Bachelorette Boy Jef (with one F)
Well what do you know, Jef with one "f" is really growing on me. I loved his hometown date with Emily on last nights episode of the Bachelorette. He took her to his families ranch in St. George, Utah and their date was awesome. I'm not just saying this because he's the Utah guy and I'm from Utah. I really like this guy. He's getting better every week.
He had a great date planned. He took her for a ride in a Razor (a four wheeler with seats that goes really fast!), which looked like tons of fun. Next they shot at clay pigeons. They were both excellent shots and Emily seemed very impressed with Jef's shooting skills. I loved when she said something along the lines of, "Look at you shooting guns all manly in your skinny jeans." The date was perfect and he was really showing her a new side of him. I liked it a lot and honestly I would have had such a good time on a date like that.
Then of course she had to meet like four of his 500 siblings. They all seemed nice enough. I don't know if it's just my trained Utah eye or what, but the siblings were TURBO mormon. Dave even noticed that they had the mormon look and accent. I'm not saying that this is a positive or a negative, I'm just saying it's strangely obvious and I wonder if people outside of this state see it? I even got the inside scoop from my cousin that Jef's folks are on a morman mission and Jef went on one as well. I guess he isn't into it anymore, but I hope Emily is aware of all this. If she ends up with him, it will make her integration into his family a bit tougher than she might think.
All that being said though, I think that their relationship is really progressing. He read her the SWEETEST letter that he wrote to her on his plane ride home from Prague (the last date city). I think he's very different from the other guys. He's very likable and he seems like a lot of fun to be around. I don't know if she wants to get it on with him, but if she does, they might have a great time as a couple. Plus, I would love it if bachelorette Emily chose Jef and moved to Salt Lake. I would love to go shopping downtown and run into her at the MAC counter or something.
The other two guys are great as well. Shawn's family seemed great. His dad was awesome. He'd make a great father-in-law. I think Emily felt very comfortable with them. Ari's parents seemed sort of weird. Almost like they are off in outer space. I got super annoyed when Ari's mom just started speaking Dutch in front of Emily. It was beyond rude. Who does that? I'm just so excited for next weeks episode! I love the fantasy dates every season. I am counting the seconds until next Monday night.
