Seventeen are left. Who will be
voted out sent home tonight?
The aftermath of the rose ceremony is ugly. The guys’ house is a disaster. I don’t think this would have happened with the girls being in the house. Boys are gross.
Harrison comes in and tells the guys that there will be two one-on-one dates and one group date this year. Obviously all the guys are vying for the one-on-one, unless they’re here to make friends. Date card! “Chase, let’s get physical. Love, Jojo”
Chad: “I already know that Jojo and I are in a better place than the rest of them.”
Harrison sighs as he cleans up outside.
Jojo waits for Chase to arrive. They head into a yoga studio for hot yoga. It’s awkward. They’re doing some couples yoga. Jojo is definitely attracted to Chase. Jojo sits on Chase’s lap, face to face, legs wrapped around him. They look into each others’ eyes. Chase can’t handle it any more and kisses her. Jojo says she feels like she’s known Chase longer than a week.
Back at the house, Daniel and Chad have a bromance going on with their working out.
Chase and Jojo head out to dinner. Jojo tells Chase that she felt really connected with him during their yoga experience. He made her feel comfortable, safe and protected. Chase tells Jojo how important it is to find the right person, as marriage is a one-and-done kind of thing. Jojo asks him if he could see finding a soul mate in this kind of situation. He says getting engaged is a scary situation as it is, but if there is enough love to combat that fear, why not? Jojo says she’s excited about him. She then picks up the rose. She says she can see a future with him. Already. On their first date. He says he wants to be a part of her world.
They then head into a private Charles Kelly concert and dance. I think I like Chase. He’s a pretty solid individual.
Date card! “Jordan, Grant, Wells, James F, Christian, Ali, Daniel, Vinny, Nick, Evan, Alex, Chad. Love has no secrets. Jojo”
Chad says he doesn’t want to go. He just wants one-on-one time later. He doesn’t want to spend time with twelve guys. He wants to just take his name off. Evan: “Is there a sharpie?” Chad: “Evan, stop talking.” Some of the guys talk about how this is a team thing, and that’s how they have to see it. Jordan: “Let’s hope whatever team Chad’s on it’s a bench press competition, not a spelling contest.” Chad: “You’re a 27-year-old failed football player. You’ve done nothing with your life besides throw a piece of leather.” Chad and Alex stare each other down.
The guys head into limos to see Jojo. She’s taking them to a theatre show. Some lady comes on stage and fakes an orgasm. This is … awkward. They better not be doing the same thing. I’m not a fan of this. I might just have to skip ahead. Ok, apparently it’s a sex show where they expose their deepest darkest secrets. The guys have 45 minutes to prepare a story. This should be not boring.
Jojo thinks sex is really important in a relationship. Let’s see how you feel after these stories, shall we?
Grant! He’s 16 and wants to have sex. He texts a girl to meet him at the park with two sleeping bags zipped together. It takes 15 minutes for them to get into it, then 30 seconds later a spotlight is on them. Cops handcuff him. Face down wearing only a condom. Awkward.
The guys filter through. Daniel’s story is disgusting. Evan is next up. He’s said ahead of time that he’s going to talk about Chad. He tells the audience that he’s a erectile dysfunctional professional. He aludes to Chad’s steroid leading to erectile dysfunction. He and Chad have a bit of an altercation on Evan’s way back to his seat.
Chad’s up! He asks Jojo to the stage. He tries to kiss her in front of everyone but she turns her cheek. Chad punches the door on his way back stage. Some of the guys chest bump. Chad goes up to Evan and tells him that he’s going to die. The guys tell him to chill.
The group heads out to dinner. Jordan takes Jojo aside and tells her that in his previous relationship he put other things ahead of it and he doesn’t want to do that again. Jojo says that she’s really excited about him. He says he’s only said the L word once besides to his family. They kiss for a while. He’s my favourite. I picked him from day one and I’m sticking with him. I picked Lauren B on the first episode of last season, so who’s to say I won’t guess right this time?
Someone sits down with Jojo and a second later Chad walks in. Jojo says that the dude had just sat down so Chad walks ten feet away, sits on a stool, and starts whistling.
Back at the house the remaining guys guess as to what is going on on the group date. They guess correctly with “dog fight”. Date card! “James T, let’s kick it old-school. Love, Jojo”
Chad stalks Jojo’s conversations with the other guys. Finally it’s Chad’s turn. He tells Jojo that he would have rather chilled and not been on a date with 12 other dudes. She asked what happened with him and Evan. He evades the question. She then tells him that she sees different sides of him, one with the guys and one with her. Evan then comes and steals Jojo away. “Damn it, Evan,” says Chad.
Evan is so awkward. He tells Jojo that he’s not staying if Chad stays. He goes back and tells the guys that he was stronger with Jojo than he’s ever been. Jojo comes back and picks up the group date rose. Before giving it out, she grabs Evan away. … and she gives him the rose. WTF? I just can’t get over how creepy he is. They go back to the group and everyone is kind of taken aback. Chad is dumbfounded. Jojo looks over at him and is confused. “Is this for real? Is this a real situation going on here?” Jojo calls him out on being disrespectful. Chad walks away, “Where’s another door?” Jordan: “Chad is a time-bomb waiting to explode.”
James Taylor and Jojo are dressed in ’50s garb driving a ’50s car. They walk in to dancing lessons going on. Just after James Taylor told Jojo that he can’t dance. Well, they both can’t dance apparently.
Back at the house there is a security guard following Chad around. Chad is all, “I’m just trying to be myself. I’m not trying to be the tough guy in the house.”
Jojo and James Taylor finish their dance lessons, walk outside, and find a swing dancing party going on. They laugh. A lot. And maybe they dance ok?
Daniel asks Chad what’s going on and says that the guys think he’s a loose cannon. He asks Chad to take it down a notch.
James Taylor asks Jojo what the best thing about the day was. Jojo says that seeing the smile on his face was so good. They get more into personal stuff and James Taylor says that he was picked on as a kid, because he had big ears and a long neck and wasn’t the best looking kid. He’s always considered himself an underdog. He doesn’t have much self-confidence except he does. Jojo says that he’s none of the things he thinks he is. She offers him the rose and he accepts. He then brings out his guitar and she is stoked. They follow the singing with kissing. James Taylor: “Love is definitely, possibly in the horizon.” Jojo: “I can see a future with James.”
The next morning, Chad is grunting and working out and the guys wonder if they’ll live to see another day. Chris Harrison comes in and declares that there will not be a cocktail party. They’re going right into the rose ceremony. But wait, they’re going to have an all-day pool party.
Evan follows Chris Harrison and tattles on Chad. Harrison comes into the house and pulls Chad out. Chad says he hasn’t started anything, that it’s all on the other guys. Harrison tells Chad to simma down nah and to work it out with the guys.
Chad walks back into the house threatening the guys under his breath. TO BE CONTINUED.
Previews show blood and fighting and this could get interesting!
Part two of the two-day special is here.
You know, I’m wondering if this whole blogging-about-the-Bachelorette thing is worth it. Is anyone even reading them? If you read these posts, can you comment? I’m not trying to be a comment whore, just wondering if anyone’s actually reading. I apologize for being needy! And if you are reading this, thank you. You’re worth it.
