#TheBachelor @benhiggi E5 – Cleaning House

The ladies arrive in Mexico City where once again Olivia is convinced the date card is for her.
 
Guess what???
 
It’s not LOL. 
ben and amanda.jpgIt was actually Amanda.
 
Oh, but Olivia had much to say about Amanda. She doesn’t believe Ben is the right person for her because she has children.
 
Really Olivia? You are a fucking child.
 
The next day, Ben wakes the girls up at 4:30 in the morning so he can see all of them in their element. Surprisingly, Cray Cray Jub had her hair in head while Olivia left pieces of her weave on the dresser. It was pretty funny to hear Ben ask, “who’s weave is this?” Definitely an LOL moment.
 
Ben finally did find Amanda and as they headed off on their date, Olivia, having a conversation with Lauren H. and telling her she completely disagrees Ben should keep her, especially since she’s been away from her kids for quite some time. She also doesn’t believe it would work out, if Ben wanted children, he would have had them.
 
Really Olivia? Are you a psychologist now? Perhaps you should be on the show, “Married At First Sight” and after a whole psychological work up, I’m sure none of the advisors on that show would pick her to be with someone. That marriage wouldn’t last more than a week.
 
During Ben and Amanda’s date, she expressed concerns on her interview regarding relationships and marriage because at her such youthful age, she’s already lived that life where Ben has not. In real life, relationships like this are truly a challenge. You can’t expect for someone to come into your life and adjust to your needs and your family without adjusting to his needs.
 
While Amanda seems to be on a “long extended date”, according to Jubilee (cray cray), she’s upset and jealous that Ben is spending more and more time with the other ladies and not her. If she thinks really hard about their one on one date, it wasn’t romantic at all, and the proceeding episodes he treats her as just one of the guys. You can take the ghetto out of the hood and the ghetto will always follow LOL. It just won’t jive with Ben’s family. Let’s not pretend here guys.
 
The group date card arrives and the names are read as follows (with Olivia begging not to want to be a part of the group date because she wants to spend more time with “her man”).

#TheBachelor @benhiggi – #BenBeccable @chrisbharrision

 

I was all convinced at some point Olivia would be one of the top two but I think between episodes 1 and 2, I changed my mind. Now watching episode three, I’m would be surprised if Olivia receives a rose at the end of this.

Four weeks in and she’s calling Ben her husband and how she’s in love with him that’s “her man”, “Ben and Zen” I’m not sure how many more shit she can come up with, that is after Chris Harrison announces Ben is no long in Los Angels but rather in Las Vegas (my future home).

As soon as they realize they are going, she’s instigating she’s going to whisper to him, she wants to see Celine. She’s funny.

Needless to say, once the ladies arrive in Vegas, the first date card also arrives in their hotel room at the beautiful Aria Hotel (was there in 2014 truly beautiful hotel), and JoJo is on this particular one and one.

When Ben picked her up as they waited for the helicopter and the girls became jealous but then laughed when the helicopter landed and the force of the propellers knocked the table and champagne down from the table BUT walked away when Ben took advantage of the moment and kissed JoJo. Now that was pretty cool.

 

During the one on one, it seemed the conversation between Ben and JoJo was truncated. What exactly the story with JoJo and her last relationship. Why did it sound like she was having an affair? I mean no offense, we’re all grown here, aren’t we and shit happens, however, it would make sense she would discuss a relationship to make a conversation flow for the cameras and before you know it, Ben is offering a rose. Okay. Great.

The night ended with one more surprise after he gave the rose to JoJo, the fireworks above the Aria hotel began to spark when the girls inside their room heard the fireworks but could not see them (Ben and JoJo’s date were at the MGM Grand – great hotel too) of course had a clearest view of the fireworks.

JoJo one point, Olivia zero.

#TheBachelor @benhiggi

Here we are~ A New Year has just begun and ABC wastes no time in premiering the Bachelor Ben Higgins from the Kaitlyn season. Surprisingly Ben was one of the last men standing (not sure why) there seemed to be a lack of personality there and with all the good looking men who were in her season, why choose Ben?

