“The Bachelor” 2013 Season 17 Episode 3 Recap: The Girls are being Ruthless!



Filed under : Celebrity News

Can we already be a third of the way through “The Bachelr” season 17? Why yes we are, and I seems Sean is as shocked as anyone. 

“I had no idea that I would have feelings for girls this early,” he said. 

Lesley got a one-on-one date but she seems to approach it negatively, packing her bag before she goes, in case she gets sent home.  Then she wears a ridiculously short pink lacy minidress which is doing its best to stay in the game. Lesley seems completely not Ok with the date being at the Guinness World Records Museum. 

“I’m thinking, Okay, yeah, um, this could be fun, but if I could have picked any place…” Lesley said, before adding more politely, “I really didn’t think we’d be coming to the Guinness World Records.”

We found out that Sean’s Dad, Jay Lowe, set the world record for driving the 48 contiguous states in the shortest amount of time. And now it’s Sean turn: he and Lesley are going to attempt to break the Guinness world record for longest on-screen kiss. Ohhh, then Lesley was happy! 

“It’s the coolest thing I can imagine,” she says. 

Of course, they break the record of three minutes and sixteen seconds. That makes dinner later a whole lot easier. She admits the one thing she wants in life is a marriage like the one her parents have. She’s scared it may not happen, but Sean says the person she needs to make that dream come true may just be sitting with her. The kiss after that little line was hot! 

The group date was with Kacie, Robyn, Leslie H., Kristy, Catherine, Desiree, Taryn, Amanda, Lindsay, Daniella, Jackie, and Tierra. Bikini football then beach volleyball! In a tightly fought game, Desiree takes her team to victory. Toegther with Kacie, Lindsay, Jackie, Robyn, and Amanda she wins more time with Sean. 

Tierra cruelly duped AshLee andSelmainto thinking they scored the dreaded double date. Nasty, but quite funny. 

Back on the group date, Amanda makes a move on Sean. And what a move it is! 

“When you were kind of describing what you’re looking for in a woman — well, you’re lookin’ at her,” she assured Sean. 

He seems unimpressed with the arrogance, reminding her they hardly know each other. Undaunted, Amanda says that if they get married she’ll bring “such a light, airy, fun atmosphere” to their relationship. She smugly assures the other ladies she is looking forward to getting her rose, prompting Kacie to warn Sean off. I doubted telling all would go any better for Kacie than it ever does for any “Bachelor” whistle- blowers. 

Plus, Kacie seems to make a real mess of this, making vague comments about being stuck “between a rock and a hard place” because of the “different dynamics” between Desiree and Amanda. Of course, as ever, Sean wants nothing to do with backbiting between the girls. So, in trying to prove that she’s not a “drama person” like the other “ladies” in the house, all Kacie does is make Sean associate her with drama. 

“I want you to act like Kacie, not like this crazy person that I’m seeing,” Sean warns her. 

Epic fail, Kacie. 

Next, Tierra falls down the stairs and everyone (including “Bachelor” crew) leaves her lying there until Sean charges in and demands that paramedics are sent for, despite Tierra being adamant she doesn’t want that. 

“I wish you hadn’t have fallen,” says Sean, stroking Tierra’s thigh, “but I’m glad we got this time together, though.” 

The other girls aren’t. Not least AshLee, who has date with Sean delayed. 

Eventually, she gets to set off to Six Flags, which has been shut down for just the two of them… and two chronically ill teen girls, helped by the Starlight Foundation. Sean says carity work is important to him so he wants to see if AshLee digs that too. But it’ not exactly “work” is it? She had to talk to two teenage girls and go on a few rides. However, Sean thinks AshLee is “compassionate”, and on her dinner date with Sean she gets to tell him about her own troubled childhood, adopted at six, having previously been abused in a foster home. 

“If that’s all I walk away with, how lucky am I?” she declared.

Wow! I might even forgive her for spelling her name that way now. Sean wasn’t the only one crying when AshLee told him about her adoptive family taking her home and saying, “We’re going to tell you we love you every day.” Of course, she gets a rose. 

I loved Sean’s surprise for Sarah, bringing her dog Leo to the “Bachelor” mansion at the start of the cocktail party. 

Jackie admitted she hasn’t “been able to connect with Sean on a level that some of the other girls have” but Desiree does her best to hog time with Sean when he was taking with Tierra. This made Tierra mad enough to “[bleeping] punch some walls,” so she struts back out to the couch and “steals” the Bachelor back. Next Lesley snatches Sean away from Tierra, Robyn pulls him away from Catherine, and Lindsay extracts him from Robyn. 

“I mean, girls are being ruthless!” says Sean. 

Oh don’t pretend you don’t love it! But I loved it even more when Kacie apologized to Sean for being crazy earlier, right before AshLee andSelmamuscled in on them again. She tried to say how her words have come out wrong. 

The rose ceremony started in dramatic fashion as Sean asked to speak to Kacie alone. The others were freaking out as he had a rose with him, but poor crazy Kacie didn’t get it. Sean told her, 

“I have way too much respect for you to make you stand through another rose ceremony if I just know in my heart that… we’re better off as friends.” 

She doesn’t want your respect! No, wait; that came out wrong. Meh, whatever, Kacie is out. Roses went to Tierra, Leslie H., Catherine, Daniella, Robyn,Selma, Sarah, Jackie, Amanda and Desiree. Taryn and Kristy were eliminated (with Kacie, of course.)
