Ok…yesterday, I opened the blog up for questions about last night’s episode or the Bachelor in general…and as always, you had more than a few. Here are some of them with my answers…I can’t answer any questions that in any way shed light on the outcome of the show, so if your question did, I’m sorry but I won’t be able to answer those questions. If I didn’t get to yours, hopefully, I will before next week. Stay tuned…
6. Did Sean get to ask the girls about their faith?
Yes. Sean was able to talk to them about anything and everything. They obviously can’t show every single second of each week in a two hour show, so you may or may not see him ask everyone, but yes, faith was discussed.
7. Were we concerned about Sean being the Bachelor because of our faith and perhaps the reputation of Bachelor’s from the past?
Absolutely not. We were so proud of the way Sean handled himself in Emily’s season and not for one second did we think he would disappoint us. Even going into Emily’s season, we had no reservations. Sean is as true as he portrays himself. We had no fears or doubts.
8. How did Sean modify his diet while filming the show?
From what he tells me, he ate what was convenient. Sean usually has a really healthy diet (with the occasional whoopie pie thrown in) but while filming the show, he ate what he could, when he could. He was really busy the entire time.
9. Who was my favorite girl on last night’s episode?
I loved Sarah! If a guy brought me to the top of a skyscraper and said I had to jump off, I’d probably have thrown up everywhere. She was a real trooper! And she was sweet and beautiful.
10. Where do we all watch each episode?
Mom and Dad live about 50 minutes away from me, so they watch it at their house and we watch it at our house…and then we discuss when the show is over. For the first 2 episodes, Sean has been in LA or NYC, but when he returns home, he’ll just watch it with his close friends. Last season, he watched one episode with me and he said he would do the same this season. Having two small kiddos who need to be in bed for school the next morning, we’ve decided just to stay home and watch.
11. Will I let my kids watch Sean make out with girls on TV?
Yes. I’m not worried about the show being too inappropriate because Sean is the lead…and I know him. Last night’s show was really educational for my kids, we were able to discuss people with certain handicaps (Sarah), and we were able to discuss how God made people with a variety of skin colors…and that we’re to love everyone no matter how God made them. Because God only makes beautiful people. They also understand that Uncle Sean is on a show to find someone to marry…and truth be told, you sometimes have to kiss several people before you find the one you want to marry.
12. Do the girls have stylist on the show to do their hair and makeup?
Nope. They do it themselves (or help each other do it). Clothes, makeup and hair is all on their own.
13. How does Sean remember the girl’s names at the Rose Ceremonies?
Obviously, the first night was hard because he just met 26 people for the first time…thankfully, there are producers that can remind him of names. After that, he really got to know the girls on dates (and there were less girls), so he just knew all of their names.
14. Am I not a fan of Tierra because I tweeted that Kensington said “no Seanie! Get rid of her!”?
Right now, I have two types of knowledge. I know what I know because the show is wrapped and I’ve had almost 2 months to learn a lot about what’s going to unfold. And now, I’m also getting to know the specific details as I watch the show live with you guys. That being said, I have some opinions about Tierra but most of them come from the “coming up on this season” clips that they show at the end of each episode. As for Kensington’s comment…it was just funny that she was so quiet about all of the other girls but then really got mad at her uncle for not tossing Tierra out. She formed her own little opinion quite quick!
15. Was I able to talk to Sean during this process?
Contact with Sean was limited because he was focused and busy. Plus, Andrew and I were out of the country two weeks of his filming on our own vacation. I spoke with him a few times but honestly, he was a super busy guy.
Ok! Enough for one post! Some of you asked me really sweet questions and I know you have the best of intentions but if I answer them, they will give away too much about this upcoming season. I kept all of the questions and there will be a time and a place for me to answer them…just not now.
One last thing…don’t forget to go check out Sheaffer’s blog tomorrow to see her recreate one look from last night’s episode on her blog Pinterest Told Me To. She’ll be taking one look from a contestant and recreating it out of her own wardrobe. Love it!
