Mantacea, CA with Garrett
Garrett’s family owns an agricultural business. He shows her a “planter” and I shoot up off my couch in cold sweats suffering from severe Farmer Chris Soules PTSD. Don’t do this to me, ABC. Put farming in the grave next to Chris Soules’ clean driving record. BOOM. ROASTED.
Garrett walks into his living room like he’s headlining at a comedy club. The energy and the applause in the room is so ridiculous I feel like I’m watching an SNL sketch. And no, that’s not a compliment to your dumb Chris Farley impression, Garrett. Obviously the whole family is like don’t break Garrett’s heart like that dumb betch ex-wife of his. Garrett’s mom is talked up as a tough mama bear and she couldn’t have been softer. Everyone approves of Becca, of course. Becca says it all feels like it’s falling into place.
Buffalo, NY with Jason
Jason takes Becca to a wing contest with what appears to be all college kids. Becca passes the test that it’s blue cheese only with buff wangz and thank God because I thought the city of Buffalo was going to have to kick her out for being such a n00b. If you eat ranch with wings you have garbage taste buds and that seems pretty obvious. Then they go ice-skating and apparently my Mighty Ducks reference has been even more spot-on than I thought as Jason shows off his knuckle puck skillz.
Jason’s whole story with his family is that he’s guarded and will not be able to open up in time. Jason thinks love is missing Becca when she’s in a different room and basically talks himself into telling her he loves her. Even his mom was like u sure, bro? Either way, he tells her.
Bailey, CO with Blake
Blake brings Becca to his high school for a makeout sesh and to show her that he’s still down with his old teachers and coaches…well some of them. Remember when Blake shared last week that his mom had an affair with his coach and I compared his life to a TV show? Well that’s got nothing on this week as he takes Becca to the library and tells her he survived a school shooting at that very high school. Holy bananas. No joke his life is a teen drama TV show. I mean that literally looks like the exact library Peyton hid out with Lucas while her leg bled out. But quick turn, in the gym Betty Who is casually performing a concert. Was there any significance of Betty Who in a Colorado high school orrrrr? Also if you had forced me to name this artist without Becca announcing it or even one of her songs I would’ve failed miserably. Seems like Becca was her number one fan though with that grade A sing-along.
Blake is happy and in love and his parents see it but think his heart is gonna get stomped on, so they also pretend to be hard asses with Becca and ask how she feels. When will parents on this show understand that the girl is never gonna tell them who she’s going to choose at hometowns. Get your heads out of your asses. Also if you’re paying close attention, the one whose family keeps talking about how worried they are that he’s falling too fast will one HUNDO percent get his heart DESTROYED. So there’s that unfortunate incident to look forward to, which will probably lead to him finding redemption after heartache by being the next Bachelor.
Another Colorado town with Colton
Colton takes Becca shopping for gifts to bring to the children’s hospital with him. Really laying it on thick here. He’s a sweetie with the sick kids and Becca’s ovaries grew three sizes. Sorry did I say ovaries? I meant her boner. Except as much as she wants to scoop Colton’s virginity, she also wants him to know she’s concerned he’s never been in another serious relationship.
Colton gathers his entire extended family for a hang. How overwhelming must that be to meet a guy’s 3rd cousins on TV? Colton looks for props from his dad for communicating about Tia like an adult. He could not have asked for daddy’s approval harder. Also, why does Colton’s dad know about Tia if all they did was smooch one time? HMMmm. Becca says she wants to find her person to the zillionth parent tonight and I’m about to go insane. Does Grey’s Anatomy get a cut from the Bachelor every week for the amount that they call someone their person? Gawd that’s obnoxious. Also I’ve probably legitimately asked that before because that’s how much the phrase is used on this show. Anyway, moving on to Becca discussing Colton’s virginity with his mom. YIKES. Colton tells Becca that he loves her.
Becca meets up with her fake girl gang that just want more screen time and aren’t her actual best friends. She recaps what’s been going on for this group of over-actors. She announces that Jason is the best kisser in the world, which makes me hope that her future husband doesn’t watch this back because it sure as shit ain’t Jason. Tia interrupts Becca MID-SENTENCE while she’s talking about Colton to have a private chat, allowing for the girls to practice their best Whitney Port shocked faces. And that is how we know whatever confession will follow is sure to be ridiculous if she couldn’t let Becca get through a sentence. Tia confides in Becca that she still has feelings for Colton and it makes her sick that Becca’s considering him. WELL TIA YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE YOU BIG DUMMY. Obviously now Becca feels like a pile of hot garbage for stealing her “friend’s” man. I think I hate Tia now.
Right before his fate is sealed, Colton asks Chris what REALLY goes on in the fantasy suite because he’s nervous about putting out. Chris is like we’re not Pornhub bro, when the door closes you can do whatever. (Until Mike Fleiss makes a show about that too.)
