JoJo’s Protein Shake Brings All The Boys To The Yard

One of the things that I always say at the start of every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and I’m saying it again … the first few episodes are really hard for me to get into. You’re trying to get to know all of the different characters and all of their drastically different personalities. It’s really hard to get past your first impressions of everyone and the show is doing a GREAT job at positioning the villains vs. the heart throbs. I’m starting to really see the connections with some … and realllllllly not like others … but if I had to pick “the one” for JoJo after last night, I don’t think I could!!

BUT … there is ONE character that stands out the most for me so far this season … and it’s JoJo’s wardrobe. Her wardrobe is so f*cking awesome it’s out of hand. That short sequin sheath dress, and that white lace collared shirt with the knee high boots. The two-piece white set. The leather pants and the cream fringe sweater!?!? I feel like I can’t get attached to any of the boys because I’m going to switch teams and ask JoJo to marry me she’s so cute and perfect. All I’m focused on so far is HER and her WARDROBE!!!

She looked so hot jumping out of the firetruck and in all of the gear, but how CHEESY was that scene!?!?! I almost felt awkward for her. That whole date was just too much for me. My heart melted for Wells when he couldn’t make it through the challenge, I think he’s so adorable. He will make the perfect husband and the best dad one day. But, knowing what I know about the show and the process I know that she isn’t going to pick him.

THE BACHELORETTE - "Episode 1202" - Twenty anxious men look to get their love story with JoJo off to a good start. The the first group date give ten lucky bachelors a chance to see sparks fly when they head for a firefighting training facility, where one of the guys might need saving himself. JoJo and Derek get to pick their own adventure, and they choose a romantic picnic by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Six bachelors get a dream date to ESPN's popular "SportsNation" with hosts Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley. They are sure they will be able to help JoJo find a perfect match, but Chad seems determined to "shock and awe" all the way up to the rose ceremony, on "The Bachelorette," MONDAY, MAY 30 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

And a quick side note … can we talk about how much Derek looks like the guy from the office … do they have the same parents??? Were they lost at childbirth!?! Are they brothers!?!?! lol ….

DEREK AND THE OFFICE

Ok and on to what we ALL want to talk about … CHAD!!!! When Chad was comparing love to a protein shake I literally wanted to throw up. My jaw hit the ground. Come on Chad take some more vita proxy cut (or whatever it is lol). And the fact that he was trying to justify why girls should pick the bad guy – that made absolutely no sense at all. I really enjoy watching him and think he’s great for entertainment purposes … but he obviously needs to go. BUT, we all know, he won’t go for a while … we love to hate him and I think JoJo is trying to see past his stupidity and find his honesty (if he has that)!?!? She is really doing her best at getting to know each and every guy AND giving them multiple chances. Either way, I don’t think he’s right for her in the end …

And one more thing …. what is up with Daniel!?!?! Dude you’re making us Canadians look so weird and creepy. I feel like he’s on this show just to be Chad’s cheerleader and next episode he’s going to be in a cheerleader outfit with pom pom’s cheering Chad on. He’s seriously more in love with Chad than he is with JoJo … does he know that JoJo is even there or WHY he is on the show??? Daniel … I know being in LA in front of the big screen is overwhelming but PULL YOUR SH*T TOGETHER!!!!! Kaitlyn Bristowe and I can’t be the only ones making Canada look good lolol!!!

tumblr_inline_o80qnc7Kgv1t1jybq_540.png.cf

One thing I DID notice that I wanted to bring up … is the fact that JoJo’s kissing A LOT of guys!!! It sort of reminds me of a short brunette Canadian Bachelorette that I know lol hint hint …

And on to my recap of the guys …

Chad – a little too full of himself!! I thought I would like him after the first episode and I thought JoJo would too … but after last night, that’s changed. He needs to keep eating and drinking his protein shakes and keep doing what he’s doing …. really!?!?!?!

Luke – I like the way that he opened up to her … I could potentially see a connection and will be keeping my eye on him .. I THINK he’ll be in the final 4

Robby – I really like him for JoJo and think he would mesh well with he family. I only saw him once this episode so don’t have much else to say …

Wells – is pretty cute – even though he couldn’t get through the first date, I felt for him and so did JoJo. BUT, I don’t think she picks him …

The Firefighter – is SO cute!!! I really like him …second kiss of the show WAHOO!!! (but I can’t remember his name …. so maybe that’s not a good thing!?)

Derek – he’s nice and has a great personality … but I’m not sure if he’s the one for her!?

Jordan – I didn’t really notice him this episode … was that on purpose??? BUT I do still think that they have a great connection ….

Well that’s it for this week … who are your front runners so far!? Check back next week to see if mine have changed!!!

    Ugh Chad. He has no sense of humor and he’s a doofus, though yes, of course we know he won’t be leaving for a while yet.
    I think Jordan is the one! They had a noticeable connection from the start and I think he would get along with her silly brothers!

    Haha, Derek is TOTALLY the guy from the office! My bf and I have said that a million times, I’m glad we’re not the only ones who noticed! I think Jordan is cute, but could be a d-bag… right now I’m really digging James Taylor – the sweetest! 🙂

    Yes to Derek! I kept calling him Jim by accident. That firefighter scene was so hard to watch, SO incredibly cheesy.

    Oh no! Why do I like Chad?! I think I might be the only one in the world right now. What he was doing with the suit case was so strange and I’m super concerned about the previews but I like how he’s keeping it real! I think that editing has a lot to do with how they are portrayed. I might change my mind next week and regret publicly sharing my secret of rooting for him.

    He is pretty darn good looking… A bit of a jerk, but hot. I really think Chad has issues…

    Totally agree on everything! I really liked Jordan, was also wondering if they didn’t show him much on purpose… Daniel is terrible and giving us all a bad name. I can barely look at him.
    Derek is TOTALLY the guy from the office! I’m so glad you said that because I couldn’t think who he looks like and it was driving me crazy!
    The firefighter’s name is Grant and I thought he was adorable..
    Surprise, surprise, Saint Nick is actually kinda cute… and has a real job.
    I liked Luke except when he was a sore loser about the challenge… kinda killed it for me. (I also seem to keep getting him and Alex confused… one is military and one is ex military… one is super short…that’s all I got.)
    Finally, I also thought that I really liked Christian, until they showed the bloopers with him stripping and that killed it for me.

    Ughh I feel strange about liking Chad now lol I have always been the girl to go after the “good guy” but I see a good guy deep down in Chad… I felt like he was heavily edited to look badly and I watched it with my boyfriend and he agreed that Chad seemed to be the only “real” and honest guy. Also, I kinda like that he is taking the process seriously….

    We Canadians are all praying that Daniel is sent home sooner than later…he is an embarrassment! 🙁

    So embarassing for Vancouver when there is Daniel who is a douche sucking up as a wannabe to Chad who is a legend in his own mind. It’s frustrating when you hope Jojo won’t be giving Daniel and Chad a rose and then she does! Both of them didn’t deserve a rose last time…..

  10. SimpleBacheloretteJunkie

    I think they cast Chad simply for stirring the pot and bringing a heavy dose of drama to this season. The group dates are pretty standard but they need to come up with better group date ideas…. (last year there was Sumo Wrestling, sex education class teaching
    a bunch of junior high students, et cetera). Wild guess that Chase (the guy who had brought in an artificial snow-maker on his one-on-one time with Jo Jo), Robby, or Luke are early favorites to be the Next Bachelor for season 21.

  11. BachelorNationFanClub

    June 1st, 2016 at 2:21 pm

    Every season they bring in former bachelorettes or bachelors to offer their perspective and advice to the new rookie bachelorette. They brought in Desiree, Kaitlyn, and Ali.
    For The Bachelorette Season 13, it would be nice if they brought in Jillian Harris,
    Trista Sutter, Deanna Stagliano, and Ashley Hebert (Rosenbaum) for a fresh advice session. Trista, Desiree, and Ashley Rosenbaum are the success stories of the Bachelorette. They would do well with offering their advice on how they made it work successfully finding their partner on the show and extending towards after the show finished airing.

    Jillian! You forgot about James!! How precious was his poem for her and their sweet moment?! ? Love your recaps!

    Whoever gets eliminated at the rose ceremony has the opportunity to be asked to go on BIP (Bachelor In Paradise). If you land in the top four and get sent home there is a chance you’ll be able to write a tell-all book or make club appearances for a good two years after The Bachelorette / Bachelor finishes airing. It is a good opportunity to have media exposure since millions of viewers tune in every week to watch
    The Bachelorette/Bachelor.
