    Someone should introduce Donald Trump’s handlers to Tyler’s handlers. They could impart some wisdom about when to just STFU.

    S15.E13: Week 11: Finale Part 2

    I have been in a loving and committed relationship with “my person” (tm Bachelor Nation) for 26 years, 20 of them being married. I don’t think he has ever once told me he “cherishes” me or that I “mean the world to him.” These final three guys used that terminology SO many times and it sounds so incredibly fake and forced. I don’t believe for one second any of them loved her beyond anything deeper than a superficial, surface “love.”

    What does that mean?

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    I totally agree. Tyler seems completely over it to me and is doing his required postmortem. He is 100% unimpressed with the whole bachelor vibe, and seems almost embarrassed at still being a part of it. When she said she loves bold moves, the typical Bachelor Nation script would have him grab her and dip her back for a passionate kiss. Instead he’s all, “Sure, we can get a drink. Whatevs.” I’ve been watching him and his buds on Instagram and he is way more into what he’s doing with the charity food gig. Those videos of him in the car with his hot friend are golden. I would love to hang with him and his boys. What a fun gang.

    S15.E11: The Men Tell All

    She’s a child throwing around bad words to make mom and dad sit up and take notice. When she’s in one of her angry, manic states it’s “f$&k this” and “f$&k that” but when she’s more excited and pleasant, it’s “what the crap!” Same with her hair whipping and straddling of boys when she’s in an emotional state and then chaste pecks and beaming smiles when she’s chill. Such an interesting personality study.

    S15.E10: Week 10

    For a minute there I was sure we had gone back in time and you were talking about Cassie. ;) I'm totally overquoting here, but I couldn't let the moment pass and fail to quote what is now my new favorite descriptor...derpy demeanor. I know we've moved on, but I agree with you. I think part of the weariness comes from the two seasons in a row of the overtly Christian content, specifically related to the approach to sex. Oh lord, the baseball butt. My 14 year old is a ballplayer with the protoypical baseball body and adorable dimples and I am weary already of the female attention he generates. Two words...Harvey Specter.

    Who was that great recapper? I would C&P her entire 10 page recaps of TB and Survivor and print them out to read on the train on my way to work when I was in my late 20s. Good memories. 🙂

    Old Peter looks like George W. Bush.

    What was most neat to watch about Trista’s season the second time around was knowing the outcome and knowing what a wonderful family they are, 15 years later. You definitely could see a real love story unfold.

    I wouldn’t hold your breath. While you’re waiting, however, you might want to go over to Tubi and re-watch Trista’s season. Short, sweet, to the point, and girl handled her business like an adult. That 45 second moment while she sat there expectantly waiting for poor Peter to birth out his “I love you” told me everything I needed to know about this shrew. The biggest competitor in all of this isn’t one of the men, it’s Hannah.

    He reminds me of someone who has recently been recruited Into a skincare or cleaning products MLM company and is constantly spouting all of the woo “this is my why” bullshit and asking you to buy their moisturizer or clean your toilets with their microfiber cloth.

    Don’t get too excited for HannahG to be your perfect Bachelorette—she’s heading to BIP and will certainly find all goodwill she has extended to viewers unraveled there.

    S15.E09: Week 9: Hometown Dates

    I’m in Nashville this weekend staying at the Gaylord and there was this dude singing in the hotel bar last night that looked just like an older, heavier version of Jed. Now I’m wondering if the magic of TV made Jed look younger and thinner and it really WAS him that I saw in person...

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    I honestly think she realized partway through the season that she didn’t want to end this all with a real fiancé. I think she is a girl who has led a relatively sheltered life, with few boyfriends, and once she started getting all of the male attention, realized that she actually is a hot number and has some good dating years left. I keep thinking back to that weird filler episode where CH basically talked her into staying. I think that’s why she kept Luke and Jed as long as she did, and why she never gave herself fully to some of those truly great guys like Mike, Tyler, and Peter. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if she knew all of Jed’s shit before the final episode was filmed and he was her cover. Get engaged, shit comes out, break the engagement, and Jed gets his own notoriety. Any press is good press, right? I think they were in on it together.

    Hannah reminds me of the group of people I hung out with in high school back in the 90s. We were all “Christians” who’d go to weekly Young Life meetings where we’d sing peppy songs about Jesus for an hour, listen to a preachy homily about purity from a creepy 30-year-old youth minister, and then go make out with cute boys in trucks in the Dairy Queen parking lot until our 10:30 curfews. We were so very special and clueless.
