Episode Review: Bachelor in Paradise, Week 4 Part 2

Look back on our journey thus far and see why something has to happen this episode for the Bachelor franchise not to become a complete tease. Episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, episode 4 part 1

We ended last night with Marcus and Lacy and Clare and Zack firmly committed to each other. AshLee calls Graham who walks off and is followed by Michelle. What will happen? Hopefully something with the ambulance they keep showing.

We saw AshLee let her crazy get out of control and basically called Clare a w**** to Zack’s face. And you don’t mess with Clare because she will calmly and firmly shut you down, take away your soapbox, and stand smugly looking on as your man debates whether he would rather be eliminated than have to deal with you anymore…apparently. But AshLee isn’t the only one who should look bad in this situation. Michelle, already on my dislike list because of her self-pity and defeatist mentality, decided that Graham had to know about the situation.

We return to see Graham getting dizzy with the emotional stress. Continue reading

Episode Review: Bachelor in Paradise, Week 4 Part 1

Wanna know everything about the previous episodes before tackling this two night special? Read my recaps of episode 1, episode 2, and episode 3 now.

They are promising unexpected romance and crazy drama. Here is what we are working with.

  • Lacy and Marcus are still an item.
  • AshLee and Graham are due for some trauma. (Originally I meant to type drama but this seems more appropriate.)
  • Zack is still with Clare.
  • Marquel moved on to Jackie.
  • Robert and Sarah are still pretending to be each others first choice.
  • And Michelle is solo.

(Update on Chris and Elise. Continue reading

Episode Review: Bachelor in Paradise, Week 3

Got a few minutes and want to catch up on the first two episodes of the season? Look at my recaps for episode 1 and episode 2.

What true love parings do we get to see ripped apart from last episode?

  • Lacy chose Marcus.
  • AshLee kept her claws in Graham which is flattering, humbling, and awesome if maybe a little intense to him.
  • Clare got some action from Zack.
  • Michelle stayed with Marquel.
  • Chris agreed to be Elise’s second choice. And now he gets to stick around to rack up his Bachelor universe number for at least one more episode because it’s guys choice this week.
  • Sarah snatched up Robert.

New Arrivals

  • Danielle, Juan Paublo’s Season (I always thought she had a naturally sweet face. Like, if she wasn’t wearing makeup I think we would easily recognize her and think she was just as adorable.)
  • Jackie, Sean’s Season (I was a big fan of her as a person on Sean’s season.)

Date 1 Continue reading

Episode Review: Bachelor in Paradise, Week 2

Let’s recap the couples from the end of the last episode.


  • Marquel and Michelle are a mutual match.
  • Dylan and Elise are also a mutual match.
  • Graham and AshLee are technically a mutual match but Graham didn’t have much of a choice as AshLee is doing a fine job of manipulating him.
  • Marcus chose Lacy but she had a thing with Robert as well so…
  • Robert saved Clare who is probably just a friend.
  • Ben chose Sarah and both were “meh okay” about it.

New Arrivals

  • Chris, Emily’s Season and Bachelor filming stalker
  • Zack, Desiree’s Season (who is way hotter than I remember him being)

We open on this episode with Michelle K.’s drama. Continue reading

There are more men this episode than women because this is the Bachelor franchise and all we want at the end of the day is true love.

How this show works: They get to pick who they go on dates with, kind of. At the end of the week each guy will pick a girl and the odd girl out goes home. Next week a new girl will be brought in and the girls will each pick a guy and the odd guy out will go home. Repeat until they either decide to start voting couples out or they end with the remaining couples as winners by default.

Basically each week most every contestant will find out that they are not their favorite’s favorite. There will be lies and manipulation and tears. And there is no shortage of alcohol. Continue reading

Episode Review: Bachelorette, Season Andi, After the Final Rose

If you missed the entire season then cheat and check my review of episodes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, pointless recap, and men tell all.

We start off the episode, where we are supposed to see Andi and Josh happy, with Nick’s sob story. He stalked her when she went on vacation. (Don’t tell me the word is followed. I mean stalk because that is stalker material.) The he tries to sit down with her at Men Tell All and is denied both times. She feels she isn’t ready to sit down face-to-face with him yet but he manages to hand over a letter. And wow, I just remembered that there was a letter in the spoiler at the end of episode 9 and there was a lot of drama made about it.

This season was the season of the disappointing build up. Although there might be more drama in the first few minutes of this episode than the entirety of Men Tell All.

Nick comes out to chat. It actually seems hard for him. When he is asked if he thinks Andi made a mistake he honestly says he doesn’t think he is in the position to answer that. He admits that Josh is a great guy and that he knows Josh will appreciate and cherish the woman that Andi is. But he can’t help but wonder. Andi is about to come out… Continue reading
