Well BBs, it’s time for another season of the Bachelorette! This time it’s Michelle’s turn to find love.

This season starts out being filmed in Palm Springs at a resort. Before the first big night, Caitlyn and Tayshia go around the hotel to the guys’ rooms and rummaging around in their things! In one guy’s room, Ryan, they find folders of notes and charts and graphs detailing things like how to get the most screen time, how to pretend to be interested in Michelle, etc. Controversy!!!

Skip to the first night. Michelle looks stunning in a metallic cut out dress, her hair curled and loose. I think it’s so funny that they still pile all the guys into limos and drive them around the block so they can make their entrances since everyone’s staying in the same resort!

Limo Entrances

Romeo 32 mathematician. Speaks French, no socks.

Joe 28 real estate developer. Cute. Turns out Michelle recognizes him! She had slid into his DMs and they had talked about basketball in a few messages before he ghosted her she says.

Cocktail Party

Michelle pulls Joe to talk about their past communication. He says he was overwhelmed with the whole George Floyd situation and wasn’t in a good place to start a relationship. They are both from Minnesota. She says well you could have just told me that. Truth!

Later on, Caitlyn and Tayshia tell Michelle about what they found in Ryan’s room. Michelle immediately asks Ryan to chat. She confronts him about his folders and notes and he’s falling all over himself trying to justify it. It’s just a mess. He’s like a friend’s wife wrote those notes. And I wrote those notes. Michelle, like the teacher she is, marches Ryan up to his room and demands to see the notes. She reads over them while Ryan is standing in the hall talking a mile a minute about how it’s no biggie. Michelle sends him home and walks him out in front of everyone. Let that be a lesson learned young man!!!

Michelle returns to the cocktail party. She gives Nayte the 1st impression rose after a nice conversation. They kiss.

Rose Ceremony

At the final rose, Michelle debates giving the rose to Joe and even walks out to gather herself for a moment. She comes back in and gives the final rose to Joe.

Going home: JoMarri, Jack, Garrett, Edward, Bryan, and Brandon K. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!!!

Until next week BBs!!! xo🌹
