So Who is the Front-Runner?!

First, forgive me me if this blog isn’t super detailed or if I missed things that you guys found important on the show. I did my best to watch and tweet along with all of you, but it’s definitely hard with a newborn. At one point I was watching the show, tweeting, breastfeeding, and trying to eat all at the same time! Ha! Multitasking is definitely something I need to get used to as a new mom. Anyway, here is what I thought of last night’s show.

I was really happy to see Alex go home. There was absolutely no chemistry between them at all. You can tell this was a pity date. She was so disinterested the entire time. I really feel like he only got a date because she would have felt bad not giving him one. Especially after keeping him with the “extra rose” last week. Don’t you guys agree? They are so awkward together! She wouldn’t even fake “Pringles kiss” him! You know it’s bad when someone won’t fake kiss you with potato chips. The date was really boring and super awkward at best. No wonder the horse fell asleep! I mean I know I’m sleep deprived with a newborn and all but that date was a snooze fest! And the 3-way with the horse? I think it would have been SO cool in any other circumstance but with Alex it just felt weird.

So jealous of her grape-stomping-date with Jordan. I asked for this exact date on my season of the Bachelorette and never got to do it. It’s definitely an item on my bucket list. I know many of you aren’t fans on Jordan, and I definitely found myself feeling skeptical of him a few times, but we all have to remember that this is a TV show and drama is going to exist. And the guys are going to be weird about Jordan because it’s so obvious that Jojo is super into him. Jordan really won me over last night. It felt real and heartfelt when he told Jojo that he loved her. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been clear every season that I think people say “I love you” way too early on this show. And I don’t even really think people fall in love on this show (I think they fall in love after the show wraps and obviously there are exceptions). But I think that Jordan believes he’s in love right now and he is genuinely expressing that to Jojo.

I really liked the setting of the Group date. It was so cool that Jojo got to hangout with the guys in their hotel suite and just hang. But it was SO weird when they all hung out in bed together and were watching the Brazilian Bachelor. It felt like Sister Wives but it was Brother Husbands instead, Ha.

The whole “front-runner” conversation between the guys was kind of dumb in my opinion. EVERY guy should feel like the front runner, otherwise, why would you stick around? It’s good that Robbie thinks he is and doesn’t like it when the other guys call Jordan the front-runner. He should feel that way. Why would you want to fight for a girl who is more into other guys than you? I dunno. That’s just my opinion. I do Jojo is super into Robbie and will be around in the very end. I honestly think that he might end up with Jojo. So what guy do I think should feel like he’s the front-runner right now? ALL OF THEM! If they don’t and are still there, they’re there for the wrong reasons in my opinion. But we can still choose our front-runners of course 😉

Speaking of front-runners, I don’t think Jojo and Luke will end up together, but Luke definitely won me over as the front-runner for the next Bachelor. I loved seeing him in his element on their date. He seemed so “at home” and natural. I feel like he’s been a bit closed off this season, but we totally saw a more relaxed side of him last night. Would you want to see Luke as the next Bachelor? If not, who is your choice? Tell me in the comments section! Maybe James Taylor is your choice. By the way, I loved JT’s convo with Jojo when she sent him home. It felt very real. I have no doubt that he will find a great girl whether it’s as the Bachelor or in normal everyday life.

Now it’s time for Jojo’s fashion! Everyone was raving about these pants. I found them on two different sites and they are on MAJOR sale. You can get them HERE and HERE. Her top is by McGuire Denim and you can get the exact shirt in light blue HERE or the same style of shirt by McGuire Denim but without the buttons HERE.

1) SUEDE PANTS ONE 2) SUEDE PANTS TWO 3) WHITE SHIRT 4) LIGHT BLUE VERSION

She is really loving suede in this episode and I have to say that I’m loving it on her. These suede boots that she wore are KILLER! Her white poncho is by Alice and Olivia.

Jojo’s outfit on her date with Luke was totally my style. At first I was sure her flannel with a Rails flannel. I’m obsessed with Rails. Their flannel have such a flattering fit and are so comfy. But her shirt is actually by R13. The exact color is out of stock but you can get the same shirt in a different color HERE.

That’s all from me! I’m excited for next week episode! Kaitlyn, Desiree and I will actually be back on the show to follow up with Jojo on her remaining guys!

