We are only 2 episodes into The Bachelor and already there is so much drama! And sexuality. Man, I was a bit shocked by how some of the girls were behaving (Although I probably shouldn’t have been). Let’s break it all down….
First, the Bridal photos were actually pretty funny. Although I would have HATED that date because I’ve always been weird about people asking me to try on wedding dresses. It’s only happened a couple times before I got engaged to Kevin (for random photo shoots), but I was always adamant that the first time I try on a wedding dress be when I was actually shopping for one! Anyway, that’s just me and might seem dumb. My point is that I wouldn’t have wanted to put on a dress if I was on this date and would have gotten the boot I’m sure.
Don’t you agree that Alexis couldn’t have been a more perfect bride for the shotgun wedding photos? She owned it and totally made me laugh.
And DAMN Brittany looked incredible in that little leaf bikini bottom. Cheers to her for having the balls to wear it (that immediately put a weird visual in my head. Ha!). But then again, her body is amazing so it’s no wonder she has the confidence to do it. What I found interesting was that the women cheered her along instead of being jealous of her shoot with Nick. I think that says a lot about Brittany and her character. The women really seem to like her.
Corrine on the other hand doesn’t get the same warm reaction from the women. And it’s pretty obvious why. Quite frankly, I don’t think Nick enjoyed her being all over him at the pool either. Look, don’t get me wrong, I think he is very attracted to her and would have enjoyed it in a more private area. But he knew that what she was doing was going to make the other women upset and if I know Nick at all, I know he wouldn’t want that.
And of course she won the photo shoot challenge! Having her win causes the most amount of drama. Also, I can’t help but think Nick giving her the group date rose was producer encouraged. He has done this whole group date thing enough times that he has to know giving Corrine the rose after she stole him away multiple times, wining the group date challenge, and having him put his hands on her boobs was going to make the these girls very upset. He’s not a dummy. He also has to know that Corrine is making enemies. Who knows exactly why he gave her the group date rose, but all I know is that HE knew it would cause friction before giving it.
And this is totally random, but I just adore Raven. I could listen to her talk all day long. She is so cute, sweet, and nice.
In my first Bachelor blog last week (where I show you how to throw a fun Bachelor viewing party!), I said the Danielle M was going to be a girl to watch. And I am pumped to see that she got the first date! But after watching them interact and getting to know her a little bit more, I don’t think she is a match for Nick. I mean she’s lovely and so so sweet, but almost too sweet for Nick. And I really didn’t feel any chemistry between them. But man is she adorable. And I loved the black halter jumpsuit she wore on their date. I found a super similar one HERE that has great reviews. Sorry the pic below is the WORST! I took it as a screenshot off my computer.
And then there’s Liz… Nick made the absolute right choice sending Liz home. I’m sure 99% of you agree that if she really liked him she would have pursued him before he became the Bachelor. It’s a shame too because I actually think she’s totally his type looks and personality wise. Oh well. Hopefully a better girl for him is still around.
Overall, I am pretty disappointed with how some of the girls are handling themselves. Brittany asked Nick whose boobs were better – hers or Corrine. Corrine got naked on her first date. And Lacey said “what if I had taken my shirt off, would I have gotten the rose?” I know she was trying to make a point suggesting that’s what Nick wants (and I think Lacey is very sweet). But in general there is just too much focus on sexuality this season already. Even the boob birthday thing at the end. It was funny and I can appreciate humor, but again, it seems like too much for it only being the 2nd episode. As a mom, I sat there and watched the showing thinking, I never want my daughter to think she has to behave this way to find a good man. I’m not trying to put the girls down by calling them out on this either. It just makes me sad I guess. I hope they all know they are better than this.
Well, that’s all I have for now! At the end of this week I think Nick is most into Corrine and Raven. But lots can change between now and the final rose! You never know what’s going to happen on The Bachelor…
Until next week!
