Bachelor Week 4

We begin this episode with Chris Harrison (who knew he was still on this show?? He’s NEVER on air!) announcing to the ladies that they were traveling to…..Cleveland! Yayyyyy!!!!! Said no one! Seriously, they all looked at each other like he’d just said, well, Cleveland. I’m sure Cleveland is a great city but these girls were hoping to get their passports stamped! Clearly there are major budget cuts going on at ABC!

Victoria F gets the 1-1 date. Peter flies her to Cedar Point amusement park amid all her protestations of “I’m afraid of heights!” ABC has rented the park out for just the 2 of them. Then P is so excited because he knows VF loves country music and there’s a private concert with Chase Rice. I didn’t know who Chase Rice is before this episode and some Google diving, but apparently, according to VF- he’s her ex-boyfriend! WHOA!!!! And here’s P saying maybe Chase can sing at their wedding! BAHAHAHA!!! After the concert Chase and P are talking and Chase says he’s from Virginia “like Victoria” but P doesn’t put 2 and 2 together. Then VF goes and talks to Chase. Now she’s acting like they had a RELATIONSHIP but Chase is making it seem like it was a short term thing AT BEST. Turns out after some Googling that they spent 1 night together here in Charlotte. That doesn’t make Chase your ex, VF. That makes him your one night stand!

That night at Fake Dinner VF goes through all this dramatic hemming and hawing then finally tells P about Chase being her ex. P does not get it. He keeps saying things like “the guy on stage?” Get it together P!!! VF runs off crying (if it’s just a one off, why is she crying??) and P chases after her. She gets the rose, natch.

Group Date~

P brings 13 girls to the Browns football stadium to play football for his love. Winners get to go to an after party and losers go home. VP sits out because her back is hurting her (???) but I think it’s just so she can canoodle with P on the sidelines. This is one INTENSE football game. Deandra is throwing chicks to the ground!!! There are some athletes in this group! And then there’s HA who’s getting tossed around like a ragdoll!

The game ends in a tie so they all go to the after party. Tensions are running high because now they have to fight 12 other girls to get time with P. Shiann is talking with P when ALAYAH shows up! In Cleveland!!! How did she know where they are??? Does she have a tracker on P??? So Al interrupts Chiann (who is less than thrilled) and P just sits there stunned. Al tells P she and VP are FRIENDS. Not just 3 hour acquaintances like VP said. And that they went to Vegas together! P asks VP about it and VP starts crying but sticks to her guns.

All 3 of them finally sit down to hash things out but VP will only say “I don’t know what to say” and “my truth is the truth”. WHUT???? P asks Al to come back!!! Does this show not have any rules anymore??? It’s mayhem!!! Then P gives Al the group date rose!!! Al wasn’t even on the date!!! The other girls are pisssssssed!!!!

We break from all that drama for Kelsey’s 1-1 date. They are touring Cleveland. P calls Kels a “down to earth no drama person”. WHAT??? Does he not remember Champagne Gate 2020 from a scant 2 weeks ago??? This man has lost his damn mind.

He’s super into Kels for someone he knows nothing about. That night at Fake Dinner (the On a Boat Edition) Kels tells her sad story. Her parents got divorced. Welcome to the USA Kels! Join the kids of divorce club! P tries to commiserate by telling Kels his grandma and mom immigrated to the US from Cuba. Um…not the same P. Not even close! Kels gets the rose and says “No man has ever accepted me the way he has”. Good LORD men need to do better!!!

Meanwhile, Al has told everyone at the house about VF dating Chase Rice. When Al got sent home she had access to her phone and Google and she scored some serious hot goss.

Pre-Rose Ceremony Cocktail Party~

P comes in and welcomes the ladies and goes to ask VP to talk but before he can, Deandra and Natasha put him on blast for bringing Al back and giving her the rose and basically ignoring the rest of them. While I applaud them for standing up for themselves, this is not a good strategic move ladies. Y’all going home the first chance P gets now.

VP is all worked up over being caught lying to P and is letting P have it. So bizarre. Like those people who hurt your feelings then get mad at you when you tell them they hurt your feelings! Also, where did Mykenna get that GINORMOUS pearl barrette?? Are they in style now? Am I missing something? Please advise.

