#TheBachelorette – Two Men Plus Ben @kaitlynbristowe @viallnicholas28 @chrisbharrison

Kaitlyn+Bachelorette cryingWatching The Bachelorette you almost forget one more guy is in this episode….

Since it’s down to the wire with three men left, instead of meeting the families first, the fantasy dates came first. Why they did that, I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s easier for Kaitlyn to have sex with the rest of the guys before she brings them home to families?

Last episode we left off with Shawn parading into Nick’s room accusing him of being a liar and full of shit about his feelings towards Kaitlyn. Furthermore, bringing up things that were said during Andi’s season which I think is a bit out of turn.

Shawn wasn’t there, so he will believe anything bad about Nick to justify his jealousy.

Nick in turn accused Shawn of meeting some girl and having sex with her the same night. That wouldn’t be any new news now….how many guys in the world have done the same thing.

While the boys are bickering, Kaitlyn has her overnight with Ben.

Let’s analyze Ben for a little bit. Cool looking guy, sexy in his own “country club” kind of a way. Definitely can see stability in the relationship BUT is Kaitlyn the right girl for him….nah.

Kaitlyn is a girl all over the place, this was the reason why I didn’t see her with Chris Soules at all and every time he gave her a rose, it was just a deeper of heart break. It’s almost as if he’s a “Chris” reincarnated and definitely not a match here.

Their date was beautiful though. Seeing the sights of Ireland, who wouldn’t fall in love?

During their conversation, you can tell Ben is fully invested in this relationship; unknowingly she had sex with Nick and she told Shawn he, “was it”, too soon the in the game to tell someone that, especially someone like Shawn who’s possessive and jealous all at the same time.

Kaitlyn says in her interview she can picture a life with Ben, but I think right now being with him it’s just the calming part of the insanity that’s brewing between Shawn and Nick, and mentioning being with Ben feels good, and she “feels” like she’s falling in love with Ben.

That’s code for those feelings are going to change once she’s in between Shawn and Nick.

It’s too bad because Ben is a great guy, or so it seems…..maybe he can be the next Bachelor, or maybe Nick? That would make an interesting season.

Ben and Kaitlyn have their intimate moment (I’m sure they had sex too since she mentions they only got a half hour of sleep).

the-bachelorette-shawn-strips-naked-on-golf-courseShe meets up with Shawn for their one on one for a golf date. Gifting him a bright pink shirt and blue pants, I have to say, Shawn can wear just about anything.

Their date was good in the beginning; they were golfing and having fun that is until Kaitlyn brings up an idea of a game of, “truth or dare”. Sometimes a game like Truth or Dare can go wrong.

The dare was to unclothe Shawn and have him golf naked. I think Kaitlyn will do anything to see a naked man!

During their date, later that evening, Kaitlyn brings up the topic of Shawn having this one night stand, and why he hates Nick, etc. etc.

Shawn admits he did have a conversation with Nick and believes Nick’s has ulterior motives which are not good for Kaitlyn. The Eskimo brother’s topic came up….and Kaitlyn mentions in her interview she needs security and assurance he’s going to be a loyal husband because of statement.

Ummm Kaitlyn, here’s a memo for you, you had sex with Nick. Can he question if you’re going to be a loyal wife or is this part of the exploration?

They decide to go to the fantasy suite which shows nothing, no kissing, nothing, just Kaitlyn putting the DND tag and closing the door.

The next day as Shawn leaves Kaitlyn’s room and Nick is waiting around and asks Shawn does he have a few minutes. Umm, WTF?

Nick felt as though he was blasted when Shawn decided to run into his room and he felt he needed to respond to Shawn.

Shawn believes the conversation they had proved Nick was a smooth talker. I missed that part, because I didn’t see proof other than two men who are fighting over a woman who’s not all that.

Nick questioned Kaitlyn’s motives after Shawn mentioned he and Kaitlyn spent the night together.

Now having a conversation with Chris Harrison who acts as the “advisor”, she admits Ben is a great guy next to  Shawn who exudes both of the “drama intensity” and humor where she doesn’t get the same with Ben. She believes though Ben will make a great husband…..she doesn’t say this but clearly it’s what’s on her mind, not just for her.

