After another two-hour episode, Ali Fedotowsky sent three more guys home last night on The Bachelorette.

*SPOILER ALERT* Stop reading now, if you don't want to know who they are.

The first one-on-one date went to Frank, who I'm still rooting for despite whatever spoilers may have seeped into my sight. (I'm going episode by episode). They had a great date in Hollywood complete with a breakdown on the freeway, snuggling at the famous Hollywood sign, and some kissing.

She told him he's "funny, smart, and quirky" and that there's "nothing normal about you," which she meant in the best possible way. There was definitely some chemistry there.

Next up was a beach photo shoot with 12 of the remaining guys for a charity calendar. Some of the bathing suits were tiny to say the least. Most of the guys were good sports about sporting the "banana hammocks," but Jonathan, aka The Weatherman, whined and whimpered about it ... just like he did about Craig M. most of the episode.

So Craig M. is a cocky jerk, yes, but he's also kinda hot in that bad boy way. Regardless of my little attraction to him, he's not the man for Ali and didn't try much to convince her otherwise. But the effect he has on poor Weatherman is laughable. Weatherman gets so worked up by Craig M.'s teasing that you can see his blood pressure rise right there on the screen.

And like a little tattletale, he runs and tells Ali that Craig M. is "dangerous."

Dangerous? Well, maybe if you get so worked up about his teasing that you have a stroke, but otherwise, he just has a big mouth.

Ali ends up letting Craig M. go, which is fine, but what I can't fathom is why she kept The Weatherman. He makes my skin crawl with all his weasely, cheesy ways. I'd have much rather had Craig M. around to keep things interesting.

Also sent packing were Tyler V. and Chris H. -- neither of whom seemed to hold much interest for Ali or the rest of us watching.

My other predicted front runners -- Roberto, Chris L., and Hunter remain, but I'd say Ty, with his guitar playing and soul bearing, is coming up strong and fast.

What did you think of The Bachelorette this week?
