Bachelor Week 8

It’s Hometowns week BBs! I can’t wait to see what ABC cobbles together for this! It can’t be nearly as bad as what Tayshia & Co dealt with at La Quinta!


Michelle
Michelle and Matt bike to an auditorium where her students are all on Zoom! It’s so cute! They ask a bunch of questions like “have you kissed” and “are you going to have babies?”. It’s v adorable! Matt’s pants are SO tight you can see his credit cards. It’s borderline profane! That night they meet up with Michelle’s parents and they are precious! Mom and Dad are super supportive and sweet and they must be protected at all costs.


Rachael
Rachael takes Matt sky diving. How big is this Nemacolin property?!? Matt lands fine and then Rachael comes hurtling toward Earth at a frightening speed! She and her tandem instructor slam into the ground with Rachael hitting face first and her instructor landing on top of her! Matt runs over to her and your girl is picking grass out of her hair! She’s a little banged up, but ok overall. That night when Matt meets her parents and sister, Dad is v skeptical. They all are. But Rachael swears she loves Matt. In fact she really wants Matt to ask Dad for his blessing. That doesn’t happen.


Bri
Matt and Bri go off roading in a Jeep for the day portion of their date. That night, Matt meets Bri’s mom, BFF who’s also named Bri, and Bri’s tiny baby (like newborn) sister! Bri’s mom is so young and gorgeous! Mom’s already preparing for heartbreak though! Bri tells Matt she’s falling in love with him.


Serena P
For the day portion of their date Serena teaches Matt all about Canada and makes him eat cold, congealed poutine. They play ice hockey. Later, Matt meets Serena’s mom, dad, and sister. Serena has big, big doubts about Matt and her family spots these doubts right away.
The next day Matt talks to Chris Harrison, who tells Matt he needs to sort things out with Serena. So Matt goes to Serena’s room to talk. Serena tells Matt he is not her person and goes home. Matt actually seems pretty broken up about this. The most emotion I’ve seen him show since Tyler came to visit!


Rose Ceremony
Since Serena left, no one else is eliminated. Michelle gets the first rose and Bri gets the last (which worries her).
Next week is Women Tell All and with how nasty all the ladies have been this season, it’s sure to be packed full of drama!!!Until then BBs! xo🌹

Bachelor Week 7

Welcome to week 7 of the train wreck that is The Bachelor!!! Let me start by saying I’m not going to address the racist mess that’s going on with Bachelor Nation here. You can read all about it if you Google anything to do with the Bachelor. Now, on with the show!


This week picks up with Heather’s entrance. She talks with Matt then joins the other girls. The other girls POUNCE on her!!! Guess they forgot all the “bullying” they were preaching about last week!!! Heather eventually starts crying and walks away. Meanwhile, Matt is outside thinking and speaking with Chris Harrison. Matt goes back in to talk to Heather and tells her she can’t stay and walks her out to her minivan. Heather is crying real tears over this and I’m like girl you spent all of 20 minutes with the dude. You’ll be fine!


Matt walks back in and apologizes to the women and commends them on their behavior! WHAT??? Clearly he has no knowledge of the brutal verbal lashing these women gave Heather a mere 10 minutes ago!!! Talk about toxic!!!


Rose Ceremony


Going home, Chelsea (😭) and Serena C (YAY!!!). Finally the last of the mean girls is gone!!!


The next day the girls are all waiting to see who gets the first 1-1. At this point Jessenia and Abigail STILL haven’t had 1-1s. I don’t think Jessenia has much of a connection with Matt but Abigail got the first impression rose!


Serena P gets ANOTHER 1-1!!!! They go to do tantric yoga. Good gravy this is uncomfortable to watch! First you have this giant man Matt in cropped leggings and then you have self proclaimed hater of PDA, Serena, being forced to rub all over Matt. Cringe. Serena is NOT into it. Also, she mentions she is not quick to love. Then WHY are you on a show where speed is a requirement???

At Fake Dinner, Matt says he loves how honest Serena is about hating the date, then gives her the rose. So Serena is definitely going to hometowns.


Group Date


Ok, this is weird. There’s no actual activity. They just all sit around taking turns talking to Matt. Boring. BUT we learn that Bri quit her dream job to be there with Matt. BOY, you better marry this girl!!! It’s a pandemic! Jobs are hard to come by to say the least!


