The Bros. Who mostly suck, by the way.

Speaking of unscathed, it’s a miracle that both Matt and Christen have somehow escaped the inevitability of being given the “chokey” by Jasmine. Once again, as we saw in Paradise and again on our stage, the communication gap between Matt and Jasmine was enormous. They were so clearly not on the same page it’s hard to imagine they were even speaking the same language.
I’ve had the same discussion with my few remaining friends who’ve managed to stick with this show and not quit out of sheer boredom: Why do the guys have all the power this season? Even when the guys don’t technically have the “power,” a.k.a. roses to hand out, they still seem in power. The women are enabling this and it is SUPER frustrating to watch. These are intelligent, beautiful, discerning women. None of them have a hard time getting a date in the real world; why are they allowing themselves to turn on each other over men, being made to feel confused, undesired, not good enough? I have to wonder if the show’s format incites some competitive edge in them, making them tolerate more than they would in real life, in hopes of “winning,” Or is it only obvious to an outsider that a lot of these guys just don’t respect or want to commit to them?

It doesn’t feel like anyone is putting their best foot forward. I don’t know who I’m supposed to be rooting for. So far, the dead crab Alexis tried to shove into JACK STONE’s mouth is a more sympathetic character than any of these other bozos.
Daniel? Really? He was the best we could do for a surprise entrance during the rose ceremony? Between all the interesting eligible men on Rachel’s season, we’re trotting out Daniel? He seems like the kind of guy who goes around and tells everyone his role model is Jason Bateman but he really means Patrick Bateman. You know this guy looked at the eclipse. Straight on. No glasses.
We’ve got Sarah who is trying desperately to prove that she is cooler than Raven’s boob job. We also have Kristina, a survivor of Soviet Russia, getting fucked over by someone who goes by the name “Deanie Babies” on social media. Tbh, I’ve never felt more betrayed by a totally imagined and not at all real boyfriend.
