-Connor (I can quit calling him Connor S now since Connor J was eliminated last week) has the 1-on-1 date but receives a card from Hannah saying she’s sick and she can’t make their date today, which was supposed to be some sort of sailing date. Instead, she wants him to come over to her place and baby her because she’s sicky icky. We see her in an ambulance on the way to the hospital being hooked up to an IV because she passed out earlier. Was it from all the cologne from the night before? Does this have anything to do with why the tip of Hannah’s nose is constantly red? Like, it’s been that way on every date in both episodes? Maybe that was the sign that she was getting sick and she had a runny nose or something. I don’t know, but that Rudolph look from her is really, really bothering me, and I’d love if someone could fix that ASAP. K thanks.
-Although, Hannah did tell Connor in the letter to come to her hotel suite for her date but, ummmmm, that wasn’t a hotel suite she was in. Sorry. Details, but still. Connor heads over there, but before, he needs to stop off at the flower store on the show’s dime so he can pick up some flowers for the sick one. A nice gesture, but probably would’ve been cool if he would’ve paid for it himself. Not that we expect him to, but c’mon, nothing is done on this show without production knowing. So he brings over the flowers, hops in bed with her, and Connor is rockin’ his no-show socks, so that immediately has to earn him some points with Hannah, right? Although, he still could’ve taken them off along with his shoes when he got in bed. Does he have sex with his socks on too? Looks like someone who would.
-Did we ever get a break down of exactly what Hannah was sick from? I thought at some point she mentioned the flu, or did I not hear that correctly? Either way, if you’re that laid up, do you really want a guy sharing a bed with you to make out with? If Connor wasn’t sick before, I gotta believe he picked something up from that make out session, didn’t he? Maybe you should think of others first Hannah before tonguing down a dude while you feel like ass. I get it. You like Connor. Cool. We just don’t need you passing along sicknesses to the others on the show before travel starts. Because then Connor gets sick and gets on a plane next week. And then gets everyone on the plane sick because that’s what happens when you’re on a plane and someone is sick. A plane is nothing more than one enclosed inner tube of germs. You’re welcome.
-Connor goes back to the mansion where he creepily gets asked by Luke P. “what was she wearing?” Is that really important? You knew she was sick, you knew they didn’t go anywhere, and she had been to the hospital. Luke’s hole keeps getting deeper and deeper by the minute this season. While Connor is getting interrogated by Luke P., a driver shows up and says that Hannah is feeling better for their date later tonight, and he needs to be ready in 15 minutes. Well, he’s a guy. If it took him more than 10 (assuming the showering and shaving has been done at this point), then he needs to hurry up his pre-date rituals. They meet up, she gives him a rose, then they get a private concert by Lukas Graham, which has all the awkwardness that one has on a date where it’s two people standing in front of a band not knowing what the hell to do. Looked like two friends having fun more so than any deep love connection, and that’s why you’ll see Connor day 1 in Paradise. I also believe Caelynn did an interview last week and said she was interested in seeing Connor in Paradise, sooooooo….

I don’t have a problem with Mike or his story – except …. he got so emotional when taking the blame for the miscarriage because he wasn’t there and then 10 seconds later is sucking face with Hannah – seriously???
May 28, 2019 at 11:36 AM
If anyone ever questioned why Luke was getting a bad edit… all they need to do is look at last night’s episode.
You CANNOT blame the producers for that — Luke actually told Hannah, “I’m letting you develop relationships with others”
O. M. G!!!
Dude has some serious personality disorders and if ABC was serious about contestant evaluation, Luke would have not been ever cast in the first place.

The Luke thing is pretty bad and a tad scary! A male version of AshLee ‘crazy’ Frazier. Some things just can’t be edited or manipulated by the producers’. Some contestants are simply cast because of emotional issues etc., and I don’t doubt that’s why Luke was cast. Overall, they are all essentially lab rats, and that includes the lead.

Thank you for mentioning her red nose. Come on ABC touch up her foundation every now and then. That’s fixable with a little powder. Also, if I had to guess, I would say that Hannah was dehydrated for whatever reason. They did mention the flu but then she said that she wasn’t contagious. Nothing like a little norovirus flying around the mansion to stir things up a bit. Thanks for this site. It adds so much to watching this show!

