  • A spin-off series from ABC's hit reality show, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette follows one woman in the search for her own Mr. Right from a pool of 25 eligible young men. After several weeks of meeting different men, going on amazing dates, and learning about their home lives, The Bachelorette will have the opportunity to continue dating one bachelor in the real world by presenting them with a single, red rose. Before this can happen, The Bachelorette must follow a gradual process of elimination, as her initial 25 bachelors are narrowed down week by week. At any point along the way, should a man decide that he is no longer interested in The Bachelorette, he may reject her invitation to continue dating. This unique dating process will give both the bachelors and bachelorette an unforgettable experience and an opportunity to make new friendships and quite possibly find true love, but after all of this, will the man she chooses accept her rose, and if he does will he pop the question? The 5th season began May 2012 as 25 would-be suitors vie for the Bachelorette's hand.moreless

    • Jesse: I'm the type of guy who..…I didn't wanna go on the internet and read all about you. I want to genuinely get to know you because… DeAnna: I like that. Jesse:….some reporter from New Jersey could have wrote some blog about you that's totally BS. So I wanted you to know that that's how I'm with you. Like I didn't want to just read it, I wanted to feel it.

    • DeAnna: So are you still bartending now? Graham: Umm, I just manage now. DeAnna: I bartended for nine years, I can relate. Graham: Really? So you can sling drinks, huh? DeAnna: I can sling a few. Probably show you up! Graham: I believe it. If I wasn't intimidated before, I am now!

    • Chandler: It's actually really disappointing because I don't think she saw me for who I really am. I mean, I'm sitting there with some other character and he's lifting up his shirt and flexing his abs! If I wanted to, I could have done the same thing! I'm here for one reason and one reason only. I flew across the country to meet this girl. I was given the opportunity of a lifetime and I did nothing with it. It's just really disappointing.

    • DeAnna: I know that at the end of this show that it will be a fairytale ending.

    • Luke: The chemistry obviously wasn't there for her. She's an awesome girl and a beautiful girl. She deserves true love after what happened on the last show. All those guys are in there are great guys. I'm just a country boy. I'm not used to all this. So I'll go home.

    • DeAnna: Living with three guys is going to be very interesting. It's going to be intimate, seeing each other first thing in the morning and last thing before we go to sleep. And I believe that this is the best way to find love.

    • DeAnna: I've never been to Seattle. Jason: Oh, you'd love it. DeAnna: But I feel like it's raining and everybody falls in love.

    • Robert: If there's one frontrunner in this competition right now, it's Jeremy. As demoralizing as that is to say, it's still Jeremy.

    • The Bachelorette's Diary Tonight was really tough. I didn't expect it. I mean, I expected it to be tough, but just walking down the stairs and having everybody just standing there waiting to find out if I would be offering them a rose was the most overwhelming part of the entire evening. Even more so than seeing them walk out of the limo. It was so surreal and — and nauseating almost. I got through it, and it's fine, and I hope that the ten guys who aren't here, forgive me for not giving them roses. First impressions... Oh my god, hands down Bob made me laugh the most tonight. He's hilarious and I love that. Just because he might not be, you know, the model type and someone who's in a magazine doesn't mean that he's not a great guy. I'm definitely looking forward to getting to know more about him and just not just his sense of humor. Greg T. We had a really good conversation out on the patio, he's got beautiful eyes and a great smile and he's a singer. And that definitely is a turn on for me, someone singing to me. I haven't heard him sing yet but I've - I've dated a couple singers and they've definitely been good relationships, very memorable. When I offered Rob the rose, he just stood there like a deer in front of headlights. And I thought for a minute that I said it wrong, you know, that I called the wrong name because I'm looking at him right in the eye. So I say "Rob" and he took a second and — and started walking towards me with this big huge smile and his cute little dimples showing. And he gets up to me and he says thank you right away, and so I said "So I guess I don't need to ask you if you're gonna accept this rose." He's very sweet, he's got a very sensitive demeanor about him and I really like that. Jamie is definitely a looker. He's a cutie pie. I'm attracted to Jamie's looks for sure. But that's not the only thing about him I like. He's got a great personality, and we really clicked well. Josh and I had a great conversation when we had our one on one little moment which he kind of initiated which was good. And he made me laugh so I think we have a very compatible sense of humor. He's very sarcastic and so am I. And he seemed extremely sincere also in being here and — and wanting to get to know me. I got really emotional after I gave away the last rose because I know what it feels like to not get one. And even though it's very early on in the process I just felt really bad that I couldn't keep all the guys around and have a lot more fun like we did tonight. But the bottom line is it's about me finding just one, and I hope that they honor that and respect that.

