The Bachelor: AKA The Emotional Rollercoaster Ride

Who else went on an emotional rollercoaster ride from hell watching last night’s episode of the Bachelor?!?! From anxiety to fuzzy feelings, to a terrifying haunted house to a dramatic ending, they seriously pulled out all the stops to f*ck with our emotions and it left me sitting there dumbfounded and totally confused on the couch.

Ohhh man … the cat fight between Corinne and Taylor … that was painful but I was kind of on Corinne’s side here, I think Taylor was dragging out the argument MUCH longer than it needed to be … however, I think these two could battle it out forever without getting tired. When it comes down to it they are both very young and immature … and it REALLY showed last night.

Taylor described her “talk” with Corrine as “exhausting, overwhelming and unproductive”… ummmm check, check and CHECK … when you’re right, you’re right Taylor. That’s exactly how we felt WATCHING it too!! LOL!!!

THEN Corinne basically goes straight to Nick to tattle on Taylor … as he sat there listening to Corinne’s side of the story I could just sense him mentally rolling his eyes over and over… LOL … most of the time guys think drama is nothing short of annoying and I gotta side with him, IT IS!!!!!


There’s only one way to deal with this drama BS and Nick has it nailed … BOTTOMS UP!!!


By the way, could they have had the rose ceremony in a colder location?!?! Holy smokes, the girls were shivering, it’s never good when you’re in a dress and can see your breath … unless you have your alcohol blanket on … which we all know Nick did that night. LOL!jillian-harris-bachelor-recap-episode-5-9

I gotta say, I was a little bummed out to see Sarah go last night, I thought she should have stayed … this episode definitely opened up my eyes to just how negative Taylor is (how did I not see that before?? Did you guys???) I kind of wish he gave that rose to Sarah instead and just sent Taylor home … that would have saved another plunge on this damn roller coaster of emotions.

The show then delivered a happy high!!! I was SO excited when Rachel got the one on one … I’ve been anxiously waiting to see them together on an intimate level ever since she got the first impression rose. Nick described their chemistry as EXPLOSIVE …. wow … if Corinne only knew that … lol … can you imagine how fast she would have that bouncy castle inflated?!?!

Nick and Rachel seem so ridiculously comfortable with each other, I know she said she had butterflies but she seemed so cool, calm and collected around him throughout the whole date, not to mention, the girl’s got moves too!! I was falling for her when they were dancing in the street …

I really do love them as a couple … I think she grounds him but also brings his playful side out, she’s the perfect mix of smart and sassy!!!

I thought it was REALLY cute when Nick asked Rachel about her parents and immediately got nervous when she told him that her dad is a judge … “Do I have to call him Sir? I mean, I’m going to call him Sir until he tells me to call him something else” … I think it was that exact moment when I realized just HOW intimidating it would be to be a guy and have to meet a girl’s DAD …. holy crap … poor guys lol!

Also … how SMOKIN HOT did Rachel looked during this convo?! She has a heart of gold AND she’s a stunner … it’s no surprise that Nick is totally SMITTEN with her! I LOVE how much he loves her confidence … it goes to show that you can knock a guy’s socks off without knocking his socks off … if ya know what I mean …. (insert slow winky face here … LOL) …


Then there was the group date … OMG … I w0uld 100% take shoveling shit over this date … it’s terrifying … I would have pooped my pants there … everything about it was just plain eerie … from “Boo” to the Ouija board … to the chandelier crashing down onto the ground … Danielle’s facial expression perfectly reflects how I felt about this … COUNT. ME. OUT.


BUUUTTT I actually don’t know what’s MORE terrifying, the haunted house or this image of Corinne … LOL!!!!! Sorry, Corinne, I just HAD to … it was the perfect pause … now I know why so many people tweet images of my hilarious facial expressions when they pause Love It or List It Vancouver … it’s just TOO good not to share … LOL!!!


I was so happy to see Danielle M get the rose on the group date, I love her so much but I THINK she might be too sweet for Nick … I honestly think he needs someone that’s just a bit more fiery …. and I also think that Nick really isn’t her type either, I picture her with a gentle giant type of a guy … like a sexy firefighter with big muscles and a heart of gold that sweeps her off her feet every night!! Like ………. MIKE!!! Do you remember Mike from Jasmine’s season of the Bachelorette Canada?! OMG how PERFECT would they be together?!?!

To back my point up … just feast your eyes on this …

jillian-harris-the-bachelor-episode-5-14Photo Credit

You’re welcome, ladies … LOL!!! Did I just become a matchmaker?! Hopefully he’s still single … wait, I’m SERIOUSLY getting ahead of myself here … considering she’s still fighting for Nick … LOL!!!!! My bad.

Alright, back to the show … Ohhhh my gosh …. the two on one date …

Side note (sorry, I’m all over the map today!!): I almost PEED my pants laughing when the tour guide jumped into the boat from the bank …. did anyone else notice that and watch it over and over?!?! LOL!!!

jillian-harris-bachelor-recap-episode-5-6Photo Credit

Okay, back to the date … ugh … I actually felt my blood pressure rise when watching Corinne and Taylor during the two on one date … the tension was so friggin thick you could cut it with a knife … I can’t imagine how awkward that WHOLE day would have been for the three of them. For a brief moment, I was thought that Nick might let BOTH of them go (and I was kind of secretly hoping it would happen to get rid of the drama) but he ended up giving Corinne the rose … and if looks could kill ….. she would have burst into flames from the glares Taylor was shooting her way.

