In all honesty, Zak on “The Bachelorette” has been one of the biggest surprises of this entire season so far to us. When we first met him, he just seemed like kind of a hokey guy that liked to wander with no clothes on. Now, he’s a sensitive, likable guy that likes to walk around with no clothes on. He’s went from being an oddball to potentially the Lindsay Yenter of the season: Someone who starts the show off with a questionable choice, but builds from there leading up to being someone that Desiree Hartsock could see herself with.
Well, Zak apparently wanted to give her some extra motivation to keep him around while the two were in Atlanta City this past week. In the deleted scene below, he decided to sneak out and pick up a ring for Desiree while she was out on her date with James Case, which is a pretty nice thing to do considering that the man has not even had a one-on-one date with her just yet. This entire segment just feels awkward, though, mostly from this little simple rule of reality TV: At this point in the season, you aren’t just allowed to “sneak out.” People are watching out like hawks to ensure that spoilers don’t get out, and everything is planned. We’d say that we’re destroying a part of TV magic here, but you probably knew this already.
Now, for a bit of irony: On the Hulu video below, we had an advertisement for “The Bling Ring.” Ring humor; we get it.
