    Diogo Custodio – The Man Behind the Armor

    When I saw the man get out of the limo in a suit of armor for The Bachelorette Season 9, I was intrigued.

    The Bachelorette Emily Maynard Episode 2. Let the Dates Begin!

    Things I LOVE About Episode 2 and Other Random Thoughts… I LOVE how they opened the show with the local news clip. This was the first of many things that makes filming the show in Charlotte feel so real and less “produced”. I LOVE that Emily brought Ricki to the park for a play date and met with her friends for some girl talk. A girl needs her BFF’s! It sounds like these women will be asking some tough questions of the guys next week on a group date. Who will measure up?  I LOVE Kalon’s comment, “Being in Charlotte is overwhelming. It’s like the frathouse from hell on steroids”.…
