After last night’s episode of the Bachelorette .. I am TOTALLY hooked. Not only do I adore JoJo and watching her … I am finally starting to get to know the guys a little bit better. This is when their true colours start to show through and you can start to see the connections they’re making …. and also NOT making with JoJo!!!! It really is crazy watching it all unfold from my perspective as I truly remember what it was like for me at this point in the game on both the Bachelor and Bachelorette ends. Now is when you need to be careful to not get too involved in your own head and try your best to be your true self. At this point, jealousy is rampant and EXTREMELY hard to control!!! You have been stuck with these guys for a few weeks now with no contact to the outside world and you are starting to feel CRAZY (who wouldn’t???)!!!! Every season … this is when it starts to get good!!!
My heart hurt for JoJo when she read the article in the tabloids about her ex-boyfriend. BUT … I do think that the guys made a bigger deal out of it then they needed to. Reading the tabloids is the same thing as reading your boyfriends text message … it’s always best to just ignore them because it will always cause you unnecessary stress and anxiety. It’s just not necessary blowing up about things that just don’t matter.
One of the hardest things for me wasn’t being on the show … it was dealing with the rumours and the tabloids afterwards. And yes a lot of the rumours were true … Ed flirted with other girls and “cheated on me” so they said … not to say he officially cheated on me but he admitted that he crossed the line. It’s hard because like I said a lot of the time those tabloids are bullshit but a lot of the time there is some truth in them as well. Perhaps JoJo still has some feelings for Chad, I don’t know … but there’s so many ways to look at it. This time in her life is so emotional and it could have been that she was in touch with him in between seasons … or maybe she did have a moment of weakness and went back to him, but I think that’s NORMAL. I remember in between when I was on the Bachelor and The Bachelorette I reconnected with some of my ex’s too … you feel rejected, you are heart broken, you are sad and SO emotional so you reach out to what’s easiest and comfortable. But just because she did this or might still have some feelings for him doesn’t mean that she can’t develop NEW feelings for someone else. Who says when you meet Prince Charming that everything HAS to be perfect and that there won’t be any overlap at all??? This is normal!!!! JoJo I am SO proud of you for taking the leap of faith in the end and deciding to go on the Bachelorette!!
Chad coming back to the house after JoJo sent him home was definitely “produced”. You aren’t allowed to go back unless the producers let you … and they DEFINITELY allowed it to happen for good TV!!! But if anything, it just made Chad look crazier than he already is and made the other guys who handled the situation look like heroes. I think it was a bad decision on Chads part but I don’t think he really cares. At least now, everyone has some closure and knows he’s not out there whistling in the woods lol!!!
Onto Robby who I NEVER noticed before this episode!?!?! Is anyone else with me on this??? Where did he come from??? He’s a little too manicured and perfect for me but maybe that’s what JoJo’s looking for?? I’m excited to see what happens with him!!! Oh and have any of you seen chads Instagram??? He’s hanging out with Robby’s ex-girlfriend …. uhmmmmmm is anyone else confused???
Moving on to Jordan …. he has been my number one for JoJo since day 1 but after last night … I’m not so sure!!! He’s a smooth talker and knows what to say at the right time. There’s a side of him that were not seeing yet and that worries me. He was totally caught off guard when JoJo confronted him about cheating on his girlfriend and the entire scene was awkward to watch. I really hope what his ex said isn’t true BUT who really knows??? Jordan is a bad boy and it sounds to me like he beats to his own drum … I know that JoJo is a good judge of character and I really hope she figures this one out for herself.
AND … I just have to say … I am SO happy that she finally sent Daniel home. When I thought it couldn’t get any worse it did… it was so painful to watch!!! I’m sorry Daniel I wish you the best …
I can’t finish off a Bachelorette blog without talking about JoJo’s clothes. She seriously once again has the best style and I don’t think it’s going away anytime soon. I have found some of her items for you and linked them below ….
Judging by the previews I can’t wait to see what happens next week!
