goodness, Batman! (And by "Batman," I do NOT mean Jeff the Mask.)
First and foremost, last night's recap
was lengthy but (I like to think) worth the investment. And today is an extra special day, as Carla and I broke the seal on our very first "Bachelorette Hangover" podcast
, because there was even MORE to discuss beyond the recap.
So we know how those Bachelorette
producers feel when they have to cut out essential conversations and interviews on the first night. There's just too much to cover in a mere two hours. Thankfully, that's what the internet is for. Check out two bonus videos from last night's premiere, including the first Diaries of the Departed and a deleted scene with Ashley and Constantine.
Diaries of the Departed:
Our first and last chance to hear from some of Ashley's eliminated men. Who knew Anthony, "the humble butcher
," was so disinterested? Frank seems like he would have been a fun character ("I'm baffled!"), I'm sad to see him go. But the saddest of all is Jon
, who "fell in love" with Ashley when he watched her last season, and never got a chance to tell her. Love hurts, especially on TV.Deleted Scene: Meet Constantine.
Remember the tall guy who tied a piece of pink floss on Ashley's finger so she wouldn't forget him? Yeah, me neither -- he disappeared for the rest of the episode
! Now's our chance to get to know Constantine. Ashley seems smitten. I predict Constantine will be around for a while.