    • The Bachelorette's Diary Tonight was all over the place. I was happy one minute and feeling like crap the next. It was a night of surprises, that's for sure. I think that Jeff may have taken it the hardest with not getting a rose tonight because I think he was genuinely interested in getting to know me more. I don't want him in anyway to think that he wouldn't have been someone that I would have been with had I had been, younger. I mean, it's strange, but Mike is the same age as Jeff and for some reason, Jeff just seems younger to me. I think Mike seems more at my level in terms of where I am in life and what I'm looking for. There were a lot of interesting moments with Charlie tonight. The moment that I remember the most with him was sitting out in our private one-on-one conversation, and him telling me that he definitely wants to have kids some day. It made me feel so relieved because I so did not want to see him go. I really see a big connection with him at this point and I don't see it changing at all. I just see it growing. I don't know where I'm going to be throughout this journey, where my emotions are going to take me. I have to concentrate on being in the moment and, yes, tonight has been a complete emotional roller coaster. I have let some tears shed and felt some things that I didn't expect to feel throughout this whole process. I mean, at least not this intensely.

    • Ryan's Third Poem "Something About Her" Here I am, not knowing where I stand. Here I am, looking for a place to land. My heart in the palm of her hand, A boy dying to be her man. Between tomorrow and yesterday What I really want to say Is that I'm falling for something about her. She is to me the rainbow through the rain. She is to me the laughter through the pain. Like sugar from the cane, directly through my veins. She's living in my dreams She's a vision, and it seems That I'm falling for something about her My life has been a ship sailing sea to sea. My life has been completely set free. Moments of ecstasy, all I could hope it to be. Now with her I'd like to share To show her how much I care 'Cause I'm falling for something about her. I'd like to say I'll love her night and day I'd like to say I'll never turn away Forever, come what may By her side I'll always stay She's every star that's in the sky Every glimmer in my eye And I'm falling for something about her.

    • The Bachelorette's Diary Tonight was truly difficult, but I didn't realize how difficult it was until I came out and saw the guys standing there waiting for me. Being that I have been through this process before, and thinking about what I felt when I was sitting there waiting for Alex to call out names, when I was sitting on the opposite side, I remember how intensely my heart was beating. I really thought that I was going to shoot out of my shirt, when I was sitting where these guys were sitting tonight. I am feeling so many things right now. I have to focus on the positive, but at the same time out of respect I need to focus on the guys that left here tonight without a rose. They gave me so much of their lives, and I know that they each wanted to be here and they may have all worked, but because of this process, I could only keep four. The four left… Charlie has "got game", but I don't think that makes him a player. It just shows me that he is very social and sincere. The connection that we have for each other is very real. He has confidence about him and I like that Ryan was the next to last person that I called tonight and he reached for his heart. It was very touching that he thought that he was not going to be called, but we have a great connection. I think that he is thinking that in his mind it is all about the poetry, but that is far from the truth. Russ and I had an immediate first connection. The first night he walked through the door we had this spark that I think everyone could see. I don't think that I could just throw that to the wind. My friends gave me a piece of advice. They told me not to really consider, necessarily, who I should be taking to their home town, but who I could regret not taking...and Russ is that person. Greg and I have connected extremely well in our alone time together and I feel something there that we need to explore. I feel a natural thing happening between us. I really wanted to go with him to his hometown to see if my gut is telling me something true. Things are going to change from here on out in that at the hometown visits I will get to be with these guys in their environment, and in the environment that they feel most comfortable in. I think that things will happen romantically from now on, but I am not going to push the physical issue. I am not going to go out of my way to get physical contact with these guys. In my mind it is about things happening naturally.

