Chicago + True Love = Panties

bachelor.gifWe hadn’t originally planned on doing a post about The Bachelor premiere, but when one of the twenty-five new bachelorettes said she was from Chicago, we sat up a little straighter on our couch. And when previews showed her making a fool of herself at the inaugural meet-the-bachelor cocktail party, we practically weren’t even slouching anymore.

bachelorstacey.jpgMatt, the new Bachelor from London, seemed like a decent guy, and was eager to get to know the bachelorettes. It was a lovely pah-ty, though as it progressed, Stacey, our Chicago gal, seemed to be really taking advantage of the free booze (can the producers possibly be doing this on purpose?). She slurred her way through a conversation with Matt, and when asked what she liked about London, it was “the ocean.” She later attempted to stuff her panties into Matt’s suit pocket, then slept off the rest of the evening on a temporary mattress set up in the bathroom of the house.

Surprisingly, Stacey was functional enough to make it to the rose ceremony, where she was promptly sent home by Matt, along with 9 other women. So it seems there will be no bachelor wedding bells ringing for Stacey, who is back on the Chicago market, fellas!!
