The “Bachelorette” Hannah – Episode 8 Recap, (EXCLUSIVE) BIP Engagements, “Men Tell All” Films This Week, and Jed Speaks Out Finally. Sort Of.

-Tyler’s hometown immediately starts with Hannah and Tyler rubbing suntan lotion all over each other. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say this was very much a sexual innuendo. We don’t see that often on this show where two people rub each other down like it’s going out of style. But this couldn’t have been more overt if they tried. But hey, they are two sexual beings who have every right to rub lotion on each other if they so choose. Just don’t think that wasn’t lost on the audience since the amount of women making comments about it on social media and how Tyler could rub them down anytime I’m sure played a role in why this was done. They take the boat around for a little bit then jump in the water, and lets hope that lotion was waterproof. I know a lot of lotions are, but some of them that’s false advertising. I’ve absolutely gotten burned after putting waterproof lotion on so I say screw you Coppertone. I hope they used Hawaiian Tropic. Where were we?

-As we’ve heard this season, Tyler’s dad got really sick right before he left for filming. Tyler states the obvious to Hannah: “I haven’t seen him since…I left.” Ummmm, yeah. We kinda figured. Not sure how you would’ve seen him once you left for the show, but hey, details. Hannah and Tyler dance around as a band plays and the patrons surrounding it all take out their phones and send me the videos to it. Three of the four hometown dates were spoiled in real time for those that don’t remember back in April when they filmed. Parts of Jed’s, Tyler’s, and Luke’s date were all spoiled while out in public, with Tyler’s getting spoiled the most. And in case you forgot, the order they were filmed were Luke (April 20th), Tyler (April 22nd), Jed (April 24th), and Peter (April 26th). It’s easy to see why Peter’s never got spoiled based on what they did. Nothing they did was in public where people passing by would see. And I think for ANY LA hometown date they’ve had, nothing’s ever gotten out. In recent seasons, a couple that come to mind are Kendall’s and Desiree’s. I just think in LA, the city is so big, they’d never really do anything where people would see them. And if they did, I don’t think people in LA care about filming going on because there’s ALWAYS something being filmed in LA. But yeah, when you show up in Gainesville, GA with a camera crew, it’s probably gonna be known.

-Hannah and Tyler meet with the family and Tyler gets to see his dad. Good stuff here as we see Tyler actually show emotion when they speak. Look, Tyler has basically been Mr. Perfect all season, and almost every woman watching this show wants to bear his children, but c’mon lets be honest, he isn’t the most excitable guy in the world. He speaks in the same tone for everything he does and I can never tell if he’s happy, sad, angry, or elated. But I get it. That’s his thing. Always being under control. Chris Harrison said it at the beginning of the season, it’s confidence bordering on cockiness. I don’t really know because all I’ve seen is 8 episodes of a television show. He may be cocky. And if he’s not, I can see where people might think that his confidence comes off as cockiness. It’s a fine line. It’s hard to get a read on him since he doesn’t show much emotion in anything he does. Very monotonous. Not a good thing or a bad thing, it’s just a…thing. Makes him hard to read.

-The gist of this hometown date was that Tyler wants his dad to be there when he gets married and has kids, and Tyler believes he’s ready for that. Hannah we know is ready for that based on their sexual chemistry and how she’d probably have his baby and move to Jupiter tomorrow. I know everyone is asking about Hannah and Tyler now, and all I can tell you is we don’t know anything. You can speculate all you want, but until the finale, we are not going to know 100% what’s going on with these two. I get it. You have to know now. You have to know yesterday actually since I get asked it all day every day if there’s a chance Hannah and Tyler will get back together. Of course there’s a chance. She obviously had strong feelings for them and they’re now both single. But I haven’t heard anything about them getting back together. Doesn’t mean they won’t, doesn’t mean they will. Means we won’t know anything until the finale at the end of the month. The only thing I know is these two haven’t seen each other since filming ended and I doubt they will in the next 3 weeks. Any reconciliation between these two, if it were to happen, would happen at the ATFR. And honestly, I don’t think Hannah needs to jump into anything so soon. But I’m not her, so we’ll see.

