Bachelorette Becca recap: Tia, wouldn’t wanna be ya

Bachelorette Becca Recap – Hometown Dates

“I’m sorry. I’m probably going to hell.”

You know it’s a stellar episode when someone from your watching party utters that phrase within two minutes of the opening montage.

Hey Becca. America saw your butt cheeks thanks to an infamous Jump & Straddle (trademark pending) in an ill-fitting floral purple romper. I had many things to say about your wardrobe choice that I shan’t repeat here.

Okay, twist my arm.

  1. I had no idea the American Girl store had an indecent line of clothing for their more capricious dolls.
  2. Build-A-Bear: Not just for bears anymore. Thanks Bachelor Nation!
  3. Becca’s favorite colors: short and tight.

Seriously. Becca was either nearly spliced in two after that J&S, thanks to her thong, or she was going full-on commando.

No one needs to see your naughty bits, Becca. Put some pants on.

FIRST HOMETOWN DATE
Garrett
Manteca, California

Garrett’s family is in the agriculture business. That means they call themselves “farmers” but employ people like Carlos to drive them around on big tractors with benches on the back so Garrett and Becca can plant seeds in style.

This convenient contraption comes in handy since Becca read “pastoral tilling” on the producer’s call sheet and dutifully chose the aforementioned baby romper paired with platform wedges for a day of harvest in the fields. Basically, Garrett and Becca make out while holding tomato plants instead of actually planting tomato plants.

The tomato crop will be sketch next year, but Garrett may have found his one true love. It’s all worth it in the long run.

Garrett hops up onto a tractor and Becca sits in his lap. It’s a fantasy for most women who didn’t grow up around farming/ranch equipment. She thinks his tractor’s sexy. It really turns her own. She always starin’ at him, as he’s chugging along.

They also plant a rose bush by a random tree near the tomato fields so Garrett can pick her roses for the rest of their lives. Kudos to the ABC Intern for procuring a rose bush, finding a shovel, and digging a hole so fast. They will be able to pull that bush right up next week when Garrett is sent home after fantasy suites.

Becca and Garrett sit on the ground and talk about his ex-wife. Becca asking Garrett about his first marriage is the same as everyone in the world asking Becca about Arie. Let’s put both of those topics to bed, shall we?

Garrett’s family is concerned. They are really nervous that this random woman who once loved a race car driver / real estate developer named Arie will break their boy’s heart in a million pieces, just like the evil ex. His sister even breaks down mentioning Garrett’s inability to find love and her voice reaches an octave only dogs can hear. She moans on and on about how the life was sucked out of Garrett and she no longer could summon her patronus to save the day.

Garrett’s parents harp on the fact that his life was utterly destroyed. All vow they will guard and protect him until the bitter end. No one offers to get a tattoo. Garrett implores them all to take a chill pill. He’s got this. Becca is in his future and he is falling in love.

That typically signifies a nail in the coffin. We shall see.

SECOND HOMETOWN DATE
Jason
Buffalo, New York

In just a matter of a few days, Jason’s hair manages to grow a few inches and look a little more greasy. As a true “Buffalonian,” he scoots her over to the world-famous Anchor Bar for a chicken wing eating contest.

  1. Is Buffalonian a real word?
  2. How cute was Becca when she borrowed a hair tie from the ABC Intern to pile her hair on top of her head for optimal chicken wing consumption?
  3. Dear Lincee’s Future Husband: NEVER TAKE ME TO A CHICKEN WING EATING CONTEST!!!
  4. It’s a good thing that Jason is such a great kisser, because a bowl full of tiny bones is the opposite of romantic.

Jason claims he was “born with skates on his feet,” which must have been torture for his mother. He takes Becca to a rink and proves that he has enough skating talent to be very very attractive to those of us who like that sort of thing. When he dips her on the ice, I melt.

Jason takes Garrett’s boring John Deere and raises him a Zamboni. She giggles as they ride around on the machine. Becca seems to prefer ice verses soil.

Later that night, Garrett introduces Becca to his family. His mom, Dale, is a babe. I need to know her nighttime skin routine. She thinks Becca is the best because Becca is looking for “her person” and Garrett is looking for his person. He’s her lobster. She’s his lobster.

