Week 9!! I can’t believe it’s week 9 and Tayshia still has 47 men left to choose from! Narrow the field!!!
We start back at Noah and Bennet’s 2-1 Date, um I mean stern conversation. I saw on Instagram someone comparing Bennet’s teeth to American Girl Doll teeth and now I can’t unsee it. Google it for a treat!!! So Bennet gets to talk to Tay first and she just looks at him with this glazed over expression. I’ve seen more interest come from a tortilla. Also, Bennet is WAY TOO OLD to be wearing bright, white sneakers with a suit! Come on man! I don’t wanna see those ankles!!!
After talking with Tay, Noah goes back and starts up again with Bennet! Not that Bennet doesn’t deserve it but stop being a shit stirrer Noah!!! Tay comes back and tells Bennet he’s condescending and she can’t give him the rose. I could see this coming from a mile away yet I’m still a bit shocked! I say send them both home! This fight they’re in isn’t even interesting! Tay walks a STUNNED Bennet out and then says sending him home just didn’t feel right.
Cut to Noah who’s shoveling Tic Tacs in his mouth as fast as he can. Tay tells him this is NOT a victory for him and doesn’t give him the rose either! But she lets him stay around for the rose ceremony. She also tells Noah he’s not ready for marriage.
Noah doesn’t get any time with Tayshia. Meanwhile, after finding out that next week is Home Towns and approximately 30 of them are going home tonight, the guys pull out all the stops to try and get that coveted rose!
There are only 5 roses and this sends the guys into a group panic! Noah skates by by the skin of his teeth and gets the last rose. Going home: Ed (thank you Lord), Demar, and my dear, sweet, super cute Spencer!!! BUT she kept Blake!?!?! This world does not make sense!!!
There are now 7 men left.
The next day Zac gets all emotional about the possibility of bringing Tay home to his family. There’s just something about Zac that does not sit right with me. Hmmm.
Ben gets the 1-1. They do a scavenger hunt around the La Quinta property and it’s a pretty lame date. Even by Covid standards. Step it up producers!!!
I notice that Ben has really good hands. I like good hands. He opens up to Tay telling her about his post-military struggles. He broke his back. AND he had 2 failed suicide attempts. I just want to hug him so hard. This is some really personal information that he’s sharing and I think it’s so brave and so important. Kudos to ABC for letting these guys’ personal confessions air. Tayshia gives Ben the rose.
Jojo is there to administer the cheapest, jankiest looking lie detector test I’ve ever seen! They couldn’t bring in an “expert” for the day??? Personally, I wouldn’t trust anything that hunk of bolts told me, but I digress.
Tay goes first and then the guys strap in. Zac admits he’s cheated in the past, the machine says Riley’s name isn’t his name, and Brendan is straight up terrified to take Tay home to mama.
Later at the after party…. Tay shows up wearing a set of white damask curtains pretending to be a dress. It has a VERY bridal feel to it. It even has a train!!!
Zac says he did cheat. In the 6th grade. UGH. Brendan’s wearing a Star Trek costume knock off top and it’s so distracting I can barely pay attention to what he’s saying. Riley changed his name due to some painful family history. He was a Junior but there was lots of drama with his dad so now he’s not.
Tayshia says she can’t give out the group date rose and they’ll have to wait until the rose ceremony.
Tay goes back to her room and who should be standing outside her door like a creepy stalker but Bennet!!!! WHAT?!? She lets him in even though I’m screaming at the tv for her not to. They sit down and Bennet says he loves her. He’s breathing all heavy and now she’s all confused and caught off guard. She tells him to give her till tomorrow to think about it. They stand for her to walk him out and hug. Bennet goes in for a kiss but Tay says NO, nice try!!!
And that’s it for this week!!! I personally think Bennet just doesn’t like to lose. He’s not once spoken about Tayshia in a tender, loving manner. My 2 cents.
Next week is a two night event- Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday being the Men Tell All, which I LOVE! Can’t wait!!! Until then my BBs! 🌹xo
