Hi Guys! First, while I have your attention (ha!) check out the segment Kevin, Molly and I did on GMA yesterday. Watch it HERE.
Ok, now that I’ve said that, let’s talk about the show! As expected, Corrine took things to a whole other level this week and totally dominated the show. I’m going to get to her in a minute, but first let’s discuss some of the love connections going on!!!
First up – Danielle L! I don’t know how Danielle L wasn’t on my radar until now. Nick is clearly super into her. He felt the need to pull her aside and make sure she wasn’t too upset about the Liz situation. This is a huge sign in my book that he is very into her. I remember on my season, always feeling the need to reassure the guys I liked the most. Plus it was so obvious he was super attracted to her at the Backstreet Boys concert. She’s in my top 4 now for sure!
Nick and Vanessa seem to have a connection that goes beyond the physical and beyond the show. They will either be great friends or a great couple. And if they are really lucky, they will have both! Seeing him cry during the date makes it seem like Vanessa is for sure the girl for him. The difference between his one-on-one date with Danielle last week and Vanessa this week, makes it so clear that he is way more into Vanessa.
And their date was insane!!!! True story – Kevin got offered to do the Zero G thing when I was 7 months pregnant with Molly. We both thought it was a cool experience and I would never tell him not to do something that he wanted to do. However, every time we talked about him going on the zero G plane I would cry. I half blame the pregnancy hormones and half blame my fear of flying. Well I’m not really afraid of flying anymore, but I was for years and the thought of the father of my soon-to-be newborn going up in a nose-diving plane freaked me out!!! Kevin was so sweet about it and decided not to go because he did’t want to make me nervous. What a great guy, right? Anyway, my point in telling this story is 1) My soon to be husband is the best! and 2) Nick and Vanessa have some real balls! Ha! I would have been way too terrified to go on that date.
Luckily they survived to make it to dinner that night. Ha! And I absolutely loved Vanessa’s story about her grandfather. I had a similar experience with my grandmother before going on the Bachelor. I felt like she was with me through the experience and it was so special to me. Hearing Vanessa’s story made me love her even more.
And let’s talk about Dominique quick before I get to Corrine. Nick 100% did the right thing by letting her go when he did. Instead of being mad at him for not connecting with her, she should have realized that they just didn’t have a connection. I hope she finds love though!
I don’t even know how to begin talking about what happened with the whip cream at the cocktail party with Corrine and Nick. At first, I rolled my eyes at what she was doing, like I’m sure many of you did. But after Nick got taken away by Jasmine, and Corrine went upstairs crying, I couldn’t help but feel so sorry for her. She just took off all her clothes and threw herself at a man hoping she could win him over by doing that. Little did she know, Nick wouldn’t fall for her plan and in the nicest way he could, he rejected her advances. I can’t imagine how horrible that must have made her feel. Look, it’s her own fault, I get that completely. But for her to think that this is the way she wins a mans affection when he’s clearly not in a monogamous relationship with her, I find that truly sad. Like heartbreakingly sad. I know I said it in my last blog, but I feel the need to say it again. It would break my heart into a million pieces to see Molly act this way when she’s older. I would never want her to even think this was an option, never mind actually throwing herself at a man like that. Corrine’s tears really struck a cord with me. She reminded me of a girl that had just slept with a guy and woke up the next morning hating herself. I’ve been there. I know many women have. I truly hope Corrine realizes that she can attract a man with so much more than her sexuality.
All that said, Corrine does make the show entertaining. Love her or hate her she will be around for a while. Not only on this season, but on Bachelor in Paradise for sure! But really, Nick should have gone and gotta her butt out of bed to join the rose ceremony. Not cool that she slept through it. Yes, they are exhausting. But all the other girls are exhausted too and they showed up!
Also I don’t believe that Corrine actually has a nanny. Do I believe that her “nanny” Raquel exists? Totally. I think most likely Raquel is her family’s housekeeper and she has been with the family since Corrine was a child. So when Corrine was young, I’m sure Raquel took care of her and was her nanny. Now that Corrine is an adult (and I’m using that word loosely here), Raquel is still around to do things for her, but is employed as her families housekeeper and not Corrine’s nanny. Like I highly doubt Raquel will be going with Corrine when she eventually moves out of her parents house. Corrine just thinks it’s funny or cool to say she has a nanny. You can tell she thinks it’s something that’s funny by the way she talks about it. It’s just because she’s young, and stuff like that seems cool when you’re young. She’ll grow out of it. But it makes very clear to me, and I’m sure to all of you, that she is too young to be Nick’s wife. And not because she’s 24. But because she’s mentally immature.
I don’t know if she’ll ever read this and care what I have to say. But I wish I could sit down with her and make her believe she’s more than all this sexuality garbage.
Ok, I’ll step off my soapbox. I swear becoming a mom has totally changed the way I look at this show. Tell me your thoughts on the episode in the comments below!
