Tonight Desiree Hartsock’s guys head to Barcelona, Spain for a lot of situational drama.
Drew Kenney, gets the one-on-one tonight at last. Pre-date Drew perseverates on how to tell Desiree about James’ ulterior motives. “If there’s time to address the situation with James, we’ll get to it.”
Oh there is ALWAYS time to “address a situation” Drew!
The two hit the town for some sight-seeing. Drew gets super personal sharing the story of his difficult relationship with his dad. He discloses that his dad is a recovering alcoholic that now has cancer….mega-situation/personal disclosure of the season, but it’s definitely a more appropriate overshare than the Diabetes overshare by Mike G.
Although for the record Type 1 Diabetes is a very serious situation so we do not mean to belittle that, just that it was a little early in the game to bring out such a serious topic.
Des worries that Drew is a little too “reserved,” –we think by “reserved” she means “gay”, but Drew really butches up tonight by proclaiming:
“First things first: I haven’t been able to stop thinking about kissing you.”
Drew goes off-script tearing Desiree away from their sit-down situation taking her to a narrow alleyway for a little privacy (as much privacy as one can muster in front of a camera crew). The cameras scramble to catch the two in a heavy very not-gay make-out session. Drew even cops a few feels.
“Wow, that kiss really made me see Drew in a different light,” …. “It really makes me feel special.” By “different light” we think she means a ‘”straight” light’.
Ok so let’s address the big situation….
Is Drew Kenney gay? He certainly seemed extra gay tonight with his plaid sun umbrella and his uber impressive sense of style. We also knows he has written quite extensively in his blog about Milan Fashion Week. I am just saying it would be really awesome to have the first ever official coming out pre-rose ceremony this season, but I digress.
Drew does get a rose tonight and in a very strategic move delivers the news about James Case to Desiree AFTER said rose allocation. Desiree is pissed and expresses some expletives about the news that James is talking about being the next Bachelor.
Then Zak Waddell gets a one-on-one taking an art class with Dez. A nude male model walks in to pose for the two. Zak, a classic enneagram 3, (‘admire my genitals’ via Sigmund Freud) can not handle the fact that somebody elses’ genitals are being admired so he goes in the back and comes back in a robe and proceeds to disrobe in front of Desiree so that HIS genitals can be admired.
The guys have a serious beef with James Case tonight who apparently claims he is using his experience on The Bachelorette to promote himself. He apparently wants to land in the final four to get The Bachelor gig. Needless-to-say the guys tattle on James and he eventually gets the boot.
Rose Ceremony Eliminations: Kasey Stewart, James Case, and Juan Pablo Galavis.