Dale wants Becca to know that Jason has never been this excited about a lady. Additionally, when he makes a commitment, it’s a commitment FOR LIFE. She also wants her son to know that she has no idea if Becca is into him. Dale warns Jason that Becca’s heart might be leaning in another direction.

Does Becca’s true north live in Colorado and wear his emotions on his sleeve? Or does he have a lot of product in his hair? Stay tuned.

Jason says that he definitely came from behind, but he feels like he’s in the running now. His brothers wants to know if he’s told Becca.

Uh, no.

Jason’s brother reminds his bro that there isn’t a lot of runway left and he has to ramp things up during the home court advantage.

Look! It’s a well-adjusted family member who gives solid advice!

Jason takes the advice and pours accolades all over his lady love. He recites EXACTY what he told his brother just moments before, layering on a few extra tidbits like, “I’m so insanely and wildly in love with you.”

Then it starts snowing. So he takes her face and gently kisses the crap out of her.

Jason for the win.

THIRD HOMETOWN DATE
Blake
Bailey, Colorado

Blake stands in a gazebo and makes Becca run across a powdery field of snow for the obligatory Jump & Straddle (trademark pending.) Bless Becca’s oddball heart. She wears tiny little suede booties during a snow storm. Let the record show that I’m glad she wore pants, but was disappointed to see the shredded denim jeans. Someone get the girl a pair of Uggs and be done with it.

Blake takes Becca to his old high school. I fight my knee jerk reaction to roll my eyes back into my head because I figure Blake is probably two years out of high school and this makes sense that he’s still living out his old football glory days.

Then I remember he’s twenty-eight and give ocular permission to have at it.

Once again, I feel like the biggest door knob when Blake tells Becca that his high school helped shape him into the man he is today because during his senior year, a complete stranger came in and started shooting. A girl lost her life and since then, the community has been #BaileyStrong.

Becca knows now why Blake is so emotional and slightly immature and eager to feel all the feels. He understands that we are not promised tomorrow. It’s evident that he ticked up several notches in her fantasy suite counter.

Blake has one more surprise for Becca. I figure he’s about to take her under the bleachers, but instead he shoves her through some double doors into a packed auditorium where none other than P!nk is on stage to perform for these jokers!

Wait a minute. It’s not P!nk.

Take two.

He shoves her through some double doors into a packed auditorium where none other than Betty Who is on stage to perform for these jokers!

Betty Who?

Exactly. Betty Who.

Like Betty Who from Whoville? Distant cousin of Cindy Lou Who?

No.

via GIPHY

Have I heard of the singer Betty Who? No I have not. Did I think it was odd for her to bop around on a One Act Play stage with two backup dancers? Sure. Did Becca know every single lyric to both songs? Absolutely.

Betty Who cares if you don’t know Betty Who. The important thing to remember is that BECCA knows who Betty Who is and Blake may have just surpassed Jason in the coolest hometown date contest.

Blake’s parental meet-and-greet makes me nervous. As you recall, his mom cheated on the dad with his coach/English teacher. Using context clues from the participating adults on this date, my guess is that both parents AND their significant others were in the room. I’m sure it was awkward, but yay for trying to put broken pieces back together for the sake of the kid, his potential future wife, and my entertainment.

Blake’s mom isn’t feeling the timeline of this crazy journey. She wonders if her son will be ready to propose in a week. Also, his heart was smashed into a million pieces. It was ripped from his chest and she saw the result of the worst breakup in human history. The panic attacks. The divorce. The shooting. THE BREAKUP!!!

Am I the only one who doesn’t remember a thing about this awful breakup? Where have I been? On a scale of tragedies, was it like a Garrett-level ex-wife tragedy? Or just a normal girlfriend Jason tragedy?

Sorry, Colton. You don’t get to play this game.

His parents ask very good questions, which again, is weird for hometown dates. When Becca asks if Blake is over this phantom heartbreak enough to be ready to get down on one knee, they turn it right back around on her.

Who was the one who was engaged six months ago? Right! THE GIRL IN THE ROMPER.

With that said, Mom can see that Blake is head-over-heels in love and ready to settle down. I agree. Apart from the sinister look he gave the cheater coach, he was ooey gooey in love.

