-Because a producer got in Chris’ ear and told him it’d be a good idea to go over to Becca’s place and plead his case to her knowing full well she’d be sending him home, that’s what he did. Chris is still bothered by what Lincoln said and lets us know that Lincoln “eats 12 eggs a day” and “his cholesterol has to be 6,000.” Is that even a thing? It’s been a year or so since my cholesterol level was checked, but I don’t remember having numbers like that. Did he mean to say Lincoln eats 6,000 calories a day? So of course I had to go to trusted Google and ask, “What is the normal cholesterol level?” Answer:
“Cholesterol levels for adults. Total cholesterol levels less than 200 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) are considered desirable for adults. A reading between 200 and 239 mg/dL is considered borderline high and a reading of 240 mg/dL and above is considered high. LDL cholesterol levels should be less than 100 mg/dL.”
Yeah, I don’t know where 6000 came from or what that has to do with cholesterol, but I’m no doctor. Well, except when I’m Dr. Reality Steve, which you can hear some of today in the re-launch of the “He Said, She Said” podcast on my Reality Steve podcast feed. Or you can listen in the link on page 1.
-I think Chris just got lost in this process because there is no logical explanation for him sitting across from Becca, and having probably two of the worst interactions with her the last two weeks to the point of her excusing herself and ruining other dates she was on, and then telling her “I can see myself marrying you at the end of this.” There’s just no way he actually could’ve thought that to be true. Had to have been a Hail Mary he threw to possibly save himself since he probably saw the writing on the wall and maybe thought that would be his saving grace. I don’t know, but I’m convinced there’s no way he could’ve believed what was coming out of his mouth. Again, props to him for owning up to it today and lets hope he sticks to his word on Paradise.
-I would talk about how Chris acted once Becca let him go, but I figured the beating he’s taken to this point is enough. Do we really need to put the guys face on the ground and curb stomp him even more? Probably not. We all saw it. Obviously he was pissed and didn’t agree, but it manifested itself even worse when he acted as childish when he did when all she wanted to do was walk him out. If he didn’t have that apology today, sure, I would’ve beaten him down even more. But he sees what he did and didn’t blame anyone else. I think he knows he f***ed up and that was his best route to go. Unlike Jordan, who conducts an interview and bashes Becca saying she was boring, says it’s all in the editing and they wanted him to play up his model lifestyle and he’s not really like that, then spends the whole interview talking about how great he is.
-Becca has cancelled the cocktail party since, well, like Connor and Lincoln had a chance. Jason, Colton, and Leo safe with roses. Becca gives what seems to be the longest damn pre-rose giving out speech I can remember. Damn she rambled. Here’s what I got: “Thank you for this week….a lot more emotionally challenging than I was expecting…Chris coming to my room and sending him home put things in perspective…have to follow my heart…woke up knowing what my heart was telling me…I’m going on and on and on and on with this and it’s never ending and Steve doesn’t want to take notes anymore…”
Garrett: I love you and you only and I want to be with you. But I’ll just give group date roses to rando’s like Colton for f**k’s sake.
Blake: I kinda like you.
“Becca, gentleman, it’s the final rose tonight. When you’re ready. We literally had three roses to give out at this rose ceremony, and I’m comin’ in hard after two roses to tell everyone there’s one left. And I make $60k an episode for this nonsense. Good lord, I hope I’m never outed for stealing money.”
Wills: You cool with another week?
Wow. We’re finally only one episode away from hometowns. Not bad at all. This season is just breezing by. Before you know it, it’ll be Paradise season. Then filming of the next “Bachelor” in mid-September. Lets keep on pushing forward and head for the finish line. The best is yet to come. Make it a great day. And every other cliché you can think of to end this column.