I don’t understand why no one is talking about the fact that Mike blatantly lied and misrepresented what Cam had said. He said that Hannah might send him home AFTER telling her about his condition, which had happened to him in prior relationships. Mike twisted what he said and made it seen as if he was planning on telling his story to get a pity rose, which is exactly what he did some days before. I think Mike is a disgusting human being for trying to savotage Cam with lies and deceit. I’m also questioning Hannah’s judgement for taking Mike at his word.

> I don’t understand why no one is talking about the fact
> that Mike blatantly lied and misrepresented
I for one, and I’m no Nancy Grace, thought absolutely Cam was trying to get a pitty rose.
> what Cam had said
What exactly did Cam say?
That he had a situation; some gibberish about an amputation and a puppy.
It was a non-nonsensical rant, with little to no details, about who knows what and if you watch the replay, Hannah looks like she wants to laugh at him.
May 28, 2019 at 6:20 PM
Cam’s speech was more contrived than Mike’s just because he announced it to everyone up front. Mike’s seemed contrived because it looked like they just sat down and he launched in to it with nothing leading up to it, but with the editing it is hard to say how long they might have been talking before he got into it. It should have been a mood killer for any romantic gesture after for sure though, let alone face sucking.
I think everyone is being affected by LA pollution. It is the worst in the country. Even the guys sound nasally/sick. I think Hannah’s nose/guys voices will clear up once they are out of town.
I wonder if Luke has taken up a Christian religion where men are considered to have authority over women. It may make him feel like he can embrace his inner control freak, because that is certainly how he is acting. I’m not sure he was paying attention to how not submissive Hannah was on Colton’s season and only saw what he wanted. Hannah is definitely NOT the woman for him, lol!

I thought the whole pretend pregnancy and childbirth was the most cringeworthy thing this show has ever done. And they have done some bad ones.
May 29, 2019 at 7:46 AM
We know from ex- producers and contestants several things. One is that in the interviewing process they give the contestants a lengthy psychological test which reveals their strengths and weaknesses….which the producers EXPLOIT.
I strongly suspect Cam is socially inept, and while Mike’s leadership qualities were a plus in the military, he came across last night as a bit overpowering and underhanded as we never heard Cam use the word PITY rose. Mike misconstrued the situation to Hannah to get his desired results, and I suspect none of them is particularly pleased with the way that looked.
Jonathan’s psych test may have revealed persistence and determination; therefore, he may well have been producer manipulated into that scene we saw last night.
Luke clearly does not understand how reality shows operate, the manipulation, or the editing techniques, so he wasn’t careful at all with what he said.
One of the producers’ favorite tricks is to stand sight unseen to the side and ask a question. We don’t hear the question…only the answer which often results in ridiculous things – if not the things the person would ordinarily mean in the situation we are seeing.
*For that reason I don’t take at face value everything we hear the person say.
However, I do believe, perhaps, something tipped them off in his tests and interviews that he can be possessive, and they have manipulated that excessively.
May 29, 2019 at 8:50 AM
I agree with what you’ve said, great comment. I’d add further, that some conversations take place between contestants (that aren’t or can’t be shown for whatever reason), that we later hear about, which show a true nature of a person, some positive, some not. The psychological tests are most definitely used to exploit some of the contestants as it’s used ‘against’ them. One producer said some psychological test results were ‘borderline’, thus pretty much confirming they really shouldn’t have had certain contestant(s) on the programme. 🙁
May 29, 2019 at 11:28 AM
This is what makes me so mad about this show at times… “the psychological tests”. After Corinne/BIP blew up, ABC spun it the evals were there for safety, vetting, etc.
That’s a lie.
Shocker, I know.
But if ABC is truly concerned about contestant safety, there’s no way a Chad, a Corinne, a Luke gets on this show.
May 29, 2019 at 1:55 PM
ABC really only care about ratings, the rest is mostly empty platitudes. The psychological tests aren’t really there to serve as a safety net for the contestants, they are done so the producers know the contestants strengths and flaws etc. Corrine set her own agenda on how she wanted to be portrayed on the programme. I don’t think that really happened in such an obvious way before her. During Arie’s series we had Demi, and so now we have contestants going on there to seek the most air time possible and those who are manipulated etc. who attract attention, but not necessarily of their own wanting or making. Chad would largely come under this edit, he really shouldn’t have gone nor have been allowed to go on the show at all. He was the producers puppet and play thing. 🙁
