The Bachelorette – Getting Schooled

“I honestly don’t even like her right now.”

This week on The Bachelorette, we picked up where we’d left off: Kupah getting bizarrely angry and being told to leave. It was so weird! They had a big fight, and then he didn’t want to leave. Was it just out of pride? Just hit the road! It didn’t work out!

With that, it was on to the rose ceremony. It’s too early to tell most of these people apart. But naturally, the villain (J.J.) and the weirdo (Tony) made it through. Thank goodness for producers’ picks!

“I see the world through the eyes of a child, I have the heart of a warrior, and a gypsy soul.”

Date #1: Sumo Wrestling

ANOTHER violence-based date? Geez! Do we have to? I liked the one guy who was like “I love Japanese culture….I like sushi! I don’t know anything about sumo…but I’m sure it’ll be fun.” Um, OK. I feel like you need to know at least ONE other Japanese thing, other than sushi, to be able to say you love Japanese culture.

Tony was NOT down with another aggressive “date”, and he let Kaitlyn know. He told her, as he told us, that he views the world through the eyes of a child and has the heart of a warrior and the soul of a gypsy! Geez!

Kaitlyn felt bad that Tony was upset, but was also feeling defensive about her date choices. The other guys all reassured her that, no, this is super fun! Ugh, this show and these people are the worst. Tony is a weirdo and this date is stupid!

In the middle of a serious conversation about how angry Tony was, he spit. Ew! That’s a deal-breaker for me. I would have sent him home right then and there. Ian was around during the conversation – so far, he’s coming across well.

Tony decided to go home, because this is OBVIOUSLY not for him. The show, Kaitlyn, the outside world…

Kaitlyn gave the date rose to Cory. Clint won the silly sumo competition, but lost Kaitlyn’s interest by being too quiet during the date. Didn’t matter! Clint isn’t here for Kaitlyn, here’s here for someone else…

Date #2 – Courtesy of Chris Harrison

Chris Harrison planned the second date of the episode for Kaitlyn and Ben Z. (It always sounds like Kaitlyn is calling him Benzie, which is now what I will call him.) The date was an escape room – now THIS is a date! I’ve actually done a room escape challenge before, with a group of my husband’s coworkers, and it was so much fun. I didn’t understand why Kaitlyn was so scared, until I saw the pigeons. Pigeons are disgusting.

I will say, this had more of a haunted house vibe than the room escape I did. Mine was more history based, you just searched through a steampunk-style room for clues. But the hysteria was grossly exaggerated. I mean, you’re on TV. It’s all fake. They can’t let you die.

After the horror show, Kaitlyn and Benzie went back to her place to order pizza. Ben told Kaitlyn more about what it was like when his mom died, and it seemed like a pretty genuine conversation. They moved on to champagne in the hot tub, and Kaitlyn gave Benzie the rose.

Date #3 – Sex Ed

Another stupid group date! The guys were teaching sex ed to a bunch of kids. It was painfully awkward and included a lot of bleeps. The kids were actually actors, but it was still super uncomfortable.

Kaitlyn had pretty long conversation with Ben H., Jared and Joshua, and ended up giving the rose to Ben.

Brokeback Bachelor + Rose Ceremony

The stuff with Clint and J.J. was so LOL. What are they even implying? Is this all a set up? I can’t handle it.

Clint was the first to pull Kaitlyn aside at the cocktail party, because he wants to stick around to hang out with J.J.

“I was wearing my power socks, so I felt like I had the power and I had to abuse it.”

What does THAT even mean? Power socks? Why are Clint and J.J. so mean when they talk about everyone else? I assume they’re both just there to play the villain and get the most screen time.

The show was another cliffhanger, with Kaitlyn about to set another jerk loose.

One Response to The Bachelorette – Getting Schooled

  1. Mum says:

    Even though Tony was a complete wing nut I have to agree with him about the group date activity choices. What IS wrong with a zoo date? Is Kaitlyn, in fact, responsible for choosing these horrible feats of strength dates? What’s next the aluminum pole? Festivus for the rest of us!
    Regarding the school date – absolute garbage. What a total waste of time. What could this exercise in humiliation and inappropriateness possibly tell you about these guys? If one of them had refused to do it then maybe that guy would have moved up a couple of notches on the date-able meter. Sheesh! If this is Kaitlyn’s sense of humour shining through it’s pretty thin. But it is the Bachelorette after all so what do I expect? Ha!
    So far Ian is my favourite but he’s probably way too level headed and stable for this side-show 😉
