Bachelor in Paradise 4 Spoilers

The “Bachelorette” Rachel Epsiode 7 Mini-Recap & Your “Bachelor in Paradise” Episode-by-Episode Spoilers

A little bit lighter again on the recap this week for two reasons: 1) Your “Bachelor in Paradise” spoilers are finally here! And 2) The episode was boring a f**k. Sorry. It just was. There was no drama, no suspense, we all knew what was coming, and at this point, I think even every unspoiled person out there knows this is a two man race to see who wins between Peter and Bryan. The haters are still praying that I was played and that Peter is actually the winner. And people with half a brain realize that they should probably listen to the updated spoiler from over a month ago and realize that Rachel is engaged to Bryan. Again, not much else I can tell ya’ in regards to why the spoiler was wrong for 3 weeks, but just know it was, it was corrected, I’m thankful it was corrected, and her with Bryan makes a TON of more sense. But hey, they’ll try and sell you a bill of goods as much as they can up until that final day making you think it’ll be Peter in the end, but you saw the cracks forming last night. He’s not the one unfortunately Peter fans. You’re gonna have to pin your hopes that he’ll take the “Bachelor” gig at this point. He checks off every box for them. I know they want him, and I’m assume he wants it too. We’re still over a month away from the official announcement but I’d be pretty shocked if he doesn’t take the gig.

So I’ve changed it up this week on the podcast. I told you it was coming at some point, but for the first time since I started the podcast 7 months ago, we don’t have a “Bachelor” franchise contestant as the guest. My guest this week is comedian Heather McDonald. You know her from being a writer and a panelist on “Chelsea Lately” along with her Netflix/Showtime stand up special “Heather McDonald: I’m Not Here To Brag.” I actually am on Heather’s “Juicy Scoop” podcast today that you can listen to here:

So I figured if Heather had me on, I’d have her on. Two completely different interviews. Loved talking to Heather about her career. We get into the Chelsea Handler controversy, we talk about her upbringing, and I even get her to do a few of her famous impressions. I loved doing this interview and I hope you like it so look for it on Thursday. Next week, back to the “Bachelor” franchise as a somewhat polarizing figure from the past will be my guest. This will be interesting for sure.

Speaking of podcasts, those that missed it on my Twitter feed Friday, I gave my thoughts in regards to Nick appearing on Juliet Litman’s podcast last week. Here’s the interview link:

Look, I honestly don’t have much of a problem with what Nick said overall. I didn’t think he was that harsh on me. However, he’s 100% wrong saying I harassed his dad. I definitely take issue with that. Since he’s airing out, let me tell you what actually happened. While Andi’s season was filming, Nick’s dad contacted ME first. Basically their family was very naïve to the process and didn’t know what to expect. All I did was fill his dad in on things, which is ironic, because one of the things I told him was about producer manipulation and just be prepared for how they can make anyone look on this show, including his son. Think Nick got the greatest edit on Andi’s season? No. So what I told him ended up being true. But I absolutely never harassed that guy about anything. I even went back and looked over all the emails me and Chris Viall had in 2014. It was about as tame and innocent as you can get. So I don’t know what Chris told Nick, or if Nick misinterpreted things, but I have all the emails. There was no harassment whatsoever, so just wanted to make that clear.

Nick and I have differing opinions on this show. I agree with a lot of what he says. There’s some stuff I disagree with too. And that’s fine. My biggest regret in anything I’ve ever reported about Nick was having that Abby girl on my podcast back in December. At the time, I believed it to be legit, but when three people came to me afterwards explaining what a nut job she was (Nick covered this in his podcast with Juliet), then I knew she was cray cray. At the time, all I did was ignore it. I never brought her up again or gave any credence to what she said. So if makes him or anyone happy, I actually deleted that podcast over the weekend. There’s no point to leave it up. So my apologies to Nick on that one. Everything else I’ve ever reported about the guy, I stand by 100%. My job is to cover the “Bachelor” franchise. I’m going to have opinions about everyone on this show. That’s what I do. I’m allowed to have opinions on people I haven’t met. His stance that basically people shouldn’t have opinions on people they haven’t met is kinda ridiculous. That’s basically what all of the internet is. If you don’t like it, don’t put yourself out there. Not to mention, I know things about people that help me form those opinions. I’m not just spouting off based on what I see on TV. I’d say my opinions are based in a little more truth, no? Nick is a lightning rod in this franchise. So of course I’m gonna have more opinions and things about him than say, oh I don’t know, someone who was eliminated episode 2. He’s got to develop a thicker skin is basically what it comes down to.

You see that Rachel was part of the MLB Celebrity Softball Game at All-Star weekend in Miami? You know, Bryan lives in Miami don’t you? Just sayin’. I have no idea if they secretly met up or not, but I wouldn’t put it past them if I did. I find it hard to believe they wouldn’t have at some point.

For today’s poll question, what do you think of Rachel and Peter’s connection now?

    It looked to me like Peter is not over the ex girlfriend. He cried when he talked about her.

    Agree completely. He seemed too upset about it still.

    Rachel keeps talking about Bryan being “too good to be true”. Well, if by that she means that he’s got a smooth line for every situation, she’s right. Too bad she doesn’t realize she’s getting Jef Holm 2.0. But what do you expect at this point in the show’s progression? They’ve all got agendas. Bryan’s just happens to be fame & a notch on his belt during the overnights.

