Ok…now onto the Bachelor! And at the end I’ll discuss my thoughts on our new Bachelorette! So don’t keep reading if you haven’t heard the news yet!!!
It’s no secret that I adore Vanessa. She is a girl’s girl and a guy’s girl all in one! She’s an everyone’s girl! Ha! I love how confident she is in their relationship. And she keeps saying she knows that Nick feels the same way about her. I just know that there must be little conversations happening between them when the cameras aren’t rolling. I think he is giving her some reassurance behind the scenes. That said, I was kind of shocked with how he handled her telling him she was falling in love with him. I figured he would be more positive in return. But even Corinne said it herself, Vanessa clearly has the strongest relationship with Nick. I think Nick is just trying to be EXTRA careful with what he says because of what has happened to him in the past. BTW – her dress on her date with Nick was by House of CB. And many of you asked me about her sports bra from last weeks episode. It’s by Nike and you can get it on sale HERE.
During the group date, Raven had me dying laughing when she was talking about punching a shark in the face. And when she said she’d get the rose if the other two girls got eaten! Ha! Something about her and her accent makes everything she says sound so sweet. I just love her!
Corinne is too focused on winning. She has this fear of “falling behind” and that’s just not what this experience is about. It’s about finding a person to marry! That’s A HUGE deal! If you don’t get Nick’s final rose that doesn’t mean you didn’t “win”. It’s a total win for all the girls that don’t end up with him because he’s not MEANT for them! Often people will say that my relationship from my season of the show was a failure because we didn’t stay together. I think the opposite! Isn’t any wrong relationship you get out of ultimately a life success? Because it puts you one step closer to the person you are supposed to be with! Now I am happier than ever with the love of my life and have the most amazing little daughter! If ending a relationship that was unhappy is a failure, then I don’t want to be a Bachelor “success.” Anyway, my point is that not ending up with Nick shouldn’t feel like losing. Because it’s not. Those ladies are just one step closer to finding the right one for them!
I was bummed to see Danielle go, but I think it was pretty obvious that she and Nick didn’t have great chemistry. Kristina too! I loved when Nick said to Kristina “you deserve someone who isn’t going to sit in front of you and say there are stronger relationships.”. He is SO right! And that is so awesome of him to recognize that and TELL HER that! She needed to hear that. It broke my heart to see her sad. I truly hope she finds love.
It’s hard to see any girl go at this point. I really like everyone left this season, and YES, I am including Corinne in that group. I honestly think Corinne got caught up in the gossip with the Bachelor producers behind the scenes and said things that she thought were funny that weren’t. I don’t condone ALL of her behavior, but seeing how she is with the other girls, I actually think they all really get along. So it just makes me look differently at Corinne. She also seems to be close with Rachel and I adore Rachel. She must have a decent judge of character. Speaking of Rachel, have you heard the news?!?! STOP READING NOW IF YOU HAVEN’T HEARD BECAUSE THIS WILL BE A SPOILER. Adding a photo here to break up the text so I don’t spoil for anyone. But the news is EVERYWHERE so I imagine most people have seen it.
She’s the NEXT BACHELORETTE!!!! I am so thrilled for her! Us Bachelorettes are all close and I am so happy to welcome Rachel to the group! She’s cute, smart, sweet and sassy! I cannot wait to see her find love! Such a perfect choice as the new Bachelorette. And yes, I am very happy to see a little diversity join our family!!! Rachel said it best, her journey to find love will be no different just because the color of her skin is. I think this is such an exciting time for the franchise and I will be watching her on her quest to find the one!
What did you think about Nick sending Danielle and Kristina home? Any thoughts on Corinne? Do you agree with what I have to say about her and her seeming to get along with all the girls? Who do you think Nick is going to end up with?
