If you haven’t been watching – you must! “Who Do You Think You Are?”
This is an amazing show. I love it.
This week Lisa Kudrow was featured and I balled. Yes, I balled. It was so moving and a true story of how our lives are more than just who we are today but where we came from.
Last week, Emmit Smith was featured and I discovered we both have relatives from Mecklengburg, VA. The week before, SJP (Go Sex And The City!) was featured and her family was connected to a member of the Rowe family – we too have connections to the Rowe’s!
It reinvigorated my love for genealogy. I know once you start you can’t stop – Ancestry is a wonderful tool (and their right out my front door – literally)!
If you watch only one show a week – this is it!
No, no, no…Jake bugged me last season so I’m avoiding him this year.
I will NOT get sucked in. NOT.
that is, why i was rooting for reid…
he’s a cutie
but he’s NON-COMMITTAL!
classic emily move.
oh, how funny is that.
reid – should of, would of, could of…
I have not been so excited for someone to get booted off since the foot man.
His ride in the limo – it will come back to bite him in the boot-ay!
I’m rooting for Reid but if I’m being honest, I think she’ll pick Kyptin.
On to next week…
Late, I know but I’ve had family in town.
Not a whole lot to say anyway, except, really, Jillian, really? You kept Wes?!
Oh, but on a good note, I did have a Reid look-a-like spotting here in Utah at the Gateway!
The yellow heels, red boots and rockin’ black heels were the highlight of tonight’s show.
And yes, I did fast forward through the foot massage and I nearly hurled.
So let’s go, I’m keeping it short and sweet this week (because I was highly annoyed):
Robby – bummer dude, you are a cuties.
Reid – I’m a fan even with his neuroses.
Jesse – Stop talking so much and just be you.
Tanner – SERIOUSLY!!! Stop it with the feet and put your clothes on. Freak! Thank goodness you are finally GONE!
Kryptin – Yummy.
Michael – Stop trying to stand out so much.
Wes – LOSER. period.*
*(Jillian, stupid, stupid, stupid)
Jake – Something’s off with this kid. Still can’t figure it out but Wes over Jake? Come on.
Lastly, will the old Jillian please come back.
Another thrilling episode. 30 minutes of substance stretched out over 2 hours.
Michael – jumping off a zip line = commitment = love or what, did you really say hooking up?…interesting theory. “Helpless romantic” don’t you mean “hopeless romantic”? Not a good idea to admit Jillian is a rebound, which ever way you spin it. Bad tie – get some help. Humor saved you man.
Jesse – Cool date, you lucked out dude. Good line to tell a girl you’ll remember her forever. Classic. Past relationship discussion – ouch. After 6 months, he’s no longer selfish. Quick learner. He had shifty eyes the whole time. I’m not sold on him.
Tanner – Annoying, manipulative, jealous boy. I can’t even look at him. One word: Feet! I have NO idea how she can keep him around. SERIOUSLY!
Reid – The most real (in my opinion). Plus he’s adorable.
Wes – Mr. Musician. I can’t figure you out. I think you’re shady but so smooth.
Robby – Not sure how he’d support a family as a bartender, but who am I to judge.
Mark – I’m not impressed. Clearly, Jillian wasn’t either.
Kiptyn – You’re cuteness is blinding but won’t last forever.
Ed – Job vs. Love. Or rather TV vs. Love. Good call on going home – responsible. Admirable quality.
Jake – Perfect = Kiss of Death. But you pulled it out.
The Woman of the Hour (or 2 Hours):
Jillian, girl, stop screeching all the time – the cuteness wears off quickly, say thank you when you get a compliment do not say “really?” like you don’t know you’re pretty-attractive-smell good-on and on, I don’t recommend ice bar dancing – never flattering, don’t cry like a spoiled teenager or lay on the guilt trip when a guy is being responsible, or don’t ask a guy to feel your wet butt.
Line of the night: “Being on top of a glacier is prime real estate for falling in love.”
Wow, that must be where all of the single girls in the world are going wrong…we’re not on a glacier.
I’ve missed the first few episodes of the Bachelorette so I was having a hard time getting “into” this season.
Jillian isn’t really impressing me right now. She’s not as cute and fun as she was before. Role reversal may do that to you…who am I to judge.
I have to admit some of the guys bug the crud out of me – Mike, especially! He thinks he is McDreamy with a bad nose. He’s aggressive, rude, and full of himself. Yuck.
I was so excited she gave the rose to Mark. Yippie.
The break dance instructor – really? Is that what you do for a living. I want to see some moves besides you groping Jillian the whole show.
Oh to have boys with drama, really that’s the best. We’re always the “drama queens” but this was priceless…girlfriends at home and Wes…guys are dumb sometimes. We’re dumb sometimes too but for pete’s sake…this was classic.
However, Jillian, do you really think all the guys are there for the “right” reason? You are on reality TV.
And so far I’m crushing on Reid and Jake – send them my way.
Oh and I love the UGGs.
i didn’t think i could become anymore of a sap than i already am…
i hate to admit this but i have a secret crush on the new show “gLee” on fox.
how can this happen?
how could i fall for the cheese of a new show?
how could I be sucked in by cUt3 kids singing and dancing?
we’ll see how long this new obsession lasts.
bad sign when i’ve started singing “don’t stop believing”…
…Anatomy has been really well done the last three weeks.
Tonight there were some great moments…great quotes.
Doesn’t matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up, but, maybe that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap, maybe going through all of that keeps us moving forward. It’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up before we can step up.
- Alex Karev while laying with Izzie Stevens -
If there’s a crisis you don’t freeze, you move forward. You get the rest of us to move forward because you’ve seen worse, you’ve survived worse and you knew, we’ll survive too. You say you’re all dark and twisty, it’s not a flaw, it’s a strength. It makes you who you are.
