i have a guilty pleasure you guys and that guilty pleasure is the bachelor franchise. i fought the urge to watch for years and then last year gave in and have been obsessed ever since. i decided since i love this dang show so much, that i would do weekly recaps! i am starting a bit late into the season, so first impressions and all that jazz are something we're going to miss out on, but that's ok. we're starting to get into the episodes where the true colors are coming out and i've already picked out my favorite guys!
alright, now into the episode.
drama - week four starts out with a "to be continued" from last week where we see izzy talking to rachel about eric's "intentions". this word is overused so much on this show and it honestly cracks me up. from there lee (eye roll) starts to get involved and begins expressing his concerns to rachel as well. from there we see a full blown shouting match between eric, lee, and izzy. i am totally on eric's side here. i get that these guys have their "concerns", but like keep it to yourself. stop worrying so much about the other guys and just worry about yourself and making that connection with rachel. i feel as though the guys just take turns ganging up on one another and it gets old. they have more drama on the show than the girls do!
drama pt. 2- from there we see kenny getting some one on one time with rachel and then who show's up to cut in? lee. i have not liked that guy from the beginning and i'm honestly just like, what are you even still doing here?! that starts another shouting match between kenny and lee and honestly, it's just like, let it go. i get it, it's frustrating and in the moment i may react differently, but again, you are here for rachel, not to be friends with these other guys. if you're confident in who you are and don't let that BS drama get in the way, then you have nothing to worry about. she obviously is a smart girl and is not here to mess around.
swoon - rachel and bryan. oh my god, my heart, he is so dang sweet to her and so mature and you can really tell that he is one of her favorites. also PETER, he is my favorite! that salt and pepper hair and smile? swoon. similar to bryan he is super mature, stays out of the drama, and you can really tell she likes him.
rose ceremony (spoilers ahead) this rose ceremony made me so sad because diggy went home and he was one of my favorites. not only is he so handsome, he seems like such a genuine guy and it bummed me out that he didn't get more time on the show. and then when he was crying, it broke my heart! he's going to make someone so happy one day! unfortunately, the other two guys bryce and brady didn't really stand out to me so for them to go home, i wasn't surprised.
one on one date (dean) first all, dean is a little cutie and along side peter and bryan, is one of my favorites. their date was sweet and he was able to be vulnerable with her which basically broke my heart. he talked about the passing of him mom and you can guarantee i was sobbing the entire time. they also got to dance on stage during a live performance of russell dickerson. it was sweet and you could see how happy the two of them were, my heart was melting.
group date (boat and spelling bee) i can't even imagine trying to fight for someones attention amongst a group of attractive individuals. i'm sure it's intimidating and difficult as well. what the guys do to get her attention, however, is just comical. doing pushups with rachel on you back, josiah? making up raps about rachel, kenny and peter? it's hilarious and they're just doing what they can to stand out. the spelling bee was the second part of the group date and my first reaction was, i'd be fucking, fucked if that was me. also, can we talk about how the guys all pretty much got difficult words and then josiah got stunning, STUNNING and then the other guys got words like physiological, like what is up with that?! also speaking of josiah, what was up with he capri pants he was wearing?!
during the group date cocktail hour, peter really stood out to me. i can see their connection and i just adore them together. izzy spent his time with rachel again expressing his concerns about the other guys. he just needs to stop. take that time and get to know each other! STOP worrying about the competition. like ENOUGH. then, again, lee went and ran his mouth during his one on one and there was more drama between him and kenny. lee is obviously delirious and just needs to go. he and izzy are out of control.
overall this episode was good, but i am just over the drama with the boys. they need to stop worrying about each other and just spend their time with rachel getting to know her. the guys that she has an obvious connection with are the ones who stay out of the drama so maybe the rest of the house should follow their lead. also, lee is the absolute worst and is awful and a huge jerk and that's all i'm going to say about that.
