Good Idea? Bad Idea?

This week, I'm looking at this whole Bachelorette Journey thing a little different. Let's play a little game of Good Idea/Bad Idea, Bachelorette Canada Style. Yes, I am making the rules up as I go.

The One With All the Red Flags and Damage Control

As Jasmine's Journey continues in Jamaica...
  • Jasmine has learned to let herself go, to open herself up to everybody. She says every decision she makes brings her one step closer to finding her man.
  • Kyle wants to solidify the connection he is now feeling with Jasmine
  • David wants a date so the other guys will stop calling him "Dateless Dave." [So we're pretty sure he will get one.]
  • Chris will be extremely shocked if he doesn't get a date. [So we're pretty sure he won't get one.]

It's Time for "DATING TIPS ...with Jasmine"

(A.K.A. My recap of The Bachelorette Canada Episode 2)

Dating is a hell of a thing to begin with. Now multiply that by 15. I suppose if you're dating fifteen guys simultaneously, even the most experienced person is bound to gain some new insights very quickly. Just the thought of remembering all those names is mind boggling, not to mention who said what and when. So let's follow along with Jasmine's Journey as she discovers her new found role as a Dating Advisor. What valuable lessons will Jasmine pass on to us this week?

My Weekly Predictions Scorecard: Week Two Predictions

Here are my guesses for Week Two:

Week 1 Results:
I got 13 out of 15 right. Not bad. She dumped Eddie and Tony, kept JP and Kevin P instead. I was so sure TPTB would push Canada's Crush Eddie on her. And I was right about Mike getting the First Impression Rose. And knowing what we know now, I would change my guesses for 1st 1-on-1 & 1st kiss. Oh well.

14 Things I Learned From The Bachelorette Canada Premiere

Right off the bat, I have to say I am much more impressed with The Bachelorette Canada than I ever was with The Bachelor Canada. It seems W Network has gone full steam ahead, producing and promoting their franchised version, creating a far superior product. In comparison, it is no wonder The Bachelor Canada died a miserable death after only two seasons. Twenty bachelors. A new host. Ninety-minute episodes. An After Show hosted by Jennifer Valentyne. Yeah, I'm in.

Now, on to the recap...and instead of a rehash of events, lets do this a little different. Although this isn't my first time watching anything from the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, let's pretend it's a brand new experience.  Here's my list of the things I learned from the premiere:

Those Bachelors, Eh?

Yes, it's time to light those fairy lights, fire up the candles, stick 20 guys in a limo, and above all else, hose down that driveway. Tonight is the night, folks!

I've intentionally tried to limit my impressions of the Jasmine's Bachelors until after the premiere.
We've been given all those silly, darn bios and videos. And those profile pics??? It's like they are just taunting us with those. Hey. I can't just let that go, can I? Jasmine gets a First Impression Rose, so why can't I give my first impressions? Alright, here goes, then I will use that prediction table:
