The Bachelorette - Current Thoughts

Monday, June 8, 2015

Let me start of by saying I'm sorry I have been slacking so much with my Bachelorette posts. Between planning a wedding and everything else it has really been hard for me to even stay awake for the entire episode every Monday.

Anywho, is it just me, or is this the strangest season the Bachelor franchise has had? I mean yes it's getting more predictable (there's always the drunk person on night 1, drama in the house, and the other usual shananagins) but all of that aside I just feel like the relationships are not exactly where they should be at this point and that there's so much drama doing on every episode has to end with a "to be continued"...

I love Shawn & I do think their relationship has progressed and love Benzy too. Everyone else I'm lukewarm about, and don't even get me started on Ian. 

He was my FAVORITE and now come to find out he's some egotistical asshole who claims Kaitlyn isn't half as hot as his ex...(I know, I don't think he has an ex either.) 

While were on the subject of guys who shouldn't be on the show, let's talk about NICK VIALL. What the hell is he doing there? Did any of you catch Andi's tweet after Nick was confronted by the guys about his past with Andi/why he's even on the show? It went a little something like this: #andtheemmygoesto 

So yeah, Monday night is going to be crazy. Kaitlyn and SOMEONE sleep together, I think? (my money is on Nick. What do you guys think?) and the whole house goes crazy. 

TO BE CONTINUED ... Stay tuned for Monday night and if you don't already, follow me live tweet on twitter @sfreid 


Black Eyes & Bromance - The Bachelorette Episode 3 & 4 Recap

Monday, June 1, 2015

Sooo yes I dropped the ball last week, ok, I admit it, we all make mistakes. I watched the episode late, oh and also I'm PLANNING A WEDDING AND WORKING FULL TIME - seriously, who do you guys think you are?! 


So Episode 3, I'll call, boxing match + who cares. Basically, Kupah flirted with Leila Ali the entire date and since he is a contestant on The Bachelorette, that is not allowed (obvi). Benzy kicked everyones ass anyway so who really cares what Kupah did. Then Amy Schumer guided the guys on a stand-up comedy group date where she called JJ a turd and America agreed. 

The first One on One went to Clint, he and Kaitlyn did a weird underwater photoshoot date...


The most exciting thing was Kupahs outburst when he told Kaitlyn he thinks she is only keeping him to look good on her "line up" and that he really didn't like the boxing date...then she told him he was going home because it just wasn't going to work (gee I wonder why) andddd he freaked out. We left with a TO BE CONTINUED... And a very loud Kupah yelling at producers.

Episode 4

Kupah goes bye-bye leaving behind his dignity and taking his bruised ego in tow.

NOW, let's get on with it shall we!

Rose Ceremony #2:

  1. "Jerod" aka Love Man, let's not forget that 
  2. Ben H
  3. Shawn B
  4. Jonathan
  5. Tanner???
  6. Cupcake Chris
  7. Brian
  8. Justin - looks like a character from Saved By the Bell
  9. Ian
  10. Joshua
  11. Joe ?!
  12. Corey
  13. Tony
+ the guys who already had roses:

14. JJ
15. Clint
16. Kentucky Joe
17. Benzy

Group Date #1:

The guys wake up to a "gong show" (lolz, good one JJ) and are going to be sumo "wrestling" actual sumo wrestlers and inevitably eachother.

Here's who was subjected to the debauchery:

Kentucky Joe

All their asses are hanging out and JJ makes a great observation that everyone has a nice ass besides Tony.

Tony would be "absolutely fucking terrified" if he was a sumo wrestler who was wrestling his little wimp ass. Yeah, totally Tony. 

Tony is preaching non-violence after saying that, which is even funnier. 

JOE V. JJ in sumo - Joe kicks JJ's ass

CLINT V EVERYONE ELSE - Clint basically kicks everyones ass.

"We get it, you wrestled in college. Relax." - Shawn

Back at the house, Tony goes home, or to the zoo, it was unclear, but either way he left.

Ok so back to the group date. Shawn and Kaitlyn have the best connection I think in this group, and Clint is over on the couch basically ignoring Kaitlyn, "playing hard to get" which we all know is the worst tactic you could have on this show. 

Group Date Rose goes to Shawn (<3)

1 on 1 Date: BENZYYYY (<3<3<3)

"What if there's birds in there?"

THIS IS MY HELL. Kaitlyn and Benzy are trapped inside an actual hell hole and have to "work together to get the code to get out"

I have nothing else to say about that horrible date because I was too busy tweeting (@sfreid) and hiding under a blanket.

Their one on one time was actually really serious and Benzy is not only the cutest one on the show, but he is also really well spoken and fun. Ian who?!


Sooo this riveting date consisted of the guys giving sex ed lessons to a bunch of kids. Jokes on them, they are actually actors....(lol...?)

I know no one on this date. I feel like Jerod is the only one I've ever seen before. Seriously guys who are these people?!

Who the hell is Ryan B!? More importantly what the hell is going on with his hair???

Josh the welder talking about periods was the best part of this episode, and Ben H killed the reproduction lesson. I feel like he's secretly a teacher.


In other news, JJ and Clint are basically dating. 

In an even stranger turn of events, Kaitlyn is super attracted to Jerod. Of all people. Sooo Kaitlyn and Jerod are basically dating now too.

Sidenote: Can I just say you can totally predict what will happen with a guy based on the music playing while they talk or kiss?


Cocktail party = everyone talking crap about Clint to eachother and Kaitlyn and Clint not thinking it matters.

The episode ended before Kaitlyn could send Clint home buuuuut she did say that he's "one of the biggest douchebags in bachelor history" which we knew from the moment we saw his hair come out of the limo night 1 (amiright?) But hey everyone at their own pace.

SO What do you guys think so far?! Who do you like? Tell me tell me!

Also can we talk about the fact that Chris and Whitney broke up already?! Is anyone else upset?!

Thanks for reading!
