The Bachelor 24 - Peter

The “Bachelor” Peter – Episode 2 Recap, Madison’s Week, Vegas Update & More

Photo Credit: ABC

Safe to say Madison had herself quite the last week, no? In case you missed the story that was running everywhere over the last few days, last week Madison posted a picture on her IG from her first episode date with Peter. You can see that pic below…

You can also see that the same IG account (“madiprew”) left a comment on that picture saying how “real and genuine” Madison is. Well, that’s Madison commenting on her own picture since that’s Madison’s account. Immediately people assumed Madison has another account (a finsta), she forget to switch back to before leaving that comment. Does she have another account? Probably. What we do know is that “madiprew” left that comment on “madiprew”’s IG post. It’s not really that hard to believe that Madison left that comment on her own page because, in case you haven’t noticed, Madison literally comments back to EVERY person that comments on her page. Not just her Bachelor girls, either. Go look at how many times Madison comments under someone’s comment, even just to say thank you or leave an emoji. So clearly she’s on her phone non stop all day every day to be doing that, since those comments are spread out throughout the course of the day. So it’s not far fetched at all that Madison screwed up and accidentally left a comment on her own IG. Is it a crime? Of course not. Is she a horrible person because of it? No. It’s actually kinda funny. She’s a 23 year old girl getting all this attention for the first time in her life, and she clearly doesn’t know how to handle social media yet. Fine. Simple mistake. Let it go.

The problem is, she tried to cover it up, and it really just made things worse. This acccout (_a_i_d_334) claims THEY were the one who left that comment on Madi’s page, because they were signed in to her account while she was gone, and forgot to sign back out…

There are a few things wrong with this account, which when I looked last night, has now been deleted. First off, how many of you give your IG passwords to ANYONE? And if there are a few of you that do, how many of you would give it to someone who’s NOT a family member? I’m guessing none. So it just seems totally bizarre Madison would give her IG password to a family friend while she’s gone. But hey, lets give this person the benefit of the doubt and say she did have it. Madison has been back from filming since before Thanksgiving. This comment was posted last week. _a_i_d_334 account had 912 posts before they deleted their account. It was set to private so I couldn’t see when their last post was, but why would you still be logged into Madison’s account two months after she’s been home when she’s clearly been using her own account since? The cover up became worse than the original lie, as it always is.

I know she’s young and she’s knew to this, but Madison should’ve just admitted her mistake and been done with it. So you commented a compliment on your own page. Yeah, the optics aren’t great and you look silly doing it, but if you own it, people won’t care and forget it. The question then becomes why even do it. Madison just by virtue of her first episode date and edit, is already loved by many fans out there. She already had a ton of outpouring of compliments from fans already. Why would you possibly feel the need to throw one more on there for yourself? Again, this is her first rodeo into this, she’s getting more social media attention than she ever has in her life, and she clearly has no idea what she’s doing. But still, even with that, why not just take all the compliments you’re getting on social media and leave it at that? It really makes no sense to me other than someone who’s completely lost on how to handle this newfound “fame.” Kinda feel sorry for her, because once she tried to cover it up, it made the situation worse.

One other thing that was brought to my attention in regards to Madison over the last week, is there is a faction of people out there absolutely crucifying her for what they believe is “white savior complex.” I hate to even go down this road because of how insane people are getting over this, but this kinda struck a nerve with me. Basically people are accusing Madison of being overprivileged and taking advantage of the fact she’s traveled to third world countries for volunteer work, but then posts pictures with some of the children from those countries in order to make herself look good. Here are some of the posts in question people are questioning…

My heart found its joy as I served the beautiful people the world calls “poor” but who seemed so rich in love. I saw myself in those little faces. I looked at them and felt this love that was unimaginable and knew that this is the way God sees me. The kids would run to me with gifts of stones or dirt and I saw myself, filthy and broken, offering my life to the Creator of the Universe and begging Him to make it into something beautiful. I sit here in a broken world, small and dirty at His feet, and He who sits so high chooses to commune with me, to love me anyway. He blinds Himself to my sin and my filth so that He can forge a relationship with me. And this is what He did for me with these beautiful children. He blinded me to the filth, and I saw only children hungry for love that I was eager to share with them. I adored them, not because of who I was but because of who He is. -Kisses From Katie

Pure Joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

4 posts. Unless I’m missing some, those are the only 4 posts she’s made with children from volunteer work she’s done in other countries. And the first couple were posted in 2013, when she was 16/17 years old. I know people are having an issue with this, but Good Lord, don’t people have something better to complain about? While they want to focus on what they perceive as self-promotion on Madi’s part, I guess I just look at it more of in a positive light. Just looks like people have to find a reason to bitch about something nowadays, especially when it comes to contestants from this franchise. If Madi got eliminated night 1, no one is saying a peep about this. Because she’s a devout Christian, that’s immediately going to get under people’s skin, and so be it. And maybe you don’t like the wording she used in her captions, but does that really undo the good she’s done by her volunteer work, or at least the good she was trying to do? Which by the way is probably more than the people who are complaining about it have probably ever done.

