I know y'all were enthralled with the debate last night, but am I the only one who watched? I was pleasantly surprised, and I think it's going to be a good season.
Brad the Bachelor is by no means good looking IMO, but he does seem to have an attractive personality and be a fun guy. Tyler the host - a jolt when you first see him and it's not Chris - is an experienced host who ended up doing a good job I thought. Only issue is that while the girls referred to Brad as "tall dark and handsome," Tyler must be a giant because Brad looks quite small next to him.
The girls were a great mix I thought - the slutty, the schemey, the ones who just want to be on tv, the ones who seem to really (!) be there for love, and someone who appears to be our own Canadian Courtney (the Kristan Wiig lookalike who got the first rose). Pretty sure Gabrielle is a producer's pick, but at the same time, they didn't hesitate to get rid of a few who looked like they were cast for good tv but in the end just didn't click in (Bubba, chick on the motorcycle).
I guess for those paying attention to the extended "coming up" the whole thing must be pretty much spoiled, but it still looks like fun. It's not a US budget, but they didn't skimp either - the mansion is quite nice, they go to Paris as well as Vegas and NO (with the rest pretty much in Canada, but maybe they wanted to do that to be extra Canadian, and potentially meet their grant and tax credit requirements).
