Welcome back, Bachelorette Nation! We apologize for the delay but it was hard to keep up with all of the action from our Fantazie Suite catamaran. As it turns out, it was a pretty odd week that bordered on uneventful. Let’s jump into the action.
Bruised and Battered
Ryan: The first rose ceremony this week focused primarily on David’s return from the ER, his face swollen and many-colored. Becca had just finished saying goodbye to Clay and had a rose just waiting for a chest to pin it on, so David was sent to a (presumably bottom bunk) bed to sleep it off without having to stand through the Rose Ceremony.
Matt: I mean, did Becca have a choice? The guy smashed his face and then presumably was told to “suit up” for a rose ceremony. If nothing else he gets an A for effort. Becca sent home a couple of guys that I couldn’t believe were still on the show and Jordan looked downright offended that David got a rose. We are sprinting to their eventual 2:1.
Date 1 – Garrett and Olympic Bobsledding
Matt: Garrett is clearly a player this season and getting this 1:1 solidifies that. I don’t know about you, but this date was relatively terrifying and not exactly a great way to get to know someone. At least with the Vomit Comet episode from Nick’s season, he was able to connect with Vanessa and then kiss her right after she threw up #neverforget.
Ryan: Garrett’s bio says he’s from Reno – can we really be surprised that he’s divorced? I hear they make newcomers to Reno get married so that they can then get divorced and fit in with the rest of the population.
Group Date: Lumberjacking Around
Ryan: Fun fact: I actually went axe throwing last month. It was amazing, and I was… terrible at it. Becca’s bullseye during the lumberjack games was impressive. I want to take part in all of the other activities featured on this group date.
Matt: A group date with so many guys? We were bound to have some nonsense. Jordan kept things light by sporting the gold hot pants that Becca (the producers) got for him. The guys were a little put off by this but let’s be real, Jordan was not given those pants to not wear them. Jean Blanc, who initially seems like an impressive guy who just happens to have 200 colognes, leaned a little too far into this quirk. He gave Becca her own scent which was…nice? But then he made a major miscalculation and told Becca that he was falling for her. You could see the red flags going up and Becca did everything she could to whisk him off to a limo bound for the airport as fast as possible.
Ryan: Though he almost immediately walked it back, I loved the audacity of Jean Blanc asking Becca to give back the perfume he had “designed” for her. Was that a prop from the producers, or do you think he just slapped an engraved label on the same bottle he’s been giving to women since college?
Matt: Side note: There is a 100% chance Jordan wears these pants when he ultimately arrives in “Paradise”
Date 3: Wills
Ryan: Becca was so shaken by the weirdness of Jean Blanc’s sendoff that she basically gave Wills a rose for not immediately telling her he loved her. I had to be reminded of the activity they participated in less than an hour after finishing the episode (snowmobiles, in case you were wondering).
Matt: Yup, 100% forgot what they did. This could be said for most of this season if I’m being honest though. Wills didn’t propose or give her a lock of his hair – he gets a rose.
