S15.E01: Week 1

Recommended Posts

When Luke (insert correct initial here) went out to see how Hannah was doing after the Scott fiasco, she kept saying she was cold.  Give her your damn jacket!  Then he gets the first impression rose.  SMH

Somebody is half Asian.  They showed his Asian mother and white father on screen.  I was only sort of watching but I believe I am correct on this.

Yes, this is very typical.  This show pretends that Asian people don't exist.

There was another half Asian guy on a recent season, maybe Becca's season.  He was very tall, smart, kind of nerdy and he made it on Bachelor on Paradise as well.

I see nothing wrong with you getting a chuckle if you don’t like Andi and are amused that her life isn’t going well. But I don’t thing singlehood or couplehood is a measure of success or happiness. 

It is a measure of success in Bachelor-world, as finding a lifetime partner is what this whole enterprise is about.

It's Andi's beyotchy attitude I didn't like.  I was happy for Desiree, Jillian, etc.  Andi?  Notsomuch.

Holding out how I feel about Hannah. The southern twang and big smile gets to me after a while. 

Some good guys - Dylan in the white tux: Connor the asian guy; Peter the pilot. 

I think Tyler the dancing contractor will annoy. Luke is Colton 2.0 but a reformed player. I kind of wish she had kept country Matt because while cheesy he had an interesting life story.

Steely Dan is where I learned they call Alabama the Crimson Tide.  They didn't mention rolling it, though.

Interesting choice of name for a (men's) football team.

Better than singling out a women's team for that name, though.

For the poster who said the men's sculpted eyebrows were distracting, this is on Box King Joe's ABC bio:

"Joe's most complimented features are his eyebrows."

This show has so many repeating drahmatic scenes, they should make everyone wear the same outfits, like the Cartwrights on Bonanza, so they can use the same footage season after season and save on cost.

I wish someone told chasen to wear his uniform---even thought everyone would have loved it, it would have changed the outcome I think.

Chasen was not only easy on the eyes, but he told Hannah that he was a Pilot.  And yet, she let him go and kept unemployed Jed; Matt, the Car Bid Spotter and Tyler C., the Dancing Contractor. What the heck was she thinking?  Based on her decision making skills, this season should be interesting.

Not alone. I'll wager my life savings that it was all a producer set up, and Hannah's speech to him was scripted too. As was her "breaking up" and crying afterward. Geesh. Give me a break on those theatrics. And the two women in the fake "spy van" was such a (laughable and fakety fake) Hollywood cliché. "It's the Most Drahmatic Season EVAH!"

My vote is that it wasn't her decision. TPTB tell her who to keep for future drahmah. Always gotta have a villain and resident dickweed.

If Chasen had worn his pilot uniform, Hannah would not have been able to tell him from that other pilot, the one who did wear his uniform.

But the only two bachelorettes That I’ve seen that I couldn’t stand were Rachel and Andi

I despised Rachel, Andi, Ali and DeAnna. 

I always am sad when the only African American Bachelorette EVER always manages to be on viewers' Most Hated List ...  She did a fine job and had to deal with the pressure of "Look! Ratings dropped!"  "You're a lawyer but you better not act too confident."   Just like how Michelle Obama has ended up on Most Hated Lists, despite working her az off.  Lawyers SHOULD be assertive and confident.

I'm in the minority, but I loved Emily, Andi and Rachel.  To me, the best Bachelorettes to date.  Accomplished, confident, secure and never too over-emotional about what these guys actually were to them.  Basically strangers that they were attracted to and wanted to get to know better.  No life-or-death attitudes, pretty pragmatic and logical about the whole thing.  

I like Hannah so far, I hope she remembers it's just a TV show and not the narrative of her entire life.

I LOVE an assertive and confident woman. I disliked Rachel because she clearly loved Peter but couldn't browbeat him into saying he loved her and would marry her so she chose the other one. 

Also, by the way, if the other guy was the one all along then why did she put so much pressure on Peter?

It's just a TV show that's also the stepping stone to DWTS and/or BIP and Jimmy Kimmel's show and getting the paps to film/talk to you for coverage on TMZ, or maybe her own reality show and more SM followers or a D-list table at the best LA restaurant or the cover of People or a topic on The View or ... well, any of those things that I'll bet she hopes will make up the rest of her life.

No, please don't ruin the term "JPJ"!  That is the affectionate nickname of the University of Virginia's John Paul Jones arena.  And with JPJ being the home of the men's basketball team, which won the NCAA basketball tournament this year for the very first time (!!!), I don't want a douche-wagon to spoil that by association!

Well, didn’t John Paul Jones already ruin the John Paul Jones Arena for you then? Maybe that’s why everyone must call him John Paul Jones? Is he like a one-percenter family that we’re all supposed to know? Oh, of the Virginia John Paul Joneses, but of course!

I think I’m officially obsessed with trying to figure out John Paul Jones’s deal. It’s like the SNL David S. Pumpkins skit—he’s in my head! What’s his deal? I’m John Paul Jones! That’s my thing, man!

