The “Bachelorette” Becca – Episode 6 Recap, “He Said, She Said” Episode 1 with Ashley Spivey, & Chris Has an Apology

-Leo’s 1-on-1 date is up next and, ummmmm, wow. Talk about painful. It’s safe to say that a mountain lion and a gazelle have more chemistry together than these two (Mountain lions eats gazelle’s right? Just checking. There are million other comparison’s I can make. Don’t ask why I went with that one. It’s late, I’ve been up talking all night to a potential podcast guest, and I don’t feel like expanding my horizons with my comparisons). Anyway, the date starts out innocently enough with Becca telling us, “I really like him and see something with him.” Cut to their two-seater plane ride over Richmond where we don’t see them once looking at each other or even speaking. Talk about romantic. I think if you actually took the time to dissect how many times Becca showed a remote interest in the guy, you’d find it’s zero. But hey, must be the editing, right?

-After that cringeworthy plane ride, Becca sits Leo down to tell him basically, “Look, unfortunately you’re stuck with the Wills date. You know, the one where I have a 1-on-1 the day after a group date where some of the guys screwed with my head, and rather than enjoy my time with you and tell you how much I love where our relationship is going, I’m just going to rehash what happened the day before and tell you it’s tough being myself today, basically sabotaging our 1-on-1.” Or something like that. I mean, she even admits to him he wasn’t getting the best of her that day because she’s still affected by what Chris did the day before. Leo plays it cool and is like, “Hey…we can do nothing today if that’s what you want. I’m here just for you babe. Whatevs.” Even went as far as to reveal this to her:

Leo: “I’d be yours in the real world if you wanted to be with me.”
Becca: “Well, I’m glad you’re here.”


That essentially summed up this date. Basically, “Connor and Lincoln are going home tonight so they’re not getting 1-on-1’s, Chris is off his rocker, so that really only leaves you left as the only guy I haven’t given a 1-on-1 to. If I give Garrett, Blake, Colton, or Wills another 1-on-1 before you, then the writing is on the wall for you as well. So lets just call this a stay of execution and enjoy our free concert together where two people who really aren’t remotely into each other have to pretend they are in front of a 1,000 people. It won’t be the least bit awkward.”

-But before the concert date, these two did a little oyster shucking. So during my podcast with Juliet, I mentioned that didn’t Rachel have some oyster shucking date with Jack Stone last season in South Carolina? I was partially right. Or not at all. The shucking part was right, but it didn’t have to do with oysters. They did a Shuck N’ Jive dancing bit, and right after that she dumped him because Jack Stone was kinda creepy. So my apologies for saying they did something with oysters as well. Either way, Leo and Becca both slam some oysters then make out immediately after, and I think I tasted that bile in my own mouth. Blech. Was that really a good idea? That looked about as disgusting as one could imagine. Garrett I could see her doing it with because she’s goo-goo ga-ga over him. Leo the soft core porn star? No.

-Over dinner, Becca is really interested in digging deeper and finding out how Leo “became the man he is.” Ummm, by going to an audition for “High Heel Homicide” is my guess. I digress. Leo tells us his parents have been married almost 40 years but he feels that he failed his dad because his dad wanted him to have a career in baseball. Leo played ball at a JC and at UCLA but looks like it never progressed anywhere past that. I don’t know Leo, you’re being kinda hard on yourself. No pun intended. A pro baseball player, or a pro actor who simulates sex with a sock on during movies shown at 2am on Skinemax. I think you did dad proud. Don’t be so down on yourself. Hey, whatever pays the bills, right? You do have that episode of SMILF in your back pocket to fall back on. And a brief stint in Paradise. And I gotta believe HHH is gonna have a sequel, no? Oh wait, you were stabbed during sex in the first one so I guess you’re out if they make another. Damn.

-Leo ends up getting the rose because, well, there’s a concert with a 1,000 people waiting for them and she couldn’t show up alone. Fact. And it was about as awkward as you could imagine. The pics and videos I posted that night, you could clearly see they seemed like two buddies who were forced to go on a date and kiss in front of a bunch of people as opposed to watching her on her concert date with Garrett in Park City. Light years different. But hey, Mr. Kelsea Ballerini put on a great concert for everyone, got some pub for his song, and it allowed someone to stick a microphone in Chris Lane’s face for God knows what reason to get his opinion on being the “Bachelor.” The amount of DM sliding I’ve seen from that guy is unreal. Like, the SAME THING to each girl acting like they’re special. It’s frightening what little game he has to run that. And his obsession with girls from Bachelor Nation is beyond anything I’ve ever seen. Holy sh**.

