I apologize in advance for typos. I wrote this SOOOO quick before work this morning and had to post it without proof reading. It was that, or not posting at all. So bare with me.
Before I talk about last nights episode of Bachelor in Paradise, I want to talk a little bit about my blog yesterday. There were a lot of strong opinions on my blog yesterday and I don’t blame you guys! My opinions were very strong too. I don’t condone bullying in any way. But I also realize that people are human and laughing at a funny story is very different than flat out being mean over and over and over. Or giggling when someone does something like walk over with the shrimp in their hand after the Scallop Fingers story and not being able to stop giggling. Was the giggling mean girl mentality? Maybe. But I happened to personally know both Amanda and Sarah and I can tell you this, there’s not a mean bone in their body. Do I know 100% for certain that they ended up telling Christen what they were giggling about? I absolutely don’t. But I do know the show is heavily edited and I do know them both personally and I really feel like they would’ve told her. That said, if they didn’t tell her, that wasn’t cool what they did. But I still don’t think it was mean spirited. They were giggling because something was funny.
Jasmine on the other hand was mean spirited. But that certainly does not mean that I don’t like Jasmine or think we should all gang up on Jasmine. I think Jasmine is a good person just like everyone else on the show. Like I said in my blog yesterday, hurt people, hurt people. And I think Jasmine has been hurt in the past and because of that she’s lashing out a little bit. But I have nothing but love for her and know that she’s better than what we’re seeing on the show. I just wanted to call it bullying so the young girls who read my blog and the woman who read my blog know that I don’t think it’s OK.
So moving forward, I really don’t want any of us to gang up on Jasmine or Amanda or Sara or anyone! And keep in mind all the people were talking about our women. Some of you mentioned on my blog yesterday that Wells was being a bully with his puppets. I really don’t think so since it was all obviously comedy. Gossiping is completely different then a comedy act. And any of my comedic friends would say that Wells comedy act was pretty damn good. But that said, let’s have a lot of love for all the guys on the show and all the girls on the show but at the same time let’s call them out when their behavior isn’t the best. I think it’s important to have these discussions but also important to remember that these people we are talking about are in fact people and have feelings.
Let’s chat about Dean for a little bit here. To me, it’s quite obvious what’s going on with Dean. He feels like he should be with Kristina because let’s face it, she’s absolutely awesome! He knows she’s the PC choice and he knows she’s the safe choice. However, his attraction to D-Lo is too strong for him to use his actual head right now. He’s letting his, how can I say this, “other” head to do the talking. Like I said above about the other contestants, I don’t think Dean is a bad person just like I don’t think anybody else on the show is a bad person. But he is making some really shitty decisions right now. My heart just breaks for Kristina because I’ve been in her exact shoes before. Where you love a guy and will cuddle up next to him just hoping with every inch of your heart that he’ll love you back. And savoring those moments that he’s holding you in his arms. But deep down inside you know that he doesn’t feel the same way about you and probably never will. There’s no doubt in my mind that Kristina has fallen in love with Dean and I hate that she’s going through this. I just don’t think there is any way they’re going to end up together in the end. So with that, I really hope another guy comes along to paradise for Kristina.
The only other thing I have time to talk about from last night’s episode is my favorite person on the show, Daniel! I was so upset when Alexis got sent home because I absolutely adore her and think she is so funny but the addition of Daniel definitely helped soften the blow. I absolutely loved him last season and this season he is not disappointing so far! I could watch a show entirely about Daniel.
Ok that’s all I’ve got for now because I have to go to work!
