Oh my gosh, I have so much to say about last night’s episode! Let’s dive right into it!
Gosh, Heather is such a sweetheart. But I have to say on their entire date I just keep holding my breath hoping and praying that she wouldn’t kiss him! Kissing is thrown around on the Bachelor and Bachelorette like it’s sharing candy. Sorry, that’s a terrible example. But it just doesn’t mean anything on the show. Because he’s kissing everyone! The fact that she’s waited this long to kiss anyone in her life she should absolutely save that moment for someone that she has something special with. Maybe he did it because he knew she would be upset if he didn’t!
I don’t know. Maybe some of you have different opinions about this and think she should just get it over with so it’s not hanging over here anymore. And I guess I see the argument in that too. But kissing just isn’t special on the show. It’s not saved for someone special. Everyone kisses! So I just wish Colton had refrained from kissing her. I know the producers were encouraging him and telling him how much she wanted him to kiss her. But it was just so awkward. All of it! I’m sure we will hear from her at the Women Tell All and I’m sure Heather will say that she doesn’t regret kissing him. And maybe she doesn’t! I just felt bummed for her when they kissed. And I couldn’t help thinking if she had any idea what he was doing or if it were felt super awkward to. Ha!
And I don’t mean this in a mean way whatsoever. Because truly I think Heather is one of the sweetest people on this earth! But she is nowhere near ready to get married. Everything from them holding hands to him kissing her I felt like I was watching a 16-year-old on a first date. And again I’m not saying this to pick on her, but I think she said that she was excited about 30 times during the day. Again, she is a absolute sweetheart but the show just isn’t the place for her. But look, if for some reason Colton ends up picking her, which I don’t think he will, then I will eat my words on this. But for now I’m saying that I don’t think that kiss should’ve happened.
What do you guys think? Do you think Colton should’ve refrain from kissing her? Or are you glad he went for it?
I completely understand where Elyse is coming from. I know it might be hard for other people to understand why she so upset after only having one date with him and then hanging out with him in groups a couple other times. Out in the real world it would be absolutely insane if someone got this upset after only spending that amount of time with a guy. We would think they were crazy! But what you have to understand is that on the show you invest so much to take time away from your life to be on it and then when you’re on the show the producers have you talking about or basically thinking about the bachelor 24/7. I can really mess with your head! And think about what she said. She said that she wouldn’t be able to except her proposal after sharing her time with him and other girls over the next few weeks. Doesn’t that make complete sense?! Really the insanity is getting engaged after a guy has been dating multiple people including you for a couple months. Right?!
I was curious about why she wore the dress though. Maybe since it was her so-called “statement dress”, she was saving it for a special night and she wanted to go out looking hot! I tried to find this dress for you, but it is sold out, bummer!! I linked a similar one below!
Major props to the girls for hanging in the jungle. I don’t think I would’ve been super down with searching for grub and worms. And I definitely wouldn’t have eaten one! But I have to say the girls that hitched a ride to get burgers are kind-of geniuses! Ha! I just think it was cute and creative. I’m glad Colton saw it that way too. I feel like the other girls could’ve gotten upset and none of that petty stuff happened which was cool.
First, how the heck has he not been on the one-on-one date with Cassie yet?! She’s been my favorite since day one and I totally didn’t even realize until last nights episode that she hadn’t been on a one-on-one yet. And neither has Hannah G, which I also find crazy because she and Cassie seem like his favorite girls so far – and she got the first impression rose!
But after watching last night’s date we all agree that everyone else can just go home now right?! If he doesn’t choose Cassie in the end I would be absolutely floored. He kisses her so slowly and passionately and from everything he said about her I think it’s obvious that she’s the one for him. So unless something crazy happens and he learns something about her that’s too much for him to handle, she’ll get the Final Rose in the end. I was actually pretty surprised when watching that the show didn’t edit out a lot of their date. But maybe they just couldn’t because if they edited it out there be no date to show! Maybe their connection is just that strong! And it kind of seems like it is. But here’s the thing I’m concerned about. First, they barely even spoke on the date and we obviously saw an edited version of their time together. But I just don’t think it’s in the best interest of the show for the editors to show us them making out the entire date and how strong their relationship is. The show doesn’t want us to know the winner right now because then it doesn’t make the rest of the show as fun to watch. Or maybe they don’t care anymore. Who knows. So I think it’s safe to say not many conversations went on during the day. Just a whole lot of lip locking! That said, maybe they spent a lot of time talking on the group dates. But again, that was all edited out if they did because really we only see them kissing on the group dates. Or we don’t see much of them at all in the group dates. Were the producer’s trying to hide their connection up until now? And now they’re just putting everything out there for all of us to see? I have a lot of questions about all of it! But needless to say if they haven’t spoken much and if this continues I feel like they’ll definitely get engaged at the end of this and just truly not know each other.
I’ve said this a bunch of times on my past Bachelor blogs, to love someone is to know someone. And you just can’t really get to know someone completely on the show. Your time is stretched way too thin! You probably spend a total of 48 hours max with the person you end up getting engaged to. And that’s a generous guess! 24 hours might be more accurate. And that’s including an overnight date! I think before I got engaged on the show I had 2 one-on-one dates with the guy I got engaged to and a handful of times we hung out on group dates. So that doesn’t leave much time to get to know someone. So when that time is spent making out the entire time you certainly don’t get to know that person! I just hope they can pump the brakes on their insane physical attraction and have some real conversations before the end of this. But does this mean they won’t work out if they get engaged? No, not necessarily. Sometimes you’re just a match! But they’ll have to get really lucky. Because right now they have no idea of who the other person is. Even though I don’t know the relationship, I do know what it’s like to be on the show and I can confidently say they don’t know one another.
But I want to leave talking about this date on a high note. I think the cutest couple and I’m truly rooting for them! Rooting for them to end up together at the end of the show and rooting for the relationship!
I found a few pairs of striped pants like Cassie’s from the date! I’ve linked them below!
Drama Between Onyeka and Nicole
Onyeka should of just apologized to Nicole once she was told by Tayshia that Nicole never said she was using the show to get out of Miami. She could have SO EASILY apologized but instead she got defensive and ended up looking silly in my opinion. I wish the drama ended with the episode and I’m not looking forward to more of it next week.
So much to discuss! Let’s chat in the comments below! I want to know ALL your thoughts!
