The “Bachelor” Nick Episode 4 Recap incl Corinne’s Mom Goes Off, the Arkansas Conspiracy, Raven’s Ex-Boyfriend, and Who Hooked Up This Weekend?

-The group date is 12 girls headed to a farm to do farming stuff. It’s almost like us as viewers could write this show ourselves. Knowing what a spoiled brat Corinne is and the way she acts, of course she was gonna be put on this date doing things she didn’t want to do, and her reaction was completely unexpected. I actually saw people on social media last night saying they thought she was funny. Really? That was funny to you? I found it all obnoxious, but hey, to each their own. Corinne immediately started out by telling us the whole place smells bad and she’d “rather be at a spa eating a taco. Preferably chicken.” Well, you are on a farm honey. Not gonna have that lavender aroma that spas have. I guess I just didn’t find it funny because it was so predictable how she’d act on this date. Did anything that came out of her mouth surprise you? She complained because she was out of her element. Great. We’ve seen that numerous times with past contestants so I didn’t find anything she said or did all that original. Can you tell I’m kinda over Corinne and her antics? Wasn’t sure.

-When in Rome, do as the Romans do, so when on a farm, do what farmers do. Feed the cows hay, and milk them. Nick had a little bit of trouble milking cows until Jaimi, the ummmmm bisexual one, stepped in and showed everyone how to handle the cow’s teats. Congrats Jaimi. You are a professional at this. Now all we need you to do is go drink that milk you just squeezed without yakking all over everyone. I mean, they actually did do it according to the article I linked to on page 1. They did it on Chris Soules’ season when they had the farming group date, didn’t they? I mean, how many laughs a minute would we have had watching Corinne chug a gallon of freshly squeezed cow milk? I might’ve keeled over from laughing so hysterically. Or not. You know what does make me laugh hysterically? Corinne in a Juicy J and 2 Chainz video (fast forward to 1:45-2:36 to see Corinne doing whatever white girls do in rapper videos. And plug your ears if you don’t like explicit lyrics and women being degraded):

Classy Corinne. This girl is so transparent it’s ridiculous. Just own up to why you did the show and I guarantee less people would have a problem with you.

-Next up on the list of “Things We’re Gonna Do on This Date Just To Get a Reaction Out of Corinne,” is shovel manure. Granted, this date sucked and no one who’s looking to impress Nick probably wanted to be out on that farm freezing their ass off and shoveling manure. I get it. But 11 other girls did it, didn’t whine and bitch and sit things out like Corinne did now did they? Vanessa was a trooper, Jasmine fought through it, so did Alexis, Rachel, Sarah, and whoever else was on that date. But since this is the Corinne show, we only really saw her reactions to everything, which made this date 10x worse than it already was. Did you miss what Corinne said? “Why? Why? Why? Everywhere I turn there is poop…worse date I’ve ever been on…I need sushi.” Bahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. Get it? She’s a spoiled elitist brat and she’s shoveling manure, but because she hates it so much, she has to pull her best Elle Woods and Erica Rose impression and talk about something else she’d rather be doing. I think she might have a stand up career when this is all said and done. What a hoot this one is.

-I’d really like to talk about something on this date other than Corinne, but when the whole date and after party is pretty much focused on her, there’s not much else to talk about. Oh wait, here’s Kristina, America’s favorite Russian spy! She’s the first one we see Nick talking to at the group date after party and she tells him that while she may not be as aggressive as some of the other women, she does have a lot she wants to talk to him about. She didn’t have it easy growing up. But she’ll have to do it in pieces, because there’s a lot. Nick says he’d love to hear all about it…some other time. He’s got more important things to tend to now. You know, like hearing Vanessa complain about Danielle L. that they decided to not show, but instead, give us a more positive edit on Vanessa. Can’t say I’m the least bit surprised by that one as I mentioned I had no idea if they’d show it or not. Reality Steve: 2, Show: 0.

-So instead of getting Vanessa telling Nick she thinks Danielle L. is fake, we get Vanessa having an already prepared book of pictures that her co-workers and students had made up for him before she even stepped into the house. So basically it looks to me like Vanessa was out to win this thing no matter what and pulled out all the stops to do so. I mean, if that’s what you want then sure, go for it. I just find it a tad suspicious. Because god forbid if someone that was disliked by the audience pulled this same stunt, I’m sure the masses in the audience wouldn’t let her hear the end of it. But because it’s Vanessa and we know they’re engaged now, then its looked at completely different. Happens every season, but just wanted to point that out. There’s no denying Nick is into Vanessa this early in the show. We all can see that. I just find it funny that, to me, Vanessa is kinda skating by with the Nikki edit. I know I can’t prove that she told Nick about Danielle L. during this date, but there are tons of things over the years that I haven’t been able to prove that have been true. This is just another instance. Those that love Vanessa and think she walks on water will choose not to believe it, and those who can be objective about things are open to it. Because things aren’t shown on this show doesn’t mean they didn’t happen.

