The Bachelorette Recap: And Then There Were Two

I have to start this Bachelorette recap by saying … stick a fork in me, I’m done. I honestly have no idea what’s going on in Becca’s head!! Here I thought I had it all figured out!! I didn’t expect that the last two guys would be Blake and Garrett!! I really thought Jason would have been standing up there in replace of one of them!

Also … before I dig into the dates and how I’m feeling about what happened with each of the guys last night … I just want to point out one thing. How many of you notice how much Becca brings up Arie to the guys?!! OMG. I couldn’t handle how much his name was brought up. She reallllllyyyyy needs to stop comparing everything to how she was feeling on Arie’s season … or how Arie made her feel … and Arie this and Arie that. Becca … for the sanity of the guys and all of us watching, leave Arie in the past, he’s there for a reason.

Jillian Harris The Bachelorette Recap

Anway, sorry for the mini vent session, I had to address that before it drove me completely crazy! Alright, let’s quickly chat about what happened last night, starting with Blake’s date!

Blake

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again … Blake is just too consumed by Becca … you can obviously tell that the guy likes her A LOT but I think he really needs to slow his roll. Blake is quite sensitive when it comes to Becca. I mean, I wouldn’t be able to watch someone I loved dated two other people and just sit back and be all cool with it either so I get why he is stressed but I find him to be a bit smothering at times.

However, I think Blake is a REALLY nice guy and I have no doubt he will make one girl VERY VERY happy but I don’t think that girl is Becca! I’m actually quite nervous for the finale because I think he is going to be absolutely DEVASTATED if she doesn’t pick him and I hate seeing people get hurt like that. Having said that … Blake will be juuuuuust fine if he doesn’t get picked … I mean, I wonder how many of his 200k+ Instagram followers are sliding into his DM’s already?!?! LOL!!

Jillian Harris The Bachelorette Recap

Jason

When I was watching Becca with Jason I was SO CONFUSED as to where her emotions were coming from and as much as I was annoyed that she let him go … I also understand the feeling of when it’s “not there” it’s just not there. You cannot force yourself to love someone when you know in your heart that it’s not exactly right and you can’t push past the feeling of knowing something is missing from the relationship. It’s SO HARD to let someone like Jason go because I’m sure Becca knows what a stand up guy he is … I mean, what guy comes BACK to the girl that just dumped him and give her the sweetest little book and say the kindest things to her?? That does not happen often.

Ladies … if you’re single and ready to mingle … MESSAGE JASON NOW!!! This one’s a keeper and I can’t imagine he will be on the market for long!! LOL!!

Garrett

Well … there’s no denying Garret is the one for Becca! He has certainly grown on me over time and it’s obvious how much he loves Becca. I love the fact that he is head over heels for her but it’s not overwhelming!! He’s doing it right (so far!), folks!!

At this point, I think Becca will pick Garrett in the end and I can see them being quite a fantastic couple! In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked if they got married right away and they have a little babe soon … I think both of them are at the same stage in life when it comes to getting the show on the road so I don’t think they’ll waste much time just being engaged.

Jillian Harris The Bachelorette Recap

Alright, there you have it … short and sweet … I’m pretty excited and NERVOUS to see who Becca chooses and how the news is received by both guys but until then, I have THREE words to wrap up this recap … JASON FOR BACHELOR!!!!!

  1. Nicole says:

    I mostly agree BUT I think Garrett is way wrong for her. I just have a bad feeling and I don’t think it’s going to work out for her if she chooses him (which, after last night, I’m convinced she will). Also, yes, JASON FOR BACHELOR!!

  2. Renne says:

    I defiantly agree with you about Becca constantly bringing up Arie. I noticed that at the beginning and it’s very annoying. We all know what happened, no need to keep bringing it up.
    Also I think she will choose Garrett in the end. I’ve liked him from the first episode and think they will be great together!

  3. Madeline says:

    Love your comments Jillian!!’ You are my all time favourite Bachelorette. You are such an inspiration and the life you have chosen is so beautiful!

  4. Devon says:

    I love Garrett 🙂 I think he would make an excellent husband! he was my choice from the start!
    Mini Van all the way!

