Bachelorette Rachel Week 5

The showdown continues. Two nights this week-so much drama to analyze.

  • Lee is acting like he doesn’t know why Kenny is confronting him. No one is buying your crap.
  • I cannot watch Bryan and Rachel kiss. It’s gross. I like him, but how they kiss is just too much.
  • Lee is trying to provoke Kenny. He is so slimy. You can tell he is just trying to aggravate him.
  • I wonder if the transitions are as awkward in real life as they make it out with what the produce.
  • Lee is admitted that he is just there to mess with everybody.
  • Jack Stone..Jack Stone. He just seems silly awkward.
  • Oh Shagging! One of my regrets from grad school is not taking Shag lessons.
  • She is going to dump Jack. And he doesn’t have a clue…
  • Lee is really ignorant. He is playing a game, and it is sickening.
  • Jack seems like a guy who is living in rainbows and sunshine, who is always happy and doesn’t see the bad side of life. Which I find interesting since he is a lawyer.
  • Holy Moly that black dress is stunning on her. I just can’t get over how beautiful she is.
  • They didn’t show the men’s reaction to Jack leaving like they normally do when someone leaves on a date. That means that he was not really entwined in the house dynamics.
  • Lee, you don’t like conflict? You are stirring the pot and making comments about you being there to mess with people. How is playing this game not conflict?
  • Sparks are going to fly on this date with Bryan.
  • I wonder if people notice them when they are in other countries. I mean there are cameras, but are they celebrities like they are here in the states?
  • They are obviously going to grow closer doing this repelling thing.
  • She is going to scare herself out of liking Bryan.
  • Anthony is very insightful with his conversation with Eric. It is about the trust.
  • Wow Bryan is throwing the L word out there. They have been there for only a month and spent maybe an hour together? Super fast!
  • Why is Dean wearing a cup on the outside of his outfit? And why are they in wrestler uniforms when the professional hand-ballers were in short sleeve shirts?
  • So do they allow the parents to talk to their kids? I don’t feel like we have seen that before that much. I thought they couldn’t have phones.
  • Lee is a douche. Lifting weights and writing toasts? Toasts for what? I don’t imagine you are invited to very many parties.
  • Josiah seems like another smooth talker. He doesn’t even let her finish a sentence before butter is coming out of his mouth.
  • How is her hair perfect after being in the hot tub with Peter. I would look like a frizzball!
  • Peter don’t worry and get in your head! Group date roses generally go to poeple who need validation. She was just making out with you in the hot tub, and after your conversation obviously she is into you.
  • What is Lee talking about? Unless there is a lot that the show is withholding, he is making up stories about Kenny’s dark side. Why doesn’t Rachel just ask the producers what happened?
  • Josiah-“No one in this house saw me leaving.” Rachel-“I did.”
  • NOOOO! I liked Anthony!
  • I like that Eric asked real questions. They don’t show that enough that they are actually talking about real life. He is super nerdy though, trying to act all cool. I don’t feel like he really went in depth about his past. It all seemed buszzwordy and surface level.
  • Tom and Morton. I love them.
  • I feel like a lot of these guys are just saying what they think she wants to hear.
  • I think Matt is in the friendzone.
  • Kenny needed to go home. Bye boo.
  • Why are the leads always surprised how emotional this process is?
  • Oh Will…this date is painfully awkward.
  • If you can’t be romantic at a castle, where can you?
  • I am sad to see Will go, but you could tell there was nothing happening between them.
  • Either Matt or Adam are going home at the end of the rose ceremony.
  • Huh. I did not think that Alex was in jeopardy at all.
  • On to another week!

My favorites: Peter and Dean.

Bachelorette JoJo Week 1 Thoughts

I love my Monday nights! Going from Dancing with the Stars to the Bachelorette-so good.

Let’s get to watching reality TV!

Here were my thoughts from this week’s episode of the Bachelorette.

  • I loved having the former bachelorettes back. They were so chill and gave really good advice. Also I love seeing Dez and Ali pregnant!
  • Everyone is so punny on the first night. “Mojo for Jojo, Be my first round draft pick. She can light my fire…”
  • Aaron Rodgers’s brother! Yowza!
  • Bachelor Superfan is a job? Where can I get paid for this?
  • Daniel, from Canada, seems like a skeevy perve.
  • Santa was a little weird and too gimmicky.
  • Hipster is a job? What is happening?
  • All 4 One!?!?!?! What the heck Wells?
  • Luke getting a “unicorn” was adorable, and he is from Texas. I think that will be a draw for JoJo
  • The kiss with Jordan gave me goose bumps.
  • Chad just wants to talk smack on everyone and seems very full of himself. He seems like bad news from the previews too.
  • I am sorry, but since when is your nationality a profession? Why do their jobs bother me so much?
  • The guys got obnoxious really fast. Have you not learned from other seasons? Do better with your alcohol intake! There is always that one guy that jumps in the pool.
  • I actually vomited when Jake Pvelka came out. Then they are family friends? Ok he redeemed himself by actually giving her good advice.
  • WHY DANIEL!!!?!?!?! My jaw dropped to the floor when she called his name…
  • If I was on this…I would have passed out in a corner somewhere not because I was drunk but because of physical exhaustion. I never made it through the night at sleep overs.
  • She makes out with a lot of dudes from what the previews show, but there doesn’t seem to be as much crying. Apparently there is a lot of blood though.
  • I am interested to see if she falls for more than one person and how she will handle that with what had happened to her with Ben.
  • BachelorNation thought-I am going to say it here, but I think Caila will be on Bachelor in Paradise. While I am excited about JoJo, I think that Caila got the raw end of the deal.

 I think this season will be extra fun to watch because the radio show I listen to in the morning is based out of Dallas. One of the DJs knows JoJo in real life, and another person behind the scenes has watch parties with people that JoJo went to college with. So I feel like I will get some great perspective with their recaps on Tuesdays. They say that she is really down to earth and super sweet. They claimed that she will be a “good” Bachelorette because she will be in tune to everyone’s feelings and be classy about the process.

We shall see!

My top picks as of the first night are:  Jordan, James Taylor, Christian, and Luke.

Did you watch the premiere with JoJo as the Bachelorette? If not you should at least watch this…