FOURTH HOMETOWN DATE
Colton
Parker, Colorado

Colton doesn’t waste any time going straight for the juggernaut of all hometown dates. He takes Becca to purchase gifts so they can deliver them to the children’s hospital for the kids in the cystic fibrosis wing.

Let me just say that the little girl patient was D-A-R-L-I-N-G. Colton’s shirt made of cheesecloth was not. All props to Becca for wearing pants in front of the kiddos.

Colton tells Becca that not just anyone gets to come home with him. Like his virginity, he’s protective of that part of his life. Becca understands and assures him that she’s 110-percent ready for the day.

Math is hard.

Colton’s entire extended family greets the prodigal son and Becca at the door. Each woman wore a cold shoulder blouse in honor of the show two seasons ago. There’s little Harper who whispers to Colton, “Is she your girlfriend?” and a sensible bundt cake on the table.

Mom and Dad have great questions. Dad wants to know how Becca is going to bounce back after Arie. He also asks if Becca knows about Tia.

Way to almost throw your kid under the bus, Dad.

Becca understands that Colton and Tia just hung out that one time (foreshadowing at its finest) and that she’s ready for marriage. Dad reads her like a book and says, “If it’s not my kid, let him go now so it won’t be as hard down the road.”

Meanwhile, Colton tells his mom that he’s a virgin and he wants to swipe his card with Becca in the fantasy suite. I’ve never yelled PINEAPPLE louder in my entire life. I spent the rest of the conversation behind a couch cushion. I’m getting hives now just typing that sentence. BLESS.

Multiply that by two thousand and you’ll understand my angst when Colton’s mom has the exact same conversation with Becca! She all but asked about certain positions and protection. I AM GOING TO DIE RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW.

GIRL BRUNCH

Caroline borrows Becca’s teeny tiny romper and passes out mimosas to the girls. Becca prattles on about why she loves each boy. Garrett has a tractor. Jason can kiss. Blake is sweet. And Colton is…

Tia raises her hand like she’s a student in school. Becca calls on her and Tia asks for a private audience with her bestie. Baby Becca and Kendall the taxidermist exhibit the appropriate “WHHAAAATTTT????” faces to really make the moment extra dramatic.

Get this: Tia wants Becca to know that “It makes me sick to my stomach that you got to meet his family.” PS: Tia still has feelings for Colton.

Methinks someone is still a little pissy that they didn’t get the coveted position of ABC’s next bachelorette.

Between trying to control her fly aways and digesting what Tia just said, Becca adopts a zen demeanor. She takes to the balcony to process through her feelings. She manages to forget to ask Tia how she can have feelings for someone who she’s known for a grand total of ten hours? Then she realizes Tia could ask the same of her. She doesn’t want a guy to come between her friendship with Tia, but darn it, she likes Colton so much. What’s a girl to do?

CALL OUR HOST CHRIS HARRISON!

Technically, someone did call Harrison, but it was sweet Colton who chatted up our host. Fantasy suites are looming and he wants to know what is expected of him since he’s a virgin.

Look, if anyone call walk Colton through the mechanics of the fantasy suite, it’s Harrison.

Our Host does a great job of explaining that “no means no” and he doesn’t have to do anything he doesn’t want to do. This seems to please Colton, so he skips to the rose ceremony room to stand with the three other guys who have very short pants.

Across town, Becca takes her rather large split in her dress for a walk at dusk. She sidles up next to the balcony, but it’s too tall for her to pull a Mesnick. Instead, she heads downstairs to tell the guys that she’s had amazing weeks with all of them.

At this point in the game, I took a quick poll of my viewing audience and we all thought someone different was going home. So when Blake’s name was called first, a roar erupted from the group. Jason’s name was next (we all knew he was safe) and Garrett’s was called last.

Poor Colton was sent packing. How many people on the production team do you think encouraged him to give Tia a call after he halfway cried in the rejection limo?

My guess is at least five.

And who’s ready for things to get hot in Thailand next week?

That’s a euphemism. The temperature is hot there. It has nothing to do with fantasy suites.

Or maybe that wording was a happy accident!

