Emily Maynard had her first one-on-one date with Jef Holm on The Bachelorette 2012 last night.

Looking about enthused as dirt (he doesn’t show expression!), Jef said he was excited. And they were having tea, so of course he should be excited. And the ironic part was that it wasn’t a one-on-one because there was a etiquette teacher there with them while they learned about a proper tea service. This was not a romantic date. It was like having a strict, maniacal, school marm in the room. She was laughing about scones, I don’t know.

“I’d just rather eat a peanut butter and jelly with the crust,” Emily confessed to Jef. Then they decided to roll on out. They went to a restaurant to talk. And immediately Jef brought up that he’d heard Kalon say Ricki was baggage. This seemed like a bad move… you know, to bring it up. But Emily seemed to respect hearing more about what had happened that day.

Emily said she felt Jef was hard to read, and I think that’s because he doesn’t show expressions. I feel like he’s constantly zoned out on Xanax or something. Emily noted that she takes things slow, but she was worried Jef took things even slower.

They went to eat in the “London Eye” which was like a glass egg that moved up and down. He got a rose. Blah blah.
