Man, my feelings about the guys at the MTA were seriously bipolar last night. At first, I was annoyed with a lot of them because they wouldn’t stop bickering. Then, I loved them all when they stood up and applauded Kaitlyn after Chris Harrison addressed the cyber bullying. Then, I went back to being annoyed with them when they were questioning Kaitlyn for following her heart with Nick.
Let’s start with Ian’s apology. It was so odd and awkward at first, but in the end, I think he was pretty genuine. Look, part of me thinks he’s still vying for a spot as the next Bachelor. I mean come on, he totally got down on one knee to show us what he would look like proposing as the Bachelor right? One last desperate attempt. Ha. Kidding. He has got to know he stands no chance of ever being The Bachelor. I just think he felt really bad about how horribly he acted, and wanted to apologize and redeem himself at the same time. It worked in my opinion. Kaitlyn accepted his apology and I think America did too. Well, I did at least.
Ian – Always on his knee, but doesn’t get the girl
Now onto Kupah. Oh Kupah Troopa. What I can’t stand about him is that he voted for Brit, which basically means he came on the show for Brit over Kaitlyn, buuuuuut he thinks it was wrong for Nick to come on the show for Kaitlyn? This makes NO sense to me. Just because Kaitlyn talked to Nick a few times, that doesn’t mean she was sure she wanted to get engaged to him or even date him. She would have had NO way of knowing that the producers would even allow Nick to come on the show. She left for the Bachelorette thinking she would never be with Nick because she was going to meet 25 guys to potentially get engaged to. It must have been such a nice surprise when Nick showed up. She would have been crazy not to have him come on the show, knowing she was attracted to him.
But yes, I see where the guys are coming from in terms of being upset about Nick coming on the show. But they kept accusing Kaitlyn of knowing she wanted Nick before the show, and said she shouldn’t have become the Bachelorette if she liked Nick. Really? Because she flirts with a guy via text a few times, she shouldn’t accept a once in a lifetime opportunity to be the Bachelorette and potentially find the man she’s supposed to marry?? Yeah, I don’ t think so. Also, I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. This show is about finding love, and if she thinks it could potentially be with Nick, then she would be doing a disservice to all the guys by NOT letting him come on the show. Would you really want to marry a girl thinking she may have chosen someone else?
Now let’s talk about Ben Z. I can still hear the audience screaming after Chris Harrison called his name. Ha! Ben Z is being set up as what I like to call the “BB” – the Back-up Bachelor. When Chris Harrison asked “have you cried since?” He was totally setting up a potential season with Ben Z as the bachelor and him finally crying for all of us to see. And if he does become the Bachelor, we WILL see him cry. Trust me. The producers will make sure he cries. It will be their main objective the entire season. But I think the only way Ben Z will be the Bachelor is if Ben H turns it down.
Speaking of Ben H, I don’t have a ton to say about him from last night other than I was loving the behind the scene info he was sharing. Overall he was wholesome as always. Exactly how the producers would want him to be if they were setting him up as the next Bachelor. We shall see in time.
Now let’s talk about Cyber Bullying. I am so glad the the show took this opportunity to shed light on how hurtful cyber bullying can be. You could see it in Kaitlyn’s eyes. I know many people think it’s okay to say horrible things to her because she is a public figure now, but that’s just not okay to think. Kaitlyn is human. She is JUST… LIKE… YOU. Just because she is on a show that millions of people watch, it doesn’t make her less human. Don’t people realize that a year ago no one outside of her personal life knew who she was? She was just a normal girl in Vancouver living her life. Just because she took this giant leap of faith to be the Bachelorette, doesn’t keep her from feeling hurt. It doesn’t shield her from self loathing. Sadly, she looks in the mirror just like you and I do and picks herself apart – wants to be prettier, smarter, skinnier. She is an everyday woman. We should be building her up just like you would a sister, a friend or a best friend. So often, I find people tweeting horrible things to me and I think “Do they think I’m a robot, non-human? Do they think I won’t read this or that I will read this and it won’t hurt?” My point in all this is that me, you, Kaitlyn, we are all just people. People who want to be accepted and loved. Spread love today my friends. Spread beautiful, love and respect.
