First, I have to say I love Emily. Being a single mom, I think she is portraying herself in a very dignified manner. She isn't embarrassing herself or her daughter and deserves nothing but respect from the guys. There are some guys I like and some I do not. She seems to be a good judge of character and not letting them play her. Although, I am not sure why Kalon is still there.
I think he is there for the wrong reasons, but I also think he is very smart. If we have learned anything from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, it's that the hated one in the house rarely goes. I think from his helicopter entrance, he made sure he was that guy! If he wants to act one way to ensure his stay that is one thing, but I don't think it is all acting for that purpose. When he told her Monday night "to let him finish", I would have told him to finish his conversation with himself in the limo ride outta there. All the fancy suits don't make a gentleman and if he is going to talk to her that way now, he will definitely do it again.
I was just entertained at the way she let Alessandro go. I can't believe he never understood that saying Emily and her daughter would be a compromise was so wrong. By saying that he meant it would be some sort of sacrifice on his part. You can't compromise without giving something up. I think he actually thought he was making good sense, but she left him rambling to himself!
I was impressed with the way she handled Tony. I don't think he was that into her or he would have been more upset leaving. It is nice to see a guy putting his child on top of his priority list.
The guy who isn't getting enough attention is Charlie. He seems so sincere and genuine. I am not sure he is edgy enough, though. Although she hasn't talked to them much, she has kept Columbian Alejandro and Michael with the long hair. I think she likes some of the guys that seem mysterious. However, on the group date when Michael was swinging with the kids he had a creepy look for just a second. Maybe I have watched too many Criminal Minds. I like Sean, but there is something bugging me about him. You can tell she really likes Chris, but he seems a little too anxious and competitive. Same thing with Ryan. He is from Georgia so I should be pulling for him, but something about him seems a little fake. She seems to like Jef with one "f". I like Doug and they definitely have a lot in common. I am just not sure she is wanting to blend a family as much as add to hers. He is there for the right reasons, though.
Arie, Arie, Arie. I could just say his name over and over! He is my pick......for now. She was definitely smitten when he got out of the limo the first night. Monday night, she was almost shy and couldn't look right at him some of the time. It is kind of ironic that he is a race car driver, but I think that may actually be a positive thing. She may find some healing and closure with the passing of Ricki's dad. All I know is I have two friends who live in Scottsdale and if she sends him home I am going for a visit!
