I don’t know about you guys but watching last night episode of The Bachelor seriously made me uncomfortable. For so many reasons. It was all about Corinne vs. Taylor. Am I picking sides? No. Definitely not. But I do have some thoughts. Here they are…
At first, I honestly felt like Taylor was tying to help Corinne. Am I the only one that felt that way? I felt like she was trying to help Corinne understand how the other girls were perceiving her. And really, Corinne was being pretty mean to her. That’s just the way I saw it. At the beginning of the show, I kept feeling bad for Taylor. But then again, Josephine said she found Taylor’s energy “toxic,” so she can’t be all that innocent right? But even though I think Taylor was trying to help her at first, soon after she got way too caught up in the drama. And I think that is because Corinne knew EXACTLY how to get under her skin. Corinne pushed every one of Taylor’s buttons and she ended up being condescending in retaliation. That’s why I get that some people feel Taylor was talking down to Corinne in general. I think she was just trying to keep her cool and she did a pretty good job…at first. But why did she come back at the end of the episode? I’ll get to that in a minute…
Before I move on, I want to say that I’m not trying to hate on Corinne. That’s not what I’m about. I’m an adult and a mother and it’s not in me to pick on a 24 year old woman. But I feel that need to speak up on my blog when I feel Corinne is acting out. I guess kind of like what Taylor was trying to do at first. I don’t want to put Corinne down, but at the same time I don’t want any of the young women reading my blog to think that behavior is appropriate.
Let’s talk about Rachel! Rachel is such a cool girl. She’s totally beautiful, but I think her personality takes her from very pretty to STUNNING! I would love to see her as the Bachelorette! That is if she doesn’t end up with Nick. Cause she totally could! Rachel and Nick seem to have a great connection and she got the first impression rose. I’m surprised he waited this long to take her on a one-on-one. I think it’s because he knew he liked her right away so he wanted to focus his attention on some of the other girls early on that he wasn’t as sure about. And sorry for my crappy pictures below. But it’s all I have to work with. Ha!

The haunted house was pretty cool. It must have been terrifying to experience! But let’s be real, it’s basically an amusement park. Right? Ok, I’m not going to lie, as I type this I secretly fear that little Mae is going to come to my house tonight and freak me out. Ha! But even though I think all those things moving in the house were staged, it was pretty crazy and freaky! And I totally believe in ghosts FYI.
And Raven came in with the L bomb! In my opinion, Raven saying “that was the moment I fell in love with you” was the most genuine way anyone has ever said those words for the first time on this show. It’s usually always SO forced and awkward. But I like that it just kind of slipped out. I think she meant to say that was the moment she “fell” for Nick, not fell in love. I don’t know what you guys think, but falling for someone is very different than falling in love with someone. I was a bit surprised that Nick didn’t give her the group date rose though. I mean, she DID say the L word. Hopefully he gives her the reassurance she needs or lets her go – depending on how he feels about her.
Ok, back to Taylor. Why on earth did she come back at the end of the episode? I really wonder how Nick is going react to her showing up after he sent her home. I don’t know what she is going to say but at this point she should have just walked away and left the situation alone. Nick doesn’t want to be with her and she shouldn’t care if he wants to be with Corinne. She DEFINITELY got way too caught up in the drama to feel the need to come back. I am so curious to see what happens next week.
What do you guys think? Do you think Taylor was trying to be helpful at first? What do you think about her coming back to talk to Nick? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
BTW, I talked to Vanessa and her super cute grey halter dress is $10 by a company called Sirens! I didn’t think I could love this girl anymore and then she tells me she’s a bargain shopper!!! Now I’m OBSESSED with her! You know I’m all about affordable fashion here on Ali Luvs. I couldn’t find her exact dress but found a SUPER similar one for $6 HERE! Gotta love the price 🙂
Oh and before I go I have to say that I was SO bummed to see Sara go home. She such a cutie! I thought she would have stayed so much longer!
