Morning loves! Got your coffee? I’ve got mine and I have sooo much to discuss with you guys! Last night’s Bachelor in Paradise was sooooo good but it also had be wanting to throw my wine (and this morning my coffee) at the TV. Let’s discuss!
When it comes to this show there’s really only one thing I’m completely certain of right now, and that’s that Chris is a total D-bag! What an jerk, right? The way he talks about women is just disgusting. And he apparently thinks he’s some hot commodity. I’m honestly completely dumbfounded by how many girls are interested in him. I really hope he ends up leaving Paradise soon. Because I don’t think I can handle much more of him.
Last week I was pretty disappointed with Tia regarding how she was handling the Colton situation, but this week I felt so completely and utterly sorry for her. The poor girl has been jerked around by too many people and she definitely reached her breaking point at the beginning of the episode. I see her trying to be strong, like when she confronted Chris about kissing Crystal, and I admire her for that but you can just tell that she’s reached her limit. Not many people could handle the roller coaster of emotions that she’s been through on the show already. The thing that really stinks is that if a guy had shown up the first day who is a great match for her, she wouldn’t be dealing with any of this. It’s such a crapshoot what kind of edit you’re going to get when you go on the show because it all really depends on whether or not you connect with someone right away or not. If you do, you end up being the hero couple of the season like Jade and Tanner. But if you’re jerked around by somebody or if you’re interested in somebody and they leave you for someone else and you get upset, you end up looking needy or unwanted. As much as I love the show I definitely could never be a contestant on it. You never know what you signed up for because you don’t know if you’re going to form a connection right away or not. Those who form the connections right away get a good edit, and those who don’t might end up looking a little desperate are crazy. Even though they’re not. I think I’d probably end up with the crazy girl edit if I went on the show. Ha!
I’m just glad that she and Colton decided to give it a go. Keep in mind, even though we’ve watched hours of the show already and it feels like they’ve been in paradise for a while, they’ve really only been there for a few days. Part of me thinks that Colton just didn’t want to jump into things with her because he didn’t want it to look like he went on the Bachelorette with Becca knowing he was into Tia. So he had to wait a few days so the viewers wouldn’t get upset with him. And I’m not mad at him for doing that. I get it. But I kind of think he wanted to be with her all along at this point. Ok moving on…
I kinda feel like Caroline and Jubilee are both using John. They just don’t seem into him at all. As much as I love this show, it’s embarrassing to see what some people are doing just to get a rose. Or even more embarrassing to see what people will do when they have a rose. What I mean by that is it’s upsetting to me to watch someone who has a rose, and therefore has the power, go around and kiss multiple people throughout the night. And I get that you might think that I’m sort of being a hypocrite because I was the Bachelorette. But in my mind that’s different. You’re kind of forced to date multiple people in that scenario. Put it this way, I would cry on many dates when I was the Bachelorette because I knew I wasn’t going to end up with that person in the end but I couldn’t send everybody home the first or second night. If I were in Paradise, I don’t think I would make out with multiple people in one night to see how I felt. I would already know who I was the most into and I would only want to kiss that person. Again, it’s really hard to explain and some of you might think I’m a total hypocrite for even saying this, but they are just two totally different scenarios.
The whole Jordan situation was pretty disappointing for me. I’ve been a huge fan of Jordan since the beginning and even though he said some mean things in the past, they’ve always been so ridiculous that they kind of end up funny. But I definitely think he crossed the line last night. I just look at him differently now. He’s definitely in the dog-house in my book and the only thing that will probably make me come around to him is to see how he interacts moving forward with Chelsea and Jubilee. If we see them talking on camera that means that he patched things up off camera. Or maybe we’ll even see him patch things up on camera but I doubt it. I feel like that story line has probably run its course and tonight‘s episode is going to be all about Jenna wanting a new guy.
And the last thing I want to say is that I’m totally bummed that Bibiana went home. She seemed like a really cool person that got along with everybody. I especially liked how she talked to Colton about going back to Tia when she knew her stay in paradise was at jeopardy. She very well could’ve asked Colton to give her his rose since she gave her rose to him the week before. But she didn’t do that proving that she was being selfless in the situation.
That’s all I got for now. I can’t wait to see what happens tonight! It looks like it’s going to be a pretty dramatic episode. But aren’t they all! Ha! Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below.
