My Bachelorette Recap: Let’s Do the Damn Thing!

Hey everyone!! I’t’s Mindy here and I’ll be taking over the Bachelorette recaps once again this season!! First off, can I just say that I’m actually super excited and so happy that things didn’t work out with Arie and Becca?? I totally put it out of my mind that they were even engaged, LOL!! I think she needs someone that will is sweet, playful, goofy and someone who has more than one move … sorry, Arie but the hand on the cheek and back of the head lean in kiss really gets old once you’ve seen it a million times in one season. LOL!!

I’m pretty excited to see how this season unfolds for Becca … it’s always so hard to tell at first but it SEEMS like she has a really good group of guys (mixed with a couple of flakes ?) … but I honestly do feel like her husband is among the group of guys and I feel like they are going to be quite the couple.

Jillian Harris Bachelorette Recap

So a few initial thoughts I have on the guys …


We need to address this awkward interaction … as soon as Becca saw Jake she was thrown off guard and it seemed like she felt super uncomfortable. When Becca addressed having met Jake a few times he seemed to push the question back into her court like he was totally avoiding the fact that he had the PRIME opportunity to take Becca out on a damn date when they were together. I’m sorry but … what the shit was he thinking?! I have a feeling there might be more to this story than what we know but I guess we will never know as she got rid of him STAT … and I applaud her for that move!

Jillian Harris Bachelorette Recap


Aka The Chicken … you guys … I am going to go out on a limb here and admit that I don’t like the costumes. Every time someone shows up in one I cringe, no matter what. I think it’s a BOLD move to show up in a costume but I just can’t get on board with them. However, with that being said, I DO think David is a sweetheart and I like his goofy sense of humour and he’s actually VERY cute … but the chicken costume can go back in the tickle trunk.

HE IS MY FAVE!!!! I hope he’s not pulling the wool over my eyes but he seems so freakin SWEET … and I have to admit … he is seriously good looking. Maybe my love for him stems from the fact that he looks like he could be Channing Tatum’s brother (look at the second photo below!) … or for the fact that he loves dogs, OR WINE?! Either way … he is my number 1 pick … for now. Fingers crossed he is genuinely who I think he is. Just do me a favour and go check out his Instagram … (yes, I’m a creeper!) … then let me know what you think! LOL!!!

Jillian Harris Bachelorette RecapJillian Harris Bachelorette Recap


You guys … he is a Former Harlem Globetrotter … he JUMPED OVER BECCA AND SLAM DUNKED. Do I need to say anything more? Didn’t think so … I’ll just pick my mouth up off of the floor and carry on!

Jillian Harris Bachelorette Recap


Did you know he’s a male model? And that he can’t turn left? LOL … Zoolander joke. I don’t have much more to say here other than I can’t wait to see his blue steel look. Maybe during the next rose ceremony?

Jillian Harris Bachelorette Recap


Kamil didn’t make it past the first rose ceremony which left me with one BURNING question about him … what EXACTLY is a Social Media Participant? Did anyone else notice that was his job title??? Well, with a little digging, I found my answer to this question … and it turns out, Kamil was JUST as confused about his title as we were, check out what he had to say about it in his recent Instagram post here!!

Jillian Harris Bachelorette Recap

Alright, I’m going to wrap this up here as I feel like we’re going to learn a LOT more during next week’s episode about these guys and I can’t wait to see what they’re all about and how Becca connects with them. In the meantime, I want to know who your favourite is based on last night’s episode so make sure to share your thoughts in the comments below!!

Until next week!

    Colton ??? If she doesn’t pick him in the end, my guess is he’ll be the next bachelor! 🙂

  2. Laurie

    May 29th, 2018 at 12:35 pm

    What about Garrett.?! How adorable was he pulling up in a minivan all equipped for a family!

  3. Kaylee

    May 29th, 2018 at 2:42 pm

    oh my word right?!! That would have won me over for sure!

  4. Valerie

    May 29th, 2018 at 12:44 pm

    There weren’t many that stuck out except for Colton! I really hope he is the real deal! Here are my top three: Colton, Garrett, and Christon.

  5. Gentry Adams

    May 29th, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    I love Colton & Garrett!! They are both front runners to me!

  6. Pamela

    May 29th, 2018 at 1:04 pm

    Yes Colton is a MAJOR hottie….but those are the ones you have to watch out for!! I’ve read that he dated Tia (from last season’s Bachelor) AND also Olympic gymnast Ali Raisman. Many are speculating that he’s in it for the fame. I guess we’ll have to wait & see.

  7. Kalie

    May 29th, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    Colton caught my eye but I’m worried he isn’t the most honest human….could be how they edited the previews, but I guess we will see! Front runners Garrett, Blake, and Colton. I really like Blake.

