Welcome to my recap of Week 2 of the Bachelorette my BBs!!! We start out with Karl running his mouth to the tune of “this is a game/competition and I’m gonna win all the roses”. WHO pays this man to speak for a living???
The guys are all wearing SUPER tight pants this season. Is that in style now?? And here we go with the sex positive thing again! The guys are all led into a dark room with a red bra on the floor. They are told they are there to compete to see who is the World’s Greatest Lover! Mike the Virgin is shaking in his boots!!! He’s literally sweating and near tears as the guys are quizzed on their sexual knowledge by comedian Heather McDonald. The remaining guys who aren’t on the date make up the live audience for this date. Connor B sings a funny song, Karl talks and talks and talks (natch), but Virgin Mike wins by just pouring his little heart out to Katie in a loose poem. Even though Mike wins the contest, Thomas wins the group date rose and I have to believe it has something to do with all that tongue Thomas slipped Katie at the after party!
Katie drives up in a vintage red pickup truck to pick Greg up for their date and it turns out they are wearing matching outfits. They go on a camping/fishing date where Katie talks about her dad and how he took her fishing all the time. Her dad passed away in 2012. That night at Fake Dinner, Greg reveals that he lost his dad just 2 years ago, suddenly, from cancer. Normally it seems to fake when they get to Fake Dinner and instantly vomit out their past traumas to each other, but in this case it just feels natural. Greg and Katie seem really comfortable with each other right off the bat and it’s v cute.
Group Date #2
Tayshia and Kaitlyn wake all the guys up by banging on pots and pans and drag them out to a barn where the guys have to change into Cowboy clothes. Turns out they have to mud wrestle for Katie’s affections. I don’t understand these dates. She doesn’t get to talk to any of the guys! All of the matches are fairly friendly until it’s time for Aaron and Cody to wrestle. Aaron tells us that he knows Cody from outside the Bachelor bubble and that Cody is, say it with me, not here for the right reasons! Their match is INTENSE to say the least and I’m shocked a medic wasn’t called. Aaron wins the match and gets extra time with Katie. Katie asked Aaron what’s up with him and Cody and Aaron says Cody is here to be famous.
Katie asks to speak to Cody right off. She conveys her concerns and he stutters through a denial with zero emotion on his face. Then Cody pulls Aaron aside to chat and says “No one would know we know each other if you’d just keep your mouth shut” and that’s when Cody instantly turns into a serial killer in training. Katie then sends Cody home and again, no emotion from Cody. AT ALL. Serial killer.
Katie then takes a moment to herself. Andrew S comes to find her and they chat. They find out they have a lot in common due to their upbringings. Hunter creeps me out. No real reason why, just a vibe. Andrew S gets the group date rose.
Karl starts the party off by saying there are more men there for the wrong reasons. Then, even though he has no basis for this claim, he tells Katie there are multiple men there with bad intentions. He refuses to give examples or name names though. NOT V HELPFUL KARL!!!
Katie is understandably shaken by this news so she addresses the group and tells them to GTFO if they aren’t there for her. Katie then pulls Aaron aside for answers but he doesn’t have any because Karl made it all up! Karl admits to the guys it was he that got Katie all upset and the guys are PISSED at Karl!
Sidebar- who is Katie’s stylist??? I mean! She’s admittedly dressing better than she did on the Bachelor but this green lame’ dress she’s wearing for the cocktail party is hideous and a lot of her outfits this episode are definitely…a choice.
And that’s it for this week! We have to wait until next week for the rose ceremony. Until then! xo 🌹
