THE BACHELORETTE: Becca Feels ‘Sick’, Demolishes Memories of Arie, Gets An Earful From Colton, Lincoln & Connor

Courtesy/ABC

On week two of Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette: a shocking revelation, a flying picture frame,  a dodgeball competition with a surprise winner, probably the most financially successful Bachelorette contestant revealed, and an arrogant, ridiculous model set the tone for this episode’s drama.  Let’s break it all down.

Becca’s trying to get all ready for her first group date, to which she invites a bevy of guys, including Jean Blanc and Lincoln.  On the date, she makes all the guys dress in tuxedos, as she tries not to “ooh and ahh”” at their bodies as they change into their formal wear.  Then, they’re taken out to an obstacle course, where they’re met by last season’s ‘Bachelorette’, Rachel, and her man, Bryan. As they go through this ridiculous obstacle course, Lincoln – who seemingly cheated – ends up winning the obstacle course, getting the fake ring out of the wedding cake, (don’t ask, long story), and as a result, gets a framed photo of him with Becca at the finish line as a keepsake.

However, Lincoln shoved his victory in all the other dudes’ faces who were on the group date, and when they were all having cocktails back at the mansion, he continually interacts with the photo, even kissing it!  Finally Connor, who has already shown signs of jealousy and anger, and not being able to contain his feelings about how this guy is throwing everything in their faces, tosses the picture frame over into the pool, and the whole thing breaks.  Then, Lincoln tattles to Becca, “I feel threatened physically.” Next, Becca has it out with Connor, who realizes he may have ruined his chance at love with her. And, guess what? She doesn’t give the ‘group date rose’ to either guy, she gives it to Jean Blanc.

Then, it’s time for Becca’s first one-on-one date since Arie Luyendyk Jr. dumped her.  She chooses Blake, (we kind of knew that was going to happen, didn’t we?), and they are taken to a warehouse where in a demolition segment, she gets rid of all her hostility, remnants, and memories of her time with Arie.  Later, in a sit down dinner with Blake, he opens up about his previous relationship. Blake reveals: his last girlfriend was about to dump him, because he saw the texts pop up from her friend on her phone. Becca then feels they have a lot in common and so does he.  They kiss … they make out … in fact, Becca was making out with a lot of guys on this episode. I think she’s the new “kissing bandit” … *wink,wink Arie.*

The next day, another group date ensues that includes last week’s ‘first impression rose’ winner, Garrett.  The men end up suiting up in pink and green team dodgeball uniforms. It turns out that none other than Leo, is the best dodgeball player, long hair put in a man-bun, and all.

Then, that evening Colton needs to confess.  Everyone in Bachelor Nation is thinking that he’s going to confess to Becca that he’s a virgin, because we saw that preview on last week’s episode.  But, the surprise is on us! Turns out that in January, just a few months ago, Colton fessed up to a relationship with Tia Booth, who actually competed for Arie on The Bachelor against Becca.  Now here’s the twist … Tia and Becca are good friends.  It has also been reported that Colton previously dated Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman.  Boy, this dude gets around!

Colton explains to Becca about his relationship with Tia: “We had a weekend together, and we had a good time, but for me the timing wasn’t right to grow what was a spark into a flame.  If my feelings were strong enough I wouldn’t have come on the show. I think that from what I know of you, we could build something awesome.”  Becca doesn’t know how to take this shocking news, and she fires back: “I’m not gonna lie.  It makes me feel a little bit sick. I mean, I’m very attracted to you, I really like where our conversation was on night one.  I feel like we have a lot in common, but it’s a very tricky situation and it puts me in a very strange position and, I mean, it’s just a lot to take in right now.”  Confused, she gives the ‘group date rose’ to Wills.

Now, in the episode’s final cocktail party/rose ceremony, male model, Jordan, is now nearly naked, and he interupts David’s time with Becca, and they have it out in the living room.  Yes, Jordan is dressed in a pink blanket. However, Becca’s mind is elsewhere, she’s thinking about the Colton situation. She admits, “I feel like I see something in you that I’m very attracted to, and there’s that interest there, but until I have more clarity, I don’t even want to really invest in this relationship.  So if you sense that I am holding back with you, I am.”

Ultimately, at the rose ceremony, Becca gives her final rose of the night to Colton, so he’s still in the running, folks.  However, Becca’s no fool. She’s got a surprise in store for Colton, when Tia appears in next week’s episode, putting him clearly in an uncomfortable spot.