When it’s Abigail’s turn to chat, Matt tells her he was so comfortable in their relationship that he explored other relationships. WHAT???? Men are straight trash. So he lets her go and walks her out. Abigail, you are too pure for this world and you deserved better!!!


Rachel gets the group date rose and Matt walks her out of the room and to one of those Bachelor special private concerts where they make out in front of a musician.


After the group date is over, Kit goes to Matt’s villa and tells him she doesn’t know if he’s the one and since hometowns are next week, she should know by now. So she goes home. Good on you Kit! You are too young to be on this show and getting married anyway!!!


Jessenia’s 1-1


Ok, so it’s the week before hometowns. This is your last chance before meeting the fam that you have to get to know this woman. So naturally you spend the afternoon drifting around a race track/parking lot in a muscle car. Loads of opportunities for deep conversation there!


Later at Fake Dinner, Jessenia tells Matt she’s falling in love with him. Matt picks up the rose and dangles it in front of her like a carrot and tells her he can’t give her the rose. SAVAGE.


Rose Ceremony


Going home: PIEPer. OMG! I’m shocked! PIEper is so angry she doesn’t say a word as he walks her out.


Can’t wait to see how ABC cobbles together hometowns next week. At least they aren’t all at the La Quinta!!!
Until then my BBs! xo🌹

The Bachelor Week 6

Here we are at week 6 my BBs and what have we learned?? Matt, our bachelor, has the personality of a tortilla. And the girls who are vying for his attention are MEAN!!!


We pick up at the 2-1 with Jessenia (who I honestly don’t even remember being on this show) and mean girl MJ. Matt arrives and speaks with Jessenia first then MJ. MJ to Matt- My heart is so big. Peace and harmony!!! Jessenia to MJ- Listen MEREDITH. OOOOOH Jess brought out the proper first name!!! Matt sends MJ home with a sigh. I have the subtitles on for this show and it says “SIGH” under Matt a LOT. 😂


After the emotionally draining task of sending MJ home, Matt cancels the cocktail party and you’d think he’d killed a puppy with the way the girls are moaning and griping!!! Get it together!!! They skip right to the Rose Ceremony. Going home: Ryan (who’s sobbing is starting to make me feel uncomfortable- you’ve only been there like 2 weeks), Magi, and Brittany.


The next day Serena C decides she wants to argue with Katie about her “antics” stealing time from Serena and Matt. All because Katie brought up the toxicity in the house to Matt. Me thinks she protests too much Serena C! Sounds like you’re one of the mean girls Serena!! Serena and Katie scream at each other for a while and get no where.


Meanwhile, Miss Never Been Kissed Heather Martin from Colton’s season arrives. WHAT?!? She’s hell bent on meeting Matt because Hannah Brown told her they’d be a good match. Do people just not follow the rules anymore??? It’s a flipping free for all this season!!! Chris Harrison lets her come in and test and quarantine. I give up!


Pieper’s (no offense PIEper but I’m mad at your mom for that unnecessary E in your name) 1-1


Matt drives PIE out to the woods and makes her walk in the dark for a while until they come to a big switch. PIE flips the switch and a carnival lights up! Complete with rides and all! V cute.


At Fake Dinner PIE reveals that her parents don’t say I love you and that’s been hard. She then tells Matt she’s falling in love with him and he gives her the rose. They then go to one of those private concerts and slow dance and make out in front of a singing trio who’s desperately trying not to look at Matt and PIE. It’s just awkward.


Group Date


Bowling! I mean. This place has it over the La Quinta when it comes to activities! No interns scrambling to come up with another way to use the meeting room here! CH comes in and tells the girls it’s a competition, of course. The winners get an after party. The pink team wins and the blue team heads back to the house.


After Party

Matt feels bad and invites the blue team to the after party. The Pink team is not happy. Michelle gets the rose.


The next day Matt plays a little pool with Tyler and gets a pep talk from him. Which is weird because Tyler didn’t end up with his bachelorette. Again, no rules apply this season!


Katie’s 1-1


Katie and Matt (who’s in yet ANOTHER turtleneck!!! What’s he hiding under all that fabric?? Has no one told him about a crew neck? Hell, I’d even take a v neck at this point!) meet up at the spa. I’m thinking oooh a nice romantic couples massage! But no, Tyler is getting the massage and Katie and Matt are telling Ty’s masseuse what to do to prank Ty. It’s kinda funny but puts Katie smack dab in the middle of the friend zone if you ask me.


