Bachelor Recap: Episode 8

Well … of ALL Bachelor episodes this season, I had a hard time staying awake for this one … in the beginning. It was a good episode for sure but I have to admit I miss some of the drama between the girls. But I guess it’s not about me, it’s about Chris!!!!

The Bachelor contestants

I don’t have TONS to say about this episode … I think Becca is beautiful and has great teeth. I think Whitney is tremedoulsly in love with Chris. I think ALL girls would majorly struggle with living in Arlington. Like MAJORLY… but my senses say that everyone would be moving closer to Chicago or Des Moines…

the-bachelor-recapThe Bachelor Recap - Kaitlyn Date

What I do want to talk about is sweet Kaitlin! Oh my gosh my heart just TOTALLY broke for her last night!!! It reminded me SO much of my departure on the Bachelor and how sad that was for me. I saw her struggle the SAME way I did on the show… it is SO hard to let your guard down and so girls like Kaitlin and I play the friend card instead. I never did REALLY let my wall down on the Bachelor, but Kaitlin did, and immediately got hurt. I felt SO sorry for her last night but at the same time, I wasn’t completely shocked. Kaitlin is fun, spontaneous, goofy and in my opinion needs to be around people, culture, travel and yes, close to the city (by kouyoumjian here) … As much as I love Chris this season, I think Kaitlin needs someone to reflect that, and so I am so excited for what is to come for her!!

The Bachelor - Kaitlyn

Oh by the way – I love that she had the best outfit last night and looked STUNNINGGGGGG!!! Was a great way to exit!!!

All in favour for Kaitlin as the next BACHELORETTE …. say YEY!!!!!!!!

  1. Sam says:

    YES! I love her! She definitely needs to be the next bachelorette..and she’s CANADIAN!

  2. Sandra says:

    Yey!!! I was thinking that last night as soon as he let her go! She would make a great Bachelorette and it would be awesome to watch another Canadian girl!

  3. Ellejays11 says:

    Canadian girls make the best bachelorettes 😉

  4. Connie in AZ says:

    I love all 3 of the girls but agree she isn’t the best choice for him. She needs some excitement! I would totally watch her as the next Bachelorette! And I’m not even Canadian 🙂

  5. ramblingrenovators says:

    Agreed. I couldn’t picture her living happily in Arlington though she seemed very sincere in her feelings towards Chris. She was just so nice and fun through it all – typically Canadian!

  6. Donna says:

    Agreed! She is not the right gal for Chris.. She needs someone much more “fun” and adventurous. Arlington is not for her, at all. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her.. It’s pretty obvious where his heart is leading him.. I really don’t see her agreeing to give up her career and being barefoot and preggers (ok, my be a little stretch)…. 🙂 Best of luck to whoever he picks and her.. I am a big supprter of the couple that walks away together, I hope it works.

  7. Lorrae Brooks says:

    agreed how pretty did she look in the pink outfit with her hair swept up like that i’m like how could you say no to that, I prefer her to Becca but think he made the right choice

  8. Nancy Stockwell says:

    I will be shocked if she is not the next Bachellorette! !

  9. TMac says:

    Yey! She would be so much fun. And I totally agree with everything you said about her.

  10. Ruby says:

    I think Whitney is the only one that did not actually visit Arlington. It will be a shock for her for sure. She is a fertility specialist and moving to Arlington she may have to definitely look at expanding to livestock as patients. I have to agree with you this episode was a bit of a sleeper compared to the previous episodes but really looking forward to next week!

  11. Bethany says:

    Agree with your perspectives but I am NOT a fan of Whitney. Her catty, snarky side comes out a bit too often and makes me suspect there’s a lot more of that than she’s been letting slip. Not a nice girl. It’s Becca all the way – what a sweet, beautiful, authentic girl she seems to be. No contest! As for the next Bachelorette, I think it would be fun to see Britt in that role, and I’ll bet the ratings would shoot up with her charismatic personality and gorgeousness at the center of the show. 🙂

  12. Sara Mae says:

    YEY!!!!

