The Bachelorette 11 - Kaitlyn/Britt

The “Bachelorette” Kaitlyn Episode 1 Recap Incl Tons of News & Notes & a Tentative “Bachelor in Paradise” Cast List

-Once the cocktail party started, Kaitlyn didn’t take long to turn into Jokey McJokerstein with her knock knock joke. Of course, since Britt is there looking for her life partner, her best friend, her adventurer and any other ridiculous adjective you can think for being placed on a television show where you have no say who’s picked for you and expected to be engaged to them in less than two months, maybe we see now why the guys chose Kaitlyn. A little more fun, no? Or maybe because they were all led in that direction to vote for Kaitlyn. One of the two. Whatever the case, for 42nd time this episode we’re reminded again that Kaitlyn and Britt are two different people. We get it. Kaitlyn likes sexting, sending nude pics, and has no problem talking about sex in the fantasy suite, yet Britt wants no part of that. What’s that age old saying, “Prudes always lose.” Very old saying. Like, about 30 seconds since I just made it up.

-Ryan B. has a knock knock joke of his own for Britt.

Ryan B.: “Knock, knock.”
Britt: “Who’s there?”
Ryan B.: “Interrupting cow.”
Britt: “Interrupting…”
Ryan B.: “Mooooooooooooo!!!!”

Seriously? Can we please stop it with the f***ing knock knock jokes? Are we 6? Has there ever been a funny knock knock joke? Ever? Grown adults need to stay away from two things during first impressions: knock knock jokes and anal toys, both of which we saw last night. This franchise never ceases to amaze me.

-Shawn B. needs to seriously slow his roll because he’s falling in love. “I believe in love at first sight & I actually think it might’ve happened tonight when I saw Kaitlyn out of the limo.” Easy there, bud. Lay off the hyperbole. I wanna take your poor man’s Ryan Gosling’s looks and take you seriously, but when you say stupid sh** like that on the first night, I lose all faith in you as a man. Also, I think we might wanna start backing off the Gosling comparisons since I don’t recall Ryan Gosling having an underbite. Shawn I say play it slow, quit spewing what producers are telling you to say with the whole “love at first sight nonsense,” and just chill out. Usually people who are that giddy on night 1 are done early. Obviously we know Shawn is around til the end, but good golly, act like you’ve liked a girl before. Geez.

-Tony talks to Britt about all his weirdness. Britt never calls him out for saying the same thing to Kaitlyn he said to her out of the limo. Tony says that he initially came on the show for Kaitlyn, but after talking to Britt, he’d changed his mind and decided he will choose Britt. I’m not sure what type of first impression you can make on a girl when you’re staring her straight in the face with a black eye, greasy hair, and a ginormous creep factor vibe you’re giving off. Namaste Tony. Exit stage left and go have sex with your plants. They miss you.

-Clint sits down with Kaitlyn and says he drew her a picture. He didn’t know who the “Bachelorette” was gonna be so he hopes she likes it. It was a picture of Chris Harrison riding a triceratops. This was glorious. Everything you would’ve expected it to be. On Twitter last night, Clint gave the reason why he drew Chris Harrison on a triceratops:

Well I guess that explains that now, doesn’t it? Ummmmm, thanks?

-Chris Harrison enters the room and says the voting box is open. Guys can go in there and vote at any time. You place a rose in the ballot box for the one girl you have feelings for. Tony is the first one to step up and immediately went to the voting booth to vote for Britt. “The energy coming from the chest with Britt’s name on it was pulsating.” Tony, you’re a freakin’ whack job. He then puts it in Britt’s box. A lot stuff being put in boxes tonight and that is just too funny not to acknowledge. It’s like the creators of “Burning Love” decided to write the script for this first episode. Too bad after tonight, there’s only one box left to talk about this season. Something I’m guessing Nick already had pictures of before the season began filming based on Kaitlyn’s Seacrest interview yesterday.

-Crazy Tony votes immediately because the Zen Gods told him to vote for Britt. Or maybe it was his plants. Or some rock formation. Whatever the case, he votes for Britt right away then goes back to applying to some concealer to cover up his shiner. Jared is next and he’s really torn about who to vote for. Both made a great impression on him and we see him put it in her box, we just don’t know which girls box he slipped it in. Lets at least hope they know. You don’t want to put it in anyone’s box without them knowing. I’m pretty sure you can go to jail for that. I think Jared kinda looks like someone you’d see in the “Hobbit.” I don’t know if it’s the hair over the ears thing, or the shark teeth, or the fact he looks about 5’2” but I’m missing something on him. But hey, good luck buddy.

