    Bachelor in Paradise 6: Speculation and Spoilers

    I have no problem with HG doing what she is doing--it is BIP. The point I wanted to make was that I don't see her as being pushed around or manipulated. She is doing what she wants to do. Just don't act like it is beyond your control. I don't want to re-adjudicate the Bachelorette but I think that what people objected to in Luke was not his thinking that if HB slept with someone else then he didn't want to marry her. It was his thinking that she should agree with him that she shouldn't have done it and that he had to forgive her. Plus a certain naivete about going on a show where that happens so much. ps. not to mention the fact that they have only been there about 3 days and the notion that any of them have found true love seems pretty silly.

    Bachelor in Paradise 6: Speculation and Spoilers

    I'm not sure what makes it look like HG is either being manipulated or doing what other people tell her to do. She has successfully worked things so several of the men are chasing after her, showering her with attention, and feeling that she has been "mean girled" when someone points out that she has agency. Looks to me like she is in control of her situation.

    To be fair, that was Raven, not Tia. I can't believe that the two of you have made me remember Tia and Raven. Now I have to wash my brain out with soap.

    Yes but that was a producer and was during filming. If they eliminated everyone who might be with someone else from BIP it would have to be Bachelor in Paradise: this year with no contestants!

    Rules are different on BIP. On the mothership you are supposed to be seeking true love. Here you are getting a beach vacation and if something unusual happens you fall in love and have children in the closet. The producers had to know about the Blake business. Yet they had them all come on. I don’t think that would be possible on the mothership. i also doubt that Haley thought they weren’t exclusive.

    Well Arie was on House Hunters International 😎

    What would make anyone buy something because some former bachelor/ette contestant shilled for it? None of it makes any sense. If you allow yourself to ask questions that demand rational answers with this franchise your head will explode.

    The ending was obviously set up (why else would they wait to bring Tyler out till the end) but I think it is very possible that they both want to see what might develop. She got all caught up in the drama with Luke and then Jed checked a lot of boxes and as someone said upthread she seemed genuinely surprised when she realized that she might be able to see herself with Tyler since he wasn't what she considers her type. But I am not sure it matters much. the whole thing has jumped the shark. Maybe the will have CAM as the next bachelor just so we know they know it is a joke now.

    Maybe Tyler just wants his fantasy suite.

    S01.E01: Pilot

    It’s not as if he hasn’t been known to fire weapons while flying in the batwing or bringing down buildings for example. Maybe it is unfair to assume that somewhere in these cases people were killed. But i have always taken his claims a bit like the Federation’s Prime Directive. Also i guess it depends on what medium we are talking about. Deliberately Leaving Ra’s in a train about to crash into a building in Batman Begins seems a bit of a gray area to me.

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    I suspect that they are setting up Peter but since the new “most dramatic introduction” process seems to be to announce the next bachelor after BIP they may wait to see how Mike does.

    Well that was 7200 seconds I’ll never get back—especially when counting them down was the most interesting thing in the episode. Both Hannah and Jed looked like middle schoolers whose parents told them they had to do their homework when they were reflecting on the unreasonable expectations that Hannah’s dad had about Jed supporting himself. It really is unfair that they can’t go to the movies on Tuesday night just because Wednesday is a school day. But couldn’t we have more shots of her saying that she was anxious. They could have made it 3 hours long if they had really milked that theme instead of passing it by after only 100 times.

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    Don’t you mean tomorrow’s the night? I assume that we will get 60 minutes of commercials, 45 minutes of final two visits, and 15 minutes of random pablum.

    I’m a bit surprised you didn’t mention Maura who seems to be pretty bad—worse on my watching than Amber. I think that when Curtis chose her over Francesca it was all downhill. But i never saw earlier seasons so i have nothing to compare it to.
