The Bachelorette...The Men Tell All

Oh boy, oh boy! Where to even start???

Where did Santa Clause, I mean Nick, come from?! He told Alex basically everything I was thinking this entire season. What I didn't realize was the amount of animosity there was between Alex and Derek. I guess there was other drama they had to focus on this season.

Ok, let's talk Chad. The only thing I think I have ever agreed with was his comment about people going on the show to move their careers forward (Alex = model; James Taylor = singer; Wells = radio host). But is there anything wrong with that? So many people have went on the show, including, James Taylor and Wells, with what I believe are pure intentions, and yes, if the show helps move their career forward SO BE IT! He's a real estate agent. Does he not think he is going to get more business from being on the show?

 

Chad is really one of a kind. I think him dating not one, but TWO other cast members ex-girlfriends shows what kind of person he is - that is a really shallow thing to do. His need to resort to violence is terrifying. His threats are empty (afterall, he was going to hunt Jordan down after the show and bring him "candy"). Saying he has dirt on James Taylor and Wells is cowardly. JoJo was right about him just wanting attention - he doesn't deserve it.

For being such a little guy, Wells seems to be one of the most well respected men this season. He is the one person who didn't have a problem with calling Chad on his crap. All season, including during The Men Tell All, Chad listened to what he had to say and never challenged or threatened Wells (that we saw at least). Like Wells said, it was unfortunate that the Chad drama got some much airtime that we didn't get to know a lot of the guys but hey, it wouldn't be reality TV if there wasn't any drama, right?! ;)

"Sometimes you choose apples when you should've chose pickles." I have no idea what this means but I think I may have to add it to my vocab, haha! Thanks for that Chad! :p

Uggghhhhh, Luke! Such a well spoken gentleman. For him to say that it's ok for him to experience the pain and heartbreak he had in order for JoJo to find love and happiness was so kind. He is also very articulate and understands that it kind of was his fault as to why he didn't get a rose. Wouldn't he make such a GREAT Bachelor?! I feel like they already have been setting him up to be the next Bachelor - they never showed him being involved in the drama throughout the season, he didn't go to Paradise, he has the right demeanor, and everyone loves him! #lukeforbachelor

Chase really impressed me during The Men Tell All. He seemed so deep and in tune with his feelings. Hearing that he ultimately didn't regret telling JoJo that he loved her was a great thing to hear. Having regrets is never a good thing, especially when you are putting yourself in such a vulnerable position, such as being on a show that 10 million people watch per week.

JoJo had to answer some tough questions from the guys but she really knocked it out of the park. And the way she handled Chad and his ridiculously inappropriate comments about Robby and Jordan was a serious mic-drop moment! You go girl!

Phew! I didn't think I had that many thoughts about The Men Tell All! ;) Next week is the finale and the premiere of Bachelor in Paradise (thank-you preview for giving away one of the engagements - did you catch who it is?), which is sure to not disappoint! 

Chat soon!

The Bachelor Recap...The Women Tell All

The best part about writing a recap for all you is that I get to rewatch the episodes GUILT FREE! Makes me feel a little bit better ;)

I don't understand why they invite majority of the women back for the women tell all, especially the ones that were let go week one and two and even three. They have nothing to say because they don't know anything about the season, until they watch it like you and I.

Side note: was it really necessary for Tiara to bring a chicken?!

Normally I find it unacceptable and rude to boo anyone but Leah had it coming to her. Her reaction to any comment that was made to her on the Women Tell All made her sound like a snob and I would've liked to see them spend more time on the Leah drama of the season. I am not a fan of this woman. That is all.

What do you think of the Jubilee drama that happened on air? Do you believe Jami, Amber, and Shushanna when they said Jubilee had made an offensive comment about being "the real black girl" or do you believe Jubilee when she claims she never said that? My jaw hit the floor when Miss Leah piped in with her eye roll and told Jami to get over it! If I were Jami, that would have offended me way more than Jubilee's initial comment.

I'm so happy Jubilee was able to open up and explain herself. She seemed to be in a much better place emotionally. I wasn't a huge fan of her's on the show but my liking definitely did increase.

Random thought: I wonder how they decide where the ladies sit during the Women Tell All taping. Sometimes it seems as if they seat the ladies in the order in which they were eliminated and other times they don't. Have you ever thought the same thing? :)

I don't have much to say about Lace. If you recall, she was on an episode of Bachelor Live where she had to opportunity to talk about her experience and update on what has been going on in her life. However, I will say that the weird tattoo dude was totally staged - it was way too obvious.

It will also be interesting to see how she copes with being on Bachelor in Paradise. Maybe she will surprise us and be like Ashley S. (onion girl) and be normal. 

I have to admit something - I felt bad for Olivia on the Women Tell All. She may have been aggressive and made an inappropriate comment or ten to the other women but she was bullied a lot in the house and behind her back, not to mention the cyber bullying she was thrown into while the show was airing. People can have their opinions, people can even despise her, but their is no reason to bully and put her down so low that she can't even go on social media. 

When I decided I was going to do a recap blog, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't personally attack any of the cast members because it is wrong, it is hurtful, and I never know who might be reading my words. I believe words can hurt more than actions. Women should praise and raise each other up, not tear each other down, so before you hit send on that rude comment, take a second to rethink how you would feel if you were on the receiving end of it. That is one of the ways I edit my posts.  

OK. Rant over. <3

I am in love with Caila's black jumpsuit she wore on the Women Tell All; so much so I did a little research. Although I couldn't find the exact jumpsuit, here are a couple that are quite similar. Match it with a pair of shoes from Pretty Little Shoes and you'll look hot, hot, hot! :)

Caila really is a class act. Even through heartbreak, she carries herself so well and remains so composed. I admire her. I said it in last week's recap and I will say it again, my money is on Caila being the next Bachelorette.

Talking about class acts, Ben Higgins certainly is one as well. Those ladies had some tough questions for him and he answered them all so well. Scratch that. So perfectly.

BLOOPERS!!! Oh my goodness! So funny! In case you missed them or just want to watch them again, I have included it here for your viewing pleasure. :)

Next week is the finale! So excited to see how Ben's love story concludes. Who is your choice for Ben? Lauren or JoJo?

Until next week,

xo
