The Bachelor Breakdown: Week 2

So I realize that one of my New Year’s Resolutions is already off to a terrible start.  I set out to blog at least twice a week, and well, I already blew that.  I am going to give myself a little pass this week.  Usually I write my Bachelor blog WHILE I watch the Bachelor on Monday night.  However, this week I had a terrible headache, so I just laid on the couch instead of furiously typing away all of my thoughts on The Bachelor Week Two.  And then Tuesday through Thursday were crazy with extra tutoring sessions AND getting ready for my sister-in-law’s wedding weekend.  I’ve been busy, so I’m giving myself a pass.

But last week’s episode just provided SO MUCH blog content that I couldn’t resist commenting on a few key moments that I’m sure Bachelor fans will be talking about all season. I’m looking at you, Corinne.  And if you haven’t read last week’s recap, stop right now and catch up.

But before we dive in, I wanted to let everyone know that Bustle.com quoted my tweet in their recent article about Whitney Bishcoff throwing some kind of social media shade on her former fiancee.  So if you were ever wondering if I had the necessary credentials to analyze The Bachelor, just read the article.  I clearly do.

So let’s dive in to The Bachelor Week 2.  First of all, the dates for this week SUCKED.  I mean, I truly feel bad for the girls.  Not only do they have to pretend to be interested in Nick, but they don’t even get bad ass dates.  For those of you who missed week 2, there is really only one thing I need to fill you in on. HurriCorinne.

For the first group date, the girls are dressed up to model different “bridal” scenarios with Nick: shotgun wedding, traditional wedding, beach wedding, Adam and Eve’s wedding, etc.  As the girl’s are preparing for their “big day”, Corinne tells us at that she’s never been a “bridesmaid”. As a Southern gal myself, I can tell you the fact that she’s in her early twenties and never been a bridesmaid is a HUGE red flag. But no level of “red flag” could have prepared America for this moment…

While Corrine and Nick were taking their wedding pictures in the pool, she takes her top off (in front of God and everyone) and forces (well, I’m sure forces is an exaggeration) Nick to strategically place his hands over Ta-Tas.  And while everyone was busy picking up their jaws off the floor, Nick was setting back feminism by a solid decade by giving her the first impression rose.  If we are going to be keeping Corinne around for a while, the least Chris Harrison can do for us is offer a dual screen display: The Bachelor on the left and a live feed of Corinne’s parents watching each episode on the right.  Can I get an amen?

And in case you hadn’t heard, Liz hooked up with Nick at Jade and Tanner’s wedding.

I mean seriously though.  If you took a drink every time that line was referenced each episode, you would be calling in sick for work on Tuesday.

She finally got to confront him in their fake break-up at the Museum of Broken Dreams (Apparently, this is a real place for really sad people.)  At the end of the day, Nick couldn’t get the thought that Liz conveniently went on television to pursue him instead of doing so in real life out of his mind, so he sent her packing before the rose ceremony.

Speaking of roses, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  I’ve rounded up a few festive options depending on how casual or fancy your date plans may be.  And I promise, I’ll be back to “live blogging” The Bachelor tomorrow!

Valentine’s Date Inspiration

Cheers,

Erin

    I’ve always found that I do a better job of meeting goals if I see them as lifestyle changes. For some reason it’s real easy to fall short if it’s a new years resolution. Good luck with your posting goals and I hope you get to enjoy the next episode headache free.

    I do not watch the Bachelor, but after reading this I am very tempted to watch an episode. I can see myself becoming hooked on the spot.
