The Bachelorette 14 - Becca

The “Bachelorette” Episode 5 Recap, Garrett’s Wedding Video, “The Proposal” & Summer Tour Stop #3 Next Weekend

-Ahhhhh, we’re headed to my favorite place – Las Vegas. You know my affinity for Vegas, although, I never really spend much time at Aria. I’ve gambled there, hung out in a room there, but never actually stayed there. It’s certainly a nice hotel, just not one that’s for me. Absolutely nothing against it, especially since “Carbone’s” restaurant is in there and I loved eating dinner there, but just not my place to gamble for a weekend. I guess this show chose it for Becca’s season because, well, how could you pass up a hotel like Aria when it’s one letter away from Becca’s ex-fiance and someone we get reminded about every 17 seconds this season? Also, once they’re in Vegas, you know all the Vegas lines will be used. Look guys, “Swingers” came out in 1996. Saying “Vegas baby” 22 years later isn’t the most original thing. Then again, look at some of the Neanderthals we have this season and I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Silly me.

-Colton has the first 1-on-1 date of the episode and because there are 1,000 cool things to do in Vegas and on the strip, naturally, the show takes them to BFE so they can “get over the humps of our past relationships” and ride camels. I’m sorry, but we know how sh***y some of the date planning by producers on this show can go. We see it every season. But holy boring-as-f**k Batman, who thought of this garbage? Riding a camel in the Vegas heat. Are they serious? Last time I checked, they weren’t in Saudi Arabia. This is Las Vegas. One time in a past season, Ashley and William got to ride a boat onto the water in front of the Bellagio and have dinner. Colton gets a camel ride in the middle of nowhere. At no point was this romantic nor exciting, regardless of if they dropped a hot tub there for them to enjoy themselves in. Going to the arcade at Circus Circus for teenagers is more fun than this. You lose.

-So Colton and Becca hop in the tub and he tries to get all serious and stuff, but it’s impossible to take the guy seriously when every sentence out of his mouth has a smirk behind it? Like does he know he does this? Is he about to tell a joke at all times? What is that? Why does he constantly look like he’s got some sinister secret he’s holding back? It’s almost creepy. He says that frustration has been his one constant emotion since he’s been there, and I totally get why he feels that. I mean, Tia isn’t the “Bachelorette,” so of course he’s frustrated. He lies to Becca’s face and tells her he’s beyond happy with how everything has played out though and I believe his nose grew 6 inches by the end of the sentence. You know how it “best plays out” for Colton? If Becca falls extremely ill during filming, can’t continue, and Tia is brought in as her replacement. Yep. That’s how it best plays out for him.

-At dinner in Aria, Colton talks about his dating past, which is pretty non-existent. Says he’s only been in love once. It was a little over a year ago. He said “I love you” but she didn’t say it back and that was hard for him because he doesn’t just throw that out there for the sake of saying it. If he says it, he’s gonna mean. And there’s no doubt that he will only say it to that special someone. You know, that someone who has to have a minimum of 5 times the Instagram followers that he does, or else it’s not worth his time or effort. Lets go to the scoreboard and check a few things real quick. Current numbers as we speak:

Colton: 193k followers
Tia: 467k followers
Aly Raisman: 2.3 million followers
Savannah Chrisley: 1.6 million followers

Ok, so maybe Tia doesn’t have 5 times as many, but I kinda see a pattern here, don’t you?

-I’m pretty sure he was talking to Becca about Aly when talking about that last relationship that ended a year ago. Funny how he never mentioned how he made a big spectacle of asking her out. Or how many red carpets they went to. Or even mentioned anything about who she was, their public relationship, or any of the good stuff. Kept it pretty generic since I think Becca is a pretty observant person and would’ve seen right through that. Regardless, he gets the rose, they go ride a tourist big bus down the strip, the marquee in front of Aria lights up and says, “Kiss Her,” so he does. And that’s the Becca and Colton love story that has 3 more episodes left. Warms the cockles of your heart, doesn’t it?

    BIP is out.

    Jordan and Krystal are on.

    Cannot wait to see those two narcissists fight with one another.

    I liked the short with Jacqueline and Tomas Delgado. Pretty funny. But I think I’d like anything with Jacqueline in it. If she went on BIP, even for a minute, I’m watching. Gotta figure out how she can be the next Bachelorette.

    I was kinda wondering how they got down to the F4 & F2 that they did. But then it hit me. Garrett, Jason, Wills, Lincoln, Colton, Leo, Connor, Chris, Blake. Of these, how many obviously have no chance? Isn’t there typically at least some drama around a few guys that could make it into the F4? I mean Leo is still there. Leo. Why? Lincoln is there. Why? Not to mention keeping Chris after his meltdown. And some of the other guys like Wills and Connor are nice enough guys, but seriously… I can’t honestly say I even remember who Jason even is. I guess these guys are around because the two on one cleaned out their “competition”. Yeah, it’s pretty bad.

    I watched Garrett’s wedding video. How odd that they were divorced two months later?!

    I always have a bad feeling about couples who smash wedding cake into each other’s faces.

    I also think it’s super tacky for the guy to put his entire head under the bride’s dress in order to retrieve the garter. I mean, the whole ritual is dumb to begin with – but the head under the dress with Grandma at the next table? Just no.

    I saw a link on twitter to Jordan’s portfolio and I have to say he photographs well and looks much better in his portfolio then he did on the show. His stats show him as 6′. I thought he seemed shorter. Regardless of his awful personality, dude looks like a little Nazi to me. Not attractive at all.

    I vote Leo or Wills for next Bachelor.

    I too watched Garrett and Kayla’s wedding video, and while I found it touching he was crying and the bride wasn’t, I found that kind of telling. Not that she didn’t respond enthusiastically to the proceedings, but I wonder if he turned into one of those clingy, emotional guys that was able to hide that side of himself until after the wedding. That would drive me away. And quickly….

    I also noticed that she looks an awful lot like Becca, and he may just have a “type” he is attracted to, or he may be looking for a Kayla replacement, which would be creepy. If I was Becca, I certainly would want to talk that girl one way or another and corroborate his story about why it ended. If he is the clingy type, he may not even recognize it in himself, but I would have hoped that when Kayla left she would tell him. There is nothing worse than a claustrophobia inducing relationship. I would be looking for red flags showing his true personality right away.

    Lastly, I know a lot of people don’t like Jason and his gelled hair, but for whatever reason, I like him and Becca together. I know it doesn’t end that way, but should Garrett eventually show his clingy side to her (maybe she might like it after Arie?), she might reconsider Jason. Blake seems nice too, but for whatever reason, I just don’t see it. He looks a little goofy, even though he comes across as very articulate. The way his hair is cut, he reminds me of Gumby. Garrett brings out the Austin Powers in me, and makes me want to cry out “MOLE(S)”!!! Juvenile but true….it is the first thing I see when the camera pans on him.