Venmo John did great on BIP; he was the one who decided to leave behind all the girls who wanted him.  I'd have wanted him!

I must be in the minority, but I adored Rachel.  I thought she was beautiful inside & out, intelligent, thoughtful, and she's still with Brian, so she obviously was serious about finding her forever.

With Rachel, I never thought of her as the "African American Bachelorette", but just a beautiful, intelligent girl, searching for her forever.  While I love that someone finally blazed the trail of being the first, with Rachel, I thought she was just such a doll, and I rooted for her all the way.  I still smile when I see her with Brian today, and I hope we see Bachelorette babies from them one day (they'll be stunning).

Hannah is making me forget her "pageant girl" persona as she, too, is showing that she's looking for her forever.  Who knows, maybe a lot of this is scripted, but I like what I see so far.

How old is Hannah supposed to be? She looks like she is 29 or 30.  I know the guys think she's stunning, but I am just not seeing it.  She is definitely not ugly, but she just looks odd....maybe it's her teeth?

Nevertheless, she seems sweet and she stood up to Scott (the guy with the girlfriend).  I just find it odd that she would waste so much time on him.  Her goal is to find a husband, so why waste more than 1 minute on that Scott guy? She may have sent her "future husband" home simply because she didn't get a chance to speak to him.

My dad had a nice cousin named John Paul Jones.  This turd is gonna ruin some good memories.

In reference to past B'ettes, there have been different reasons for me to like, and occasionally dislike, them.  Jillian's my favorite because she was confident and fun - the viewers and the men had a good time.  She really knew how to balance romantic interest with being just one of the guys when appropriate.  Emily was fun to watch because she knew how to handle the men, but I didn't particularly like her.  I liked Ashley and Des, but they didn't have enough confidence.  Deanna was a mess but hilarious with her drama ("Ya broke mah heaaarrrrt!") Jen was boring and seemed like a cold fish.  Andi was another cold fish, but not as boring - just unpleasant.  Ali was hard to watch, too emotional without enough fun - although she seems pretty cool now.  Kaitlin's season was a hot mess, but I still don't know how much of that was her, or the lousy guys, or production.  I missed part of Rachel's season but I kind of liked what I saw.  Missed Trista, who seems nice, and JoJo, who bored the hell out of me on whatever Bachelor's season she was on so I didn't want to see more of her.  If I missed anyone, they weren't memorable enough!  Oh, Becca - well, there ya go.

The more that I think about it, the more I think that it is very creepy that Bachelor/Bachelorette only lets half-Asian people on the show and never somebody 100% Asian.  I actually thought Britt Nilsson was half-Asian, but my error, she is part Cherokee Indian.

I never saw Jillian's season, but I'm obsessed with Love it or List it Vancouver, which she hosts.  I love her and her style.

It never even crossed his mind to give her his jacket even after she said she was cold twice.That’s what really bothered me. Yikes, it wasn’t his first nor his second response to give her his jacket. Instead he talked about how he would never do that (what Scott did) - yeah, but you didn’t give her your jacket. If you cared about her you would have responded to her basic need for warmth (she had bare shoulders and arms, he was in a dress shirt, tie and suit jacket) I’m sure any guy  in the mansion would look for a reason to take of his jacket seeing as they had been wearing them for quite some time.

The fact that it didn’t even cross his mind - wow he sucks. I live about 20 minutes from his hometown - wonder what reception he’ll get when he gets kicked to the curb (if he doesn’t....) 

Any young boy with proper manners would taken off his jacket and given it to the girl...

Hey I've missed you guys! Love the hilarious and clever comments so far!

I agree - Scott was a definite plant. I went back and watched his initial convo with Hannah. Deer in the headlights awkward. Also - not hot. Goodbye.

I'm looking forward to Grant (profession "unemployed") bringing the humour. He's the sausage party mustard guy with the wry smile. Not overly hot but I hope she keeps him around a while.

Tyler G has very intense eyebrows, yikes!

John PJ is an agressive hugger and what's up with the scrunchy faced scowly eyes!? I agree with the poster above - producer plant 2.0.

Connor S with the vocal fry, got the 1st kiss. Not sure if he's a true romantic or slick.

Connor J had a lot of gimmicks...spoke french, did the tiara (did he bring that with him?), and the junk in the trunk. Ew. Was he the motivational car sales guy?

Luke P (found God in the shower - snort!) has some Jake Gyllenhaal characteristics to me.

I wonder if Matthew is maybe a bit sexist? He did that thing where he held her hands and raised her arms above her head so he could 'get a good look at her top to bottom'. Maybe he's really nice, but I wouldn't like that if someone did that to me. 😒

No-one particularly drool-worthy imo, but hopefully interesting. Buckle up for the testosterone flashes... which always make me laugh!

