I just watched tonight!! Sooooo good. But I’m sad they danced around the issue with Corinne and pretended they actually addressed it rather than saying nothing and having a jr. high school sex Ed class.

i still have no idea what happened. But if you’re going to completely circumvent it, at least circumvent it with a discussion about consent and race that goes deeper than 12-year-old level.

 MsPlucky :  Every time Taylor talks I just want to tell her to shut up and stop referring to herself as “intelligent”.

ilyik :  She’s just too much. It’s scary to think she’s counseling people. 

littlecats :  But that doesn’t get ratings! And ratings are life! And life needs money! 🙄

This is the first season of Paradise I’m watching – I started on the Bachelor Nation train with Kaitlyn’s season and finally actually recongnize the people on the show.  So sleazy but I can’t stop watching!!!  I only am halfway through the ep, but I like Dean and Kristina together, they’re adorable (if this is already over by the end of the first ep, womp womp).

Why is it ok to ridicule someone for his height or lack thereof?

ilyik :  I haven’t watched yet but is she still questioning everyone’s “emotional intelligence”?? undecided

I have to agree with the PP that said Taylor is one of the worst ever. I didn’t need to ever see her face on my tv screen again.

Yes, Taylor is the annoying…”entrepreneur.” I also find D-Lo (or whatever her name is) kind of obnoxious. She’s beautiful, but every other sound out of her mouth is a fake sounding laugh/giggle.  

But I know we only get to see what’s edited for us to see…so I’m sure they’re all lovely people.

So…I hate admitting this but I hopped on the Bachelor train a couple years ago.  Errr…I think on Andi’s season?  I haven’t watched Bachelor in Paradise and am really confused as to how it works?  Like it really just looks like a lot of drinking and a lot of sex, which I’m guessing is what it actually is haha.  Do people get roses?  Do people get “voted off” or whatever??  I should probably watch but life is cuh-razy busy right now and I have no time for my smut TV.

Well since I’m drinking…the Bachelor people I do know (can’t remember seasons to save my life)…I hate Nick Viall.  He isn’t attractive and Vanessa could do way better.  Andi and JoJo were adorable as Bachelorettes.  Is JoJo even still with whatshisname?  Chris the farmer is a hottie with a body.  It is a bummer that he was responsible for that car/tractor accident a few months ago.  Chase on JoJo’s season (I think?) was my favorite…ANOTHER hottie with a body.    My husband just found out that I’m a Bachelor watcher and he laughed any time I would jump onto Hulu to watch the latest episode hah.  My brother lives in Madison so I kindaaaa want to go to visit him and stake out the farmer’s market.  This last season with Rachel I actually thought she “followed her heart” or whatever, but I don’t think it’s gonna last.  I couldn’t get over Bryan’s ears this past season and I don’t think he and Rachel will work out cause his mom is psycho.

Corrine makes me laugh.  I mean she’s cray, obvi, but she actually did grow on me.  Taylor was obnoxious, I’m sure she is on paradise too.  That season was plagued by stupid Taylor/Corrine nonsense.  I s’pose good ratings, right?  DeMario is awful and needs to go away ASAP.

The entire “process” is so ridic and I laugh every time someone says they are “here for the right reasons”.  “Trust the process” and all that junk.  Then you look on their instagram and voila!  They have sponsors who pay them money.  “Right reasons” hahahahaha…

So, so many thoughts from the episodes this week:

  • DEAN. Seriously, Kristina is a total babe and she is leaps and bounds more stable/mature than many women her age. He is stupid to go for just the physical right off the bat. Plus, it is obvious his communication skills are severely lacking. Unless it’s all giggles and superficial talk, I really don’t see him being a good long term fit for anyone
  • Lacey. I actually feel pretty bad for her. She might not be as stereotypically beautiful as some of the other women there, but you can tell she is quirky and has a good heart. I think she needs to find her “Evan”.
  • Raven– I like Raven, I always have. But homegirl likes to throw some shade here and there! She’s kind of a not-so-subtle-shit-talker when she’s being interviewed solo. I think having a few guys chase her early on kind of went to her head.
  • Adam– who knew this guy would be so sought after?! Granted on Rachels season he got about zero air time, but he is slowly growing on me.
  • D-Lo. I didn’t really get the appeal from her on her season of the Bachelor and don’t get it now. She’s gorgeous, but she doesn’t actually ever SAY anything. Just a half giggle all the time, she’s been on 2 seasons of reality TV and I couldn’t tell you a single sentence she has strung together!

 

One’s I wish would just go away are… Amanda, Robbie and Jasmine. Jaz and her attitude just really is such a turn off to me, and she’s another one who thinks she is just hot shit, I think it’s her and Raven buddying up and amping each other up!

But my money is on Daniel coming in and Alexis getting together. That would be amazing.

Ok I’m behind on episodes. I just watched the episode where Wells kissed Danielle M. I was swooning! They are super cute together and it looks like they’re currently dating (yay!)

ljm308 :  Chase was one of my favorites until I read that he is supposedly dating Tomi Lahren. Gag.

fromatoz :  I can’t handle Dean either.  I know he’s only 25 but I feel so bad for Kristina 🙁 D.Lo really annoys me and I wish Robbie would go away.