    And yes Jason For the next Bachelor!

    • Carrie says:

      I too was confused at just how many times Becca brought up Arie…I was cringing every time she said his name, and actually started feeling really bad for the guys every time she did say his name! That MUST stop!!! Second, I think Garrett and Becca are definitely going to end up together…they just seem to be on the same page with everything in life! As far as Jason for Bachelor….YES!!!! What an amazing man…he was so quiet all along the series, but once we finally got to see who he is…what a catch! Congratulations to the woman who becomes his queen…she will be adored by him!

  5. Jacqueline says:

    I say she chooses Garrett! I’ve seen it from the beginning…. They seem like they would be able to continue their relationship long term and are totally on the same page.

    Blake is going to be so crushed. But I can see him as the Bachelor. I’m getting some Ben Higgins vibes from him…. Just saying. Blake for the next Bachelor!!!

  6. Gayle says:

    I have liked Garrett from the moment he pulled up in the minivan, got the first impression rose, and his hometown date was fabulous, as was his family. He just seems to light up whenever he sees Becca. I also liked Blake, but he seems way too intense for Becca, at least that’s how I see him. I think Jason is the BEST candidate for the next Bachelor….omg, he is such a great guy, and he is super educated. Has anyone noticed how proper his English is when he speaks? Anyway, loved Jason’s hometown, on the ice and such. He’s going to make some woman very happy and be a terrific father. I’m sayin’ it now….JASON FOR BACHELOR!!

  7. Mina says:

    I am sooo upset she let Jason go, he’s such a cute, polite, sweet guy…. he was my fav!!!!! I like Blake not my first pick but Garrett seems a better fit for Becca. His smile kinda bothers me lol but he seems so in love with her!!!
    Loved this season and Bachelor insiders, PICK JASON FOR NEXT BACHELOR!!!!! aka young Andy Garcia

  8. Tammy says:

    Garret hasn’t grown on me and I’m positive Becca will pick him but I don’t think they’ll go the distance. FIRST Becca needs to get over Arie before she will have a successful relationship. The constant comparisons are very telling of where she’s really at. Jason for Bachelor without question.

  9. judi says:

    Idon’t what to think at this point who becca is going to pick neither of them or blake

  10. Jessica says:

    Great recap! I agree with you all the way. I think her and Garrett complement each other really well. Their date was adorable ❤️ Jason for bachelor %100! He is such a stand up guy!! It’s funny, I think the last four bachelorettes have ended up picking the guy they gave their first impression rose to! If Becca picks Garrett I think she is the fourth? Kaitlyn, Jojo and Rachel all ended up with the first impression rose guy. The ladies know what they are doing!! Thanks Mindy! I always look forward to reading your recap!

  11. Tanis S says:

    I have thought she was most interested in Blake and Garret since the beginning of the season, so wasn’t surprised last night. Earlier in the season, I was leaning towards Blake for the win, but now it seems like it will be Garrett. Of course, they always try to mislead us with how they edit the show, but I do think that if you watch her closely, she seems as smitten with Garrett as he is with her. And I’m pretty sure Jason will be the bachelor because that whole thing with him coming back to talk to her seemed like an obvious set up by the producers to warm us up. I would have preferred Colton, but Jason will be good, too.

  12. Judy says:

    Hmm I liked Jason so hope he is the next Bachelor and I heard she picks Garrett and they have already broken up hopefully not true!!

  13. Cheryl says:

    Yes, Jason for Bachelor!?

  14. Eleanor says:

    I think Garrett is the one for Becca….and he DID get the first impression rose! He and Becca feel like two old souls who have met before. Blake is a wonderful person…. I agree a little needy or insecure….and what is wrong with his voice??!
    And yes, I definitely agree that Jason would be great as the next Bachelor…

  15. Sheila Greenberg says:

    I agree with your synopsis also Jason for the next Batchelor

  16. Jaime says:

    We can’t forget about Garett’s instagram likes… I don’t think he’s the one for Becca.