Time also brought to light in an article when The Bachelorette premiered, that John Graham, one of the still-in-the-running contestants, was revealed to be quite wealthy.  In fact, Graham helped spearhead the development of the app Venmo. It looks like his net worth may make him the highest-earning Bachelorette contestant ever.  Do you think money, from the self-described “emoji consultant” who helped invent Venmo, could trump looks, on The Bachelorette?  Stay tuned.

So, what did you think of Colton’s confession?  Would you go for the money guy, John? What did you think of Lincoln’s ridiculous behavior?  Did you love the one-on-one date with Blake and Becca? Who do you think the frontrunner is now?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

BIG BROTHER Recap: Bye Bye Bayleigh

Another week, another eviction! In what was an (yet again) explosive episode, the drama reached new heights this season.

After the veto meeting, Bayleigh was upset because she had been wrongfully accused of being the hacker. She knew she was the target, but she was more upset by the blindside set by Angela who had promised her safety.  It was an awkward confrontation between her and Tyler as Bayleigh told him she had trusted him. Tyler didn’t say much, but provoked her by reminding her she’s up on the block and he was going to vote her out.

Bayleigh wasn’t the only one feeling all of the emotions.  Her close friend, and ally Haleigh who was the actual hacker, felt guilty Bayleigh was getting the blame for all of this.  She thought Bayleigh’s eviction could be because of the moves she made to target Tyler.  She was debating keeping quiet to save her game or keep her morals by opening up about the situation.  She ultimately went with telling the truth – first up was Bayleigh.  You could tell Bayleigh was upset over the news, but she understood why Haleigh took the move.

Haleigh wanted to clear Bayleigh’s name, and possibly save her from going home, so she decided to throw a house meeting to confess her “Big Brother” sins.  As she called everyone into the living room, she told them she was the hacker while calling out Tyler’s game in the process.  This sparked an argument between Tyler and Bayleigh which led to an explosive confrontation.  You can watch part of it below.

When it came time to vote, Haleigh unfortunately wasn’t able to save Bayleigh, even by cancelling Tyler’s vote. S he was evicted 6 to 1.  It was then time for another HOH competition, and everyone was determined to control the next week.  However, after eight rounds of putting together mashed-up hashtags with the correct photo, Haleigh came out with the win!

Who do you think she’ll nominate, and will the hacker hijack the nominations this week? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to tune-in on Sunday at 8/7c on CBS to find out what happens!

THE BACHELORETTE Season Finale: So Many Tears, So Many Meltdowns

There were plenty of waterworks on the season finale of The Bachelorette, that by the end of it Becca, Garrett, and Blake’s tear ducts were probably all dried out.  Meanwhile, from the look of the audience during the live three-hour season finale, they needed plenty of hankies too, which we then would assume “Bachelor Nation” faithfuls were wiping their eyes throughout the last installment of Becca’s journey,

It began when Becca took Garrett to meet her family.  And once in deep conversations with Becca’s sister, uncle, and mother, the once more light-hearted Garrett let the tears flow thinking about how he has waited to love again after his disastrous first marriage, and that Becca is his everything … tears were flowing everywhere as he shared his true emotional side.

However, when it was Blake’s turn to meet the family, he had a premonition that if he had followed he could have gotten out of the situation with some dignity.  But, Blake who professed he was so in love with Becca, got an important earful from her mother.  She asked, “How would you feel if she didn’t pick you, would you be okay?”  Next, Blake started to second-guess everything in his confessionals. “She’s gonna pick Garrett,” he muttered under his breath.

In between her final dates with the guys, and the moments with the family, Becca had her own meltdown where she knew she had to let one guy go, and that she felt like a “monster” for doing so, and even told her mother she never wanted to hurt anyone, as a tear streamed down her face.

Now as Becca is glammed up waiting for a proposal and to give out the final rose (set against the backdrop of Maldives and the Indian Ocean), it was revealed that Blake would be the first guy she would come to face-to-face with her, and we all know what that means … yup, he’s going home.

Sweating, Blake launches into his prepared proposal speech: “You’re the most sincere, honest, compassionate, goofy, funny, intelligent, truly genuinely beautiful person inside and out.  I’ve been waiting for this day and this moment for quite some time now.  Will you let me spend the rest of my life making you smile?”  Then he is crushed by what happens next.   Wait,” says Becca, who begins a muddled explanation of why she is not choosing him stating. “I think there’s a better fit for us out there.”