And that’s where the sadists at ABC have left us! We’ll have to wait until next week to find out if the remaining ladies have ripped Peter limb from limb! xo šŸŒ¹

Bachelor Week 3

We start this week’s episode with Kelsey and Hannah Ann STILL crying over Champagne Gate 2020! Get over it Ladies! HA accidentally opened and drank some of Kelsey’s Idaho champagne and all hell broke loose. All the other girls in the house are sure over it!

1-1 with Victoria P. Peter takes VP to his hometown to a general store where they outfit her in a cowboy hat and cowboy boots. They then go line dancing at a country bar.

Back at the house Kels and HA are hashing it out. Tears are a-flowing and it’s scenes like this that show you how blown out of proportion drama can get when you put a bunch of ladies in one house and take away their phones!

Next we move into the evening portion of VP’s 1-1 date. They are having Fake Dinner in an airplane hangar because it’s been a solid 5 minutes since ABC has reminded us that Pilot Peter is in fact a pilot of planes. VP launches into a story right away about her childhood and how her dad died when she was young and her mom battled addiction so they were in and out of homeless shelters and VP had to take care of her sister. I swear it’s like the producers have them sit down then immediately cattle prod the women until they cry and tell their most sad story. Well, the story apparently has a huge impact on ol’ Pilot Pete because he tells VP that she’s inspired him more than anyone else in his life and I’m thinking it’s a bit heavy handed, but hey, that’s ratings for you! Not surprisingly, VP gets the rose. They then make out in a vintage plane and poor VP says it’s one of the best days of her life and I’ve never felt more sorry for her than I do right now. Raise the bar girl!

V v early the next morning, Demi and 2 women come in to the mansion at the crack o’dawn bearing feather pillows. They wake up all the girls in the house and bestow upon the group date girls lingerie that they are to wear to today’s date. Savannah gets a muumuu and Kiarra literally calls her outfit “LINGER REE”. Ugh. Our education system is seriously lacking folks. The girls and P go to a saloon and are forced to pillow fight each other for P’s affection. The championship round is between Alayah and Sydney who, shocker, don’t like each other. Alayah wins a crown and a kiss from P.

Later, during the night portion of the date, Alayah starts talking baby talk to P and I vomit just a bit. She snags P first to chat. After her talk with P, Sydney comes for Al and her “fakeness”. I personally can’t stand a baby talker, unless you’re talking to an actual baby, so I’m Team Syd right now. Although you gotta admit, aren’t ALL the girls in the house a bit fake? I’ve never seen so much silicone, capped teeth and eyelash extensions!!! Anyway, Syd tells P about how fake Al is and he doesn’t quite know how to handle this. So he puts Syd on the spot in front of the whole group and tells her to out whoever is being fake. Peter clearly wants Syd to be killed by a stiletto wielding pageant girl! Syd fesses up and says it’s Al. P gets up and walks away. Al starts crying and goes to P to plead her case, then turns off the tears when back with the group. Sydney gets the rose. I thought the saying went “snitches get stitches” not roses! You know Syd is in for it when she gets home to the mansion!!!

The next day Chris Harrison announces there will be no pre-Rose Ceremony cocktail party because they are going to have a pool party instead! The girls all get ready for the pool party but 2 minutes later P shows up and cancels it! He grabs Syd for a talk. Then he talks to Kelsey who says Alayah puts on a show. Then Natasha says the same and on and on it goes. Meanwhile Al is talk, talk, talking to anyone who will listen about how authentic she is. Methinks she doth protest too much!!!

Al then pulls Syd aside and they fuss at each other. Meanwhile, VP tells P that Al told her to keep it a secret that she and Al knew each other before the show. P then confronts Al who KNOWS she’s screwed and comes up with the most flimsy excuses. You can tell she believes her own bull. P then leaves the mansion.

Rose Ceremony~ Kelsey gets the first rose so clearly P has forgotten all about Champagne Gate 2020. Mykenna is about to burst with anxiety over getting a rose, but she gets the last one. Alayah, Jasmine, Alexa (boooo, I liked her), and Sarah (who??) are all going home.

But wait! P is then shown talking to one of the producers about how he’s second guessing his decision to send Al home. No take backs Pete!

Ok, off to watch week 4! xo šŸŒ¹
