The Bachelorette Recap: Episode 7 – The Geneva Conventions

The Bachelorette Recap: Episode 7 – The Geneva Conventions

Welcome back, Bachelorette Nation! After the blood-letting that was our “two-night event”, I think we all needed that week off. Now that we’re back, it’s time for Rachel to cull the remaining 6 men down to our final four. By the end of this episode, we’re going to know who gets to bring Rachel (and Copper?) to meet their family at one of the coveted hometown dates. We’re headed south to Geneva, Switzerland  and Rachel lets us know that the…

The Bachelorette Week 5 Recap Part 1: Norway

The Bachelorette Week 5 Recap Part 1: Norway

Welcome back, Bachelorette Nation! After being left with another (nauseatingly trite)”to be continued”, we’re back to pick up the action in South Carolina. It’s a “2-night event”, so let’s not waste time and dive right into our recap.

The Bachelorette Week 4 Recap: A Shameful Producer Rose

The Bachelorette Week 4 Recap: A Shameful Producer Rose

Welcome back, Bachelorette Nation! After a 2 week break (Congrats to Rachel’s Ex) – it’s time to get back to the action. And before we dive into the recap – I wanted to make it clear that we would not be covering any of the scandal from “Bachelor in Paradise” at this point. It’s way too serious of a situation to joke about and honestly there aren’t enough facts out in the open to form a point-of-view. Out of respect…

The Bachelorette Week 3 Recap: Troop Beverly Hills

The Bachelorette Week 3 Recap: Troop Beverly Hills

Welcome back, Bachelorette Nation! We’re one proper episode in and ABC is up to their “to be continued” shenanigans again. I guess this should be expected, but it’s annoying none the less. We left off with DeMario coming back to the mansion to set things straight with Rachel and the men stirring at the chance to gallantly defend Rachel’s honor. We all know how this is about to play out, but it’s going to be fun to watch anyhow. Let’s…

WhaBoom: The Case Against Lucas -The Bachelorette Bonus

WhaBoom: The Case Against Lucas -The Bachelorette Bonus

I initially was going to include this in our Week 2 recap, but after thinking about it, it felt like something that deserved it’s own post. We have had contestants play the villain every season. Lucas’ brand of villain is different though. He’s all about his brand and essentially has nothing to talk about with Rachel aside from how much “whaboom” is inside him. Having him on the show hurts the (wait for it) integrity of the program. This doesn’t need to be high…

The Bachelorette Week 2 Recap: Love and Basketball

The Bachelorette Week 2 Recap: Love and Basketball

Welcome back, Bachelorette Nation! After the marathon that was Rachel’s first night, it’s time to get to the business of forced cameos, group basketball dates and letting everyone know over and over that she’s here for the #rightreasons. Rachel has 23 guys left after night one which leaves us with the chaos of the first cocktail party for a second straight week. Chris Harrison, I hope you know what you’re doing! Let’s jump into this week 2’s recap!

The Bachelorette Week 1 Recap: Lawyers, Limos and a Whaboom

The Bachelorette Week 1 Recap: Lawyers, Limos and a Whaboom

Welcome back, #BacheloretteNation! Boy, does it feel good to be back. In spite of ABC’s continued lazy marketing efforts (remember last season how they constantly tweeted out pictures that gave away fantasy league questions), we have incredibly high hopes for Rachel’s season. It almost feels like Opening Day when anything is possible and hope springs eternal. We have a lot to get to, so let’s jump right in to our recap! Meet our new Bachelorette, Rachel! In keeping with Bachelor(ette) traditions, we are…

The Bachelorette Bio Analysis; we’re both excited and terrified for Rachel

The Bachelorette Bio Analysis; we’re both excited and terrified for Rachel

Holy crap, the season is almost here!!! I have to admit, I’m a little upset at Chris Harrison that he made us wait until only five days out to see the Bachelor Bios. But I can forgive our benevolent, rose-bestowing overlord, as he’s given us a fine crop of Tickle Monsters, Denzel Washington admirers, and dudes with tattoos in strange places this season.  Let’s meet Rachel’s 31 suitors! Adam, 27, a real estate agent from Dallas, TX This preview of the first…

The Bachelorette Season 13 Preview: Rachel Lindsay

The Bachelorette Season 13 Preview: Rachel Lindsay

Welcome back, #BacheloretteNation (and loyal members of #FantazieSuiteNation). It’s been a couple of weeks since we last saw Nick and Vanessa making poor choices together on primetime TV. Side note, if Ben and Lauren B can’t make it work – I’m pretty sure Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi will be broken up by Labor Day. Side-Side Note, Vanessa made sure that her mug got on camera for every damn week Nick was on DWTS, so anybody who watched that hasn’t had…

The Bachelor: Week 11 Recap – The Finale, Finally

The Bachelor: Week 11 Recap – The Finale, Finally

Welcome back, Bachelor Nation! Tonight’s the night that Nick finally gets to propose to someone he’s just met (for the 3rd time) because he’s “ready to fall in love” (for at least the 4th time on national TV). So yeah, I think it’s fair to say Nick Viall is actually the biggest threat to traditional marriage in our country. Buckle up everyone, it’s finale time!
