This is my favorite episode of all of the episodes. Well, besides the one where he proposes. This week we get the FINAL two. This week Ben says I love you to TWO girls. TWO girls -- that has never happened! This week we are one week closer to an engagement. This week is the biggest week.
I'm writing this as I watch and my predictions are as following: I'm guessing that Caila goes home. Lauren wins and Jojo is the next Bachelorette. What do you think? The actual result is at the bottom, so if you don't want a spoiler, stop reading now.
Here are my date recaps and thoughts about these ladies:
Caila: The first date of the week. In my Bachelor knowledge, the first date is the date going home. It was super weird watching Ben recount his feelings for Caila. He was so awkward about her and it makes me think she's for sure going home. PS. Is it a requirement that the girls don't wear shirts? Back to Caila -- this boat ride is so damn awkward. She is so weird. Oh Ben, you are so intuitive, questioning whether or not Caila has something on her mind. And Caila, we get it, you don't want to live with regrets. Let's move on.
Maybe its just me but I feel like everything Caila says is so scripted. It's like every response is super thought out and calculated. I am not feeling her. And don't even get me started on the over night. Its so funny to me that everyone acts like they don't know its coming or they don't now what its about. Cue the fireworks pre-over night while making out on the bed, thats pretty.... cliche? We'll leave it at that.
Lauren: Frontrunner. Two words: baby turtles. Oh my gosh, Ben prayed for the turtles. I am dead. Baby turtles. The girls are totally rocking the crop top dresses tonight. I am loving Lauren's pink little ensemble. This might sound weird, but Ben and Lauren are obsessed with each other. I don't know if its in an unhealthy way, but this whole "you're too good for me thing" as we gaze into each others eyes and then make out, makes it seem like they are just infatuated.
Couldn't Chris at least write the overnight date cards differently? The same phrase for all three girls. Come Chris- you're better than that. I guess it's good that it's not the same fantasy suite. Ben, this is going to be so bad. You cannot tell two people you're in love. Guys, you cannot do this. Chris get in there and stop this. If you don't pick Lauren now, you're mean Ben.
Jojo: I still haven't figured out whether or not her name is spelled Jojo or JoJo. Do you guys have any insight? His heart is with Lauren and he's going on a date with JoJo. Oh lordy. JoJo speaking the words of every person everywhere, "are you allowed to say that?" I'll answer that for you. No Ben, you are not supposed to say that! Especially twice.
This whole love saga is throwing me for a huge loop. One of these poor girls is just going to be wrecked. The more I watch JoJo, I love her more and more. Kristen, this is crazy - its inhumane. Adam is killing me with the commentary tonight, every time Ben says I love you, he laughs.
Oh no Caila, what are you doing there and why are you so smiley. The Producers of this show are equally evil. Ben doesn't want to hold her hand. He doesn't even want to hug her. This is so awkward. Wow, Caila, you handled that way better than I would have. Props to you girl. And your hair still looks on point.
JoJo, you are stunning. Lauren, you are gorgeous too.
Chris Harrison is dying as they both say Ben said I love you back. See you all at the woman tell all!
Bye, bye Caila.
