The Bachelor: Season 21: Nick, Again.

January 4, 2017

We are back. Can you believe it? I'm pretty sure the Bachelor airs more times in a year than Keeping up with the Kardashians, which is almost impossible. But, here we are. This is Nicks fourth time on some version of the Bachelor. Runner up with Andi. runner up with Kaitlyn, dumped Jen and now Chris decided it would be a good idea for him be the one. He has been coined the most hated Bachelor in History. What are your thoughts? Were you glad to see Nick back? I for one am undecided.

If you're new around here, welcome! A little about me. I love the Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise so much that I blog about it every week. I don't have time to do laundry, but you better believe I have two hours Monday night to blog along. If you don't like the Bachelor, feel free to skip my Wednesday posts. They don't last for long and they're usually pretty funny. Plus, Adam commentates (he doesn't know though, so please don't tell him if you see him).

I'm changing things up a little bit, I'm gonna be posting on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. I need a little extra time to make the post just right. And, I might only post every other week-- except when I told my friend that, she said that was a bad idea and she wanted a post every week. Thoughts? I need your insight! I'm going to try and tweet more Monday nights so make sure to find me there (kristengrace1)

Adam is convinced that this is going to be the worst season in the history of bachelor. And that is saying a lot because I think he secretly likes watching with me. Yes, he reads the WSJ the entire time, but I know he secretly has one eye on the TV. He even asked if we should play fantasy bachelor. He's hooked.

Let's get to the episode. The first episode is always a little anti-climactic for me. We meet the girls, realize they're all at least 10 years younger than the lead and discover new job titles, like aspiring dolphin trainer, that is not a thing.

Ben, Chris and Sean gossiping about Nick while drinking what is supposed to look like whiskey, but I would assume is some kind of diet pop. I think we could turn this season into a pretty intense drinking game. Every time someone says. "I hated you" or some version of hate/despise or when someone says "Fourth times a charm" DRINK. His last name is vile? If you forgot, all italics are Adam.

Does anyone make the connection that Andi was an attorney and so is the first girl Rachel? Hmm, curious (and she gets the first impression rose? I'm sensing a type).

Oh my gosh, the special needs teacher, break my heart, she is so sweet and those kids are so cute. Josephine, no. Gosh, the girls are so young this year, isn't he like 40? 

Corine is gorgeous, but I think she is going to be the shit stirrer and is probably only here to get Instagram famous. Betches on Instagram posted a photo saying "All the girls that get sent home the first night are just sad they cant sell tea on Instagram now" That is Corinna to a t!

Danielle, the baby nurse seems really normal - I'm sending her to top 4 status. Of course there is a girl that Nick already knows and slept with. Way to create drama right off the bat.

I'm calling it, this is going to be the worst season.

Expectations are pretty low over here people. Danielle is a stunner and he's impressed. Christen is a little celebrity nuts. Law school graduate is not a career - trust me. Balls, beard massages and the hotdog in the book, yikes. I'm starting to agree with Adam that this season might be a little bad.

Why is this season so sexual? I liked it before when it was all latent tension with no actual sex talk. Oh my gosh, the shark/dolphin, that cannot be real.

Oh god, this whole thing is highly unfortunate. Corinne is going to be the crazy girl.

I think it is so funny when girls act all surprised when one girls steals Nick and start talking crap. Ladies, we know you've seen this, you know what is going to happen. Man up. Yes, Jasmine, congrats, you are the first to cry! Rachel, first rose! Yeah girl!

Babe, I just don't think this is gonna be a good one.

My picks for top 4: Danielle L. Danielle M., Rachel, Astrid. Let's be real, this is the first season I don't see a super top front runner.

Alright, that was it. How ya feeling? Here's who went home. I don't know who anyone is yet, so this doesn't mean a lot, but byyyy felicas.

Olivia, Angela, Briana, Ida Marie, Jasmine B., Lauren, Michelle and Susannah.

  1. I always love your Bachelor/Bachelorette posts and glad you're waiting until Wednesdays. Unfortunately I have to stay off Twitter since i'm on the west coast and can't watch until later. Oddly enough the very few times I didn't watch was Andi's season and then I stopped mid-way through Kaitlynn's season so basically all my Nick knowledge is Bach Pad. Not super thrilled about this season, but like a train wreck, I can't not watch.

  2. Hahahaha I love your insight. I watch every season no matter who it is!

  3. Oh this season is going to be a hot mess! I can't wait, and I love your recaps!

  4. lol I'm watching the episode now and holy cow this season has some serious crazies on it. Just wow....

  5. Ok Kristen, another round of The Bachelor, let's go! Let me just say, I hate this man. And now I think I hate him even more. It's like Chris or ABC told him to act a certain way bc I don't believe a dang word that's coming out of his mouth! I'm watching bc I know something will happen, I mean, it's Nick after all. It should be very interesting, that's for sure.

  6. Man, this season is gonna be crazy. I do not like Corrine. I want her to go away haha.

    xoxo, Jenny

  7. Ok, I recently found your blog and now I'm following on Twitter so I can keep up with your Bachelor talk. :) Nick's exactly the type of guy I always fall for (and why I no longer date. lol I have terrible taste in men!), so it'll be fun to watch his season. Corinne and her "platinum vagine" comment had me gagging, as well as the girl who asked 'what a girl with no undies says'. I think Danielle M is really sweet (but Danielle L seems more his type), Rachel seems perfectly normal (and very Type A), Vanessa appears to be a great catch, and I loved Sarah's intro. I can't wait for the worst season ever! lol

  8. I am so obsessed with this season already! I really love it and think it's going to be awesome! I have a post with all my thoughts coming out on friday! Totally agree I have no idea who top 4 it even going to be!

  9. I love your Bachelor recaps, they're always so funny! I also don't understand why they had to make everything super sexual right off the bat either!

  10. I think Corrine is going to be the Courtney (from Ben F's season) of this season!


I love hearing from all of you and greatly appreciate all your feedback and comments! xx Kristen
