The Bachelorette Recap: Down To Earth, Honest, And Simply Nice
Recap by Senior RTVC Staff Writer Gayl Killough

No spark. No rose.
The second episode of The Bachelorette with Emily Maynard aired last night.
This is my first chance to watch The Bachelorette this season and I am very pleasantly surprised by the changes made for Emily.
It was a really enjoyable experience to watch and an episode that I could easily enjoy watching again.
This reminded me of why The Bachelorette has been one of my guilty pleasures since it has aired. Prior to this, every season in The Bachelor franchise seemed to get trashier, more tabloid like, and well just plain mean.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Any sense of subtle conflict, and any sense of the relationships seemed to have been sacrificed for a tabloid shock kind of viewpoint.
Since Emily is a single mother with her daughter Ricki, the powers that be have finally decided to throw in a balance of class back into the franchise.
While I appreciate the sensitivity toward Emily having a daughter and being a single mother, I think it is a shame that someone without children is not given the same consideration for some class.
Yes, I realize that this is a reality show, but the point is that many viewers like myself want to enjoy the romantic experience instead of going OMG can you believe what happened.
I want to be kind of an armchair viewer to sharing the experience along with Emily and wishing her the best that she will really find someone that she can marry and be a father to Ricki.
I also really love that this show is set in a mansion where Emily currently lives in Charlotte. Place is very important and it is important in consideration if the couple can make it once the reality show has quit airing.
I feel like I have not had too much experience with traveling, but the older I get, I have been quietly gaining my inventory of places that I have traveled. I have traveled to the Charlotte region and I have a cousin who lives not to far away from Charlotte, so I have some sense of the actual place that this is being filmed, and some sense of Emily's background.
All this helps to make this experience of this reality show to feel more real.
Socio-economic backgrounds and regional cultures also play into shaping us as human beings. I am so glad to see some of the interplay among the bachelors.
