So for the first time in who knows how long, I didn’t watch the show live last night. Had the opportunity to take my nephew to Monday Night RAW so I did. As I said in my tweet last night, basically this whole season has now been narrowed down to what happens on the ATFR. That’s all anyone should care about at this point. Hell, even the show is giving away Hannah and Luke’s conversation at the overnight date and everything behind it, so they’re not even teasing anymore who it was with or what they said. It’s clear as day what those two argued over and why they argued. That’ll be fun hearing from the moral police once that all airs. Ugh. Over it. Anyway, I didn’t watch the episode until late last night and did some fast forwarding. And outside of two paragraphs, none of today’s post has anything to do with recapping the episode. Next week I’ll be back to recapping hometowns, and boy I can’t wait for Jed’s. How ridiculous is that gonna look now. Anyway, today’s column I give you an update on what’s going on with Hannah (page 2), more information regarding the woman who Jed slept with while with Haley (page 3), thoughts on where Tyler stands in all this (page 4), and BIP Spoilers for episodes 1 & 2 and a few storyline nuggets that I tweeted out over the weekend (page 5).
One mistake that I made last night was the retweet I made of someone insinuating Hannah and Jed had sex in the Netherlands in the windmill. It was dumb of me because I wasn’t even watching the show at the time. I was still at the arena. But I’m getting all these tweets about “Who did Hannah have sex with twice in a windmill” sent at me and I had no idea what people were talking about. So I texted a friend and they told me. Anyway, the gist of it is, it didn’t happen in the Netherlands. BUT, I do still think it was with Jed and it happened in Greece. I mean, when we see the overnight dates, I don’t think it’ll be too hard to figure out who had a date where a windmill was involved. Surely they aren’t going to hide that. So we’ll know for sure in a couple weeks who that was, but I’m pretty sure it was Jed she was talking about.
Get your “Reader Emails” in for this week as I’m sure you’ll have a lot more to say after what you saw last night and what’s coming up no doubt. I think last week’s was the biggest “Reader Email” bag we had this season, and that was WITH me removing a lot of emails with repetitive questions asking who do I think the next “Bachelor” will be. That will be discussed in a bit going forward today. Mostly on page 2. There’s so much speculation right now since Hannah isn’t being quiet on social media. Sunday night something really must’ve gotten to her because she pretty much made her feelings known.
You know what else got tweeted and emailed to me more than anything since last Thursday’s tweets of Hannah breaking off her engagement to Jed? “I thought you said she picked Tyler.” Head slap. SMH. I mean, and that’s only 9 days after the spoiler had changed. So yeah, I get maybe some people hadn’t heard or read about the change yet even though it’s been brought up in every column, podcast, and numerous tweets since I changed it. Just wait til finale night and those are STILL coming in. Fun times, I tell ya’. Ahhhh, the life of a spoiler. Trust me, even though the change is to the right spoiler, I don’t enjoy being initially wrong and that’s the main reason why. Because no matter how many times I say it from June 18th til July 29th, there will be numerous people who don’t have a clue she didn’t pick Tyler in the end and will ask me what happened. Happy happy, joy joy.
Anyway, before we get to that, a couple things to get to. Due to the nature of this season’s ending and everything that’s happened post-show, ABC hasn’t officially announced it but there’s going to be a 2-night finale on July 29th & 30th. How it breaks down, we won’t know til later, but I expect it to play out a lot like how Arie & Becca’s did. There’s a lot of footage from out in Greece to cover, we have the engagement to Jed, then there will be more footage as well. I can also tell you that the “Men Tell All” films next Friday in LA. As for who will be there, I would expect everyone outside of Jed and Tyler, and maybe Peter. It all depends on how they’re editing that 2 night finale. It’s possible we won’t see Peter get eliminated at the overnight date rose ceremony until the beginning of part 1 of the finale on the 29th. That would mean that he probably wouldn’t be at MTA. We’ll know next week who’s there for sure, but I’m just speculating now knowing there’s a 2-night finale.
Non “Bachelorette” related, I finally got around to watching the “Paradise Hotel” finale. It aired on June 6th, which was the first night I was in Vegas last month, so I never watched it. I had heard how the finale ended but didn’t actually watch it play out until Sunday night when I was going through my DVR and saw it was still there. I actually really liked the finale. But I’ve also now realized one thing when it comes to money dating shows and couples. Basically, lets just start assuming that any “dating/competition” reality show that comes down to one final couple from this point forward, they are going to throw in the “twist” now to either split it or one person gets to keep it. It’s inevitable. However, I really liked how “Paradise Hotel” did it with Bobby and Tatum in that final scene. There was actually suspense built there since I didn’t have a clue what they were gonna do. Bobby’s facial expressions played it off well making it seem like they were all good, then for him to slam his ball down at $200k leaving Tatum with nothing was honestly the smart move. We’re hopefully gonna hear from Bobby on next week’s podcast. Trying to get Tatum as well because I gotta believe there’s more to what went down behind that decision than what we saw.
