-Time for Garrett and Becca’s love fest. It begins with the ol’ run and jump into his arms and straddle him greeting. This happened on a beach in front of a bunch of people and you saw the pictures get out that day that someone had posted on their FB page. Garrett is pretty pumped they’re getting to ride a seaplane and all I could think of was how different this plane ride was than just a few days ago in Virginia when she was in a two seater plane with Leo and looked like she’d rather be getting a root canal. Then again, probably had something to do with the fact that she actually likes Garrett. Well, loves Garrett and moderately tolerated Leo. If you had to grade her interest in Garrett versus her interest in Leo on a scale of 1-10 with 1 being how Jared felt about Ashley on BIP 2 & 3 and at Tanner and Jade’s weddding and 10 being all the love in the world, Leo would be at a -592 and Garrett would be +1953. That’s just a little math I was able to calculate in my head.
-They get dropped off on an island to themselves and do a little making out in the water. Becca even insists she’s
never been this horny never wanted to make out in the water with somebody as much as she did right then. She says she always is happy around him and has never seem him mad or down when he’s around. You know, like Blake who can’t stop whining and sniveling about a date back at the hotel. Garrett says he’s trying to be as understanding as he can with this because it’s not easy. Well, good to know Garrett is an understanding person. At least in some areas. Then Garrett reaches into his bag of tricks and yet another guy who seems to have studied at the Jef Holm Institute of Ecards and gives her this line: “I’m not perfect, you’re not perfect, but I think we can be perfect together.” I feel like I’ve heard that line 1,000 times before, yet, I can’t remember what movie/TV show/commercial/Hallmark card I heard/saw it, but there’s zero chance that line is original.
-Dinner time and Becca and Garrett sit down for a little chit chat. Becca makes a toast at dinner where I forgot her lines but Garrett is impressed. It’s not nearly as impressive as the rehearsed written lines he’s had for her all season, but decent nonetheless for his standards. They talk about a possible upcoming hometown date for him and he says she’d meet his mom, dad, brother, sister, and grandma. What’s funny is there was zero chance he wasn’t getting a rose so all this pretend B.S. was pretty lame. Like was he really trying to sell himself to her at this point of why he deserved a hometown? Probably a good chance they were planning that parade and key to the city in Manteca the minute he got the first impression rose a month earlier. Garrett could’ve hand pulled the wings off a butterfly in front of her and he would’ve still gotten a hometown. Garrett could’ve told Becca her jeans made her butt look bigger and he still would’ve gotten a hometown. Garrett could’ve liked a bunch of hateful…forget it.
-As we get into the meat and potatoes of this conversation, Becca asks about Garrett’s ex again and Garrett wastes little time in throwing her under the bus – again. Look, I’m well aware there are two sides to every story. And I’m sure his ex Kayla probably doesn’t have the greatest things to say about him either. But all the “you should get her on the podcast” stuff needs to stop. If she was still single and reached out to me, sure. Then I’d listen. But she’s a married woman now who I’m guessing has moved on and doesn’t want to talk about a failed 2 month marriage from her past, regardless of what Garrett is saying about her. Nonetheless, Garrett reiterates that she was “hot headed” and always “yelling and screaming,” which is about as generic as you can get. I’m sure only a selected few know about their past, so there’s no need to dive into what he said. We just don’t know. However, from what he said, my opinion is that I don’t see the point in why he’d share that. Yes, he already mentioned it in a previous episode and I didn’t agree then. Seems like a pretty low blow if you ask me. Now, if you want to tell that to Becca in private when you’re together, that makes perfect sense. But to expose her on national TV? Seems a bit extreme.
-Garrett said her actions changed who he was and he would overlook it because he wanted to make it work so bad. So basically he’s doubling down on everything here. Not only did she do ALL this, but look at what a trooper I was putting up with all of it because I wanted to make it work so bad. Actually, I call that stupidity. We’ve all been there. We’ve all put up with more of an ex’s sh** than we should’ve or maybe stayed longer than we should’ve. Doesn’t make us a better person for it. Especially if it continually happened. It only makes it better if you actually learn from it and don’t repeat the same mistake in a future relationship. So I guess this is the blip on their radar that they’ll have to overcome (well, among other things), but they’ve seemed to move past it for now, his ex has been trashed a second time, and now Becca has a surprise for him. They go running into the ocean late at night for a swim and make out session. Although how much of a surprise could it have been since it seemed like both of them had on their bathing suits underneath their outfits? Remember how the spies were working overtime that night?
