The Bachelor recap: Falling Hard

Tierra trips over herself to get Sean's attention, Lesley seals it with an interminable kiss, and Kacie falls victim to the Bachelor Tattle-Tale Curse
Ep. 03 | Aired Jan 21, 2013

MARATHON MAKE-OUT Lesley and Sean go for the Guinness while Harrison and a bunch of bemused tourists look on.


She sits the Bachelor down and tells him she's got something "super serious" to talk to him about. "When you were kind of describing what you're looking for in a woman -- well, you're lookin' at her." Okay, so that's one way to do things. While Sean previously told Desiree he likes her confidence, he doesn't seem as enamored with Amanda's arrogance. "There's a lot that I don't know about you," he begins carefully, but Amanda is just full steam ahead, letting the Bachelor know that if they get married (!!) she'll bring "such a light, airy, fun atmosphere" to their relationship. Amanda seems happy about how the conversation -- if you want to call it that -- went, because she marches back to the other "ladies" and announces, "I'm really looking forward to getting a rose."

Kacie, noticing the "are you effing kidding me?" look Desiree gives Amanda after that comment, decides to use her one-on-one time to warn Sean about the bitchery brewing in his harem. "I don't think he'll tolerate drama," she explains. "So I'm going to try to use that to my advantage. I'm going to be a little selfish right now and bring it up." Yeah, because that always works out so well for women on The Bachelor. And I doubt it's going to work any better for Kacie, who pulls the Bachelor aside and dumps a mess of vague complaints about being "between a rock and a hard place" because of the "different dynamics" between Desiree and Amanda in his lap.

Like every Bachelor before him, Sean wants nothing to do with the intra-bachelorette backbiting happening in the house or on dates. "Why are you saying something to me?" he asks Kacie, who literally cannot come up with an answer. "They both seem fine, and neither one of them has said anything to me about it." Of course, by trying to prove that she's not a "drama person" like the other "ladies" in the house, all Kacie does is make Sean associate her with drama. The good news is, she's now officially left Sean's "friend zone" and entered into his "lunatic zone." Warns the Bachelor, "I want you to act like Kacie, not like this crazy person that I'm seeing." So yeah, huge success. Hey Lindsay, will you accept this rose? Great -- now let's put this night out of its misery.

Moving on, it's time for AshLee's one-on-one date with Sean. If only she didn't put a colossal jinx on the occasion by announcing, "Honestly, nothing will and can go wrong today."

[Muffled thumping noises followed by a woman's weak scream followed by gasps from the other "ladies"] Team Bachelor, do you really mean to tell me that NONE of your cameras were on Tierra until she completed her fall down the stairs? Also, guys, I know Tiny T is no one's favorite person, but did you seriously just leave her sitting there until Sean came in to assess the situation? The Bachelor attempts to find out whether Tierra is okay, but she just sits there, unresponsive, with her head in her hands -- which leads the former college football player to make this diagnosis: "She might have a concussion." Send in the EMTs! Only then does Tierra find her tongue. "I don't want to do this, though," she whines, as the paramedics put a c-collar around her next and a strap her to a backboard. "No! This is so stupid! I just want to be left alone!"