Until next week…

  1. Absolutely for Luke as next bachelor! He is so handsome and down to earth. Would love to watch him for a season!

  2. So happy for you and Kevin with your new addition – Molly

    I really wish the show would focus more on Chase. he does not get enough air time. I think he would be a good bachelor. Luke has a very different lifestyle that might not work with the woman he would pick should he be the bachelor. Chase could be like Sean. Just a great guy.

  3. Well I’d love her to pick Luke. I have liked him from day 1. But if he’s not the chosen one, then def next Bachelor!

  4. My faves are Luke and Chase. Either one of these two I think will win Jojo heart. Of course I could be wrong. I often am.Ha ha. Yes Jojos date with Alex was super awkward. Congratulations on the birth of sweet Molly.

  5. I am a huge fan of Jordan…. I think they make a really cute couple and seems to be really in love with Jojo… And she seems to be really in love with him as well….. And I do want to say "Congrats" on you beautiful baby girl "Molly" …. I have two daughters and they are truly a blessing from God!!!!!❤️

  6. I am a bit surprised that you don’t think Luke will end up with JoJo. In my opinion, he and Jordan are the front-runners. But if you are right, Luke WOULD be great as the next bachelor. So good looking! I told my husband as we were watching, if he doesn’t do well in the Bachelorette, I am sure he’d end up in Hollywood.

  7. I either think she is going to pick Luke or Jordan. They were my top picks from the very beginning. Don’t like Robby to much. I just have a feeling that the rumors are true of him and his ex and he looks so many girls and jojo doesn’t like that. We’ll have to see on hometowns.

  8. Chase is the only one left I can stand watching. He seems a little overly serious but appears to be a nice guy. Luke for the next Bachelor? OMG I hope not! He literally makes me cringe. Although I cringed a little less this episode. And Robbie? Mr Smooth. As fake as they come.

    I can’t work Jordan out. I just don’t know if he is genuine. Unless something drastic happens, she will choose him for sure.

  9. Definitely Luke for the next Bachelor – love him!! Wish they would end up together, but agree – they probably won’t. 🙁 But can Robby just wear socks, PLEASE?!?! It creeps me out!!

    1. haha. I noticed Robbie was wearing hotel slippers in the room and I thought it looked rather strange. But then he was wearing the same slippers on the bus. No wonder people are saying he’s very feminine.

  10. I would love to see Luke as the next bachelor if he doesn’t get picked by JoJo. Luke has been my favorite since the first day!

  11. I would ALSO love her to end up with Luke. Their chemistry is en fuego!!!! And I dont think for a second that he has been closed off in their relationship. I feel like he has laid low with the other men, but not her. But! If it is not him, I hope he is the Bachelor <3

  12. I agree that we don’t see a lot of Chase, but I’m totally okay with that. When we do see Chase, he comes off as blunt and rude. He just doesn’t seem happy. Maybe he’ll be more comfortable and show more personality in his hometown date.

    I think Luke will be the next Bachelor, but I REALLY hope it’d be James Taylor. He is genuine and funny – all the guys seem to love him, even after he threw them some shade. I think he has way more personality than Luke. If you have any connections (which id think you do lol) PLEASE advocate for JT!

    Congrats on your beautiful daughter 🙂

  13. JT was the most genuine in my opinion, but I’m glad she let him go before hometown. I would hate to see him get hurt even more. He will find an amazing girl no doubt! Luke is so sexy, and a real man for sure. Hope he is next Bachelor. Robbie was a total no after last night. Reminded me of Chad. I think she will pick Jordan, but I’m sorry to disagree Ali. I did not think he sounded genuine at all! He is a competitor and just wants to win. I don’t think they will last if he is her choice. Just my opinion of course! Love your blog, and Molly is beautiful! Congratulations on your sweet blessing!?❤️❤️

  14. I think it’s going to be Jordan or Luke. She has had such chemistry with the both of them. We will have to see the hometown dates. That will have a huge impact on her decision. I actually like Chase more than Robbie….there is just something about him and to find out he only broke up with his ex-girlfriend in December after 4 years..hmmm

  15. I loved how one of the guys told her ( I think It was Luke) that he did not have immediate plans with his life because he was waiting to make them with her after the show. It made me melt!!!

  16. Ali, what size Rails plaid shirts do you wear? 🙂 I usually order the same sizes as you and don’t know if small or medium. Thank you!!