    Jed’s family is getting a bad rap. I think they know he is immature and not ready. They said so, so is wasn’t about Hannah. She just happened to be the girl there that night. It was about Jed. And Jed’s parents were pretty honest about him. They know the dude is still a mess and not ready. Whether it was Hannah, Haley or any other girl. But Hannah ignores what they were putting down. They really tried to warn her about their boy. And many viewers did not like it. I found it refreshing. Honest hometowns are always the best hometowns.

    Also, can we address the little temper tantrum Jed threw at the rose ceremony!!!! Do you think the producers had any clue about Haley and knew the goldmine they hit with that little outburst?

    I was thinking the exact same thing last night, aflo78! Wondering if Jed cringed when he saw that back after all the bad publicity he’s gotten and is whining about. Like the old saying goes: “If you want to play, you have to pay.” Hilarious!

    “Seems like a low blow. YOU were the one that kept him around all season. If it was as bad as you’re saying it was, then you should’ve let him go early…..Going all in 4 times seems a bit excessive.”

    Maybe we’ll understand it better–and the anger that drove those comments–after watching Luke try to shame her (or come over as superior to her, however you want to frame it) next week. Just a thought. Hell hath no fury like a bachelorette scorned, perhaps.

    I’m pretty sure if I had given a problem boyfriend the benefit of the doubt multiple times, only to have him turn on me in the end and reject me because I was no longer “godly” enough for him, I’d be nursing a bit of a grudge. (I’m not saying that’s what happened, but it does kind of look like it, doesn’t it? I guess we’ll see.)

    So…he was in a “relationship ” with another girl for FOUR months, and now everyone is ready to crucify the guy? It might be a story if it were four YEARS. And I’m pretty sure he’s not the first contestant that went on the show purely for exposure. He probably had no idea he would end up actually falling for Hannah. Sorry Haley, but if he was that into you, he never would have went on the show.

    Why do so many people on this series have such a problem giving a toast? So often they say, “give a cheers to”, when they should actually “propose (or give) a toast to”, then say what they want to say about whatever, followed by, “to our future (or the most beautiful woman I’m with tonight, or whatever)”, followed by whoever agrees with the toast saying, “cheers”, or “to our future”, as they clink and drink.
    TL;DR – It’s a toast, not a “cheers”.

    Bravo, Steve, on Jed’s career. As the saying goes, you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Yes, he not only is not a good singer, he sounds like 8 million other guys who are not good singers and his songwriting is nothing to write home about either. And I can’t tell you how I wanted to shout at the TV, “Tune your damn guitar!” Can’t freaking stand out of tune string instruments.

    Frankly, I’ve never thought Luke was so bad. Most of what he’s said so far sounds like he just wasn’t made for this kind of situation. Most guys, in the real world, who were getting set to marry a woman WOULD definitely get upset hearing she just went bungee jumping, naked, chest-to-chest, loin-to-loin with another guy. And in the real world, it would hurt to hear that other guy excitedly describing it. But this – that he signed up for – is not the real world.

    It sounds like he got very right-wing Christian judgmental with her (After what he admitted he’d done? Much double standard?)

    My guess is, as she said to him Week 3, he needed to stop “flaunting our relationship in front of the other guys” because it obviously just would get them worked up and jealous. Did producers keep encouraging him?

    Steve, I think religion played a big part in it, with likely many deep religious conversations we were not privy to. But….. guy had a great body, enough to make the other guys jealous of that, too; and she admitted to Harrison that Luke was the best kisser, saying she could go on with him for hours. So, the physical attraction I think played a big role.

    They needed a villain, they guys already were fomenting it – jealousy probably foremost – it was easiest for producers to just run with that one and amplify the dislike and hatred in whatever ways or hints they could.

    Please do try to get an interview with Luke P. As for his slut-shaming Hannah, sometimes these ex-anythings are the worst. Ex-smokers – they are the worst to light up around. Ex-addicts, etc. Especially in the beginning, they have zero tolerance for being around their old vice. Hopefully, Luke’s attitude toward pre-marital sex will soften with age and reality and waking up to the 21st century. But if the up-coming scene is what it looks like, I can’t blame Hannah for being offended.

