Happy Drinksgiving!!! It’s time for Week 7 BBs!!!
We start out with the guys all bellyaching about last night. Chris Harrison arrives and announces that the guys who were not on the group date last night have to write a love song and perform it for Tayshia to win a 1-1 with her. Zac, Kenny, Blake, & Riley deliver some pretty pitiful performances, but bless em, they tried. Bennet proceeds to RAP (mind you he’s the white Harvard boy) about Brie in Paris. It’s painful. Ivan and Demar sing some pretty good songs! Ivan even brings Tay up on stage, and for that he wins.
So that night Ivan goes to Tayshia’s suite and you could tell the producers were really scratching their heads about what could the two of them do on their date that would be allowed on air at 8pm on ABC?? So they played the floor is lava and Twister and had a pillow fight, etc. They actually ordered and ate REAL DINNER from room service, including a ginormous ice cream sundae that seriously would have fed the entire resort!!! Then Tay and Ivan go outside to chat. Ivan gets deep and shares about his little brother who spent some time in jail. Their conversation turns to Black Lives Matter and their personal experiences growing up mixed race in America. I applaud ABC for not cutting this part of the date! WAY TO GO! For real. Ivan, of course, gets the rose. I like Ivan. If this were a non Covid season of the Bachelorette, I’m not sure he’d have lasted this long, as he’s quiet and not obnoxious. But I think he’d be good for Tay. He has a real job! And is intelligent! Godspeed Ivan!
The next day Becca and Sydney arrive to “help” with the group date. Which is basically a wacky version of Truth or Dare. The guys all have to do the dares during the day, the truth part will be at the after party. They split up into groups of 2 and have to do things like drink nasty smoothies with bull testicles, find CH and have him sign their tushies, etc. CH is eating crab legs and having champagne when 2 of the guys find him to sign their bodies. I KNEW CH was living the high life when he was off camera!!!
One of the dares is that the guys have to make orgasm noises into the hotel’s PA system over the phone. If this is really how Blake hits bingo, I feel so sorry for whoever he’s normally sharing that moment with because the man sounds possessed! I never want to hear that again. Shudder.
The last task is to eat a whole habanero pepper and fake propose to Tay. Bennet cracks me up because it’s during this dare that he realizes he actually has real feelings for someone other than himself and the boy is shooketh!
Tay arrives to the after party looking so pretty. Her stylist is doing right by her and I am here for it! Bennet seems so rose driven to me, even with these newfound feelings. Hmmmm. The guys are all supposed to be revealing truths tonight but nothing major comes out except that Bennet was engaged once before. And there’s not much talking between Zac and Tay as they are making out feverishly in the hot tub. I’m shocked she didn’t end up pregnant!!!
Later that night, like 2:30 am later, both Ed and Ben decide independently that they are going to surprise Tay in her room. Ed knocks on the door and it’s CHs room! He then asks if Tayshia is there! Bahahaha!!!! No Ed, the budget isn’t THAT tight. They gave Tay her own room! CH invites Ed in for wine and it’s so awkward! I’m dying!!!!
Meanwhile, Ben successfully makes it to Tay’s suite and offers up an apology for not stepping up to talk with her on his group date. He’s ordered champagne and strawberries and Tay accepts his apology. Is it just me or does Ben seem to have lots of free space in his mouth? It’s like a gaping chasm! A black hole! Anyway, Tay appreciates the gesture so I guess that’s what matters.
The next night at the Cocktail Party Tay looks stunning in a high necked, long beaded white gown. It looks embossed to in some way, if that makes sense. Anyway, Ben steals her away first. Then Noah sits down to talk to her and he’s looking so cute sans pornstache! UNTIL….DUN DUN DUN!!! He turns into a pot stirrer right before our eyes! Noah goes and tells Tay that the guys in the house are questioning her intentions and integrity, saying that she only gave Noah a rose to stir up drama in the house. WHOA. This doesn’t sit well with Tay, natch, who marches back to the group and gives them all the what for. And the thing is, they didn’t deserve it! But she doesn’t know that. Tay cancels the rest of the cocktail party and the guys are seriously puzzled and pissed! Only 2 guys got time with her tonight. The guys quickly figure out that Noah was the last guy with her and Noah tells them he told Tay that the guys all said she only gave him the rose for show. The guys are LIVID. Bennet says I’m here for love, not to be breastfeeding Noah. Ha!
Ed looks like your grumpy drunk cousin standing there. Ugh. I’m so over him. But miraculously he gets the final rose of the night! Going home: sweet Joe, cringey Kenny, creepy Chasen, and forgettable Jordan.
Until next week my Bbs!!! Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!!! 🌹
