The Bachelor: Episode 7 - Everyone went home.

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

I'm taking a little blogging break. Just need some time to let the inspiration come to me. I will be posting bachelor blogs because honestly I LOVE them. I'll be back in exactly two weeks with regularly scheduled posts. I have some AMAZING new recipes for you guys and some great clothes!

Okay, so the title is absolutely misleading. Not everyone went home this week, but they might has well. I can honestly say I'm not sure if this is going to work out for Nick.

I have three outcome possibilities; (1) he's going to pick someone out of the blue and it won't last long enough to get to the final rose (2) he's going to Juan Pablo us and not propose but want to "continue dating outside the show" or (3) reject everyone and fail at this for a fourth time.

We start back with the result of the two-on-one: Corrinne and Nick are blissfully sipping champs and satisfying each other egos when Taylor walks in. Taylor is pretty ballsy about her feelings and gives it all to Nick and I think she did a pretty good job in sticking up for herself. And to the dismay of the public, Corrinne did not go home at the end of their conversation. Nick goes back to Corrinne to let her know that he's still "interested" in her and then they make-out. Corrinne doesn't seem the slightest bit interested in what Taylor had to say, in fact Corrinne doesn't even seem to be listening to Nick when he talks. She just wants to kiss him.

It's clear that Nick and Corrinne's relationship is primarily sexual. If you compare the TV time their date gets versus anyone else's date, there is literally no talking, just kissing. Let's compare: with Rachel we were able to explore her family dynamic and learn so much more about her. With Vanessa we heard all about her previous relationship and things got very emotional for her and Nick. Raven, same story, she even met his family. With Corrinne, we just watch them make out, and while I'm sure that will keep them going for a while, it will not sustain them. I can guarantee that Nick would have never taken Corrinne to her hometown date.

No cocktail party is always a problem. How many times do I have to watch Corrinne chug her champagne, it's just cuz I'm jealous, I started sober February over again. Whitney is so darling, I really hope she gets some more air time this week.

Spoiler Alert: Shark girl (Alexis), Jaimi and Vienna's look alike go home.

Holy moly, I want to go to St. Thomas. I am dying for a beach vacation. I really wish I could get married again (to Adam, duh) and go on our honeymoon in Grand Cayman again. Ugh. Anything to get some color. Excuse me while I go spray tan.

The worst part about the Bachelor is when they make the girls yell the leads name from a balcony. Without fail, it happens every single time. Balcony at the mansion? Check. Balcony at some huge resort? Check. Man alive. By now we get it ABC. But back to the episode - landing on water would be so awesome!

The first one-on-one: I'm a little surprised he picked Kristina. I understand, we are getting to the point in the season where they aren't many options left for one on ones and to double pick makes it too obvious. That actually happened to Nick in Andi's season. But, Kristina is so beautiful. They seem to be attracted to each other, but I am not really seeming them mesh. I can't tell if they're a good fit. I'm interested to hear more about her life.

I read somewhere that they don't eat the food. They have their day date, go back to their hotel, change, do interviews, and eat, alone. Then, when they come together they don't eat because the mics pick up the sound of them chewing. So Nick making the joke about "lobster for the lady" is hilarious because he knows for sure that they don't eat the food. Instead they just get to watch it get cold and then taken away. Man. What a waste.

Listening to Kristina's story is so incredibly sad. She is a tough cookie. She seems to have it all together. I really enjoy listening to her. They seem to really enjoy each other. But, I still do not see her as his happily ever after.

Poor Lorna, she is wayyyy too good for Corrinne. And Corrinne is a damn joke. Time for her to go. The comedic relief she provides takes away any amount of integrity this show might have.

Group Date: Let's do this. Does anyone feel like this is Ben's pig-island date? Or Andi's wrestling group date where the guy got hurt? Or Chris Soules when he made them ride tractors? It appears that whenever the lead attempts to do a "fun" date, it backfires like woah.

Corrinne is a hot mess, per usual. That is what my hair looks like fresh out of a workout that hasn't been washing in a week.  Can you tell how drunk she is? Wow. This volleyball game is a horrible idea. Girls have fun with this kinda stuff for like 9 minutes and then they break. Boys, take note. Girls wanna date you, not play volleyball.

The whole getting shit faced on tequila was a horrible idea because now all the girls are emotional and depressed. 