  17. Aubrey says:

    I absolutely LOVE Blake and have all season, it’s gonna be so hard to watch if she doesn’t choose him!! That being said, sadly I think becca is going to choose Garrett. I see a lot of people who really like Garrett and think they’re perfect for each other but I just don’t see it (maybe it’s just because of the horrible things he was liking on social media that make it hard for me to see past). If she chooses Blake I’ll be surprised but over the moon, he’s the one that I personally think is best for her!! Although I definitely do agree, JASON FOR BACHELOR !!!!

  18. Elaine says:

    I noticed Arie’s name all evening also thought she was doing a segment on hair styling! Stop playing with the hair Becca your not 16 anymore
    Not sure why all the tears and constant leaving the scene.

  19. Cindy Loney says:

    Yes, I felt Becca was mentioning Arie too much. Very sad to see Jason go, he’s so nice, especially the scrapbook.

    Blake is way over his head on Becca, kinda scary how he’s going be at the end, poor guy.

    I also think Garrett will be the one, yes, maybe you are right on getting marry & having a baby.

  20. Razor says:

    Too much Arie talk for sure ! Enough already!

  21. Ersula says:

    I had the top four picked from the start, and the final two picked from Colton’s first one on one. I thought Jason would go home before Colton though. I think Garrett is a better fit for her and on home towns they seemed to be in the same place. I don’t think either of them will be a wrong choice. I am a little concerned with Blake’s confidence however, and don’t think he will handle a break up well. I don’t think after week one Arie’s name should come out of her mouth to the guys – it should just be about her and them. I wouldn’t mind Jason or Colton for the next bachelor!

  22. Maryellen says:

    Becca will pick Garrett. I agree Becca needs to stop comparing Arie to other men.

  23. Kate says:

    I agree with you 100%. Blake is much too intense. Loved Jason but I think she will pick Garrett.

  24. Lyndsay says:

    I have to respond to your vent session about Becca constantly bringing Arie up…I said these exact words to my husband during the episode! It’s one thing to relate to what they are discussing but it is constant that she is mentioning his name! And no one likes hearing about an Ex!
    I feel like Blake is a real nice guy also but he seems to be really in his own head like he expressed. I dont blame him but I dont think hes the one! My heart hurt for Jason last night but he was such a gentleman on coming back to get formal closure, super respectful!
    GARRETT….him and Colton were my # 1’s since the beginning. I find Garrett to be so genuine, real and incredibly charming! Who would give up seeing his smile every day!?

  25. Carole says:

    Jason’s been my pick throughout then Blake. I do like Garrett too and I think he’s the one she’ll pick. She says it a few times. Drop with the Arie stuff.. jeez Louise… get over it. Hopefully she has or it’ll be very difficult for anyone to break that mindset. She’ll need help with it, as in, not bringing it into the new relationship. C’mon Becca, do the right thing.

    • Kendra says:

      I have commented many times through Becca’s journey that Arie’s name has been brought up FAR to many times. ENOUGH! Is she really over him?! And I liked Jason but will now root for Blake.

    • Amy says:

      I agree, Jason for the next Bachelor! He is so sweet, mature and expresses himself really well. At first I was thinking Colton, I could easily watch him for a full season, but I don’t think he is ready for marriage.

      I’m not a fan of Garrett. I find him really boring and not well spoken. I think he just says what she wants to hear and didn’t make much conversation last night.

      Blake is my favourite if I have to pick between him and Garrett. However, as much as I think he is a sweet guy, I am not convinced they are right for each other as far as forever. Although I do think she will be engaged in the end, I don’t think a relationship will last with either of them no matter who she chooses 🙁

  26. Jody says:

    What was kind of weird he didn’t have that scrap book in his hand when he walked up to the door so I’m sure one of the interns for the show put that book together. I’m sure the Arie mentions our producer driven.

  27. Kim L says:

    Agreed! Blake is TOO consumed and A LOT smothering! It’s honestly cringe worthy watching him lol And I don’t know if it’s just me but he seems like he’s close to a nervous breakdown..? Bottom line, I don’t think he’s emotionally or mentally stable enough for any relationship right now. I like Garrett for Becca! There’s an ease and a balance to them. It’s pleasant to watch. Their overall vibe seems a lot more healthy as opposed to her and Blake. Jason was my first pick! ??? I was heartbroken for him yesterday but I have zero doubts he will find his person! ❤️?

