But first... Helloooo Osher! Someone has finally been gifted a better stylist to show off those guns. Well played Channel 10, well played indeed.
EPISODE 1: MEET & GREET (WITH A POSSIBLE RETREAT)
So then we (somewhat) meet 25 ladies who have no idea who he is... Well, except for one young lady (Cass) who has actually gone on a couple of dates with him outside Bachie Manor. Look, I don't know about you but I find it a little difficult to watch her constantly freaking out with an expressionless reaction on her face all-the-time. There's not a single line on her gorgeous young face, but she has the eyes of a possum in the headlights of 20 Toyota Hilux's ready to race.
The women that stood out for me were Brooke, Brittany, Dasha, Crystal Cayla, Cass, Cat, Juliana, Romy, Shaz and Sophie, and all for very different reasons.
Brooke is stunning! She's sporty, has no idea who he is (which is exactly what he would want), she's really lovely and - completely agreeing with Bachie here - has such an incredible, grounded, earthly energy to her. I'm going to call this now and say that she will be in the top 3. I'm calling it now because he's given her the key to the Bachie Pad.
Brittany is also another lovely lady who I think will be in the top 3 too. There seems to be some instant chemistry between them already. Then along comes Dasha (Darrrr-sha), the seriously exotic Russian PT. Dasha seems so lovely and I adore her accent. I think she might get to home stays, but that's only if Bachie is ok with her little whipper snapper. He did refer to her child like that right? He throws so many sayings in that I just can't keep up.
Then we have Cass. I'm on the fence about her. It's clear that she's got a tonne of feelings for Bachie already having dated him, and being in a room of 24 other women who are already looking at him like he's the steak in the pub is going to be very difficult to deal with. I want to say that the vibes she's giving off are can he just pick me and end the show right now? Just saying. Anyway, good luck to her. Next on my list is Crystal Cayla (because there's 2 Cayla's and this is how I'm differentiating). She's an energy healer and I totally dig that. Crystal Cayla has brought Bachie a 2kg raw rose quartz and infused it with intentions for him to find a wife. I think that's a lovely gesture. But I'm the kind of lady who owns a lot of crystals myself, even a few lunar mists. You read that right. Bite me. Now, the great thing about Crystal Cayla being an energy healer is that she can pick up on BS in a heartbeat... And she does.
Which leads me to bring up Cat from Bali who I'm just not getting the good vibes from. I feel like Channel 10's casting department have thrown Cat in to fight amongst the pigeons and it's not going to end well. I feel like they're trying to make her into Keira 2.0. However, I ended up loving Kiki after watching her on Bachelor in Paradise. Cat is no Kiki and never will be. Soz babe. There's only 1. Plus, she's not calling it how it is, she's coming across as a plain old bully. Which brings me to the next 2 girls: Romy and Alisha (her ride or die's for lyf, or at least until the end of this show or episode). Is it just me or does anyone else feel like the mean girls from Muriel's Wedding turned up to the Bachie Manor to stir sh*t? I know that people have been using Mean Girls as the ref, but come on people we're Australian. We had meaner mean girls in the 90's.
Lastly, there's Sophie. Poor Sophie is one of Cat's first victims and she's not having a bar of it. Alisha (Cat's main pot stirrer) brings up how she and Cat have something in common. Sophie thinks it's because they're both from Brisbane... Nuh. Cat tries to shame her in front of the ladies by saying that Sophie is currently seeing Cat's ex-boyfriend who she saw in Bali 2 weeks ago with photographic evidence. Sophie says that she saw him a couple of times a long time ago and denies currently seeing anyone.
Oh dear, there's going to be a number of episodes featuring the horrible behaviour of 3 women to 22 other women until they're finally booted (whenever that might be). Does anyone know how many episodes of the show we're supposed to get per week? Didn't we used to have a Sunday rose ceremony? Why is that not happening? Are we only getting Wednesday and Thursday nights? I really need some structure people!
The rose ceremony takes a couple of lives but they're not so sad about it because they hadn't really invested anything into him yet. Not like Cass. Gosh, watching her wait for a rose was like an over thinker's purgatory. It looked like she was barely breathing the entire time. So, let's see what happens next whenever that might be.
