We open with Sophie walking in slow motion along a beach in jeans and, no.
Jeans are not a thing you wear to the beach. It’s… stressful.
There is suspense, you see, as tonight Sophie must meet the families of four men, and choose her final three.
But we have no concern for that.
No. We’re concerned that wet sand is going to flick up as she walks and enter her jeans at any moment and then start itching for the rest of forever.
First - we're on a vineyard with a man who cannot for the life of him pronounce the word vineyard (it's vin-yed... not VIN-YARD).
It's awkward, because now Sophie thinks that's just how it's pronounced so she also says vin-yard, and they're in this cycle of mispronunciation and THERE IS NO WAY OUT.
Sophie asks Jarrod who she'll be meeting and the answer, like Jarrod himself, is too much all at once.
Listen to Michelle Andrews and Zara McDonald debrief on tonight's episode of The Bachelorette. Post continues after audio.
After listing every member of his immediate family, he says, "My best friend Chris. He's my brother,"and... wait... is he your... friend or... brother?
But none of that matters, because Jarrod has invited everyone he's ever met, including Tom who he sat next to in Year One (they weren't particularly close) and Louis who he met in the line at Aldi last week.
