Good morning everyone!! Mindy here!! I’ll be taking over Jillian’s blog EVERY week to share my thoughts on this season of THE BACHELOR!!! Now … before you freak out … don’t worry, Jill will still be sharing her thoughts throughout this entire season but there will be some days that she won’t be able to catch the episode, which is why I’m here!
Lucky for us, Jillian was in Vancouver this Monday and had some downtime in her hotel room and was able to catch the premiere of The Bachelor!! So, this morning I hopped on a call with her and picked her brain! I’ll be sharing her thoughts, predictions and some insider info below!!
Ready to dive in?? Take a look at Jillian’s thoughts (and my thoughts mixed in!!) below!
When it comes to Colton, Jillian is on the fence … she obviously thinks he’s handsome (I agree 🙋🏼) and sweet but the virginity thing is throwing her off! She can’t wrap her head around it and I TOTALLY get it!! It’s not every day you come across a total hunk who is athletic and played football … is sweet, caring, and a VIRGIN! Right?!
I questioned his sincerity about this for a while when he first admitted his virginity. I thought to myself, there’s no way in hell that’s true. But, I’ll also be the first to admit that as time passes by and the more I hear him talk about it … the more I think it’s actually TRUE. What do you guys think??
Either way, one thing Jillian said she knows for sure, is that Colton is there for the right reasons and I have to agree with her (again!!) on that one!!
Jillian and I chatted about the girls on this season and we both feel that this is such a stand-up group of girls!!! Every single girl on the show is beautiful, smart, and funny!! I mean, to be fair, Monday was night ONE so I’m sure the claws are about to come out soon as everyone is on their best behavior right now! LOL!
What’s Up with the Sloth?
The sloth was soooo odd! I mean, I guess it’s not that odd considering there have been many costumes on the show before (ALEXIS SHARK (or dolphin??) doo doo doo doo) but it was a bit strange! As was the box filled with butterflies and Miss North Carolina’s sash! HOWEVER, Jillian filled me in on this and WHY these sort of things pop up in the show!
Bottom line is, it’s something the producers make you do! Sometimes the girls come up with these ideas on their own for sure but most of the time these sort of ideas are a producer thing! Crazy right?! But I guess that’s why they’re producers … to SHAKE things up!!
The Alumni’s & Viewing Parties
Jillian and I had TOTALLY different views on this! Jillian, as an alumna herself, loved seeing all of the alumni’s hosting the viewing parties around the world!
Myself, on the other hand, as a viewer, didn’t like it ONE BIT! I mean, yes, it’s a cool throwback to see all of the alumni’s but I REALLY just wanted to get on with the show and was frustrated at the fact that it took up SO MUCH of the premiere!
Ps. ABC … Jillian is wondering if her invite got lost in the mail?! C’mon guys … lol!!
We have a feeling there are a few girls that might be the Villians of the show! In no particular order … they are:
While Jillian loves the fact that Alex is a Canadian girl … there’s something off about the music they play every time they show her! Is it a subliminal message? Is she a villain in disguise?
Jillian is predicting that Catherine will be the next to go home as she doesn’t think Colton will be game for watching her dog for any longer than he has to! I agree that Colton probably doesn’t want to look after her dog (how weird is that?!) … but I feel like she may be around for a while!
I’m not entirely sure Demi is a villain per se… but I DO think she is trouble … anyone else?
When it comes down to WHO will get the FINAL ROSE … Jillian is betting on CASSIE!! Cassie is not only adorable but she also has a selfless career as a Speech Pathologist and seems so down to earth!!
I TOTALLY agree that Cassie will make top three for sure but I also think Hannah G. is in the running as Colton seemed to REALLY connect with her (and she got the first impression rose!!!).
A Favour to Ask
Now … before we wrap this blog up … Jillian would love if EVERYONE went onto The Bachelor Instagram page (which you can find HERE!) and start a petition for them to put Jillian’s season up on iTunes!! LOL!!! It’s one of the only ones not on there … and how BADLY would you want to see it???
Make sure to share your thoughts on the premiere below and we will catch up again next week!
Mindy (and Jilly!)
