Bachelorette Blog Posts

I have made a very big decision today, regarding this blog and the things I do or do not blog about.

Today, I will share with you one of those decisions.

I’m going to start sharing my thoughts and recaps of episodes of The Bachelorette. 

And The Bachelor  when it comes back on, too. These shows are my “guilty pleasure” shows that I love, and at the same time I make fun of and yell at ABC for making things seem different than they are. The drama is just SO good! 


I don’t watch MTV crap or Jersey Housewives, so I’m allowed this, okay? 

Seriously, as I was watching episode two the other night, I am thinking all these things and I have no one to share it with! My husband thinks I’m wasting my time on garbage and now he’s going to wonder why I’m wasting my time blogging about it too. So, this will be a great release for me. Ha. And, please share what you think to. I need someone to talk about it with!

The first thing that I have to get off my chest:

OF COURSE THIS IS THE BEST DATE YOU HAVE EVER BEEN ON.

I mean, really. I love that after they go on these extravagant dates to Las Vegas and Figi, where everything is perfectly planned and romantic, then say “ this is the best date I have ever been on. This is the most romantic date I have ever been on.”  Well you don’t say!

Ah, I am already feeling better.

Also, I want to say that I love Ashley. I think she is very sweet, adorable, pretty, hot, nice, caring, loving, cute and all those good things. I like her laugh too. That’s my disclaimer for her. (But I really do mean it.) If I say anything bad about her it’s probably just because I’m jealous of her body or something.

Now, for my first recap! I’m so excited. I’m starting with episode two ( a little behind, sorry!) and I’ll probably do re-caps on Wednesdays. This is going to be awesome. My other re-caps will be better I’m sure because I’ll be blogging right after or during the show — not days after — so everything will be fresh

episode two. 



William: super adorable but also super annoying which unfortunately cancels out his adorable-ness. But, I think he will definitely stay around a while. I think I like him, but then sometimes I don’t. Not sure.

Bently: super adorable but also super annoying and rude which, also, unfortunately cancels out all the hot cells out of his body. So, he’s left with nada. (Sucks for you, dude.) I don’t like his hair and why in Heaven is he wearing a flannel shirt? Was he cold that morning or something? Interesting choice there.

Both these men need to stop talking.

I don’t know what is going on with the whole Bently thing but I think it’s just awful what ABC is having him say or do or whatever and I feel bad for Ashley. I know this is TV and they want rantings, but these are still people. 





Mickey’s Date: I’m sorry, but this date was just too cheesy and lame for me. I didn’t like it. I’m not sure how I feel about Mickey yet. I get sort of a weird vibe with them.

JP: He is normal. During the hang out time, he was wearing a gray hoodie and I remember thinking that he didn’t dress up very much. But, I think I kind of like that. He’s just normal and chill. However, he could use some help in the wardrobe department. But he does own more clothes than me so I should stop talking.

I’m not sure how I feel about Ashley’s choice of clothing. Both her dresses in the beginning were suuuuuper short. She is adorable, so I guess she can pull that off? I just thought WOAH!

I’m writing this a couple days too late, so all my thoughts from the show are a little scattered. I think next weeks’ recap will be much better.  I hope you’re excited.

  1. I agree with all of your statements! 🙂
    This show as well as the Bachelor are my guilty pleasures as well. Mickey is a little weird I think…I only like him sometimes..it depends on what angle the camera catches him! 😉
    I think next week Bentley will either leave himself or Ashley will kick him to the curb…or none of those 2! Ha…they trick you with their previews! I am looking forward to your recaps and opinions too!!

  2. I agree with you 100% on everything! However, Ashley drove me nuts when she was talking to Bentley. I kind of feel that she's bringing all this hurt on herself. SORT OF. I mean, he's still a jerk and I REALLY want to slap him, but she was warned!

    So let me ask you this, as of right now, who is your favorite guy? Honestly, I like Nick. I think he's gorgeous and funny (at least from what I can tell). I think I like him so much because he reminds me of one of my friends growing up. Who knows though, he may end up being a complete loser! 🙂 Only time will tell!

    I can't wait to hear more of your thoughts on the show! This will be the only chance I have to talk about it as well!

    P.S. My husband hates that I watch it and has actually requested I not, so I sneak in the episodes the day after they air while he is at work. I guess that means I can literally call this my GUILTY pleasure! Haha!

  3. Ok I've been following your blog for a while because our kids are close in age, and this is the first time I've commented…

    I am 100% supportive of you blogging about this – my husband also thinks that it's stupid that I watch The Bachelorette (even though he's watched several seasons of The Bachelor with me – he says he can't get into it when it's a bunch of guys because he doesn't understand the girl's reasoning). But I need some trash TV to watch while I'm sorting diapers and folding clothes, and this is perfect! I have to admit though, I've read the spoilers online… I feel like I find the show more interesting if I know what happens, I don't know why!

    I kind of love Ben from Louisiana, and JP seems like a really good guy too. Mickey seems like he's made of cardboard, their date was strange to me too. And William is driving me nuts. Also, WHY is she so obsessed with Bentley? And how many guys is she going to make out with? Despite this, I think this is going to be one of the more enjoyable seasons of The Bachelorette!
