Oh my… all week we’ve been excited because the ads for tonight’s episode look SO GOOD.
There are intruders. There are fully grown men in knight outfits for no conceivable reason. There’s a very pissed off Georgia Love dressed as a princess, telling the camera she’s “humiliated”. Something about her elaborate costume makes the situation all the more… tragic. No one wants to feel EMBARRASSED in costume. NO ONE.
But there to ease us in to all the drama is the always-keen Osher.
We’d like to pause for a moment to acknowledge the secondary plot line that has been underlying (i.e. driving) this entire season. You see, with all of Osher’s years on The Bachelor, he’s made some solid female friends. He knows how to connect with women. But men… he, um. He… doesn’t know how, as evidenced by:
a) The awkward skip in episode two, and
b) The unnecessary and frankly outdated ‘peace sign’ attempt in episode three.
HE IS AWKWARD AF AROUND THE GUYS AND IT’S OUR FAVOURITE PART OF THE WHOLE ENTIRE WORLD.
So tonight Osher arrives and he’s clearly been working on his ‘bro’ walk.
Osher arrives with the single date card and the men all make a fuss.
He says "HOW ARE THANGS" far too loudly and we both die a little inside. He tells himself they are all just very excited to see him... it probably has nothing to do with the single date card.
He plonks it down on the table, and then lingers. It's like he has more than overstayed his welcome but... he has nowhere else to go. Eventually he gets shooed away.
