Earlier in the day, I was convinced I would fall asleep in middle of blogging. Now I am not so sure because I tried to sleep this afternoon. I laid on the couch with my eyes shut for an hour, but nothing.
So, anyway, The Bachelor.
Instead of starting with Colton in the shower, we start with a really awkward conversation between Colton and Chris Harrison about the fantasy suites coming up in the next week. Colton goes back in to tell the three remaining women who just got roses that they will be headed to Portugal. Colton has never been to Europe, so he's excited.
Once they arrive, we see each of the women walking around being reflective talking about their connections over the season.
I'm 8 minutes (or less) in and am so over fantasy suite and such references. As over as over it as I am blowing my nose, and I have done a lot of nose blowing.
First date is Tayshia.
Tayshia and Colton go off on helicopter ride. As they sit around having their windy picnic on a cliff he talks about wanting to use the time this week to talk and learn more about each other. There's some other references that I'm just over and don't care about. They climb to the top of the lighthouse and make out.
All I really care about at this point is watching Colton jump the wall and being able to breathe through my nose.
Over dinner Tayshia's wardrobe tape isn't working which leads to another awkward moment. Or two. Or more. It's rather ridiculous. Colton is getting a show.
They talk about her past experience with her ex-husband, how he cheated and how if they were to get together, Colton would promise not to do that. He hands her the fantasy suite card supposedly written by Chris Harrison that looks more like his teenage daughter with very good penmanship wrote.
They feed each other dessert, make a mess of the champagne, stroll past the bubble bath and into the bedroom.
The next morning, Tayshia described their night as interesting. She goes on to say it didn't get physical, but they did get to know each other more. She did tell Colton that she loves him.
Colton says he's not in love yet. He's still falling in love.
Second date is Cassie.