Alright Nick, now it's how you pick up the pieces of this shitstorm you've created. But instead they just cry on the beach alone while he walks away. Now, we just wait until the evening? Man. He doesn't have great mitigation experience does he? It is clear that Nick is very interested in Rachel. I for one lovve how honest she is. She is incredible and he obviously thinks so or else he would have reacted to her the way he did to Jasmine. He cares about how she's feeling.

The more and more I watch Raven, the more I love her. Plus her lime yellow/green dress/romper is incredible. And I think her evaluation of Jasmine is super accurate. She's losing her mind. And we've all watched girls like that implode.

Oh my gosh, shut the f*** up. RE: Jasmine. lolz. Now we watch her implode. She is super agreesive with him and you can tell by his body language that he is not at all interested. She is crying her eyes out and he isn't trying to comfort her or really sympathize. You can see that he's not interested. She just loses it.

Spoiler Alert: Jasmine. So glad I don't have to listen to her anymore. 

Woah, Jasmine, throwing out what everyone is thinking. "I don't think this will work for him." Maybe she knows more than we know.

Two-On-One: Bets on if this is more awkward than Taylor and Corrinne? Probs not I have a feeling they both go home, which would be devasting. I am actually super surprised to see these two girls on this date. Danielle was such a front runner for me and its weird to see her fighting for attention. He's not even looking at Danielle when she speaks on the beach. Before he was super interested in her every word, not he looks bored out of his mind. And Whitney looks nice and cozy on the beach. She's cute, and I absolutely agree with her statement that you get to know someone the more you hang out. He didn't really give her a fair shake. This whole beach scene is not good.

Spoiler Alert: Whitney.

Did you guys see how awkward Nick and Danielle were when they were holding hands? So strange? You can tell from the beginning that this is very awkward and seems very forced. He just seems like he is having a miserable time. She literally said she was falling in love and he looked like he wanted to murder her. Why is he such a weirdo. 

I wish we could take a step back and ask Nick what happened. Like what happened between last week, the group date and today. He's saying that he didn't feel it anymore. Like how does that go away with every girl? I don't get it. I'm not sure I've ever seen a lead break this much.

Watching Danielle trying to process what Nick is saying is so so sad. You can see her thinking back on everything shes's said and done to try and figure out what she did wrong. Adam said it right, but Corrinne is still around? I thought for sure, Danielle would win. 

This is nuts. Spoiler Alert: Danielle goes home.

I honestly don't know at this point who is going to win. I mean looking around the couches, who on earth does he pick? Why would he come tell the girls that he doesn't know if its gonna work? Or if he doesn't know he can keep doing it? Like what does that even mean?

What do you guys think? There are only SIX girls left: Danielle, Kristina, Corrinne, Rachel, Raven and Vanessa. Who do you think he picks?

See ya next week!

The Bachelor: Episode 5: The Infamous Two-On-One

Wednesday, February 1, 2017

Happy February everyone! I usually think January is super slow and dull, but here we are February already! Crazy. This las month went so fast and if that is any indication of how this year is gonna go, then woah.

Today, it is a gorgeous sorta chilly 50 degree day, but it is so sunny. What a great start to February.

Let's start with a little bachelor vent sesh -- I do not like that they are starting with the Rose Ceremonies at the beginning of the episode. I get it ABC, you are attempting to hold peoples attention and suspense enough so it carries through until the next episode, but I do not like it.

This week we start back at the Corrine v. Taylor conversation. Here are my thoughts. Taylor is condescending. But, Corrine is super aggressive and absolutely loses her cool. She wants to chat, but is very bitchy in her presentation.

"It hurts me for Nick." Hahahahahaha. Cue, Corrinne running to Nick to throw Taylor under the bus. Corrine telling Nick that Taylor doesn't say hi when she walks by her in the hall just shows how immature Corrinne is. Ladies, we are not in eighth grade.

Anyways, let's get back to the rose ceremony -- Did anyone see the girls breath while they were at the rose ceremony? That is crazy. ABC, you can't throw a heater in this barn? Really. Come on. Our budget is big enough to decorate a fancy barn, throw some heaters in there.

We lose two ladies tonight. Bummer. I still don't know half of their names. But they gone.