Anyway, I’m trying something new. I weaned myself off cable and no longer have the opportunity to watch live television. With an array of streaming applications where you can watch all of your favorite shows on your own time, I have to say, it sucks just a little bit.

I’m not able to catch up on the Housewives because Bravo hasn’t gotten with the programming of steaming unless you want to watch last season’s bullshit and who wants to blog about something that happened last year? Bye Felicia.

As always the intro starts off with shades of love on the water, in a boat, on some kind of a warm island, or on some kind of ride, followed by tears of women who barely know him or claiming they put their whole life on hold, yada yada yada. Oh lest not forget the “bitch” or “evil doer” of the show, “he’s my husband, he just hasn’t figure it out yet” type…..and the one who has a panic attack and guess what she won’t need the paramedics all she will need is Ben to sweep her off her feet. #Pathetic

Ben’s background, simple, from Warsaw, Indiana, small town where everyone knows each other, probably some Christian town…blah and on top of that he can’t find anyone from his own town?

Ben has this fake and mediocre conversation with his parents who have been together for the last thirty five years. One of the main topics discussed was Ben’s fears of being unlovable, which was something he bought up in the Kaitlyn season.

Hey Ben, try being my age and still not finding someone decent to have simple conversations with, without pulling teeth or begging for affection. Believe me you will find someone to love before I do. LOL.

Now with the Bachelor family growing, it seems they invite other Bachelors to “advise” on how to deal with this type of “reality” situation.

 Who do they bring back? Farmer Chris Soules (who broke up with his self centered girlfriend Whitney Bischoff), Jason Mesnick who at the end picked Melissa the one he really didn’t want over Molly but I guess to make the producers happy he gave them what they wanted. However in the reunion he told Melissa he was not the least bit interested in her and asked for Molly back. (What a happy reunion). Sean Lowe who married Catherine, discussed how he fell in love with her towards the end of the show (which was true). My question was why Farmer Chris was there. Clearly he picked the wrong woman. I don’t think their relationship lasted more than a week. (of course I’m being sarcastic) but if you recall, he had more of a relationship with Brit while the other girls were just hanging out watching this relationship flourish before them. #Confused

#TheBachelorette – E7 – Sex in Ireland @kaitlynbristowe @viallnicholas28 @chrisbharrison

ian confronting kaitlynWe left off on E6 with arrogant Ian calling Kaitlyn all sorts of names in his “monotone” voice calling her shallow and a surface person, all because there was no connection between them.

Ian seems very confused on what he saw on television with Kaitlyn and what he met he met in real life because she’s making out with other guys and not with him. I mean let’s call it what it is…the man is upset because Kaitlyn is not into him.

Using terms like, “surface level’, and wanting to be “plowed by Chris Soules”, is just fucking low class. So if he wanted to leave he should have just said look it’s not working out for me, see you later, instead he went on the attack.

“Ian, my friend, take the hit like a man and walk off with your head up high instead of up your ass.”

Ian left on a very sour note and made it worse for himself when he made the comment in the limo how he was going to have sex. Well good for him. Seems he needs a dick up in his ass to follow. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. BTW the last thing ABC wants to do is have Ian as the Bachelor. This would be a BIG mistake and any woman who would want a man like this is suffering from some serious low self esteem issues. Stay far away from this one.

ian in limo

I think this whole scenario left Kaitlyn speechless because her looks said it all and if she defended herself honestly to Ian, there would have been more bleeping in Bachelor history next to the insignificant rose to Justin when Nick came on to the scene.

After Ian’s departure, Nick was there to comfort her and while Shawn was looking for her, he just happened to catch them in a making out session, just as earlier he saw her making out with Joe. While the process is shitty, the fact of the matter is, in real life, would anyone see another person making out with them…no. This just happens to be an open dating scene where everyone gets to see and know everything that’s going on in the other relationships. That’s why it’s The Bachelor.

