Becca, for her part, continues to prove as sharp as a tack. NOTHING is lost on this woman. I loved how, instead of getting distracted by the accusations Chris made during his “debate,” she focused on the fact that he was making those accusations at all, with a mic and in front of an audience. It would have been dangerously easy to put stock in Chris’s claims and take the bait, questioning the guys’ “genuininity” (sorry, can’t help myself!). But she got to the heart of the problem instantly, rightfully calling what Chris did “embarrassing,” “stupid drama” and “airing dirty laundry out for everyone to see.” I imagine you guys got the same thrill I did when she finally sent him home! He came over to her place so smug, thinking he would emerge “victorious” (again, whatever that means), and for every half-baked argument he had, she had a mic-drop response.

Becca’s face while Lincoln was talking during the group date was as stoic as those creepy paintings in that house. Chris was even worse, but you know the rest. Shout out to Garrett for stepping it up and calling Chris out! I like that Garrett. He was saying what we all have been screaming through the TV for weeks. I was honestly waiting for Becca to do this. She is V classy and graceful in how she is handling this whole process, but I just want her to pop off one time … just one time, Becca.

While everyone else is parroting lines about how their perfect date would be going to the dog park with Becca, Chris decides to butt in with a wildly inappropriate tangent about how Lincoln called him a “fat f—” because he used to weight 300 lbs. The fact that this all unfolds in front of THE GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA makes the whole thing even more absurd.

Leo wears his hair in a cute li’l bun that shows off his jawline. He harvests an oyster right out of the bay. He says the phrase “she should have the freedom to choose and do what she wants and make the best decision for her future.” That’s how low the bar is: a man endorsing female autonomy. He gets the one-on-one rose.
Is Chris really hashing out his fat kid probs in front of His Majesty, The Governor? How dare he! The governor looks v upset and his whole day is prob ruined. I’ve gotta say, though, that the weirdest part about this entire group date is how Becca is asking NONE of the questions in this panel that is literally ABOUT HER. Actually, kind of a metaphor for the current American political system. Carry on.
At midnight-thirty, Becca climbs up a ladder to the clock tower in her skin-tight skirt. We have no idea if Jason took a peek at the goods, but I’m guessing that since he has one of the best characters Becca has ever seen, he probably kept his gaze at eye level. They make out by the little hand of a very large clock and toast to a perfect night.

A quick heads up about Paradise:
I’m not planning to do Bachelor League for BIP this year. I’ll be back in action for The Bachelor, but the twice/week slog through Paradise is too much for me this time around.