Part of me was wondering how much of a bonus Colton received for asking that insipid question about the suite. At that point, they knew he wasn’t sticking around for the big reveal in the suite, so they had to scramble to figure out how to get more out of the whole (overdone) virgin bit. Let’s just move on!

Maribeth
Maribeth

Besides which, be doesn’t talk about his virginity to just anyone. Which is exactly why he felt compelled to reveal this very private matter on NATIONAL TELEVISION!!

Helena
Helena

Maybe it’s just me but I honestly can’t stand Blake. Something about him feels so generic and phony.

Lisa
Lisa

Join the discussion…OH MY GOD yes finally! I thought it was just me!

Karen
Karen

I actually LOVE him. He’s so cute and articulate and just seems like a fantastic guy. He might be one of my all-time faves, actually. Is he fascinating tv? No, but he seems like a wonderful guy to me and I am totally buying what he’s selling. Love, love, LOVE him.

Dee
Dee

I’m actually a big fan of Blake and hope he’s the last man standing this season! He just seems like a very genuine, sensitive, fun, and sweet guy, and I think he’d make a great partner.

Norma
Norma

I am not on the Blake train at all!!!! I don’t know why, but he is my least favorite for this season. Has been since day one.

Tia is incredibly selfish and jealous and could not get past the fact that Becca actually got to meet his family. Clearly she did not when she was with Colton for what…all of 5 minutes when they “dated”?? She showed no class. I honestly do not feel she ruined Becca’s chances with Colton. Becca was never going to pick Colton. I’m team Garret or Jason.

Babs
Babs

I really like Blake and he was always my favorite until the last couple of weeks when Jason cane out of NO WHERE! I still like Blake and thought the Betty Who concert was genius if he really cane jo with that, but be still my heart Jason…love his smile

Karen
Karen

YES, with that SMILE. SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

NewMama
NewMama

Oh Helena, yes, yes, yes! My husband and I just cringe every time he talks. He seems fake (nice, maybe), but really hard to watch. Something about his inflection and facial expressions; I”m not buying it! Plus, he took her to his high school. Ugh…

Cassie
Cassie

In Blake’s defense – there is nothing else in Bailey to show her but his high school. It’s a tiny town trust me.

Kelli
Kelli

He could have taken her to Camp Idrahajee (or however you spell it). That’s the only other thing there.

Margaret
Margaret

or he could have gone to the Coney Island Hot Dog stand – a restaurant that is shaped like a giant hot dog.

Marty
Marty

I’m right there with you…so irritating!

Andrea
Andrea

I agree, and so insecure.

Lorraine
Lorraine

Poor Tia! She doesn’t have the manners or the class to not interfere with Becca’s choices! I’m appalled at what she did! And, Becca shouldn’t have listened to her! I have felt all along that Colten was the perfect guy for Becca! I know she will come to regret this decision in the future! Furthermore, Colten should be the next Bachelor! He’s too classy for that Bachelor in Paradise!

Andrea
Andrea

Is Tia going to paradise? Because maybe that was her plan, to have Colton join her there?

evangeline
evangeline

love this recap and all of them!
My question is, will Colton even want Tia knowing that she c*** blocked his relationship with Becca?? I think that was very selfish of her!!

Lorraine
Lorraine

I agree, she’s selfish and jealous and she can hardly contain herself!

tracee
tracee

Agree 100%. She had her chance to say something on the Spa Group Date and chose not to now she has to shut up. They went on a couple of dates and that was months ago. Pointless reveal …..only revealed how SMALL Tia is

KarenS
KarenS

I THINK there’s a goof in the posting… You’re talking about Jason’s date, but then there’s a paragraph when you say Garrett and his mom instead of Jason…

” Later that night, Garrett introduces Becca to his family. His mom, Dale, is a babe. I need to know her nighttime skin routine. She thinks Becca is the best because Becca is looking for “her person” and Garrett is looking for his person. He’s her lobster. She’s his lobster.”

BA77
BA77

Yes I noticed that too!

Kris

Jason. I really don’t like Garrett, didn’t before the racism revelations and those didn’t increase my affection! Blake is a nice guy but I think he’s awfully intense and would be very hard for Becca to take care of. I think Jason is wonderful and I very much hope she picks him! Really really odd that Tia did that, I think it’s a gambit for BIP….

