Yet again, even after last week when the previewed tonight’s crazy Overnight Date episode and told people to calm down, it’s not as big of deal as they’re making it out to be, there are still those out there that are dying to know what happens. We’ll get to that in a minute. Wanted to lay out the “Women Tell All” spoilers for you that was taped this past Friday in LA, in which the audience was shown the Hometowns and the Overnight date episodes. The WTA itself will be pretty more a snore fest as usual, since the two most polarizing women in the house, Clare and Nikki, weren’t at the taping because they’re the final two. I’m sure if you followed any of the contestants Twitter or Instagram this weekend you saw Clare in a number of pictures, but that’s because she hung out with the girls on Saturday. She was not part of the taping whatsoever on Friday. And for those that may still be questioning the spoiler, which I can’t believe there can be many at this point, but if you are: Do you honestly think they’d be letting the final girl just randomly go see every other girl to party and hang out with them? It’s never happened in the history of the show. But hey, you don’t need to take my word for it. March 10th is less than two weeks away.
Ok, lets break down your “Women Tell All” spoilers, which aren’t a whole hell of a lot.
-The women in attendance were everyone who made it past night one, minus Nikki and Clare obviously, but also Amy Long, who didn’t show for whatever reason. Probably couldn’t get someone to cover the Cinderella shift at Disneyworld or something. They also included two girls from night one: Kylie and Lauren H. So in total, these were the 17 women in attendance: Chelsie, Andi, Sharleen, Kat, Alli, Kelly (with Molly at her side), Lauren S., Elise, Renee, Lucy, Danielle, Chantel, Cassandra, Christy, Victoria, Kylie, and Lauren H.
-The 3 women brought up on the hot seat were Renee, Andi, and Sharleen. The only thing notable from any of them was that Chris mentioned to Renee something about her having a new man in her life, and she played coy. She does. Don’t know his name, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing him soon.
-Sean & Catherine make an appearance to talk about married life.
-There were bloopers.
-No real sniping between any of the girls towards each other. The focus seemed to turn on Juan Pablo and basically what a sh**ty “Bachelor” he was. Whether or not that gets edited out, I don’t know. But a few women voiced their opinions on him saying he didn’t seem to spend enough time with them when he promised he would, and that he didn’t take an interest in a lot of them. Exactly, because he didn’t have an interest in many of them.
-Once Juan Pablo appeared, he was called out on certain things like why he never asked the girls anything about themselves, why he talked about himself a lot, and even why he used Camila as an excuse so much to not kiss girls. Also taking Renee to hometowns and meeting her son only to let her go. So yeah, basically what I told you back in November that the girls did not like him and he really didn’t care to like them.
-He called Cassandra’s son Trevor instead of Trey. That didn’t go over well. Cassandra also gave him sh*t about kissing her but not Renee by saying Renee was a mother, so Cassandra didn’t know if she should feel offended or Renee should feel offended. Ha ha. Great point.
-Kelly was even brought to tears at one point, because she has a gay dad, and lets Juan Pablo know she was offended by his comments back in January.
-Nikki and Clare were never really a topic at all on the show.
-Clare’s swim in the ocean was discussed a little bit, but they did not dive too deep into it. Get it? Metaphor.
-There was an after party for the girls and producers only, and then an after party after that, which most of the girls attended. Former “Bachelorette” contestants Zack Kalter, Robert Graham, and whaddya’ know, Jef Holm showed up to mark their territory of which girls they want to bang first before moving on to someone else.
-Saturday night, the girls had dinner at Pink Taco, then continued on to party at 1OAK where they got to hang with D-listers like Lance Bass and Jaleel White. And Derek Hough was there too. He’s a few steps above a D-lister.
So yeah, that’s pretty much your WTA spoilers. I’m sure the previews will play it up to make better than it was, but this show is a major disappointment every season. The only good one they ever had was Ben’s season, because they brought Courtney out to get attacked by every single girl.
Now, onto tonight’s episode and what happens with Andi. Here are the basics you need to know:
-There is no fighting or arguing that happens at all on their actual overnight date. Their overnight date ends like all others do. You think everything is great, and they head to commercial. Clare’s overnight is first, then Andi, then Nikki.
-After we’re all done with the overnights, we get the “video messages” from the girls. Nikki’s and Clare’s are shown first with the standard, “Hey Juan Pablo, such a magical journey, blah blah blah…” When Andi’s video comes on, she says something to the effect of she’s been doing a lot of thinking, and it’d be best if she spoke to him in person. Her video cuts off, and we see Andi walking towards Juan Pablo.
-A few things that Andi is upset with. In the fantasy suite (even though we never see it so we don’t know who is telling truth), Andi claims that Juan Pablo told her she was the default pick to come to St. Lucia. Juan Pablo claims he never said that since he doesn’t even know what default means. Touche. Might have to agree with him on that. Anyway, they argue over whether or not he said that, and that’s when he tells her the clip we’ve seen of, “You barely made it.” Gee, that really smoothed things over. I’m sure that’s exactly what she wanted to hear.
-Also (yet another thing we never saw them talk about on the overnight) is Juan Pablo brings up the fact that he already had his date with Clare. Andi isn’t too thrilled to hear that, Juan Pablo tells her he’s just being honest, and that’s when we she tells him the clip we’ve seen of, “That’s not being honest, that’s you being an asshole.”
-And Andi accuses Juan Pablo of never asking her anything about herself and talking about himself the whole time. Says there are things about her he doesn’t even know, and he thinks otherwise. She asks him what religion she is, and he says he doesn’t know. Oooooh, burn. She’s Jewish. He retorts that she doesn’t know what religion he is, and she says “Catholic,” which is correct. Oooooh, burn again. 2 points Dorfman, 0 points Galavis. Needless to say, the Dorfman clan is destroying Juan Pablo the last two nights.
So it’s essentially Andi is getting upset that he hasn’t really shown much interest in her, he doesn’t ask her any questions about herself, she thinks he’s being disrespectful in some of the things he says and how he acts, and she tells him she’s not in love with him, to which he immediately replies “Eeesss ok, eeeesss ok.” But like I said, all of this comes about completely after the fact, because on their date, nothing is wrong. The promos have wanted you to believe it’s something sexual related, or that we see these people fighting on their date, or even alluding to fighting in bed. Didn’t happen. They don’t show them arguing in bed, they don’t show them fighting the next morning, etc. It’s all done after the fact on the morning of the rose ceremony after all the overnight dates are over where Andi is doing her ITM’s saying how awful it went, and Juan Pablo is on the flip side and, per usual, thinks everything is great. So Andi eventually eliminates herself after all the arguing and that’s that.
The ratings are in from last night, and they are definitely up from last week’s season low 7.6 million viewers. 8.14 million watched, including a 2.4 rating in the 18-49 demo, up from a 2.2 last week. I expect tonight’s episode to be even higher. Next week will probably take a dip because it’s “Women Tell All,” but the finale will draw over 9 million I’m sure.
Only two deleted scenes this week. This one is of Juan Pablo getting ready with Camila before hometowns. The other one I embedded in my recap of Clare’s hometown date:
