To get on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette there is a three day screening process. There’s psychological testing, multiple choice tests, all types of tests, and it’s intense!!! I remember when I was on the show, after doing all of these tests a therapist pulled me aside and told me I should reconsider going on the show. From my previous experiences, relationships, and personality type I’m not good with rejection and I don’t experience heart ache well. It’s so weird because she was right. Still to this day my biggest stresses in life are rejection and heart ache. The stress it gave me after Jason let me go and after I broke up with Ed was next level. I was on an extreme downward spiral for the worst … I was gaining weight and then losing weight, to a point where I was 90 pounds and I was so sick. But I was WARNED that the show might not be a good fit for me … and maybe they were right? This show really isn’t for everyone…
I obviously have NO regrets going on the show … and am SO SO happy that I took that chance in the end because it made me into the person I am today. I made so many friends from it and so much good came out of it for me … but it came at a cost, an emotional cost. When you go on a show like this it’s emotionally traumatizing for most people and you have to be prepared for that and know what you’re getting yourself into.
My point being is this Chad guy is not a good fit for the show. He may have been warned, I don’t know!? But the producers knew that he had this type of temper and this type of personality and yes they probably did decide to keep him around for great TV. Everyone is hating on him but for the most part, I just feel bad for him. This isn’t the environment for him and he probably shouldn’t have gone on the show in the first place. He’s obviously competitive and has some anger issues but when you’re under a microscope with all of these cameras around and a house full of testosterone … I remember feeling like I was going to lose my mind, but in a different way … I was breaking down. Sadly for him, he shows his in aggression. Having said that there is a reason they kept him on the show and it isn’t because JoJo’s in love with him it’s because she quote-un-quote had to keep him for good TV and I honestly just feel bad for him.
Ok enough about that … and lets get back into the episode. I need to start off by saying how IMPRESSED I am with JoJo. Girl … you’ve really got your head screwed on right and you continue to blow me away with your optimism, your realness, your sense of humour, your beauty … lol I could go on but I won’t!! I am totally in awe with the way you have handled Chad in front of all the guys on MULTIPLE occasions. You are doing a great job at getting to know ALL of the guys … although I’m sure you probably already have your top 4 picked in your head. You’re giving everyone a fair chance and all I hope is that you come out of this with the man of your dreams on your arm!!!
The yoga date with Chase – wholy BALLS!!! lol I would feel so awkward … I mean I felt awkward watching it but they managed to really pull it together and turn it into a hot and steamy date some how!!!
DANIEL of all people should NOT be telling CHAD how to act … and comparing him to Hitler?!? WHAT … these guys are the true meaning of “meat heads” lol!! That was so hard to watch … were they serious? Did the show make them do that? I’m so confused… is it just me?
James I love you … I love that you play the guitar.. you’re gentle and caring and I think you’re a HUGE catch!! You’re date was amazing … BUT I don’t think you’re the one for JoJo!! And I don’t think she’s the one for you … EEEP SORRY!!!!
I loved how Jordan finally started opening up a bit and talked about his ex gf … kind of puts me at a peace of mind about their entire situation (who knows that ACTUALLY happened there???). But I am worried that JoJo MIGHT not pick him and she might feel like it’s too good to be true!? …. is it?
My front runners after last night’s episode of The Bachelorette and who I would pick for JoJo are … Rob, Luke, Jordan and Derek … who are yours!?!?!
