You guys. I watched BIP for the first time ever last night and it’s quite a lot to handle. There are already so many tears and so much drama. I can only imagine what the rest of the season will be like. Where should I begin?
Let’s starts with the cast. I think the girls were cast really well. They are each memorable and I can remember most of their names. The guys on the other hand, not so much. I think Jared, Kirk, JJ, and Tanner were all great choices, but I honestly can’t even remember the names of the other guys. Can you? I know there is a guy named Dan because he is the only one who went and checked on Ashley S when she was taken away in an ambulance. BTW, I really hope that was edited to LOOK like he was the only one, cause everyone else kinda sucks at life if they couldn’t leave their ocean side bar for 5 minutes to check on someone being taken away on a stretcher. So I’m just going to assumed everyone else running up the stairs was just edited out. And I’m not trying to be an ass by saying the guys aren’t memorable. I’m just saying they cast a lot of guys who didn’t get a ton of screen time on their respective seasons, so I don’t know who they are. I’m sure the other guys are great dudes, we just didn’t get to know them well before this.
Let’s talk about Ashley I. Oh Ashley. It’s clear that she is having a difficult time in paradise. I couldn’t keep count, but I’m pretty sure she cried about 5 times on the first day! And I’m ONLY a self-proclaimed dating expert (ha!), but I gotta say that I don’t think leading with how you love Disney Princesses is the best way to pick up a guy. Just saying. Needless to say, I highly doubt Jared is the Aladdin to her Jasmine.
I’m super pumped that Carly and Kirk have paired up. Kirk was on my season of the Bachelorette and I have nothing but GREAT things to say about him and I ABSOLUTELY ADORE Carly from watching her on the Bachelor. I really hope they win this thing.
What else? Jade and Tanner are super cute. Ashley S is the whole reason I am watching this show. JJ actually seems cool to me so far. And I still have no idea why Ashley’s sister was crying. Do you?
Since I have no interest in actually going to paradise, I’ll just put on my favorite Free People dress and head to my own paradise (the beach) here in CA…
I want to know ALL your thoughts on Bachelor in Paradise in the comment section below. Do you guys think it’s good so far? Or too much? Tell me everything!