  13. Alina Stewart says:

    I think it should be either Kaitlyn or Carly as bachelorette. Both seem like sweet, genuine people and both are pretty funny and would make the show entertaining. I think that Whitney has it but only because Chris is looking for a wife, right now. I think if it came down to true feelings he would pick Becca but she isn’t so inclined to move to Arlington.

  14. Annonay Barnhardt says:

    Yey!

  15. agreed!!! love her!! theres no way she could live in such a small town but she seems to be a great person and this im sure has opened some major doors for her. yey!!!

  16. Kpederson says:

    Yes!! Kaitlin for bachelorette

  17. kerkerbear says:

    I said the same thing weeks ago! So think Kaitlyn is the perfect candidate! She is funny, charming, stunningly beautiful in a way that will have hoards of guys vying for her, and she never had any bitterness toward the other girls, despite there actions . That tells me she’s very genuine! Although I adored Carly I don’t think she could hold her own as the Bachelorette. And while I am routing for Becca and have been most of the season I don’t think she has enough pizazz to carry the show either. Now that all the crazies are gone I am kinda ready for it to be over just so I don’t have to hear Whitney’s voice. … yikes.
    Also looking forward whats so wrong with someone who doesnt want a proposal and needs more time. I don’t think theres anything wrong with that and if anything I think it shows some smarts. I mean spend some time in the real world without the cameras and fancy exursions because thats what the rest of your life would be.

  18. Kaitlin Fan says:

    YES YES YES…Kaitlin for BACHELORETTEEEEEEE

  19. Renee says:

    Yey!!!!!!!

  20. maria r says:

    I agree, Kaitlin would be great. I disagree with Whitney being in love though, I think she wants to be in love more than she actually is. She isn’t the right fit.

  21. Kim House Sanders says:

    Yey!

  22. Winnie says:

    YEY!!!!! I ABSOLUTELY hope that Kaitlin will be our next Bachelorette!!! 🙂

  23. Peggy Daley says:

    NOPE WONT WATCH!Need someone new!

  24. ZShat says:

    Did anyone notice Whitney’s sub par spray tan?? Bless her

  25. B Alves says:

    Yes forsure, Kaitlyn for the Bachelorette! She had the best outfit by far. Best colour and she just wore it well. She is so cute and full of life. Wishing good luck her way.

  26. Judy says:

    Yey for sure!! Have to admit I kinda have a girl crush on Kaitlin 😉 She’s gorgeous, fun & love her laugh 🙂 I agree, better things to come for her…

  27. Michaela says:

    Yes!!!! I love her! She’s seems like the total package! She would be an amazing bachelorette!!!

  28. Karla says:

    Kaitlyn is so sweet but don’t think she’s the right one for Chris. She would make a great bachelorette. Or Carlyle. Whitney was looking a little too smug when Kaitlyn was leaving.

  29. Wendy says:

    Yey! for sure! Especially since she is a fellow Vancouverite 🙂

  30. Aly says:

    I agree!! Bachelorette Kaitlyn all the way!

  31. Dani says:

    YEY!!! Kaitlyn was my FAVE. Kaitlyn for bachelorette PLEASE! 🙂
    Thanks for the recap, Jill!

  32. eileen says:

    I didn’t know you were on the Bachelor originally? Who was the Bachelor? There was a phase where I stopped watching but came back near the end of your season of the Bachelorette. Cool that Kaitlin too is from Vancouver. I really like her but I’m not sure if she could carry a season but then again I thought Chris couldn’t but I’ve enjoyed this season a lot! It looks like Chris’s mom is going to scare the schlitz out of Becca

  33. Bunny says:

    Just read that Kaitlin is the next Bachelorette, squeal! Well, according to a certain blogger (ahem, Reality Steve;). Love her! She reminds me of you, Jill. Cute & sparkly! Can’t wait! xo
