Welcome back, Bachelorette Nation! Week 1 is behind us along with the limos, and constantly referencing ABC.com to figure out who’s who. Unfortunately, our benevolent overlords at ABC spent a ton of time on guys who went home. Scott, Matt Donald on his tractor, the Box King guy… let us spend some time getting a feel for the season, and stop trying to make Chicago Joe happen again. None the less, let’s take a quick look back and consider what we have in store this week!
Did You Know: Hannah Brown is from Alabama
Last week we kicked things off by reaffirming that we know nothing about Hannah aside from the fact that she’s from Alabama. Typically the guys have cute intros related to things we know about our Bachelor/ette – they like dogs, they love their family, they have a hobby, etc. This year? We heard “Roll Tide” shouted more times on in 2 hours on Monday night than on a fall Saturday in Tuscaloosa. It’s literally all we know about Hannah (and the fact that she, uh, struggles with words).
Right Reasons , Aisle 2
The manufactured drama with Scott was so obviously a plant that it’s hard to overlook. We all know that the invisible hand of ABC creates a lot of what we see on screen but the whole Demi and Katie sting operation was just too much. It was a forced story line to establish once and for all that Hannah is, in fact, here for the “right reasons”. It happens every season but let’s give it a minute, shall we? His pointy hair was a dead giveaway. He wasn’t going to make it past night one anyway, why do we care if he’s got a girlfriend back home? ABC waited until week 2 for DeMario’s ex showed up to their basketball game.
Week 2 Thoughts
So what do we see in the cards for next week? My god we hope some depth but short of that from the preview we find out that Tyler G seems to be getting a 1:1 complete with helicopter (thank god we get some classic bachelorette fare). By getting the first 1:1 it means we better hope he’s cool because he’ll be here for a while – statistically speaking. I have no feelings about him yet but I’m guessing since he’s a psych major, Hannah will get some coaching around not being nervous making toasts or something.
Luke P also professes that he’s falling in love with Hannah at a drag show which, based upon last week, feels right.
