The “Chris Tells All” should’ve been renamed “Chris Recaps Clips We’ve Already Seen.” Once again, just a filler show that really didn’t tell us anything new. Obviously, they built up the Kelsey interview, and what a giant fail that turned into. She told us nothing. The weird part of the whole Kelsey interview is what I shared with you a couple weeks ago about being told Kelsey was in LA Jan. 17th, so I assumed that’s when she shot the interview. Didn’t it seem while watching the interview with her that Chris Harrison was talking about stuff not knowing how big of hot button Kelsey would be? I mean, if the conversation happens on Jan. 17th, that was before the New Mexico and the South Dakota date even aired. So yeah, Chris knew Kelsey would be a talked about figure, but not to the extent she really was. That’s why I believe they kept intertwining clips from those two episodes into the conversation.
She even said, “Am I really that controversial?” Well, if she’s saying that on Jan. 17th before those episodes air, I guess she would say that since she was pretty much a non factor at that point. Chris of course would’ve told her before the interview, “Ok, we’re gonna talk about stuff that hasn’t aired yet,” but still, Kelsey can talk about it at the time, but at the time, she had no idea about the venom that would be spewed her way about the public, hence the “Am I really that controversial” comment. Something was just off about the whole interview, and remembering that it probably happened Jan. 17th, well before either of her two major episodes aired, made it make more sense to me. Whatever the case, the interview gave us no insight into Kelsey and what she really thinks she did wrong, if anything. She’s even complimenting Ashley on what a great girl she is, yet there’s production adding in the clips from last week where she’s trashing her. Exactly. Because Kelsey hadn’t seen the episodes air yet where she did trash her. My head hurts, but I hope you see where I’m going with this.
As for Chris talking with Chris, that was 30 minutes of wasted time. Really? All he did was recap everything we already saw. I will say that Chris Soules is much more comfortable talking to Chris Harrison than he is talking to any woman on a date. He said he didn’t see a future with either Ashley or Kelsey and that’s why he let each of them go. And then Chris Harrison shared with him the story of crazy Ashley S. walking around the production trucks thinking they were betting on the show. Which of course if she had half a brain in her head, she’d know they wouldn’t be betting on anyone since basically everyone in production knows already who’s going to last long on the show and who isn’t. You were a filler girl Ashley. No one was betting on you. But hey, your paranoia made for great TV, so thank you.
As for the sit down interview with Andi, no surprise that she didn’t trash Josh or address any media stories about the break up. She did admit they were not broken up before the premiere this season, but that they had definitely been struggling. Which only proves my point that you can’t judge these people’s relationships based off what you see on Twitter and Instagram. You know nothing. Chris Lambton chimed in last night when I said that on Twitter and said, “except for us” referring to him and Peyton. Completely different. Chris didn’t have his own show. There was no pressure on Chris and Peyton to make it. Hell, they didn’t even get together on one of the spinoff shows. They just started dating privately, then it became public, and they’ve never really had to appear as a couple on this show. I’m talking about the final couples from this show (or BP & BIP) who get together and want to convince all of America how in love they are. Posting pictures and constant tweets doesn’t guarantee you’re going to break up, but it doesn’t guarantee you’re staying together either. Just because you see something on Twitter and Instagram doesn’t mean it’s true. I will say that until I’m blue in the face, and I’m sure you’ll continue to ignore it. Trust me. You’re better off believing what I say.
I don’t really understand why Andi is calling their relationship the biggest failure of her life. It’s your relationship, not the public’s. I get you feel like you let the public down, but that certainly doesn’t make you a failure if you a contrived TV engagement doesn’t end up working in the long run. It’s like she was trying to make it all about herself again. How about you not let the public dictate how you feel, Andi? Absolutely you can be heartbroken over the ending of your engagement to Josh, but calling it the biggest failure of your life seems a bit extreme. I love how concerned Chris is about Andi, and how much he feels for her, and was prodding to see if he thinks they could be friends in the future, or hey, maybe even get back together. You know what’s so funny about that? Because if there’s no good guys to cast for next season’s “Bachelor,” this show would absolutely approach Josh to do it, which would basically be just an F-U to Andi since that would eliminate any possibility of them getting back together. If it benefitted the show to have Josh as the “Bachelor,” they would give two sh**s how Andi felt about it. Please. Nice try, Chris.
