The Bachelor Episode 3 is now in the books. We all spent another 2 hours Monday night enjoying this delectable detour in our lives that serves up little substance but lots of sugary treats to begin our week. Jade went in for the kill (take a look above!), our Kim-K look-a-like got the hot tub snub, and Jimmy Kimmel had questions about just one thing.
In case you’re not caught up (for shame!), before we delve into episode 3 details, you can see all the Bachelorettes that started the show on our episode 1 Bachelor recap page. There we mark a little “X” as girls get knocked off the show. And, here is our Epidsode 2 Bachelor breakdown.
Which brings us to this week’s Episode 3 recap: 10 Observations That You Simply Can’t Do Without. Ok, maybe you can do without them, but why bother? People endlessly search for useless information and are constantly looking for things to do when they’re bored. So, there’s no better time than now to feed the mind with delightful drivel–let’s get it on!
10 Absolutely Meaningless Take-a-Ways from Episode 3 of the Bachelor with Chris Soules
I think Jimmy Kimmel’s great and provided an added boost to Episode 3 of The Bachelor. But, I have this question: Did he say two sentences without one of them being about sex?
As I wrote in my episode 1 review, Ashley I has big shoes to live up to being a self-proclaimed Kim K look-a-like. Unfortunately, it’s not the shoes she lacks…it’s the other assets. Do you think Kim has ever been turned away when entering a hottub?
What is going on with Jillian…they keep “blacking out” the bottom part of her bikini. Either it’s too risque for prime time TV (which is kind of hard to believe) or that treasure trail extends well beyond the confines of the bikini. I want the unedited version!!!
Agreed. Men get turned on by almost anything. Especially Jimmy Kimmel (refer to #1).
Seriously? I know it was nighttime and they probably tried to be discrete but…seriously? Nobody at that wedding recognized them or the zillion cameras filming them?
Got to give props to Kaitlyn for saying that she would be understanding when, months down the line, she discovers that Chris slept with other women in the fantasy suite. Then, she brought up the idea that women can do that too and both Chris and Jimmy were like Uhhhh…Nope…doesn’t work that way.
Also big-ups to Becca who took a clever, pleasure-denying, traditional, reverse psychology approach to the whole kiss thing. While clearly a full on make-out session just before the rose ceremony gets you a rose (especially Jade–you sexy voracious bed jumping vixen), apparently a non-kiss works too. Keep ‘em guessing…worked for one show but we’ll see how long that lasts.
Crazy Ashley S is still there! Even Chris Harrison can’t figure this one out.
There is a girl Nikki (see her bachelorette photo this page) who is still there. Who is she, you ask? She’s the girl who we have hardly seen or heard from at all. But…she’s a hot cheerleader. Nuff said!
I don’t know how Chris is doing it. He’s full on hittin’ it with all of these girls and yet still comes across as a wholesome, quality gentlemen.

The Women Kicked Off Episode 3 of the Bachelor
Finally, let’s take one final look at the 3 girls who didn’t make the cut: Amber, Tracy, & Trina. Goodbye Ladies and good luck!
As I said in the beginning, I liked Amber from the start probably because she’s a bartender in Chicago and I have special memories of a particular bartender in Chicago Plus, she’s has that amazing (tip jar!) cream-colored mocha skin. Alas, on her departure, she was a bit self-pitying–so un-Chicago like. Head high Amber–love will find you!
Tracy is a hottie and I’m not sure I would have let her go. Although, like I mentioned in the beginning, she said: “I’d like to be a romantic but I haven’t found a guy who’d be into that!” Something’s weird there. If she would have been the aggressor and hit the bed like Jade, I guarantee she’d still be there…but, hittin’ the bed would be romantic…and she’s never done that.
Mom always said, “If you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all.” Good advice, Mom.
