Sorry this recap is so late! I was enjoying some time off and if you can believe it, I didn't watch the The Bachelorette for two whole weeks!! I know, what is wrong with me?! If I'm being honest, I thought about it everyday and how much I was missing it. #addict
So week 5 started with the return of Chad. This was totally producer influenced because once you are eliminated, you are not allowed to return to the house. I am shocked that he didn't go back to that house and deck someone. He is one challenging guy. However, I thought the guys reaction to Alex getting the rose was awesome! Throwing a party, OH YEAH!
Was anyone sad to see Daniel or James F. leave? We never really got to know either of them but it was obvious to me right from the beginning neither would have chemistry with JoJo. Afterall, Daniel "has a better chance of getting struck by lightening while, you know, shaving my face" than JoJo being the one for him.
Jordan is the obvious front runner this season. Him and JoJo had instant chemistry. But like Derek, I don't trust him. I think he thinks this is a game and not taking it seriously. Did you know that he didn't even apply to be on the show? About a week before filming started he was contacted by the producers to be on the show. I wonder why out of all men in the world they chose him? When JoJo confronted him about rumors from an ex-girlfriend, I thought he was going to blow his lid. He had the "oh-crap" look on his face. I don't feel like he was truthful in his response to JoJo. If she chooses him, it scares me. I don't see them lasting forever, just because I don't think he is quite ready for marriage.
I hate gossip magazines, because that's all they are. Hurtful, untrue, GOSSIP! The guys read too much into the article. I almost feel bad for her ex because what he said was likely taken out of context. Look at the sub-article that says, "JoJo" Never Really Loved Ben". We know this is a straight up lie. Sometimes throughout this season I still think she is in love with him. Anyways, Those magazines are dumb and I can't believe people still waste money on them. I understand JoJo's hurt though. Whether it was her ex trying to spread rumors or the magazine starting them, no one deserves the hurt that she must've felt. Poor lady!
Surfing on sand dunes?!?! Sign me up! I didn't even know that was a thing. It was awesome that the date started out chill so JoJo's mind could be taken off the drama.
What's with the guys reading into things this episode? Maybe they are getting bored but I thought it was super rude that they were bugging Derek about getting the group date rose because JoJo said he needed reassurance. Especially Alex. Calling Derek an "insecure little b***h" and calling it a pity rose, sent me over the edge. Who says that?! Alex needs to go.
Robby and JoJo have serious chemistry. He is romantic, sensitive, intelligent, not to mention HOT!!! Did you see those abs?! The way that JoJo looks at him makes my heart happy for her. It's a look of being smitten and love. Speaking of that, he is the first guy to tell JoJo that he was in love with her. I foresee him making it far this season.
I wish we would've got to know Vinny better this season - he seems like he would be quite the character. But sadly he was eliminated this week along with Grant and Evan (YAYYYY!). We will get to watch all three guys on Bachelor in Paradise this summer, so maybe we will get to know Vinny better.
That's all for this episode. Week 6 recap is coming right up! :)
