The date activity is a love triangle tango. Nothing more needs to be said except to include this action shot:

The guys' faces!
The first time I watched this date through I was pretty upset about Jojo sending Derek home, but upon a second watch I realized she is simply more attracted to Chase. I felt their 1-on-1 time with him on this date felt like her prompting him for her Words of Affirmation, when frankly he does not seem to be a naturally effusive guy, but their chemistry is undeniable. On one hand, there's a guy who she seems to know better (I'm not presuming to know for sure), who's telling her he's falling in love with her and giving her all the validation she could want. Yet, there she was, nudging another (more reticent) guy to give her a fraction of that validation. The choice she made is a wonderfully real and human one, and served as a metaphor of sorts for every woman in the world who's ever dated more than one man.

As Derek crawls into his black car, there's a funny shot of a crew member...

So incognito.

Now for the aforementioned cheesaliciousness. While I was legitimately sad to see Derek go (he really was one of my favorites), I found his entire departure segment insanely hilarious. From the butchered performance of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", the misplaced use of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", and Derek's teary "Why am I crying?", to the masterful mashing together of all of the above...

Comedic perfection.

ROSE CEREMONY

During the Cocktail Party, another little snippet of Luke's great sense of humor—and by finding it so funny, Jojo's great sense of humor—is shown...

People like to ask me, "So is it real? Or is it scripted?" My usual response is that it's staged, not scripted. They can't and don't put words in your mouth, but they set up situations to encourage certain words come out of your mouth. Obviously, I can't speak for the lead's experience, but to me, this Rose Ceremony was a perfect example of why people could think this show is scripted. Even as a former contestant and one who insists the show isn't scripted, I couldn't help but find the following exchange unconvincing...

Like, first of all, it's safe to say both James Taylor and Alex were on the chopping block this week. (They weren't going to have the last two be, say, Luke and Alex, as it'd be too obvious who was staying and who was going.) And just by virtue of being on the chopping block in Episode 6, it's safe to say neither James Taylor or Alex are "winning" this thing. So why string it all out? Oh yeah, because Hometowns aren't until Episode 8. We still "need" another episode to drag out the narrowing down to Final 4. (For the record, I don't think anyone believed this double elimination feint for a second.)

Бросилось в глаза когда просматривал. Эпизод с Джорданом. Джо говорит "The more time I spend with you, I know who you are, and I trust you. Thank you for telling me that." И выражение его лица в этом момент.


Как говорится, вместо тысячи слов.

The Bachelorette's JoJo Fletcher on Jordan Rodgers' Confession He's Been 'Living in the Shadow of His Brother'

We are BACK! That was a long two weeks! Fortunately we get to kick off this week in the beautiful countryside of Argentina. Coming into this week I knew that things were going to be a little more difficult given the fact that I made the decision to not send anyone home at the last rose ceremony. While I'm sure many of you had mixed emotions about that, it was important for me to have this week with all of those guys in order to get some clarity.

Starting off my dates for the week was my first one-on-one with Alex. We had spent a good amount of time together on our two-on-one date back in Pennsylvania, but that was also under the cloud of Chad. This was very different. Just me and Alex for the entire day. And I knew going into this date that there was a lot to talk about. Watching it back, I now better understand how he was feeling after that last rose ceremony. He was hurt and confused, and I don't blame him – that night was a confusing night for me too.
One thing that really stood out to me was hearing Alex say that this date was not only a time for him to see if he could fall in love with me, but also to see if "I could fall in love with him as well." I respect him a lot for saying that because it's true. I've said this before and I will say it again, this is a two-way street.

Taking that long car ride out to the countryside with Alex was a good chance for us to spend some quality time together. We thumb-warred, rapped, ate Pringles, randomly pointed at weird objects but most importantly really enjoyed just hanging out together in a setting that felt more normal and realistic.

As we arrived to the Estancia, we were both overwhelmed by how beautiful this place was … and to see two real-life Gauchos waiting to greet us! I don't know about y'all, but seeing Alex suit up in his gaucho gear had me dying laughing! But he was such a good sport and I personally think he pulled that beret off pretty darn well. (Side note: Not sure if y'all saw me completely fail at trying to get on that horse but it was pretty embarrassing for a Texas girl!)

As our date continued on, I felt myself really enjoying being around Alex. No surprise there – he and I had always had fun together. We laughed and joked, and also shared such a sweet moment lying down with that horse.

