The Bachelorette: Icy Hot

Tonight my weekly viewing buddy and I sat down for the newest installment of Ali's worldwide journey for love. This week's destination: Iceland! Below our rants and raves:

- The boys compete for the one-on-one date with Ali by writing a love poem.
- Everyone looks cold. Shivering. Teeth chattering. Rubbing their hands together.
- Cute poem from Craig R.
- While Kasey reads his poem, from the couch, "I hope he falls into the erupting volcano."
- Chris N.'s poem. Um. What?
- Kirk's poem - Root beer eyes? Really?
- In the post-commercial preview, Kirk doesn't want to talk about his dating history. From the couch, "What if he has never had a girlfriend? What if he killed his last girlfriend? Or impregnated her? Bets? Anyone?"
- As Kirk diverts the dating question, from the couch, "Left at the altar? Maybe?" We really want to know!
- Kirk tells Ali he was sick for years from mold and asbestos in his college house. Wow. We were way off.
- On the group date, Chris L.'s horse hates him. Hilarious.
- Justin gets his cast off and instead gets a boot that is exactly the same size. Then he puts his crutches in the trash. Because that is what people do with crutches.
- For the record, this group date in the underground cave = my worst nightmare.
- At the Blue Lagoon, the group date rose is frozen. FROZEN. And they are all in bathingsuits.
- Time for the two-on-one date. Kasey has a Burberry scarf. Hm.
- Ali has to fly again? You would think as the star of the show, she could say, "I have a fear of flying. No planes." In fact, she is flying around the world with these guys! What gives?
- Ice cave! I have always wanted to go to the Ice Hotel! Wearing a fur coat, of course.
- Kasey and Ali have alone time. He's taking off his gloves. He's reaching for his sleeve . . .
- Kasey reveals the tattoo and Ali is speechless. She can't even hide her shock and horror.
- Ali gives the rose to Rated R and Kasey reacts in a surprisingly calm manner. I am waiting for him to fling himself into the mouth of the volcano.
- At the cocktail party, Kirk is wearing his Iceland sweater. Dorky yet cute.
- Craig R. draws a fake tattoo on his wrist to make Ali laugh. Eh. Lame.
- Chris N. How did you make it to Iceland? You're funny? You love Mexican food? Wow, riveting.
- Kirk and Frank commenting on Ali and Chris N.'s body language, "They may do brunch once a year. Just to catch up." Ha!
- I feel like Chris L. and Ali have the same conversation over and over again every time they are alone.
- Ali tells Roberto, "Outside of this, I would never have come up to you. I would have thought you were too hot for me." Um. YEAH.
- Since Ali didn't wear any yellow this week, they put yellow flowers next to the photos of each guy in her "deliberation" room.
- Welp. Chris N. is going home. Probably to make some fajitas.
- We are down to Ty, Kirk, Justin, Frank, Roberto, Chris L. and Craig.
- Next stop: Istanbul, Turkey!
- In the previews: one-on-one dates for Ty and Frank, a wrestling duel for the boys, and someone leaves the show after their true, girlfriend-having colors are revealed. Guesses?