  17. I love your blog! I think James Taylor should be the next Bachelor! He would be the best husband ever, but I am totally rooting for JORDAN! I feel like everyone is giving him a hard time only because they’re jealous…he has done NOTHING wrong. I’m from WI therefore an Aaron fan but now Jordan is my new fave. I can’t believe you didn’t comment on the rap from the bus….my favorite part!!! I love that they make their own fun. I hate the way Luke talks and can’t get past it. He needs to spit out whatever is in there! He just bugs me really bad for some reason and I don’t think he’s hot at all. LOVE this season! And congrats on the babe!

  18. Boo to JT! Think he’s a GREAT guy but not THE NEXT BACHELOR kinda guy! Lol
    Let’s be honest…Luke would be a HOT bachelor for next season! He’s real, down to earth, comfortable in his own skin and not to mention very easy on the eye! I’m sure she’ll pick Jordan because it’s super obvious he’s a front runner since episode 1. However, I’m not convinced that he’s the best choice. I really like him but I don’t think he knows what he wants yet.
    Thanks Ali for the blog! I LOVE it and congrats on your new bundle of joy! She’s precious! ?

  19. I agree with you Ali, I honestly think Robby will end up with JoJo too! After all I kinda looked to see who the final 2 were and it said Robby and Jordan lol! But I’m picking Robbie though, after all I’m a swimmer and he was a swimmer so I have to support and cheer on my swimmer. Swimmers are family, we are there for each other! Anyways yeah I totally love your blogs, and of course your snap chats! Hope everything is going well so far will Mollie, hope your adjusting well to having a baby in the house! Praying for you’re family! Love ya!!

    Xoxoxoxo

  20. I think it might come down to Jordan and Luke. I think she has the most chemistry (what the producers "let" you see) with them. I don’t think Robbie is going to last unless she can get over the fact that he has only been single for about 4 months. I like Chase too, but I don’t feel like he will be in the final two. If Jo-Jo doesn’t pick Luke, I hope he or JT will be the next Bachelor. I, for one, cannot wait for Jo-Jo’s home-town dates. Her brothers I think will be great filters for her. Congratulations on Molly and motherhood! 🙂

  21. Luke’s date was amazing to watch. It’s between him and Jordan. The home dates are going to be important as they should but I think she will pick Jorda .
    Hope to see Luke as the next batchelor.

  22. Hi Ali , Yes you will learn to multitask very quickly, So so happy that you are breastfeeding, Molly will be very satisfied and healthy, breast is best. Anyway, I am right with you on JoJo and the guys last nite, Alex going home wasn’t a surprise, he is a nice (and handsome) guy but just not for JoJo. Having him on the one-on-one date was good because since he hasn’t had one she was able to explore what (if any) her feelings were for him, and it gave him the chance and not to say her never had the opportunity to spend alone time with her. I felt so bad for James Taylor, he is an amazing guy and will make a wonderful partner / husband to a lady. He’s down to earth, sincere, honest and talented and just your hometown guy that is a bring home to mom. Yea the 3 + JoJo is bed watching the TV was odd! really , I was a bit uncomfortable with that, I do like Jordyn, however I feel more will be revealed on who he really is, seems to be some unrest in his life with a family member, not his fault, but will that be an issue in their relationship, JoJo was very surprised (puzzled) about the estranged relationship. So I do like Robbie, and I do like Chase, not sure about Luke though. Looking forward to next week. Thank you for your blog, love it and….. so very happy for you Ali, this is an amazing time in your and Kevin’s life, enjoy every minute 🙂 <3

  24. First congrats Ali on the birth of
    Your daughter. Second I don’t like Luke or Robby or even Jordan for that matter. I think chase is awesome and very good looking. If we Believe Reality Steve, JoJo chooses one of the guys I don’t like or trust. I’m hoping Steve is wrong this time. I also heard that Wells might be the next bachelor. That doesn’t feel right to me either. He was cute but a little intimidated by the other guys. I’m hoping Chase is the next bachelor.

  25. It will be Luke and Jordan as the final two, and Jordan will be the final Rose! Luke or Chaise would make a good next bachelor!
    And you will learn new level of multitasking, that you never thought possible! Little Molly is adorable!

  26. Loved this blog! I agree Luke should be the next bachelor!! So genuine and deep! Seems like a great guy! Robby is my favorite for jojo I think! Something happens obviously and I can’t wait to see what!
    And congrats on little Molly! She’s a doll! ?

