I keep getting behind in posts and more is coming tonight and tomorrow! I decided, I had to watch and write this weekend!!
We left off – with you guessed it No Rose Ceremony. 2 full 2 hour episodes and no rose ceremony!
The girls are still upset and nervous about having the power of giving out the roses, and some feel the boys are there for boy time and no for romantic connections.
Adam shows up with a date card so he asks the guys who is off limits, they say basically everyone is available except Taylor.
He pulls Kristina aside and they seem to hit it off, and then Raven. He spent some time with Raven before – and again they seem to hit it off. He tells us he needs to sleep on who he will ask on the date but his heart says Kristina, but his gut says Raven.
Adam is very afraid of moths. It was pretty funny!
The gut wins and he asks Raven out, she accepts.
Kristina is very worried about her relationship with Dean, she says he isn’t very communicative. Jack says he is like dating in middle school! Which was funny.
Adam and Raven have a great date and seem really great together.
Raven is torn between Ben Z and Adam.
The cocktail party prior to ceremony is a lot of scrambling for the guys. Raven tells Ben that she doesn’t know what she is gonna do.
Robby decides, he doesn’t want to fight with 2 other guys for Raven, so moves on to Amanda, but apparently he is friends with Josh, so there is that little sticky-ness. Robby asks Amanda for a kiss, and she says she isn’t ready.
Taylor and Derek are definitely together.
Iggy is trying to get Lacey’s rose. Diggy (since only rhyming names should make moves on Lacey) moves in on Lacey too.
Alex is still working on Amanda. She tells him that she is giving her rose to someone else. Hey at least she is honest. Now Alex, poor little guy, is scrambling.
Dean pulls Kristina aside, and of course tells us, he did this so he gets a rose, but he also told us, they need to slow things down. He tells her, he doesn’t care about the rose ceremony, but he wants to stay and spend time with her. Wow, he is very middle school.
Taylor to Derek
Jasmine to Matt
Raven to Adam
Alexis to Jack Stone
Lacey to Diggy
Danielle to Ben
Kristina to Dean
Amanda to Robby
Alex, Vinny (:(), Nick, Iggy all go home.
Poor Vinny and that seatbelt!
Danielle L walks in. With her girls on display! Her date card says let’s leave everyone in the dust. The guys are melting, and the girls are freaking!
Danielle tells the ladies she is interested in Ben and Dean.
Side note – how does she keeps her boobs in there?? Hugging all of those people? I mean really?
Danielle pulls Ben aside. He seems to be playing for friend card, why does he do that! He tells her that Dean has been with Kristina from the beginning.
Dean tells Danielle that he and Kristina took a step back the night before, well you were certainly glad to get Kristina’s rose last night! Danielle asks Dean on the date, and he accepts, doesn’t even say a word to Kristina.
Dean pulls Kristina and asks her how she is doing, she tells him to have fun. He tells her not to hate him, he wants his cake and wants to eat it too!
Danielle and Dean go 4-wheeling and they seem to have fun, but frankly that would be fun! I find her laugh very annoying and possibly fake. I do feel for her – though I mean being brought in and having to ask a date.
Dean chats with a few of the guys -and I swear they told him to get her a drink and go find her, he walks in and she is talking to Amanda and Danielle and had 1 drink and he was about to walk away. She goes with him, and he tells her that they had a good time, and had a peck.
Danielle L is talking to the girls, and she tells them that he did tell her about Kristina, but that they were pumping the breaks.
Dean and Kristina are chatting and pinky swear and she says, is she a better kisser, just kidding, sort of. 🙂 so cute. Kristina bounces back fast! I would not have, but of course I have the benefit of seeing what went down with DLo and DeanLO! 🙂
The end of the episode was so bizarre. I don’t understand Dean. They are all sitting by the bonfire and he is all over Kristina, then he gets up and goes and gets a 1/2 birthday cake for DLo, which seems very much like a producer move to me.
Kristina leaves in tears.
This morning starts off with everyone seeming worried and feeling like things are weird. Matt has a chat with Kristina, and he sees that she is shutting down.
Sarah comes in, and Raven knows that Sarah has her eyes on Adam, so is worried. Sarah asks Adam what is going on with Raven, because she doesn’t want to step on toes. Sarah goes to the ladies, and Raven says, you have a blessing to go after Adam if that is what she wants, but she adds that Ben is available and great. The girls are overselling Ben. Sarah is seeing that very clearly. Sarah goes to talk to Ben, and of course Ben starts selling the dog. Why doesn’t someone tell him to stop doing that!
