Bachelor - Episode 6 - February 9

Open with crazy Kelsey - supposedly having a panic attack on the ground.   My favourite part of this whole "medical emergency" is that the girls are all completely unsympathetic.  The "medical professional" (?) asks if Kelsey needs anything, and she says she needs to talk to Chris.  This girl is ridiculous.  Such a manipulative girl.  Anyway, she comes back in the room and laughs about the whole thing.  She says all "the feelings" were too much.  No one seems impressed.  I was kind of waiting for someone to lay the smack down.

Then Carly is instructed to blindfold Chris, "explore his body" and feed him some foods.  She also has to smell him.   Ok, I'm sure people may do this stuff when alone, but with another person there... it's weird.  Plus, this love Guru keeps kind of creepily smiling.  I'm sure I would have been laughing.  But to make matters worse... the Guru tells them to undress each other.  Um, awkward much.  Luckily Chris says the same thing... which shows me I'm not cr
