5 Things to Know About This Season of The Bachelorette

Hannah B is a feminist icon: We all had our doubts about Hannah Beast becoming the bachelorette when she flubbed on the After the Final Rose special, but Hannah has more than made up for it with her candidness and zero tolerance for bullsh*t with her suitors. In fact, I can’t remember a time when someone has called out the contestants for acting like first graders more than Hannah has. But it’s more than being a badass alpha.

She has no problem expressing her attraction for the men this season. It’s almost like when you sit down with your friends over drinks to dish about your love lives. That’s why I adore this woman. I knew it the moment Colton sent her home and she was like nah, this is crap! The previews reveal that it’s only going to escalate as it appears Luke will be slut shaming her and she WILL NOT be having it. I love how open Hannah is, and I can’t wait for her to put Luke in his place.

No one seems to be there for the “right reasons”: So Scott turned out to be a clown on night one when it was revealed he had a girl back home waiting for him. And then Tyler G. went home for unknown reasons. And then there was Cam, who I truly felt was simply misunderstood but was ultimately sent home packing when Hannah found his stories to be manipulative.

But then, we have Jed. He’s clearly a frontrunner, but it turns out that he had a girlfriend the entire time! A girlfriend who was waiting for his return. A girlfriend who he ended up ghosting. And a girlfriend who he had promised that the show was all a publicity stunt. Jed has a really good chance of actually being engaged to Hannah, and if he is, I don’t see how someone as strong-willed as Hannah is going to let that slide. Either way, it’s hard to watch the show now knowing his intentions.

But Tyler C and Peter are perfect: There are two guys who have stolen my heart this season (besides the obvious John Paul Jones.) Tyler C and Peter are so unproblematic, and it’s actually concerning that they’re two of the only descent guys left. Tyler is not only gorgeous, but he was super caring and sweet to Hannah on their one on one date. He’s super cheesy in a lot of his interactions but darn it, it’s hard not to swoon. He’s kind of like the sweet jock who writes poetry and volunteers in his free time. Also, follow him on Instagram for inspiration as he runs charity events on the regular!

Then there’s Peter the pilot, who is Ben Higgins 2.0. He’s endearing in his little awkward make outs with Hannah, but’s it’s so charming to watch on screen as he tries hoisting her up on a pool table only to hit his head on a lamp. Oh Pete. But besides that, he doesn’t cause any drama and seems to be friends with everyone in the house. If Hannah is not engaged to Peter, he’d be a great bachelor.

Luke is that toxic guy we can’t get rid of: Luke is the most polarizing person this season hands down. He’s clearly got some more close-minded views on what he expects in his wife, using words like “pure” and referring to Hannah’s body as a temple. That’s an issue just waiting to unfold. However, it’s more just him bringing up other people’s names that has him in hot water. He’s clearly lacking the emotional maturity, and that’s been clear from episode 3. What’s more interesting is that Luke represents every guy a girl has trouble letting go of because she feels an undeniable connection. We’ve all been there. Putting up with absolute nonsense for no reason other than the fact that you can’t let go of the hope or idea of someone. We see Hannah struggle with this all season, and she’s very self-aware that Luke has special treatment.

Who will likely be on paradise? There’s so many potential guys coming down to paradise. I’m actually thinking Mike and Connor, who both got sent packing last episode, will probably be contenders, along with John Paul Jones, Dylan and maybe even Garrett as well. I’m sure tons of Colton’s girls will also be featured like Hannah G, Tayhsia, Heather and Caelynn as well. I’m excited to see all the pairings unfold.

This season certainly has been original with lots of interesting personalities. I cannot wait to see how this wild ride ends. Part of me is scared that she ends up with Jed, but then part of me is hopeful that she chooses Tyler or Peter. Stay tuned! I’ll definitely share my thoughts once this season wraps for good!
