Episode Review: Bachelorette, Season Andi, Episode 8

We are getting close to the end people! Look back through my eyes at Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 (also the filler episode if you are that bored).

For those of you who are looking for answers not given in the episode look elsewhere. All I can offer you is the best darn color commentary anywhere on the internets (valid opinion of my friend Catsy that definitely counts as a reliable source).

It’s hometowns! This is the time where we can see if we, I mean she, would fit well with the final four contestants’ families.

Nick’s Hometown: On their tour around Milwaukee they hit up a brewery where there is a beer on tap called the “Nick and Andi” and then they polka (which I am much better at than they are) and that’s the story of how I warmed back up to Nick.

His family is large, ten siblings. She and Nick get to sit on one couch and the entire brood plus significant others minus one brother sit/stand across and fire questions.

I’m so hot and cold with this man. Sometimes I really hate him. Other times I think he is just adorkable. And that’s probably due to skilled and experienced editors. Continue reading

Episode Review: Bachelorette, Season Andi, Episode 7

Take a quick stroll from first impression until hometown rose through my eyes. Episode 1, Episode 2, Episode 3, Episode 4, Look Back Episode, Episode 5, and Episode 6.

Tonight we got to Belgium which was brilliantly (and disastrously) chosen after they slayed out national team today. Good job whoever is in charge of picking locations and planning episode air dates.

Marcus 1-on-1: Remember that Marcus told her he wanted to leave at one point? It isn’t because he doesn’t like her. It’s because he is scared of the power of his own emotions. (Gag) This is the date I would like to go on. If their first 1-on-1 was my least favorite situation walking around eating good not scary/bug based/eye retaining food and getting to sit frequently is my favorite.

It doesn’t look like they touch their wine that much. Marcus is often seen holding his water-glass. They really took their discussion seriously. At the end he throws out the word “soul mate” in an aside.

Nick decides that he isn’t hated enough by the guys he has to live with and goes to find Andi. He goes into the hotel Andi is staying at, tells a terrible lie that he lost his room key, forget the room number, but it is under his wife’s name and could they help him out. And they gave him the key. I’m quite sure that part had to be staged because this is not the first time a contestant has snuck out and tracked down their target. But let’s remember friend, the last two times this has happened the contestant has ended up going home at the very end heartbroken and bitter (Arie and the hairstylist lady). It does not work for some reason. Continue reading