  28. Jacquie says:

    Yes JASON for the Bachelor!!! He’s definitely a stand up guy. No potty party and still wishes Becca the best!!

  29. Wendy says:

    I think Garrett is tooooo smothering and nice and over the top attentive. You can only take so much of that.
    The only choice seems to be Blake, now that she let Jason go…(big mistake).

  30. Pam Martin says:

    Totally agree with you. I think it will be Garret. He’s from my area of California. I was rooting for him. Jason as the next Bachelor, Yes!

  31. Summer says:

    The reason why she was so off with Jason is that she had just spent the night with Blake, the man she has said she’s said in love with! That’s why she couldn’t fake it with Jason. Y’all are gonna be wrong because it’s gonna be Blake! Garrett is not for her—something off about them. The whole blaming his first wife for everything. Nah. It’s Blake. ABC’s throwing you off. Watch and see. And Jason will be the next bachelor. Totally set him up for that last night!

  32. Doreen Loewen says:

    I so agree!! Jason for sure for bachelor!!!

  33. Nicki says:

    Jason is a classy guy and he deserves better than the type of ladies that land on this show (with a few exceptions of course), and because of that he will be just fine finding his person outside tv, by the way he looks like a young Al Pacino, especially in The Godfather ?

  34. Sharon says:

    Becca is not over Arie. Not by a long shot… it’s too soon and I really do not think either of these guys will be around for the long run.
    I really just did not like this season at all.

  35. Renee says:

    Jason has been my favourite since day 1. He’s soooo sweet, sincere, just a beautiful human all around. I’m ok that she let him go. Hoping he’s the next bachelor 🙂
    I’d love to see more of him next season ❤️

  36. George says:

    Nailed it on all accounts! And I too do not want her to mention Arie ever again, move on you have great guys to choose from so don’t chase them away!

  37. Karen Harris says:

    I agree! I think she and Garrett are in love and ready to take the next step. It didn’t bother me when she mentioned Arie several times. I got the feeling she was just letting them know she empathized with the feelings they were having during the final stages of the process. I don’t see Jason as the next bachelor. I still can’t get past his greasy hair lol.

  38. Karen Rochetta says:

    I’ll say two things….yes to too much Arie, I said the same thing, and yes to Jason as The Bachelor!

  39. Amy says:

    Ugh, I can’t believe how many girls are on team Garrett! Compared to Jason, he comes off as a caveman! He is way too one dimensional and it bothers me how he takes NO responsibility for his failed marriage. He talks about how manipulative his ex-wife was, but it takes two to tango, buddy! Why did he go through with the marriage?! I feel like Garrett is a golden retriever and will like any girl that smiles at him. All he can say about Becca is that she’s ‘pretty and nice’ whereas Jason was able to actually articulate what he loved about her and what made her unique in more than three words. 🙂

    I wish she would have ended up with Jason but agree that if you don’t feel it, you don’t feel it. Obviously, he needs to be the next Bachelor.

    As for Blake, I think he’s just letting his nerves get the best of him but think he would be better for Becca in the long term. At least he has a personality!

  40. Valerie says:

    Two thing. First, I will be shocked if she doesn’t choose Blake. And second, Jason HAS to be the next Bachelor. Out of the top 3 he was my favorite! He is such a great guys and oh so cute!

  41. Jennifer says:

    Yes, agree with you on all counts. JASON FOR BACHELOR!

  42. I honestly don’t like any of the picks but out of the three I like Jason and Blake the most. Since she’s let Jason go, I guess I’m rooting for Blake. However, Blake was a bit too clingy for me. I think he’s sensitive and such a sweet guy (there’s nothing wrong with a guy having those traits) but I think he let’s his mind get the best of him and he just needs to chill. I don’t like Garrett at all. I just feel like he’s a bit meh and on top of this, I heard that he’s had troubling/concerning opinions. It’ll be interesting to see how this all goes!