  8. Hannah

    May 29th, 2018 at 2:03 pm

    PRAYING Colton is as good as he seems! I wasn’t too sure about Garrett from his video, but as the episode went on, I liked him a lot more! And Christon with the dunk, DAMN!! I can definitely see some paradise potential in this cast of guys!

  9. Sheila

    May 29th, 2018 at 2:08 pm

    Loved Garrett!!! He seems very family orientated and an all around kinda guy! He threw me off initially with his goofy Reno NV intro, but he had me hooked when he was fishing in the stream. HOT!! He did get the first impression rose. So we shall see. He is my pick!!

  10. Shannon

    May 29th, 2018 at 2:35 pm

    Whoa! Nothing about Garrett! The fishing scene was so cute and he just seems down to earth! And Blake is a close second for sure! They were totally vibing! Male model boy can GTFO though…he’s too much.

  11. Kristy

    May 29th, 2018 at 3:03 pm

    Super cute Mindy! I love Colton too and Garrett… the globetrotter is such a sweetheart also. I’m sooo happy this show is finally back. I die waiting. Lol

    Hugs, Kristy

  12. Allison

    May 29th, 2018 at 4:24 pm

    Definitely Garrett! Maybe it’s because I’m a mom but I thought he seemed super legit (and not just because of the minivan!). Sweet personality, ready for a relationship- he’s 29! – and similar interests!

  13. Sharon

    May 29th, 2018 at 4:49 pm

    My top 3 starting with who is going the whole way. 1. Garrett(super cute, seems genuine and sweet and she already said her dad would love him) 2. Blake he seems super nice and just a really nice down to earth guy. 3. Colton obviously he’s good looking I just hope he isn’t pulling a fast one!

  14. Trixie

    May 29th, 2018 at 7:36 pm

    Clay !
    At our viewing party last night (we have one weekly ladies!!) we all agreed he SHONE and seems like the sweetest, most together guy. That he was so nervous meeting Becca made him that much more genuine. I hope he lasts for a long while cause that man is FINE

  15. Erin

    May 29th, 2018 at 8:10 pm

    Definitely not a Jordan fan… seems way too cocky and arrogant.

  16. Shawna

    May 29th, 2018 at 8:19 pm

    I love Colten I have been following him in Instagram for awhile and he’s nice on the eyes as well?

  17. Blanca

    May 29th, 2018 at 8:54 pm

    Garrett seemed super authentic, so he’s my pick. I heard some stuff about Tia & Colton so not sure about him but he is way cute. Ugh that model guy is so full of himself and super immature. So ready for him to be gone.

  18. Susan O'Connor

    May 29th, 2018 at 9:16 pm

    Colten!! My fave too! I mean why wouldn’t he be !!

  19. Paula

    May 29th, 2018 at 9:33 pm

    Loved Colton and Garrett in that order. Kind of like the professional football player….Cole I think. He was super nervous. I liked that.

  20. Gina

    May 29th, 2018 at 9:36 pm

    I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but does anyone else feel like there weren’t a lot of good looking guys for Becca? On Arie’s season he had A LOT of gorgeous women!!! And yes I know there’s way more to a relationship than looks but I was hoping that after what happened to her that every single guy would be drop down hot!

  21. Tanis S

    May 31st, 2018 at 1:25 pm

    I agree! Seemed like slim pickings from my perspective. But then it only takes one. Or a handful anyway. In some ways this may be a blessing because it may make her job a bit easier. Sometimes when guys are too good looking it’s hard to focus on the things you should be paying attention to!!!

  22. Meag

    May 29th, 2018 at 11:25 pm

    OK Mindy…you might have to run this one by Jillian, but how the heck does she remember all those names, and call the right guys, when it’s the first whirlwind night, that apparently ended as the sun came up?? Does someone stand beside her and tell her the right names? Always wondered this…
    I agree with the Colton, Blake, Garrett fans. I also thought Clay was pretty sweet. Was sad to see the grocery guy go…thought he would have been picked.

  23. Amber

    May 30th, 2018 at 5:57 am

    I love Blake and I LOVE Clay. Seems like an all around great guy from a great family. I secretly hope Clay loses so he can be the next bachelor.

  24. Bree

    May 30th, 2018 at 8:45 am

    Colton & Garret are my faves!! I hope they turn out to be as great as they seem ???

  25. Tanis S

    May 31st, 2018 at 1:21 pm

    Colton is my fave, too! Super cute, and adorable personality to match. Absolutely expected him to get the first impression rose and was shocked that he didn’t. I don’t see too many other guys that would interest me. Yet. Maybe a few will grow on me? I didn’t mind chicken-suit-guy, and agree with you about costumes in general. I get trying to make an instant impression, but why continue wearing the suit ALL night?! That model has got to go. If he hangs around for a while, I’m just going to ffwd through all of his scenes because I am already done with him!