So with Ian being gone does that mean that Joshua was spared?

062215-kaitlynroseceremony the alamoThe guys and Kaitlyn head over to The Alamo for the rose ceremony which goes as follows:

Jared, Cupcake Chris, JJ (Why????), Joe, Ben Z., Tanner. The guys that went home were Justin and Joshua which was to be expected. So Joshua was not saved from the Ian departure; however I’m not sure why she kept JJ or even Tanner for that matter. The times of Bachelor sure have changed and while the rules still apply about waiting till the end to disclose any feelings, sometimes not all the roses will be given out.

The last of the guys standing now for the next round of dates: Shawn, Nick, Ben H., Jared, Cupcake, JJ, Joe, Ben Z. and Tanner.

I was happy to see the Queen off.

Their next stop Chris Harrison announces is Dublin, Ireland and while they’re cheering, outside of the mansion shows and upset and hurt Joshua listening to the  cheers coming from inside. Boo hoo.

Now in Dublin, Kaitlyn walks in to greet the guys and she’s the date card to tell the guys who’s going on the first one on one date with her…I’m sure it’s Nick.

Surprise….

kaitlyn and nick in dublinOn the date with Nick they walked around the town of Dublin, taking in the sites. Just seeing how Nick is with Kaitlyn, he seems the ideal guy, almost too good to be true kind of a guy. (I may have said the same exact for the Andi season.) Can a guy be really that sweet and loving? Thinking back in the Andy season he’s definitely different but he still has that swag. Quite honestly I can watch him all day. It makes me forget there are other guys waiting at the hotel for a date card. I also think their relationship is right where it’s supposed to be like any new relationship you should be making out and grinding all the time!

Back at the hotel, the date card arrives, with a riddle from Chris Harrison and the attendees as follows:  Tanner, Ben Z., Shawn, Jared, Ben H. and Cupcake Chris, which leave the two on one date with Joe and JJ. Now this can go either way. Either Kaitlyn will pick Joe and can JJ OR they both leave. Either way, one of them is going and I believe Kaitlyn will be saying goodbye to JJ and then he can be free to be with Clint.

Back on the date with Kaitlyn and Nick, it’s now nightfall in Dublin, dinner time was spent with a lot of kissing and of course no hesitation on Nick accepting the rose and no long speeches from Kaitlyn before she gave it to him. Not wanting the date to end, she asks him if he wants to come back to her room, “yeah”. Why would Nick say no to that? Realizing this is the episode she has sex with Nick being all of the promos gave you the heads up about that. We just wasn’t sure it happened with Nick and where it would happen.

kaitlyn and nick in hotel room dublinAnd no time is wasted when they go into her room and you hear the sheets rustling, the heaving breathing and the kissing. The rest was left to our imagination as the camera person in the room was picking up the sound from behind the door.

I think Chris Harrison was right, this is the most dramatic season of the Bachelorette. What I thought was going to be boring, Nick just bought it home. Reminds me so much of Andi season. It would have been such a snoozefest without Nick being there and making women feel like women. Yum yum!

And while Shawn is upset by the mere fact that Nick is with Kaitlyn and that he didn’t get a one on one date, I don’t think anyone noticed Nick didn’t come back to his room. Not quite sure how the set up was with the room stay, I’m sure all the guys had their own room (not like ABC can’t afford it). Usually the guys are still up waiting to hear what happened on the date, so they should have noticed when he didn’t come back, even with separate rooms.

kaitlyn on balcony in dublinThe next day, while Kaitlyn doesn’t blatantly admit that she had sex with him (could it be the glow on her face gave it away), she did mention in her interview it wasn’t the act that made her feel guilty it was more feeling guilty about the other guys who are there and she doesn’t want them to know what happened. While she was on the balcony talking to one of the producers, her attitude changed from glowing to sheer terror at the fear of any of the guys finding out what she did, most likely Shawn only because she has a connection with him that noticeably is not with the other guys.

