Maybe Becca can replace Lincoln's framed picture with this one.

After the issues from the night before, I was really looking forward to a one-on-one date with a guy who I knew wouldn’t be any drama. Blake was just that guy. Something you guys didn’t see was our limo ride over to the warehouse. We must have laughed the entire way and bonded over our love of peanut butter and the show Friends. Our connection, while so far over 90s TV shows and snack foods, felt like it was natural and easy — I loved it.

I find it very suspect that Colton just so happened to date Tia before coming on Becca’s season, and I for one really would have liked to hear how and when he met Tia and whether or not he was already in talks to come on this Bachelorette season at that time. Did they date right after Tia finished filming Arie’s season, or during the airing of Arie’s season? This information is pretty important information considering there’s no question Tia was a candidate for Bachelorette herself. It’s hard to imagine that Colton wasn’t at least considering auditioning for the show, if not already partway through the casting process for this season when he and Tia were chatting each other up. If he was indeed already in talks to be on the season (which is likely), and Tia was indeed in talks for Bachelorette (which is also likely), it goes to show that pre-season couple strategizing may not only be limited to Bachelor In Paradise.

There's much less drama on the second group date, even considering that it's dodgeball. Honestly, I found myself scrolling through my phone instead of watching; if you're going to show me dodgeball there'd better be tear-inducing shots to the crotch! So blah blah blah Wills gets the group date rose after proving to be a hopeless romantic — and sure, I like this dude. He seems so genuine.

Apparently, this is the male model’s way of assuring Becca that he’s more than just a “007” type… though I’m pretty sure he’s the only one who sees himself that way. “My hair’s always going to be pretty well kept,” he explains. “But I like to have fun.”
Guys, it gets worse.
Rather than talking about how he hopes to get married and start a family with someone special, he instead frames the procreation issue as “having a mini-me or something, you know? That’s also a big passion for me – having a little Jordan. Like, I could call him, possibly, Jordy.”

It’s painfully obvious this episode that Becca has two types: Square-headed Football Lug and Joey Donner from 10 Things I Hate About You. Everyone is either made of shoulders or has slicked-back hair.
Rachel is back! And she brought her
human consolation prizefiancé with her. How sweet. All I know is she better rein in some of that personality of hers because these guys might get confused and start imprinting on the first woman to stop speaking in catchphrases.
