This blog is titled “What the Beeeeeep?” Because I really can’t keep my feelings about Krystal to myself anymore. Some of the things she said just left me speechless. And trust me I know a lot can be bad editing on this show (I always try to give people on the show the benefit of the doubt), but I also know that there is a reason all the other girls are getting a bad vibe from her. I’ll get to Krystal in a minute, but first let’s talk about the other girls/dates.
I really like Seinne. She just has a cool laid-back vibe. And she’s obviously smart. We all know she went to Yale and even Arie can’t stop talking about how smart she is. But I think she’s even more than just “educated”. I say that because it seems like that’s been the main focus on her so far this season. And I think she and Arie have pretty cool vibes together. But something just seems missing to me. Maybe it’s passion? It’s almost like they’re really good friends rather than potential husband and wife.
This date was a bit intense. I’m not even sure of the name of the girl who almost drank her own urine but I find it horrifying that someone even got that close. What if she just quickly took a swig and Arie hadn’t stopped her? I would be so embarrassed and upset if I were her if that happened. Obviously it didn’t happen, but man that was a close call
Anyway, was it just me or did it seem a little inappropriate when Arie put his arm around Krystal in the hot tub in front of all the other girls? I feel like we kept seeing the same clip over and over to make it seem like his arm was all around her longer than it actually was. But I still just thought that was inappropriate. I remember when I was the Bachelorette I made such a point to not have that sort of physical contact with a guy when I was hanging out with a group of guys. Just out of respect. Don’t get me wrong, contestants always happened to peek in on situations they shouldn’t. The producers make sure the contestants get a good sneak peek at a good make out sesh. But he was sitting right in front of all the other girls which I just don’t understand.
Kendall and Arie are soooo a-dork-able together! Right?!?! If he doesn’t pick her, can I give her a rose and ask her to be my BFF for life? I’m kind of obsessed with her. But really, at the beginning of the season I didn’t see her going very far. Now that I see how similar she and Arie are, I really think they could have something great.
And now we have to talk about Krystal. Ugh. Last week I said I was doing my best not to say negative things about her because I really believe in treating people the way you want to be treated. But she’s really digging herself a hole here. She keeps talking about how all the girls are juvenile and how she feels like she’s at sleep away camp, but really she’s the only one who I see acting in a juvenile way.
And I have to say the thing that made me the most mad is that when she talks to Arie she seemed so sincere and genuine. She said that she’s the type of person that comes from a place of love with everything she does so it hurt her to be misunderstood and judged. Yet every interview we see, she’s talking badly about the other girls and it’s coming from a place of jealousy and hate, not love. I mean really, what the F@$&!? The things I want to say about Krystal‘s behavior last night is why the shirt I’m wearing is just too perfect for today’s blog post. Because pardon my French, but I really can’t keep it to myself anymore. And I’ll end my little rant by saying that I KNOW people can get a bad edit on this show. Knowing that, I try so hard not to be quick to judge. But what Krystal is saying to Arie and what she is saying in her interviews just seem like two completely different people to me. I’m sure she’ll watch the show back and wish she handle things a bit differently.
I honestly don’t think I could love Bekah more! I was a little unsure of her at the beginning of the season because she seemed a little bit like she was too prepared with some of her questions and answers and it almost seemed like acting to me. And I’m pretty certain that she’s a nanny in LA while she pursues an acting career. That’s just my guess since she’s working as a nanny in LA and absolutely stunning. I could be totally wrong though. However, the past few weeks she’s really been growing on m, and on last night’s episode I just thought she was awesome. But here’s the thing. A 14 year age difference at 22 and 36 is just way too much! Is it possible that it could all work out? Of course it is. Is it likely? Absolutely not. But I do think she’s mature for 22. She certainly has an advanced vocabulary and is very well spoken. And I like the way she thinks about and looks at life. But even a mature 22 is still young. I think I was a mature 25 when I was the Bachelorette and looking back, I was barely ready to get married. I think I could have if I had found the right one then, but I had just gotten to a point in my life where I was ready for something like that. And I don’t know, when I see them together I just feel like she looks like she could be his daughter. They just look like they have a huge age difference. Something about it makes me feel uncomfortable. If he doesn’t end up with her, I would love to see her as the Bachelorette. But in a few years! I would love if they brought her back a few years from now just like they brought Arie back this time around. I think Bekah would make an incredible Bachelorette!
And let’s talk about Arie’s reaction to finding out her age. It’s pretty obvious that he was visibly worked up about it. I feel like it was the first time we saw actual, real, raw emotion coming out of him the season. His initial reaction was shot and then in his interview with the producer we saw him really stressing about it because I think beyond his initial reaction he knew the age difference was just too much. But I absolutely loved their conversation about it. It was one of the most organic moments ever seen on the show. They have an incredible connection there’s no doubt about that.
On so many seasons they have a rose ceremony where the cocktail party is abruptly canceled. Let me let you guys in a little something. I would’ve canceled every cocktail party on my season if I could have (except the first two). Every week I knew who I was sending home going into the rose ceremony. Those few extra moments with people at the end of the week isn’t going to change the way you feel about your connection with them. Unless something huge happens. But for the most part, you know who you’re sending home well before the cocktail party.
Last random thought. I dig Chealsea now. Episode one she came off kind of bad (could have been editing) and now she seems so cool to me. Thoughts? In fact, let’s discuss EVERYTHING! What are you thoughts on Krystal? Do you think she is making bad choices in what she says? Or do you think it’s a bad edit? What about Arie and Bekah? Anyone else love their real and raw date last night? Could they really make it as a couple? Would you watch her as the Bachelorette? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