-Ben H. asks Kaitlyn about her “bird tattoos” on the back of both her elbows. Immediately Kaitlyn is impressed by this because no one’s asked her that. Not even Chris last season. Ooooohhhhh, shots fired! Nice little dig there by Kaitlyn. She says they are the only birds that always fly home and home is important to her. She’s lived in a lot of places but she always flies home for any important things in her life. Kaitlyn, after what you pulled this season, you could get a giant sunflower on the small of your back and I’d still think you’re the bees knees. And yes, pretty impressive how Kaitlyn has grown on me since last season when I was all about Britt. Of course, it basically all comes down to her decision this season. If she would’ve picked someone, then I certainly wouldn’t have changed my opinion of her. But being the female Brad Womack does have its perks I tell ya’.

-More McDizzy. Shawn E. pulls him outside to ask him why he disrespected his entrance when “I don’t even know who you are.” Drunk McDill’s retort? “Who are you? You do suck by the way. Everything about you.” Don’t you love being in an argument with a drunk person? They think so logically and always have very well thought out answers that make complete sense. It’s like McDill was mad at Shawn for what Shawn did, even though he did nothing. And when any argument you have ends with the drunk person saying, “you suck. Everything about you,” pretty sure you win that battle. ABC has been promoting the hell out of that new game show “500 Questions.” For the love of God, if they had any sense about TV programming, they’d give Ryan the bottle of moonshine that Joe brought to the show, have him down it in record time, then put him up there as one of the contestants. Hilarity would ensue. I should be a TV programmer. And then once Ryan’s appearance on “500 Questions” is over, you set up a faux reality show where he and “Frank the Tank” go streaking in the quad around college campuses.

-Ryan then pulls Britt outside. JJ comes up and says, “The bar said they have another drink for you.” Ryan pleads for 5 more minutes, JJ walks away, and Jonathan comes in to save her. Next scene is Ryan now talking to Kaitlyn telling her how good she looks. He runs his hand down her side then kinda gave a quick slap on her ass saying “Very Ryan approved.” Ben Z. then pulls Ryan aside to say that wasn’t cool, and Ryan says “don’t ever f***ing talk to me again.” We’ve gotten to the stage of drunkenness where Ryan is completely inconsolable on anything. Granted, I figured Kaitlyn to be one who would enjoy a little slap on the ass. Guess not. You think Nikki was at home watching this last night saying to herself, “You know, maybe being with Juan Pablo wasn’t so bad after all.” Funny story about Nikki. I’ve never tweeted anything to her in my life. Nor would I. Yet I saw a couple retweets so I went to her account to see if she said anything about her ex Ryan, and she had blocked me. You know you probably shouldn’t be on social media if you’re blocking people who’ve never tweeted at you before. Talk about thin skin. Poor girl. Loves being on TV and loves the attention – except when it’s negative, which is basically what Twitter has become.

-At this point, Ryan strips down into his speedo and goes in the pool while the other guys watch in amazement. We see him with drink in hand fall down by the pool, then walk into the voting booth knocking the giant picture of Kaitlyn down, then while standing at the boxes choosing who to vote for with rose in hand, he starts talking to both Kaitlyn and Britt’s picture on the wall before chucking the rose across the room. When your BAL reaches the point of a dominant relief pitcher’s ERA, talking to photos on the wall probably seems like the normal thing to do. Once out in the hallway, the greatest conversation you’ll ever hear took place. We see Ryan putting his shirt back on when JJ confronts him. This happened:

JJ: “Why are you taking your shirt off?”
Ryan: “Why am I not raping you right now?”

Ok then. Good talk.

-Security guy in the hat comes into the room a little bit later and says to Ryan, “Chris Harrison would like to speak with you.” Ryan’s response: “Chris Hansen.” Yes, Chris Hansen wants to meet with you. He wants to ask why you arrived at the mansion with some lube, condoms, and handcuffs. Just to talk, right? Chris meets him outside, says he’s not here for the right reasons, and they’re gonna send him home. Really Chris? You couldn’t think of a better send off for Ryan than the ol’ standby of “not here for the right reasons?” How about, “You can’t be piss drunk, you can’t be wildly inappropriate, and you can’t start slapping asses on our show Ryan. This is a family show.” Ryan says, “Is that it?” and then gets into the van. I hate that we don’t at least get a second night of McDill being shmammered. It’s depriving us all. So sad.

