Let’s talk about this season. There was a new episode of The Bachelorette, but aside from the Jean incident, there wasn’t that much to talk about other than I think Becca was sooo into Garrett, and he’s definitely a front runner. She could not stop gushing over him. I’ll get more into why I’m not totally loving this season in a bit.
Today, I’m gonna talk more about what’s happening in Bachelor Nation because there’s way more tea to spill in that department.
- Let’s start with something wonderful. Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon are engaged! I am so happy for Ashley. I listen to both her podcasts, and she’s just so relatable when it came to her dating life, so I’m so happy she got her happy ending. I’m also glad that Jared admitted he had harbored feelings because I was tired of the whole Ashley is obsessed with Jared gimmick when I knew they were close friends and it was way more than that. Congrats to the couple! I guess we’ll see it all go down in paradise.
- Speaking of paradise, filming might be wrapped up because there was some Twitter drama between Bekah M. from last season and Raven. Basically, Bekah posted a photo of Colton and Tia, kind of accusing them of planning to be together despite Becca being the Bachelorette. Then, because Tia couldn’t defend herself, her friend Raven, chimed in and told Bekah she wasn’t being a good friend to Tia. The whole thing was a mess, and you can check out the thread by simply Googling it. Bekah recently apologized saying she didn’t have to go about everything is such a petty way. Honestly, I love that Bekah is so forthcoming, but I do think it was unnecessary for her to go into Tia when she knew she couldn’t defend herself at all. Also, isn’t this a spoiler? Like is she even allowed to do that? I like my paradise seasons unspoiled, but it’s so hard to stay spoiler free these days. With Raven, I get her defending her friend, but I kind of feel like both girls just didn’t have to contribute anything because it all escalated into Raven blocking her. It could’ve all been avoided. Nothing gets accomplished on social media. We rarely see Twitter feuds ending well.
- In other news, Lincoln should have never been on the show. Last week, Lincoln pleaded guilty of indescent assault and battery on May 21. Charges were filed back in 2016. I’m so shocked that someone is actually in some legal trouble, but even more shocked that this is something that wasn’t brought up in casting. That’s truly terrible, especially for Becca’s sake.
I’m not gonna go into the episode because I was a little bored in all honesty! I loved the second and third episodes, but the Jordan drama just isn’t cutting it, especially because I would find a lot of his antics funny more so than disrespectful like Colton and Chris.
Yeah, next week looks a little more promising, so I’ll delve into the season more next week. To me, everything is about social media this season. From Garrett to Twitter feuds to this stuff about Lincoln, hopefully, the season gets a little more focused.
