Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. The kids I teach in Bible class tend to think so. I also blog about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. I don't know why, I just do.
Even more odd things going down on #thebachelorette
Urg. I had watch the last ten minutes online.
Here I go
back posting this week’s episode of The
Bachelorette again. I was going to work on it after getting back from
Peyton’s softball game, but my parents’ air conditioner went out and they needed
to come over here to sleep, so it wasn’t a good time to start work on it.
here I actually am on Tuesday after long day. Terrific in that there’s a good
job announcement to make (more on that tomorrow’s post), but also maddening in how
I ended up on the phone with tech support for two hours. (This time not with
AT&T, but had to be on chat with them yesterday, and I’m waiting for
another new router. Because my internet keeps spacing in and out, I am having
to type this as a word doc to paste into the blog.)
PM Tuesday hoping to get this in before I fall asleep typing from the chair in
my living room.
episode starts on a rainy day where David is complaining about Jordan,
especially his roaming unclothed. Jordan talks about David being a dry chicken
with no sense of humor who is always cooking scrambled eggs.
still wondering where things stand with Becca. I finally understand what her
issue was with him dating Tia. She thinks he’s only there because he was hoping
Tia would have been The Bachelorette.
I didn’t put that together until she talked about it in the previews. I don’t
know why I didn’t get that before. I just didn’t.
Harrison arrives with the date card happy that Jordan has on some clothes
instead of just his swimsuit. He asks what else is going on. He tells them that
Becca has gotten really serious. There will be two group dates and a
one-on-one. No two-on-one to get rid of David and Jordan at the same time or
Lincoln and Connor.
After leaving the card, Blake reads it. “Wills,
Jason, Jordan, David, Jean Blanc and Colton. It’s time to relax.”
annoyed about going with David. Colton is ready to make a move and get past the
men arrive, a bunch of the women from last season join Becca for mimosas. They
are going to the spa and will be the extra eyes and ears. Becca brings up
Colton to Tia. Bekah (the weed farmer too young for Arie) asks questions and
puts together the Colton hoping Tia was the bachelorette part. I’m not sure if
that sentence made sense.
informs the men that they are the ones doing the pampering instead of being pampered
themselves. The men go in and meet the women. Colton thinks it’s one of his
worst nightmares to be there with Tia given he was on thin ice.
introduces the men, she stumbles over remember Jason’s name. He didn’t go on a
date last week, so out of sight, out of mind.
Colton talk about the awkwardness of Tia being there. He’s the only one that
knew about the Colton situation from Colton himself.
I’m never going to get the episode finished.
I already had to pose to rest my eyes.
One of the
things the women are watching is to make sure the men are actually paying
attention and spending extra time with Becca.
Tia off to talk. Tia says Colton told her about getting picked on the show soon
after when they met. She still doesn’t know if he has the right intentions, so
will have to talk to him later. I’m tired of hearing about it already.
arrives for the evening part of the date, Wills pulls Becca off first. Snooze.
Jason she really did remember his name and that he makes her a little nervous
(in a good way). They start a make-out session.
in front of the other men about getting an email congratulating him on 4000 matches
on Tinder. They ask him how much swiping he had to do and how much time he had to
spend each day.
talks to Becca, he’s obnoxious. I hate the sound of his voice right now. He
tells her he gets along with everyone except Jordan who walks around undressed.
(Jordan wasn’t completely naked even though everyone else was in suits. Yes, he
was being a turd and should have gotten dressed instead of wearing a blanket to
the rose ceremony, but why bring it up.) Becca interrupts him to remind him of
the chicken suit. He also tattles on the Tinder thing.
back around later congratulating Jordan on his matches. David and Jordan have
some battle of the words. Jordan goes to talk to Becca next. She says he has a
sense of humor. He says he has a hard time finding a hard time finding 100%
match on intensity. He defends his masculinity while being in his element of
pampering. His ego is HUGE.
joins the group again, it’s David vs. Jordan. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I
think some of the guys are creating a drinking game with all this. David accuses
Jordan of being there to build his modeling career. Jordan starts bragging on
himself and his image and his professionalty. Jordan and his made-up words may
be the most annoying thing about him when there are so many annoying things.
Back at the house, the next date card
arrives. “Chris - Let’s make your heart sing.” That’s all there is to that.
Group date… Colton
and his blahblahblahblah to Jason. Becca still yadayadayada… here for me… She
sits Colton down to talk about it. He wants her to know he’s being serious. For
all the muttering and nothing particularly convincing in the conversation that
I heard, I’m surprised that Becca gives Colton the rose.
