Bachelorette Week 6

Week 6 BBs! This episode starts with a visit from, wait, could it be?? The hosts??? You mean we’ll actually see them for more than 5 seconds this week??? Tayshia and Kaitlyn stop by Katie’s suite to chat. During that chat Katie decides she wants to challenge the guys to a Seinfeld-esque challenge to withhold self love.

Kaitlyn gleefully runs to tell the guys and you’d think ABC had killed their parents the way they reacted!!! All except Mike P the virgin. HOW that man has gone his whole life without taking care of business on his own is beyond me! I’m truly concerned for him!

Justin 1-1

Katie takes Justin out to the woods where they are going to have the classic Wedding Photo Shoot date. Ugh. WHY do they do this?!? I mean, I know kids play wedding all the time, but to force grown ups to write their own vows and speak them while dressed in wedding attire?? You’d think that would spark some sort of bad wedding juju!

Fake Dinner

Katie talks about how the wedding date makes her miss her father even more. He passed away, and as it turns out, wasn’t her biological father! Family secrets! Justin just kind of sits there listening and manages to score the rose.

Group Date

This group date has 10 guys on it. Such a big crowd! The guys and Katie walk into a room and 2 beautiful drag queens come out. Monet and Shea (correct me if I’m wrong) tell the guys they are going to have a big Royal Debate where the guys have to probe why they are worthy of Katie’s heart and the others are not (roast style). The guys are throwing softballs until finally one of them accuses Hunter of having a top 4 list of contenders (he’s #1 of course). Hunter vehemently denies this, of course. Does he not realize he’s on tv? Dude, you were filmed talking about your top 4 just yesterday! Guys can be dumb!

After Party

When it’s Blake’s turn to have some 1-1 time with Katie, all it seems he talks about is masturbation!!! SO GROSS. James is sporting another turtle neck. He tells K about his concerns regarding Hunter. Then Tre does the same, and Aaron too. K talks to Hunter who denies everything. After K speaks to Hunter she calls an end to the night, leaving quite a few guys with no time with her.

Connor Cat Man 1-1

They have a double date with Kaitlyn and Jason. Katie is wearing cut off denim shorts, a bathing suit top, and my grandma’s cardigan (which looks a lot like a blazer at first glance). WHO IS HER STYLIST??? I have questions!!! Katie is feeling a bit friend zoney with Cat Man and really wants to kiss him some more to see if there’s a spark. They kiss at the end of their day portion of the date.

Night/ Fake Dinner

Connor is getting ready in his suite when Katie arrives in a hoodie and tears. Before K can even speak she’s crying and he says ” It’s ok. I know where this is going.” and my heart just breaks! She tells Cat Man that when they kiss there’s just something missing. I’d feel even more sorry for Connor than I do but I’m distracted yet again by his multiple necklaces and shirt that’s open past his nips. I don’t understand his obsession with this look. K breaks the news to him that he’s going home.

Instead of a PA grabbing his suitcase for him like they normally do, Cat Man goes back to the group of guys and says goodbye. By the time he’s given everyone hugs it seems that EVERYONE is in tears over his exit.

Cut to Katie crying in her room. She hears something and opens her window and there’s Blake standing there under her balcony holding up a boombox type thing blasting Memorize You (the song they danced to on their date) a la Say Anything. It’s a romantic gesture for sure. Katie invites him up and they make out.

Side note, some people on the interwebs discovered that Blake looks just like the lion from the Madagascar movie and I can’t unsee it!!! Something about his teeth and droopy dog cheeks and beard. I don’t know, I still don’t trust him!

The next night is the cocktail party and Rose Ceremony. Mike P is looking like a priest tonight with his mock turtleneck and giant Jesus necklace. Katie comes in and declares she knows what she wants to do so she cancels the cocktail party and they head straight to the Rose Ceremony.
There are only 6 roses on the table. K picks up the first rose and calls Hunter’s name and I yell NOOOOOO at my tv! But wait! She takes Hunter the troll outside to chat for a minute. They walk back in and he gets back in line, sans rose. Blake (ugh), Andrew, Suspender wearing Greg, Michael A, Mike P, and Brendan get roses. Aaron, James the box guy, Tre and his leopard print suit jacket, and Hunter (YAY!!!!) all get sent home.

Who are your favorites? We’re getting close to Home Towns! I’m so scared she’s going to pick Blake!!!

Until next week BBs! xo 🌹
