I am so excited we have some more Bachelor/Bachelorette shows to watch, and I am so excited about Bachelor in Paradise – which should be filming now!! The Bachelorette JoJo Season 12 Episode 1, here we go!
Of course we start off the episode like we have no idea who JoJo is, which maybe there are people watching who don’t. We get a quick synopsis of her on the Bachelor.
Bam that bathing suit! I wouldn’t be mad if I looked like that!
Now we have three past bachelorettes at the mansion telling her how to be successful. Ali, Des and Kaitlyn are there.
She asks if she can kiss on the first night, etc. JoJo asks if there is anything they regret, Kaitlyn says yes! Ali was like what might that be! That was funny. (For those that might not know she had sex on her show with someone other than who she picked…) Ali and Des try to tell her she needs to know the difference between love and lust. Good advice girls. Ali says, figure out who you like and then ignore them for a week…yeah not good advice. Ali opens the wound of being told I love you by Ben. Hmm Des was drinking water….did anyone catch that? (I see they announced her pregnancy a couple of weeks ago).
Now we get to see some intro videos, it would make the show long, but I wish we could see all of them.
Grant, 28-year-old firefighter from San Francisco. Ok he is hot, and wants someone to light his fire.
Jordan, 27-year-old former quarterback. Hmmmm. Aaron Rodgers little brother. That must suck. Whoa skinny jeans. He wants a wife, family, and best friend. He wants to be JoJos number one draft pick. I don’t like his hair. I have a cowlick too!
Alex, 25-year-old Marine. Oh he is a looker in that uniform! Oh his twin brother is too! Other than his vertical challenge, he is pretty cute.
James, 27-year-old Bachelor fan. Um that is not a job. He reminds me of some killers on L&O or Criminal Minds.
I wish I could figure out who he looks like. I swear it is one of the killers from L&O or Criminal Minds, I googled and will now have nightmares! Does anyone know who I am thinking of? I thought it was the dude who took Olivia.
Evan, 33-year-old from Nashville. He was a Pastor and now found another way to “lift people’s spirits”, he is am erectile dysfunction specialist. Oh my. “Pumps up my guys and gets them excited”. “It’s a hard business”. Oh my.
Ali, 27-year-old bartender. Whoa he is a looker. He has super successful siblings, and surfs and rides a skateboard with his dog. I guess that is rough at Thanksgiving.
Christian, is 26 and lives in LA, telecom consultant, and is into cross fit.
Finally, we meet Luke. He is a country boy from Texas. He is a 31-year-old Veteran. Hey I kind of like him, he seems like a nice and good guy. (I am going on record to predict he will be the Bachelor).
Oh no they don’t, bring Jake Pavelko? Before the commercial break they make us think Jake is there to find love, and we assume with JoJo!
JoJo drives a hot car!
There was a lot of this from JoJo
They have the guys chatting amongst themselves and Canadian Daniel is going to be the judgmental Lace of this season for sure!
Wells – tells her she is out of his league, and says he brought friends and a band pops out of the limo
So these guys are better in person than online, well on tv than online.
She comes in and thanks the guys for coming, Alex immediately takes her away (maybe he is Lace?), all of the guys trash him for being so forward (in reality they are just pissed that he beat them to the punch). He tells her he is a Marine, and ends up doing push-ups with her sitting on his tush.
Derek is now with her, and seems very shy.
They show her talking to kilt guy, who is nervous, and they have JoJo on camera saying, I wish these guys would relax.
She says she doesn’t have an instant connection, like she has the first night of Bens season. Cut to her with Jordan. He seems way more relaxed than everyone else.
Will does this fortune telling thing like we did in elementary school. The fortune was that he was gonna kiss her, and she says it was awkward, yep, it was.
Jordan comes and takes her, and kisses her. Yep he wins. No doubt. You saw it here first. (ok seriously it is all over the media….I won’t say it – but unless you are under a rock, you haven’t heard it here first). After the kiss she shouts about his butt and doing squats. Hmm did they do more than kiss?
Out comes the first impression rose.
The guys are unraveling a bit. They seem to be unraveling QUICKLY. Like faster than the girls? Or do I just have amnesia?
Chad and JoJo seem to have a connection.
Canadian comes up and says I have never been down there to Texas. I think he might be a bit drunk.
Ok so all of the guys are really drunk.
Oh Lord now we have Daniel is taking his cloths off. Dives in the pool. Please get rid of him. Well he isn’t TERRIBLE to look at I suppose.
These drunk guys are a train wreck. Vinny and James both interrupt her while in the interview room.
Ali is playing the piano. Really well. Oh he knows he is beautiful.
She sits on santas lap. And proceeds to uncover poor sweaty Nick, and then puts it back on.
Chats with James Taylor, they are cute. He seems to be there for the right reasons (hey someone has to say it!)
Texas boy Luke brings her boots. They are nice! They seem to really connect.
JoJo takes the first impression rose and takes it to Jordan. She tells him that the night was long and crazy for her but she couldn’t stop thinking about him. Of course he accepts it.
They show the rose ceremony starting and a limo pulling up and in walks Jake Pavelko, the guys are pissed. Apparently JoJo and Jake are family friends. He says I want love, …..for you. Lord. Yes take advice from Jake. He handled this situation really well. He tells her not to zero in on anyone. And to make sure not to put her walls up.
She eliminates six guys. Sal, Nick S., Jon, Coley, Jake, and Peter. You could cut about six more if ya asked me!
This episode reminded me – to keep watching until the very end of the show. There are usually fun outtakes. This episode The Bachelor Fan talking to Chris Harrison was so funny.
