The Bachelor London Calling Recap - May 12, 2008

Wow, I have to say, I didn't see that one coming on The Bachelor London Calling finale.

Let's start from the top:

First Chelsea meets Matt Grant's parents and his brother, whom, I must say, definitely lost the lottery in the looks department. His mom, Trish, is immediately skeptical of her, but as she continues to speak to her on a one-on-one basis, she begins to warm to her.

Then mother and son have a chat, which is way too calm and logical by any parent/child standards, and off Chelsea goes into the night.

Next, Matt picks up Shayne and he takes her on a tour of London and she behaves like a 4-year-old who's never been on a bus before. It's so cute, it's sickening. As she enters his parents' house, you can immediately tell that no one there thinks she's Matt's type...except Matt. So his fat, mustached brother starts interrogating her and, being the casting couch pro that she is, Shayne takes him head on and earns his respect. Then he went to the washroom and masturbated to her likeness, but they cut that part out of the show.

After Shayne splits, Matt has a candid conversation with his parents and bro regarding the 2 girls and admits that he's most comfortable with Shayne but feels more passion for Chelsea.

Then the trio heads back to Barbados and Matt and Chelsea take a helicopter ride tour of Barbados, end up on a deserted beach and make out while laying in the sand and water. After their picnic, they head back to the Hilton (plug), admit they're falling in love with each other and make out until the producers force him out of her hotel room.

Next he hooks up with Shayne and takes her parasailing, which she thoroughly enjoyed. After listening to her soliloquy about how wonderful and perfect everything is, they head back to the Hilton (once again, plug) and she gives him what she calls "the most important present you will ever receive in this relationship." It was a cool gift: she gave him a trio of pictures of herself writing "I love you" in the sand.

Then she spent the next little while acting like a 4-year-old again with stunning questions and statements like, "Ma-a-a-a-tttt, it says 'I love you," and "Do you like my present?" It was pretty nauseating, but Matt gobbled it up like a sap.

After a quick shop for an engagement ring, it was time to confront the girls.

First out, Chelsea. You know what that mean... after the requisite, "you're so fantastic, we had good times" speech, he rejected her and admitted that she took too long to show her feelings. She didn't take it very well and started blasting Shayne by saying "She's the falsest person here." Matt got visibly pissed and defended his darling. As she drove away, Chelsea said, "He's a fool."

So next was Shayne, so you could just imagine the drama that was about to erupt. He started his speech and she was getting nervous... but then he got on one knee, she almost passed out and he asked her to marry him by asking "Monkey, will you marry me?" It was very endearing.

So there you have it: Matt Grant proposed to Shayne Lamas and she said yes. Stay tuned for the break up.
