Accent Pieces

Episode 5:'s Assistant Editor was just as enamored with Mark's accent as Courtney.

This week we learned many things, but if you read no further than this sentence, let me sum up the main points for you: Accents? Sexy! Soul patches? Not sexy!

For those seeking further Dallas dating wisdom, by all means, read on! You know you want to...

DO: Use chivalry to get out of a sticky situation

Jealousy is not a good color on Matt, as proved by him whisking Neill out of the DIFFA event and making multiple passive aggressive remarks about her "doing her thing" with Glenn. It looked like the only thing she was doing was getting her groove on (and who wouldn't in that intensely tasseled gown), but it seems like Neill learned the hard way never to play a player (especially with one of his buddies). 

However, Matt managed to at least partially make up for his behavior by offering to drive Neill home, apologizing, and opening her door for her. Nothing like a little good old fashioned gentlemanly charm to get you out of the doghouse.

DON'T: Let your feelings "marinade"

Courtney felt completely blindsided by Drew's outburst, leaving her to lament all of Drew's unspoken feelings about her that he's let "marinade." In order to deal with Drew's (at this point) deeply flavored frustrations, Courtney proposes lunch, which ends peacefully enough. I think Tara's right, they're so similar that they'll either love each other or hate each other. Let's just hope next time the marinade isn't so bitter.

DO: Steal dogs if they're in dangerous situations

Yes, breaking and entering may be a felony. Yes, Tara and Drew very well could have gone to jail. But what judge after seeing the footage of that poor dog being freed from such a terrible situation could possibly find you guilty of anything other than being a wonderful person? 

DO: Have an accent

I think Courtney may have pointed out the sexiness of Mark's South African accent roughly five hundred times. And honestly, I agree. I would have jumped on that bull too if Mark had asked me. 

And is it just me or is South Africa full of sexy hunks? Exhibit A: Ross Cassidy of Million Dollar Decorators.

DON'T: Have a soul patch

Just don't.

DON'T: Make a "that's what she said" joke if you don't know how to do it properly

I love Glenn. I also love a good "that's what she said" joke. But clearly the two do not mix. I hate to break it to you, Glenn, but, "I like making big ones," does not lend itself to being followed by, "That's what she said." It really, really doesn't.

DO: Be mysterious 

Matt seems to be falling under Neill's spell (which we're pretty sure we casts via her smile). The thing that's really piquing his interest about her? Mystery. Matt can't get enough of "unwrapping" her layers and finding little fun facts. Like how she used to hunt as a child and stored her cash in the mouth of her trophy animals. If that doesn't say sexy, I don't know what does. 

And next week it looks like things are getting serious between Matt and Neill. Needless to say, Courtney is not exactly thrilled.

A Beautiful Gas Station Dinner

Tara shares her thoughts on the dinner suprise and dishes on the Jody situation.

Well this is it! What a crazy, wonderful experience it's been. So many people from across the country have reached out to me with their rescue stories, and I couldn't be happier. That has truly been the highlight of Most Eligible Dallas for me. 

So here are my thoughts about this season's finale.

Ah, nothing spells romance like a beautiful gas station dinner, complete with the subtle mood lighting and constant buzzing noise from the neon Bud Light sign…ugh. After seeing my horrified expressions, you could probably guess that I'm not exactly accustomed to spending my Saturday nights in gas station.  Now, if we're "road-tripping" it, then I'm all in because I'd be in jeans and a baseball cap and dressed for the occasion…but not date night, come on!
Am I high maintenance?  Maybe a little, but I don't think I was out of line. I never would have imagined having a real date in the same place where I could fill up the tank and get a flat fixed.  Note to future boyfriends: please no surprises without telling me the proper dress code!

Now we can all let out a collective sigh…Matt and Courtney. Finally! All I can say is what took so long? I am so happy they finally took the first step toward a relationship. And how amazing was that kiss?  I have to admit, I may have done a little happy dance when I saw it. I love them both so much and I'm keeping my fingers crossed. If you've read my blog, then you know that Drew has a special place in my heart, and when his heart breaks, so does mine. I love you, Drew, but sometimes I just want to slap you. What were you thinking? I saw how hurt Cody was at dinner. The next time you're in love, I am going to keep you on a tight leash! So this is how it ends, Jody and I are no longer together. I jumped in with my whole heart, but I wouldn't have done it any other way.  Lesson learned -- invest in a background check! But to Jody's credit, he has been separated for two years. So I am single again…anyone know any great guys?
