So this episode started out with a limo blowing up and catching on fire. I’m assuming the bachelor producers told the guys that Jojo wasn’t in there right away. Although we do hear one of the guys say “she’s not in there right?” I wish we knew who said that so Jojo could send him home RIGHT AWAY! Those guys should have been RUNNING to save her! I’ll just assume the producers told them off camera that she was safe.
Is it just me, or does it seem a little unfair that the fireman got to go on the fire fighting date? Of course he is going to win! Oh well.
I’m proud of our girl Jojo because it’s seems like she took my advice and put the two guys she likes the most (Luke and Jordan) on the back burner this week. Of course she wanted to give Luke the group date rose – did you see that kiss? But she is trying to give other guys a chance and I’m glad she is. That’s the reason Jordan didn’t get the first 1-on-1 date. She knows he’s staying around. It will be interesting to see if he gets one next week. I think he will. It will be too hard for her to wait any longer! And while she should put the guys she likes the most on the back burner at the very beginning, she can’t ignore them for too long! Heck, she only has a few months to get to know and possibly get engaged to one of them!
The 1-on-1 date with Derek was so boring to watch right? Jojo was super sweet to him and I like that he opened up. He seems like a super sweet guy, but there was zero chemistry between them. I’ve already forgotten the date. Snooze fest. Sorry Derek! You’re a good guy but it’s just not there between you two.
Let’s discuss the “exciting” part of the episode – Chad. Chad is terrifying. I wouldn’t want to be in the same room as him. But I have to say that he does have a point about these dates being over the top in terms of people professing their love to a girl they don’t even know. Don’t get me wrong, Jojo is FAB! She is the sweetest and let’s face it, the girl has a BANGIN body. But Chad is right that nobody knows her yet, so it’s weird they are all already SO crazy about her. It doesn’t seem real. I remember when I was the Bachelorette, one of my biggest fears was that the guys would trick themselves into thinking they liked me just because I was the Bachelorette. And it feels like a lot of these guys are doing just that. I’m sure it would be easy to fall in love with someone like her – I think I have a little, ha! – but they don’t know her!!! Chad definitely has some good points, but he is going about expressing them in all the wrong ways.
I was honestly super surprised when she kissed Chad at the end of the group date, but then when I thought about it more, I realized that Jojo likes bad boys. And Chad is for sure a bad boy. She’ll eventually see that he’s being an ass and send him home, but right now she’s digging his bad boy attitude.
And can I start campaigning for James Taylor to be the next Bachelor now? The note he wrote to Jojo was SO SWEET! Not forced or fake, but just totally raw and honest. I don’t think he will end up with Jojo, which is why I’m already suggesting him for The Bachelor. He would be so great. I adore him!
Now, let’s talk fashion…
Jojo’s white sweater with the fringe is from Rag and Bone but I can’t find the exact one online anywhere. I’m pretty sure it’s sold out. But you can get a SUPER similar white two piece look HERE. Same with her hot little white two piece that she wore on the first group date. It’s Jonathan Simkhai but I can’t find the exact one online. But there are so many cute white dresses online that you can check out HERE. The black sparkly dress that she wore on the nigh portion of the date with Derek is by Dress the Population and you can get it HERE.
Her white lace top with the black collar only has one size left! It’s by a brand called Self Portrait and you have to check out their clothes! They are pricey but oh so fab!!! I’m obsessed with everything they make. She wears the cute lace top with these killer over the knee black boots.
Her gorgeous burgundy sequin gown that she wore to the rose ceremony is by Mac Duggal and you can get the exact dress in a slightly different color HERE. This week it was hard to find her clothes! The problem is that the season was filmed months ago so a lot of the clothes are gone by the time we see them on the show. Hopefully I’ll have better luck next week!
Until next week…