Fake Dinner


Katie arrives wearing a PUFFER coat on top of a banker’s ensemble. Katie, sweetie, can you TRY to look like you want him to be your boyfriend and not your business partner in an Amway scheme? Oy. So Katie’s talking about her love story and how she wants it to be his love story and Matt’s just sitting there all stone faced. Sure enough he sends her home. Womp womp.


Cocktail Party


It’s the next night and Matt’s chatting up some of the women when Heather pulls up in her minivan dressed for her own premature wedding. She walks in, smiles at the gathered women, and bee lines it to Matt. She interrupts Matt and PIE (who leaves in stunned silence). Matt and Heather hug and is it just me or is Matt extra handsy for a guy who’s JUST now meeting this girl??


PIE walks back out to the group and she is PISSED. All the girls are SHOOKETH!!!


And that’s it for this week my BBs! Until next week! xo 🌹

Bachelor Week 5

Welcome, my BBs, to Week 5 of the Bachelor where we explore the lengths 20 millennial women will go to to earn the affections of a guy who kisses with his eyes open!!!


We jump in at the pre-rose ceremony cocktail party. If you remember, last week Katie told Matt about the toxicity in the house and how horrible, life ruining rumors were being spread. So Matt addresses the group and tells them he knows what’s going on in the house and it has to stop. He pulls Brittany aside to chat first and learns that Anna has been telling people Brittany is a sex worker. Next Matt chats with Anna and sends her home! Yay! Well, would you look at that, it’s the consequences of my actions!!! I love to see it!!!


Meanwhile, back in the group, the OG girls are falling all over themselves apologizing to the new girls.
Victoria is wearing yet another odd dress. Her boobs are smashed into this loooooow cut bronze dress that has 2 HIGH slits and she basically looks naked. Vic pulls Matt to talk. During their chat Matt lets it slip that it was Katie who came to him last night. Matt leaves Vic sitting there.


Chris Harrison comes in and announces the cocktail party is over.


Rose Ceremony


Brittany and Ryan get the first 2 roses and that sends a message to the OG girls that Matt likes the new ladies. Serena C gets the final rose. Going home: Mari, Lauren, Miss Puerto Rico, and ……VICTORIA!!! Girl, you lost your king! Victoria does not go quietly into that good night either. She hides behind the other girls until the end and then yells at Matt that she feels sorry for him. She walks out with no hug. In her exit interview she goes on and on about how she will be missed and how she brings so much joy to the house. Um, ok.


Rachael’s 1-1


Rachael gets the coveted shopping spree 1-1!!!! Matt is wearing another turtleneck. Rachael ends up with bags upon bags of fancy dresses AND a pair of red bottoms! Yep, your girl has a pair of Louboutins!!! When she returns to the group an evening gown gets delivered to her. Ooh la la sassoon!!!


Fake Dinner


Rachael says she’s falling in love with Matt and Matt says the same. Rachael is looking gorgeous in her new dress! She’s one of my favorites so I’m glad she got this date. She gets the rose.


Group Date


Matt, wearing yet ANOTHER turtleneck, takes the ladies down to a farm to do random and various farm chores and challenges. Not much happens except a lot of the girls are starting to have issues with him dating other women. I mean, you’ve seen the show, right??


After Party


Things are going per usual until Matt tells MJ that her name was brought up in the toxic house talks. MJ assures Matt that she’s all peace and harmony. MJ goes back to the group and immediately confronts the other girls. Jessenia says it was she who named MJ. MJ turns mean. Like watch your back, girl’s got a shiv, mean. States she’s owed an apology. I love how all these girls are doing all this petty stuff and saying terrible things but when they get called out the focus immediately shifts to “Who told?” Not the point ladies!!!! Abigail gets the group rose.


Kit’s 1-1


Kit goes to Matt’s villa and they bake cookies. She complains about how her life has been all red carpets and gold Bentleys and she just wants the little things. Turns out Kit’s mom is designer Cynthia Rowley!!! And Kit is only 21!!! WOW do I feel old now!!! Kit gets the rose.


The next day all the girls are gathered and a note is delivered from Matt. “MJ & Jessenia, I need to know the truth”. So now MJ and Jessenia are going to have a mini 2-1 before the pre-rose ceremony cocktail party. Little Miss Peace and Harmony (with her killer hair) says “Y’all wanna see me fight? Get your popcorn!” YIKES. Girl will CUT you!!!


And that’s it for this week! Next week Tyler comes to visit! Until then, my Bbs! xo 🌹