Jen
Jen

I have been team Blake since the beginning but Jason has been a game changer! I thought he was sexy as hell last night and after internet stalking…. he is solid! A VP of a corporate investment company, played sports through college, has good friendships, good family. Keep that guy Becca!

Karen
Karen

Yes, Team Jason all the way!! As a Michigan girl, his hockey moves nearly did me in last night. HOT!! Also, he seems the most balanced by far and to have a lot in common with her. What a sleeper! I barely noticed him in the beginning but now I find myself really wanting her to pick him. I was surprised she picked him last night, but elated. Keep it going, Becca!!

Karen
Karen

I was team Blake in the beginning too, but there’s been something striking me as a bit odd about him lately. Not sure if it’s editing, but he seems intense and a bit needy. Also, does anyone else think the fact that producers have cut it to show us Becca actually proclaiming her love for him make anyone else believe that he will NOT be the final pick? Like ABC is trying to tee up the drama about her unexpectedly falling in love with another and then feeling like she’s betraying him, similar to Arie? Seems very contrived and transparent, ABC….

Sadie
Sadie

I bet you are right! I was thinking Blake would win. I always fall for their tricks.

Deebee

Agree that ABC is trying to trick us by making sure we hear, more than once, that Becca loves Blake. I like Blake but feel he really still struggles because he experienced some nasty stuff in his teens. For me it’s between Jason and Garrett and I’m thinking Garrett may be last man standing.

deelyla
deelyla

I’m sure you are correct Karen. It’s all in the editing!! #teamJason (who came out of nowhere)

Karen
Karen

I really, really like Jason as well. He’s seems like a great guy and super fun! If he doesn’t win, I could totally see him being the next Bachelor!

Kris

I thought of that too…. Jason would make an excellent Bachelor. That would certainly take the sting away if Becca chooses one of the others! But she really shouldn’t.

Karen
Karen

Apart from the blatantly offensive social media activity, something does not totally sit right with me for Garrett. Maybe it’s the 2 month marriage thing. I’m skeptical when someone describes a divorce situation as so one-sided. Run from the red flags, Becca!!

Helena
Helena

I agree. Something is very “off” about Garrett. He talks like he’s reading lines off a script, and all the stuff about his supposedly evil ex is…suspicious to say the least.

deelyla
deelyla

It does seem suspicious Karen but I wonder why she isn’t blasting him all over social media? I’m sure the ex has something to say about all this.

Vandy Gagliardo
Vandy Gagliardo

Whenever people mention that Garrett is wrong to talk about his ex-wife in a negative way…I am hurt and reminded of my own short marriage. I married a man who I thought was fantastic. During the engagement, I saw small clues that he could get loud when he talked about things he was passionate about. Minutes after we were married he started being verbally and emotionally abusive, calling me names, putting me down, making me feel that everything in the world was my fault. He had bad anger issues and I know that I did nothing to deserve it. It was a one-sided reason for our divorce. This does happen and I believe that’s how it happened for him.

Cassie
Cassie

I can totally relate Vandy – thanks for sharing.

Dee
Dee

Vandy, I totally hear what you’re saying and am so sorry your relationship worked out that way! To hide who you really are from your fiancee until you marry is awful and COMPLETELY unfair. However, I also believe that Garrett’s situation is different from yours in that he has stated that he already knew these negative things about his ex-wife and her anger issues, etc. going into their marriage and he said he thought he could “change her.” All we know is that from Garrett’s point of view, his ex-wife is 100% the villain. I’m just guessing his ex-wife might have a different way of seeing things, and his description of that relationship seems suspiciously one-sided.

Sadie
Sadie

Agree that Jason seems nice and normal and has impressive kissing moves. He has come a long way since Becca forgot his name at the spa date. I like Blake too, he just looks like such a baby. Hoping Becca picks up on Garrett trying to paint his ex as crazy and manipulative and not taking any ownership. He needs to go to Taylor for emotional intelligence lessons.

Yesi
Yesi

Jason is TOTAL husband material, yum!

Allison
Allison

I found myself wondering if the producers paid Tia to create the drama, or because they wanted to send them both to Paradise or something like that. And that romper, OMG Becca no!!! Terrible, terrible wardrobe choice!! Blake comes across to me as somewhat exhausting, like he’s trying to hard. Likeable, nice, and needs to just chill. I don’t think she’ll pick him. I think it will be Jason or Garrett.

