This show has me seriously confused. I just found out last night that people leave each week but new people come on the show each week. So how does someone win in the end? Please explain in the comments below. Sorry I’m such a noob, it’s my first time 😉
What I learned from Watching Bachelor in Paradise is that Ashley I thinks I’m an old lady because I’m 30. Ashley, you’re 27, in 3 short years you’ll be an “old lady” too. Anyone who looks at Tenley and thinks she old, it’s a bit delusional. Sorry girl.
And look, I am not trying to hate on Tenley in any way but didn’t it feel weird when she went after JJ? Like she was making out with him just to get to stay in Paradise another few days? Something about the whole situation makes me feel uncomfortable. She barely had any interaction with JJ and when the rose ceremony came near, she immediately goes up to him and put her legs over him (pretty intimate in my book) and kisses him. Again, NOTHING against Tenley. I don’t think she is sleazy in any way. I think the opposite, she’s super wholesome! But something about this place makes people act in ways that they never would in the real world. Do you guys agree at all? Or am I crazy? Tell me what you think in the comments.
I guess the only way we will know if she is really into JJ is if she is still “into” him next week when the tables are turned and the women have the power to give the roses. But even then, is she playing a long term strategy? Who knows. It’s just something that made me feel weird about the show and I wanted to talk about it with all of you.
Clare seems to be a polarizing person this season. People seems to love her or hate her. I personally REALLY respect her so far. She could have totally lied to Mikey in order to secure a rose for herself (before she knew that Jared would give her one). But instead of leading him on, she was super honest with him and told him she wanted to explore other relationships. I really respect that because she could have been sending herself home by being that honest. That tells me that Clare isn’t there to play the game, she is genuinely looking for a relationship. Let me add a caveat to that and say that I’ve been SUPER skeptical about people who say that go on Bachelor in Paradise to “Find Love.” Let’s be real. People constantly joke about how “dirty” it is for a reason. Did you hear what Jared said about the hot tub on After Paradise? Yeah. Bachelor in Paradise in the Tinder of the Bachelor Franchise. Is it possible to find love? Totally. You could find love in a strip club, but that doesn’t mean you walk into a strip club thinking you’ll find it. Well maybe some guys do, but that’s a whole other weird topic. Ha! All that said, something tells me that Clare might actually be in this for love. In addition to the the exposure of being on a prime-time TV show – all of the contestants just want to be on a Bachelor show again. Which there is nothing wrong with! I am all for people going on Bachelor in Paradise! Being on TV can be super fun! But just be honest about why you’re there.
Ok, that’s all I’ve got for this week. I can totally see why people get sucked into this show. I guess it’s just hard for me to blog about it because I don’t want to be negative or hurt anyone by writing about it. But I also want to be REAL with all of you. Which is really hard to do without calling people out for strange behavior. And there is A LOT of strange behavior on this show. Not sure if I’ll continue to blog about it. Do you guys want me to? Any suggestions on how to “write nice” but still be honest and real?
Thank for reading loves!
On another note, if I was off to paradise I totally know what outfit I would pack. Neon and a Mexico vacay are a match made in well…paradise