That is my goal this week, to learn their names. But first, these voiceovers of Taylor and Corrinne at the rose ceremony are crazy. Absolutely crazy. Why do they make Corrinne and Taylor stand next to each other at the rose ceremony. Taylor looks so disappointed when she gets the rose! Girl, sack up.

Spoiler Alert: Astrid and Sarah. I thought Sarah was SO cute.

Let's talk abut the girls quick: Like Whitney, who are you? You're a babe, but I do not know you. Danielle, you are still one of the front runners in my mind. Rachel, I like you and I'm pretty sure Nick likes you a lot. Jasmine, you are stunning. Jamie, how are you STILL around?! Josephine, you think Taylor is toxic? How, I need examples. Oh and Jo, your hair looks like Vienna's from Jakes season. Vanessa, you are a front runner too. Alexis, known as shark girl, is always making Nick laugh.

To New Orleans we go! This is so fun. I wanna go there! Hint hint, Adam!

Hey, Rachel, how long are you going to hold out on the first impression rose thing.  It's a good thing you got that one-on-one girl, now it'll give you something else to talk about. The more I watch him and Rachel, the more I love her. She seems very down to earth and real. Here is my thought, she is a bonafide attorney - is she gonna wanna stop that? Yes, Andi did. Even though they have passion, I just don't see it. But damn, she is cute.

It's so funny that they're just locked in a hotel room watching them make out. 

That's pretty cool to have dinner around the floats! Rachel and Nick totally have chemistry, it's undeniable. Oh quit it Nicky-poo. Adam is not sold on his emotional toasts. Her dad is a federal judge? Get it.

Taylor is 23 years old! Corrinne is 24 years old! This is crazy cakes. They are more than TEN years younger. I am not saying that cannot work, but reality TV does not bode well for relationships, let alone one with participants born in different decades.

Ghosts and group dates. I wonder if you can turn down a group data if it's stupid. I'm pretty sure Corrinne would if she could. Raven cracks me up that she's gonna revoke it in the name of Jesus. She is so funny. I like her more and more each week. She is starting to get used to this experience and I think handling it the best.

Sidenote --> Guys, last Kentucky Derby, I thought I wanted to try a mint julep because I thought it was festive. GUYS, STAY AWAY. It was so strong, I was instatenly drunk. Blech.

To the haunted house we go: I don't believe in ghosts, but I do not like being scared. I HATE it. I would have cried on this date. And, when I was little, I wasn't allowed to play the Ouiji board. We're you guys?

Did you guys see all the food Corrinne ordered?! Oh man, I am so jealous of her mac and cheese and all her room service for that matter.

Raven and Nick seem so at ease. I really like watching them together. And this plug for beauty and the beast would seem super dumb if I wasn't SO excited to see the movie. Oh, my gosh. I cannot wait. Watch the trailer below!

It's group date time! Oh my gosh, when Corrinne said Make America Corrinne Again, I couldn't help but laugh. Girl is funny. I swear to everything, if I have to listen to Taylor say she has a masters degree and has a high level of emotional intelligence one more time, I might slap her. I totally get why Corrinne is sick of her.

 Ya know, the more and more I watch, the more I think Corrinne might be great for Nick. They can both be famous and narcissistic together. Taylor is starting to drive me crazy. This would be the worst date. Yikes, can you imagine how awkward this conversation is.

I honestly think Nick doesn't see a future with either Corrinne of Taylor. So it's really no shock that he sent Taylor home. Plus, she always has a resting bitch face. Always.

He seriously is just gonna leave her in the swamp? This is so ridiculous, they just leave her out in the swamp until it's pitch dark. 

Watching Taylor get water sprinkled on her Adam said, I have officially lost any ounce of respect I had for this show. I will not be watching this show any more, okay? Thanks a lot ABC.

Taylor is literally becoming the Chad of JoJo's season. Cue the whistling. Like how the hell does she (Taylor) know where they are. 

Oh my gosh, the bloopers that Alexis thinks seeing Nicholas Cage would be the scariest thing is the funniest thing Ive ever seen. She is so dang funny.

What do we think is gonna happen? Do we think he actually sends Corrinne home? Next week is gonna be so damn good.

I've given up, I just cant do it anymore babe. 

What about you guys? Have you given up like Adam has? What do you think is gonna happen next week? In the preview, all the girls are constantly crying. I for one, cannot wait.
