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

“Bachelor in Paradise 4” Spoilers

-The show started filming June 3rd before stopping filming on June 5th for the DeMario/Corinne incident. Filming resumed on June 24 and completed on July 4th. I’m assuming we will get the first three days of filming as part of this season (because it had three 1-on-1 dates in it), but nothing’s confirmed as of yet. I just can’t imagine they just completely disregard those first three days. So in total, the show had 14 days of filming, which is only 4 days less than it normally films for. It was filmed at the same location as the last two seasons, Playa Escondida in Sayulita, Mexico.

-Not counting DeMario and Corinne, there are 30 different former contestants who appear at some point this season. Last season had 30, the season before had 29. Season 1 had 25.

-To break it down even further, 21 of the 30 were from the two most recent seasons that aired, Nick and Rachel’s. 12 of Nick’s girls and 9 of Rachel’s guys.

-As reported here first, Wells was the bartender for the duration of the show. He didn’t go on any dates.

-Carly and Evan’s wedding was filmed June 17th. It will air at some point during this BIP season. I’m sure ABC will make an announcement in the future as to when it’ll be.

-When they returned to film after the break for the investigation, the show started with 8 girls and 11 guys. They were:

Danielle Maltby (Nick’s season)
Raven Gates (Nick)
Alexis Waters (Nick)
Lacey Mark (Nick)
Kristina Schulman (Nick)
Taylor Nolan (Nick)
Jasmine Goode (Nick)
Amanda Stanton (Ben’s season & BIP 3)

Original Cast Guys:

Vinny Ventiera (JoJo’s season & BIP 3)
Alex Woytkiw (JoJo)
Robby Hayes (JoJo)
Nick “St. Nick” Benvenutti (JoJo)
Derek Peth (JoJo)
Iggy Rodriguez (Rachel’s season)
Jack Stone (Rachel)
Kenneth “Diggy” Moreland (Rachel)
Matt Munson (Rachel)
Dean Unglert (Rachel)
Ben Zorn (Kaitlyn’s season)

So everybody that was there when filming was halted came back, sans DeMario and Corinne.

Before filming was stopped, I had already told you of 3 dates that took place:

-Kristina with Dean
-Robby with Raven
-Matt and Jasmine

The DeMario/Corinne incident took place on day 1, but filming was halted and everyone was sent home right before the first rose ceremony took place. When everyone returned to Mexico, they all had a sit down and talk with Chris Harrison about the incident, the new “rules” were explained (only 2 drinks an hour, both parties have to inform producers if they are going to spend the night together in the same room), and this talk went on for hours. It’s possible the talk with Chris will be it’s own episode. Not much is known how the format of the show will work or what will air, but I’m guessing we’ll see all their arrivals and those three dates that took place before filming got shut down, we’ll see everyone arrive back in Mexico, then the group sit down with Chris Harrison. Consensus seemed to be that the cast felt bad for both parties involved, but definitely more on DeMario’s side in that they didn’t feel he did anything wrong.

It’s tough to say how many episodes are going to air and if it’s still going to air over 6 weeks, so all I’m doing is labeling each “episode” by it’s rose ceremony since they love doing “To Be Continued’s…” and stuff like that. So I’ll just break everything down by rose ceremonies.

The next day, Adam Gottschalk (Rachel’s season) arrived, and went on a date with Raven. This one:

Also, Derek went on a date with Taylor

Rose Ceremony #1: (Women giving out roses)

Jasmine gave her rose to Matt
Raven to Adam
Alexis to Jack
Lacey to Diggy
Kristina to Dean
Danielle to Ben Z.
Amanda to Robby
Taylor to Derek

Eliminated this episode: Vinny Venteria, Alex Woytkiw, Iggy Rodriguez, and Nick Benvenutti.

Rose Ceremony #2: (Women asking dates, Men giving out roses)

Women (12): Jasmine, Raven, Alexis, Lacey, Kristina, Danielle, Amanda, and Taylor. The four women entering are: Danielle Lombard (Nick’s season), Sarah Vendal (Nick), Christen Whitney (Nick), Dominique Alexis (Nick).
Men (8): Matt, Adam, Jack, Diggy, Dean, Ben Z., Robby, and Derek.


DLo with Dean
Sarah with Adam
Christen with Matt
Dominique with Diggy

This is the episode where the Dean/Kristina/DLo love triangle essentially begins. Dean basically likes both of them. Was with Kristina from the word go, they spent time together after filming was stopped, they go back to film, DLo arrives, they go on a date and, well, all hell breaks loose. This will be the biggest drama of the season.

Danielle Maltby left during this episode because she had an opportunity to go to Africa for some charity work. She’s been posting about this on her social media ever since she left.

Rose Ceremony: Daniel Maguire (JoJo’s season, BIP 3) arrived at the rose ceremony. Talked to people at the cocktail party, then gave out his rose.

Jack gave his rose to Christen
Robby to Amanda
Diggy to Dominique
Dean to Kristina
Ben Z. to DLo
Adam to Raven
Derek to Taylor
Daniel to Lacey
Matt left at the cocktail party, then came back to the rose ceremony and gave his rose to Jasmine, then left the show for good. Not sure of the reason why.

Eliminated this episode: Danielle Maltby left during the episode for a charity trip in Africa. Alexis Waters and Sarah Vendal don’t get roses at the rose ceremony.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