It was the most connected I had felt with him. However, I also knew in the back of my mind that something still didn't feel 100 percent. Going into dinner, I knew where my heart was. I knew something was off and I was struggling with that. Hearing Alex open up to me and tell me he was falling in love with me should have been such an amazing moment, but instead it filled me with sadness. I knew in that moment that a romantic relationship wasn't in our future. As hard as it was to send Alex home that night, I knew it was the right thing to do.

After a tough goodbye with Alex, I couldn't wait to spend the day with Jordan. My last conversation with Jordan had felt strained because it was mostly focused on the "Jordan-James Great Poker Debacle of 2016" and I knew it was starting to come off as though I was constantly questioning him. After that week I really wanted to let Jordan know that even though we had these tough conversations, it didn't mean I was going to run from trying to explore our relationship further.

Taking a private jet to a winery in Mendoza and picking our grapes to attempt to make our own wine (a.k.a grape juice) was so fun. It was our very own I Love Lucy moment.

It was the perfect day, but I was looking forward to dinner so we could really sit down and talk. Everything Jordan shared with me at dinner really opened my eyes up to the man that he is. Hearing him talk about his experiences, living in the shadow of his brother and the pain of not having Aaron in his life really hit home with me. That was the first time I saw this incredibly vulnerable and honest side to Jordan. He opened up about issues that aren't the easiest to talk about and it meant a lot to know he trusted me enough to share these things. Hearing him tell me he was in love with me for the first time was the perfect ending to what I would say was the best day we had shared together.

Robby, James and Chase were the three guys on my only group date this week, and I had planned an unbelievable date that had us camping in the majestic Argentinian countryside. Mother Nature, unfortunately, had other ideas. So, I decided to do a little staycation! I booked a big suite back in Buenos Aires and decided to set up camp indoors. I mean greasy food, games, Robby stripping down?

This was a hilarious and fun day for all of us. I honestly ended up LOVING this date. If only we could have been in pajamas!

All of my conversations with these guys were great, and there were moments when I thought the rose was headed to each guy. But my conversation with Robby stood out above the others; he was just so expressive with his feelings and his emotions. I just felt so confident in Robby's feelings for me, and that's really why I chose to give him the rose to meet his family. Despite being a little worried about the ex-girlfriend situation (more on that next week!), his attempt to ease my concerns proved he was in this for me and I chose to trust in him and believe him.

Last but not least, I had my date with Luke. It had been too long since our last one-on-one date, and I had really missed spending some quality time with him. Knowing that Luke is a Texas boy at heart and his love for horses, I saved this date just for him.

The best part of this date for me was getting to see Luke in his element. You should just see him around those horses. He is so calm and so loving with them. It's almost magical to watch.

Getting to sit down and talk to Luke about his life and family really started to help me picture what my life with him would be like … and that excited me. It was so meaningful to hear him tell me that despite the chaos around us, our connection felt more real to him than anything else. Luke has a way of easing my fears, and at this point I began to realize that he was a calming force for me.

I knew Luke was someone I felt strongly about. I really just wanted to get to the rose ceremony because after that day there were no more questions for me. I didn't need a dinner to know that I was headed back to Texas to meet Luke's family.

I realized at this point that having a cocktail party would only make my decisions harder, and at the end of the day wouldn't change the feelings I was already having. I had spent time with all of these guys this week, and by the end I knew what I had to do. Saying goodbye to James was one of the most difficult goodbyes I have ever had to make. He has a heart of gold, and it broke my heart to be the person to ever cause him an ounce of sadness. My relationship with James was honest, respectful and very special to me … but, unlike my other remaining relationships, we were missing that spark and I had to face that.

Next week I'm headed to meet the families of the four men I care so much about. We all know how my own hometown visit went last season (disaster!), and I would be lying if I said there wasn't some drama this time around. Tune in to check it out!

Xoxo,
JoJo

Sharleen Joynt on The Bachelorette: Episode 7

I’ve just come from taping Us Weekly‘s Facebook Live recap, where it was quickly established that the universal opinion on last night’s episode was that it was extremely bad and incredibly boring. There were varying speculations as to why. One was that this season’s crop of guys isn’t very exciting and they (or what we see of them, rather) are all variations of the same person. Another was that we’ve all been watching this show for so long that you pick up on the franchise patterns and everything becomes too predictable to be interesting. Lastly, my own opinion was that the remaining guys all get along too well for any drama to ensue. And since the Powers That Be insist on focusing on half-hearted conflicts between the men (who cares if Robby’s checked out a Argentinian chick or two? When in Rome!), rather than focusing on real conversations with JoJo or funny house antics, the result is milquetoast television. It says something that the only time Andy perked up during the episode was during commercial break to watch those Bachelor in Paradise previews.

