The Bachelor Finale

And another Bachelor season is in the books! Last night we saw Nick chose Vanessa over Raven in one of the most romantic Bachelor finales ever…JOKES. It was actually one of the worst and most boring finales ever. Let’s dive in.

The episode started with Raven meeting Nick’s family again. Honestly, nothing relatively interesting even happened in this part. Nick’s family has to be the most boring people ever. They just look so depressed. The mom always looks like she is going to cry. I mean I get you are stressed out for your son, but do you have to look like you are at a funeral? They really put a damper on things. Maybe that’s why the girls run for the hills. I’m sure they are nice people, they could at least act a little more excited. One two side notes, Raven’s eyelashes were throwing me off the whole night and Nick’s sweater game is TERRIBLE. He looked like a lumberjack and reminded me of my brother’s…maybe they should be friends.

Vanessa is not shy at all, is all I have to say about her meeting Nick’s parents. I admire her confidence and openness to expressing her feelings and concerns for the family, but she comes off a little self-absorbed. It definitely shows her maturity and think that is something she has up on Raven. I think Nick’s conversation with his dad was interesting when he voiced concerns about Vanessa being his type. He really does go for one type of girl and I don’t blame his dad for being hesitant. Nick’s dad’s conversation with Vanessa was touching because both of them started crying. I don’t doubt Vanessa loves Nick, they are just going to have a lot of work ahead of them.

The dates were boring as usual. The one funny thing Nick said on Vanessa’s date was “Just give him a little squeeze with your thighs, you know how to do that.” The whole Santa thing was so weird and stupid. That is what I call a phone break. I understood Vanesssa’s concerns at the end of the night and I like how Nick said he wasn’t going to tell her what she wants to hear. That shows how honest he is with her and I think that was really mature of him. I’ve just kind of had it with their always serious conversations. Like lighten up, make some interesting tv to watch. It’s too much like real life, but maybe that’s a good thing for them.

Raven and Nick’s date was boring but cute. They are fun to watch together. That’s what dating should be like. The puppies were the best part. Listen up boys, the way to woman’s heart is through PUPPIES. I would have cried. It was hard to watch Raven get her heartbroken. She took it with such grace that I would never have been able to do. I rolled my eyes when she was saying in the car that she would never find love. Please girl, there is no doubt in mind that you will find love. It’s a blessing he let you go, you can do 10x’s better. Nick’s not even that cute. I’m not worried about you Raven!

Nick’s proposal was sweet to Vanessa. I hope they make it work, but I don’t know if it will. I get tired of listening to their serious talks after two straight weeks, I can only imagine what it is like everyday. I respect Vanessa for keeping it real on After the Final Rose and not pretending like everything is just so perfect. Just play it up a little, this is still TV. Whether they make it or not, I’m not trying to see Nick on the franchise for a fifth time.

Prediction: I give Nick and Vanessa 6 months. Raven will find love on Bachelor in Paradise.

P.S. I totally called Rachel’s season starting on the after show. It’s the only thing surprisingly the show hasn’t done yet. I loved it though. When Eric walked out and started dancing with Rachel, I think we just witnessed love at first. I know we only met 4 guys, but I have a good feeling about the two of them. Can’t wait to watch Rachel and Eric fall in love next season. Is it May yet?

The Bachelor Review

Yay it’s Bachelor Monday! This week we got three hours of The Bachelor, the final three dates and the women tell all! It was a night full of drama, so let’s dive in.

The show began with the end of Raven’s fantasy suit date. “Let’s just say Nick is good at what he does.”-Raven. Well honey I hope so,  he’s thirty freaking six. Looks like Nick gave Raven that big O. Then the really weird montage of Raven dancing around town. Like was that supposed some visual representation of what the big O is? Just no. Too corny. Anyway, I love Raven I give her props for admitting on national television that she’s only been with one guy and hasn’t you know what. She’s a girl who thinks highly of herself and I f with that. Unfortunately, I don’t think she’s the one Nick picks. She’s too young, but there’s no doubt in mind she’ll be just fine.

