Bachelor Week 9- Fantasy Suites

WOW. Just wow. Where to begin BBs??? SO much to unpack. Let’s start with the first Fantasy Suite date. This week we are in Iceland. Iceland is stunningly beautiful and there are puffins! There are also 3 women who are all in love with the same dude and they are forced to share a hotel room. Nothing makes conversation more awkward than knowing your roommate is getting ready to go have sex with the guy you had sex with last night! GROSS.


Rachel’s date is first and they go on a helicopter ride then take a rickety elevator down an inactive volcano. That would be a HARD NOPE for me! I’ve seen this movie and the blonde doesn’t make it out! That night at Fake Dinner, Clayton tells Rachel he’s falling in love with her. She visibly melts in front of him. The next morning as Rachel stands on the balcony wrapped in a robe and sporting major bed head, Clay yells from the street to her that he loves her.


Gabby and Clayton go riding in a dune buggy on the black sand beaches. That night at Fake Dinner, Clayton tells Gabby he’s falling in love with her. She visibly melts in front of him. Skkkkkrrrrreeeech WHAT?!? Yep, it’s like I’m having MAJOR deja vu but no, he gives practically the same speech to both women. Then he has sex with them. My skin is crawling. The next morning as he’s leaving Gabby he yells (again with the public yelling) that he’s falling in love. Does he not know that these women and their families will be watching this show??? How special they must feel!!!


Lastly we have Susie’s date. All week she’s been watching the girls return from their overnight dates. She’s not dumb. She knows what’s going on. But she musters up a smile and she and Clay go to a hot spring. That night at Fake Dinner, Clayton tells Susie he’s falling in love with her. But instead of melting, Susie asks Clayton if he’s had sex with another woman here and is he in love with anyone else. He hems and haws but eventually arrives at yes and yes. But it’s ok Susie because “I’m the MOST in love with you”. VOMIT. Susie says she doesn’t think she can get past it. Sex is v important to her and she doesn’t want to be sloppy thirds or share in his “love” with other women. Who could blame her??? Ooh ooh, I know who! CLAYTON! He literally tells Susie that SHE is the one who let us get to this point. That SHE should have said something earlier. The audacity of it all!!!

They both walk away from the table for a moment. Jesse comes to talk to Clayton while Susie is crying while talking to producers. Susie comes out to talk to C some more and he yells at her. YELLS at her. “What am I supposed to do? You invalidated everything we have. I don’t know who you are anymore. This is BS. I’m walking you out.” OMG. HE is the one who couldn’t keep it in his pants. She doesn’t owe him squat!!! Ladies and Gentleman of the jury, all season Clayton has shown as much personality as a crouton, until tonight. Now we know. Now we know who he really is.

Poor Susie. Next week Clayton has to face the firing squad and yay for that. It looks wild. Ugh, I’m still seething!!! Until then BBs. xo🌹
