The Bachelor – Episode 4 Recap

It’s another week and that means there was another week of Bachelor drama. Like every Monday night, the girls came over for wine, dinner, and to watch the perfect Ben. Normally, I don’t write about what I made, but the girls raved about dinner so I thought I would share a super simple and super yummy dinner with you.

Crock pot Chicken Tacos

What you need:
3-4 Chicken Breasts
1 jar of picante sauce (I used the Target Brand Medium)
1/2 a packet of taco seasoning (You can use more if you like)

How to make:
Place chicken in crockpot (I use slow cooker liners, because less mess)
Pour picante sauce over chicken
Sprinkle taco seasoning
Cook on high for 6 hours
Once it’s done cooking, shred it

I set out taco shells, tostadas, rice, guacamole, and cheese. That way your guests can create their own combos.

Now, that the recipe is out of the way, can I steal you for a minute to read my recap?

This week, the girls headed to “the marriage capital of the world”, Las Vegas.

New York Roots to Southern Boots

Upon arrival, the first 1:1 date card was waiting for them; the lucky recipient was JoJo! Like any normal Bachelor date, a helicopter picked them up, but the poor ABC interns did not plan their table set up too well.

Champagne bottle busted, broken champagne glasses, and a flying table. Good thing, Ben and JoJo survived unscathed, they celebrated by making out behind the table with the rest of the girls watching. Needless to say, the other girls were less than impressed.

After their tour, they sat down and JoJo opened up about her past and let Ben know that she is ready for love. Although I’m still team Lauren B I think JoJo is definitely a contender. Ben proceeded to give JoJo a rose as they capped off their date with a private fireworks show. Elsewhere in hotel suite the twins were pissed and Olivia tries to convince us and herself that she is “zen” with Ben.

While JoJo and Ben are on their date, we learn that the twins do EVERYTHING together; they live together, share a car, have the same job and can share a treadmill.

Next up, group date for Olivia, the twins, Lauren H., Rachel, Jennifer, Calia, Lauren B., Jubilee, Leah, Amber and Amanda. On their group date, they had to perform their hidden talent for a full blown audience. Some of the girls had a legit talent; the twins river danced, Jubilee played the cello, Lauren H. made up a song about Ben to the tune of Old McDonald while wearing a chicken suit, and Leah hopped around on a Pogo stick. Olivia thought that wearing a Vegas showgirl outfit and popping out of a cake was a hidden talent. She tried to be sexy, but she was #awkotaco. After the show, Olivia had a “panic attack” in the Boyz 2 Men green room. Eventually she calmed down and they went on with the date.

The rest of the date went well and some of the girls got some uninterrupted Ben time. Like clockwork some conversations were interrupted by Olivia fishing for compliments about her lackluster performance. Lauren B. told Ben that she was scared that she possibly went on her last first date. It was super sweet, super vulnerable and Ben ate it up. Lauren B. received a rose.

On an unrelated note, I LOVE Jennifer’s outfit and I need it in my closet. Where can I find a bright yellow blazer?? I already own everything else. You can’t see it in the picture, but she is wearing nude booties.

The next 1:1 date went to Becca. A wedding dress was delivered to the suite, and it made all of us wonder what was going to happen. An old school pink convertible picked Becca up, where she met Ben at The Little White Chapel. Ben is waiting for her at the altar and then he gets down on one knee to ask her if she wants to… help him marry people today.  Just what ever girl grows up planning, marrying other people.

Poor Becca was so confused and shocked but took it in stride. They married a few different couples and then they went to a Vegas neon sign park. Becca opened up about being a virgin and why it’s important to her. I have to give her credit for sticking to her faith and values. Becca got a rose.

Jubilee might have said it best; “she hasn’t lost it in 26 years, I doubt it will happen in 6 hours.” We were all cracking up when she said that.

Ben had a 2:1 date with the twins to do an early hometown date. Since they are from Vegas producers probably figured they could save a bit on travel expenses. Helicopter rides can’t be cheap. He met their mom, who from the looks of their house decorates exclusively at Kirklands. He spends time with each of the girls, and learns more about them from their mom. Ultimately, he picked Emily over Haley. I watched the Bachelor Live after and he said it was easy to tell them apart because Emily’s thumb is in a cast. What did he do before that?

Now it’s time for the Rose Ceremony which consisted of Olivia still droning on about her performance. Ben just seemed over it, and can you blame him? Not only is Ben over Olivia’s antics, the rest of the girls are over it as well. Jennifer, Leah, Amanda, Jubilee, Emily, Caila, Lauren H. and Olivia receive a rose. Amber and Rachel went home this week.

Next week, they head to Mexico. Hopefully they leave Olivia there.

Thanks for stopping by!

Xo, Heather
