4. The Appeal of Kari
Last week, the guys were fawning over Kari. We got a montage of Keith, Denzel, Romeo, and Ben drooling over Kari’s sexiness. At the time, I was like, “Really? Her? She doesn’t even make the cast.” She does make the cast, it turns out, but I had forgotten about her because her appearance didn’t stand out to me.
I’d like to thank Tyra for paying Kari a few backhanded compliments this week. “Everything is just so wrong on her face. Her mouth is too big for her face, her forehead is huge, her eyes are too far apart, and it adds up to fierce.” Suddenly, with this new outlook, I see her appeal.
At least now I can understand why the boys are continuing to crush over her in episode two. That includes Keith who just… might… wait… yes… yes, he does like Kari. It’s nice to see he put some thought into it first, though.
Also still crushing? Ben. They have so much in common, like that they both went to college in Iowa. Plus, they both must be super smart considering they received degrees in Iowa.
Which of her many suitors does Kari return affection for? None of them, apparently. Kari confesses to the girls, “I think that the more I learn the boys’ personalities, the more I don’t think they’re attractive.” With this group of guys, that’s an astute observation, Kari. For starters, they were cast on a reality show. 75% of the time, that’s really not a compliment because they want unstable people who make good TV. Someone who can pass a psych test, but not someone who aces it, if you catch my drift.
Sorry, Ben. At least you have a back-up plan: a bromance with Adam. Go figure that the two douchiest people of the cast would connect. While I reckon it’s a match made in heaven for them, it’s going to be pretty hellish for me to watch these two do pull-ups and play fight throughout the cycle. Keeping dodging this bullet, Kari.
Nice facial expressions, Ben!