Sarah asks Adam and he accepts. Adam tells us, he immediately wondered what Raven would be thinking! Raven tells the girls that if he comes back into Sarah, she is done.
Adam is talking to the camera and says Rachel! LOL I swear he said he had never been on a date, um didn’t you go with Raven? Adam tells us that Sarah has something that Raven doesn’t. They make out. They go dancing, and make out some more. Of course Adam says he is feeling conflicted between the two.
Danielle and Wells are chatting, and Wells asks her if there is anyone there for him. She is telling us that he is totally the best and datable, they joke about making a deal about hooking up if they are still single at 40 or even better 5 years from now!
Lacey wants a date care, as she doesn’t feel like anyone is really interested in her. And of course, she gets a date card! She decides to ask all of the guys if they want romance. She knows – romance can come after friendship?? She finally decides to ask Diggy, and he accepts. Ugh, she is exhausting. Not sure if it is just her edit, or if she truly is.
Jorge is there and takes them horse back riding. The date feels more like a 2 on 1 date. Diggy finally asks Jorge if they can be alone, and there is some chatting and making out.
Danielle has an opportunity to go work in Africa, and decides to leave to do that. She doesn’t feel romance for anyone. Raven and Danielle are chatting, and Wells comes up, and Danielle says he isn’t looking to date anyone, at the same time Wells is talking to Jack about Danielle and how she is a great girl and out of his league. DING DING DING. That 5 year pact isn’t going to ever come to fruition!!!
Lacey and Diggy get back from the date and are beaming and in comes Dominique.
LOL they cut back on the graphic designer budget! LOL Jasmine’s bathing suit must have been skimpy!
Dominique has her eye on Diggy and I think vice versa. Lacey is very worried that Taylor is going to work on matching Dominique and Diggy up. And naturally, that is what happens. Taylor and Dominique are besties. Lacey is unraveling. They make it seem like she overheard Taylor telling Dominique that Diggy hasn’t connected with anyone or liked anyone. Dominique asks Diggy and he accepts.
Diggy and Dominique’s date is on, and he tells her that he thinks Lacey and he are on a different page.
Taylor does Taylor and runs to Lacey to try to comfort her, which doesn’t work. Lacey says, we were back for 11 minutes, and everyone is so quick to match making everyone…and that they should just let people make up their own mind.
Diggy and Dom are making out with strawberries, and he says, he wants to see what that strawberry felt! LOL so they make out and end up in a hot tub.
Danielle is saying goodbye to everyone and goes to say bye to Wells, and he asks if he can walk her out, he takes her bag and they are hugging, and then all of the sudden kissing!
Both seem shocked and thrilled at the same time! Yay.
We are now in the studio with Chris, Raven, Jasmine, Derek, Diggy and Robby to discuss the shut down and what went down. Awkwardly Chris asks Raven how the kiss with Robby was, she pleads the 5th, and Robby was very polite.
They play some clips and the cast there says, nothing felt off or out of the ordinary. Raven and the rest say there were no concerns from DeMario or Corinne. The cast say that they were all shocked, and were appalled by the reaction of America and the Media. Raven tells us that she already had doubts about DeMario, but she says she would defend him, and that she feels nothing went down that was inappropriate. At the same time, they aren’t slut-shaming Corinne either.
Evan & Carly show up to discuss all of their news. Evan is asked about getting himself out of the friend zone. They are the cutest thing ever, Carly is a lucky girl and Evan is a lucky man! They share that they are pregnant! Turns out that they actually found out while they were in Mexico. Full circle, folks, full circle. They did a fake ultrasound, sorry, I don’t believe that was real! But really, what do I know.
DeMario comes to tell his side of the story. Chris asks if DeMario knew Corinne before, he said all he knew is she was the wild one from Nick’s Season. DeMario says that things move very quickly, I believe he said “turnt up”. He says they were at the bar drinking and making out, and then she asked him to go to the pool. At the end of the first day, he thought everything was fine. The next morning, he and Corinne talked, and he never knew there was a possible problem. He was told that a third party filed a complaint about he and Corinne. He asked the Producer, why are we even discussing this, I am fine, she is fine, there are no issues. He was very emotional, and I actually gained a lot of respect for him.
We are told Corinne will be there next week (this week if you are really paying attention since this week is now when this post is going out – ok that was a confusing sentence!).
