If you haven’t read my post from last week than you probably don’t know that I will be doing weekly recaps of each weeks episode of the Bachelorette. I am a huge fan of the show and have been for over 10 years, so I thought I’d start collecting my thoughts about each weeks episode.
Is it just me or is this season already great? I typically find the first couple of weeks kind of slow going, or just full of plain nonsense but so far I am really liking this season.
Episode one is always a snooze fest for me, it’s an episode that I almost wish didn’t happen but at the same time you need it to happen, so I just wish they would change how they do the first episode. Spruce it up a little bit. Give it a new twist.
However, with that said I was honestly intrigued the whole time during Beccas first episode, maybe because it wasn’t as cheesy as what it has been in the past.
Anyway, that brings me to week two.
One on One Date
I’m going to start with the one on one date. I loved it. I love Blake and I love Blake and Becca together.
If you don’t remember Blake was one of the contestants that actually met Becca live, on after the final rose and he came in on a horse. For his “limo” entrance he came in on an ox. Boy knows how to stand out!
Anyway, I think he is so cute and just a genuine guy. I think he is absolutely there for the right reasons. He’s the right amount of sensitive, mixed with quirky, mixed with charming. He is and has been in my top 3 100%.
In my opinion their date was a little weird, only because it was a date with a guy, but it was all about her old guy. Kind of awkward for Blake if you ask me, but they looked like they had so much fun. And honestly getting your anger out by smashing things, hitting things, breaking things…. It truly works. Why do you think I go boxing once a week.
Formal Group Date
Let the drama begin.
Okay these relay race type dates happen every season now, and yea they’re fun to watch but again,. come on ABC, change it up just a little bit so it’s not so predictable.
The standout from this group date was absolutely Lincoln. Lincoln was another one of the guys that met beck live on After the Final Rose, and I’m not going to lie I really liked him then. I really did. But maybe it was just his accent that lured me in, made me think he was going to be one of the good ones.
But after this weeks episode I am no longer on team Lincoln. I don’t necessarily think what he was doing with the picture was to rub it in the other guys’ faces. BUT the guys asked him numerous times to put the photo away, they really didn’t want to stare at a photo of the girl they’re all also dating with another guy.
Lincoln should have just put the photo away during the date and everyone would have been happy.
But that wasn’t the case. Connor, in particular was so over staring at the picture and threw the picture over the balcony, and into the pool. Too far? I think so. I know alcohol is flowing, you’re agitated so you act out of anger. But throwing the picture over the balcony into the pool really wasn’t cool Connor.
I honestly found this date quite boring… To the point where I don’t remember much of the date. There just wasn’t anyone on this date that really stood out to me.
I know front runner Garrett was on the date but even he was kind of just in the background.
Leo came off as arrogant during this date, so it’ll be interesting to see how he is over the next few weeks.
Wills got the rose, and I think that was just a safe choice, but his one on one time was very sweet.
There’s always one. Every season there is one person that is on that’s really just there for comedic relief. I don’t know how else to describe it.
Was there any need to strip down to your skivvies and then be wrapped in a fuzzy pink blanket the rest of the night? Put your clothes on man. We get it you’re a male model, and you’re just insanely better than everyone else because of it.
My main man Colton!
Tia?! Who knew! I need to know everyone else thoughts on this. Obviously hearing this would totally suck, especially since Tia and Becca are friends. BUT here is my two cents on this.
- Colton is a virgin. I know Becca doesn’t know this yet, but we know it from the full season preview. So with that we know that he didn’t sleep with Tia.
- Tia is on next weeks episode so I know she will clear the air.
- The world is so small people date people, and then they end up dating other people who know the same people. It’s life. I think Colton is genuine and I don’t think he dated Tia, for publicity and I don’t think he dated Tia thinking she was going to be the Bachelorette.
I’m still rooting for Colton. He’s still my number one.
My Top three stands at Colton, Garrett and Blake.
That’s all for this week! I’ll see you for my week 3 recap next week!
