Hi everyone!! Mindy here! As many of you know, Jillian is soaking up the sun in Hawaii this week (and hopefully doing so with a Mai Tai in hand!) so I’ve taken over her blog today because I want to share my thoughts on Monday’s episode of The Bachelor!!
Can we kick it off by chatting about a little Demi drama quickly? Let’s just go for it!
There’s no denying Demi is a confident girl and she certainly goes after what she wants! I don’t necessarily think she is a villain or out to get anyone (except for Colton, that is!) but I do think she enjoys ruffling some feathers and stirring the pot.
I have to admit though, there were a couple of things Demi said on Monday that I TOTALLY don’t agree with! First off, she fired me up when she said: “I’m not worried about it, because there’s no advantage to being an older woman here,” … ummm hold up. Demi, Demi, Demi … no. Just no. LOL! Maybe I didn’t like this comment because I’m about 10 years older than Demi but damn … if she thinks the “older” women aren’t competition, she has another thing coming! ?
She also said this: “I think Colton will realize he needs a girl in his life that is more bold and confident and will take a bit more of a dominant role. I think that Colton is looking for a girl that can take charge and take control. Even if he, like, doesn’t know that he’s looking for that, I think that that’s what he needs.” … I couldn’t disagree more.
When I look at Colton and how he interacts with the other girls I feel as though he needs a girl who, yes, is CONFIDENT in herself but I don’t think he needs someone who is DOMINANT. I think that Colton would vibe the best with someone who is on the same level as he is. Down to earth, invested in a long term relationship and who is on an equal playing field as their partner. What do you think?? Am I totally out to lunch here? Let me know in the comments section!
Elyse totally refers herself to a cougar and I think it’s so hilarious! I know Demi doesn’t view Elyse as much competition as she is “older” but I think Elyse is a force to be reckoned with!!! I didn’t notice Elyse much during the premiere but I think she came out swinging in Monday’s episode and I totally ADORE her!
I truly think Elyse could really go far here, I love the fact that she is confident in herself but not cocky, her personality actually makes me think of the quote, “Confidence is silent, insecurities are loud” … bang on, hey?!
Who else is cheering Elyse on?
I think Hannah B is so cute and I was happy to see her get the first one on one date but I was shocked to see how awkward the entire date was UNTIL she finally opened up to Colton at dinner (which TOTALLY saved her ass by the way!). I completely understand where she is coming from and WHY she was shutting down.
I thought it was brilliant (and so amazing!) that Colton told her to stop feeling like she needs to be perfect, I think as soon as he said that, it was like a weight lifted off her shoulders. Colton is an old soul ladies … and it’s freakin awesome!
Also … I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again … WHY do they feel it’s necessary to hot tub in BROAD daylight in the scorching heat?! I don’t get it. I would be totally overheating and so red and blotchy if I were in that hot tub. I will never understand this portion of the one on one dates. Ever. ?
