Here we go The Bachelorette JoJo Season 12 Episode 2!
We start off with some previews – lots of kissing. Lots of find that “love that Ben and Lauren have together”. Future drama coming with Chad…duh. We have been warned! Alex and Chad apparently get into it!
JoJo is on a balcony, she can’t believe she is the Bachelorette, believe it honey! She is hopeful to find that love that Ben and Lauren have…omg…is that 2x we have heard that already?
The guys are giving toasts, and Chad thinks the guys are SOOO BENEATH him.
Chris Harrison comes in and explains that there will be three dates. Leaves the first date card.
It’s a group date: Evan get’s up and reads the card: Luke, Grant, Will, Evan, Daniel, Vinny, Ali, James F. Wells, and Robby. “Let’s heat things up, JoJo”, they hear a big explosion and come running out to find a limo on fire in the driveway. A firetruck rolls up with JoJo on it in firefighting garb (she looks hot), and puts the fire out.
Chad lips off – shocker. He says he is way better, and the good car compared to all of those bad cars. Um ok.
They cut to Chad filling his luggage and strapping it to his waist and then doing pull ups. We can’t make this shit up.
The guys aren’t impressed. “meathead to the max”. Yep!
I would say timeout immediately if I was on this firefighter date, with a real firefighter, that seems like an unfair advantage. The man in charge says “JoJo wants to know who can take care of her in an emergency situation”.
Yep that is real world stuff right there. I hope Ben tested Lauren, since our goal is the love they have. They suit up and go head to head dragging a hose. Then they use an axe to break a door. Axe through a square on the ground.
Wells really struggles through the challenge, they need to drink more water…a medic has to treat Wells. He for sure get’s the sympathy from JoJo (hello he has seen this show before). I don’t think he did that on purpose but good for him.
They cut to the guys at the house sitting around singing. Can’t wait to hear what Chad has to say about that. Oh wait a minute, I don’t care.
Chad is not amused. He doesn’t understand how these people don’t really know her, and are singing a song about a woman they just met yesterday. He would NOT do that. Let me just say, the song wasn’t that great.
Back to the firefighting, three guys are chosen to fight for JoJo: Luke, Grant and Wells. Um Wells? That is kind of terrible, you almost passed out – so let’s make him work harder. They have to put a fire out and get to the top of a building to rescue JoJo. Luke takes an early lead, and Grant says he isn’t having it.
Can you guess who wins? The firefighter playing firefighter Grant.
Luke is so upset, he let JoJo go up in flames.
Grant rescues JoJo and carries her out of the building through a tiny hole.
Now we are at the cocktail party portion of the date. Luke is beating himself up still. Grant is now having alone time with JoJo.
Grant tells her that he will never leave the house and not wake her up and kiss her and tell her he loves her, since in his line of work, everyday could be your last. You know what, that is true for anyone and everyone, but I get what you are saying Grant. They of course make out.
The guys try to figure out who will get the date rose. Of course, they don’t know.
We cut to the guys at the house. Ding Dong. Date card! Everyone wants their name on that card.
Derek: Love is full of choices, Love JoJo
Back to the cocktail party, JoJo asks to talk to Wells. They have a cute little conversation. Wells is winning some points for sure this week. Wells has pictures of his dogs to show her, which is super cute…but hey I am a dog person.
Luke is unraveling. I think he may be the unraveler this season.
You get glimpses of conversations with everyone but Luke.
Finally, Luke gets some time. They seem to have really good conversation. They of course, make out. It was hot, I must say.
JoJo ends up giving Wells the group date rose. Unraveler (AKA Luke) is unravelling further.
Derek is getting ready for his date, he has to have his bags packed, in case he doesn’t get the rose.
JoJo explains that nothing is decided and they have to decide together on what they will do on their date. She says sky or sea? And they both say sky.
Now they have to choose North or South. They choose North. Dressed up or down. Both say down. Thumb wrestling.
Hmm be careful buddy, you are sounding like friend zone. They end up in San Francisco. Golden Gate Bridge or Lombard Street. They choose Golden Gate. They have a picnic with the bridge in the background.
“I’m so excited for my first 1-on-1. I couldn’t have picked a better guy to be with.” well JoJo let’s not get ahead of ourselves. She then says kiss or no kiss – KISS!
Cut to the guys at the house singing still, PLEASE fellas I need another verse!!
The two douchebags of the house – Daniel and Chad are chatting it up. Oh my goodness. Those two decide nice guys are the ones you have to watch. “if you are making a protein shake with the dudes here and blend it up….” hmmm Chad. Interesting. Daniel and Chad knew each other were cool. At least they have each other.
Another date card arrives. Wells reads it: Jordan, Christian, Nick, James T., Alex and Chad. “prove your love to me and the nation”
Chase points out who doesn’t have a date this week, including him. The voice of reason Chad speaks up, you have gone your whole life without a day with JoJo, can’t you go another couple of days. He might have a point. Shhhhhh don’t tell anyone I may have agreed with something he said.
Back to Derek’s date. JoJo asks him when his last relationship was. He said it ended a few years ago, and he closed off and it is hard to let people in, what an odd thing? JoJo talks about Ben and the season. She says that wasn’t my love story. Derek tells her they were ready for marriage in his last relationship and she cheated. They chat a bit more, and celebrate the choices they have made. Derek gets a rose. He seems like a great guy, a tad boring but a good guy.
Chad loves that all of the guys are talking about him.
Now JoJo is with Will (who?) and he is TP’ing trees with her. This of course feeds into Chad saying how immature and like college boys.
Oh Lord here we go. What is this the Chad show? Chad steals time from Alex. Whoa I am sure the Producers had a hand in that as well. They know there has been tension between these two already. Alex is livid. Gosh in their conversation, she should be seeing so many red flags with Chad.
James S. says how disrespectful Chad is with everyone in the house. The guys all seem to circle him and question him. LOL Chad says it is like West Side Story – lol that was so funny! Oh now he says it is the Care Bears surrounding him. Chad decides to go interrupt JoJo and Evan. How can she not see this nonsense? Alex of course decides to go find them. Chad gets in Alex’s face, and says he is gonna lose his teeth. Why didn’t the producers shut that down? They have for less in the past?
Now it is time for the Rose Ceremony. (with Chad eating throughout the ceremony).
Here we go again, Ben and Lauren love, that’s what I want. STOP SAYING THAT.
James T., Wells, and Derek all have roses.
And the guys who left this week are Will, James S. and Brandon (I kind of liked Will)
James S. was really torn up, I wish he would have pulled her aside and said what he had to say.
Next week, two episodes. Monday and Tuesday night, I may need to call out Wednesday! They show lots of drama with Chad and they show him hit a door and looks like he pushed Evan down, and James Taylor has some blood on his face, they want us to think that Chad did that, but I don’t know. Pushing Evan should be enough to earn him a ticket home. Let’s hope.
Christian treated JoJo to a bubble bath in the ending credits.
