Last Nights Bachelor Recap in One Word: Awkward

That’s right!!!! If I could describe last night’s episode of The Bachelor in ONE WORD … it would be … AWKWARD!!!!!!

Seriously … OMG!!!! Where do I even begin?!?! Corinne … the SLAP … Liz secretly revealing her and Nick’s skeletons RIGHT in front of the girls??? What a damn shitshow… two hours of AMAZING shitshow awkwardness!!!!

RAVEN, VANESSA, JASMINE G., BRITTANY, ELIZABETH W., NICK VIALL, CORINNE, SARAH, ALEXIS, HAILEY, LACEY

Let’s start with the elephant in the room … Corinne … OMG I just can’t … Nick already has a reputation and even though he showed a different, more genuine side of himself on Bachelor in Paradise he’s STILL proving to this group of ladies and wellll to EVERYONE watching that he isn’t “THAT GUY” …. and Corinne is NOT helping this situation!!!!! I guess it DOES take two to tango so it’s not ALLLLL her fault!!! BUT she kind of proved that if you’re willing to show off your titties you’ll lock down a rose from Nick … insert eye roll here … LOL!!!!!

THE BACHELOR - "Episode 2102" - As Nick continues his search for love with the 22 remaining beautiful bachelorettes, Liz is particularly anxious: she is keeping a tumultuous secret about her romantic past with the Bachelor. Twelve other women are excited to dress up for their own wedding photo shoot with their "groom," Nick. Danielle M. snags the first one-on-one date of the season, as the couple helicopter to a steamy hot tub aboard a yacht. Six women get to act out a dramatic and sometimes funny "break-up" with Nick at Los Angeles' Museum of Broken Relationships, but it is the weight of Liz's sexy secret that throws everything into disarray. Will one night of passion in the past derail Nick's chances at a happily ever after from the start? Find out on "The Bachelor," MONDAY, JANUARY 9 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Rick Rowell) CORRINE, NICK VIALL

And while Corinne was taking her bikini top off so Nick could “pull a Janet Jackson” on her all while winning over Nick’s little head … errrrr…. I mean heart … Shark Girl traded her “dolphin” costume out for a wedding dress, a fake baby bump, a drink in hand and a gun to mock a shotgun wedding and totally KILLED it in her photo shoot with Nick … this girl is seriously hilarious!!!!!

If I could offer Corinne some advice it would go something like this … if you’ve had one on one time with Nick DO NOT … I REPEAT (she often likes to repeat herself …. so figured I would help a girl out) DO NOT steal him from another girl who hasn’t had much time with him … not only did she do this ONCE but she stole Nick THREE (or was it four?!?!) times in one evening!!! Oh and Corinne … keep your dang boobies in your top … unless you’re breastfeeding lol … and no, I don’t mean breastfeeding Nick!! LOL!!!!

Moving on to the Liz and Nick show … for more awkwardness … as she stood up in front of the girls and pretended to break up with Nick … all while literally explaining how they met and how their relationship unfolded THIS FAR … not only did the girls look completely confused as to what the hell was going on but Nick looked like her would much prefer another slap to the chops from Josephine than stand up there and listen a moment longer … oh man!!!! I feel for him AND her … I really do!!!!

Honestly though as soon as Liz mentioned she had met and hooked up with Nick previously at Jade and Tanner’s wedding I just KNEW that this was going to be a HUGE deal for the others girls … and I was just sitting here WAITING for that bomb to drop … and holy shittttt did it ever … not only did he send her home but he TOLD the girls and from what I can tell (before we got the dreaded “to be continued” message) they DID NOT take the news well … but I GET it!!! I remember just how wild everyone’s emotions are and when EVERYONE is trying to make a connection with ONE guy and then finding out that somebody has already been intimate him is enough to push ANYONE over the edge!!!! I mean … look at how crazy it drove the girls when Corinne got the rose tonight!!!! CUE THE CLAWS!!!!!

Can we just give an air high five (or a FEW hundred!!!!!!) to Danielle?!?! I FREAKING love this girl and she snagged the very first one on one date with Nick … I’m pretty sure I did a little happy dance when her name was read!!!! Danielle is a freakin GEM … at first I was thinking that she may be TOO sweet for Nick but as time goes on I think she may be EXACTLY what he needs!!!!!

