The Bachelor

Last night, the final six were off to Sun Valley, Idaho. Shayne is so excited she takes a header down the stairs. Once they arrive, Matt decides to "slam dunk" all the girls into the snow, but Marshana makes a run for it because she "looks fabulous in her outfit and doesn't want to get covered in snow right away!" I love her.

Once they settle into their digs, ding-dong! – The dates box arrives for Chelsea's one-on-one date for a "private winter wonderland" and off they go on their sleigh ride. Matt needs to find out if there is romance and wants some affection from Chelsea. And, despite her hand-holding phobia, she invites herself back to Matt's place to face her fear, and who knows what else behind closed doors.

Next is the group date. Matt loses some points right away with his snow virgin comment. The meeper does well for her first time on the snow, but Marshana, she will be bruised all over in the morning. Next, Shayne, or as Matt calls her, "my little snow monkey" blows him away. I have to admit it, I am starting to go for Shayne. She brought her make-up bag snowboarding and  I wasn't even annoyed at her – and clearly neither was Matt. Robin then interrupts Shayne's time with Matt. I could not have said it better than Shayne did….Are  you kidding me?

Noelle gets the second one-on-one date. Ummm, who is Noelle? Has she been on the show this whole time?  Matt states his objective for this date is to "get to know Noelle." Clearly he hasn't noticed her either. They hit the ice, and surprise, welcome to the show Noelle!

Back at the house, Chelsea and Robin get into it with Marshana in what Chris Harrison keeps referring to as "the most shocking confrontation in Bachelor history." Sorry Chris, it wasn't all you made it out to be. What was in fact shocking, was that before the rose ceremony, Matt's face was not red for the very first time! That was a shocker!

Shayne gets the first rose. No shock there – Matt wants to meet him some Lorenzo Lamas. After Noelle and Chelsea each get their rose, Meeper takes the fourth sending Marshana and Robin home. Of course I was super bummed to see my girl go, but it wasn't a surprise, and I agree Marshana, you are still Fabulous and Amazing! 

And Finally, Bon Soir Robin!
