Bachelorette Rachel Week 4

My Monday night last week was so empty! Here are my thoughts after the hiatus.

  • I mean I get Eric being mad, but I also think that he is being a little dramatic about how he is confronting the other men.
  • Lee is definitely an instigator! He just seems to be a little slimy.
  • Oh no Dean…don’t get pulled into the Lee drama.
  • Bryan is charming.
  • Chris Harrison- “I can facilitate anything.” He really has a fun job where he doesn’t really do much but does everything at the same time.
  • When Rachel walks out to hand out roses, they all look like they have their tails between their legs.
  • Tickle monster stays???
  • Diggy is out and Lee is in? Is this part of the producer magic? Just why? And she is putting him on blast on social media, so there has got to be something coming.
  • Yes South Carolina!
  • I predict, Kenny and Lee will be on a 2 on one.
  • Riding in a blimp would be pretty cool. They were super cute up there.
  • Why are they all clapping for Jack getting the 1:1? Then Lee’s comments about the one one one. Why would he say that?
  • I miss the south and their trees!
  • Why is 25 too young to get married? Tom and I met at 22, and got married at 26.
  • Whew, I am glad the age didn’t get in her way. I am glad Dean opened up.
  • It would be so awkward to dance in front everyone like they did at that concert. I felt a little weird dancing at our wedding with all those eyes on you.
  • Look at all those phones recording them dancing. Nothing is sacred any more.
  • Nothing says trouble like a group of men vying for one girl all stuck on a boat.
  • A push-up contest? Josiah seems to be really full of himself. I am liking him a little less after this date.
  • BHAHAHAHA. They all look terrified to do the spelling bee. This seems like a horrible dream.
  • I love that they picked out three young ladies to “judge” the spelling bee. #girlpower
  • Eric went way off with facade. That was awful! That was the worst one.
  • Ok Josiah, just because you could spell a couple words doesn’t mean that you are the smartest one. And this conversation with the trophy is weird.
  • Peter seems to be hesitant about moving to Texas, and she seems more open to moving to Wisconsin.
  • Iggy do you have a good relationship with anyone? You and Lee both like to stir the pot.
  • WHAT? Iggy you are making stuff up, unless they are not showing parts of Rachel’s words. She did not ask specifically about tension with Josiah.
  • Eric handled that well talking about the energy of the room shifting. Amen.
  • Oh my goodness. These men are horrible gossipers. Lee is gross and an instigator.
  • Lee, why are you surprised that Kenny is confronting you with your ridiculousness?

My favorites:  Will, Peter, and Dean.

Bachelorette Rachel Week 3

And we finish out the “To Be Continued.”

Here are my thoughts for this week:

  • Demario is a cocky piece. “When I met you, my entire life changed.” Of course it did, you are on national television.
  • Rachel is giving it to him. She is not having any of his crap. She is looking for a man not a boy. Boom. I love her. Your time is not now Demario.
  • “He had nothing new to contribute besides begging.” Pretty much.
  • I hope the men take her seriously from now on. I love that she was strong about her convictions and didn’t let him sweet talk her.
  • So how did the Tickle Monster get those hands there? Don’t they only get one suitcase?
  • Lucas and Blake. They both need to go. I can’t do this bro drama.
  • Blake doesn’t eat carbs?
  • You both (Blake and Lucas) are trying to make each other look bad. You are both bitter and being crazy.
  • Tom called Lucas a scum bag.
  • Fred gets another week! Maybe she will get over the past behavior.
  • I bet Lucas goes to Paradise….gross. Speaking of…this cast list dropped this week.
  • Blake, buddy, you put yourself in the same category of that drama. Plus you can’t put yourself in the nice gentleman category when your first interview was about your sexual prowess.
  • I wish y’all could hear Tom’s reaction to this fight…I’m dying.
  • This started with straight shit talking then went to two grown men mocking each other with fart noises.
  • I think the Bachelorette seasons have more drama than the Bachelor seasons. Men try to act like they aren’t dramatic but they are just so silly.
  • YES TO ELLEN! I already saw the episode, but this is cool to see the backstory.
  • I don’t like that he called Rachel “sloppy seconds.” I hope she says something about that.
  • Alex is going at it with this dancing.
  • This is probably the one segment (strip dancing) of the Ellen show that I don’t like. I think it is a double standard of exploitation. No one would think this was ok if women were half naked strip dancing…
  • Never Have I Ever though…great game.
  • This has got to be weird to have them all talk about how many guys have kissed her.
  • Why is it awkward that Fred asked you to kiss him? People should get consent.
  • She is sending Fred home…She can’t get past him being a school kids.
  • Fred is going to be broken. You can just see it in his eyes that he is devastated.
  • Why did she take the rose with her to break up with Fred? That is like taunting him.
  • They are taking their horses into the stores? Is that real?
  • A CUPCAKE ATM???? WHY AREN’T THESE IN MISSOURI???
  • Why do they have to blur out the horse poop?
  • Anthony seems sweet and old school classy.
  • Tom thinks that Eric is stoned when he goes off on Iggy.
  • These men on this second group date…there are some I don’t feel like I have seen before.
  • This date in the party bus feels like a bachelorette party with all these women back.
  • Mud wrestling? Sometimes these shows are so sexist…
  • Well Rachel wanted to see all of them without their shirts on.
  • Kenny didn’t go easy on any of these people. He threw those men around. I thought he was going to break Lee. But seriously, Bryce won?
  • Wow Kenny used to be a Chippendale?
  • Rachel is not subtle at all. She tells everyone everything. Eric is going to blow his lid.
  • This conversation between Lee and Eric is interesting. Lee seems to be just saying whatever to be friends.
  • Everyone is coming at Eric.
  • I love Rachel’s formal coat. It is gorgeous. Her stylist really outdid themselves!
  • Man Rachel is not going to cut corners. I love how she is so blunt and forward.
  • Ugh I hate that they don’t do the rose ceremony at the end. I know we are continuing into next week, but at least give me some closure for this week.

My favorites:  Will and Dean.

And because I love the interviews I find on the Bachelor gossip, I wanted to share with you a couple.

 

 

 

Bachelorette Rachel Week 2

Now we are on to the real dates. Here are my thoughts for this week.

  • Oh I love Ashton and Mila are helping and are huge fans of the show. That’s awesome that they called the producers to be involved.
  • I would not let any of these men near my baby with how they are handling these fake babies.
  • Lucas is drowning his baby. How does that not disqualify him?
  • Ashton’s reaction to the Waboom was priceless.
  • So Blake now knows Lucas from before? I feel like he cannot focus on anything but Lucas.
  • I feel bad for Fred. She is just always going to come back to the camp thing.
  • Rachel just looks bored on this group date.
  • Lucas just sounds like he is drunk all the time. He slurs his speech, and he is just acting silly the whole time.
  • Dean. Oh Dean. Hubba hubba.
  • Kenny’s reaction to Lucas and Blake going at it-bahahaha. These men are definitely being ridiculous.
  • That kiss with Dean was so sweet. She looks so giddy.
  • I love that she brought her dog, Copper. That is definitely important to see if the dog likes the partner and vice versa.
  • This Barkfest looks like so much fun. This is a great date idea, like something that couples would actually do in real life. We could never bring our dogs to that though.
  • I love that Peter’s dad started watching the show to get to know Rachel.
  • I also love that Peter and Rachel are talking about therapy. Normalize counseling!
  • Peter and Rachel are so cute together. He seems super calm and would be a good balance for her.
  • I would forget about Rachel when Kareem walked out.
  • This basketball date is my kind of date!
  • Yes Demario is cocky.
  • It’s always funny to watch how men react on these sports dates. It’s like they have to prove their manhood more on these type of dates.
  • Oh this is the girlfriend off the show episode.
  • Demario is going to act like he doesn’t know Lexi…of course. Playah.
  • I think both Demario and Lexi are lying a little bit. Neither of them are making sense.
  • Keep it real Rachel. Get him out. You don’t need a man like that anyway.
  • Rachel is killing it in these dresses. She is looking so classy with these faux fur jackets.
  • Man Demario is ballsy for coming back.
  • Ugh I hate the “to be continued.”

My favorites:  Will, Josiah, Peter, and Dean.

Bachelorette Rachel Week 1

Yay my trash TV is back! Who is excited about Rachel being the one? Me.

It will be interesting to see how this season pans out since she has been put on this perfect pedestal.

I know tonight is the second week’s episode, but here are my thoughts on the first week.

