-The rest of the episode took on a pretty serious tone as you clearly saw, but, there were some things that definitely made you scratch your head, or, just flat out laugh at. So the first group date was Hunter, Thomas, Brendan, Connor B., David, James, Quartney, Aaron, and Justin getting to meet Nick Viall, who is currently trying to rip the title of Lifetime Contract With the Show away from Ben Higgins. Considering Ben is engaged and planning a wedding now, he seems to be a bit more occupied and we haven’t seen him on the franchise as much, so, in steps Nick. Right now, Nick has clearly taken the reigns from Ben and, god forbid, he ever gives that title back up. The whole thing is just so ironic to me and downright hilarious to be honest. All you need to do is rewind a couple years and that should tell you all you need to know.

-This was a date that we’ve never seen before that I can remember. The guys all sit in a circle, intervention-style, and are supposed to tell Katie about their past relationships. Any ghosting, cheating, next Bachelor thoughts, etc. Almost like an AA meetings for relationships. Just spill your guts to the guys and Katie and millions of people watching. Couldn’t have been easy, that’s for sure. Hunter was up first and talked about how after having his daughter and son, his priorities shifted and he drifted apart from his wife in their marriage and ended up getting divorced. Says he failed at his marriage and broke down understanding that a failed marriage is pretty common, but how much it affects his kids will always get to him. Thought it was a great story to share and one of the many guys after last night that you could get behind this season.

-Aaron was up next and told a story about how his dad got sick, he met a girl who also had a sick parent, they started dating but almost felt an obligation to be together and that he “wasn’t the man I wanted to be.” Kinda vague and bit generic, no? Maybe he said more in the group, but that’s all we heard him say. My opinion is that is translation for “I cheated on her.” I could be wrong, but, if he’s admitting he felt an obligation to be with her due to the circumstances in which they got bonded and got together over a sick family member, I can see where that turned into once he realized that, he was just setting up the next girl he wanted to be with. Just guess but I don’t think it’s that far fetched.

-Thomas then drops his doozy story. Thomas is like that kid in middle school who had to stand up in front of the class to give his book report, and you know damn well he didn’t read the book, yet still gives you some long ass summary that doesn’t quite make sense. Or the student who writes an essay and fills it up with a bunch of “At the start of the war of 1812,” and “So to summarize this war of 1812” just to make it seem longer than it is. Style over substance. Frankly, I don’t know what the hell Thomas was saying in his story. Something about everything happens the way it’s supposed to happen, and that the worst case for this experience for him is that he gave it a shot, and built a platform from it. Translation: I’m here to build a brand and really had no interest in leaving with Katie. Now, to be fair, what Thomas’ mind set was is really no different than pretty much every contestant who comes on this show. However, he was just a moron for verbalizing it in front of everyone else. Because basically that’s like throwing blood in the water to the sharks. He’s cooked.

-Connor B. was the last guy to tell his story and he was the one you can say opened up the most. He was in his mid 20s, he’d dropped out of grad school, was drinking a lot to the point of getting blacked out drunk. When he got in that stage he would get angry, and one night he had a fight with his girlfriend, got high, and cheated on her. He was emotional throughout telling the story because he knew he hurt somebody and carries a lot of guilt for it. Again, brave of him to admit his past fault, then you put that story up against Thomas’ and you can see why the guys are pretty much side eyeing Thomas. Like, really? That’s the story you’re choosing to tell. Couching your thoughts about reasons for coming on this show with “everything happens for a reason.” He just sounds like the ultimate bullshitter and now after hearing the other guys’ stories, really sounds even stupider compared to what they shared.

    So the dating scene for the over 50 crowd is pretty dismal as you can see by that Senior Bachelor’s sudden turnaround. Divorced men over 50 tend to be the worst. Enjoy your freedom ladies…

    FYI Rachael’s essay is in New York Magazine, not the New Yorker; two different publications. It’s certainly worth your time.

    progressive4ever, thanks. That makes so much more sense. I thought, the New Yorker, that’s such a classy, literate magazine. New York is much more the place for this sort of thing! Look forward to reading it.

    Regarding Michael coming on the show 2 years after his wife died. 2 years. That’s a fairly lengthy time to grieve. Most, I think, would say that it’s more than long enough. Do people think that they should never have companionship ever again? It’s really a well known thing that some guys (and I’m sure some women) don’t do real well without a spouse, or at least a solid girlfriend. So, a lot of guys very quickly start dating. You can have your opinion on that, but there’s no rule that says that people have to live like a monk after their spouse dies. Their spouse is dead, so it’s not cheating to have a girlfriend. I know two people who’s wife died and they were remarried within a year. You can question whether they rushed into it. Everyone does. But guys get lonely. So, at two years? Yeah, do whatever you want. You’ve suffered enough.
