Y'all. These two. They could not be cuter. The wedding was gorgeous, Jade was beyond stunning, and they really do seem to be in love. Now give me back my cynicism...The Bachelor is on in ten hours.
But seriously. Last night's special was excellent. I honestly expected it to be a rehash of the 20 moments they've been counting down on Yahoo! TV. I was pleasantly surprised to be dead wrong. It was a great retrospective on the series, and I truly enjoyed it. What did you think?
Also, this happened:
Here's the deal. I set up this week's bonus last Thursday and sent out an email about it on Friday. The deadline was last night (Sunday) at 8:00 PM ET. HOWEVER, I've heard from several people that didn't realize that the bonus had closed. So here's what I'm going to do. I'll reopen bonus - just for tonight's episode. Bonus for the Bachelor at 20 special is closed.
I hope everyone picked Paradise as their bonus word for last night's special, because it's the only word/phrase that got any play. I counted NINE instances of the word paradise, so 90 points to each player who selected it. All standings will be updated Tuesday afternoon.
Edited to add: Y'all. Mondays. I just deleted all of last night's bonus submissions from my database before tallying them. So that means everyone gets 90 bonus points. Ugh, Mondays.
The agenda for tonight's episode includes: A trip to Warsaw, IN and Chicago. More professional athletes. ANOTHER promise to not blindside someone. THREE one-on-one dates. A group date. Two ladies sent home, and lots and lots of talk about hometown dates.
Becca puts Ben on the spot.
