The “Bachelor” Clayton – Episode 6 Recap, Wordle Confusion, Shanae’s Thoughts, & Finale Talk

Wait a second. Now you’re telling that since the NY Times bought and took over Wordle, we’re gonna have days (like today) where not everyone gets the same word? What the hell is going on here? I read some explanation on Google and it had me totally confused. But yes (no spoiler here, don’t worry if you haven’t done todays yet), apparently since NY Times bought Wordle, they eliminated some words from their list off the original list? I didn’t even know there was an original list, and wouldn’t looking at the original list kinda ruin the whole point of the game? I’m so confused at what’s going on and I need answers now dammit. And while it doesn’t change my thoughts on how I feel about Wordle and how much excitement level has dropped significantly since I started (currently on a 29 game streak since I started), I still would want to know that we’re all playing the same word every day. I think I’ll text Ashley Spivey after I’m done posting today and ask her since she’s the one who turned me on to this game in the first place. She’ll know what’s up.

Get your “Reader Emails” in for tomorrow as the batch is a little low right now. I believe I only have around 10 or so. Would like 10 or 15 more for tomorrow if that’s not asking too much. It’s so hard to even mentioning anything about the ending of this show anymore because all I do is get shit on if it’s not giving you the winner. The amount of stuff I’m hearing, the contradictory things I’ve heard, the info I’ve heard but can’t confirm…there’s a lot. Here’s an example, but from a past season that I talked about when it happened: Peter’s season. I didn’t know Peter’s winner until the weekend before the finale. But all season I had told you if you were to believe all the people in Auburn, Alabama that were saying for 3 months he chose Maddie, then that’s who he was with. I had tons of people tell me that from a week after filming ended. But I never reported the spoiler “Peter chose Maddie” in the end because although I was being told it by numerous people, none of them ever had any solid info to back it up. It was all, “this is what I heard.” Then I’d ask where they heard it from, and it’d go nowhere that was solid. So that’s what I mean when I say I don’t like reporting things I “hear.” If that were the case, I would’ve already spilled something by now. I want to know what happened and/or who Clayton is with. Not who I’m hearing he picked or what not.

I could say til I’m blue in the face “THIS IS WHO I’M HEARING CLAYTON PICKED BUT IT’S NOT CONFIRMED,” and every Tom, Dick, and Harry with 4 followers on IG will report that “Reality Steve said Clayton picked…” so I don’t bother ever posting things I’m hearing. I will put my name behind it when I feel I know for sure who he picked, not just relay things I’m hearing. And there’s a lot now that I’m hearing. Picked up this past weekend and things are kinda/sorta becoming clearer? It’s tough to say without walking you through everything I’ve heard, where I heard it from, what they said, how it fits into the season, etc. And obviously I’ll never share those details because it’d out sources, which is why I say it’s almost impossible to talk about the ending of this season publicly. You guys want to know the winner. So do I. And when I do, you’ll know.

Shanae took to IG last night to give her assessment now that she’s gone from the show. In case you missed it…

Ohhhhhhhhh, now I see. WE’RE the ones who are all in the wrong. Judging her for what we see on our television screens. How dare us? This woman is flat out delusional. She couldn’t have come across any worse on the show if she tried, she couldn’t have handled social media any worse post-show, and now she’s putting all the blame on us, took zero responsibility for anything she said or did on the show in that post, then gave a passive aggressive “good luck to Clayton” at the end, when we already know her true feelings about him once she told him to “f*** off” once she was eliminated. But hey, you and me are in the wrong here. Not her. Just remember that. Unreal.

    The amounts of “likes” used by the women and Clayton make it almost immpossible to watch.

    I was excited for this season but am bored, the bachelor is boring to me, and sick of the villian drama. Love the spoilers though, they keep it more interesting.

    So, I wonder if the women like Mara know they are fillers. We have all heard that the lead picks who they want to keep and the producers fill in the rest. So, if you’re that far in and others are getting second one-on-ones and you’re not it is a loud message that you’re not one of the leads pick. You can’t get mad at the other woman, she didn’t give herself two one-on-ones the lead did. I’m surprise that more don’t leave once the figure that out, if they figure that out.

    @jlal – I really think that for the most part the “fillers” are looking for their few minutes of fame – and the possibility of making it to BIP. Surely they know that their “connection” isn’t as great as others. The maturity level of most of these women is very low and they are easily manipulated by production.

    I agree with all your comments and wanted to add that it baffles me that contestants like Mara have no idea how they’re sabotaging themselves when they complain to the Bachelor about not getting a one-on-one date while others are getting a second one. Did you see the expression on Clayton’s face when she was going on and on about that? And to bury herself even further by commenting on the age of the women he’s showing most interest in? She’d walk away with a helluva lot more dignity if she just owned up to the fact that “he’s just not into her” and leave before he lets her go. She claims she’s the oldest one of the women. She’s 32, which is not old, but the way she’s behaving, she wreaks of desperation…NOT an attractive look. I suspect she was egged on by producers to confront him.

    @ctrealitygirl, agree! Any time one contestant complains to the lead about another contestant it always seems to backfire. If you watch these shows with any regularity you would know that. Too bad Mara got hooked in. No doubt producers are stirring up drama now that Sha-nay-nay is gone.

    ctrealitygirl – I totally agree that it (read Mara) just reeks of desperation when they complain to the lead about not enough time, etc. And, yes I did notice Clayton’s face when Mara was complain. You can tell he was thinking, “Well I’m just not that into you”…

    I do agree that 23 is a tad too young to expect someone to commit to marriage and kids. Not unheard of, but in this day and age most people are older. I don’t know if Clayton doesn’t have much dating experience or if it is the edit, but he seems like he is totally taken in by a pretty face and words without digging deeper.
