I literally don’t have the drawers to unpack all this baggage, y’all.
The dates begin, and drama ensues.
Surprisingly, DJ Agro Catherine was not the impetus for the drama (and where was her dog, btw?). Rather, Demi takes the crown on the first group date, ramps it up during the cocktail party, and totally alienates the “older ladies,” particularly Terrible Tracy, in the process.
Hannah B. goes on the first 1-on-1 date of the season on her “golden birthday,” (which….why is this a thing?) and she implodes. As a pageant queen, she clearly can’t improvise. If she doesn’t have a rehearsed answer to anything Colton asks her, she basically melts into a puddle of awkward. It’s not good television.
Blah blah blah camp date with Billy Eichner. Heather’s never been kissed. Gotcha.
Finally, Alex B, Angelique, Annie, and Erika were eliminated. So, usually two ladies who the Bachelor is actually interested in don’t get dates during Episode 2 - they’re definitely going to be kept around. This time around, Angelique and Annie didn’t go on dates AND didn’t get roses. My theory? Colton wanted to send them home Night One, but the producers made him give out 23 roses.
So how did our Bachelorettes do last night?
And what about the bonus games?
