I have a confession…
I have an overly obsessive relationship with all things bachelor.
It’s honestly quite very sad actually how obsessed I am. But everyone has a guilty pleasure… so sorry, not sorry.
I did some research and I have been watching the Bachelor (Bachelorette and all the Bachelor related shows) since Brad Womack’s first season which was in 2007…. I have been watching this franchise since I was 13, and before they all automatically became insta famous.
90%…. no probably 95% of the podcasts I listen to on a regular basis are even bachelor related. Why am I so invested in these people lives you may ask?!
I honestly have no idea ha!
But I’m going to start putting this obsession to work and I will be providing you with my version of weekly recaps of this current season of the bachelorette.
It will cover a quick overview of that weeks episode, my favourite contestants, my thoughts on the episode and the dates and anything else that I may feel the need to include.
Please join me, as I join Becca on her journey to find love.
Week one is always kind of a snooze fest if you ask me. You get a good luck at some contestants but then there are some others that they just kind of pan over and you don’t really start to see them until week 4/5.
However, I already have some favourites, and some not so favourites.
Of the guys that survived week 1 (don’t continue reading if you haven’t watched this weeks episode yet… you’ve been warned) I don’t like Jordan, Jean Blanc or John.
These are just based off first impressions, however I know my impression of Male Model Jordan will not change. Actually maybe I’ll dislike him more. He is the definition of #extra.

Jean Blanc…. His intro video was just so cheesy, and he just seems very superficial. Not my taste, as I don’t think he’s Becca’s long term cup of tea other.
John… To be honest they didn’t show much of John so I may end up liking him but based on the first episode he seems a little bland for my liking.
Right away Colton is my favourite, and I suspect he’ll be top 3, and maybe even be the winner. However, with seeing the season long preview I’m not so sure about that.
But Colton is just a a tall drink of water. *insert heart eyes* *insert drooling emoji*
Not only is he very (very) attractive, but the man seems like he has a heart of gold. I mean he has a charity that helps children that are fighting CF.
Garrett – Another one that I do like who I think will make it very far, and if history repeats itself… Garrett could be the winner.
What do I mean by that? Well the Last three seasons – Kaitlyn, Jojo and Rachel, have all ended up with (and are still with) the guy they gave their first impression rose to. Spoiler alert, but Garrett gets the first impression rose and the first kiss. Winner winner chicken dinner? We’ll find out in 8ish weeks.
Sidenote: I saw today that Garrett is currently under fire for photos he’s liked on Instagram in the past and has since deleted his Instagram. This obviously won’t play out on the show but it’ll be interesting to see what happens with this.
Blake and Ryan are other front runners for me. Such sweet men. They both seem very endearing, and they actually both met Becca live on after the final rose, so last night was their second first impression. Not that either of them are hard to forget.
Blake gives me major Saved by the Bell feels, like look how cute he is.
That’s all for this week. As we get to learn more about the guys and dates start I will give a more in-depth reaction to each week’s episode. But I think this will be a great season!
