THE BACHELORETTE: Clare’s Laser-Focus on Dale Pisses Off The Other Guys; ABC Exec Robert Mills Reveals The Turning Point When They Knew They Had To Replace Her

There was a lot to unpack on last night’s episode of ABC’s The Bachelorette, and it’s becoming harder to like Clare and Dale in this messy first part of the season where everyone is awaiting next week’s installment where things are previewed to really blow up.  Thus, setting the stage for Tayshia Adams to replace Clare as the new ‘Bachelorette’.

So here is what went down: Yosef finally could not take it anymore and had to get off of his chest what he felt about Clare … to her! In a moment alone with her, he told her how “immature” she was and how demeaning it was to the men to make them play “strip dodgeball” and that the way she was behaving is not something he wants his daughter to see.  He tells her there are a lot of  “red flags” surrounding her.

Yosef then launched into: “I’m ashamed to be associated with you!” Adding, “I can’t believe I sacrificed so much to be here just for this tasteless and classless display.”   Clare fired-back, “I never thought I would have to repeat these words to another man. I would never want my children to have a father like you. Get out of here.”   Of course, Clare was referencing her tirade launched on Juan Pablo during his season of The Bachelor in which she was the runner-up.  Back to this season, an angry Yosef gets in the limo and it is driven away, and thus he is never to be heard from again in the episode.

But lo and behold, who should come to crying Clare’s rescue? Yup, you got it, Dale, the man she is enamored with, holding her in his arms and consoling her.  Later, Clare in a testimonial tells the cameras she is falling in love with him.

Fast forward – after cancelling the group date Clare brought the following men outside of her place for a cocktail party: Jason, Jay, Eazy, Chasen, Blake, Ed and Riley … and Dale! But then Dale tells the guys he wants a few moments alone with Clare and will be back.  Next thing you know Clare and Dale are gone for an hour because they are making out at Clare’s place, until Eazy finds them together, at that point, pretending that they were just hanging out.  Now all the guys are pissed at Dale.

Next, Clare goes on a one-one-one date with Zac J. and it blows up in his face, when he goes in for a kiss and grabs her by the neck and the arm and she doesn’t like it.  Later, Chris Harrison tells him that Clare will not be joining him for dinner, so he is sent packing and limo’s off the show too!

Then, we come to the ‘Roast’ where the guys are going to learn how to do some comedic roasting of one another by comedian Margaret Cho, who came to the La Quinta for a guest appearance on the reality-dating show.. But instead of throwing zingers at each other, Dale was the epicenter of the remarks, especially from Bennett, who really laid in to him as witnessed by Clare and Margaret who thought it was very hostile, while the other men really enjoyed it.

Later, during a cocktail party where all the guys were hoping for one-one-one time with Clare, she spent the entire party individually talking to them about Dale, and what Dale was saying about her in the house, and about the hostility shown to him by all the guys,  Then, the guys were over her!   After the suitors did not “give her what she needed,” Clare told a producer, “I’m not going to sit there (after they) dished on my fiance; so hard!” What?

In addition, after the roast group date that went south,  Clare during a testimonial decided to give herself the rose instead of any of her suitors! On former ‘Bachelor’s” Nick Viall’s podcast, ‘The Viall Files’, Robert Mills, ABC’s Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming, noted that was the turning point for the production, citing: “When she didn’t give out that rose and she just gave it to herself, that was it.  That was really it, when we started making the call (to replace her).”

At the end of the episode, we were given a sneak peek to next week which will air on a special night due to the presidential election. The Bachelorette returns on Thursday November 5th.  In the preview, Tayshia is seen coming out of a pool in a bikini, as Clare’s time as the ‘Bachelorette’ is quickly coming to an end.

Meanwhile, one of the frontrunners, ‘The Bachelorette’s” Kaitlyn Bristowe received some heavy criticism from the judges after dancing with her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev to Rihanna’s “Disturbia”.  In her Cruella de Vil outfit and dancing the Paso Doble, the duo received their lowest score since earlier in the competition which totaled a 24 out of 30.

Carrie Ann Inaba told Kaitlyn that she felt like she “gave up” during the performance and that she “felt her spirit drop”.  Following the night of competition, Bristowe who was saved for another week, talked with ET were she disagreed with Inaba stating, “It’s not in my character to give up. If anything, I might get tired at one point, but I’m pushing through as hard as I possibly can. I would never give up.”

The first perfect score of the season (3o out of 30)went to Nev Shulman and pro partner Jenna Johnson’s rendition of the Paso Doble dancing to the Swan Lake Remix by District 78 with costumes inspired by the movie Black Swan.

During the results portion of the show, Monica Aldana and Val Chmerkovskiy were sent home by a 2 to 1 vote from the judges over Jeannie Mai and Brandon Armstrong.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Thomas Gets Creepy As The Hope Mannequin Talks To Him

Leave it to the good folks over at The Bold and the Beautiful to incorporate a play on their headline-grabbing mannequin use during Covid-19.  B&B was the first American television show back in production during the pandemic, and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, told the media how they were using mannequins in several scenes in place of real actors when it comes to some intimate moments between characters.  Since the time, the show has also brought in real-life partners of their cast members when needed for a make-out scene, etc.

And that brings us to Thursday’s shocking reveal on the CBS daytime drama series, when Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), who seemed to be a more centered-version of himself of late, takes home with him the Hope for the Future shipment and opens the box.  He is for a surprise when inside the box is a lifelike mannequin of Hope  (Annika Noelle).  And from there, things spiral out of control, as viewers learned Thomas’ obsession with Hope is alive and well.

Thomas just can’t believe how life-like the mannequin of Hope is – saying to himself, “No wonder they use it for the Hope for the Future line.”  But then  after he takes the mannequin out of the box, it starts talking to him … in Hope’s voice, begging him to allow her to stay there with him and not put her back in the boX saying, .Please don’t lock me up in that box again.   I’ve been away from you too long… I know you want to be with me too.”  Then, Thomas who is having a very hard time between reality and this apparent hallucination shouts: “You’re not real!” What’s wrong with me?”

 

Perhaps Liam said it best earlier in the episode when Hope was speaking about Thomas to him, when he uttered.“I get creeped out just thinking about Thomas.”

Watch some of the Hope-mannequin action with Thomas below. Then weigh-in, what do you think of this plot twist? Share your thoughts in the comment section,