-Tanner is sitting with Britt telling her he watched last season and that’s when Britt chimes in with him giving her the tissues. She thinks it was kind of a shot at her for being emotional. Tanner: “That didn’t go over well.” We see him in the next scene in a group of guys saying, “I like Kaitlyn.” Gotta love Tanner doing a 180 on Britt once he realized his tissue joke went over about as well as a fart in church. I’m guessing we all know who Tanner voted for now. If I had to guess (and I’m going with McDill actually ended up successfully putting a rose in a correct box), I’d say Kaitlyn won the vote 14-11 or 15-10. In the short clip we see of Chris Harrison taking roses out of Britt’s box (sorry, can’t help myself), she had at least 6 roses in the pile and I don’t think he was done. But whatever. I don’t think the vote really matters. We’ve known since the day after the vote happened it would be Kaitlyn so it’s not like tonight’s episode should have anybody watching with their jaw to the floor.

-I still don’t know why the show didn’t acknowledge this shortly after it happened. To sit there for the last week and have Britt and Kaitlyn conduct interviews with the media and not be able to talk about anything past night one is just dumb. There were PLENTY of pictures, media outlets, and stories over the last two months where we knew Kaitlyn was the “Bachelorette,” not just this site. So it’s not like only one guy was reporting it and there was no visual evidence of it so they could still mask the secret. The whole thing is just silly because you’re building this hype around who the guys chose since you started promoting the season, and even people who don’t read the episode-by-episode spoilers by now know who was chosen. I think they would’ve been better suited to announce it maybe a week after she was chosen, then start the media firestorm like they would any regular season. What’s worse is the media outlets that kiss ABC’s ass and agree to do these interviews with Britt and Kaitlyn all well knowing who was chosen, just so they can get interviews later on. If you’re a news/entertainment outlet, and you bow down to them and do softball interviews like I’ve seen the last week, just know you look completely embarrassing. When information has been out there for 2 months and you don’t acknowledge, you start to lack credibility. Fine by me. Means it just builds this site’s credibility season after season after season.

-Kaitlyn sitting with Shawn B. after telling him he smells delicious or something like that. They start talking about their niece and nephew, and his nephew drew Kaitlyn a picture of her and it was basically what you’d expect from a kid. Stick figure of a girl. Kaitlyn says in an ITM: “This is the closest I’ve felt to love at first sight.” This on the heels of Shawn saying earlier in the episode that he also might’ve experienced love at first sight when he saw Kaitlyn for the first time out of the limo. Oh boy. This is heading for a serious disaster. Yesterday in an interview with the Huffington Post, Chris Harrison said there’s a “full Mesnick” this season, meaning that at some point, someone will be wailing away over a railing like Jason did after letting Molly go. I don’t know who he’s referring to this season, but we can pretty much narrow it down to 3 people: Kaitlyn, Shawn, or Nick. I’d be stunned if it was someone other than those three.

-Then they show a few guys in the voting booth placing their roses in boxes. So the overall tally of votes we actually see take place in the voting booth:

Kaitlyn: Ian, Ben H., Chris, Corey, and Ben Z.
Britt: Tony, Jonathan, Kupah, Josh

Although I think Jared voted for Kaitlyn, and we saw Justin on the couch telling a guy he voted for Britt. And we obviously know Shawn voted for Kaitlyn because he’s obsessed with her. So when tonight’s episode starts, I highly doubt he’s gonna say what the results of the voting were. But we know it’s Kaitlyn and we’ll see her cocktail party and first rose ceremony. The one question I’ve been getting asked the most so far seems to be Britt and Brady’s relationship and how much we’ll see. I don’t know. I don’t see the episodes in advance outside of the premiere every season, so I have no idea how much or how often we’ll get an updated on their relationship. Obviously Chris Harrison’s weekly interview today didn’t say much because he still could only answer questions regarding what we saw last night. However, I’m guessing in future interviews he does (not sure if there will be another one tomorrow), I gotta believe he’ll be asked about Britt and Brady since we’ll see Brady leave the rose ceremony tonight for a chance at Britt. And obviously Chris is aware these two have been spoiled out in public, so it’d be idiotic for him not to address it. I saw one interview where he said the “Bachelorette” that’s not chosen, “doesn’t have a part in the show, but she has a piece of the show.” So there you go. I’m sure we’ll get more as the season continues.

Enjoy tonight. Be back tomorrow with a quicker recap since the episode is only an hour, plus our first “Reader Emails” installment this season.

    “Did he give you soap or tissues?” reason #45378 why I love Kaitlyn.

