So I am behind on posts. Shocking, I know.
This post will recap The Bachelor Colton Episode 1, 2, 3, & 4
I watched all of the episodes this weekend (1, 2, and 3) and 4 today…SO I will give ya’ll the nitty gritty.
First Impression Rose
So, all I really have to say about Hannah is she is one weird kisser.
There is loads of focus on Colton’s virginity. Seriously, constant! This is gonna get old.
Adrianne “Jane”, Devin, Laura, Revian, Erin, Tahzjuan, and Alex D.
One on One Date
Hannah B. It happens to be her birthday, so that is kind of cool. They go horse back riding and find a hot tub in the middle of nowhere. Shocking. The date was pretty awkward at times.
She gets the rose.
Demi, Bri, Tracey, Elyse, Hannah G., Nicole, Onyeka, and Catherine. They go and meet Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman and learn that they are going to tell stories about their “firsts”. Great more sexual innuendo.
Elyse gets the group date rose.
Alex, Erika, Katie, Caelynn, Sydney, Tayshia, Nina, Kirpa, Caitlin, Courtney, Cassie and Heather. This date is heading to camp. We get into 2 teams and the winning team gets to spend the night at camp with Colton! Scandalous!!
Heather, Alex, Katie, Tayshia, Caelynn and Cassie were on the team that wins. Heather tells Colton that she has never kissed anyone. She tells us and some of the girls that she was SOOO nervous to tell him this. Well, Colton is a virgin – so he is one of the best people to tell the too.
Heather gets the group date rose.
Demi stirs things up by coming down in a bathrobe and stealing away Colton. She gives him a massage.
One other note on this episode, this is where we first learn about the beauty queen drama forthcoming. Caelynn and Hannah B are both beauty queens, and knew each other before the show. There is a lot of animosity between these two.
Alex B., Angelique, Erika, and Annie
One on One Date
Elyse. They take a helicopter to San Diego and went to an amusement park with a bunch of kids, I believe related to some charity work that Colton does.
During dinner, Elyse shares that her sister was diagnosed with cancer when she was pregnant, completed the pregnancy and died shortly after the birth. So sad. Colton is very attentive and clearly moved by her story. She got the rose. They then go to a concert for someone, we have never heard of, Tenille Arts.
The Pirate Date. The girls dressed up in pirate outfits and did pirate stuff and one of them gets to save Colton. Demi made a funny: “I don’t want to be another one of those yo-ho-hos,”.
Hannah brings up her drama with Caelynn in her one on one time with Colton. Ladies, this never bodes well when you bad mouth other contestants to the lead. Colton was very upset, I mean what did she think he was gonna feel like? He wouldn’t really kiss her and Hannah is like, damn he hates me.
Right after this, he gives Caelynn the group date rose. Shazam, take that Hannah B.
Let’s workout, no thanks. The girls competed to see who’s the Strongest Bachelor Woman, which naturally, means who can push a sled with a weighted wedding cake through the sand. Why, not. Onyeka won.
Colton sent Caitlin home during this date. Nicole got the group date rose.
Instead of a pre-rose ceremony cocktail party, they had a pool party, which, let’s face it was just so we could see Colton being shirtless. He told Hannah G. that even though she didn’t get a date this week, she has nothing to worry about. Hannah B. saw Colton talking to Caelynn and described herself as a “beautiful monster” with a “tank of rage” inside of her who was going to destroy Caelynn. Um, that’s scary. If she doesn’t win, she for sure will be on Bachelor in Paradise, no doubt! and of course Caelynn too!
Caelynn decided to bad mouth Hannah B. to Colton. Her synopsis, She did better at Miss USA and Hannah got jealous and mean. She goes on to describe Hannah as “manipulative,” “toxic” and “deceitful.” Of course Hannah describes Caelynn as “fake.” Colton didn’t know which of these deceitful Miss USA alumni to believe, not even after Hannah said “Just freakin’ trust me!” Please, just send them both home, nobody needs this drama!
Colton was very stressed out and even met with a producer, and then even the big guns, Chris Harrison.
Caitlin during the group date. Nina, Catherine and Bri.
Everyone heads to Singapore!
One on One Date
Tayshia Adams – They go Bungee Jumping. Lots of making out in the ocean. Tayshia reveals that she was married and wants to marry again, for good. She gets a rose.
13 women go on this group date. Shew. I am exhausted just thinking of going out with 13 people at one time. Demi wanted to be the center of Colton’s attention, jumping on him, piggy back riding…etc. she is exhausting. The next part of this fabulous date, not, is going to a leech therapy place. Lord, no thank you. Next up, what is this Fear Factor? They eat gross food. Frog, eel, eye balls, pigs feet.
Hannah B. quickly pulled Colton aside and asked if he trusted her. He told her that today he felt like he got his Hannah back. “His Hannah”. – what does that even mean, you have gone on 1 date, and known each other 4 days/weeks…how long is between each week? Hmm, never really thought about that. Anyway, they made out, and she felt better.
Demi shared her unconditional love for her locked up mom.
Courtney, who, is unraveling and desperate for one on one time with Colton, but does nothing about it. She and Demi get in a tiff. Demi goes to talk to Colton again, which pisses Courtney off AGAIN.
Demi got the group date rose. Lord, Courtney was pissed!!!
One on One Date
Caelynn – they go shopping, he buys her everything. Colton told Caelynn that when he splurges, he has to make sure he’s doing it on someone worthwhile, right, like he paid for it. Naturally, Caelynn goes back to the house to show off her loot mid-date. Why do they do that to these ladies? Hannah is clearly salty, but so are the other ladies.
Caelynn told Colton about being drugged and sexually assaulted by multiple men at a party when she was in college. The police and the hospital wouldn’t help her. One of the perpetrators was expelled, but the other three got away with it. It was horrible. I can’t get over how poised Caelynn remained. Colton assure her that she was safe with him. He talked about how he was in a relationship with someone who was sexually abused and how hard it was to see her pain. And then he talked about his virginity again, in the context of his relationship with his previous girlfriend, and said it was complicated. But mostly he just listened, which is the right thing to do. I was impressed with how ABC aired this, it felt unedited, and I noted there was no music during it.
She gets a rose.
Hannah G. goes to Colton’s room and told him she was nervous about opening up, and he basically said “that’s fine, you’re so pretty,” and they made out a lot.
Caelynn initiated a conversation with Hannah B. “Why not be supportive of one another?” Caelynn said. They apologized to each other, and it seemed OK, like they were going to move on. They won’t be friends, but they don’t have to be enemies, either. We’ll see how that holds up.
Tracy and Courtney
SO that gets everyone caught up. This season has been ok so far. I mean, I am not willing to not watch – so that is saying something. If I were Colton, I would have gotten rid of the Beauty Queens, and Demi is Corine all over again.
Who is still there?
What do you think so far? I like Tayshia, Cassie, Katie, and Elyse a lot. I think Colton likes Caelynn and think she might be in the lead currently. I certainly hope he isn’t liking Demi. He also seems to really like Hannah G., but I find her awfully boring.
