The Bachelorette: To Warn Or Not To Warn - Here's The Rankings
Commentary by RTVC Senior Staff Writer Joseph Braverman
June 12, 2012
Big words, little tact.
The Bachelorette was back in form this week with a “West Virginian, hood-rat, backwoods” Emily Maynard that kicked some serious pompous ass!
It’s hard to discuss much else about the episode without diving into Emily’s great face-off with Mr. Faux-Shakespeare himself, Kalon.
What ensued was a verbal beat down unlike any other, topped with the best use of giving one’s own medicine back by not letting them interrupt!
Emily, way to turn Kalon’s jerky antics back around towards him and see how he likes it!
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Oh Kalon, you may be looked down upon by America, but you certainly served your purpose in entertaining us to the max.
Kalon knows so many vocabulary words, but has little knowledge of how to formulate tactful sentences, that I doubt he’ll be much comfort to any woman unless he changes himself for the better in this regard.
When Kalon unleashed the “B” word to his fellow competitors, all hell broke loose! I happen to find it very telling that Mr. Righteous himself, Doug, was the one who told Emily about Kalon’s “baggage” talk.
It seemed like his agenda was to show America how great he is as a dad rather than going out of his way to defend Emily and her daughter’s honor.
I personally don’t think Kalon is as evil or villainous as Ryan, but I do want to understand why he ended up saying the things he did.
I reckon he probably got away with a lot as a child, and wasn’t sufficiently corrected on how to remain politically correct about things.
Maybe by having a single mom raise him, Kalon was less cognizant of the implications he was making about Ricki since he probably saw himself as baggage for his own mom.
Those are Kalon’s assumptions about children raised by single parents, not my own.
Do you think Emily handled herself pretty well? I have mixed feelings on this one, even though I really love and support everything Emily does.
I believe she definitely had a right to be upset and let Kalon go, but sometimes her loaded use of the word “blessing” when describing the role Ricki fits in amongst a group of strangers, who have yet to meet her, seemed a bit much.
