Jordan's ego is too big for his golden britches on #thebachelorette

I don't think I've gotten to start and stay on track with the live airing of The Bachelorette once this season. I tried once.

Tonight, I taught VBS, came home, ate dinner, started some photo uploads, and at 10 PM am just getting started. Seems to be the time I get going every time. 

So, we were at the cocktail party when the episode ended last week. Clay went home with a broken wrist, and that's where we left it. Tonight, Becca is still talking to some guys. She and Blake talk about how many children they want to have and what they want to name their daughters.

All the men sit around seriously discussion the severity of David's fall from the bunk bed. Jordan has an odd camera interview where he says he talks to God daily and some people that go against him wind up hurt. I guess he is alluding to having God smite David. Jordan's ego is too big for his britches.  

Speaking of Jordan and britches, when he gets time alone with Becca, she gives him a pair of golden shorts. Like Joseph and his coat of many colors... (Sorry, that's the lesson I covered multiple times tonight - three official lessons taught.) The man thinks there are men in the house who thinks he is the best looking man in the house. I don't know that any of them think that.

David arrives back at the mansion to a warm reception from the men. He looks rough. Becca takes him off to talk. So that he doesn't have to stand through the rose ceremony, she gives him a rose early so he can go rest. He shows off the rose to the men, then heads up to sleep. 

Now for the rest of the roses...

Recap: Chris and Colton have roses from last week's dates. Clay got a rose on his date, but went home to have wrist surgery. David got the pity rose. (Jordan just used the same term, after I did, which makes me sad.)
  1. Jason
  2. Wills
  3. Nick (Who is wearing a track suit for some reason. I don't know why. Didn't notice before.)
  4. Christon
  5. Lincoln
  6. Blake
  7. Garrett
  8. Leo (Surprised he is still there.)
  9. John
  10. Connor
  11. Jordan (grrrrr...)
  12. Jean Blanc
That means that Mike and Ryan are gone. They weren't memorable. Mike and a man bun, but I had to try to figure out Ryan's name to type it here. 

It's time to leave the mansion. They all pack up to leave for Park City, Utah.

Becca comes to visit the guys in their cabin. She picks up Garrett for the one-on-one date. He got the first impression rose, so she's had a thing for him from the get go. She admits he gives her butterflies and she finds him attractive (to the camera, not to him). Becca thinks her dad would have liked him. 

Back at the cabin, the men try to convince Lincoln that the world is not flat. Something about a belief in friction... Supposedly, he is serious...

Back to the date. Onto the ski lift. Since they are at Olympic Park, they are going to go bobsledding. They are being coached by 2006 silver medalist bobsledders who were a team and fell in love. (Raised eyebrow. #convenient) They actually do a four man bobsled. 

As they go into dinner time, Becca says the day was a 10 out of 10. She tells Garrett that he reminds her of her dad because of their love for adventure and the outdoors. 

When it's time to talk about past relationships, Garrett talks about the last time he was in love. He reveals he was previously married. They were together for a year and a half before they got engaged, a year before they got married, then were only married two months before they got divorced. Hmmm. That's when he realized he feel in love and got married to the wrong person. This raises red flags.

Date card time... "Jordan, Chris, Blake, Nick, John, Lincoln, Leo, David, Connor, Christon, Jason, Colton, Jean Blanc..."

That means Wills is the one left for the other one-on-one date. 

Becca starts asking more questions about Garrett's ex-wife. He says she was emotionally abusive, building him up and tearing him down. She drove a wedge between him and his family. Becca asks about what if he's not ready when the time comes to propose. Garrett says he's had two years to start to heal and won't say "I love you" until he's serious about someone. 

He does end up with the date rose. Time for a concert and dancing to Granger Smith. 

The date... lumberjack competition. The Lumber Jack and Jill fell in love through the sport, by the way. 

First up, everyone tries their hand at splitting wood with an ax. Most of the guys do well. Some embarrass themselves. There's an ax throw and log flipping. All this is practice for the big competition. 

The men are divided into teams and compete relay style. The Golden Ax goes to John. 

That night, Becca comes to the conclusion Jason is a good kisser. Jordan is wearing his golden underwear. He takes off his pants to prove it. Then he goes back out to the men sharing them off. 

Chris and Colton take Jordan out to tell him what they think about how he's behaving. That goes over real well.

Jean Blanc gives him some perfume because that's his thing. He awkwardly tries to kiss her. It didn't go well. She's probably relieved Leo interrupts. He goes back for a second conversation. Becca tells her he's coming on too intense and she's not sure she's on the same page. She decides to cut him loose and walk him out. He asks about the gift he just gave her. It gets weirder. He says something that makes her question which parts of what he said were honest. He takes back what he said about falling in love with her when she doesn't reciprocate. It puts her in a funk, so she goes back in and tells the rest of the guys she wants them to be sincere with her. She decides not to give out the date rose. 

The next day before her date with Wills, Becca is still shaken up. She starts off the date for apologizing for her funk. They set off on a snowmobile. The whole thing seems mellow. 

The dinner portion is a snoozefest too. They talk about his last relationships. They talk about their fears... his is not being enough for someone. He gets the date rose. 

All the men sit around being filmed at cabin on the morning before the rose ceremony. Chris Harrison comes in and tells them Becca knows what she wants to do, so there won't be a cocktail party before the rose ceremony. 

Garrett and Wills have their roses...
  1. Leo (Still surprised he's there.)
  2. Colton
  3. Blake
  4. Jason
  5. Connor
  6. Lincoln
  7. John 
  8. Chris
  9. David
  10. Jordan (UGH!)
That means the men headed back to where they came from are Nick and Christon. 

Next stop... Vegas. I think David and Jordan go on the two-on-one!