The next day while Nick was sharing his date, I’m watching the intense scene play out in the hopes that Nick doesn’t open up his big mouth and Joe didn’t help when he mentioned how Shawn has extra time with Kaitlyn recently. That comment only seemed to make Nick talk more so he can throw jabs at Shawn.

For the group date, here was something that’s been never done before. Kaitlyn played dead for an Irish wake so the guys can each share their moments and/or experience in remembrance of Kaitlyn – the only one who took it seriously was Ben Z. due to his mom passing when he was a teenager. He asked the guys to give them a moment and left them both alone so he can share his feelings, vividly upset and when he wanted to make it light hearted as he mentioned in his interview. His feelings superseded the jokes and he said exactly how he felt.

kaitlyn irsh wake bachelorette

After the Irish wake they meet at the Guinness Storehouse where she greets all the guys with a rose on the table waiting to be handed out for the group date. Poor Ben Z, he seems so lost in the shuffle right now. He pulled Kaitlyn aside to talk more about the whole Irish wake thing but I think this is just a relationship lost. I don’t see anything happening here. It’s pretty much done and it’s sad because he seems like such a great guy but this is not a couple that should be together.

As for Kaitlyn and Jared, I almost feel like every time he’s with her, he has his face in hers. Like give the girl some air dude. I feel like when I’m watching him I’m left wondering, when was the last time he had a girlfriend.  Kaitlyn mentions in her interview that the last time she saw Jared he mentioned he was falling in love with her which she thought was really nice….if that’s not an indicator that she’s not feeling the same way, I’m not sure what is. I can’t even watch him kissing her. He reminds me of a fish.

kaitlyn_shawn jealousShawn is still harping on her date with Nick showing clear jealousy looming over his head like a halo looming over a saint. I’m not sure at this point if anyone suspects Kaitlyn had sex with Nick but I have a feeling it will come out somehow. And he takes full advantage of his one on one time, instead of focusing on Nick with his one on one time with her, he shares pictures of his family and shares a little bit of his life with her, which is the right thing to do. The last thing anyone wants on a date is to talk about another person which is what Queen Joshua did that’s why he’s not there anymore.

With the rose on the table, Kaitlyn decides to give Jared the rose….huh? After all that Shawn share with her?

Really she wants to spend the rest of the evening with Fish? I can’t.

Now here’s where she wasted a good rose after giving the rose to Jared the Fish they share a moment with none other than The Cranberries!!!!!! Having Shawn miss out on the perfect moment????? So wrong, wrong, wrong!

The-Bachelorette-the-cranberries

It’s crazy how the guys are sitting there wondering what the fuck did Jared do that they didn’t do. Believe me, I’m wondering the same damn thing.

Shawn is clearly having a hard time with the whole process, pulls one of the producers aside and says to him that he can’t do it anymore. It’s become too much for him and he goes to her hotel room to confront her and find out what is going on….

The drama continues next week.

PS: I need a Nick in my life who will kiss me just like that! LOL

The Bachelorette E5 – Goodbye to Clint and Hello to Nick V. @KaitlynBristowe @chrisbharrison

IMG_8921The producers have learned a long time ago that just having one person courting a bunch of suitors or in the case bachelors just wasn’t enough. So why not turn up the heat by bringing in past bachelors into the fold of current suitors.

In this lovely episode of the Bachelorette, the episode picks up where it left off last week with Clint being confronted about his attitude after he feed a bunch of lies to Kaitlyn telling her that his sole intention was to be with her when he blandly told JJ (who also needs to go) that he just wanted a rose.

I think for the next season whoever the Bachelor/Bachelorette is, the producers should find people at least two of them where they are not into the them at all and solely there for camera time.

Oh wait, that’s already happening. Scratch that idea. Stupid me.

Anyway, so here’s this little skinny woman confronting this buff man on how he needs to go because there’s nothing left to say in regards to anything that will transpire between them. Doesn’t Clint remind you of someone that ended up having a date with himself in Bachelor Paradise, Kalon McMahon. He was the one Emily Maynard cursed out due to his baggage comment referring to Emily’s daughter.

