This will be a quick recap since I feel nothing MAJOR happened on Monday night. Is it bad that I kind of missed the drama that Olivia brought to the table? Ok, so let’s get to it.
This week Ben took the girls to his hometown of Warsaw, IN. Warsaw looked so cute and full of small town charm. Ben asked Lauren B. on a 1:1 date, which threw the rest of the girls into a downward spiral of “why hasn’t he asked me out personally”. Ben drove Lauren around his hometown, showing her the church, where he went to high school, where his first kiss was and where he used to work. When Ben was in high school he worked for a youth center (of course because he’s perfect). He took Lauren inside to meet some of his favorite people and play basketball with the kids. It was a really sweet date and it showed Lauren another side of Ben. Later, Ben and Lauren talked about what happened the week before with Leah’s betrayal. I still think Lauren is going to take home the final rose and the ring.
JoJo got the second 1:1 date and she was off to Chicago to meet Ben. She was initially bummed that she didn’t get the hometown tour, but she got to spend the whole day inside Wrigley Field and wear a “Mrs. Higgins” jersey. Other than that, there was nothing special about the date.
Becca, Amanda, and Calia go on the two part group date. The first part was spent rowing on the lake and Ben having some 1:1 time with each of them. He later told them that there is a group date rose and whoever got it would continue on to the second part of the date. Amanda got the group date rose. Amanda and Ben had a super romantic date at McDonald’s. They had breakfast for dinner and helped work the drive thru. I wouldn’t want McDonald’s, I would politely ask if we could go to Taco Cabana or Taco Bueno. #tacosforever.
This is where things got super awkotaco. . . Emily had a 1:1 date with Ben and his parents at their house. You could easily tell how nervous she was because she just kept talking about super random things. She said her life goal is to be a Denver Broncos cheerleader, how she loves to watch movies and the most cringe worthy thing that came out of her mouth was “I can’t wait to be an above average mom”. To make her statement worse, she said it to Ben’s mom. Later Ben’s mom confessed that she doesn’t think Emily is mature enough to be his wife which put the nail in the coffin. Ben sent Emily back to Vegas after that.
Now, it’s time for the rose ceremony. Amanda already had a rose from the group date, so Calia, Lauren and JoJo got a rose. Becca was sent home and she was less than pleased when she was blind sided by Ben. You can’t blame him because he was unsure about their future and didn’t want to get her family involved if his heart is conflicted.
On a different note, next week is my 1 year blogging anniversary! I can’t believe I have been doing this for almost a year. Be prepared for more things to come, I have a few fun things in the work and will be posting on a more consistent basis.
Thanks for stopping by!
