After a dreadful one week hiatus, The Bachelorette is back and started out with Alex being sent home!!! I mean, could the episode have started off on a better note?! Their road trip seemed so awkward - Alex was feeling it but you could tell JoJo wasn't. They didn't kiss when they first greeted one another then JoJo wouldn't even Pringle kiss him...ummm, ouch! Then they got to spoon the horse (hey, it's the professional goucha's words, not mine;)) and that was just as awkward. Those two just didn't have any chemistry.
Alex telling JoJo that he was in love with her was cringe worthy. He initially said, "I think I'm falling in love with you", then corrects himself and says, "I know I'm falling in love with you". To me, he just said that to further advance himself in the "competition" and I really appreciate JoJo's completely legit concerns about what she said in response to him. She has such a graceful and real way to breakup with guys and she handled Alex's feistiness perfectly. Bye Alex!!
All I could think of during Jordan and JoJo's grape squashing date is that I hope Jordan picked the toe jam out of his feet, haha! I have really doubted Jordan's intentions throughout this season - I talked about it in last week's recap. But by far, JoJo and Jordan have the most chemistry. The way she looks and smiles at him reminds me of a giddy school girl in love. We haven't seen Jordan open up a lot this season until this episode but in this episode he certainly did. I still have my doubts about him but he earned a few points in my book this week.
Robby (looking out the window at the pouring rain): "Man, it's a little different than yesterday."
Jordan: "Yeah, how does that affect the possibilities of today?"
Robby: "I'm going have my boots on."
Did everyone else catch that exchange? I laughed so hard! :p
I'm glad they were rained out! The stay-cation date was awesome! Stuffing french fries in James' mouth, truth or dare, group massages, and bedtime snuggles provided some great entertainment.
The convos we got to see with the guys on the group date seemed really deep. I was trying to guess who JoJo was going to give the group date rose to but I really had no idea. There is something sketchy about Robby that I think we'll get to see next week but for now, he deserved that rose just as much as the other two guys. Although it was really depressing seeing how defeated Chase and James Taylor were when they didn't receive it.
LUKE! Have I mentioned how much I love him?! He was so in his element on this date and it was HOT! Watching him handle the horses and teaching JoJo skeet shoot melted my heart! Your's too?! I was just disappointed that their date only had about 10 minutes airtime. :(
JoJo sending Mr. James Taylor home was heartbreaking. We all know they didn't have chemistry but he was such a kind, genuine guy that it's hard seeing him leave. His exit was one of the most real and sincere exits we have seen in a really long time. She cried. He cried. The whole world cried. :(
Next week is hometowns and it's going to be dramatic. Check out these tweets from Bachelor franchise creator Mike Fleiss tweeted while they were filming:
...yikes!!! Can't wait until Monday!
I'm going to leave you with this hilarious rap. Enjoy!
