It’s been a big week on The Bachelor.
Not only have there been intruders allowed into the house, but one of them seems to have actually won Sam’s heart. Competition between the girls is getting really tense – so tense, in fact, the roses on the platter at the rose ceremonies almost curled up and died out of sheer discomfort.
Here’s our weekly round-up of The Bachelor’s top Diamond Grade Moments – the Cringe-worthy, the Cute, the Cunning, and the Charming.
I have to say, one of the intruders is looking like a serious contender to take out the whole competition. Lana, a communications assistant from NSW, has really hit it off with Sam. After the friendly (and by ‘friendly’ I mean ‘horribly competitive and humiliating’) competition in which the girls had to show Sam their skills at coaching children in a PE lesson, Sam chose Lana to go on a single date. WOAH.
The old girls were NOT happy. Sam and Lana slow-danced to Jamie Lawson (he was there, live… Interesting career choice, Jamie) on a romantically lit deck. There was touching. There was deep eye contact. There was the exchanging of roses (well, Sam gave Lana one. She did not give him any. Rude). Judging by the look in Sam’s eyes, the other five girls were completely forgotten. Sam and Lana forevzzzz.
One word. Diamonds. GUYS. REAL DIAMONDS. Sam took sweet Sarah on a solo date, and before they could get down to the business of sitting on a couch with their own private opera singer as entertainment, they went for a little limo ride. Sam started reminiscing about an earlier beach date when Sarah had lost an earring and taken it like a trooper… and then he produced some replacement earrings.
Sarah was so excited about her fancy diamond present, she said “Honestly, I would have been fine going home after he gave me those earrings”, which makes me think she is my soul sister. Good priorities, girl. Jewellery first. Anyway, their date was pretty darn cute, with flowers including a special rose-ceremony rose, and a good ol’ fashioned make-out session.
