After a rousing week of Hurricane Sandy destruction in Jersey, Desiree's 11 remaining dude-bros are off to their first international destination: Munich, Germany.

After just two and a half short months -- an appropriate amount of time to recover from Sean Lowe's excessive shirtlessness -- "The Bachelorette" is back. Desiree Hartsock has graduated from "Bachelor" dumpee to the main woman, ready to go on a journey to find true love by sorting through 25 (mostly bizarre) gentlemen.

This week on "The Bachelorette," a.k.a. Emily's journey to find a baby step-daddy, the men came to tell all. And they did ... for about half of the show. The other half was spent plugging the franchise's drunk uncle, "Bachelor Pad."

"I'm on a boat! I'm on a boat! Everybody look at me 'cause I'm sailin' on a boat" is what I imagine Emily Maynard was thinking as we began our journey on episode nine of "The Bachelorette."

On this week's episode of "The Bachelorette," Emily went on a whirlwind tour of Bachelor-town, USA, and glimpsed into highly-produced family lives of her final four suitors.

This week, Emily Maynard (minus one little Ricki) and her bevy of muscled misfits traveled to Dubrovnik and donned some serious kilts. The sixth episode of "The Bachelorette" was obviously sponsored (in part) by Croatia's Tourism Council, which apparently has a whole lot less money than London -- and the PR team for Disney-Pixar's "Brave."

This week's episode of "The Bachelorette": brought to you by the London Tourism Board and butchered Shakespeare! Yes, that's right, Emily & Co.'s most recent adventures took place in merry old England -- as we were helpfully reminded every 2.5 seconds.

This week's episode of "The Bachelorette" confirmed once and for all what we all already knew: Ryan Bowers is the absolute worst. And as fame-hungry "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" contestants go -- it takes a lot to stand out in a bad way.

This week's "Bachelorette" included a surprise visit from Dolly Parton, some excellent reminders that we're still in Charlotte, North Carolina, and proved once and for all that reality television involving children is a lot less fun to guilty-pleasure watch.

After sitting through all two hours -- which felt more like two years -- of The Bachelorette's second episode I officially agree with Erin Gloria Ryan of Jezebel: the show is "racist against interesting people."
