Episode Review: Bachelor in Paradise, Week 6

Don’t skip to the last chapter in this book! Catch up on episodes 1, 2, 3, 4.1, 4.2, and 5. We start with 6 couples (In order of most real seeming and least real seeming)

  • Marcus and Lacy whom I will be referring to as Macy
  • Sarah and Robert
  • Michelle and Cody
  • Zack and Jackie
  • AshLee and Graham
  • Christy and Tasos

The couples are threatened with a test. They have to have a chat about the real world. Can they survive after the show as a couple? If not then they will have to break up and leave. They split up by gender and start discussing things and Michelle decides that Graham needs to dump AshLee. Michelle runs off to tell him as much and AshLee thinks she is going to talk to him about Cody because her best friend couldn’t possibly have any issues with the perfect couple in the house. Delusional, crazy chick. Continue reading


Episode Review: Bachelorette, Season Andi, Episode 10

Wanna see how Andi narrowed her reverse harem down? Take a quick jaunt through episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 as well as the useless recap and Men Tell All.

Nick meets the parents: He brings not just flowers for Andi’s mother but also what seems to be rum for her father. Her mother noticed that Nick didn’t really show any feelings through physical touch. He also wore a v-neck shirt and spent a lot of time showing just how much of a nervous wreck he is.

Luckily for him he stumbled over himself so much that there is no doubt in her mother’s mind that he is telling the truth about how much he likes Andi.

Andi talks about the passion of their physical relationship and I’m just sitting here thinking that not all chemistry jumps off the screen. Continue reading

Episode Review: I Wanna Marry “Harry”, Episode 8

Fairytale Ends

Reviews for episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7.

We find out that Sir and the chosen girl will get $125,000 dollars if she forgives him and agrees to try to date after the reveal. Apparently, Sir does not know about this prize. Why in the world would FOX even feel the need to chance the waste of money then? If she doesn’t accept him “they leave with nothing,” …except the money I am sure they get paid for each episode they stay on for. Maybe they just wanted to have the best dating show success rate and money was the best solution.

Kelley thinks she is the only one there for the right reasons. Let’s be honest people, the real reason they are all there is to be on TV and date. This isn’t a contest of who is the nicest or who has never been in love before. And if it was a niceness competition, Kelley looses to Kim and Karina. She went from girl-next-door to catty queen quickly.

Kelley’s Date: I want whatever she is wearing in her aside interviews. It looks super adorable. She obviously loves the idea of him. I feel like Kelley knows the least about Matt out of the final three. She decides to tattle on Kim and Karina. (They were joking about him hooking them up with his rich friends as consolation prizes if he breaks their hearts. It was a joke Kelley.) And then she goes and tries to tell him about Karina’s picture of her ex which is none of her business. And Sir tells her as much. Super thumbs down for being so classless. A true Southern belle would have handled herself much better.

Karina’s Date: They talk about her ex. I’m not sure she is over him but then again I don’t think she is the best choice for Sir anyway. She could make someone a nice trophy wife.

Kimberly’s Date: I think she is Sir’s best option. Unfortunately, she is also the one with the most trust issues.

Kelley keeps saying she would do anything to be with him. I think she means Prince Harry. Would she do anything to be with Matt Hicks? No. No way in hell. And the fact that she is so intense after less than 2 months makes me think her feelings aren’t going to hold up.

Sir is not planning to marry the girl right after or even propose. He just wants the chance to pursue the girl (date) after the show. Karina and Kim seem to get that. And he sends Kelley home proving he is still a decent judge of situations. Her ugly side has come out the past few episodes. Kelley, cursing on national television is not lady-like.

In what I’m assuming is the “Who wore it best?” portion of this show (both women wear the same dress in slightly different shades of neutral) I think Karina wins. But since we already had the pageant I doubt that matters.

There is a winter wonderland set up for them. Which will be super easy for the girls to walk in in heals.

Kim says she is glad she got to learn a lot about him and Sir replies that there is a lot left to learn. Hardy-har-har Matt. We get to see the look back on each girl’s journey with Sir and it looks like Karina puts in effort. I’m not saying that as a bad thing. I just worry that she will not feel compelled to put in the same effort for a normal guy. And she is probably out of his league in real life so it makes sense that she would put in the effort for a prince but not a guy who cleans up oil spills.

Matt seems like a nice guy but he really needs to stop building the girls up before sending them home. It might feel like the nice thing to do, make them feel like it isn’t their fault, but what he is really doing is letting them get their hopes raised before smashing them causing them to fall even farther emotionally.

He does send Karina home though. Hopefully because he knows that she wants more than he can offer her out of life and a partner. He makes a tasteless choice in my mind and kisses her before and after the news.

Sir tells Kim she is the girl he has chosen before he tells her he is not Harry. I think he should have told her first. I’m not Harry. Let that sink in. If it is still cool then tell her about your feelings. This is another situation where he builds the girl up potentially setting her up for an even bigger emotional fall. If he is going to be selfish and lie to the girl then he doesn’t deserve to tell her his feelings and get her reaction until he has told her the truth. That is the prize if she says it is okay in my mind. But, oh well. Bigger drama.

Luckily for Matt, Kim is a dreamer and a romantic. It doesn’t change anything for her. If anything, it probably is a big relief. She doesn’t have to worry about a disapproving family, changing how she behaves, if her family and past will come under censure, nothing. I think it was a good choice on his part and I wish the happy couple luck and as smooth a break-up as possible. Let’s just hope they split the money ahead of time.

Too bad there isn’t an entire episode of reaction videos and group chat with the other girls finding out. I will scour the internets for a little bit to see what I can dig up and will report anything fun. (As of now I can’t find any news on the other girls or on whether Matt and Kim are still together. I guess the show was just that unsuccessful at making people care.)
