Happy Week One Bachelor Nation!!!!
Who watched the show live, who had a viewing party, and still hasn’t watched it.. That being said, If you haven’t watched the first episode of Colton Underwood’s journey to find love I would STOP reading now. Spoilers will be announced.
I WARNED YOU, SO LETS GO!
So before I dive in, as I sat and watched with my sister and her sister in law, we noticed something. How come every girl on the show is in the early 20’s but they look like they are way over 30. Is it being on TV, the make up, the lighting. I don’t know but they all look AMAZING!
I don’t feel like I have heard the word “virgin” thrown around so much ever. Does it even still have meaning anymore? We get it.. He’s a virgin. Like I have said before, I don’t think its a bad thing. For the most part, the girls respected his virginity. I did feel like it was a bit much how Erica was needing to know so much how and why he was still a virgin. GIRL, he’s a virgin lets move on. (Oh gosh, now I’m using the word Virgin too much.)
The best thing Colton said, during the cocktail party was, “There are more girls here than I’ve dated in my entire life” That is a sign, this is going to be a ride!
So let’s talk about my favorites!! Hands down, Cassie and Hannah B! They just seem so down to earth, and perfect for Colton. I sense them being there for a while, but as all know how everything can change so fast, We after all are on Bachelor Time. I loved Hannah’s video about how sweet. Yet, she’s from Alabama and I don’t think I have ever met someone from there who is not sweet. I did laugh at some of the dib’s at Arkansas. So if you don’t recall or haven’t been watching the past few seasons. Tia who first appeared on Arie’s season and then in Bachelor in Paradise this past season dated Colton for a bit before he appeared on Becca’s season and then they re kindled their romance on this past season of Bachelor in Paradise, but since then have decided that being friends was a better fit for them. I want to say, I admire this for the both of them. People know who they are, and they are expecting Tia to be jealous but yet she is out there supporting here friend find his gal.
Sorry for the side rant, anyways back to all things bachelor. Let’s talk about Catherine. She’s is the one that is going to stir up the pot. I still can’t believe that she interrupted 4 times. I laugh about how the girls got so upset that she was out there trying to get her time. This is the thing, THIS IS THE BACHELOR. Time is limited and if you want the time you have to be present and you have to be willing to talk to him and find out any way to do that. Let’s face it, there isn’t enough time during night one for Colton to come to you and start a conversation. If your not willing to push through and go to Colton yourself, you might be on the wrong show. As much as I think Catherine might stir up the pot, I don’t think she is going to be this seasons trouble maker. I’m not quite sure who that is going to be yet, but I am excited to watch this all unfold.
THE SLOTH. GOT ME. I was laughing so hard when she got out of the limo. I was surprised that she kept up the game as long as she did. She took the role to the extreme. YOU DO YOU GIRL. I really didn’t think she would come out talking as fast as she did once, she took off the Sloth costume. Also, she must have been so warm. If you have ever worn any full costume you know what I am talking about.
Some of the girls, and the way they came out of the limo got me. Yet, I feel like in past seasons they have been much better. I also laughed during the preview of the police car. Did anyone else see it happening that there was no drama and it was going to be how someone got out of the limo. Oh ABC just getting our hearts racing.
I loved how “into” Cassie, Colton was. The look in eyes and how excited he got that she was a speech pathologist. He’s into her. She is going to be around for the long haul.
Now let’s talk about the first impression rose. When Chris Harrison brought it out, I was actually pretty stumped on who he was going to give it to. I didn’t see any “OH MY” moments between him and anyone. Then when they showed how he was comforting Hannah G. for being nervous. I saw it coming, she was getting that rose. Well sure enough she did and she is the cutest thing ever. I loved what he said about her. How she felt like home, how her presence lifted him up. You could tell how nervous they both were but you could also see how calm they were together.
I feel like this first episode is always SO HARD to pay attention because your trying to match the girl’s face with who they are. Even though most of them were pretty drunk. Well who wouldn’t be, Did you know that sometimes it takes up to 12 hours to film the first episode!!! 12 hours, plus alcohol…. WOW!
My top girls this season are; Cassie, Hannah B, Hannah G, Bri, Catherine, Heather, Demi, Caelyn. I can’t wait to watch this adventure for each of them.
What are your picks for this season, let me know in the comments. I will talk to you all next week for Bachelor Week 2! Have a great week y’all!!
