Bo: Well, Cilla, I am a 42 year old bachelor, I own a large farm, and.... I'm incredibly wealthy! C: And, I understand, correct me if I'm wrong love, that you have had a nasty experience involving a Valentine's card? Bo: That is correct, Cilla. I once received a Valentine's card through in the mail, and I had no idea who the sender was. I was a little afraid, you see, it could have been anything. So, I erm, placed it on my mantelpiece. Well, then I couldn't stop thinking of it, so I stared at it for quite some time. C: How long for, love? Bo: For a matter of days, Cilla. C: Oh dear.

C: Oh I didn't see that one coming. Now, what sort of thing are you looking for, and hoping to find tonight in one of our top-class bachelors?

C: Well, let's hope those three blokes over there stand up to you more than your farm animals do. And lets hope they smell better an all. B: well I won't know until the date, but lets hope so. C: Alright love. Let's get on with your three questions then. Fire away! B: Hello boys! ALL: Hello Bathsheba! B: Okay, my first question is; If I was an animal, I would be a tiger, because I could definitely use a little taming. If you were an animal, what would you be, and why? That goes to number 1, please. Bo: Well, Bathsheba, I would be a snake, a boa constrictor, so I would be able to wrap myself around you, and squeeze you as tight as I can. B: And to number 2, please. ...read more.

Or, will you decide on warm and simple number 3, and if on your date his sheepy antics get on your nerves, you could always sell that gold heart he gave you. THE DECISION - IS YOURS! C: So who will it be love - 1, 2 or 3? B: I'm going to have to go with number 3, Cilla. C: Oh, but what about the two you turned down? (introduces Troy, then Boldwood - they leave) C: So here is your Blind Date, you picked number one, that was Gabriel Oak from Weatherbury - come in Gabriel! (Gabriel and Bathsheba meet) C: Alright, are you pleased? (Both nod) Okay then, let's pick a date! Which one will be picking? O: I'll let the lovely lady here pick. (Bathsheba picks) B: A sightseeing trip to London! (Hands envelope to Cilla) C: It says here that the two of you will be seeing all the sights of the Famous London! Have either of you been there before? (both say no). Good. Then after that, you'll be shopping 'til you drop and then staying in a luxury hotel! It says here let's hope that the two of you aren't calling each other pigs by the end of the week! Okay, let's have a round of applause for Bathsheba and Gabriel! (they leave) ...read more.
