Week three of this fabulous reality show has come to a conclusion… and the conclusion is Chris likes to kiss all the ladies.

For some reason, the producers thought that this episode need a little bit of help and brought in Jimmy Kimmel. He helped with some of the dates and provided some laughs but proved to be other wise useless – besides him crying at the end when he did not receive a rose.

One-one-one: Jimmy sent Chris and Kaitlyn on a romantic date to Costco. Yes, Costco. Somehow, they find themselves distracted by a huge blow-up ball and they both climb inside. The show then enlist some brief child labor to get a few girls to push them down an aisle – because thats what we all do at Costco. The highlight of the night = Jimmy calling Chris out on his horrific speeches. “You have a way with words. Are there people on the farm or just animals?” Thank you, Jimmy.

Group date: This ho-down includes Britt, Jillian, Becca, Tracy, Mackenzie, Kelsey, Amber, Ashley S., Juelia, Samantha, Nikki and Carly. The ladies have to prove themselves through five different activities: shucking corn, cracking eggs, milking goats (and drinking it), shoveling manure and wrestling a greased pig. While all bets were on Jillian, Carly emerges as the winner. But, does anyone really win when you have to wrestle a pig? Nope, didn’t think so.

In this date, Chris decides to do what he does best… which is make out with all the girls. Mackenzie decided to call him out on this, but then backed away before the drama got real.

One-on-one: A matching Whitney and Chris go out for a romantic dinner date at a resort… where there just happens to be a wedding happening (totally not planned at all!). So, they naturally decide to crash the wedding. I actually thought this date was really cute. But could have lived without Chris saying “I’m surprised by her… Theres a lot more going on than I thought.” So, you had no thoughts about her other than just another face? Sure.

Who went home: Amber, Tracy and Trina.

Somehow Ashely S. and Mackenzie managed to stick it out for another week. Still not sure how thats happening.

What did you think of the episode? Still liking Chris as the Bachelor?

Where we left off last week was with bold Kimberly who come back to crash the cocktail party. She came back for a second chance, and he accepted.

First group date: Prince Farming had six gals compete in a tractor race… in bikinis. You can take the boy out of the farm, but he’s still bringing the tractors to LA. Single mom, Mackenzie got some one-on-one time and the rose from that date.

One-on-one: This one went to Megan, with a date that included a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon and a picnic lunch. She spilled quite a bit of emotional baggage, and he seemed to fall for her even more. I like this girl – we will see how she fairs! He did give her the rose on the date.

Second group date: Lets call this American Horror Story: Bachelor Edition. The second group date includes Kelsey, Trina, Alissa, Tracy, Jillian, Becca, Amber, Ashley S., Juelia, Kaitlyn, and Britt. I think he is finally understanding that Ashley S. is nuts…

Let’s see – things that were covered in this episode… Mackenzie came clean about being a mom, dead husbands and Ashley I being a virgin. This is going to be one interesting season.

Who went home: Alissa, Jordan, Kimberly (again), and Tara were sent packing. Really? No Ashley? Ugh.

The newest man to be crowned Bachelor Chris Soules struggled sending home some of the ladies, but ended up sending eight ladies packing out of his original 30 (the highest number of ladies ever!).

There were quite a few aww-worthy introductions, and many “did that just really happen?” Like Tara, who showed up in one outfit, and then changed, snuck back into the limo and walked out again. And Carly, the cruise ship singer who walked out singing.

The first episode is always a little boring to me. Too much back story on the wrong girls, too much time introducing everyone, and too much time on the whole show!

My favorites so far are Britt (free hugs gal from LA) and Whitney the fertility nurse from Chicago.

Chris ends up eliminating eight girls: Nicole, Amanda, Kara, Kimberly, Bo, Brittany, Michelle and Reegan… and kept three obnoxiously drunk girls.

While I am not a fan of some of his final decisions, it’s no question that this season will bring plenty of drama.

What do you think? Did Chris send home the right ladies?
