Good morning, loves! Kayla here and I am back with another recap of The Bachelor! Wowwww! I am still shoooook over how that episode ended last night and I am seriously questioning some of Peter’s decisions! So, let’s start from the beginning of how it all went down!
With hometown dates right around the corner, who else do you call for advice besides your loving mama bear?! Peter addresses his concerns to his mom about the women and wonders if they’re reeeeally ready for a future with him. I feel like Peter is still struggling from getting blindsided by Hannah Brown last season and is also scared of ending up in a Hannah-Jed situation with someone who’s not there for the “right” reasons.
Madison’s One on One
You guysss… this date!!!! The chemistry between these two is undeniable… just natural, flirty and fun! I’m totally here for it. The two spend the day visiting the fishing village of Pucusana and Peter refers to Madison as a “total catch” – how fitting! LOL!
They head out for dinner that evening and Madison shows up wearing a stunning red jumpsuit … hot damn! She shares how important her faith is to her and raising a family and Peter’s delayed reaction totally threw me off?! After a veryyyyy long pause, Peter drops the “L” bomb and tells Madison he’s falling in love with her and her reaction was soooo stinkin’ cute! Did anyone else have tears in their eyes?! I’m having a really hard time seeing anyone else but “Maddie” at the end of this?? Do you guys agree?!
Natasha’s One on One
I feel like it’s neverrrr a good sign when someone is getting their first date this late in the game and I can’t really say I’m overly surprised with how Natasha and Peter’s date turned out?! The whole date to me was kinda like … yadda yadda yadda … we know she’s going home, let’s wrap it up! LOL!
I’ve never felt much of a spark between Natasha and Peter and it always seemed like more of a friendship than a romantic connection?! This date was definitely no different. After a day spent exploring the Plaza de Armas, Peter ended the date by telling Natasha he couldn’t give her the rose and he didn’t seem too upset about it? And, neither did she? Would you guys agree the connection just wasn’t there? That might have been the least dramatic break up in Bachelor History?? I think it’s safe to say Natasha is packin’ her bags for Paradise! LOL!
Kelsey’s One on One
I really enjoyed this date! Kelsey and Peter start their day ATV riding in the mountains and then head to the top of the mountain where they just hang out … and make-out! LOL! They had a conversation about marriage and having kids and I reeeeally liked Kelsey’s answers – I definitely see some maturity in Kelsey that is lacking with the other girls. This date went really well and definitely put them in a good place heading into the evening!
During dinner, Kelsey has something she wants to reveal to Peter… dun dun dun! I was waiting for some deep dark family secret butttt Kelsey revealed that after many years, she’s reconnected with her estranged father and her mom isn’t aware yet. So, she basically asked Peter to keep this information hush hush if he visits her hometown. Peter gave Kelsey a rose and he will be heading to Iowa to visit Kelsey’s family!
Is anyone else SHOCKED at how this relationship has evolved?! How Kelsey made it past the night one champagne “finasco”, is beyond me?! LOL! We have seen MANY sides to Kelsey and while she has definitely grown on me, I’m stilllllll not convinced I see a future with her and Peter!
Three on One Date
Guysssss, what the Kell-ey?!! LOL! Was anyone else super bummed that Kelley was portrayed as the villain this week?! I mean, she’s not wrong when she refers to the others as children?? I ALSO question the readiness of Hannah Ann and Victoria for marriage??
It was totally cracking me up to see Kelley chillin’ like a villain on this date while the other girls were stressing out hard! I LOVED when Kelley said to Peter, “Not every relationship has to sit here and be jumping through hurdles and super hard and all this stuff. It can be easy and still could be fun.” Amen!!! I think the reality is that Kelley is too mature for Peter and the more I watched them together, the more I found they aren’t as great a match as I had originally thought. Would you guys agree?!
During Hannah Ann’s alone time with Peter, she immediately starts crying and tells Peter that she’s emotional from all the stress built up during the week. Oh, please!!! I feel like the girls have figured out that Peter rewards emotional and dramatic behaviour so that’s their go-to now??? Is it just me, or is Hannah Ann’s age reeeeally telling?! She wrote Peter a list of her favourite things about him (“things” spelled with a heart above the i … LOL!) and I mean, it was kinda cute … for like, your high school boyfriend?!
I am officially OVER Victoria! Peter tries to have a conversation with her about the issues going on between them and it went downhill REAL fast! It’s ridiculous to me that Victoria called Peter out for “always being in a mood” when I feel like SHE is a mood herself?! I used to really enjoy Victoria but now everyyyy conversation she has with Peter is sooo exhausting to watch! They really struggle to talk through their differences and I don’t think their relationship would ever survive in the real world! Peter feeds into the drama once AGAIN and rewards her behavior with a rose?! Seriously?? Run Peter, Run!!!!
Peter shockingly ends the three on one date giving Hannah Ann the final rose and sending Kelley home … Ummm, what in the world?! Would you guys agree that Kelley seemed totally unphased?! Who’s with me when I say, Kelley for Bachelorette!! #JusticeForKelley
Can you guys believe that hometowns are next week?! It literally feels like this season JUST started! The preview looks SO good and I’m especially interested in Madison’s hometown date since she has something very important that she needs to share with Peter! I mean, it wouldn’t be a season of The Bachelor without someone exposing they still have their V-Card! LOL!
I’d love to know what you guys thought about this episode! Let me know in the comments below!
Until next week!