    I loved loved loved Kaitlyn’s comment about her bird tattoos never being questioned by Farmer Chris. What kind of dumb bunny doesn’t ask a date about the meaning behind a couple of very obvious tattoos?

    By the way, those tattoos are God awful.

  5. jest002

    May 19, 2015 at 12:42 PM

    Ha, soap or tissues was one of the best lines of the night.

    I honestly wonder how Kaitlyn will come off as the season progresses.

    They’ve managed to leave Britt neutral. Depending on their options, I even wonder if they’d bring her back for her own season of The Bachelorette.

    I’m curious, what do Steve’s sources get out of spilling? Even though I love spoilers, I never really understood it.

    Steve has always said he doesn’t read the comments but he obviously does since he fixed those mistakes now.

  8. cpak258

    May 19, 2015 at 1:07 PM

    Agreed! The soap or tissues comment was hilarious.

    As much as I assumed ABC rigged the votes to be Kaitlyn, I can kind of see last night why Kaitlyn won.

    Britt probably made a better first impression (shes very engaging!), but she talked a lot about marriage and was serious, which probably kind of scared these late 20s bachelors, and Kaitlyn had a little more fun with them and wasn’t so serious.

    I get why Britt did it — every bachelorette before her talks marriage the first night — but this is the first time there was more than one girl and the guys actually had a vote in who they wanted as the bachelorette.

    And let’s be honest, we know the 25 guys did not sign up to find a wife. They all signed up for the adventure and if they end up falling for the bachelorette, thats just a bonus.

  9. vessel

    May 19, 2015 at 1:14 PM

    I’m still not quite over some of the idiotic stuff that came out of Britt’s mouth last night: “This way (2 Bachelorettes) is more organic!” and “We know that this process works!” Okay, organic? Hun, nothing about this franchise is even close to that. Doubtful she knows the word’s meaning if she’s applying it to this method of dating. And secondly, the process works?!?! Incredulous, my jaw hit the floor. Yes, that is why the failure rate is so high, because it works. Maybe just shhhhhhhh.

  10. leeroyjenkins

    May 19, 2015 at 1:16 PM

    Yo Steve, Clint was referring to Billy Madison when he was explaining why he drew the picture.

  11. Sunnyside422

    May 19, 2015 at 1:44 PM

    No brainer why Kaitlyn is Bachelorette. Most of these men (the semi sane ones, I mean) are in it for the fun and adventure as is Kaitlyn. The fact that she is cute and engaging is a plus while Britt is way too serious and dare I say, dull. Just think Britt would be an emotional wreck which translates to high maintenance and what guy wants to deal with that. I picture Britt constantly worrying about her perfect makeup and hair while Kaitlyn just going with the flow.

    Brady at 33 probably does want to settle with someone. He is kinda quiet so he and Britt might fit.

    And of course kudos to Kaitlyn for not settling with just any of the final choices. I wish more of the leads would do that. Good for her. I think she will be entertaining if the guys go along with it too.

    Comical recap Steve! You’re on fire.

  12. purplerayne

    May 19, 2015 at 1:50 PM

    @vessel…well, for the bachelorettes, it has worked out well. 3 marriages out of 10 seasons, and from the 7 that didnt work out, there were a few solid relationships. the need to nitpick what either girl says on camera is ridiculous. you go on tv and talk to the camera, as producers prompt you to say stupid stuff and then tell me how poised you sound. gimme a break.

  13. purplerayne

    May 19, 2015 at 1:52 PM

    Ah, cant wait for the tide to turn on poor Kaitlyn, like it did with Andi, Ashley, Ali etc. Viewers have unrealistic expectations of these leads. ABC better be paying these girls a nice chunk of change for the amount of hate/criticism they will receive in the upcoming days, weeks, months.

  14. angelfish

    May 19, 2015 at 1:57 PM

    Not that it’s even a consideration now, but I think Britt would be fine if SHE was the lead and knew what was going to happen. She became an emotional mess last season when as a contestant, she realized she had no control over anything. Going from contestant to lead is a huge difference, and pretty much everybody on the franchise says that.

    I’m very supportive of Kaitlyn not choosing anybody. Because I don’t believe she’s looking for a husband, her not dragging some guy into a bogus engagement is to her credit.

    But l still don’t see all the superlatives in her that many in “Bachelor Nation” claim to see: wit, intelligence, “realness”, etc. She’s fine, but I think she’s just a 30 year-old woman desperate to find something to keep her entertained for a while. Until the next whatever comes along.