  • Haha I love that she referenced “Clueless.”
  • I just spit out my drink when the granny said don’t sleep with any of them. Good advice!
  • I can’t wait to see the wardrobe they put her in. She is gorgeous!
  • I like Alex. Watching him with his mom during his bio was adorable.
  • They really upped their game in casting. They seem to all have real jobs.
  • Never mind…Waboom guy? Aspiring drummer?
  • Blake E is just going to talk about his penis. Awesome.
  • Diggy has 500 pairs of sneakers? Daphne can compete with that with the amount of moccassins I sorted yesterday…Also his dog is ADORABLE!
  • Josiah’s story…I’m weeping. I hope that he is the real deal.
  • Hmmm. It is interesting the women she had come back to give her a pep talk.
  • They gave her some really good advice.
  • I love Josiah’s suit. Snazzy!
  • There seems to be quite a few lawyers.
  • Demario is super confident…not sure how I feel about it.
  • Yes a marching band! Ohhh it’s the penis dude.
  • Fred is from her past. “He was a very bad kid!” That is crazy he had the yearbook.
  • Tickle Monster? Ok I guess they had to have some wild cards for the job titles.
  • What is with the Adam Jr. doll? So creepy.
  • So Rachel was Fred’s camp counselor. That does have to be hard to get past that experience of disciplining him.
  • Wow Bryan went in for the kill on the kiss!
  • Why did you get a $2000 suit for this? That is a lot of money?
  • These men are so hovering…
  • Blake is already challenging other men. I mean I would question Waboom guy too.
  • Oh I had high hopes for Mohit, but he got silly drunk.
  • I don’t trust Demario.
  • Really? You picked Lucas? I would like to hear the justification on that one.

My favorites:  Josiah, Alex and Bryan

 

Bachelorette JoJo Finale

The finale was this week. I wasn’t really into it, but when you put in this much time you have to see it to the end.

  • JoJo admitting loving both. It is a bit concerning that she thinks about the other guy with each one. So is that really love?
  • Her mom has a really good point about both of JoJo and Jordan being the center of attention and them being too alike.
  • Jordan said “me” a lot and not in the right way grammatically.
  • Why do we still put so much emphasis on asking for permission to marry the girl? While it is nice in theory to feel like you have their blessing, but why isn’t it both ways with the woman being expected to do the same with the in-laws? I say that, and I didn’t ask Tom’s family…
  • Do you think they pick out the gifts for the families on their own? How real is that part?
  • Wait Robbie, you wanted to marry her on your first date? How is that real?
  • There was not as much emphasis on the brothers this time as with Ben. And still nothing from her sister…
  • When Robbie and JoJo were talking about being in love, you could see the skeptisism on her family’s faces.
  • I think her family is spot on with Jordan being a good NYE date.
  • Robbie’s speech to JoJo’s parents was very sweet.
  • I still think she is going to pick Jordan because the heart and lust sometimes get confused.
  • JoJo gets her bluntness questioning honestly. Her family is so straightforward.
  • JoJo’s sister is just there for a free ride. She has said nothing…
  • Robbie is so forward. They are cute, but there is something that is just dinging that something fake here.
  • That boat with Jordan…That seems so romantic and special.
  • Jordan seems to talk football announcer play by play when he is doing his interviews..
  • I do think Jordan has a point that it wasn’t right to ask JoJo’s parents when he doesn’t actually know how she feels. This is so weird.
  • Why is she pushing so hard for Jordan when she has all these doubts?
  • JoJo reading Jordan’s letter…I don’t know how to read her.
  • I thought she was going to pick Robbie before Jordan’s letter now.
  • Um they both have really nice handwriting.
  • I have NO IDEA WHAT SHE IS GOING TO DO!
  • Well part of this process is that someone has to feel the pain. Remember you last season?
  • AHHHH Robbie is first!
  • Why do they let them talk first…she needs to stop Robbie.
  • She has said that to everyone that she wanted it to be them…Luke, Chase, Robbie…
  • It has been Jordan since day one, and we all know it.
  • Robbie was a gentlemen wishing her happiness and good luck.
  • No telling him you loved him does not help!
  • I do love watching proposals. Somebody get proposed in front of me please!
  • Well I wish the best for them and apparently they are moving in together but they have some hurdles to overcome.

 Did you watch the finale? What do you think of this season?