-We’re back to Corinne. She lays it out there for everyone that if they have a problem with her, to come talk to her about it. Sarah practically jumped out of her clothes to immediately ask her a question. “Do you think you are seriously ready to marry a 36 year old man? Because I don’t think you are.” I mean, Corinne asked for it, and someone had a legitimate concern regarding her intentions on the show, confronted her to her face about it, and Corinne basically had no comeback. Oh wait, she apologized for taking a nap. She didn’t mean to offend anyone. Huh? What? Who? Where? While everyone else can clearly see the constant napping is a sign of disrespect where EVERYONE is tired and would like to nap, Corinne just looks at the nap as the act itself without seeing the overlying ramifications. Because after all, “Michael Jordan napped. Abraham Lincoln took naps.” Corinne should be doing those #TheMoreYouKnow PSA’s with riveting information like that.

-Then later, Corinne was confronted by KGB Kristina, who gave her the third degree and basically became my favorite Russian since Ivan Drago. Are we sure they’re not related? But because Corinne feels she’s being attacked, even though she specifically asked anyone who had a problem with her to tell her to face and now they all are, Corinne ghosts out of that conversation saying she doesn’t need to listen to this anymore. Which is usually the reaction from someone who knows what the other person is saying is dead right. Corinne then goes to Nick, says she had a talk with the ladies, everything will be fine, and she doesn’t see any more problems arising. Translation: expect every episode remaining that has Corinne in it to have problems arising. Starting with next week’s 2-on-1 with Taylor. Nick ends of giving Kristina the rose, Corinne is pissed, and well, you know the rest. 12 girls were on this date. We saw Nick’s time with 3 of them at this after party: Kristina (bc it wouldn’t have made sense to see her getting the group date rose if we didn’t see their conversation), Vanessa (because of course), and Rachel (who has a 1-on-1 next week). So 9 girls who had time with him that night don’t get shown for one second so we can all see more of the Corinne Show. You know what else got left on the cutting room floor? the girls confronting Vanessa AND Taylor about how they “turned” on Danielle L. Never shown. Happened. Reality Steve: 3, Show: 0. And whaddya’ know? Vanessa and Taylor (along with Danielle M. and Kristina) were all together in Nashville this weekend hanging out and posting to Instagram. Certainly curious when you think back to New Years Eve in Miami, when a larger group of 7 of them got together for the weekend: Rachel, Astrid, Raven, Alexis, Whitney, Kristina, and Sarah. No Vanessa. No Taylor. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm. So again, if you’re a Vanessa fan and she can do no wrong, you dismiss the story, and think the other 7 are the mean girls in all of this. If you’re objective, you can see things start to add up. Aren’t you glad I’m here to help?

    I am in the helping field and I’ve said this a thousand times, it doesn’t matter what letters you have after your name, people are people. Good therapists are hard to find. Enough said.

    My favorites are Raven and Rachel. Corinne is a hoot. More calculating and therefore smarter than anyone is giving her credit. She knows her entertainment value and is riding her 15 minutes hard.

    On your bit about the “bachelor” franchise reunion in nashville…Lauren B was there. Has anyone else noticed that she’s been doing a lot of traveling and posting absolutely NOTHING about ben here lately? Did they break up and I’m just the last to find out?

    bsexton, Lauren B and Ben are still together. She doesn’t have a traditional “job” anymore. She makes money through social media now. If you follow any other social media “influencers” they all travel a lot (i.e. Becca Tilley)

    i just wanted to call out all the hypocritical women who took part on the march on saturday who were demanding respect for womens rights

    yet not 48 hours later were among the 7.4 million women who tuned in to this show to again win its slot in the adult women demographic and took part in this show trending as the #1 thing on twitter.

    If you are going to fight for a cause and want to be taken seriously, how about also boycotting shows like this that have at its core the purpose of demeaning women while showcasing and encouraging women who are WILLING to act like complete airhead barbie dolls just for some attention/money/fame and instagram followers. The fact that those same people who watch and take part on twitter essentially negate any real significance or future change given to the cause that took place on saturday.

    The only thing I’m interested in finding out, after reading this whole article, is who Raven’s ex-boyfriend is and how it was possible for the Arkansas Conspiracy.

    The last episode ran like an episode of, “The Simple Life”. Everything that happened on the farm date was expected. It was also expected that Corinne would get a rose to stir controversy and that controversy would errupt.

    Danielle L. also comes off as fake, even with all that editing. Yes, everyone knows Corinne is entitled, I don’t find her funny either. Just the SSDD, it’s old.

    Regarding the Amanda/Wells situation, it’s not a surprise Amanda found a different guy from the franchise. She needs to continue to make money off social media, and a new guy fans already know is a good way to do that. Probably the same type of thing JJ & Juelia tried to do.

    Scandal above or someone with a vendetta against Raven?

    @katieottawa……so you can’t participate in a women’s march if you watch this show? Does that theory or “calling out” include watching beauty pageants, posting revealing selfies, sleeping around, putting on makeup or doing anything else focused on superficial things or things related to objectifying women?

    Actually, Steve, if you had read the entire Knigge Farms article, you would know that they did not actually drink the fresh-squeezed milk. The farmer (whatever his name was) said they are not allowed to drink milk which has not been pasteurized, so they were compelled to warm some pasteurized milk and have the “ladies” drink that.