Nick, however, having feelings for him, she questions his loyalty towards being in a committed relationships whereas she doesn’t question that with Shawn because he’s a jealous freak. So she knows he wants to be with her but the jealousy can put a hurting on their relationships. (Any relationship for that matter)

I’m still stuck on why they didn’t do the hometown dates. Are they doing budget cuts?

When Kaitlyn stands before all three guys, she tells them she’s falling in love and how incredible how all the overnight dates have been. how much they have shared with her and she thanked them. Caught up in the moment of emotion, she walked away to gather herself, knowing who she was letting go. She comes back to them and reaffirms all she can do is follow her heart.

IMG_9614

IMG_9608

She gives the first rose to Nick and then to Shawn which leaves Ben standing there with nothing.  After Ben says goodbye to Shawn and Nick, Kaitlyn asked if she can walk Ben out. She tells Ben how frustrating it is , he’s such a great guy but she doesn’t feel the same connection with him.

IMG_9620Before they say goodbye he tells her she looks great and he will miss her. In the car heading back to a hotel I guess, he said he wasn’t expecting to go home, but he’s a different person and was able to open up and have feelings again.

So perhaps this is a good thing. He learned how to open up I think it’s what you do afterwards when you fall in love and it doesn’t work out. Do you close yourself up? Is it harder to open up to someone new or do you hurry up and find a rebound who can give you that good feeling?

After the rose ceremony, Kaitlyn comes back to do a final salute to both of the men she chose. A very quiet drink, Nick hugs Kaitlyn in the anticipation she will see him at hometown dates and then hugs Shawn. She walks out, leaving them alone. Shawn finishes his drink and slams the glass on the table saying nothing to Nick. Nick then quietly puts his glass on the table saying nothing as the camera just pans on both of them like, what are we waiting for?

Kaitlyn heads to Utah and meets up with Nick. Nick admits he has no question he is in love with Kaitlyn and has no reservations whatsoever.  While all this exchange of love is being shared between Nick and Kaitlyn, back at the hotel, in a room, sits a group of people with uncomfortable anticipation…Nick’s family. Not happy at the fact he is going through this again, his tearful mom, makes his youngest sister cry, while one of his sister’s looks on not very happy.

After meeting Kaitlyn, they all sit and goof around until Maria pulls Kaitlyn aside to have a talk with her. She bought up the Andi season and her concerns with her feelings for Nick. After Maria, followed his brother and Bella, the youngest sibling who asked about Canada and does she really love Nick. Yeah, I would asking the same thing too, but she didn’t admit she loved him but told her she cares about Nick, “a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot”.

IMG_9631Having conversations with his Mom and Nick’s mom having a conversation with him, you can see there’s a big reluctance. While she can distinguish the difference between Kaitlyn and Andi, she’s hopeful, but still afraid for her son.

Nick assures his mother the difference between Kaitlyn and Andi, is during the Andi season he was over confident, not realizing where he and Andi where going in their relationship.

I can understand why his mother’s upsets; it’s not the ideal or conventional way to meet someone.

Kaitlyn couldn’t wait to get Nick back into her room after a successful meeting with his reluctant family.

The next day, Kaitlyn meets Shawn’s family and Shawn says in his interview , he’s excited to tell his , “wife” , he’s in love with her.

Pretty presumptuous if you ask me, I mean what if she didn’t pick him?

Shawn’s father mentioned something legible. Is this something where they are caught up in the moment or is it true love.

Just ask everyone who didn’t last in their relationships.

Like Nick’s family, they are a little bit more realistic in their goals of what they are looking for Shawn. And while Shawn is so love with Kaitlyn, he mentions if any of his family members have one doubt, it will not work out.

Look, while they are all in this position where Kaitlyn is talking about her googingly eyes and first impression rose, the fact is the reality will still happen when the cameras are off and they begin to live real life.

When Shawn gets the opinion of his sister’s apparently they gave rave reviews. I’m not sure how much you can review a person in just a few hours. Well maybe you can. I mean when I met my sister’s husband, I knew he was a piece of shit from the get go. So perhaps it is possible.

IMG_9634When Shawn’s father approaches him, he didn’t see to waste any time. The first thing out of his mouth was, “what the hell is going on”.

Hmm not a good question to start off with but I get it.

Shawn, still stuck on the, “you’re it” comment, he shares with his dad what Kaitlyn said when there was ten guys left. I guess this was his way of reassuring his father Kaitlyn is the girl for him.

Now that Kaitlyn has met the family and back in the room with Shawn, he tell her, there’s one more thing he needs to tell her,  he’s not falling for her but he IS in love with her.

Disappointed she didn’t tell him she loved him back (I think that’s supposed to happen at the end Shawn), Kaitlyn goes back to her room bawling her eyes out, now more confused than ever on who she plans on choosing.

Poor Nick.

OH well. Until the Final Rose.

I will be blogging on The Men Tell All after the season is over!

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…

The Bachelorette E4 Bye Bye Kupah and Broke Back Clint @KaitlynBristowe @ChrisBHarrison

kaitlyn bKupah which the episode ended previous last week was the joke of the episode as he yelled like an idiot instead of just taking the rejection in stride.

As I had predicted the week before, now that Kupah was eliminated before the rose ceremony, that gave Tony another chance at what he believes to be a universal love.

Jared, who was beaten at the boxing match in the last episode was now concerned whether or not he was going to receive a rose, because he did admit that he voted for Britt to be the next Bachelorette.

Following in the tradition with farmer Chris and his season the rose ceremony now filters over to the next episode and the rose ceremony is as follows:  Jared, Ben H., Shawn, Jonathan, Tanner, Cupcake Chris, Ryan, Justin, Ian, Joshua, Joe, Corey, Tony

Anyone paying attention to all of the slobber that Tony was talking about how he has the eyes of a child and how he gave up everything and all of that he’s invested. Did anyone forget that he initially voted for Britt.  Also when he was talking with one of the guys in the last episode when he was talking to one of the other guys he “mistakenly” called Kaitlyn, Britt.

I’m not quite sure what commitment or investment he has made when it seems that his mind has been somewhere else.

The next morning the guys are awakened by to sumo wrestlers with a gone and screaming in Japanese. Apparently this was the preparation for what the next group date will be.

During JJ’s interview he mentioned how much he loved Japanese culture. I’m starting to think coupled with last weeks episode that JJ is very much full of shit. The six guys chosen for this sumo wrestler and group date were as follows:

Tony, JJ, Clint, Joe, Shawn, Cupcake

Tony took the sumo wrestling very seriously and when Kaitlyn approached him to talk to him, he kept walking because he is not into anything aggressive. Clearly this isn’t a guy who’s into fun.

sumo date bacheloretteJJ then comes in trying to play hero in his big ass diaper wear.  Not necessary because Kaitlyn isn’t really that dumb to figure out that Tony is a child, period.

But then again it makes you wonder because Kaitlyn is trying to adhere to his sensitivity and if that’s the case why didn’t she give Kupah another chance even though he was acting just as an idiot just in a form of aggression.

You would think by now with all of his speeches about being sensitive that she would realize that they have nothing in common and maybe she should be questioning why is he still single. I cannot say enough how ridiculous the guys looked in these over sized diapers but Clint proved his manhood and ended it with a selfie with a bunch of fans watching.

Meanwhile back at the mansion, Tony was yet again complaining about the purpose of why he was there in the first place. It didn’t surprise me that he would pack his bags and leave instead of staying for the rose ceremony and not getting a rose. For a person who says that he sees the universe in a child’s eyes sure had the potty mouth of a truck driver. Last not forget that Tony voted for Britt. Why all of a sudden there was this passion for Kaitlyn?

(Note to the editors on how Tony was packing during the day, but yet left at night.) He said his goodbyes, said it was not her fault, and he was out like deuces.

While Cupcake stole some time with Kaitlyn, Clint confessed to JJ that he had no plans to pursue her and that if she had an interest in him she would pursue him. Lmao. Really? She’s the bachelorette….

