Did anyone see the Bachelor last night?
It struck me how it exposed exactly the worst parts of how women can treat eachother!
They start gossiping about Olivia because they are jealous – make fun of her toes, her breath, etc behind her back
Then one girl ‘man’s up’ and tells her they are talking about her, and she already has a list of things that she guesses that she is obviously already self consious about! – Is it my legs? My cankles?
This killed me: ….”My toes?…They are talking about my toes?”…
And then – then jump all over Jubilee for making a JOKE saying ‘does anyone want to take my date?’ because she’s afraid of getting in a helicopter. Cue everybody taking it waaaaaaaay too seriously and staging an intervention against her because that really hurt other girl’s feelings and she must not be taking it very seriously.
OMG – RELAX EVERYONE.

The thing I never get is how upset they get over other girls going on dates with him or him kissing someone else.
Did they not know how this works?

I agree! They were a bunch of mean girls to Jubilee.

One of the craziest moments for me was when Ben comes in very upset about a death of a close family friend and Olivia pulls him aside and starts crying about how she is self conscious about her legs! What??? This show is crazy.

I love the Bachelor for exactly this reason. It’s like a step by step guide into how not to behave in any given circumstance. I watch it to make myself feel better about my decisions in life because no matter how awful I’m feeling, at least I’m not crying because someone I’ve known for 45 seconds picked another girl to go on an orchestrated date to a jacuzzi store.

I’ve even gotten dh hooked on this show. it’s so funny. Olivia is awful, she is carrying on a relationship in her head. Everything is a ‘sign!’ lol
Im so sad Lace left. I will miss her trying to convince eveyone, including herself, that she’s not crazy.

I felt SOOOO bad for Jubilee! Like, she just had a wonderful and deep date and told Ben that her entire family is dead and the other girls are screaming at her that she isn’t taking THEIR feelings into consideration. Jubilee was the only one who actually treated Ben like a husband who had a bad day, no judgement or self promotion, just helping him relax during a stressful time. It’s not like they were naked or covered in oil…
I majorly feel Jubilee, sometimes I don’t get along with girls either, especially catty ones like half the house this season.

Olivia is the worst!
I get why the girls dont like Jubilee, she comes across really standoffish and different from the rest. I just don’t love her. But I think the other girls need to realize that attacking another girl in front of Ben just makes them look bad! It happens every season. Amber looked like an idiot.
All the drama and trash makes for awesome tv. I am really enjoying this season so far!

Did you watch the after show? They invited Lace to be on Bachelor in Paradise which she will very likely do of course

Last night’s episode drove me crazy, because the girls were SO mean! I don’t like Olivia, but she doesn’t seem to be that outwardly mean or rude to the other women. Yet they bash her every chance they get and sink so low as to make fun of her TOES? That is just pathetic. It reminds me of the old adgae, “What Susie says about Sally says more about Susie than Sally.” I hate to be cliche, but it totally is jealousy, because Olivia is confident and doesn’t seem threatened by anyone else.
Also, the way they treated Jubilee was just INSANE! She seems like the sweetest woman. She made a JOKE about the helicopter because she was scared and playing it off. COME ON. Also, she gave him a massage because he had told her it was his favorite thing and she was trying to make him feel better after the death of his family friends. It was not sexual at all! I thought it was sweet.
Amber made herself look really bad by attacking Jubilee IN FRONT OF BEN. What an idiot.
I’ve been on both sides where I’ve been the popular girl and I’ve been the quiet, complicated girl that people don’t always get, so I completely relate to Jubilee and feel for her. Just because she’s quiet and shy doesn’t mean she’s a bad person and deserves for everyone to bash her incessantly behind her back.
The girls this season are really catty; it’s disappointing. Usually a majority of them become friends.

My Darling Husband and I watch together because the cattiness and drama is so entertaining!! And before saying it highlights how poorly women treat each other because there is just as much drama when the roles are reversed. I think guys really have more of a competitive attitude overall so those girls always come across much worse. It’s such a weird situation to put yourself in.
I feel weird about the Jubilee situation. I think she brought a lot of it upon herself sulking and being very stand-offish, it wasn’t just her poor sense of humor. She looked like she didn’t want to be there, then awkwardly just comes into some convo and it’s weird. Then goes off to sulk. Does it warrent being callled out? Probably not. I get being shy or a tough past, but you’ve had 2 other girls leave on their own accord saying this situation isn’t right for them. The other girls (and likely the producers) aren’t going to change things up to accommodate you and it’s part of what you sign up for.
Olivia get’s what she signed up for. She didn’t bat an eye when she heard girls were talking about her. She’s probably a more self aware than insecure. She worked/works as a newscaster… her looks are part of her job and I doubt she takes it personally. I’m much more concerned with how she thinks she and Ben have some secret communication thing going on.

Every season I tell myself I’m not going to get sucked into watching “The Bachelor” – and every season, here I am. 🙂
But like others have said – do these women not know what they signed up for? Um, you’re dating the same guy. He’s making out with several of you during the same short time frame. You’ve spent all of 10 minutes with the guy and you’re “in love with him” and saying “Ben is my husband.” Shaking my head….
I definitely agree that Olivia is insecure. She strikes me as a little bit socially awkward as well.

I also never get “I’m in a relationship with him” thing. No. Youre not. You are only in a relationship with him if you end up winning.
