“Bachelor in Paradise 4” Episode 3 Recap Incl “Bachelor” and “Winter Games” News

-Like, if the “Bachelorette” were the next season to roll around, you’d think by last night’s episode, they’re just prepping for Kristina to be their girl. Geez. Could they have made her any more of a sympathetic figure if they tried? It was basically “feel sorry for Kristina” night because, well, Dean was being a Grade A douchebag. Look, I’m well aware that Dean was probably told by production to present DLo with a half birthday cake, but still, that was ridiculous. Who the f**k celebrates a half birthday? On television. With a cake. When you’re just starting to patch things up with girl #1. Obviously that was done for drama purposes, and really didn’t HAVE to be celebrated, but for TV, it made for the appropriate reaction from Kristina, which is exactly what they wanted.

-They made it seem like that first cocktail party was this giant struggle of who was gonna get whose rose. And maybe there was some question mark behind one guy, but for the most part, exactly who you expected to go home did go home. Robby was the only one you seriously questioned, but c’mon. You think the “Social Media Influencer” came on this show to get eliminated at the first rose ceremony? Please. Robby has some teeth whitening to pimp out. And some athletic wear that’s no different than any of the other 500 brands of athletic clothes you can get. And somewhere down the line, maybe he’ll start shilling guyliner. Or whatever keeps hair poofed to the side in even the worst humidity. Robby is an island unto himself. Just let the guy carry around a mirror the rest of the show and I think the rest of us will be much better off. As will he.

-Speaking of Robby, he and Amanda had a nice little talk at the cocktail party before the rose ceremony. Robby acknowledged that him and Josh were friends, but, that he’d rather call him Anonymous from here on out, and Anonymous already had his chance with her, so now it’s his turn. Soooooo Robby and Josh are now eskimo brothers. Although, Robby and Josh aren’t buds anymore and you can probably guess why. This is pretty much the exact example why there’s zero code when it comes to these people. It doesn’t matter who’s dated who, or who’s slept with who previously, ZERO people are off limits. Even if they’re in relationships. Oh the stories I’ve heard, the DM’s I’ve seen, and the texts I’ve read. And I’d say it’s mostly being done by the guys. They. Have. No. Shame.

-Before the rose ceremony, Dean made sure to track Kristina down to tell her, “Look, we’ve gone from 0-100 so fast. Lets tap the brakes a little bit. But hey, I still like you.” Translation: I’m in Paradise and women love me. If you think for a second I’m putting all my eggs in your basket, you’re crazy. And that just about sums up Dean in a nutshell. How people could even consider him as the next “Bachelor” is beyond me. Sorry people, it’s just not happening. Not just because of what happens on BIP, but just overall he’d be an ever tougher sell to America than Peter would. At least Peter seemingly has his sh** together. Dean is a lost cause. The guy wants his cake and eat it too. DLO, Kristina, others…it doesn’t matter. The guy is enjoying his time playing the field right now, so let him. No need to put him as the “Bachelor.”

-Rose ceremony time, and a lot of these were pretty easy just based on who they showed getting pulled aside during the cocktail party.

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

Your eliminations were: Iggy Rodriguez, Nick Benvenutti, Vinny Venteria, and Alex Woytkiw. Was anyone really disappointed those 4 went home? Didn’t think so. They really only showed Iggy and Alex practically begging for roses at that cocktail party. Nick and Vinny were nowhere to be found trying to pull out any desperation tactics. They will not be missed.

    BIP is normally pretty weak. But, I mean, could they have a MORE self absorbed crowd this season? Not that they aren’t always that way, but this crew is narcissistic X 100. Is there even one down to earth person on this season? I know. That’s not what the show is about, but they usually have a couple of normal people. I guess when you’re building a brand, it’s all about the exposure and controversy. Gotta get eyes on you. Oh, and a few hookups certainly are a nice side benefit. Before and after the show.

    And, why on earth is Amanda Stanton on this show AGAIN? She’s really got the fame w**** bug, doesn’t she?

