Tonight on The Bachelor, it was a hard one to watch. Probably because all the crazies are gone, and now we actually feel for every girl on the show. There isn’t a clear villain that we can root for to be kicked off. Personally, I don’t want to see any of the contestants get hurt. Sadly, this isn’t “Sister Wives,” but the Bachelor.
The episode began with a one-on-one date with my personal favorite, Lauren B. The two clearly have a strong connection, and they were both so cute with those kids. Side note that half-court shot by Ronnie was amazing!
Next it was Jo Jo’s turn. They went to my dream city, Chicago. I must admit the date was pretty cool, but it was also pretty boring. I think Jo Jo is a fun girl, but I’m not a fan of them together. She seems more to be of a best friend, rather than a wife. At least, when it comes to Ben. We will find out soon if Ben agrees.
The group date was so uncomfortable. Especially, when Becca tells Ben that if he doesn’t feel the same way to just tell her, and not to blindside her. Seeing his facial expression caused me to think the end of Becca’s time on the Bachelor was near. Sadly, it was. Becca got what she asked for him not to do and was blindsided tonight. Along, with the rest of Bachelor Nation. Poor Becca.
Anyone else think they were featuring Becca so much tonight as a way to prep her to be a contender for the next Bachelorette? #BeccaforBachelorette seems to show that people thought so too. If fans continue to push for Becca, we might get to finally see Becca find love.
Oh and let’s not forget about sweet, Emily. That awkward one-on-one date with Emily was so painful to watch. I mean I had to leave the room when Emily was talking to Ben’s Mom. I just wanted to scream at her, and say “STOP TALKING!” In her defense, she was clearly just nervous. It’s hard meeting the parents. This didn’t seem to faze Ben’s mom, who was not a fan of Emily’s nervous talking. Ben made it clear that his mom’s opinion was the only opinion, when Ben sent Emily home. Emily does seem too young for marriage though, so I did see his mom’s point.
Overall it was a tough one, and it will probably only get harder.
P.S. Can I just say how entertaining Jo Jo’s hometown date looks to be? Jo Jo’s brother isn’t having Ben. Can’t wait to see what happens.