  15. rob22

    May 19, 2015 at 2:06 PM

    It’s pretty sad, I think, when the only thing interesting about the whole show is the drunk guy…… Who seemed to be a plant. I mean, who wears a speedo & especially who brings one along with them (or was given one by a producer)? Seriously. Racers stopped wearing speedos 15 years ago. Do they still sell them? I guess they do. Nobody serious about the show would just happen to have a speedo on them. It had to be a planned stunt, among his other antics. It just didn’t come across to me as just the typical spontaneous combustion of a drunk loser. Seemed like he was playing the role (badly) of the Night 1 drunk guy.

    But, I suppose it’s like every other year. Pretty dull until they cut all the chaff. I can definitely see it shaping up much different than any other Bachelorette since the lead isn’t interested in a long term connection & is more interest in pucking. Although it worked out in a similar way for Jen Scheft, I think her seasons ending was a product of a really weak crop of guys. And maybe it will be the same for Kaitlyn. I mean when Nick starts looking really good for the F2, well, Houston, we have a problem. Kaitlyn’s interested in one guy & the other 24 are fails. Who else we got out there? Oh yeah. Nick.

    @purplerayne what did you think this comments section was for if not to express our reactions to what we see and hear?

    I don’t have any mission to bash Britt, and I have no ill will toward her, I’m simply expressing my opinion which is that she sounded stupid. You don’t think she had months to prepare for the question “what do you think of the 2-Bachelorette format?” And she comes up with “Organic”? Give ME a break. And I actually don’t have to consider how ‘poised’ I’d be in her shoes because I’d never agree to be on this show in the first place. Once you do you have opened yourself up to criticism and public scrutiny. It’s nothing Britt wasn’t aware of when she signed her contract.

  17. coffeeinchicago

    May 19, 2015 at 2:21 PM

    I feel like I have a much different take on this than most.

    The soap and tissues comment was amusing, but ultimately mean spirited. K reminds me A LOT of myself in my mid-twenties… the fun, witty one with a couple ill advised tattoos, free-spirited, never settling on anyone, etc. I was super laissez faire about dating and sex and could have spewed every one of K’s one liners myself. The problem was that it was a defensive mechanism, and it came from a place of deep, deep insecurity and an overwhelming need to be liked. I have seen this in Kaitlyn since the beginning, (Farmer Chris himself being a perfect example… that wasn’t about Chris. That was about needing to be special and chosen)… but it really showed through last night.

    Everyone accuses Britt of acting, but I think K is the one really putting it on. Definitely curious to see how this season plays out.

    May 19, 2015 at 3:17 PM

    Vessel – for what it’s worth, the girls had about 5-7 whirlwind days to think about how they would answer any questions, between the time they were told there would be 2 bachelorettes and the 1st night of filming. During those days they were doing photo shoots, promo videos, meeting with producers, making life arrangements for the next 2 months, and countless things that we can’t think of. It’s your right to bash whoever rubs you the wrong way but try to stay reasonably close to the facts.

  19. vessel

    May 19, 2015 at 3:35 PM

    Oh brother. You’re right of course, she didn’t know for months in advance it was a 2-bachelorette format. It was days. How insensitive of me not to have more sympathy for Britt and all the stress she was under.

    In any case it’s the same whirlwind of events for every Bachelor/ette and I cannot recall in recent memory any other lead making such dopey observations but then again I’ve seen some of Britt’s followers comments. That girl could get caught kicking puppies and her fans would find a way to excuse her for it.

    My apologies.

  20. ameliac70

    May 19, 2015 at 3:45 PM

    @smithyeni Kirk was on Ali’s season and one of the BPs. I think he was/is a personal trainer. Gee how original!

    @vessel I totally agree. That pointless babbling about the process really working or whatever nonsensical way she phrased it was embarrassing. She needs to know when to just stop talking.

    Speaking of which- Whoever mentioned Britt overtalking people I noticed it too. She wants you to think she’s totally engaged and really hearing you but I think what she’s really doing is waiting to talk, and if she can’t wait she’ll just start yakking away.

    I know editing plays into this a lot, but it did not portray Britt in a positive light the way she kept indirectly slamming Kaitlyn in her ITM’s. You can explain your viewpoint about finding a partner/love without unfavorably comparing someone else to you. Plus I agree with Steve, ‘you snooze you lose’. No one told her she couldn’t check in with the guys mid way through. Make your own rules and stop whining about it. On a positive note I loved Britt’s dress 🙂

  21. purplerayne

    May 19, 2015 at 3:52 PM

    @vessel – yes the comments section is to make comments, observations…but they dont necessarily need to be petty or completely miss the mark. example: you cant recall the last time a lead made dopey observations…really? the entire franchise is full of leads saying dumb stuff. the fact that you are zeroing in on that comment from Britt just tells me you really want to find something to criticize. Lame.