I’m leaving you today with a PREDICTION … if Nick doesn’t propose to Danielle (which would be CRAZY in my books!!!!) I seriously believe she will be the next BACHELORETTE!!!!!! What do you think?!?!? Comment below if you agree with me and if you don’t … who do YOU think should be???

Is it next Monday yet?!?!?! Sigh … until next time …

  1. Amy says:

    Yes! I love Danielle! Totally agree…. what about the other Danielle too (I am still working on all the names though so that might not be it, in which case, never mind! Lol.)?! She seems super cute and sweet, although there hasn’t been much focus on her yet.

  2. Cherie Thomas Petrescu says:

    I couldnt agree more Jillian!! So glad Liz is gone although i would like to see Corrine go too! I love Dannielle!! Cant wait until next Monday!

  3. Nancy says:

    Good summary! Unfortunately I think Danielle will likely be too sweet for Nick, if he is responding to Corinne. I hope she is the next Bachelorette!! Yay, love that idea!!

  4. Lindsay B says:

    So I’m not the only one who thinks shark girl is hilarious and great?! I didn’t watch Andi’s season with nick where my friends said they didn’t love him but I loved him on Kaitlyn’s season and BIP. I lost some love for him when he gave Corinne the rose! And Danielle! Yes!!!! I also love Vanessa but I don’t feel like they have much of a connection yet.

  5. Erin Merkley says:

    Danielle is super sweet, but a tad on the tame side for Nick. I’m drawn to Vanessa. She seems sweet, real, not interested in the nonsense – and how adorable was she in the 80s dress! I also like the Dolphin girl. She’s hilarious.

  6. Laura says:

    Danielle is such a sweet girl, but I don’t think there was romantic chemistry between her and Nick. Although he seems into Corinne now, I also don’t think she is his type, and I think he will realize that once the sexual tension wears off. He seems to like brunettes, in the past anyways. It’s too bad the Liz situation turned out the way it did because I think in another time they are actually quite compatible. I also find a lot of the girls too young for him, Taylor is sweet but only 23. I’m liking Vanessa, not only is she Canadian but she seems mature and put together. I hope they get some time together soon.

  7. SarahDeelaney says:

    Corinne will be on Bachelor in Paradise, along with shark-dolphin girl. It is very clear that she will be the “Chad” drama of this season and they are using every moment to play up her persona to make for a crazier Bach in Paradise. And they’ll probably invite Chad back too and he’ll eat that up.

    I believe that Danielle will be in the top 3 and has a chance for next Bachelorette along with our French Canadian Girl.

    Honestly, I really miss the old Bachelor days when the dates were real and less risque. It was less about drama and more about real relationships happening. I think, though, we all watch to see more and more drama and the producers have to come up with “new” ideas each season and new heroes, villains…everyone has a “role” now, a back story…and so many are on it to be seen and further a future career in broadcasting, modeling or personal appearances. Being on the Bachelor is seen as a step to furthering their career. When you through this in the mix, there will be girls willing to do anything to get noticed.

    I think the whole Liz thing was uncomfortable and she was probably encouraged to share her story on that date by the producers. It is possible that it was already discussed anyway with Nick and the whole thing was just a way to get Liz on Bach in Paradise later. They need to make sure that cast is strong- that we have strong emotions tied to who they choose.

    Once you see this as entertainment and the Bachelor Empire as a business- then it all makes sense. Sure, there are real girls in there, very sweet ones (like Jilly was) but they also “cast” characters to fill roles. I am certain that Corinne was cast to do just as she is doing now. Just like Courtney was willing to be wild and free, it was time for another girl like that to “shock” us.

    And Nick is showing his party-boy side again. He likes to be a player and this is going to get him in trouble down the road even if he picks a great woman. Surely she will be uncomfortable with his over the top behavior with Corinne. A gentleman would have said, “While I appreciate your boldness, I really respect modesty and personal integrity and I would feel uncomfortable in front of the other women too putting my hands on you like this. Why don’t we just take a regular shoot together?” And a gentleman would have written her off as not a long term relationship type.

    Again, I wish we’d go back to more of the glam, the Cinderella type stories and the true dates.

  8. Chelsea Helm says:

    I love Danielle!! I think she is a huge wake up call from the other girls, she seems REAL! Oh man the Liz stuff was AWKWARD, i almost feel like she outed him because she knew she was gonna go home.. it was hard to watch!!! I was SHOCKED he gave Corrine the rose but i guess if you look at him and kaitlyns season he was kinda ballsy like Corinne.