Why are we so focused on immediately finding the negative in 4 of Madi’s posts the last 7 years, rather than just applaud the girl for trying to do something good? I have no horse in this race. I don’t know Madi from the next person. Clearly have never spoken to her in my life, and don’t know much about her other than what the show has given us. I say that because anytime I say one thing nice about any contestant, I’m immediately bombarded with emails claiming bias and ass kissing. I’m calling this like I see it. I saw the same pictures you all did when I looked and Madi’s IG page. The thought that never came to my mind was, “Wow, what a shameless self-promoter who’s using under privileged children to make herself look better.” 4 posts, and 2 of them were within a month of each other when she was a 16/17 year old, probably on her first trip for volunteer work. Do we really need to shit all over that? Good God. Get a grip, people. If you really are taking the time to write long ass captions crucifying Madi for doing volunteer work in other countries and posting about it, the chances are you probably need to re-evaluate your own life and priorities. There are hundreds upon hundreds of worse IG posts and captions from this franchise than that. But THIS is what gets under your skin? I’m sure this will set some people off and make them think I’m condoning some sort of white savior complex. It’s not. I just don’t even remotely see this situation as that. It’s times like this where social media makes me want to puke. Moving on but just wanted to get that off my chest.

    The reason this show is so popular is because people want to see the meltdowns, the drama, the bitchiness and the backstabbing. Women eat that crap up seeing other women do those things. I mean, they love it. So long as it doesn’t happen to them, or they aren’t getting the rough edit. This show doesn’t last as long as it has without all the contrived BS and the emotional meltdowns and ridiculousness. It is Bachelor 101. Girl power? LOL. Not here.

    Not gonna lie. This Bachelor is a dud so far. He tells all the girls what they want to hear. Seems a bit disingenuous. I mean, there is being nice, then there is being fake. Seems fake, especially after the Hannah B stuff. Totally torpedoed flyboy as actually caring about any of the women on the show. Had she been willing, he would have dumped them all for her right then and there. And now we’re supposed to believe in this journey? LOL. Nope. But I will say his chat with Hannah was the most authentic thing we’ll see all Season.

    Last couple guys have been a bit dull. Not gonna lie. Thankfully, the women are giving us the petty drama and excitement to spice up the show. Look forward to the next round of it.

    I was not jumping for joy when they named Peter as the Bachelor, but after the first episode, I changed my tune a bit and thought he had potential. But, this week – after all the tears and emotional chats with Hannah Brown, only to walk away and declare…”Ok, I’m ready to fall in love with someone new – he lost me. There’s no way he’s completely over Hannah, and I actually felt badly for the women he ends up with having to watch those scenes with Peter and Hannah. And I’m not feeling a lot of the women…Hannah Ann for starters, but Kelsey was quite the drama queen with the whole “Champagne-gate” episode. The whole thing was So immature. Oddly, the one woman Steve threw under the bus for dating married men – Victoria F – I liked the best last night. Steve says he’s definitely not with Hannah B…but I’m thinking that that ending is the only one I’d believe. He’s acting like a kid in a candy store with all his making out sessions. Ugh.

    From what I’ve seen so far, I’d say that Peter is into Madison the most, and he is very physically attracted to Hannah Ann. It looks like Victoria and Kelsey are there for the drama and not because he is truly into them. I’m sure that production is doing what they do every season by showing us what they want us to see and manipulating the girls every chance they get. I know its early, but at this point it almost seems like they are making Hannah Ann a villain, although not a truly bad villain like some in the past. I could see Peter going after Madison but not proposing because he didn’t get permission from her dad, and therefore just continuing to date her up until the live finale. I could also see Peter getting to the end and Hannah Brown shows up and wants to see if they might be able to give it a shot. I know Steve said that Hannah Brown is gone for good, but I could see that ending happening because we never saw any real closure in their conversation and it seemed like they were trying to talk but not be heard by the cameras. Just a theory but seems possible from what we’ve seen up till now. The hard part is that things never are what they seem because production loves to mess with us. So hopefully we’ll get our finale spoiler as time goes on.

