The Bachelorette 14 - Becca

The “Bachelorette” Becca Episode 2 Recap, Garrett’s Apology, & the Fan Appreciation Party This Weekend

-Lets be honest, not a whole hell of a lot happened on Blake and Becca’s 1-on-1 in terms of anything to dissect. They smashed a bunch of sh*t from her relationship with Arie, Lil Jon rapped during it, then they had dinner together to talk about Blake’s ex. So in case you missed it on Twitter last night, when Blake was talking about his ex that kinda broke up with him out of the blue, I tweeted this out:

Here was the video that went along with that, as Annie posted this in February of last year when Blake helped her move to CA:

Then Annie’s friend replied to my tweet after she saw what I wrote:

I think Kayce may have misunderstood or maybe didn’t get what I was tweeting. I was saying that Annie scrubbed Blake off her IG since there’s zero pictures of him there, and I’m guessing she did that because she has a new boyfriend. I’m agreeing with Kayce. She’s moved on, so yeah, no real need to keep pics of Blake up. I was just surprised there’s still a few up of Blake on her Twitter, but I guess she didn’t assume someone would go back 15 months on her Twitter to find it. I didn’t. Someone sent me the link. There’s another picture on there of her FaceTiming Blake. By the time you see this, she might’ve already taken it down.

Ooooooohhhh sexy time. Yeah, I guarantee these won’t be up on her Twitter much longer.

-Lets just get right to the dodgeball date. Two teams of five are first going to meet Becca, then get coached by some little kids. Colton has an interesting line when seeing Becca for the first time. “Is it weird to say a woman smelled good?” Huh? You think that’s weird to say a woman smelled good, Colton? That’s like one of the most underrated things about a woman you could ask for. I’m not sure who he’s dated or chased after (well, besides Aly Raisman and Savannah Chrisley), but has he never told ANY girl he’s EVER been with that they smell good? And Colton’s a virgin? Hmmmmm, maybe things are starting to add up now.

-After the Leo revelation over the weekend, I just can’t take him seriously anymore. “High Heel Homicide” is out there on the internet. And it’s free. It’s so bad, I wouldn’t even put it on my resume if I were him. And the fact that they cast a guy like that, not that you need any reminder after 36 seasons of this show, but pretty much confirms they aren’t casting the 28 most perfect guys for Becca. They’re casting a TV show with a bunch of different characters. And this season just so happens to have a dude that put a sock on it and simulates sex with another woman on camera all for the sake of the craft. Pretty embarrassing.

-Where does one go from there in the soft core porn industry? And it’s not like Leo did this 5 years ago or something when he was just coming up in the business. No pun intended. The film was released last year. So what’s next? Does he become the infamous pizza guy who shows up at the door and all the sudden is in the middle of a threesome? I don’t know what his acting aspirations are after this, but I’m guessing he hasn’t aimed real high. And by the way, did anyone bother to inform Kendall about this? I know she’s quirky and all, but I’m sorry, the guy does cheesy Skinemax flicks and claims because it has a plot it’s legit. Not sure about that one, buddy. Keep telling yourself that. Lets just say he won’t be living this one down all season.

-The dodgeball game, although I reported back when it happened was dominated by the green team, all we saw was Leo taking balls to his face. No pun intended. We never see any footage of why the Pink Flaminbros sucked so bad. Just that Leo was always the only one left standing for his team, and just taking it on the chin numerous times. No pun intended. The Green Frogs ended up winning the trophy that day, but it wasn’t something that really mattered, since both teams ended up going to the after party. Becca didn’t pull an Arie and change her mind only to set Krystal off on a crazy rant. Both teams were always going to the after party, so it really didn’t matter who won. And when did Fred Willard sign a lifetime contract with this franchise? We really gonna see him every season now? Geez, it’s overkill at this point.

-The after party is up next, and we see her time with Garrett first because of course. Tells her that anytime he has with her is valuable time. He can tell she likes to laugh a lot like he does and basically sees her as the girl version of himself. Hmmmm, not so sure about that. While it’s obvious you two get along, you’re engaged, she’s still very happy (as she reiterated again on Kimmel last night), I’m guessing the last week or so wasn’t the easiest time on their relationship for the sole reason she’s NOT the female version of him. At least in certain viewpoints. But hey, they’re gonna give it the ol’ college try so lets see how it all plays out. They have just as much a chance as any other couple from this show. Major hurdle to start out with no doubt, looks like they’ve moved past it, so lets see it develop from here.

-Colton is nervous to talk to Becca because he hasn’t told her about his pre-show relationship with Tia. Admits that they spent a weekend in January (spoiled here two months ago), the timing wasn’t right, and the spark didn’t lead to a flame. Translation: Once I found out she wasn’t gonna be the “Bachelorette,” I was out. The timing of the whole thing is completely shady for me to buy what Colton is selling. Becca wasn’t named the Bachelorette at that point. We don’t know what weekend in January he was talking about. Hell, it’s possible it was still while Becca and Arie were still engaged. Tia didn’t do anything wrong. But when he dates Tia, then says it didn’t develop, and two months later he’s showing up on Becca’s season, how do you NOT question those intentions? Did he dump Tia BECAUSE she wasn’t the “Bachelorette?” Certainly some people feel that way. Regardless, it looks shady on his part, no matter how he spins it. And Becca doesn’t know how she feels about it yet. Yeah, neither do I because I can’t believe she didn’t know.