  9. Kimberley Stang says:

    I totally agree Jillian! Danielle is such a gem! She seems raw, genuine, and down to earth. Corrine on the other hands is everything but! Just when I started liking Nick, he has me questioning him! ?

  10. Audrey Geary Bessonette says:

    I agree 100% with your entire recap!! I cringed A LOT while watching last night!!! It seems like this show does this frequently, where the bachelor/bachelorette is ‘blinded’ by that one crazy person in the beginning, but ultimately (most of the time), that person gets the boot!?
    Danielle is adorable and super sweet!!! I look forward to watching and hopefully seeing their relationship grow ❤
    Love your weekly Bach posts…..!!!

  11. Erin says:

    You are hilarious ❤️

  12. Heather says:

    I like Danielle M and Vanessa–I’d be happy with either of them ending up as the next Bachelorette (in fact, I hope that more for either of them than ending up with Nick). I can’t even comment on Corinne… ugh. I’m sure she’s a decent person when not a) drinking all day and b) off camera, but she comes across as a spoiled, immature, attention-seeking child. I have a feeling she’s going to be embarrassed by her antics someday (if not already, while watching the show!).

  13. Tricia Bold Olson says:

    You are saying EXACTLY my opinions on the show last night! CRAZY!!!! Love Danielle; Corinne is very immature; and Liz…Well, I think she wanted everyone to find out she slept with Nick. She wanted those bragging rights – I am so glad she is gone!

  14. Lynne Dugas says:

    I do agree too, and Corrine is a spoiled brat, she is acting out, and don,t know for sure, but she looked drunk last night, but what i don,t understand is Nick has a bad rap already, why did he not do something with Corrine, when she interrupted 3 times enough already, yes handle it with kid gloves, she may freak out or something, but he should have taken the high road in the pool and afterwards, and just want her to go home, and Liz is just getting the ladies going, of course there not going to be happy with knowing they had hooked up and had sex, really not a good way to go, and being a lady you don,t kiss and tell.

  15. Avril says:

    Yes my thoughts exactly Jill.

  16. Lauren says:

    Raven for next bachelorette!! She is so sweet.

  17. Ali Beatty says:

    Totally Agree! Can’t stand Corrine and Love Danielle. And love you and your little family! Congratulations on your engagement!

  18. Amy J Trimble says:

    I 100% agree about Danielle I had her pegged from the intro video before she even met Nick! She had such a calm and centred aura about her that would really work with Nicks Bacheleor in Paradise zen…and she is a baby nurse! Love

  19. Shelley Hunt says:

    as soon as corrine got the rose, i actually said “NOPE!” out loud and turned off the episode. this is a trainwreck i will absolutely look away from. 2016 had enough rewarded bullies – too many. i’m out! i’ll start watching again if he drops her.

  20. RTR says:

    Totally agree with everything you said! I absolutely love Danielle! And as for Corrine….yikes Nick. You are proving to be what some have labeled you to be ☹️

  21. Mel says:

    It to early for Bachelorette she is

  22. Amy Lumsden says:

    Agreed! Danielle is/should be the one. She has a heart of gold and is clearly there for the right reasons. If Nick was crazy enough not to see that she would definitely be a fantastic Bachelorette!

  23. Corrine says:

    Wow could this post get more judgey and mean? This show is absolutely stupid and makes women look bad – how do you support this shit? I assume they pay you to post this garbage…..

    • Candace Jensen says:

      Corrine, you say this show is absolutely stupid… we all know Jillian from the Bachelor franchise. You opened this post knowing it was Jill’s thoughts and opinions for the episode, you clearly follow Jillian if you saw this post, so why such a negative comment to someone you had to at one time liked enough to follow her? I’m sure if you had the opportunities that this show has given Jillian and have actually GONE through the experience (which warrants her opinions because NEWSFLASH, she’s been there done that) then maybe you’d support “this shit” too.

      • Justine says:

        Candace – no need to be a jerk here. Why such a negative comment ? Do you think you have the right to be negative to someone and they don’t have the right to be negative about a list? Hypocrite much?

        • Kaitlyn says:

          You’re going to call someone out for being negative? What a joke. Why are you still here.

