Clear your Monday nights for the next few months because the Bachelorette is back and better than ever!
Rachel Lindsay who competed for the love of Nick Viall last season but ultimately was set home heartbroken is giving love another shot. And that shot will yet again be on reality TV. I mean, we can all agree that Rachel is too good for this show, but she seems like a cool gal and by far the most likeable bachelorette ever so we will support her through her journey.
So here goes nothing and we wish you nothing but the best, Rachel!
Here is a recap of last nights Bachelorette premiere:
Monday night we got to meet the 31 men who will be competing for Rachel's love... the good, the bad and the whaboom (If you watched, you know what I am talking about...if you didn't watch, keep reading). But that was not until after Rachel had a little #girlsquad meeting with some of her fellow contestants from Nick's seasons. The girls gave advice, talked about who may not have the right intentions, shed some tears, and wished Rachel the best of luck -- I secretly wonder if they are all jealous that they aren't the bachelorette.
Okay, time to get to the good stuff! THE MEN! Last night we met Kenny the wrestler who has a 10-year-old daughter, Jack the lawyer, Alex from Detroit, Mohit who likes to bollywood dance, Lucas (whaboom) who may be the most annoying person in the world, Blake the personal trainer who likes to talk about sex, Diggy who is passionate about fashion, Josiah who is a prosecutor, Peter who is CUTTEE, Bryan the Colombian who spoke to Rachel in spanish, Kenny with the dance moves, Rob who's a law student, Iggy (I don't remember much about him), Bryce the firefighter...enough said, Brady who broke the ice... literally. Annnnddd Fred who went to elementary school with Rachel, Jonathan who is a tickle monster (AWKWARD), Lee the singer/songwriter, Adam & Adam Jr. (the best part of the night), and Matt the penguin man. Okay, I know I forgot some, but I think ya get the point.
Now it's time for the men to drink too much, get sloppy and try to hold meaningful conversations with Rachel while competing against 31 other men for time. Isn't this how all relationships are formed?
This is when the claws come out and the men start getting jealous because they realize that the girl they are "dating" is dating like a million other guys. Nothing too spicy happens during cocktail hour excepppttt when Bryan the Columbian sweeps Rachel off her feet with a little latin romance and then a big ole smooch! I don't know about you guys, but I thought this looked really forced and aggressive, but apparently Rachel liked it...To each his own.
We are going to sidetrack for a second to talk about Adam & Adam Jr., and Lucas the whaboom guy. Let me first explain Adam and Adam Jr. or as some like to call him AJ. AJ is Adam's creepy doll that just randomly popped up in places throughout the episode, did interviews and took a nice nap by the fire. If you don't watch the Bachelorette, this is the only reason you need to start watching because AJ is the creepiest, most hilarious thing ever.
And onto whaboom guy, Lucas - the most annoying thing to happen to the Bachelorette ever. Lucas most likely does not have a job IRL because his job description says "Whaboom" and that is literally all he does. He walks around shaking his head really fast and screaming "WHABOOOM" into a megaphone like a child. I wanted to punch him in the face as soon as I saw him.
First impression rose time! This is when the men turn into little boys. Everyone seems pretty confident they will get the rose, but the problem is there is only one rose and that rose went to (drum roll, please) Bryan! The one guy who got a kiss on the first night (even if it was a little forced).
Who went home roseless: Grant, Kyle, Blake E., Milton, Mohit, Rob, Jedidiah, Blake K., Jonathon, and Michael (wait who?). Sorry guys! Better luck next time.
We are just so lucky that we get another week with Whaboom (the producers had something with him sticking around. ugh) and AJ (YESS).
This season on the Bachelorette:
Tears are shed, men are crying, men are bleeding, Rachel is laughing, Rachel is crying, there will be regrets and so much kissing -- if that didn't just sell you on the show, I don't know what will.
