Episode 4 - Like a Virgin

Let me guess, all you East Coasters are "working from home" today? 

Stop kidding yourself. Let's recap.

This week on THE BACHELOR

(Sidenote: Does anyone else feel like this season they are just starting the episode like out of thin air and you always miss the first minute because your like wait is this starting? Like...Oh I thought I had time to refill my wine but now they are already on a date?)

Ok SO it's revealed that Chris'  (3!) sisters are deciding who will get the only one on one date this episode. NO PRESSURE!

1st group date - "Let's do what feels Natural"

  1. Megan
  2. Kaitlyn
  3. Ashley S
  4. Ashley I
  5. Juelia
  6. Samantha
  7. Mackenzie
  8. Kelsey

(All of a sudden Ashley I is worried she doesn't look natural and last week, she was worried she wouldn't look enough like Kardashian???)

"So, we're at a lake"  is the great intro to their group date from Chris

Long story short, Ashley I takes her top off, Kaitlyn takes her bottoms off, and Kelsey feels like she is in a muddy hell hole and wants to gauge her eyes out with a fork #totallynormal

While the group daters are stripping and skinny dipping, the rest of the girls are back at the house trying to impress Chris' sisters. #shortendofthestick


All the girls at the house talk to Chris' sisters...I would say they pick either Carly or Jade???

Back to the group date...

The girls learn they are going to be camping over at the lake

"I'm a camping virgin, and I'm a virgin camping!" - guess who

Ashley I criticizes Kelsey for being fake...#lol, and Ashley S really loses it...again.

Kaitlyn was basically asleep as Chris announced she got the rose on the group date.

One on One - Chris' sisters pick: Jade

"No one in this house would appreciate this date more than me" - GUESS WHO, again.

Kyle just said "I think she's getting voted off" about Ashley I ...that's not really how this works but I agree with him.

Most important takeaway from the date: Jade gets free loubs.

A pink haired "fairy god mother"?! Now I'm Jealous.

Jade's all dressed up and her FGM sends her to a "royal ball" with Chris.

"I've never been to a royal ball before, I mean, I live in Northeast Iowa"


I feel like Jade is underrated. She's softspoken but I think this date is going really well?

Chris gives Jade the rose.

Back at the house, Ashley puts on a dress and gets completely ready for a date with herself...no shock there.

2nd Group Date - Let's Get Dirty 

  1. Nikki
  2. Jillian
  3. Brittany
  4. Carly
  5. Britt
  6. Becca

Wedding Dresses are on and Jillian says everyone "looks pretty" and she feels out of her element. UNTIL they are in a muddy race competition and she knows she is going to kick everyones ass.

Also Jillian definitely had the ONLY dress that could withstand a mud race.


I'm pretty sure only Britt, Jillian, and Becca finished the race. Whitney, Carly...not so much.

 Guess who came in first? 

Night time one on one with: Jillian

"What's your 5 year plan?"

I hear ya, Jill.

Yeah, he sent her home.

Rose Ceremony Commences:

Ashley I HAS to tell Chris that she's a virgin. Chris says he "never would have guessed" that Ashley is a virgin. 

Yeah, you're telling us. We've had to hear about this for the last 3 episodes!

Why can Chris literally not form a sentence when Britt questions him!? That was the most awkward thing I've seen all night.

Until right now. Ashley telling Chris she's a virgin...

Here's who got a rose:

  1. Kaitlyn - received a rose on group date #1
  2. Jade - received a rose on one - on - one
  3. Whitney
  4. Carly
  5. Megan
  6. Samantha - she has seriously gotten ZERO facetime am I right??
  7. Mackenzie
  8. Kelsey
  9. Becca
  10. Ashley I
  11. Britt

Everyone is sad to see Juelia go...especially Britt.

Goodbye to: Jillian, Nikki, Juelia, Ashley S

What do you guys think about this episode? Honestly I really think it has been sort of anticlimactic...I feel like I still really don't know any of the girls. Frontrunners for me are ... maybe Kaitlin, Whitney, Jade? I'm not sure.

Who do you think is going home next week? My money is on Britt...I think her conversation with Chris really set her back.

Comment below and tell me your thoughts!

Or, if you feel like Ashley S, don't!



  1. You're right. Jillian's dress was the only one that had straps, it was set up. I was the most shocked when she reacted after he decided not to give her a rose, like really you weren't being yourself? Whata joke! Then there is Ashley I who I cannot take seriously, fitting she is from NJ. I do feel the same way, I don't really know any of the girls... I don't know who I'd say is a forerunner. But Mackenzie has to go back to the UFO she came from ASAP. And Britt's time is going to be short lived after that. ;(

    1. Agreed with everything you said! First of all I've had enough of Ashley I - and of course she has to be from NJ hahaha. Britt really screwed it up and why is Mackenzie even still there!!

  2. I think Ashley I is def getting too emotional for this show and will be going buh byyeee next week. (Although we do know how we love to keep the dramatic ones around for "good" tv...)

    Love Jade! I also love Becca and heard a rumor she makes it very far. I can't even remember Samantha-she's either going home next week, or like Jade gets some serious face time next episode.

    Yeah not sure what's going on with Britt-that was so uncomfortable-like I drank an entire glass of wine during that one fragment uncomfortable- so yeah either she's really in or really notttt.

    So remember the first episode there was alluding to some serious controversial hooking up in a tent? Was that it? Is there another camp scene coming up? These editors are geniuses/criminals if that was it. #AmIRight?

    1. I am totally with you - the producers definitely had us fooled, I'm pretty sure this was the scene from all the previews! I agree with your predictions - Ashley I has got to go, same with Samantha. I feel like she hasn't even been on the show! I like Jade and I like Becca although I've barely heard from her!!

  3. Great re-cap... Thank you! :) I have a feeling that Ashley I& maybe Britt might be going home next week.

    1. Thank you Rosario!! I think Ashley I will be going, and Britt may have ruined her chances, too! Thanks for commenting! :-)
