Storming the castles on 'The Bachelorette'

Last night's episode of "The Bachelorette" brought Ali and the five remaining guys to Lisbon, Portugal.  There would be four dates this week, with no roses on the line in any of them.

The first solo date went to Roberto, who's asked by Ali to be the "king of her castle".  Are they heading to Medieval Times for dinner and a tournament?

Nope.  Instead, the two start posing for wacky photos, with Ali trying to impersonate every Toyota commercial from 1984.  Ali and Roberto then dance in the street to music added in post-production.  Mick Jagger and David Bowie they're not.

The two then go to the top of a castle, where Ali says there's "no doubt" that she can fall in love with Roberto.

Frank and Ty are next up for the two-on-one date, and they board a helicopter with Ali, who was afraid of flying when the show started.  The three head to another castle, where they watch the deer but no antelope play.  Inside, Ali requests that the booze start flowing immediately, if not sooner.

Ali then spends time alone with the two suitors.  Ty says he finds it appealing that Ali has a plan, while Frank demands that Ali comes to his house, which technically is his parents' home.  Ali doesn't seem to mind that Frank has to share a bathroom with his father, and the two hug.

Kirk, who is "ecstatic" about being on a date with Ali because he likes her, heads with our heroine to, you guessed it, a castle.  Kirk talks about not bringing a girl home to see his parents in three years, while Ali apologizes for a being a bit of a burden during the day.  In the end, Ali says the "emotional connection" she has with Kirk is special to her, while Kirk says the two of them have grown closer.

Chris the landscaper gets the final date of the show, and he and Ali go to a winery that resembles a castle.  Chris, whose dad likes red wine, says he likes how his relationship with Ali is progressing, and presents Ali with a bracelet, which thankfully fits her wrist.  Ali expresses joy that Chris waited until he was comfortable with her to present her with the gift.

At the rose ceremony, which looked to be held in a castle, Ali gave the boot to Ty, saying she just didn't see a relationship with him working in the long run.

Next week, it's the hometown dates.

What did you think of last night's "Bachelorette" episode?

    Why do they give the show away...or some of it anyway. Example: Remember Weatherman at the rose ceremony where it was down to him and one other? The segments got mixed up, and when they were panning on the guys not yet chosen, he had the rose on his lapel (so obviously taken AFTER she gave him a rose, not before). I actually had to watch this again to see the goof. Also, looks like Frank and Ali have a bit of a burts, but last week they showed a preview of Frank taking her to his home, even before she decided this week who was going...why spoil it? Well, I use 'spoil' losely, because, quite frankly (no pun intended), none of the remaining guys will stay with her 'til the "I Do" part at the later. Phony stuff....Nonetheless, she should be thanking her lucky stars she did NOT end up with the Jakester from last season...what a loser!

    Jake is a danger. He is a psychopath. He has no regard for anyone else. He manipulates others for his own benfit and he has no compassion or caring toward anyone or anything but himself. Vienna needs to run away as fast as she can and not look back.

    • let's be real

      I'm not quite sure anyone who shows up on that show is really "genuine" and "innocent." There may be one out of the many, but usually it appears that person doesn't win. Ryan and Trista were the exception (the proof of the "genuine" part is in the fact that they're still together, from what I last recall).

    All I can say is if anyone thought that Jake was a genuine person, then WOW!! ...He is the most phony, self absorbed, annoying man I have ever seen on TV or anywhere in a public forum...I could barely watch DWTS because of his phony smile and overtly conceited ways...For someone to be more phony than Pamela Anderson, is saying a lot...he makes Pamela's parts look 100% genuine...even his phony cry thanking his fans, the voters just made me want to throw up in my mouth alittle!

    I believe that even though they both have to grow, I believe that Vienna truly put forth efforts to communicate respectfully in the relationship, and that blatently Jake has a lot of growing up to do. It seems that he wants to be in the limelight, to be ontrolling and his immaturity is not coomplementing him.

      "Starting" to look staged, this show has been staged from the outset, did you even see the guy in the plaster cast changing legs as he walked along?

      Chris Harrison perhaps epitomises just how disgusting this show is – the only real moment I have ever seen on the Bachelor series was when a former contestant accused him of hitting on the wife of a co-worker – priceless, and obviously true judging by his reaction.
