Good morning! I will try not to focus on Krystal this week, which may be hard to do since the episode certainly did. I’ll be completely honest, I didn’t pay as much attention as I normally do, because the episode was so Krystal-heavy. Chelsea’s date was pretty sweet, and I definitely like her more than I did at the beginning of the season. I can’t remember if it was her first husband, or if they weren’t married, but I appreciate that she was pretty open about all that. She didn’t try to hide it. I felt really bad for her. It takes guts to explain that you were left for another woman on national television. I hope she and her son find someone that fits into their lives and will support them the way they deserve.
The group date started with Arie licking a bowling ball, so that was gross. Jenna is pretty extra, and I’m kind of tired of her, but I’ll take her over Krystal any day. Also, I think Arie made the right decision to open the “after party” to everyone. These girls are here to get to know him, and how can they do that if they don’t get any time. Throwing a tantrum about a choice he makes is certainly not the way to win his heart, and I have never liked Arie more than when he called Krystal out for it. At the cocktail party, when he said, “This could be our last fight,” I was on board in that moment. Plus he seemed miserable having to give her the last rose, and I felt for him.
I’ll be honest, I didn’t pay that much attention to Tia’s date. I really like her, but I was so annoyed with Krystal already, and the fact that the producers showed spoilers for next week showing her there, that I had kind of zoned out. Plus, I was watching with some friends, and we were talking about other things. I think it’s funny that she was first to say love, because Raven was, too. Great minds? I don’t know, but I really like them both.
At least if we had to keep Krystal one more week, we’ll almost certainly get a 2-on-1. I hope they leave her somewhere remote. Is that awful? Maybe. As of now, my favorites are still safe, although I’m still salty Caroline went home. My top three are Sienne, Becca K, and Tia. I like some of the other girls, but those are just my favorites. What are your thoughts on the season so far?