Shawn, who I think Kaitlyn will wind up with got the rose for the group date.

The next day, Chris Harrison set up the one on one date with Ben Z. No surprise that the date would be a marketing promo for a movie and not really about trust and protection. I guess the dates of hanging off buildings are long over.

While the date was “suspenseful”, I have to say that Ben Z. was pretty much in control of the date in figuring out the pieces to the puzzle of this thriller escape.

IMG_8934Having shared the story of the death of his mom and want transpired, it pretty much explained his demeanor and his need to control. And while that’s all well and good, it begs the question of how well would he handle any relationship where a woman is emotional and needy?

And while Ben and Kaitlyn are getting to know each other better, the date card arrives and Tanner, who hasn’t had much of a connection with Kaitlyn is hoping to get some kind of one on one time with her.

The follows are chosen for the group date:  Jonathan, Ben H., Joshua, Ryan, Jared, Tanner

And cut back to Ben and Kaitlyn, who are now in the hot tub sipping on champagne, she excused herself to retrieve the rose, gave him the, “you’re the greatest guy” speech and offered him the rose and of course he accepted.

For the group date, another round of major embarrassments, the guys have to teach children about sex education. Personally, highly inappropriate and not to mention, tasteless. I’m sure the parents to these poor children who were subjected to have to hear this kind of shit from a show that displays in order for you to find love is to ensure you fuck the other person over.

Back at the mansion, Justin observed a deep love going on with Clint and JJ and if anyone watched Unreal, we all know there are cameras all around the mansion and outside of the mansion, trust that while we all like to believe that Clint and JJ have some “thing” going on, as Quinn (the character on UnReal) says, give me something for the camera.

IMG_8922I thought it was kinda cute. But we all know that there isn’t a gay thing going on. I mean after all, men do take the time out to squeeze another man’s back zits. (More on this at the end of my blog)

Back at school, Ryan was first up describing the female anatomy. While he did a terrible job, boy was he cute up there!

While all the guys took turns, Kaitlyn lets out of the bag that the school thing was a prank but the guys don’t it yet.

Thank goodness because if this was real, it would have been in POOR taste of the Bachelorette. The only guy who actually showed any kind of romance in describing love was Ben who mixed in the personal experience of being there.

When Kaitlyn had her one on one with Joshua, she commented on why he’s a bit slower in the romance department because he didn’t get his first kiss till college. And while she admits he needs to step it up the fact is in real life, relationships are not a race and quite honestly, Joshua is too good for Kaitlyn.

Kaitlyn and Jared. Where to begin? Zero chemistry. If anyone believes that Kaitlyn is into the fish kisser, I’m at a loss. But we all know he’s getting a rose, for sure. It’s episode 4 and Jared is already falling in love, however, Ben received the rose, leaving Jared questioning WTF?

IMG_8932Are you believing Kaitlyn loves kissing Jared?

Now for the rose ceremony. JJ, who’s super confident in getting a rose actually spent more time with Clint. If it were between Clint and JJ they would both offer each other a rose and accept.

Kaitlyn mentions that she heard there was friction in the house. What friction? Did she hear the rumor right? Lol…. UnReal.

Clint wasted no time grabbing Kaitlyn and feeding her a bunch of lies and she fell for it, the other guys were none to ready to rat Clint out for his lies. Even admitting on camera to JJ that he’s not into her at all he just wanted a rose.

Of course this raises the drama on the set and Kaitlyn pulls Clint aside to confront him and the rumors and once again the rose ceremony filters to next week’s episode. (No surprise there seems to be a habit now)

Until then.

Oh here are more screen shots of Clint….enjoy.IMG_8919 IMG_8920 IMG_8921

#TheBachelorette Season 11 E 2 The Decision @ChrisBHarrison @kaitlynbristowe

The Bachelorette Part II

the-bachelorette-recap-kaitlyn-wins-men-s-votes-britt-feels-embarrassedWhen Chris Harrison approached Britt, he was the bearer of bad news telling her that she was not chosen to be the Bachelorette and it was time for her to go home.

When Kaitlyn came into the room, you can see some of the men were excited and some were masking their faces really well.

