The Bachelor Recap: Dream Date & Derby

I was super impressed with the second episode, so here are my thoughts on my top 5 front runners, along with some other thoughts on the episode.

Becca: Becca seems like a great fit for Arie. Her date was a dream date for a girl. I mean she got all those dresses plus that fabulous looking spread of food. It was lighthearted until we finally got to the night portion, and they seem like a nice match. She had a solid one on one and she seems relatively normal and not about the drama, which is a another good sign for her.

Chelsea: Chelsea actually didn’t bother me that much. I think Arie is still very much invested in Chelsea especially when she revealed she had a son. I like that she didn’t really play games and acted coy this episode.

Bekah: Bekah and Arie had a steamy moment, and you can tell he’s really into her. They have a cute little moment when he says he wasn’t sure if she’d be into him, and it’s a funny exchange between the two. I just wonder if it’s just lust right now, but I mean Bekah has been very magnetic personality, so it has potential to turn into something more serious.

Seinne: I really love Seinne. She played her cards just right during the group date. She won the competition overall, and then she really impressed me when she was talking to Arie. She’s well-traveled, went to Yale and is really stunning. I mean if she doesn’t win, I think she’d be an awesome Bachelorette just based off this second episode.

Krystal: Krsytal annoyed me to no end in this episode, but Arie liked her a lot so I kept her in the top 5. She just doesn’t come off as genuine. I’m sure she’s sweet in real life, but on TV, she came off really condescending toward the other women. Thankfully, Queen Bibiana came through.

Other Thoughts:

  • Bibiana was a little crazy during the group date, but she totally redeemed herself when she called Krystal out for stealing everyone’s time. It was composed and fabulous, and I love her already.
  • Annaliese is hilarious. I find her super endearing, and I cannot believe how silly that sequence with the bumper cars was. It reminded me so much of the episode of Friends where Rachel is afraid to go on the swings. XD
  • Jenny was devastated to leave, but not because of Arie, no, no, she was leaving all the friends she made. That was so cringe worthy.
  • This episode was my favorite in a while! I loved the drama, and it definitely changed my attitude toward the season. I think the girls are going to be crazy, and I think Arie won’t know how to handle all these personalities, so it should be an interesting season for sure.
