Kiss me? No thank you! Jojo and Wells’ kiss might go down as one of the most awkward in Bachelorette history. I mean they just have zero chemistry. Watching them slosh around in that suspended pool and kiss felt like watching a brother and sister kiss. Yuck. I honestly found it hard to watch. And I really like Wells (and I obviously adore Jojo), but sometimes two people just don’t click. I think it’s been pretty obvious from the get-go that Wells is not Jojo’s type. Heck Jordan, Robbie, and Chase are practically clones of each other. I still have a hard time telling them apart. So Jojo definitely has a type and Wells is, well – not it.
During the group date we saw a very interesting side of James Taylor. Honestly it wasn’t a very pretty side. I’ve been team JT all season! Heck, early on I was campaigning for him to be the next Bachelor but I do not see that happening now. He is much too insecure for the position. I honestly can’t even wrap my head around what he was trying to “warn” Jojo about. I mean I get that he doesn’t like Jordan much and feels Jordan is entitled, but the card game example he gave seemed so elementary in my opinion. I can’t even recall exactly what he said but it was something about Jordan thinking his rule in poker was right, and James Taylor’s rule was wrong. Well if arguing that your card game rules are right makes you entitled, then consider me as entitled as they come. Ha! I am ALWAYS arguing that my card game/board game rules are the right ones. Heck, I’ll argue my rules even if I know me and my siblings made up the rules when we were kids! It’s all in good fun, but it hardly makes someone entitled. I guess maybe we had to be there? In the end, I still really like James Taylor. He seems like such a good soul, but he made a mistake by showing that sort of insecurity last night.
Anyway, I don’t think Jojo should have taken what James Taylor said and brought it up to Jordan. I honestly think it may have pushed Jordan away a little bit. Jojo obviously still needs a lot of reassurance from him. She is clearly the most into him and wants him to be super into her too. And I think he is into her, but having to defend himself for a spat over a card game might have pushed him away a little. Even though he “opened up” to her later saying he wants to fall in love with her, I kind of think he just said that because he does care for her and knows it’s what she needs to hear right now. But we have to note that he didn’t say he was falling in love with her (at least he didn’t say it right away), he said he “wants” to fall in love with her. I think he will get there, but he took a step back this week in my mind.
The 2-on-1 date was interesting to me this episode. Normally I say that the 2-on-1 date is usually between two people that the Bachelor/ette isn’t really into – but not in this case. This time, since it’s so late in the season, she had to choose one guy she was really into and one she knew she’d send home. Why? Because at this point in the process it would be a potential waste of a rose. And the roses mean A LOT more now. I think she knew she’d give Chase the rose well before the date started.
What did you guys think of Alex and James getting 2 roses at the end? I was kind of bummed honestly. I thought we were going to see 4 guys go home in one episode! Which would have been great. I’m not trying to be mean by wanting guys to leave. I just want to get to the real romance stuff. We’ve had plenty of drama this season and now I’m ready for the real love story part! And honestly, it was just a waste of 2 roses. There is no way that Alex and James will outlast Luke, Jordan, Robbie, or Chase so they will for sure be gone next episode.
Do you like that Jojo gave out those last two roses? Whose side are you on, Jordan’s or James Taylor’s? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
But before I go, here are some fashion details for all of you dying to get your hands on Jojo’s closet!
Jojo’s red dress and white jacket combo was KILLER! This is the jacket she’s wearing – it’s by Topshop and the red dress is by A.L.C. Both seem to be sold out everywhere. Wah! But her fab shoes are in stock HERE! And from the review every says they are super comfortable! I’m getting a pair!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jojo’s gray jeans in the picture below. I already bought a pair for myself. They will go with everything. She wore hers with a cute sweater she bought at a boutique in Houston (according to her stylist Cary Fetman) and these gray boots. I feel like we’ve seen her wear these gray boots a few times this season. They’re great!
