The Bachelorette

The Bachelorette Week 7...And the rose doesn't go to...

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!

The Bachelorette Week 6...Nooooo! Not Derek!

"Are you guys gonna kiss today?" Way to make it awkward Luke. I think he was foreshadowing for the rest of the week. :)

I hadn't even noticed that Wells and JoJo hadn't kissed until it was made such a big deal this week. Poor guy! She had given him so many signals before he actually kissed her to kiss her. Was it nerves or did he just didn't see them? When they finally kissed, JoJo made such a big deal out of it a and made it more awkward. 

By this point we know the type of guy JoJo is into and Wells doesn't really fit that description. It's sad that he got so excited about the future with her after their kiss, but JoJo just didn't see it and sent him home. The poor guy was completely blindsided. I really hope he finds a sweet girl to spend forever with.

Holy Luke and JoJo! Talk about passion! Watching their make out sesh was one of those times were I felt like I was violating a very intimate moment. I think those two have the most intense chemistry out any one else. He deserved that group date rose, obviously.

Oh Mr. James Taylor. Why oh why did he feel like he have to bring Jordan up during their one on one time? I understand what he was saying about Jordan Rogers being Jordan Rogers (a celebrity) but the whole card game issue and how he apparently acted entitled was a little weird. This episode really showed James' insecurities and I just hope he is able to work through them before it's too late.

JoJo confronted Jordan the wrong way. Why did she have to name James? Maybe she could've have said, "It has been brought to my attention blah, blah, blah." Jordan also handled it, um, odd shall we say? He got so weird! I'm surprised he never ended up sloshing his wine all over himself.

Hold the phone!!! Another two-on-one date?! And one with two guys that I liked?! Be still my heart...this wasn't going to end well. I think it's obvious I like Chase, but I LOVE Derek! He was open with her which she seemed to need. Although it took some work, Chase was super open with her too. It seemed like he wanted to be open but something was holding him back - maybe fear, maybe nerves. 

Her not giving Derek the rose broke my heart. His look and words of hurt and defeat was almost too much for me to handle. He was so confident going into the date and he and JoJo started out so strong. His departure goes to show that you can't draw back throughout the process. I will miss you Derek. :( #mancry

What do all y'all think about her not sending anyone home at the rose ceremony? I've made it pretty clear how I'm not a fan of Alex whatsoever so I would've been happy if she sent him home. I predict next week he will get a one-on-one but won't receive a rose; at least I hope that's what happens. ;)

Did you see the previews for the rest of the season?! It looks soooo dramatic! Yipeee! ;)

Until next week...
