I MUST start this off by saying I’m really impressed so far with this season. I absolutely LOVE Rachel, she’s articulate, genuine, BEAUTIFUL, quirky … (the list could go on) and I just love watching her!!! It’s so crazy though, every time I watch the Bachelorette it brings me RIGHT back to my days on the show … SO many memories … and similar feelings I can see Rachel working through. One thing I noticed last night was that Rachel is really good at focusing on the POSITIVE and on the positive people which is so crucial when there are so many other things that you can be focusing on. Anyways, lets get started on last nights episode …
I kind of crapped my pants when I saw Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis on the first date of the show … I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining in ANY WAY lol … but Martina McBride was on my season and I LOVE her … but I had MAJOR FOMO when I saw that Rachel got to hang with Ashton and Mila!! Also, don’t you think that it should be mandatory that every guy has to go through the “Husband Material” test prior to us ladies committing to them?! LOL!! Or is that taking it too far?? LOL! Either way, I freakin loved watching the guys struggle through the course and Mila giving them a hard time on the sidelines!! And the cherry on top? When Ashton shut down participating in Lucas’ WHABOOM antics. Pure freakin’ gold. WHABOOM!!!!!
Okkkkkk and can we talk about the dog party?! Dog smoothies and a photo booth?! Ummmm BarkBox … hellooooo while I was sitting here having FOMO over Ashton and Mila … Nacho was having MAJOR Barkfest FOMO … he’s convinced himself that his invitation surely got misplaced in our move but I have a feeling if it doesn’t show up, he’s gonna have a bone to pick with you!! Pun 100% intended. LOL!!!!!
NOW … I HAVE to address what happened between DeMario, his ex (?), and Rachel. Did someone say DRAMA!?!?! At first, I was like “YES GET HIM THE HELL OUTTA HERE!!!” and then the more I thought about it, the more I realized, maybe she’s the one that has the issues?? I mean, she’s not there to protect Rachel … is she??? She’s there to get on TV and cause some drama. I know that some of you will be disagreeing with me on this one. But it also made me reflect back to when I was applying for the show and when I got in … I have to HONESTLY admit that I do believe it’s a little reckless to throw everything that you have before going on the show entirely away. Yup. I said it. Lol. Hear me out …
When you try out for the show you don’t know if you’re going to make it or not, so you continue your life as it was … then, BOOM! You get the call and you’re going to be on the show! Excitement hits and your head is in the clouds. When you start filming you have to give away your phone, you can’t communicate with other people, you can’t watch TV or go on the internet … you’re basically in this new world, and it’s exciting and crazy and you have NO idea how it’s going to end up and you REALLY get into the process. It gets EVEN harder when you really fall for the person because you literally get lost in this brand new world and you kind of forget about the others before them … so when someone from your past shows up it’s a rude awakening to reality and it’s at that very moment you realize you may have hurt someone or didn’t end things properly, etc. I mean, when I applied to go on the show, I was dating someone and didn’t take the show THAT seriously. A part of me thought there could be something better but you don’t drop your entire life because there is NO guarantee of how it will all turn out!!
So, to sum this up … I CAN see why DeMario was seeing someone before, or currently, or whatever it was … but the bottom line is, he obviously wasn’t happy with her and no, it wasn’t fair for him to string her along AT ALL but I understand COMPLETELY how it could have happened …
Can we all just take a second and admire how STUNNING Rachel looked in that red top and jeans on the Bark Box date?! I’m obsessed with that shade of red lately, I think it looks AH-MAZING on almost anyone … it really compliments everyone’s skin tone!! I started looking at so many red tops while watching … I might have to order a couple … lol!! I mean, how cute are these?!?!
Alright, this post is getting a little long so I will start to wrap it up now and I’ll leave you with my UPDATED top 5 list as things have changed a little since I watched the premier!! Here we go …