And so, begins Blake’s tear-filled meltdown.  He says, “How could I be so wrong?”  Then Becca tries to explain to him why she is choosing Garrett, but that only kicked a guy when he was down.  She explains for the longest time she really thought she would choose him, but that it prevented her from seeing any other potential guys and what they had to offer.  That made everything worse.  Blake walks off sobbing repeatedly into a towel, while Becca is crying and having trouble breathing. Then, in a hankie-inducing moment, Blake says to the camera: “I can’t believe I have to go through all this alone.”

Next up, Garrett proposes to Becca, she accepts, and finally gets to tell him how much she loves him. Throughout the competition, the comparison to her late father, was one of the driving forces to her decision to pick Garrett.

As revealed in a very uncomfortable moment in front of the live studio audience, Becca and Blake saw each other for the first time since his rejection on the series.  He wanted some answers from her, to which one of them stood out.  Becca noted that Blake had a penchant to get more in his head when issues come up, and it made her worry about how he would handle a serious situation; like a sick family member or child.  She added, “That’s when I just started to question the longevity of it.” (meaning their relationship).  Blake just wished her all the happiness, but never really asked her a follow-up question to that answer.

At the end when Becca and Garrett appeared for the first time as a couple on the live finale, the question of if the couple has faced any challenges and issues by host, Chris Harrison, which led to the discussion of Garrett’s social media activity that was part of a firestorm early on in the season when he showed a history of liking Instagram posts by politicians and pundits that mock Parkland high school students, liberal women, trans people and undocumented immigrants. Garrett and Becca said he know he made a mistake and is growing as person and left it at that.

So, what did you think of the season finale of The Bachelorette?  Did Becca choose the right guy? Comment below.

BIG BROTHER: The Biggest Blindside Of The Season … So Far

As we go into tonight’s episode of Big Brother, let’s catch up as where things left off on this past Thursday night, which gave viewers one explosive episode … and it was all live! With Brett and Rachel both up on the block, it was time for Level 6 to lose another member in their alliance.

As we saw in Wednesday’s episode, Rachel’s paranoia caused her alliance to question the loyalty she had for them. It seemed as if it would be an easy week for her considering Scottie, Haleigh, Faysal, and Rockstar were all voting to save her. All they needed were five votes, and they were sure that Angela, (Rachel’s BFF in the house), would vote to keep her. However, we saw her and the rest of the Level 6 members consider the idea of voting to keep Brett, the stronger competitor of the two, in the game. They just needed both JC and Sam’s vote to ensure Rachel was sent packing.

Tyler continued to play both sides of the house as he pledged to Bayleigh that he will keep his commitment to her and vote to evict Brett. It was to America, in the diary room, that he told the truth; saying he would keep Bayleigh around until he flushed out her power app. Brett started to work on both Tyler and JC mentioning that an all-girl alliance rumor is floating around, and if true, could dominate all the men in the house since they’re outnumbered. Later, Tyler filled in Brett on Bayleigh’s power, and how it could affect their game.

When it was time for the live eviction, both houseguests gave their final plea, but it wasn’t until Brett said his that the drama unfolded. He made up a lie that Rachel was a ringleader of the female alliance, and he had told her about Bayleigh’s power app that could change the nominations next week. Rachel was seen in complete shock … shaking her head and mouthing that she did not say that. Host, Julie Chen told houseguests they can now cast their votes for the house. One by one they entered the diary room to anonymously vote out either; Brett or Rachel.

via GIPHY

The votes poured in, and unfortunately for Rachel, her time in the “Big Brother” came to an end. Julie revealed to Rachel that she had been evicted by a vote of 5 to 4. It was clear by her reaction that she had no idea this was coming. Immediately, she stormed out of the house on the verge of what looked like an emotional breakdown. During her exit interview, Julie revealed that her alliance, including Angela, voted to evict her. Stunned, disappointed, and visibly saddened, she was shown goodbye messages from the houseguests. The most explosive one came from her thought-to-be-BFF that really took Rachel off-guard. In the video message, Angela said, “Just a few bullet points to go over here. You talked yourself onto the block, you lied to my face and your stories don’t make sense. Our Final 2 deal is about as irrelevant as you were in week two.” The last statement referring to the time Rachel got the “least trending” in the second week of the season, based off of America’s favorites. It was clear this friendship is over and out!

With another power up for grabs, you can tell the houseguests were thirsty to win the HOT. This time they had to play a true or false competition. Contestants were eliminated each round if they guessed incorrectly. It eventually came down to Angela and Rockstar, but in the sudden death question, Angela came out with the win. With Level 6 safe, it looks like it’s time for The Hive to lose another member. (Filed by Jake Updegraf – Big Brother Correspondent)