    OK, here goes on Luke. What I got from that hometown is that Luke is the Big Dog in his town, or at least with his group. As long as he’s the Big Dog and pretty much gets to dictate what happens, he’s fine. On The Bachelorette, he not only wasn’t the Big Dog and didn’t get to dictate terms, but his attempts to control everyone on the show turned everyone against him. He was a fish out of water at that point, so things just went from bad to worst. It would never work with him and Hannah, because as much of a mess that Hannah is, she’s not going to put up with a controlling guy. That’s been the basis of the arguments she’s had with him. Luke doesn’t get to dictate what she, or anyone else does on The Bachelorette. Drives him crazy. As far as his religion goes, Christianity really isn’t something that really “changes” someone outwardly instantaneously. I mean, they’re supposed to change, and as they grow and mature with their faith, they hopefully make positive changes and improve. But it’s not surprising that a relatively new Christian of his age, really doesn’t much understand his religion yet & comes across as a hypocrite. I give him somewhat of a pass because of his age. But he is still representing his religion poorly and he really needs to own it. I hope he comes out and falls on his sword and apologizes for his behavior on MTA. There’s really no place else to go with it. If he tries to justify it, blame others or claim that he was edited poorly, it’s not going to come across well. I think we’ll see very quickly if Luke has learned anything, because they’re going to come at him hard and he needs to just take it like a man. I’m guessing he starts by apologizing, but I bet he won’t stick to it when the guys bring the heat on him. He can’t handle that.

    Not considering what we know about Jed now — but if we didn’t know about Jed’s GF prior to the show, the reaction to the rose ceremony would have been different…

    … I’m totally with Jed about saying WTF when he gets a rose after Luke.

    Personally, I would have gone up to Hannah to say goodbye and excused myself from the running. There’s no way in hell, no matter how hot she is or the connection we supposedly have, that the woman for me has that bad of a decision making process.

    > Why do so many people on this series have such a problem giving a toast?

    Because it’s not organic and completely manufactured.

    You’re right, making a toast is easy. When it’s genuine that is. When you have to pull stuff out of your rear, because everything around you is manipulated, that’s when it gets hard I imagine.

    I felt like Luke’s family was trying to redeem his rep., but how would they know how bad he’s been? Hannah should sent him packing weeks ago. He is an insecure, immature, jealous, controller, who uses his religion as an excuse to be judgmental. No thanks!

    Jed was so playing a game with Haley, Hannah and the show. I don’t think for a minute he was serious, just playing along.

    I like Peter and had no issue with his calling his car baby. I’m a car nut and have always love cars. I get that to some (most of my family and friends) a car is just to get from point A to B, but to us car lovers they are much more. Also, had no issue with taking her for a flight. Pretty cool and something I’d have loved to do. Condoms in the console, I didn’t think good or bad. Just great he practices safe sex. I’m a women, but someone tell me is that bad like RS seems to think?

    Tyler is and has always been my favorite.

    Late to the party, but what’s in it for Pilot Pete? I read he’s a pilot for Delta Airlines. He probably does regional flights as he’s a newbie. How did he get the time off to do this show (or does he not have a job anymore?)? If I were the Bachelorette, I’d be looking at why someone would come on the show and on that basis alone, I’d choose Peter. He has nothing to gain by being on the show other than to find someone. He’s not going to give up being a commercial pilot in order to become a model or sports commentator. He seems really nice and into her. His family seemed very nice. He has a good job and he doesn’t live in some hellacious town in the middle of nowhere. Maybe I am too rational, but I just don’t get why she’d go for Luke and his dodgy music career, especially since it’s obvious he has no talent. I am convinced that Luke was a producer pick and she was forced to keep him on to keep the drama going. Tyler is dullsville. I can’t take his monotone dude-alicious voice, but I suppose if he’s not talking, he’s easy on the eye. At least working for his father’s business he has a guaranteed paycheck coming in. Hannah just has bad taste in men. My picks: #1. Peter; #2. Tyler. No one else qualifies.