Ian who was there for Kaitlyn from the beginning will probably not last very long.

Joshua, who’s a welder made a rose for her will probably not last every long either since he lives on a farm and we already been there done that.

Chris Harrison pulls out the First Impression rose and then of course all the men step up their game.

Tony who’s completely perplexed, because he came for Kaitlyn but then changed his mind and voted for Britt, wasn’t sure how to proceed.

Jared who initially was interested in Kaitlyn and then changed his mind and voted for Britt was forthcoming with Kaitlyn in telling her who he voted for. Kaitlyn then comes to the realization that there are men who are probably not there for her. Helloooooo?!?

Jonathon who voted for Britt also didn’t have a problem sticking around for Kaitlyn and basically said in so many words he had to rearrange with his emotions. Really? I mean come on. Be honest. This is all about staying on television. Another one that won’t last.

Chris the dentist wasted no time planting a kiss on her after his cupcake entrance, even though just before then, JJ seemed to win over Kaitlyn emotionally.

bachelorette-shawn first imprression roseAnd with much effort of the dentist, he didn’t garner the first impression rose, Shawn did and was able to plant no one but two long kisses from Kaityln who was obviously very much into him.

Now for the first Rose Ceremony. Kaitlyn handed the roses as follows:

Chris (the dentist)
Ben H.
J.J.
Joe
Kupah (voted for Britt)
Daniel (voted for Britt)
Ryan B.
Joshua
Tony (voted for Britt)

In the middle of the ceremony, Brady stops the ceremony and ask Kaitlyn if he can speak to her. While all the men are freaking out thinking that Brady is trying to get his way of getting a rose, she comes back to inform the guys that Brady has chosen to leave because his heart was with the woman who left a few hours ago.

After talking with Chris Harrison and asking him to help him get together with Britt, he leaves saying, “The risk of love, whatever the consequence, is always, always worth it.”

The ceremony continued on….

Clint
Corey S.
Jonathon (voted for Britt)
Cory Shiver
Ben Z.
Tanner
Ian
Justin
Jared (voted for Britt)

Who went home:

Carpool guy, Stripper guy, and other not memorable guys walking out of the mansion.

The highlights were interesting. As you can try and guess who she’s with what looks like one on one dates with Clint, Ben Z., Jared, Shawn but then something changes, when Nick. V. from the Andi season comes in and it seems the way she says his name that she’s been with him before. However, it doesn’t seem as though she didn’t have sex with him but with someone else.

Maybe Chris Harrision was right. Maybe this will be the most dramatic season yet.

#TheBachelorette Most Dramatic Season…so says @ChrisBHarrison Season 11 Episode 1

The Bachelorette Season 11 Episode 1

kaitlyn bacheloretteAs we venture into another dramatic season of the Bachelorette – the producers who had trouble picking between Kaitlyn and Britt decided to do a repeat of what they did with Byron Velvick and the “other guy” who didn’t get chosen to be the Bachelor way back when the Bachelor was in it’s early stages.

If you recall, later in that episode they bought two women back from the previous season one of the being Mary Delgado. Everyone was rooting for them even though the women that were already vying for his love early on were furious that two women came in with Byron having lost interest in them and pursued Mary.

Unfortunately, the great love of Mary and Byron was all lost when Mary appeared in the news, having been arrested for abusing Byron.

Probably THE MOST DRAMATIC after the final rose yet. We all know Chris Harrison, everything is the most dramatic.

Hello!!! Anyone that’s watching this, the idea of the show is supposed to be dramatic.

So here we are with two Bachelorettes, (BTW I cheated months ago and already knew who the Bachelorette was going to be). Without delaying it, Kaitlyn became the next Bachelorette and my first initial thought was, “ugh another Jen Scheft boring season.” But after seeing the previews and Nick V. making out with Kaitlyn and the heavy breathing, I quickly changed my mind. I felt like

Before the women met the men, we had a chance to see the edited version of the men they chose to spotlight on.

One of them was Jonathon who he works in the automotive industry from Detroit who was interested in Britt and he has a child. Really? I mean come on. Britt is a free spirited woman. I cannot see her tied down, living in Detroit taking care of someone else’s kid. Next….

