Yay here we go for The Bachelor Episode 5!
We come back to the Corinne and Taylor and their fight. Oh please, I am so over the Corinne show. Taylor is annoying in this fight for sure, but ugh Corinne. Don’t they know that fights like this are always your ticket home? Drama is just drama.
Corinne decides to talk to Nick. She talks kind of cryptically then just says, a lot of the girls have had issues in the house with Taylor. They make out.
Rose Ceremony time.
Freezing Rose Ceremony Time. What is up with that – they are all freezing to death.
Nick gets a pep talk from Chris and then heads into the rose ceremony.
Kristina, Danielle and Raven have roses.
Whitney, Danielle, Jasmine, Rachel, Jaimi, Josephine (yeah we are just as shocked as you are), Vanessa, Alexis, Corrine and Taylor all get roses.
Sarah and Astrid leave.
Nick tells them they are going to New Orleans.
The girls get to New Orleans and head to the JW Marriott!
Chris comes in and says there are 3 dates this week: one on one, group, and a 2 on 1. He leaves the first date card. Rachel: Where have you beignet all my life? Cute. She is beaming.
Nick and Rachel head to the French Market. Why does Nick always sounds like he is talking through a kazoo? They stand around looking around making out, and lots of touching. They eat raw oysters, yuck.
Nick tells us he has the most explosive chemistry with Rachel than anyone else in the house. They go to Cafe Du Monde and get beignets. I have been there, and they are worth the looks they made!
They then stumble upon a second line (I had to look that up – basically a parade). Rachel let’s loose and they have a great time. Rachel is thrilled with Nick’s swag.
Naturally they go right by the hotel, just in time for the girls to watch. Nice job Producers. They end up in a club and do some more dancing to some live music. Did they ever tell us who that was? I kind of liked her. They run out and make out in front of some castle/churchy looking building. Now it is time for dinner. They go to some mardi gras float museum. Rachel explains what a second line is and says she was just here in one for a funeral. They talk about their parents and that they are still married. They discuss her father being a Federal Judge and that Nick is to not call him Sam, but sir or Mr. Lindsey. Hmmm foreshadowing? Nick talks about he is so afraid of having those meaningful serious questions like he had with Andi and Kaitlyn’s fathers. Rachel says, she had no idea she would be as into him as she is, this early. Nick says, he is really into her. He gives her the rose. Rachel tells us that she doesn’t believe in fairy tales, but this date was a fairy tale.
Date card arrives at the hotel. “Til death do us part” – Josephine, Kristina, Alexis, Raven, Jaimi, Vanessa, Danielle M, Whitney, Jasmine, Danielle L. Which means – of course Taylor and Corinne will be the 2 on 1.
The ladies arrive at the date for a haunted house (Housmas House). We got some good lines from Raven – Nick is looking fine as a dime. And she didn’t sign up for ghostbusters – if she sees a ghost she will rebuke it in the name of Jesus! So would I Raven, so would I!
They go inside and get mint juleps. They hear about Mae who is the 8-year-old who died there of the yellow fever. The house and the caretaker are very creepy. No Thank you. Nick does a toast: To Mae, May we not find her. They pull out a Ouija board – NO THANK YOU!!! I can’t even watch. I don’t like those things! Not my date!!!
Corinne is pampering herself and is still talking about herself and her fight with Taylor. She orders a lifetime supply of food.
Taylor is sniffing essential oils and doing yoga.
So very different how they are both preparing!
Back to the date. Honestly I had to fast forward a lot of it. Too creepy for me. We do see him making out with Danielle L.
Taylor and Corinne are getting a pep talk from Rachel about their 2 on 1 date. The card arrives – Corinne and Taylor – meet me in the bayou.
Danielle M and Nick has some nice time together. Then Raven and Nick, and she said she fell in love with him on their date last week.
Nick gives the group date rose to Danielle M.
Time for the 2 on 1.
Taylor tells us she is taking the high road, yes dear we will see. Then she tells us if Nick picks Corinne, he is thinking with his d@*k. Well ok then. They ride a boat through the Bayou.
Then end up at a Voodoo ceremony. They go to a tarot card reader. The reader is good, she says, it feels very tense. She asks if she can read Taylor alone.
Nick and Corinne go off together. She tells him she is excited to have time with him. Corinne tells Nick, that she feels obligated to tell him about a situation with her and Taylor, and says that Taylor emotionally attacked her and said she was stupid. Nick says, how did that make you feel? Um, Nick. Corinne said, well I felt bullied. She says that Taylor is very different alone with Corinne vs. when Nick is around. They make out.
Taylor and Nick walk off to talk. Nick says, obviously I just talked to Corinne, and the conversation was very surprising. He said well I know there are two sides to every story. He tells her exactly what Corinne said. Taylor tried to dig out, and they make out. Meanwhile, Corinne asks to make a voodoo doll for someone specific – um, I wonder who?
Taylor comes back and confronts Corinne. They naturally start bickering. Nick comes back, he tells us this isn’t about them but about how he feels. LOL. He thanks them both for being a part of this difficult situation, and he wants to keep people that he has an emotional connection with.
He gives the rose to Corinne. Corinne and Nick leave the bayou,
and Taylor is still there. FOREVER.
Corinne and Nick make out.
We see Taylor approach the voodoo group and has some ceremony. She tells us that she isn’t going home without seeking her peace or beast? Not entirely sure what she said!
Corinne and Nick are now at dinner in Danielle L’s dress. Corinne is obsessed and all she talks to the camera about is Taylor and that people are fine until they cross her. They show Taylor approaching and walking the streets. I guess the producers want her to be the Chad of this season. Nick and Corinne are telling each other how glad they are that each other is there. Taylor does show and say she isn’t leaving until she can tell him her truth.
Another To Be Continued. Can I just say, I hate starting episodes with rose ceremonies.
Episode 4 recap is here!
