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 Bachelorette Week 4...Chad likes milk

Week 3 and week 4 back-to-back?! I LOVE IT!

I cannot stand Evan! Him always being the one who interrupts JoJo and Chad's time is stupid and he plays the victim card. To be honest, I wouldn't have been sad if Evan left before Chad. When Evan got the rose on the group date in the last episode, he made a comment about how happy his kids are that he got a rose and made out with JoJo. I wanted to crawl under my coffee table out of embarrassment for him. Such a weird thing to say.

Derek, on the other hand, I love! I cannot get over how well he handled the convo with Chad. He is so calm, honest, and confident. That guy knows how to handle conflict. Chad, I hope you were taking notes buddy.

The infamous Bachelor/ette hottub made it's first appearance of the season. What a fun first date for Luke and JoJo! Luke is so soft spoken and kind, but very mysterious at the same time. JoJo said it well - he has a relaxed confidence about him. The story of his friend Jason's death and what he learned from losing such a special person was really beautiful. He is so open and romantic. Might as well through him into the mix for potential Bachelor's if JoJo doesn't choose him.

It is very obvious that JoJo is into Jordan. The way she interacts with him is very different than the way she interacts with the other guys. She gives him subtle special treatment that I don't think the guys have picked up on. Sneaky, sneaky!

In my first blog post of the season I said that I really like Alex. Ever since I said those words, I have become less and less impressed with him. I don't know if it's because he is so short or because he was in the military but he puts on a tough guy persona when interacting with Chad. He's another one of those guys that knows how to push Chad's buttons. I also don't see a connection between him and JoJo either. We will see how long he lasts.

JoJo's no BS demeanor when she talks to Chad, especially the last convo they had together, is nothing short of amazing. She was so done with him but wasn't letting him off the hook that easy. He is a scary, scary guy and I certainly hope that the other guys got a restraining order from him after filming was done. Oh, and did everyone catch that Chad likes milk???

SPOILER ALERT: Chad is on the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise!!! So. Many. Feelings.

Stoked for Monday's night episode. Slightly scared for the other guys again but once the Chad drama ends, maybe it'll be smooth sailing from here on out. Ha! Kidding! With this glorious show, there is ALWAYS drama! ;0

The Bachelorette Week 3...Some yab yum, toe tapping, & tattling

Holy smokers! Ladies, you have kept me so busy with our massive Facebook sale that I haven't had a chance to recap the last two weeks of The Bachelorette! What a travesty! 

Ok, so what happened a mere two weeks ago...

At the beginning of the season, I thought JoJo's group was slim pickings. But every time there is a one-on-one date I'm think, "Oh my gosh! I love him! Pick him! Or don't but hopefully he's the next Bachelor!", haha! 

Angergasm - yep, that's a new word for me. For a first date, how awkward would that have been?! At least JoJo and Chase were such great sports. Chase is hot! And he is a total man's man. He and JoJo had some serious chemistry. I felt like I was violating their privacy watching them yab yum or yim yam. Anyone remember what it's called??? :$

That group date though. SO. MUCH. DRAMA. We'll get back to that.

Mr James Taylor - he is such a southern gentleman. Even his name sounds southern and gentleman like. I'm happy he got a rose but I don't think he and JoJo have much chemistry. He is the type of guy she wants to fall in love with but I just don't think it's there. Don't get me wrong, I think she definitely likes him but I only see those two as friends, sadly.

Let's talk the Chad drama. Evan and some of the other guys do nothing but push Chad's buttons, which really annoyed me. They bite into him and allow the conflict to continue to happen. Then they go to JoJo and Chris Harrison and act like babies that do nothing but tattle, so in a way I can understand why Chad gets irritated. Evan could have shared so many entertaining stories during the group date because of his job but instead he just yaps about how steroids affect your testosterone levels blah, blah, blah, basically insinuating Chad does uses steroids. Little naive Evan thought he could get away with it, but Chad let him have it.

Chad is so volatile! He is so full of anger and hatred. Has he said one normal thing this season or has it just been snide, douchy comments? His stare could kill it's so intimidating. And why he thinks resorting to violence is the answer to every single conflict is absolutely terrifying. HE PUNCHED A METAL DOOR for goodness sake AND threaten to kill! That is a temper if I ever did see one. 

Ahhhh, the drama. Thank goodness we only had to wait 24 hours to see what happens next. :)

The Bachelorette Week 2...A bunch of dudes and one big Meathead

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!!!
