I feel like so much hype has been put into the fantasy suite episode. Here are my thoughts
Nick is so confused about Andi’s presence.
This conversation might call for some whiskey? What is happening?
Rachel’s green dress is a dream. That is a phenomenal color on her.
I think Andi is just here to chat and plump up her endorsement career, whatever that is.
Andi telling him to have intimate time if it feels right is interesting after how things went down on their After the Rose. I do think that she was right about him not letting that taint his experience now.
I think either Corinne or Rachel are going home.
I think my heart about stopped waiting for him to call Vanessa’s name.
Corinne’s cry seemed very forced.
Nick was very sweet and tender with his break up to Corinne.
Corinne, when did you ever kiss up to a man?
And in true Corinne fashion, she fell asleep in the limo.
I am so confused…Am I not remembering it correctly? Didn’t Raven say she was falling in love with him at the haunted house date? Why does she keep saying she hasn’t said I love you to anyone?
I think Nick is in love with Raven.
“I own a clothing store-I fold clothes all day.” Touche. Also did he forget that about her?
I really hate that the fantasy suite implies that you have to have sex. Raven, don’t make that decision unless you feel ready all that it means (good and bad). This seems to be pressure for them to have that experience even if in the “real world” that wouldn’t be a choice they would make at that time of the relationship. I don’t like it at all.
Raven telling Nick that she loves him was like a romcom script. It was really beautiful. And Nick’s reaction definitely makes me think even more that he is in love with her too.
Wait, they are only showing one fantasy suite this week? I need these producers to get it together.
What is Nick doing? He is no viking. And if he was really working out in the snow, why is he wearing jeans STILL?
Nick does not play by the traditional Bachelor rules.
WE ARE GOING TO MEET RAQUEL!
Raven, you already told Nick that you were in love with him.
Yea I don’t think you ever quite know what you are getting with Raven.
What a special moment that Nick got to be a part of Raven’s dad telling her he is cancer free. Tear alert.
That was such an awkward goodbye between Raven and Nick.
What moment Raven? You have already said I love you.
Nick does not look comfortable in that church initially.
Nick said “I grew up in church,” but he doesn’t seem to mean that he goes now. However, I think that what he said about wanting to grow with Rachel on faith seems genuine. But I can’t get over the fact that she is the next Bachelorette. What happens?
Rachel’s family is bringing the fire.
They seem like they are really fun.
I think the producers rigged Corinne staying on so we could all experience Corinne’s hometown.
Shopping where there is champagne?
I could not imagine spending $3000 on one outfit. I didn’t even spend that much on my wedding dress.
Corinne saying “I love you” was sweet.
I want those olives.
I mean I kind of love Raquel too.
Corinne could not think of what Nick’s job would be. Shouldn’t this be something they talk about?
I loved watching Vanessa with her classroom. It made me really miss my time with Special Olympics.
I really appreciate that Vanessa is showing what it means to have divorced family. Having to split your time is hard for others to get used to. It is still hard for us sometimes.
I agree that Nick and Vanessa should have the conversation about what life would be after the Bachelor. How have none of them had this conversation?
Vanessa’s family is intense and so very protective.
Vanessa’s brother was so sweet.
Ha I love dads. How are you respecting my daughter when you are dating 3 other women?
So did Nick only ask Raven and Vanessa’s dads for their blessings? Did I miss him asking Rachel and Corinne’s family?
I think Vanessa’s family is going to scare Nick away.
Do these women really forget that this is a competition and there are other women involved?
Vanessa isn’t going to say anything about her feelings?
This season is the worst at cliff hangers. WHYYYYY?
Andy is the one who knocked on the door? WHAT DOES SHE WANT?
Favorites: Vanessa, but now I am thinking Raven may win.
I had full intentions of writing other posts this week so that my Bachelor posts weren’t back to back, but alas life.
Anyway, this week I got to watch the Bachelor in a hotel room with Moe’s as my cuisine. Bring on the queso and drama. Also I think this brought my obsession of this show to an all time high (or low) with watching it alone in a hotel room…
Nick you have to keep doing this. There is so much doubt, why not just finish this and see where you end up. You will never get this opportunity again.
Where is Bimini?
Vanessa is going scuba diving. Air and Sea dates.
Everyone looks pissed at Vanessa.
