This past Monday night, viewers watched as The Bachelor, Brad Womack, took the final three hopefuls on overnight dates in South Africa. Dave Good, author of The Man Code, and winner of Bachelor Pad, also tuned in for episode nine. Keep reading to find out what he had to say about the dates…
Dave began his blog this week by enthusing, “SOUTH AFRICA LOOKS AWESOME!!!” He then got right down to commenting on the first date, on which Brad took Chantal on safari along with a guide carrying a loaded gun. Dave remarked on what a cool date it was, and noted, “He still seems the most comfortable around her over anyone else.”
Of course, Chantal and Brad spent the night in a treehouse for their fantasy date, which prompted Dave to quip, “Nothing says romance like a tiger biting your face off in the middle of the night.”
Dave seemed impressed by Brad and Emily riding an elephant on their South African date, and remarked on how ‘hot’ Emily is. He commented on their conversation during the date, saying, “I thought what Brad said to her about her kid about the package deal was really nice and seems like he meant it.” With that said, Dave also noted, “They seem more like good friends to me than a good couple. Neither one really opens up to the other very easy.”
Although Ashley appeared deathly afraid to go up in the helicopter for her date with Brad, she did. Dave says in his blog that it looked like the coolest helicopter ride he’d seen so far on the show. Of Brad and Ashley’s tense date, he says, “Brad seems to act like her dad on this date though. He is giving her fatherly advice. ” Overall, he describes their question and answer session over dinner as, “Awkward!”
Of the unorthodox events at the rose ceremony, with Brad taking Ashley aside and sending her home, Dave notes, “That was not what I expected but I like the way he did it.”
Dave ended this week’s blog remarking that Chantal is his favorite for Brad.
