Bachelor Week 3

It’s week 3 BBs! We pick up at the rose ceremony with Cassidy and her FWB (friend with benefits) drama. Clayton asks Jesse if he can take away Cassidy’s rose & Jesse says there are no rules. So Clayton pulls Cassidy to talk and of course she denies having a relationship with anyone. Then she admits it. Clayton sends her home.


Rose Ceremony


Shanae gets the last rose. Going home: Ency, Tessa (who??), and Kate.


Group Date #1


The ladies file into a dark room then sit in a circle. Kaitlin Bristowe is there to host the date, and of course Clayton is there. Everyone has to talk about their body insecurities. Poor Hunter talks about how an ex made her wear colored contacts and dye her hair! Good grief! By the end of it everyone is crying. It’s a v supportive environment and even Clayton shares some body insecurities.


Night


Clayton shows up to the after party in another hoodie/suit combo. WHO is his stylist??? This is a horrible combo!!! Eliza gets the group date rose.


Sarah’s 1-1


All of the body positivity from yesterday is completely squashed by today’s date. C and Sarah are forced to run around LA in their underwear on an extreme scavenger hunt. GROAN. Why in their undies??? How gratuitous!!!


Fake Dinner is at the Van Gogh immersive exhibit and it is beautiful. Sarah talks about how she was adopted and how she always felt like second choice. She gets the rose.


Group Date #2


Today’s date takes place at the beach. The ladies all have to change into the iconic Baywatch red swimsuits and you’d think C’s eyes were going to pop out of his head! Again, any positive ground gained the other day is now lost. SIGH. Shanae keeps talking about how this is all a contest and how she’s gonna win.


Night


Gabby talks C into taking his shirt off so she can rub aloe on him and I am so tired of seeing his nips!


Shanae tells Clayton she’s being bullied in the house and that Elizabeth is the ring leader. This, of course, is not true. But Clayton confronts Eliz who melts into tears because every conversation she has with C is about Shanae drama. Meanwhile, Shanae tells the camera “Oh I am SO good. I even cried! He believed me!!” This girl is ballsy! I’m so excited for the women tell all episode already because of her!


Shanae and Eliz get into it about the drama, but we’ll have to wait until next week to see what happens!


Until then BBs! xo 🌹

Bachelor Week 2

It’s week 2 BBs and it’s time for dates and drama! First, the women move into the Bachelor mansion and they are extremely excited about it.


Group Date #1


Hilary Duff hosts the date. The ladies are tasked to set up a little girl’s birthday party. Cassidy is supposed to help set up a play house but flat out refuses. “I’m not here to hang streamers”. Instead she drags Clayton out of sight of the other ladies to the pool where they make out for a half hour. The two of them rejoin the group long enough for Cassidy to DROP THE CHILD’S BIRTHDAY CAKE ON THE GROUND!!! The same cake that Genevieve spent an hour decorating!!! None of this earns Cass any points with the women, who are currently plotting her death.


Night


Clayton arrives at the after party in a hoodie and a sports jacket and I’m so confused!!! WHO is his stylist??? Such an odd pairing. The girls confront Cassidy about her behavior that day and our girl Cass DOES. NOT. CARE. She makes it v v clear she is here for one thing only and that is not making friends. Somehow Cassidy gets the group date rose and the other ladies are LIVID.


Susie’s 1-1


Susie LUCKS OUT on her date! She and C take a helicopter to a yacht to spend the day! They hang in the hot tub, swim, and make out. It’s not really all that noteworthy TBH. Susie reminds me SO much of Hannah B! And she says “LIKE” so much my head like hurts listening to her like, talk. She gets the rose.


Group Date #2


When the group date card is read out loud and Jill’s name isn’t on it, she cries tears and complains about how she left her friends and family and CAT! Bahahaha!!! Classic.
The group enters a room where a comedian is waiting to host the date. Ziwe is her name. Elizabeth sits next to Clayton and Shanae is so upset that she didn’t think of that move. Shanae spends her time glaring at Eliz and C flirting during the whole date. The group plays Never Have I Ever and then the girls have to complete an obstacle course. At one point Shanae shoves Eliz to the ground. Sarah wins the course.