    I agree with you dogmomma. The fact that the DWTS finale happened almost simultaneously with the Final Rose ceremony of the Bachelor, makes me think that once Hannah B got her mirror ball, she very easily could’ve gotten on the horn with production and begged them to tell Peter that she still had feelings for him. I watched DWTS and Hannah was quite emotional the the whole season and now it’s starting to make sense that part of it could’ve been due to her lingering feelings for Peter and filming the show at the same time as he was starting his season as the Bachelor. I read a few articles back when they ABC was making their decision and it seemed to be a race between Peter, Tyler and Mike…all Hannah’s guys, and she stated more than once that she had a hard time thinking about any of her guys becoming the next Bachelor. And I also agree with the theories that Hannah’s final two picks were actually Jed and Peter – NOT Tyler – and that when she expressed that Jed would be her final pick, ABC asked her to let Peter go at number three so they could pursue him for the starring role. I’d love to see them end up together. And if he doesn’t end up with her, I’d hate to be the woman he picks having to witness their chemistry on the screen. It’s undeniable

    ctrealitygirl, Well, if all of that were to happen, it would definitely be “the most dramatic season ever”. I’d love to see that ending as well. I don’t know if it’s just me but so far I haven’t seen many of Peter’s girls that stand out in a good way. I think Madison seems very sweet and I like the fact that she has done missionary work. Most of the girls strike me as being pretty shallow and just interested in their Instagram followers once the show is over. I think the show has really changed over the last few years.
    And the best part of last night was when the champagne blew up in Kelsey’s face. Couldn’t have happened to a better girl!!! And even better was seeing all the people on Twitter making fun of it. She’s bound to be completely embarrassed after watching that!

    All it would take would be a Facetime call with Hannah at the end to create major havoc this year. Not a plane ride. Just screen time. I doubt it happened but it seems to be something more going on than last minutes notification of virginity.

    Still think it is down to the final 2, but Hannah B jumping in at the last minute certainly would cause massive drama and put off the final 2 choice. I don’t think it’s gonna happen, but she’d be the only girl in the picture I’d believe he was actually ready to marry.

    These girls seem so young and immature. You can’t tell me any of them is ready for marriage! Madison and Hannah Ann are very similar – cute, young, brunettes. Madison looks like a young Maria Shriver with those teeth for days. One of the blondes (not Kelsey) looks kind of like Hillary Swank. Victoria is super annoying and fake – oh, I’m so shy and insecure – let me whip off this coat and prance around in lingerie and kiss the lead. Riiiight. I kind of like one of the Asian women, Tammy? She’s pretty and has personality. Kaitlyn’s friend looks just like Kaitlyn but not as sassy. Peter’s a bore.

    Maybe you’ve already thrown this out there, but I’m going to guess that Madison chose to leave because she felt disrespected when she found out Peter slept with another contestant and his mother is begging him to go after her. Perhaps she left without saying goodbye and this is what Chris Harrison is telling him. I can’t imagine he’s breaking the news to him that she’s a virgin…

    I think your theory might be the most plausible, mendi!

    mendi, I agree with Steve, I don’t think Chris Harrison’s news to Peter is all that devastating. If Madison leaves because Peter slept with others and everyone thinks that’s okay, why wasn’t that okay when Luke P. was blasted last season for being upset about the same thing? If a woman can sleep with whomever she wants, whenever, and how many times she wants (4 times in a windmill!) and she’s celebrated for her empowerment, why not the same for a man? I don’t think that’s it, though.

    Madison could have left because her dad didn’t approve of her getting engaged after such a short time on a TV show. If this is what is so devastating that they are alluding to, then it’s not really that much different than Colton’s season when Cassie left because she wasn’t ready to get engaged. But then again they have to make the audience believe that we’ve never seen this ending before. If Hannah Brown decided to come back into the picture, that would definitely be something that has never happened. Time will tell. And it sure seems like Chris Harrison has been saying that the season could possibly get spoiled “because things get out”. Interesting!

    So, about the Instagram thing. While I agree that it’s unlikely that someone who is not your family member would have your social media logins and passwords, I have friends who I have their info and they have mine and I’m a grown woman. I’d imagine that younger people would be less likely to think through the potential aftermath of someone having access to their social media. However, I’d bet it’s more common than you’d think.

    Also, have you ever been logged in to multiple accounts on Instagram? I’m logged in to 4 currently, (2 business, and 2 personal) and for a while there was another account that it took AGES for me to get deleted from the list.) I get notifications for all of the accounts and if I click on the badge, it takes me to the account it’s notifying on, not the one I last used. It’s actually really easy to accidentally comment on something you shouldn’t if you aren’t being obsessive about checking.

    I don’t know what happened, but I also wonder why everyone is so quick to jump to the conclusion that it was some scandalous “cover-up.” Manage multiple accounts on your insta for a few weeks and tell me you don’t have an near-miss moment a few times. Now add in the fact that Madi’s account is EXPLODING with notifications right now. In my opinion, it totally coulda been a friend who made a mistake by clicking the banner and not paying attention. Buy hey, I tend to assume the best in people.