        • Candace Jensen says:

          Justine I do not see how my comment was negative, I did not say anything rude to Corrine nor did I name call or anything else one might consider negative, I was simply pointing out the one of obvious reasons why Jillian supports the “shit” Corrine mentioned.

  24. Sabrina says:

    100% agree… and btw I love how candid you were! You echoed all my thoughts… although I really do feel for Liz. I feel like the editing of the show really played up the “is she here for the right reasons”, when, according to her “break-up speech”, it sounded like she was trying to protect herself from more hurt. Nonetheless, I don’t think her and Nick really had a chance given the nature of this show. He was so awkward around her, so it was probably best he let her go. There were no scenes for next weeks episode… is it going to be on??

  25. Karen Rochetta says:

    OMG, you nailed that episode, excellent recap and I agee with everything you said….shit show indeed! Danielle was my pick the first night, hope he sees past the titties and picks her in the end!

  26. Katerina Katsogiannos says:

    I agree Danielle is awesome and would make a great bachelorette!!! But if not her… then ME!!!?

  27. Jill Baker says:

    So we PVR’d last nights show and watched it today. O.M.G!!!! Holy awkwardness Batman!!!
    Corrine has to go. And what was Liz thinking bringing all that up in front of all the other girls on the date? I felt sorry for her up till then! Danielle is SO sweet but I don’t think she’s his type..he likes the ‘bad’ girls (obviously — giving that rose to Corinne phhhhtt). This episode was actually painful to watch. And WHY can’t the girls just say NO when Corinne keeps butting in to their time with Nick? Forget being all nice! Oh and why would they be mad about Nick and Liz hooking up months earlier? She’s gone now, and do they honestly think he was a virgin coming onto the show? Insert head slap here.
    Anyways, I didn’t like Nick, and then I liked him, and now the jury is out again. We shall see.

  28. Yass says:

    I don’t think Danielle M should be the next Bachelorette.

    Don’t get me wrong. I believe Danielle is a wonderful and kind woman. She is the sweet and soft all-american white girl that the franchise loves. Think of the Lauren B. last season, or Whitney on season 19, Nikki on season 18, Lindsay and AshLee in season 17 and, of course, the ever-lovely Emily Maynard. These are just a few examples. These girls tend to make it to the top four and the Bachelorette is always one of them.

    You all know the issue the Bachelor franchise has with diversity. In more than 30 seasons (Bachelo AND Bachelorette) never has a black person been the lead or even made it to the Top 4. The only man of color who has been a lead in the Bachelor is Juan Pablo (who, by the way, is white-passing) and we all know how that ended.

    Last season, the show had the opportunity to cast Caila Quinn as the next Bachelorette. She came third on Ben’s season. She has all the characteristics you see and love in Danielle: sweet, intelligent, soft, well-spoken and well-liked. She also happenes to be half filipino. She almost became the first Bachelorette of color. But the production of the show passed on casting her and instead chose Jojo (whose mother is persian but, let’s be frank, is white-passing). I love Jojo, she’s strong and compassionate. But the fact that the producers didn’t choose Caila was depressing to many.

    This season seems different. There is way more diversity than in past ones. There are many women of color that seem wonderful and interesting: Jasmine B., Taylor, Jaimi, Dominique, Danielle L. and, of course, the recipient of the First Impression Rose: Rachel. She was the first black woman (and person) on the history of the show to get the FIR.

    Rachel looks like an excellent choice for next Bachelorette: she is smart, elegant, sweet and refreshing. She is a career girl. She got the FIR! And many people think she’ll make it far this season, judging from the season preview (she and Nick are seen toasting: “to Finland!”). The show has the opportunity to take a big step towards diversity if they choose Rachel. I believe she would do a great job as the Bachelorette!

    What do you guys think? ?

  29. Voice of Reason says:

    Danielle was my #1 pick on night one, and obviously he’s interested if he chose her for the first one on one, but I didn’t really see any sparks on that date. Maybe it’s the editing, and they’re trying to keep us guessing? And it is early, so anything could happen, but I’m half worried she’s going to end up in the friend zone, just like Mike with Jasmine. No matter how perfect someone seems, if the chemistry is missing…

  30. Camie Maslowski says:

    I liked Danielle a lot but she is too quiet for Nick – I can tell he would not be attracted to her type and probably wants someone a bit more outgoing. And, unfortunately, I think she’s too boring “read normal and grounded” to be the next Bachelorette.