    I think Chris’s Apology Statement was awesome. I hope he sticks to it and shows well in Paradise. Good for him, though; it shows depth.

    I think any deeply f-ed up person who posts death threats to someone because they didn’t like how they conducted themselves on a reality TV show, needs to be held accountable and have their Instagram accounts suspended systematically, enough of this insanity. Who the f do these ppl think they are to harass these people and write vile things about their mothers, etc. Disgusting. I feel bad for Chris and others having had to deal with that, can’t be easy.
    Its high time Instagram and other social media platforms develop a feature where death threats and similar language gets recognized and accounts from which it came get shut down (and owners IP addresses recorded so they can’t create new ones) Reporting these people isn’t enough, maybe if there are repercussions- these psychos will start to think twice before posting whatever comes to their disturbing empty heads without consequence.

    Great apology by Chris, I think he’ll do fine on paradise. and to be objective, his behavior, while not his finest moments, wasn’t even nearly as bad as some of the other dudes like Jean Blanc, Jordan and “Smooth Criminal Lincoln”, who blatantly lied to make Chris look way worse than he did) So I honestly don’t even think he owes people as deep of an apology for that as he gave but good for him nonetheless, shows a lot of maturity.

    Becca’s shtick is getting old. How many times does she whine about letting other people dictate her moods?!

    Are there no safe spaces on the Bachelorette get away to? Poor snowflake.

    On three occasions now she’s brought a sour puss face to dates because of things other guys has said or done. I just don’t get why she gives away that kind of power to let other people to affect her moods in such a dramatic manner!

    We get it. It’s a bad date. It’s a bad guy. It happens to thousands of people every day in the dating world.
    You’re not special in that regard. Just move on Becca!

    A pet peeve of mine is public apologies. All they are good for is gauging how aware the person is that they need to fall on the sword and not make excuses. Sure, the average bozo, especially from a show like this…. but hardly limited to reality TV… tries to somewhat justify their actions, make excuses, or worse, do the “sorry if I offended anyone” thing. So, those people get what they get, because they overtly reveal that they’re not really sorry through their non-apologies. It’s amazing how many people can’t admit they’re wrong and can’t even pretend that they do.

    Chris is in the other category. His apology did take responsibility, and didn’t deflect blame or make excuses. So, I’m not saying that’s bad, but all it means is that somebody grabbed him by the ears and told him what he needed to do if he didn’t want to extend the cycle of hate he’s now experiencing (which is another issue altogether). It doesn’t mean he’s “really sorry”. It doesn’t mean he will actually change something. The whole apology is fairly meaningless. It’s meaningless because, #1, it’s a reality show, he broke no laws, he hurt nobody, and 3 days from now nobody will ever remember who Chris is, much less his apology. But #2, it doesn’t mean that Chris is really sorry and will or even wants to make any changes in his life. Odds are, this is who Chris is and will continue to be. But again, see #1. Nobody will care after the holiday, though they’ll be briefly reminded during MTA. Public apologies are just really dumb. Always.

    I thought that Chris’ “apology” post was lame given that he posted over and over again what he thought he SHOULD say and then accompanies said apology with a pensive posed picture against a wall. Gimme a break!! Overkill. Dude needs to say something as simple as “sorry I came off as such an a## on the show. Moving on…”

    I’m going to doubt that he received many death threats. Dude just doesn’t have a real strong sense of self – it’s as simple as that.

    Call me crazy but Wills reminds me of the blond chick that had the real affected voice last season. She tried to say she had a sore throat or some such crap and everyone hated her. His half mast eyelids, voice, and manner remind me of her. Also noticed when Chris was making his last ditch effort he said “…you should feel..”, and “You can feel that way”, good of him to give Becca instructions on how she should and can feel. He also said me and I too many times to count. What a egotistical ahole.

    One question, what is a DM?

  8. Caroll

    DM is direct message on Twitter. Private message.
    Google it.

    Thanks Caroll. I’m a Google freak, but had just read it in RS’s recap and just wondered.

    “Becca is so fired up, even when her schnookie wookie dumpling head walks in the room, she asks if she can excuse herself for 5 minutes to clear her mind of all the nonsense Chris and Lincoln threw at her.” HA!