Part of me felt it sucked to see Clint go. I was truly enjoying that relationship he and JJ were developing and it would have been nice to see the Bachelorette on a flip side of things.

I mean what man has cried on any season of the Bachelor for another man. He was in tears and couldn’t even talk. And after folding over in his tears he got up and smacked himself in the face (yes smacked himself hard) and told said out loud to himself to pull himself together.

After the commercial break, Kaityln begins her speech on another night of drama and without finishing her speech she pulls Chris Harrison aside to ask him if she can talk to him for a minute. I was pretty sure at the point that she was not going to have a rose ceremony and when she came back, my best guess was correct as she opt of sending anyone home.

I have to say, while she was talking to  C.H., Ian who hasn’t really gotten any time with her began asking all the guys who had time with her and how it was unfair those who didn’t get a rose should have fair game to spend time with her and assure themselves still in the running for Kaityln’s heart.

So even though no roses were handed out and everyone was safe, no one was really happy because that meant they were still dealing with JJ who insists he was not here for a man but here for a girlfriend. Okay…JJ, whatever you say. Sooner or later, you can’t deny who you truly are inside. Be free, my son, be free!

And with the C.H. announces to all the men to pack their bags as they are leaving the mansion forever and the next trip in their journey to find love will be in New York City.

The next day the group of men happily waits for the date card as they check out their hotel room in the heart of New York, Times Square. Shawn who’s confident that he and Kaitlyn have something special (also I think he’s the one that will be the man standing in the end) was excited to pursue the prospect of being with her and spending more time together.

The date card arrives for the first group date in New York is as follows: Jonathon, Justin, Ben Z., Corey, Ryan, Tanner, JJ, Shawn. “Let’s keep our love fresh”

Yet another date where the guys get a chance to make fools of themselves by rapping and walks in Doug E. Fresh (….Let’s keep our love “fresh”).

Everyone makes a choice of who they are going to battle, with Doug E. Fresh being a mentor. Really now, you can’t expect for any of these guys, where rapping is truly an art form, to rap within five minutes and be ready to battle it out in front of a live audience.

But…this is The Bachelor where the never ending ways of making a fool out of everyone is the goal.

In the back of the room, the camera pans to Nick V. and Ashley from last season, remember she was the virgin who left hysterical crying after Farmer Chris ditched her and Kelsey in Deadwood, SD. (It was pretty funny).

I have to say boy was Kaitlyn giddy when she met Nick for the first time. It was almost as if we forgot how the guys just made fools of themselves rapping, that Doug E. Fresh was their mentor, where did all that go? It was the Nick V. and Kaitlyn show.

Was love unfolding or pure lust? Remember that when all these bachelor/bachelorette people come together in their parties, etc. who knows who they are meeting and bedding at the same time. It’s one big orgy.

While Kaitlyn takes the time out to talk to Nick and find out why he’s there, he admits that he wanted to meet her and then the big question, “how long are you here”, and Nick replies, “well that’s up to you, isn’t it”.

Talk about awkwardness. Hello, hello, think Kaitlyn, think…..you’re the Bachelorette.  You have the guys downstairs waiting for you.

After spending a bit of time with Nick, it seems “reality” strikes, “hey I’m a group date, Kaitlyn tells Nick she needs to think about it over night.

Boy oh boy that Nick is a charmer. If I were Kaitlyn, I would have bought him down on the group date and rapped to all the guys, here’s Nick V from Andi sea….

I’m not going there.

Moving on.

When Nick was interviewed he said that last season was extraordinary but not that much fun. I guess that’s another way of saying that Andi was a bore in bed…makes me wonder why it didn’t work out with Josh.

Back on Entertainment Cruises, as the guys approach, here is Kaitlyn still stuck in the Nick mode and it’s clear she’s different now that Nick has shown his face to be part of the game and Kaitlyn does admit she’s interested in having Nick there with the guys.