  22. ameliac70

    May 19, 2015 at 3:56 PM

    Meant to mention-anyone notice the montages they put together of both girls were a nothing but a collection of their least flattering moments from last season? What is that supposed to prove? That Kaitlyn has a potty mouth and Britt has no control of her emotions? I don’t really understand the need for that.

  23. vessel

    May 19, 2015 at 4:08 PM

    @purplerayne Got it. You’re a Britt fan. Forgive me if I don’t check with you in the future on whether or not you agree with my opinion before I post it.

    For the record the moment Kaitlyn (or anyone else in their position) says anything that stupid I’ll be the first to call her on it. I’m an equal opportunity criticizer when it comes to this show. But then again the sensitivity level in this comments section is so freaking high I might think twice. Yikes.

    omg I just got the soap or tissues thing that Kaitlyn said…..cuz Britt doesn’t shower lol.

    I must admit Britt looked good on the premiere…cuz someone else did her hair and make up. Otherwise she is back to her tacky make up and clothes again (Ryan Seacrest show). I’m so glad she’s not the bachelorette. I’m not a big fan of Kaitlyn either but Britt is so fake and annoying to me that it makes Kaitlyn look good despite the tattoos and promiscuity.

    The Brady guy seems really nice. Kind of looking forward to their encounter…Britt looked so sad….kind of romantic if he can cheer her up.

    Kaitlyn slept with Chris Soules, and them old bags on discussion forums over at ABC can’t figure it out…some are so stoooopid.

    Yeah, or maybe she grabbed one of the 25 guys on her season last night and had a little mattress mambo in the garden and now confessing to them all….lmao Old bags are going crazy but who who could it be, just who and how afwul…….and JP once again being crucified for nailing Claire, yet Claire wanted it as much as he….duh

    Britt needs a stylist. That silver disco jacket she wore on Kimmel was hideous. She is a beautiful girl with zero sense of style.
    Even though I’m “team Kaitlyn” I have to admit her bird tats are very ugly, and also not stylish. Plus, she admits to sleeping with Nick before the fantasy suite dates? Why? Some things are better off left to the viewers imagination. Deny, deny, deny. I’m loosing interest in this season already. Yuck.

  29. nesai

    May 20, 2015 at 1:46 AM

    Haha Kaitlyn derseves all the backlash and guys leaving her. I knew she was “the cool girl”. Guys expect her to give it up and she sure did not hold back. Lol all you Kaitlyn fans calling her classy. Come on she barely knows all the guys. Steve saying he’s proud of her for being real and not choosing anyone. That’s funny. If you were serious about finding a husband you wouldn’t sleep around with every piece of meat out there. Not surprised why only two stayed for her at the end. I knew she was going to be a train wreck. That’s entertainment for you, but the kind of entertainment you would rather watch on MTV. The Bachelorette is supposed to be serious about finding love. You want to see a love story unfold. Kaitlyn’s so fake.

    @vessel I think you might be the worst bullsh*ter I’ve ever come across on the internet like your theories and analysis of why you hate Britt so much are just…wow and the best part is when you are called out for it you go all mother Theresa like oh I don’t wish her ill will, you do, you have since Chris Soules season, when they announced the two bachelorettes and even now so cut the mother Theresa crap. But welldone on being an Internet bully (clapping hands emoji)

    I JUST LOVE how when this dual bachelorette was announced people were on some Britt is childish she’s not ready for a husband and children she’s just gonna hook up with everyone, we are not gonna get a love story If she’s the bachelorette she’s blah just doing this for fame blah blah even Chris Soules said that Kaitlyndeserved it more because she was ready for commitment and a family and everyone was like …Woohoo yeah go Chris even Chris is on team Kaitlyn.

