Monday marks Memorial Day here in America, but Emily Maynard's search for a husband isn't taking the day off.
This week, Emily will take some of her suitors to the park, where one of her friends, there to "grill' the guys on their marriageable qualities, takes a particular liking to Sean and his rock-hard abs. For her one-on-ones this week, Emily accompanies Chris on the season's first Fear Date, scaling a building, and then take Arie to one of her favorite places in the world, Dollywood. Then, at the weekly pre-rose ceremony cocktail party, two guys rub Emily the wrong way: Alessandro for his insistence that marrying a woman with a kid is a "compromise," and Kalon when he condescendingly cuts her off as she's speaking. Don't they know who's handing out the roses around here?Check out this glorious plethora of sneak preview clips from Monday night's episode, which moves back to its regular time (8 to 10pm) and its regular drama (Who's not here for the right reasons?!) all at once:
Episode Promo: "Surprise After Surprise"
Clip 1: Sean Goes Shirtless and Gets a Seal of Approval.
Emily's friend Wendy has an escalating, increasingly inappropriate crush on Sean. But can you really blame her?Clip 2: I Could Die. Seriously. I Could Just Die. Die. I COULD DIE!
Seems like maybe Emily should just ditch this whole thing and marry Dolly Parton instead.
Clip 3: Don't Look Down. And Don't Cry Like Baby. Chris and Emily's time together is less of a "date" and more of a "dare."
Clip 4: "Compromise" THIS. This appears to be the first time we've heard Alessandro, the Brazilian grain merchant, speak. And it will probably be his last.
Clip 5: Kondescending Kalon.
The "luxury brand consultant" (trust fund a-hole) continues on his one-man mission to prove that money really doesn't buy class.What do you think: Will Kalon survive the rose ceremony after revealing that nasty attitude? How do you think Arie and Chris (and Sean!) will do on their dates?
My predictions: Chris, Arie and Sean are golden. Alessandro is outta-ssandro. And Kalon will get the coveted "the producers are forcing me to give you this rose"
rose. At least for another week.Check out photos from the episode while you wait for Monday:(Image courtesy of ABC; clips courtesy of Zap2It)
