THE BACHELORETTE: Two Rose Ceremonies, A Lumberjack Fetish  & One Guy Tells Becca He Is Falling For Her Then Takes It Back

Courtesy/ABC

On week four of The Bachelorette, two rose ceremonies, a contestant professes his love only to kinda, sorta take it back, and then is shown the front door, and the return of David following his fall to the floor from a bunk bed took center stage.  Let’s begin.

At the top of the show, David is let out of the hospital and returns to the house with a broken nose and contusions on his face. Becca gives him a rose so he can go rest, and to not have to stand up during the rose ceremony.  Jordan continues to be enraged over David, and vice versa.  The “male model” cannot believe Becca gave the guy a rose.  Later at the rose ceremony, Mike and Ryan (who we do not recall ever was heard uttering a word, or sound ,during the last several weeks) were sent packing.

Next stop, Park City, Utah, where Becca and the 15 remaining contestants get to know each other a bit more on a massive Lumberjack group date and, for Garrett, another one-one-one date.  During one of her testimonials to the camera, Kufrin shares: “With Garrett, every time I think about him I get butterflies. He just makes me feel like I can be me and be my goofy self and he embraces that, because he’s the same way. He reminds me of home. I feel like my dad is watching throughout this and Garrett is just somebody that he would really, really like. And that honestly warms my heart.”  From all appearances, Garrett is the frontrunner, and after all he did receive the first impression rose.

Later at dinner, and on his one-one-one date, Garrett reveals to Becca he is divorced, and that is ex-wife, was “emotionally abusive”.  He has tears in his eyes when he admits that no one from his family has ever been divorced.  Turns out that Garrett was engaged for a year, and then two months after they made it official the union went bust.  To ease Becca’s fears, he tells her, “I’m going to be in it, because the next person I say ‘I love you’ to is going to be the person that I see myself spending the rest of my life with. So I’m here for you … and for this to work.”

Then, we learn Becca’s got a Lumberjack fetish stemming back to her days in Minnesota.  She has 13 of her gents get dressed up in flannels, and seemingly “arranged” for a competition that included: wood-chopping, log-flipping, and of course, axe-throwing.

Now at the evening portion of the date, Jordan once again parades around in his underwear, while Jean Blanc does a major misstep.

Jean Blanc, who feels he must make his move, now pulls Becca aside and gives her a special bottle of perfume, because remember he is “colognoisseur.”  Next, he pretends to whisper in her ear and then kisses her, which makes Beeca move away from him.

Later on, Jean Blanc somehow gets more private time with Becca and reveals: “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I really haven’t felt like this in a long, long time. I wanted to let you know that I’m truly falling for you, and I’m falling in love with you.”

Becca is not liking this one bit, and tells Jean Blanc she is sending him home, because they are on different pages.  As she is walking him out, he seems to want his perfume gift back.  Then, he goes back on his comments to her, saying that he said he was falling for her, because he thought that is what she wanted to hear.  Becca becomes defiant, and after making sure Jean Blanc is gone from the premises tells the remaining guys that she is really mad, and if they can’t be honest with her, they need to leave.

After her little emotional meltdown, she picks herself up the next day to go on a one-one-one with Wills.  Becca says he is the perfect guy to have been understanding and to pick-her-back up following her downtrodden previous experience with Jean Blanc.  Wills is super nice … Becca appreciates it … and gives him a rose.

In the end, Becca decides to forego the weekly cocktail party before the rose ceremony, and just go directly to the big moment, as she knows what she wants, or so she says.  She eliminates Nick and Christon.

Awkward moment of the episode: Lincoln stating that he believes the world is flat.

So, what do you think of Jean Blanc’s moments with Becca? Is Garrett the frontrunner? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

BIG BROTHER Recap: Faysal Flops As HOH

After last week’s fifth blindside against FOUTTE … yes, we said “fifth,” Rockstar was sent packing.  The cards were stacked against her as it was during her BFF Haleigh’s HOH and for accidentally giving Tyler the answer in the veto ceremony.  All of this lead up to last night’s episode that gave us a new HOH!

The show started out with an intense endurance competition that had all of the remaining houseguests hungry for the power. It was an intense with Scottie, Faysal, and Tyler in the lead, but Faysal eventually came out on top. Scottie, Haleigh, and JC all felt comfortable with this win – specifically JC because he was sure he could control his nominations.

With Faysal in power, he told Haleigh that he would be targeting the men in the house after they have proven to be backstabbing him over and over again. Level 6, on the other hand, felt in danger. So, they came up with a plan to pin the only vote to save Rockstar on Brett, even though it was Scottie who had really saved her. Faysal asked while in his HOH room, who was the one vote to save Rockstar? Both Brett and Scottie raised their hands with Kaycee acting as if she thought Scottie saved her. It was a last minute plan in hopes to get Faysal to nominate Scottie.

Haleigh was worried that Faysal would go through with nominating Scottie. She was desperate to convince him otherwise, because she believed he was on their side. However, JC was in his ear telling him the complete opposite to save Level 6 (which could backfire considering he’s unaware of the true alliance that may potentially send him packing later in the game).

As the HOH nomination came around, Faysal went with his gut and nominated Brett and Scottie. The members of Level 6 secretly laughed at his poor judgment; while Scottie was shocked by this betrayal.

What did you think of Faysal’s nominations? Who are you hoping wins the Power of Veto? Share your theories in the comment section below, and find out Wednesday night at 8/7 on CBS!

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.
