    S15.E07: Week 7: Latvia

    Finally watching show. Only to Peter's date. Watching Luke talk to Hannah after the group date, he actually came across as real and at the time not controlling. Yeah he said some things, but it was all stated as HIS feelings, and what he felt. He even got her to empathize when starting out by asking if she ever had been cheated on. At this sit down, it come across as over controlling and psycho. Watching Hannah's smack down. I think Luke is just an , idiot and really has no clue how he is coming across. I do see him trying, and when talking about the bungee jump, it was all stated as his feelings and how what they did on the date made him feel. Yes, there were other things he said (her body shouldn't touch anothers till marriage and stuff like that) Still don't him though, but I can see him trying. I don't see anywhere near the connection with him that she has with Jed and Tyler. She leans into them, never leans into Luke. I think Luke did try with Garret to get him to drop it and not bring it up at the rose ceremony. Garrett is the one being a bitch here. I've only watched since JoJo, but I don't recall EVER seeing producers manipulate the players so much. I have no doubt that THEY cancelled the cocktail party, not Hannah - or they talked her into it. THEY brought Luke back after she kicked him to the curb, THEY gave Tyler the flowers (he has no money, duh), THEY set up these dates (and I have no doubt they talked her into Garrett for this one knowing it would poke all Lukes buttons), THEY sent Jed to Hannah's room. On and On. Tyler is definitley the stand out so far. And she is WAY into him. OOO, I swear I just heard the white bootee whisper something like "don't apologize, I know you had to." She couldn't even look Luke in the eye after giving him the rose and their hug was perfuctory at best. I don't get how this all lines up with what we saw in the previews for later in the season (her climbing on him)

    Jade.Black, your last paragraph was exactly what I was thinking. "Do you like macaroni & Cheese or spaghetti...." He should have said, "Spaghetti" and than laughed. I really think Luke has always been the alpha and never been around other confident males. He has no idea how to deal with it. Also, I think he's just an idiot and not an evil manipulator. I believe he has no clue that he isn't giving her what she wants, he honestly thinks he's answering her questions. She is totally thinking with her Vajayjay. I disagree with what someone said above, I feel she has got some in depth conversations from at least 2 of her leads. Jed was up front with her and Tyler talked her off a ledge and distracted her by being funny. The 3 leaders seem to actually each have brains, they use words with syllables and don't just constantly complement her.

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    Technically, wasn't Hannah's first impression rose the guy on AFTR?

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    After reading all the specs and spoilers, my one hope for Tyrion is that Varys seems to trust him. Varys appears to be the best judge of character on this show...but who knows. And why would Cersei all of a sudden trust Tyrion to help her out? For 7 seasons she's hated him and mistrusted him, blamed him for every bad thing that happened. Why is there still a Stag over Kings Landing? Cersei crowned herself under the Lannister name, there should be a lion. Last question for now, why is anyone going to believe Bran and Sam? A weird emo teen, and a man who has broken his oaths to the Nights Watch, his family and the citadel.

    Season 15: Speculation and Spoilers

    If Hannah brings any of them to Tuscaloosa it could be interesting, March - May is prime tornado season. I will get totally sick of "roll tide" though.

    S23.E12: After the Final Rose

    Please, please, please, please, let them give her some speech lessons before filming starts in 3 days. She is not showing that she thinks to quick on her feet very well, and the lead needs to be able to do that. Okay....first guy was cute and said the right things.

    S23.E12: After the Final Rose

    Her smile looks genuine. I hope they really do take it slow, just date and not pretend engage(which is what the couples who make it really do even though they are "engaged). Saw an interview with Becca and Garrett, and they were honest in saying they were just taking things as they come and learning about each other, so doing what they should. I think they look more genuine than Arie and whats her name did.

    S23.E12: After the Final Rose

    I thought that she looked genuinely happy when he said he dumped the other two. And she thought him jumping and running away was hilarious. They have to be together 2 years to keep ring. She only said "i don't know" once, but she did say "like" every other word. She needs to tell his family what her dad told her and get another view besides "love at first site"

    When she got in the van, Hannah sincerely seemed to care for him.

    Dammit....MrRipley needed to talk to me right when he went to go talk to Tayshia and I missed all of it. You could hear his heart beating?

    They're going to lo-jack the lead from here on out. I have to say, this is actuallyl pretty dramatic for Bachelor nation. Gotta add, i kinda like Nicks Halo commercial

    S23.E09: Week 9

    I just don't get the vibe that Cassie is into him at all. He definitely is way into her, she seems to be biding time.

    S23.E08: Week 8: Hometown Dates

    Has a lead ever told all his finals that he was falling in love with them? I thought that was taboo - especially after JoJo's dude told her and his final (was that Ben - I started watching on Jo's season) that he loved both of them. Hannah's Mom is VERY southern/Alabama stereotype mom. I'm an Alabama transplant, and those Mom's who were born and raised here are VERY protective and attached to their daughters.

    Big tooth Hannah warned him to be careful and said something along the lines that someone still there needs to be dumped.
