I repeat: IS
Stevie the Party Emcee this season's Jeff the Mask? I mean, there are obvious differences. For instance, we can see Stevie's face, because Stevie is not wearing a mask as an overwrought and cliched symbolic attempt to get Emily to appreciate him for his personality rather than his looks. That would be the main
difference between Stevie the dancin' disco DJ and Jeff the mask-wearing weirdo.
But Stevie does seem to be getting the "Jeff treatment" from the rest of the guys in this deleted scene from last night's Bachelorette premiere
. They're laughing at and talking to him, but that's because he poses so little threat to them. He asks for the attention, yes, but he thinks he's showing off, and they see him as a sideshow. They're mocking him, basically -- and he is either too trusting or too oblivious to know it. And Emily seems to have no idea what to think of Stevie, yet gave him a rose anyway -- much like Ashley did with Jeff. Stevie also reminds me of Jeff in that I love him, yet I do not like him. Does that make sense? I want him to emcee my bat mitzvah, but mostly so I could laugh at his terrible song choices and ridiculous dance moves. But then we'd go out drinking together after. Oh, Stevie. You've got me so conflicted! Please overstay your welcome.
And oh, my Bachelorette buddies! Check out this deleted scene of Stevie's KILLER dance moves, and then see the always entertaining and depressing Diaries of the Departed, in which Emily's first casualties of the season express their confusion, regret and drunkenness: Deleted Scene: The Stevie Dance. Stevie choreographs hip hop. And he's not afraid to break it down. Break it down all the way to the ground.Diaries of the Departed: Night One.
It's time for another round of Bachelorette

I just wanted to explore love
I wish it could have lasted longer
She's a great girl, but she's only one girl
I've got a lot going for me
She was a beautiful girl, I'll just keep searching
I'm a phenomenal catch
If she wasn't feelin' it, I'll accept that
But I came a long way, and it was over fast
If it's not in the cards, it's not in the cards
I hope she finds love, I really do
Everything happens for a reason
And it'll happen for me(Image courtesy of ABC)
