The Bachelor 13: Season Premiere Recap (Page 1/3)
Hoo boy! The Bachelor has made it to its 13th season. Let's hope, for Jason Mesnick's sake, that 13 is a lucky number.

Now, before I get started with my recap, I have to explain to y'all that I took a trip to the ophthalmologist this morning, and my eyes are still dilated. So, my judgment regarding the attractiveness levels of the Mrs. Mesnick Wannabes might be questionable.

Alrighty then. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll remember that Jason was a contender but ultimately a loser in the quest for the hand of the lovely DeAnna Pappas on The Bachelorette (after she herself got rejected by Brad Womack on a previous season of The Bachelor). But, he's a resilient one, that Jason. They're bred like that in the Pacific Northwest, and he's back to look for another woman. Because, you see, now he knows he can love again.

Oh yay, there are establishing shots of Seattle and the famous fish throwing at Pike Place Market. The show, however, is being filmed in Los Angeles. Jason has brought his little boy, Ty, along too. Jason's brother Larry is also there to play babysitter. I'm distracted by all the shirtless shots of Jason doing pull-ups and push-ups. I wonder if he always looked like that, or if ABC made him beef up before the show. Whatever the case may be, he's a pretty hot FILF.

There are 25 lovely ladies getting ready to meet Jason. They are all homogeneously attractive and indistinct as of yet. So far, I'm rooting for the Canadian restaurant designer, Jillian, because she's Canadian. Plus, she's from Vancouver, which is just about the coolest city in North America and just a hop, skip and a jump away from Seattle. I also like the dental hygienist because I too am a "tooth Nazi." Go flossing! Uh oh, Nikki is a pageant girl. Stay away, Jason!

There are three single moms in the running for Jason's affections. I wonder if they'll have the kids meet too, which I would totally want to see. Kids are so unpredictable, and they might not hit it off with Ty. Then we could have, like a Supernanny-Bachelor crossover event.

Time for everyone to meet. The ladies, dressed to the nines, pile into a limo to meet their Prince Charming. Ty gives his dad a thumbs-up before he gets into his limo. Now, it might just be my dilated pupils, but Ty isn't that cute, is he? So sad, for such a young tyke.
