Alright … I assume I wasn’t the only one totally freaked out over Kendall’s Taxidermy room last night … right? I could barely stomach this hometown date … she originally lost me when they walked into her room dedicated to her strange obsession and then she REALLY FREAKIN lost me when she busted out the rats to stuff and took it as far as to bust out a backdrop. If I were Arie I would have run so damn fast out of that room and I wouldn’t have looked back. I’m sorry, but that was the creepiest. What did you think of it??? Also, I noticed that her family kept saying “Kendall is a bit quirky” … it’s like they were trying to say “We know she’s got a weird thing for taxidermy … but she’s a nice person … just a bit quir-ky …” lol … right?? Anyway, raise of hands, HOW many of you were hoping Kendall and her twin sister, Kylie would swap clothes and see if Arie noticed?? LOL! I’m so curious to know if he would be able to tell them apart! LOL!
Moving on to Tia’s date, I think she absolutely NAILED this date with Arie, she busted out ALL the stops! From racing around a track to cracking a beer while sitting on a tailgate, this was an epic “Dude Date”, if you ask me! To be honest, this was also the first time I was actually excited while watching Arie on a date … when he DRIFTED around that corner around Tia in the race car … I have to admit, that was pretty hot. Wowzers!! I absolutely LOVED Tia’s dad too, he was so sweet but my favourite part was when he said that “Tia digs him” and that he “can find him on Google” if he needs to track him down … uh oh … this isn’t looking good now, is it, Arie?? LOL! I STILL think that Tia needs to find a rugged mountain man who is a little more forward and “takes the bull by the horns” … I’ve always thought Arie was too timid for her! I say, Tia for the next Bachelorette!!! 100%!
I thought Becca’s date was cute, that Apple Orchard was seriously the best thing ever, I was so obsessed with the caramel apple station and I wish we had one here for our Okanagan summers!! I feel like so many apples go to waste here and this could be a great way to use them up! LOL! Anyway, I was soooo nervous for Arie on this date … I thought he was walking into a landmine, everyone looked so serious and so disapproving at first but then they turned out to be so sweet!! I loved when her mom was chatting with Arie and she said “You’ve really done well with my weird family!”, LOL! I think we can all relate to that somehow, right?!
Then there was Laren’s date … Arie was sooooo nervous and soooo sweaty and I think this just goes to show HOW MUCH he freakin likes this girl! He wasn’t this worked up over any of the other dates, and you could tell he was constantly searching for the right thing to say to her mom and dad. I really believe that Lauren and Arie would make a great couple and they just make sense together. I also think that she is quite reserved and quiet right now because she is nervous about getting hurt … she’s protecting herself and I think that’s smart of her to do. You never know what could happen. Arie’s proven to be a tough one to predict lately!
Alright, before we wrap this up, let’s quickly take a peek at my predictions from my last Bachelor Recap! Last week I predicted the following:
Becca K: I think Becca’s hometown will be interesting … but I’m not convinced she will make it to the top 3! Well, looks like I was wrong about this one … which I’m sort of surprised about, to be honest!!
Lauren: If her family like Arie and things go well … I REALLY think she will end up with the engagement ring!! I STILL think Laren will end up engaged to Arie in the end!! I think they make total sense together!!
Kendall: If her taxidermy collection doesn’t send him running … then I don’t know what will ?? … but I do think she will make top two. He saw, he participated, and he stuck around and I STILL think Kendall will make top two!
Tia: I think Tia will make top three but will be sent home after that. She may even move on to become the next Bachelorette?? Or maybe that rugged man of her dreams (or mine?? LOL!), will come and whisk her away!! I’m shocked Tia was sent home but I have my fingers crossed she’ll be the next Bachelorette … or, I could 100% see her on Bachelor in Paradise. Either way, this won’t be the last we see of Tia!
So, to recap, I think it will be Lauren and Kendall as the FINAL TWO and I almost want to bet money that he picks Lauren to be his fiance … what do you think??
Ps. Don’t forget to tune in this SUNDAY AND MONDAY … that’s right, we’re in store for a double header!! Okay, make sure to share your thoughts on everything below, I’m so curious to know what you think!!