Next day… next date… Becca and Chris head
off in a limo. They arrive at Capitol Records. When they go in, Richard Marx is
playing the piano. I don’t know how Chris recognizes him. Lines had to be fed
to him. Yes, I know who he is, but after 20 something years since his last hit,
I wouldn’t recognize him.
to sing, “Right Here Waiting for You” with him, and it is painful. Richard says
for the date they will be writing a song. Chris has a mini meltdown because he’s
afraid of being vulnerable this early on. There’s some sappy sharing of bad
lyrics/poetry. Awkward. Richard plays the guitar some. Becca and Chris dance
around the floor.
Then there is a 10-15 minute interruption with
live news break of President Trump and Kim Jong-Un -shaking hands. The show
then resumes in its entirety, but my DVR is going to cut off before the end. I’m
going to have to pull that up online which annoys me.
final date card of the night arrives, “Clay, Leo, Christon, Ryan, John, Garrett,
Mike, Lincoln, Connor, Blake - we can tackle anything together.”
Nick is the odd man out without a date. Both
football players should have been on the same date to side into teams. In middle
of all the men, Jordan tells Colton he has a question for him that he can ask
there or pull him aside to ask. Jordan asks him about the Tia thing. David
starts in on Jordan again.
Chris… rehash what had made him nervous - writing things down and expressing
himself. He didn’t want to build up feelings to be brought down. He starts
talking about his father leaving his family on New Years Even when he was 7 years
old. It’s an odd transition/time to reveal this. Evidently, he wrote a letter
to his dad after many years, and his dad didn’t write back. This was why he got
emotional. He gets the date rose.
concert with Richard Marx. I can’t name one song he sang other than “Right Here
Waiting for You.”
At the house, David is carried out of the
house on a stretcher. Basher from Oceans
11, I mean Lincoln talks about how there is blood everywhere and how they
hope David lives. A dramatically edited moment that concludes with Jordan
sitting by himself in the living room before cutting to commercial.
A shot of a
little bit of blood on the floor opens the next segment of the show. Some of
the men talk about the bloody scene. Chris Harrison shows up at Becca’s hotel
to tell her that there was an incident and one of the guys was rushed to the
hospital and is in intensive care. Busted nose. Busted face. Becca asks who did
it. All this is told very dramatically. Then, Chris Harrison reveals this happened
after David fell out of bed. Becca and Chris call him. David laughs it off
saying he’s used to sleeping in a king-sized bed.
a rail on the bed to keep it from happening again.
Moving along to the group date. A couple of
female football players come out to show them how it’s done. They go through
drills and try to show off.
his aggressive side - we’ve only seen nice Clay so far, and Becca likes seeing
him in his element.
They suit up
in full gear to really get into the game. They are all playing to win. Clay
does not want to lose (he ties the game in the last play) and hurts his wrist.
They have to call in the medic.
portion of the date takes place in an antique shop. That’s bizarre and random.
already talking about how weird it is being on a group date after being on the
one-on-one. He calls her his girlfriend and this makes her giddy.
back to the date with a sling. An ortho has to check it out tomorrow. She tells
him about how it was fun to see him in his element, but he didn’t rub it in to
all come back together, she wants to give the rose to someone who makes her
feel like a princess. She gives it to Clay.
Here is where I have to try to get the online
video to work for me. My internet connection may give me fits!
Cocktail party time!
Nick is plotting
his move. Without a date, he has to make up for lost time. When Becca arrives and
makes her toast, you can really hear her ice rattling in her glass.
Connor has to take her out to the driveway for some t-ball because he
acknowledges he’s not much of a football player.
point, Clay has seen the ortho who told him he needed to have surgery to fix
his wrist. She doesn’t want to lose the chance of having something with Becca, but
needs surgery so he can play football and earn his pay for the next few years.
He has to sit down and talk to her about it. He claims it’s the hardest decision
he’s ever had to make. He knows it’s the choice he has to make… to leave. Now,
he was sitting on a bench in front of the fireplace, and when he gets up, he
puts weight on his splinted wrist as he uses that hand to push himself up. If
it was hurting that bad, he wouldn’t have been doing that. He tells Becca he
has to leave to provide for his family. She was starting to have feelings for
upsets Becca, and that’s where we have to leave it for the week. I hate it when
we don’t get the rose ceremony at the end of every episode. Urg.