Hannah is much better than I expected. Can they get camera #2 on Caelyn now please? I picture her purple with apoplexy. 😏

I thought Demi was quite restrained. Lol

Looking forward to the season and checking in here. 😃

I really liked Hannah! I'm excited for her season. She has a personality and I personally think she's gorgeous and looked fantastic in her dress last night. It's been a long time since I actively liked a Bachelorette, so this will be fun.

My favorites so far are Mike (although my friend and I couldn't get over his sculpted eyebrows- why do they look like that??) and the young, tall guy she kissed (they were cute together). There's one guy that kind of looks like Jef Holm who I found attractive. This is probably the first season I've struggled so much to remember the guys, hopefully more of them click next week!

The enthusiasm Box Guy Joe showed for boxes in his intro clip cracked me up.

Ah I felt horrible for poor Chasen, the cute pilot, who came out and gave her a paper airplane only to be followed by Peter the pilot who busts out of the limo in his uniform like a damn superhero. Hilarious but I was hoping Chasen would still get a rose. I fear if I was on this show I would hand out a lot of pity roses for the first few weeks as well (like to sweet Matt Donald).

I hated Luke, and his intro package was so amusingly cheesy. It looks like he may come out as one of the villains of the season though which I can only hope for, as (assuming Hannah doesn't choose him) it would also break the cycle of Bachelorettes picking their first impression rose as their final guy.

That one guy who met Hannah on the after show (other Luke maybe?) looks like an early draft rendering of Nick Viall. The Windows 2000 version of Nick Viall before graphics improved.

So I did think Scott was an ass and no great loss, but... is it really so bad if you've got someone you were casually hooking up with before this show? I mean, let's say this girl didn't consider the relationship to be serious, and he wasn't actually planning on dating her at any point. So what if you were still screwing around with someone when you hadn't even met Hannah yet? I guess I just didn't see it as a huge deal. Didn't Arie break up with his girlfriend like a week before his Bachelor season started filming?

It matters to me as a subjective personal opinion of caring about representation and diversity.  Historically this has always been a very white show.  The show has the choice to make a lead non-white once in a while, but it's clear that they are not interested in doing so.  1 or 2 non-white leads in 38 total seasons is way too few and far between, for my personal preferences.  It doesn't really matter whether non-white people apply for the show or not, because the show can certainly pick leads from the Top 4-6 rejected contestants from every season, for instance Tayshia or Wills.  It's nice that there are 1 or 2 half-Asian people sprinkled into each season, I guess, but it would be a lot more non-white representation if a non-white lead was cast more frequently, which might lead to more diverse representation overall.

Tayshia and Wills were a lot more TV-ready than Hannah, in my opinion, in that they're both confident and can easily carry on conversation.  Hannah was completely insecure, awkward, and involved in a lot of conflict on her season.  Yet, the Bachelor franchise sees HANNAH as more TV ready than Tayshia, which shows you their interests in how they cast.  I just can't believe it's 2019 and the franchise is still doing the exact same thing they always have, without any willingness to progress or evolve.

I agree.  Rachel and Des are my two favorites and they are both still with their "number two" picks.  I thought Peter was Rachel's Brooks.  Those two guys were both introspective, handsome guys, who always seemed slightly unobtainable.  I think Rachel and Des were sort of lost in romantic dreams of those two men, but once they woke up to reality that it was just a fantasy on their part,  they turned and saw the real guy who had been devoted to them all along.  I think their stories were sincere and just what I watch for (besides the snark.)

My husband has committed himself to watching the Bachelorette with me* this season solely based on Hannah.  He said its a combo of her being really pretty but also really cute and that she seems to have a real personality of being quirky and dorky.    (He also said that she reminded him of me but as I was wearing his old flannel pajamas pants**, ratty tank-top, and drinking a large glass of wine, I just side-eyed him.  Nice save, buddy.) 

 I'm super stoked for her season now for reasons beyond travel porn.  She seems to have some sass in her.  I like how she handled Scott (who is not from Chicago because no one from Chicago boasts that they are living in the city.  Chicago is the city, my dear suburban cheater).  Her repeated "c'mon" to him had us rolling.   I would of kept Chasen and the farmer.  They were cute.  Luke seems like a roid-rager especially in the previews.  Jed bugged me.  I hate singers on this show though.    Consider me intrigued by the season!

*he watches the Bachelor with me but always eschewed the B'lette due to thinking that the men are boring compared to the women.  Oh my sweet summer child... a group of alpha males trying to out bro each other is wildly entertaining.

** Why don't women flannel pajamas pants have pockets?!  I've been looking all over for a pair with pockets.

I was not looking forward to Hannah's season as she could not articulate a single thought or sentence during Colton's season.  When watching the show I was shocked that she initiated conversations, responded well when asked questions, and clearly communicated her thoughts and feelings when sending the guy home before the rose ceremony.  Then it hit me-she must have found Colton very off-putting and was never truly at ease with him.  She is night and day from his season to hers.  I may be all in for this season.