MeM
MeM

I thought while watching it was a producer move to give Becca an out so it didn’t look as if she was dropping Colton because of his inexperience. But you are right–it’s way more likely they are trying to generate BIP viewers. Blegh! Most boring season ever. Even the mock drama is boring! Thank goodness for Lincee’s recaps!

Julie Epsteen
Julie Epsteen

Yes. I thought this same sort of thing. I thought the producers had Tia create this drama so Becca could let Colton go without it being about his virginity. But then again, so what if it was about his virginity and lack of experience. It seemed staged and weird that Tia would even care about Colton after all that time and then when Colton asked about the fantasy suite it was like, “What the heck is going on?” I just knew he was going home based on the Tia thing alone. Why do I even watch this stupid show??? Oh. For Lincee of course. Der.

deelyla
deelyla

Good point Allison! They might see this a score for another BIP romance!

Cassie
Cassie

Why would Tia even think Colton would be interested when he’s come so far on Becca’s season? She’s gonna feel foolish when she watches Colton tell Becca he’s falling in love with her. It just seems the whole story line is a ploy. I really think Tia thought she’d be The Bachelorette and Colton thought he was real smooth and smart charming her before filming. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had some sort of deal with her to carry him through even if she wasn’t interested just so he could get another 15 minutes of fame. The whole plan blew up when Becca was chosen. Just watch, Colton is NOT who he says he is.

Shannon Thomas
Shannon Thomas

I bet $1 million that Colton is the next bachelor and tia get a on the season. I think he would be a good bachelor, but Blech. So sick of tia

Babs
Babs

I hope not! I don’t want to see Colton as the next Bachelor at all. Something does not add up with him. The whole thing where he asked out gymnast Aly Raisman so publicity and then communicated with Tia before the show (did he think maybe she was going to be the next Bachelorette)? I just wonder if his main objective is to get exposure. Maybe it is and it’s for his charity, but even so it’s off putting to me. I’d much rather see Jason.

Karen
Karen

Jason for bachelor! Colton seems nice but he’s too vanilla to carry a show. Pretty sure they’ll put him on Paradise with Tia.

KarenS
KarenS

He was on the Almost Famous Podcast last night, and apparently Tia reached out to HIM first, not the other way around.

The producers contacted the guys who were likely going to be cast, and asked them to list their top 3 girls from a photo array (he admitted this was shallow), and he picked Tia, Becca, and Lauren as his top 3 choices. He followed them each on instagram, and Tia was the only one to follow back, and then they got to talking because she DM’ed him about something in his story. The Aly Raisman thing does come across as a looking for fame angle though…

BeccaCali
BeccaCali

I listened to that also and was shocked that he threw her under the bus so decisively. It did confirm my feelings that she was way more into him than he ever was. Classic story of the friend that everyone loves (Becca, Raven), and the hard luck friend. I do hope Tia also goes to counseling like Blake and gets her self esteem back. She’s a catch but just doesn’t believe in herself and that comes through in her eyes.

Dee
Dee

Ugh, hope that Colton is NOT the next bachelor. Something about him screams “fame-hungry” and fake. He has never seemed all that into Becca in the first place, but more like he is trying to play a role so he could last up until the final few contestants on this season. It really seems like he is jonesing to try to get that role as the next bachelor, but I’m totally not into it! Wouldn’t mind Jason as next bachelor, though . . . And hoping that it’s Blake for the win this season!

Deb
Deb

No to Colton! I’m sorry but any man who is a virgin at his age is completely weird. What’s with that? Especially being good looking and all… He certainly is cute and dresses well but I don’t have a good feeling about him.

Joobee
Joobee

Blake triggers all my “probably too needy” red flags, so I am afraid Becca would wind up taking care of him.

I am so team Jason. HOT. He has a real job (I’m in the same industry, and it’s awesome), a neat family and a sense of humor. Yes please.
He flew under the radar for a while, sort of like Catherine on Sean lowe’s season. I’m hoping he’s the one.

My favorite section of this was the part about Betty Who. I nearly died at my desk.
Great recap!!

