Can You Live This Fantasy Life?
This week Aldo Nova was finally proven right…life is just a fantasy. In our case, a fantasy date, three of them to be exact. Our bachelor Brad did not spare the spareribs when it came to picking these sojourns. Let’s start with our first adventure…
Bianka vs. The Iceberg
I don’t know about you but “get up close to an iceberg” is on my bucket list, #234 to be exact. Sadly Bianka did not share the same enthusiasm. One got the feeling she would have liked to be anywhere else on earth than in a kayak paddling out to a massive Titanic scraper. I will give her credit though, she did get out there and do it and I think impressed the boy in doing so.
Brad and Bianka have some good chemistry but you can still feel that she and her trust issues are making a full commitment difficult. Brad feels it too. That being said, clearly progress was made with her accepting the first rose of the night.
Kara The Gunslinger of Love
Shooting clay pigeons and looking good doing it? It’s game, set, match Kara. She can seemingly make any event that much more special just by being there. I love how she dug right in with no fear punishing those clay birds for having the nerve to wear orange before Labour Day.
Where Kara seemed to lose ground was once again, was in the communication department. She seemed to say all the right things, but I never felt there was any weight behind the words. Clearly Brad felt it too since there was no rose for her at the end of the evening. I found her departure telling, nothing close to a tear or any kind of disappointment at losing out on someone she claimed she wanted to settle down with. I don’t think I’m buying that at any price.
Whitney and the Red Lobsters of PEI
Once again, Whitney does not fail to keep it interesting. As usual, she totally handled the day on the lobster boat with ease. I liked seeing her get freaked out when Brad would chase her with them. It showed a much more playful side that had yet to be seen. The competitive Whitney is gone, what is left is someone who is becoming more at ease with herself, but perhaps not so much with her feelings.
What we saw is a young woman starting to realize that her feelings for Brad are real and that this journey could have a long-term outcome. It was interesting to see Whitney grappling with it – going so far as to interrupt the rose ceremony sending Brad into a slight tizzy over her behaviour. I’m liking this more contemplative and inward looking Whitney, she is evolving and so are her feelings for Brad, just in time for a trip to meet his family.
Buckle your seat belts kids, next week we meet the Smiths.