    THEN COMES SHOWTIME: stories about Kaityn hooking up with a random guy at an after party, the whole flirting with and talking to Nick thing prior to shooting for Bachelorette, her interview with Ryan Seacrest which clearly shows she’s a casual sex type of girl and then her admitting to sleeping with one of the guys before the fantasy suit which fine like it’s her life she’s a grown woman and if it empowers her and liberates her then home girl can go wild)

    MY PROBLEM: now team kaitlyn is like oh wow Britt was too serious omg she was talking about kids the first night…aaaw kaitlyn is the fun and outgoing she’s not taking this too seriously oh she can hookup with as many guys like we are super cool with that… we did not bash hate and acuse Britt for the things that Kaitlyn is doing now Britt would have been boring because she wanted a husband and these guys are young etc etc

    HOW FVCKING HYPOCRITICAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bahahahahahahahahaha my faith in humanity is lost ah wreck me

    Look, as a guy, I’m always going to think Britt was the better choice. A classic beauty who can pull off the acting part required. Yeah, of course, it’s fake, just like Andi was. But it works. Kaitlyn is not fake. Part of that is not knowing when to keep her pie hole shut. She’s coming across trashier by the day. Now, for the show, that could be very entertaining. I root for train wrecks & if the guys start to get frustrated with her sleeping around the entire cast & bail, that could be fun, kinda like JP Blow’s season. Great drama possibilities. Probably that’s what generates the “Full Meznick”.

    (Remembering to create a paragraph) But, I do wonder, because a lot of the show’s fans are crazies that believe the romantic premise…. whether this season becomes a parody of itself. Does the “Burning Love” aspect becomes reality this season? Does that push the show over the edge? Is this the Jump the Shark moment where the crazies see the show for what it is & stop watching? I guess we’ll see. There’s no doubt that the show is evolving from even pretending to be serious about love. I mean, they at least used to wink at the premise of romance & the potential of marriage. Kaitlyn’s throwing that premise right out the window. She’s saying that nah, it’s about fame, fun, travel & hookups you silly crazy people.

    Since I usually agree with vessel’s comments, calm down, veno! Wow! You might want to stop watching and reading things that get you so heated. It’s silly to get so bent out of shape over a stupid train wreck of a TV show. I, too, find Kaitlyn a lot more likeable than Britt, but I don’t know either one, so who the heck really cares? IMO, Kaitlyn seems real and Britt is annoying.

    I think I’m close to being done with the show. I forgot it started this week, haven’t watch either night yet and really don’t even care. I probably will, but it sure doesn’t interest me like it used to.

    No one’s faith in humanity should be based on a mostly-scripted reality show that thrives off drama…. I think Britt is probably a really great person, but I’m pumped for Kaitlyn because I think it will be a really entertaining season. Her commentary on the bachelor was spot on.

    Britt’s season may have been better in the sense that she probably would have left engaged and had more serious conversations, but that’s not really why we watch…. we watch for the entertainment/drama.

    Thank you @veno!! The blatant hypocrisy sucks. Also, Kaitlyn fans are saying kaitlyn is “more real” because she picks no one, but if Britt had gotten the gig and didn’t pick a guy she’d be labeled a “phoney”. Everyone’s free to have their own opinion but the obvious hypocrisy/double standard is unfortunate.

    I don’t like Kaitlyn’s tattoos either…some people can get away with tattoos looking good but I don’t like those on her at all.

    I’m team Kaitlyn over Britt but honestly neither of them is all that classy. Britt has zero sense of style..she looked good yesterday but if she were chosen as the bachelor the next day she would’ve been dressed like a silly 12 year old again…I really wonder what Brady is thinking right now.

    and I’m getting concerned with Kaitlyn…is she a s**t?

    Not that it matters, but if Britt were the lead, she’d have a stylist just like the other Bachelorettes have had. They usually get to keep most of the clothes too, according to Jillian and Emily.

    Yes nora. The “s” word (shhhhhh) applies. Hey, it is what it is, but you’d think since this is her second go round on the show, she’d keep things more on the down low & avoid the online beatings. I think she’s been encouraged to “keep it real” by the show & the fans (who like her that way) and so she thinks it’s smart and cool to keep her comments and actions unfiltered. Bad decision. Social media is going to get ugly.

    Oh no I think I may be falling for the teasers 😮

    Seriously did she sleep with someone? The issue isn’t that if she did she is a slut, its more that these guys are all here playing this game for her, and to “give it up” to one of them in the middle of the process is insulting. I sure would feel like I was wasting my time, and I would be embarrassed to be someones seconds..

    I think that’s the issue here.

    @veno as soon as I see your name on here I always know that the comment to follow will be a bunch of childish, bitching, ranting nonsense. Thanks for never letting me down 🙂

    And as karynr said, yes, please calm the f down.

    Ok I think we should stop with the slut-shaming.. Everyone goes into the show assuming the lead is going to sleep with 3 of the guys at the fantasy suite, so if the guys aren’t okay with that, they shouldn’t go on the show… and since it was Nick, and he goes to the fantasy suite, she still sleeps with no more than any other bachelorette… so lets not get our panties in a bunch..