Shelley
Shelley

Never warmed up to Colton. So thirsty. Naturally he’ll be on BIP, as will Tia. I was glad to see him go, no matter what her reason was. I’ve always thought Blake was adorable, but that Jason is really growing on me. Meh on Garrett. No matter how horrid she might have been, throwing his former wife under the bus over and over and over is not cool.

Judy
Judy

You just said what I have been saying all along. There are two sides to every divorce and we are only hearing one side. But enough already! Let it go …….along with talk of Arie and Colton’s virginity.

MeM
MeM

Garrett never says anything of substance. It’s like he’s reading the inside of knockoff Hallmark cards to her. And she falls for it! Blake seems as if he at least is emotionally available. (Though I wonder if the relationship would be ALL ABOUT HIM and not them.) I don’t think she’ll pick Jason, but he’s likeable enough.

Cindy S
Cindy S

That bundt cake was from Nothing Bundt Cakes. They are delicious. And once again NO ONE appeared to eat. There were full plates of food every time someone got up to have a talk. One of the plates looked like it had a yummy steak on it.

Team Jason!

Deb
Deb

Maybe they eat after they leave! In the old days they spent way more time at the dinner table and with more family members. This is the first time for a while there hasn’t been a weird family member or craziness. I like both Blake and Jason.

Liana
Liana

I hope she doesn’t pick Jason because I want him to be the next Bachelor!! Team Jason for Bachelor all the way!

Lorraine
Lorraine

I agree Jason was very charming and cute last night. Never really noticed him before that, but now that Colten is gone, I’m all in for Team Jason!

DonnaMarie
DonnaMarie

Totally agree with you, Liana! Jason way too good for Becca, and needs to find a great, genuine girl! Not Becca, who doesn’t have the good sense to wear something that covers her ass when meeting the parents!? I think Jason is perfect. I love his hair and don’t ever think it looks greasy as Lincee thinks (sorry Lincee). He reminds me of a young Andy Garcia with that hair! Yum!!

Liana
Liana

Yes, I have noticed the likeness to a young Andy Garcia (who is still very hot by the way). Liked Jason’s family the best. Fingers crossed he is our next Bachelor.

Cassie
Cassie

I think Jason would be great as the next Bachelor!!!

Rosa
Rosa

TEAM JASON!! He HAS to be the next Bachelor if she doesn’t pick him!! He is H-O-T and seems well rounded and seems like a good guy. Not feeling it w/ Blake. He’s boring. Colton was boring too and based on his IG feed, he is taking all the publicity he can get – for his charity? Not sure. I like Garrett – he seems fun and I do think his family backed up his story on the ex wife – but agree they shouldn’t be slamming her like they are. They are making too much of that story – who cares!? Not sure if his bubbly personality would get old? Like can he chill and have a normal conversation? Lastly, TEAM JASON!!!!

The whole Betty Who recap was hysterical!! I swear I thought it was a middle aged, sort of out of shape, Pink!! And I missed the romper – gotta go back and re-watch that! I did notice the J & S on every date.

Rosa
Rosa

PS I am over TIA!!!!!!!!!!!! I never liked her! That whole reunion last night seemed strange and planted!! Caroline need not wear a romper either!

Patrick

Double post.

Kate
Kate

I don’t know if I am reading too much into things, but do you think there is a chance that Colton is a virgin? I’m just not sure, but my intuition is telling me that might be the case!!

Oh well, I guess we will never know, unless he goes on BIP!

Tasha
Tasha

I’ve never bought the Colton is a virgin thing. Not even for a minute. I’m not sure why but….really? The only reason I might believe it is if he isn’t surely the girl(s) would have come forward by now for their 15 minutes of fame, without a doubt.

Karen

I don’t think he’s lying. You know if he was, that these girls would have come out of the woodwork proclaiming that they slept with him and sold some stories to the tabloids by now. He talked about it on Ben & Ashley I’s podcast that night as well. There’s no one claiming he’s lying. I really think it’s for real. However, he did clearly lie when he said that he’s never brought a girl home to meet his fam. There are a bunch of pics of him with Aly Raisman at Christmas some other events with his family, so that’s just a weird thing to lie about.
