-The second group date was a 6 person group date and it was done specifically to break a world record (?) for longest kiss ever. Or was that just a Bachelor record? Or was it just Carly and Evan’s record? Hell if I know. I’ve lost track. But whatever the case, this doesn’t seem like a record that’d be really tough to break, like, tomorrow. Just doesn’t seem like it’s a record anyone cares to break. You don’t think two high schoolers who just started dating and are attached at the hip under the bleachers at a football game could make out for more than 4 minutes and 25 seconds? I certainly do. And was it just me, or did Joey and Charity’s mouths come apart a few times towards the end of their record? Could’ve sworn they did, yet the clock kept running. Whatever. Can two people anywhere in America call up Guiness and have them watch you make out for 4.5 minutes so this show doesn’t have the record? Just seems so silly and easy to break.

-The five guys who didn’t win on this group date were sent back to the house and told the rest what happened which was, well, Joey got to make out with her in front of us, which watched on in disgust, then had to head back to the mansion with our tails between our legs. This didn’t sit well with Brayden who clearly thinks he should get every kiss and every rose. And yes, while that can be incredibly annoying to the rest of the guys, a villain that does not make him. Well, I mean for this show it does, but he’s nowhere close to being on Chad Johnson’s level. Or Kalon. There are levels of villainy as we all know, and Brayden is the lowest of the low right now. If you want to move him higher up on your list because he says “bro” every third word, then yeah, maybe I’ll allow you to do that. That is quite cringey.

-Charity canceled the cocktail party that night in favor of a BBQ at the mansion, yet as far as I saw, there wasn’t anyone BBQ’ing shit. No burgers on the grill. No chicken or fish firing up. Nothing. Lets just call it what it was: an excuse to have more Brayden/Adrian conflict. Gee, whose blood do you think will boil next week when Brayden gets a 1-on-1 in San Diego? It’s like they can’t let this storyline go. Two episodes so far, and it’s been nothing but Brayden vs Adrian. Looks like next week, Aaron B seems to join into the fray. Regardless, we only have two episodes left of this Brayden nonsense since he’s gone in Washington. And maybe he will say something that completely sets the other guys and Charity off other than being young and immature. Seemingly Charity is biting her tongue for the time being knowing that in real time, I assume she felt she was being fooled by Brayden:

-Rose ceremony time. Aaron B., John, and Joey safe with roses. Charity: “Incredible week…outstanding connections…tonight so difficult for me…doing what I feel is best…and Brayden, in the immortal words of Farmer Ted in “Sixteen Candles,” – Take those ridiculous things off!

Dotun, Tanner, Caleb B., Warwick, Michael, Sean, Xavier, Aaron S., James, and Adrian get roses.

“Gentleman, Charity, it’s the final rose tonight. When you’re ready. The next time wardrobe puts me in a sport coat at Venice Beach, please, someone rip it off me.”

Brayden get the final rose. He’s now going to get under even more guys’ skin next week getting the first 1-on-1 in San Diego.

The $1 million question on everyone’s mind next week: Which bird did Brayden pluck the feathers off and strap to his ear for his 1-on-1 date? A quail? A bluebird? A peacock? So many questions. So little answers.