    I hope Rachel gets the gig so the cries of racism can finally go away. I’m getting bored by the show and Corinne has overstayed her welcome. If I never saw her in the Franchise of this show I would be happy. I hope to see the Danielle’s,Taylor and Astrid on BIP. Their good look will bring in the guys panting!

    As a female myself, I can 100% agree that women are the bigger hypocrites. Men have their own flaws, but women take the cake with hypocrisy.

    Also, Nick is really dull. I only watched him on Kaitlyn’s season and had no reason to believe otherwise, but yea, very boring.

    If women were offended about the things trump said regarding women than these same women should also be just as offended by the bachelor, abc and the horndog star himself and his airhead bimbos for the way they act and portray women on this show. This guy is on a tv platform where we can ACTUALLY SEE him grabbing random womens boobs, asses, licking boobs, rubbing explicitly on women, making out with many of them and where one of them was made known to have a one night stand with. Why is this guy or show and network not getting the same level of criticism for his actions which are being publicly broadcasted to a national audience? On a march you protest trumps words yet 7.4 million then watch, tweet and essentially participate and support the blatant message of this show which is to objectify, demean and devalue women by having one guy essentially have his way with multiple women with no self respect and no integrity who choose to let him for fame and money. So which is it?

    As a true advocate then you would be offended by all encompassing matters that negatively impacts how women are treated and viewed with this show being a huge contributor to the problem and therefore not wanting to support it either. I called these so called feminists who marched hypocrites because they set up a march with a clear personal dislike for trump yet wanted to disguise it as a cause for women’s rights to add weight to serve their purpose of protesting. Just dont wear pussy hats and pretend to be all offended by the things that trump said but then 2 days later tune into the bachelor and be fine with it and then make us believe that womens rights are all that important. If these women want us to take them seriously than they cant just select certain matters that suits them to serve their cause while overlooking others just as significant or else it loses all its purpose and importance.

    I am saddened that women do not understand what a march for woman’s rights is about; It’s about the right to continue to have legal access to choices in our lives. In my opinion, Rights does not equal feminism; the commentators above seem to be confusing the two. My concern when I joined my local march this past Saturday is my and my daughters losing the right to make medical choices regarding our bodies and healthcare. My concern is the loss of rights for all people easy leagl access to vote. My concern is deregulating multi billion businesses so that they can undo all environmental safeguards that have been installed in the past 20 years to protect our drinking water, our soil, our air to breathe (have you seen pictures of the air quality disaster in China, well the US is on its way to match such poor air quality in some areas, and great strides have been made in past years to nip this potentially irreversible disaster in the bud, Trump just used his executive power to undo these safeguards yesterday with one stroke of his pen, great for the profit potential of a very few billionaires, bad for the people/businesses who live in areas impacted negatively by oil spills, toxic run-off in water/soil/air etc. – this is what I marched against) TV Bachelor Nick is not the leader of the most powerful nation and the girls have signed on with consent to participating on the farce of the Bachelor as a career path to success after the show – it is entertainment. How can one really compare Nick’s consensual behavior with these “actresses” who more often than not instigate themselves the physical contact with the bachelor, to the President of the United States of America groping women without permission and then bragging about it (that is sexual assault and is a jail time offense) tsk. Makes me sick. Just because I watch the Bachelor for the faux entertainment silliness that it is, does not mean I cannot also passionately want to defend real life funding and access to healthcare and equal pay for all women. If men can get government/insurance funding for viagra, you better believe that women should get same funding access to birth control, especially if people preach that they don’t want unwanted pregnancy. Men can get Government assistance for prostrate screening/treatment, but GOP wants to defund Planned Parenthood whose primary care is cervical/breast cancer screening, Prenatal care, family health for children, and access to affordable birth control to limit situations where abortion might be then be a legal choice. I may not agree with what the women on the show may want to present themselves as in relation to how they go about winning the show, but I sure want them to have the right to be who they are even if I don’t agree. (As long as they are not harming anyone, I do not like at all the bullying). I marched for Women’s Rights, The protection of the environment, fair living wages, unfettered access to scientific facts and information (are you aware that Trump just shut down yesterday ALL public access to scientific research/communication of several major agencies including EPA, Labor dept, Interior, National Park Service and others – no access allowed at all, banned from communication to public – this is serious people!!!) With little warning and no explanation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention canceled a major climate change conference that had been scheduled for next month in Atlanta. “The Climate and Health Summit, which had been in the works for months, was intended as a chance for public health officials around the country to learn more about the mounting evidence of the risks to human health posed by the changing climate. I marched against this abhorrent silencing of science. And sadly so much more…. Please do not negate all these very important concerns because I am also a woman who watches a stupid TV show – that makes no sense. Disagree, sure, but don’t try to badger me because I watch TV – my life concerns are real for me and my children and the future of this amazing nation and planet. I can be against torture and committing war crimes by stealing by military force oil of another country and still want to drink a glass of red wine or bourbon while watching the farce of The Bachelor. Thank you for your understanding even if you do not personally support. For now thankfully, that is still your right – I will march to protect that right.