-Look, I know girls share a lot with each other. And as mentioned in the spoilers yesterday, Tia, Becca, and Caroline were all down in Florida in February the weekend before Tia and Caroline flew to LA for the WTA. At no point during that weekend was it ever brought up that Tia was/had casually been seeing a guy named Colton? Never? I mean sure it’s possible, I just don’t think it’s probable. What if Tia told her about a dude named Colton, it fizzled and it was over, and Becca never put 2 and 2 together that the Colton Tia dated in January was this Colton now on her season? Again, possible, but not probable in my mind. She HAD to have known or heard about him before Colton sat down and told her. Becca leaves that convo not knowing what to do with Colton. Translation: You’re hot and I want to keep you around, but because of this, I have to be contemplative on TV. I’m a huge Becca fan. I thought her looks last night were straight fire. But I tweeted it out at the time I broke the news back in April, I think this particular decision to keep Colton around doesn’t reflect great on Becca. Sure, doesn’t matter in the long run that she’s engaged to Garrett now, but, how was she cool with that whole situation, and did she really like Colton THAT much to overlook it?

    Okay, here is what I don’t understand with RS’s comments. He always goes on about people taking this show seriously, then slams Becca for keeping Colton around because of Tia. Couple of points, Tia just did him for a weekend, so may not of shared that with her girlfriends; it’s not like it was a relationship. Point two, it is a show and the producers may want her to keep him around for manufactured drama. Case in point next week with Tia there too for the mani/pedis. Random points, Becca may not want him around at all, but doesn’t have much choice right now. Obviously, Tia didn’t take the guy or their hook up seriously so why should Becca? Also, it was a weekend fling, so I don’t get why it is bad/unbelievable that he signed up for the Bachelorette two months later.

    As for Leo, a lot of people do questionable stuff trying to break into the “business”. Many an actress has naked or near naked pictures come out years after getting famous. People do all sorts of things in that business to pay the bills and get noticed. Plus, it was released last year but films are usually released at least a year or two if not more after wrapping. It could have been and most likely was make years ago. Not that it matters. RS is so provincial and puritanical sometimes.

    The main thing that bothered me about the show was…. what language is Lincoln speaking? Where did he get that quasi-British accent? There are words coming out of his mouth, but they are not forming coherent sentences, and that weird accent doesn’t help. One of the guys commented later on the show about why he speaks with a British accent. Until then, I was thinking that he came from England or a former British colony, or something. Is he an American with an affected accent? It’s just weird. It’s not really an accent I’ve ever heard. It’s kind of muffled and strange. And the guy was actually crying about his picture getting broken? Who does that? If he really liked the picture, he could have fished it out of the pool, dried it out and picked up a $1 frame at Dollar Tree & he’d be all set. I don’t get any of that. Obviously the stuff that RS has been reporting about him paints him as one really weird dude. But I was thinking that there was something more. There is. He’s weird as all hell.

    I agree with the above comment. I get that Becca may not want to date Colton because he briefly dated Tia. Kind of a semi-girl code thing. But it’s NOT a scandal, especially since he was honest about it. He gave Becca the option whether she was cool or not. I thought it was a pretty stand up thing to do.

    Also agree with the above comment about Leo. I have a friend that was in the modeling business who did some things she regrets when breaking into the industry. She was like 18 years old and naive. I’m sure it was similar with Leo. They think they are doing what they have to do, but they don’t have the foresight to know how it can come back at them. That’s just being young and making a mistake. That’s not the end of the world & it doesn’t make him a bad guy.

    Completely agree with that last sentence. RS seems to think a date = dating = relationship, full stop. That’s just not how it works in real life. These are hot, single, 20- and 30- somethings, hanging for a weekend means literally nothing. He’s acted like this before like with other non- relationships as well.

    rob22 – Lincoln is from Nigeria, which was colonized in the 19th and 20th centuries by Britain. The accent is Nigerian-English, which is what is taught in schools and most commonly spoken in Nigeria. As far as I understand it, Nigerians grow up speaking their regional language and a “common” language that is a mix of Nigerian slang and English. Most formal schooling is taught in “British” English.