  27. love love love reading your blog! little Molly is so precious and I’m so excited for your family – thanks for letting us in!!
    I don’t really like any of these guys for the next bachelor, I think ABC needs to branch out and find someone new. These guys have all been pretty lame this season, in my opinion ?

  28. First Congrutulations Ali on your beautiful baby.
    Second I hope Jojo doesn’t pick Robbie he is not genuine I think he’s on the show to get over his last girlfriend, you just don’t break up a 4 year relationship n 4 months later you are telling someone else you love them.
    Jordan has issues with his family and Jojo will not marry someone that is not as family oriented as she is.
    I think as of right now from what I’ve seen in the show that Luke is the best choice for her and she defenately likes him.
    He seems real!
    Chase is adorable but not for Jojo.
    I loved James, he was real a true gentlemen.
    Hopefully he will find love after the show.
    Or maybe be the next bachelor.
    Thanks for your posts

  29. Not into Luke or JT (but yes for the REAL JT!). I vote for Robby or Chase as the next bachelor. I think it is odd that Jordan called out Aaron on camera. I wonder if Aaron knows he doesn’t have a relationship with his parents? I personally, think that Jordan has a bit of jealousy because he didn’t make it in the NFL. He is coming across rather self-involved and arrogant to me. #Packersfan in Wisconsin

  30. I think James Taylor is too insecure to be the next bachelor. I think she should pick Luke. If she does not, then my vote for next bachelor would be Luke or Chase.

  31. I called the final 4 from the very beginning! And they are my 4 favorites too! I think it’s going to be Luke & Jordan in the final. I’d like to see Robbie as the new Bachelor, but it might be Luke if he doesn’t win.

  32. Ali first of all congratulations on your beautiful baby girl!
    I’m a huge fan since you were on Jack’s season..
    I know some people may be upset about this but I think the front runner is Jordan I can see his honesty and how he is opening up to her..that he has issues with his brother so be it who doesn’t have an issue with someone in their family..family’s are not perfect but we love them no matter what..well that’s my opinion..she is into him big time.. I’m glad Alex and James were gone..I don’t think she will keep chase around to much and sorry for Robbie but 4 month is not long enough to break up with a girlfriend of 4 years..sorry but I don’t believe him to much..and sorry for luke I don’t think is going to happen for him either..although I think luke could be the next bachellor..ok well that is for now..
    can’t wait to see you next monday

  33. I agree with everything you’ve said. I think Luke should end up with JoJo but don’t think that will happen. He will be a good Bachelor for sure though.

  34. Am I the only one thst finds Robbie artificial? He’s a nice guy but I feel like he’s in "fairytale love" way too soon. I personally don’t see a connection there. I feel that the final two will be Luke and Jordan, they’ve had her full attention since the beginning but I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Either way I just want to see JoJo happy and in Love.

    P.S. I’d love to see James Taylor as the next Bachelor. He’s about the most adorable, sweet and sincere male contestant I’ve ever seen on here.

  35. I would love to see Luke as the Bachelor! Either him or Chase would be reason for me to watch the next season. I would not watch the next season if JT was the next Bachelor. I think he is super nice but the season would be kinda boring. I totally think Robbie and Jordan will be the final two. I’m totally team Jordan though!!

  36. Congratulations on your new baby girl ..Molly..She is beautiful.?. .Jojo is really into Jordan…Alex was my ultimate favorite. She didn’t give him any quality time. Chase is cute..but boring. Luke is sincere. ..they have alot of passion (kissing of course). Robby needs a major haircut…lol.. I don’t feel he’s for her…I’m soo glad she got rid of Opie Taylor…He was a troublemaker..I know his name is James…lol I hope Jojo finds TRUE LOVE?..and Picks the right guy…?

  37. I think there are 2 front runners for bachelor JT and Luke. It might be interesting if they do another 2 bachelor thing and have the girls decide. I agree that Alex got the pity date; but they always have one pity date before hometowns he just happened to be it.

  38. Congrats on your beautiful daughter!
    I think JT is sweet, but he doesn’t have enough confidence to be the Bachelor. Being insecure and talking about how perfect the other guys are = unsexy. Sorry JT. And if Jordan doesn’t end up with JoJo, I think he would make a great Bachelor. But so would Luke! Xo

  39. Luke for Bachelor!! ?
    Robby seems fake…saying I love you so early…as though he knew it was what he was supposed to say to stay in the game. Alex too.

