The first group date of the season kind of annoyed me. It was so cheesy! Her jumping out of the firetruck and "fighting" the "fire" was too much for me to handle. And then she needed to be "saved" by one of her suitors, but was eventually saved by a legit firefighter. Real shocker there!
Starting off the evening portion of the first group date, I love that JoJo grabbed Wells first before a guy pulled her aside. Their convo seemed to be easy and chill. I'm not surprised he got the group date rose (come on, he just about died on the date!). I'm guessing he will be around for a few more weeks but I don't see a romantic connection between the two.
I love Luke. That's that.
What a cool date that JoJo and Derek had and it was something that I don't recall seeing on previous seasons. I suck at making choices so this date would have been a struggle for me! But enough about me. ;) Derek just seems like such a genuine guy. He has been hurt before but hearing JoJo relate to him made their connection stronger. I'm glad he got a rose. Hopefully he can stick around for awhile.
The ESPN date was AWESOME!! The challenges was such a fun idea and great ice breaker; I mean, who doesn't love to let loose and do a touchdown dance. ;) But all good things must come to an end, at least if Chad is on the date. But more of that later.
JAMES TAYLOR! Now that is a gentleman. The note he wrote for JoJo I'm sure melted everyone's heart. He wasn't one of my front runners initially but now he sure is. That guy certainly deserved the group date rose.
OK, let's talk about Chad (and his meat ;p). Did anyone understand his logic about "nice guys" or his logic about the men and protein shakes? I can't seem to wrap my head around that one. He thinks he is this perfect alpha male that is going to win this competition. First mistake right there. Chad thinks he is so charming and it's driving me bonkers seeing JoJo possibly fall for that. What about him constantly eating meat?! I'm no vegetarian but just thinking of the assortment he ate in one night makes me want to vomit.
However, Alex needs to calm down! He is focusing way too much on his relationship with Chad and not enough on JoJo and that just may bite him in the behind. Literally (did you see the preview for next week?!).
Regardless, it's going to get real interesting real fast. Don't forget to set your PVR's for not only Monday, but also Tuesday! Double The Bachelorette next week. Yipppeee!!!
