The Bachelorette 16 - Clare

The “Bachelorette” Clare – Episode 1 Recap, Ratings, Yosef, & Luke Parker Thoughts

Ben: He made sure they took a deep breath together. Spoiler: Ben lasts awhile into Tayshia’s season and he has a backstory that I don’t know gets revealed or not. I gotta believe it does, but he suffered a very serious brain injury while in the military. Keep an eye out for that.

Riley: He’s a lawyer so he tells her his final verdict is that she looks beautiful in her dress. I’m worried about our court systems when a lawyer tells us that the lawyer is the one who comes to verdicts. I believe that’s the jury, but hey, what do I know?

Kenny: He figured that he’d be a producer puppet wear a shirt with a picture of Clare’s dogs on it to earn some brownie points. Because I’m sure he had that printed and done himself.

Tyler C: Man, talk about being behind the 8-ball just because of your name. If you’re named Tyler C and you show up in a station wagon Clark Griswold style and you aren’t Tyler Cameron, you might as well go home. Hey Tyler Cottrill, didn’t you know that Tyler Cameron walks on water and can do no wrong? How dare you try and show up this season and be the new Tyler C. Shame on you.

By the way, Tyler Cottrill is the one guy who I didn’t have getting eliminated on night 1, nor by Clare in general. Gee, maybe I would’ve been able to notify you of that earlier if I’d seen the first episode early per usual. Booooooooo.

Bennett: He shows up in a Rolls Royce and every single fiber of this guys being screams he went to Harvard. I’m sure that won’t be mentioned 1 or 100 times this season.

AJ: Maybe nerves got to him, but he squeezed Clare’s hand so hard, he pushed her ring into her skin and hurt her hand. Whaddya’ know? AJ didn’t make it past night 1. I guess it’s true what they say about first impressions.

Easy: Jumped through some paper that said “Your Future Husband.” Take a good look at Easy because I don’t think you’ll be seeing him in this franchise ever again. Some serious allegations against him arose on social media last night. I spoke with the woman involved. Not good. I’ll leave it at that.

Jay: Jay showed up in a straight jacket because he was crazy for having to wait X amount of days for Clare. Or something like that. Which is fine. However, to say in the straight jacket all night? I mean, I guess you gotta commit to the bit, but that seemed a bit extreme.

Chasen: He showed up in an iron suit. I don’t really think anything Chasen does this season even matters considering he’s already been seen in the same IG video as Becca Kufrin and Sarah Coffin promoted him on IG as well.

Demar: Showed up in a parachute because he was “falling for Clare already.” We know the “Bachelorette” is back in when we get lines like that. Coronavirus, shmironavirus. Things are back to normal now!

Ed: He rolled up in one of those plastic bubbles that you roll around in and bounce off your friends. Also, used during Juan Pablo’s season on a group date in New Zealand (that Clare wasn’t on), when they went “zerbing.” Fun fact to impress your friends and mistresses with.

Dale: Church.

    Last night confirmed what we all already knew–Clare got issues. Yeah she is very beautiful, but she is also very off. Crazy eyes, weird speaking cadence, and just a bit unhinged. Gonna make for some solid episodes if they let it play out and don;t hide it.

    Speak for yourself “crushon..”. Categorizing someone as “having issues” is such an easy take and the most low hanging fruit when it comes to labeling women. I didn’t see Clare’s “crazy eyes” but I see you found lots to dislike including she’s “off” and “unhinged.”

    Clare was great. There is no “beautiful, but….” for me.

    She really pounced on Dale before he’s even ready to kiss her during the FIR

    On one hand, I get having a visceral attraction to someone immediately. We’re wired for that. But, I mean, you go on a dating show known for phonies who want to promote themselves & basically call “game over” after the limo entrances? That’s just bizarre and really wacky. Isn’t Clare the one the show portrayed on BIP, or similar, as talking to a lizard? This is so off the rails. I, for one, am glad that Taysha gets to take over. I don’t think I could handle Clare for the whole season.

    I don’t mind Clare, I don’t think she’s crazy, impulsive yes. I would want time to see if the one I liked was trustworthy and not there for the fame etc. I think Taysha will be a great Bachelorette, as far as that role goes.

    For the record @Rob22, it was a raccoon not a lizard! Lol Clare said it was a set-up and she was actually speaking to a producer.

    As for Luke Parker. I totally understand why he wanted to speak out and defend himself. The franchise has a dire record of setting contestants up and making them look bad. The franchise has changed a lot of contestants lives for the better, but it’s ruined some reputations too, and this shouldn’t be swept under the carpet and ignored. However, I did read his contract expired in July this year, why didn’t he wait till it expired (like all the others do) before speaking out?

    On reflection, I’m not sure raccoons exist in Mexico?! …it was a ‘fluffy thing’ Clare was seen speaking to. Lol

    Clare is just a bit off to me – she is way too emotional and is so guided by desperation – it’s pretty sad. She is very pretty (although – how much of her is real? not that that really matters I guess) I can’t imagine a man wanting to put up with that level of emotional basket case. I have known guys that get themselves into those situations and end up regretting it massively – but can’t deal with what it would mean to get out of it. Anyway – still silly fun so watch on I will. 🙂 Maybe Clare will end up with the happy emotion. lol

    Why was there no mention of her engagement to Benoit? Or does that demonstrate Clare’s history of jumping in without thinking too much?

    Oh – I forgot her other engagement. She does jump so quickly – typical of an overly-emotional person.

    > Last night confirmed what we all already knew–Clare got issues.

    Yep. I’ve been on the fence about that previously. I mean who is as smoking hot as Clare — look at all that beauty, and 39 never married or no family? Nobody who doesn’t come with a LOT of baggage that is.

    > She really pounced on Dale

    Jeez no kidding. I don’t know how RS says they’ve never met before the show and she’s ready to do him right then and there.

    I don’t know what y’all think but Tyler C is giving me a Lee Garrett vibe.

    Some of these guys need a tailor. Their suit pants look like capris.

    Claire doesn’t have “issues” or crazy eyes. That’s what sexist people say about women. If you don’t like her, say you don’t like her, don’t say she’s got “crazy eyes” whatever that means. Half the guys she met had “crazy eyes”.
    I hate how men are wearing super short pants now with no socks. It looks almost as ridiculous as rolling around in a bubble.

    I’ve never seen one of these shows end early because someone had a contestant picked out almost immediately.That has happened before and they didn’t end the season, so, it’s weird.