On to Rachel’s date. First off, who the heck thought cross-country skiing would be a good date? That crap is hard asf. As a skier, getting stuck on the flat parts is the WORST THING EVER and it’s not like they were even dressed in proper ski gear. So, I totally feel you Rachel. I didn’t pay too much attention to the date because it’s pointless since we already know she is The Bachelorette. Watching it with that critical eye, I can see how their connection just wasn’t as strong as Vanessa’s and Raven’s with Nick. My personal favorite line was “I know we are going to go so much deeper than we’ve gone before,”-Rachel. Literally Rachel, literally.

And lastly, Vanessa’s date. Another stupid date. Nick, are you trying to give Vanessa the flu? I loved how Vanessa kept cursing. Love me a person with a good potty mouth. She earned more points in my book. What I love about Vanessa and Nick is that they always have real conversations. None of it feels forced and it feels like we are actually watching a true couple talking. There is no doubt in my mind Vanessa is the one for Nick. He keeps saying how he likes to be challenged and boy does that girl challenge him. She’s not just stroking his ego because she wants the final rose. She says how she’s feeling and she’s not going to change herself to impress Nick. That’s badass. Also really producers? Don’t make the girl but a damn shirt on after the fantasy suit date. We obviously know what they did that night, but come on let us use a little much of our imagination.

Rachel getting sent home wasn’t too sad because we knew it was happening and she’s going to be the Bachelorette. Nick, telling a girl how great she is doesn’t make her feel much better. You still didn’t pick her. But, Rachel is going to slay as the Bachelorette and I can’t wait to watch!

Alright on to the Women Tell All! The night where you are trying to figure out if these girls were even on the show. Poor Nick had to walk in to my personal hell when he crashed the sorority house viewing party. “I literally almost fainted.” “He’s actually very hot like super hot.” Don’t you just love how they play into those stereotypes?

Let’s start with Liz. I wish she told Nick in the first place that she was hung up on someone and that’s why she didn’t pursue him. It would have made her seem so much less crazy. Maybe she did say it and the producers painted her differently. She’s actually a really good person and I’m glad people got to see that. I love how one second the girls are attacking her than the next they are like GIRL POWER we love you. You girls are so two- faced. Smh.

Taylor. The actual worst. I hope I never have to hear the words “emotional intelligence” EVER AGAIN. What normal person uses that phrase?? “I was giving feedback,” like OKAY, sure. Girl stop walking around like you are something special with your Masters Degree in psychology. It’s freaking PSYCHOLOGY, the most popular major ever. I was rolling my eyes so hard when she starting crying her fake tears. Really? Your life has been so hard after the show? People are so mean to you. Boohoo. You signed on to this and you brought it on yourself. Not getting sympathy from anyone. I wanted to give Corrine a standing ovation when she got up to get a glass of champagne. YAS GIRL. I feel you. I would need to be drunk to deal with these stupid bitches too. When she tried to say that mental health counselors are discriminated against or under appreciated???? Girl you are talking out of your butt. Obviously Taylor is the one who needs counseling.  Sure, you have a whole other party of your life yet you don’t freaking show it and don’t stop talking about intelligence. OKAY. And then expects an apology. GO AWAY.

CORRINE. Honestly, this girl has grown on me since the whole Taylor debacle. That whole feud actually made me like her. I think she’s just a victim of editing and is definitely not as stupid as everyone thinks. Best line of the night: “Everyone naps just like everyone poops.” The girl speaks the truth. These girls were freaking out so much about a stupid nap who freaking cares. You petty girls were just intimated by her that’s it plain and simple. Corrine did not owe Taylor any apology and I don’t know why the other girls think the two of them should have buried the hatchet. They never have to see each other ever again after this show so who the heck cares. I totally support Corrine with not apologizing. I wouldn’t have. The way she talked about Raquel was sweet. This girl isn’t some heartless bitch like Taylor tried to make her out to be. And the cheese pasta at the end was the best part. I wish I could have had some. I hope we see Corrine in Bachelor in Paradise. I need her one liners in my life.

Kristina had me and the whole place in tears. The girl has an amazing story and I really hope she uses this platform to do some good.

The rest of the night was boring and I could really care less about the girls grilling Nick. I can’t wait for next week to see if my prediction is right!