    Plus, did we all forget about Ben and Courtney in the ocean, Juan Pablo and Claire in the ocean?? both of those happened before the fantasy suite dates and they just hid it from the rest of the girls…. at least Kaitlyn admits to it…

    @cpak258 agree 100%. I also thought of Ben the minute they showed that preview.

    I’m just wondering how she was able to get enough alone time to sleep with Nick and also to feel secure enough that cameras/crew weren’t around. Don’t they say they basically have no privacy at all?

  43. cpak258

    May 20, 2015 at 9:37 AM

    @vessel – agreed, i didn’t think they really got alone time either, but last season they let Chris and Britt take a nap together without cameras, so I’m sure Kaitlyn and Nick were maybe in a similar situation? or when they change going from the day activity to the dinner portion of the date or something, one went into the other’s room. I guess we will find out!

    May 20, 2015 at 10:05 AM

    Last season we had the “sneaking up to Andi’s room” crap with Nick, so it’s probably just more of the same. The camera crew was there too. If the script says “pretend”, then they pretend.

    Again, it has nothing to do with Slut Shaming. You’re on a nationally televised show, so you might want to think about what you’re putting out there. A little discretion goes a long way with the unwashed masses. I think Kaitlyn is confused about “keeping it real” being real cool. It’s not. It’s over-sharing. I’m sure she was encouraged heavily in that direction. But it’s astonishing to me that she’d go on Kimmel & not be prepared to be evasive on any question she didn’t want to answer…. or worse, be OK with putting it out there that she started sleeping with guys before even the Fantasy Suites.

    Well, I said a while back to be prepared for a different “millennial style” Bachelorette this time. That’s exactly what we’re getting.

    Kaitlyn is a fake as it gets. My opinion. She tries so hard to please people. To make people like her. The loudly laughing all the time doesn’t make her funny. She’s not funny. I admit she has better fashion sense than Britt. The only reason I dislike Kaitlyn is her sense of entitlement. Dissing the other. Making Britt a focus throughout her whole season. Always trying to crack jokes about her bringing her down. Until, she does something stupid then need Britt’s help to make her seem all genuine. (Looking at both Kaitlyn and Britt’s social media posts.) Now, that people are bashing her she finally comes out and act like she was friends with Britt. Get real if that didn’t happen she would of stuck to the hate Britt to make herself look better.

    I saw her as a “cool girl” from the start. With her plow my field any day comments. Who wants that as a wife. Honestly, I was her in my twenties. You stop acting that way when you are seriously putting in effort to find someone. Your party hard days are your past. I’m not saying having sex is bad. If she was already seeing Nick before her season. Why come on the bachelorette to find love when you still want to bang the guy you left to be on the bachelorette. If it isn’t for fame. Having him join in mid season is blantly total disrespect for the guys that left their job and kids to court her. I’m not saying all the guys are all serious. Of course some of them are probably in it for fame as well. I’m just saying why waste peoples time and disrespect the guys that are totally in it for her and actually likes her. Unless she started to feel like none of the guys wanted a party girl as a wife and decided to bring Nick in because he’s the one that was genuinely into her.

    I’m gonna feel really sorry for Kaitlyn once the episode of her sleeping with Nick before the FS rolls around. Steve’s prediction of Kaitlyn not getting as much hate this season “because she’s a woman” is going to be proven false, especially when it comes to the sexual aspect of this season. I think Steve really underestimates the wrath of the judgmental women that watch this show. Nick is a weasel, and I feel sorry for any emotional hurt it may cause the other guys. But Kaitlyn was right when she said in the teaser that she doesn’t feel ashamed. She shouldn’t.

    Hello, Steve! I’ve always loved reading your website/spoilers. Great job with everything. Just noticed someone mentioned Chris Harrison likening the girls to fast food places off the Jersey turnpike. He never said that. It was the interview I watched on Tuesday morning on GMA and he was promoting his book. This woman that was sitting next to him (she was very negative and I don’t recall her name) said the comment. He was defending them and saying at least say they’re like a steak house restaurant. Anyway, the woman did not have a likeable personality and kind of was negative with the show. All in all, witnessing Chris on the show, it seems he’s usually a gentleman and respects women. He seems genuinely concerned and listens and seems to handle things professionally. For whatever it’s worth. That guy better get his facts straight. P.S. I hate that Nick comes back! Ewww…how Kaitlyn could stoop so low. Thanks again for all your fun info! Don’t work too hard.
