It’d be one thing if the man described in the headline above was, say, Michael Phelps or some other Olympic swimmer. Those guys need to be as aerodynamic as possible. But no, that’s not who Chris was talking about, as all of my fellow rose lovers know from tonight’s episode. (SPOILER ALERT if you have not yet watched!) The hairy bastard in question is, of course, Ryan, who continues to skeeve out the other guys this week with his three-hour grooming routine (his facial hair is looking very George Michael circa “I Want Your Sex,” don’t you think?) and the sickly sweet BS he spews whenever Emily is around. Tonight’s trip to Croatia certainly brings about a few surprises (who knew Sean was strong enough to break a log? day-um!) and at least one very welcome dismissal. Stay tuned for my full recap later tonight (UPDATE: Click for Kristen’s full Bachelorette episode 6 recap and Chris Harrison’s Bachelorette blog), but in the meantime let me know what you thought about the Highland Games and all of the other shenanigans this evening. What did you think of the rose ceremony fake-out? Are you excited to see how the show handles Producer-gate next week? And why would anyone shave negative space into his beard? Start the conversation below!