Joe from Kentucky, (small town once again), expressed interest in Kaitlyn. I think after the whole Farmer Chris thing, we’re done with farming.

Josh, who lives in Chicago and studying for the bar exam, has an interesting job to pay the bills as a male dancer. He doesn’t look that tall, however, the little bit of clip they showed stripping, looks like the third leg has a stand of its own. Oh he didn’t express in any bachelorette in particular.

Brady, from Nashville and a musician expressed a big interest with Britt.

The small town country boy, Joshua, from Idaho (another farmer in the middle of nowhere), would like to see Kaitlyn as the next Bachelorette.

Ian from Venice Beach, is an Executive Recruiter and he’s a runner. He shared he was hit by a car and essentially left for dead. Through surgeries and therapy, he was able to run again. With no ifs, ands or but’s, his pick would be Kaityln.

Nerdy but cuite, Jared from Rhode Island and superhero, “Love Man”, has very strong interest in Kaitlyn.

Meditative and Healer, Tony, who’s soft spoken and has a relationship with his plants, ready for love with Britt. I’m not sure where they found this guy but he reminds me of the male version of Ashley, really loopy and doesn’t make any sense.

Ben Z., sports player, already disclosed his mother’s passing at the age of 14. I’m sure we will be hearing a lot about his mom throughout the season. He was also open to the opportunity for both Britt and Kaitlyn.

As each man came out of the limo and introduced themselves, the ones that were interested in Britt went to her first and then greeted Kaitlyn like she was secondary. What was funny is that Jared who had so much interested in Kaitlyn, came out of the limo and went running to Britt first. Even as each man went inside the mansion they were all rooting for Britt, oh so it seemed. It was funny on how many people were into Britt, and I’m not sure how people were taken by Kaitlyn.

Of course one of the most memorable entrances out of the limo was Josh…he didn’t have to say a thing LOL.

Shawn who came out of the limo practically sweeping Britt off her feet, actually was there for Kaitlyn. A perfect example of how deceptive men can be.

Speaking of deception, Kaitlyn decides to run into the mansion to say hi to the guys, which probably garnered her some votes.

Tony who finally met Britt and spoke this romantic poetry walks over to Kaitlyn and tells her the same thing to Britt that he said to Kaitlyn. He believes in love and he hopes the Universe provides….*barf*

Before the ladies got to the guys to get to know them, Ryan was already plastered and acting like a fucking idiot. Is he going to do another Jordan and come back and apologize for being a drunken idiot? Next….

I don’t want to get into the semantics of gifts, etc but after the intros and it came down to the wire when the men realized that they had to vote who was going to be the next Bachelorette is when the game began and all the men started inquiring who was going to vote for whom.

Many of the men that came out of the limo went to Britt first. She seemed to have a big following of men but then some of them who spoke to Kaitlyn started to change their minds about who they really wanted to get to know.

The yoga guy who was into Britt in the beginning and then said later he was here for Kaitlyn, put his hands on the voting box and said Britt’s box was pulsating. I’m confused. I thought he was there for Britt from the get go….

Seems hid deep connection with Britt didn’t hold weight since he didn’t have a problem accepting a rose from Kaitlyn.

The nerdy guy who’s a restaurant manager did the same thing. He was back and forth between Kaitlyn and Britt but I think in the end he chose Kaitlyn.

The highlight of the evening was Ryan M. who decided getting wasted and acting like an ass was going to get him far. Enter the new character in the Bachelor camp fetches Ryan to tell him that Chris Harrison would like to speak to him. We all know where this was going. In short, bye bye Ryan M. Chris Harrison sent him packing in a van LOL.

The stragglers left who hadn’t voted, Britt and Kaitlyn spent talking with them. It was clear from the beginning that Brady was not budging from Britt. Not within the least. He came there with the intention of being with Britt and he proved that in the rose ceremony when he pulled Kaitlyn aside and told her that his heart was with Britt and not with her and he needed to respond to that.

When Chris Harrison did finalize that the votes were in….to be continued.
