I know, I know, I said I wasn’t going to blog about The Bachelorette this go around . . . but HOLY DRAMA THIS SEASON HAS BEEN ONE DRAMATIC CLIFFHANGER AFTER ANOTHER AND I HAVE TO TALK ABOUT IT.
I’m not going to rehash the whole entire episode because I didn’t take notes and most of the time I was just sitting in my bed with my mouth hanging open (and I am not a fan of people who keep their mouths open in shock, I truly believe you can be in shock without having your mouth open, BUT I COULD NOT HELP IT, I TELL YOU) and/or I had my mouth open for a bit here and there in order to have a sip of wine. Believe me, wine was necessary. And maybe ice cream. And definitely a churro, but I didn’t have one and that’s just sad.
Here’s what I took away from last night’s episode.
1. I’m happy that Kaitlyn listened to the group of guys regarding Clint and that she gave him the boot. Most of the time bachelors/bachelorettes get all defensive and uppity and say things like I’d like our time to be our time, let’s not discuss the others, that’s for me to find out on my own time, I don’t appreciate you tattletaling and meanwhile we’re all yelling Hello? You really want to date the person that the entire house can’t stand? Really?!
2. Clint took it very hard. As in, every other word was bleep bleep and he was mostly upset at JJ who threw him under the bus. So Clint and JJ broke up.
3. JJ was a wreck. He cried and cried and then he slapped himself silly. Really. It looked like it hurt.
4. Shawn, the Ryan Gosling look alike, has uh-mazing abs. I’m not kidding. He makes me want to do laundry on a washboard. And I hate laundry.
I had to do a little research about him because I couldn’t remember exactly why I didn’t like him when he was on Andi’s season.
I read this Talk About It Tuesday post and it all came rushing back to me. By the way, if you have 20 minutes to kill, that was a fun post and I enjoyed re-reading it. Just saying. At the end of the day.
Nick analyzed everything about his relationship with Andi. He talked all the time. He never shut up. Ever. EVER! I mean, I know I talk a lot, but there are often times that I am just sitting there quietly, twiddling my thumbs, or reading, or eating, or drinking, or GET THIS — LISTENING TO OTHERS.
And let’s not forget Nick’s hair.
And the way he says words with “s”.
I just cannot shupport this, people.
I just do not. DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT.
AND LET’S NOT FORGET HOW NICK TALKED ABOUT HIS FANTASY SUITE DATE WITH ANDI ON THEIR AFTER THE FINAL ROSE CEREMONY. It was scandalous.
Now, it’s week four, as Kaitlyn kept pointing out. Up until this point, she kept saying she knew her husband was in this group of guys.
And then BAM. Here comes Nick. And she feels like she needs to give him a shot. They had a connection on Instagram. And blah blah blah.
I don’t know how I feel about Kaitlyn now. I get that this is a show and she is the bachelorette. And she’s supposed to date a bunch of guys. I get that.
But I think she has commitment issues. Because what happens when she finally picks a guy (a mere 6 weeks later), becomes engaged, and then some other guy from another season or from her yoga class or from the grocery store or from down the street approaches her and says I swear, I think we have a connection, will you consider going out with me?
Does she say Oh, you’re lovely, how sweet, but I can’t, I’m a married woman . . . or does she say You know, I do owe it to myself to see where this might go . . .
Am I the only one thinking this?
Also, and this is the last thing, and then I’m going to go catch up with the Real Housewives of Orange County because I am nothing if not thorough when it comes to reality TV, especially when I’m on summer vacation, doesn’t it seem like Kaitlyn thrives on all the drama?
First, we’ve got Kupah. Then, Clint. Now, Nick.
Kaitlyn’s heart is always beating out of her chest and she is always shaking.
Good grief, girl.
Pull yourself together!
And if I were one of the guys, I’d be running the other way. Who wants to put up with all that nonsense? I can’t take it and I’m a girl!
Okay, that’s all I’ve got.
I feel better now.