  40. Congrats on your new baby girl Molly. She is so adorable
    I’m with you about Jordan. I was very skeptical of him until yesterday. I think he might be genuine. I really like Luke but I don’t think he is for her. Chase needs to step up his talking game if their relationship is going to go anywhere and I’m really glad she sent Alex home!!!❤️

  41. I can’t picture anybody but Luke as the next Bachelor! ? He is so sweet and soo HOT! ? I really think JoJo is going to end up with Jordan. It’s been obvious since the beginning the connection they have.

  42. I vote for Luke for anything! He is gorgeous, manly and honest! James Taylor appears like a nice guy, but he made more than a few snide comments about guys (like Robbie checking out other girls), and I didn’t like that. Congrats on your adorable baby girl!

  43. James Taylor for Bachelor! I think it would be great and so different from any other season. His convo with JoJo before he left just proved the kind of man he is.. SO sweet and kind. Wow.

  44. I do think James is a sweetheart and will be great as the next bachelor…. But, Luke has the looks and personality…. So Luke I say.

  45. I am not a fan of Chase. It appears the final 2 will be Luke and Jordan just by how she is with them so far… I love James Taylor!!! I would like to see a cute, genuine man be the next Bachelor…

  46. I am not a fan of chase either, I think she had a stronger connection with James, but then when Chase said "he wanted to spend the rest of his life w/ her", I guess her feelings changed, & I think she has more "chemistry with him than James. I think Luke will be the last one standing at the end. I don’t see how she could let that good guy go! I think she will get rid of Robbie, which we see in the previews, she keeps digging for more info about his past relationship of 4yr’s, which he just go out of 4months ago, not good, no one is ready to get back in the saddle after only that many months. She will get rid of Jordan, b/c she will confirm that he did cheat on this ex-girlfriend & will find out exactly why he & his brother do not speak, (aaron rogers). I would like to see James as the next bachelor!

  47. I liked Jojo and Jordan right from the start. They seem to have great chemistry together. Luke is a possibility too. Either one would be a great Bachelor for next season. I knew James was going home. I knew he was going home long ago. In that sense I felt like telling him he is perfect husband and father material and she could see herself with him was leading him on when she knew she was sending him home.

  48. I think Luke and Jordan will be the last 2. Robby bugs me too much. I don’t like his hair and he doesn’t seem sincere to me. I think it’s hard for Luke to open up, but JoJo sure has made it clear that their chemistry is off the charts. I think she’d have fun with Jordan but look at Luke as a life partner.

  49. LUKE PELL all the way for Bachelor since I hear Jojo does not pick him. He’s the total package – served our country, singer/songwriter, and doesn’t just say ‘I love you’ to stay in the game. He seems like life-partner material, deep in thought, sincere, and emotionally committed. Not to mention, he is smoking HOT!

  50. LUKE is my choice for the bachelor! I think Jordan wins and I hope he doesn’t break her heart! I like Luke or chase for her but It’s between Jordan and Robbie- Jordan is better in my opinion! Congrats on your beautiful daughter! Love your blog!!! Thanks for sharing all of your insite! ❤️

  51. Luke would be an awesome bachelor!!! James Taylor lacks self-confidence so I just don’t see him as the next bachelor.

  52. My favorite two are Chase and Luke, but Jordan was my pick in the beginning. I don’t know, but there’s something about Jordan that sends up red flags to me. However, I feel like Robbie and Jordan will be the final two, though. If Luke or Chase aren’t picked at the end, I would definitely watch them as the next Bachelor. I just pray JoJo has found her unicorn and she’s happy!

  53. I think Luke would make a great husband and father so if she doesn’t choose him I know my girls and I would love seeing him as bachelor. Heck i would send my oldest daughter if she was old enough. Robbie seems like he needs more time before getting involved in engagement. It’s only been 4 months after break up. Jo Jo needs to listen to her intuition. Thanks for putting links to the outfits. Some sites the links never work to buy able sites. Love your style too!

  54. I would love to know what dress she was wearing at the rose ceremony! i love it so much and i can not find it any where 🙁

  55. Luke will be the next Bachelor. Seems to be a very genuine man. As for the final rose, I’m not really crazy about either one BUT I would like to see Robby over Jordan. Jordan to me is not into it. Something about him says he is not real.

  56. Hi Ali!

    I remember seeing you on the show BUT I can’t remember which show you were on. Would you please tell me? You have a beautiful family! Much happiness to you and your family.
