice talk mostly about Camilla. Juan Pabs ate that right up and gave Nikki the rose for the second week in a row. Two group date roses back to back, Nikki The Nurse is doing something right.
The one-on-one date went to Sharleen this week, and to no ones surprise she was as dry as ever. I will never understand these two. Does she realize who she is dating? Juan Pablo is the most energetic, free spirited, fun loving bachelor the show has ever seen. If Sharleen was asked what she likes to do for fun, she would probably say watching paint dry. She's just that type of person.
During the beginning of their date they walked around Seoul and the two of them tried on Handbocks, ate weird food, and then ended up in a traditional korean tea house. It was here where the best Juan Pablo lines come in. Sharleen is explaining to him how he is not a bland person. As if he were a innocent five year old child Juan Pabs then says, "What is bland?" It's adorable that he still does not know American sayings and words. Sharleen of course explained what that meant to him and he told her that she was not bland either. Seriously Juan? You must also not know what a dictionary is because next to the word bland is a picture of Sharleen.
Before their dinner Juan Pablo asked Sharleen to sing for him and you would think he was asking her to rip off her dress and run around naked. She said she would only do it if he closed his eyes. Juan always gets what he wants. He closed his eyes and Sharleen belted out a few notes. She's good, but she's no Phantom of The Opera soundtrack. During dinner they talked more about Sharleens life in Germany and then Juan Pabs asked the million dollar question. How many kids do you want? We all know he wants a soccer team, and Sharleen wouldn't know how to show affection to a cactus let alone her own child. She debated lying to him which is disgusting, but gave him a weird answer about how she never thought about kids. Juan appreciated that she was honest and gave her a rose! Sharleen then felt the need to tell the audience, "After much research I can now say that Juan Pablo is a great kisser." Thanks Sharleen, we all needed to know that. Weirdo.
Another group date means another setting for passive aggressive actions to take place!! The women start off their date with El Bachelor by going to a karaoke bar that is set in what looked like a doll house. The women had no idea what any of the words meant, yet they continue to jump up and down and acted like 'woo' girls. After they sang their hearts out they continue roaming the streets of Seoul, had paddle boat races, and got fish pedicures.
As the tiny fish ate away at the women's dead skin on the bottoms of their feet during the pedicure, Clare begins to get a little territorial with the man who is obviously her future husband. Ladies this is obviously Clare's man and everyone else needs to get to steppin, or so Clare thinks. Clare always found her way next to Juan Pabs which some of the other girls took into account. Like Andi and Kelly, but more on them later.
After the pedicures, they women and El Bachelor were back on the streets of Seoul where Clare put her arms around Juan and told him how she does not want to eat octopus. So what ends up happening? Juan Pablo finds her an octopus to eat. Clare of course had to be dramatic about eating the sea creature. Juan and all the other girls of course got her to eat it and Clare was not happy. Kelly spoke for all of us when she said, "Oh come on I know you have swallowed bigger things then that!"
The girls dressed up and were taken back to the hotel for a little one-on-one time. House mom Renee was the first one up. Poor girl just wants to kiss Juan Pabs, but he made it clear to her that he does not want to go around kissing everyone. He wants to set a good example for his daughter. I'm glad Camilla can walk around and proudly say that her dad is not a man whore. I mean, he already pimped himself out to be on this show, so kissing people shouldn't be an issue. But the man wants to set an example. Renee gets no kiss.
Andi and Juan Pablo just click. The two joked together and said things like, "Aye yai yai!" We see it them together, they see it, they are perfect. Case closed. That girl needs to just win the whole damn thing already.
Leave it to Clare to stir the pot and get the girls rilled up to kiss Juan Pablo. At this point he has kissed six girls, and since she was the first girl Juan kissed, Clare feels as though she is able to hold something over the girls. The only thing this woman is holding is all of the crazy inside of her. She already leaked out quite a bit, and the rest I am sure will be coming out like the great flood soon enough. The women asked Clare if she is going to try and kiss Juan and her response was, "Try to?" Which is equivalent to "Why do you ask stupid questions?" After the talk with Clare, Lauren felt so determined to kiss Juan that she came right out and told him she wanted one. It was awkward when he had to explain to her that she was not getting one because of his new rule. Ladies that is why you always wait for the man to kiss you first.
Crazy Clare was the only one who was able to break Juan Pablo's rule. Seriously what is up with this guy and letting all of the dry and crazy girls control him? He just couldn't help but kiss Clare apparently. Even after she told him that she threw up in her mouth a little bit after she ate the octopus. Oh but don't worry she totally swallowed it! Juan told her how her teeth and lips are "sexy" and it was a little unsettling to watch. Juan kissed her and I was hoping that the great flood of crazy would have started a little early.
During Clare and Juan's time together, Andi and Kelly began to reenact how Clare acted on the group date that day. Andi supplied us with a less then stellar, but hysterical, impression of Juan Pablo while Kelly acted as Clare. The two reenacted how Clare kept putting his arms around Juan and how Juan spoke to her in broken English. Also when Juan gave Clare the octopus, Kelly responded in a Clare voice saying, "That is the most I've eaten in two weeks!! Are you so proud of me?" Usually the women doing this comes off as mean, but it wasn't. It was down right hysterical.
Clare was certain that she would be receiving the rose on this date, but it went to my girl Andi!! That is right Clare, your man notices someone else! What are you going to do about that?
A wonderful week in Seoul ended with a cocktail party and rose ceremony. Before the rose ceremony, Juan spent some more one-on-one time with the women, and the women who received roses decided to back off and let the women who didn't have roses spend time with Juan. Are they aware what show they are on? Are these women playing fair? Oh...its only Andi and Sharleen playing fair and not Nikki The Nurse? Okay, that makes this a little better.
Nikki was in no mood to be respectful of people who did not have a rose, so she stumbled her way over to Clare and Juan Pablo, drink in hand, and sat and watched them talk. Clare was again not having any of this and was angry that she was interrupted by the nurse, but gracefully bowed out. Nikki and Juan then had a conversation about how women don't look right at men when they are talking...duh...its scientifically proven. Or thats what Nikki thinks. Juan Pabs made the mistake of letting it slip that there may be some issues in the house, and Nikki automatically takes that as Clare was talking badly about her. Its not true, but leave it to precious Juan Pab to get confused and ignite a fire.
Later, Nikki and Kelly are sitting together and Nikki tells Kelly that she thinks Clare was talking shit about her to Juan Pablo. Clare, who is obviously in an ear shot, comes right over and sits next to Kelly. Kelly, being the comic relief she always is, says that, "its really awkward to be sitting in-between you guys right now." Kelly then tells Clare what Nikki heard from Juan and Clare makes it clear she was not talking about her. It was equivalent to watching sixth grade girls hash out their problems at the lunch table. "Why would I waste time with him talking about other girls?" Seriously Nikki, we all know Clare is trying to get pregnant by Juan Pablo and stage a pregnancy scare by the time it gets to the final two girls. The girl has a plan and she is not wasting time. Crazy Clare does tell the nurse how she is, "One way with the girls and another way with Juan." HELLO?! Is no one aware of what show they are on?? The two continue to hash it out with passive aggressive sayings, and then it was time for the rose ceremony.
Elise and Lauren were the two who were sent back to the United States. It was no surprise, but they did get more air time then the curly haired girl named Danielle. Seriously how is she still there? Also, where the hell is Molly? The dog doesn't get to go internationally? That is just not right. Maybe Chris Harrison took the dog. Or the dog is back at the mansion enjoying some peace and quiet and her own pool time.
Next week the journey continues to Vietnam, which is clearly the new romantic destination. Well, to the producers it is.