Vanessa has a lot more depth than you have shown Corinne. All you can say is I have a nanny and you run a multi-millionaire dollar business.
Okay they are just going snorkeling, but I was close!
Of course that feels like love when you are in a romantic setting like that snorkeling…it’s called the fantasy affect.
Nick is just spinning words to Vanessa. You can tell she is just torn.
That is so awkward that Nick was touching Kristina’s inner thigh in front of the other women.
Swimming with sharks…Are they toothless? Really Corinne?
Raven seems to be in the background of this date.
I am pretty fearless when it comes to ocean stuff, but I don’t know if I would freely swim with sharks.
Raven would just beat a shark with her stilettos.
That was sweet that Nick was comforting Kristina.
Kristina gets the group rose.
Oh wow! I was not expecting Raven getting that rose.
I think Danielle would mellow Nick out, but I also think that she may not be able to call him out on his crap.
That basketball hoop is short.
Danielle is going home on this date…
I like Danielle, but I think she is a little dry for this.
Nick’s facial expressions are so telling.
I hate it when the woman says they aren’t great enough when they are getting dumped. I mean I get it, I have been there, but we should think higher of ourselves. This just wasn’t right for either of you.
Where was Vanessa in the goodbye to Danielle? Aren’t they besties in this?
Corinne sneaking off to seduce Nick.
Nick acts differently around Corinne than he does with the other girls. It seems like it is drunk college flirting.
Nick is saying NO to the platinum vagine! Maybe he is learning from his past mistakes.
Corinne your idea of cute and nice is just sex. There are so many other ways to show nice affection besides throwing your body at someone. No wonder she is so self-conscious. We have to be teaching women differently about how to respect themselves.
All she is doing is making me think about how to raise my daughter.
Seriously where is Vanessa?
Nick is terrified of Rachel’s dad and family.
I love the bartenders that the Bachelor people find.
Corinne is going off the rails.
NOOOOO not Kristina! I could have sworn there was more there.
Kristina, you do deserve better than Nick.
I think Jen is the mystery woman coming back from BIP.
Favorites: Vanessa and Rachel (Although I know she doesn’t end up with Nick because she was prematurely announced as the next Bachelorette. I am excited for her! But I am mad at ABC for doing it before she left this season.)
This week I have no words and all the words. This show is absurd, and these tweets say it all.
Here it goes anyway.
“Open your eyeballs” Nick.
Watching Corinne’s reaction while Taylor was talking to Nick was great.
Did Nick not hear anything that Taylor said about Corinne? What potential do you see?
I think Corinne is always having her own personal cocktail hour.
I am ok with everyone he sent home.
I think Jaimi will be on Paradise, and maybe Alexis too.
Oh the Virgin Islands. I went to the British Virgin Islands when I was in high school, and I want to go back so badly!
Why are they screaming out the balcony at Nick’s plane? He cannot hear you.
Kristina is gorgeous.
How is Corinne able to function taking care of other human beings?
I don’t even know what to say about Kristina. No wonder she is a more quiet person in attempts to shield herself, that is a lot to live through.
I would not want to play volleyball in a bikini
Wow they all got dramatic about this volleyball game and competing for time.
YOU ALL SIGNED UP FOR THIS: for a reality competition on love….This cryfest is silly.
This show makes people get ridiculous.
Jazmine, you are still there so you are getting reassurance. She won’t stop talking.
She is losing it as she is talking with Nick.
No surprise that he is sending her home. Why would she do the “chokie?”
Did I miss him giving Raven the rose at the group date?
This is an interesting 2 on 1 date. I think they both go home. Whitney is going for sure. I didn’t even know her name until this episode.
I can respect that Nick tries to keep every rejection between him and the woman.
They really like leaving women stranded on beaches.
Why is Whitney now bashing Danielle? Weren’t they friends before that?
No that wasn’t a great first date, Danielle. It was a tour of all Nick’s past relationships.
Danielle, you aren’t on the same page. The music tells it all.
I knew he was sending them both home.
Nick is in his head.
He can’t keep doing this??? What does that even mean? You are the one that keeps coming back to this ridiculous show! I’m going to need you to pull it together and not sound like you are drunk every time you open your mouth.
Favorites: Rachel and Vanessa
These recap chats have become almost better than the show itself. Melissa Rycroft is one of my favorite contestants!