Night


Shanae decides Eliz doesn’t like her anymore so she tells Clayton that Eliz isn’t here for the right reasons. Shanae then tells the camera ” We’re in a competition and I want to win”. Nice. SO of course Clayton tells Eliz and then Eliz confronts Shanae. Shanea then tells all the girls that Eliz has ADHD. Again, how v nice of her, right? Sarah gets the Group Date rose.


Cocktail Party


Shanae & Eliz’s drama is STILL going on. UGH. Even Cassidy, who up to this point has been coaching Shanae in how to win, tells her to cut her losses. Cassidy has some drama of her own though because she apparently forgets she’s being filmed and tells another girl that she has a FWB at home!!! *Friend with benefits. AND this FWB just FaceTimed with Cass the day before filming. They spoke of plans for when she gets home. This info gets back to Clayton because OF COURSE IT DOES and Clayton goes to Jesse Palmer and asks “Has anyone ever taken back a rose??”. Meanwhile Cassidy is with the women saying “What’s he gonna do? I have a rose!” YIKES.


We have to wait 2 weeks to find out what happens BBs! Until then, xo 🌹

Bachelor Season Premiere

BBs!!! It’s time for another season of the Bachelor! With the most boring Bachelor ever!!! But I’m a glutton for punishment, so here we are.


We have a new host- Jesse Palmer. UGH. I wanted Wells to be the new host, but you can’t always get what you want.


We start with a twist- a big one! One of the contestants, Salley, (that e is KILLING me) was formerly engaged and was supposed to be married yesterday!!! She’s debating leaving when she decides to go to Clayton’s room to meet him and talk. And they let her!!! This is unprecedented! So Salley tells C her story and that she may leave. C excuses himself for a moment and comes back with a rose!!! He offers her the rose, she says can I think on it, leaves the room for a while, comes back and TURNS HIM DOWN!!! Then she leaves the show. I have emotional whiplash from the whole thing!!!


Limo entrances


Note- we are back at the LA mansion. I wrote down all the ladies’ names, ages, and occupations but y’all don’t need all that. Lemme just skip to the good stuff.


Kate, 32, walks up to C and whips out 2 airplane bottles of booze FROM HER BRA!!! She then forces the poor man to do a shot from one and calls the bottles her nips!!!


Melina, 27, literally JUMPS on the man in moon shoes. Girl catches air!


Jill, 26, brings an urn and says they are “the ashes of my ex-boyfriends in case you make the same mistake.” Okayyyyy.


Ivana, 31, walks up completely silent and just mimes to him a bit then walks inside. Note- her occupation? Bar Mitzvah dancer.


Kira, 32, a physician, walks up in her doctor coat and red bra and underwear. That’s it!


Gabby, 30, brings a pillow with C’s face on it and literally says on national tv “I just want to sit on your face”. DYING.


Hunter, 28, from Charlotte! Brings a giant yellow snake wrapped around her neck. Y’all, that first night is a LONG one and you know that snake had to poop at some point!


I do have to say, there’s lots of diversity among the women and that’s progress, even if the ladies are acting like they haven’t seen a man in the flesh since March 2020.


Cocktail Party


Teddi (my favorite) gets the first kiss.


Claire talks with Clayton and they play cornhole. Then another lady walks up to steal him away. Afterwards, Claire goes around the house telling everyone that her time with him was awful and she can’t marry America’s sweetheart!!! Honey, America’s sweetheart is QUITE the stretch, but I get where you’re coming from. Another girl tells C about the bad mouthing and C sends Claire home.


Teddi gets the 1st impression rose! Yay!!!


Rose Ceremony


The sun is coming up!!! I told y’all it’s a long night!!! Serene gets the first rose. She is stunning. Going home: Ivana, Daria, Hailey, Jane, Lindsay D, Rianna, and Samantha.
Then ABC does the whole “this season on the Bachelor” thing and shows the entire show again! We KNOW what’s going to happen so why watch??? UGH ABC, you don’t get it!!!


And that’s it until next week BBs!!! xo🌹
