“The Bachelor” Recap: One Woman Won’t Kiss Sean & Another Gets A Date Fit For A Hooker

Amelia McDonell-Parry / January 29, 2013

I’ve talked a lot about the diversity on “The Bachelor” this season, specifically focusing on the two black women who’ve made it farther than in any of the previous seasons. But there are also two other women of color in Sean’s group of lucky paramours — Catherine, who’s Asian, and Selma, who’s Iraqi. Last night, we got to learn a little more about Selma’s Muslim upbringing and how it affects her approach to appearing on “The Bachelor.” Let the recapping begin!

Drumroll … who’s getting the first one-on-one date with Sean this week? It’s Selma! Selma and Sean have had serious heat between them all season, but haven’t had much alone time, so what does Sean have planned for their special date? He wants to take classy, perfectly-coiffed, always-in-heels Selma and drop her in the middle of the desert — for a little rock climbing. Sean like a gal who can be outdoorsy. I suspect that he is also one of those dudes who says (and probably thinks) he prefers “no makeup” on a woman, when he really means he prefers the “no makeup look.” Anyway, Selma is not particularly psyched about mountaineering. The dry heat makes her feel all puffy. As for rock climbing? She’s a tiny little pocket person; how is she going to manage scaling such a huuuuuuge rock? Turns out, she fares just fine and gets to the top before Sean does, despite the gravity of her breasts holding her down. Looking at the vast horizon from the top of the rock, Selma is proud of herself for roughing it for a day. Sean, meanwhile, has managed to get even tanner in the process.

Tierra, meanwhile, is still fuming that everyone in the house isn’t worshipping her for being the special, pretty little flower that she is, and decides to clear the air with Robyn, her main foe. Because she “hates drama,” you guys. I’m pretty sure if you’re someone who constantly declares “I hate drama!” you are probably causing the most.

Selma and Tierra already have roses, and the remaining roses go to Catherine, Des, Lindsay, Lesley, Robyn, AshLee, Sarah, Jackie and Daniella. I fully expected Sean to give the final rose to Amanda because she’s gotten way more camera time than Jackie and, wait, WHO THE HELL IS JACKIE, again? Oh, she’s the girl who dyes her hair with Feria. Clearly. Anyway, peace out Amanda. I will miss your creepy stares.
