Happy Hump Day y’all!
On Monday night, we had our weekly girls night in to watch the Bachelor, drink wine, and eat some yummy food. I seriously look forward to this every week. Now, let’s get to why you are really here and that’s for a Bachelor Recap.
The first 1:1 Date went to Lauren B., the card said “The sky’s the limit”. The first part of the date, is a simple flight in a bi-plane, because that is totally normal. After that, they find a hot tub in the middle of no where. They seem to have a good conversation and Lauren B is just adorable. During dinner, Lauren says, “I can’t wait to meet your parents”, then realizes what just came out of her mouth. #whoops After dinner, and a private concert Lauren B. gets a rose.
Back at the house Caila is having a meltdown about Ben going on dates with other girls. We all know she has watched the Bachelor before, and she should know how this whole thing works. I’ve watched plenty of seasons of the Bachelor/Bachelorette and it is ALWAYS the same song and cry dance about them going on other dates. You are here with 15 other girls, what did you think was going to happen???
Now it’s time for the group date, “Love is the Goal”, for Rachel, Lace, Twins, Lauren H., Leah, Amber, Shusanna (Russian), Amanda, Jami and Jennifer. I really didn’t think the date wasn’t all that interesting; they played soccer, the twins were on separate teams, and the winning team continued on the date. Rachel faked an injury. . . maybe she didn’t, but it was a factor in her team losing. After the game, the winning team went to a rooftop, Olivia stole Ben, #shocker, and Amber received a rose, which is what I was most shocked about.
The second 1:1 date went to Jubilee, the card said “Love is in the air”. Ben arrived 20 minutes late for their date and Jubilee was less than jubilant about that. One of the girls described the situation perfectly when she said Jubilee was #awkotaco. A helicopter arrives to take them on their date, and Jubilee said “Does anyone else want to go on this date?”. EVERY girl raised their hand, and then put a target on Jubilee’s back.
They arrived at the spa and Jubilee opened up to say that she is OBSESSED with hotdogs. Honestly, who other than a 5 year old is obsessed with hotdogs??
Once Jubilee really started to open up, I started to feel bad for her. This chick has had it rough, and the other girls in the house have no idea. At the end of the date, Jubilee received a rose.
Now, onto the cocktail hour and Rose Ceremony. Ben came in looking extrembly somber and told the girls that two close family friends passed away unexpectedly. A lot of the girls showed him compassion, and Olivia told him that she hates her legs and to her, it’s the scariest thing ever. Really Olivia, that is what you are going to talk to him about??? His reaction says it all.
Like every Rose Ceremony, there is always some drama and I love that Lauren H. and Leah want nothing to do with it. Good job keeping it classy, ladies.
Lace decides that it time for her to go home and “work on herself”. I have to applaud her for that and being super honest. Jami and the Russian don’t get a rose, and head home as well.
Next week, they go to VEGAS! Maybe the twins will be their tour guide?
Have you been watching this season? If so, who is your favorite? I would love to know!