    • The Bachelorette's Diary Tonight was really hard, but not until I handed out the third rose to Russ did I realize how hard it was gonna affect me. It really affected me after I handed out the rose to Russ, and Greg was standing there all by himself, knowing that he wouldn't be able to come back anymore, and knowing that the connection that we had tried so hard to form wouldn't be continuing on. My 30th birthday… Well, the time I got to spend with the guys tonight actually clouded my judgement a little bit and made me think, am I going the right way with my decision? Am I making a mistake? Because Greg was somebody that I felt like was trying too hard and kinda pushing things a little bit beyond natural limits, and when he mentioned that the end of our evening in New York was something that he felt pressured about, it kind of broke the ice and made me re-think should I be giving Greg a rose or not? Ryan came in and instantly put a smile on my face, and it wasn't the gift, but he walked in here, he didn't know where to go, and you know, just seeing him made me feel better. And we just talked about, you know, small talk stuff. It felt very natural. Nothing forced at all. And then he read his card to me. And it was, of course, very heartfelt, very expected from Ryan — it's just how he is. And then I opened the gift, and for him to have given me a painting that he painted in a day, nonetheless, but the fact that he listened to me made me feel so much better about him because he — he painted a painting of a white tiger. And when Ryan and I were at Sea World, I told him that white tigers are one of my favorite animals. And for Ryan to have given me the gift of a painting of a white tiger, because he knew that was my favorite animal, really touched me. Greg walked in and — you know, tonight was a hard decision between Greg and Russ getting the final third rose. And when he came and talked about how the end of our date in New York felt pressured because of the situation and everything, he really talked to my heart because that's what I was feeling. And that was one of my main reasons for thinking that Greg and I wouldn't work out, but when he talked about how he wasn't himself and he thought about all these things that he should've done while I was in his apartment, he really made me re-think my decision about tonight. Russ really surprised me. I'm looking at the box that he brought into the deliberation room as my gift, and I'm thinking, oh, he probably got me lingerie or something sweet that a boyfriend would give a girlfriend and, you know, the traditional gift. And I opened it and pull out a picture of the sunset that he took on the last day he was in San Francisco, where he wanted me to be there with him. And it was — it's a personal, private moment between us and that just meant a whole lot to me. And then he gave me a CD that he made with a picture and "Happy Birthday Trista" written on the CD. Charlie came into the deliberation room and instantly we started talking about his family, and he thanked me for opening myself up to his family, and being myself in his home. And I confessed to him that his date was the most nerve-wracking of the four because I felt that his family was the one I wanted to impress the most. I think that shows a lot to how I'm feeling about Charlie without me expressing it openly. We talked about how he's very expressive and how he's waiting to feel things back from me, and he understand my walls, and he's taking it slowly, but I needed him to know that I'm one hundred percent right there with him. Charlie went on to give me a card, and in the card he said that I probably kissed a lot of frogs along the way, but he hopes that I find my Prince Charming at the end of this road. And my gift was a little silver frog with a little gold crown on top of it, so, it's just a memento of his thought and his hopes that I do find my Prince Charming. I was completely surprised by all the guys' gifts tonight. They really thought out each gift. Every person thought it out and wanted to give me something very unique and special. And if I had had just one of those presents in a lifetime, it would've been enough, but to have four of them on one night, by four different, great guys was very, very touching.

    • The Bachelorette's Diary Before I started this whole process, I figured that one guy would be pretty much yelling at me, screaming that he was "The One," in my subconscious, and there are actually two. It's a crazy but it's real, and it's very scary, and I'm hoping and praying that my family is going to be able to shed some light on who I would be best fit with. but I hate making decisions, I've always hated making decisions, and this is the biggest decision of my entire life, more than getting married to one person, getting engaged to one person, it's deciding what person to be with. And I think that even though my family will be helpful in getting me information that I don't already have on Ryan and Charlie, I think that they're probably going to say that it's up to me, and that is very, very, scary, because I think I'll still be feeling the way that I'm feeling about both of them. My mind is telling me that I need to focus on each person, each day, in its own respect, let things happen as they will, and be quiet with my thoughts and let my gut talk to me. Let my heart talk to me. And I think that with the silence, maybe I'll be able to understand who is my Prince Charming. But at the same time my heart is telling me that both of them would be great to be with. I can see myself with both of them. I can see my heart being happy with both Ryan and Charlie… You know, on the dates, on the overnight dates, it was hard for me not to think about Ryan, but I don't know if that's because he had the first date, so the fact that Charlie's going to be the first on St. Louis I think may be a point of decision making in that, if I'm thinking about Charlie while I'm with Ryan, then I know that maybe the order has something to do with the strength of my feelings. The fact that Ryan and Charlie are so inherently different is a scary thing, because I think it makes my decision that much harder. If they were very much the same, if they were similar in personality and lifestyle and everything, then it would make my decision a lot easier, because I could just say "ok, well I'll pick one, and it will be alright, because they're both the same." So, I think that I need to think about how my life will be with Ryan and Charlie, because I think my life will be very different with both of them.
