2 Cents Tuesday – The Bachelor recap

I just made up the two cents Tuesday part, but I’d like to make this a weekly installment where I give my opinion on current events, shows, pop culture, etc. If the antics on The Bachelor keep up – that may be what I give my two cents about for the next few weeks.

I wasn’t even going to watch this season and thought that I was over The Bachelor, until they started running the previews and got me completely sucked in just like the marketing geniuses at ABC wanted, although I could have done without the cheesy “On the Wings of Love” part. Jake has definitely grown on me and I can honestly say that I hope he finds happiness in the end of all this. It is a reality dating show after all, but my hopes are still high.


Bye ladies

On last night’s episode, Jake pulled a shocker and sent 4 ladies packing, when really only 2 needed to go. He felt in his heart that he couldn’t see any of these ladies ending up as his future wife and thought it best to cut his ties with them now, rather than dragging it out. I give him respect for that, but I do feel bad for Kathryn because I don’t think they got to spend enough time getting to know each other (at least not on camera). I was sad to see Ella go and not really shocked or surprised to see Ashleigh and Jessie go.


What are we going to do with you, Vienna?

I don’t think that Vienna is a good fit for Jake, but also think the other ladies are focusing entirely too much on the fact that they don’t like her and the drama surrounding it all. She brought a lot of it on herself, but they’ve become like vultures. It is essentially a game and every woman for herself. I’m just hoping they get back to worrying more about Jake. Right now, Tenley is my favorite and I think she could be the one.


I can see Tenley and Jake together at the end of this

I did a recap too!

Ugh, this show pisses me off but I can't tear myself away!

I really need to know what Vienna did to make these girls hate her SO much! I love love love Tenley.

Melissa said...

Tenley is one of my favs!

I read a spoiler on who wins. I kind of wish I didn't because the show isn't as exciting for me now, but I keep hoping the spoiler is wrong so I can be surprised!

MCW said...

Yeah, Jake isn't as annoying as I thought he would be at first. I think all the girls he has left have issues. They need to stop putting models and girls who are 22 on the show. I am pretty sure that is not what he was looking for...

Sonja said...

I love Tenley too! I've read who wins and I wish I didn't either because it's ruined it for me. but I'm hoping its fake and I'll be surprised! lol

Gwen said...

I can't get into the Bachelor for some reason but I love reading all the recaps. LOL!!! XOXO

Mrs. McB said...

I completely agree. I really liked Ella-a lot. My husband even liked her. As for Vienna, boo. I think I like Tenley the best at this point as well.

from the one show i've watched i like tenley ... is it bad that it has not kept my attention? i still don't get how they fall in love?!

Tasha said...

I was drooling (as much as a married gal can) over Jake on the last bachelorette so I was happy they picked him as the bachelor. I really like Tenley too. She seems like such a sweetheart. The drama between Ali and Vienna is super annoying. I liked Ali until she brought out the claws toward Vienna. I think Vienna took the high road by trying to apologize but I don't think she's a good fit for Jake. Go team Tenley! :-)

Dana said...

I was surprised that he kicked 4 ladies to the curb. I am like you. I was not going to watch this season, but I thought Jake was cute so I turned in. Can we get at least 1 bachelor to get married? Maybe this season.

Kate said...

I have disliked Vienna from the very beginning. BUT I think the other girls need to shut their mouths and stop talking about her. Jessie (is that her name?) told Jake how she felt about Vienna and then got kicked off. I honestly think guys hate that kind of drama. I really like Corrie. I was surprise he sent Ella home after their seaworld date!

Kate said...

Oh I also read somewhere he will be bringing someone back!

Beth Dunn said...

Love it! xoxo

All you girls and your "Bachelor" recaps...I feel so left out! I did not let myself get sucked into it this year b/c I always get let down.

I hope you are having a great week!

I'm so bummed. I only saw the end of The Bachelor. I was at dinner with my boss. I did record it so I'll get to see the beginning when I get home. I don't know much about Tenley yet. I also don't know why everyone dislikes Vienna. I guess after I watch the full episode I'll understand. ;)

Lis said...

Hi friend! How is your week going? Any snow up there?

I agree 110% with you - Tenley is awesome and ugh Vienna... WHY is she still there??

Whitney said...

I jus think Vienna needs a bottle of hair color....her new growth is KILLING ME!
I absolutely LOVE Tenley. I think she is precious!

Kristin said...

Tenley seems like the sweetest to me!

avuee said...

I'm probably the only one who isn't watching this season's "The Bachelor". Sure, I've heard about the crazy ladies, but maybe I'll tune in on Monday.