BUT WAIT it’s not over … can you believe Taylor came BACK and interrupted the rest of their date … are you kidding me?!?! I’m dying to know what happens next because they made it seem like he ACTUALLY MIGHT send both of them home … omg … the chaos. I don’t think I can handle anymore to be continued episodes …

What are your thoughts on last night’s episode?! Actually, hold that thought … more importantly … how BADASS of a couple do you think Danielle and Mike would be?? Seriously …. I want this to happen … LOL!!



Ps. Valentine’s Day is QUICKLY approaching … if you have a main squeeze you might want to share yesterday’s gift guide with him as a “gentle reminder” … LOL!! Also … make sure to take a browse through the lookbook below for cute Valentine’s Day outfits for ANY date!!

    I’m completely shocked by the girls he is choosing to send home. I just KNEW it was going to be Josephine, Alexis, or Jasmine… but Sarah?? Come on! I obviously am completely baffled in his taste of women. They are all soooo different! There are a few I can see him with, but I just don’t see him and Rachel together. I know, I know. They just don’t “look” right together. I can see him more with Vanessa or Danielle I think. Maybe even Raven?? And I agree, Danielle M. is so quiet and seems more sophisticated for him. I don’t see them together in the end either…
    And I totally agree–I wish Nick would’ve just pushed both Taylor and Corrine out of the boat into the swamp and said “save the drama for your momma, ladies!”. Wouldn’t that have been a hoot– watching those two swim for their lives out of the gator-infested waters?? “Um, how do you make a voodoo doll for a specific person?” Really Corrine?? So. Stinkin’. Immature. I can’t WAIT until the Women Tell All and we get to see the other ladies’ reactions to everything she says. She is uber CRAY!

    Firstly, thanks for your Bachelor blog, I enjoy them very much….lol Very disappointed he sent Sarah home, I would have liked her staying over Taylor. Rachel is the perfect girl any family would welcome her. I don’t think Nick would be appropriate for her nor her Supreme Court Judge Father. I like Nick very much, unfortunately I can see him hurting her and she doesn’t deserve that. I can’t wait to see why and what Taylor has to say returning and interrupting a date. Thanks again Jillian for your blog, its fun!

    I found it so odd people seem to be blaming that long fight on Taylor, in the ITM’s Corrine called Taylor a b***ch multiple times (including a dumb b**ch at one point). All Taylor did was question Corrine’s intentions with Nick and her maturity (which, lets be real, is a valid point). At least she brought it up to her face in a non-heated manner instead of just talking behind her back like everyone else!

    I missed last nights episode but your review was all I needed! Thanks Jill!!

    Danielle M eh Jillian? I’ll have to look her up. More importantly I trust you as a matchmaker completely, you’re a cool cat ?. Also, I’m flattered, thank you for the kind words! Yes, I am still single. If I had cable I’d tune in but just like going onto the bachelorette canada without ever watching it prior, maybe it is best I approach this without a clue also 🙂 haha….in fact, I followed your 2 pieces of advice from one of your interviews going on the show and it worked out well, why wouldn’t I continue to follow your advice? -xoxo Mike ???‍???? @ogilmike

    I agree with Jillian, Mike, you and Danielle would make an awesome couple. Good job Jillian, now you just need to wait for the season to be over and make this happen for both of them!! Now do you have anybody in mind for Corinne? (wink, wink).

  7. Marie

    January 31st, 2017 at 8:26 pm

    Danielle is such a great catch! Mike! You guys would be so awesome together ????

    Ahhhh MIKE!!!! Thanks for chiming in, so happy you caught this!!! Great to hear you’re still single ? … I guess we will have to wait and see what happens but I think you two would be a great couple! LOL!!!! Just saying!!!! Hope you’re doing well!!! XOXOXO

    You had to bring up Mike! Yes I think he was totally hot but I don t think he has any guts, besides the six pack. If a girl doesn t mind wearing the pants all the time , then Mike is a good choice but something about him… I glad Jasmine chose Kevin over him, but really she should have been smarter and choose Mickeal. I wonder how she s doing with Kev?

    You are adorable….and I love THIS BLOG! I totally agreed with almost everything you said….and I really LOVE Rachel with Nick! Yup, that is my vote!

    Sort of happy to see Taylor come back as I was worried she might get eaten by an alligator when they jumped in the boat and left her alone in the swamp.

    I so agree with you that Danielle and Mike would be perfect for each other! Maybe they’ll be on the next bachelor paradise! After watching Nick and Rachel together the show is over for me! I had tears in my eyes observing the lovers in bloom! HE IS IN LOVE WITH HER!!!!! ?. NO DOUBT!!!! and it’s totally mutual!!! I’m seriously convinced they will end up together! I’m so happy for Nick, he deserves a great girl like Rachel ?can’t wait for the next episode, cheers, Corey from Vancouver Canada ?

    Totally replayed the tour guide jumping in to the boat over and over. Hilarious. Love Rachel! She’s down to earth, confident, and super cute!

    HAHA laughed all the way through this post… almost as much as when the guy jumped on the boat!!

    I have to agree with you, Mike and Danielle would make a great pair! If only we could push them together! But I don’t think Taylor is really that negative or immature. She’s probably lovely in the real world, but being around that wretch Corinne brings out her claws. I would probably be just as annoyed with Corinne, but I would just try to avoid her as much as possible. (& that psychic lady warned her not to engage! She did not listen). I could have lived without seeing that creepy group date, but Rachel’s one-on-one was fabulous. She is soooo cute and they are really good together. As for the 2 on one, they are probably trying to mislead us into thinking Corinne will go too. I wish. That is totally what he should have done, but he gave Corinne the rose. Is he really going to take it back? I think she’ll be around for one more week. Sigh. Oh, well. Enjoying Rachel, Vanessa and Raven, my current top 3!

    OMG, I love Mike! If I was single, I’d just march right down to that fire hall!
