First, forgive me me if this blog isn’t super detailed or if I missed things that you guys found important on the show. I did my best to watch and tweet along with all of you, but it’s definitely hard with a newborn. At one point I was watching the show, tweeting, breastfeeding, and trying to eat all at the same time! Ha! Multitasking is definitely something I need to get used to as a new mom. Anyway, here is what I thought of last night’s show.
I was really happy to see Alex go home. There was absolutely no chemistry between them at all. You can tell this was a pity date. She was so disinterested the entire time. I really feel like he only got a date because she would have felt bad not giving him one. Especially after keeping him with the “extra rose” last week. Don’t you guys agree? They are so awkward together! She wouldn’t even fake “Pringles kiss” him! You know it’s bad when someone won’t fake kiss you with potato chips. The date was really boring and super awkward at best. No wonder the horse fell asleep! I mean I know I’m sleep deprived with a newborn and all but that date was a snooze fest! And the 3-way with the horse? I think it would have been SO cool in any other circumstance but with Alex it just felt weird.
So jealous of her grape-stomping-date with Jordan. I asked for this exact date on my season of the Bachelorette and never got to do it. It’s definitely an item on my bucket list. I know many of you aren’t fans on Jordan, and I definitely found myself feeling skeptical of him a few times, but we all have to remember that this is a TV show and drama is going to exist. And the guys are going to be weird about Jordan because it’s so obvious that Jojo is super into him. Jordan really won me over last night. It felt real and heartfelt when he told Jojo that he loved her. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been clear every season that I think people say “I love you” way too early on this show. And I don’t even really think people fall in love on this show (I think they fall in love after the show wraps and obviously there are exceptions). But I think that Jordan believes he’s in love right now and he is genuinely expressing that to Jojo.
I really liked the setting of the Group date. It was so cool that Jojo got to hangout with the guys in their hotel suite and just hang. But it was SO weird when they all hung out in bed together and were watching the Brazilian Bachelor. It felt like Sister Wives but it was Brother Husbands instead, Ha.
The whole “front-runner” conversation between the guys was kind of dumb in my opinion. EVERY guy should feel like the front runner, otherwise, why would you stick around? It’s good that Robbie thinks he is and doesn’t like it when the other guys call Jordan the front-runner. He should feel that way. Why would you want to fight for a girl who is more into other guys than you? I dunno. That’s just my opinion. I do Jojo is super into Robbie and will be around in the very end. I honestly think that he might end up with Jojo. So what guy do I think should feel like he’s the front-runner right now? ALL OF THEM! If they don’t and are still there, they’re there for the wrong reasons in my opinion. But we can still choose our front-runners of course 😉
Speaking of front-runners, I don’t think Jojo and Luke will end up together, but Luke definitely won me over as the front-runner for the next Bachelor. I loved seeing him in his element on their date. He seemed so “at home” and natural. I feel like he’s been a bit closed off this season, but we totally saw a more relaxed side of him last night. Would you want to see Luke as the next Bachelor? If not, who is your choice? Tell me in the comments section! Maybe James Taylor is your choice. By the way, I loved JT’s convo with Jojo when she sent him home. It felt very real. I have no doubt that he will find a great girl whether it’s as the Bachelor or in normal everyday life.
Now it’s time for Jojo’s fashion! Everyone was raving about these pants. I found them on two different sites and they are on MAJOR sale. You can get them HERE and HERE. Her top is by McGuire Denim and you can get the exact shirt in light blue HERE or the same style of shirt by McGuire Denim but without the buttons HERE.
Jojo’s outfit on her date with Luke was totally my style. At first I was sure her flannel with a Rails flannel. I’m obsessed with Rails. Their flannel have such a flattering fit and are so comfy. But her shirt is actually by R13. The exact color is out of stock but you can get the same shirt in a different color HERE.
That’s all from me! I’m excited for next week episode! Kaitlyn, Desiree and I will actually be back on the show to follow up with Jojo on her remaining guys!
Until next week…