    I couldn’t agree with you more rob22! I think in general that “Bachelor Nation” is getting pretty insufferable. Who do these people think they are?? And all the girls oohing and ahhing over boring Adam…yikes! And his partner Matt, who got booted the same episode in Rachel’s season. And don’t get me started about Iggy, Diggy and Alex!! And, as far as Amanda Stanton goes, I do not understand what guys see in her…she’s not even what I would call pretty. I have not gotten through one episode in its entirety…what a lame cast!

    Yes, very lame season. BIP should be drunkenness, slutiness, just all out bad behavior. Due to the Pres speech, my recording ended early. I have no plans to watch on demand, what is the point. I know I don’t fully pay attention, but during he rose ceremony, there were people I never saw all episode. jack stone comes to mind, I can’t even remember the others. can we at least get some nudity!

    I think it’s hilarious that Robby really wanted Raven, but she was repulsed by him, so Amanda was his 2nd choice. This has a 25% chance of working in the real world. Also, Amanda & Robby saying his has not met her kids, when they snapped her kids walking Robby’s dog and he was at their apt. She is one dumb bunny & so disgusting, fake & plastic looking.

    What a snoozefest. Except Taylor and Derek, none of these couples are even half way believable.

    No one is getting the ‘pre bachelor lead’ edit on paradise. What are your thoughts on canning Bachelor all together skip straight to Bachelorette and Raven our lead?

    Geez the Kristina or DLo thing is the choice between classy or trashy. Why does DLo look like she just brought the clearance rack from Charlotte Russe?? I’ve seen her in pictures and thought she was gorgeous, but didn’t realize she acted like a ditz since I didn’t watch Nick’s season. I do love how she and others acknowledged how terrible Nick V was. An “A” for honesty!!

    Can’t agree more with rob22. Raven should be Bachelorette. As far as being the Bachelor, won’t doubt they will keep trying with Peter, as RS stated. I would prefer Ben Zorn or Eric Bigger as Bachelor though, Peter talks in that monotone voice. Not to mention, Peter won’t propose to the final pick.

    Oh, or the Russian Alex from Rachel’s season (not the whiny one from Jojo’s).

    After Rachel let Dean go, I thought I’d love to see him become the next Bachelor…but watching him on BIP is cringe-worthy. Yikes! So immature. Tis’ a pity. I’d vote for the Russian Alex too!

    I emailed this to RS awhile ago, but I’m putting it out there again since I’d bet money at least a few Producers read this site. Marcus of Marcus and Lacy. He’s hot and he’s an easy sell to the audience. He’s already found love and “married” through the show – the narrative of their break-up puts Lacy as the one who left him, so he gets to be the wounded victim who knows this process works, but this time he can vet the woman more. It would be perfect.

    Marcus as Bach is a terrible idea which would never happen in a million years. He’s not that hot and he has no personality.

    I think the whole Demario and Corinne thing was a huge big scam put up by ABC because both Corinne and Demario were disliked by the other contestants on The Show. Demario was disliked because he had gone on another show with an existing girlfriend and Corinne was disliked because she was too full of herself, promiscuous and appearing to promote herself on TV. The producers decide that they are going to encourage the couple to be together and feed them plenty of alcohol and this in turn results in both of them resorting to type. Whether anything happened that was consented to or not is debatable but the producers watching the rushes a day later decided that the thing to do would be shut down production and make a big thing about what did or didn’t happen. The couple are interviewed by ABC and the producers decide nothing happened and there is no further cause for action. What has happened is that now it is all over the (breaking) news and all over the Internet and this has helped promote the program which was what ABC wanted from the start this. This is very peculiar behavior from ABC and producers who are quick to cover up a tiny bit of butt crack or cleavage with a black box just just so they don’t upset the audience and get accused of showing too much flesh WTF!
    The whole episode is a scam to get more viewers and sell more advertising space!
    I for one am glad we can skip through the ads especially the ones for viagra cialis and other prescription meds!

    Why in the world would the ABC scam their ONLY two interesting characters off the show because the other cast didn’t like them? Drama is the whole point…

    I agree with allaboutme, Marcus would be a far better Bachelor to watch than Peter, Eric or Dean.

    What’s all the hoopla about Peter. He comes across as a bore and somewhat depressed. Anybody would be better than Peter. Hope he gets therapy.