It’s funny how all the guys had something negative to say about Nick throwing Andi under the bus saying they slept together.  Look shit happens, I mean really? Does anyone think that anyone going in the fantasy suite doesn’t do anything whether they kiss and tell or not.

And even after Kaitlyn admits to the guys that she wants to bring Nick, here is Nick waiting for her on the boat, waiting with open arms and a kiss in tow. If anyone thinks Nick is going home, think again. I think I felt that kiss through the television screen!

Back at the hotel the date card arrives and Jared gets the one on one date. The guys still on the boat, Kaitlyn comes back after spending her one on one time with Nick she gives the group date rose to Justin, leaving Tanner to comment that it was probably the least meaningful rose in the history of the Bachelor. Really Tanner? Where is your one on one date card?

The next day after much sleep and thought, Kaitlyn called Nick to set up a meeting so she can make a choice on what she decided to do and while she said after a month of being with these guys and claiming to have serious feelings for them (one month people), she met up with Ashley from Farmer Chris season while getting her hair done to discuss her feelings with Nick…while Ashley says that it may be lust, I didn’t think that was sound advice.

Needless to say bypassing all the stupid drama with the cab ride and Kailtyn walking to 6th and B to meet Nick, Kailtyn made her decision and decided to keep Nick.

I was not surprised by her choice. Look at how giddy she was when she first met him.

Anyone feel like the one on one date with Jared was a yawner. I was feeling like I wanted more Nick and Kaitlyn.  Oh but we had to put the promos in for The Met and Neal Lane jewelry. It’s funny how they showed Jared running his mouth and how they made it seem like Kaitlyn’s mind somewhere else and I’m sure it was. Jared seems like a really sweet guy but he’s definitely not the one for Kaitlyn and I don’t see him as one of the top four.

Back at the hotel, the guys can’t seem to let go of the fact that Nick is going to be part of the group as the date card arrives the next group date is as follows: Ian, Chris (Cupcake), Joe, Joshua and Ben H. The clue is, “Let’s play”.

Notice who keeps going on the group date and who gets the one on one date.

Back at The Met, Kaitlyn who seems back in the game, gives Jared a rose….I feel this is a date with a brother and sister…it just doesn’t mesh well at all. The date ends in a helicopter ride, so easy to fall in love huh…

The next day after the one on one with Jared, Kaitlyn stops by the guys room to tell them that she’s decided to keep Nick and that he will be moving in that night. This didn’t sit well with the guys at all and that he’s going to be part of the rose ceremony. I think if anyone thinks that Nick is taking away a rose from them, I have news, I don’t see Ian moving forward in this episode.

The group date was another promotion of the play Aladin where the guys had to do an audition and appear in the play later on that night.

cupcake aladinAnother clownish performance with the biggest clown being Cupckae Chris (no surprise there) and guess who got the part while all the guys went back to the hotel. Yep, you guessed it, Cupcake Chris. Joshua’s point about how Cupcake Chris behaved during the audition if he did that he would’ve gotten beat up when he got home. Very funny! Thankfully they did not have to sing, because if I were in that audience and bought a ticket I would want my money back immediately.  The guys were watching with Kailtyn and Cupcake to do their part in the play, they realized all of the audition was basically a waste of time. There could have been better things to do but I keep forgetting this is a promotional item.

While Cupcake and Kaitlyn were in the dressing room waiting for their call, Chris is pushing himself on her when he said, “gimmie kiss”….Gimmie kiss? UGH.

I can tell she only did it just to do it and then go away. She was more excited being on the stage and that was it.  Even after their five seconds on the stage while he kept pressing his dry lips on her she turned her head away like no more.

Back at the hotel, the guys are waiting for Nick to show up while complaining as to why he’s there. He’s there because Kaitlyn has interest in him and they just don’t seem to get that.

Sadly the cupcake got a rose.

And Nick got on the elevator off to the lions den…
