The Bachelor: Week 6: Matt: Another One Bites the Dust
Let's just right in, shall we?
All of the women are waiting for what they call the two-on-one between MJ and Jessinia. MJ is the last member of the Mean Girl Tribe as one of the women puts it, and it's time to go. The rest of the women want their time at the cocktail party and hope this whatever it is ends quickly.
Matt arrives and tells them this is not the way he planned this evening. They need to get to the bottom of what is going on. He asks to talk to Jessenia first. She doesn't THINK she has anything to worry about. She tells Matt that MJ lied to his face the other night. She was in cahoots (my word) with Victoria. MJ says she loves to preach by example, but she's the one that started the division.
I'm not sure if this is the route she should have gone. It usually backfires on both sides.
Meanwhile, MJ is in the other room having an emotional breakdown.I'm going to say it's fake though.
Also, MJ's dress looks like a 90 year old man's suit coat that's really short. Maybe she just looks like she came in from the 90s. Big hair, fashion, earrings...
She switches on her "poor me voice" for Matt. She goes on about how her biggest fear is missing Matt.
I can't tell if he fell for it. She tells the cameras she was vulnerable and spoke the truth. She also says she will continue to be a bad *itch.
She goes back to pick a fight with Jessenia again.
I hope Matt could hear this.
Matt is conflicted. Both had valid points. He THINKS MJ is a good woman, but Jessenia has never given him reason not to trust her. He doesn't think he can go forward with both of them.
When he comes back in the room, he picked up the rose. He tells MJ he has enjoyed their moments together and their connection is undeniable. He acknowledges that Jessenia is looking for someone to be her rock.
He tells MJ that he cannot give her the rose and asks to walk her out. I don't know that Jessenia needs to celebrate quite yet though.
As she rides away, MJ goes on about how Jessenia sabotaged her and was petty. She thinks the rest of the women will be shocked.
Then women come in expecting to see one or the other, but see neither. Finally, Jessenia arrives with a rose.They all ask what happened.
The women are ready for Matt, but Chris Harrison walks in instead. Of course, that means Matt wants to know what he wants to do, and they will go right to the rose ceremony.
Serena C. gets mad and blames Katie for bringing up the drama. She thinks it's her fault for bringing up the drama.
Time for roses!
Rachael, Kit, Abigail, and Jessenia are safe.
Matt comes in and apologizes for cancelling the cocktail party, but the night has been emotionally draining. If they don't get a rose tonight, just know that he is following his heart.
- Serena P.
- Serena C. (Snap! I was ready for her to go next.)
Katie doesn't understand why Serena is hung up on her. Serena goes back in the room with most of the other women. She says she just had a conversation with Katie. Everyone said they heard. Katie comes in the room and says there doesn't have to be whispering. After they get into it again, Katie says, "If you don't like what went down last night, tell Matt about it."
Now, c'mon! He had to have known that was coming.
Chris Harrison drops in. He breaks them up into two teams. The winners get more time tonight. The losers get a long walk home in the rain. There are nine people on this date, so there are five on the blue team (Serena C., Abigail, Kit, Bri, and Rachael) and four on the pink (Serena P, Michelle, Jessenia, and Chelsea). The pink team wins.
Matt tells Tyler about Katie. Matt has always liked her confidence and being who she is. Tyler sometimes it's the relationships that don't come on strong until later that work out. Matt says he wishes he could talk to Tyler before every date as it put him in the right head space.
Matt recognizes Heather. He apologizes to Pieper and says he needs a couple of minutes.
