I didn’t get a chance to watch After the Final Rose. So know that all of my thoughts here are just on the episode and not on the live show. But regardless, I’m going to make this pretty short and sweet. Or at least try to.
I want to start off by congratulating Becca and Garrett. I truly hope that their relationship is everything they have both ever wanted and more. I’ve been pretty hesitant about Garrett all season because of some of the things I’ve read about him online. Basically he liked some very offensive social media posts that mocked women, immigrants and even school shootings. So to be honest with you guys, I’ve had a bit of a hard time looking past that while watching him on the show. I do however believe that everybody is capable of learning from their mistakes and growing as a human being. So with all that said, I truly hope Garrett has grown as a human being and doesn’t believe the things about women, immigrants and school shootings that he supported by liking online. I will do my best to be supportive of their relationship and I hope you guys can find it in your hearts to do that as well. And here’s the thing, I truly believe that Becca is such a solid woman with a great head on her shoulders. So if deep down inside of Garrett he still feels these things, I think that she will see that in him. And if she does see that in him, I think the relationship will ultimately fail. Hopefully these were just big mistakes in his past and ignorant thinking that he has grown out of. And if he has, I truly hope that he and Becca have a long, beautiful and loving relationship!
Now can we talk about my favorite contestant ever, Blake?! OK maybe I’m pushing it by saying my favorite ever, but I just adore him! So let me just start this by saying Blake for Bachelor, Blake for Bachelor, Blake for Bachelor! Watching him get his heart broken last night absolutely broke my heart! But I think we all saw that coming right? It just seemed pretty obvious that Becca wasn’t feeling the same way about him as she might’ve at the beginning. And here’s the thing, I know that when I was the Bachelorette, throughout filming I gave little hints to the guy I picked in the end letting him know that I was most likely going to choose him. I don’t remember exactly what I would say, but I just remember dropping hints to reassure him that he wasn’t going anywhere. So if I had to guess, Becca probably did a lot of the same things making him feel super confident that it was going to be him in the end. So even though she didn’t say ”I love you” to him, I’m sure he was under the impression for a while that it would be him in the end. That’s probably why towards the end of the season he started freaking out when she was pulling back. I’m totally just assuming all of this. I obviously don’t know for sure. But it seems like a good possibility based on my experience on the show.
What are you guys think about Blake being the next Bachelor? Would you like to see him in that role? I’ve heard a lot of people saying they want Peter from Rachel’s season to be the Bachelor. I think Peter would be a great choice as well. But to be completely honest with you, I think the fame that comes along after the show is over makes it hard for someone from a past season to be the Bachelor or Bachelorette with pure intentions. Like I feel like when I chose to be the Bachelorette I was still naive to the fame and popularity that the show brought. And that’s because I wasn’t even allowed to use social media or really do much of any press until The Bachelor was over. And the Bachelorette films basically a week after the Bachelor is done airing, so I went right into filming and didn’t get to see much of the aftermath. I feel like past contestants (meaning from seasons before the one the just aired) get to see a lot of the aftermath of the show (the money and 15 mins of fame it brings) so they couldn’t possibly make a decision to be the Bachelor or Bachelorette without ulterior motive’s – if that makes sense. Whereas Blake is just an innocent boy that hasn’t fully got to experience the craziness that the show brings, and I think he would go into it with a completely open heart and the intentions of finding love. Hopefully you guys get what I’m trying to say. So I guess it’s safe to say that my pick for the next Bachelor is 100% Blake! Tell me who you want to be the Bachelor in the comments below!
Who else is sooooo excited for Bachelor in Paradise tomorrow?!?! I don’t think I will be blogging the first episode, but I will be doing some insta stories!
And here are my favorite looks from this week. Including an up-cycled dress that’s so good for the environment and a $17 black tee!
