THE BACHELORETTE: Chris Seals His Fate & Reveals He Was Fat-Shamed, Jason Moves Up in Becca’s Heart, Six Now Remain

Courtesy/ABC

In week six of Becca Kufrin’s quest for love on the 14th season of The Bachelorette, annoying men were the order of the day, especially during a trip to Richmond, Virginia.

Chris, who is trying to recover from the mess he made last week, seems particularly ready to strike and lash out during the episode, and seems to have a continued bickering session with Lincoln, the guy who was convicted last month of indecent assault and battery.

This leads to a horrendous group date in front of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln impersonators, who revealed that the day would involve the men participating in a “political debate” on the capitol steps.  Who comes up with this stuff?  Now the men are forced to “campaign” for Becca’s heart.

Questions are asked of the remaining guys who give pat, boring answers to “impress” Becca.  However, the debate dissolved into a public verbal spat between Chris and Lincoln.  Out of nowhere, Chris brings up that he used to be 300 lbs and Lincoln ‘fat-shamed” him, and how Lincoln is not on the show for the right reasons.  Somehow, the Governor of Virginia also got roped into the episode standing up and asking a debate question.  Awful.

Kufrin, who appears to be embarrassed by what transpired earlier, and who is again ticked off, pulls Chris aside at the afterparty and confronts him about hearing he was aggressive and verbally abusive towards the other men.  Becca is pissed again, so she says she needs a moment to collect herself, and the other men are fed up with Chris, now that they have less time with Becca.  When she does calm down she picks things up with Garrett (Does anyone else think he is the top choice right now, by the way she acts around him?) Eventually, she gives the group date rose though to Colton, which upsets Garrett and the others.

After what we think looked like an awkward one-on-one date with Leo (Who Becca would not connect at the start of the date, but by the end let her guard back down) this ‘Bachelorette’ apparently enjoyed it.  So, Leo got a rose.   When he returned to the house where the men were hanging out, Chris saw he received a rose.  That was the last straw for Chris!   He heads over to Becca’s hotel and her room.  This sealed his fate.  Once inside, he proclaims to Becca that he could see himself marrying her, after just last week saying he was considering going home because he wasn’t sure where their relationship was going.  Becca cuts him off and sends him home, saying that the two of them would never work out.

However, in the best one-on-one date we have seen Becca have all season, she finally gave Jason a chance.  Even though they attended a weird goth “Unhappy Hour”, when they finally sat down at a “dinner table” to discuss their lives, Jason revealed what it was like watching his father losing his grandmother to Alzheimer’s and Becca followed up with talking about losing her dad when she was only 19.   Jason also had the advantage of the producers lining up three of his best friends to surprise him on his date with Becca.  This humanized Jason even more, and made him look like a “stand-up” guy to Becca, and actually made him appear to be the most down-to-earth of all the men still in the running.

At the end of the episode, Becca once again did not want to have a cocktail party, which would have given Connor maybe one last chance to get some “me” time with her. However, Becca already knew, who she was going to send packing so she wanted to just have the rose ceremony.  When the ceremony went down it was Connor and Lincoln who were out.   This left only six: Jason, Colton, Garrett, Wills, Leo and Blake.

What did you think about Chris’ meltdown?  Who do you think has the best odds at getting the final rose now? Weigh-in via 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)