    This season is boring, and whoever was in charge of casting the men needs to be fired. Seriously, so boring, mostly because thee is so litle chemistry between Rachel and most guys. And that is the real drama I want to see. I want to see her with real chemistry with 3 guys or so, see them squirm over it, let it cause natural drama, and watch that.

    Instead it is the Bryan show, the guys know it, the guys hate it and are sort of checking out over it, and Bryan is so swarmy it is hard to root for them. Seriously, she made a really poor choice. The guy is a chump.

    Also, crazy to me that Rachel’s parents put her in an All Black school through high school, and she is still gonna end up with a cheesy white guy, not a solid one. Damn, some plans just don’t work.

    Peter’s break-up story was an attempt on his part to audition for The Bachelor. I don’t understand why people don’t like Bryan. He’s sexxxy and he has a sexxxy voice, too! He’s obviously so into Rachel and she can see it. That’s what she wants from a guy – that take charge confidence and 100% dedication to her. She’s always making the first move with Peter. For a smart, strong woman like she is in the workplace, I’m sure she wants to give up some of that control in the bedroom and not always have to take the lead. That’s what Bryan offers and it’s super attractive. Those two put a smile on my face when they’re together, not that I believe they’ll get married – maybe, maybe not. Peter’s too laid back. Also, why was Peter’s hair salt and pepper in the snow but darker at dinner? Did he do a Grecian Formula before dinner or was that snow/ice in his hair? I can’t wait to see Dean’s father. He looks like a whack job! LOL Poor Dean, who looks like Mr. Preppy.

    Oh, I don’t think Rachel went to an all-black school. She said it was a small, private, co-ed school. When she was talking to Will and he was telling her he grew up in a white area and went to school with mostly whites and that’s why he hadn’t dated many black women, Rachel told him that she’d had the same experience but had been able to find black men to date. That’s what I thought I heard, anyway.

    Rachel went to a small private school that is about 35% black I would estimate–I was a teacher there. She even mentioned to Will that even though she went to a predominately white school, she was able to find opportunities to date back men.

    Also, you are correct that Bryan is white but this is referring to his race. He is Latino and many latinos culturally don’t call themselves “white”

    I do agree that this is not at all interesting this season. My wife fell asleep during the last episode, unfortunately I did not. She asked what she missed & I told her absolutely nothing. This episode had no drama or anything of interest. Even without the spoilers, 95% of us could have predicted what happened. I realize that Dean has a nut job Dad for the overnights entertainment. I have to wonder, though, whether the producers dressed him in the Merlin costume, or at least whether the guy is playing a role to gain attention himself. I was expecting some guy with a gray haired pony tail or man bun. Maybe living in a tiny house and offering up a vegan dinner. And since it’s Colorado, possibly lighting up a blunt after dinner. But, come on. Where do you even find an outfit like that? It comes right out of central casting. I think they literally borrowed it from the Lord of the Rings set. If that was for real, the meds are not working. But, I don’t believe it for a minute.

  10. ladyjane747

    I think part of the reason why the most recent episode was a little dull is because of the guys she kept – Matt and can’t-even-remember-his name. The audience was not invested in these two at all. If she had kept Alex around – funny, attractive, interesting or Will – smart, attractive, a good foil for Rachel or Josiah – a cocky character who get get a rise out of Rachel it might’ve been more interesting when she let them go.

    So Bryan is sexy as hell, but his “smooth lines” come off sounding sleazy. Also his kisses are gross, but I guess she likes it. I get why she would want to date him but marry him? I find it hard to believe he’s more into her than into himself looking smooth. I do not understand why she’d keep those boring white guys around, and let some others go like the Russian and the horseback riding date guy. I mean at least there seemed to be some level of chemistry there. The other two #5 and #6 guys were basically filler. I still love her though!

    The whole bachelor /Bachelorette franchise reminds me of highschool. You’ve always got that one group of guys and one group of girls who all share each other. Sleep with each other, get tired of one move on to the next in the group then recycle.

  13. jlal

    I agree Peter does not seem that into her. About some of the guys being boring, I wonder if they just are not getting a good edit. There are some every season that you never see or hear much about, most likely because they’re focusing on the “bad” boy or girl too much.

    ladyjane747: “Also, why was Peter’s hair salt and pepper in the snow but darker at dinner? Did he do a Grecian Formula before dinner or was that snow/ice in his hair?”

    The date was literally taking place within a cloud at sub-freezing temperatures. The very fine water droplets within the cloud condensed as fine ice particles on Peter’s hair. If you’ve ever gone swimming at an outdoor hot spring pool on a cold winter day, you may have experienced something similar.

    I find all these final guys cheesy and undesirable. I wouldn’t date any of them. I like a manly man and these guys are all too feminine for me. My gaydar is sounding. Bryan, nope, just not buying what he’s selling. I don’t find him sexy or appealing. I felt really bad for Dean during his hometown. I could tell how embarrassed he was. What a whack job that daddy is. Bryans mommy, o heck No! Wouldn’t be caught dead trying to compete with that clincher. Not impressed all around and frankly, I’m disappointed in Rachel’s choices.

  16. upmyalley

    July 17, 2017 at 8:08 PM

    I meant Bryans mom is a clinger.

  17. yoyotono

    July 17, 2017 at 10:23 PM

    I think Eric should be the Bachelor, I’m a fan. I like all of Rachel’s final 3 guys. I just hope she doesn’t get played by Bryan.

    I so agree! Brian gets a little more sleazy each episode! I haven’t been this disappointed in a spoiler since Emily chose Jef, with one F!
