Now There is Four

Now There is Four

*Warning Spoilers*

 

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.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day

Since today is Valentine’s Day, let’s take a moment to appreciate all the celebrity couples that make us feel all sorts of love.

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are the definition of relationship goals. They are funny, goofy, hot and have great style. Not to mention the adorable looks they give each other on the red carpet that make us swoon.

Beyonce and Jay-Z are the ultimate power couple. Both are successful in their careers, with Beyonce being one of the most popular singers of our generation, and Jay-Z a huge rap star. Together their net worth is $1 billion dollars. Also, they are kickass parents to their adorable daughter, Blue Ivy. They make us strive to have a dynamic marriage like them one day.

Ellen Degeneres and Portia De Rossi laugh their way into our hearts. The hilarious talk show host brings laughter into our homes every day, and her wife isn’t shy to laughter either. Portia stared in the award winning comedy Arrested Development. Portia and Ellen make us jealous of all the jokes they must share together.

These love stricken celebrity couples make even the cynical grouch a softie for love on this Valentine’s Day.

Ben Says Goodbye to…

*Warning Spoilers*

 

Let’s start off with the fact that Olivia did not get her rose taken away at the beginning of the episode. While it would have been pretty mean to have Olivia’s rose taken back, I kind of feel like she deserved it. Olivia seems to have only joined the show for the fame. Even at the end of the episode where she is seen “crying,” it screamed fake. So just like the girls, I was pretty annoyed that Olivia stayed. Especially, after everyone just told him that she is fake. If I was one of the girls, I would have been offended that he trusts Olivia over everyone else. Thankfully, she was sent packing this episode. So now we can all rest easy that Ben won’t end up with her.

And then there is Leah. Let me just say that when the episode started and she didn’t get that one-on-one date card I felt bad for her. My heart went out to Leah, and I thought if I was her I would have just left. It’s clear that if a guy asks a girl on a second date before he asks you, he isn’t all that into you. However, my sympathetic feelings quickly changed when Leah let her insecurities get the best of her. She began smack talking Lauren B, whom from what we have seen does not deserve that. Leah became just as fake as Olivia, and at least Ben was able to see it in Leah.

Overall, it was a great episode. It was sad to see Lauren H. go, but Ben finally said goodbye to two girls who definitely didn’t deserve his heart. So let’s all toast to the fake girls going home.

Can’t wait to see the next episode! Who will be going home next?

Is Bernie Sanders too old to be President?

Is Bernie Sanders too old to be President?

As the 2016 elections are upon us, people are pondering who they should elect to be the 45th president of the United States. Bernie? Ted? Hillary? Donald?

Whether a Republican or a Democrat, all of us will choose based on who we believe aligns with what we stand for the best. However, the candidate’s age should not be a deciding factor.

I know that sounds obvious, but the topic I see people writing the most about on Facebook is that Bernie Sanders is too old to be President.

Now, let me just state some facts. Bernie Sanders is only FIVE years older than Donald Trump and SIX years older than Hillary Clinton. But for some reason neither Trump’s nor Hillary’s age is a hot topic. So why is Bernie’s?

The answer: Bernie carries himself much older. My theory: Bernie does not want to spend money on a stylist, because Bernie’s main platform is not receiving money from big companies. He doesn’t want to appear like a rich snob who is not relatable to the average American. However, I think what Bernie and his team might not have realized is that people judge based on looks. Or maybe they did and just don’t care to spend money on improving his physical appearance.  Either way, Bernie’s appearance seems to be a deciding factor for why he shouldn’t be president, which is ridiculous.

People shouldn’t focus on a candidate’s appearance or age, but the issues. The issues that each candidate stands for. Let’s think like Bernie and not pick a candidate based on what stylist they have. Let’s focus on who will make the best president, whoever you believe that to be. So the next time you want to state an opinion on why Bernie Sanders shouldn’t be president; you better not say his age.