    Such a relief that we can put Garret’s instagram likes to bed now, since RS approves of his apology. It shouldn’t have been blew out of proportion to begin with, it doesn’t matter what you do someone is going to be offended, especially if it appears that you have conservative views. I’m tired of conservatives having to continuously apologize about their views. Just because he liked some things doesn’t make him a racist or homophobe. Everybody doesn’t have to have the same views, beliefs, or same sense of humor. Liberals whine and cry saying conservatives are intolerant and need an open mind. I think it’s the other way around, since they are always so butt hurt by everything but think they can say and do what they want. Sorry rant over.
    Why is it so hard to believe that Becca didn’t know about Tia and Colton? Tia and Becca are only friends because they met thru the show. They haven’t been best friends since high school, so to me it’s completely understandable that Tia might not have mentioned her weekend with him and if she did she might’ve just said she met a guy on social media that didn’t go anywhere. If Colton really is a virgin, then the weekend probably wasn’t even worth mentioning, especially to a new friend you’ve just started hanging out with. Just my opinion but I don’t see anything wrong with Becca keeping him around, if what Colton said was true they didn’t really date, sounds more like talking and met one time to hang out. I’m sure the producers encouraged him to use the words “I dated Tia”. Sorry to disappoint you RS but sometimes a girl will go on a date with a guy and not like him and not care if a friend goes out with him later, so I guess you can say girls share guys. There’s a difference in a serious relationship and talking to a guy.
    Quit begging for Dr. Reality Steve letters, get the hint. Why would anyone want relationship advice from a man that’s never even been married or qualified to give it. Maybe they feel sorry for you but need the advice then head to the comments since you have several readers that give out advice on every letter you do and sometimes their advice is better. How did or why did you even start do Dr. RS. Just because you blog about the bachelor gives you the skills of a relationship expert. Lol you really do think a lot of yourself and it’s showing more and more.

    @taxionna- thanks. Ironically my original assumption was that he was from Nigeria or South Africa, or something like that. But then I heard the comments on the show… something about him and spending a few years in the UK & somehow picking up the accent (it was a real brief comment)…. and I started wondering if it was an affected accent he picked up at a British university, or something. Either way, it still seems like he’s talking gibberish. There are a lot of words coming out of his mouth, but they don’t all fit together. Perhaps his awkwardness and language challenges are just because he’s from another country, and doesn’t have full command of the English language. That’s cool. I guess I should let it go if that’s the case. I won’t even bring up the other stuff RS mentioned.

    Yes to everything @sc07 said. Well said!

    Double yes to @sc07! And now he is teaming up with A. Spivey for “he said she said” relationship advice, really? 2 peas in a pod, those 2. Sharleen was smart to step away from him. Curious to know how Sweet Becca feels about what she / he did. And RS has trashed these contestants for years, now he’s hanging with them, like the nerd who is in with the cool kids. Double standards.

    If Garrett has to apologize for whoever or whatever he “likes” on social media, then I expect a public apology from Becca for openly supporting Hillary Clinton.

    This really made me laugh! I love it! No sarcasm, I think it’s great that somebody said this.

    On another note…
    Has anyone else noticed that Chris resembles Ben Stiller,
    David resembles Andy Roddick (and a young Josie Charles sometimes);
    also, Blake reminds me of Liam Neeson.

    Crap I didn’t know Colton was a virgin. Then what is the big deal if he and Tia didn’t “hook up”? Sorry, don’t follow this show that close, so missed the virgin thing. Now I’m really confused about RS’s stance on the whole Colton Tia thing. Let’s just say I double down on my last sentence.
    Also, so agree on who in the heck would ask RS for relationship advice. I’ve never read them but always wondered who was that desperate.

    “Ingenuity” is a word, which means cleverness. I was almost impressed until I realized Jordan said “injuwenity”.

    Well it’s pretty clear to me that Stevo is indeed affected by all the criticism he’s been getting. Reading between the lines, I see that RS is desperate to move on from the Garrett crucifixion because he’s right there with him like the theif on the cross. RS and Ashley could both learn a lesson; be careful pointing the finger at someone, three may be pointing back at you! Bwahaha! Who knows, maybe the bach producers will hire her to vet future wannabe contestants. Or NOT. I dearly hope she goes away now and rests upon her golden throne of purity, light and self annointed truth. The road to hell is paved with goody goody intentions though so good luck with that Ashley. Now stfu you whiney gash.

    Lol, that’s hilarious Lexie but since we’re on the subject of apologies, the majority of this country is still waiting for one from those supporting the truth-defying Tweeter in Chief and the fact that we now live in a perpetual SNL skit, that’s not so funny when one sees that their country is the laughing stock of the rest of the world. You know, that stable genius with the impeccable ethics and morals, a tremendous example of which includes f-ing a porn star while his wife is home with their newborn and having his sleazy lawyer try to pay her off…but never mind, he himself said that he can shoot someone in the middle of 5th ave and his base would still support him. And the scary thing is, he’s totally right.
    So yes, as far as apologies go, this would be a big one. Whenever you guys are ready 🙂

    @sc07 I’m tired of bigots cloaking themselves as conservatives. Because our president is a “conservative” and acts that way other conservatives think it’s okay too. As a conservative I’m offended. Conservatives are about lowering taxes and reducing the role of government among other things. Mocking and cutting down people of different races, religions, and genders is NOT conservative. Yes I know liberals do it too but let’s not confuse lack of human decency with being a conservative.

    @rob, perhaps you’ve never noticed before, but a lot of non English speaking nationals are taught either British-English or American-English. So you get this mix of their natural accent etc., mixed with either the quasi-British or quasi-American sounding accent.

    Edit to my above note – It should read JOSH Charles, not Josie.
