-Mike P. gets the 1-on-1 date and, yeah, this went about as well as you thought it would. Yet again, nothing to do with the resort itself, but a date where they bring in some Cuddle Queen and put Katie and Mike P. in incredibly awkward positions. Here’s the thing: If this date were with Greg, would Katie have been laughing the whole time and not be able to keep a straight face? Of course not. Same goes for Blake. Because she’s actually into them. The reason this date was awkward and neither could keep a straight face is because they clearly didn’t have any sort of physical chemistry. Hence the reason they made this date in the first place for them. It was to show they had no chemistry and Katie would send him home. I mean, they could’ve made this date anything they wanted and Katie was sending him home regardless. But lets just make it as uncomfortable and awkward as possible on your way out.

-Katie didn’t even wait until the night portion to send Mike home. She came back after their cuddle sessions and telling him that he reminded her of her mom to send him home. I mean, is there a worse thing you can tell a guy than that? Especially while you’re laying down cuddling? Talk about a mood killer. “You remind me of my mom” is the equivalent of saying “Why don’t you stand right over here in the friend zone.” Absolutely brutal line to lay on the guy right before you send him packing. Guys, if a woman ever tells you that, pack your bags. You are forever destined to be living in the friend zone and will never come out. So unpack, get settled in, maybe make yourself a sandwich and stay a while. And by “a while” I mean forever and ever. It was nice knowin’ ya Mike.

-At the rose ceremony, we have 2 roses for 3 guys. Michael and Greg already safe with roses. Katie is here, and she’s got a lot to say: “This week has been very difficult…rose tonight means I meet your families…I do not take this lightly…I see my husband in this room…exciting and scary…a rose means seeing a future with you…accepting a rose means seeing a future with me…well, except Michael who will do a 180 in about 24 hours…”

Blake: He’s totally leading the charge in clogging the shower drain this season, right?
Justin: Certainly not because of his arts & crafts project during the group date.

I’m glad that Tayshia and/or Kaitlyn didn’t come out after Blake’s rose to tell us there was one rose left. 3 guys, 2 roses. Not that hard to figure out. Thank you ladies for standing back.

Andrew gets the boot and it’s a sad, sad goodbye. So much so that he comes to her room the next day to drop off a note telling her if she changes her mind, he’ll be waiting. She runs after him through the hallway because…she wants to hug him. And kiss him goodbye. She asks if there’s any way he can stay which, I don’t know, confused the hell out of me. Maybe she was just trying to be nice, but you literally just sent him home the night before, and now you’re asking if he wants to stay longer. I saw Andrew’s side on this. Made no sense. If she wanted him, she wouldn’t have sent him home. Simple as that. Lets see what he says next week on the “Men Tell All” about it, or if he thinks he should’ve taken her up on that offer.

    Is it just me or is Katie dull and overly intense?

    It was Mike who told Katie she reminded him of his mom because she was caring and connected to people’s feelings, not Katie saying that to Mike. He also made a comment about his mom being a good cuddler. He seems like a nice guy, but whoever he marries will have to be okay with mom being #1.

    You’re SO not alone, Adelina! For me, Katie just doesn’t have muh appeal. And to be honest, I’m kind of surpised that so many of the guys are gaga over her. She seems a little full of herself, dresses dull as dust, and yes, very intense and defensive. I am just not invested in this eason and right now could care less about the outcome. I do not like Blake – didn’t like him on Care/Tayshia’s seasons and just don’t see his appeal either. But I’m actually glad she picks him as they make a great unappealing couple! I read a blurb online about a week ago where Katie was slamming someone for criticizing her final pick and commented, “That match is NOT a Jojo and Jordan” ….couldn’t agree more!

    You’re correct Caffeinequeen. I was a huge red flag when Mike said that Katie reminded him of his Mom and how his Mom was a good cuddler!! Now I know why he is still a virgin, he’s a Mommy’s Boy to the core. Yuck!

    I also don’t like Blake and never have. Katie is okay, but just okay. She seems to obviously play up the drama.