Perhaps my issue was that so much of the episode felt spent on Alex, when since day one I’ve felt (and I think we’ve all felt) that he wouldn’t be a major contender. That’s not to pick on Alex; I thought his Chad confrontations were some of the most memorable moments of the season, and he’s clearly well-liked by the other guys, a major plus in my book. But it just seemed like a tedious waste of time to give him his first 1-on-1 in Week 7, when we all knew nothing was ultimately going to happen there. By far the highlight of the date (and perhaps the whole episode) was the gaucho “horse whisperer” (how incredible was that?!), but even then, JoJo’s horse cuddling with Alex felt fake. Every kiss, hand-hold, and elbow stroke felt forced and, as a viewer, incredibly patronizing. I commend JoJo for sending Alex home on the date (her face when he uttered ILY was fantastic), but that whole exchange felt too familiar. (Cody’s date on Andi’s season, anyone? And even that was in Episode 6 and thus less tedious!)

Interestingly, while Group Dates tend to be more entertaining (although this one was nothing short of abysmal), it was Jordan’s and Luke’s 1-on-1s that kept me from completely tuning out. As jaded as I am regarding this show, it’s still a beautiful thing to watch two people learn each other and, yes, maybe even fall in love. The way JoJo lit up when Jordan said he loved her, or the way she watched Luke explain breaking a horse… Those are the great moments, certainly the most redeeming moments of this overall phoned-in episode.

By the way, while writing this recap I texted Andy saying, “I’m shitting on this episode HARD.” Did I lie?

My predictions for next week are as follows!

1. Jordan, 27: When Jordan’s name was on the date card I felt like he’d just had a 1-on-1, and looking back I realize he indeed had his in Episode 5. I didn’t mind, though, because the reverse of Alex’s date is spending 1-on-1s on guys who stand a real chance, and Jordan certainly fits that bill. I love JoJo’s transparency; she is super into Jordan and there’s seemingly no catching up to him at this point. As I said in the Us Weekly recap, his vulnerability when talking about his non-relationship with his brother warmed me to him. Also, when he described every step in his football career as being a disappointment and how football didn’t define him, I related so vividly that I got chills. That honest-bordering-on-dark hindsight is underrated. People seem mixed on Jordan but I like him. And JoJo reeeeally likes him.

2. Luke, 31: Does anyone not love Luke? He’s got the backstory, the look, that charming homegrown quality without seeming unflatteringly smalltown, and a sense of humour. If you’d told me on Night One that I’d have a baby crush on Southern-drawled, mumbly Luke by Episode 7 I’d have called you a liar. Yet there I was, watching him ride a horse like he rode a horse out of the womb, and I announced to Andy, “I think I find Luke attractive.” Okay, okay, so beyond my crush, JoJo seems to share my feelings tenfold, so he’s sticking around. LUKE STAYS, DAMMIT.

3. Chase, 29: I admit I was surprised Chase made it to Hometowns over James Taylor (especially right after JoJo effusively told James how special their relationship was to her), but as I said in my blog recap, JoJo is clearly very attracted to Chase. (At Us Weekly we also debated whether or not she loved the, ahem, chase.) I’m actually a big Chase advocate. I’ve heard some people call him “boring,” but I happen to like his quietness and reticence. As I stressed last week, not prematurely blurting ILY because it’s what’s “done” is a good thing. Above all, I think Jojo’s attracted to Chase enough to want to bring him to the Fantasy Suite, so my bet is he stays.

Going home next week…

4. Robby, 29: I don’t know what it is exactly about Robby but I (and everyone I talk to about him) just don’t trust him. His veneer strikes me as too pristine, his words and timing too calculated. When he prefaced sharing details about his ex as a gesture of his “love” for Jojo, it just stuck out as too thought-through. Who talks like that?? Why the needless reminder, and why not just share the story? I get the distinct feeling Robby’s playing us for fools, and I feel like Jojo will tap into that any day now and send him packing. I like a bit of reservation in my Bachelor/ette contestants (à la Chase) and find imperfections endearing. Robby has neither.
