So much happened in last night’s episode! I don’t know about you but there’s certain guys that I’m definitely seeing her connection with more every week! Let’s dive right in, there’s a ton to discuss!!
I’ve always liked these two together. And I think considering the fact that the majority of the day was just walking around Boston and they still had a really great time shows that they have a connection. If it was with one of the guys that she wasn’t as into, it would be extremely boring for her. I also liked that there was intimacy but they didn’t just make out the whole time. Which is a connection beyond the physical.
Anyone else think the ice cream ad is a bit ridiculous? Look I get that they need to get ads in in order to make a big show like this. But who eats a pint of ice cream in Boston when you’re wearing a sweater and jacket. That actually sounds pretty miserable to me. Ha! The next date in Rhode Island she had on a puffer jacket and winter hat!!!
I keep saying this every week, I think Jed will be it in the end. And the fact that we saw so much of their date in the episode proves that even more to me. Either the show wants us to fall in love with him for the next Bachelor or the show wants us to fall in love with the relationship. There’s a reason we saw their date through two different commercial breaks.
And obviously the thing about their date that we actually have to talk about is when Jen opened up about coming on the show to further his music career. Heck yes to him for admitting that! I freaking love him even more! I’ve said this time and time again on my blog – nobody is ever thinking they’re going to fall in love. That would honestly be kind of crazy. Ha! Everyone goes on either for a good time and in Jed’s case, he went on because he thought this would be good for his music. I think nowadays it would be absolute BS for anyone to say that they haven’t thought about the upside that comes with being on the show. Heck, when you go on the show now, you instantly become a celebrity if you’re in the top handful of people left on the show. You get millions of Instagram followers and start making money right away. If you didn’t think about that before going on the show I’d say that’s pretty dumb. You have to think about all angles when you do something like this. It’s different from when I was on the show. Instagram didn’t even exist and we weren’t allowed to have social media accounts. So when I went on, it was just for a good time. But nowadays if I were to go on, you bet your bottom dollar I would be thinking about the opportunities that come with it.
And I think the fact that Jared had the balls to admit it is what I adore about him so much. And I think the fact that he was able to admit it, just proves that he’s not there for that reason anymore. Obviously there’s an upside and he realizes that in the back of his head. But the fact that he can tell Hannah that just shows how much he really cares for her. Heck I broke down in tears when he told her the only thing he would really need is her. I just adore them together.
I absolutely hate group dates like this. I remember on my season the date where the guys had to get physical was an olive oil wrestling competition. I absolutely despised every second of it. I don’t like violence and I don’t like the idea that guys need to prove themselves with physical contact. Can you imagine how painful it was every time one of them was tackled to the ground? It’s obviously freezing outside so the ground was probably rockhard. I don’t blame Hannah for the date because I know she didn’t plan it. Just like I did not plan or even approve of the olive oil wrestling date on my season. But there was nothing I could do when we were in Istanbul and that was the date. But I do feel like she encouraged the guys to be physical with “blood sweat and tears..” which I didn’t love.
I mean, of course Kevin dislocated his shoulder. I would be surprised if someone didn’t get hurt. And of course Luke P took it too far. I don’t think that was surprising to any of us either. He just doesn’t get it. For example, Mike is just as physically fit as Luke P and he probably could’ve taken some guys out easily. And he still played the game and was a strong guy doing it. But he didn’t try to take anybody out.
Tyler C Date
I get that Hannah is emotional. I went through what she went through too. So I get it. Being the Bachelorette is hard! I cried so much during my season. But the difference was I pulled it together when I needed to. I feel like her age is really showing in moments like this where she can’t keep it together at the beginning of a date. I don’t know. I hesitate to even write this as I’m doing it. I feel like I’m being a little too hard on her. And as a mom it’s hard for me to be hard on anyone. I became a big sap when I became a mom to a daughter. But the constant tears are just getting to be a bit much. I feel for her though. I know how hard it is. I cried a lot in the show too, I just did it behind closed doors. I guess I kind of think of it like the difference between crying in your car because you’re stressed and crying at work because you’re stressed. There’s a place and a time for emotions and I feel like at the beginning of a date with another guys just not one of those times. If that makes sense
I like him and I think he did a great job comforting Hannah on their date. But I think it’s pretty obvious there’s no chemistry between them. Though I feel like we will see him on Paradise this summer.
And to play devil’s advocate, I know some of you might say that if they’re going to be together they need to be together for the good times and bad. True. But when I go on a first date with somebody I don’t want him crying at the beginning of it. That would be an immediate red flag to me. Ha!
I know we all have to be over the Luke P drama. He’s just the worst! I don’t even know where to start and honestly I don’t even wanna waste my time recapping it all. We all know he sucks. We all know he’s a liar. We all know he is aggressive in a scary way. Can anybody vouch for him? Is anybody reading this friends with him or a friend of a friend of his that can say anything good about him?
Anyway, we could discuss how much Luke P sucks in this blog post or we can discuss Jed’s honesty about his music career. I’d much rather discuss Jed! I just think what he told her is so unique and real and I appreciate it so much. I would love to know what you guys thought!
Until Next Week…
Since no roses were given out this week, we will just have to wait and see what happens with the Luke’s and if she decides to get rid of them, or keep one or both of them around. Maybe they didn’t even have a rose ceremony! We will find out next Monday.
On another note… since Hannah B is clearly gearing up to dive into motherhood once this is all over, last week was a huge indicator of this, I thought this would be a great place to also mention my recent post about baby registry items! Ha! I know that’s a little far fetched, but hey, I’m sure plenty of you are soon to be moms or new moms and would enjoy reading the post anyways! It will be a 3 part series, and yesterday was my first one. It’s all about everything you need in your kitchen after having a baby. From infant to toddler! Check it out if you need any inspiration for your own registry! I’m already working on the next one!
Can’t wait to hear what you guys have to say about this weeks episode! How do you feel about Jed? Or Tyler? Let’s discuss!!!
