The Bachelor Recap: Arie is Back in Action!

Hi everyone!! Mindy here!! Did you watch last night’s episode of The Bachelor?? When they first announced Arie as the new Bachelor I actually didn’t remember who he was … but then again, that was 5 or 6 years ago (holy crap!!), but after watching last night’s episode and the recap of Emily’s season I definitely remembered him and remember thinking he was sweet at the time. Also, I have to admit, 5 years did Arie well!! I’m digging his salt and pepper hair … I mean, take a little peek at the photo comparison below … S&P for the win, right??

In addition to the S&P hair, it also seems like Arie has really found himself over these last few years, not only has he been racing like crazy but he also fired up a career in Real Estate … there’s nothing sexier than a guy who is passionate AND motivated!! Plus, it really does seem like Arie is there for the right reasons and seems to have a heart of gold. Who’s with me??

Anyway, I won’t ramble on too long here but I wanted to share a few thoughts from last night’s premiere. Let’s kick this off with my top 5 girls …


Annaliese came out at the “Kissing Bandit” which was kind of corny but also cute at the same time … I think she definitely won Arie over with it as he mentioned how nice it was to see her cheeky playful side and also her more serious, and sweet side once the mask came off. I think Annaliese will be making it pretty far this season!

I really liked Tia right from the get-go, I think it might have something to do with the fact that she is so similar to Raven … and how could you not love Raven? I thought it was pretty funny to hear that she is from “Weiner” Arkansas but think it was a little offside of her to make a “little wiener” joke to Arie … gulp.

Bekah seemed super adorable and spunky and I think Arie really adores her but she seems sooooo young, I know that age doesn’t really matter when it comes to love but I fear that the other girls might take advantage of her age. Does anyone know how old she ACTUALLY is?? I read that she is 22 and I think that seems right!

Not only is Seinne STUNNING but she seriously won ME over when she gave Arie the elephant cufflinks, I thought that was the most thoughtful gift ever!!

Maquel made the friggin entrance of the night if you ask me … ripping up in a racecar and looking hot as hell. How did Arie not fall over after that entrance?! I think Maquel will be around for a long time but I’m not certain she will make it to top three.

Welp. It’s no surprise that every season comes with its round of troublemakers and I have to say, I’m a little shocked by Chelsea. When they first introduced Chelsea on the show I didn’t peg her as a troublemaker but it certainly didn’t take long for that to come out in her. I think she will be around for the long haul and will cause her fair share of drama along the way. Also, did you happen to watch the preview for the entire season?? It looks like Krystal drums up some chaos too … it’ll be interesting to see how this unfolds along the way!!

  1. I haven’t watched mine yet. Been very sick. I do have a question about all the celebrities going to Mexico. It’s such a scarey place with all the corruption there. Itsceven recommended not to go. Aren’t you scared.?I am assuming they are offering all of you celebrities such good deals and that’s the answer. But is it worth your life. My own daughter and her husband went andcwere almost eaten by a pack of wild dogs while walking acbeach area. Could watch you tsk for hours, you just hsve it. Love videos if Leo and Leo with nacho. When you are a sick Person, instagram, WWF and TV give me so much pleasure. My fave, now dint get mad is Molly Manny and herveith her dad. He is hilarious with her. Leo comes in a close second. Thanks for sharing your life. We adore you!!!!

  2. I’m with you on Tia and Bekah but would round out my top 5 with Becca (first impression is down to earth), Kendall (despite the taxidermy collection) and Lauren S (what a gorgeous dress). Look forward to next week’s recap, Mindy! I recommend listening to the Here to Make Friends podcast each week for some funny commentary on the show.

  3. Ah I love this show!!! And agreed that Arie’s salt & pepper hair is pretty damn sexy! I like your top 5! I would add in Becca. I don’t know what it was about her, but I really liked her!!! Have fun in Mexico xo

  4. Top picks Becca, Bekah, Seinne, Tia, Annaliese, Maquel and Caroline.
    My two top picks, Bekah just exudes confidence and cool, the other Becca is just classy.

  5. My thoughts, Becca all the way. Beautiful, smart and funny. Now Bekah, well not sure she is there for love. Tia is stunning, she looks a lot like Jade to me
