‘Ello Mates! This week The Bachelor and the group of women vying for his heart are headed down under to lush New Zealand!

This week we probably need to revisit some basic rules in patience – what’s that saying?  “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.”

Do: Bring your passport.  I mean seriously.  Whether you find love or not, you’re in some pretty amazing places, tonight’s jaunt to New Zealand, included,

Don’t: Rush the one-on-one date.  Andi, you and Juan Pablo have had some good alone time, no need to wish for a full one on one, those are best reserved for the bachelorettes The Bachelor isn’t sure about or whose names he can’t remember.

Secondly, Andi…
Do: see that waiting your turn is your best bet.  Poor Andi was whining when The Bachelor wouldn’t kiss her after kissing a other woman that week because he’s setting an example for his daughter…well fade in on two episodes later and he and Andi are hot and heavy in a cavernous waterfall.

Do: Be Aggressive. B.E. Agressive.  Clare proves that stealing the Bachelor during group dates and well for an after hours swim is the way to keep his attention.

Don’t: Think your birthday will spare you.  Sorry Cassandra, hope you got a great cake and some presents when you arrived back…at home.

Do: Revel in being the only mom still in the house.  The Bachelor loves his daughter and wants someone who’s ready be a parent or, even better, already is.  Renee, that means when Cassandra gets the axe, you’re the one left with an edge, embrace it!

Don’t: be Sharleen.  I mean really –  she’s not into him, then she is, now she’s not sure.  All next week in Miami.

Don’t: Try to be friends.  It’s always surprising when several weeks in one woman says to the other, “We’re never going to be friends.” Of course not, it’s not called  Friends.

Next week, Exotic….Miami.  Seriously.  I think Miami’s great and as “international” a city could be in the United States, but it IS in the United States, so after random trips to South Korea and New Zealand The Bachelor: International Edition is over, and we’re back in the good ‘ole US of A.
